5DMediaNetwork ~ Telepathy and Plant Communication

I love it when the religion of Science finally begins to catch up with Intuitive Awareness and Ancient Wisdom. Quick question: if plants can do it, and fungi can do it, is it really so difficult to believe that humans and animals do, too? Is it really so impossible to believe that Nature Spirits communicate with humans?

Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ~ Lewis Carroll from Alice in Wonderland

Thanks, Lucas!

Could telepathy be explained by how plants communicate? | June 26, 2013 by Silvia Casabianca

Do plants communicate by using telepathy?

This interesting question was raised by recent research published in the Australian journal “BMC Ecology” suggesting that plants seem to react to slight noises — generated inside the cell — to talk with each other. And what does this mean for humans?

Those who believe in parapsychological phenomena, like telepathy between humans, haven’t been able to provide utter proof that the unconscious or conscious sending and receiving of mental and emotional signals called telepathy is actually possible — but even if it is, we don’t have a hint of what mechanisms would explain it.

Senior Scientist at The Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dean Radin, has suggested that quantum mechanics will provide an explanation of how telepathy works. Maybe delving deeper into the way other organisms communicate will also help us sort out the mystery of telepathy among humans.

Plants communicate through sound waves

A recent study found evidence to support the idea of plant communicate through sound waves. (Photo Shutterstock)[/caption]After observing how plants affect each other’s growth, Monica Gagliano and Michael Renton from the University of Western Australia proposed that plants communicate through sound waves (inaudible for humans) or nanomechanical oscillations, which are precisely within the realm of quantum mechanics.

Nanomechanical oscillations are vibrations on the tiniest atomic or molecular scale.

The researchers noticed that chili seeds (Capsicum annuum) grew better in a locked container in the presence of basil (Ocimum basilicum) but were hindered by the presence of fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), suggesting that the growing environment had less effect on the development of the seeds than the way plants interacted with one another.

Gagliano and Renton said that “seed germination was positively enhanced by the presence of a ‘good’ neighbor, even when the known signaling modalities were blocked, indicating that light, touch or chemical signals may not be indispensible for different plant species to sense each other’s presence.”

Gagliano had already published findings last year of corn roots producing clicking sounds in the 220-Hertz range. The article appeared in “Trends in Plant Science.” She also found that, when suspended in water, corn roots tended to lean towards vibrations of the same frequency range.

Are we all interconnected?

Quantum mechanics teaches us that Earth is a sea of vibrations. Humans and animals respond to different frequencies. Even bacteria can signal one another with vibrations.

In 2011, researchers Allan Widom and colleagues from Northeastern University in Boston published findings showing that single-celled bacteria like E-Coli might communicate with each other by using radio waves. They calculated that the transition frequencies between these energy levels correspond to radio signals broadcast at 0.5, 1 and 1.5 kilohertz, same frequencies as those used in AM and FM radio transmissions.

Researchers have also discovered that bacteria can communicate by using a chemical language called “quorum sensing,” which allows them to act as a synchronized group.

The idea that plants communicate is not totally novel. In 1973, explorer Lyall Watson published “Supernature: A Natural History of the Supernatural,” where he suggested that, plants responded sympathetically when a live shrimp was thrown into boiling water.

People have been talking to plants for ages. Native Americans’ herbal medicine, for example, is based on some form of communication with plants. Bach flower remedies are also based on the capacity of a healer to communicate with the flowers and ask them to render their healing properties.

Discovery Channel’s MythBusters Tory Belleci, Kari Byron and Scottie Chapmen studied the effect of either praise or cruel insults on separate greenhouses while using another greenhouse as experimental control for two months. To their own surprise, the silent greenhouse produced lower biomass and smaller pea pods than the other two. Kind words or insults didn’t seem to make a difference, which seems to prove that it is sound the plants respond to.

Communication among plants mediated by light, chemicals

Plants can also react to light, and some use allelopathy to communicate with each other.

First used in 1937 by Austrian professor Hans Molisch, the term allelopathy describes a biological mechanism by which one organism produces chemical substances that influence the growth, survival and reproduction of another organism. Chemicals released into the soil or air by roots or leaves may alert other trees that it’s been eaten so that the others can speed up their production of chemical defenses. Allelopathy is found not only among plants, but also among bacteria and fungi.

Bielefeld University Professor Dr. Olaf Kruse and his team published, last year, in “Nature Communications” that green algae can draw energy from photosynthesis and from other plants.

If this type of communication through light, chemicals or sound waves cannot be called telepathy, then maybe it will still ignite the imagination of those who believe that we’re all connected in pretty much the same fashion as the planetary brain depicted in the “Avatar” movie. In Pandora, the conquered moon, there is a vast neural network through which the humanoids Na’vi and other beings can connect. You might remember seeing the image of interconnected plant roots rapidly exchanging information.

