Temps pluvieux, p'tit déjeuner réconfortant ;) Crème Budwig forever ! Laitage, huile vierge, fruit, oléagineux, céréale crue moulue, sucre non raffiné... et de la noix de coco pour la gourmandise :)
Hey Free Birds, do these Winter months have you forgetting to drink water?
Trust me you're not alone.... but did you know your body depends on water to survive?! Try adding coconut water to your day. It is low in carbohydrates, contains electrolytes and is super rich in potassium, so will help keep your hydration levels up. I am having up to a litre a day atm and can feel the difference. Give it a go!
It has been so long since I wrote my last blog post, I don't even know how to get back into it. It seems like a life time ago that I was in South India drinking coconuts and hitting the beaches. Having my gear stolen hasn't exactly motivated me to write since I lost basically all my photos and my diary to someone else in desperate need 😡😠
I'm about to board a train, the longest ride I've had to withstand during this journey, a straight 19 hour train from Somnath to Ujjain. (it's bound to be longer) [its already late to begin with!!] What I'm hoping is that out of boredom I decide to get somewhat creative and write a little bit of what I can remember haha!
The South is enriched with culture and history that has mostly remained untainted from invading forces such as the Muslim and the British. It's just the way I like it, old school hindu 🕉🔯
Purging...I've done so much of it within the last few months. To get to the icky stuff deep within, I had to pay attention to what I was doing that aided in avoidance of it. One by one, I started peeling back the layers by letting go what was not serving me. I quit drinking beginning of June. I've started fasting for 24-hours every week-my addiction to sugar was real, and it was hard to quit...emotional eating...whether happy or sad or excited or anxious... Daily meditation and pranayama. Lots of yin. Lots of legs-up-the-wall. Lots of breathing. Journaling until my hand ached from writing so much. Self discoveries. Discovering so much.
I met with a Vedic Astrologer while in Bali when I first arrived. He said that he saw me benefiting from nightly routines. And lots of writing. Then I went on to surf and meet lots of people and having beers with them and staying in a dorm room and going out dancing... Not writing, no night time ritual. Pshhh...unless if having fun was what he meant...
Now. I'm here. Months later, dinner before sundown, back in my room, reading, writing, stretching, breathing. And slowly, peeling back layer by thick, callous layer of ignorance, ego driven, belief that lies in the core of my being.
Gaining clarity and understanding. It's without it's hardships, but when it's been written in the stars, it's a divine requirement that can't be avoided.
