The Sea of Self

Beach Sunset

Call of the Ocean

It was a spontaneous decision to head down to the beach on a Sunday afternoon to be near water, out in nature where I love to be! The last few months and even beyond have seen many challenges, a lot of stress and feeling exhausted. Whenever challenges have been present in my life I have always felt the need to go to the beach or be near water. They are places of restoration and rejuvenation for me.

Off I headed feeling a sense of freedom, tranquility and peace beginning to descend within me as I drove there.

As I walked along the path to the beach a lone Ibis was walking on the grass alongside the path. I have never seen an Ibis down at the beach before so instinctively I knew to take notice! Whenever I see an Ibis I always feel it is a message from the Egyptian God Thoth and so it was on this occasion too. Maybe this time I might listen and take heed of the message!

Seat of Stillness

I looked for a place to be on the sand, there lo and behold was a park bench sitting against the brick wall of the surf club. Such a perfect place to park myself to gaze at the ocean and simply be! A time to be in the stillness, the silence and be at one with Nature!

There were quite a people at the beach as it was a warm afternoon, whilst I noticed the activity in my surroundings knowing I was amongst it all, it felt like I was the only one there. I could feel a deeper connection taking place and the nature spirits were there too.

Sinking deeper into a meditative state as I gently dug my feet further into the soft white sand, connecting to Mother Earth. As I did so I sensed the energy of the water, the sand, the gentle soft breeze, the light of the sun and the blue sky above me. The energy became alive in a way I have not experienced before. A symphony of nature’s rhythms and vibrations in these moments, nothing else existed only the feeling of oneness with nature. I had a front row seat to experience this sound and light show.

Pathway of Light

My gaze then became transfixed on the sun’s golden rays spilling on to the water, a pathway of golden light. As I breathed in the ocean air, filling my lungs, as I did so, connecting with the golden rays of the sun, this light feeding my soul. The sun had a message Follow the pathway of Light for You are the light of the Sun.

The sun became a mirror reflecting back to me. I heard another message from the sun, As you see the eternal light in me see the eternal light in you. The light of me, the Sun, fanning the flame of light within you.
It is interesting because we are in the month of November which is the 11th month of the year. The two ones are like pillars facing each other representing facing the mirror of our selves. This is a good month to look at your reflection and what is being reflected back to you. Reflecting your inner and outer world. A time to overcome those tests, challenges and obstacles opening you up to positive change and growth, reflecting the true you!

Healing waters

There is something healing about water or being near water, whether it is the ocean, lake, river or any body of water. Emotional healing as water represents our emotions and our physical body is 90% water. As I connected to the still waters of the ocean, the golden light on the water held a message this time saying What emotions need to be brought to the surface of your inner sea? Shine the light on your emotions. What wisdoms do they have for you? Be in acceptance of all that arises, without judgement of self.

As I went deeper into my physical body feeling the waves of emotions within, those of being overwhelmed, of sadness, my own emotional waves choppy, a feeling of disconnection. I noticed thoughts arising and the feelings that go with those. I allowed the ocean’s waters to connect with mine, balancing and soothing my emotional waters. The waves reminding me to allow the emotions to simply roll and melt into the sand cleansed by the sea water.

Then the vision of another landscape opened up! I am transported back to the shores of a lake in Egypt, El Fayoum, taking me back to those healing waters, an oasis in the desert. Healing the emotional desert that we all find ourselves visiting, not once, but many times as we seek to master our emotions on our journey to the mastery of Self.

I also see sparkles of light dancing on the water saying come dance the joy of life. Come dance the joy of Self. I can feel sparkly water inside me, sparkles of love from the greater ocean of Love that unites us all.

Then before I know it I am feeling the sensation of the seat beneath me again, my heart filling with joy from both lands, an expanded state of being and the light within me burning bright! A sense of calm and peace pervading me.

Letting Go

Letting Go, surrendering to the ebb and flow of life, following the divine pathway of light to the Sea of Self. The ocean we hold within us in our heart space, the sea of our hearts. A place we can connect into any time we choose. A place where we can dive deep into the waters of our emotional self, discovering our hidden treasures and dissolving those we no longer need. Ones that set us free from the strong currents and tides of emotional baggage that no longer serve us. 
So, next time you are feeling emotional chaos, turmoil or challenges find a body of water to connect with in nature and allow the healing to begin!

Did I get the message from the Ibis? Yes! as you can see by this post I am back to writing!

Much love and light

Gateway to Self

Orbs of light
Kim Wrightson Photography (c)

Yesterday I had a feeling to take a walk around the swamp! As I headed out the time on my phone was 11:11! Now this is a significant number sequence and I felt I was about to go through a gateway. The nature reserve where the swamp is located is like entering another world so I wondered what would be in store for me! 

As I commenced walking down to the swamp I began to chant silently a mantra of purification as I normally do to make sure my energies are clear before I enter this sacred land. 

Entering the reserve, I felt the energy was very different to previous times. It was so quiet with an air of stillness I had not experienced before. As I walked along one of the limestone pathways the sun beckoned me, stopping to take a photo, it was hard to see as the light was so bright, point and click it was! Each step I took I could feel myself sinking further into the stillness, within me and around me, becoming One with nature. 

