The view from a blanket
I spent this past weekend at one of my favorite places in the world, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. For me the vibe there is incredibly peaceful and let's be honest, there's something about spending time on any beach on a warm, sunny day that encourages slowing down and just going with the flow. Being on the beach also encourages me to just listen. Look at this picture for a moment. Can't you hear the waves kissing the beach? What about the sound of your breath moving in and out of your body in time with the water coming in and out..going on and on. Slowing down already aren't you? Me too.
As I sat on my blanket listening to the waves and my breath my thoughts stayed upon the play between the water and the sand. Each time the water comes in it takes some of the sand with it and deposits treasures on the beach in a never ending cycle of giving and receiving.
I began asking myself; Have I been giving of my time and energy without taking the time to recharge? Am I so focused on what's going to happen tomorrow that I haven't really been honoring that I've received right now? How has that been working for me? Am I feeling resentful, drained or harboring feelings of 'not enough' or entitlement? Yes? Well then my dear Tea Priestess chances are you are out of balance! Fortunately once I recognize the imbalance I can take steps to bring myself back into alignment.
In Doreen Virtue's Goddess Guidance Oracle, Sedna, Inuit Goddess of the sea provides sustenance to here people and reminds us of the infinite supply available to us but there must be a balance of giving and receiving to ensure a continuation of the supply. She reminds us not to worry about the future, to slow down and know that we are supplied with everything we need for today. Sedna also reminds us we can often find vast treasures and a wealth of healing if we allow ourselves to go into the emotional depths with our guides both on this plane and in the spirit realm. And if you can take some time to walk along the beach or another body of water you may find treasures as well.
