“If the ocean can calm itself, so can you. We are both salt water mixed with air.” - Nayyirah Waheed
Did you know that staring at the waves coming in off the lake or the ocean actually changes our brain waves' frequency and puts us into a mild meditative state?
It's true. One of the best ways to exercise mindfulness is to close your eyes and listen to the waves rolling in and out.
There's such a lesson to be learned from nature's ability to calm itself – and our ability to feed off that and calm ourselves through nature – which is why the quote from Nayyirah Waheed that is on the back of this coin was so perfect.
And listening to the waves in the quiet of the night – like is represented on this coin – it rarely gets much better than that does it?
I hope that feeling of peace – both with nature and with yourself – comes through in the design of this coin.
The blues and whites are stunning. The stars are shining. The moon is bright. You are one with the water and it is one with you.
Note: Coin is 1.5 inches around.
