After I had been in Perth Australia for 5 days, we packed our bags and headed for Bali. I had no idea what to expect, but I knew deep within me that I would forever be changed. We arrived at 12:30am and headed out of the airport to get a cab to Ubud. After an intense encounter with about 50 cabbies who approached us with no reservations or boundaries, we headed into the unknown.
We went through Kuta as if we were going 75 miles per hour, trying to figure out how the hell to count rupiah, we felt a sense of stress we did not anticipate. Once we centered our minds and reminded ourselves to trust in the universe, we arrived at a sketchy road that took us straight to an oasis. The Payogan Villa was our refuge, and in that space, we found solitude and grounding. It was a hidden fortress tucked away in the jungle of Bali. Through the chaos that is Bali, there is an energy like you have never felt.
The same is to be said about our journey in this life. You must go through the chaos to arrive at the gates of the oasis. Bali reminded me of what I once knew. It is a place I am not familiar with in this life, but my soul knew very well. Life times before it took my soul into its grasp and taught me great truths. Bali's high vibrating energy woke me up, shook me, and showed me what I had forgotten. I am forever changed by knowing those feeling again.
Suksma Bali! Namaste.
