Graceful Gardening

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;

they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

                                                                                         – Marcel Proust

Gardens have always been a place of magic to me.  I feel in communion with nature and myself when in a garden.
Sweet sweet spring is the season of potential.  Nature bursts forth, renewing our faith in possibilities and new beginnings.


Life is no different than a garden.  The quality of your life depends on the nature of the seeds planted deep in your consciousness. The production of the seed depends on the love, care and attention it receives.  As a gardener, I encourage you to look deeply at the seeds that have been sown and are growing in the garden of your soul.


A seed is like an emotion, or life quality.  We are born with some seeds already planted, and in our daily lives we have opportunities to plant more seeds, sometimes consciously and often unconsciously, just out of habit.


Once the seed is planted the next step is vital, what seeds are you nurturing?  Be mindful and focus on showering the positive seeds with love and support, allowing them to grow into strong, abundant, beautiful plants.  Consciously choose to ignore the negative seeds, bless them and allow them to fade away.  You don’t need them to produce something that no longer serves you.


Being mindful of the seeds in your garden is a gorgeous place to start.  Are you planting seeds of a positive loving nature, or do you have a habit of cultivating seeds of frustration, resentment or anger?


Make a conscious choice of planting seeds that will yield joy, loving-kindness, gratitude and compassion.


It’s wonderful that a happy garden multiplies and offers even more beauty with each new spring.  There is always an opportunity for new growth to flourish and for what no longer serves you to fade away.


Relax as you enter your graceful garden and show it gratitude by tending it with loving-kindness and compassion.  Pull up a comfortable chair, enjoy the safe, supportive sanctuary you have created and Smile!
