The amazing power of a seed.
There’s potential and promise embedded in a seed.  

November is almost here.  It’s a powerfully symbolic time of year.  Back in the day, this was the month when farmers would harvest all the crops they planted earlier in the year.

They would then celebrate their harvest (Thanksgiving) and store up the surplus to feed their families during the cold winter months until it was time to plant more seed.

It takes me back to the spiritual teaching that you’ve probably heard before.  It goes something like this: There’s a season to sow the seed and there’s a season to reap the harvest.  Well, THIS my beautiful friend, is harvest season…the time of year when you should be collecting some great returns on whatever you sowed earlier this year.

To put it spiritually, this is the time of year when the FAITH you exercised by putting your seed into the ground, reveals itself to you with the harvest that you have been believing for.

For example, did you plant a seed by giving money to a cause, hoping that your seed would move that cause forward or help it grow?  Did you plant a seed by buying a gym membership, hoping that your harvest would be better health? Did you plant a seed of radical faith and prayer hoping for a breakthrough in your marriage?  Did you plant a seed by working hard toward a specific goal?  Did you plant a seed by investing in a course or workshop, hoping to learn a skill that would advance you in your business?

You see nothing happens toward your goals until you plant a seed.  Nothing grows until you plant a seed.  You cannot expect a breakthrough or a large harvest until YOU have released your seed.

  • So, when you look at what has happened for you so far this year, how bountiful is your harvest? 
  • How big is your breakthrough?
  • Are you happy with the outcomes you set out to create this year? 
  • Have you achieved “success” according to what that means to you? If not, why not?
  • Did you achieve your New Year’s resolution? 
  • Can your current harvest sustain you and your family until seed time comes around again? 
  • Did you sow plentifully (lots of seed) or did you doubtfully sow just enough?
  • Did you plant or sow any seed at all toward a particular goal (harvest)?

If you did not answer those questions in the affirmative it’s ok.  There is no judgement here! Let me offer you a few things to think about as we head into another year. Is that okay?

You see, a seed represents two things: potential and promise.  However, until you are willing to release the seed into fertile ground, in faith and in expectation, you will never enjoy the benefits of that potential OR the promise it holds.

Journal or meditate on the following:

First, some spiritual stuff:

- How deep is my faith? 

- Do I trust the process enough to know that the harvest I desire can come forth? Or, am I cultivating seeds of fear and doubt? 

- Who can I generously sow into, as an investment into their future? 

- Who do I need to forgive? 

Practical stuff:

- Do I have the knowledge, wisdom and resources to move my business forward in the next year?

- Do I need to course correct or fix any problems from last year?

- Am I clear about how much money I want to create in the New Year?

- Am I aware of the habits, beliefs and behaviors I have to have in order to create that amount?

- Who or what do I need to let go of to advance in 2016? 

November is the perfect time to do this kind of exercise.  It’s a way to prepare yourself BEFORE seed sowing time comes around again.

Can I recommend something?

Really take some time to reflect on the questions above.  Then, plan to sow your seed with unprecedented faith in 2016. Sow a seed for your family.  Sow a seed for your finances.  Sow a seed for your health.  Sow a seed for your success and your vision.  You can do this through joining a mastermind, working with a coach or some other personal development investment.

Remember, the more seed you sow, the greater your harvest.
