Shamanic Forest Bathing in Germany

How It Works

Germany, June 2017

This article is a reflection on the insights gained during my recent trip to my home country, Germany, in June 2017.

This journey was really all about taking a break from the all pervasive conditioned responses to life, getting away from cold Dubai shopping malls and the unbearable summer heat in the Middle East.

I vowed to disconnect from technology as much as possible, aka going on a Smart Phone diet. I wanted to simply spend quiet time in pure nature.

With few exceptions, I stayed true to my resolve and spent each day a min. of 6 – 8 hours in nature, mostly inside forests, parks or walking along scenic riversides and beautiful lakes.

I visited the forests of Schwarzwald, Hunsrück, and Taunus and spent true quality time with myself walking and deep breathing the (mostly) fresh forest air and engaging in my favorite mode of “conversation” – talking to trees. I seriously consider trees my true and authentic friends.

Sadly, so many people nowadays have no idea how to connect to nature anymore, they are walking inside forests and have not the slightest clue that they can actually get relevant, useful and truthful information from trees.


Trees love to help and share their wisdom with us! And the best part – this type of consultation is absolutely FREE. The only humble return a tree would like to see is a sense of gratitude and thankfulness for sharing its wisdom.


All trees in the world are connected through a secret web of visible and invisible roots… 

“Trees dominate the world’s the oldest living organisms. Since the dawn of our species, they have been our silent companions, permeating our most enduring tales and never ceasing to inspire fantastical cosmogonies. Hermann Hesse called them “the most penetrating of preachers.” A forgotten seventeenth-century English gardener wrote of how they “speak to the mind, and tell us many things, and teach us many good lessons.”

During one of my extensive walks I heard a group of trees whispering to me “Nobody wants our knowledge and wisdom anymore!” It really hit me hard and I felt saddened that so much pristine and original wisdom remains untapped and unused. People living in the city have mostly lost their connection to the powerful ways how to get in tune with a tree spirit. For example, when seeking an answer one may ask a tree spirit to help clarify and bring light to a specific life situation one has been struggling with. Quiet the mind and just wait long enough for the answer to arise. It works like MAGICK! I really wished more people would come back to their senses and connect to nature grid instead of smart grid! When I visit the forest I always put out the “word”: “Who of you (trees) would like to talk to me today?” Usually I immediately get a number of trees volunteering and steering me towards the ONE who is the most suited to guide me and willing to let me get in tune with.


Personally, I feel blessed to have such a vivid connection and welcome access to trees.

Whenever I am near trees I enlist their benevolent help for all sorts of issues. For example, when I need to return what I call “unwanted gifts”. These are discordant energy darts emanated from a person (or group) who might deliberately use inappropriate or insulting language or put me in difficult situations or even try to harm me. I refer to such negative energy transfers directed at me, simply as “unwanted gift” that needs to be nullified and returned. To avoid an innuendo game of sending bad stuff back and forth, I do not send the harmful energy back to the person/group who directed it at me in the first place –

I simply say to tree spirit:

“Please act as my intermediary. Kindly take and return this unwanted gift of poison back to source – whoever, whatever and wherever source is.” Done!


This way I avoid getting into a battle of dark and ill-willed spirits and do not create more negative energy. Negative energy is what we already have in abundance on this planet. Usually after performing such a ritual I feel a lot better. I know from many occasions when I did this ceremony, that trees do have the power to act as our trusted helpers, and they are more than willing intermediaries gladly helping us to transport low vibrational and disturbing energies back to where they belong and can be neutralized.

It is very important not to fall into the trap of hating someone who (we believe) has wronged us, intentionally hurt us or put us in an adversary life situation. Hate is always a low vibrational state that keeps us in the dense realms of discordant material life. The feeling of hate doesn’t add to any positive change in the world nor in our own lives.

It’s ok to fully express anger at times, but once this feeling is adequately expressed, it’s vital to move on and stay in personal integrity and authenticity of true self – especially when it’s utmost challenging, difficult, or even seems impossible to do so because the blow we may have received from someone was so devastating and unexpected….

I made it habit to often ask trees for specific advice, e.g. if I should continue dealing with a certain person (about whom I may already have doubts), visit a specific place or sign up for a seminar (is it beneficial or just a waste of time). Without failing, trees have been giving me a lot of incredibly valuable information that is way beyond just a yes or no answer. So far, whenever I acted upon a tree’s advice, it turned out to be absolutely true and beneficial for me!


On my path seeking and uncovering truth about humanity’s peculiar ways, what’s happening on planet Earth, and where the world is now heading to, I came across this wonderful quote:


“To seek truth requires one to ask the right questions,

those void of truth never ask about anything because their ego

and arrogance prevent them from doing so. Therefore, they will always remain ignorant.

Those on the right path to Truth are extremely heart-driven and childlike

in their quest, always asking questions, always wanting to understand and

know everything – and are not afraid to admit they don’t know something.