In planet Earth, as we now know, entire forests are indeed interconnected by networks of underground fungi (Mycorrhizae). Would it sound too off to imagine that plants might be using acoustic signals to transmit information through this web?

Psychologist and energy healer Dr. Olivia Bader-Lee thinks that the result of these experiments with plants will also confirm that humans can share some form of energy.

“The human organism is very much like a plant,” she said. “It draws needed energy to feed emotional states, and this can essentially energize cells or cause increases in cortisol and catabolize cells depending on the emotional trigger.”

Tiny, Beautiful and Powerful: More Hummingbirds!

Since I wrote the Mighty Hummingbirds post, I have received so many emails, texts, stories, photos and videos. Those little guys are up to some serious magic! I thought I’d share some of my recent hummingbird favorites.

From Ingrid:

Hummingbird at Ingrid’s parents’ cabin in B.C.

From my friend Wendy:

“hi there,

“so cool. did i write you to tell you that a hummingbird came INSIDE OUR
HOUSE? it flew to where the kids and i were in the living room and tried
to get out. it would fly and then take a rest as we tried to free it. i
had never seen one so close, it was beautifully magnificent! the kids and
i came up with all sorts of ideas of ways to help her be free again (e.g.
picking a flower to have her follow it (sol’s idea), using a feather to
guide her (thea’s), playing their birds (soft lovey toys that make bird
sounds to have it feel at home). ultimately, i was able to carefully put
her into a deep bowl and gently cover it to get to the front door. we
could see her in the bowl when we had her outside since i think she was
startled and it was too deep for her to flutter out of. when we tilted it
she flew away with a chirpy sound (never knew they made a sound)!

“thought you would appreciate the full story since i think i mentioned it in
passing 🙂 .

xoxo love,

Another email from my friend, Toni:

“Just saw four hummingbirds while I was walking – here and there.

“And yesterday saw one on a utility line who zoomed away. And took this pic of one of the young hawks nearby sunning himself

“A squirrel in the middle of the tree.

“And would send you the postcard but I don’t have your snail mail address!”

Then, this morning, I stumbled upon this adorable video of a rescued baby hummingbird:

Watching that video put me a bit behind in getting ready to go to an appointment, so I needed to decide what to wear quite fast. I went up to my closet, and I swear this shirt that I had lying over the closet rod started talking to me in a little, tiny voice: “Pick me! Pick me!” I started to object in my mind that the shirt didn’t match anything I had clean, but I kept hearing, “Pick me! Pick me!” I realized if I wore it with a particular necklace I own and a black skirt, it would work. As I grabbed it from the closet, I noticed for the very first time that this shirt has … a hummingbird on it! So that’s who was chirping at me. 😉

The hummingbird T

As I sat down to type this post, I realized that the chirping hummingbird T-shirt reminded me of someone. Hmmm…All of a sudden it hit me that my novel, Schizandra and the Gates of Mu features a hummingbird character named Sephora. I had completely forgotten about her. Oops! Since Sephora and her kind seem particularly active these days, I looked up additional hummingbird wisdom. I’ll leave you to enjoy the support they’re offering us right now. The following excerpt comes from a longer article called Teachings of the Hummingbird, which you can read by clicking here.

“The Hummingbird darts from flower to flower, gathering the sweet nectars of life with every flutter. We delight at the freedom & beauty of this little creature, never questioning its right to live in such pleasure.

“Why is it that this little two-ounce bundle of feathers evokes such joy in the hearts of so many? …

“Hummingbird teachings exemplify following your bliss, and by doing so you are nourished both physically and spiritually. Our culture, unfortunately, does not encourage this. Deeply rooted in the unconscious of most is the belief that too much pleasure is bad. We see this in our work ethics, our comfort with our own bodies and sensuality, and certainly, in an educational system that encourages conformity, not listening to the inner guidance of ones heart.

“Brian Swimme, cosmologist and scientist, writes in his book ´The Universe is a Green Dragon´, that ‘By pursuing your allurements (bliss), you help bind the universe together. The unity of the world rests on the pursuit of passion.’ He goes on to explain that this power of being drawn, through attraction, to what you desire is a primal dynamism´of the universe. Without this the galaxies would break apart. Individual stars would disperse, atoms would no longer attract each other, the sun, earth and moon would drift into intergalactic space. Call it gravity if you like, the principle is the same. The universe exists on the basis of attraction. Another word for this is Love. This is the word that points to the alluring activity of the cosmos.

“Us humans are as much a part of this galactic dance as the stars; governed by the same laws that govern all of creation. I believe that the hummingbird reminds us of this. That following your bliss is a universal imperative, and it is through this, that you indeed fulfill your part in the design of things.”

