Plant a seed or a plant. Follow the directions about how much sun and shade is needed and seek a place in your yard, deck or home that will nourish your plant. Look carefully into the soil that you plant it in; does it have enough drainage and nutrients? Dig a hole that is just right so that the seed or plant is not buried so deeply that the sun cannot find it to warm it to germinate and emerge. Make sure it is set in deeply enough that the earth holds it lovingly before it is ready to seek the light.
Pay careful attention to the weather. If it is going to rain, let the skies take care of your seedling. If there is no rain and the soil is becoming dry, water carefully so that you do not create a waterlogged, moldy seed.
Trust that this seed will germinate as it is meant to; to produce the living being that it is coded for.
Do not hover.
Plant something to take care of, to watch grow and flourish. Plant something and give it fertile hope, love and kindness. If you would like to see your plant grow taller and healthier, speak gently and lovingly to it. Remind it that it is beautiful and growing just the way that it should.
Let your plant reflect back those messages that you are giving it. That you are beautiful. That you are healthy. That you are capable.
