I was at the sea on a warm Autumn day after visiting a baby at the local children's hospital – The experience was very hard to undergo because of the desperation written in the faces of the mothers and the crying children. They are all from very poor backgrounds and look completely helpless in the face of serious disease. After the visit I felt a strong urge to go to the sea to let Mother Earth teach me how to deal with this experience.
As I sat and watched the waves I thought about both my children so far away - one in Australia and one in Spain, and how the mothers of the sick babies must feel when they feel they can do nothing for their children. My daughter is having a particularly difficult time right now and I feel the need to help her. This was the problem I gave to Mother Earth.
The attractions I sensed where myriad...the sound and smell of the sea, the call of the seagulls, the rustling foam spreading over the black rocks and the irresistible pull of the sea to the waves. The water is very cold down here - numbs the feet, but gives a sense of clarity as well. I didn't go right in!
To sense the essence of the sea is overpowering. I felt a connection with all the oceans on the planet - in fact the sea is all one - only humans name different areas of it. I knew that the drop of water leaving my hands would carry a blessing through the essence of the water to both my children. I felt lighter and more confident of my connection with them through my connection to the water. I was taught - "All things/people are connected. There is no separation but your thinking makes it so."
The same wonderful energy that moves the waves moves inside us if we only acknowledge it. It can be used for anything - from healing sick babies and soothing mothers' worries to regenerating the parts of the earth that have suffered the depredations of human beings.
A REACTION: Most moving after the activity was a mother telling me privately in front of her daughter and husband..."You don't know how much you have helped her (the daughter)...You will never know how much you have helped her...We just picked her up from the hospital three days ago to bring her down here...She was in the hospital because she tried to commit suicide and you have given her a new life!" Earth is an amazing Healer
