When you see The Resting Tree, it means by taking time out to focus and centre, you can stop patterns of negativity. Running around and overdoing things only makes you into a human doing, not a human being. Many of you are so busy you see rest as a weakness, a waste of precious time, but rest is in fact, a biological need. All the science shows we need rest to live, just like we need food.
“People who meditate are able physically to expand parts of their brains, growing bigger, fatter frontal lobes. Praying has similar benefits. U.S. research has shown that people who regularly attend religious services live longer than those who do not. Although some of this benefit must lie in the social connection, scans show the brain responds in a similar way to prayer as it does to meditation.” 
Life can be difficult at times. In order to stay ahead, we often sacrifice our health to keep the ball rolling. We multitask, work long hours, bring our stress home and don’t give ourselves enough time to relax. Our immune systems become suppressed, we get depressed, and before we know it, we’re fighting off one illness after another. Time for a rest.
Message from the book:
The Resting Tree is a sign for you to stop focusing and planning and be at peace in the moment. This is the representative of nonaction and relaxation. Patience is the key to being with this Ally.
The Resting Tree asks you to slow down, sit back, and watch the roses bloom and the birds feed in the meadow. This isn’t the time to forge ahead in any way. You may not be taking enough breaks, so you’re invited to be still and contemplate your good fortune, even if it means blessing the chaos in your life.
This is a sign to allow everything to fall away except the stillness of the moment; it’s like living within the space between breaths. When the Resting Tree appears, it signals that you’ve done all you can for now and it’s time to unwind and allow your story to unfold of its own accord. You’ve earned the right to rest and relax.
Amazing ideas will come if you do. Remember the ancient saying, ‘we do without doing and everything gets done.’
The Resting Tree appearing as a Challenger asks you to consider if you’re so frenetic that all you can think about is how stressed you are. This is a sign to be careful or you may become physically ill, or at the very least, unable to enjoy your life.
Be still. It’s time to meditate and take time out or you’ll make some mistakes that you may regret later. Don’t worry; all those things you’re trying to manage will still be there when you’re ready to move forward again. Only then will you have a clearer head with which to think. ~ Colette Baron-Reid
We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much. We don’t allow our bodies to heal, and we don’t allow our minds and hearts to heal. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
