Will you be true to me?

Posted by on Oct 3, 2013 in Entreprenurial Ponderings | 5 Comments

The autumn harvests of old took place from early August to late October.  During this same time frame, I have been harvesting a new vision of my work and my place in the world.  The last couple of years have been spent going deep into the soil of my life and planting new seeds.  Now there’s a harvest in progress, a coalescing of what I’ve gleaned that my soul wants to express; wants to bring more fully into my work with my clients.

At first glance, the new pieces don’t appear to fit in neatly with my current services.  I could compartmentalize them as I have done in the past.  But that feels like cutting myself into pieces when my heart is seeking integration.  And so it asks, “Will you be true to me?”

Have there been new truths growing for you that want to come more fully into expression, through you and out into the world?  Have you been tending new visions of what your spiritual entrepreneurship could be that are ready for harvest?  Perhaps the field is covered in a morning mist so that what’s taking shape isn’t quite distinct, but something in you knows it’s out there ripening.

The last harvest of the year, “Harvest Home,” is when all the summer’s bounty is in and stored for the winter.  It’s a time of great relief, great celebration, and great gratitude for the unified efforts of Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Spirit that yield this life-giving abundance.  As you approach your own time of “Harvest Home,” what ripe goodness will you be bringing in to celebrate and share?

Until next time …

    Jana, Love this post and what really stands out for me is your reminder that this is harvest time in the northern hemisphere! It’s entirely too easy for us to live completely out of touch with nature, sadly. Last week I was on vacation hearing elk bugling as they seek their mates and watching bison and antelope grazing on all the grass they can chew before snows come to the high elevations. Yet, I forgot it is my season for harvest too. Thank you for opening my mind and heart.

      Andrea, it’s lovely to hear from you that this reminder of our own connection to harvest season spoke to you. The reminders from the natural world can guide us to consciously turn our attention to the blessings and richness of our lives in synch with the season – wherever we live. Good harvest to you!

    It has been so unrelentingly hot here that it is hard to remember that it is harvest season. But I have been counting my blessings, as always, and I have been so grateful for the new little crop of cuties in my class and my own two. I am a fortunate woman!

      Hopefully the stormy “Karen” will cool things down a bit for you! I know your little crop of kinder-cuties are mighty grateful for ending up in your class this year. You are my blessing, dear friend!
