The Wind Beneath Our Skin

It windy stormy today. I am loving the wind. I was walking and enjoying the feeling of the wind blowing my hair everywhere and the feeling on my skin.

So here is something I have written in one of my visualizations in honor of the wind:

Now imagine a great big storm comes rushing through…rain, thunder, and lightning, wind…storming and swirling left and right…up and down…demonstrating its power and force…you remain there shining being the tree you are…you dive within…pause…listen…feel…everything around you is moving, blowing…in a crazy speed…yet you remain silent, aware, unmoving…mmmmmmmmm….is it not one of the most soothing feelings imaginable? The wind does not disturb you in any way…instead it dramatically changes into something extraordinarily magnificent and beautiful…you may watch the trees and leaves around you in total havoc…swinging from left to right…front to back…you are aware of how gorgeous and natural it is…grounding you within yourself…to the earth…if you were to begin getting caught up in the gusts of winds…moving against it…it would transform into something entirely different…
just like that from peace it would turn into annoyance…frustration, obstacles, and struggles…instead listen to what it has to offer you…your reality switches just like that…from destructive to delightful…your view of it changes…its power and strength becomes your power and strength…aware that your inner stillness…being, is strength, power…beauty…you are consumed by a feeling of gratefulness for the storm…your life…you…you admire it…honor it…immersing yourself into the gift of your being…all you have to do is be you…listen to its whispers…it is a gift as you are a gift…notice how fun it is…how calm and relaxing…what an adventure!…the more crazily and stronger the storm blows around you…the more amazing you feel! How fun! The more your own being becomes known to you…the more aware you become…the more spectacular you feel and the more extraordinarily astonishing the view becomes.

Maybe the storm has something to teach you…what are you aware of?…breathe…sense the wind between your body…allow it do its thing…to be the storm it is…its natural self…you become aware of every inch of your body…the storm can be one of your greatest teachers…or it can be your worst enemy…it can be one of the most horrible, annoying things ever…or one of the most graceful, beautiful things imaginable! Take your pick…choose…remember you have a choice…who could have ever imagined that something so unstable, chaotic, and wild…could be something so beautiful?
