Planting the Seed Deed * Practical Steps To Manifesting Your Dreams

How much time do we spend thinking and talking about issues in our lives and how much more time do we spend coming up with possible – but only possible – goals that might change things for the better?

Many of us try to attract a variety of goals into our lives through prayer, creative visualization and repeated affirmations. And indeed, what we meditate on, what we focus on (and what we obsess about) will find us, one way or another, somewhere in Time – in this lifetime or another.

But there is something immediate and  practical we can do to bring new things into our lives. We need to link our mental act of intention to a physical act, one which sets our mental image into the world.

I am talking here about planting a Seed Deed, a simple, physical act with metaphysical, creative power.  It occurs when we act spontaneously – yet with conscious focus – into the world around us with a small, practical act which symbolizes our larger goal.  Such a Seed Deed generates a field of energy which keeps expanding, as all deeds placed into matter must, into eventual fruition.

In planting a Seed Deed in the soil of the here-and-now world we are directing the  energy of Symbol through a physical act which is pregnant with transformation. This, really, is the essence of Magick – because in planting a Seed Deed we are engaging in a small ritual act which symbolizes something larger which we hope will flow out of the act.

A Seed Deed always breaks new ground, carrying our psychic energy out into the physical world. It is that most highly-charged event – a Choice – often sudden and impulsive, a potent force which springs from surprising sources within the Self.

One acts upon a little prompting or inspiration that bubbles up from somewhere within – and from that simple act may come a whole new life.

A Seed Deed can be a phone call, an online inquiry, starting a blog or journal, dropping off a resume. It can be a small gesture ((a Like on Facebook) hinting at reconciliation with an old friend, signing up for a course, spending one’s last few dollars on a new book, an inspirational piece of jewelry, or donating these last dollars to a homeless person.

All these are Beginnings and no one knows where a Beginning may lead…The power lies not in certainty of outcome, but in the mysterious process of opening up a new field of energy in the Universe.  A Seed Deed is a turning point, and we can feel it, a small thing but loaded with symbolism and an uplifting sense that we have in some unknown way crossed over a bridge. We have no idea what will actually “grow” from this Seed, but we know a space has beencreated for something new…

What grows from a Seed Deed may be quite unexpected, an answer which actually reframes the issue or brings an answer we had not visualized. So once you have acted, let go – pat the soil around the Deed, be happy and confident, and enjoy the release of energy that you will truly feel.

Let Time do its magic…change will come, and yes, it might even be in another life, depending on the weather of your karmic seas. But once the Beginning is made, all that is needed has been done…
