As I stare at my corkboard of desires, I sense that this year will be much different. There will are bound to be valleys of growth, and mountaintops of celebrations-moments of protest, and moments of sheer rapture. This year I know I am going places that I have never traveled, not even in my imagination. I feel my thoughts aligning with abundance. My thoughts and beliefs are married with intention. This happy couple walks hand and hand through the neural pathways of my mind. Each affirmation of success, joy, love, and prosperity strengthens their connection. I place notecards on my mirrors, reminders on my fridge and program alarms onto my phone. Everyday I focus my energy on this vision for my life.
As I gaze over the words that decorate this board, one magazine phrase pops out at me, “Ready to ignite a new world of possibilities?” The sheer magic of this statement gives me goose bumps! "Did you hear that Universe, I'm ready!! Ready to be of service!"
My eyes quickly fixated on a plant I rescued from the heat of summer. This trailing pot of verde is carefully tucked in amongst two of my favorite minerals. As I focused in on this little guy, I could see some shriveling vines trailing down the side of the pot.
“Oh crap!” My heart sank as I couldn’t remember the last time I watered this little guy.
I plucked the dead segments and quickly gathered up my watering can. As I showered this potentially lush plant with water, my mind raced towards my vision board.
This plant is a beautiful reminder that sometimes the very thing we ‘think’ we are taking care of gets neglected. We might be juggling so many avenues of life that we forget to focus our energy and love towards what we are attempting to 'nurture' and 'grow' in our lives. We can have boards and rooms decorated with hopes and dreams, but if we don't tend to our visions, they will likely begin dying off. We can own a greenhouse, but if we fail to invest our time and passions into nurturing, we are left with shriveled reminders at our failed attempts.
We are resilient and intuitive beings. Our capacity to dream and manifest is infinite. What areas of your life do you need to tend to? As you begin tapping into the energy of 2016, keep your imagination engaged and your intent focused. You have an exquisite task at hand...grow the possibilities of your heart!
