My Garden A Sanctuary of Peace, Stillness and Growth

My Garden - Healing-Path-CentreGreetings!   As summer slowly fades away I prepare to welcome fall and the need to create on a different level.  Always when the trees start to turn and their leaves flutter down to mother earth, I know fall is on its way.  By then, I am ready to bid farewell to my Garden Sanctuary.  Suddenly, there is a stirring of New Beginnings, not unlike my two great nephews who were filled with excitement as they anxiously awaited their first day of the new school year.  The 6 year old eyes sparkled as he told me about his new French Immersion school and his 4 year old brother was thrilled and delighted he was going into JK.  Indeed!  Fall is without a doubt a time of New Beginnings regardless of age.

In my case, fall is when my creative juices start to flow.  I feel revitalized and renewed.  I spent a great deal of my summer communing with nature and mother earth in my personal Garden Sanctuary.  In a matter of weeks my beautiful flower garden and rich bountiful kitchen garden will be no more.  My personal outdoor sanctuary that connects me to all of life, nature and new growth will be a patch of plain earth ready for the winter snow.

However, the cycle of nature is so powerful it allows one to enjoy the gifts of each season while luxuriating in memories of the one just past.  I go forth into fall treasuring the hours I spent communing with nature, planting, reaping, tilling the earth and feeling connected as I watched vegetables and vines grow, blossom and bloom. I continue to feel profound Gratitude for all the abundance nature gave me.

In the Peace and Stillness of nature I watched new growth appear daily, and the butterflies and bees

Enjoy  the nectar from the flowers.   I knew they too were enjoying my garden.  My heirloom tomato trees and vines became burdened with fruit and the beans and Healing Path Centre Vegetablescucumber vines gave richly of their crop.  My Garden Sanctuary is where I spend time each summer recharging and renewing my mental, spiritual and physical “batteries” in preparation for a creative fall.
To truly rejoice in existence, we must also learn to cultivate serenity, joy and beauty in those special places that replenish the soul. When we create a garden sanctuary, we are reminded that we are a part of both nature’s essence and something more.  An outdoor retreat is a place we can surround ourselves in nature and beauty.  There is no drug to replace the tranquility, peace and pleasure of a garden sanctuary and the rewards are too numerous to mention.  I now prepare to look forward to fall and my new beginnings with a clear and creative mind and peace filled spirit.  If you don’t already have a special Sanctuary that renews your soul, make it number one on your “to do” list.  Remember, where ever your heart sings and your soul dances, let that be your Sanctuary!

To your New Beginnings,

Namaste

Sharon
