Surfing the tides of the Universe

Surfing the tides of the Universe. What does that really mean?

Imagine yourself out on the ocean in a lifeboat. You see an island in the distance. The tide seems to draw you to it. If you find yourself out in that lifeboat with a paddle you can try to move towards that island. If the tide is with you it will be much easier to row your way there.

However, if the tide is moving away from that island it will take much more energy and struggles to get to that island. The smart thing to do would be to wait until the tide changes in your favor and then try to paddle your way ashore.

How does that translate to the tides of the Universe?

Have you ever found a certain direction you tried to take in your life much more difficult than another direction? Have you ever had something come so easy to you that you didn’t seem to have to work very hard to achieve your goal?

That’s Universal tides at work.

Some things are in line with what you should be doing – the island you should be going to – and the path is easy, almost effortless. Other times it seems like you struggle and struggle and get nowhere quickly. That “island” you are trying to reach gets farther and farther away as the “tides” seem to pull you from it. It’s almost like the Universe is telling you that’s not the island to land on. It’s not the path you need to take. It’s not the direction you should go. The Universe is waiting for you to see the path you should be on. The one the tides are moving towards in your favor.

The tricky part is to determine which tide is the right tide. Maybe you ARE suppose to go to that island but need to have a little patience and wait for the tide to turn.

Granted, some things are worth the struggle. And sometimes there isn’t time to wait for the tide to change. But if we can figure out which paths we can wait for, have the patience to not only wait for but LOOK for the right direction, and know the difference between what we can not wait for and what we can, what is really important and what is not quite so, the we will find ourselves moving more in sync WITH the tides of the Universe, not against them.

And that makes for much easier travel on your life’s path.

What do you find yourself doing more? Struggling against all odds? Or successfully surfing the tides of the Universe?


About ynnarie

Lynn Salisbury grew up in the rural town of McGrath, Minnesota. After graduating from McGregor High School in the mid 1980’s, she moved to the Twin Cities. Lynn spent her 20’s and 30’s working like the average person, never imagining the calling that awaited her. But those two decades of working, learning, growing, led to the day a friend challenged Lynn to write. Lynn met that challenge and never looked back. Now she draws from her life’s experiences and creative mind to weave stories. Stories about different worlds, different lives, different perspectives. If you ask her about her life, Lynn will tell you it’s been rather simple and sometimes boring. But if you dig a little deeper you will find that it’s been a bit more exciting than that. Lynn has done everything from designing clothes ranging from prom and wedding dresses to drag queen attire and everything in-between, became a registered, ordained Pagan minister in the state of Minnesota, to creating a group, on a social media site, of fans devoted to her favorite football team that has more members than most medium sized towns. Lynn still lives in the Twin Cities area, enjoying the changing seasons, spending time with family, working, and writing. She will admit she hasn’t found her genre niche yet, and she secretly hopes she never does, leaving the possibilities wide open for any type of story that formulates in her head, mixed with a bit of muse inspiration, to spill out into the written word. She writes what she would want to read, having taken to heart a piece of advice she once heard. And she feels blessed and grateful for the chance to share her stories with the world. As the mother of three amazing, beautiful and strong daughters, Lynn knows that even when the world seems the darkest, they are her light. And she never forgets what an honor and privilege it is to be their mother. “If you haven’t had your ‘a-ha’ moment today, you haven’t been paying attention.” – Lynn Salisbury
