Near Tulum we floated the canals of the gorgeous Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve. Surrounded by mangroves and orchids, we floated in fresh cold water fueled by the underground cenotes, finally reaching this beautiful pier. We were, seemingly, in the middle of nowhere, yet I felt this overwhelming sense of oneness. In nature there may be no Wi-Fi connection, but I promise you’ll find a better connection.

Five minutes of paddleboard headstand meditation speed up to 15 seconds. This is still my favorite way to meditate! Meditation is like peeling an onion. With every egoic layer peeled you’re a layer closer to your true higher self. Meditation is having a meeting with your soul that your mind isn’t invited to. It’s the single most important skill a person can learn. When was the last time you sat and meditated?

"Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness." ―Eckhart Tolle | This weekend I’m camping the gorgeous Lake Raven. This lake is tucked inside a vast national forest with towering majestic pines―all, seemingly, rooted in Being. I come here seeking stillness and Eckhart was right: Mother Nature is a perfect guru.

"We do not inherit the planet from our ancestors, we borrow it from our childern." ―Native American Saying

I really love how Tulum is so attuned with nature. The hotels are off the grid, meaning the electricity at night is powered by that day’s wind and sunlight. The water is sourced from filtered rainwater and the showers are outside under the stars and moonlight. Even the compost toilets lose the 1st-world stigma of uncleanliness because you’re so aligned with Mother Earth. The energy here is a reminder of your tribal roots and they were right:  we didn’t inherit the planet from our ancestors, we’re borrowing it from our children.

"We are all visitors to this time and place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love… and then we return home." ―Aboriginal proverb

After three weeks of yoga, meditation and mindful living in Tulum, I return home in a higher vibrational and conscious state. Along the way I became best friends with myself as well as met many beautiful life-long friends. I observed, I learned, I grew, I loved, and now I return home. Renewed, aligned and focused, I’m ready to continue my journey towards the light.
