21 Day Cacao Challenge – Communicating with Plants (Day 16)


The last two weeks I have been deepening my relationship with the Spirit of Cacao and she has supported me through my personal inner alchemy of transforming aspects of myself into truth and love.

How to communicate with Plants…

Plant Spirits carry codes and healing properties.  This week’s practice is to tune into our surroundings, to the tree outside your house to going outside in nature and practicing deep listening.  We can only hear what nature has to say when we have silenced our mind.  This week the invitation is to use Cacao to find our inner silence so we can tune in and decipher Mother Earths messages.

Shaman Durek in his book Spirit Hacking, gives some great hints and tips on how to log into nature.  He believes that Nature is a powerful teacher and a powerful ally.  Most people have no idea how much wisdom or knowledge, power and healing nature has to share with us because most people are so busy logging into their smart phones and social media feeds.

Logging into nature activates our connection with the nature spirits and opens up the communication channel. 

Today’s ritual is to communicate with plants… after drinking our cacao, I headed out for a walk and found a tree that is vibrant and colourful, one that stood out for me, this is how plants call to you, by glowing at you.

We were invited to approach the plant with kindness and sit next to it, to observe the plant, it’s smell and patterns.  To silence the mind and tune into the plant and to become aware of what we are experiencing and if there are any messages from the plant. And to write our experience down in our journal.

My experiences:

One of the things I have noticed during this challenge, is that my plants are flourishing, and the animals and birds are more active in my garden.  The Squirrels have been intent on trying to communicate with me too… coming right up to the window and sometimes licking the windows!  Epic little creatures! 

The more we tune into nature, the more the birds and animals will see us as nature.

We are part of the Earth, and it is part of us.

What am I Grateful for today?

The sweet taste of an apple.

One thing today that made me feel ‘I Love my life’:

The joy of being able to watch a baby squirrel attempt to climb a pole, where I have hung fat balls for the wild birds.  He didn’t stop trying and each time he got a bit closer to the delicious cargo… never give up was the message I took from this little guy today.

How did I follow my intuition today (with what results?)

Today I felt like drawn to doing a Womb Clearing Ceremony, by Lisa Bardell.  Afterwards I felt uplifted and less cranky!

What Physical Changes are taking place?

Each day I have more resilience and mental clarity.
