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.

Ocean Breath

 

I was born out of ocean breath…

I am from the salt spray of the sea,  the rolling in, the rumbling of the surf,

the unveiling of what lies in the depths, the heart and soul of me.

The Breeze At Dawn Has Secrets To Tell

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.  Don’t go back to sleep!
”  ~Rumi

We experience things – traumas, hardships, heartbreak…  and they wake us up for a while.  We are able to see our world with a new perspective and open heart and soul, our minds accepting an expanded consciousness…. a boundless terrain of possibilities and options.  And then it is as if we are overwhelmed or overloaded, or that our minds cannot make sense of any more, and so we forget for awhile… We carry on in our humanness – with our responsibilities and obligations.  We suppress our inner wisdom and the draw it has on our soul.  We become sad and depressed, as repressing our true purpose and passion undermines our abilities to find and feel joy.  Until something else happens that jolts our very stability and strength.  And then once again, there is a traumatic or other heart opening experience that redirects us on to the path of spiritual exploration, integrity, and enlightenment.  How can we stay awake?  How can we prevent the sleeping sickness from taking over our beings?  The secrets Rumi writes about are the secrets of the universe, our personal universe as well as the collective and unified one.  Listen to the whispers, the gentle breeze that echoes through you.  In them you will surely find you.

And what an interesting discovery to see that those lines I quoted were part of this poemthe breeze at dawn:

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the doorsill where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

Don’t go back to sleep.

Shifting to Our Higher Self

I read somewhere that each incarnation is just a different aspect of our self, perhaps another version, or even a better vestige of who we are meant to be.  It is an interesting perspective with regard to past lives.  That with each lifetime, we become more invested in our soul and its journey, exploring unknowingly each contract and path, with an open heart and eye, and with the knowledge that all of our aspects will in the end come together, and we will evolve into one enlightened being, that we will fold or merge in to our higher self.

I have this image of multiple me’s.   Like when you stand between two mirrors – a mirror in front of you and behind you – you can see a hundred images of yourself, each fragmented in your limited perception, as you cannot fully see every one of you.  I began to think of the soul as an accordion.  Each fold another experience, another aspect, age.  (more…)
