THE TREK-END DECEMBER 2015

CHRISTMAS DAY …NATIONAL HOLIDAY IN INDIA SO MANY HOLIDAY MAKERS. ENJOYING THE BEAUTIFUL SUNNY DAY ON THE BEACHES OF RAM JHULA

The photos in this post are just some scenes from my last days here….

I have not done much blogging these past three months while in Rishikesh.  I did not feel the need to record and share the many amazing things that have happened to me on the journey this year, and I honored that feeling as much as possible.  This has been an exciting and rewarding three months for me, more than I could ever have imagined…

It was much more than the usual enlightening journey and opportunity to grow that India always is for me.

RAM JHLUA

This trip I was blessed with amazing synchronicities and opportunities to be of service in ways I could never imagine.  People from all over the world found their way to me for many reasons, but it is interesting that all of them, in some way, were dealing with a similar issue, one which I myself had been dealing with for some time and finally found closure here in Rishikesh via an Angel that was sent to me for my own healing and release.

GOOD MORNING LAXMAN JHULA

Being of service to so many, all of them very young, was indeed an honor and a privilege.  To be found worthy to be a channel for messages and information that these young people needed at this place in their own journey, was most humbling.

I was also blessed with a balance of work, which brings me great joy, and leisure and pleasure time which also bring me great joy…being careful not to allow one to take away from the joy of the other.

Most importantly, however, this journey took ME so deep into MYSELF, to places I could never imagine reaching, as to be labeled a TREK rather than a trip.

It’s been an amazing trek for sure, and the ramifications of the discoveries made in these distant places will affect everything that comes after in my life.IMG_20151225_165718

And with this, I say goodbye for this trip, few as the posts may have been, they have been posted with joy.  Hope they brought you all some pleasure and joy as well.

December 25, 2010 – Xmas Once again in Rishikesh

December 25, 2010 – Xmas Once again in Rishikesh

Ganga View at Ram Jhula

Lovely couple of days but nothing much to write – phone still not working (typical Indian story just so that I cannot forget I am actually here!), but I did get my gas balloon today so tomorrow can begin cooking for myself, which is always a pleasure. Had a pleasant day out and about, and have been having daily back massages, IN MY ROOM, to try and straighten out the muscle problems I’ve been experiencing since lifting my much too heavy granddaughter a few months back. If nothing else, it is true pampering!.
Weather is getting just a drop colder from day to day, but so far, still pleasant enough to be comfortable if dressed properly, which I am.
So will end here and just make this a picture post to keep you interested in coming back here.

December 25, 2009 – Xmas in Rishikesh and the Blessings of Service

December 25, 2009 – Xmas in Rishikesh and the Blessings of Service

I always find it funny to be in Rishikesh and see Xmas being celebrated…schools are closed as this is one holiday which is celebrated by all of India. But it wasn’t until this year that I found out there is a Christian community in Rishikesh, and they are not well tolerated. Seems Lalita, the lady who opened the new restaurant and was born in Varanassi, is a Catholic, as is her husband. And right here in Tapovan is a Church which I never knew was a Church. The small community was allowed to build the church on the condition that there would be no outward signs that it was a church, so it is a nice building on the road down to Laxshman Jhula, just across from the leper colony down from Red Chili Internet , but you would not know what it is by passing by. I always thought that India was very tolerant of all religions so this surprised me. Lalita said that Rishikesh is the only place there is a problem, as it is an extremely religious Hindu city and the tolerance level is very low. But she is throwing a big xmas party in her restaurant today including a Xmas tree and no one will bother her as it is “business” and there is full tolerance for businesses earning as much money as they can!
A funny thing happened when I went into the grocery store this morning. A man was shopping and he dropped a large bar of Toblerone chocolate and it fell right on my foot. He apologized and picked it up, and then handed it to me, saying it was apparently mine and wishing me a Merry Xmas. Under normal circumstances I would have considered this a great surprise to enjoy, but I will not eat it and so gave it to Devi, Lakshmi and Dr. ARora to enjoy and they were ever so happy!
When I came into the restaurant for my breakfast, I found this walking stick on the table.

I know you never comment on my blog, but this time I’d like to know what YOU think it is doing there, before telling you the story. So just go to the bottom of the post and comment on why you think there is a walking stick on the table. In a couple of days I will tell the full story.
The weather is really beautiful today, after 2 very cold days and nights, it has gotten a little warmer, but the room is really cold now and so I need my heater for more hours. The high temperature of the day lasts from about 11-4, but even when sitting in the sun now I need a couple of layers of clothing…but the warming heat of the sun penetrates deep into my bones and is truly healing. Every day now, when I finish my treatments at the clinic, I sit outside with dr. arora on his front “terrace”, soaking up the sun’s warmth and watching life go by on this very busy corner. One day I will come down here with my camera and take a video to show you….it is so interesting and diverse that I could literally sit here for hours and not be bored!
And just by the way, although I haven’t mentioned it until now, I do at least one short healing a day, sometimes more, on people I meet, using a new technique I learned, and it brings quite amazing results. I also have met a couple of sweet girls who I am working with, mainly just talking, but the healing is mutually received and quite lovely. It is a true blessing to have these people sent to me as I am never happier or more content then when serving others. I am truly blessed

Namaste
Jane
