"Bali stirred me in a way that I could not ignore. It awakened a part of me that I had forgotten existed; an aspect of self that had been anesthetised by life. Bali's invitation was to dance to an unknown, yet familiar rhythm. A dance of self discovery, self realisation and ultimately self acceptance and love"
extract from Bali diary by Samantha Gillard
None of us are immune to the weather systems of life. The storms, the hurricanes and the Tsunamis's that hit (at times unexpectedly) and alter the landscape of our life and leave us questioning who we are and what we do from here. It was a Tsunami that completely wiped out the life I knew. In a matter of moments, everything I loved and valued was either gone, destroyed or severely compromised.
Although I have been helping people professionally through trauma, loss and crisis for over 20 years, nothing really prepared me for the rebuild that was ahead of me. Faced with a choice: to wait for someone or something to rescue me or to put on my big girl pants and rescue myself! Of course I wanted to be rescued, it's human nature to want someone/something to magically make everything better again, but that is not how life often operates. There were lessons for me to learn, things that were long overdue to change and some amazing people to meet and places to discover ahead of me.
It was one morning several years ago as I was drowning in my self pity of how f#cked up my life had become that it hit me... it's time to unf#ck your life! In that moment I stopped being a helpless victim of lives weather and I started to actively rebuild the life I wanted, brick by brick. I refined my tools, knowledge and technique to fast track my healing and of course my transformation. When I began the process of unf#cking my own life, I had no idea that it would include a fast body transformation (70kg lost in 6 months), a new passion for dance (had never danced before), new people, new connections, new outlook on life and finally three years later, new love. But best of all, this process renewed my passion to help people transform their weather affected lives into something more meaningful and enriching.
Why Unf#ck Your Life?
Life, people, events, situations can seriously f#ck you up, and disconnect you from who you are. When fucked up shit happens we often go into survival mode. We lose ourselves and disconnect from our dreams and we enter the automatic survival pilot mode. Even when the fuckedupedness ceases we are often stuck in this suspended automated version of our life. This is NOT living..... it is simply going through the motions of existing. Have your ever felt that life felt more like groundhog day, than an actual exciting adventure?
It doesn't matter what happened to f#ck you up, what matters is the choice you make now... to Om the F#ck down and Unf#ck Your Life. Om the F#ck down is the process of working with your limbic system, the flight/fight/freeze centre of your brain. You see when we are F#cked up it messes with our energy, it messes with our brains, our bodies, our emotions and our perceptions. Being F#cked up puts our body's into Limbic overdrive, where fear starts to imprison us and anxiety and self doubt become the dominant driving force. Om the F#ck down is about resetting our limbic system, shaking up the automated stress programs and getting back into alignment where good shit happens easily.
Unf#cking your life is the process of taking back the control you lost, disconnecting from the negative wounding energy and reclaiming your sense of self. Getting clear on the life you want and how you want to live it. It may seem hard but it doesn't have to be. I've leaned that we make things way harder than they need to be, so now I'm very committed to keeping it simple, fun but powerful.
Join me for 7 transformative days where we Om the F#ck down in the heart of Bali and Unf#ck Your Life together.
I have run successful retreats in the UK and USA for 7 years now and to be honest, Bali was never a place that I wanted to visit. I had this perception of it that distorted the lived reality. It was a dance retreat in October of 2018 that first took me to Bali. I can't really put into words what it was, but something changed deep within me, with very little effort. The energy of Bali had provided me with something I had not found in all my travels around the world.... a place to really connect with me! Not the me that I project to the world, not the me that works as a psychic/medium and healer, but the real me that was sitting in the background of my life waiting for the invitation to be present. Not only that, it offered me a place of crystal clear inspiration and clarity around what needed to continue to heal and to change yet another layer of my life.
I returned home after the 12 days with a promise to myself and also a Shaman I had encountered on my trip to return to Bali and continue the journey. In January of 2019 I set out on a 2 month adventure in the place where I had first discovered myself.... Ubud. Once over there, I began to make plans to stay at least for another 2-4 months. But a couple weeks before I was due for a visa run, things shifted and changed and the embrace of Bali loosened and I knew I would not be able to stay a day more than the 2 months. With a sad and heavy heart I entered a meditation to have "a chat" with the universe. I was shown the need to bring people back to Bali to experience this same healing and transformational energy. I returned home at the beginning of March and put together a retreat as asked to by the universe.
Bali is a magical place, but Ubud which is often referred to as the heart of this land of gods is where I connect with my universal heartbeat. A spiritual melting pot of energy from all over the world and a mecca of eclectic people. The best way I can describe Ubud is to say that it holds you in a safe embrace which allows you the courage to transform. It is quite simply medicine for the soul.
No matter what internal weather systems (such as fear, insecurity, self doubt, low self esteem, unworthiness etc)
have rocked the landscape of your life or whether you've been hit with an external weather system such
as grief, loss, divorce, separation, illness, empty nest or financial uncertainty... this retreat is for you!
It also does not matter where you are in the rescue/rebuild phase, if you would like to immerse yourself
in healing, gain clarity and transform you life in order to attract the things you need,
then join me on a soul focused adventure to
Om the F#ck Down and let's Unf#ck your Life together in Bali!

I love to travel to places where I feel my soul calls me, because when I answer that call and follow my intuition there is always a gift there awaiting me. My journey with past lives is very much associated with my travel. It was in Italy in 2008 that I had my first vivid past life remembrance. It was as if I was frozen in time watching actors before me react something that felt so very familiar and known within my soul. Then in 2009 when I travelled to Hawaii the same thing happened. It was random flashbacks, I did not seek them out, I did not meditate to connect; they would just appear out of nowhere. It wasn’t simply that I had remembered these ancient soul memories but how it transformed and changed my life. Issues that I had dealt with all my life suddenly disappeared and the grip that fear associated with these events once had was gone. It was as if reconnecting at these places which I had been lifetimes before had offered not only healing of issues that my soul had carried but liberation and freedom.
Since then, I have travelled to many parts of the world now and each time there is something, a connection, a memories and healing that occurs that helps me move forward in this life, to stand empowered and be who I am. For the last 7 years I have facilitated transformational travel experiences for other people. These trips are more than just holidays or visits to ancient and sacred sites, they are an opportunity to connect with the ancient energy, the wisdom and the transformational healing that each of these sites offer. This is not just a holiday, it is a chance to experience more of you in a beautiful place that holds space for those who are called to come.
