Today the river called to me, it called to me, to come and cleanse myself. To anoint myself with it's sacred water and to allow all that I have carried, to be washed away. It called to me so that I may have the time to sit and listen, to the sound of the water meandering past, allowing the thoughts that have weighted me down to follow that same course and be dispersed out to sea.
Water helps us to bring about change, it is the element of our inner self, of our feelings and our desires that influence our thoughts and actions. Water inspires us to release and let go, to allow our inner selves to flow. Water encourages us to share how we are feeling and to share our emotions, our pain and our joy. It inspires us to surrender to the natural cycle that all life undertakes.
To not forget who we really are. We are beings of love and we need to let go of any negative and unwanted thoughts and behaviours, so that we can move forward and embrace the natural flow of life. Embrace all of our emotions, because they are here to teach and guide us, all we need to do is, acknowledge and honour them. Acknowledge and honour them and then let them go.
When we allow ourselves to embrace and fully feel our emotions, we can then move forward into a place of love, kindness and appreciation. We then generate these emotions and as a result we can then send them out into the world, we generate and we allow them to flow through us and out into the world. This to me is magic, magic that we can all create, something that we can all do in order to help change the way we view ourselves, the way we view others and the way we view the world. Sending out our appreciation for all that has graced our life, taking the time to stop and listen to the magically sounds that surround us, taking the time to stop and appreciate those people within our lives. Imagine doing this everyday, every morning when you wake up, imagine the way, in which your your day would progress!
Everything in nature flows, from the seasonal changes , to the natural cycles. When we allow ourselves to experience those changes, we allow ourselves to be in flow. We are meant to feel the cold and the heat. We are meant to know whether our moon is waxing or waning. We are meant to age, to age naturally and embrace all the changes our bodies go under. We are meant to be in contact with our natural environment, to recognize the smells carried in the wind, to feel the difference in air temperature, to understand the effects that the moon has on us. We are meant to feel that connection.
Water knows no boundaries, it is all about being open and accepting. When we are being open then we allow things to flow into our lives naturally. We have faith in the fact that we create our own reality and that what we put out into the world, is that which we receive back. But we have to be receptive to those things, we have to be like water. Water creates the doorway, for our dreams and our visions. We have to be receptive and Accepting of the things that come in your path. We do not need to like them, but we do need to accept them, because that which comes to us, comes for a reason. Perhaps it is an opportunity to heal something from our past, or something new to create for our future. But if we do not create the doorway we will miss that opportunity, so create the doorway and keep it open.
Today the river called me, and I answered that call. I went to one of my favorite spots and allowed the magic of nature to wash over me, allowed it to cleanse me. So today I give thanks to the river, for reminding me to be open and receptive, to allow my emotions to flow and embrace the change that is occurring within my life. To remember that we can generate a flow of positive life enhancing emotions and that in generating that flow we can then send it out into the world.
