I knew I needed to come home, to visit you. Every picture of you in all your glory beckoned me – adrenaline pumping, stomach delighted. Yet I trudged around in daily life, wondering why I felt so heavy.
Finally, I listened; heeded the call and went to you. As soon as I caught sight of you, a smile from deep within overtook my countenance. I neared the water’s edge and you breathed new life into my lungs, my body. The sound of waves crashing, rays of sun shimmering on your surface, the smell of salt were all vibrations of pure divinity.
As soon as I could set my things down I went to you, submerged my body in yours. Oneness.
I welcomed your blessings while discarding that which I no longer felt useful. Facing your gentle waves I embraced love, healing, confidence, joy, energy. Facing the shore, I sent out sadness, doubt, fear, uncertainty, praying for their transmutation for the highest good of all.
I whispered a prayer of thanks and retreated to the kiss of the evening sun. Feet white with sugary sand. Body lounging. Warming.
Deep sleep awaited me at home and awoke in the morning, light! Refreshed! Feeling more like me than I have in months.
I almost forgot her. Me, I mean, goddess that I am.
Mother Ocean, thank you for pulling out my burdens and filling me back up with love.
