From Greece to NZ and back during a Global Pandemic
From Greece to New Zealand and back during a global pandemic
Why did I go to New Zealand in the first place?
I looked back at my journal before I left Greece.
For almost two years, my spirit felt restless.
Externally, in the eyes of the world, I ‘had it made.’ I was renting a lovely apartment close to the sea in the south of Athens, and I had friends in Marathonas, who rented their apartment to me inexpensively during the summer months.
Greece had endowed me with an abundance of good friends, delicious foods, a sunny, warm climate, and very kind-hearted people all around.
It was here that I had the privilege of awakening to channelling. The Pleiadians first came through in my apartment in Athens. Creatively, the painting and music were blossoming, and my work and business growing. What more could one want you might ask?
I kept asking myself that very same thing. Time and again, I got a similar answer.
‘Bracha, you need to make a huge shift. You are in a rut.’
This was the last thing I wanted to hear. It had taken me several years to build up the kind of social connections and loving friends I’d always dreamed of and to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
Long before Covid, the murmurs of my soul were calling to me. ‘Bracha, it’s time to move. Pack your bags. Get ready for an adventure. It’s not too late. You’re just beginning…’ These were the kinds of messages that repeatedly came in.
The big question was, where to move and when?
Then along came Covid. As soon as Greece went into its first lockdown, I knew I had to move to New Zealand. It was clear. The question was, did I have the courage to move through all my fears?
Flying during a pandemic scared me greatly, especially being in my sixties and, supposedly, in a ‘more vulnerable sector of the population.’ The thought of the very long flights was daunting, and I had nightmares about it for several weeks. On top of that, a strict managed isolation for fourteen days upon arrival was equally terrifying.
As I am on a very restricted diet, arriving in an unknown place and hotel, without knowing the food I would be given, was impossible to contemplate.
It took almost two months to persuade the NZ government to allow me to stay in a managed facility with my own kitchen. As soon as I received that approval, I knew it was time to make my move.
Booking a flight was relatively easy as so few people were travelling at the time. Airlines had all kinds of special offers, and I was able to get a great deal.
Nonetheless, the fears plagued me right up until the very last minute. With just 90 minutes before my first leg of the journey to Dubai, I was still dithering.
My dear friend Eirini was driving me to the airport when I said to her:
‘I’m not sure if I should go…’
She responded, ‘no problem at all. I will drive you wherever you like. Take your time and breathe.’
I did just that. Within a few minutes I realised that I needed to take the leap.
We hugged, and off I went.
The trip to the southern hemisphere was much easier than I had anticipated. Everyone was friendly and attentive. Because I was so emotional, much to the coaxing of the flight attendants with various tasty morsels, I couldn’t eat a thing. It was probably good that I fasted for three days en-route, because I had virtually no jet lag once I arrived.
The plane arrived in Auckland and within no time, I was whisked away in a minivan straight to an isolation hotel. After showing my passport to reception, someone pointed to the lift and instructed me to go alone up to my room. I was told I had to remain there for at least the first five days until I had my first negative Covid test result.
The room was dark, the windows very dirty and although I felt quite scared, tiredness overwhelmed my monkey mind and numbed my emotions. Someone dropped my cases outside my door, and I had to drag them inside myself as no one was allowed into the room. I was treated as though I already had Covid, and I had to abide very strict guidelines. Nurses came daily to take my temperature and ask me a long list of health questions.
Food was delivered daily to my room, and I was fortunate to be able to cook it for myself.
After day five, and thankfully a negative Covid result, I was allowed to book on a walk. What joy! The thought of getting outside for forty-five minutes was overwhelming after being in a ‘prison’ for the first 5 days.
Unfortunately, it was not to be. On that first ‘free’ day, Auckland council decided to stop the walks until further notice. I was dreadfully upset. The next day, however, they were reinstated and I was permitted to go on a walk.
