30 Jun Sea, Sun, Ocean Breeze
Sea, Sun Ocean Breeze
Here I am on the pacific coast of Costa Rica! There is something about the sea, sun and ocean breezes that makes me laugh out loud! Every morning I walk this beautiful beach and salute the rising sun…. It is magnificent… My heart feels the sun’s radiance and I am warmed from the inside out. I laugh because I am here experiencing my life. The sea pulls me to laugh, live joyously out loud and without apologies.
Have you felt that way in your life? Is there something that calls forth your joy?
My morning ritual here is to walk directly into the ocean, face the sun and give thanks for being alive this day. I am called to gather the healing forces of nature; of sea, sun, wind, earth, moon, trees, birds in flight, and send the unity of those powerful healing energies out to those I care for and love.
My I See the Sea affirmations were written here on this same beach and today the power in the simplicity of the affirmations re-energized me as I walked the waves. They re-affirmed my spiritual connection to the sea. Do you feel a spiritual connection to the sea and all things of nature?
“I see the sea and the sea in me is Boundless.”
“I see the wind and the wind in me is Freedom.”
“I see the moon and the moon in me is Luminous.”
“I see the sun and the sun in me is Passion.”
