Every Plant has a Purpose

If we had the knowledge of all the weeds around us and how we can best use them, we may not waste another plant. In the world of Permaculture we eat them, give them back to the earth, make a tea, put them in a vase, feed them to the animals, find out the characteristics of a space, moisture, sun and soil quality too. It’s amazing, you’ll find that every plant indeed does have a purpose.

Just as every plant has a purpose so too does every person. This is where mainstream society may have failed us. In the past and maybe today still if you didn’t thrive in the school system, you didn’t achieve good marks, you were seen as some what useless and your value seemed meaningless. There was no way to measure on paper your childhood fantasy stories that could engulf a group of fellow children down your rabbit hole, there was no value in wearing second hand, you may have been seen as peasant-like not an ethical icon as the title you were more deserving of, your uniqueness is not meant to be a curse, it was something we would like to know for the greater good, the benefit of the world.

The world is changing at a fast pace and our children’s knowledge will lead us in the right way. I remember moments in my life where nothing really made much sense the way things are done, how things are made, how long a product lives and where it goes to degrade made no sense, other than a quick thoughtless money making scheme an economy that needs injections and a high rate of infection and disease. Food without flavour. Food without nutrients. Soil degradation. Imitations. Not living within limitations. Someone changed and led a movement, of soil improvement nutrient rich clever pitch, seasonal produce not favouring limited veggies in production but seeing what works well at your place.

It is also worth saying that society in general has not valued unique skills abilities and interests, instead in some ways rats that can contribute to economic growth. If you look after children you may fall into this category too, it doesn’t have a dollar value so it’s worthless but in reality it’s completely contrary. The children today are tomorrows leaders and too many issues in childhood affect a person’s potential to live the life the love. 

As I write this I am thinking the more we do what we love and value the more beauty will be present in the world. You are here for a reason and some time in the near future money may lose value your community may gain value from the uniqueness you bring to it. It has be research that Happiness has nothing to do with money anyway. Your success may have a different definition to someone else’s. Your values may be different to someone elses, but keep in mind Every plant has a purpose.

Cultivate Your Garden

A number of years ago we read a book written by Voltaire titled Candide originally written in 1759, that follows a journey of Candide who goes on his heroes journey and wisely comes to the conclusion that the best thing anyone can do is to ‘Cultivate your garden’ this wisdom stuck with me.

 

For sure it resonated. Candide experiences horrifying episodes of political oppression and religious intolerance on his journey across Europe and Asia. I don’t like to focus on these things because they are improving my they still exist, but he comes to the conclusion it is better for him to mind his own business, settle down and grow things in his garden and trade with his neighbours.

I love anything you can say that has a metaphorical and a literal meaning at the same time. To me cultivate your garden means tend to yourself, your thoughts, your mind, your body, your soul and that will no doubt have as much value as trying to go out and change others.

The human brain is an amazing tool to help us in life, our thoughts have the potential to make or break us. I have spent the last few years doing self-study and going deeper and deeper into metaphysics and how our thoughts create our reality from various teachers. Louise Hay’s work also teaches to planting mental seeds to help us to grow.

In the literal sense cultivate your garden is good advice in these times of change, I have always been a fan of growing my own food and think there is nothing better for our planets health and peoples health than eating locally grown food. I will work on my permaculture skills and eating straight from the garden.

 

This year [2019] was a great experiment in manifestation using the power of thoughts, vibration and feeling to bring about my desires in my reality. I still look around and see where people are blind to their power in changing their life and think if they ask I can tell them but if I tell them it is high likely they will not listen. As we come into 2020, I will continue to improve my mental powers to improve my life and have a constant high vibration and see what manifests.

What about you?

Embrace your feminine

Everyone – Males and Females have a feminine side, it’s receptive and nurturing qualities make receiving easy, Where as the masculine energy is go-getting. Both have great value in our lives but if we are constantly in our masculine striving to get, always in action, running on high energy we can become disconnected from our intuition.

Feminine energy is intuitive because as Eckhart Tolle says ‘stillness speaks‘, we can receive our best intuitive insights and messages when we are in this energy of receiving. Feminine energy is abundant and giving just like mother Earth who gives us all a place to live and love.

Simply put Mother Earth nurtures and heals us all, if we are open up to receiving.

 

I watched a documentary a year or so ago titled The Grounded, which details the mind blowing simple benefits of grounding or earthing ourselves.

The most memorable and emotional connection this movie gave me was a scene detailing the life of school kids in the US. The children woke up early, before they left their rooms had but their shoes on for football training, on a constructed playing surface, they would then change shoes to go to school for 8 or so hours and when they got home that afternoon go straight to their room to study. Therefore the whole 24 hours of a typical day for a school kid they didn’t make a connection to the earth. It doesn’t seem like that big of a deal but when each day ends up like this, day after day it causes a number of problems with low concentration, behavioural problems, joint pain among other things as a result of the constant disconnect they have with the earth due to wearing shoes all day everyday.

