If your service was a garden, what seeds would you plant in it? Would you plant bluebells for kindness and humility? Orchids for strength, truth and beauty? Heliotrope for eternal love? Rosemary for remembrance? Sage for wisdom? Thyme for courage and endurance? Spiritual service requires all of these. How can we do this effectively? Here are a few tips: Each morning scan your energy field, cleanse and then seal. Take time out to meditatae before you rush into your day and resolve anything that might bring your energy level down. Set a goal that involves helping someone else without fixing or rescuing.

Remember that if it’s to be it begins with me!
