As we move into Spring and observe the nature around us, we see the new growth, the flowers blooming, leaves turning green, and new life springing up everywhere. We can bring this back into our own lives.
Each day we plant seeds, and over time these seed become physical manifestations. You have planted seeds of things that you want, things you have been thinking about that may be the beginning of an idea, and those things that call to you.
Identifying the things we have been thinking about, wishing for, and have already planted seeds for, let’s see how far we have come and if we are still moving in a direction we wish to go. If we don’t pause and take a look at these things, we get swept up in the flow of daily life, with months passing by, and having no idea if our life is going where we want it to. By taking stock, we get to see if the path we are on is the one we want to be on, or if it is time to change direction.
Pause and look at the seeds you have planted and those you still hold in your hand.
The seeds you have planted:
Every day we plant seeds. Look for seeds you have planted already – those things that you set in motion before but you have not paused to see their growth. You may have started studying or learning new skills, had a career or relationship change, or begun working on your dream. Think about the things you have planted in the past and take time to look for the evidence of their appearance in your life. Feed the things that are serving you and watch them grow.
The seeds you hold that are the beginning of an idea:
Make a list of those things that were simply thoughts but you didn’t act on them. Look closely at this list – there may only be one thing on this list. Spend time with this idea. Bring it to life. If this idea was a reality right now, what would it look like? Who would be in this picture? What would you see if you took a walk in this space and looked around? Does this vision excite you? If so, it is time to plant the seed. Start by writing down the vision you experienced and work backwards to the beginning. What can you do to get the ball rolling on this idea? You don’t need to go full out if you are not ready, but starting with one small step signals the Universe/Source/God/Goddess that you ready to birth the dream. The people and things you need for this dream begin to move towards you.
The birth of new ideas:
Free your mind of the constraints of your present reality and write down all the things you have been thinking about and wishing for. Did any of these things make the lists above? If not, a new idea has been born. Nurture this idea – think about what seeds you can plant and how you can feed this and bring it to life.
Time does not dictate how fast things come to you – your readiness for it is all that matters. Plant the seeds, examine the seeds you had planted, and notice what you reap. Allow the seeds you plant to build the life you desire.
