How to live abroad on only $650 per monthApr 25, 2022
A large part of my sexual healing journey has been focused on how to value myself by stepping forward into what it is that I want and deserve. Living abroad has been a part of reclaiming my power and healing in the midst of recovering from sexual trauma, which originated while I was abroad. It is possible to live a thriving, safer, well life in any environment, but my travels made me realize that some places deplete my energy way quicker than it is being replenished. As a Black, Queer American born to immigrant parents, I realized that this was very true for my experience. This is why I chose to move to Mexico on a monthly budget of about $650/month! The freedom that comes from imagining where I wanted to live and how I could design my life of peace, balance and restoration was far greater than the fear of being in a place that seemed strange or different simply because I was not use to the culture. One thing that my time abroad has taught me is that I can create whatever experience I would like, not just when I am out at a luxury Eco-Lodge in the middle of a beautiful tropical forest (Ghana), but also when I am just in my living room, or walking to the park, or buying my plantains at the Tianguis.
My Queer experience (I am talking about my whole life, not just my sexuality and gender identity), bears witness to the power that is me in this very form with the option to CHOSE how I proceed forward. The violation of my body under so many methods devised by a system that hates the mere thought that I exist is what kept me tethered to places that did not resonate with my authenticity. As I have been loving on me in solitude and finding spaces of refuge, as Spirit, my Ori and my heart move in tandem towards my most fulfilled and joyful life, I can't help but to think how very blessed and grateful I am to have found a path in dark times that nourished my ability to center the dreams I imagined outside on the margins.
In this week's video blog, I share a little more about my experience and some ancestral tips for how to move forward with finding a new home abroad, along with an activation prayer.
