Bloom!

Phil and I were working in the yard the other day. Well, he was doing most of the work. Now that we’ve got the new deck in, the yard is a mess. Was a mess. We got the flowerbed cleaned up and some plants removed and some transplanted.

The first day after their transplant, the plants looked a little puny. We had watered them, but they had a bit of shock. By the next day, they were perked up and looking happy with their fresh mulch around them. These little guys will grow and bloom in the fall. It will be fun to watch them grow.

I think our spirit guides think the same things of us!

Sometimes we have to be transplanted from where we are because we cannot breathe in our current situation. We cannot receive sufficient Light when surrounded by certain people/places/or things. Our inner being begs for us to breathe freely, so the Universe sets us up for change.

We can either choose to change for ourselves or resist and allow Spirit to handle it. Often when we drag our feet, the release of the old is more difficult than if we would just decide and shift.

Why do we drag our feet?

Because we don’t know what the unknown looks like or feels like. We don’t like the current situation, but we don’t know if we would like something different either. So, we attempt to stay stuck.

Our soul doesn’t like to be stuck. It likes to move forward. It likes to learn and grow. It cannot help it! Like my little flowers, the soul must grow! It has no option!

Our soul must flower! It has no option other than to bloom and be beautiful. No matter how hard we try to stunt its growth by hanging on to old stuff or hide under the energy of someone else, the soul must shine!

May as well get on board with that process!

Root out the old thought patterns that choke out the spiritual nutrients of life. Shift focus toward the Light. Dig deep into truth. It’s hardest at first, but once the hard work is done, you can sit back and enjoy the growth. You can breathe easy – relax.

There will be new weeds to attend to, but as we mindfully attend to them as they begin to take root, we can keep our spirit clear and nourished. We know the thoughts that keep us in the darkness. We know the patterns of behavior that hold us back. Let’s weed them out! Let’s bloom!

You’ve heard the term ‘bloom where you are planted’ – I say, plant yourself in Spirit’s Presence and bloom happens! In this, may you be richly blessed and be a blessing to others.
