You call to me in my sleep

Offering renewal, vitality, balance

Mystified by your hidden secrets and treasures

I answer to your call

I’ve always needed to be near the water. Something within my DNA beckons it. In Finland there are over 180, 000 lakes. There is more water than land! I can recall seeing all this water around me when I was small and that feeling of home and peace that came with it. My entire life I’ve always yearned to be close to any body of water. The calm lake, the running river and the wild ocean all revitalise me in a way I can not explain, but I know is essential to my core. I once spent an extended period of time in a valley and the intensity that grew within me was so overwhelming that one day I just jumped in my kombi and hit the road to be near the ocean. When I finally arrived it was as though I could breathe again.

Over the weekend the weather was out of control amazing. So hot for a winter’s day. With swimsuits and towels in tow, my husband and I took the opportunity and drove north to a gorgeous beach in Lancelin. It was glorious! I had a quick dip in the ocean and to my surprise it was not as freezing cold as I would have thought. I have felt so rejuvanated since that swim, the perfect little summery break I needed.

Wherever you are in this world, if you hear the call of the water, listen to it. Whether it’s an ocean, lake, river or a pond…feel the amazing energy from being near a body of water and the bliss that washes over you when you are near.

With love and gratitude,
