A Walk on the Beach



Thank you for joining me here, on my comfort beach..the stretch of beach I walk when I want to praise, pray, meditate, allow my heart whispers freedom to roam…The stretch of beach I lay it all down..and allow Mother Nature to fold me into her arms and Love on me..The stretch of beach I allow God to guide each step and show me all that I shall See..

I am very glad to see you here.  Thank *you* for joining me..May we walk a bit together? 

First, though, it would please me greatly if you could remove your shoes and walk barefoot with me.  I’d like you to feel the sand between your toes, the chill of the water as we walk at water’s edge…May you allow Earth to relax you so that we may enjoy this time together..

The sunshine is brilliant, playing off the water as the waves wash to shore….Mmm the sunshine warms my skin, so I turn my face up to it..Let the sunshine into my heart..May you allow the sunshine to warm your skin, to shine through into your heart?

May I look at your face..so radiant, so lovely as you bask in the sunshine..A gentle breeze blows your hair, tickles your face..a hug from Mother Nature..Thank you for reflecting radiant and lovely to me..

May I hold your hand as we walk?  I love the feel of your skin, the surge of energy as we connect..Thank you for allowing me to hold your hand..thank you for walking this stretch of beach with me..one of my favorite places with one of my favorite people…What a glorious walk–my heart is so very happy!

You are one of my favorite people you know.  That is why you are here.  To revel in this glorious day with me..Being to Being.  We connect on a soul level, beyond our physical shell, beyond our barriers and shields, beyond this realm of all that we See..It makes my heart happy to see you here..I do See you..Exactly as you are..Precious One that you are.  I See straight through into your inner core..your essence..and I Love You.

I Love You for all that is in your inner core..not what you present to me, not what you manipulate external to be, not what you show to the world. I Love You for all that is You.  You think that is impossible, but is very possible, because *I Love You* in such a Way…

Thank you for allowing me to See you.  Thank you for allowing me to experience you as you are.  Thank you for allowing me to Love you. It is my pleasure… 

Oh my heart is so happy..thank you!

May I show you my hills..the hills that I enjoy hiking through..

The sight of these hills brightens my smile.  So much joy in these hills..Some of my most precious lifetime moments have been experienced in these hills.  Some of my fears have been aired, some of my tears have been shed..just as on this very beach, in these very ocean waters..so much joy in this area..I feel so safe and loved here.  Thank you for walking with me..Thank you for holding my hand..So much strength in your hand.  So much love in this connection..

May we stop a moment?  I’d like to look into your eyes.  Such beauty filled eyes as you take in the ocean, the beach, the blue of the sky, the majesty of the hills..I love your eyes and all that they See..Thank you for allowing me to Look into your eyes..Thank you for reflecting such beauty to me..

You are so absolutely precious.  Can you feel your preciousness?  In the warmth of the sun, the chill of the ocean water, the majesty of the hills, the beauty of the beach and all that we see.  Absolutely precious.

Oh my Love.  A Tear.  Let me gently wipe away your tear.  What happened? 

It has been such a long time since you’ve felt precious..beauty filled…strong..awe-some..

Please release those tears, for you are all of that and More.  As your tears flow, let the space in your heart fill with sunshine, beauty, love, peace, joy, delight, wonder..hope..dreams..let your heart whispers reach to the sun as you raise your face and let the sun dry your tears..Mmm…let the ocean waters show you the expanse of grace, compassion, care…and let the hills show you power, beauty, glory…

May I hug you?  I Love you and I want you to Feel it.  Stand at water’s edge with me..let the water lap your legs, close your eyes, feel my arms wrap around you..as the sun warms us..together.. 

There isn’t anything you may do to earn this love, there isn’t anything you may do to lose this love. 

And I wrap my arms around you and hold you oh so close, so you may feel the love pouring from my heart as Mother Nature allows you to experience Her..

And we slowly step apart, thankful for the moments we have shared here on this beach..ready to take the next step of our individual ventures..

May you take the Love you’ve felt here home with you?  May you allow this peace to envelop your Being and rest securely in your heart where you may access it at anytime?  May you allow the smile in your heart to touch your face?  To put a twinkle in your eye.  Man, I love that smile..my *reward* for Loving you so..Lights my own heart, my world, the Universe..Your Smile does that to me..

Thank you for your smile..

Thank you for trusting me enough to walk with me..

