Trees are ancient beings. They are keepers of the life force. They receive nourishment from Mother Earth and Father Sun. To gain power from a tree and to receive the same magical energy which they possess, remove three hairs from your head and tie them together with ordinary garden twine. Go to a wooded area where you won't be disturbed. Walk around until you find a tree you're attracted to. It should represent the powers you're looking for: a pine tree for longevity, or an oak tree for strength, etc. Tie your bundle of hair to a longer piece of twine. Wrap the twine about the tree trunk and tie as you say, "With hair and twine, my strength is yours, and your strength is mine." You and your sacred tree are now bound, from toe to crown.
