I got up at sunrise this morning. A quick jog down to the ocean found me swimming with seals, basking in the morning sun.
The exact moment i finished swimming and pulled my clothes back on a women came and sat on the beach a short distance away.
As I passed her we greeted one another. She was an elder native woman, who’d lived in this area her whole life.
Her name was Dorthy, my grandmothers name. She shared with me about the healing power of the water that her elders taught. She said to always take care of myself and never look back, always forward.
I shared a blessing with her and she returned one. We hugged and wished each other goodness. And I walked away to explore the rest of the historic beach front town of Cowichan Bay.
A few weeks ago, I was perched on what looked like a dangerous presipus. I had all my things packed at my place and was ripe for adventure.
On my way to Shambala, western Canada’s biggest electronic music festival, with the intent of flowing into a new life from there. I hesitated many times, fear coming through in waves. I leapt.
I now find myself on Vancouver Island after two years in my hometown of Edmonton. Two years of facing my deepest fears. Confronted with all my insecurities, life wearing away all the jagged edges of my conditioning and that which had been passed to me through my ancestry.
It was, at times, hell.
And now I’ve taken this leap, yet again. A deep fear of losing my ground after wandering Canada for 2 years. I have to a great degree, faced this deep seated fear.
To find myself rising with the sun, on the coast, swimming with the seals is a radical shift in my life.
Last night I facilitated a healing session with a man, whereby we were able to release the tension in his shoulder that he’d been carrying for 15 years.
My healing gifts are beginning to blossom. Tempered in the fires of hell.
I don’t imagine a future without difficulty, but I see that the dark night has ended and the sun rises again.
