I came here with the hopes of finding something to grab onto, something that would make me feel whole again.
First day in I was ready to leave & just book it home.
It’s a feeling I can’t really describe other then the thought of ‘what was I doing here?!’ Kept going over and over in my head.
When I arrived at my bungalow I was slapped in the face with loneliness.
It was at this moment where self reflection had kicked into gear.
I was determined to find a shala where I could bring my mat each day and let my breath & body heal what felt like a still broken heart.
I walked 40min in Bali humidity to make it to my first practice.
Still unsure if I could build up the courage to rent a scooter.
After that first class...courage found me.
The teacher has this undefinable energy & presence, I’m drawn to her practice & find myself there each day.
I walk alone, I sit alone, I eat alone, I sleep alone ... I no longer feel ‘ALONE’ like the alone as we know it.
I’m surrounded & have always been surrounded by infinite love, I feel that so strongly now it’s almost touchable.
From these practices & my first few days here on this magical island, I take & share with you... ‘Kiss the earth with your feet every step you take. With each inhale & exhale, be present, In this presence draw in all your hopes & dreams & release them straight back out again so that someday you will stumble upon them when it’s time’
Today...I stumbled 🙏
