Early Morning Beach Meditation
I woke up this morning early (about 6:30 a.m.) and suddenly felt the urge to “walk to the ocean.” Without even checking the weather, I grabbed a light jacket and strolled to the shore.
I understand how lucky I am to live in Myrtle Beach near the water. I mean, look at how many relaxation tapes have “ocean sounds” on them as a meditation option. All I have to do is take a few steps and there I am, gazing at the wide Atlantic.
The best time of day for many Myrtle Beach visitors may be around noon when the sand is packed with tourists, music, etc. But let me tell you my opinion as someone who has lived here a while – midday is a lot of fun, but to me, the best time to enjoy the beach is early morning when the air is crisp, right before sunrise.
This morning was a great example of how beach meditation helps me start my day off right. I walked to the beach access point that I normally go to and went through its path to the ocean (when you get to The Caravelle, you’ll see many of these places with wooden benches and steps right before reaching the sand). I sat on the steps, checked my watch, then looked up just in time to see the sun beginning to peek over the horizon. It takes about 3 or 4 minutes to go from a little glimmer behind the water to its entire bright and round form, and the experience is very spiritual. I don’t go every morning, but I try to go as often as possible.
