But it’s true. Life’s a Beach – if you intend for it to be one!
We create our day-to-day living from what we decide to be, do, and act upon in every moment.
What if we all decided to relax, regroup and enjoy?
I remember many a hot summer’s day of childhood spent at Lake Michigan – the coolness of her magic waters, the warmth from the sun – the sudden gray of the sky as the sun would temporarily disappear behind the clouds. Laying on a blanket waiting for the golden light to reappear. The tropical scent of 70’s suntan lotion flowing through the air.
There was not much to worry about. There still isn’t. If we want it.
Relaxing, resting, playing. My favorite was to turn cartwheels in the wet sand at the shore over and over, and then turn around and look back at the prints that were made by hands and feet – hands and feet….and then, go get a treat from the ice-cream truck, or a snow cone from one of the vendors with their cool snow-cone vending bicycle contraptions – choosing the flavors and watching the bright colors of the syrup fill the frosty cone with beauty.
Now again I am deciding, in the energy of resting, relaxing, playing – I want it.
My Life’s a Beach. Is yours? Tell us all about it!
How do you connect in to your Abundance? Do you give yourself time and sacred space to go within?
Do you give yourself the space you need to feel into the desires of your heart, soul and whole self?
So often the “old ways” of society have taught us to always be active – always do something – reach outside one’s self, connect externally – be a full time care-giver for others.
All of this is important, and has its own place and special gifts – but truly we cannot be there in our most helpful capacity if we do not first take care of ourselves.
We are able to be of the highest service when we not only are seeing to our basic needs, but when we are carving out time and space to cultivate and become our highest selves – our most conscious, expanded and aware versions of our already magical beings.
The more you honor your Self, and carve out that time and sacred space for your dreamtime, the more you feel your connection to All – and the more you allow your creativity to flow. From being in a relaxed state of abundance, you are opening to the epiphanies that are ready for you to tap in to.
You are your own well of abundance.
What will you do to create your space today?

Many of you know of Astra’s Spider medicine. This week she is moved to share a quick Spider Meditation with you all – a meditation of Creation.
Sit in a relaxed position, breathing in and out comfortably and evenly. Visualize or feel yourself creating your Golden Web around you, with you in the center. Ask your heart – “What do I want to create in my life?” Receive your answer.
Request of your heart: “Please show me the symbol that represents this new creation.”
See/feel/experience this symbol. When you have the symbol, bring it in to your Golden Web. Wrap it up with your Golden Thread to keep it safe in your web. Know that the seed of your Creation has been planted, and you need only relax and let it unfold in its perfect time.
