Nature as a Form of Developmental Awareness

When I come out of meditation every morning, I pull a series of three oracle cards as a way to augment whatever messages might have come through the meditative session. Typically, these cards will say exactly – verbatim – bits of information that I had received, providing another level of validation for the communication that had taken place. On some occasions, I will end up either pulling the same card or the same message will be delivered by both my guides and the cards multiple days in a row. Obviously, this is a big hint to “pay attention and do what we are telling you.” For months, I kept pulling the “nature” card, and had been told by my guides (as well as other people) you need to spend more time outside with the trees and plants. So a few weeks ago, I started doing just that.

When I made the effort and deliberately stepped out into my forested back yard, I announced I was doing it in accord with what “they” and the cards had been telling me to do, and that I was very curious as to what was going to come out of it. Immediately, I was being asked to notice how much higher the vibration of energy the plants and trees were exuding and how it saturated the air, versus how the inside of the house felt. They said, “This is nature, and because it does not have the same mental blocks that constrict its passage of life through reality as humans do, they can be considered a higher vibrational energy and aid in your development to raise your own vibration, which you do when you communicate with the Other Side.” As we’ve all heard before, in mediumship, the medium has to raise their vibrational energy, the spirits need to slow theirs, and the two meet in the middle for information transfer.

So being the overly curious guy that I am, I figured if I had to connect better with nature, I had better do more than just simply soak in the feeling of the air. So I started touching the plants. I would hold the leaves of the shrubs, touch the wood of the tree bark, and really try to be aware of what I was feeling. When I touched the foliage, I really thought about how I was touching the hand of another living being and not some inanimate object. In bringing the notion of the plant kingdom to the status of sentience in my consciousness, I quickly noticed how different plant species gave off different “personalities.” Some felt giddy, others content, others more “weighty” in acknowledging issues with the soil or surrounding vegetation. It was a wonderful experience, standing there holding the “hand” of another species and feeling the energy of personality – and occasionally some messages. (Naturally, you can’t help but think to yourself, “If people saw me standing here ‘talking to plants,’ they would put me in the nuthouse.”)

At one point, I decided to experiment other than my back yard and went to a secluded location elsewhere in town. There was a small patch of older trees of different varieties at the spot. I touched one and it showed me “having twins.” I was like, “Having twins, what do you mean?” It gave me the feeling of “look up.” So I looked up, and sure enough, two of its upper branches were incredibly thick, like trunks themselves, and they paralleled each other in their reach for the sun. They were identical in size, shape, and orientation.

Then I decided to touch the next tree, which was about 8 to 10 feet away. When I soaked up its energy, I was astonished to feel that it was complaining about the tree I had just talked to. I thought this was remarkably strange – first, because I had never considered trees or shrubs to dislike one another, and second, there was another tree that was less than a foot away, yet he wasn’t complaining about that one. So in my own way – and this sounds completely nutty – I asked, “Why are you upset at this other tree that’s way over there?” The response was, “Its roots are crowding mine.” Logically, I thought, if he was complaining about that, certainly he must be completely furious at the other tree right beside him. When I mentioned that, he said “No, this one respects my space. Look up – you will see he has no branches on the side that is facing me.” I was blown away. When I looked over, sure enough, the side of the other tree was bare until the very top, confirming what the tree had said.

Then, just for fun, I touched a holly plant. The energy of that bush was so vastly different from the trees. It was like it was having a party about itself! Very frenetic.

A few days later, I took the opportunity to visit a park in North Everett. As I was walking along a path, I came across a wonderful patch of rose hips. I figured, “This has got to have some interesting energy.” So I touched one of its leaves and allowed its presence to soak into me. Immediately, it started saying “There are three of me.” I looked rather strangely at it, as I couldn’t see anything more than the patch I was standing at. But it was insistent. Instead of arguing, I let go and continued on my walk. Sure enough, less than 20 feet away, there was a break in the path, followed by two more big patches of rose hips.

So now when I go walking outside, I make a point of touching as many plants and trees as possible. Given enough time (and privacy so it doesn’t look so goofy), I’ve discovered that not only do we have the ability to sense each different personality a species radiates, the plants can also impress us with what they are thinking and “speak” to us in their own ways. In a couple of cases, some of the shrubs have told me about their history and how they felt about what happened to them, which I have been able to confirm – at least in terms of the events they described.

There were also a couple instances that when I tried to pull away, the branch I had been gently grasping moved to keep connection with my hand. That was wild!

Being outside and communing with nature has definitely opened me up to greater possibilities. It has certainly expanded my sense of awareness. And this is what my guides said it would do.

What time is it? I think it’s time to go outside and play!

