One day I walked into a new friend’s apartment in a building across the street from a beach and I knew that I could very happily live in that setting.
I was shown an apartment that was custom made for me. It had hardwood floors and a view that encompassed the ocean, rocks, trees, sand, flowers and mountains in the distance. Amazing!
While I gazed at the view I “heard”: You are drawn to the water’s edge because it is where you feel happy and free because you are not boxed in.
You can see and feel the beauty of the universe, which allows your Spirit to soar. That view down the strait is a passageway – a Northwest passageway.
This reference to the direction of the passageway may have reflected the fact that I had joined a class on Native American teachings.
During the classes the facilitator would beat on a drum while the class lay on the floor and went on Journeys.
At first I was able only to lie on the floor and enjoy feeling the drumbeat through my body.
Then slowly I began to have glimpses of what going on a Journey was about.
My first glimpse was when we were to connect with our Animal Totem.
I giggled as I saw myself walking down a path with the A&W bear.
But at least I was finally Journeying, he was an animal and he did lead me to connect with a salmon and an eagle.
