Thriving Planet Goes to Australia, Part 1

By Elisa Novick

I left Bali just as I began to get more comfortable and known, but I was ready to leave. I traveled to Australia with little reassurance that I would be able to maintain the balance I’ve attempted to create on the Thriving Planet World Tour. Of all the plans discussed with a number of people in several cities, the only workshops actually scheduled were a weekend in Byron Bay with two people registered. That meant that I was coming to a very expensive country with little in the way of income to support the trip besides my private practice via Skype and without a strong sense of a whole-hearted welcome nor that what I was bringing would have much of a reception.

But I kept going, based solely on my inner guidance and a “let’s see what happens” attitude. I have found that I cannot afford to get too fearful; things always work out somehow. Since Australia is the 10th country I’ve held these workshops in, I’ve had enough experience to know that one way or another, if I keep going, interesting — if not amazing — things happen. I have used the phrase, “this is the adventure of a lifetime” to come into acceptance of a multitude of awful moments and awe-filled moments and to keep moving.

Today, having completed my weekend on Byron Bay, I find myself in amazement. Old and new friends have brought great gifts to me, and I’ve found welcome where least expected. The results of the work that has been done are nothing short of mind-blowing.

My first week in North Sydney, while walking to the conference I was attending, I was delighted to find large trees everywhere working at the level spiritually that means they are awakened and sentient enough to communicate with. After connecting just a few of them to my forest’s project to preserve life on earth, I was informed that all of the trees in every neighborhood I was traversing had “signed on.” I wept in joy and in gratitude that my tree partners in New York had accomplished what I had no time for here in Australia.

Then Ian White, who produces the Australian Bush Flower Essences, took me on a walk at Bangalley Head in Avalon, where I met many new and strange plants. There was an Old-Man Banksia, one of the weirdest trees I’ve seen, with bark like a terrible skin disease and flowers that look like something between hairy open clamshells and gaping mouths. Yet when I tuned in, it held a beautiful loving feminine energy, had fireworks shooting out of its crown like my beloved Maple tree, and was a powerful broadcaster. It wanted me to tell Ian about what I was seeing.

We then went to a preserve of large Angophora trees and I found a magnificent one to talk to:

When I tuned into you, I saw that you were a portal and heard the words, “visiting delegations,” beings who come and take back information. I’d like to introduce myself and talk with you.

You are a grateful being who has taken extraordinary chances to come here to this country, this space where we hold our consciousness into the physical essence in order to bring about a crisis situation that will awaken people. No one has had this perspicacity though many have been through here with their loving hearts wide open.

Can you explain what you mean about bringing about a crisis?

In this delicate atmosphere, there are not many who can breath the air and not faint from illnesses. Nor can anyone alive remember an oxygen-rich atmosphere that supported the resplendence of life in abundance.

This planet wants an overhaul, in which she gets to start again with new species, but we’ve intervened, as have many of the trees you’ve talked to and others, to say that this needs another chance. It has so much goodness still in it. So we allow a small crisis each day or period of time to awaken the people and other sentient creatures that it is time to change the prevailing attitude of greed and torture into one of a greater sense of loyalty to the One that made us.

Who are the visiting delegations?

They come for various reasons — to gauge the responsibilities needed to be taken to keep this planet alive, to bring home reports of another civilization and how it handles its problems, and to be the scribes of your history.

Why do you provide this?

We can’t do otherwise than is our nature, and in this natural field, communication is so vitally important that we provide this quite joyfully, an ambience and a slide or pathway that makes it easier to enter than some alternative entrances.

We are guardians of it as well, though there is nothing of an unserving nature that would be attracted to utilize the frequencies we have built.

Your presence is awakening some of the others here and they are leaning in to the attraction of the others in your presence.

You mean the trees that I’m close with?

Yes, and others who have tagged along, dolphins, and other sea creatures and nature spirits you’ve attuned with this day and with Ian.

Do you know him?

We have known him for centuries, before these particular “bodies.” [Edited for privacy.] We are grateful and hold him in high esteem.

Next week I will tell you about my time in Byron Bay and about meeting the most powerful tree I’ve ever met, and the Lightwork that took place.

  1. Thank you Lizzy. I don’t always feel brave. Though I ask questions of people and my inner guidance, for the most part, it feels like just putting one foot after another and the foot always has to go somewhere. Funny thing about that… Once upon a time, when asking, “If I jump, will you catch me?” I heard, “I’ve already caught you.”


  2. You are a brave and inspiring woman, dear Elisa. I have a very dear friend from Sydney, and I’m not surprised to read your words about the trees. So look forward to reading more about your experiences there.
