Harvest

Find a place you will not be disturbed for while. Make yourself comfortable.


Ground and center yourself. Let fear and tension go with the outbreath.  Bring in fresh energy on the inbreath.  Continue this for awhile.


Visualize a large flower, rather like a sunflower.  See it go through its life cycle once in your mind. Growing, blooming, then decaying.


Now see the flower at full bloom. Slowly the outside layer of petals begins to shrivel, then falls off.  Then the next layer does the same, then the next, layer upon layer.  Watch the spent blooms release.


To quote a children's book I once read,  "Everything changes, nothing stays the same."  And this is the order, the way things are.  Sometimes it is a relief, a clearing, to let go.


Keep breathing, releasing the many things, people and attitudes you have had to let go of in your life, on your path of growth.

Breathe.  Finally there is nothing left on the old stalk but the seeds.


Cup your hands. Shake a few seeds into your palms.


Place these seeds in your aura for awhile, perhaps in your heart chakra.  Let them rest, become more potent. Think about them.


When it is time ( you will know ) reach for them and plant them, these seeds of hope.


Plant hopes for the world, hopes for your own life, hope for the future.  Make the soil ( the field of energy ) rich with love and joy and wonder each time you plant a seed.


May your seeds, sprout, grow and flower, magically bringing healing where it is most needed in this world.  Namaste- Lia
