I'm a beach girl! I especially love the beach early in the morning when only the fishermen are there, or during a sunset. I also love going off season while wearing a sweatshirt and just soaking in the energies. It always amazes me that sand is comprised of crushed crystals, minerals, shells, and the like. Plus we know how healing and therapeutic the salt water is. Mega negative ion action is going on at the beach! I always feel so cleansed and refreshed after leaving the serenity of the beach. It's a true spa day for the mind, body, and spirit! I've taken quite a few videos while at the beach to share some of my experiences and other tid bits. Enjoy.

Beach Prayer and Blessings
The Starfish Story
Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up. As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.
He came closer still and called out 'Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?' The young man paused, looked up, and replied 'Throwing starfish into the ocean.'
'I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?' asked the somewhat startled wise man. To this, the young man replied, 'The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die. 'Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, 'But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!' At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, 'It made a difference for that one.'
