Finding Peace in Your Stillness

During a visit to the Oregon coast during the recent king tides, I spied a message that I want to share with you during this time of energetic upheaval and change on Earth. With the waves crashing around us on the jetty at Ft. Stevens State Park, I tried to capture the moment that was described in this message:

The picture perfectly reflects the current state of my feelings: chaos surrounds me, yet I am safe. I find peace in this stillness within me. Through its lens, I see how this energy is needed to counterbalance the weight of turmoil in the world. I am here for this. I am here for this moment, in this timeline, to act on an ancient promise to myself.

Is this what manifestation looks like?

When I find the peace in my stillness, it feels like floating on air. It’s as heady as those dreams I’ve had of flying. I chart my course with a 360° view of the world, effortlessly staying aloft. That course will take me where I’m going, where I meant to go, where I promised I would arrive.

Is this what manifestation feels like? I wonder this as my feet rediscover the ground, after I’ve arrived at my destination. The journey aloft has changed me; I see the world more clearly for what it is. A theater, and we are each in a starring role.
