When swimming against the tide means going against the flow
One way to Light up your Life with Spirit and follow your dreams!
To follow our dreams, we have to nurture them first of all. So we also need learn to stand up for ourselves. The term 'go with the flow' has become a bit of an anthem. But we have to learn to swim, and then find our own natural flow in the first place. This very often means going against the tide of popular belief to stand in your own light, but is nonetheless very liberating.
We've just been to see 'Salmon Fishing in the Yemen'. It's a film with hidden depths. On the surface a boy meets girl adventure in an exotic location, but this film says much more about life and spirituality than I at first gave it credit for.
In the film, a wealthy Yemeni sheikh has a dream: to bring salmon fishing to his country. The sheikh goes against the tide of his countryman's beliefs (and most other people as well) to manifest his dream, just as salmon swim back up river to their spawning grounds against the natural flow of the water.
Life does have its own ebb and flow, and we have to learn to dance to our own beat. Most of us have a innate fear of being different. This sometimes goes back to past lives and the sacrifices we made to express our individuality.
These days meditation is freely available and is a wonderful way of reconnecting to our sense of Self. It teaches us to realign with our Spirit by working with life's natural ebb and flow, a bit like peeling back the layers of an onion. One way of doing this is by working with the cycles of the moon, so that we begin 'to remember' who we are; (spirit in a human overcoat)
I am really excited about my full moon meditation course, which begins here in Hemel Hempstead on Tuesday 8th. May at 7.30p.m. Meditation has taught me so much about self-belief and self-expression. And its only when we know our self-worth that we can truly begin to manifest the life we are meant to manifest. So why not come along if you are in the area and give it a go. You will be working alongside like minded people in a safe environment. Each evening there will be a total of three meditations based on the energy of the moon in particular. These energies build one on the other. The following day you will receive the main meditation on MP3 player to use at your leisure, and deepen your understanding of Spirit, and what you are here to achieve.
