Exhilaration ~This Earth Experience is a Wild Ride


I think the title of this post speaks for itself.

And likely so do the photos laced throughout it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I decided to pair them up, as they feel to reflect one another – this Earth experience and the wild ride I recently was on.

You might recall my mentioning that one of the adventures we took our dear friends, KC and Clint, on while they visited was a wild ride on the beautiful American River for some white water rafting on class 2 and 3 rapids. This might not sound like much to the super experienced rafter who braves 4’s and 5’s, but from these photos I think 3’s will demonstrate the theme here well enough.

Although, that said, with the low water levels this year the class 2’s were actually a bit more crazy because of all of the exposed rocks we had to maneuver through and created a few close calls too. Woo!

But the class 3’s were powerful and there were many moments you couldn’t tell us apart from the water. LOL!

Thanks to KC for getting a hold of the photos for us and the photographer who took them so we can relive the moments. There were actually many more than what you see here.

KC and Clint are experienced kayak guides and rafters themselves with a lot of training under their belts.

Little did we know rafting this river was one of the things on their bucket list – CHECK!

It wasn’t on mine ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s because I’ve felt the extra nudge the last few years to be super present and cautious with anything I do, for reasons I’m unable to share at this time. I also don’t take for granted the power of water energy, which is what we are journeying through the dark and deepest ocean caverns of as a collective, and especially after our many wild kayaking adventures down class 2 and 3 rapids during our RV adventure.

But if I’m going to do anything that pushes my comfort zones, it’s with this bunch, as they’re the best support one could ask for and energetically our astrological signs are perfect compliments to one another.

Three of us happen to also represent each of the 3 water signs – that’s a lot of water in water!

They were also the ones who supported my fear of heights, as I both literally hiked and climbed down and out of the Grand Canyon on lesser known trails they are experts at navigating.

I do listen to my feelings and play things safe, though. So while the company didn’t enforce helmets, you betcha I was going to wear mine! KC did too!

And KC was always turning back to make sure I was still in the boat when we went through the wildest stuff. Aw!

Clint actually did, too, especially on one of the really explosive moments and grabbed out for both my and KC’s hands.

I always know I’m well taken care of with these two and Dave always has my back as well, as you can see him stationed behind me.

I ended up having a much more fun time than I thought (that’s me in the blue helmet and aviator sunglasses) I would and with all the precautions and past experiences under my belt, I felt as prepared as I could be.

Yet, just like with life, you can never predict what the adventure ahead is going to present.

Nobody ever said that a spin on Earth would be easy.

Nobody ever said it wouldn’t be without twists, turns, and major surprises.

They also never said you wouldn’t forget that you wanted to take part in the grandest show throughout the galaxy and Cosmos, although now you might want out.

And yet, here we are.

And we’re doing it.

For that, you are so honored and appreciated because it’s a big deal to be here and now.

Experiencing pure exhilaration.

On many levels and in many ways.

Thank you for braving the journey and playing your part.

Life is more surreal than ever these days, but so have our imaginations, creativity, and potentials grown to match the fantastical nature of it all.

Two of my favorite lines I love to recite when things get downright crazy are the following.

The first is from my favorite ride at Disneyland, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

โ€œHang onto your hats and glasses, folks, cause this hereโ€™s the wildest ride in the wilderness!โ€ – I’ve since replaced “wilderness” with “Universe”. ๐Ÿ™‚

And the second is from one of my favorite movies and characters, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

“The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last.”

May we find a way to experience things with wonder and awe, as well as with respect, reverence, and greater presence that will help us to align with and navigate each moment of unexpected adventures thrown our way.

And may we all make a promise to have each other’s backs when the going gets tough.

A collective buddy system would make the wild ride much more pleasant, don’t you think?

It does for me.

    These pictures are incredible!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿค—
    They certainly capture how amazing and exhilarating that adventure/experience was! You all are just completely alive and present! I love that!
    YOU are super braveโ€”I love how you lean into doing things that bring you face to face with fears, but in an aligned and safe way! Very inspiring! ๐Ÿ˜˜
    your words…..too xx ๐Ÿ’“

    • Yes! You said it! Definitely alive and present. I know my senses were on all time high. Lol! But yes, have to be ready for anything in situations like this and when you are facing extremes. It does heighten everything within your experience. And nature always adds more bing to the bang! Raw and wild energies that bring us to our core instincts. Thank you so much! I didn’t feel so brave to start out, but on top of taking safety precautions I did a healing attunement to support me in every way just in case. KC also gave me some Bach remedy to take the edge off any anxiety. The rest was between me and Nature and Uni! Xoox!!

  2. Kudos on taking a wild ride/ adventure with your friends that honored their desire for fun and yours to be safe too. I had a blast the few times I’ve gone river rafting. Yes, life is much better sharing the rides and helping each other. I’m grateful to share the journey with you. ๐Ÿงก ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ
