#561 Constantly Weed Your Inner Garden

Dear Jeanne,
Do you have a message of guidance for us today?

Energetically speaking, pay attention to what is happening inside you as you go about your day. Pay attention to your reactions, judgments, feelings, emotions, and the physical manifestations of the issues that own you. Allow that which transpires outside of you to lead you constantly back into the self, requesting contemplation of the self, by the self, and for the self.

This is a good time to gain clarity on your own issues still unresolved, those that crop up over and over again, like weeds in the garden. Constant weeding of your garden will produce a beautiful result. Learn how the weeds creep in and attack the vital plants that you have tended so carefully, seeking sustenance that does not belong to them.

I use the metaphor of a garden today because each of you is fertile ground upon which beauty and sustenance may flourish if properly nurtured and cared for. Your gardens do grow best when well tended. Liken the self to whatever type of garden you most often visualize. Perhaps you are a flower garden, an herb garden, a vegetable garden, or an exotic sculpture garden, or the simplest of paths upon the ground.

Perhaps your garden self requires much attention and nurturance or perhaps your garden is, at this time in your life, well prepared and self-sustaining. No matter what type of garden self you are, or attain to be, so must you always pay attention to the needs of the garden self, for nothing but weeds may grow if left unattended.

Pay attention today to your garden. Ascertain what is most necessary to accomplish in order to keep a flourishing and bountiful self. Determine what nourishment and care are necessary, as you reflect upon this garden self that is mirrored by the outer world, as you pay attention to the busyness of the world in relationship to your inner work.

It is a time of inner work, a time of cultivation, assessment, self-study, and contemplation. Only in deeper connection to the self will you discover what gardening methods are best for the self and what fertilizer is required for continual growth. Even when the growing season wanes, a garden must be tended and prepared for constant inner work, for even in dormancy the garden still lives. Pay attention to this garden self as the outer energy continues to reveal and guide, as it continues to point out the issues of the self and the challenges that must be attended to as you continually nurture and grow.
