I've gotten some requests from my inner child recently. One of those is to draw and paint! And here I am in Bali, which is full of artists, painters, sculptors. So I am granting her request! 🎨 My friend Nicole told me about @kuncitketut so today I came and got a drawing lesson from him. I loved sitting in his shop while the loud motorbike sounds of Bali went by. It's easy to get into a routine now that I've been in Bali for 7 months so it was fun to mix things up ! I'm painting Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of arts. As I draw and paint her I'm receiving her creative medicine. 🎨🎹🎻🎤🎭
That's how ya do it!
The pink-haired trees! One of my favorite Bali treasures 🌸
Galungan in Bali! My host family invited me to join in on the prayers at their family temple this morning. So beautiful to experience grace in its many forms 🌸🌺🌼
Yummy traditional Balinese food made by my host Wayan with love. Tomorrow is Galungan celebration in all of Bali - celebrating good overcoming evil, negative energies releasing and good energies coming in 🌺🌸🌼 This is my whole journey in Bali, to do this work within myself and so powerful to have a day where the whole island is dedicated to it! Talking about negative energies might sound vague and new agey, but what I'm talking about is the fear, illusions, and stories that create pain and separation. They can be so sneaky and seem so real! The way out is through and so my journey here has been to look at them square in the face. To discover what is the truth and what is some age-old story or pattern playing out. And each time a false story is illuminated (usually through some sort of scary conversation with the other human being I'm projecting that story onto - holy shite has that been growth times 1,000,000,000) -- more light, more love, more freedom, more connection comes through. So yes yes yes. I will celebrate this day. I will celebrate and invite in more freedom, more illumination, more truth.
Bali Magic - the way this place just plops beautiful beings and deep connections right in your lap. Like these sisters! Farewell to @_erinconnors_ as you journey to Aussie land! 💕✨💕✨💕✨💕
Beach bliss 😌
