Trust is an essential aspect of flowing with the Divine and Dancing between the worlds. We surrender to where the currents take us, guided by our inner knowing.
During this Soul Art Journey, I let creativity guide my hand into the depths of Trust. Symbols of my past and home surfaced into the portal of this expression. First Orca, and then swallows….
I remember the first time I saw a wild Orca in the Ocean for the first time. I was just a girl, sea sick on a friend’s boat. “Whale, whales,” her family shouted from deck. I jumped from my bed in the bow and ran head first into the cabin’s door frame, knocking myself on to my ass.
Slightly seeing stars, I made it to the deck just in time to see one of the most beautiful visions of my life. A small family pod of three whales cruised along the Ocean’s surface, a Mother and her two young calves.
I was instantly enchanted. I began to dream of the whale, seeing it surface in my sleep, pods of Orcas swimming through the Northern Lights, journeying through the Alaskan Arctic Nights.
And then there’s the swallows. Another symbol from the roots of where I come from. The seasonal return of the swallows meant summer was soon to arrive. Flocks of swallows migrate annually over vast oceans and landscapes, following the waves of abundance as they come and go with the changing tides. I too have adopted the ways of the winged ones, guided by the wind, learning to trust the stars.
I now live in Costa Rica, but have migrated seasonally back home to Alaska for summer work. I remember one evening seeing the swallows fly in to the high mountains of Costa Rica where I was living, after having worked a hard season in the Bristol Bay.
The energy of arrival permeated the air. How far had they come? Could they be the same swallows that nested in the banks of the Naknek River I call home? Their power amazed me. I was in such awe of their feat I began to cry. Being able to witness how some paths can align, theirs with mine. And now, here they are again dancing together from Sky to Sea.
I hope this Soul Art inspires you to Trust Your Journey and the possibilities to let go and Flow with Life!