A huge bus arrived, we had to board one by one, supervised by an army cadet, sanitise our hands and sit several seats away from one another. All wearing masks, we were scrutinised intensely by army personnel as we walked up and down a small area near the docks. I was so grateful for this ‘outside time’ and it soon became the highlight of my time in quarantine.
You couldn’t book another walk for the next day. Instead, you had to wait until the day after. Never before had I lived in such a restricted environment. And yet, even with all the challenges, every single person was kind and helpful. This is my lasting memory of those two very long weeks in quarantine.
Once out of ‘prison,’ I had to find a new home for myself. I still didn’t know exactly why I’d come, but I felt relieved to have faced and survived the fears of the journey and the isolation.
Every day I had to find reserves of courage I never knew I had. I stayed in a hotel for a couple of weeks as I began to find my feet. Many people generously reached out from all over New Zealand offering me a place to stay.
I had some very dear friends who lived in Christchurch who repeatedly invited me down. However, after living through the earthquake in Christchurch in 2011, my heart really didn’t want to revisit.
One invitation, however, piqued my interest, but I didn’t do anything about it straight away. When another email came from the same people, I decided to call them and see if we could chat firstly and meet on WhatsApp. It was a young couple with a beautiful doggie.
We hit it off instantly, and within a couple of hours we had agreed to meet that weekend when they could bring me to their place and show me where I could stay.
It was a joyful and inspiring time together and we agreed that I would come and stay with them for a week or two and see how things went.
It ‘felt’ right, and they came all the way into central Auckland to pick me and my cases up and take me to Whangaparaoa.
The place was beautiful, I had a bedroom, an office, and a bathroom. We shared the rest of the house, including the kitchen.
Keep in mind that I had been living happily alone for over 25 years and had not shared a kitchen in a very long time. They were very welcoming and said we’d find a way to make it work.
I had my reservations, which I didn’t listen to, but instead, decided that as I’d been ‘stuck in that rut’ for over two years perhaps it was time to stretch into some new experiences.
They were loving, caring and helpful, but inside, I still felt restless and wanted to find a place of my own.
First, I drove up to Kerikeri, about 4 hours north. I had lived there prior to leaving NZ and it’s a glorious part of the country. Warm climate, not over-populated with its own little airport.
I booked in a little B and B and explored the town. Although I visited all the estate agents, there was very little on the market for rent. I did find something that I thought would work, but I was rejected after applying. I did not get a big yes to stay there. I kept looking for several weeks after, but nothing came up.
Another place I considered was Tauranga. I made 3-4 hour driving trip from Auckland to investigate the area. Within a few hours of exploring, I didn’t get the feeling that this was the place of me. I checked out some of the outlying areas, but nothing there excited me.
In the end, as nothing was working out in other areas, I decided to stay with the young couple for a little while longer. We ended up finding a big house that we were excited to share together. It had its own basement floor with a separate entrance, seemingly perfect for all our needs.
However, from the outset, everything ‘went wrong.’ The energies of the house were heavy, the carpets smelled of cat pee, and from day one, I struggled to make it a home. For several weeks, I tried everything. Nothing seemed to work.
One evening, we had a talk, and I could tell they were relieved when I said I needed to move out and find my own place.
From that point onwards, everything began to fall apart. I searched daily for accommodation. I moved from AirBnb to AirBnb. Whenever I requested to stay somewhere for another week, the answer was always no.
Within the space of a few weeks, I had moved seven times!
It was distressing, exhausting, and demoralising.
Added to that, I had a sad falling out with the young couple as I made my exit. This was very unusual for me as I prided myself on keeping amicable connections with almost everyone from my past.
With each move, my energy depleted further, and I knew deep inside that it wasn’t going to work out for me in NZ.
It was a very difficult admission to make after everything that had gone into the preparation, the quarantine, the move to the other side of the planet, but I was growing weaker all the time and I needed to make a clear decision.
An angel reached out to me and was available whenever I needed to talk in those last crucial couple of weeks. She encouraged me to make the move.
The trip back to Greece was much more difficult than the outgoing one to NZ. My health was delicate, my energy very low, and Covid rules were even stricter. I had to have several Covid tests, and everything was more emotional and stressful.
