Raising Consciousness One Word at a Time
Ocean- a very large expanse of sea, in particular, each of the main areas into which the sea is divided geographically.
The ocean must be a strange concept to those who have never seen one. It is a place that draws people toward it and provides more solace, advice, and comfort than most other places. Why is the ocean such a magnet for peaceful feelings? One thing we know for sure, if you have a history near one, it is in your essence and you are continually connected to it. There is something magical there and in us that finds a connection. Big thoughts are realized looking into the waves and somehow they don’t seem so distant or unattainable. Whatever your personal attraction, the ocean is a big part of many lives and being conscious of its pull and power can allow a person’s consciousness to rise. It all starts with paying attention to your thoughts, words, and actions.
Ocean The Counselor
When the worst happens, and there are no answers another person can give you, the ocean has a way of providing solid counsel to those who come to its side. Ocean therapy calms you down, with the soft, continuous pounding of the waves, the sea breeze in your face. The soft call of gulls in the distance carrying your worries away with them as they dive for a meal and then float confidently on the water. Challenges are a part of life, but looking at something bigger than any challenge we will ever face builds confidence.
There is a comfort that comes from visiting the ocean in the smell of the salt in the air, and the experience seems to take all the negativity in life away with its ever rising and falling tides. You feel as if all of your problems can be tossed in and they disappear beneath the waves and lost in the mass of ocean depth. If you are seeking a peace of mind, look for it in the ocean.
Ocean the Connector
The ocean literally connects all things in the world. When you look out on the vast, seemingly never-ending sea in front of you, it encompasses everything. But you know that out there somewhere, all of life is happening. Boats are sailing, fish are swimming and on the other side, someone is more than likely looking back at you.
You can connect with someone who has left your life and moved on only living in your memory. I have been able to find those who have passed away, but still, their voices and a connection can be found by looking into the sea. The connection is there as you contemplate its depths, all of those voices of the oceans of people you have know speak to you. All you have to do is listen. That is one of the many magic qualities of the expanse. What or whom you seek, there you will often find. Our thoughts seem to be carried throughout the expanse of the ocean to other places. There is a reassurance in that.
Ocean the Energy Source
With such a large collection of moving water, there is going to be an energy produced that draws people. It is a natural flow that you can feel by being near, on or in the water. There is nothing negative about this natural energy and that is why it feels good to visit. You may not really understand it, but you know the ocean is a place of rejuvenation. Its power can be transferred into your soul.
Even if you don’t believe this, it doesn’t matter the irrefutable fact is that the ocean changes you. It gets in your soul and if you contemplate the meaning in life, the ocean is one of nature’s finest assistants. If it is hot and sunny, the ocean cools you down and makes you calm. If it is cold, the ocean is still there rolling along. Offering its advice for all people to take advantage of. There are few places so positively charged. It stuns me how often people live near this powerful source of wonder and pay no attention at all.
So raising your consciousness today, look at the natural wonders that are around you. If you live near the ocean, make a visit to that old friend. Be one of the people in the world who notices the power and change that can come from this large expanse of sea. And it all starts with your thoughts, words, and actions.
“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.”
John F. Kennedy
“The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.”
“The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.”
