Riding the Wave of Transformation

April 22, 2011 By: Mary Lane Category: Mind Body Spirit

Imagine yourself riding a wave. If you don’t stay balanced and ride out the wave completely, you could easily drown. Riding this wave of transformation requires becoming one with it, feeling every motion, twist and turn it takes. You have to position yourself perfectly in the sweet spot to hang on for the ride of your life. The wave gives you a memorable experience that will change you forever. You feel the thrill of merging with an awesome power.

When we merge with this wave we are given the opportunity to experience an outrageous ride that integrates life, death and transformation; cycle after cycle supporting us to live by nature’s law.

What on earth does this have to do with food? Seasonal local food grounds us and supports the balancing on this wave, which keeps us healthy. Nature nourishes us in a way that supports us to feel the sweet spot on this wave and have an incredible, transformational ride through life. We become and embody this wave of energy.


When you look at the entire wave throughout the course of the year from season to season, nature embodies a map for transformation that is perfection. She is our greatest teacher and has it all laid out for us. She teaches how to shed the old and how to grow and evolve with every yearly cycle. She teaches us how live in a harmonious way that promotes the nourishment and continuation of life. Just follow her lead. What works for her will work for us.

When we thwart this process, disease and ill health set in because this life giving energy cannot flow through us. We lose our flow. So it not only matters what we eat, but when and how we eat for optimum health and a long life.

The ancient ones rode this wave effortlessly and utilized the force of nature because they didn’t see themselves separate from this wave. They lived their lives deeply connected to nature – aware of the support they were receiving and actively honoring it as their teacher.

We lived as a human race for thousands of years harmoniously and sacredly, until we lost our connection with nature. History shows that all cultures that did not live according to natural law perished. So it makes sense to turn back to nature as our teacher of how to live, transform, and die. Food gives us an ability to ground and balance ourselves while we take this transformative ride.

The trough of the wave is energetically embodied in the winter months, flowing into spring as the energy rises, peaking in the summer, integrating the outward, (masculine) and inward (feminine) part of the wave in late summer, dipping down and descending in the fall, back to the trough in the winter.

When we have healthy relationships with the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of each season, the creative energy flows through us, carries us and supports us to grow and let go of what does not contribute to the continuing cycle of life.
