Writing Creatively With Spirit

A journey of psychic discovery

Why the rush?


Wednesday 20th November 2013

I managed to get down to some serious writing yesterday before meeting a friend on the beach for a two- year catch-up.

What amazed me was that as I walked onto the beach one of the women who helps to keep the beach clean hailed me ‘Hey Predencia, how you doing?’ like she’d only seen me yesterday.

I went over, held one of her hands in both of mine and said I was honoured that she remembered me.

‘Why wouldn’t I?’ she replied surprised.

I didn’t answer that it was because I’d forgotten hers. ‘It’s been two years,’ I said instead.

‘I know,’ she replied and I felt humbled again.

Later I reflected on why my memory had been so much worse than hers. I came to the conclusion that her life had continued pretty much the same since I left, but mine had been a constant blur of new experiences.

There was a sense of calmness about her, of knowing that tomorrow was going to be the same as today, as it was yesterday.

After talking to my friend, who has also lived a life full of almost daily connection with the beach, and who displayed the same sense of calmness, I wondered if my rushing about was achieving anything.

They watch the people come and go, just like the ships that pull in, stay for a while and leave. But they have the beauty of these sunsets every day.

  1. Following all what is going on with you makes me feel very closed to you. Infact, I can not afford to miss any of your updates. Predencia; God has given you a wonderful gift and a writing talent that you need to at one point come up with several b
    ooks full of inspirations. May God continue to bless you. |We all doing find and looking forward to starting exams soon.

  2. Lovely to hear from you Fred. I’ve had contact from three people from Kumbo this week. I feel very close to you all too. I have been spreading the word about your amazing project, and your amazing you.

    At the moment I’m in the middle of editing stories about parenting, and writing a parenting course, but if you have any ideas as to what kind of inspiring stuff your’d like to read I’d be more than happy to have a go at writing it .

    I am very grateful for your continued wishes for God’s blessing. Thanks.
