Planting Seeds to create your family
In Spring, we begin planting seeds in our garden and by August we get to watch them grow.
Seeds that grow vegetables to feed our bodies and flowers t0 nourish our souls.
All it takes is a little patience, water, sunshine and love.
Growing up my father always had an amazing garden filled with tomatoes, green beans, kale, lettuce, eggplant and a variety of other wonderful vegetables. There were fruit trees, apples, figs and grapes. Dad would make wine from his own grapes and we would sit under their vines enjoying the summer evenings.
Mother always had rock gardens filled with every flower imaginable, a feast for the senses.
Though my brothers and I are all three very different, we did grow up around all this abundance to share and enjoy. It was one of the manifestations of their love.This is part of what made our household a family.
Families come in all shapes and sizes. Each family has its share of function and disfunction.
Being very different from each other, my brothers and I each experience our own individual adventure. Our adventure have taken each of us on very different path. Our parents are now transitioned and my brothers and I are grown and live very separate lives. Even though we are connected to each other by blood and spiritually, each of us is responsible to create our own individual families.
Getting married and having children did not happen to be in my consciousness, so I had to figure out how to manifest family in my life.
Once you start to embrace who you are as an individual and to love yourself unconditionally, you then begin to draw to your vibration of like minded people.
People of like mind are those that feel about themselves as you feel about yourself. Loving and allowing , being who you desire to be will draw those that mirror you and will love you for just being you. You will start to draw those that are a reflection of you and choose who you desire to invite into your reality.
Being Italian, I was raised to believe that blood is thicker than water. Because we are here for our own individual adventure, that theory does not necessarily work with all families.
Discovering life with your biological family prevents you from being joyful, that might not be the family you are meant to ultimately embrace.
Recognize what makes you feel bad, then focus on what it is that makes you feel good. Surround your family with love so that when you choose to seek your own family, it will be coming from a place of love and not from hurt or anger. Learning is the reason you came into the physical, it raises your consciousness in the now and takes you to a higher place when you move onto your next adventure. For the Universe as well as every living creature around you is your true soul mate, you need not be in search of one.
A partner or a friend that shares all your passions and pain is not a soul mate, but happens to be
on the same level of consciousness as you . When you are consistent in your vibration, you will always attract consistency in others. Allowing joy for yourself, allows others to have their joy and in return they will do the same.
As you know families come in all shapes and packages. Being soul mates to all living creatures allows us to choose the family or families that work best. The trick is to be true to yourself so you can draw to your vibration those that are on the same conscious plan.
The kind of family that you attract will be determined by the degree of love you vibrate.
It can be a family out of romance or of companionship, it depends on how much truth and love is in your consciousness.
After you know what you truly desire, you will start to manifest the quality and type of
relationships that work for you. Like starting a garden, it really does not matter how or why you plant the seed for your family as long as you are true to yourself, patient , loving and allow it to grow.
I am not suggesting that you marry more than one person to create your family. I am suggesting that you allow all the gifts that the Universe has given to you be shared and nurtured to one another. Each person you encounter will teach you what it is that does and does not work for you and you will do the same for them. You can choose who you want to play in your sandbox and learn from others your joy .
There is really no reason not to have a family if you choose to have one. The Universe provides for us an entire world to be our family if we desire to have one. We are never alone if we choose to open our hearts, always trust and fill our cups with love. If there is a desire to have a family a day, you can have it as long as you stay in love, light and happiness.
Plant your intentions with love, trust in the Universe which is Light, and manifest a happy family of your own.
Enjoy your garden and the rest of the summer!
