Sun, Salt Water, and Sand……….It’s Good For the Soul
Never underestimate the power of a beach full of sand, a whole lot of sun, a tad bit of wind, and the rolling waves of the ocean. Our earth and the heavens provides us with the perfect antidote for stress, angst, and energy we have no idea what to do with.
I went to the beach recently for the sole purpose of clearing my energy field. It is one of my favorite ways to release all the crap that builds up from time to time. I began by wading into the ocean to my knees. As the waves came in, I imagined dumping all the emotions I wanted to get rid of into the ocean. I envisioned all the gunk riding the waves as they rolled on out. With each wave in I would dump and with each wave out I said goodbye to what was not mine to hold on to anymore.
I ran my hands along the tops of the waves and used the salt water to continue to clear both my upper body and my mind as I rubbed my wet hands up and down my arms and across my shoulders. Salt water is an excellent clearing agent. The negative ions help clear not only the body but it helps to align the soul.
As I sat on the beach, I used the earth to balance me. I breathed in her energy and anchored it into my heart. I exhaled deeply to connect my energy to hers, breathing deeply allowing the Earth’s electromagnetic field to recalibrate my energy. I dug my toes into the earth and welcomed the warmth as I thanked the sun for warming the sand.
A bit later I walked along the shore letting the waves wash against my legs and felt the wind in my face. I let the elements of fire, earth, wind, air, and water do their magic to balance, ground, and center me. Granted I am a water sign, In fact, I am so watery I drip, so going to the ocean is like going home. I am in my element when I am at the beach. I drink in the smells, and become mesmerized by the sounds of the waves. It is effortless to let the ocean, wind, and sand do its thing.
I am fortunate to be able to live within driving distance to the sea and often suggest to my clients to use the elements of the sand, salt water, and wind to help clear them. In fact I escorted a client to the beach recently where we completed a ceremony to let go of an ex-boyfriend.
For those who don’t have the luxury of going to the ocean, try taking a shower with a salt scrub, or go to the grocery store and buy inexpensive fine grain sea salt, Turn this into a ceremony or ritual by lighting candles and turning off the lights, play soft music or the sounds of the ocean and let the water and salt mix together to clear and cleanse.
Never underestimate the power of water, salt, and sand. All are very useful when releasing what no longer serves. They lighten the load, and feed your soul.
