Wanderlust

Ever since I’ve started work at my new job, which happens to be a major travel agency, the ideas for travelling have started creeping up again.
Mind you, traveling and NOT moving.

I am going to be turning 30 this November and I am feeling like it’s kind of a big deal; so this year I want to do something special and go somewhere exotic. There are a few destinations on my list but the following are what I’ve come up with so far:

– Cuba; this destination is at the top of my list because there are just so many things that attract me to this country; the location itself (Caribbean), the culture and music (Salsa), the food and the atmosphere. Not to mention that they still have the old school American cars that I absolutely love. It would be an ideal vacation as it would be mixed with a beach break as well as culture infusion :). Totally see myself chillin’ on the beach with a Cuba Libre and a fat cigar. To go salsa-dancing afterwards in one of the many brilliant clubs there.

bali

– Indonesia; While I wouldn’t be able to see all of the islands, I feel like this would be an obvious choice. My roots lie here and I’ve never been to Asia. It’s an absolutely breathtaking country combined with the culture and great weather. However, if I go here I’d want to stay for at least a month and so that might not the best option considering I’d also want to tour more of South-East Asia as well as Australia/NZ.

– Hawaii; to be specific Kaua’i. I’ve always wanted to visit Hawaii mostly because of it’s Polynesian appeal while still being able to speak English. I’ve heard that Kaua’i has absolutely spectacular sunsets (I love sungazing), beautiful beaches and again wonderful food. I’d also be able to swim with dolphins here and go snorkeling. Also hiking is supposed to awesome on the island. Not to mention that a lot of movies were filmed in Kaua’i ( I am a big movie nerd) such as the first Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, oh and Pirates of the Caribbean. I mean come on! How awesome would that be?

After that it really starts to become destinations which should be for long vacations only. I wish that I had my drivers license so I could rent a convertible Ford Mustang and cruise the entirety of Route 66 but that’ll have to wait until a few years from now.

Being around my new colleagues has definitely sparked my wanderlust again, as I hear their stories about all the countries they’ve been to. In that way I feel like I haven’t seen anything yet and I used to think I was quite well-travelled! With this new job, I will have 500 euro travel-allowance which I’ll be able to put towards my 30th birthday celebration combined with any other discounts I might be able to get.

So far 2014 seems to be going in a much better direction that previous years; I seem to have found myself and also seem to understand how I tick much better now. I am someone who just floats on the wind, not caring where it takes me next. Which is why I won’t ever be able to tell where I am going to end up 10 years from now. I am ever changing, ever evolving. It kind of scares me to hit the big 30 at the end of the year, mostly because I don’t feel a day over 21. A few years ago I thought I might have ended up married with a family, mortgage and a golden retriever (stereotypical obviously) by now. Now I see that I don’t feel that need at all yet; there’s still TOO much to experience for ME before I am able to commit to a tied down life like that. I’ve just pretty much started living and am not about to give it up.
Not long ago, I was so ready to throw it all away. Throw in the towel and just off myself because my future looked so incredibly bleak and empty. It’s at this moment in time hard for me to imagine how I could’ve been so low. I am careful when I say this moment in time because I know myself, and I have the ability to relapse quickly. However, so far this year I’ve been doing good. Just a couple of low days here and there but nothing like the all-consuming black cloud that swallows me up and keeps me prisoner.

Anyways, that’s it for today. 🙂 For now I’ll be day-dreaming about the below setting.

The truth about travelers

Awesome post. Definitely identified with it

infinite satori

Press play first.

_DSC7058 copy

We have been called many things. Travelers, by default. But we like to be called nomads. Explorers. Vagabonds. Adventurers. Wayfarers. Modern gypsies. Wanderers. We’ve adopted them all. A growing breed of humans with restless feet and the inability to stay still, the inability to stay in one place.

That is who we are. And that’s just the gist of it.

We come from all walks of life, from bustling gray colored cities, sleepy beach towns, snow-covered metropolises, small villages nestled in between lush green mountains, we come from everywhere. But our inner gravity always brings us to the same place… the road.

We deem courage weighs more than money when it comes to travel. We’re not rich, not financially well-off and we don’t travel for luxury. Our money does not come from rich parents, trust funds, or whatever privileges you think we have in order to maintain…

5 Top Secrets To Happiness

Another wonderful post. Wanted to share it.

The Truth Warrior

The Truth Warrior

I think the majority of us in this world want to be happy, whether we know it or not. At times it can be easier said than done with all that life brings us and we can forget how to just be simply happy. They say the goal behind every goal is happiness. I would agree with that. When we choose to be happy, our life just flows and that happiness can have a positive affect on everybody that we meet. When we are not happy however, that affects everybody too.

I think Esther Hicks from her book “Ask and it is given” has a great quote about happiness;

“The greatest gift that you could ever give to another is your own happiness, for when you are in a state of joy, happiness, or appreciation, you are fully connected to the Stream of pure, positive Source Energy that is truly…

Madness of Twin Flames

Great post, right in time for Valentine’s Day. Had to repost.

