#44 Garden Medicine – Look beyond fear-based thinking and return to the beauty and nourishment of Mother Earth’s garden. With her help, you can cultivate your ability to plant and grow your dreams that will in turn, support the Common Good.
Is your garden positioned properly to be prosperous? Is there something about it that isn’t right and needs to be tended?
Healing Action: Connect with the personal dream that lives in your heart and nourish it with Love and gratitude. Make sure you’re nourishing your own garden and not someone else’s. Live your dream and protect it.
The Sacred Garden
The gifts of Mother Earth are all around us
if only we have eyes to see.
This garden of life has nourished us throughout the ages
with oxygen, nutrients, sacred medicine,
and the sweet memory of how this planet could be.
The Earth’s beauty and life giving richness
has been stamped upon and pompously disregarded by the ego,
because it is afraid.
Afraid to find out that perhaps it isn’t
really all that important.
That perhaps, we might be just fine
if we all gave up trying to control each other and share instead.
Have you forgotten your own garden –
the one that lives in your heart?
It has always been there, waiting for your return
if only you have eyes to see.

Further Exploration into Garden Medicine:
It’s decision time – time to get off the fence. Your ego is filling you with fear, distractions, confusion and double talk. Even worse, it has you focusing on all your problems instead of your blessings. Release your fear by coming back to the simple wisdom of nature – cause and effect, giving and receiving, activity and rest. Each one naturally includes the other.
You may have turned away from your divinity and allowed your ego to call the shots. It’s time to take back your true nature by reclaiming your true hearts desire.
Did you lose heart when you bought into the egos idea that “the other man’s grass is always greener”?
To find out, gaze at the Circle and ask: “Am I satisfied with what I’ve got?”
If not, why not? Then ask: “Who told me I couldn’t have my true heart’s desire? Who said I wasn’t good enough?”
Perhaps you’re ready to release your agreement with whoever it was that put restrictions on what you can receive. Even better, release your agreement with dissatisfaction itself!
Accept that when things happen within you, they also happen in the world around you. That means when you come from a place of lack internally, you tend to create more lack externally. Stop putting restrictions on what you can receive.
Your personal dream needs care and nourishment. When you appreciate what you have, you cultivate a mindset of true prosperity that can be built upon without greed or avarice.
You are invited to use this Circle to help you visualize your personal garden where you can rest and nurture your dreams. While you’re there, remember the old adage, “…and as you sow, so shall you reap.”
Look at the Circle and ask your heart, “Am I in my own garden? If you aren’t, pull yourself back. If you are, look to see if the landscape could use some tending.
