Making Waves


It was the flattest, calm ocean I remember seeing in a very long time.  It was crystal clear and I could see fish swimming in the shallow edge.  The day was hot and humid, the mercury rising into the low 90’s.

The stillness was reflected in our mood as we walked and talked.  The beach was full of people walking, dogs jumping into the still waters, a fisherman or two casting lines in hopes of catching something big.

My girlfriend suddenly changed the topic to a very emotionally charged subject.  Before I knew it, we were both raising our voices, the prior reverie was broken.  It happened in an instant.  At the same moment I realized our energy had changed, I also noticed there were waves lapping at our feet.

I told my girlfriend, “Look at these waves.  We changed our energy and we changed the ocean!”

She said, “Don’t be silly.  A boat had to have gone by and made these waves.”  We both stopped and looked.  There was not a boat within miles of where we were standing.  And there was no movement in the ocean in any place other than right in front of us!!

I know.  It sounds a little crazy to think that we have the ability to “make waves.”  But I saw it with my own two eyes. 

The beach had been so serene.  The ocean and the beachgoers all shared a beautiful peaceful energy.  We disrupted that delicate balance with our energy and waves appeared…only in front of us.  Maybe it was a coincidence.  Maybe it was not.

Either way, it makes me think about how our energy can affect our environment and the people around us.  And it makes me want to work really hard every day to be aware of the energy I release to the world!

In these times of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and riots,  I send a healing prayer and beautiful white healing energy out to those souls who are in need.  I pray that we can band together and create peaceful waters.

P.S.  My Father’s biopsy was last week.  Much to the confusion of his doctors, and the delight of our family, the mass in his lung is NOT cancer!!  🙂 

The Momma is doing so well 🙂  She told me yesterday she had to hang up because she had to go to yoga!!!  God Bless her!! <3

I am scheduled for knee surgery in two weeks 🙁  I put off going to the doctor because I thought it was Lyme’s raising its ugly head, but it turns out I have a torn meniscus.  This is another bad effect of this disease…when something is wrong you automatically assume it is caused by the Lyme’s.  You are conditioned this way because of all the times you went to a doctor and were told they don’t know what is wrong with you 🙁

No worries…I am working hard on my swimming strokes (instead of my tennis strokes) and I am working hard on my energy and positive thoughts…”I’ll be fine!”

    I wish you the best with your upcoming knee surgery, sending prayers and healing energy your way…

    1. Thank you Jewels…I am so happy for all the good news 🙂 The surgery is a bit unexpected, but I am sure it will all work out!! Blessings to you ♡

  7. Wonderful that you were observant enough to capture what happened. No coincidence. I don’t believe in it. Just us happening to notice. Yes, our energy affects EVERYTHING! I’ve noticed that we are having greater storms and more natural disasters as the middle east continues to wage war on the world. We need more powerful prayer and meditation groups to counter the violence and more that believe peace is possible. I loved this post.

    1. Marlene, I couldn’t agree more! I have to believe that we can make a change. The more people who gather in good energy, the more good energy we will attract!! I try so hard not to be swayed by all the negative forces. It was astounding really, to see the waves only in front of us!! Much love…and positive energy 😉 ♡

  8. Yes, our energy affects our environment and those around us, I believe. You definitely spread beautiful energy here <3 I'm happy to hear about your parents good health news, and I trust your surgery will go smoothly. Blessings!

    1. Hey Tiny! Yes…I’m so happy to report the good news 🙂 and I’m sure my surgery will go perfectly! Hope all is great with you ♡

  9. Dearest Lorrie, your posting was so engaging. I felt like I was with you while you walked along the beach, or perhaps I just fancied how nice of a way that would be to spend time. I’m a big fan of the mind-body connection – and it was so delightful to hear of how that connection expands beyond the mind and the body and into nature. I have no doubt you have powerful and beautiful energy – and you also have the sensitivity to be aware of the grand scheme of our lives. I must say, every time I see a posting from you in my e-mail, I smile – I’ve become the blog version of Pavlov’s dog 🙂 I hope you are enjoying all the aspects of your life – and I’m so happy to hear that your father is doing well and that your Mother is taking yoga. Thanks for all the smiles you’ve triggered in me today. With gratitude, Harlon

    1. Ah! Harlon…I LOVE the idea of the “blog version of Pavlov’s dog!!!” What a super idea…imagine if we could all have a trigger…one that would elicit a smile and happiness and love and kindness!
      I’m really happy that you resonated with this post. And I wish I could take you on a walk on this beach…it is truly one of my favorite things in the whole wide world to do!! One day there was a giant school of bait fish jumping at the shore line. A man, alone in a little boat, was chasing them. He had a giant net that he would swing around, like he was throwing the discus, and then pull up a net full of the fish into his boat. It was so amazing to watch! There were thousands of shimmery fish trying to get away, and this was a one man operation…he drove the boat…swung the net…pulled the heavy load into the boat! I did not have my phone with me to take a photo…I rarely go up there without it now for you never know what you will see.

