Simply put our trip was a gift from the Universe.
Bri and I blocked off two weeks at the beginning of August for an adventure to celebrate the end of Bri's bar exam and new beginnings. Options were a surf road trip to Mexico or up the California coast.
With the time soon approaching, Hawaii manifested swiftly and easily like a wave. Time - two weeks. Plane tickets - booked. Exact location? Well...
About one year ago my Auntie Sue in Hawaii showed my Uncle Lani who is a big surfer a picture of my broken board. After that he sent me the BEST new one and we had future plans to do a surf trip. Why not combine our intentions to surf/play music?! So it all came together - Honolulu bound.
We were warmly welcomed to beautiful seas, warm winds, majestic cliff sides, band practices, and family. We had the best time surfing with Uncle Lani and friends, exploring gorgeous beaches, climbing magnificent mountains, sweetly listening to and practicing with Infinite Horizons Hawaii band, merrily shopping, walking, and stargazing with Auntie Sue, visiting Auntie Fumie and Auntie Fran, learning lots about Polynesian culture with Bruce, being serenaded at Hawaiian bar Tikis, singing and delighting in delicious baos with Cousin Grant, absorbing wisdom from Uncle L, rescuing sweet conure Gracie, canoeing with Legend Nappy, enjoying the Lionsgate Portal, receiving new crystals/stones/rocks and metaphysical books, eating flavorful and juicy foods, integrating new energy upgrades, and imbibing the beautiful vibration of Earth from such a special place.
One day as we looked upon Chinaman's Hat from shore, a random person swam up and out of the water exclaiming twice, "Thank God you're here! Thank God you're here!" with a big smile.
Upon further meditation, it struck me: "Thank God very much that we were there and for this beautiful trip." I then felt weightless, floating on clouds of the universe, a buoy in constant uplift.
Bri and I are extremely grateful for this wonderful, life-changing, transformational trip. Transformation starts not with a massive earthquake but rather a micro-shift in the direction of one's life compass. We soaked up wisdom of gold and planted more seeds in the garden of freedom, joy and vibrancy!
