Since I learn to made this beautiful waving called Ojos De Dios, I’m so in love with it. From 4 sides to 16 sides to a 3 D. The first time I met this beauty was at a wpman circle. The woman that hold the space thought us how to made this beauty. And then let them go and put them on the tree or on the ground around us. It’s the practise to let go.
The Ojo de Dios or God’s eye is a ritual tool, magical object, and cultural symbol evoking the weaving motif for the Huichol and Tepehuan Indians of western Mexico. It’s symbolic of the power of seeing and understanding that which is unknown and unknowable, The Mystery.
Today while I was waiting for my salsa class at Radiantly Alive yoga center, I decided to have some Indian Chai. Was raining in Ubud, so hot chai is the best. Sitting there at Bali Buddha restaurant came a young couple with two girl sitting in front of me. A cute toddler and a little girl, maybe the older one is about 5 years old. Right next to me is a kids corner where there are some pillows, puzzles, blocks, coloring sheet and come coloring pencils. The little girl was standing there and just staring at the table where the sheet and the pencils were. Suddenly we have a soul communication. Our eyes was met and I feels like I was talking to her without even saying anything. We were smiling at each other and then I gave her a sign with my head for her to looked at the sheet. And then another sign with my hand for her to color the sheet. As you guess she start coloring. But not long … seems like she was bored. While her toddler sister continued her coloring, she decided to sit next to her mom. But I can felt that she was a little bit uncomfortable at that time. Suddenly I remembered that I brought some God’s Eye (Ojos De Dios) key chain that I made with me.
I grabbed the pink one and I walked to her table. I asked to her father if I can give her something. Then I handed offer the key chain to her. Her face was so priceless. She gave me a sweet smile and I can see that she was excited for that. When I was sit back on my table she came to me and said thank you. She said that she will put it on her room. The best feeling ever to see someone smile and change their mood just because a small act of kindness.
A few weeks ago I joined an Intuitive Mandala Workshop with Holly Blake. We work with papers, coloring pencils and crayons, making shapes and colors, and make a collage mandala. I only made a quarter part instead of the full circle. Later on Holly collect our mandalas and put it together into a complete circle. Then Holly not just send the complete mandala to each of us, she also made an intuitive reading on our mandalas. It was a fun and interesting workshop. I play around with the shapes and color, just like a child … I never did a collage mandala before so this one is not easy for me but I love it.
I moved back to Bali 2009, and not long I got a job as a therapist for special needs children. I work there for 2 years until My husband came and he got a great job in Bali so he decided to stay with us. Not long from that moment my pain and other symptom was getting worst. My joints were swollen and hurts so bad, My eyes can’t see clearly, My hair were falling … and … the doctor even the specialist can’t find something wrong with me. I am healthy … but pain all over my body. And then I decided to quit from my job and stay at home.
To fill my time I helped my Aunt with her learning house. I teach English, dance and handcrafts … they are so adorable. There were some volunteers who help us also, and some from other country. I was enjoying my time at the learning house when my husband died … after that I was a bit lost. Then I tried to fill my emptiness to do any kind of activities that I like. I join social community in my town. I do many kind of things there. Help people, even organizing, have fun … I use most of my time to serve people. Until there was a volunteer from Holand that stay with the learning house for about 3 months. The change was start … Continue reading Growth part 3→