      Thanks, Harlon 🙂 I so appreciate our connection. Have a super beautiful weekend <3

      1. Thanks Lorrie, I value our connection as well. It’s genuine and you are generous with your spirit. Wishing you a wonderful weekend as well 🙂 Blessings, Harlon

  10. Hello dearest! I’m going to send you waves of light (I can make some when I’m thinking of you)… everything will be okay with your surgery… I know you’re enduring much pain and still, you are so postive… you inspire braveness and lucidity to your readers… I love this post (as everyhing you write) but this one is about… the Sea… and interconnection… it’s so true… you know, while on vacation 😉 we observed that the ocean “react” to the sunset… when the sun was disappearing it was as if the ocean was shivering for a short moment, beautiful & inspiring (I could write something about that moment).
    So I’m not surprised our mutual friend (the Atlantic ocean) react instantly to you amazing soul 🙂 Thank you for the reminder… and as usual ♥♥♥ much love & take care, your friend F. 😉

    1. Hello my wonderful Fre’de’ric!! 🙂 It took me a little longer than I anticipated to get this posted. I knew you would love the interaction with the amazing Atlantic Ocean!
      I love the way you describe the ocean as “shivering for a short moment” when the sun set for the day…I know exactly what you mean!!! There is such a beautiful connection between the ocean and the sun…sunrise…sunset…magical moments 🙂 There is so much power felt while witnessing this and I simply love that you have fallen in love with the mystical sea <3
      Thank you my incredible soulmate…you always bring a smile to my heart…always!! Much love to you <3 <3

  11. So glad to hear the growth was not cancerous!
    As to the waves I’m sure our “vibes” (for want of a better word) certainly affect plants. I once shared a house with a couple who were having severe marriage problems (loud arguments etc.) I relocated a plant to strand just outside their room thinking it would look good there. The poor thing was all but dead two weeks later. I returned it to it less sunny more busy spot in the kitchen and it revived imediately. Once might be a coincidence but I’ve seen plants wilt or thrive so many times according to the “vibes”. (Hence I keep a nervous eyes on my house plants lol!)

    1. Hi Claire…thank you so much! Yes…we are very happy indeed about the good news!
      I so believe your (unintentional) experiment with your houseplants!! Energy is “everything!” I am very sensitive to energy. Yesterday I was impacted just like your houseplant…and it didn’t take long before there was a very real, very physical reaction to the negative energy. I prefer the beautiful energy of love and light….and smiles and happiness 🙂 I know its virtually impossible to avoid all negative energy, but I try to as much as I can!
      Thank you so much for stopping by and for commenting. Many blessings to you going into this weekend. <3

  12. Great posting, Lorrie. This idea has really been on my mind lately- how do my thoughts impact the state of things around me. 🙂 Your posting came at such a great time.

  13. It gives me so much hope for our world to read your positive posts and all the positive energy in the comments. I wonder if water in particular is good at picking up our energy, because there is so much water in us. I also wonder and marvel at the feedback the waves gave you and your friend. It seems the waves’ feedback had a positive effect on you two, as if the Atlantic joined in your conversation! I’m wishing happy waves of healing to you and your family, dear Lorrie.

    1. Hi JoAnne…it’s so good to see you 🙂 I’m happy you liked this one…and I think you are correct about our bodies being made up of so much water!! And I always seem to be so inspired when I am around water…ocean…pool…in the shower even! I hope all is super with you…have a blessed weekend!! ♡♡

  14. Dear Lorrie – so great to read and hear from you – Your positive energy is the best therapy…reading, hearing to music is a powerful therapy!!

  15. Hi Lorrie,

    I loved the way you wrote this. I felt, for a moment, the ocean responding to you and your friend, and it made me laugh. It’s like a huge power tickling the stomach of a cat, the way the ocean said “Peekaboo!”… So gently. So easily missed. So much like this is so easily missed, and your openness to it is inspiring. Glad to hear about your parents, and wishing you the best for your surgery. Lyme’s definitely has the effect you have written about… it causes so many false starts and nagging doubts. It is not only debilitating physically if it gets out of hand, but emotionally as well. Good to have a heart such as yours to radiate light through the fog…!


    1. Thank you, Michael. I wish I could tell you that my heart is always able to cut through the fog!! I have my moments that is for sure 🙂 The really annoying thing is I waited 3 weeks to see the orthopedic doctor because I have had symptoms in the past and all testing pointed to it being Lyme’s. So this time I figure I will wait it out and it turns out to be a torn meniscus!! That is when the emotional stuff can get to you. I thank God every day for the spiritual journey I am on…the paradox is it enables me to handle this illness…but I probably wouldn’t be on this journey without the illness! Life is like that…Hugh?

      Thanks for the good thoughts for my parents, as well. They truly amaze me 🙂 I send you much love and many blessings…and I hope your wife is doing really well with LD. ♡

  16. Glad to catch up with you here, Lorrie. I hope your torn meniscus heals beautifully (my husband’s did) and that spring, soon summer, treats you well.

    1. Hi Angie 🙂 Thanks so much…my surgery is next week. I am doing all of the testing required for surgical clearance…and more importantly, I am doing all the mental prep work 😉 I’m happy your husband healed so well…and I thank you for sending me your beautiful energy…it helps…it really does!! I hope all is super duper in your world 🙂 🙂 ♡
