Where my spiritual journey started…
Here is a small insight to the unknown hippie town in Mexico on the Pacific coast. If you’re into surfing, drinking plenty of cocktails, a spiritual vibe, meditation, yoga and relaxation here is the perfect place for you!
I first came here in April, after my god mother who lives in Canada invited us to come as she has been visiting Mexico for 23 years straight. I am so fortunate to have someone like her in my life who gave me the opportunity to visit such a beautiful and significant area in the world. I have never been to a place like it everyone is so happy, the positive energy bounces of everyone in the little town like no place else. As it was my first time, I was not fully open to the whole spiritual vibe, however it did open my eyes to see a different side of life and the contrast of the pace of life from England to Sayulita.
Everything is so laid back, there is no rush it’s a quirky blend of the untouched hidden tropical area with a Mexican surf culture creates a wonderful atmosphere. I surfed a little whilst i was there, which made my experience even better as I love love love surfing, especially in Mexico! So anyway as I was only there for 10 days, I got home and had the worst holiday blues you could ever imagine. I was destined to come back, using my stubbornness and persistence( Tauran star sign traits) I managed to persuade my godmum and my mum to go back this August just been.
The second time I came back, it felt like I should be living there, I knew the town well, which made it feel as if it was my second home, although it was only my second vaction there. This time, I really got the feel of the positive energy and the spiritual vibe that was being sent around, and to me this makes Sayulita a very special place. I was also reading a book called ‘The universe has your back’ by Gabrielle Bernstein. This was the perfect book to be reading whilst in this spiritual place, as it was all about creating positive energy and your inner self and peace. In addition to the relaxing side of this, I did around 12 hours of surfing towards the end of my trip in Sayulita, this also lifted my spirit and made me so positive, you have to love the water and the waves to feel connected with it which i was. Doing somethign which you enjoy yet you also know is good for you is an amazing feeling and makes you feel spiritually good.
My message to you guys is to try be positive all the time!
