The Power of a Plant

Interesting to stumble upon this plant (on the clearance rack, no less) while I’m reading a chapter in “The Source Field Investigations” by David Wilcock about the pinecone-shaped pineal glad in the center of your brain — or your third eye — and how this symbol pops up in sacred art around the world.

The pineal gland is considered by many to be the “point of contact for telepathic information exchange,” as Wilcock puts it. It is, basically, your soul — the door you open to access God and see into the spiritual realm.

This plant’s pink projection looks just like a pinecone to me. So if all this ancient symbolism holds any truth, this must be a pretty soulful plant, this Bromeliad. My boyfriend suggested I name it Lady, and that seems appropriate.

In the first chapter of this book, Wilcock investigates the research of Cleve Backster, who studied the powers of hypnosis and ended up with the CIA helping to pioneer the use of the polygraph. His secretary bought him the first plants he had ever owned. After working through the night, he had a crazy sleep-deprived idea: Hook the plants up to the polygraph.

With just a thought about harming the plant by burning its leaves, Backster noticed the plant’s waves jolt sharply, like it was “screaming.” But here’s the part that will really blow your mind: Once you start caring for a plant, it will start to react to you even when you’re not around. When you miss a turn on the highway or experience some other anxiety, and even when you make the spontaneous decision to return home, your plants react.

So now that this Pink Lady and I have gotten to know each other a little bit, I would be very interested to know what she thinks as I read the rest of this intriguing book…
