Pay Your Respect: Bali, the Island of the Gods

I felt called to channel these words for two reasons, one, it is relevant (because it's what I am going through, which means you feel it too), and two, I developed my disposable film in which the portrayal of "ethereal oneness" was embodied in the raw moments I captured.

"Ethereal oneness" being the eternal, delicate, airy energy that surrounds us, "in between the spaces" energy which fills our cosmos. Sometimes we can't see it, other times it unfolds in a form of "coincidence", personal revelation, or simple acts of service. Whether you are present or not, it is present in you. You are connected to the person sitting across the room, the man waiting for the bus half-way around the world, the bird chirping in the Amazon forest, the fish swimming in the Pacific Ocean, the trees breathing outside... we are warm-blooded, breathing beings. We need love and nurturing, juicy colorful plants for nutrition, mineral-rich water for hydration, loving human connection, and most importantly, conscious breathing.

I first came to Bali August of 2016. Looking back at my experience, I distracted myself with the over-indulging night life, drugs, and external pleasures, leading to depression and even more suppression of my feelings. It wasn't until now, three years later, that I stepped out of the illusion I was creating and came heart to heart with my inner child.

Our life is an equal manifestation of light and dark. We are eternal beings, subconsciously striving for a balance in all areas of our existence. It is easy to consume all the bountiful fruits when the sun is shining, although, when we take a step back, we are practically drowning in the sensory overload of the illusion. We are surrounded by lush pleasure, but, we are also surrounded by darkness, which we have been suppressing in our own life.

If we keep running, how will we integrate and understand our heart's desires? Bali will greet you (if she hasn't already), at the golden gateway and it may not be as shimmering as you previously fantasized it to be.
Take a sacred pause and honor what you feel right now.

We are all scared and feel all types of ways, its part of our human experience. You are beginning to wake up. You are becoming more conscious of the world around you. Your inner world is a reflection of your outer world. Do you like what you see? Are you happy with your progress? Are you scared? Do you feel worthy of the projections you created in your life?

You don't need the validation. Your feeling is the validation. Embrace yourself and pleasure in your very own existence.

Perhaps you have had bizarre experiences when your feet touch the land, serendipitous encounters, freak accidents, traumatic releases, search for self, whatever may be your calling, you are here for a reason, and that reason being valid because you are experiencing it. Put yourself first in your healing process, but also, pay your respect to the Island of the Gods.

Everything we receive is a blessing in disguise.

Honor everything that you receive. Make a prayer or short blessing. Take a moment in silence. Be still with the offering. Take a few deep breaths. Thank the universe for its presence in your hands (or for this moment if its not a physical gift). Embrace each layer of it (and of you) with compassion and love.

❤️ ❤️ ❤️

The following images are a collection of what my disposable film captured in the rawness of time. To my surprise, the light decided to take a green dance all over the projections... it is what you make of it.

Gaze, ponder, shift your perspective, turn it upside down, zoom in, zoom out. See your reflection mirrored in the grain. Open your heart to her cry. Offer your heart to her existence.

Sailing ‘Splendour’ in Flores, Indonesia

splendor (noun): magnificent and splendid appearance

"All Aboard, Splendour!"

'Splendour' was her name. On this day, we (two sisters visiting from Spain and a brother; one happy family of four) boarded her rustic dark stained wood. We were greeted by the local Indonesian family of staff, whom were to accompany us for the next few days at sea around Flores in East Indonesia.

At the time, I had no idea of what was going to be of these next days. I try not to make sense of anything and leave it simply up to the flow of the sea. I always expect the least. I imagined being on the boat for a few days, so I had previously packed acrylic paints/watercolors and a book to keep us entertained and to channel creativity for those inspirational moments at sea (I find I am most in flow and creative in nature). There is nothing like fun, loving company, but you know how it is when you just want to retreat and read or paint to the melody of her crashing waves.

Muri and the infinite horizon

Don't let the splendid appearance fool you―The moments when I allowed myself to open up, dare to feel vulnerable, only then, I began to sink deep into her crevices, where mystery unfolds, its dark and unknown. The path which I was conditioned to know is an illusion. My being becomes One with the intuitive curiosity whirling around me, a journey in which I will never want to swim on the surface again.

Floating off the coast of Komodo Island, a crow pays a visit to me as I wake on the top deck after a windy night under the stars. There is always something special about being on the water―an energy I can't describe, I just feel at One.

My cells dance with the ocean's body and orchestrate a flow of timeless energy.

We spent moments under the half beaten sun, snorkeling, hiking, eating, swimming, walking barefoot on the earth, napping in the shade, laughing, meditating... the highlight of my day was getting towed by the little boat and surfing behind it. The sun set behind a nearby island on the eastern horizon.

