Seeds of Greatness

Planting spiritual seeds is the practice of nurturing and cultivating our inner selves, just as we would a garden. When we plant a seed, we do not see the results immediately, but with time and care, that seed can grow into a beautiful flower or a bountiful harvest. Similarly, when we plant spiritual seeds, we may not see the results right away, but with patience and dedication, we can experience profound growth and transformation.


Every small step we take toward our spiritual growth can lead to big results. It is not about making drastic changes overnight, but rather making small positive changes consistently over time. This can include daily meditation, practicing gratitude, or simply taking a few moments to connect with nature each day. By taking these small steps, we are planting the seeds of mindfulness, compassion, self-awareness, and self-love that can lead to a more fulfilling and spiritually aligned life.



A holistic approach to spiritual growth involves nurturing all aspects of ourselves - mind, body, and spirit. Incorporating things like regular physical activity, eating a healthy and balanced diet, and building supportive relationships with others. It is important to remember that our spiritual growth is not separate from our physical and emotional well-being, but rather interconnected and interdependent.


A great example of this process is the Redwood trees. Their seeds are so very tiny and yet they grow to be forest skyscrapers, standing tall and strong. This incredible transformation is a beautiful metaphor for spiritual growth.


Our own journey, like that of the redwood, often begins with tiny steps that may seem insignificant. Perhaps a moment of reflection, an act of kindness, or a simple prayer. However small, these seeds of spiritual practice can blossom into a life of beauty and fulfillment.


"Planting seeds is an act of faith in the future. Whether it's for a garden or our own spiritual growth, we must trust that the small steps we take today will lead to a bountiful harvest tomorrow. This is the essence of the spiritual path."  Naomi Marsh, Author, Holistic Behavioral Coach Educator

The redwoods themselves are a spiritual realm for myself and many others, evoking awe and reverence in the presence of these ancient beings. They remind us of our interconnectivity and our place in something greater than ourselves.


The redwoods teach us valuable lessons in resilience and tenacity. Despite their longevity, the trees persist through harsh conditions, including wildfires. They continue to flourish and grow stronger with each passing year.


Our spiritual journey, too, may encounter obstacles, but like the redwoods, we can learn to adapt and persevere, emerging stronger and more steadfast.


In a world that can leave us feeling untethered, disconnected, and uncertain, trees provide grounding and stability, reminding us to stay true to our values and truth. Taking a moment to connect with nature and appreciate the gifts of trees can be a spiritual and rejuvenating experience.


So, when the spiritual path feels arduous or unyielding, take heart in the redwood seeds. Cultivate patience, commit to your practices, and trust that the seeds you plant today will yield towering growth in the years to come.


May you continue to plant and nurture your own spiritual seeds, and trust in the path ahead.
