An Ancient Planting Ritual To
Transform Your Health
No matter where you are in your health journey, this is something you can do to kick start your health transformation.
October 2, 2022
In today’s society, BIG DREAMS are often tied to money and climbing the business or corporate success ladder. In 2019 the Global Wellness Institute valued the global wellness industry at $4.9 trillion dollars. Financial guru’s always say, show me your bank account and I’ll show you what matters to a person most. We don’t really refer to optimal health as a BIG DREAM, yet so many of us are spending thousands and millions to be healthy.
The birth of Feel Well Magazine comes from an entrepreneur’s desire to feel well while creating some of her greatest work. Feeling unwell or unhealthy as you build your empires is not an option because it will reproduce itself in your work. Autumn is officially here and it is the time when most businesses plan for the following year. It is the time to plant new goals and intentions for business and health. Join us this Autumn season for a Feel Well Journey of planting intentions and watching them grow.
1. Setting the Intention
To set your intentions, simply identify the outcomes desired. An intention is what you are aiming to achieve. Are you aiming to lose a certain amount of pounds? Are you aiming for a feeling of more energy? Set the intention with specificity. Specificity makes the intention quantifiable. Write your intentions twice, once in a notebook and again on a separate sheet of paper. Get ready to plant.
“Quantum physics really begins to point to this discovery. It says that you can't have a Universe without mind entering into it...” -Fred Alan Wolf
This quote simply means be intentional.
2. Plant the Seeds
Marie Forleo, author of Everything Is Figureoutable interviewed Zimbabwean-American educator Dr. Terrerai Trent on How To Achieve Impossible Dreams for MarieTV in 2019. During this episode they discussed Dr. Tererai’s journey to earning her doctorate’s degree despite being unable to go to school in Zimbabwe. Dr. Tererai shares with viewers how her mother encouraged her to write those dreams on paper and plant them in the ground. Following Dr. Tererai’s advice, you too can plant your intentions of optimal health. Give your intentions permission to take root in the Earth and in you.
When we plant our dreams we give them permission to take root and grow.
3. Nurture Your Intentions
As children we are taught that plants only need three things to grow: water, sunlight and food (nutrients). There are many things we can add to the list, but you get the picture. If it works for the plants, it will work for you.
What are your intentions hungry for?
What kind of food do they like?
Do they like to learn about a certain topic?
Watch YouTube videos, read books or attend events to flood your intentions with everything they need to stay alive.
Water your intentions. Feed them. Keep them full. Give your intentions as much sunlight as possible. Crazy thing about intentions is they have a crazy way of absorbing light and making it their own.
4. Let Them Grow
The forest started with one tree but multiplied into many.
Everyone says they want growth, but human beings have this crazy way of stopping things from getting too big. If our goal is to reach one hundred people, many of us will stop at ninety-nine people. I think it comes from a fear of thinking the thing will get bigger than us alone, as an individual, and we will lose control. If your intentions come from a meaningful place, they probably will get bigger than you alone. Lol.
Don’t be afraid of disconnecting with people. Don’t be afraid of change and transformation. Don’t try to dig up your intentions before time, they will call out to you when it is time to dig.
Spend time with your intentions everyday. Speak to them and let them speak to you. You have already given optimal health permission to take root in your soul and cells. Embrace them and let them grow.
