Song of the Plants
We are currently in between flowering season here and majority of my summer flowering orchids now resting. All late autumn and winter blooms not here yet so my attention turned to repotting and general maintenance of my plants. That of course does not meant that new and exiting discoveries not happening.
For a while I wanted to write about the Song of the Plants and to introduce everyone to this magical energy. Since everything is a vibration, plants like everything else have their own tone and harmonics. Many "plant" people know this already, in the deeper parts of themselves they have discovered this truth.
Do we talk to our plants and do they talk back? What do they communicate back to us and can we understand them? Often one needs to go beyond the mind and the logic and just let plants to express themselves. I've been asked numerous times about cultivation techniques for different orchids and I am always lost for words to describe the whole growing cycle of any plant and my best advise is to just listen to the plant, it will tell one exactly what it needs to thrive in your own environment. Some people find this concept difficult in our "Age of Reason", yet growing beautiful orchids or roses or trees or herbs is never a mental or logical exercise, we all do that because we love their energy.
Native people have always considered plants as living beings who's power lies in their energetic or vibrational qualities. The energy pattern of every plant is unique and has it's own special characteristics. We all grow different plants because we are now rediscovering concept of wholeness - a recurring theme in many ancient philosophies and it's relevance to us. Wise men living several thousands of years ago proposed that when we are totally integrated, the life force abounds, bringing with it real sense of health and happiness. The way to attain such inner harmony, they claimed, is to respect Nature and her ways.
Quite a few years ago I had an opportunity to visit eco village of Damanhur in Northern Italy, the sustainable community of people who live in balance with all Nature and have the most fondest memories of that place and it's people. And I was delighted finally to find recording of singing plants taken at Damanhur and to share it with you all.
As usual, I have more questions than answers, questions like" do native plants have different harmony" or "is healing plants have different energy" or "does ancient plants vibrate differently from hybrids" or "different color of same plant have different harmonics" or "do birds singing in the trees or in the forest contribute to plant's energetic makup" - and many many more questions. I am still looking for an answers and in the mean time, here is the Celestial Song of the plants - enjoy it:
