Nurture yourself

Tending the garden of the heart - Day 103

As we transplanted our broccoli in spring some of them became so droopy before we could get them in the ground, we thought they wouldn't make it. Some of the stems were broken and lifeless. Nevertheless, we put them in the ground to see what would happen. We didn't give up on them, we watered and nurtured them and now, they are the first to grow the broccoli head even before the healthier looking ones.

There may be people in your life who you might have disregarded because they don't act according to the norm - they may have been labelled the misfits and outcasts. But love heals and if you took the time, gave them a chance, and nurtured them, they can see through your eyes that they have worth until they have come to a place in themselves through which they can see their own worth.

What about you? This may not even apply to someone else. Perhaps you see the worth of others but are unable to see the worth in yourself. Change your mind about who you are because you are worthy. The mere fact that you are here, right at this moment, shows that you are worth more than you think. You are a vital part of this great family - the human race. Take the time to nurture yourself, nurture your inner spirit and grow and allow the person you were created to be emerge from within.

How do you nurture yourself?

Love. Love who you are. You may not be at the place that you feel you should be. Take the time to look at yourself in the mirror and say, "I love you." At first it may feel really strange. But keep repeating it over and over every day until your mind stops objecting and agrees with you, "Yes, I love you."

Spend time in quietness and stillness. There is power in silence. As you connect to your Source, your inner entanglements become loosened. It may not happen all at once, just like our broccoli, they did not just stand erect the first day we watered them, but day after day, we consistently cared for them and now they are standing tall and showing signs of bearing fruit. And so will you, if day by day you nurture your heart in the silence of the Spirit and allow the debris of your life to be moved away bit by bit. You begin to feel different and look different. Your life will never be the same.

Open yourself for the warmth of love from the Spirit. Bask in the rays of love and let all your hurt be healed of those issues that have caused you to be bent over in difference and hardened with harshness. Allow the gentleness of the Spirit's embrace soften your heart, break down those walls that you put up to keep the hurt out that are in fact keeping the love out, as well, and melt into true Love.

Learn from the Spirit, your Life Source, how to live; no longer in bondage but in freedom. Learn how to think, learn how to love again, dream again, and truly enjoy living. In you contain the breath of life and the Light Source. Open your life and don't be afraid, for you will shine and shine brightly as this Light illuminates from within your inner being.
