Spending time and connecting with nature helps us experience a peaceful, relaxed and happy state of mind, which makes it easy for us to pray, meditate, visualize positive thoughts and connect to the Inner God.

An advocate of “living in the moment,” Barbara Anne Syassen tells a story of a young girl’s special relationship with a special tree in her book The Tree That Talks.

Detailing how young Annabella’s sad feelings went away after spending time with nature, The Tree That Talks conveys the message of importance of meditation and positive thinking in our daily lives.

“Spending time and connecting with nature helps us experience a peaceful, relaxed and happy state of mind, which makes it easy for us to pray, meditate, visualize positive thoughts and connect to the Inner God,” Syassen says.

Endowed with The Gold Award for Literary Excellence in 2013, The Tree That Talks also contains biblical phrases and a short guide to meditation for carers, parents and teachers of children.

“A lot of children naturally live in the moment, but don’t truly understand how to use it effectively,” Syassen says. “I encourage parents to guide and inspire their children to learn more about how living in the moment can have a positive effect on their lives, and to continuously encourage them to apply this wonderful art.”
