To That From Which We Came

We begin our very physical existence in water.  It is in the womb that we are surrounded by the gentle, soothing fluid that allows our consciousness to develop, our human-ness to form. 

There is something so beautiful, natural, and serene about being one with the nature of life itself.  There is an inherent truth to an integral return to that from which we came, that from which we developed and discovered ourselves, that from which our consciousness is at home and one with.  It is the very nature of our mermaid soul…

Returning to our natural states is as necessary as the air we must breathe to live, as the sustenance we require to exist as a complete and conscious body.  It is there that we can awaken to our greatest power and potential.

Life crashes us with its thunderous surf.  It lulls us with its tides.  It pushes us with its currents.  We only need to look at the waters to understand the vulnerability and strength within us.  We only need to dive deeply into where we came from to recover the treasures that are within our hearts and souls. 

Breathe and anchor yourself in the rush of each present wave… surrender to the flow… allow the sea to carry you, just as it did at your very beginning. 

breathe and anchor yourself

I Must Be A Mermaid is the blending of my own personal soul searching with the inspirations and insights that I first found in the community of like-minded writers, healers, and teachers on Facebook. I dove in, created my page, and found the courage to swim through whatever was in my path, giving voice to my feelings through my personal observations and writing, as well as of those that spoke to me. With my I Must Be A Mermaid blog, I will fearlessly dive deeper into the realms of my heart and soul, swimming through their waters as a mermaid immersed in the sea of life.

Anchoring Your Soul

There has been much talk lately about passion.  Passion is what drives us –compelling us to live fully and on purpose.  Most of us have some idea of what we want to be when we grow up.  From a tender age, we imagine ourselves as adults having some role in the world.  Many a young boy dreamed of being a fireman, a fisherman, or a doctor; many a young girl longed to be an actress, a dancer, or a mother.  Over our development from children to young adults, we refine those images – we start to examine our likes and interests, our strengths and challenges, and what makes our hearts sing.  We start to formulate not just what we want to be, but who.  We follow that thread, as if it was a serpentine string to a surprise box centerpiece.  Our path winds as a river rushes and then gently flows.  (more…)
