Conscious Creation - Impossible becomes I'm Possible!
"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
Why Unf#ck Your Life?
You may not resonate with having a f#cked up life, but I can guarantee you there is f#cked up shit in your past that is holding you back. This retreat is not designed for f#cked up people, in fact just the opposite. It is people, just like you, with gifts, talents, passions and dreams buried deep inside them under layers of insecurity, uncertainty, fear and issues from the past. In fact, the people who attend these events are the courageous souls, who have decided enough of the the f#cked up shit, I'm ready for more than this!
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 learned 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 10 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.
I met another indigenous healer in Bali who explained to me that the ancient origins of Bali meant "Coming home to yourself". Wow, that was exactly what I had experienced and why I was guided to run the retreats here. 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.

"Ohhhhh Sam …. Where to begin? One of the most courageous decisions I have ever made was to fly to Bali and finally let go of what was hurting my heart and soul and allow myself to feel the beauty that is me.
It is kinda cool how someone can just pop into your life all of a sudden and become so important to you within such a small amount of time and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for showing me that holding onto anger, hurt and pain steals my energy and keeps me from love. I healed several parts of myself on this trip so that I could stop accidentally hurting people that I wanted to love because I was projecting my own wounds on them.
The magic in the workshops was discovering what they were and being supported to spiral through the emotional experiences and heal in layers until it no longer triggered me. I realised that forgiveness is not about excusing or accepting the behaviour of others, but letting go and preventing their behaviour from destroying my heart. I smile, find joy and allow myself to feel … all things I had switched off for the last 20 years prior to Bali.
It is in the midst of change we often discover wings we never knew we had, and I know that there is a past me overflowing with so much pride looking at how far I’ve come. RIP Old Self … I close my eyes to the old and open my heart to new beginnings. Thank you Sam! <3" (M.P. SUnshine Coast)
Thank you Sam..Love you so much! You have definitely helped me let go of so much.. Don't think I will ever be able to thank you...Life changer indeed. One of most healing, amazing and connected experiences I have ever had! Sam was truly there for me, and everybody. Lots of laughs, and being around amazing people, highly recommend, totally worth it xx " (L.G. Victoria)
"Absolutely loved it, talk about opening the door wide open spiritually. It took me to the next level or maybe a few". (L.R. Tasmania)
""An incredibly soul enriching experience. Sam you are wonderfully warm and inviting, professional and compassionate. For me this experience conquered my biggest fear of flying! And the thought of travelling alone was frightening....I came home a grown up! I developed amazing skill and new found confidence. To sum this up in only a word would be MAGICAL!"(D.S. NSW)
"Thank you Sam you are certainly one amazing lady & I have done so much that I wouldn't have done without you". (R.A. NSW)
"Thank you Sam for the amazing Tour, because of you that you enhanced my life & my world & have given me a new drive forward, love you always for you being the special you xxx (J.B. Perth)
"Thank you Sam it was truly amazing and totally soul inspiring". (K.S. Victoria)
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.
