Healing in Bali main image
placeholder for Bali thumbnail image
  • About:Bali has a long tradition of Bali Usada, also known as Balinese traditional healing. The Balinese live equally in two worlds: the seen or conscious world called sekala, and the unseen or psychic world, called niskala. In traditional Balinese healing, both of these elements need to be addressed in order to truly heal.

  • What to expect:The experience will be very public. The healer may make magic, create fire, use mudras, draw patterns on your body & spit wads of chewed herbs on your skin.

Day 18, 13/05/12: Rediscovering Spirit - Bali

Up for breakfast and spoke with Ken about trip possibilities, dates etc. It was nice to put fully out there a combined intention to journey together again in 2013.

I sat by the pool before joining Paula for an iced cappuccino and pedicure. I really enjoy our time together. The trip has not been the smoothest of sailings by all accounts but it's been great to share and voice things when the opportunity has arisen. Plus to my absolute surprise it also turns out we share a few commonalities, which raises a smile and touches me deeply.

I headed back to the upstairs veranda which Bronia and me shared and before long Karen and Taina had joined us. It was great sharing such a relaxed atmosphere. The conversation always seems easy between us all and for that I am so very grateful. Karen and Bronia joined forces to read our Tarot cards.

Once again the cards seemed appropriate to the questions we had each asked. I asked if I was on my rightful soul path and would I be able to support myself.

...So, did the cards answer that question...? In all honesty I can't really remember, all's I do remember is that we shared a lot of enjoyment and plenty of laughter experimenting.

Yoda had arrived to perform our final Melukat. There was a great energy floating in the air; I for one felt more relaxed and energised than I have done in a long time.

Bronia mentioned that to her I felt more like the Emma of old and the Emma she knows me to be than ever before. Hmm I wonder if that's the Emma of this lifetime; now that we've established we have such a long history.

As I sat waiting to receive the waters I felt completely at peace. Yoda commented that my energy levels were rising to a new level and that this would continue to be the case. As the water fell I felt a shooting pain flare up the left side of my back; the area around my kidney. At first it was such a shock that I thought I was going to have to call stop to the proceedings. The more I sat with it however the more the pain seemed to disperse.

After a quick dry off and change we all made our way down to the seafront to share a beer. From there in a secluded alcove we gathered around Yoda, forming a semi-circle in front of him. After a series of growls and shouts he had called in the Naggar energy.

I've witnessed this twice before but for some reason I was a little bit more fearful this time; a feeling masked by my constant desire to laugh. As the energy entered him, he stuck a wad of burning incense into his mouth; on removing it he charged straight for Bronia. Immediately she was thrown off her feet with Yoda eating at her right breast (the area of her mastectomy). It was quite a thing to witness; my friend lying flat out on the floor with a crazed Naggar possessed man eating at her breast. I almost felt like saying, "would you like us to leave?"

As Yoda found his feet he charged at us one by one. This time he didn't just strike once but appeared to keep returning to draw more of the toxins, more of the negative energy out. When he charged for me he spun me around going straight for my back; the area which had caused me such discomfort during the last Melukat. It was surreal that he was able to pick up on it as I certainly didn't give any indication at the time.

It was an intense and crazy evening but an evening I thoroughly enjoyed. I was in a good place; looking forward to a bit of playful, relaxed banter and easy conversation however that was not how the evening was set to unfold.

The conversation felt at times heavy; the topic: judgement. I didn't feel any need or desire to contribute. It was good; healthy I guess for me to try and simply sit back and not become emotionally tied or precious about what was being said. In all honesty I was glad to bid goodnight and head off to enjoy the peace and serenity of my Goddess suite. Sometimes nothing quite hits the spot like a bit of indulgent extravagance.
