Bali Day 9

I woke up and rolled out of bed. I was planning on hanging out till noon at the hotel before check out but I ended up getting a bug, as in lets go. I emailed my new place of stay in Canggu and asked if I can check in sooner. They said absolutely.

I realized my back was out of alignment and was hurting, you know the one, lower back stiff can’t bend. Yep that one. I said to self nope, we are not babying you we are going to stretch and keep moving. The reason it was hurting is a couple of different reasons. 1. due to eating leftovers, causing an undesirable outcome. 2. from the spiritual aspect of no security. I am in a beautiful place and moving one day at a time and living in the complete unknown. So my body is reacting. My body loves to be stable, however we are in times where stability is only in your faith.

I jump in the pool to help my body stretch out, got out and went for my last breakfast there. It was a breakfast buffet of deliciousness. Of course it doesn’t come near the Wavi Treehouse but I can not compare that place with anything.

I get back to the room and hang out for a while, making sure everything is packed, I talk to my dad for some time and decide it’s time. I contact Gojek and make my way out.

The drive to Canggu was a lot shorter than I anticipated and the driver said because no one is here. I disagreed as I saw many motor bikes on the streets. We laughed. We found the address and my driver was unable to make it down the tiny road. So we grabbed my belongings and walked the rest of the way.

The Umah Bamboo Canggu is tucked away on this little property with 9 little huts. Equipped with a bed on the bamboo floor, 1 cabinet, and the bathroom. Everything is so low to the ground here and with my back feeling the way it does…geez. Cute villa, smells like bamboo because the entire place is made from bamboo.

I put all my stuff away and saw 2 guys at the kitchen and 2 girls at the pool. The girls spoke another language and the guys both spoke English. Grateful I was able to communicate with someone. lol. We introduced one another and talked about our current situation. Everyone who is a foreigner is in the same boat. It feels so good that there is quite a lot of us.

I got here around 930am. by the time I finished laundry and jumped in the pool it was 11. I remember looking at my phone and being like holy cow its so early still. So i needed a game plan. I need to get out and explore. But I need a shower first. By the time I came out and was getting ready to go, everyone was gone except a couple from the Czech Republic. They were so nice and helped me figure out how to get a gojek here, because the address is quirky on the the app.

I finally get one to find me with the help from my new friends and I was off to the beach, Batu Bolong. The trip was 8rph, not bad for what would have been a 45 min walk amd getting lost, lol. I left probably around 1pm.

I walk straight to the beach. There is several beach bars and hundreds of surfers. I just sat down on the sand and watched for sometime. As I sat there I started to get hungry so I got up and brushed myself off and made my way down the street reading everyone’s menu. I remembered to contact dude from Ubud, who said he would be in Canggu. Dude’s name is Jason. So I hit him up and we decided to meet for sunset on the beach, happy hour at 530ish.

I walked around till then looking for some grub. I found this little spot called Nonii’s. I sat there and enjoyed my food with my coconut. Totally need to stay hydrated around here, you sweat everything out. I can’t even imagine July and August, peak season. If I had to take a guess I would say it’s probably like Texas.

It was about 515pm by the time I was done which was perfect timing. Headed back to the beach and waited for my friend on the beach. He arrived and we went to the Wave, bar\restaurant and had a magnificent view of the surfers and sunset. His friend V came to meet us. She is from Australia originally but has traveled and worked in many other countries since. Now residing in Bali she teaches singing lessons via online.

We hung out there for a couple of cocktails and made our way to the Old Man. Another bar that gets wild after 11pm. Mind you it’s friday here. I was ready to go home and knock out as I haven’t been out this late in so long and have been out literally all day. They looked at me and said, I know you are tired but I think you should come out. Being that I’m in for new experiences, I said yes. I have no reason whatsoever to go home besides go to sleep. I can sleep tomorrow!

Cold Coconut Water

We hopped on the motor bikes and went to the Faraway bar, not sure where it is but I was there. Live music and lots of fun people. I just had water and coconuts. The coconuts were cold which I was stoked about. I have not, since I’ve been here had a cold coconut! So refreshing. This English guy comes up to me and asks me why American women wear sunglasses at night on their head. I laughed and replied back stating that I have been out all day, since 1 this afternoon. And by that time it was 1030pm.

