I was hesitant to share this story, but I'm just sincerely curious as to what others may know about it. So here goes:
I really wanted to plant poppy flowers for the LONGest time, but was never able to find any (because certain types are illegal, since they can be used to make drugs.) But honestly, I don't do drugs, and I felt compelled to have poppies for other reasons. Generally, I felt like they were going to help me tune into new kinds of energy, and teach me how to "root" myself and meditate more easily and such.
So I finally found them (Shirley poppies, not drug poppies, I promise hahaha). And then I planted them.
Ever since the day I planted them, my dreams have been very strong. I already trained a bit in lucid dreaming but dropped it a few months ago for certain personal reasons. And since I got the poppies, I've been lucid dreaming without even trying. Also, I've had better recall and my dreams are very clear and straightforward.
3 of the dreams stood out. For example, I had a horrible gut feeling about an old friend last week, like something had happened with her boyfriend and she was very depressed. So I tried to look for her FaceBook and couldn't find it. She had deleted it. I didn't have her number, so I spent the next two days worrying about her deeply. Finally, I had a dream that we sat down and had a nice, looong conversation, and that she was okay. I woke up at peace about it. There were two more dreams where I had conversations with people that settled our issues, and I've been at peace about those situations as well.
Eventually I figured out that my poppies were giving me the dreams!
All my life, I've had this connection with animals, specifically dogs. Even dogs who are trained to fight are super sweet to me and only me. I have conversations with my dogs and they reply... It's like I know exactly what they're thinking. People have witnessed this and know I'm not making it up. I really do talk with animals.
I never knew I could do it with plants, though. But when I talk to them, I feel them listening.
And to confirm it, a few nights ago I had a dream about my poppies, that they were fully bloomed. I felt like they were telling me that they were happy and felt loved, and that they loved me back. And now, every morning I feel like they're the ones waking me up because they miss me, and I feel likewise.
Oh, and two days ago, I couldn't feel them waking me up in the morning. They were really quiet, even after I talked to them. So I looked closer and realized one of the sprouts had died, and then they told me they were mourning him. I was really sad all day, picking up on their sadness.
But before that, they had been very lively, and they kept sending me happy feelings as I sat next to them drinking my tea and meditating (it tickled my stomach so much that I burst out laughing).
Basically I can talk to nonhuman things, hahaha. Sorry that this story is so long.
But I did want to ask. I've heard one story about a lady's rose garden that gave her psychic visions. And poppies represent dreams and sleep, so... If I had planted any other type of flower, would something different have happened? Does anyone know anything about the kind of energies different plants give off? I'd appreciate any information, because I plan to plant others when I know more. Thank you so much.
