The Law of Planting Seeds

It’s a fact – a law- a universal law – part of the laws of attraction that what you sow – the seeds you plant so to speak – you shall reap.

I have been living on a farm for nearly 3 decades and when my family and I together with my parents, my sisters and their husbands and their children moved to the ‘middle of no-where’ as it was aptly named, began to learn about the law of the land.

My father having been born and raised in the countryside of southern Italy and having been exposed to a life of having no choice but to learn how to live off the land, found that cultivating the land was second nature to him.

I never really paid a great deal of attention to what my father was doing, or so it seemed, however what I did learn and grasp over the years that  there was a specific time we planted seeds and the care and work that was needed to ensure a good harvest.

There is a great deal of work that goes into nurturing the freshly planted seeds, from keeping them safe from the frost, extreme heat, particularly weeding out the weeds that cropped up out of the ground that could affect the crop. 

I developed a sense of love and almost reverence for the earth and what it brings forth. I learned that the better we cared for the seedlings upon planting them, the better the results at harvest time.   And what I became most grateful for was how very blessed I was to learn this process.  For this was a process that taught me lessons beyond other than where our fresh produce comes from.

Observing this action, it became apparent to me that this is what life is about as well.  Whatever we plant in our minds must grow.  So what kind of thoughts are we planting in our minds?  What kind of seeds are we planting?  And do we tend to this on a daily basis, being ever so careful to ensure that we nurture them carefully, ensuring we eliminate the weeds that crop up in between?

Raymond Holliwell in his book Working With The Law mentions that ” whatever we think in our mind must grow.”

So then whatever we are putting our minds upon – that which we give attention to -the thoughts we nurture ,we keep alive and help it to grow for this is the law!

If you can grasp this then it’s easy to understand why it’s important to choose your thoughts carefully.  For the thoughts we continue to hold long enough for manifest as our reality, if not immediately some where down the track, be it a week or two, a month or two or a year or two! 

Begin to organise your thinking so that you only entertain thoughts that are harmonious and constructive and yield you good results.  This is a universal law –  The Law Of Attraction!

Current thoughts create your future

 In James Allen’s book As a Man Thinketh, he refers to the effect of thought on circumstances as such:

” A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth.  If no useful weeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.”

If we are seeking to change anything in our lives, be it in our finances, health or relationships, we need to firstly comprehend the underlying principle that led us to our current set of circumstances. 

So then, the underlying principle is that  “thoughts have a frequency” and “what we think about we bring about”.  We manifest in our lives the circumstances and situations that reflect our thoughts or what goes on in our head!

Our current circumstances are a direct result of our past thoughts.  We attract that which we secretly harbour or hold in our minds.  Be it our worst fear – that which we don’t want to happen or what we love. Circumstances grow from this!

Our outer world shapes itself according to our inner thoughts.  Before we change change or improve our circumstances, we need to be willing to improve ourselves. 

We begin this by:

1.  Stop looking outside of ourselves for the cause of our circumstances.

2.  Look for the underlying law that regulates our life.

3.  Accept that whatever our conditions, they are brought about by ourselves and not by someone else.

4.  Become aware of our thoughts.  Reprogram our mind by controlling our thoughts via meditation.

Feeling Good and the Law of Attraction

One of the most powerful yet plain and simple books I have read to date on the Law of Attraction and how to manifest ones desires has to be Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks ( The Teachings of Abraham).

The Law of Attraction says:  That which is like unto itself is drawn.  In other words ‘ like attract like’.  Throughout this inspiring book it often gives reference to aligning to a vibrational frequency and when you do, this in turn begins to bring to you what you desire. 

A practical illustration of radio frequencies is used int the book to help understand what is termed as ‘aligning to a vibrational frequency’.  When you turn on the radio to a particular radio station on the FM band you would expect that what you would receive is that particular station you have tuned into right?  So you would not be expecting a station that is on another frequency right? 

Hence when working towards attracting into your life what you desire, you need to ‘tune into’ so to speak to the vibrational frequency that your desires are on.  Brilliant!

And so how do you do this?

Put your attention on what you desire and as you think about it more and more and more, as you FEEL it as something that is already on it’s way to you, as you emit this vibration, then the Law of Attraction will have no other option than to match your vibration and deliver to you in ways unimaginable to you what it is you desire!

The key then is to imagine having it.  By doing this you raise your vibrational frequency to match what it is you are asking for or desiring.  Think about it, when you have felt less than wonderful, full of doubt and uncertainty have you ever attracted what you wanted? 

The answer is usually NO. 

The way you FEEL is integral in attracting what you desire.  When you are feeling good, you raise your vibrational frequency.  When your vibrational frequency is maintained long enough at that level by way of holding thoughts doubt the things that make you FEEL good, what you desire is attracted to you.  It is Law!

So it is a matter of raising your energy, vibration, frequency and then maintaining it for longer and longer periods.  There are some who can do this without a great deal of effort and these are the people we notice have everything they want in their lives and it appears that what they want simply come to them without any effort.  This is the Law of Attraction.

This Law works without exception. 

You always get what you think about whether you are consciously aware of it or not.  So then the same goes for putting your attention on what it is you lack.  So if for example you put your attention on a better paying job, a better home, a new car, a better relationship and you also resent or don’t like the current job, partner, car, or home you live in, the Law of Attraction will bring you more of the same. 

The Law of Attraction matches the feelings that you emit when you think about what you don’t like or don’t have or lack in your life.  For when you ponder on what you have and don’t want more of,   the signal that comes back at you is more of what you don’t want.

By understanding this underlying principle that we emit a vibrational frequency each time we think particular thoughts, we begin to fully comprehend how possible and easily we can deliberately create our reality and draw to us absolutely anything we want!!

This Law is inexplicably clear and simple.
