It is been 6 years since I came last time in Thailand. I was in Koh PP and Chiang Mai and I remembered that I felt in love with Chiang Mai because of the green but also with their conscious community, temples, monasteries and holy vibes (from my perception).
This time, I came to Koh Phanghan and instead of discovering another trash touristic island, I discovered one of the last paradise with turquoise water, cute little wooden houses on the beach and a large joyful conscious community doing amazing work to help increasing wellbeing on Earth. I feel very centered and connected with everything around me and I let it be.
After my stay in the hospital, I moved to the beach – before I was staying in a house deep in the jungle. Since I am at the beach, I realized that not only me was collecting the trash at the shore but all locals and even foreigners every morning. That’s why everywhere it is so clean. Thai people keep their places, tight, clean and well decorated. Most of the places are cute and well maintained.
As in Bali, they do have small temple in their house where they give offering to their spirits and that’s what amazed me the most in Bali the first time, to see that people was still connected to the higher realm of this reality and was maintaining the connection. Where people loose their dreams, their hopes and imagination – life can be hard and maybe perceived as unfair because they probably see things without the magnetic connection with higher worlds where we can be guided. Here, the veil is less thick than maybe in a hopeless place where people believe in terrific news and constant sadness. So the magic is almost tangible everywhere and synchronicity arises easily in this island.
I learned while here that I do not longer need to fear obstacles because it is a fast track to strengthening my skills. Every hard time I had was always an opportunity to increase my faith. Everything serves a purpose along my path, all I need is to keep faith and trust in the process and believe that every plot twist is just a detour to my destination. We all receive challenges, but according to where you are, it will be low or high intensity, according to what you can support 🙂
There is so much hopes and positive talks at the moment around me, not just here in Thailand but even when I was in Portugal. I see the future as an amazing opportunity for all of us, I never met so many people doing an enormous contribution to maintain balance while creating an ethical and fair economy model to inspire a new paradigm to arise.. to revive!
I can fill one medium plastic bag of trash daily and others around me do it also without having to ask them to do it 🙂
I visited an organic farm where a Thai couple are growing fruits and vegetables, making compost and selling their natural shampoo, body wash and laundry soap to keep the soil safe while we are using our sanitary products. I took body wash and the laundry soap, fruits and veggies, eggs, coconut oil, kombucha… Eating so clean and organic feel so right after me receiving days and days of antibiotics from the hospital through my blood, I feel so weak after the treatment so high nutritive food is my medicine. That’s my opportunity to practice all my Ayurveda knowledge.
Surprisingly, I am practicing QiQong with a Shaolin monk instead of more Yoga courses – and it was one of my dream from my wishes list to train with a Kung Fu master as I never had the opportunity to go to the school in China.
And of course, I love enjoying all the nice restaurants around the island, going to all ecstatic dance or beach party (they do have very good music here from Europe). And singing a lot with fellow guitarist friends at the beach 🙂
Here are some pics of my first month
