Some of you may remember that a few months ago I had a stroke. Whilst it was serious, I was fortunate that I was not too debilitated and was told by my medical team that within the year I would be feeling like my old self once more. All seemed to be on track when my energy, which I had been struggling with since the Stroke, began to decline to a point where I could not sustain more than twenty minutes effort without having to lie down. This was naturally a worry and my mind kicked into gear, presenting me with all kinds of scenarios. Fortunately for me, a simple blood test revealed that my body was lacking in Iron and Vitamin D and that all would be remedied once these missing elements were restored. In the interim I was picturing a very different future for myself but once this misinformation was corrected, my whole body began to behave differently. It is important to be reminded from time to time that negativity brings your immune system down and that despite the circumstances that are being presented to you in the moment, we definitely have solutions at our fingertips.
Many years ago I created a retail business where I announced that we were "Purveyors of Excellence". This was based on my love of all things of things fine and of good quality. Those simple words emblazoned on the window of our storefront were like a magnet for those who had similar aspirations to my own, and I met such interesting people during the course of my years in that business. We all have the ability to draw deeply within ourselves and produce our very best but sometimes either circumstances or lack of time prevents us from giving it. Spirit urges us to always lift ourselves up to give of our best but it can take discipline to do so.
One of the reasons why I like to garden is that every day the Creator presents me with examples of abundance, reminding me that life is full of every that we need, if only we can tune in. Whether it be through your thoughts or your appreciation of the blessings you already have, once you get into that vibration of abundance, you will begin to see and experience it everywhere.