In my heart, however, I had no doubt that the move back to Greece was the ‘right’ one and I was finally coming home.
It took several months to get my strength back, and it is only now, almost six months after returning to Greece that I have been able to complete the story and share some insights with you.
NZ was an ending of an old Bracha.
Fortunately, I hadn’t burned all my bridges with Greece. I could still in the apartment in Marathonas with my friends. I nearly lost the apartment by the sea in Athens, and it was at the eleventh hour, when my landlord had already taken a deposit from a future tenant, I rang him and asked him to keep it for me, which, after a nail-biting 24 hours, thankfully, he did.
Anastasia, my dearest friend, while I was in NZ, had emptied out the Athens apartment, packed all my stuff and moved it to her family’s storage place. A few weeks ago, when we met up and unpacked everything and put it all back again.
‘This will be something we will laugh at in our old age!’
What were the great burning learnings that came from my time in NZ that might be valuable for you too?
- My fears are surmountable: The journey, the quarantine, the ten moves of home in less than six months, the ending of a close relationship. Having walked through the fire, I survived and came through renewed and stronger than before.
This quote from Winnie the Pooh summarises it perfectly:
‘You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and stronger and smarter than you think.’
- Trust your inner voice. When in a vulnerable position, it can be tempting to take the ‘easy way out.’ To stay where you are out of comfort or fear of making a mistake or a big change. It could be in a marriage, a relationship, where you live, your work, your health.
Right from the outset, knew it wouldn’t be ‘right’ for me to live with other people I had just met, yet I went against that internal knowing. This had extremely painful consequences for all concerned.
Are you trusting your inner voice in all life areas?
“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.” – Johan Wolfgang Von Goethe
The intense and painful times in NZ strengthened me internally. Although in Greece I had the external comforts, I still needed to stretch and grow more on the inside. Now, I consciously live life from the inside out and it feels so much more authentic and in alignment with my true nature.
- Don’t rush headlong into new relationships, no matter how ‘wonderful’ someone may seem. Take time to experience the person in different situations and on ‘good’ and ‘less than good’ days. Do they discuss issues, or do they avoid them? Are they willing to stay through the rough times as well as the smooth ones? How do they react during a time of crisis and pressure? If something doesn’t feel quite right at the outset, trust that message.
- Don’t speak out when you are emotionally distressed. The falling out with the young couple came at a time when I was extremely stressed. The burning learning is: NEVER to utter a word to someone feeling out of balance, off centre and deeply upset.
If I have learned just this one lesson, the trip to NZ will have been worthwhile.
If someone is pushing you to respond when you are upset or angry, and you don’t want to talk, either remove yourself physically or shut your mouth and don’t speak until you have had time to calm down. Words said from a place of heightened emotion can be misconstrued and very painful for the recipient.
- Honour your own needs and respect your boundaries. If you know you must have plenty of time alone and you need your own space, don’t relinquish it, especially if the relationship is a relatively new one. Sometimes things may have to explode in your face if you’re not getting the message that your higher self is trying to communicate to you. I’ve learned to tell the truth about a situation when I know in my heart it’s not working.
- Know when to move on.
Once I was dealing with cat pee, stinky carpets and drains, I should have moved out immediately. Instead, I tried to make compromises and excuses.
I dragged out the agony instead of knowing when to let go and move on. Face your fears and don’t run from them.
‘Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.’
- Even during the hardest of times, there is always help, there is always a light. I learned to trust and to be willing to reach out and ask.
Despite the challenges, I met some beautiful people with whom I have strong and enduring bonds of affection. I met a wonderful healer who has imparted much of his wisdom which has added a great deal to the depth of my work.
Now that I am back in Greece, I appreciate everything on a much deeper level.
I calmer inside having faced so many fears.
I appreciate having a home more than ever before.
My determination to learn Greek has intensified and I am taking regular lessons.
If you are stuck in your life, or hearing similar messages about another life area, listen. You’ll be so glad you plucked up the courage to make a move, to speak out, to change career, to walk your spiritual path.
