Plants are still psychic! The Living Earth Series: Plants Have Feelings, Too
I came across this website a few months ago and though you guys would enjoy it.

Here is proof that no idea, no matter how stupid, will ever be too stupid for the credulous, and that no evidence to the contrary will ever convince twoo believers.

Here's what we're dealing with:


Ever since, I have had a lifelong love affair with plants. They are my friends; I commune silently with them. There is a certain pine tree in Memorial Park, here in Houston, that has a thing or two to say about dogs chasing squirrels. (The plants find domesticated animals chasing wild animals quite disruptive and unfair.) In my healing room at work I have a very talkative jade plant. Recently, just out of curiosity, I asked for confirmation that it is all right to toss "negative" energy onto plants, something I had heard years ago in a magnetic healing class. The jade plant and the giant pecan tree out back agree. They can transmute that energy. Just like they feed on the carbon-dioxide that we exhale and transmute it into oxygen, they can transmute our pain and fear and anger into peace and love and tranquility. Apparently there are scientists who think similarly regarding plant awareness.

Cleve Baxter, inventor of the polygraph machine, has a new book out called, "Primary Perception: Biocommunication with Plants, Living Foods and Human Cells." In it he furthers his earlier scientific investigations which prove that plants are sentient, in fact this is how the polygraph was actually invented, first by testing plant reactions. One early experiment involved a group of police officers. An officer was instructed to murder a schefflera plant with only another such plant as witness. The surviving plant was hooked up to a lie detector machine and a line of police officers walked by it one at a time. Its reaction to the officer who killed the other schefflera was dramatically different than to the other officers. Another example: once while alone in the lab in 1966 with the machine hooked to a plant Baxter thought, "I am going to burn that leaf," and when he visualized that, the machine went off the charts. The plant had read his mind.

Last year I learned something new about plants while taking an advanced class in BodyTalk System, (a system of energy medicine for humans, based in quantum physics, which uses muscle testing to communicate with the innate wisdom of the body.) Because they cannot move about, plants have had to develop other ways of interacting with their environment. Plants long ago became very psychic, and they can send energy tentacles out to interact: to love, heal or reach out in less gentle ways. Think about this the next time you decide to twist off that extra branch rather than clipping it cleanly. If you were having an amputation, which method would you prefer?

Here is an example of a plant interaction from my healing practice. A regular client came to me with a sudden, unexplained, pain in her neck and shoulder. While doing BodyTalk, using the advanced protocol, I came upon a vine type of plant which was angry with her. I asked her if she had done anything to a vine. She had indeed. It was summertime, and she had separated a potted mandevilla vine, at her beach house, from another plant just like it. She took one home to her house in Houston, to give it some rest in the shade, because it was not doing well. This plant had apparently sent out a tentacle and pinched her because it did not like being separated from the other mandevilla plant. I dissolved the tentacle. She went home and apologized to the plant for moving it, took it back to the beach, and placed both of them in the shade under the beach house. Within 24 hours, her neck and shoulder were back to normal. If this upsets some people, they might need to remember that an! imal pets can bite or scratch when they get upset, too. It is the same kind of behavior.



Seriously, how are people who have almost no critical thinking skills able to make ethical decisions?

If you believe everything you are told, everything you read, and everything you see on teevee, how are you able to decide what is truth and what is fiction?

After reading the dead kid's messages for years, it's apparent that his followers think he is divinely inspired and blindly do his bidding - he even tells them how to vote. Is this type of cult the exception or the norm?

1. " The plant had read his mind." There are no words...
How did I come to be doing Akashic Records readings? In a dream in the mid-1980's I was given the Akashic Records by an Ascended Master, and one day, when a client asked, I just realized I knew how to do them. (How convenient) To learn more about this dream, and about past life readings, go to the articles section of this website. I have written an article about this experience and it is located in that section.

In your reading, from three to six lifetimes will be discussed, depending upon what your guides want you to know at the time. These are usually "past" lives, but can also be "future" possible lives, although in actuality, they are all happening at the same time. This reading can be more easily done at a distance if you email me a photo of yourself.