All is well..you are precious, you are safe, you are Loved..

You have just been wrapped in Love and Light..

May you use that energy to create something fresh and new.

Much peace,

    Oh, so beautiful, Joy! Just what I needed to hear as I struggle with Halloween tonight… Thank you for sharing your love and peace with me. I always love coming here and seeing you, even if it is only a quick peek in and then dashing back off to go take care of something without leaving you a little love note in return. Thank you for sharing your special places with me and for reminding me that I am loved. I often forget, sometimes for days and weeks at a time. I hope you know that you are loved in return.

      Hi Sulwyn,
      I’m glad that you enjoy walking together!
      I share my special places with you..so that you may feel special…but also to allow you to think about your own special places and take time to revel in them..
      May you feel love and peace throughout each day..

    This is just so lovely – beautiful writing and I found myself smiling all the way through. We had sunshine today and I just had to be outside and enjoying the moments – now the children coming to trick or treat are getting heavy rain on their costumes and worried that I will not see their scary or beautiful thems at the door…. don’t worry, I have magic eyes that see beyond umbrellas and rain slickers and mom’s worries 🙂

    I am there warm and hugged on the beach…Thank you for this rest and refreshment

    We also walk on the beach here a lot. It gets the kids out of the house and I enjoy the water on my feet. I’m hoping to get a beach camp with friends in over summer. Fingers crossed! I’ll visit one day. A stop over sleep over. Love you.

    It’s nice to be seen. This was serene. Lovely walking with you, Joy. 🙂

      Thank you for walking with me..
      Serenity is not often felt through the bustle of each day..I’m glad you were able to tap into that..
      You are Seen..and I love what you reflect to me..

    Thanks for that. It was like a lovely progressive relaxation scene, the way you presented it.

      Hi Korakaos,
      Thank you for walking with me!
      After I wrote it, I felt it was much ike a meditation scene..I’m glad to have found such a place and to visit it in my mind when I am unable to walk it in person..

    Dear Joy,

    Oh what a wonderful walk that was. I read this out loud with Markus beside me, so we both walked with you. One on each side. We felt the sand, the water and most importantly – your love.

    What a beautiful, beautiful testament to the love that we are, and the love, that pure, pure love that we can all share.

    One day… and one day soon, we will walk this beach with you…

    • #16 by unfoldingyourpathtojoy on November 2, 2010 - 11:22 am

      Hi Evita (and Markus),
      Thank you both for walking with me..
      Pure pure love as unlimited as power filled as beauty filled as the ocean and all around it…
      I am very excited for you to experience this special place with each other and with my family..
      May we all have such a special place and have many to share it with..

      Hi Mark,
      Thank you for stopping in for a bit..and for walking with me..makes my heart smile to see you here:)
      Thank *you* for inspiring me through all that you share on your blog and in comments..

  11. #21 by Sara on November 2, 2010 - 9:47 pm


    I have loved so many posts you’ve written, but I must confess this is my favorite so far. You made it so real. I really felt like we were walking together. I could feel the sand in my toes and the sun on my face. It was a very peaceful walk and I needed that today.

    You amaze me with your capacity for sharing peace, love and happiness…it sort of just flows out of you and today flowed into me. Thank you for this wonderful gift:~)

    • #22 by unfoldingyourpathtojoy on November 3, 2010 - 12:21 am

      Hi Sara,
      Thank you for walking with me..it felt real to you because it *was* real..each time I walk “my” beach I take everyone I Know with me..
      Anytime you would like peace, you may recall our walk..
      My comfort beach is quite healing, so you may visit any time you’d like..
      You inspire me in the creative realms..if you were physically here I know your gifts would “rub off” on me..and my backyard would give you so much to photograph!

    Your words carry the beauty of your soul, and your intentions are energizing. I could feel you here with me, and me with you there; we are everywhere for each other all at once. How grand! I love that you see so clearly; I love that you love so purely. I love that I am learning to open myself to bigger and bigger love – pure love – because of radiant souls like you! You are warmth, heart, caring, kindness, generosity, strength, compassion, intelligence, insight, clarity, and the mother of the moon, sun and stars.

    Thank you, dear friend. I needed this walk… And I love you!

      Hi Megan,
      Thank *you* for walking with me..I love you dearly!
      Your words are nutrients for my blossoming garden..
      All that you see in me is reflected from you..
      May we enjoy many walks throughout time..
