The ocean is my happy place
My safe place
A place where I can let go of my worries
I can sit and stare at the waves and let my mind wander
This is a place that helps me in so many ways
I can sit and meditate
I can stare at the ocean, ask my ancestors for guidance, and let the messages flow to me
I can focus on the waves coming in, knowing that the magick I am working is coming to me
Then, in an instant, after the waves have crashed onto the shore again returning to the vast ocean I visualise the blockages within my life leaving me
When I am upset I can let my emotions out, let the energy flow out of me towards to ocean. I can walk to the water’s edge and let the waves wash upon my feet cleansing me
I often find myself staring out into the ocean lost in thought
I get amazing ideas here
I crave to spend time at the oceans edge and as you would know if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I’m there often.
Today was beautiful and sunny so I was able to spend longer there than usual.
I was even able to wear one of my summer dresses, such a change from the recent rugging up (even sometimes wrapping myself in a blanket) to spend time at the beach.
The sun was shining down upon my skin, warming me, and sort of reawakening my from my winter slumber or should I say sluggishness.
Before I knew it I has been sitting there for 2 hours looking out toward to ocean
Watching the waves form and break
Watching the sets roll in
Watching the surfers sitting on their boards then catching a wave
Everyone was out enjoying this beautiful sunny day today
I loved it and feel rejuvenated
Connected to my surroundings and all of the elements
Earth – The sand beneath my feet
Air – The breeze against my skin
Fire – The sun shining upon me
Water – The ocean infront of me
I am so blessed to live so close to the ocean
That Cleansing Wind
What a windy day today…
The August winds have certainly arrive and with a blast…
I had a very busy morning getting things done. Taking my son to the dentist, taking my car to the mechanic and then there was some washing and house work.
And, if you can believe it, I even had time for an afternoon nap.
With the winds arriving today, in a waning moon phase and so close to the dark moon, it was a great time to get outside and start to shed some of that winter funk.
That crazy, deep, no longer needed energy you have been working on releasing over the winter months.
So after my morning of running around, I took a moment to do just that.
I went out and stood upon the ground. Putting my attention to my feet, letting them sink into the grass. Feeling the grass tickling them, feeling the coolness of the earth upon them.
When I felt grounded I closed my eyes and lifted my head to face the wind.
I felt it's strong push across my whole body.
I was moving upon me with such force.
I visualised any negativity that was still hanging around being blown off me.
Anything that still had it's sticky little tendrils attached to me trying to keep its hooks in me, I saw it flying off my body.
I felt the winds move through me, cleansing my whole body.
It was invigorating but also exhausting.
When I felt cleansed, I literally came inside and cuddled up in bed for a couple of hours to nap.
Sleep came easy, and it was deep.
As I sit here now, 9:30pm I am still a little exhausted.
I can still hear the winds howling outside, and the windows rattling in my old little home.
If you have a chance, and the winds are still strong this weekend get outside.
Let the wind shake it up a little
Let it move through your hair and mess it all about
Let it move through your body and touch your core
Begin your cleansing as we move from the depths of winter into the spring
