What kind of seed do you plant if you want an apple tree? Corn? Of course not, if you plant corn, you will get corn. If you want to get an apple tree, you plant an apple seed, right?
So it is with what we wish to "harvest" in and with our lives, friend.
As always, the choice is mine and yours. It is our choice as to what we plant but, know this: we will reap (harvest) what we sow (plant).
Notice the quote above from Earl Nightingale: "Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality."
What is our subconscious mind? I came up with this analogy in the podcast and I think it's pretty good and easy to understand. Have you ever been around a young child that was learning to talk? You don't think much about what you say because this child has not been talking and you have not been made aware of what the child is actually hearing. And then, one day, the child repeats something back that you have said and you are shocked and embarrassed! The child has simply repeated what it has heard. The child does not understand the meaning or the intent behind the words.
So it is with your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind will pick up whatever you say and do - good or bad and will repeat it back to you. YIKES!
This is really not that hard to understand but it IS hard to change and it is hard to stay consistent (repetitious) with as well.
If you plant negativity into your subconscious mind and you nourish that "seed" with repetition, day in and day out, and emotion (anger, frustration, depression, hopelessness), then your harvest will BE a life of this negativity. You can't expect a peaceful life by planting and nourishing negativity.
The other side of the issue is true as well. I say on my podcast everyday that I believe that "Your greatest education takes place on the campus of your mind." It is of key importance that we all do everything within our power to plant nothing but good and positive thoughts into our subconscious mind.
When we plant that good seed and we nourish or water that seed repeatedly and with the emotions that go along with that seed (peace, happiness, joy) then we will reap the benefits of a life of peace, happiness and joy. Such is the harvest from this kind of seed!
So, again, it is up to you! Don't get upset when you plant squash and you get squash. Don't get upset when you plant negative thoughts and feelings and that is what you receive in the "harvest".
I'm here to help as much as I can with this blog and the podcast. Fill your mind - plant as much as you can - of this kind of "seed" and see what kind of fruit comes from such activity.
Get busy "farmer"!
And, as you do so, be sure to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
