Our Hidden Dream Sprouts

As I've been studying the process of making dreams come true in my MondoBeyondo class, we've talked about allowing tiny sprouts of things to grow without pushing our efforts upon them. We have written down dream ideas, put the list away and now we're letting them germinate for a bit.

A few weeks ago while prepping the soil in my patio garden for the new season I unearthed two tiny white sprouts deep in one of the soil-filled pots resting since the last growing season. I didn't think they would grow, but wanted to try to save them if I could. I tenderly replanted them in a tiny pot and watered them. After a few days it did not look as if they would make it. I let them be. The rains came and continued to water them. This week I went out to see that there are now plants growing. These mystery sprouts look to be one of my favorite flowers, sweet peas.

Now I have to tell you that I have tried to grow sweet peas many times on my balcony and for some reason had no success whatsoever. These sprouts must have come from seeds I planted a l-o-n-g time ago. But they are here now and they are growing and with a little luck will bring some beautifully scented blooms later this Spring.

You just never know what little dream seeds may be resting somewhere in your life, ready to take sprout when the time is right. All they ask of you is a little tender loving care and to see the light of day - to be acknowledged by you. They will take care of the rest. And things you never expected could happen -- will happen in your life. Exciting, right? Start looking for your sprouts. They are there.

This is so lovely - and a beautiful analogy! Of course, my first thought was "well, of course Kalani can resurrect dead plants." Some people have that magic touch!
