Today I spent some time on the beach listening to the message from the sea, and it helped me remember the bright little girl I once was. Growing up in my family was not a cup of tea for an indigo child. My mother and I never got along so there was a lot of drama and inconsistency at home and I was drawn to the consistency of the sea.
Many afternoons I sat on the sand in front of the sea, just like I am today. Those days there were many times where I felt alone, misunderstood. But I had my sea and my beach. I sat in front of the water and let the sound of the waves crash on the shore and the kindness of the wind would bring the wisdom of the sea my way so it could gently kiss my ears.
Back then I didn’t know that those waves were talking to me. I didn’t understand why in front of the sea I was so peaceful. Now I know the world has a language in the stillness and in the being-ness of the sand. No matter how much you step on it, it will always be there. The waves washing the sand off my legs was always going to be there. It will never fail in consistency. There is always another wave…and another wave…teaching us about life…about being patient. And there is no “perfect wave” waiting for you to ride in. Eventually you must see your opportunity, take a chance and choose one.
A message from the sea
The sea was gently telling me that everything is temporary. All the situations and people around me were all on their own path, which wasn’t necessarily easy for me or anyone else. But it was okay, because one day I would find and ride the wave of my life, and that all would be okay.
That wave eventually took me far away from Brazil where I would sit on a different beach and remember the wisdom the waves shared all those years ago. They coaxed me onto a journey to another country toward many blessings and opportunities to show my students how to find their own path to change and transformation. The ride here wasn’t always a nice one. There were bumps. But I learned to love, bless and release those bumps, understanding that they too had their own reason to be there, just like the bumps when I was growing up. It was all right then, and it will be all right now.
A message for you
Those waves also talked about this day, today, when you would read this blog and wonder about your own situation. They asked me to pass what I learned on to you. Whatever situation you find yourself in, it too shall pass. If you trust the tides of your own life and stay still as the rain falls and passes over, you will be able to see the wave that will take you through the journey of your life.
This is a reminder that today is the day you can free yourself from the webs of the past. Turn that page in your life and be present. You are closer than you think. It is time to start focusing on returning to what it is that you are here to ride, who you want to have alongside you and who’s lives you want to impact. Start telling your story, speak from the heart, and let your voice be heard. The things that make you different and complicated are exactly what make you unique. They will speak to those who are meant to be served by you.
