Hello my sacred friend!
Our journey around Lake Superior is winding down. Tomorrow we begin the drive home.
It has been incredible. Steep cliffs. Rocky shorelines. Crystal clear waters. Great hikes. Amethyst mines. Endless stone covered beaches. And even a bit of a digital detox. 😉
This trip has been deeply nourishing.
And, for the most part this has been a very smooth.
But it didn’t start out that way. It kicked off with a bit of a delay. Our truck needed a couple of unexpected, last minute repairs. The dealership was awesome in hurrying the process along, but they needed to wait on a part and that meant we needed to wait too.
At one point in my life I would have interpreted this as a sign that maybe we shouldn’t go. But, over the years I’ve come to know that EVERY part of a soulful travel is filled with sacred medicine and an opportunity for deeper insight. This delay was no exception.
After a deep exhale and a surrender into this unexpected hiccup, we quickly learned that this delay was setting a tone for the trip. It gave us time to wrap up some loose ends at home and depart with much more gentleness and ease. It softened our rhythm. And when we finally arrived at Lake Superior, we met her heart to heart.
As we sank more into this journey, a theme began to reveal itself . . . Reconnection. And Lake Superior kept reminding us as she offered up an abundance of heart shaped stones with each gentle whisper . . . “it’s time for reconnection.”
So reconnect we did.
Every soulful travel has its own energy and medicine and it is in our willingness to step back from how we think things should unfold and into an allowing that we can breathe with the medicine.
This is where the fun and magic lives!
In this week’s episode of the Crystal Shaman Life podcast I share some of my thoughts on what to do when things don’t go as planned as well as some of my favorite sacred practices while visiting a sacred spot.
