It’s incredible how many decisions you make at an early age. You make them based on your life’s circumstances at the time and they get seeded into your psyche. You often spend your entire life carrying some big misunderstandings within you that got created by decisions you made at an early age.
I was five. I didn’t know it then, but I was having my first spiritual experience. I was in kindergarten. As a class project, each kid planted an apple seed in a small container and watched it grow over time. Each day in class, we tended to those plants. We loved them into existence, and with every passing day my little seed seemed to take root and grow taller and stronger. My tree grew so well that when it got to be one foot high, I took it home. My mom helped me transplant it in our backyard.
As I grew that tree, I was also having my first experience with my powers of creation. I freaking loved that tree. We were connected. The pride I felt swelled in my heart as I engaged with my blossoming seedling. Every day, I went out back to visit my creation. I talked to it and I was sure it was whispering the secrets of the Universe to me. I offered it my unconditional love as I sat there in the dirt day after day, visiting with my little tree. I dreamed of the big red apples that I imagined would fall off those branches one day.
On a cool Saturday afternoon in October, just as the leaves on the big oaks in the backyard were turning garnet red, my dad was outside cutting the lawn. His efforts were careless as he was in a mad rush to get inside and watch the football game that had just started on TV. With a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, distracted in thought, he unknowingly and unconsciously pushed his lawn mower right over my little creation. He killed my tree.
I sobbed when my mother told me, as she desperately tried to console me. It was a scene. I was crying and acting hysterical, far beyond what a parent might expect. I did not understand until much later, it was the devastating loss of my first creation.
Years later this incident returned to my memory. I realized this experience seeded the deep-rooted belief inside of me that my contributions, cultivations, and efforts were not fully valued. It also began a pattern in my life where I had to be the one to “get things done.” If I didn’t, clearly, no one else was capable. Even deeper still, this seemingly insignificant event, stunted my powers as a creator also locking in the incorrect belief that I shouldn’t bother. (Of course, all of these thoughts were in my subconscious and caused me to live a life I really didn’t love. It wasn’t until I was in my forties that all of this came to light.)
This early apple episode also underscored another limiting belief: I have to work really hard to prove myself to everyone about everything, because anyone could easily come by and mow over my efforts, and it would all be for naught. In that moment, the control freak inside of me was born. Thanks, Dad.
Sound familiar? I’m sure you have your own story. Maybe you’ve figured it out already. Maybe you’re in the process of realizing it now. Or maybe you’re sure you don’t have anything like this running around in your subconscious.