As our world continues to go through immense shifts and changes, we are all going through huge adjustments and learn ing how to step through our fears.
Can you trust? Will you take the leap? Will you face your biggest fears? Will you honour your essence?
My heart is with you and cheering you on!
Dear Bracha, I found this post you shared about your journey over the last year extremely helpful and inspiring as I feel the incessant soul urgings to shift gears and wrestle with the decision to take the leap from what is “comfortable,” but no longer fulfills at some deep soul level Thank you.
Thank you very much dear Mary, xxx
Isn’t it ironic, sometimes we need to leave a place of comfort to experience an understanding of what we had was good. At the time, I was excited as I thought that maybe you would visit Australia but that wasn’t to be. I’m glad you’ve found your mojo back and living in a place that brings you great joy!
You are absolutely right dear Maria!! Much love, Bracha xxx
Dearest Bracha, at last, I understand.
While you were in NZ, I consistently envisioned an outcome for you that would be rewarding.
SINCERELY happy for you in this renewed, change of environment.
What a blessing to be able to follow your inner voice
Thank you for sharing
Sending much aroha to you beautiful Bracha. Ngā mihi nui, Daniel and whānau
Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and insights with us. I’ve been following you every step of the way and have watched your story unfold on You Tube with such awe! Your story reminds me of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, in that you had to go outside of your comfort zone and sphere of familiarity to experience challenges, which led you to what you needed to learn and teach. You discovered the power of friendship, love, bravery, and wisdom all along the way. I was so relieved when I heard that you’d returned to your happy place! I hope the restlessness has subsided now.
Oh Bracha, this is so beautifully written. How brave you are 🙂 Most people never have the courage to move forward and experience strange places. It is so very difficult to recognize intuition versus the voices in our head from past or present experiences that may be playing tricks. I truly admire you and wish you many more happy, blessed adventures.
Thank you so much dear Rozanne! I admire your courage too, sending you much love always, Bracha
Wow! Bracha this is quite a saga. My thanks for your sharing. I applaud your spirit and your vigor. What lessons! Isn’t it interesting that no matter the age we seem to always be in a learning cycle. Perhaps that’s the way we grow, improve and prosper in living. I’ve written to you a few times. I’m the 81 year old! I give my age only because I am still alive with curiosity and fun. And with lots of travel experiences on my own. I didn’t retire until I was 78 and had work in London, so went to and fro for 30 years from Colorado. Best of both worlds I always said. Guess I’m writing to encourage others to not think about age, but to think about living, no matter the age. Do whatever you want whenever you want as long as your are true to yourself and to others. Do nothing mean or harmful to others (certainly not intentionally). Life’s lessons can be magnificent, tho not always easy. My best to you Bracha. I love your work, your honestly and your adventure in living.
Thank you very much dear Carolyn for your inspiring example! You are absolutely right – age is not a barrier!
Much love to you, Bracha
Barbara, how brave you are. I thoroughly enjoyed all the highs and lows. whilst reading this journal.
At 59, I know how daunting these adventures can be. It’s easy to go off travelling when one is young but to do the same In the second half of life.., much respect to you.
Hi Amanda, I am learning that age is really just a number – my 99 year old Auntie reminds me of that all the time!~
Love to you, Bracha xxx
Wonderful Bracha, your strength is so inspiring.
Bracha thank you a thousand times for sharing your story. I was soo wondering about your journey. My thought was, “she’s back in NZ???, WHY? That’s a LONG journey. WHY?”
Now I know. It was for you to learn more about the strength you have inside of you. And many lessons about your
ability to handle more than you ever thought you could.
Congratulations and welcome to the knowing that your ARE A STRONG WOMAN!! With tons of love and kindness.
Thank you so much dear Patricia for your very kind words. I am always quaking in my boots just beforehand!!
