There is something marvelous that happens when writing down good dreams, daydreams, what you are looking forward to and hoping might happen, and what you are truly grateful for. What happens is that as you write it down, the positive focus of energy you are feeling helps make it happen.
Three Key Components: Gratitude, Dreams, Plans
The key components to successful RealityShifters journals is that they contain all positive, uplifting content… with gratitude and appreciation for what’s happened, dreams and daydreams you have today, and plans you look forward to in the future.
There are three main types of things to write in a RealityShifters Journal, and what they all have in common is that just thinking about them makes you feel terrific: What’s happened that you’re grateful for, what you’re dreaming and daydreaming about right now, and what you’re planning for the future. Your RealityShifters Journal brings positive energy into your past, present and future through your positive feelings about the posts, sketches, and drawings you include… and you use special colors or symbols to indicate which posts are which as you go along. I like to draw clouds around dreams and daydreams, for example, so later on when I look back through old RealityShifters Journals I can see what was going through my mind at the time.
Write it Down, Make it Happen
One of my favorite things about RealityShifters Journals is that very often, what I write down in my RealityShifters Journal comes true, often within that same year. Some things I have written down that came true after having dreamed or daydreamed them are: going on a European vacation with my daughters, and getting a free Apple laptop computer. There is something fabulous about the positive energy in RealityShifters Journals, so that just having it present and active in one’s life seems to help open doors to wonderful new possibilities where there were no doors before.

Choosing Your Journal
The best RealityShifters journal is one you’ll use, and you’re most likely to use a journal you enjoy holding and writing things in. My favorite kind of RealityShifters journal is a datebook made by BrushDance, and it features a spiral binding and heavy-duty cardboard covers, so it’s easy to open and write in. I love the cardboard tabs separating each month, and the month-at-a-glance page at the beginning of each month that lets me easily write down dates I’m looking forward to, and short notes about wonderful things that have already taken place.
Where to Keep Your Journal
Having a special place to keep your RealityShifters Journal is a good idea, and if you like, you can place it in a prosperity section of your room or home in order to further energize everything you most love. If you have a special place for your journal in the southeast corner of a room, that’s ideal… but any place of honor that you can see and access regularly can work splendidly.

I hope you get a chance to start working with your RealityShifters journal soon, so you can make a daily practice of contemplating my favorite meditative question, “How good can it get?!” … and experience the joy of finding the answers!
“I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest against the earth’s sweet flowing breast” — Joyce Kilmer
I was startled one afternoon to receive a small potted plant from my friend, Helen, who begged with empassioned urgency, “Please take this ficus… Peter’s killing it!” One look at the small plant was all I needed to feel love and empathy for it, as I saw the few leaves it had were drooping, and it’s soil was dry with an air gap around the edges of dirt in its pot. The tiny ficus reminded me of Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree, with its diminutive size and stature so much smaller than one would expect from a tree.
This same ficus tree now stands taller than me, and has been a permanent resident in a place of honor by a south facing window in my living room for the last couple of decades. It has been through many repottings and branch trimmings over the years, and its trunk is now broader than my arm. I feel a sense of peace and love when I sit near this tree, in much the way I feel calmed when stroking a dog or cat’s fur.
We can benefit from feeling love and affection for plants every bit as much as we do for our furry companions, and some horticulturists have noted and written about how trees are pets, too. There are many similarities between plants and animals, with both depending on humans for care and optimal living conditions. Plants thrive when loved and cared for, and humans thrive when surrounded by supportive plants. Recent research studies have shown that plants have consciousness and the ability to communicate in ways that protect and defend their area, albeit on a much slower time scale than animals typically respond.
“When plants have been hooked up to lie detector equipment, they’ve shown strong negative responses to being around someone who simply thought about burning a leaf, and responded equally strongly when a visitor arrived who killed plants for a living. Other researchers working with plants have found that they respond in a positive way to someone who feels love for them. When I participated in recent plant studies conducted at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, I could see the auric field of the plant expand as it responded to IONS Senior Scientist Dean Radin, author of numerous scientific research papers investigating various psychic phenomena. The plant reacted each time Radin stroked a tender new leaf, or brought some water for it when its soil was dry. At the same time as the plant’s auric field increased, the ECG-like monitoring equipment displayed a prolonged spike.”
My favorite night spent in a hotel was unquestionably the night I spent in a tree house in Oregon… where I felt a sense of ecstatic bliss being ensconced in a tree’s energy field all night long. I highly recommend the experience of spending time in a tree house if you ever get the opportunity, as there is no way I can adequately or completely describe the sense of joy and wonder I felt as I felt the tree swaying me gently while holding me securely all night long.
If you feel somewhat skeptical that plants can demonstrate consciousness in any way humans can relate to, I encourage you to check out some of the amazing work being done at Damanhur, Italy, involving music of the plants. My first encounter with plants playing music was at the second international conference on science and consciousness in Albuquerque, New Mexico, when plants played music on Stephen Halpern’s synthesizer, with amazing results. As I reported for Enlightenment News in June 2000,
Steven Halpern and music of the plants
“The evening Steven Halpern concert was truly amazing, because Steven had a very special guest performer – a potted plant! A philodendron was hooked up to a MIDI and synthesizer with two alligator clipped wires, and it proceeded to play a beautiful, complex piece of very unique music. The philodendron’s song started off sounding a little bit sleepy, then gradually picked up tempo and proceeded to play a song unlike anything I’ve ever heard humans play! It was exquisite, and soothing, and fresh. The notes would rise and sustain on high notes that sounded something like someone playing a rising scale on a xylophone … then it would be quiet.
Next, a melody would begin with lower notes and a chord would hang suspended and sustained as notes rose slowly … bringing to my mind the vision of water flowing down gently from a plant’s leaves into the soil after a rain. I almost felt like I could smell the fresh air of the outdoors in this very large conference room! Halpern explained that some people from Damanhur in Italy had created the technology which allows any plant to “sing,” provided the plant is awake and willing to participate.”
To get an idea of just how amazing music of the plants truly sounds, I encourage you to watch a video filmed in Damanhur, Italy that shows talking, musical plants.

I hope you’ll enjoy watching and sharing my YouTube video summary of Plants are Pets, Too — featuring me and my furry canine companion — and I hope you’ll feel free to leave comments either here on this blog or on my YouTube video page.
Noticing that plants have conscious awareness is something we can benefit from in many ways, not the least of which involves feeling the joy and comfort of having special relationships with them. And all of this helps expand what we imagine possible when we contemplate my favorite meditative question, “How good can it get?!”
