What is the Key Obstacle to a Happier Life?

Beloved #Bali Monday Musings: The biggest obstacle to a happier life is our own busy mind.
Once we access that contented, peaceful state that yoga and meditation bring, we no longer struggle in our thoughts.
Then we can actually remember we already have the key to our joy. It’s right here, right now.
.
Or as Danna Faulds puts it so poetically…
“Within us lie the answers to our deepest questions and the antidote for all our fears.
The divine is not an abstraction – it’s as clear and intimate as a heartbeat or a whisper.
.
For me, what Bali helped me rediscover was the quiet within my own mind but in a deeper way than ever before.The culture is based in Gratitude, and the Balinese people are tender hearted, generous and live in the present moment. They are anchored to peace in the now. It is the mirroring neurons at work, or vibrational energy at its best, and it works. It’s why I go back to live year after year.
.
I’m excited for Jenny from Canada who just signed up for our #Bali #yogaretreat April 22-29! She joins an amazing tribe. We have 3 spots left with @hajibasimmusic and me and that’s all. If you’ve tried a lot of other stuff to get back to a calm mind and none of it has worked that well then why not try this. Get “unbusy” and Let Love Lead you to Bali to #growyourhappy forever more. I’d love that. 🙂

Staying at luxury private Villa Tanah Shanti 

It Started from Love

Alchemy Tours, it started from love, it’s been steeped in love for almost 10 years, and the inspiration sparked me to name myself a Love Alchemist.
.
I wanted to inspire people to stop treating this life like a dress rehearsal and never ever forget that even if you are living a good life, you could be living a GREAT life!
.
The takeaway from each lovingly curated #yogaretreat was SELF-LOVE. That is the key lesson. The rest was a relearning of FUN and PLAY in order to remember to remember. 
.
“Learning to love yourself is like learning to walk—essential, life-changing, and the only way to stand tall.” – Vironika Tugaleva
,
I also 108% believe that people are over tired. We need to unlearn being so “busy” and take it easy to be pampered, loved up, made to laugh, and have a time-out to reset. As my hero Anne Lomott says, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”

My Call to You! I have 2 retreats left.

My love intention for @AlchemyTours was to spend time with a total of 50 beautiful humans in 2018.

Bali April 22-29 holding space for 13 guests
Amalfi June 10-17 holding space for 18 guests
Tuscany June 24-30 holding space for 19 guests.
.
That’s it. I want to go on one last Soul Plunge with 50 of my hear tribe past, present and future soul friends.
If you want to step into taking time to do what makes your soul happy this Spring and Summer please reach out to me.

For this is it.

This is not a rehearsal.

I’m Retiring from Leading Yoga Retreats

About my beloved Alchemy Tours:
We are moment seekers. Catching the surf wave. Noticing the sunset. Releasing baby turtles. Watching monkeys. Tasting gourmet delights. Smiling. Laughing. Enjoying each experience that we have, and not taking it for granted.
.
So often we live as if we are in a dress rehearsal for something better coming along. The reality is that this is it. Each day is the ultimate practice of living in the moment. If you feel the need to refresh your spirit, reignite your #passion for living, and rediscover balance in your life, then going on a yoga retreat is what you need. Furthermore, we are 100% committed to helping you reach your full #potential in a friendly, unpretentious, and supportive environment. want to see you move beyond self-limiting belief or old paradigms into the empowerment of creating your best life ever!
.
Each fun-filled yoga adventure combines physical, mindful, and spirit-filled activities that grow your self-confidence and teach you how to live your life more fully. We hold these spiritual adventures in our favorite healing places, sacred places…they also just happen to be some of the most beautiful places on earth! Rest assured we’ve paid attention to every detail to make an #exceptional experience for you.
.
What are you waiting for? In these chaotic times, it is imperative to slow down more than ever so that we can again find our center and realize what is most important to you. A spiritual adventure helps you heal your soul and learn how to make healthy choices for your greater happiness. Each retreat provides loving accommodations, inspirational talks, expert instruction, cultural excursions and healthy, farm to fork, delicious meals.
.
Remember that you don’t need anyone else’s permission but your own to sign up. You will be part of an intimate group of people just like you who are looking for a “time out.” The prerequisites for attending have nothing to do with athletic ability or experience, and everything to do with an open heart, a playful curiosity, an inquisitive mind.
.
Now is the time to de-stress. No one can decide for us what actions to take in our lives. No one knows our hearts the way we do. Register today at and make a trip of a lifetime a dream come true!

I hope you join me on my last yoga retreats I’ll be leading in April Bali or June Amalfi. 

Love your day, love yourself, love your life!

What’s In My Wallet

What I have in my wallet right now?

I was taking time to organize my currencies.

What I saw was only New Zealand and Indonesia had #female faces. Indonesia has 3 different females represented in my few bills.

And as I looked front and back New Zealand and Costa Rica has a human on one side and an animal (eg bird) on the other side.

Indonesia has a Male on one side and female on the other.

USA was man on one side and building on the other. For USA I only had 10, 20, 100 dollar bills so I know there are more.

☮️ What’s in your wallet?

🕉 I learned from being a Human Resources Director with a specialism in recruiting that “like hires like.” We hire people that look and act most like us. We feel good about similiarities.

💜 I’m wondering how many female faces are represented on currencies worldwide? What is it that little girls, and us as women see every day? What people consider valuable is money.  And this in your face message that was has the greatest value to society is represented mostly, and in some countries only by men must affect us.

What you see here: Colones from Costa Rica, Euros, rupiah from Indonesia, New Zealand dollars, Australian dollars, American dollars. 6 currencies.

How do we change something so fundamental?

Can we envision a day where our wallets look like the human race?

If women are half the population shouldn’t our currencies reflect and support that view?

Just an observation.
And no I didn’t try to make this scientific. I simply looked at what I had in my wallet. I didn’t try to dig up the outliers.

I just have to believe #thefutureisfemale and I can’t wait to “see” this mirrored fairly in ordinary every day life.

Awake Dreaming I’ll Meet You There

“You know that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting.”
–J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
.
The blue sky and perfect fluffy white clouds are a beautiful dream in your heart. The colors are so vibrant, whether they are the golden yellow rice ready to harvest or the bright green of the new rice, you feel like it’s all a lucid dream. Maybe you’re awake and maybe you’re still asleep.
This is where you’ll find me waiting in Bali.

The Power of Yoga and Writing by Silvia Mordini on Wanderlust

“Yoga stretches our mind muscle and teaches us how to connect with ourselves and accept the sense things make or make sense of things. Journaling gives us insight into our held patterns of behavior, thoughts, and feelings that may have kept us from experiencing our full potentiality or seeing things clearly. When we can’t make sense of things we restrict ourselves from uniting with our own true nature, joy!”

– Silvia Mordini, Life Inspired Happiness Coach

How I Learned to Quit By Silvia Mordini via Wanderlust Media

6. I realized I am the hero and heroine of my own life story.

-I’m playing the lead role in this masterpiece about my life.
-I quit acting as if I’m the understudy.
-I quit letting myself be disempowered in how I write my own script.
-I practice the mantra: I make my life and no one else makes it for me.

For the rest of my powerful heartfelt new article How I Learned to Quit, a follow-up to Why I’m Quitting (and so should you), click here.