However, every truth seeker does need to breakdown their ego first to see TRUTH.

If the mind is in the way, the heart won’t see anything.”

– Suzy Kassem


Indigenous peoples (such as the ones in Siberia, Mongolia, the Amazon and other remote places) are actually the Smart-People on Earth because they know how to tap into “Earth-Wisdom” and use it appropriately and wisely.


Technology kills intuition and soul!


The Western society – in contrast – is over-saturated with technology and people are rathertrusting a cold-wired smart phone app, tablet, Siri, etc. than their personal intuition. Manmade “smart-tech” (smart is just another word for total and automated surveillance) is void of spirit essence and therefore cannot nourish the soul. Such devices should only be used as a vehicle to make our lives easier. Very often technology is worshipped like a personal religion and a means of life in itself. This is a very dangerous trend and treacherous path that leads humanity down to the slaughterhouse of Artificial Intelligence taking over human life on planet earth – absolutely the wrong path…unless we stop it!

Peoples with their tribal community still intact have managed to preserve and keep earth wisdom for a very long time – more than 70,000+ years and still draw on it for everyday life situations including curing illness. Asking a smart-App for advice and blindly follow it would be unthinkable for someone who knows how to connect to Spirit in a natural way. In contrast connecting to true spirit is unthinkable and often unmanageable for most Western lifestyle indoctrinated individuals, as they have lost or abdicated their connection to soul and spirit altogether. This trend though sees some reversal by the awakening – still few ones – who wish not be uploaded to an artificial smart grid version of life.

In general though the Western society has been predominantly led into a dangerous obsession with faster, higher, supposedly better material outcomes and has now reached a point where it has more or less outlived and rendered itself not only totally morally bankrupt but fully incapable to connect to the spirits of nature anymore.

The Western trained (mass media indoctrinated) mind has been badly infiltrated (TV “programming”) through various mind control techniques. We all live under the incessant onslaught of corporate sponsored mass communication blasted on to us 24/7/365 through smart technology.

People are following and paying attention to redundant, fake, misleading, wrong and irrelevant information (such as celebrity news, following and accepting mainstream synthetic scientism based “medicine”, sending children to government indoctrination camps – aka schools, becoming total order followers even if order don’t make any sense, etc.). The discordant energies coming through from such human nature adverse activities only clutter the brain, distort the mind, steel, and worst of all – destroy soul essence.

It’s humanity’s ill-conceived total obedience to failing systems and the technology dependence that made large portions of global population desperately look on the outside for answers (which doesn’t work, as we can see with the world going completely crazy and insane – even putting a total mad man in the White House).

We have been purposely trained and guided to “unlearn” to look inside for the right and appropriate answers to our (often self-inflicted) miseries and how to correct our own issues with our own internal wisdom and how to develop and keep a moral compass as our true beacon. Modern society has even outcast tapping into the wisdom of elders.


“Smart Technology” has become the Holy Grail for many – not realizing that this path leads to disaster, dis-ease and ultimately demise of the Human Species as a whole…


Instead take a look at the 10 shamanic wisdom teachings to live by

1) The Earth is our Mother, care for her.

2) Honor your ancestors through your actions.

3) Open your heart and soul to the Great Spirit.

4) All life is sacred; treat all beings with respect.

5) Take from the Earth what is needed and nothing more.

6) Put the good of all before your own interests.

7) Give constant thanks for each new day.

8) Speak the truth; but only of good in others.

9) Follow the rhythms of nature; rise and retire with the sun.

10) Enjoy life’s journey, but leave no tracks.


Doesn’t such an outlook on life make a whole lot more sense than what we are currently doing in the West?


The roll out of more and more “Smart” technology separates us further from real nature, from each other and enslaves us! We don’t even realize how fast time is running out… or do we awaken now to finally accept SELF-RESPONSIBILITY and the freedom of real choice and the uncertainty that comes with it?


Where do we go from here?

Transhumanism – fully automated Artificial Intelligence Smart Grid running our lives autonomously without us being able to step out of it once we are hooked up?

Instead of connecting to nature many voluntarily hook up to the dark energy grid of synthetic digital “Virtual Reality” through abdication of natural senses and thus locking the doors to awareness and higher levels of consciousness. All the technology that is constantly pushed out has a hidden and dark agenda behind – about which – the corporate sponsored mass media never talks…

Is this the future we want for ourselves and our children being a machine AI controlled cyborg?


I certainly don’t fancy an Artificial Intelligence driven dependent and totally surveilled “lifestyle”, where all thinking is done in hive minds

and confined in and to the cloud. My choice is and will be to choose real nature over mechanic technology!



This is where humanity has arrived now! Time to STOP this!

Our only chance is to overcome false-self (ego) and step into hour hearts’ energy to unfold natural consciousness. Truth is not our enemy – it’s our teacher!
