Your Soul Ecology – Tools for Your Life Garden, Part I
Gardening season is at hand…. no telling what we’ll be facing this year, given recent years of ups and downs here in New England. Are you prepared for the unknown as the growing season comes into full swing? What is the unique ecology of your garden? What kind of gardener are you? How do you prepare for the inevitable ups and downs of the growing season?
This is Part I of II of how to apply the principles of garden ecology to your soul journey – I like to call it your Soul Ecology. The key is how conscious you are about your ups and downs, whether you notice common patterns and how well you prepare for the inevitable cycles of life so that you can reap an abundant harvest. First step as a gardener? Have a map of the ideal garden for the coming year. (Ah, maybe you don’t have a plan; you are so skilled and experienced you just start tilling and planting! That’s for the advanced life gardener!) For many of us, though, we need to start with some sort of a layout to plan for the garden cycles as the months go by.
So here’s the deal… When it comes to Soul Ecology, it’s all about the proper perspective. You have to start from you’re soul’s perspective. For the past 13 years, I have helped people discover and live their highest potential – their Life Purpose and uncover what is getting in the way of living it – their Life Lesson. Like the vagaries of the seasons and the varying energy and expertise you have to prepare for the harvest, it is important to understand how the cycle of your soul works – Life Purpose and Life Lesson entwined and continually in a cycle. The full spectrum of this cycle includes the Exalted and the Vicious versions.
[In Part II towards the end of May, we’ll look at some real examples of how this works and I’ll invite you to work with me on your Soul Ecology Cycle – the 1st 5 will receive it for FREE! Stay tuned.]
Now onto the business of soul gardening, perspective and reaping the harvest. You want a rich harvest, right? Who wouldn’t love to have the life garden of her dreams? But stuff has happened, stuff happens, stuff will happen and life gets in the way sometimes. Have you every heard yourself saying:
- I was so clueless in my 20’s and 30’s – I wasted a lot of time and I am trying to play catch up
- I’m in my 50’s and still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
- I have spent most of my adult years raising my children (and my husband), I don’t even know who I am
- I’m so ready for a shift. I know there is so much more for me, but I am not sure what that is
What if you became so familiar with the cycle of your Life Purpose and Life Lesson consciousness, that you woke up everyday with the map open and the and your life garden pathways unfolding? Those statements about yourself would fade into memory. You planted some seeds and brought them to full harvest, enough to share with friends and family!!
Starting from this higher plane, looking fully at your soul ecology as it cycles up and down and around, is the essential first step and anchor to design the life garden you came here to harvest. Thanks to my friend and colleague, Ronelle Coburn, who named this cycle the Soul Psychology Cycle, I have a powerful visual tool to use when guiding you from a life that barely produces to one of abundance.
Again, look for PART II before the end of May – real examples of the Cycle, my special offer and more on the power of the right perspective. Happy Gardening.
