In Celtic tradition, the boundaries of the mortal world are marked by the ninth wave. Beyond the ninth wave was thought to be the Otherworld, where magic happens.
“Wave after wave, each mightier than the last,
Till last, a ninth one, gathering half the deep
And full of voices, slowly rose and plunged
… from “The Coming of Arthur”
by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, (1809-1892).
In today’s world, the ninth wave represents that time and space where you decide to create your own magic.
Today’s world is full of change — one wave after another — and repeating our old patterns of behavior or thinking may no longer be enough. When we choose to be prepared and dive deep down finding our personal excellence, we succeed. We create a powerful inner voice; we plunge forward, roaring with energy, focus and determination. We create our own magic and live an inspiring, fulfilled life full of gratitude and abundance.