Relationship Reinvented

ckquote
Twin Flame Madness….

During the moment you encounter this connection a shift happens in you that shows you Forever.. This is often the euphoric stage of the connection that is always going to be there until mind noise is activated.. As this happens something else comes to light, the activation of the truth about what you have been doing and how you interact in the world of form.. This relationship or union as it were, is filled with a subtle underlying connection that is always going to be in effect as though of the pull to the other person outside you. This is the error of what this means as it comes to how we have always had a relationship or a connection.

The lens we see through when it comes to how we view the world, and how we survive in it alone brings about a very powerful light…

Seek Your Truth

Over the last 5 years I can safely say that I am nowhere the same person I used to be. Actually the last 5 years feel a bit more like 10 years.

And to be even more honest, I am just finally starting to come down off the headspin those years have given me.
So much has been packed in such a short amount of time and I am not sure if I ever really dealt with it all.
But as said previously, I’ve definitely changed.

Some is for the better, some not. I’ve had some time to spend at home now the last 2 months which has helped. I seem to sort of have an accord with my depression now which has stayed away for the better part of 1.5 months. Instead I’ve journeyed inward into myself, to figure out what it really is what I want and not anybody else. I did it to find my truth. I did it to find out what makes me tick and what makes me love.
Unfortunately with that journeying inward, I’ve also become a lot more self-absorbed and might’ve been neglecting personal relationships.
However I don’t think there’s another way I could’ve done it at this point in time. images (13)

It’s no secret that I don’t have friends and part of that is because I am just not a very good friend. I enjoy time by myself preferably more than spending time with anyone else. However, the friends I have had I would’ve gone to the edges of the world for them. But then something would happen, scare me off because I so loathe confrontation. Poof, friendship over.
The reason why I did that is because I was so insecure in myself and how others perceived me.
It’s safe to say now that I don’t give two shits anymore. Since finding my truth, I feel 4x stronger than before.
I might not know where exactly I want to go but I sure as hell know where I DON’T want to be headed to.

It’s like over the years all the struggles I’ve had, made me weak at first. I climbed into the victim-role and submitted myself to that low vibration, never making it out of that stage. But now looking at myself, I see the awesomeness, the strength and the potential.
So the putting myself down-thing is now over. Ultimately everything that happens is not in my hands but what I do with the outcome of it, is.

Sometimes I wish I knew back then what I know now. Things could’ve been so much different but then I realize, that I would never have known without that experience in the first place. Life is just so damn short and I don’t want to be dead before I’ve lived it the way I want to.
There are so many things I’ve been wanting that I haven’t achieved for years; I’ve tons of ideas for tattoos I want, but never got them. I’ve wanted a telescope to gaze the stars with. Such simple things as going to random gigs to watch musicians I never even heard of and meeting kindred spirits. To many people that sounds like a normal weekend, but not to me because I’ve had so much fear for so long. Sometimes I think I’ve been deceased for the better part of 2 years.
When I transitioned I promised myself I’d take good care of my ‘new’ body, instead it’s gone the opposite direction. Thankfully I’ve realized I actually really enjoy working out hard but I just have to push myself over the limit.
I want to blossom into the person I am supposed to be, the best version of me.

There’s no way anybody is ever going to take my truth away from me again. It’s mine and I will live my life the way I want to regardless of what anyone thinks or says.

Return of the Cosmic Goddess (77min Symphony)

Spirited’s 3rd and final Global Release for the year of 2013 and the First Global Release for 2014

“Return of the Cosmic Goddess” featuring our very own The Spiritual Catalyst AKA Teal Scott.

♫ . ♫. ♫ .
“Return of the Cosmic Goddess” is a new age Symphony, an OBDE (Out of body Dance Experience), the future of music where an musical piece can never be fitted into one particular genera, it’s an orchestra of naturally synchronised samples made from recordings all around the globe; both natural and man made elements, capturing essence of pure acoustic & electronic roots & vibrations mixed with lively recored eastern & western percussions, including all instruments tuned into 528hz and above healing frequencies, to cleanse your mind body & spirit.

Inspiring vocal wisdom lines from Teal Scott will be guiding the vibrations through out the whole 77 minute experience, ending with a 12 minute 3rd eye opening meditational guide.

There is more to the album than a mixture of great vibrations, it’s an statement from 4 individual artists ( Teal Scott: The Spiritual Catalyst Fan Page, Misha Whirlwind, Anna Marlena, Gihan Dilruksh Mackay) from 3 different countries (USA, Sri Lanka & Austria), from 4 different backgrounds.

It’s a statement to the world which reflects that separation is merely illusion, and that true artists see no boundaries, they see no separation, they only see each other in themselves.

We are all extensions of source energy, we are all born healers, we all can be healed, existence is a celebration.
