A garden just beggining to show it's abundance


Food, friends, free stuff, opportunities and money ...harvest them when you can.

Gardening as a metaphor for harvesting abundance

The life cycle of fruits and vegetables is a great metaphor for creating and harvesting abundance in all areas of your life; from your garden, your relationships, your work and your finances.

You plant the seeds, lots of them. Some of them germinate, and some of them grow - all with lots of care, watering and weeding and then you have to remember to harvest as well; if not they rot on the ground and on the bush.

Nature, I believe, always has wonderful metaphors to offer us. This one I love (I think I love it so much because I love to garden) and feel it can apply to so many areas of my life.

In relation to abundance and food, I have a couple of short stories to share that relate to the above metaphor.

Please pick me

When I lived in Canberra, I was part of a community garden. It was a wonderful space to come and garden when I had little garden of my own. I recall one garden in particular that did really well at the planting and nurturing plants. I particularly recall a bumper broccoli crop, however when they were ready to be picked I watched as they sat there, a couple of broccoli head got taken. I took a couple for myself, and then I sadly watched as the rest went to flower, and that was the end of it.

From my own experience, I have found that when harvesting broccoli, as long as I continue to harvest, the broccoli keeps coming. Sure I donít get the big heads more than once, but heaps of broccolini. And as soon as I stopÖyep it goes to flower and thatís it - for that plant anyway.

Apricots for tomorrow

Recently my apricot tree in Melbourne has been ripening extremely quickly, leaving me and my family with more apricots then we can eat on our own. Left on the tree, they fall or get bugs in them. In short they rot. What a waste. Therefore in the spirit of harvesting abundance I have been stewing, drying, gifting and eating so we can enjoy these Apricots now and in the coming months.

Tips for harvesting abundance in your life.

Express gratitude for what you have in your life.

Say thank you when something good comes you way, be it apricots, a gift or an opportunity. By accepting gifts and abundance, and being thankful for it - you'll invite more abundance into your life.

Take the opportunities when they come. Be brave. Waiting can mean loss of a crop, loss of a chance.

When you are unable to harvest the abundance, then go ahead and offer it to someone else. That keeps the flow of abundance going.

Remember to keep planting seeds and nurturing plants, as these are the source of your next bountiful crop.

Happy harvesting.
