Get your head out of the gutter and into the soil!
Here are 3 reasons why gardening is super healthy for your mind, body and spirit!
1- Higher Self-Esteem
Even a single session helps you feel productive and purposeful!
2- Improves Focus
Doing a single task like weeding or digging is meditative, which can give your brain practice in focusing!
More and more research shows that children who garden (play in dirt) develop healthier immune systems. Experts suspect grown-ups get an immune boost, too!

Until thought is linked to your purpose, there is no intelligent accomplishment.
We think around 70,000 thoughts a day! Wow, that’s a lot of thoughts! However, are we really thinking or just repeating a pattern of impulses that are on our to do list? To really think is the highest function we are capable of. We can think anything we want, but most of what is going through our minds is not positive, mind expanding thoughts. So how do we hone our thinking skills?
The first thing I recommend is taking time to release any thoughts that are creating busy chatter in the mind. If our minds are overloaded with tasks and scattered, we will have difficulty focusing on what is important and what challenges we are facing that need our attention.
Next, relax, breath and sit quietly. Allow yourself to take time to think about what you want to accomplish. Start imagining what can be possible if you had all the resources available to you. Now your wiring up some new neuro pathways to begin thinking on a higher level. If you engage in this practice ever day, you will begin to think clearly and create some great results!
Do you have a challenge with thinking skills? Let’s talk, so that you can start to achieve some great results!

There are so many things that can pull me away from focusing on the goals I desire to achieve. Everyday I wake up and there they are, distractions! If I don’t stay vigilant and keep my mind on what I want, that eye candy can lead me a stray. Weather it is Facebook, some interesting email, a phone call, or anything else that is competing for my attention, I need to stay focused on the task at hand. I think the world is suffering from attention deficit disorder. Distractions are everywhere! They are competing and filling our minds with unnecessary trivia. Keeping focused is a mental muscle that needs to be developed if we want to see the results that we desire. Desire means to give birth to. So if you desire to birth an idea, you must stay focused. Keep your thoughts directed on your vision every day. Give your attention, intention and release any tension, and before you know it, you will see your vision manifest into the physical. A laser beam is the extreme focus of light that can cut through steel. Think about what you can accomplish with laser beam thoughts!

When people ask me how am I? I never like to say I’m so busy. I’d rather say I have many projects that I am involved in. To me, busy can mean spinning my wheels without getting anywhere. The language I use internally and externally can affect your productivity. Yes, so many of us have so many things on our plate that it can seem overwhelming, but I never found multi-tasking the solution. How about focusing on one project at a time? We live in a world of addiction and distraction. It’s the shiny object syndrome. We can get lead astray very easily, if we do not stay focused on the task at hand. Concentration, is a skill that needs to be cultivated and practiced. If your an archaeologist searching for bones, or an astronomer looking for stars, it tasks long hours of persistence, focus, and skill, to keep your mind sharp and productive. A busy mind will never do. A busy mind, also is sending out vibrations of chaos rather than calmness, and that is exactly what will be reflected back to you. So stay calm, centered and productive in this busy world.

Do you know what you want? Do you know your purpose? If not, there will be some confusion in your mind that will resonate in your feelings, which will bring you undesirable results. You must be clear as to what you desire before you can see desirable results. When you have clarity, the universe will conspire and assist you in every way to match your desire. I know this is true in my life. When I have clarity as to what I want, I begin to see signs all around me helping me to fulfill that vision. I wanted to write a book, and when I was clear with this vision, all things came into focus as to how to accomplish it. Now it is published and the title is How May I Serve. I have a pen name; (Karen Mathews) Here is a short video about it.
This is the very first step to manifesting anything you truly want. So spend some time getting clear. Really think about what it is you want. This is probably the greatest work you can do for yourself. Look inside your heart and ask for guidance. Trust that the universe, is always listening. Believe that you can be, do, or have want you want, and take action, when you get clear. Soon it will become a reality. It will feel so good when you have that clarity!
Here’s to manifesting your dreams!
