Beach Of Time
Beach of Time
One Sunday morning while I was mediating, I ask my Spiritual Guide and my Guardian Angel permission to see you. I am thankful that they granted my request. I closed my eyes, slowed my breathing, and I counted from five to one. The first breath after my countdown, I felt the wind against my face. The wind blows on a place that is called the Beach of Time.
The Beach of Time resembles drawings from my youth. The white sand seemed to stretch for miles with no end. The ocean and the beach merge together as if they are intimate lovers for centuries. The Ocean of the Subconscious moves quietly. This ocean represents deep emotions. These still waters run extremely deep. From my vantage point, beautiful mountains are seen in the distance. Majestic eagles soar high in the powder blue sky.
I feel my Spiritual Guide’s presence to my right and my Guardian Angel’s presence to my left. A tranquil feeling comes over me from my root to my crown charkas. In the sand, where the sea meets the shore, a crab moves on to the beach. I kneeled down to feel the grains of sand in my hand.
From my kneeling position, I watched the crab’s plight as it travels on the beach. Suddenly, I heard footsteps in the water. A pair of wet feet has left imprints in the white sand. I rise from my kneeled position to see you in a beautiful white dress.
Without speaking, I reached my hand to you, we touched, and we embraced without a second thought. I turned to thank my Spiritual Guide and Guardian Angel but they were gone. You and I still feel their presence and the arc of safety they provide for us on the Beach of Time.
As always, the sight of you comforts by soul. My appreciation for beauty increases when I see you smile. Feeling at home near the water, naturally you sit in the sand. With very little persuasion, I join you. You seemed to be mesmerized by the ocean. You look at me and smile.
“Thank you for inviting me, its beautiful here.” you said.
“I know how peaceful the water is to you.” I replied.
As we sat in the sand, we talked about everything under the sun. You shared with me that you wanted a house and how you wanted to furnish it. With every word that you spoke, I realized more and more how important and sacred home is to you.
During our conversation, my thoughts referred back to a moment when I saw tears streaming from your eyes. The chaos surrounding you caused you to show me your emotions. You trusted me and felt comfortable enough with me to show those emotions. Now, I have the pleasure of witnessing your emotions on other end of the spectrum. I look at your face and I see the happiness of your free spirit.
Our eyes gaze at the eagles soaring high in the sky. At that moment, I wanted to tell you we are meant to fly as high as those eagles but this is not the right time. Everything that I know or feel shouldn’t be spoken to you, not at this time.
We walked along the shore while the moon replaced the sun in the sky. The tides are persuaded by the full moon to caress your bare feet as we walk. My pace slows as I look at the full moon and the billions of stars surrounding it in the night sky.
Our footsteps end in the sand for a moment. I looked into your eyes and I noticed I was still looking into the stars. Our hands intertwined and a comforting sensation associated with a violet light encompasses our twenty fingers. As we embrace, we are completely encompassed in this violet light. The overwhelming desire to kiss you comes over me but my intuition screams, “This isn’t the time.”
As we release each other, the violet light surrounding us slowly dissipates into the air. We stand in awe of what has occurred. Our attention is captured by a crab moving into the Ocean of the Subconscious. You kneeled and watched the crab join the ocean.
“Don’t forget me!” you said.
“How can I?” I replied.
You glanced to the heavens and the moon as you began walking into the Ocean of the Subconscious. Suddenly, I felt my Spiritual Guide and my Guardian Angel. I turned to acknowledge them and when I turned around again, you where gone.
I turned around to face my Spiritual Guide and my Guardian Angel with an overwhelming since of sadness. I walked to a number of large rocks on the beach as my guide and my angel followed me.
“There is no reason for you to be sad.” my Spiritual Guide said.
“But I miss her.” I replied.
“She is with you, always. When you look at the moon and appreciate the beauty of the ocean, she is with you. When you are a lover of the moon and the ocean you are showing you love her. This woman is one of your soulmates, the one you hold most dear.” my Spiritual Guide said.
“Soulmate?” I asked.
“Yes, soulmates but this does not guarantee or always consist of a romantic relationship. She is here to assist you during your journey as you are here to assist her. This bond, this connection is special, delicate, fragile and filled with love. Nurture this relationship and it will nurture you.” said my Spiritual Guide.
“And because you are soulmates and you have feelings for her ba
“Thank you,” I replied.
“There is a task for you because you have great power. She can feel your emotions. When you are unstable, she feels that and when you are radiating love, she feels that as well. You must surround her in a white light of your creation, of your love, passion and sensitivity. She must know that you are always with her.” my Spiritual Guide said.
“It’s time for you to leave the Beach of Time.” my Guardian Angel said.
Slowly, I felt their presence leave me and I found myself counting slowly from one to five. As I sat in front of my altar with incense burning and candles lit, the picture of you is in front of me. I place my hand on the picture and I said softly, “thank you.”
