I went to the beach the other day and finally I had found the beach that had lots of stones and shells. Many of the beaches here in NC are smooth without many things to find to collect. As I was walking, I looked up and asked for a Hag stone. What is a Hag stone? It is a rock that has been thrown around the ocean in a perfect way that creates a stone with a hole in it. The hole allows you to wear it as natural jewelry or whatever else you can create with it.
I was just walking with my daughter and keeping an eye out for the stone I wanted. Then I said, “I am going to really slow down and find my gift”. Well, guess what? Right when I did slow down, there it was! They are rare and not easy to find. I was so happy! Then a few minutes later I asked for a piece of sea glass. I kept looking, walking and talking. We where getting close to the end of our walk, so again, I said I am going to slow down and be in this moment, finding what I am looking for. Right away there was a piece of glass.
The moral of this adventure for me was, both times I asked for what I wanted, but did not find it until I slowed down, felt my feet on the ground (sand) and expected it to happen…. Watching for my gift.
Everything that we could possibly want is right here. Slow down and be a conscious observer. The gifts are right in front of us!
Here is some fun information about Hag stones. They are good luck, protective and healing.
Do you have a story to share about asking and receiving gifts? I would love to hear it.
