If You Give A Plant Attention
A Shaman experience, shared with love to inspire you to slow down long enough to “Smell the Roses”
A close friend shared with me one day how when placing attention to a plant, the plant may respond. She shared her experience as I attempted to understand. Like many things in life, until one has the experience, words are only letter combinations.
During a visit to her home in Hawaii, off-grid, so peaceful; her hands made such beauty in all directions. Each little cove of landlocked greenery was sprinkled with touches of a spiritual nature created from her fingertips.
Sitting one late afternoon, in the shade of the trees, I had the pleasure of the experience she had mentioned long ago. It was such a delightful experience I wish it for everyone.
Sitting lotus style, opened and aligned, began passing energy with the earth and then the heavens. Taking in deep breaths, simply being, eyes closed and feeling, being. Recalling clearly opening my eyes and loving all that was before them. With a Hawk’s view, if you will, there was a deep Knowing of how interconnected each plant, tree and animal truly is; it was all weaved together in perfection, one heart beating. Then panning in like the mouse view, shifted focus; directly in front of me, at the “12’o’clock”, these eyes took focus to this delight of a plant.
Remembering its sleek lines, with the balance of a ballerina, the leaves stretched in every direction. Recalling the appreciation felt within from the colors in which it was painted. The deepest, richest of greens highlighted gently on the edges, upon the green was the sharp detailing of a deep tone of burgundy and scarlet. A silence fell over the rest of the world and only this one plant was in clear focus. Just as I had finalized the visual sweep across a single leaf, further admiring the details, the entire plant began to shake and wiggle.
Now I must admit, in that moment I placed a wonder to the why. For a brief moment, my gaze looked upward, all around us was completely calm, no breeze was causing this, all the trees surrounding were very still. Refocusing to this wonder, sliding past denial, in that very moment, I began to giggle. Deep within my belly, this innocent of giggles, somehow I understood this was a reaction to what the plant was feeling! I swear this plant was giggling! Must admit the thought of a fairy entered my mind, but somehow knew this was not the case. About the time I sat mouth dropped open to this witness of such delight; an inner Knowing came over me. From that moment on I Knew, everything alive can feel intent. In that next moment, the entire jungle came to life again. All the sounds, the wind, was as it had been before placing this focus to this one plant as the plant began to calm and sit innocently quiet once again.
Would encourage anyone to take the time to sit upon the earth and Be, One with Everything. Not only does it raise our vibration and increase our immunity but it also might allow you the moment of delight as well. One only needs to place focus and attention.
If you give a plant attention.
If you give a plant attention,
Chances are it will get excited.
When it gets excited,
Chances are it may vibrate in pure delight of your attention.
When it vibrates in delight,
Chances are it will surprise you,
I know, You know, they are Alive.
If you give your cells attention,
Chances are they will get excited.
When they get excited,
Chances are they will vibrate in pure delight of your attention.
When they vibrate in delight,
Chances are it will surprise you,
I Know, you Know, you are Alive.
Once you are over this surprise
You may want to experience it again.
Chances are if you experience it again,
It will remind you of something.
It will remind you that you are a miracle,
And the only thing stopping you is Love.
When you realize Love is easy to give,
It will remind you that you are Love.
Once reminded of this love
It will make you want to share more.
Once you begin sharing love,
Chances are the world around you will change.
With these changes, you may be reminded
That All of life is a cycle.
With that knowledge stepping forward,
It might remind you to be prepared for the next chance, the next steps.
When you get that chance again,
Step out of that comfort zone and try it.
Once you try it,
Chances are you will like that feeling.
And that will remind you as your cells dance,
All one has to do is place focus to Every cell with Pure intent.
