It may be the tiniest spark, the smallest inkling – barely audible until you put your ear close.
You may see an almost invisible change in light.
Fingers lift your chin via the scent of rosemary or mint or in the early morning as you take your morning walk. Maybe you sit on your porch and write bacon sizzling on someone’s stove in the neighborhood. Cinnamon, warming up, perhaps is the scent that calls you.
Allow these voices to rise through you now.
What is the seed inviting you to say? To write? To create?
Is it a poem, a song, a letter to your fourth grade teacher?
Is the seed saying a warning, a funny story, a memory to cover you gently like a down comforter at precisely the right moment?
Take that seed-music and create. Paint. Cut and glue and make mistakes. And grow in acceptance that those exact mistakes are the exact right result.
Allow the seed song to fill you with courage so you may create fearlessly.
Imbue the seeds beginnings with a sprinkling of gratitude.
Mix up a batch of thank you’s for the persistence of the muse, the repetition of the note so you finally tuned in to hear it or the ticklish jolt of awareness.
Be with gratitude as it morphs into wild, passionate love – simply because you listened, you saw, you took the tiniest action and now create… simply create.
Prompt: What is the seed song inviting me to (write, sing, dance, paint) with gratitude? Today, I (hear, see, feel, smell, touch....)
