If this planter was a sacred container for heart whispers and dream tending, what would you choose to grow? (please answer in the comment section – I would really love to know!)
I *love* this photo because it is overflowing with symbolism and energy!
Let’s look first at the colors: green heart chakra energy (lots of love) and earthy brown root chakra colors (an invitation to connect with and center into inner core energy).
We see a container full of energy and nutrients that support growth. Perhaps this is like a sacred container: a space full of enlivening energy, where our hearts feel comfortable exploring and sharing connection and creative expression.
When we center into our energy and open with love, what are we able to create? Anything. Everything.
When we honor our boundaries and our roots are strong, what barrier is there to sharing? None.What is there to fear? Nothing.
I invite you to breathe that in.
We can look at this container with the freshly tilled soil and know that something will grow here. Because we don’t know what exactly will grow, we can imagine infinite possibilities – beautiful blossoms, fresh herbs, vegetables – *anything* is possible.
We can thank the gardener for their presence to these details – for preparing the container and the soil and planting the seeds.
Presence to Organic Growth: An Energetic Blessing
An energetic blessing that I use throughout each day (after each experience) is:
May you bless the seeds I have planted that are resonant with love, peace, possibility and abundance. May they root, sprout, grow and blossom in ways far beyond that which I can imagine or ask for. Thank you for this experience.
Then I continue moving forward. Knowing that the energy I chose to share “mattered”, allows me the freedom and joy of being fully vested in the next experience.
Garden of Magic
In the garden of magic
Luminous butterflies flit
Away their charms
Flowers open to the love of light
Soul scents find their way to your nosetip
Slipping sweetly into your heart
Softening, opening, loving, nurturing,
Grounding you into infinite possibility.
Tend the soil with the hands of your soul
Enchant the seeds within
Invite them to rise from their ancient slumber
To carve out a new home in this new breath
Quietly you drift and softly you fall
Into the fairy arms of ephemeral dreams
When you wake you shall see
The seeds of your uncertainty and turmoil
Germinating into possibility, unfolding and blossoming
into the True Reality of your Dreams.
How deeply and dearly you are loved
The most precious gift of the Universe
Placed, with delicate purpose, into your heart.
Thank you, Maryse and Lynn, for allowing me to share your creative expressions here, in this space!
Maryse is a current participant in I Believe in Magic: 30-day Photo Journey. While there are many beautiful photos presented in the class, Maryse’s photo was one of my favorites because it feels to me like the essence of ‘magic’: we plant seeds of love then we open, with ease and joy, as the energy is returned ten-fold in ways that enliven and delight.
Lynn is a current participant in the Facets Energetic Intention Circle Facebook forum. When Lynn chose to share her poem with us, Maryse (who participates in the forum as well) added her photo to the discussion thread. Seeing the photo with the poem was so powerful, as I hope you have felt here.
Dear Reader: As you consider the idea of magic gardens and sacred containers for heart whispers and dream tending what would you choose to grow? (when you share, you inspire!)
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: What we place our attention upon grows.
Please note that the new session of I Believe in Magic begins Sunday, June 1st and the Facets energetic intention circle opens June 1st as well. Registration is open now for both offerings; for more information, please click the links.
