“Have you ever walked in a forest and felt that there is something magical and alive about the trees and plants? Have you ever felt a connection with them? Here’s the answer. They are conscious beings energetically sensitive environment just like you are. They really can pick up on your thoughts and the energy they create.
Dr. Cleve Backster, former CIA operative, was one of the early developers of the polygraph machine (lie detector test that picks up electrical activity on the skin). While in his lab, Dr. Backster got the idea to hook up a plant leaf to the polygraph machine and try to get a reaction out of it. He tried tapping the leaf with a pen and dipping a leaf in his coffee, and there was no reaction on the polygraph chart. Then he had the thought “I’ll go to my desk and burn the leaf with some matches”, and as soon as this thought entered into his mind, the plant had an energetic response: the lines on the graph excelled to the top of the chart similar to electrical activity a person gives off during feelings of anxiety. The plant “screamed” from his thoughts alone, but only when it knew his thoughts were genuine making the plant feel threatened.
This effect was repeated in his lab, in front of live audiences, and even on the television show “Myth Busters”. Backster also got similar polygraph results from shrimp, eggs, and even human DNA. If you are interested in this, there is a book called “The Secret Life of Plants” which also has many other scientists accounts of the physical, emotional, and spiritual connections between plants and man.
The creation is alive and conscious. It is energetically sensitive to its environment just as we are. We share the consciousness field with all of creation, and our thoughts produce energetic currents that propagate through space that all life is aware of on a scientifically measurable level. You and your thoughts are one with it in the most direct way. So to all the tree huggers out there who claim that the trees understand them and communicate with them, there may be more validity to that they we think;)”
