I’ve been wanting to make it to Tahiti for years (and years) and can honestly say that it matches up to expectations. . . There’s much to say about why I am falling in love with French Polynesia, which I will recap in a post soon — it’s the combination of ancient wisdom and connection to their land (and Tahitian Gods & Goddesses), the dramatic skies & evening sunsets, the fact that raw fish is on every plate, the simplicity & generosity of the culture and like my memories of Fiji left me with — everyone seems to be happy! They don’t look outside for that joy but rather inward, to their souls and to the earth on which they walk. . This shot was taken at the Tiki Village on the island of #Moorea, where we took cooking & basket weaving classes and then happily devoured sashimi, lime, coconut & fresh salad! Foodie & Nature guides coming before the end of the month!

Scrumptiously prepared Parrot Fish, a rarity and delicacy even in #Tahiti! T’was a treat to see this plate of yumminess arrive on our table, cooked by a husband and wife team — the menu is French influenced throughout like most of French Polynesia.

On a road trip from Budapest to Prague through the stunning Hungarian countryside. Then, suddenly we hit the sunflowers 🌻 - . . There were fields and fields of them on both sides of the road, enough sunflower beauty to be awe-inspired for days. When you get up close and just be present with its beauty, it's easy to see how it got its name and the feel the pure magic it exudes. - - Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity, among other things. . . There are spiritual meanings too. In China, people connect sunflowers with longevity, good fortune and vitality and to Native Americans, sunflowers represent harvest and bounty. . . Sunflowers also symbolize faith in some religions because of their resemblance to the sun, which is associated with spiritual knowledge and the desire to seek light and truth. - - The Incas used #sunflowers to symbolize the Sun God, and brought them to temples for worship. The priestesses also wore sunflowers on their garments and as crowns. - - And so, whenever I remember the magic of that road trip and the moment my eyes met these lush fields of natural beauty, I can't help but think of all of the #Goddesses and Priestesses of our past, of ancient traditions, customs and civilizations and of raw natural beauty. - - How they move towards the sun and meet it head on, just as travelers meet the road head on, without fear or hesitation because they know the journey is the reward, not the destination. We can learn so much from #nature!

@robbynaishus1111 putting every second of experience to good use. He'd probably look as good on a barn door, but we suspect it's more fun on the new Global. @naish_kiteboarding @naishkites2018.catalog * FOLLOW 👇👇👇👇@Leon.N.Robledo #kitesurfing #southpacific #bestkiteboarding #kitespot #kitelife #kitesurfer #kitesista #kitesurfers #kiteboardingzone #kiteground

The best kind of love is the kind that awakens the soul ..... and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our mind! Hear hear! Love can move boulders. Repost @lorihaynesmediumhealer

The truth is that when you reach out and call a Tahitian God or Goddess, if they feel your presence and intent, they will come.....to listen & even impart words of wisdom if you so desire. It is in the asking and believing that all things are possible!

Our cooking class at the Tiki Cultural class resulted in this magical creation — fresh raw tuna, coconut & coconut milk, shredded carrots 🥕 with tomatoes 🍅 and cucumbers 🥒 — lets not forget the lime and salt & pepper to taste!

A perfect sky on a perfect night. Barely edited, the skies in #Moorea greet you with grace, purpose & a message every night. . . Imagine being in the water swimming beneath these glorious skies....floating on your back, looking upward & outward to a precious French Polynesian sky. At times like this, we can connect to nature deeply, which is connecting to the universe which is connecting to ourselves! . . Next time you have a quiet moment like this on some foreign soil, float for as long as you can and stare into nothingness. Ask the Ancient Gods & Spirits of old from that very land for guidance and clarity on your life path. Tell them how you want the messages to come to you — you may just be surprised to hear from them and amused at how they do. . #Serenity #Peace #Connectedness #Joy