Mighty Hummingbirds

Others and I have been experiencing so many hummingbird synchronicities of late that I felt called to give them their own post! I’ve noticed the hummingbird presence building for awhile, interlaced with amazing connections and weaving, past and present. Without going into too many personal details, Tania Marie and I have a friend who has floated in and out of our lives at various times. She used to live near me, and she and Tania had their paths cross somewhere else after being virtually introduced by me.

Very long story short, a few weeks ago, I realized I had forgotten to reply to an email from our mutual friend. Somehow that email disappeared, but while searching for it, my iPhone kicked out an email from June 2010 as the most recent correspondence. Um, not so, but whatever, iPhone! The strangeness caught my attention, so I read the email it brought forth. In that email, I just happened to be describing a bizarre series of synchronicities involving “this guy,” who turned out to be none other than David! It was clear from the email that I had zero idea that he and I would one day wind up living together and eventually become “a thing.” I had only mentioned the truly odd and intricate synchronicities in passing as an explanation for an entirely different connection and event my friend had asked me about.

My crazy iPhone did not indicate I had ever answered one of my friend’s questions back in 2010. In case I really hadn’t answered her 2010 question, I sent off an updated June 2012 reply with the requested answer. She emailed me a day later saying what perfect timing and that “you have no idea what an amazing answer this is for me.” She felt she wasn’t ready for the answer back in 2010, had discovered it herself since then, and my email came through as a strong confirmation from the Universe. Part of that email conversation involved questions about Runes for a tattoo, which Tania began to design.

It’s a hummingbird, with the Wunjo Rune, also known as the “Happily Ever After Rune” or the Rune of fulfillment and joy. By the time Tania posted the design, this was actually my second hummingbird of the week. After last Sunday’s Raph Channeling event, a group of us spent some time on the shore of Pretty Lake, WI, marveling at giant dragonflies and talking about elves and faeries. All of a sudden, one of the biggest and most distinctive hummingbirds any of us had ever seen grabbed our attention. I didn’t even make the connection between the tattoo and the magical hummingbird until a swarm of hummingbird happenings unfolded in a very short time.

Last night, I commented to my friend Gillian on her post about the “Dark Knight” False Flag event:

“Blessings to you! Thanks for shining a light on the cockroaches. If we keep shining, they will leave. … Wow, just saw a hummingbird as I typed that!

“Hummingbirds’s Wisdom Includes:

Ability to heal by using light as a laser from mouth
Endurance over long journeys
Ability to fly into small places to heal


Gillian replied:

“:) I totally LOVE hummingbirds. Thanks for sharing. ~G”

Then, another commenter, Raven, added:

“I totally love hummingbirds too. I’m looking at a whole flock of them outside my window as I write this… just wow. They are our tiniest angels, miracles with wings.”

“What’s up with the hummingbirds?” I thought. The hummingbird wisdom from Animal Spirits resonated, but I guess there was more to ponder. This morning, an email arrived from my Sedona friend, Toni:

“The last three mornings – a hummingbird has been outside the bedroom sliding glass door off the balcony. And if I’m downstairs he (or she) is fluttering off the deck! 😉

Hummingbird – Tireless Joy and the Nectar of Life – Animal Speak – Ted Andrews 😉 ”

Later, I got a text from my friend, Ingrid, that she “saw the most adorable hummingbird mug last week on the square.”

Tania’s been having hummingbird synchronicities, too. So … what is up with the hummingbirds?

According to Native American Mythology:

“Hummingbirds are found only in the western hemisphere, so they are absent from the traditional fairy tales, legends, and myths of European and African Americans. There is, however, a rich supply of stories about these tiny birds in Native American mythology.

“A Mayan legend says the hummingbird is actually the sun in disguise, and he is trying to court a beautiful woman, who is the moon.

“Another Mayan legend says the first two hummingbirds were created from the small feather scraps left over from the construction of other birds. The god who made the hummers was so pleased he had an elaborate wedding ceremony for them. First butterflies marked out a room, then flower petals fell on the ground to make a carpet; spiders spun webs to make a bridal pathway, then the sun sent down rays which caused the tiny groom to glow with dazzling reds and greens. The wedding guests noticed that whenever he turned away from the sun, he became drab again like the original gray feathers from which he was made.

“A third Mayan legend speaks of a hummingbird piercing the tongue of ancient kings. When the blood was poured on sacred scrolls and burned, divine ancestors appeared in the smoke.”

In the Incan Medicine Wheel, we see four animals, one for each direction. According to Shaman, Healer and Sage, Alberto Villoldo, “Serpent represents the binding principle; jaguar is the renewing force; hummingbird represents the epic journey of evolution and growth; and eagle or condor stands for the self-transcending principle. Heaven is the creative force; Earth is the receptive force. When you summon them, you align yourself with the forces that animate all life.”

