A new season. A fresh start. I don’t know why I relate the spring equinox with hope and renewal and limitless beginnings, but I do. And I know a lot of other people do as well. Maybe it’s that seed planting thing.

Seeds are little kernels of possibility. Pods of potential. We plant them, water them, nurture them, and if we’re lucky, there will be a good harvest to follow. It’s the same with ideas.

I have a friend who says he’s an “Idea Guy.” He freely admits that some of his ideas are good, some are very good, (some are actually pretty great), and some are not so hot. Nevertheless, you can always count on him to be full of ideas.

So what makes one idea bloom and prosper, and another idea wither and wilt away?

I already told you: It’s all in the cultivation. We have to plant those idea seeds in fertile soil, water them, nurture them, weed them, and tend to them as if our life depends on it. Because it does.

As kids, we pored over the “Sears Wish Book,” marking pages where we coveted the items we wanted to receive for Christmas. In my Law of Attraction Workshops, I have the participants create “Attraction Boxes.” Inside they put pictures, brochures, articles, trinkets of every sort that symbolize their dreams. The seeds are planted.

And then the magic happens. Whatever we put our attention, energy and focus on becomes larger. We create our own reality. The universe aligns to make it happen. Our ideas begin to germinate and sprout.

I can give you dozens of examples on how I have put items into my attraction box and “POOF!” suddenly the thing I’ve most desired appears in my life… Trips, money, job opportunities, motorcycles, even the house I’m living in. It’s uncanny the way the universe infallibly says, “Your wish is my command.”

But you have to tend to your seeds. You can’t just poke them into the ground and expect much in return. Nurture your dreams. Plant those ideas in a fertile imagination. Like with Jack’s Beanstalk, the sky’s the limit!
