Guatemala Unplugged

by Marcy White on April 13, 2016

hello anyone listening,

I got the message within 3 days of my adventure that I was not to be concerned about communicating via fb or any other media while on my 9 week adventure into Belize and Guatemala. Within 5 days I lost my plug in for my tablet. Bought a new one. Two days later I lost my tablet. That’s when I said ‘Okay, I get it”.

Another few days and I lost my hiking shoes. I cried. I then realized that eveything from this life as habits was to be left behind.

my trip was hard.

yet, i miss it.

the walking unkown villages and meeting mayan people who may speak spanish and if they do it is their second language as well as my minimal ability. when all else failed we pantomined. I love charades. Always comes in handy for language barriors. I walked the less traveled places and mayan people came out of their homes and wanted to speak with me. They were excited to meet someone on their road. I was speaking in spanish to all the kids and they were just smiling but not saying anything. The dad soon appeared and said that they did not know spanish. Another home had all women living in a pink house. I love pink and was trying to tell them I like the color. A boy came out and said they do not speak spanish but they were all laughing and giggling as I tried to communicate with the boy who did speak spanish.

it was sad to see the children who grew up learning to steal.

it was heartmarming to meet the children working to sell their mamas chocolate with their innocence. Some of us tourists enticed them into playing mode. We bought their chocolate but then got them giggling as we tried to communicate and finally ended up rolling on the floor hugging each other.

on one hike i actually got to see a snake going after a mouse. they went back and forth in front of me in slow motion. then when the snake killed th mouse I left before all the carnage was over.

well friends, i guess this is all i need to share.

love and light and be greatful for what we have here!!!!!!!!!!!

What Others Think of Me

by Marcy White on November 20, 2015

I recently wrote this post on facebook. It is related to my upcoming trip to Belize and Guatemala. Currently going for 2 months backpacking around and camping when possible. I may decide to live for a year in Guatemala. I have always wanted to immerse myself in another culture and learn their language. Maybe part of that reason is I won’t know what people are thinking of me. They can just babble on in their own language and I can ignore.

Quotes
Many moons ago when I worked in the corporate world I was always taken with posters that people would hang on the wallls within their office. This was back when we all had offices with walls. Later it became and ‘open space’ kind of environment.
Anyway, the first one I noticed was..’Comprimise but do do not comprimise yourself’. The woman in this office was quite rigid and guarded so I thought the quote befitting. But I respected her aspiration to become what the quote said.
The next one (in a different job) was a picture of a gorilla saying ‘If I want your opinion I will beat it out of you’. Again I thought this really suited the nature of the person and no need for argument there. Although when I set the lab on fire he was the first to respond and put the fire out. Haha, sad but true story. He knew his place.
My favorite one is ‘Your opinion is none of my business’. This one was displayed by a person I thought was calm and centered.
This is what I am striving for and I hope my upcoming 2 month trip to Belize and Guatemala will help solidify this concept.
Cheers

And today I realized that journey has already begun. I have noticed people think more highly of me for doing the trip and going on an adventure and yes I know they are thinking ‘Wow, cool at her age’. And then of course my mother’s reaction……..’Oh Marcy I wish you would not do these things’…….well, she worries about me on so many levels it really doesn’t matter. And then you have the people who think I am nuts for going to what they think are unsafe countries.

The point is whether or not you think highly or poorly of me is not important. What matters is how I feel about what I am doing.

WOW………..am looking forward to letting go and chilling out.

How much can we change of ourselves?

October 12, 2015

I have an exploding temper. It comes on like a fast rage. I know I can take deep breathes and do yoga to help this irrational rage subside, but how can I change the inherent nature of mine? Yes, I know I can also use Access Consciousness but after years of using all these techniques, […]

Nasty mean cruel people

July 5, 2015

I have recently had the misfortune to have some real ugliness thrown my way. People who lie and say cruel mean things. I know I did not deserve this so I asked my guides what was going on. I asked if I needed to learn something from it. They said no. So I asked why […]

Euphanasia….Friend or Foe?

I gotta tell you I absolutely hated having the responsibility of deciding when it was time to put Juna down. I agonized over the decision for 2 months before finally deciding to do it. However, once I made the decision my body said it was definitely the right decision. I trust my body more than […]

The Sound of My Own Laughter

April 19, 2015

I have been going through some tough times lately as my beloved dog Juna has become quite ill. I know her time is near and after doing some pre mourning I realized I needed to “Get it Together Emotionally”. I started watching some old shows like Cheers, Friends and Mash. These shows make me laugh […]
