Many of us are drawn to the ocean. The sound, the smell and the calming feeling we feel when we are near the ocean can be alluring and addictive even. It is where we go when we have a bad day, to be alone with our beloved, to walk our dog or to just enjoy a day off in the sun.
I personally find myself near the ocean whenever I feel stressed out or have too much on my mind. The ocean helps me clear my thoughts and just be still for a moment. It’s the place I like to go when I have to think about something or when I want to write on a day when I have too much on my mind.
It is a known fact that the ocean has healing properties. Salt is a well-known cleansing agent which we use at our homes. The ocean is no different. The salt and the vibration of the ocean cleanses us of physical and emotional blocks as well as the mind of negative thoughts. It is especially good for healing the heart when you have been through a heart break.
I have recently come across an article which described a new therapy known as floating used on patients with post-traumatic stress disorder. The therapy involved the patient floating in a tub of salt water for an hour. After completing this therapy for three to four times, many of the patients were cured of their PTSD symptoms.
I have made it part of my practice to come to the ocean a few times a week. It helps me keep my sanity and stop my mind from spiraling into negative thinking.
If you don’t live close to the ocean, you can dissolve some salt in water and have a bath or better yet add some bath salts into your bath and pamper yourself. I assure you that this will instantly make you feel healed both mentally and energetically.
I am sure many of you have experienced the healing properties of the ocean first hand and have made it part of your practice.
