Your Surroundings Reflect Back to You for a Reason

The world around us is constantly changing, and it is supposed to. Nature and our creative planet always reflect the condition of humanity. Our problems and issues we face are solvable if we always learn to ask questions to solve them. In the same respect, just as a body of water reflects the sky, our atmosphere shows us the conditions of our life as well. We could say life is always a reflection.

When looking at our worldly existence and surroundings, we intuitively see what requires changing in our hearts. Our lives, our love or lack thereof, actions, words, and thoughts all create the surroundings and lives we live.

Yes, heaven and earth will move at our thoughts, and before we know it, we are surrounded by synchronicities made available to us, reflecting the condition of our heart and soul. A soul reflection is meant to help us learn and make changes when we need to. Our lives are all about evolution, obtaining more wisdom, and finding more love within us to heal.

No individual is an island nor sustainable alone. Our lives are also expansive. We are meant to not only heal ourselves but help lead and heal others from the heart to a soul level. We all need others to step into our lives to heal, reflect, and honor one another. Unfortunately, not all of us have learned this, but sooner or later, we all will. It is our divine and human purpose of learning to evolve into a more loving nature.

We learn through our curiosity and inquisitiveness. We are meant to have the mind of a researcher, always seeking and never stopping. Just as a detective investigates a case, we are meant to analyze our lives, our soul’s condition, and our love’s depth. If there is a need for healing, we are meant to seek out that healing. Healing might come directly from our Creator into our intuitive nature, or healing might come from others who have been attracted into our lives through our life’s conditions. If anyone truly desires to become wise, seek God. If anyone truly wants to become healed within the soul, seek God, and meditate on what surrounds us in life. Situations speak volumes, much more personal than a universal encyclopedia.

Here is some advice. Don’t think you have all of the answers because once you believe this, your heart has become too rigid and prideful to continue to grow and heal. When you have healed, then go and heal others. Stay open, or your closed-off convictions will end up convicting you.

What Are You Watering in Life?

It never ceases to amaze me how many lessons I learn from nature. Growing plants, flowers, and trees speak messages into my life every day I attend to them. The keyword is “attend.” Whatever I water grows, unless I overwater things. Some plants need more water than others. Depending on their needs, I adjust what I do for them.

Plants show visible keys as to what they want or need to grow effectively. When they begin to whither, I know they probably need more water than I am giving them. When they die, I have not given them what they need to grow and thrive.

It’s the same with every aspect of our lives. Our physical health will show a decline on the outside when we neglect our body’s needs. Our lives will speak louder than words when we are not attending to life’s garden. We will see a decline in the quality of life when we don’t feed critical areas the attending they need.

When I neglect my spiritual time, my faith withers, my heart becomes like hardened soil, and my happiness scale starts to show a decline. I’ve come to understand it is my responsibility to feed my life in areas that are suffering drought and nurture my own needs when I am feeling void. All processes in life require awareness; this is key. Anything we don’t keep our awareness focused upon will wither and die. To truly thrive in all areas of life, we need to ask ourselves what the most critical thing we must do right now to improve our lives.

Sometimes caring for our internal needs means some time away to reboot our systems. There are times we need to rest and recover from issues that passed through our lives we might have paid way too much attention to. This can drain our system faster than we care to admit. Sometimes we need to take action, or an area of our lives that we depend upon can die. The area can be of body, mind, or spirit. Those areas can also support us, like our job, business, or project we have our hearts set on.

Establishing roots and allowing our foundations to become firm in life’s soil will give us what we desire to maintain. Our outcome depends on the foundation and how much attention we have paid to create a firm one. If we do this in all areas of life we desire to maintain, then the winds and storms will not tear us down.

This, my dears, is the secret to success. We might cry out, squirm, or falter, but getting back into the routine of obtaining that stability and balance we need will calm the seas and allow us to field the storms. We have strength in focus, attention, awareness, and action. Care for all issues in life that are important to you by making sure you attend to things ahead of time before they show signs of neglect and wear.
