“To see things in the seed, that is genius.” – Lao Tzu
Hello Spiritual Warriors!! Throughout the month, our attention has been on Setting Your Course for 2014. We’ve let go of what no longer serves us. Nature abhors a vacuum – so releasing non-nourishing thoughts, words, and behaviors has made a sweet open space for us to fill with more nourishing aspects of life. Then we gained clarity looking at our dreams through the lens of the Five Realms – our physical, emotional, material, relationship, and spiritual unfoldings as we move through the world.
And now it’s time to plant the seeds of our evolution. Our intentions are those seeds, which determine the vibration of our existence – the fabric of our lives. So what seeds shall we plant? Now that we have gained clarity, the act of seed-planting is that step that puts our dreams out into the universe. When we plant seeds that come from our heart…then our manifesting will flow love into the world…uplift our soul and raise our vibration. When we plant seeds that come from a poverty consciousness, a lack mentality, or a constricted viewpoint then our whole physiology and emotional energy reflects our limiting beliefs. It’s easier to see it in others – often we are too close to the situation or caught up in years of conditioning and we don’t realize WE are the constriction. When our attention is on the “what ifs” of life rather than the bigger picture, our thinking becomes petty; our view becomes narrowed; and we start to “play small.”
When we truly believe that the best is yet to come and we are willing to embrace uncertainty, then we open the door to the unknown where the magnificence of the universe supports our BIG dreams.
My dear friend, the Dutch yogi and Vedic teacher Rosalinda Weel has written extensively about the process of manifesting our dreams; she has taught thousands to dream big and accept that there is a gentle unfolding as we GROW INTO our dreams. We often think we want to have all the abundance of the universe RIGHT NOW!! Today!! But realistically, we aren’t prepared for cataclysmic change all at once. If we dream big and then purposefully step into our dreams as we grow, then we open our selves to new, rich, fresh unfoldings as we fill our dreams with grace and ease.
This is why planting seeds is so important. There is an incubation stage where all the millions of pieces of our dream need to come together – this allows a stronger foundation to develop slowly, so that blossoming can occur on firm footing. It serves nothing in the universe to plant your seeds and have them grow into giant trees over night. We need to experience that moment where the sprout breaks the soil, gently unfolds, rises to the sun, and begins to strengthen. That is the magnificence of planting seeds…as they grow, we grow; as they evolve, we evolve, and in so doing, we develop new dreams, new directions, new visions, and ultimately new dreams – which we can slowly grow into as well.
Let’s plant seeds from a place of abundance; let’s dream big and grow into our dreams; let’s have the patience as Lao Tzu said, “to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear. Till the right action arises by itself.”
Planting seeds is all about knowing what you are planting and giving the universe permission to unfold your dreams with grace and ease. Join me this week on Hay House Radio at 3p PST/6p EST and we will plant some amazing seeds together. I’ll see you in the gap!! Peace. -davidji
