The Caribbean is undoubtedly one of the most romantic places in the known galaxy. It’s romantic because it connects you with that mysterious sense of adventure and energy known throughout the cosmos as L O V E. It’s a certain vibration to the Caribbean that synchronizes with your own vibration and results in a feeling of bliss and beauty. In this regard, it’s a place that literally gets into your soul – or, rather – liberates your soul from its rigid confines. It inspires a more heart-based approach to life, as opposed to the lower level gut-based operating system that dictates so much of our current reality. Here in the Caribbean you can’t help but feel connected to something greater than yourself. It permeates your very essence and energizes you with what could be called the rhythm of the tropics. You’re approaching a flow state now, just imagining it, aren’t you.
Well let’s take that imagination even further. Picture yourself sinking your bare feet into the white sand. No, deeper. Down through the hot sand to where it’s cool. Feel the sun on your arms, on your chest, on your face, on your neck. Feel yourself glow as a welcome breeze cools your skin. Hear the waves washing ashore, the ebb and flow of energy, and somewhere an exotic bird sings a tune you’ve never heard before. Smell the fragrant flowers and the fresh conch salad on your plate. Now it’s your turn. What do you imagine?
