Why am I writing you? Why did I create this blog? And why am I putting a lot of effort into creating media and content to allow you, the reader, to experience my thoughts and my journey?
That’s the question I’ve been asking myself for about 4 months now. I feel the urge to create, to write, to explore, to accept myself for who I am, to let go and live. After going through a bad break up and losing someone I really cared about and being alone, I hit rock bottom. Surfing provided a pathway to a spiritual awakening.
Why am I writing you?
Let me explain how I got to Seattle. The idea spurred from reading a book called The Golden Shore by David Helvarg. After reading the book and learning about California’s coastline I decided to surf and explore Big Sur, California’s Central Coast. You can read my blog about it here. I was intrigued with Native American myths and folklore and learned about Big Sur’s native people, The Esselan Indians. After my experience at Big Sur, I wanted to understand the Pacific North West’s culture, geography and how it impacted San Francisco’s development. I travel to Seattle.
Why did I create this blog?
At Mt. Hood, Oregon I learn about the Native American folklores along each trail and arriving in Seattle, I feel the same energy.
After watching the fireworks at the Space Needle on NYE, I was in a Lyft immediately after 12:00am and stuck in traffic, I decided I might as well stay out and wait the traffic out at a bar. I meet a woman and a man where we had a conversation about where we were from which led to reasons why I was in Seattle and everything seemed to connect. We were all in a transition in our lives, we were all going through the same experiences. I am not a religious person by any means, but the strangers referred to our meeting to a Native American spiritual journey called, an Eagle Awakening.

An Eagle Awakening is a persons spiritual journey and relationship with the creator, God or the Great Spirit (they said whatever you believe in, there is a higher power giving you signs and visions of achieving the best you can be, and how you’re connected to the world).

There are other unexplainable events that occurred prior to this that kept me on path. One incident, I lost my GoPro while surfing my local break 4 months ago prior to my Big Sur trip, and I meet a stranger named William at a beach break 2 hours away. As I was arriving at 10:00am on a Saturday morning, William was leaving and noticed me. He was hesitant to approach me, but I am grateful he did. He asked me if I lost a GoPro and I confirmed at my local beach break. Coincidentally, he found it washed up, picked it up, reviewed the video and tried to locate me by posting an ad on Craigslist for 2 weeks without success. Only to find me while surfing at that particular time and location, the chances were slim to none. We were stoked.

My surf trip to Washington has been validating in every instinct. I don’t think many people and most surfers would want to drive across 2.5 states in 5 days by themselves to surf a cold mediocre (but beautiful) beach break, where Santa Cruz is accessible within an hour. The sign was given and I acted.
Now I know why I am writing you.
