Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Toxic

So I was in a meditation class and we were focusing on the chakras. The teacher asked us to radiate love and energy outward from the heart chakra. It was very cool. I mean we’ve all felt that heart energy before, but I had never tried to radiate it outward at will. Was very powerful. So it got me thinking. We really do make a choice in what we do with what we feel. Radiate it out or encase it inward. this is really obvious when you get on an elevator. Everyone seems to suck their personal energy inward… trying not to invade the energy of others around them. But then sometimes you get someone who just doesn’t care. They see you. They acknowledge and share their energy. No polite inward elevator etiquette. Try it one time. Open your energy up when you get on a crowded elevator instead of drawing inward. So I digress. This all got me thinking about how I am. I have always felt things deep (see sensitive post) but have learnt to take the emotions and energy inward to dull them. In a perfect world that emotion and energy is all positive So no big. But we don’t live in a perfect world (not sure I’d want to). So when $h!t happens, the energy you hold inward theoretically could be pretty toxic with chronic health side effects? So maybe approaching life without a filter is a step in living a healthy life. We all know someone like that. If you look good they tell you. If you look tired they tell you. But in an honest (not laced in toxic malice) kind of way.

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
