12 Special Moments in 2012

According to the Mayan calendar, an era in humanity’s history ended on December 21, 2012.  After this date, begins a new 5,125-year cycle. This transition marked a shift in human consciousness. Researchers devoted to the study of consciousness and evolution say that a large segment of humanity will not be ready for this evolutionary leap, but those who are will be in a place to help those souls who are still focused on war, conflict and segregation. People who are already making this evolutionary shift will pave the way for others to move towards “unity” and “oneness”.

It is an interesting coincidence that in 2012 we decided to radically change our lives and that this thought crossed our minds in Mexico, close to where the ancient Mayan civilization settled.

We hope that in 2013 we see more natural holistic healing methods preventing diseases, people becoming more spiritual, and resources being channeled to those who need it the most.

We leave you with a summary of 12 special moments in 2012 and with a prayer to achieve true freedom through love in 2013.

A More Spiritual View of Bali

It has been about 5 months since we started our trip. Originally we had planned to visit Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines in these last few weeks of our Asia journey. We will definitely visit these countries one day but we felt that it would be more important to stop for some time to consolidate our knowledge obtained so far and finish our preparation for Africa. We chose to return to Ubud because the food, the energy and the people are great!

We spent the first few days in Bali at the beach. We visited one of Bali’s sea temples in Uluwatu. Although it is a small temple, it sits on top of a fascinating cliff.

It is interesting how we looked at Bali differently this time. We were more curious to learn about local rituals and to visit spiritual places. It seems we became more sensitive to energy than we used to.  For the first time in our lives we chanted a mantra at the beach for almost 2 hours! It is one of our favorite mantras, called Shaanti Path, and it is a mantra for Peace, Harmony and Happiness.

This was the longest Salva’s bear has ever been! Tarci convinced him to trim it a bit now that it is hot.

We send all of you Peace, Harmony and Happiness through this beautiful sunset at Dreamland Beach… May all your dreams come true!

Ubud, the Holistic Healing Center of Bali

Bali is one of the more than 13,000 islands of Indonesia. We decided to spend 10 days in the cultural and holistic healing center of the island, Ubud. The town was originally an important source of medicinal herbs and plants so it was named after the Balinese word ubad, which means medicine.

We arrived during one of the most important religious ceremonies in the country, Galungan. It is said that the spirits of deceased relatives who have died and been cremated return to visit their former homes, and the current inhabitants have a responsibility to be hospitable through prayers and offerings. It was nice to see the decoration and happy people in the streets celebrating. It actually felt a little auspicious because we arrived on the first day and left on the last!
