Growing guide:

Madeline Thompson MA LPC LCADC aka Groweesha

Madeline has a counseling degree and started all of her schooling when she was a stay at home mom… motivated by the love of children. While working for five years as a preschool teacher she became aware of the dynamics that shape a children’s belief about themselves. Her current work with families, couples and individuals and whatever blocks harmony is rooted in awareness of our patterns and the contracts we make with others to create the illusion of security. Madeline suggests the most anchored secure place we all have is living in union with our body and soul connected to the source of all that grows (mother earth).  Our beliefs can harshly interrupt that natural phenomenom.

Madeline believes that how we think of ourselves and treat ourselves creates the flow that grows us.  We are all responsible for growing ourselves as strong brave trees. Madeline’s goal is to aid our youth in acquiring the tools to be human while remembering the natural intelligence that connects us all

Tree Song

I saw a tree by the riverside one day as I walked along.
Straight as an arrow and pointing to the sky growing tall and strong.
“How do you grow so tall and strong?” I said to the riverside tree.
This is the song my tree friend sang to me:

Chorus:
I’ve got roots growing down to the water,
I’ve got leaves growing up to the sunshine,
and the fruit that I bear is a sign of the life in me.
I am shade from the hot summer sundown.
I am nest for the birds of the heavens.
I’m becoming what the Lord of trees has meant me to be:
A strong young tree.

I saw a tree in the wintertime, when snow lay on the ground.
Straight as an arrow and pointing to the sky winter winds blew all around.
“How do you stay so tall and strong?” I said to the wintertime tree.
This is the song my tree friend sang to me:

Chorus:
I’ve got roots growing down to the water,
I’ve got leaves growing up to the sunshine,
and the fruit that I bear is a sign of the life in me.
I am shade from the hot summer sundown.
I am nest for the birds of the heavens.
I’m becoming what the Lord of trees has meant me to be:
A strong young tree.

I saw a tree in the city streets, where buildings blocked the sun.
Green and lovely I could see it gave joy to everyone.
“How do you grow in the city streets?” I said to the downtown tree.
This is the song my tree friend sang to me:

Chorus:
I’ve got roots growing down to the water,
I’ve got leaves growing up to the sunshine,
and the fruit that I bear is a sign of the life in me.
I am shade from the hot summer sundown.
I am nest for the birds of the heavens.
I’m becoming what the Lord of trees has meant me to be:
A strong young tree.
