I’ve just come back from a Winter break in Scotland on an island with epic, white beaches,  clear, turquoise waters and a raw and rugged wildness. 

I had an encounter with whales that I’d love to share with you.

It plugged me right into a vibrant sense of purpose, inspiration and creativity, and I hope it does the same for you. 

One day, as I was walking along the beach, I looked across the sands and gasped – in front of me was an entire whale backbone, resting amidst the kelp.

Can you see it in the photo above? It was twice as long as I am tall!

(One of the locals later told me that several deep-diving whales had been washed up that summer, probably due to some kind of deep-sea testing.)

As I sat with the whale bones, I was struck with both a sense of grief at the challenges we face on Earth today, and a roaring fire of inspiration within me to do everything I can to be part of the change.

I started making this mandala – as a kind of embodied prayer – and as I chose each stone I seemed to hear a whisper from the whales…

“Dive deep”.

I felt a commitment rise in me to do everything I can this year to play my role, as best I can. To keep diving deeper and helping the changemakers of our world bring their work forth in ever fuller, bigger and more beautiful ways.

How about you? What does diving deep look like for you this year? What are you committed to creating and growing?
