This week’s question come from J, a wonderful person I know from the Empath Support Forums.
When you talk of setting boundaries, does it work with something like plants? Do all psychic empaths feel the vibrations from plants? Like they perhaps do from animals?
I’m not into nature worship or wiccan rituals etc. etc. However, I had a huge tree for a friend when young but after someone came and cut it down, I was too traumatised to have a friend that ‘died’ so easily and could do nothing to protect itself despite its size. I stuck to humans after that, often with disastrous consequences. I’m usually fairly oblivious to the vibrations from trees and plants. I don’t pay attention to them (the vibrations). However, recently, one night, I came down with a strange heaviness across my back and shoulders, which seemed to weigh steadily, steadfastly. I could not find a reason for this pain, which was very peculiar, sort of diagonal in its spread. Early next morning, during my walk in the park, my body was pulled in a particular direction where I saw a slightly delicate plant almost flattened out by a thick branch of a big tree around it, which had fallen on it, diagonally. The pain in my back and shoulders grew as I walked around the place. It got unbearable and I sensed that it sort of reached me from the plant that now lay almost prostrated. I managed to get rid of the heavy branch with some help, restored the smaller tree to some of its normal posture and gradually the pain in my back and across my shoulders eased off. Within an hour it was gone. I’m glad i was able to help out ‘a tree in need’ but one needs to have boundaries or there would be too much of an encroachment upon oneself with physical manifestations in terms of some illness or the other. Any thoughts on this?
In my experience and studies, I find that plants and animals are very different in energy to people. For those who are sensitive, they can see the energies around trees, flowers, etc, and for those who are seers, they can sense and see what we call nature spirits, and what others call fairies, etc.
Are they real? You bet your bottom dollar they are.
The main difference between the human collective consciousness and that of nature’s collective consciousness is that they are very much aware of their oneness with all. Nature has a voice, and much wisdom is there for those who are capable of hearing.
As bizarre as this might sound (and without seeing your photo), some people are nature spirits incarnated into human bodies.
If you sense a resonance with trees and plants, chances are you are connected in some way to those levels or to the Gaia energy.
You are clearly very sensitive when it comes to nature energy. Having a tree for a friend is not something too many have as a child in my experience. Also, you are extremely psychic, which tends to be another sign.
While nature can look after itself quite nicely, it does call for help. Though its destiny cannot be perverted or prevented, it does seem it calls on others to assist from time to time.
Personally, I feel this was a wakeup call for you. It was to make you aware of your connection to nature. Boundaries certainly can be set, and you can ask to be left alone, but I don’t feel this is what you should do in this case.
There is another world out there… an amazing and powerful world of wisdom, healing and evolution. If you can re-connect to it, it can be a great blessing in your life, though also be aware that it can increase the sense of isolation from being human.
An excellent series of books on this topic has been written by Michael J Roads. It might well be worthwhile looking him up.
Just remember, just as nature can draw on your help and energy, it can also give you energy, and healing, and a sense of peace and oneness.

I enjoyed this Q&A. Thank you.
I have a question about something that happened when I was an adolescent. My class was on a field trip to the Museum of Natural History in NYC. One of the rooms was filled with mineral and gem samples, some of them quite large. When I was in that room, I could hear a persistent and somewhat annoying ringing sound such that I couldn’t stay in the room. I asked some of my classmates if they could hear it. No one else did.
Is this something you have heard of? Is it some indication of sensitivity? What was I hearing?
I can’t say I’ve heard of that, though, if t was filled with mineral samples, I’m wondering if you were attuned to something there. Did you have any feelings or did you notice any particular source at all?
There were rows and rows of glass cases filled with minerals, gems, and crystals. The sound was stronger in some parts of the room but I never tried to narrow it down to a specific source as it was very irritating just to be in the room. I’ve been in stores that sell rocks and semi-precious stones and have not had this happen.
It would be interesting to go back to that museum (if they still have that exhibit) and see if I can still hear the sound.
As far as feelings, I was pretty cut off from my feelings as a child, result of abusive parents. I kept my feelings locked down pretty tight. All I remember is the noise, and feeling very odd since I was the only one who could hear it. I kept going in and out of that room just to see if I might not be imagining it.
There was a comment made by a psychic lady I once knew. She said that she put her crystals in a circle around her before she went to bed, but she couldn’t sleep because they were whispering all night. I know when I’ve slept with crystals, while I never heard them, I would wake up in the middle of the night feeling out of sort, and uncomfortable.
I’m wondering if you’re picking up a ‘voice’ or a resonance that you may be attuned to.
Thanks. I will listen for that more carefully from now on.
Shot in the dark here. I once had a friend who had also undergone a period of extreme shut off of emotions. Instead of emotions at this time he felt a tingle in his toe, like he had compressed all emotions into one compact area that was easy for him to deal with.
If you were so emotionally removed at the time you may have converted it to sound. I cannot say where the emotions were coming from, that is, what triggered them, but perhaps something in the room set off an extreme emotional response that had to be express in a way.
The problem with emotional shut off is that the emotions don’t go away, the body just finds new ways to express them. If the ways of expression get too obscure, it is hard to interpret them as it is usually an individual map for responses rather than the usual ways which can be traced back to the trigger of the emotion.
No, they don’t go away. They just manifest in other ways. You need to heal or transmute them.
