International Lucia Light Tour Recap

Home may be where the heart is, but how many homes can one person have?

We absolutely love California and being home with our beloved cat, Toby, but traveling is truly one of our great joys in life. Traveling is such a gift and we feel so fortunate to have been in seven different countries this past year being of service and doing what we love. We cannot wait to set out on our next adventure. We love seeing new places, meeting new people, eating new food, and going outside of our comfort zone to learn and grow as part of working with the Lucia Light.

This most recent adventure included the beautiful, volcanic island of Iceland, the vibrant and sweet country of Belgium, and the charming and colorful Netherlands. Our mission was to co-create an event with The Lucia Light with our soon to be friend Allan in Antwerp Belgium. An extended layover in Iceland would provide us time to explore and demo the light to owners at Hydra Float Spa as well. And what an adventure it was!

Iceland

Neither Zachary nor I had ever been to Iceland so we jumped at the chance to have two long layovers there. After a very long journey to get to the airport and an even longer flight, we landed in Keflavik. Going on no sleep, no food, and pure excitement we rented a car to drive the Golden Circle of natural wonders that Iceland has to offer. To say it was beautiful would be an understatement. Iceland is simply otherworldly. Driving around we felt like we were exploring a different planet filled with vibrant green mosses, smoking volcanic mountains, and beautiful blue waters.

We were in awe despite our sleep deprivation. It kept us motivated to keep on going, until we could not keep our eyes open any longer and had to pull over for a nap. After a brief nap and some snacks we continued on our way. If you ever get the opportunity to see Iceland, even for 24 hours, take it. To try to describe it would do it no justice. It is so unique and magical. Magical is really the only way to describe what we saw.

That night we camped out and headed to the airport bright and early the next day. We just got a tiny taste and had to move on to our next destination.

Belgium

To sum up our time in Antwerp, the operative word would have to be SWEET. The food was unbelievable and we definitely indulged in pastries and chocolate. But when in Belgium, right? How could we say no when we spent such a limited amount of time there? We took on the challenge to eat all the pastries and I have to say mission accomplished. We ended every night with saying, “no more sugar” and started every morning with a nice stroll to the pastry shop. Looking through the glass enclosures with wide eyes and watering mouths, every morning was a sweet adventure. Not only were we feeding our sweet tooth, but our amazing host, Allan, also contributed. He brought boxes of the little sticky treats every time we saw him. We could not be more grateful for how seriously he took our mission to eat our way through Belgium.

Little did we know that in Antwerp they have the best falafel in the world, complete with awards and hand written cards to verify. How lucky were we to taste the amazing flavors of the best falafel in the whole world? Needless to say it was delicious and we ate there more than once. Unfortunately we did only have one Belgian waffle while we were there, but of course, it was delicious. And the owner of the waffle place was so kind and lots of fun to talk to. And the chocolate, the chocolate is indescribable. So rich, delicious, and flavorful, that it left us asking, how do they do it?

Experience

Not only were we excited to see a new place and try all the food that they had to offer, but we were there to open a light portal for the good of all who would benefit from it. We had traveled a very long way to reach Belgium and were curious to see how the experiences with the light would go.

The Lucia Light was met with curiosity, uncertainty, and a sense of wonder. The sessions were magical and each one so unique. There is always a range in experiences from deep relaxation to deeply profound journeys. After 2 days of sessions we finished feeling gratified by the feelings of healing that were expressed by all light travelers.

We met so many wonderful people in Belgium and they were all so warm and welcoming. Allan has such a wonderful community and we felt blessed to be welcomed in. It is truly a gift to be able to work with this beautiful light technology and a blessing to see each person come out on the other side having learned something new about themselves. It really is a reminder that our inner light shines and in doing so connects us all where ever we go.

Our newfound friend Allan embarks one of his first journeys with The Lucia Light.

Thank You Belgium!

It was inspiring to see that so far away from home, people are just as moved and open to the Lucia Light. Traveling is a good reminder that no matter where you are in the world, people are people. And the people of Antwerp are just as sweet as their confections. To end this post we just want to say, thank you so much to Allan and Josephine for opening your home and community to us. You were such amazing hosts and set such a high standard that we only hope we can meet it when you come visit us in California!

