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 19, 14/05/12: Rediscovering Spirit - Bali
Due to the extreme nature of the weather, namely torrential rain, we were unable to snorkel today. Despite part of me being initially gutted; I was actually pleased to have more time just enjoying everyone's company.
I met the girls on the veranda; we shared light conversation and plenty of laughter. It was good to hear them talk of their experience of this journey and although I don't claim to see auras I would definitely say that these people sat in front of me are, without question a different colour to when they arrived... and I'm not talking a tan.
Ken joined and kindly performed the BARS on us individually, whilst the rest of us continued to chat. As he was moving between the various points on my head I could feel myself sinking deeper and deeper. Occasionally I felt myself twitch but today it felt predominantly about achieving a deep state of relaxation; establishing a sound base from which to continue with the process of integration.
I was completely spaced out after my BARS session and when the dinner conversation started to hit the heavy realms again I decided to distance myself. I wanted a quiet night so eventually I just walked away and permitted myself some space; though admittedly I felt guilty about doing so.
