Bali always triggers huge growth in me and deep healing, my energy upgrades by the day, my mind and vision become clearer, my intuition goes into overdrive and my psychic powers and sensitivity to energy also increase by the day when I am here. It is fast acceleration and rapid upgrades here on The Island of the Gods!
The combo of daily massages, heaps of fresh juices, healthy as kai, the SUN, the light, the local people, good sleeps, minimal alcohol and the like, and the LAND ITSELF is so healing! This whenua is like a balm for my soul and all the energetic layers of the tangata, it is magic here and it brings out the magic in me, and also in my work.
Sometimes it can be hard to keep up with all the creative energy that pulsates through my body once I have been here for a good few weeks or so. My list of things to do (exciting things that I actually WANT to do) just grows and grows and it is honestly hard to keep up with it! I work intuitively in everything that I do, and that includes working on my various projects as and when I feel like it, dipping into different things as I feel guided to, whether that be writing a blog post, creating a video, designing a new e-course, drawing, doing digital art, creating a new limited edition fine art print, or WHATEVER. I love to work this way as an artist, and I love to have several different EXCITING projects on the go. If I get bored or unchallenged I can quickly fall into depression and a horrible internal restlessness - i’ve learned this about myself the hard way!
In Bali my daily life largely consists of waking up when I feel like it (naturally), and then parking up at one of my fav cafes, drinking numerous juices and coffees, writing, journalling, doing my affirmations and #dreamlifecreation planning, and just generally having ME time and CREATION time. For me that is a huge part of my ultimate #dreamlife and it is what is most conducive to my creative flow of energy, and getting OUT what is inside, and bringing my various projects to life.
Everyone is different and everyone has different desires and needs in terms of the best ENVIRONMENT that they need to create around themselves to LIVE and VIBRATE from, in order for their best work and creations to be born out into the world. For me, having great juices and kai on hand PREPARED FOR ME, is paramount and a no-brainer because it means that I don’t have to interrupt my creative flow in order to do something as mundane as cooking (some people LOVE cooking, I don’t).
The future is exciting for me at the moment, my daughter is being well looked after, loved and cared for by her other parents for a stint, which allows me, māmā, to really go hard and bring to life some of my projects that have been waiting patiently on the sideline for me to have that TIME and that SPACE to gestate and then to birth them.
My partner and I have a lot more world travel on our agenda for the coming while, and i’m looking forward to returning to INDIA in February for most of the month (my partners birthday month). I first traveled to India when I was 22, and in fact it was my first big overseas trip outside of Aotearoa and Australia. I haven’t been back since then (i’m now 33) and so i’m really looking forward to visiting GOA again (my favourite part - endless coastline and beachside villages). When I am there I am planning on producing a new fashion collection made from sari fabrics - I have always adored sari fabrics and the Indian aesthetic, since I love bling bling and vibrant colour, it is the perfect fashion scene for me there!
My new collection that I will produce in India is going to include ONE OFF high end blinged out playsuits, some capes, and some gorgeous one size fits all wrap around ensembles, as well as bikini’s made from the fabric off-cuts. When I first went to India ten or so years ago, I also got a whole bunch of dresses and bikinis made up which I bought home in my suitcase and sold on trademe over time, under the name BIKINI BAZAAR. It was super fun doing the photoshoot for those garments on the beautiful beaches - it’s hard to take a bad photo in such a gorgeous natural environment!
I’m also thrilled that I now have deeper CLARITY on what i’m doing with my KUINIKLUB brand, community, and kaupapa and the new direction that we are heading in together as a #kuini #community and #movement. First thing on the agenda is our upcoming KUINIKLUB INNER CIRCLE TEN DAY INTENSIVE that begins on 11 November (the day after my birthday) and runs until 21 November.
I am looking forward to working with my OG mentoring clients, and to going DEEP with some new #kuiniklubbers too! You can purchase your place on our TEN DAY INTENSIVE on the www.kuiniklub.com homepage. The utu/exchange for this deep, intensive, hardcore personal growth and development program is $111NZD.
See you in THE KUINIKLUB INNER CIRCLE!
