Soul Gardening: Right Now

If you want an apple tree, plant an apple seed.

If you want an oak tree, plant an oak seed.

If you want a dogwood tree, plant a dogwood seed.

If you want love in your relationships, plant love seeds.

If you want ease and calm, plant seeds of ease and calm.

If you want enjoyment, plant fun seeds.

If you want fulfillment, plant fulfilling seeds.

Our future - every single moment of it - emerges from this moment. What are you planting?

Here. Right now. Exactly where you are. What are you committed to growing in your life?

Plant seeds now.

In my work as a life coach, I help people clear from their minds, hearts, and actions the clutter of weeds, debris, and detritus that’s built up over the years:

  • Limiting stories and judgments about ourselves and others.

  • Default ways of thinking and being that hold us back and dishonor our core values.

  • Decisions and problem-solving processes that much younger versions of ourselves put together that we still allow to run the show.

In other words, my work with people is soul gardening. We get in touch with what we really want to grow in our lives, then we clear out the mental, emotional, and spiritual space necessary to grow it.

Then, we get to work planting seeds.

Seeds of passion, ease, and enjoyment. Seeds of love, calm, and generosity. Seeds of compassion, connection, and creativity.

What are you committed to growing in your life? What kinds of seeds must you plant to grow it?

Whether we intend to or not, we've been planting a forest our whole lives. How different might this forest be if we got intentional about the seeds we're planting?

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is Right Now.

P.S. As a transformational coach, I help people move beyond their self-imposed limitations to live their best lives and feel amazing. If you’re interested in finding out how I can support you, reach out and let’s talk. 💌
