I found a place near the shore that felt comfortable and let my kayak drift. I practiced chanting the vibrations of the chakras: A,A, E, I, O, U. When I opened my eyes, I saw the shore with the water, rocks, trees and a yellow flower. To me if felt “balanced”.
As I was starting to paddle home, I heard and saw the loon family: the mother, father and the two “teenage” children. The mother was close to the children and the father was a bit farther away, guarding the area. The children were diving down into the water over and over again. It was a happy scene.
I felt at peace and to me both images gave me the feeling of balance in my life. I had had a “good” row with my husband the night before. It cleared the air for both of us. I have read many books on relationships and how to “do” conflict. Our fight would have broken most of the suggestions written. For me, my “niceness” needed a little “bitch” to balance my psyche!
