IAM Sailing, in more ways than One…

Ultima Arrived in Benalmadena

The wind was finally blowing my sister’s sailing boat Ultima to my seashore in Benalmadena! They managed to get a birth in our Marina for a couple of nights. It’s been a long time! Three years since Tom and I greeted them here before, on their way sailing from Greece to the Caribbean.

It was my first time to sail with Angie and Jon! I was excited to board Ultima and spend a few nights sailing around Malaga. We picked up anchor and motored out the Marina, ready for a beautiful sail up the Eastern Coast towards Cartagena. A week later, we reached La Herradura, a lovely quiet fishing bay where we enjoyed the natural landscape and local Italian food while waiting for the wind to blow in and escort us to the next port of call!

It was here however, I decided to get back and catch up with my land life! It was easy and cheap to catch the coach back home to Malaga… and I could accompany Katie, one of the crew whose time it was to return home to South Carolina via Malaga/Madrid.

Gifts from Letting Go and Flowing

You do meet and bond with the most interesting, like-minded people when you let go and flow! Angie & Jon, I loved our bonding and laughing time together! You are both great hosts, thankyou… and Katie, it was really great to meet you, my new American friend!

Angie and I were brought up to be there for our family, no matter what! AND we have indeed practiced our unconditional love, which has allowed us to get through some bad hiccups over the past few years. We have and will always treasure our bonding times together, quality over quantity!

This time, we especially loved reminiscing over our Dad who loved to sail and sadly transitioned in 2020. Our tears helped clear lingering grief. We both miss him enormously, and of course our Tommy. I found it particularly hard to leave my comfort zone coming on this sail, sailing away without him! Talk about feeling vulnerable and emotional!

Gifts from Tom… Divine Connection

As always, I felt into it all and allowed my tears to flow. I remembered our wonderful sailing adventures together on our Mexican, American and Caribbean holidays. Not a day went by that we didn’t enjoy the celebration of life! AND I continue to celebrate and share with him, chatting with him… thanking him for helping me receive Divine light to keep me focused on my dream of NewEarth, feeling whole and harmonious and knowing my next step in each moment.

I also asked him to help create a calmer sea, as the rocking was quite wild at times… and it would be wonderful to see the dolphins swim and play!

After our talks I immediately feel comforted, feeling a deep inner sense of wholeness and seeing an outward shower of white feathers and seagulls. He just wants me to know he is always around. Upon reaching my final sail destination in La Herradura, I was, and we were surrounded with the abundance of seagulls, tuna fish, playful dolphins and a peaceful sea!

What a gift we can give ourselves when we allow ourselves to flow… to sail through our comfort zone and vulnerabilities with our Divine connection intact. Thankyou so much, what a gift!

I know my love is everywhere, within and without of me… I feel his wholeness, his Human compassion and wisdom and Divine magnificence. Not separate than me, infinitely one. IAM doing this. Slowly learning to enjoy a new Divine and metaphysical adventure.

A gift Barbara, to dare another step. And what a landscape (so to speak), to step into. Those moonshots across the still water is magical. I have done a little local sailing but not out in the openness of forever…as you are doing. And all are with you to share it kind lady. Thank you for sharing that gift of slowly understanding its peace, stepping beyond that pain but ever remembering the beauty that it gave. Take a bow dear lady, your sailing beautifully 😀 By the way, did the captain let you wear his cap and steer the boat? 🤣❤️🙏

Beautiful memories to imprint themselves on your soul and tears is grief that has nowhere else to go but to traveling tears down your cheeks.
Funny my friend said so much love inside of me. I said you can feel that love outside of you as a continuum of what’s inside of you. Love is more. I was or loved the validation when you wrote about. Beautiful higher vibration to stuff in your consciousness. Hugs.

The signs are always there. We just have to connect the dots and be aware.

Another comment I missed! Sorry😩 This was surely a great adventure and bonding with my sister and her husband! It needed to be done after a turbulence few years! It’s funny how I felt so vulnerable leaving land and tom, but he showed up on the sea too! So very special to feel and experience this. I’ll leave the long term sailing to my sister though, IAM not one for all the hard work and callous hands! he he! Thankyou for being here and enjoying my journey. Much love to you and Bernard❤️
