Communicating with Plants



Signatures of Plants – Learning Nature’s Alphabet

There are those who say they get messages from plants and that plants actually speak to them with a human voice, telling them the healing virtues of an herb. Others, (like me) get pictures in our minds that seem to be another form of direct communication from the plant world. Many other plant identification and communication systems have been devised over the millennia that do not rely on the written word.

Thousands of years ago the ancient Chinese developed a system of plant classification based on flavor, temperature and direction. Armed with this knowledge, an herbalist could identify which plants were most useful for a particular illness.

The Four Natures

Chinese herbalism divided herbs into warm, hot, cool and cold. A cooling or cold plant was suitable for a “Yang” (congested, full, toxic) hot disease, and a hot or warm herb was given for a “Yin” (dissipating energy, debilitated, chilly) cold disease. Some herbs were considered “neutral” and could be given for both cold and hot conditions.

1. Interesting OP, icymist. I will never understand those that deny wisdom of the ages in favor of

modern poisons.

2. Primary Perception

Have you ever read this book?

It's about measuring the plant response to humans.
