Happy Spring! Yeahhhhhhh!!!! We made it through! My daffodils are ready to bloom and the hosta are peeking up–I know I’ve mentioned it enough, but this is truly one of my favorite times of year when it’s like there is new life breathing in everything…I mean look at how many shiny cars are on the road when two weeks ago they were still covered with all that winter crap. Since it is Monday…it’s time for the Flower Fairies card of the week…Fertility! It cracks me up whenever someone pulls this card out, looks at it, and rolls their eyes and hands it back to me. It’s like wait just a second here, what does fertility mean to you? They always have some response of “no more babies”. Well, that assures me that I’m not the only one who thinks about sex, however, that’s not the soul meaning of fertility. This card actually means “The Flower Fairies are expecting! They are letting you know that there is fertile ground awaiting you to plant hopes, dreams, and aspirations! Bring your visions to life and share them with the world. Let them grow!” See? Nothing about sex…unless that’s what seed you’re planting, tehehe!
So the question I have been pondering on this past weekend is what am I planting? Since I woke up Saturday aching like crazy (I taught a really good yoga class on Friday, even if I say so myself) and allergies running rampant (the downside of Spring), I spent most of the weekend on the couch, reading my life away. This morning when I woke up, I realized I hadn’t showered since Friday morning, and since my friend was coming over for a hypnotherapy session…I probably better shower. Ha-when your nose is stuffed, you can’t smell anything anyway lol! So back to my fertile mind time on the couch…I am a great multi-tasker. At this moment, I’m writing this, painting my toenails, responding to my sister’s spastic texts, and doing laundry. I didn’t say I do things well all at once, but it’s all being accomplished. Focus Brooke, focus! I spent a lot of time considering where I’m putting my energy and focus, and where I want to be putting my energy and focus. Some is the same…and some isn’t. How do I move myself forward in some areas and lessen others? As I said, I’m a good multi-tasker, however, it’s not something I want to maintain over a long period of time because it gets…uh, what’s the word I want here? Too much, maybe? As I just told my sister, focus on the positives and let go of the negatives because where you put your mind, your energy flows. So mine is flowing greatly…towards all the things that I want to do…workshops, another oracle deck, spiritual coaching, more writing, a relationship (that includes that other stuff we mentioned with fertility, wink, wink), a new puppy, paying off debt, spending more time doing things that are good for my soul like gardening, being with friends, yoga, art, laughing….Just remember, the ground is fertile awaiting you to plant your hopes, dreams, and aspirations! Plant away and let them grow!
