My first holiday: A detox trip to Kutch, Gujarat

The Great Rann of Kutch, GujaratI took my first off since I launched my service and went on a train trip. It was a great “detox” trip, as indicated by Archangel Raphael. The destination was the Great Rann of Kutch, which is a seasonal salt marsh located in a desert in the Kutch District of Gujarat, India. It takes 13 hours by train from Mumbai, where I live in.

About a month ago, a friend of mine told me about her plan to visit the white desert and asked me if I would like to join her. I love travelling, and it had been almost a year since my last trip. I hesitated for a moment as I now have my online service to run. However, my heart was set on going on the trip.

We chose the weekend closest to the full moon for the trip because we heard that moonlight beautifully reflects on the surface of the white desert.

On the morning of my departure, I asked Archangel Raphael for a message; I pulled a card from the Archangel Raphael Healing Oracle Cards, which provides you with health-related advice. The card was Detoxification. I was going to go to the Rann of Kutch, which is a salt marsh; I thought that standing on the land covered with salt would be like taking a detoxifying sea-salt bath.

However, it wasn’t only the salt that detoxified my negative thoughts and cleared away toxic energies from my body.

Our accommodations were completely natural and pretty; the walls and floors of the huts were made of mud; the ceiling was made of wood; drinking water was served in a clay pot and cups. Inside the huts, it was cool during the day and warm at night. It was a peaceful stay. Even the food was kept on the top of charcoal stoves to stay warm.

At the White Rann of Kutch, watching the sun set below the western horizon and the moon rise from the eastern horizon simultaneously was a blissful moment. Just being there in the moonlit desert, emptying my mind and looking at both the sun and the moon together, gave me a soothing sense of peace. That night must have been surely the best one for bathing my moonstone pendant in moonlight.

After having dinner at the hotel, there was a cultural class for dancing in the courtyard. The melody of the local folk music was simple but powerfully played and sung. We enjoyed dancing barefoot in the moonlight.

During my stay, I felt very grounded.

Once I got back, I found myself so refreshed, as if I was reborn. I had to realize how busy my mind had been before the trip.

Then, I came across a great reminder while watching a YouTube video of Marie Forleo, who is my online mentor. The guest in her video was the author of the book, the Top Five Regrets of the Dying, and the regret no. 2 was: “I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.” 

It certainly gave me a sense of having done the right thing; I had enjoyed my first holiday. I also let these words sink into my heart for maintaining a fine balance.

I’d like to emphasize that this regret no.2 is very important to remember—especially when you love your work.

Archangel Raphael is known as the patron of travellers as well. So, I am grateful to my friend, Archangel Raphael, and all the people I met during the holiday. It was a pleasant trip with a touch of fantasy.

I’ll look forward to my next journey✨
