Bali Trip - Day 6


This is it! The last chapter in the story I have added to my life that has changed me in every way. Even thought it was 'just' a week I feel calmer, clearer & more energised and on the right path with life. The lessons I take away from this trip I will remember forever & I am blessed to have found Bliss Sanctuary for Women to have experienced this journey on & with. 

DAY 6

I'm journaling early this morning as I sit overlooking the pool drinking a coffee listening to all the beautiful birds sing. I'm about to ride my bike the 10 minute journey to yoga for the last time to do the class of Kundalini. I still can't believe it is esoteric based yoga and I had only just started learning about that before my trip - some things are just meant to be. I do love how life works out like that. As my journey is drawing to an end - I depart bliss at 2pm for the airport, I am filled with real excitement and anticipation. Almost like I now know clearly what I have to do in life for my goal attainment and am ready to do it. I've realised a lot on this trip and I want to keep learning and growing when I return home. I also think it no coincidence that I've been wanting to learn more about nutrition and food and I end up on the retreat with a vegan raw organic food nutritionist. I can't wait to get home and start visiting my local farmers market for fresh fruit and veggies weekly. I think my time at the market will be a nice way to continue spending quality quiet time with myself. Another lesson I've learnt over here is about not stressing so much over little, or big things. I am in control of my feelings, thoughts and emotions and I have the tools to not work myself up in to stressed states. I have found a beautiful balance and peace over here and I'm determined to emulate that back home.

The two card lessons for today are: Patient - my deep inner peace gives me patience to wait and Reflection. How apt. I know I'll need patience going home and was thinking yesterday how I need to focus on letting things go - small things that are not worth being bothered over.

I feel so blessed to have been able to come on this trip and will always cherish the memories I have made. I feel like my lessons learnt are not things to be left here but the start of something much more greater and much more deeper. I am going home to work on living in the moment more. I constantly think about work or business stuff when I'm out with friends or relaxing on the couch or cooking - anytime! So I am going to stop that like I was able to over here. I just need to be and let live and be grateful and aware of my amazing loved ones, conversations and moments in time I'll never get back so I will be living in them.

In 2 hours I'll be on a big jet plane back to reality and the daily grind where I'll be challenged to not remember all my beautiful lessons and growth. I have strength however and am on a new level of persistance and determination so I can't wait to get back and put myself to action.

Yours in light and love,

Anna xx

  11. I think it's super important to remember that you'd go back to the daily grind. I hope that everyday at home can be as relaxing as everyday at the retreat.
