You know what happens when you plant a seed?
You put it in the dark, in dirt.
Then it gets some moisture and it starts to rot.
Yep, it starts to rot.
From there that little seed begins to sprout new life.
It does not sit there whimpering "Why does this always happen to me? Am I being punished? Am I unworthy?" No it is not whimpering. It starts sprouting.
Can you believe it?
Then, even after all that work of sprouting, sometimes that seed's first leaves are encumbered and burdened with the seed casing. Oof, seriously? But that does not stop that little seedling from pushing upward toward its fullness. And that little seed also sends its roots down, claiming its space, its right to exist and flourish.
So next time you feel like you're buried, burdened or overwhelmed, next time you just feel rotten or worthless, see if you can imagine that you are exactly where you need to be so you can sprout and grow into an even more magnificent you. Push your way toward the warmth of the Light. (Think positive thoughts.)
You can do this!
The walnut tree in my back yard lost the last of its leaves for winter. We're past the fall now and full on into the winter. And the walnut tree just looks stagnant, like it's just taking a break from producing anything. Only on closer examination, you can se the tips of the trees are ready to burst open at the first sign of spring!
Just because you may feel like not much is happening in your life, doesn't mean that things are stagnant. Energy moves in waves and cycles. Sometimes you just need to lay low. When the next wave of energy rises within you, trust that you can catch that wave for some new movement. Visualize what you want for yourself in your life. See it clearly and trust that the opportunity will arise for you to step into what you envision. Be ready to take action in the right time! It doesn't all happen at once and it doesn't happen on demand either.
Hang in there. You are precious and good just exactly where you are right now.