Coming full circle with the hummingbird synchronicities, I just noticed that Tania finished painting her version of the Incan Medicine Wheel the same week I sent that 2010 email to our hummingbird tattoo friend.

A Walk Between Worlds by Tania Marie

Whatever these little powerhouses mean, they are making their presence known. With potent healing and the ability to shine joy and light into hard to reach places, hummingbirds bring magic and delight wherever they go. They remind us that, indeed, “there are no small miracles.” Blessed Be.

Bimini Retreat 2012 – Reiki, Raw Food and Dolphins

My extremely gifted and dearest friend, Tania Marie, is hosting a magical, Atlantean getaway this August in beautiful Bimini!

Tania Marie

I remember when Tania attended a retreat in Bimini in 2009, and even then she felt called to lead one of her own excursions in this special place. Well, she’s doing it! I personally trained Tania as a Reiki Master Teacher, and some of my clients have trained with her in California and Reno. I can vouch that the Reiki 1 and 2 training and certification on this journey will be top notch. In addition, you’ll get to swim with dolphins, enjoy healing, cleansing and vibration raising gourmet raw foods, practice yoga, and soak in the energies of Atlantis. You can read more from Tania below:

I’ve been hinting at this very special journey that I will be offering this summer and now I am filled with gratitude to be able to share the details (which will be up on shortly). Having a deep connection to the energy in Bimini, the dolphins and Atlantis, as well as with Jenny, I can’t begin to express the level of love in my heart that overflows in being able to offer this service that is my calling. I look forward to meeting the group that will be joining us. In Love, Tania

Gaia and the May 20, 2012 Eclipse

After writing about the Divine Feminine, Dark Goddess and today’s Annular Eclipse, I spent today alternately offering sessions and attempting to finish reading Christine R. Page’s book, “2012 and the Galactic Center: The Return of the Great Mother.” I had bought this book several years ago as part of my research for Schizandra and the Peruvian Jaguar, but I’d never started reading it until Dark Goddess/Mother synchronicities started multiplying exponentially around me.

Today’s readings and my reading about the Great Mother and the Galactic Center continued layers of other spiraling themes in my life, including Hermes Trismegistus and “The Emerald Tablet,” a text which has stalked me since 1994. Here it comes again: different book, similarly extensive references to the ancient alchemical work. A strange day it was, indeed, with the eclipse energies, some time warps presenting themselves as scheduling snafus, and a photon belt from the Pleiades. I’d read a few paragraphs only to nod off, then ask myself, “What did I just read?!” then reread the paragraphs only to fall asleep again. I wasn’t actually tired, but the combined energy of the Galactic Center topic and Earth’s actual movement through some pretty intense Galactic waves kept knocking me out.

Our air conditioner malfunctioned, too, so that our house became an imperceptibly heated steam room, which may have contributed to the reading drowsiness. When we finally recognized an issue, David went outside to check on the AC just as our landlord synchronously happened to be taking an evening walk with his wife. While he and David checked on various potential cooling issues, I learned from his wife that she’s 12 weeks pregnant. Mother Goddess energy again.

By the time we finished with all that, I had completely forgotten about the Eclipse and just wanted to eat dinner. Thai Kelp noodles and veggies eaten, I felt a strong urge to open the huge box I’d received on Friday from my dear friend, Tania Marie. My birthday’s on Tuesday, but all of a sudden, I couldn’t wait. David cut open the box for me, and I carefully dug out enough packing peanuts to retrieve my gift: the original Tania Marie painting of “Gaia.”

Gaia by Tania Marie

I love all of Tania’s paintings, but I’ve always had a special spot in my heart for this one. I didn’t even know she still had the original, since she painted it before we ever met. I got so excited because I’ve long wanted to hang something above our earthy green loveseat, but nothing quite looked right. This piece just pops, connecting with color and theme to the nearby portal doorway number 1 with its green background, orange sun and Green Man/Earth.

Only after recognizing that this was not a giclee print, did I also realize that I had been unveiling the original Gaia at the precise moment of the Annular Eclipse. Gaia arrived with a print of Tania’s portrait of her beloved Nestor, a truly cosmic rabbit who transitioned in 2008. I had the honor of getting to know “Nestie” through animal communication sessions, and she continues to work her expansive energy from beyond the veil. Her appearance with Gaia at the moment of this powerful eclipse felt like a seriously synchronized activation of earthly and cosmic energies, right in our living room, without any conscious intention on my part. Overwhelming gratitude to Tania for this tremendous gift, for her talent, love, and participation in this beautiful dance of life.