Much love to you, Bracha xxx
Thank you for sharing your truth and your heart in all its vulnerability. It inspires me to follow my path wherever it leads. At age 75 I feel the real adventure is just beginning. And I feel you are a true friend to all who read your words and hear your voice.. Blessings on us all.
Thank you very much dear Gail. I love that you feel your life is just beginning!! You inspire me. Much love and blessings to you xxx
Wow Bracha I Salute your Courageousness, Your story is one of great InSpiritation ~ Yes these lessons in life can be tough, yet I’ve come to ‘Gnow that when given these opportunities for growth and new inner-standings we are only given what we are capable of and ready for (even when we feel that we are far from strong enough) You rose to the challenge and found the diamonds within! I Love that you have shared the Gifts of your experience with such authenticity and humility ~ A valuable lesson for all of us, that in taking a leap of faith, no matter how uncomfortable at the time, provides the furtile ground that we need to fast track our growth ~ So Lovely that Greece has welcomed you back home to her Heart with open arms and all has aligned with such BeautiFull Synchronicity ~ Keep shining that Wondrous Diamond Heart of yours Bracha, it’s Light beams are far reaching and much appreciated ~ Love and Brightest Blessings to You and the Teddies xXx
Thank you so much dear Pamela for your very kind and generous words. I am indeed extremely grateful to be back in Greece.
Love to you, Bracha xxx and Teddies xxx
Thank you for being so open and for sharing with us the valuable lessons you have learned, Bracha. I love you and I’m grateful to be part of the Soul Family. 💕
Thank you very much dear Stoyan, I am grateful you are here. Love Bracha
Bracha, reading your story was entertaining, emotional and educational. When I talked with you during our session in Feb. 2020, I was planning to move country. You were not, although you had mentioned in a video that Librans like you and me might be moving country. As is turned out, you moved first and found what you needed to learn from your journey. I had been planning to move to a specific country permanently, but extensive research showed me that wasn’t the right fit. Instead, I decided to spend the first year split between 3 different countries. I’m in the final month of the first (Georgia), and it isn’t a place I’d want to settle in long-term. This was the most distant of the 3 from my home country of the US. I’ll be in Mexico for the winter, and then plan to visit Ecuador after that. I had a session just yesterday with an astrologer since you were unfortunately booked for this year. She provided hope for me for the coming year, and even mentioned a couple of other countries that looked like a good astrocartographical (if that is a word) fit. Unlike you, I am almost certain my journey will not lead me back to where I started since I didn’t leave anything I truly miss behind. However, I hope to be able to learn a lot more about myself while in search of my happy place, just as you were able to do. Thank you for sharing your uncomfortable learning experience.
Hello dear Lucky, lovely to hear from you again!! I wish you safe and easy travels in the coming years, and hope you will soon
find your happy place.
WIth love, Bracha xxx
Thanks for sharing Bracha, lots to ponder in my own life now having read this. One question, why was New Zealand your chosen destination?
Hi Jayne, because I had some unfinished business there that needed to be completed. xx
Beloved Bracha…you rock! 🙆♀️
Thank you for sharing the amazing insights you received regarding your NZ adventure! They are wonderful insights that we may all embrace in our own lives!
My life changed wonderfully after I had my astrological session with you about 1 1/2 years ago. I gained such confidence from the directions you suggested for me, and I am soooo happy now!
I have my own channeling website now, and I have just begun creating jewelry…which allows me to “create” with my hands!
The balance of my spiritual channeling of helpful messages and creating something beautiful for another, is perfect for me, at this moment!
Additionally, since I have been feeling so fulfilled, I have finally been able to address my health…and that is better too, now.
Sorry for the long story, but I have long wanted to “thank you” with much Gratitude and Love, for the great inspiration you were for me, and obviously many others, too!
Love to you always, dearest Bracha! 💜 Jan/Losha
Hi Jan/Losha, I remember you well! Congratulations on all the progress you have made!! You inspire me!
Much love to you, Bracha xxx
Hope in time to reapologize to the couple and your cherish of the time and support from them. Asking forgiveness again.
Hi Maria, I asked several times and I think it is all fine now. Much love, Bracha
Such bravery and courage Bracha to step out of your comfort zone and follow your dream. And then what strength and determination to ‘keep on keeping on’ when things began to fall apart. I admire your tenacity and perseverance and the blessings you share with all of us by allowing your vulnerability to be seen. Your insight and wisdom will help so many people which is awe-inspiring. I am so pleased for you that are now ‘home’. Blessings and thanks to you Bracha.
Hi Claire, to be honest, I was quaking in my boots 🙂 I am grateful for your kind comments and generous words. Sending you love, Bracha
What a journey you have had Bracha. I went through a very similar journey with the intense changes, fears, not trusting myself, health, moving to and from many homes, still not got anywhere stable yet. All the way thru living with the fears of change and having to walk thru the doors.
One thing I know it has made me stronger, trusting my inner voice and staying out of all the outward dramas.learning to create my new life.
Living a spiritual life has many challenges, yet my Soul wouldnt have it any other way. This is the lifetime it choose to clear all of its karma.
I wish you a peaceful, smooth transition into the New Earth.
I love your work Bracha, I have been following you for years.
We are brave Souls.
Hi Deb, thank you very much for your kind words and wishes. I am sending you love from Greece, Bracha xxx
Thank you for sharing the story of moving to NZ and then back to Greece. How nerve wracking! I remember when this was happening and you couldn’t find a place. ’m glad things have worked out and you are safely settled again where you feel at home. Take care, big hugs and I so enjoy your videos and the Paleidians.
Thank you very much dear Asha! I was very fortunate!! Love, Bracha xxx
Wow! I had no idea you had the courage, to against all odds, endure the hard and cruel circumstances of travelling through this time. What a strong and determined woman you truly are.
I’m so happy you’re back in Greece, the country of my birth, but God brought me to Melbourne Australia to live my life when I was only 17 months old. I wonder if I’ll ever get back to Greece ever again with all that’s happening?
After being so grateful to live in such a beautiful and safe part of the world for the majority of my life, to living in fear, doubt and insecurity about our freedoms and livelihoods now shadow our everyday experience. Living under such a draconian dictatorship and so aggressively and quickly is so scary, but your story gives me hope, that this too shall pass. I have to trust that God has a plan, I begin to question what is that plan? What will I need to do to live out my real dharma? I will have to feel the fear and do it anyway! Questioning what God is bringing for me to do next and if it’s ok to go down that path?
When you know inside that something is calling you, but something keeps blocking you, is it my fears, or is it spirit blocking me because it will be a difficult path, or not the right path? However, no matter who I touch, they all reach out and tell me that I need to be the voice to help bridge their answers and bring comfort and hope. So many questions and always praying everyday for guidance. Do I also go against the grain and come out of the spiritual closet on a public platform, or do I simply keep it within the ones I touch on a personal level?
Only the other night I learned to stay quiet about my opinion with a very dear friend who is of the opposing beliefs about these injections that I hold, has helped me realise how far I’ve come. Usually willing to give advice and share my thoughts, I felt it better to listen and allow her to work through her stuff and not be responsible for her choices and get caught in the web of life. Thus being able to stay connected as friends and agree to not bring up our beliefs was tough not to become emotional. Your words about not speaking if you’re upset and emotional confirmed to me that I did the right thing. Another part if your story of not burning bridges also confirmed my responses to her were of God and I’m so happy my inner guidance is stronger now than ever. Trusting that God will bring to me the right people that will also help me get through these turbulent times even if they are not able to be physically close to me at this present time.
I need to trust and believe I will always be protected and looked after. Thank you for sharing your story and sending my love Bracha ❤️❤️🦋🦋💖💖
Hi Ele, congratulations on trusting your inner voice and listening to it!! I am sending you much love from Greece,
Bracha this is a touching story, I really felt your journey was a huge one for you. I hope that the beautiful vistas and airs of Greece welcome you back and have you feeling happy and expansive.
