Set Your Vibration

set your vibration to receive love copy

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.

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.

I Am of The Sea

i am laid out in my full glorious form

 

I am of the sea,

my body

sea foam and sparkling algae,

rises to the surface

each time the sun

greets the waves’ cresting arch.

I am of the sea,

I am water through and through,

I glide,

I shimmer,

I float.

I ride the ebbs and flows,

I am carried as a child in its mother’s womb,

the tide, washing me out and ashore

cleansing all that is not necessary,

all that does not belong to water,

out of me.

The tide rolls in and kisses the shore,

and I am laid out in my full glorious form,

wrung through the layers of sea and sand,

each granule and drop tells me a secret,

tells me from where my soul comes.

I dance as the water crests in the light,

I bounce and jump

delighting in the charged water

that gives life

and peace

and love.

I am at home in the ocean,

I am at ease with the tides,

I am of the sea.

Water Note #5

don't just tread water.jpgSometimes I feel stuck and that I am not able to break free of the patterns and thoughts that keep me from moving forward. It feels like I am just treading water – keeping my head just above the surface… just enough so that I can see things around me and breathe. But that is not what I want my life to be. I want to move forward, swim into the currents of all life has to offer. I want to splash in the ebbs and flows of the tides, feel all the joy and love. I want to swim in the sea of life!

Just Dive In!

Into your heart and soul you must dive deeply and fearlessly.  There is no other way.  I often think about my childhood – diving into the swimming pool, plunging into the ocean from the perfect perch on our family’s sailboat.  I was so courageous then.  I would stand, planning my smooth entrance into the water, taking in the other divers around me, watching how the sunlight bounced off the bottom, reflecting back to me all my bravado and beckoning to me to just dive in.