The moon will rise soon. I had a revelation while watching a school of 'tongkol' fish (like baby tunas) orchestrate this dance near the yellow light of our boats edge ― This dream, reality, what to call it, I cannot say, it's a feeling, stuff exists, a fish dances in harmony with the other fish. How did it get here? It's nature is to dance and feed. It is One. When I observe its harmonious dance with the school of fish, time disappears, there isn't a name to classify their existence. It breathes water, it doesn't see water like we do, nor does it have a consciousness to attach to the knowing (our "ego"), it was simple, it was honest, it was natural, the fish go to the light and they dance all night.

Spiritual Purification in Samothraki, Greece

I woke up and honored the sun rising, beginning the day with a few sun salutations and a short morning flow of stretches and qi-gong that my body thanks me for upon rising. I enjoy to make up a flow as I go. It all depends on my body's feeling, so I listen to her (my body/my temple) and act. Every sun rise is different, so why not embrace the uniqueness in my body each day as well.

The enchanting island is alive and enriched with magic. She is growing with wild bush, cherry trees, fig trees, olive trees, wild herbs and wild flowers filling every space of her naked land. Her heart is in the middle which is guarded by the mountains. The story of Samothrace (aka Samothraki) is said that the island used to be virgin, which was held by the priests and priestesses that inherited the land throughout time. It wasn't until the fire was brought from Mount Athos (male/light) to Samothraki (female/dark), that radiated light from her crystal core, illuminating her mysterious presence from miles across the sea. Population of 2,500 humans and 100,000 goats.

She wore her elements beautifully.

The sun is alive and the birds are singing; it is a beautiful day. Today is "spiritual purification" day, meaning on this day, we allow ourselves to break free from the daily habitual norms and envelop ourselves in all the ways to spiritually purify our mind, body, and soul using the 5 elements: Earth, Fire, Water, Air, and Ether (Love).

This includes fasting and honoring the day in silence. Sometimes our ego/mind makes up a big story about fasting or not talking for a duration of time, the truth is, once you surrender, there are no barriers. Your mind and body is free to bathe in the abundant life spiraling all around at every moment.

legs and feet in nature barefoot

"When I feel in alignment and in flow, it's as if the whole universe is dancing with me. And that dance wasn’t taught or learned, I know the steps because it is imprinted in my cells. My purpose on this earth is to do my dance. My steps are authentic and effortless. There is grace, passion, and laughter integrated in my moves. I can feel the sensations of my body dancing with joy, time doesn’t exist, I am a vortex of abundance and my heart is the music box." Dani

Puerto Escondido: Surfers paradise in the heart of Mexico

A gathering of moments from early morning sunrises to the best oysters on the planet, in Puerto Escondido, State of Oaxaca, Mexico, seen through my eyes, captured on disposable film.

The following excerpts were written on a napkin which I folded up and stuck in my journal:

"Playa Angelito, P.E. Mex⎯⎯Oysterios (Spanish for "oysters") that taste like the ocean filled me up and never left. Fresh, slimy, sandy, oh so salty... for 30 pesos ($1.50), we shared 4 oysters. I can live off this. Ocean food, mermaid food; my body fishes for the salty sensations...

...I floated on the shores edge and watched two little girls play on the shore, one older and one younger, probably ages 7 and 2, like me and Nicole (my
younger sister) when we were young. Squeezing and pulling her (the youngest) in the water. Big cheeks smiling, wobbling and chubby body stumbling away from the waves. "

Sure, there was a language barrier, but when he cracked open an oyster for me to taste, I am positive we spoke the same language.

"...I walk the rocks, the birds remind me of the river birds, the same ones, same songs (reminiscing of the birds that lived at Lake Havasu/ Colorado River, a destination away from home, that my family always went to when we were younger).

Mexican pipeline crashing in the distance; a mango pit on the ground, fisherman boats floating, anchored, fish, oysters, local kids playing and eating juicy pineapple on the beach, palm trees dancing, and Mexican music playing from a speaker echoing in the distance. This is Puerto Escondido."

There was something raw and authentic about these oysters, as if the ocean was pouring into me.

Every hour is a happy hour

Every day, at 6:38 PM (it was the same time for a period of 3 days), I watched the sun set on the western horizon. I've never witnessed such a consistent and transparent, vibrant red ball of fire melt into the horizon the same each evening, as it does in Puerto Escondido. Every day is a fucking ritual. Salute!

Tasting Red: A splash of sensuality, passion, self-expression, and freedom

I sifted through my suitcase for props to play with. One prop being my netted bag, which I use to carry fresh produce when I take my strolls to the local market. We played around our living room, embracing weirdness and using the resources we had.

Here we are, in La Condesa, the heart of Mexico City. Ula and I were on our way to go out for dinner, when we decided last minute to snap a few frames. We were in the mood.

When I came across Ula's self-empowerment-driven photography profile, @tasting_red, I felt a warm, sensual nature. A mood in which one can only create through their own authentic lens of what self-empowerment means in their eyes.

