Wow! What an uplifting, high vibe afternoon spent @crystalcastlebyronbay in company of truly delightful friends 🎶
Aside from being able to see and touch the most amazing crystals of EPIC proportions (check out my insta stories while they last!) the Crystal Castle took me on a mystical journey along the ‘Buddah Walk’ – a winding path amongst mighty bamboo trees showcasing some of the most powerful Buddahs of all time 💫
These buddahs were the very ones I read about during my studies to become a yoga teacher. Back when I was slowly dying… My bones were brittle, my health was at an all-time low and food had become my enemy. Suffice to say during that time I felt broken, unloveable and unworthy of all that life had to offer.
It wasn’t until I picked up my first book about the brave and mighty Buddahs that I felt truly excited and inspired 💡I realised I didn’t need intense medical intervention or more intrusive tests – I needed to embody Buddah’s dedicated focus and drive to truly learn how to love, support and save myself.
Here I stand at the feet of Avalokiteshvara, believed to be one of the most powerful Buddahs of all time who sees everything and everyone throughout the universe. He exists only to help others, and according to legend he can assume any form to do wonderful things to alleviate suffering 💗
Above all else, this Buddha is the embodiment of great compassion, the very thing that saved my life. It was compassion for myself that kicked started my life-changing transformation into the happy, healthy girl you see every now and then on your insta feed 🙋🏼
And it’s compassion I truly believe must be ramped up to help positively shift the world right now. Wouldn’t it be nice if we all began to be more practice more compassion! For ourselves, but also for others.
How do we do this? By smiling at strangers…sharing kind words with friends and family members…easy, loving things like that.
This week I challenge us all to live with a little more compassion – bet it puts a smile on your dial and more powerful love in your heart. ♥️
Om mani padme hum 🙏🏻✌🏻
