“What are you ready to bury?” she (my life/biz coach) asked me, explaining that what you intentionally bury becomes the nourishment for what grows.
Bury doesn’t have to mean hide.
Bury can be life-affirming.
Bury can remove the crud and turn it to creation (think compost).
So I went to my (regular) journal and sloshed out a list of everything I wanted to bury… and what that would grow.
It felt a.maz.ing. Cathartic. Enlivening.
So I grabbed my markers and moved on to my spiritual journal (yes, I have different journals for different reasons. It’s an energy thing). I needed to SEE those things buried, SEE those things growing.
This is what came out:
And then I noticed… if you turn this upside down, and you bury the purple-worded half of the tree, you then grow the opposite.
This bury/grow cycle is all tied together, no matter what perspective you choose. So why not choose the one that grows the stuff that we WANT and that will feed us and those around us?
What are you ready to bury? And what will it grow??
