Potted Plant

Ok. So I wanted to write today about this metaphor I had read, about growing in your spiritual journey. I can’t find who posted it anywhere. It’s driving me crazy. haha! So I’ll just do the best I can with what I remember of it.

The metaphor was something like this…

Imagine a potted plant…Your spiritual growth is like a potted plant. Eventually the plant outgrows the pot. It needs to be repotted in a larger pot, to allow it to continue to grow. It’s ok if you lose some leaves along the way, too. Sometimes we need to lose some leaves and grow new ones that serve us better.

That was the metaphor, or at least what I can remember of it. If anyone knows where that came from let me know. I follow so many spiritual accounts/have spiritual friends, I gave up searching. 🙂


That really resonated with me. I am in a repotting stage in my spiritual journey. I’ve outgrown my pot and need a bigger one. I think that’s why I’ve been struggling inside so much. I’m scared to take the leap to the bigger pot. I’m afraid what I will lose/leave behind. But it is also exciting to see all the amazing newness come into my life, from all the growth I’ve undergone so far.

A spiritual journey/awakening is such a rollercoaster. But it’s one that I’m so glad I decided to get on. There is so much depth to it. And I absolutely love the community I have found recently. It’s crazy because I had literally prayed for that for years. I prayed for more real, authentic friends. (I do have some already 🙂 but had prayed for more) I wanted a tribe, and I’m finding that the more and more I go. The more I step out of my comfort zone. Finding people that truly just want the best for others, who help each other, who operate in love.

We are all beings made of love and light. I hope to continue to be an example of that for others, and maybe help them along the way. I’m not saying I’m perfect. That’s the whole point of a journey. We learn and grown along the way. I have things I’m working on internally everyday. But I try my best daily to view the world through loving eyes, through understanding.

I had predicted this year would be a powerful one for me, and it absolutely has been. Did anyone else feel that way?

Does this resonate with you? Let me know. 🙂
