I do not yet know why plants come out of the land or float in streams, or creep on rocks or roll from the sea. I am entranced by the mystery of them, and absorbed by their variety and kinds. Everywhere they are visible yet everywhere occult.~Liberty Hyde Bailey
Become Familiar With Growing Things
It’s easy to connect with plants and start becoming aware of their properties.
Plants respond to our interaction. Studies have been done that show talking to plants help them grow better.
There’s obviously a path for communication between us and green leafy things…
So, what can we learn with our understanding of plants? That’s up to you and the plant! The more effort you put forth in opening yourself up to the communication, the more you’ll learn.
Plants live in a different reality than we do… everything is slow paced and deliberate for them.
Have you ever seen a petunia chase a squirrel across your front yard?
If you have, you’re probably experimenting with plants in a way that goes beyond the scope of this post!
It takes time to tune in to the slower frequency at which plants exist… Patience is called for with this exercise. At first, neither you or the plant may be able to recognize anything in common to communicate through.
You will though, if you stick with it.
Follow along with the exercise below to get in tune with the abundant life that surrounds us… Plants!
Choose a plant that you wish to communicate with. It can be a houseplant or one that lives outside in your yard. Be open to the idea that the plant may be selecting you too… Choose one you feel drawn to.
Study the plant with your senses. What color is it? What does it smell like? Is it soft of bristly? Spend some time building a mental picture of all the details of your chosen plant.
Close your eyes and sense the plant in your mind. Don’t edit what appears. Remember, sometimes the spirit of something looks nothing like the physical object.
Form a connection with the spirit of the plant. Is it telling you anything? Listen closely… It may take a while as plants can be ponderous.
If you feel comfortable, ask the plant a question. Listen carefully for an answer. You may be surprised at what advice you receive.
On the physical plane, plants are not as active as we are. It’s easy to think of them as lesser beings, but they aren’t. Their spirit bodies are just as powerful as ours, even if they’re different in some ways. Learn to respect the plants and new doors of understanding will open for you…