Jason gave me a ride back to the villas around 1130pm. So grateful as I was so tired.

If its not one thing…

This month has been very interesting so far…

Ever feel like it’s just one thing after another? Well, this month has been like that for me and its only been 14 days.

Feb 2 I had an art show at a holistic expo. I met a woman named Rebecca Packard. Wasn’t exactly sure what she did as far as her services go. But this is what she does…

Rebecca Packard- Certified Body Code & Emotion Code Practitioner.

Whatever that means, right?!

Well, I wanted to know. She asked me what I wanted cleared, blockages wise. I said abundance. We can all use that, just saying. Anyways, I allow her into my energy field and I started to ask her questions. She was in her zone and started saying words out loud. I felt the need to write them down. By the end it was a rather large list I had written and she looks at me and says, you are released and cleared of that list you wrote down. I look at the list and was like, ok, I’m going with it. She explained how I keep myself safe from allowing those things happen to me again and that was that.

After leaving her, I physically felt different. We described as emotionally drunk. I literally felt like I was buzzed but had nothing to drink. It was really cool to try something different. I have added her to me support team, as I feel it’s important to have people help the healers.

By the end of the weekend I noticed I had a huge bruise on my left calf. Weird because I don’t recall banging my leg against anything. I let it go as it got blacker and bluer.

Sunday night I checked my emails before bed, I don’t suggest doing that by the way, and I read an acceptance letter from an interview I had on that previous friday, Feb 1st. Thats great that I got the job and all but my soul knows what I need. When my work schedule changed to only working 3 shifts a week. I was grateful. I can have more ME time. My hearts desire said we will not be getting another job so we can do just that, self-care and love. That was back in Dec maybe.

The only reason I went on this interview, as it turns out, was because now that I live with my parents, their belief systems do not match mine. Some of the things would say to me crept into my subconscious mind and next thing you know I’m beginning to think, I have no money, OMG! I need a job, all in a frantic. Rebecca helped clear their belief systems out of me.

So when I read the email before bed, I was so nervous about how I was going to respond. So much so that I woke in the morning and my center lower back was locked. Not like sciatica problems, like disc problems. I could barely move.

Lower back issues have to do with security, finances, stability, fear. Needless to say I had to figure out exactly what was going on and I did. My parents old belief systems and my fear of how to respond. Becoming aware of what your body is telling is huge. When things like this happen, that’s what I try to do immediately so I am not in pain.

So after meditating on it and asking my guides for their assistance my back started to feel better, I did also go to the chiropractor because that always helps!

So right in the end of my healing for my back, my pelvic area begins to hurt, which then became excruciating. I was laid up on the floor where I had been stretching my back for the past week and my mom comes in and says, are you ok? Did it get worse? I told her it has nothing to do with my back, but it certainly was affecting it, for sure.

I texted my friends in California, asking for their help. They both responded, saying that basically I havent truly given myself full attention, it was suggested to feed my goddess. Like if you don’t wear lipstick to work, start. I have been wanting a pedi-cure, so i am going to go get one. Self Love, Self Care, Self Pamper. Wine and dine myself, if you will.

Which makes absolute sense. That all happened yesterday. After we figured that out, my pelvic area started to not hurt so bad.

I woke up this morning feeling great. I went outside to go see about moving my car, from all the ice and snow, I don’t even make it to my car and I slip and fell totally on my back. Thank god I had my hood on because I smacked that pretty good.

I feel that my fall this morning had to do with reminding me what I need to do. Feed my goddess. I woke up feeling great, thinking nothing of going through my morning routine. Not thinking about what yesterdays events taught me. So for me to slip on this ice was a solid reminder that the information rcvd yesterday has solidified into a compact state so that I may internalize it.

I look up everything, someone has been through exactly what I have been through so somewhere out there, there is helpful information. This last one about ice and falling…

In case you have something you want to look up… I always type in

“spiritual meaning of…”

Usually something that resonates with me comes up.