Hi Lara, thank you so much. I am deeply grateful to be back in Greece! love, Bracha xxx
How amazing is the universe that I should find your account of your travels and associated challenges at just the right time.
I am in my mid 60’s and my own voice channeling is opening up and becoming a more important focus. I live in Australia and have a daughter and grandsons in NZ. My heart is always heavy now that I cannot visit them regularly like before. I had previously dreamed about living there part time, as I always feel very at home in NZ.
Reading about your experiences has helped me on so many levels, and I am very grateful for yet another reminder to be true to myself and my inner guidance.
Much love and thanks to you for who you are and all that you do. Xx
Hi Carol, I am so glad it helped you personally. Trust your inner guidance!! Age doesn’t matter at all – it’s just a number,
Much love, Bracha xxx
Perhaps the brush of ones garment against another creates what we may call the butterfly affect. Those who’s path you crossed at every turn going and returning are changed forever . We are an affect. We are encountering another aspect of God/ Goddess in its infinite variety : the One as the many. Such journeys are the initiation of a spirit in human form. We inspire not by our “perfection”, but rather by our perfect imperfections. Thank you for being such a tender lovable soul. Blessings to you B!.
Thank you so much dear Elizabeth! Love Bracha xxx
I have been following you for years. Your inspiration you give to us all we admire you and thank you for sharing your experiences we all are going through extremely difficult times and we look to your words every month on our signs with joy. I wish you every success in your life now you are back in Greece. May your heart find happiness where ever you are in what every country you are living love, health and happiness always. Sandy – Perth Australia
Thank you for sharing, Bracha. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this post since you first announced your move to NZ! 🙂 Funny how our paths can take us on such winding roads, only to lead us right back to our Self, albeit at a deeper level. I guess that’s why they say it’s about the journey and not the destination hey? 💙
Well I’m glad to know you are safe & sound back *at home* in Greece, and with renewed perspective. May this journey continue to inspire your work, and all of us thru your teachings. 💛
I would be curious to know the astrological overlay of your story. What aspects were occurring in your chart at each of these pivotal moments? Was your 9th house or Jupiter lit up when you moved? Were your Mercury or Mars notably aspected at the time of the fallout? Did Saturn come knocking when it was time to return to Greece? Would love to know any insights you have around this! ✨
Many blessings 🙏🏼
I respect your bravery.
Thank you Bracha, this is inspiring. Just before Covid, i felt the calling to go somewhere north and cold, i chickened out though. With Jupiter coming into Pisces at the end of the year, again, i feel the same stirrings. I too, have no idea what it would be, but i think it is time to go, be brave and get myself out of my rut. Thank you for sharing, you’re helping more people in more ways than you know. Much love!
The voice that calls us to move is so strong that we have to listen and do the move. There is no way not to follow this. I lived this already a few times in my life and now living since one year in Hungary. Moved 3 times in this year and still things are quite chaotic. But what it did to me was that this restleness and survival energy which I very strongly have as a scorpio came to an understanding that there was very little I could fight for or against and slowly it made place for stillness and acceptance, which really is a totally new experience when facing such trouble in life!
Even after trying to learn hungarian for 3 years now, as I always prepare myself in such a way that I am well organized and able to survive in my environment, I still am stumbling and strugling with my words. But People are so kind and helpful that I understood it is ok to look silly and dum, nobody is blaming me for it. I am very happy to be here and learning a total other way of what is important and what not and that help is always there when I need it. Great to hear your story and here I share you mine💕
Thank you so much Bracha for you, POWERFUL sharing.
Love and Hugs and DEEP appreciation
I am so happy that you are back home and thank you for sharing your experience it has taught me to appreciate and be grateful every day for having my place.
Dear Bracha Thank you for sharing this. I am in Christchurch NZ and amd feeling so stale and stuck. I am originally from the UK too and last year visited Italy and feel an intense desire to move there. My dogs here are my closest friends and are the thing that is keeping me here ( one is too old to move) but I am determined to find a way. Thanks again for the inspirational read. Much love and gratitude for all the work you do .Sara
