Rejuvenate! Fly To Maui Or Create Maui In Your Life At Home

May 7, 2008
The Hawaiians say, "Maui No Ka Oi" which means "Maui Is The Best!" Having lived on the three largest Hawaiian islands and traveled to all the others which are not off limits, I wholeheartedly agree that Maui IS the best, and have chosen to live here again. You never know when you will see a double rainbow with intense colors that remind you of the magic of life.

Honolulu now has a population of over 800,000 people just in the city! Maui is a bigger island with only 180,000 residents on the whole island. There is more green space, less asphalt and development, fewer cars and much less pollution. On the Coconut Wireless I heard Maui is the most visited place on Earth. If you've been here, You know why! Her beauty is breathtaking.

I went snorkeling yesterday and swam with two large turtles. The biggest one was less than a foot away! I could have touched her, but chose not to disturb her silent, graceful swimming which reminded me of an angel flying.

I marveled at the warm, glorious, sunny day. The ocean was so sparkling and clear, I could see to the bottom from the beach! I was trying to think of a way to describe the color of the ocean: ultramarine blue? Azure? The beauty of the deep color itself was mind blowing!

Last week I went hiking by myself on the rim of 10,300 ft. extinct volcano Mt. Haleakala. I was so inspired I had to sit and journal my thoughts and ideas. I could see down into the crater which is ten miles across and looks like no place you have ever been except in your dreams. There were landscapes I could only imagine on the moon in shades of red, gold, pink and orange. . . and the mists rising from the crater floor. The exhilarating experience fed my soul and I walked out of there like I'd been to The Promised Land.

The sights of the ocean, sunsets, and lush tropical vegetation on Maui bring me joy daily. I decided on my own personal retreat recently that I would inform other women about the rejuvenating effect a vacation on Maui could have in their lives.

Imagine kayaking with breaching mother and baby whales! Imagine snorkeling in the wildlife fish and turtle reserves, walking on the beach, laying in the sun in complete relaxation. . . with every bit of tension flowing out of your being. . . creating a new space for new life, new ideas, and a new YOU!

If you can't actually travel to Maui, muse about how you could create the inspiration of Maui in your life now. You could take a nearby mini-vacation in nature, put inspiring photos in your home, make a story board with pictures you cut out from magazines of the things you want most in life, or take a sea salt bath with a lit candle to regenerate your body and mind.

I hope you make time to visit Maui soon for your recreation (re-creating yourself), or find a way to bring the inspiration of Maui as a renewing force into your life at home.
