There is more than a century of scientific evidence indicating that human telepathy is real¹, however it still remains largely dismissed as pseudoscience. It is no wonder, then, that the concept of interspecies telepathy is just too big a step for many people to take, despite the fact that it is easier to do than human-to-human telepathy for most people. Perhaps this is because a worldview shift is required, an understanding that consciousness is not situated in the brain and is, rather, non-local. This view allows that humans and plants can communicate telepathically, and is shared by indigenous cultures worldwide. Scientific studies for interspecies telepathy have been done since the William J. Long first described it in an academic sense in 1919. Erickson (2011)² provides a comprehensive overview of these studies, which indicate that, not only is interspecies telepathy possible, but that it is not limited by time or distance and, therefore, that the information is exchanged in a way that is beyond being dependent on the material or on electromagnetism. Erickson also describes that some this ability is more highly developed in some individuals, but that it can vary over time for individuals. Most interspecies communicators maintain that one’s emotional state strongly influences the capacity to communicate.
The mechanism for this innate ability probably operates in much the same way as for Eco-treaties and Nature Constellations, and while the mechanism is not known, the quantum physics seems to offer a potential explanation. Schrödinger’s entanglement theory offers an explanation for the mechanism of telepathy: At a quantum level, which is beyond the atomic particle level, the separation between units of physical matter disappears and everything is connected in a continuous matrix. Einstein called this “spooky action at a distance”, thinking it was a mathematical error. Hensen et al. (2015)³ have now proven that influencing one electron that had been separated from another electron (i.e. changing the spin of the electron) causes the second electron to be influenced in the same way, regardless of distance. Also, this happened at exactly the same time, since the distance was big enough between the particles that information could not be sent between them, even at the speed of light, which means that the particles behave as if they are one. So although entanglement is not understood, it has been proven without any loopholes. Essentially the physical world is such that it is profoundly interconnected, which may be the basis of the mechanism of telepathy, regardless of the species of organism, distance or time.
Once the necessary worldview shifts have taken place in a person’s mind, all that remains is for him/her to learn how to practice this innate ability. Regardless of an inclination to (re)learn this ability, some people do seem to display a stronger innate capacity for interspecies communication; however, everyone is capable of communicating with nature, but how the messages are received, and the type and level of detail received, differs for each person. Messages can be received in pictures, words, smells, feelings, sensations in the body, sudden “knowings” or any combination of these. It is advisable to practice with validation, so that the difference between an imagined message and a real message received from another being can be distinguished. Imagined messages take longer to develop than real ones, which are received immediately, and without an awareness of this distinction, and an ability to differentiate, a person’s decision based on interspecies communication can be interfered with by with the mind and ego. This is perhaps the main reason why the messages received and the ability of the person receiving the messages can be doubted. However, confidence in a person’s ability, both within themselves and from others, develops with practice and validation of the messages received and shared. Professional animal communicators, for example, build a reputation through word-of-mouth and reports of the accuracy of their communications with client’s animals.
Scientific evidence to support telepathic interspecies communication is still accumulating. And even so, most people will remain skeptical of it until they have witnessed or experienced it themselves. Experiential evidence, although subjective, can be still be validated through intersubjectivity. So it is on this note that the reader is left with an invitation to scrutinise the body of evidence themselves and perhaps to even gather their own experience on the phenomenon.