The saddest thing for me is that kids don’t get a choice, they have to do these things, they aren’t allowed to not wear shoes, they have to go to school and this has a ripple on effect into adulthood. Thank-you to the kind souls who have created nature play, so kids are encouraged to play outdoors in unstructured play environments.

As you read this can you remember the last time you put your bare feet in nature? maybe it’s a good time to re-child yourself…

It’s such a simple action – Earth yourself daily and feel good, reconnect to Gaia.

When we grow we change and everything around us changes too. This can be like a two steps forward one back. Two steps into the light and one step through the shadow.

Awareness is great to see how we feel, we used to be in environments and love them and now we feel differently. We have grown and this is how it feels.

We are looking for something deeper and more authentic not so surface level, maybe on the surface level we can see who is confident in their skin and who isn’t.

We can see our insecurities. in others and we can have compassion or we can just gravitate away.

If we look back a few years and realise you loved nothing more than something covered in melted cheese anything with cheese on it, I would love to eat. I don’t  feel the same these days I’m gradually liking healthier whole foods, Scenes based around alcohol don’t interest me.

It’s interesting. When we have been living in a bubble of our own – yoga, mediation, tea and coffee alternatives and kombucha and go to a new place or interact with someone who is not yet off of junk food who has never heard of kombucha and has no idea what it is becomes a nice reality check.

We are all unique individuals following our own path and some aren’t aware yet.

This happens to me a lot about plastic pollution, I feel like EVERYBODY knows that innocent animals are suffering because of single use plastic pollution and they can easily avoid it, but I still see it. Change is a process, I guess. I’m not perfect.

As above, so below. I still can improve and maybe that’s why I see these things.

Step by Step

Lately I have been working on being more grounded, meaning I have a job I enjoy, that pays me well every week, still gives me leisure time and time to work on myself.

I believe we create our reality and our choice to believe in a more positive, enjoyable or just progressive life makes us one step closer to this reality. The second being our actions.

So when an idea is planted it is just a seed but that seed does something, it grows. It’s a natural growth but it takes a bit of effort a bit of concentrated life force. Action!

More important than anything as I mentioned before is BELIEF. I met a german lady, a pretty spiritual lady, connected to earth and plants particularly. She would garden naked, talk to her seedlings and sing to them, nurturing them so they grew to provide for us. Who shared some wisdom with me “the most important thing in life is our believings”

Next thing to focus on was transcendence. I’m not exactly sure why. Maybe it was to not take life to seriously or maybe it was in terms of manifestion. In order to manifest we transend the third dimension.

Which is how we make GROWTH! How we plant seeds and how they grow. Sometimes life just happens but if you want to consciously create a better world – take action and believe in your ideas no matter how out there they seem and GROW!

reading this back it is such good advice for myself but I’ll share it anyway, maybe someone else will benefit. We’re all in this together.

I am grounded and growing

“I am grounded in the physical plane”

“I am grounded in the physical plane”

“I am grounded in the physical plane”

As 2018 was well known to be the year of mass awakenings and now it’s 2019, I’m going to make my mantra for the year a step up from the 2018 one above to “I’m grounded and growing”.

I know we’re not alone and I have personal experiences of paranormal activity and a wider perspective than your average ‘normie’.

Intuitives have told me I need to ground myself, and to be honest I’m quite confused of what that means. I visualise roots going into the ground below me as if I am a plant, I’ve been connected to the ground through earthing, I have said “Good morning grandfather sun”, I’ve listened to all sorts of advice, I’ve tried to just get a job and be as normal as possible, but I found it difficult when you are having an upgrade to function if you know what I mean. It seems my sensitivity is increasing and I’m guided to read certain books.

I would identify myself as a starseed and I thought it was only a recent thing but when I look back at my drawings they were featuring light beams and Egyptian themes long before I had awareness of energy and empathic abilities. I think back to people calling me ‘spacey’ and now it’s making sense to me. People have said ‘you’re here to show them how to love’.

But if it is all true that star seeds are like volunteers that have come to earth to help it to ascend. We still need to make changes in the physical plane even if we are from a different planets originally we are all earthlings now.

People on earth come from 163 different galactic races and the goal is to be united, in the physical to live in peace together, each race is different and maybe we are all just one big experiment but it would be beneficial for everyone to work together in a respectful way to move into the 5th dimension.

So it’s helpful in some way to drop the starseed label and just connect as humans. Naturally we will gravitate towards those on a similar vibration.

We all have a purpose here and maybe it’s as simple as doing what brings YOU joy.