We are all born sensual beings, but I feel many of us get sensuality confused with sexuality. I often notice that sensuality gets labeled in a box with sexuality, along with the many taboos in which it is associated with, especially among women. Understanding this dual nature is vital to human connection. It is our mission to "taste" the pleasures each nature sparks in our being and celebrate the connection.

Sensuality derives from "sense"; it's what our hearts crave to taste as a human being. Sensuality is a mother's warm touch to her baby, a tender hug from a friend, or simply gentle caressing when we are the vulnerable, innocent child that resonates within each of us.

Sexuality is our desire to "taste" when we are driven by instinct. Sexual energy resonates with our sacral chakra, and sacral is a very watery energy. When we want to feel good, we flow there, we taste the physical pleasures our gut whispers to our bodies. This energy is like two animals reproducing.

Apart from the wild animalistic nature we desire to taste in a mate, lies our deeply sensual heart. Remember it?

Hey you, [heart] in there, I feel you, beating every second, every day, feeding my veins with life… my body with unconditional love.

Open to your heart's sense, taste it's warm, red, intimate nature resonating inside of your beingness.

All the rules we were taught as children, of how to "connect" or "touch" one another should be splattered to the ground. Who said you can't cuddle your father as a grown-up, share an intimate connection with a stranger, or taste your own divinity through self-reflected imagery? We are all weird, individual, and authentic characters who should empower one another, not because one fits into a box of acceptance, but because we feed the flame that ignites our own red hot internal compass.

Taste yourself. Taste your fire. Taste your love igniting!

"Tasting red" - a splash of sensuality, passion, self-discovery, freedom… and everything else that swims in the eternal pool of love.

In the visuals below, Ula acts as a vessel as I do my dance.

Taste away….

Hawai’i le belle: Elements of a sunshine girl

danielle le belle photography model in oahu hawaii free spirit girl playing on the beach travel wild fun island lifestyle

I was sitting on my surfboard, floating on the surface where the water meets air.

The in between world—am I floating on the surface or sinking into the abyss?

The glitter on the water sparkles like angels dancing on the oceans surface.

It was happening all around, the sun beaming light so powerful it made the water dance.

Those vibrations danced through my body as I hovered in between the elements.

A wave crashes and pulls out and repeats this process—a life-death-life cycle.

It’s never ending, it’s always moving and always changing.

There is not one vibration that is the same

Just like the moment I found myself present in being.

A moment I can come back to no matter where I am or what I’m doing

The infinite abundance of impermanence.

She dances with the waves

She moves to the rays

She is sunshine girl.

San Miguel de Allende: A town your eyes will never forget

Walking through a kaleidoscope of colors, filled with authentic art, vibrant food, doors to the unknown and a radiant energy filling the streets. As we accompanied many curious travelers, whom were passing through day by day, we felt safe, welcomed, and respected in the beautiful historic town. This is San Miguel de Allende.

Woke up in casa Air B&B. Cosimo took me upstairs to the rooftop terrace, where the sun was beginning to rise over the eastern sky. The sun filled us up on this beautiful clear morning. We park the car and begin our walking adventure! We are led by heart, into markets, shops, art galleries, and museums. The town is exploding with colors every step we take. The more we stumble upon the cobbled back roads, the more we get a taste of the vibrancy. The warm colors paint our hearts, as we soak up the authentic details of the old historical town.

The locals were very respectful to tourism and travelers such as ourselves, many smiles on faces as we wandered the streets. We capture moments, take rest stops for tea, indulge in street sweet treats, rooftop nap on the terrace, more tea time, and play in the colorful artsy shops. The town is a warm rainbow; as if all of my favorite colors threw up on the city and painted its skin with life. We walk on our path knowing that all those colors fill us up. We will continue to spill out our authentic colors every step we take.

Farming 101: How to tune into you

Breathe.

As you look around, what surrounds you?

What is alive?

Chickens scavenging, plants dancing, sunshine singing, the cold earth kissing your toes...

Move slow.

We take time to grow. Perhaps a whole life time and still, we are not done learning. Rather than exerting so much energy in controlling the uncontrolled, plant your seeds right now.

Where are your feet?

Look down. See them there? Grounded and planted.

Mind this moment now. This moment of pure presence.

The seed of creation is tickling your feet.

Dig deep. Get dirty. Uncover and discover.

Palo Santo; also known as "holy wood". Palo santo is native to the indigenous of South America. It is used as a type of smudging to cleanse and purify the energy and space we hold in and around us at every moment.

Just because we can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there. My "medicine" at every moment. When I light palo santo, I find myself rooted in the vortex of presence. Disintegrating all fears and negativity. Her presence opens me up to the place of vulnerability; clearing away the blockages, I can see clearly. Burn away the impurities of your soul so all of your atoms can run wild and free.
