Many, many years ago, I started recording my dreams for insights to guide my spiritual journey. The dream below had significant impact.*
The Divine Garden Dream
I had been searching for the Divine Mother for a long time and I was now going to meet Her. I discovered She lived in that big white house at the top of the grassy knoll. I walked up to the house, onto the porch, and knocked at the door. I stood waiting, but She didn’t answer. I tried again and still no one came to the door. As I turned to leave, I realized She might be in Her back yard so I decided to check. When I rounded the back of the house, I stood still in awe. Before me was the most beautiful garden imaginable! Magnificent flowers and shrubs were carefully tended and designed in combinations that were breathtaking. Clearly, She was a Master Gardener to create this sanctuary of beauty and wonder.
Then I saw in the far corner of the property a most unique and exquisite plant growing all by itself. Nothing else was planted in the area. I wondered why She would leave the whole corner completely barren with just a single plant all alone. How sad, I thought. I turned away perplexed, then suddenly understood.
This stunning plant is a perennial! She purposely left space for this plant to fill this corner of Her yard, propagating year after year. This flowering plant was chosen and placed with great care and intention, to fit in perfect harmony with the divine design.
This dream carried a powerful message! We each have our own corner of the world. We too will fill it year after year with the beauty and wonder of who we are, how we live, and who’s lives we touch. We are where we are for a reason, lovingly placed here to fill this space with the exquisite expression of our true self, our heartfelt love, and our unique perspective. We are each here to bloom where we are planted!
Questions for Circle Discussion:
If we are planted right where we are needed, then blooming to our fullness is our best gift, a co-creative effort with the Master Gardener.
- When have you felt as if you were standing in a barren place, alone and feeling different than those around you? What “flowered” in you in response?
- If you were chosen to be in this corner of the world at this time, what are you “propagating” in this space that fills the area with exactly what the Master Gardener intended?
- If you could be any plant in the landscape of this Divine Garden, what plant would you be and why?
