Wanna travel to Bali with me? ♥

Bali goddess & chakra retreat

I have some beautiful, inspiring, light-filled, transformative, from-my-heart-to-yours events coming up! Including wellness workshops in NYC this month(!!) (where has the time gone?!) and an epic goddess chakra retreat to Bali this February with my dear friend, Angela Rauscher. See full details here!

I’m ecstatic about these events, particularly the Bali retreat which is SO aligned with everything I stand for, coach others on, blog about, and just basically what I feel I’m here to give to the world. I want to guide and teach others how to access their joy, tune into their intuition, raise their vibrations, uplift their health, and live the best life possible! THIS I feel so strongly about (and if you follow me on insta, you know how much I adore Bali!)

Traveling through Freiburg & hiking the Black Forest

Traveling through the Black Forest, Freiburg

To be honest, travel to Germany has never been big on my radar. I’m a Scandinavia girl, always have been and always will be. And more recently over the past few years I’ve become Southeast Asia-infatuated. But Germany? It’s always been a country that I’ve passed through en route to other destinations, never really devoting large chunks of time there.

I did know about the Black Forest though. And my gosh, did I want to see the Black Forest.

Some thoughts on masculine/feminine energy + travel pics from Prague

Travel in prague

I’ve been hanging out in my masculine for too long. That’s the realisation I came to when traveling through Europe last week. All the telltale signs of being in the thick of it were there: short, shallow breaths, tension in my chest, in my throat, in my abdomen. Being ‘in the head’ and in my thoughts to the point where my intuition sadly took the backseat.

I’ve been tossing around the idea of delving more into this “masculine/feminine energy” topic for a while now but have held back, in part because the scope is so huge. This is also a bit of a hot button issue, as I know some people are quick to take offense at the very suggestion that there are differences between the sexes. We’re all just people and we’re all the same, right? My personal belief is that of course we’re all people but we all have a dominant energy within us. This is an instinctive concept, not an intellectual one.

I’ve learned so much about masculine/feminine energy that’s truly helped me and as you know, we can only write on what we have experienced and can speak to… so I’m going for it and maybe some of this will resonate with others as well.

Exploring Bali

Exploring Bali

What a long few weeks it’s been! I’ve recently returned from traveling in Bali and have taken a bit of a mini breather before coming back to the blog, to recoup, recharge and get settled back into my routines. And I’m excited to finally share some of my travel pics and experiences with you here! Scroll on, as I will be lacing tons of Bali photos throughout today’s post.

Bali for me was one part captivating, two parts mind-boggling.

Mostly due to all the surprising amounts of chaos. Coming from NYC, you’d think I would have seen and experienced it all. But whilst NYC chaos feels mostly centered around hoards of people, Bali chaos is centered around hoards of loud motorbikes, traffic jams, plus the occasional chicken or three running by :)

As if the dizzying stream of motorbikes wasn’t jarring enough, the narrow streets were often teeming with more brightly-coloured goods than I could take in at once… and everyone is trying to get you to buy something. On my first day there it was all too much sensory overload to take in… such a chaotic array of madness and motor sounds oddly set amidst an otherwise peaceful, tropical, sun-drenched backdrop.

That’s all on the immediate surface though.

What you’ll find after settling into Bali a bit longer is a deeply spiritual culture centered around ceremony, prayer, devotion, and blessings. This energy was felt throughout my entire Bali stay. In fact no matter where I went, I was never far from encountering the various beautiful offerings to the gods that the Balinese hand-make everyday.
