🍕 time in the cutest place with the cutest friend @josypark !

Bonjour Paris , you were missed ❤️.

Lately a theme coming back to me a lot is clarity. One area of my life I felt a sudden urge to make more clear, and simple, is my business. At the beginning we spend so much time trying to make things pretty, or listening to people about how you should do or shouldn’t in your business that we miss sight of the essential parts. And now after one year I asked myself the basic questions again, and the answers evolved quite a lot. Like what we are about and simply what we do and for whom. So this week I took some time to clarify for you ( and for me) my About page and my Work with me page . So If you want to know more about who I am and who I can help, jump on the link in my bio and I hope you’ll get more clarity too! ⠀

Yesterday I have spent the whole day on the beach, looking at this scene and the results were :
☀️
I got sunburned because I overestimated the capacity of my poor skin to stand the strong Balinese Sun
☀️
I realised how much I miss the sea, the smell of salt, the wind on my skin, the noise of the waves, it simply bring me back to the present so well
☀️
I honestly thought I saw the handsome guy from Outlander coming out of the water with a surf board ( who needs TV after all 😂)
☀️
Finally that I need more sea in my life

I will miss this colourful food, and all the rest too!
✨
Feeling a bit melancholic today as the departure back home is closer and I don't know what to expect from the near future both personally and professionally.
✨
I can only Trust and Surrender to it.

Another brand new experience for me! I was sitting on the beach two days ago and I saw a black horse running in the water. It was so alive and gorgeous that I almost had tears in my eyes.
✨
So I had the inspiration to have a horseback riding walk in the rice fields and on the beach and my initial apprehension was quickly gone, I had a blast!
✨
Also funny story, I really like the concept of manifesting beautiful things into your life as I learned from the awesome @viendamaria and this morning I wrote in my journal that I wanted to manifest some nice photos of me. And when I was walking with my Indonesian guide he told me that the beach we went is used early in the morning for magazine shoots and he took some lovely photos of me with the sunset light, so wish manifested 😉

Happy Tuesday! ⠀
⠀
I spent a couple of hours typing away a new blog post all about Ubud traditions, rituals and healers which is one of the aspects that made me fall in love with this city!⠀
⠀
There is so much to say so I'm also preparing two other posts on the food scene and the spas of course :-)⠀
⠀
In the meanwhile I'm taking the afternoon off to the beach and to watch the sunset, even if it's pretty cloudy today :-(⠀
⠀
On other news : after a few months of writing a monthly newsletter I realized I really wanted to reach out more often because I had so many insights to share during the month. So I'm making it a bi-monthly appointment now and the new love letter is already out to mailboxes. Send me a direct message if you want to subscribe but didn't have time yet and I'll send it to you.⠀

Yes please! 🏖🍹☀️

After being in Bali for a week, I'm really beginning to feel this inner shift taking place where everything that happens outside of me is a reflection of things I need to work on inside of me.
✨
Some of this things are very challenging and confronting. One of them is the experience of travelling with a close friend for a longer period of time that brings up my shadow side, how I can be stubborn and direct and not always gentle and soft like I may appear from the outside to a lot of people.
✨
Friendship is a mirror to many blind spots that you cannot easily notice in your everyday interactions.
✨
I looked back at 2 cards from an Oracle Cards deck that I had picked up the first day of my trip and kept on my bedside table since then.
✨
They show clearly CHANGE, which is exciting and enriching but also hard and challenging and something we sometimes want to run from.
✨
So what I'm regularly doing to process these information is using my journal early in the morning and sometimes during the day, stillness and meditation to connect to my feelings and not get too heady, remembering the gorgeous place I am visiting right now.
✨
Sitting with the discomfort, owning it and not rushing to a conclusion is my first step to navigate change.
✨
Working through who we are and who we want to be and the direction we are moving in can be tough and that's why I love to do the work I do because I love supporting women through this process of transformation where I went through myself and I'll still go many more times and I know intimately what it takes to come out with a sense of direction and focus.
✨
If you feel like you're going through similar waters , email me at alessia@followyourinnerlight.com to share your story of change and how I can support you with that.

Proverb from an Indonesian yoga teacher today "If you can smile at your own bitterness you can smile at everything". Wish you all a weekend full of smiling 😉💕

I am afraid, and it's ok.

I am also safe right now.

A few days ago we passed by a major road just outside of Ubud and Anna noticed the picture of a big swing with an open view over the jungle.
It looked amazing and my first thought was "Oh this looks so cool , but pretty scary, I'm not the kind of person that tries on these things" and we moved on.
However the image stayed into my head and I felt a pull to give it a try. I'm quite scared of height and lately my body has been going into fight/flight mode pretty easily, but when I thought of the swing I felt excited, and it gave me a sense of expansion and freedom, so I reserved to do it this morning !

And I had a blast, it was exactly what I needed. There are 3 swings of different heights from 5 to 20 meters, and to my own surprise I did all of them and loved it! 
Before getting on the third one my heart was beating fast and I was afraid, but instead of pushing the feeling aside I embraced. I stayed with the sensation of fear and I acknowledge it by saying in my mind "I am afraid, and it's ok" and every time it made me realize how actually safe I was in that moment and how my mind was playing games.
It felt liberating!

Did you have a similar experience lately ? Of doing something out of your comfort zone and realizing that the fear in our head is often times much greater than reality ?

Yesterday was Full Moon here in Ubud, and while I am not at all an expert in astrology I am having fun using the power of the moon to set intentions and do reflections, and it feels like making magic with nature and the Universe 😊
✨
During the Full moon , so once a month the women in Bali dress up in their nicest sarong and colourful shirts to go to the temple for a special ceremony.
✨
So while me and Anna were walking along the streets we noticed all these women getting off their scooters and elegantly walking up the temple with their offerings with them . So we immediately thought we wanted to participate as well, and we rushed to buy a sarong in a souvenir shop across the street , but sadly we weren't allowed in 😭.
✨
In any case it was another occasion to witness the traditions and rituals of this smiley and peaceful population that it's so incredibly fascinating. I want to know more !
