Stormy weather. Our lives are filled with emotional turbulence. Fierce winds blow, the seas swell, the skies blacken.
Swimming through the currents of life can be quite difficult at times. The turbulent waters can be challenging, the rough and choppy rushing of the waves can undermine the strongest of foundations, testing our resolve, our confidence, and our very outlook. Not one of us is immune to the tangled ropes, the discomfort of walking rocky shores, the sting of seaweed wrapped around our mermaid forms, or even the bite from a fellow soul of the sea. Yet despite the… Read more »
I am of the sea, my body sea foam and sparkling algae, rises to the surface each time the sun greets the waves’ cresting arch. I am of the sea, I am water through and through, I glide, I shimmer, I float. I ride the ebbs and flows, I am carried as a child in its mother’s womb, the tide, washing me out and ashore cleansing all that is not necessary, all that does not belong to water, out… Read more »
The Law of Attraction works in mysterious ways. I have recently recognized how many women have come into my life, how many mermaids have swum into my cove, how many of us share the same emotional collective consciousness of experience, betrayal, and doubts to our self worth, all under the auspices of relationships and love. Like attracts like, positive attracts positive… and though we all did not necessarily recognize the why of our initial connection, it is clear now that… Read more »
“I’m not a girl. I’m a storm with skin.” That’s me. I am an ever-changing emotional weather system. My moods and outlook shift like the winds, one minute I am brimming with bright, smiley happiness, and the next I am a sorrowful, depleted and tearful shell of myself. I think I have always been like this – high-strung, sensitive, emotional. Things tend to always really affect me. And as the Mermaid that I am, I swim to the depths of… Read more »
I confess. Though I have always loved and now live by the sea, with the exception of my toes touching the water on a rare occasion, I have not immersed myself in the ocean in quite some time. My husband would agree that it has been years since I have playfully surfed the waves and swam out from the shore to drift in solitude and allow the gentle waves to carry me. This all changed today. I am the Mermaid… Read more »
Into your heart and soul you must dive deeply and fearlessly. There is no other way. I often think about my childhood – diving into the swimming pool, plunging into the ocean from the perfect perch on our family’s sailboat. I was so courageous then. I would stand, planning my smooth entrance into the water, taking in the other divers around me, watching how the sunlight bounced off the bottom, reflecting back to me all my bravado and beckoning to… Read more »
I have always loved the sea. From my tender years, I would feel the salt-spray on my skin, taste the warm Biscayne Bay waters that would come to help soothe me, and inhale the air that filled me with energy and perspective. Boating, sailing in particular, has always been an important part of my life. I was my own master on my sailing vessels, pointing to catch the wind so that I could race as fast as I could, feeling… Read more »
