When the Path Reveals Itself. Follow it. My First Week in Bali

I've heard the words "I'm living vicariously through you" more than a handful of times in the last years and feel flattered that my journey perhaps entices people's inner "nomad" or "dream seeker" as mine seem to be alive and thriving these days. With the many accounts of "luck" or blessings my journey has provided me, most, if not all have been interjected with what I call "shambles" right alongside... the doubts, the fears, the heartache, the failures. My last months in Dubai I felt in much need of some regeneration and personal reflection. To reconnect with my own teachings and find a simpler way of life... Slowing down. Breathing. Nourishing. "Chilling Out" Connecting with nature... with people.  This to me is where I feel I support others the most. And this is where I find the most inspiration to create and find my own successes.

"That's been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex. You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains." - Steve Jobs.

 I had the option to go home to Canada. But something just felt too "comfortable" about going home just yet. And so... I pulled another one of my most spiritual mantras, called my "f*** it" cards and packed up my life's belongings in a suitcase and landed in Bali. I just believe that life can be whatever adventure you want it to be and the more you throw yourself out there, the more you really get to know the workings of this world... and the true magic it can reveal. 

 

I've been in Bali for 7 days now and feel like my absolute glowing self again. The instant I arrived I felt the love that everyone describes Bali to be... Kind, warm, loving.... lush, beautiful. Spiritual. I got settled into my beautiful room where I will be staying until the end of June. But know I will be here longer. I knew the second I landed and everyone was asking "how long are you here for?" "Probably forever" has been my most common response. And I sort of mean it. I've never felt more "at home."

And so, I got myself a scooter and started bombing around this beautiful town of Ubud visiting all the beautiful quaint restaurants and spas and quaint little shops. This town is a haven for fresh juices, organic plant based foods, a culinary mecca of a town! I've had too many chance meetings with old friends from home, my adorable Lisa (my little lovedrop) from Edmonton and her boyfriend are here so we went out dancing and spent some wonderful time together...  my jungle goddess of a woman, miss Wendy Green of http://www.wendygreenyoga.com who I met on her raw food yoga retreat in Honduras almost 5 or 6 years ago... she of course just happened to be up the street. So we caught up over a swim as she updates me how she moved to Ecuador now in the jungle. Life just seems to flow again here. I cooked a wonderful vegetable curry dinner here for a lovely couple from Argentina staying next to me, and have shared plenty of laughs with some locals.

So now for the fun part! Harmony, my new friend who has been living here for 7 years happened to be in town one night out for dinner at Seeds of Life Cafe (the cutest raw food elixir restaurant on the planet) She overheard me ordering juices, we got to talking and I mentioned I was looking for a place starting July 1st. Turns out she is subletting her house July 1st. This was day 2 for me in Ubud. The excitement has begun. The next evening we go for dinner together at this quaint little restaurant with a friend of hers who shows up as this beautiful ecclectic woman... a clothing designer who has been living here for 15 years. I felt so at peace having met some incredible women who I felt close to instantly. She shared her story of landing here 15 years ago, broke, heartbroken and with a suitcase and it brought tears to my eyes. I said... that feels familiar. We held hands and I felt a true sense of relief. I'm in good hands now. Bali is a new, exciting start for me in so many ways. And I already feel the path revealing itself to me.

So pack your bags my friends! From July to end of November I will be hosting private guests to come for an affordable rejuvenating stay in Bali with me. Kickstart with a 3.5hr Balinese massage, scrub, facial, cream bath for your hair with a to die for scalp massage and soak away your worries in a bath full of rose petals at the spa overlooking the rice fields. Drink juice and gourmet raw food, enjoy yoga and Balinese cooking classes... Send me an email   This email address is being protected from spambots.

Every so often I think we all need to take a step back. Do that inner reflection and ask ourselves if we are living the life we want. If not. Maybe it's time to give yourself the space to figure out your next move. How can you live a more inspired life? What shifts... subtle or major do you need to make moving forward? Who knows... maybe my path is part of your path... and I'll see you in Bali soon. If not, then be sure to check out the next exclusive Get Your Glow Challenge "Summer Bali Glow" launching June 19th for 8 Weeks with live webinars from Bali. Either way... It's Glow Time. <3
