Embrace the Tides of your Life

Embrace the Tides of your Life

We can learn a lot from the ocean but what stood out to me today as I was walking along the beach recording a meditation for one of my clients, was the tides. High tide, low tide and that in between transition period are so much like our lives. We have times when we’re busier, work is going well, romance is exciting and money is flowing abundantly – our own personal high tides. Then we have times where things don’t seem to be going our way, we are experiencing difficulties or perhaps just not seeing a lot of action in our lives – our low tides. Yet the ocean doesn’t worry during a low tide if it will ever be high tide again, it knows that for every low tide, comes a high tide. What if you started to embrace the tides of your life with total trust that for as far as the tide went out it would always come back in? It would allow you to be at peace exactly where you are. Our lives are like the tides, they have their own ebbs and flow yet unlike nature we tend to fight the tide. We push, we get frustrated with ourselves – we’re trying to direct the ocean and we wonder why we feel so exhausted and depleted! I spent years pushing for a high tide, I pushed so hard I could never even tell when it actually came. It wasn’t until I got so exhausted, so depleted from all this forcing that I had to completely surrender – I stopped fighting the tides and just floated with them. What do you know, I started experiencing more high tides than ever before. I embraced the high tides (filming in LA, getting a bunch of clients, doing speaking engagements) and I cherished my low tides when things slowed down and I enjoyed the down time. I relaxed, I rested, I gave birth to new creative endeavors and I was able to restore my energy because I knew that a high tide was just around the corner. My life flows like the ocean and I no longer see one tide as better than another but both important parts to the ebb and flow that is my life! Xo, C ✨#LightMaker #oceanmusings
