I love sitting with the ocean. At the moment I am in Lecheo, Greece and while it is still too cold to swim, the ocean is absolutely beautiful. There is something so comforting, peaceful and relaxing about it. When I was sitting there today, on a rock, that seemed just the perfect size and shape, watching the waves, I could feel such a strong connection to everything around. I started to thank the rock for supporting me, the earth for holding me, the ocean for drawing me into her infinity and the wind for gently stroking me. Tears. Gratitude.
Do you ever feel the buzzing of the earth, when you stand on her? Its such a powerful feeling I find. While sitting there and getting still, I could listen to the earth, to the rock, I was sitting on and the beautiful waves. So powerful. They were all there supporting me. Connecting with me, if I was willing to listen. They really are our teachers. Some of us feel, some of us hear or see, smell or taste, whatever your way of perceiving is, it is such a lovely way of meditating, getting still. Inviting whats around you inside. The ocean out there was just like the ocean inside me. An ocean of infinity. An ocean in my heart… Microcosmos and Macrocosmos. No difference.
If you sit really still, you can feel the vibration of the earth. You can feel her inside your system. You can even picture her inside your system, if you like. It is such a powerful connection, that can teach us so much. We become more present. We are here, present and within us at the same time. That`s what we are here for, to be here. To be present here.
I invite you to take a few minutes, when you walk down the street, maybe you even have a chance to be on the earth, grass, sand, at the ocean, or a lake…that`ll make it easier. But even on concrete. Get still, maybe sit down. Take a few moments and feel into your body. Notice what you are standing or sitting on, feel into it. You might feel the urge to give a thank you for the support. Then feel into the vibration of your surroundings. You are soaking it up. Can you feel it filling your body? Or can you hear or see it? Picture the energy of the earth enter into your feet and body and fill you completely. A beautiful, gentle buzzing. Feel the wind and air around you. You can picture the ocean, the rocks or trees, whatever is around you, even a little grass or flower coming out between the concrete, picture them in your heart. Feel them in your heart. Listen to them in your heart. Allow them to fill your whole body with their energy, their wisdom and their love. It feels like love to me. The pure, raw energy. The energy everything is made of.
