It's common for people to think that being Intuitive, Psychic or in communication with your Angels and Guides regularly means that you have all the answers or you'll be able to figure everything out and just cruise through life with a knowing of it all.
Maybe or maybe not?
Looking back, 2021 was painted with a theme of surrender. Surrender shows up when we are getting out of our comfort zones and going through a transition, a kind of transformation takes place as a process, a journey, and an experience.
The year started with moving homes, with the intention of being closer to the ocean and a change of environment.
Learning to embrace the cold as my friend really helped me in pushing past old boundaries and limitations that I had imposed on myself.
Little did I know at the time, but this was the beginning of my next wave in the Ocean of life!
Through learning cold and ice therapy, I also developed an appreciation for Breathwork and these practices combined really helped me relax more. I thought I was pretty relaxed already, but these took it to the next level and out of that, actually came deeper connection to my Intuitive Abilities.
Through regular meetups in Breath Work and Cold-Exposure, I met the owner of the clinic that I started working at for 1:1 consultations, after an 18 month hiatus from face to face sessions.
(A fun fact, the date the article was published, read the same date as his birthday!)
Our conversations and ideas around skateboarding and spirituality flowed and this eventually became a book that we co-authored together called “The Endless Wave: Skateboarding, Death & Spirituality”.
You can read it as a free eBook here.
Despite being locked down for several months, I had the opportunity to spend more time with my family and be directly involved in my Son’s education. I had the opportunity to learn to connect with others in new ways, rekindle friendships and recognise who and what really mattered to me.
I enjoyed taking advantage of empty streets for skateboarding in usually pedestrian and employee populated areas.
I learnt to choose love over fear, courage over uncertainty, faith over false promises and it led me to connections that have brightened my life from a place of honesty, integrity and authenticity.
I could have stayed in the feelings of strive but it didn't light me up anymore. I was taught valuable lessons in surrender and release, detachment and detoxing and a greater appreciation of life and death metaphors.
Embrace death through surrendering to the flow and embrace the life in new opportunities that emerge. Like a revolving door, like a wave that crashes to the shore and returns to the ocean.
With each death, comes rebirth. Like when a Volcano erupts and the lava cools, the rock forms new ground to walk on. A Soul that leaves its body finds a new way to exist.
Looking back at the events of 2021, this was also the year that I came to terms with accepting myself as a Medium. I've always had it in me since I was a Child and had been reading people for years, but still had that part of me that wanted to hide.
2021 taught me to surrender and in death came rebirth and I could wholly claim that part of myself. I undertook dedicated study and felt truly comfortable with the practice and idea of connecting with the deceased and helping the living.
By choosing to appreciate death, I learnt that life and all that takes place, constantly takes on new forms and is constantly shaped by the vessel of Love surrounding it.
2021 taught me to live life authentic and free; like a butterfly and not a caterpillar.
Have you been embracing the Endless Wave in your life recently?
See you again soon!