Email me if you are interested in an Akashic Records Reading. The cost for the service is $250.00 (Nice work if you can fake it)

2. Got all the bases covered, eh?

A method utilized successfully for thousands of years by organized religion.

3. Considering the "telepathic plants" woo I've been reading in some other DU forums
Nothing surprises me any more. Sometimes I think that humans are doomed, but that's impossible because the stupid ones seem to reproduce like sewer mice.

4. The stupid ones are dooming the rest of us.
They're so busy clutching their crystals and waiting for the New Woo Rapture that reality is nothing but a distant memory.

Anybody remember the crystal clutcher from "Mars Attacks!" ? She was sitting on her car chanting when all hell broke loose during the ceremony.

I'm loaded and ready with 130 decibels of The Right Stuff.

Saw it in that excellent documentary, Mars Attacks.

13. That's right
Not even the mighty Tom Jones could kill them. If you're going to stuff a crooner into your survival kit, you need lethality. You need Slim.

15. charlie's right, we all love Tom but Slim was Teh Man.

5. I read The Secret Life of Plants long ago
when it was a bestseller. Oy, what a sensation that caused. Everyone cooing to plants, "sending" unspoken love zings through the day, playing music to them (they thrived on Beatles and Beethoven, but Black Sabbath was, of course, deadly).

It was another opportunity for the credulous to rant: "See? See?! Things ARE more fantastic than you'll allow in your pinched little world."

Then it faded, forgotten. Which always happens. They come in with a bang, but debunking elicits a "meh." The Most Astounding Thing Ever is shown to be hype or hoax, and nobody gets mad. Nobody gets mad.

It doesn't seem to lessen enthusiasm when the next Castaneda or Strieber pops up to dazzle them again, either.

8. Isn't that the biggest head-scratcher?
The Most Astounding Thing Ever is shown to be hype or hoax, and nobody gets mad.

They fall for every hoax or scam under the sun, and never get upset at the hoaxer. But mention "big pharma" or "big ag" or - if you're really cruel, BIG YAK - and watch the flames. I don't get it.

10. like creationists
they harp on 19th century fakes like they're the linchpin of modern evolutionary theory. Someone fakes some creationist evidence? Well, they were doing it for the Lord...

11. I don't get it either
Play them for suckers, just don't ever call them suckers out loud and you're golden. Or something. And the skeptic who exposes the flimflam is nonetheless still "irrationally invested in his/her worldview." Or something.

Just like other religious cults, the followers in the WooWoo Kingdom won't ever admit they were stupid enough to fall for it.

9. Mythbusters did an episode on this
Primary perception: All living things are interconnected by ESP and have emotions: busted
The primary perception myth was the kooky myth of the episode and it started off on a weird note: they actually got a polygraph to react to Tory's thoughts of harming a plant. As they improved their experimental setup, though, these weird results disappeared.

http://kwc.org/mythbusters/2006/09/episode_61_deadly_st...
I have some issues with mythbusters but they do occasionally do a good job disproving woo beliefs.

18. The whole idea of one plant "witnessing" the "murder" of another makes me giggle uncontrollably.
I'm a tree lover and have quite the green thumb, but bullshit is bullshit.

Detective, The Ficus Strangler struck again last night and is still on the loose, I need you to bring this witness in for questioning. After that, we'll do a line up of the usual suspects...

19. Round up the Kudzu Boys
and give them the Weed-B-Gone until one of them talks.

No, wait. Just polygraph them. Cripes, why didn't I think of that before?

:rofl:

Speaking of murder...

Have you ever met a vegetarian who quit plants for milk and honey because vegetables, y'know, scream when you fork them?

Or heard of a Plant Liberation org that did whatever it takes to end the Silent Holocaust?

Me neither.

I do wonder if it's not a scam being perpetrated by skeptics who just want to see how far they can push it.

23. If it was
we should do more like it. "Guru Suchabanana Caught Eating A Sammitch!" is a much more pleasant and amusing scandal than the ugly shit theistic moralizers usually get themselves into.
