Things are never entirely as they seem. Due to a human habit of seeing what we expect to see, we often wish for what is right in front of our noses. We simply haven’t trained ourselves to see it. Open your eyes! Your greatest wish is right in front of you—just a hair’s breadth outside of your comfort zone. When you make a wish you are simply calling to you what is trying to make its way to you anyway.

Seeds need the right environment to shed their protective casing so they can sprout, grow and take root. You can’t force growth. Sometimes the environment needs to be adjusted. If seeds are not sprouting, take it as a sign that more nourishment is needed, the season is wrong or the climate too harsh. Nourish your seeds with love and care. When the time is right get ready to blossom.
