Nyepi ~ Balinese New Year.
A big event here in Bali where the locals prepare with much passion the most glorious demons to create a parade the day before Nyepi and burn them.
As they were evoking a lot of energy with the preparations, so the energy of chaos was tangible for all of us I feel.
Our inner demons came awake, old wounds were scattered open and all the bullshit we carry or believe in was presented in our face.
After this day of burning the demons, there is Nyepi or Silent day.
The whole island is in silence, nobody is working, even the airport is closed down, everybody stays inside, there is no electricity, no light, no wifi and this all to fool the spirits that there is nobody here.
Interesting to be here and to experience this event. I am staying in a house with friends for my last weeks in Bali.
Personally I love moments of silence and this day was very welcoming after some pretty deep intense processes. With each other and within myself.
I never experienced such a feeling of rest and peace here in Ubud.
The energies are settling down again.
The silence outside invites the silence inside and vice versa.
The mind is calmed down and I enjoy resting in my own being. No distraction, only nature around me. Feeling the rain on my naked skin, observing how the land is being cleansed with the purifying water of the Heavens.
Lying on bed I feel the spirits working on me in a very soft way.
Feeling how they embrace me and how I can rest in their arms. And as I am relaxing they are merging inside of me and taking me to very ancient places of my soul. Integrating parts I have forgotten.
Connecting me with soul family on energetic level and whispering that Love is always present and connects us way more deeper than our personality or human psyche can act on.
And then the door of your heart can open and you can enter your homecoming journey of remembrance.
Thank you Bali!
And happy new year ??
