In 2006 I was visiting a friend in Southern California and she informed me of an amazing tree that was in her neighborhood. I took a stroll and found this enormous ancient Carob Tree. As I walked up to it, I could feel so much energy. The elementals in the tree were excited to be appreciated and revealed themselves in my photographs.
The tree spirits in the tree told me telepathically that the carob tree is 130 years old. I could tell by its form of gnarly twists and many faces that it held a lot of wisdom and enchantment. It grew so big the resident had to route its water drain pipe through the base of the tree.

Above photo: Here is a different perspective of the ancient Carob Tree. There are many faces revealed in its trunk. Can you see the face next to the white arrow in the tree?

For fun I copied the faces from the tree and inserted them in the stacked boxes on the right. Can you find them in the tree? I cleaned the background on the bottom and took out the drain pipe so you could find them more easily. This particular photograph revealed faces, profile/chin with lips, and a hand in its bark. The older aged trees can reveal more of its surrounding history. Nature takes on the shape of the consciousness around it. Anthropomorphism describes this concept: "Anthropomorphism is the attribution of human-like characteristics to non-human entities."
Have you ever eaten carob? It is delicious and taste similar to chocolate. I love carob and the seed pods from carob trees are ground to make carob. The seed pod photograph also reveals elemental faces! This tree is very enchanted!
I hope you have become enchanted! It is time to go out in nature and allow the elementals to show themselves to you!
