lacylike I came to Bali because I felt powerfully and unexplainably drawn here. The last several days e v e r y t h i n g has changed, shifted, lightened. It feels like my whole life has been a series of events leading me to this experience. I met this man, Punnu. He is my new friend and teacher. He's incredibly real. Incredibly loving. We did a healing session that identified, moved and cleared SO MUCH. Then two days of intense meditation and study. More release. More clearing. My heart is so full. So wide open. I'm just so incredibly grateful for life. For connecting with my Divine. For this scar tissue that used to rule me. For the helpers, teachers, family and friends along the way who have held me, prayed for me, loved me. I feel brand new. And shiny. And happy. #lacyinbali 4h

lacylike Statues and scooters everywhere. Offerings three times a day. Amazing food and service... They always say "excuse me, please enjoy." Kindness is a way of life here. I love Bali. A lot. #lacyinbali #ubud 20h

lacylike This is Jati. I passed him on my way home (within the home stay compound) and stopped to compliment his work in progress. He beamed and asked me if I wanted to see his collection. Of course I said yes. Up the stairs behind him is his own personal gallery. Bright. Open. And Filled with his life's work. #talktostrangers #lacyinbali #ubud 3d

lacylike Daikon Mushroom Miso Soup with a side of clarity this morning... I'm seeing that when I effort to think it gets jumbled. But when I observe and wait it always becomes clear... I feel how necessary it is to wait and to create space for joy while waiting. How a joyful life really works. And how important it is to create a peaceful existence and home and surroundings to keep you grounded while observing. #lacyinbali 1w

lacylike If you've been feeling me now you'll know why... It is because of the offerings. Each one I pass I whisper a gratitude and send love to someone in my life. #thereareofferingseverywhere #lacyinbali 1w

  •   lacylike @mrsmaryagreen they are bamboo poles made for religious festivals and line the streets. They are called penjor. They have little decorated mail box type things on them where offerings are placed. Some are more ornate than others depending on the occasion. 1w

lacylike I was invited to the home of a local family. The father teaches language classes and we spent time talking together. I shared information about processed foods, organic foods and the problems with pesticides. He shared SO MUCH information about his culture and I've been devouring the memories of it already. I learned little phrases to say thank you, hello, how's it going. His wife and 3 daughters served cakes and coffee (I asked for water, no caffeine for me, makes me crazy). The little green ones were my favorite. They were sure to inform me that the green color comes from the leaf of a plant. "No artificial! Is leaf!" It's topped with grated coconut (sooooo good) and then with a sugar sauce. I ate them both ways and prefer them without the sugar. The cake is usually served for religious ceremonies and is rare today so it was a huge honor to be presented with and get to eat them.

lacylike This guy is 58. He climbs 10 Palm trees twice a day to collect the sap from the flowers to make coconut palm sugar. He could do as many as 50 when he was younger.

When I showed him our photo he laughed so hard and covered his mouth. I'll remember that moment for a long time.
I loved watching him go up to cut the flowers and allow the sap to drain out into what look like coconut shells on strings but they are a thick rubber. Sorta is like the maple syrup of the tropics. Once he brought the syrup down it was boiled over a fire in a coconut shell. Once most of the water has evaporated they remove it from the heat and another step is taken to further dehydrate it so it hardens and then they shave it up and it looks like the sugar we are used to seeing.
It tastes fresh and reminiscent of brown sugar. This is not palm sugar. This is coconut palm sugar. Your Bali loving health coach still wants you to use organic raw local honey, organic maple syrup or organic dates to sweeten in your kitchen and keep sugar out of your daily life and off the list of ingredients of foods that you're eating with labels. #lacyinbali

lacylike Woke up at 3 am feeling like I was being called to. I laid in bed (and took a selfie, as one does). But seriously I laid in bed and just listened. I felt peaceful but like something was definitely happening. Then I talk to my sister later in the day and learn that was the exact moment she was doing an angel reading for me and meditating on me. Woah!
When she sent me the reading I was in (and still am) so much gratitude for every word. So much resonating. So affirming. I feel like I've received an incredible gift! I'm wondering why I've waited til now after she's been doing this work for two years? Trusting the perfect timing of it all. "Exploration is a word that keeps coming up again and again for you. This trip, this moment, this present creation in your life is about exploration, about exploring yourself with detached curiosity, about letting go of the parts of you that you’re stubbornly holding onto..." So here I go with detached curiosity into a new day of exploration here in Bali. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with me sis! Truly!
