I was pondering my tomato plant this morning, thinking that perhaps it’s not growing. I’m not seeing any growth from this little guy. And then I remembered that tomato plants (and all plants actually) will first put all of their energy into their root system. They will put down deep roots that help nourish and nurture the growth of the plant that is above the ground….the part that bears fruit for us so that we may nourish and nurture ourselves.
And then it hit me….perhaps, when we are feeling stuck it is a reminder of the Soul that it is time to nourish and nurture our own root system instead of focusing on bearing fruit above the ground. We cannot bear or create fruit unless our roots are firmly planted. Roots come first. And perhaps, if we are not seeing growth in our outer world it is because it is time to work on the root system. Just because we don’t see outer growth doesn’t mean nothing is occurring. It doesn’t mean we are stuck. It simply means that the ‘happenings’ are happening someplace else. Our energy is focused in the wrong place if we are not seeing the growth we are hoping for. Focus your energy back onto your roots…your foundation…your beliefs…your Self. Nurture that part of you which allows you to grow strong and tall…to rise up…in the outer world. Nurture that part where you create from. Nourish and nurture it with Love and joy so that when you do bear fruit it is created from a space of higher vibration and in alignment with your True Self. Our cyclical nature is roots first, then upward growth, then death, then roots again, then upward growth, then death…and the cycle continues.
