Good plant / Bad plant Experiment

This experiment in the E-Squared book is about our affect on Matter.  The actual experiment was to plant bean seeds in an empty egg carton and then give one side positive messages and the other side negative messages.  That was a bit too time intensive and costly, though, so I’ve done a variation.  I bought two pansy plants for 99 cents each.  I put a label of Bad Plant on one and Good plant on the other.  I also put a happy face on the good plant and a sad face on the bad plant.  There’s something about putting an actual label on the plant pots that drives the point home and illustrates how we may feel with a label plastered on us.

I then took the plants outside and placed the on the deck rail.  I spoke nice to the good plant and mean to the bad plant.  I must admit, I feel really guilty being mean to the bad plant.  Poor lil plant didn’t do anything to deserve this.

I’ll be doing this for 7 days.  I’ll also be taking pics to show you results.  Already, in one afternoon, the good plant is looking a little healthier, and the bad plant is looking a little sicker.  I hope the pics will tell the stories.

My partner and the check-out guy at the grocery store thought I was a bit nuts.  We’ll see what story the pics tell.

Experiment updates are in the comments.

About metaminder

A few years ago, I graduated with a Masters degree in Spiritual Nurture from an accredited graduate school. However, I found myself disagreeing with much of the traditional Christian doctrine that I had learned. So I packed up my faith and put it away to examine another day. Recently, I've found myself reconnecting to spirit and discovering alternative practices that guide my life in a positive direction and help me function more fully. I'd like to share my journey of growth and renewal with you as I explore these practices in hopes that you may find them helpful as well. Let me add that I have tried and was even trained in traditional western psychotherapy. While it has it's benefits, it was not enough for me. I found that as a client, talking about the same issues week after week kept me stuck in those issues. When I was being trained, I longed to offer something more to a client than merely handing them the preverbial tissue every so often. I longed to offer touch or teach them coping skills. It hasn't been until the last couple of years where I have learned new techniques such as Reiki, hypnosis, EFT and others. These are techniques that have been of help to me. This is my journey with alternative methods of self-nurture and growth. Your mileage may vary. I invite you to take responsibility for your own well being as you read this blog.

    Hmmmm. Wasn’t able to visit the plants today because of a big rain storm. However, from looking out the window I could see that the good plant was getting clobbered and the bad plant was thriving. What gives?

    It’s Day 4 and the bad plant is still looking a lil better than the good plant. Guess I just feel so guilty for being mean to the bad plant for no other reason than this experiment that some love is creepin in there. I’ll post some pics soon.
