Sunday was a very teary day. A post medical conference day. A day full of overwhelm and processing and fear. A day full of questions. I knew that my Monday would need to have a beach stop in it.
On Monday after I dropped kids to school, I grabbed coffee and headed to the beach to walk, reset and get some space. The sea is my heart home. Where I return again and again to receive comfort, soothe my heart and get clarity.
I wandered, intent on not doing anything. Only focused on movement and breathing in the salty ocean air. At my feet I noticed the tiniest of sea urchins. So delicate and small. I am a believer in animal messengers and spirits. So here was the message from the urchins.
Sea Urchins (from www.starstuffs.com)
"Sea urchins teach discernment and the art of underlying circumstances. Slow and methodical, she shows how to maneuver with tenacity and patience. Nothing is impossible when Urchin is guiding you. Monitor defense mechanisms. Do you have tough exterior and soft inside? Urchin will teach this balance of rough and tender. Evolution, metamorphosis and new developments are highlighted with Sea Urchin medicine. She teaches ways of extracting information out of the rubble of the mind and of day to day activities. Care of your feet, physical movement and grounding properties hallmark Urchin's meaning".
I love when I receive the exact medicine that I need.
