While I was in Florida, I walked the beach and collected seashells. A few were conical shaped, but not brilliantly hued. I learned that most of the seashells they sold in the shops were actually from Indonesia and the Philippines. I'd love to visit there and simply walk the beaches and collect some of those shells. They're so beautiful.
I also did some meditation, even said a few prayers. Lightwork never ends. :) The ocean is so healing and magical. I always feel revitalized after spending time by the sea.
You can experience the magic of the sea right at home. Take a few seashells and scatter them in a circle around a blue candle. Add a little sand to your circle if you have any. Notice the patterns and whorls on your shells, the way they repeat and go inward. Breathe deep. Now focus on the candle's flame and then close your eyes. Picture yourself by the seashore, picking up those shells, letting the sea spray mist your feet, legs, and arms. Hear the rolling waves as they come ashore. Can you smell the suntan lotion? Feel the warmth of the sun on your face?
Ahh, I think you can! Once the picture is complete in your mind's eye, ask for nature's healing gift from the sea. The words need not rhyme, only be heartfelt. Now snuff the candle. Do this sea magic exercise anyime you feel stressed or tense.
To help you along, I will send one lucky winner a bag of natural seashells along with a small magnetic dolphin wind chime, and a copy of my ebook Soul of The Sea.
