Simple Seaside Magic

The summer is a perfect time for a little seaside magic.  For one thing, all the elements are present – the sun is fire, the sand is earth, the breeze is air, and of course you have water!  For another, the sound of the waves already put you in a natural meditative state.  You can use this relaxed yet aware state (also known as “Alpha”) to visualize what you want to bring into your life.

One way to add power to your visualization is to create a symbol for it.  This could be very simple, as in a heart for love or a dollar sign for money, or something more complex that holds a personal meaning for you.  You can then pick up a shell or rock and draw that symbol into the sand where the ocean meets the shore.  This is most powerful right before high tide comes in (you can easily find out the time of high tide from the newspaper or internet).  Allow the ocean to “take” your symbol, and imagine your request being placed with the Universe.  The Universe will respond, either by an opportunity coming your way, or by giving you more info as to what’s required to achieve your goal.  Remember to seize opportunities when they come, as this puts you into an interactive state with the powers that be.  In essence, you are co-creating your reality with the Universe.

You can also release something that’s blocking you into the ocean, whether it’s a person, place or thing. Perhaps it’s a bad habit that’s been plaguing you, or an attitude that is holding you back.  For this purpose you would work with the ebb tide (when the tide is going out but before low tide).  Pick up a stone or shell and contemplate what it is you wish to release.  Really think about why this circumstance or issue is no longer serving you.  What might be able to take its place if you released it?  We need to sacrifice the old to make way for the new.  When you feel truly ready to let this go, fling your object into the ocean with all your strength.  Turn around and walk away.  Don’t look back.  This is now part of your past.  Get busy creating new circumstances, and soon they will shape your future.

The ocean is a perfect place to cleanse your jewelry and any less fragile crystals.  Make sure to hold on as you pass your objects through the salt water.  Every time you go into the ocean your aura is cleansed, but you can also make the cleansing more powerful by adding your intention to it.  Imagine the “gunk” from work or other people’s problems leaving you as the water surrounds you.  You will feel lighter and more refreshed afterwards.

Happy summer to all you mermaids and mermen!
