Every thought, feeling, sound, or action from us contributes to the nature of the vibration that emanates from our body. The truth is that we can attract similar energy vibrations to us. Have you ever been with a group of friends where the joy is so infectious that your belly hurt from all the laughter? Or conversely with a friend who was sad, and you felt that sadness in your own heart and soul. It is so important to be mindful of our energy and what vibrational message we are sending out. Breathing is the first step to our becoming aware of our energetic signature. Just breathing deeply, fully, in complete cycles of inhalation and exhalation, will help get our energy moving. Another really helpful practice, is to each morning before you do anything else, wake up your body. Spend the time each and every morning to ground and center yourself. Whether it is a simple stretch sequence or a personal yoga practice, spend the first few minutes of each day becoming mindful of how you feel – body, mind, heart, and soul. Scan your body as you stretch, as you breathe… Notice where the kinks are, notice what thoughts are getting stuck, and breathe and move through it. Get your energy flowing. Set your vibration to receive joy, happiness, patience, love… whatever it is that you want to embrace you.
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.
I have been pondering one of my catch phrases… “Dive deep”. Meaning is a subjective thing. We give everything in our life meaning by the value we place on it. So I asked myself, what is the value of diving deep into my heart and soul? The painful unraveling of the puzzle of who I am, chiseling the layers of self protection to discover that essence, where every breath, if I let it, helps shatter the illusions, the non truths, inviting me to reach for and grasp my very passion and purpose that I am diving for, to find and live in alignment and balance.
We dive for the inspiration to get through our day, our life. We dive for answers to our many questions. We dive with our mermaid sisters so we can know that we are not alone, that we are supported and loved though our journey is fraught with emotional undertows.
We dive deeply into our selves so that we may find our highest and greatest good, so that we can know peace and joy in our soul. For when we follow our passion, we indeed find our purpose and then our world all at once makes perfect sense. Dive deep…
Each day the sun rises and we begin anew. The light of the morning begins to warm our bodies and soothe our souls. Our breath flows and we see the wonders of the universe around us. In the passage of the night we not only sleep, but dream, and restore our most delicate spirits, downloading all that we need to assess, sort out, file, and gain perspective on, giving us the opportunity to reset our hearts, and be ready to meet the morning and the next set of emotional, spiritual, and physical tests that await us.

We all see our world the way we want it to be. We color our days with the words and images that reinforce our idea of what we think our life should be like. But what we really need to do is see our world as it is. This means really being in the present moment, really understanding what each moment offers. This is what being present is about -opening your eyes – opening your heart – opening every cell in your body to whatever the experience you are living may be. (more…)
We all have an idea of what our life should look like – what we should look like, who we should be with, what kind of job we should have, how much money we should have, what kind of house we should live in…. These are the tapes that we have been playing on both a conscious and subconscious level throughout our lives. But the key word in all that I just said is “should” – and by placing those limits, goals, and beliefs in that context, we are doomed to judge and probably fail ourselves. So how do we move past those prescriptives that we have set? How do we find that equilibrium between what our mind constructs and what actually is? (more…)
Revelations are the keys to our change. They allow us to see our world with clarity through the veil of haze and fog – so thick and dense that we often feel like we are gasping for breath. And breathing is critical. Deep, resonant, soul filling breaths that nourish and assist us in moving through our blocks, enabling us to first profoundly feel those things that have been scaffolding us yet now need to be torn down, or out, or apart, so that we may shed tears and release those aspects that tie and bind us to the present, or past, that stop us from shifting to our next shape.
But we indeed shift. We transform ourselves from what we were to what we are to what we want to be, what we dream to be. We shift as the tides shift the sand. The waves of life sculpt our shorelines and reveal the very foundations that lay beneath our deep, dark, still waters.
We do not magically take our new shapes. It is only through great courage and determination that we can search deeply in our hearts for the forgiveness and love necessary to evolve and embody our truest forms.
