Um, birds also laugh. I exercise in the back yard and they always laugh when I do certain exercises!
I want to establish a link with trees or tree. I made contact with a few devas of thunderstorms over the summer. Was able to ask them to move in certain directions and they did. I intoned a sacred mantra once and the deva very positively responded. This whole event was truly amazing and a few neighbors witnessed the whole thing.
Twice now, after having a special session with higher mind in the woods, a group of birds appeared immediately after to see what I was up to. Rather, they knew and was checking it out. A group of jays and then crows... the latter flew, in formation, right over my spot on the ground. Like how'd they know I was Right there (in the woods)? But the fact they were in formation! As yous must know crows hardly ever, if ever, fly in formation >
Azoth, I think the real issue here is that you are engaging in what is called self-referencing. You are assuming that just because you think something is so, it is so. That is not objective, nor the truth. That is why networking is so important, because without networking, we can convince ourselves about all sorts of fanciful things and take them as truth. For instance, what if 'devas' don't actually exist? Then, you are imagining that you are communicating with them - not actually communicating with them. Do you get my point?
Just because we think something does not make it true. Engaging in magical thinking is not only a waste of precious energy, it can lead to full blown delusion. One of the purposes of this forum is to reach an objective understanding of our shared reality and in order to do that one must first assume that what they think is not the truth, and endeavor to find the truth. You appear to first assume that what you perceive is reality when it is likely not reality at all. fwiw.
