I Feel Good!

A month ago, I was supposed to have flown to Manila. It had been two years since I set foot in the city where I was born and raised.

I wasn’t exactly looking forward to the trip though. Manila, after all, is no longer home to me. Faaaaar from what I now consider ‘home.’ But it’s a trip that I needed to take. Need to take — still.

As I wrote in my recent post, that trip didn’t happen. But I will still be taking it. I just don’t know at this point exactly when.

Instead of taking a trip to Manila that was intended partly for me to bring some stuff back to Sugar Beach, I ended up taking a trip away from Sugar Beach — a place that was my home for a year and a half.

And much has shifted, thankfully, in my perceptions and choices since I left Sugar Beach a month ago. In fact, I needed to leave Sugar Beach in order for the shift to happen — especially after all the sh!t that has happened at the resort!

Don’t we sometimes, if not often need to remove ourselves from the place or situation in order to see the Light and to see Life from a different angle — an angle where everything clicks and makes total sense?

I still have to come back for my stuff that I left behind at the resort when I left in haste — with much disgust and distaste! Just as I still have some stuff as well in Manila to come back for — stuff that needs to be sorted and discarded.

Stuff in Sugar Beach. Stuff in Manila.

But that’s all they are. Stuff.

My heart and my soul are certainly no longer in any of those locations. I do know though that there is some completion that needs to happen for me in those places. And it is when I come back for my stuff that such completion will take place.

But before that happens, I needed to take a detour.

The two years that I have been away from Manila provided me with opportunities for growth that I most certainly wouldn’t have experienced had I stay put there.

In fact, my time away from Manila prepared me for my eventual return — whenever that may be — to deal with the energies there more effectively and more appropriately.

Having lived all this time in the seaside and in much less harsh environment, helped me be in a much clearer, calmer and empowered space to begin sorting and organizing my stuff — physical and whatever else. I have become so much more centered and grounded. Transformed. Renewed. Reborn.

Similarly, the one month that I have been away from Sugar Beach has been one of the most transformative phases in my journey. Such growth and shifts in only one month, whew! 

I kid you not.

It’s been quite a while — years, in fact — since I felt the challenges that accompany Mercury Retrograde.

This recent one though has been my most challenging thus far! And I heard with others, too! It was certainly a relief and reassuring to know that it wasn’t simply and only me going nuts! 😀 (How was it with you?)

And part of this recent incredible episode in my journey is me gaining even more clarity with a situation that’s keeping me connected to Manila — energetically and psychically, and painfully I must add. It has something to do with my situation with my family of origin.

I was divinely guided and led to a local shaman. She gave me a most significant piece of information — shocking to others but not quite to me as it was simply a confirmation of what I had long sensed and intuited. Needless to say, I had a light bulb moment. A very bright one at that! 🙂

I cannot just as yet share details about my interactions with the medicine woman. I cannot yet reveal what I was able to unravel and craft as a result of such a magical encounter.

Suffice it to say that all throughout the past month following my departure from Sugar Beach, I have encountered once more the all too familiar energies and themes of manipulation and deception. Betrayal. Abuse. Addiction. Dark energies. Alarmingly dark energies. Uncanny familiar dark energies!

And my growth has come from how quickly and easily I recognized such energies and how differently I dealt with them, yeah!

Hence, more healing and clearing. Purging and cleansing. Opportunities to discern. Opportunities to trust myself more than anyone else. To trust my inner guidance more than ever. Opportunities to enforce boundaries and say no to energies, people and situations that do not honor, support, love and respect me and my Light.

And all these opportunities showed up every single day since I left Sugar Beach — at times, several times during the day! Even to this very day as I’m writing this post!

Speaking of post, I haven’t posted for a while not because there hasn’t been much to share. It isn’t also because I experienced writer’s block. Far from it.

In fact, my writing skills just couldn’t cope with the speed with which Life has been unfolding — joyfully, thankfully! Just as insights and realizations would come to me, I’d start having a new set of experiences that are revealing yet newer insights and giving me even more clarity!

And all these kept leading me back to my Center and my Light, my Truth and my Joy. To be in the Divine Flow once again, yay! 😀

Allow me to end this for now by saying…

After all and despite the chaos and confusion…

the tears and the fears…

the giving up…

the messing up and the f^c#ing up…

I feel oh so good!

I sure hope you feel the same…

And may you enjoy the video below that says it all! 😀

😀 😀

    Glad you are back! I love reading your blog and your journey.
    I too had a very hard Mercury in Retrograde; almost left my partner and still wondering about that. I love him so much, but I know deep down that he isn’t the “one” for me. I have a lot of my past with my ex boyfriend that committed suicide tied to my love now because they used to be best friends.
    He helped me get through it and I know we have a strong spiritual contract and in many past lives we have helped each other out. I want us to always remain friends, but just not sure about the lover part. He is not on the spiritual path like me, but he is open to it; which is nice. But I’d really like to find someone that I can talk to and that will understand me and not want to debate about things.
    I can’t wait to hear more about your shamanic experience. I’ll be looking forward to that one!
    Thank you for your inspiration, sharing and being raw and radical! Love it and you!!
    Blessed Be

    • It’s good to be back. There’s still so much that I want to share but they’re still brewing in the cauldron.

      Romantic relationships can provide us with the deepest and most profound healing and growth opportunities! I gather that you’re having your fair share, and I know you’ll come out of it stronger and transformed! And I also know that you’ll know when the purpose has been served. You’ll know if continuing is still serving a purpose, if it’s time to end it or if what needs to end is the way it stands now and it needs to be redefined into something else. Relationshps can be very complicated and mind-boggling, and only the two people involved know what’s best for them. Thank you for trusting this site as a safe container for you to share your story. I hope the very act of you writing and sharing it helped you get some clarity. I know that’s how it is with me. It is when I write out something (in private or for public consumption) that insights come to me. There’s just something about writing that’s very healing and purifying.

      It may take a while before I am able to share my experience with the shaman. It will express itself and find its way into this site when it needs to.

      You’re most welcome Shawna, and thank you too for appreciating the Light that I AM and what I AM sharing here.

      Blessed be. 😀 ⭐ ❤ ⭐ 😀

        Thanks for your reply to my comment and allowing a safe place for me to share too.

        You know I hadn’t thought of that until you said about writing & sharing giving me clarity. That did make me feel good and vulnerable in a positive way. I have been getting a lesson this year on being clear. That is something I need to work on. And I’ll be honest, I do things that I should release that keep me from being as clear as I could be. I had a reading earlier this year and that’s the main thing I got out of it…get clear and things that you want will start manifesting. So in a way, I am holding my own self back. I know what I need to do, deep down…I do, but my ego keeps getting in the way.

        I really need to start journaling. I think that will help me. I’m always reading, but never really think I need to be writing too. It’s a great way to express yourself. I think that’s what I really admire about you is your ability to share and so eloquently (being raw and vulnerable at the same time – and also showing/sharing your strengths and weaknesses).
        I am learning from you…more than you think. 😉

        Much love & light to you my friend. Blessed Be ❤
