I know how important it is to watch the words I say because they will become a part of my own life experience. But it never occurred to me to notice what seeds I was allowing to gain a foothold in my own garden. Self-doubt? Uncertainty? Fear?
How does your inner garden grow?
I recently did a releasing ceremony on a webinar and I found that what I wanted to release was my unbelief in my own value. Hmmm. What a sneaky weed that has been. What seeds of a belief will you release? “I can’t do that”? “I don’t deserve that”? “That can never happen”?
What steps do we take to eradicate that weed? What needs to happen for me to feel my own value to a deeper degree? Find a persistent unwanted weed with a very long root and pull it out of your garden. You will sigh with relief.
You choose your own crop
I love the Khalil Gibran quote, “I like to think I am a seed spreading awareness.” What a wonderful image to feel myself as a flying seed fluff being borne along by a summer breeze and landing in places I never expected. If you don’t know where you’ll end up, you’d better make your seed super special so it has a chance to develop.
One seed can make a difference
You need to pay attention both to the seeds you plant and the seeds you simply allow to flourish in your garden. That means we must examine and question what comes our way. A negative opinion belongs to that other person, not in your garden. A shared laugh is a welcome addition.
Look closely at what hidden doubts are hiding in your garden and order them to leave.
