"The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind."
- Caroline Myss.
Over the last week I've been on a soul adventure, trekking down the Great Ocean Road. Along the way I saw some incredible parts of Australia, met some amazing people and took some time to quietly sit, take in the vast beauty of this remarkable world and do a little soul healing.
As I stood on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean and wandered deep within the enchanted rainforest world, nature embraced me with open arms and reminded me that I was home.
Each day the weather shared the many beautiful personalities of the universe. From one of the hottest days so far this summer, to thunderstorms, double rainbows and wild winds, I was reminded to persevere, to dance in the rain and embrace the beautiful moment when a storm passes and the sun shines again.
My home for the week was a little green tent, adorned with floral bunting and filled with the treasures I found throughout my adventures. I embraced early mornings and found myself alone on the beach filling my soul with yoga, tai chi and replenishing ocean swims. In those quiet moments, when there are only seagulls for company, I began to find the answers to the questions that had been filling my mind. I was at peace.
My soul adventures continue on Saturday as I embark on the next part of my journey to Ballina and Byron Bay for a week of yoga, meditation, time with beautiful new friends and with an open heart, embracing the true beauty of the universe. I look forward to sharing more of my adventures soon.
