The challenges of life can be vast, life is a balancing act, balancing work and life, needs and desires. I have been on a spiritual path for a number of years now. My balancing act is to give enough time and support to my family, work and my spiritual development.
I find that giving personal time to activities that feed the spirit is fundamental in keeping the ‘spark’ alive in oneself and keeping one’s mind healthy.
The time had come to travel, to explore a country that could give me that sense of spiritual guidance, I was lucky enough to have planned a recent family trip to Singapore and then onto Bali.
My trip took on an amazing twist, when in Bali, I was very pleased to have met up with Ketut, the famous medicine man who stared in the film Eat Pray Love.
Aged 98,I felt I was very privileged to have met such a great man, his house, which also resembles a temple, was being prepared for the Perayaan Budha Wage Kelawu which is a Buddhist celebration held in early November.
During the visit, I took the opportunity of having some spiritual guidance. He read my palm and also further reaffirmed a number of aspects that were present in my life and my future challenges.
I felt very comfortable in his presence and in his Temple, the calling for me to meet with such a great man came true, and I firmly believe events happen for a reason. I felt an exchange of healing happening for the both of us at a spiritual level.
For me, the experience gave me some direction, his blessing at the end was to help me accept a new level of energy to enable me to move with the flow of events that are to come.
He continued to give guidance to the whole of my family, this was a real blessing, and of course, not forgetting to give recognition to Gusti Ngurah Juniasmara, who also helped make this possible, as he guided us to this great man.
