First of all, I have to apologize for having skipped a month (February) on the blog. 2020 has started off on a busy note for me and while it’s been a ‘good busy’ I am still figuring out how to get my schedule together to accommodate the changes in my life. All right so let’s talk about planting seeds.
We chose ‘gardening’ as our theme for March for very obvious reasons. For thousands of years, this time of year has been known as the time to begin sowing seeds for harvest. And in the words of the great Lauryn Hill, "everything is everything" so if we’re planting seeds in the physical realm…. why wouldn’t we apply that same logic to the soul realm? (Or in the spiritual, emotional, psychological sphere, etc., as well)
As mentioned on the Instagram post, our brain is a garden. And just like any garden, you reap what you’re sowing in that jawn. So let’s really focus on what kind of seeds we want to see blossom in the future. For me, this is a big deal as I’m trying to set myself up for an abundant harvesting season. One of my biggest struggles for me are my thoughts of negativity and doubt. In order to combat this, I’m planting seeds of preparedness in that I’ve been doing a lot of writing and fine-tuning of my work (books, screenplays, blog posts). I’ve identified things that motivate me and surrounded myself with them. Additionally, I’ve followed up with people who have similar interests as me so that in the future, when something comes up we will BOTH be prepared to collaborate.
All of these things do not promise me anything. But what it does, is give me the peace of mind that I did everything that needed to be done in order to allow the Universe to do its thing.
A great quote by Bhagavad Gita goes…
“You have the right to work, but for work's sake only. You have no right to the fruits of work. Desire for the fruits of work must never be your motive in working.”
This may sound a little extreme, I know, but when you think about it… it goes right along with our themes of staying in the moment. Enjoying it for whatever it is. Feeling it (the moment) and giving your actions the full respect that it deserves. It is only when you fully commit yourself to whatever you’re doing, that you can truly say you’ve given your all.
Ask anyone who does yoga, practices a sport or is an expert at anything… you have to put in the time, the work and the attention. There’s no way around it.
So do yourself a favor this year (I’m doing this too, mind you), get a notebook and write down what you want to sew. Just like some gardeners keep notebooks or plant those little paper packets with pictures of veggies or flowers to remind themselves what they’re growing and where, you also want to keep note of what you want to see sprouting up in your life in the upcoming months.
I’m excited to see what you come up with!
