The Wake of our Walk

Today I had a most profound moment on my way to work, one of those magical experiences that left such a clear marker in my body that I will never ever forget.

Today I walked with God.

I travel to work by public transport, but this particular morning I was travelling earlier than usual on the 7.36am train as it was my first day back after 7 days off from work. I had just completed another Universal Medicine Retreat and I often notice after these amazing events that magic happens.

I stepped onto the train no differently than on previous journeys, however, as soon as I started walking down the train carriage, my awareness was very much with the sound of my boots in my every step. No one was talking on the train and within this silence I noticed each step I walked had a rhythm, an exactness that could be heard by all.

Apart from my footsteps, the stillness was so tangible you could hear a pin drop. With each step I could feel the absolute presence with my body, and in witnessing this, each step became more and more present and purposeful.

As I came to the end of the first carriage, my arms gently opened the doors to move to the next. I observed how effortless and amazing it felt to open the doors with such grace and purpose. I had never opened carriage doors like this before. I was feeling the depth of my presence in such a simple movement – there was something quite magical and harmonious in the way that my body was moving.

I then began the second train carriage walk, only by this stage I was very aware of what was happening. I could feel that my every step in stillness was impacting the whole carriage and everyone I passed. I felt the responsibility of every step. Walking in this purposeful and connected way, accentuated by the sound of my boots, was causing heads to turn to see and understand what they were hearing… a sound that was not so familiar in the depth of presence it offered. It felt like every person on that train was being blessed by the presence and grace of my walk; it was as though every person I passed was being washed in the wake of my walk.

No words exchanged, but much felt by all.

After this experience I realised that this is the power we all have when we claim our presence. This was the level of responsibility that I could choose.

Even though at work I cannot hear the click of my boots on the carpet like I did on that train, every step I take at work and anywhere I walk is leaving an energetic footprint. The only choice I have to make in each moment is what kind of footprint this will be.

We are forever leaving a footprint wherever we go and in whatever vocation we choose. The light that we carry in our walk can be truly power-full and a healing reflection for all.

In any moment we can choose to walk with God.

Forever inspired by the graceful footprints of Serge Benhayon & Universal Medicine.

  1. In all you have written I feel the appreciation how you walked with God and the grace and purpose in every movement there after ‘I was feeling the depth of my presence in such a simple movement – there was something quite magical and harmonious in the way that my body was moving’

  2. When I feel super connected I find this incredible feeling happens – of both being super aware of how I am feeling when I walk (in my body – arms, legs, feet, hands, heart, spine) and equally my feelings reach out around me to the people and nature surrounding me so that both are held in the same field. It has taken me a bit of time to develop as I was used to focussing, but I have found this a much richer way to experience the world.

  3. This article brings forward how important it is to live in our body, holding it with grace and presence. How we move talks to the world, it either confirms stillness and grace as shared above, or it confirms difficulty and complication. Do I dare ask, how do you walk?

  4. I like that ‘ at any moment we can choose to walk with God’.
    So true, all divine is so much closer then we think. It is within us and around us.

  5. The amazing thing is that God is with us whether we choose to walk with him or not.
    So a note to myself: Why on Earth choose not to walk with him when he is already beside me? Why choose the misery of that separation when the joy of connection to him is always available?

    1. So, so true Doug and it is brilliant what you’ve shared here. I am going to use this as a note to myself too. I just stopped, took a moment to appreciate what you have offered us to consider. Wow, I agree God is always with us and why would we not connect to Him and allow ourselves to feel His presence, His love, His magnificence, His grandness and stillness?

  6. We can never underestimate what we leave behind us when we walk in our presence. To me, a person walking this way leaves in their wake the stillness that is emanating from them and it is laid there for another to walk into. This in itself can, and does provide a deep healing for our world.

  7. Love the title and the the responsibility that it calls us to,’ The Wake of our Walk’. As you beautifully share here Marika, ‘The light that we carry in our walk can be truly power-full and a healing reflection for all.’

  8. Wow Marika, I love your blog. It is deeply powerful and inspiring. This level of responsibility that we are able to embrace is incredible, magical and deeply healing. The power of walking with God is available to us all and you have reminded me of why we are here, to walk with God in our every step.
