The healing powers of the forest

Skogens helande förmågor

The forest is a very mysterious place that holds far more wisdom and abilities than one can imagine. It has long been a place for legends and tales, as well as for performing rituals or creating medicines. In today's society, many people are disconnected from nature, but can still feel a sense of healing from a walk in the woods. How does this happen?

The forest heals and the trees heal

In addition to the fact that the forest is good for landing in the body, trees have a lot of healing properties . Researchers in Japan have concluded that forest walks have a positive effect on both blood pressure, the immune system and heart rate. They have also developed a word for healing that takes place via the forest - shinrin-yoku, which means "forest bath". In other words, hugging a tree can make you physically healthier!

The forest makes you smart

In addition to physically healing you, the forest can also contribute to mental clarity and arriving at decisions. Therefore, a forest walk is perfect if you have something to think about or ponder over. Many great thinkers have used the forest when they came up with revolutionary ideas, such as Plato and Aristotle who often sat and thought under olive trees, or Buddha who became enlightened under a Bodhi tree. In other words, find a favorite tree when you're out and about, and sit under it for a while. Maybe its energy will influence you to come up with the next wonder of the world?

The forest cleanses your energy field

Going for a walk in the woods without any headphones or cell phone is not only great for your physical and mental health, but also for your energetic well-being! The forest has an incredible ability to cleanse one's energy field and receive negative thoughts and patterns. It is because of this ability that one often feels more clear-headed in the forest, and why so many great thinkers have come to insight there. The forest simply clears out unnecessary energies that have settled in your field that prevent you from thinking at your best!

A tip to let the forest heal you

A great way to take advantage of the forest's abilities is to take a few minutes' break on your next walk and find a place near some trees or a rock where you can sit. Then visualize with your mind how all that you want to let go of flows down through your feet and into the earth, while a white, clear light flows into you from above. You can also use your walk in the forest to connect with your guides or some other forest spirits.
