Black Waves

Fallon and I walked into the town in the lazy hours of the morning, to find a restaurant that offered vegan options and smoothies.  There was hardly a car on the road the entire time we were out.  I sat in a window seat and watched a couple argue as little birds hopped around beneath their feet, picking up the crumbs which were dropped from their breakfast plates.  It’s amazing to me that I board a plane and in a few hours, I can be immersed in an entirely different culture and lifestyle.  It’s disorienting.  It causes me to forget myself.  But sometimes that kind of forgetfulness is welcome.  Our every day lives have a way of trapping us and it is freeing to remove ourselves from the monotony of that familiarity.

Water is notorious for the ebb and sway of its moods.  And as such, the ocean was different today.  It was choppy and unpredictable.  It didn’t dance with the sand and shells as much as it spit them out towards the people gathered along the beach.  I felt a bit like a trespasser today when I sat in the shallow wave break to meditate.  It is a personal favorite of mine to meditate in the turbulence of the waves as they break around me and into me.  I use the turmoil of the sensation to force myself to look for peace and calm within myself.  When your eyes are closed, the mind reacts to the sound of each wave as it roars towards you by hitting you with a surge of fear. Each wave sounds as if it may overtake you.  You can use the method as a means to practice the art of surrendering.

At 3:15 today, I gave my conference speech.  This convention was limited to 90 attendees and I must admit that it felt intimate to have such a small group of people before me in the audience.  It felt more like a group discussion than a lesson I was giving.  I feel quite at home in front of an audience.  I would never have suspected that.  Having been such a shy child, I would never have guessed that I’d be destined for a career in the limelight.  But I love it.  I love watching people’s faces as they try my information against their own opinions.  I love the openness of a group when they rise to the occasion and dare to look at life through a whole new lens.  And I especially love it when that new lens is my perspective.  When I am talking to a group with the intention of teaching, I am in such a high vibration that time ceases to exist and I am only in the now.  I do not formulate what I’m going to say.  And quite often, I forget what I have said.  I recognize the vibration of the group and individuals within the group.  Beyond that, I let the information flow to and from me like a river.  It feels so good to be inside that flow.

After I was done with the speech and with signing books, I took care of some work on the computer, went out to dinner and took a barefoot walk along the ocean shore in the dark.  The black waves rolled, with their pearl white crests onto the white beach sand.  It was like a scene out of a science fiction novel.  The brightest star in the sky hung over the ocean, lighting a kind of pathway across the water from itself to the shore.  A warm wind blew inland, carrying that classic smell of ocean.  It’s impossible not to feel epic while standing in ocean wind.  Every movement someone makes is made glorious by it.  Wind in general makes it feel like you’re watching a real-time memoir of the person who is caught in it.

Winter (my son) got sunburnt today.  He has played so hard and for so long on the beach that he is now snoring.  I love it when he is this asleep.  He’s so limp that you can pet him and hold his hands and press your face against his without receiving any reaction.  He’s at that over active age where a calm moment with him is a blessing.  Tomorrow, we are headed home.  I miss my other communal family members.  And I am excited to return to the fall colors as they fade into my favorite season of all… Winter.

  • I watched you today and enjoyed it immensely. I tried to relate some of the questions and answers to my own problem with my weight and why I can’t get rid of it. I may have found something to think about in this regard and thank you.

    I love the night time picture you took and posted here….really touched my heart.

  • Entrancing, Teal. :) And love that quote of yours, thank you for it. It’s because of your teaching me that, I knew, “The Wizard’s Message,” was a path for me. And it was inspiration to connect it to Teal Eye. I was reminded that day, when I woke up to look for a company to fund that wanted to bring about world change. I actually said it aloud, as I woke up. Anytime I say something, when I wake up, I take it’s from my guides, or Higher Self. This was something I had been wanting to do for the previous coaching business I was going to do that was urge for money so I can proceed with an amiable divorce. And that very night, I was sick, so I nestled in my blanket with the computer and found your video about Teal Eye. I watched the full 3 hours, and was like :D … this is it! I felt the inspiration & joy. Much love to you. ^^

    Love & Light,
    Seqkat =^..^=

  • Love your vivid descriptions! So mystical and enchanting and filled with wonder. You’ve inspired me to keep a blog on my upcoming trip to Asia (I think). I leave Canada in 4 days…..and I still haven’t decided where I’m going first from here. It could be west, east or south, literally. I guess I’m waiting for that moment of inspired action. Or just a clear sign from the universe one way or another. Trusting, seeking guidance, and being open to the options that present themselves. There are no shortage of possibilities right now, which is a blessing of its own. I’m lucky to have such freedom…

  • I hope you plan on going back to Florida. Miami and west palm beach are so nice to get away in the winter. I hope I am there all winter.:)

  • Your blogs are amazing. I loved the bit about not feeling epic when you’re in the wind.. I totally was in that moment when I read it. I love the beach.

  • I love Winter too, If I still lived in Florida I would have gone. Hopefully if you are in Virginia sometime soon, I could go. One of the best things moving away is living up here where I can finally experience all the seasons. I just only have to find my place up here.

  • Standing here at my job, you just took me on your trip with you. My eyes are welling up, Teal. It is chilly and wonderful here in New York. The turbulence I feel moves me to tears of what it would be like not to be here so early. To be writing, and singing. And smiling because I want to, not because I have to. You remind me of my joy. Thank you, again :)

    I was also at the Return to Atlantis Conference and felt your presentation was awesome!. The evening of your presentation I went out on the hotel balcony and saw , hanging low in the sky and reflecting in the onto the ocean ,the brightest star I had ever seen . It was so beautiful I called my husband ( also known as” he who travels with gadgets”) out to view this. He happened to have an IPad Application called “Night Sky” that identifies the names of the stars . He held up the IPad and I saw that the star was ARCTURUS. I had just shown him my journal that had your Frequency Painting “Arcturian Ascension ” on it. Incredible!!!!!! The star you were referring to in this blog was ARCTURUS. Beautiful , just beautiful.

    WInter and ocean are my favourite and I feel the same when I meditate by the ocean, the fear and the wholeness:)

  • Is Winter going to be a snowboarder or a skier? I’m a skier like you and it just seems like skiing offers so much more in terms of self expression. Just curious. Thanks for being Teal Scott! Best wishes – Dave Clark.
