My Shadow

As an organic gardener, I’ve heard, the best fertilizer for my garden is my shadow.

Through years of experience in life and in the garden, I know this to be true.

While I was inspecting my garden this morning, pulling weeds, pinching off the side shoots of my tomatoes, killing beetles on my cantaloupe flowers and spraying lemongrass essential oil in mosquito prone water traps, it once again occurred to me how powerful a teacher Mother Nature is.

As our shadow in our gardens suggests… we’re around, looking, inspecting and being wholly aware of what’s going on in there. If you catch a pest in the beginning, you can save yourself heartache and veggies. Otherwise, waiting around, not paying attention and ignoring the issue can spread the problem further throughout your garden.

This same principle stands true in our thoughts and minds. A Conscious Creator knows that negative thoughts and lower vibration emotions are to be acknowledged and felt through rather than ignored or worse, fueled. Can you imagine feeding the pests that were destroying your garden? What if you’re doing just that, unconsciously?

What Does it Mean to be a Conscious Creator?

I’ve been supporting small businesses by volunteering through my local Austin SCORE chapter since December of last year and one of my mentees ask me to explain the term, Conscious Creator. Thanks for that!

A Conscious Creator is someone who understands they are affecting their own reality with energy, thoughts, actions, and emotions, and so navigates life without giving power to (being upset by) outside circumstances. This doesn’t mean they don’t feel the physical sensations of that upset physically in the body, it just means they don’t react to situations because of those feelings. They are thoughtful and aware, giving themselves time to understand the situation and respond in the way that will bring them the best results.

A Conscious Creator recognizes that their outside physical circumstance is a direct reflection of their own inner turmoil, therefore the work is done internally mentally/emotionally and never blamed on another.

A Conscious Creator innerstands they have ALL THE POWER to make anything happen in their own life, no matter the outside circumstance.

A Conscious Creator realizes Fear as information, notices manipulation and doesn’t respond as if their life is in danger.

Conscious Creators in Action

As we’re the only ones always with ourselves, it serves us well to be a shadow to what’s going on in our own mind. Learning to control our emotions and take a few moments before making a decision is a worthwhile endeavor. I have countless examples of when my knee jerk reaction was wrong and even more examples of something I didn’t like in the beginning turning out to be something I very much enjoyed and appreciated.

In the coming days and weeks I’m going to be posting a series of blogs about fear. So much of what I see in the world today is people living with and by fear. Be Safe! Be Careful… being the mantra for all occasions. What if you knew there was nothing to be afraid of?

If a life FREE from FEAR and anxiety sounds like a dream, stick around. We’re going to explore the reasons for fear and how it’s used. We’ll also discuss the science of Conscious Creation and how to use the information fear offers to your benefit.

If you’re attached to the SELF-limiting lifestyle fear and anxiety offer you, enjoy! Free will is a beautiful thing and all experiences are available, AND educational. You do you.

But, if you’re tired of being afraid and ready to take command of your own life the next few blogs will offer you some new things to think about. Old programming can be interrupted by actually becoming aware of it and questioning it’s origins.

So, like your shadow in the garden… make sure of your shadow in the “garden” of your own life. Spend time in awareness of your own thoughts, “beliefs” and the physical sensations that accompany your emotions. These Conscious Creators guidance tools help clarify the “reason” for current experiences and keep the most important areas of focus, top of mind.

Here’s to becoming better Conscious Creators through the release of fear and anxiety. It’s all energy and it’s all moving!

If you know this already and just need support, I’m here for that too.

Get ready to relax and enjoy your life!

  1. Iโ€™m looking forward to your article on fear, it will be interesting.
    I take a different approach to my veggie patch and allow the insects to take their share as this is how nature works. The insects do their thing and the birds eat the insects. along the way I get a crop out of my patch and everyone is happy including my neighbours who get the excess.
