It's been researched that flowers and plants are capable of producing sound. People who love trees, forests, garden plants and flowers feel a special bond, nurturing them to grow and some eccentrics will chat to them. I can think of the plant orchestra that can be listened to by a special audio. Plants respond to external sounds. There might be a reason for the way plants react and especially seeds. Now insects communicate through sounds and they seem to respond to plants in a way that they understand and can hear plants making their own signals.
It's said that different plants make different sounds. They don't play music like the garden flowers did in Disney's "Alice in Wonderland" animation film. Yet it's not really far off though. Consider the way each flower communicates and interacts with everyone. They shunned a miniature Alice because she wasn't part of their orchestra and they thought she was a weed. So in a way wild flowers and other flowers don't get on too well.
I discovered that letting wild plants to grow instead of getting rid of them, actually helped make the garden greener. It attracted more bees, butterflies and other healthy insects to thrive there. Many little spiders appeared on webs. New flowers bloomed, making way for berries that I didn't know was there before. The other flowers and shrubs are doing okay.
Do vegetarians realise that they're eating living creatures? Vegetables are no different than trees and flowers or even animals. They also produce sounds and they communicate and give out vibes. They have auras. They resonate with the other plants and they interact with insects, the soil, stones and other plants. Vegetables are more intense and complex because they're full of vitamins and minerals, edible to humans, while flowers and trees are not. We could go onto discuss fruit and nuts too as well but this is for another post. These vegetables are grown from the soil and have roots contained in the dirt. They collect nourishment from the sky and earth. There are so many myths and folklore about vegetables.
Eating vegetables is important as drinking water. Vegetables are a biological mineral with nutrients and they each have spirits. Sometimes veggies are able to transfer into a tapestry of energy after we eat them and it's the chemicals and supplements that do this. These messages from the vegetables are consumed too and appear in our health.
