You Harvest What You Plant

October 11, 2013 1 Comment


I started a garden in July, and I am being reminded of so many spiritual truths through nurturing it.  One central theme is:  You harvest what you plant.  It’s such a simple spiritual law that gets talked about frequently (e.g. “You reap what you sow”), but how often do we pause and truly apply that in our own lives?

As I was cleaning today’s harvest, I thought about how essential this spiritual law is.  What I know for sure (unfortunately, the hard way) is that we can’t expect to receive what we are not willing to become in our own lives.  If we want love, we must be love.  If we want peace, we must be peace.  If we want forgiveness, we must extend forgiveness.

What we “plant” in our minds becomes the harvest we reap.  Or, as many spiritual teachers have said:  Thoughts become things.  So, when I say “If we want love, we must be love,” I mean we must think only loving thoughts which, in turn, will lead to only loving words and actions.  The thoughts we have today become the experiences we have tomorrow.  Guard your mind with vigilance, and before you know it you will be surrounded by the most beautiful harvest!

Each loving thought, word, or action brings you one step closer to living more vibrantly in the Light of God.

I just had to share that briefly while it was fresh on my mind.  Here are some photos from the garden.  The top left is from when we started the garden in July, the top right and bottom left is from late August/early September, and the bottom right is today’s harvest.

Affirmation: I plant seeds of Peace, Joy, and Unconditional Love in my mind, knowing they will bear fruit in my life!

About the Author:

I used to live life shackled by fear, doubt, and worry. I put on a happy face while navigating my day-to-day duties, but I was emotionally drained, stressed, and unhappy. When I hit rock bottom, and was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, I was determined to live life differently. I knew there had to be another way. Out of that determination, and guidance from Spirit, the "Living in the Light" blog was born. It documents my spiritual journey out of the darkness and into the Light. After nine months of publicly sharing my journey, and consciously releasing my attachment to the ego, I experienced a powerful spiritual awakening. I went from living in fear, doubt, worry, and stress to complete inner peace. My greatest passion has become assisting others on their own journey to inner peace. My spiritual memoir, From Stress to Peace: An Intimate Journal on the Journey from Living in Darkness to Living in the Light, is available now on Amazon and Click the tabs at the top of the page to learn more about the From Stress to Peace 21-Day Challenge, Living in the Light Retreats, 1:1 sessions, and the Living in the Light Community - all of which are designed to support your journey to inner peace. I appreciate you taking the time to visit the blog and look forward to supporting you in any way I can!
