Why the picture of a Whale you may be asking? Bear with me. Several days ago, during the period of waking fully I heard/saw ‘a Circle of Mermaids’. I was a little nonplussed at first but then it hit me ~ when you connect with, or travel to meet the Grandmothers they appear in circle! So it was that I thought, well they must be showing me themselves in that form ~ as a circle of mermaids and I felt they must have something they wished to impart or give me. They had indeed.
So it was that I journeyed to the Grandmothers. It all started with a walk on the beach (something I am truly craving during this time of imposed lockdown). I walked into the sea and swam, far out amongst the rolling waves. I was guided to just allow myself to float, to feel the ebb and flow of the tide and feel the support the water was giving me. I was told to allow myself to be held, and to go with the flow. I knew the Grandmothers were with me, but I couldn’t see them on this occasion. After a time I was guided to swim to a rock formation which seemed to appear from nowhere. I climbed up upon it and laid down. I could feel the warm sun nurturing and warming me and beneather the support of the rock and with that support came the feeling of immense grounding with the Earth. The next thing I knew, I was back upon the beach but somehow, I knew it wasn’t quite done. This is where the Whale comes in…
I had a strong urge to doodle with my chalks and the above image came out. A beautiful whale, diving back down under the waves and with it came these words…
Mother Whale ~ all at sea.
All at sea as she should be.
Held and nurtured by the tide.
Food to be found, places to hide.
In the watery vastness of the sea,
Go with the flow, that’s the key.
Mother Whale diving in and through each vast wave.
Flowing with it, Her energy she’ll save.
Travelling far and wide, this great mammal of the sea.
Be grateful for Her presence.
Acknowledge Her, just Be,
At one with Her, at one with the sea.
Quietly mindful, right now, is the way to be.
