Plants are Revealing

By Tiffany A. Dedeaux

In considering my nature as a mirror for my life I thought it a keen observation that in moving to Bellingham I also made more of a commitment to my coaching practice, Sacred TimeChanging careers or commitments can mean other changes as well, like changes to money and how it flows in and out of your world. 

I left a lucrative job in the Seattle area nearly a year ago.  At the time in the entrance to my office was a large money tree.  Last summer the leaves and branches began to wilt no matter what I did.  I watered, I stopped watering, I added Dr. Earth.  Nothing seemed to help.  Finally I pulled the whole tree out of the pot and massaged the roots and added new soil.  It stabilized.  I smile now realizing how much my life was in flux at that time.  I lost two of three trunks of the tree last year.  I lost big parts of my former life.

Well it’s happened again.  This spring leaves and branches have been dying off the top of the tree as new growth at the base has sprouted and grown.  It remains to be seen if I can save all or part of the tree.  Right now the top of it is bare and the bottom of it’s full of young new life.  While concerned about what the tree looked like a client asks me if anything is going on with my money.  I smiled.  The resources from my former life are gone and this new life shows promise.

What are the plants in your life revealing about your situation?
