Real Psychic Experiences

Driven By A Rusty Legend


On my first submission, Heart of Ivy, a commenter suggested I attempt to approach tree in my backyard. Shortly after, I took this person's advice, and went out of doors.

On this day, it was a chilly and clear winter day. Around noon, I gathered my pajamas about myself, and headed outside, to the tree who tilts forlornly.

I circled the tree, trailing my hand along the rough bark. "Hello," I said softly. The tree had no response.

My hand suddenly dragged over something sharper and inorganic than the now numbing ridges of bark. Where my hand was, a long, rusty nail had been hammered into the tree. This brought to mind the stories I have heard of how to kill a witch: draw her picture on a tree and drive a nail through where her heart would be.

I tried pulling out the nail with my bare hands, all the while murmuring to the tree, to comfort it. By this time, I figured it was no use trying to get a response from this tree; my previous experience was but a figment of my imagination, and I probably looked like a fool, talking to this tree. I took one long look at the nail, laid my hand on the tree, and whispered, "That nail looks painful, would you like to get it out?"

It was then that I got a response.

The tree, not literally, had leaned into my hand, and waves of exasperation and eagerness rolled off of the tree. Startled initially, I smiled slightly, and resolved to do that soon. I have not done it, but I do plan to do it during the upcoming weeks in the early spring weather.

...I know the tree isn't happy with a nail stuck in it, but it must be happy that you'll take it out. And the thought of that moment of you with the tree's feelings just sounds so cute! ❤ ❤

Such a happy tree! It has been scientifically proven that our emotions and thoughts and the emotions and thoughts of everything living effects all other living things, including plants and bacteria... The name of the particular scientist who originally discovered this escapes me, but I guess you're more sensitive to this connection.

I remember when I was little I used to wash wounds in trees and put leaves over the areas like bandages... I kind of still would, If I saw a hurt tree.

I thank you and I'm sure that the tree will thank you too. Take care.

I know there is no witch inside the tree, I merely thought of that when I noticed the nail. I had no intention of causing the tree more pain, and I will take your advice and take it out as soon as I am done posting this comment.

Hi there,
I'm happy that the tree interacted with you. Now that you have seen for yourself that trees are living individuals you may have a better understanding of them. The tree is asking for your help! So Please take out the nail as soon as you can. The tree has much wisdom to offer you if you help it. You can now hear it and sense what it tells you. Not all trees have spirits that dwell within them but yours does. You have been given the opportunity of a lifetime to see a world that many believe don't exist. There is no witch trapped in there. It's a tree spirit. I have two in my back yard that I communicate with on a regular basis. Trust me. You will not be sorry if you helped the tree. Also, Mother nature tends to pass over those who take care of the nature in a storm.

What she said. Why wait?
That poor tree must be in a lot of pain with that nail.

You should do it now before the sap starts flowing. Would you like a thorn stuck in your side simply because someone else was too distracted with some other thing to take it out? "Upcoming weeks"? A moral person would remove it immediately. Trees are no different than other life forms on this planet. It's the ego maniacal human that says otherwise. Get yourself a hammer and use the back of it to pull it out. The tree will thank you.
