Preparing for the Cruise

My cruise is less than two weeks away.  I'm getting excited.  Most women at this point would be making hair appointments, scheduling mani-pedis, buying new clothes. Well me too.  Hair next week, nails the day before I leave.  The clothes.  Ugh!  It's not fun to look at summer clothes on a 65-1/2 year old winter body.  I couldn't even look at the bathing suit in the mirror.  It fit.  Covered everything that needs covering.

But there's another side of me too.  The side that works with energy, my own - the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies - and also the energies of the world.  For the last year, I've been experimenting with focusing my attention on color, sound, and the creative geometries (platonic solids).  And I recognize that this work is beginning to bear fruit.  First of all, these wonderful travel opportunities have appeared and I've said "yes" to them.  Secondly, my skin is changing or at least people are beginning to tell me it is.  I've been asked several times recently, "What do you use on your skin?  It looks radiant."  Well, I use the same product on my face that I've used for 30 years - Oil of Olay active hydrating beauty fluid (about $7).  So I tell them about Oil of Olay but I emphasize that I believe this change is coming from the toning.

Toning is chanting sounds that correspond with particular colors, geometries and sections of the body.  I tone to heal my body, mind and emotions, to regenerate my vitality, to clear the energy within my own auric field and to clear the energy in the places I go before I go there, as well as in Mother Earth, etc.

Also while I tone, my High Self downloads information to me.  I don't always know what it means at the time I receive it but it always manifests later in my life.  The realization that it actually showed up usually is recognized by me after the fact. 

Today I was toning to clear the energy of the planes I'll fly on, the ships I'll be cruising, the stateroom I'll have, the ports of call.  Well, you get the idea.  And I received this message about the cruises while I was toning.

"Beloved, the main theme of the two cruises you will take seems to be opposition.  First, do what you can to recognize the underlying unity in opposites so that you can bridge the gap.  Secondly,you will come away with a clearer sense of the way opposed patterns and processes unfold from each other, rely on each other and return to each other."


Believe me when I say, I don't have any idea how this energy of opposition will play itself out or to what it refers.  In the past, the message might have frightened me a little bit, but it doesn't now.  It just makes me curious.  Perhaps it will be discovered in the various cultures I'll visit, perhaps it will be personal with another person I meet along the way or the person I'm traveling with.  I really don't know and won't try to guess.  But whatever it is, I'm sure that we will somehow bridge the gap and unify the opposites. 

The thought I have today of the underlying unity in opposites is that I am aware of things like,  hot and cold are both temperatures.  Light and Dark are the same energy thread of a 24 hour period we call day.  Men and women are people.  All people, no matter how different or what the race are humanity. 

This will be interesting.  If anyone has any thoughts, please share them. Stay tuned to see how the theme of opposites unfolds aboard a cruise beginning February 5 through the Panama Canal.

Beautifully said, Margie. Energy is energy! When we talk opposites it appears to be separate. The energy of Love and Fear, hate and some would call it, is all the same energy just opposite ends of the spectrum. The center meridian point is a balance point or polarity point or the point where opposites meet! Enjoy the ride! C.
