When you plant a seed you trust in the web of life. You open yourself to the mystery of creation, the alchemy of earth, air, light and water. You affirm life.
When you plant a seed, you stand in the present moment with hopes, dreams and a vision for your future, a knowing of the world you wish to create.
When you plant a seed, you work in partnership with all that is, with the spirits of nature. You become an integral component in the web of creation, a facilitator of life on Earth.
When you plant a seed, you trust in the future and surrender to divine timing, knowing that germination will occur exactly when seed, earth, air, sunlight, and water come into the proper balance and proportion.
You set the process into motion and surrender to the mystery. In this way, you release control and allow the miracle to unfold.
You are a sower of seeds of the plants that feed you, beautify your world, hold the soil across the earth, shade your gardens yards and homes, plants that clothe and shelter you, plants that make this world green and pleasant and clean the air…
You also sow seeds of energy and intention. Let the seeds of your intentions run to love and connection. Let them strengthen and unify and heal the web of life. Let your intentions bless this earth and all who dwell here.
You may not know where or how the seeds and intentions you sow will take root and grow.
It is enough to plant your seeds with a trusting and loving heart and allow the miracle you have envisioned to unfold in divine time.
Can you trust in the never ending stream of guidance and loving support that comes from spirit? It is like a well or spring that will never run dry. It is constantly refreshed and renewed as your life circumstances change.
Perhaps you have not personally felt or experienced this flow of guidance in your life. It is there, beneath the surface of your thoughts. It takes a bit of tuning in to begin and live by your guidance.
Let your spirit out to play!
It is the knowing that seems to be there inside that always is on target. It comes from within you in many disguises. Do not seek this power outside of yourself, in gurus, objects of value, money, looks, fame… the impulse, impetus and inspiration from spirit comes through you! And – it feels good!
Little by little learn to discern the voice of spirit from the voice of your logical ego brain that tries to keep you separate from others, that attempts to herd you into a corral, or box of “proper” or conventional and limited ways of being and responding and thinking. The voice of Spirit will never promote chronic fear in your life.
Maybe you seem drawn to a particular book or website that has exactly the information you need, information you can trust, that touches your heart and rings true. Trust it! Perhaps you see a beautiful bird, or animal that lifts your spirit and gives you hope. Trust it! Perhaps you feel within you a certain knowing of the course of action that you are to take. Trust it!
Even if you can’t explain exactly why, trust it! If you unsure, trust, and test the waters, trust, test the waters… see if your guidance carries you through. Let go of judgment and worry. The more you trust and act on your true guidance that comes from spirit, the more will be given to you!
When you send your ego to the baby sitter and let spirit come out to play, life can expand into joy!
Hang on, winter weary humans, spring is coming! In the meantime, don’t wish your life away! Have faith like my roots that reach deep into the soil below the place where ice and cold and snow can touch them – deep into the warm dark earth, our home.
Have faith and trust that all is well! Behind the heavy cloud cover is the blue sky, beneath the snow, the grass waits, beneath the dead leaves and frozen soil, all manner of living things sleep, ready for the return of the sun.
Do not despise this time of year. Do not hate your circumstances. Do not live in the future imagined sunny day; for when you live in the fantasies of your mind, you negate the only thing that really matters, your most precious gift, the present moment!
You make yourself powerless when you live only in your head! It is your body and heart that live here and now. Find a way to fully inhabit your body, for then you will find true joy. Find something to take pleasure in each day, even if the snow lies until June!
You have been given a treasured gift- life here on earth. Use it wisely
