Happy first day of fall!
Harvest time can bring surprises.  It can bring unexpected gifts of graces you may not have imagined.  Along your path the fruits of what you’ve planted in consciousness can bloom in ways you did not “think hard” to create.  Often those gifts are more precious, more magnificent than the “outlining” we do to manifest a good thing in our lives.
I wish you happy harvesting and many sweet surprises along your way!

Permission to Discover a Red Rose

There was a red rose!

There was a rose in the bushes. A perfect red rose! Stuck there on my way home from taking my son to school, a perfect red rose in the bushes. I stopped to see if it was fake. It didn’t belong there. There was no rose bush to go with it. Just the red rose poised perfect and strong in some other kind of non-rose bush.

There was a red rose. Who put it there?

Today I open my heart to the surprises of Life, the signs and symbols of the language of Spirit. It is speaking to me of Love and Life and Joy and rightness of being. I accept the grace of unexpected joy!

I took it home and put it in a vase. I filled it with water. From my garden I cut sweet little pink roses and surrounded the red rose in the vase with the camaraderie and happiness of its little pink cousins. Now it had a home, like me, the perfect red rose. It was all by itself in the wrong kind of bush, now it had a home.

Who put it in that bush? How did it arrive on that bank of bushes for me to find?

It was a wonderful sign. I was home. And so was the rose.

Garden Champion Spotlight – The Hunter-Gatherer

Today I invite you to ponder The Hunter-Gatherer. Dwell on these aspects of the positive masculine archetype and how they can aid the harvesting of your best life.

From the dawn of humanity, the strength, persistence and wit of the hunter gatherers have helped assure the continuation of humanity. Today the search for solutions and the gathering of community is more important than ever.

You can read more about the Hunter-Gatherer and the other feminine and masculine archetypes in the Permission to Bloom virtual garden here.

As we gear up for the full schedules ahead, this month’s post Permission to Put Down the Oars, reminds us of the importance of self-care. It reminds us to pay attention to the signs of “swimming upstream” energetically, and to take time to let the current’s flow move us, in grace.
