Can you imagine what would happen if you planted a row of seeds, and then keep digging them up to see if they are growing? How can the seed keep growing its little roots, and drawing what it needs from the soil, if you keep pulling out to see if it’s growing? Can you see how each time, the seed must start over again, put out new little root hairs, and that at some point it will simply no longer be able to do that? At which point the seed can no longer grow.

You dig up your seed every time you doubt it, fear it won’t happen, interfere by trying to make it happen yourself, or simply fret and worry about it.

Contemplation: In what ways are you digging up your seed of intentional, affirmative thought?

Affirmation: I let go of fear, doubt, and trying to make things happen. I trust the process.
