Integration back into daily life has not been easy.
After almost 3 weeks in Magic Bliss Land, deep in the flow of constant conscious events & classes, eating the most incredible food, surrounded by stunning landscape and beautiful people living with pure intention, devotion, love & mindfulness and feeling completely inspired... the transition back into work and home life has been anything but smooth. I have been feeling sad and dark and low.
But as I process my feelings I remind myself of the bat, who visited me often during my time on magic Mama Bali. Bats are sacred animals to the Balinese, representing the dark & the light, reminding us to honor both, within all things, others & ourselves. We have highs & we have lows... and it is important to be patient and take extra good care of ourselves when we need it during the low times... take a walk in nature, practice yoga, get in the ocean, get a massage, cook an organic, nourishing meal, spend time with animals, spend time in solitude... If we don’t know dark, we won’t know light.✨🦇✨

Om Swastiastu from my last few moments on Mama Bali. Leaving this magic place is so hard. So grateful for all of the connections made here the last 2.5 weeks- with Sisters & Brothers, old & new.
So happy to spend time today with this Sister, @drjinju_womenssoulcoach who is my flow arts sensei. If it wasn’t for this Goddess, I would have never even tried to dance with hoop, poi or fire. Wow, I cannot imagine my life without flow arts. Eternally grateful for you, Jinju.
Love you & Nova so much, see you soon. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti.💖
I have this new thing... everything that scares me, I force myself to do.
Coming back here thinking about logistics and wanting to do ALL THE THINGS efficiently, I considered scooting but was very fearful & many people at home told me NOT to do it because it’s so sketchy... (5x the population of Oahu but the same size island, driving on the left side of the road, I hadn’t driven a motorbike of any kind in over 10 years, etc.)
But I did it anyway. I turned FEAR into MINDFULNESS. Instead of being SCARED, I chose to be MINDFUL, FOCUSED and fully PRESENT on our sexy 2nd chakra scooter, which I named Shakti. ✨🧡🛵🧡✨
I’m a few days late but I’ve been fully in the flow & totally present here in this magical land.
What an honor to spend World Yoga Day here on Mama Bali. I am in continuous awe and so inspired by all of her beauty- her landscape, her people, her creatures, her constant sacred ceremony.
I am grateful. I am present. I am honored. I am here.
I’ve just landed on Mama Bali. The moment the wheels touched the land here I am hit with waves of the most intense chicken skin from my toes through the crown of my head... The magic already moving through my body. I am so honored and grateful to be back here. I am open and ready to receive all of the abundance and expansion she has in store for me... 🕉🦋💜💦
It is terrifying to post a video of myself singing and playing my ukulele but I’m doing it for 2 reasons.
#1 - It’s my Sissy’s birthday so I sing this song that I wrote, to her today.
#2 - I am conquering my fears, stepping way outside of my comfort zone... because that is where the magic lives.✨
This is the second half of the birthday song, beginning with a new verse we added (Happy Birthday in Tahitian) while in Tahiti last month for my birthday. ✨ia ‘oa’oa i to ‘oe mahana fānaura’a✨ to my big sister @angeladeemaguire and mauruuru to my sister @noelanilove for always encouraging me to activate my 5th chakra, by sharing my voice and speaking my truth. 💙💙💙
There are still a few spots left to join this AMAZING Sister for her Shakti Goddess Retreat in Bali... June 25- July 1! I can’t wait to be back in MAGIC BALI with her and YOU!! The time is NOW! Let’s go!! ✨💖@noelanilove @noelanihawaii
As I begin to prepare for another ✨magical✨ journey back to ✨MAGIC BALI✨, my heart feels like it is going to explode 💖💖💖 I will be joining my Sister Goddess, @noelanilove for her Shakti Goddess Retreat June 25-July 1. My visit to Bali with her last year was a life-altering experience. I transformed & expanded in more ways than I could have ever imagined in this sacred land of constant ceremony and abundance and came home more activated and inspired than I have ever been.
If you have ever felt called to venture to Bali, I cannot recommend this more to you, NOW.

Grateful to be alive. Grateful to thrive. Grateful for health, happiness & abundance. Grateful to be fully embraced by such a magical place with amazing sisters on the anniversary of my arrival to Mama Earth. So grateful for this life. 🧡