We will always remember out time in Antwerp fondly and hope to return someday soon!

National Lucia Light Tour Recap

Home Sweet Home…For a Bit

We have returned home after our first national Lucia N°03 Light Tour. After many hours planning, driving, and sharing the light, we have a short respite back in California. Now is the time to enjoy cuddles with our lovely furry friend Toby, catch up on sleep, spend time with friends and family, and make some last minute arrangements for our international light tour. In the mean time, we thought that it would be fun to reminisce and share the highlights from our most recent adventures.

Life on the road is such a balance of exciting and new mixed with lots of time spent in the car. Fortunately we travel with lots of good music, yummy snacks, and a penchant for adventure. We got to see changing landscapes and lots of gas stations. From forests in California, to the desert in Nevada, to rockhounding in Idaho, (a brief snow storm in Wyoming), to mountainous Montana, and at last the beautiful buttes of North Dakota, we saw it all.

First Stop: Reno

To kick off our adventure we stopped pretty close to home. There we opened a frequency portal with a sound healing at The Studio. This was a wonderful way to begin our adventure. The healing vibrations from the gong and handpan set the tone for the rest of our journey.

The Studio Reno is a sanctuary among the bright lights and vast casinos of the city. It is a soothing place where people can gather for yoga classes, hang out in the relaxing shared space, enjoy the evening tea lounges, and on the off chance, experience the Lucia Light. The space felt like a great fit for light healing. The community who gather at The Studio are cultivating a fun, healthy way to spend time in “The Biggest Little City in the World”.

After our first evening in Reno, The Studio hosted the Lucia N°03 Light. We were not quite sure how the day was going to proceed as we set up in one of the massage rooms. The individuals that we met on that second day of our tour sparked a hopeful outlook for the remainder of our travels. They were open and receptive to a new experience and had some very transformational experiences. They were so articulate and really let go into the light. Everyone really enjoyed their totally unique journeys and the feedback that we got was nothing short of inspiring.

Pinnacle Wellness

We spent our third day in Reno at Pinnacle Wellness Spa. There are not enough good things to say about Pinnacle and the owner Kerri. It was a full day of wonderful people and heartwarming experiences. One of the greatest parts of working with the Lucia N°03 Light is processing with individuals after their light session. There is such a range of experiences and it is always so rewarding hearing about how one session can really affect a person. Especially when a person comes in a bit skeptical or not knowing quite what they are getting into, when they have a good session their whole demeanor changes. Often with individuals who go into the light, at the end of a session it feels like a shield lifts and behind is an amazing, pure being.

It was so lovely how open those that tried the light at Pinnacle were. They were expressive and appreciative of what they saw and felt.

Idaho and Montana

We of course had to stop in Idaho to look for cool rocks on our way to Bozeman. With promises of geodes right off the road, we took a break that turned out to be longer than we had anticipated. Every step resulted in a, “look at this rock” or “ooh come look over here”. When we could finally tear ourselves away, we continued on our road trip.

We were well on our way to Montana. We drove for the whole day and as we were closing in on our next stop we had to drive through a corner of Wyoming. There we encountered white out conditions while driving at night. Fortunately we did make it that night to Bozeman. There we had a brief rest and spent some quality time with family in a beautiful location. When we arrived, we shared the light and got some time to make some sessions of our own. We got to go on a hike through the snow covered mountains. We made snowballs and admired icicles. Then we prepared for the next part of our journey to North Dakota.

North Dakota

Neither Zachary, nor I had ever been to North Dakota. We had no expectations except to see a new place and to meet some new people. When we arrived we met our hosts at Balanced Energy Healing. We set up the light and our sound healing instruments and shared a light and sound journey with our hosts. It is always a fun time when we get to play with the gong, handpan, and our other instruments. When paired with the Lucia Light, live sound can really elevate everyone involved.

The next couple days of sessions went well and we were happy to find people in North Dakota were interested and open to the new experience. We got positive feedback and quite a few people expressed an interest in trying the light again.
