It has never been proven that plants react to human talk. But many believe it. A plant can certainly "feel". Hold a flame near a plant and it will "cower" away from it. All flowers in the ground will turn towards the Sun, so they must feel "something". Many people claim that plants "thrive" better if you talk to them.
I talk to my plants, but that's more because when we exhale carbon dioxide it's absorbed by the plant. [My old grade school teacher use to swear by it] there have been some tests done whether or not they feel, I've heard mixed results, so chalk it up to a maybe. Doesn't hurt any.
Duessa, what are you talking about? I'm Wiccan and the closest meditation I can think of is the tree meditation but that's not connecting with a tree, but an energy meditation where your visualize roots grounding you, and branches to charge yourself with energy.
I personally don't know and haven't decided if plants are conscious being, they react to things naturally. But also having a personal connection with some of my plants is great, I feel like they love me and they are beautiful, plants are friends.