A Multidimensional Being with an Interdimensional Tool Box

Earlier this week I got thinking about the notion of being a multidimensional being. By “multidimensional” I mean that we exist beyond the three dimensional realm, traversing Time and Space in ways we usually don’t subscribe to. At first, the idea of multidimensionality seems like just a flight of fancy or science fiction, but when we begin to factor in all the evidence of consciousness transcending this “everyday” world, we must accept that we – on some level – do go beyond our body and its five senses.

When remote viewer Pat Price described the Palo Alto city pool during a remote viewing trial, not only did he correctly describe the location of the pool and adjacent structures, he went on to describe what he thought were two other storage tanks on the property. He also mentioned that the site might be a water purification plant. He even added rotating machinery. When the target team returned, they confirmed the pools and several other items, but not the towers or machinery. This, they thought, were simply errors on Price’s part. 22 years later, Russell Targ, co-founder of SRI doing the remote viewing trials, received a different answer. On March 16, 1995, he received the Annual report of the City of Palo Alto, celebrating its centennial year. The report read “In 1913 a new municipal waterworks was built on the site of the present Rinconada Park.” The accompanying photograph showed the two water tanks exactly where Price had drawn them! This showed that Pat was able to remote view a location as it had existed in the past!

In going the other direction, how many people have been able to forecast future events from their dreams? After the tragedy of 9/11, the Rhine Research Institute – a parapsychological foundation - was flooded with phone calls of people declaring they had prophetic dreams of the attack several days to weeks before it actually occurred. They described events such as seeing planes flying into buildings, the pentagon being bombarded, and people running through the streets in panic. The data from the Global Consciousness Project from that fateful day showed that Random Number Generators were affected by the disaster four hours before the first plane hit the first tower, essentially predicting what was to come later that morning.

What these types of findings reveal is that we as beings are really energetic fields that are able to interact and access the dimension of Time. In the past, you’ve heard me talk about the simultaneous nature of Time, but I think it’s important to stop and consider that access to this “environment” is available to each and every one of us and that it is not necessarily a straight arrow shooting in one direction. Because we can “dip into” the past or the future, see it, and in some cases interact with it (as some scientific experiments have shown), this reveals that we have been born with a magical talent – another mode of interacting with reality – much like our standard five senses. But unlike the tools of our basic five (sight, sound, touch, smell, taste), this ability is interdimensional. That is, our five basic senses are designed to interact with this realm and dimension; yet we have been equipped with other tools – other “senses” (if you wish to call them that) which not only works in this dimension, but gives us access to a wider range of information processing.

Okay. Enough about Time, but what about Space?

Experiments in remote healing have been going on for decades. The results from these are quite exciting, revealing that patients who have been a part of focused long-distance healing prayers/thoughts/meditations do benefit from the experience in comparison to their control group counterparts. Additionally, people in crisis situations have been able to mentally reach out to close family members through empathetic telepathy – where a relative thousands of miles away can feel and know that Uncle Joey is in trouble, to a remarkable degree of accuracy (“I knew he was in a car accident”). In some cases, people actually saw a physical phantasm of their relative, even though he or she may have been a thousand miles away. Moreover, we’ve heard stories about the psychic bonds between twins for years, and some excellent articles and other documentation has been written to support it. My favorite are the twins who were separated at birth, yet they ended up marrying women with the same first names, getting the same type of dog, naming the dog the same name, and having the same type of injuries in their youth, and then met each other for the first time. In a more alarming series of experiments, Russian parapsychologist L.L. Vasiliev had demonstrated as early as the 1930s the ability to mentally put patients into a hypnotic sleep from a distance of over a thousand miles!

What these examples reveal is our ability to also transcend Space. Again, like our ability to be interdimensional with Time, we can also be interdimensional with Space. We don’t know how this works or even why, just that we can do it. The best that can be gleamed from the decades of research into these studies is that the power of intention plays a part. It’s what we are wanting or intending to see and connect with that jump-starts the process. The ability to go “interdimensional” at times may seem to occur by sheer happenstance, but some amount of energy is being manipulated by our inner selves in order to engage our consciousness to enter into these other realms and environments. That portion of our beings which turns the key in the ignition may not necessarily be our everyday ego minds, but it is a choice made on some level of our consciousness to “go beyond” – and thus, we do.

That we have these abilities is a huge directional sign that says we are equipped with much more functionality than we realized. It’s kind of like getting a new computer and not checking out any of the additionally installed software programs. For eons. Imagine that. The functionality has been there all along, we have just never really stopped to consider it, understand it, nor fully utilize it. We still don’t have the answers to many of these questions … We haven’t “played” enough with the software of our consciousness.

Nonetheless, we are still multidimensional beings with interdimensional functionality. What an amazing form of life we are!

It’s time to go outside (the box) and play. Stay tuned …