Just before walking across the boardwalk a large dragonfly flew in front of me and my heart opened wide, with the dragonfly saying take notice of me please! Which I duly did! As I rounded the corner, the pathway opens to an expansive array of beautiful shades of green, most notably lime green, in various textures of reeds, grasses and trees. In the stillness I received the message “ Be open to embracing all the changes, new experiences, people and possibilities that are about to come forth.” 

I felt such a lightness of being connecting with the expansive blue sky that just seemed to go on forever showing me we truly are limitless beings and abundance is everywhere. 

Walking through the archway of trees on the other side both to my delight and surprise was a lone Ibis! I love seeing these birds so I stood in stillness observing the beauty of this bird. The Ibis is associated with the Egyptian God Thoth, so whenever I see the Ibis I feel Thoth is around and sure enough there was a message for me. I felt so blessed. 

I decided to walk a different path to explore part of the reserve I had never been to before, which took me to some historical buildings. Propped up on one side of a building was the top of an old windmill. I love windmills, those that feature on many Australian farms. They remind me of times growing up, trips to the bush and the short time I lived in the country as a child. I always feel there is something magical about them. Now windmills are to do with the wind and wind is associated with the mind. Transformation of mind! Like the wind clearing out the mind of all the clutter, thoughts etc. creating spaces where there is no mind. 

When I turned to retrace my steps back to the main path a whole new vista panned out in front of me. Sometimes we need to take detours, change our tracks, get out of our comfort zones, change our habits of doing the same thing the same way, take a step back, viewing our challenges and perceived obstacles in a new light.  How we view our Self and life changes with new possibilities. 

I felt like I was seeing this place with new eyes. I could feel my being expand with an aura of aliveness and joy!

With a new inner outlook, I crossed the bridge where beneath it flowed the sparkly water with the light bouncing off it. As I took time to gaze into the sparkles of watery light my emotional body felt sparkly and revitalised too! It felt like I had crossed another bridge to myself feeling a sense of emotional blocks clearing as water represents our emotions and also the subconscious mind. 

Further along the pathway I was looking at the shadows on the ground noticing something interesting. I took a photo seeing the image of a woman holding a child. Prior to this I had been thinking of Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene and the song Let It Be has been coming to me on and off since my return from my Egypt trip in Feb/March. Embrace the divine feminine and listen to the wisdoms. Nurture and love the inner child. Can you see it??

Before this occurred, a Monarch butterfly fluttered past me almost alighting on me but not quite and my heart opened wide again! Saying I’m here please take notice of me! Which I did! Dragonflies and butterflies symbolise transformation and change, amongst other things. 

Throughout my walk there were wisps of Dandelion seed heads floating all around. Softly carried by the gentle breeze that was blowing. Little puffs of clouds saying “Your wishes and dreams come true, when you are true to Self” 

Never give up on your dreams. Dreams may change however I believe it so important to have dreams. Allowing those dreams to come into existence. It doesn’t matter how big or small they are. Hold them in your heart, believe in yourself, do the inner work, raise your vibration aligning your Self with that which is meant for you. Be you! Be the best version of you. Never give up cos it means giving up on your Self as Your Self has so much to bring to the world.

Before I left the nature reserve I stopped near a few trees looking up seeing the sun shining through the leaves. I was guided to take a photo where a beautiful pink orb of unconditional, divine love – the love and wisdom of the divine Mother and Father appeared. It is interesting that my walk began and ended with the orbs of light and love. The cycle of life is all about the circle of love and how much love we are willing to allow our Self and all beings for we are all connected in this amazing tapestry of humanity.

I am so grateful for all the signs around me, particularly the ones that cross my path in nature. Take note of the messages they bring for they can assist you along your soul’s pathway giving you insights and clues. All you need to do is observe, listen, go within and be aware of the messages being conveyed to you. There are many sites that offer information on animal, bird, insect symbolism. One I use is 

The overall messages the signs of nature were sharing with me. Transformation begins and ends with the Self, transforming mind, body, emotions and spirit. I had walked through a gateway to Self. We are not our body, emotions, thoughts or our stories. When we reside in the heart of Self, in the now, we are one with All and all is love and light and this is where the magic happens!

Much love and light to you all!

Messages from the Flower Devas - Keeper of the Wisdom - Red Hibiscus

The season of Autumn is when we bloom most proficiently, as this is the season of letting go of all the old, however you can tune in anytime to our energies to initiate those changes you would like to create!

It is time to plant the new seeds of creation, time to open to your passionate self, connecting with the divine energies of Heaven's light, anchoring these seeds of creation, higher divine wisdoms, to be made manifest in the physical world, the creation of your own heaven on earth.

As you continually purify and ground your true essence, expanding your levels of consciousness, reaching and connecting with the divine energies of Christ consciousness, allow these to spiral down your central column activating all chakras, passing through your purified and balanced base chakra, the base of creation, anchoring you to Mother Earth, allowing all to become manifest in your world.

Remember balance is the key as you activate your passionate true self. You are a container of joyous light that dances and spirals out, touching and inspiring others to be all they can be as you become all you can be!
