Archangel Gabriel: Planting the Garden of Your Soul
A Message for Spring Equinox
Received by Shanta Gabriel
March 8, 2011
Planting the Garden of your Soul inspires the Grace of the Angels to work in your daily life. You will be making clear intentions for the requirements you need to be happy so you can harvest a more bountiful future. The northern hemisphere is experiencing the Spring Equinox, a season of new birth and renewal. If you are in the southern hemisphere, planting your inner garden now will allow you to create a winter focus that will bloom in its proper time.
Equinox is the optimum time to plant a personal garden within your being. This timely action will bring great rewards as you till the soil of your life, elevate your thoughts and enhance the beauty around you on many levels.
What does it mean to plant the Garden of your Soul? It is really very simple. What are the qualities you most want to see manifest in your life? What are your goals and dreams for a joyous future? What needs have to be met so you can be happy? These are the seeds to plant within the garden of your being.
When you plant the seeds of growth and renewal, it can be a fun, creative and positive way to promote a joyous, abundant life. Consider those things you most want to have thriving in your interior garden. Maybe you would like to plant the tiny seeds that lead to Abundant Prosperity? Perhaps you want Harmony in all your relationships? What about planting the seeds for Health and Well Being deeply within your heart so they can grow with zest and vibrancy?
The soil of joyous potential exists within you and awaits your attention.
Are you too busy to plant your Soul’s garden?
These vast exalted ideas actually require very little time during your busy life, full of commitments and deadlines. In fact, the small amounts of time you give to planting and nurturing your interior garden will enhance every area of your life with a bountiful return. It is said that when a person takes one step towards the Divine, this Higher Power will take ten steps toward you.
As you remember that you are a part of all Creation, a new sense of gratitude wells up in your heart, and brings you a sense of connection. This gratitude carries the sparks of Divine Light that uplift your spirit and become the catalyst for new growth within your life. As you look at the flowering of Nature around you, it can remind you that the same beautiful new growth is taking place within your very being.
Let your imagination soar as you bring forth those magical qualities in which you wish to live. Nothing is too large to dream in order to manifest a happier life. Feeling the joy of creating something fun by dreaming big will raise your vibrational frequency and when this occurs the energy field around you expands. Doors will open that you have not imagined possible. It is your open mind, and a heart unencumbered by doubt and self-criticism, that attracts new growth and evolution into your life.
Planting the Garden of your Soul inspires all the help you need to live life in a more joyful way so your needs can be met with grace and ease.
How to plant the Garden your Soul
Since every new project requires some thought and planning, when you begin your inner garden, make it creative and fun. It could be a beautiful work of art with lots of color, magazine pictures or a painting. The shape your interior garden takes could be a pattern that inspires you, like a spiral. You could decide just to make a list of those qualities of consciousness you want to experience in your life. The action of writing will assist the energy of your garden.
The Angels of Creativity are available to work with you in this project, and can inspire you so it will be fun. When your inner spirit is stimulated in this way, new life flows into your mind and heart, and you feel uplifted. This increased energy flow attracts more joy and you feel happier, which in turn, brings more creative ideas and a sense of well-being.
It is the beginning of an upward spiral that blesses this garden within you with new empowered energy. Your life will begin to change in surprising ways.
When you see old patterns of thought and action manifesting, and you begin to feel stuck in problematic energies, consider them to be compost for your new garden. Ask the Angels working in your life to help you pull these weeds and transmute old ways of behavior with Divine Light. This will help feed the garden of your soul with loving energy. It is like adding a little water every day to help work the compost of old ways into the fertile soil of your garden. Soon you will see the new sprouts of a different way of being.
Rejoice in this vibrant growth knowing that as you respond differently to old situations, you will receive fresh, positive results in every area of your life. By focusing a little bit every day on what you want to see manifest in your life, you provide a new structure so your interior garden will thrive.
Bask in the Sunlight of Divine Illumination
The Garden of your Soul has amazing potential to bring you the life you want to experience. Opening yourself to new thoughts and behaviors attracts assistance in ways you never knew existed. This beautiful garden thriving within you becomes a Beacon of Light. Many people will love to experience your inner garden and support you so it will flourish.
This new growth and thriving space within you reaches out to bless the world, and in turn you will be blessed.
As your garden comes into fruition, you will find your life nourished in bountiful ways. The company of Heaven awaits you as you begin planting these seeds for your new life. Bask in the sunlight of Divine Illumination. Breathe it in deeply and let it nurture the new growth within you. Know the Angels will joyously assist you in weeding out the old ways that no longer work so your garden will thrive with new life.
You are never alone. You are continuously blessed and are being guided as you open to a new way of being. Let all the frantic activity in your life drop away as Divinely-inspired action takes root within the garden of your life. The fullness of your being will enrich your life’s purpose, so your next steps become very clear.
There is a flowering beginning all around you, and within your heart. Allow yourself to be loved and nourished as you plant the Garden of your Soul. This process is bringing a beautiful balance into every area of your life.
You are a precious being, worthy of all you aspire to receive. Know deep within your heart that all is well.
And so it is.
