    The Power of Prayer

    The Power of Prayer What is Prayer? Why Pray? Here in Bali there is a strong Hindu tradition, although the majority of neighbouring islands are mainly Muslim. Everyday you see the offerings people place and say a prayer to the gods on the street, in Temples and all around the island. A prayer can be conversation with god or your higher self whatever we you wish to call this. A spirit maybe. We can pray to our guides or Angels for help. We can pray to our ancestors – in times of need we remember to pray, in everyday we often forget.  Prayer is an everyday occurrence in Ubud, you see people praying and…

    Mala Mantra Maker

     Mala Mantra Maker Introducing Mala Mantra Maker: Mala’s are spiritual beads strung on a thread of cotton or string, 108 beads all together. Historically the 108 beads represent the 108 names for god. One large bead called the Guru bead meets the bottom with a tassel. There are many reinterpretations of the beads. I see the thread as the life-force holding our mind, body and soul together and the beads representing the hopes and dreams of our lives; whilst we live out our life on the physical plane. Making Mala Beads In India When I was in India early this year (now last year as it was January 2017) I visited Auroville,…

    The Power of Sound Healing

    The Power of Sound Healing We all know the power of sound, whether it’s through our favourite song or band we love to listen to; we are temporarily transported to another place, time and feel the joy the music creates within us. Most of us can remember where we were what we were doing and with whom when we hear a particular song. Music and sound have a powerful element within our subconscious. The power of sound through music transforms our mood and gets us to get up and dance and feel the joy of life, so it probably comes as no surprise that sound is extremely healing. Sound Healing…

    Sound Healing with the Gong

    Sound Healing with the Gong Sound Healing with the Gong: I recently took a couple of Gong Workshops. I have always been interested in sound healing and for one reason or another, I have never taken a course. I have been to quite a few gong and sound healing sessions whilst in Bali, but never really thought about taking a workshop to learn myself. I heard Mehtab Benton a Gong Master was doing a workshop in Ubud and I remembered his name as my Yoga teacher in the UK had recommended him in the past and so when I saw he was in Bali I jumped at the chance to…

    Finding what you want in your life

    Finding what you want in your life Finding what you want in life. I have never really known what I wanted to do in my life. Not having had a clear direction or a really strong passion to follow has meant that I have fallen into a variety of careers. It has made me try out new areas I would never have imagined and I have often changed jobs in between traveling and trying to live abroad. I am once again at a new crossroads in my life where I would like to learn some new skills and utilize the ones I have. Ask yourself the question if you could…

    Finding home

    Finding home… Currently living in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia Finding Home: It’s nearly a year since I left the UK in search of a place to call home. What actually is a home? Is it a place, or the people that reside it in. I guess I was thinking that it would be a place, as I have only myself to live in the home. Without going in to any unnecessary detail I have suddenly found myself, single again and in search of a new country and place to call home. For now I have found myself unexpectedly and happily living in Ubud, Bali, a place where I feel a sense of…
