What does HOPE, TRUST and BELIEF mean to you? Are they just descriptive words that have some substance for you but not a lot depth.

Let's see if I can change your perspective as words hold so much energy as do all things in life!

Words, thoughts, feelings, belief, actions all impact upon our lives greatly and in everything around us.

How we see ourselves and the people that are close to us - who we permit to come into our space and interact with us in our every day experiences.

In reality, our friends may come and go, however it is those like hearted individuals who remain with us on our own life journeys as they travel their own roads alongside of us that can bring so much depth and purpose to our experiences and something that we need to not take for granted.

In essence, To everything there is a season and to every experience there is a reason.

Nothing is set in concrete, reality is from our perception of what is, and nothing in life is by chance and thinking along the lines of co-incidence is a good enough reason to take the power out of any situation!

Now let's get to these particular words.

I'd like to take the 'woo woo' out of what people may perceive here and give a more grounded imagery in order to make a little more down to earth sense.

So with this in mind, let's look at life and our creations like a packet of seeds (or bulbs)!

If we imagine that we are wanting to create, or better yet, grow something that will either feed us or give us a sense of pleasure, then let's take this exercise as our creation of something to give our senses pleasure and that is in the form of a Paint Brush Lily.

Now Paint Brush Lilies are grown from bulbs, so let's say that we purchase the packet of bulbs with the BELIEF (understanding) that what we are indeed making a selection of Lily bulbs and moving towards the next step which is to make the decision of where we are going to plant these bulbs.

So if we are to give our bulbs the best opportunity to not only survive but thrive, we read the instructions from those who know best of what is required for the greatest success for the growth of our lilies once they are planted.

Getting the gist yet of what the creative purposes are about?

No Woo Woo here - just pure 'common' sense of following instruction, whether it is from the expertise of a teacher, a mentor or a gardener.

And so our packet instructions tell us position - sunlight or shade; season - winter, spring, summer or autumn; the type of soil and what depth is required to nurture these beginnings;

and what to feed.

So we will BELIEVE that we have read all of the necessary instructions in order to give our creation the best start to LIFE!

This is very important in most encounters in life - for the greatest outcome and success of any creation, we need to give great attention to the very steps that are taken!

We need to not only look but also see; to not only listen but to also hear; and to not only think of taking action but to actively follow through.

After planting our bulbs, we then go through the routine processes that our creation requires. We ensure that our lily is in the right kind of soil (the goal, desire, dream) and we position it in just the right amount of sunlight (wisdom, attention, mindfulness, positivity) TRUSTING that all that we have read in the instruction is exactly what our beautiful creation needs to grow. We ensure that we water it in the quantity that it requires and give it the right amount of attention.

TAKE NOTE - a mistake that we often make due to the fact that we don't quite have the FAITH that what we are creating is actually going to grow; we will dig up our bulb (or seed) to see if it is actually growing! Do that enough times and you can guarantee that it will die!

And the most exciting part of this journey is actually seeing our lily poking its head through the soil and becoming what it is meant to be - the most beautiful Paint Brush Lily!

The fact is that Lily knows exactly what it is and how it is meant to grow and blossom - all it needs is for us to pay attention, continue to water it and feed it with all of the nourishment and nutrients that will assist in its growth (enjoyment, positivity, anticipation and enthusiasm), protect it from the destructive factors (negativity, fear, doubt, distrust) and your Lily will continue to grow, propagate and duplicate more of the same!

It is the nature of nature!

In essence :-

BELIEVE that you have all of the instructions and skills to do what is necessary for the success of your dreams, creations, goals and desires!

Have the FAITH that with all of the correct attention that is given to your creation, it will do what it is already inspired to do to grow and succeed.

And TRUST that your Paint Brush Lily creation knows that it is a lily and that it knows exactly what is has to do mature and flourish.
