Mystical Journey Around Ireland Day 2

It’s my second day in Ireland and I am just over the moon excited to see what I am going to be experiencing. I know coming here is going to be a spiritual and healing experience that was going to be profound, but i wasn’t sure how it was going to look, I was just open to anything coming my way and experiencing my vision: playing in the fields like a little child.

 Our first stop as a group was Newgrange; such a energetic and powerful site. The Megalithic Passage Tomb at Newgrange was built about 3200 BC. The kidney shaped mound covers an area of over one acre and is surrounded by 97 kerbstones, some of which are richly decorated with megalithic art. It was amazing to feel the energy of the land and to feel already so connected.

As we walked into this ancient site you can see carvings, groves from early people that use this temple for spiritual significance. It was really tight walking through the mini maze to make it to the center, but it was beautiful. As we got to the center the tour guide turned off all the lights so you could experience what it felt like to only have the natural light seap in through the entrance. Our group closed our eyes and held hands to really connect with this ancient space; sealed with a vibrational OM as it reverberated off the walls, it was so powerful I had had goose bumps all through my body.

 

Our time at Newgrange was coming to an end and it was time to walk back to the main entrance where our bus was located. It was about a 30 min walk and in the typical adventurist fashion a couple of us got lost and took the wrong turn. We had such a friendly local come to our rescue and drove a car full of women back to the museum, I have to say we made his day. Haha 🙂

While we were lost, and without realizing it, we happen to have our wonderful photographer friend with us, Monique, and we all took turns finding beautiful places to explore and take pictures. 

 

 

 

 

Day 1 Mystical Journey Around Ireland

I seriously can’t believe today is my one year anniversary from being in Ireland. It’s such a magical place, full of adventure, and where you can let you inner child play and run free… Which I did a lot of.

When I first arrived, I landed in Dublin. I was already so excited to experience what Ireland had to offer, I was excited to see all my wonderful friends from San Diego which I miss soooooo freakin much and of course to see my dear friend Amanda Collins that was hosting this retreat in her home land called “Mystical Journey Around Ireland.” I totally recommend this retreat.

First stop was the Guinness Brewery, I am not a big fan of beer but OMG!!! Their beer was so yummy, and me and my gfs Natalie and Olivia had ourselves a good time exploring the place. The Guinness Brewery had this amazing 360 degrees bar at the very top, you could see all of Dublin and probably further out. They had couches and a great seating area right on the windows for you to admire the view and enjoy your amazing beer. It was seriously breathtaking. We also took a class on how to properly pour our beer, so now we were certified pourers, lol!

After we got our fun in for the day, It was time to go meet up with the rest of the group of ladies. Our hotel was so adorable, I still can’t get over how small the elevators are in Europe it’s quite funny to me trying to crush myself and my luggage into it to get to my room. The hotel was very boutique and elegant; one of my favorite parts is that they offered Elderberry tincture which was really yummy. My room was beautiful, it had a beautiful view of the street, but because Ireland is so green it made the view so beautiful with a nice breeze coming into our room at night. 

The food was delicious!! We were a group of 15 people and made our way to a restaurant called the Bloom. Of course they were expecting us so we had no problems.

Day 1 of Ireland was really relaxing but nothing compares to what the next few days that were to come, looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
