The Magic of Tulum By Gina Swire. When one door closes…
I wasn’t supposed to be here. And yet it is exactly where I am meant to be. My journey to Tulum is a divine reminder to trust that the universe is conspiring for our greatest good at all times, even when we can’t see it… I was lying in the bath in Poulton, England, with tears streaming down my face. The last 6 months had been some of the toughest of my life and every cell in my body was craving the sunshine, sea, and sisterhood that mama Bali provides.
Bali has been my second home for years and I was due to return to her loving arms after a break-up and near-death covid experience that had rocked me to my core. When I’m in Bali I operate at my highest frequency, supported by the conscious community I live with. Last December I needed that support more than ever.
But on the day that I was due to travel, after renting out my UK home, putting my winter clothes in storage, organising my Covid tests, and packing my suitcase, the paperwork I needed didn’t arrive. I couldn’t go.
Another door opens…
As a self-love expert, I have learned to fully trust and surrender when challenges present themselves. I’ve also learned the importance of welcoming all emotions, especially the painful ones. So I let myself be fully present with feelings of intense disappointment and sadness.
And, from that place of surrender, a word was whispered into my mind… “Mexico”.
Within a few days, I was in Tulum.
When I receive divine guidance, I trust it wholeheartedly. Downloads from Spirit have led me to my most treasured experiences. And this was no exception.
For the first few days, I wanted to be invisible. I still felt vulnerable and needed to take it gently. Slowly – surrounded by amazing people, bountiful nature, and abundant opportunities for body, mind, and soul invigoration – I began to feel revived. Tulum’s magic reattuned me with my own magic. Soon I was feeling more inspired, potent, and supercharged than I had in months. The energy in Tulum is next-level amazing!
What to expect
Beautiful people with beautiful hearts. Deep conversations with conscious entrepreneurs that set your soul on fire. Jungle, sand, sea. Sunsets that take your breath away. Phenomenal food. Ecstatic dance, kundalini yoga, cacao ceremonies, plant medicine pleasure portals, movement workshops, cenote parties (cenotes are ancient caves with the most divine clear blue water)… the list is endless. And it really shouldn’t just be a list – it should be a lived experience. Reconnect with your own magic as you experience the magic of Tulum. And remember, with self-love, anything is possible.
Nômade Tulum (https://www.nomadetulum.com) – my favourite place to stay (it’s pricey and soooo worth it). Cacao ceremonies, lots of conscious entrepreneurs, holistic cuisine, wellness workshops, dance, meditation, movement, live music, stunning beach – as a non-guest you can pre-book the events too!
Ikal Tulum Hotel (https://ikaltulumhotel.com-hotel.com/en/) – sweat lodge, Sunday ecstatic dance with live DJs and musicians, community feel, swinging sunbeds to live for.
Mia By Selina (https://www.miatulum.com/) – amaaazing food in a magnificent setting. You can get a gorgeous day bed for the whole day on one of the most beautiful parts of the beach (minimum spend applies). The best shrimp tacos and guac in town in my opinion.
Copal Tulum Hotel (https://www.copaltulumhotel.com/en) – great sushi restaurant, massages, and beautiful luxury apartments and rooms.
Holistika. (https://www.holistikatulum.com/) – fantastic healthy raw food, all the yoga, and conscious activities classes, beautiful kundalini yoga dome, art walk. It’s divine!
