In our last +1, we did some severe pruning with Steve Chandler and Ralph Waldo Emerson. (How’d that go for you? More specifically: What went for you?)
 
Today we’re going to spend some more time doing creative gardening with Steve. 
 
Now, as we discussed in our +1 on our radish farm (oops!), I’m not much of a gardener. (Hah.) So… I’d never heard of “grow lights” before but I love the way Steve captures their metaphorical power. 
 
Here’s how he puts it in CREATOR: “When an aware person (someone who knows and realizes that they are creative energy itself) notices that the sales of their services have been neglected—resulting in lower income—they simply turn their light (creative energy) toward the sales process.
‘Whatever you give your attention to grows’ is not just some positive slogan—it’s how the world actually works. The more you become aware that you are infinite, creative energy, the more you can see yourself as light.
 
Think of it the way a gardener uses a grow light.’ Sometimes called a ‘plant light,’ grow lights make it easy to grow plants indoors. Grow lights are used for horticulture, indoor gardening, indoor hydroponics, and aquatic plants. Shine a grow light on your indoor plant and you ignite enough photosynthesis for the plant to grow.
 
Creativity is just like that light. You can shine your grow light anywhere. On your business, on relationships, on your exercise routine, on your music, and on your education.”
 
Love it!!!
 
Want to grow something in your life?
 
SHINE THE LIGHT OF YOUR AWARENESS ON IT.
 
Yep. That’s the trick-ticket.
 
Which kinda begs two questions:
  1. What would you like to see more of in your life? And,
  2. How can you shine a little more grow light on it?
 
Today a good day to get on that, my CREATOR friend?!?
