Yes, we have all been to the beach, I suppose.
However, on a spiritual retreat when you sit upon the sand facing the ocean, something happens. It is like the cosmos lines up just right allowing universal energies to align and flow down like never before, shinning new energies upon you. As if to work collaboratively and on a different set of clock-works, everything around you shifts and changes. A shell on the beach is no longer just a shell, but rather a sponge of energy soaking up your fear; a bird flying by is no longer just a scavenger looking for lunch but rather a master teacher unlocking ancient secrets that are whispered to you by his delicate moves and gestures. The crashing waves on the shore and even the color of the water reflect the perfect balance of the universe, of heaven and of earth, which you see again in the animated sky. Secrets of the universe open themselves to you, changing the way you will see yourself and feel about yourself forever. Is the group’s energy? Is it a synchronistic day or something else?
Yes, we have all been to the ocean, I suppose, but the doors to heaven don’t always swing open. We don’t always feel the love of God in the warm and loving embrace of the thick and rich air on the beach. No, generally we only dream of being rejuvenated by nature in our best meditations. We only pray to feel the love of our Source’s embrace when we are in a deep and altered state. But here we experience divinity in our hearts, bodies and souls with every breath and every glance around us as heaven becomes more and more palpable.
Day one leaves us remembering what it is like to feel alive, to know that we are a part of life, not separate, and to feel free. Their is a welcome feeling of relief and relaxation as we release the tight grip on life we didn’t realize we held; the will that we unconsciously force to try to keep our lives working finally relaxes, releasing our energy. We, of course, had not realized that we were clenching our energy or that it only ages and exhausts us. The relief is tremendous, whether we are unconsciously aware or not, we know now that we are back in God’s good grace. Then we realize that there is no such thing and that life and our Source Energy only hold the energies of love and joy for us and that our grip on life is what has kept us out of heaven. That night, realizing that all is well, we all sleep well, like babies.
Day two will take us deep into the Mayan Caribbean jungle and one of the sacred sites, either to the pyramid of Coba, Chichen Itza or Ek’Baalam where the energy will run even deeper. Can you imagine what energies will align and unlock for us here?
Needless to say, after a retreat no one is ever the same because their energy is raised and the many windows of heavenly energy they have opened have allowed a new flow of love and light into their lives illuminating them like never before.
