If you are someone who is a spiritual being trying to reach spiritual awareness, you can learn a great deal about spirituality from your backyard garden.
Gardening Helps You Exercise Positive Affirmation
Whenever you plant new seeds, there is no surety that the plants will grow and flourish. So, what should you be thinking while planting new seeds? Pot two different plants, while planting one of them, create doubts in your mind if the plant will flourish or what if it dies whereas when you plant the other one, send positive affirmations such as this plant is going to bear beautiful flowers and grow healthy. Practice this every day while you take care of it. You will notice, the plant which you give positive affirmations is the one which flourishes more.
This teaches you to apply positive affirmations in your everyday life in whatever you do. If you start a task with the thought that you cannot do it, you will mostly fail. If the thought that you will succeed resonates in your mind, the universe will get hold of that thought and deliver similar results, and that’s how ‘The Law of Attraction Works’.
Gardening Teaches you Vibration Exchange
Many spiritual organizations grow their own vegetables and fruits because they strongly believe that the vibration with which the crops are grown enters our body. The best part of gardening is you can grow your own vegetables and fruits. When you nurture your new plants by watering them, weeding out around them, and protecting them from critters by using Critter Fencing; apart from physical nourishment, nourish them with positive vibration. In time, you will feel the positive vibrations resonating to you from the plants as well. Your plants will grow healthier and will bear vegetables and fruits grown in a positive environment. When you use these organically grown produces for preparing your meals, you will notice that you feel healthier and happier. This is the power of positive vibration and this works not only on plants but every human being on the plant.
Gardening Helps You Understand ‘The Law of Karma
The Law of Karma is based on the causes and its effects. Gardening can help you understand this law in a much deeper sense. Imagine you forget to water your plants for a few days and do not remove the weeds around them then will your plants flourish? No, because you have neglected your duty and now you will have to accept the outcome.
Similarly, if you nourish your soul by feeding it with positive thoughts and weeding out or removing thoughts which are negative then your soul will flourish.
Gardening Helps you to Detach
Gardening will keep you busy when you perform the tasks of watering the plants, weeding off the garden or pruning. This will keep your mind engaged and in the present that will help you detach from the outer world and just dig deep within your inner soul.
Garden is Your own Zen
A garden is a pure place full of fresh air and positive thoughts. Greenery and the colors from the flowers just light up our minds, especially when you are aware that this garden is a result of your Karma. Sitting peacefully in the garden and meditating every day will help you connect with your inner spirituality.
