Early morning light has a way of seeping through the cracks in your personal mask and soaking deep into your soul. Then it pools and warms you from the inside out. What a gift from the universe. We orbit this huge ball of fire and yet we take it for granted or worry that it will burn us up as we destroy the protective layer around us.
Yet at 5am in the stillness and the peace of the beach it takes on a whole new persona. Gently it takes some of our aching parts and, if you let it, starts healing the deep aches within.
I have said it before but it wont hurt to say it again… Feet on the sand in the sea in the soft morning light is the best medicine for everything. YES, everything looks a little clearer, feels a little gentler. The internal noise volume goes down.
So today people allow the soft light of this new day to soak in no matter where you are. And remember you are not alone. We are all riding this beautiful orb as it travels through space and time.
Be kind to each other. Peace and light Ali xx
November 1 2015 how did we find ourselves here..
The year has slipped by, time does that when you are not paying attention. It has been a time of events that make me reflect on my mortality. My Dad, who has been my trail blazer, has stumbled this year. Several strokes, heart attack and now more strokes. He is still with us but time now seems to have taken on a new meaning. Fleeting at best. He is his funny storytelling self yet other parts of him seem to be slowing to an almost halt. Time to record some of those epic tales as it will be like capturing a piece of him for ever.
He taught us all to love the sea. Lights beach was calling my name this morning and for the first time in a while I felt the need to go and walk. To feel the sand beneath my feet and breathe in the salty air that grounds us and stills my racing mind.
Sea water has a way of sucking out the stress and filling you with a clarity of thought. 5:30am delivers a quiet where few venture onto the beach. Those who do are rewarded with intangible gifts to the soul.
May we all reflect on what is important and what brings us back to being true to ourselves.
Peace and Light.. Ali xxx
