I’m not really a believer of past lives and reincarnation, but if I did I can almost guarantee that those past lives would include living on the ocean (most likely in Polynesia) and a life lived in the mountains (Glacier NP area or Canadian Rockies?). Either of those two types of areas just feel like home.
Today I was blessed to be on the ocean. It was one of the first times when I wasn’t nervous about our boys and could take a deep breath and truly relax. Instead of reading or swimming I laid on my back, looked up at the clouds, and just listened to the beautifully rhythmic crashing of the surf.
After a while I went into the water. It took a little while to get used to the cold water, but once I did I again completely relaxed. As Dominic rode his boogie board I just floated in the ocean.
My gaze was fixed on the never ending horizon, my thoughts were only on the beauty of the crystal blue water, and I was as immersed in the present moment as I was in the ocean. As the waves came in I bobbed up with them. When the past wave was being drawn back into the sea I floated back with it. I was cradled by the cool water around me and moved by it. To be honest, I couldn’t even begin to guess how long I was floating there like that. My head, heart, and soul were totally at peace and full of joy as the sun warmed my face.
There’s such power within water – physically and spiritually. Today I am so grateful for the opportunity to be surrounded by it and moved by it.
