In this episode I’m going to share my
five tips about what to do when you face crisis or some kind of a breakdown while
traveling Hi everyone! This is Justyna welcome to my channel where I tell the
whole story about my 9-month solo journey in India and if you’re new here
consider subscribing If you travel for so long especially if you travel by yourself there is 100 percent of a chance that you that you will face multiple challenges and have to deal with some kind of a crisis. Like I did hence this video I was going through a major travel crisis
when I arrived in Hampi To be honest I’m not having fun. I haven’t been having fun recently, I’m not in a mood i It was so major that after I went
through it nothing like that ever happened again during the remaining six
months that I spent in India. Not even a minor thing everything changed for good
after this one Imagine you’re exploring your dream
country, walking around the ancient ruins tasting new cuisine, meeting new people,
being far from regular daily life problems Basically living your dream
because that’s what it was for me and yet somehow not being able to enjoy it AT ALL With tears in your eyes not even being able to comprehend why it feels so
bad That was me in hampi but something magical happens there, something that
cured me from this situation and I’m going to share what by the end of this
video so make sure to stay with me but now let’s jump into the five tips that I
have for you about what to do when you face a situation like this Tip number one
Don’t beat yourself up Don’t beat yourself up for feeling the
way you feel. Also yourself to be in a bad mood, be kind to yourself, be your
best friend especially if you travel by yourself I remember I was hard on myself.
How can I not enjoy my time here? How can I be so ungrateful? I am blessed to be
here. While all my friends leaving their regular lives I am living my dream. How
can I be depressed? What’s wrong with me? This kind of attitude won’t help and it
didn’t. It only gives you one more reason to feel down. It’s okay to feel this way.
There’s always a reason why you feel a certain way. It’s your job to recognize it Tip number two: Eliminate your basic
human needs Have a rest, get a good sleep in a comfortable bed. Have a good meal,
drink water, breathe deeply go on a walk. Eliminate all the basic needs Maybe you’re just exhausted. Ask yourself
these simple questions: am I hungry? Am I thirsty? Am I sleepy? Am I comfortable? Am I lonely? Do I need to move more? When I arrived in Hampi I was exhausted physically and mentally even more. It had been the first
month of travelling after I left my apartment in New Delhi so the whole
situation was new to me I was still adjusting as I was a bad thing and
choosing the cheapest options I wasn’t able to have a proper rest in a
comfortable bed, I was having only cold showers in those shacks
I gave up on all those self body care rituals and literally all I dreamed
about and I have it written, I have it written in my journal, that all I dreamed
about at that time was to spend a couple of days in my comfortable bed with my
laptop doing just nothing and maybe a couple of hours in spa. That was all I
dreamed about Who knows maybe a healthy meal and the
massage is all you need Once you meet your basic needs and you’re still
feeling down then you can start getting to the core cause of your crisis Tip number three: Take it easy Take this traveling thing easy. Reduce
the pressure if that’s your issue You’ve planned your perfect itinerary and
you’re supposed to arrive in a point A at a certain time otherwise you won’t
make it to the point B Chill. Relax, you won’t enjoy it anyway. What is the
purpose of your travel? Is it to go to and see as many places as possible or is
it to enjoy while you’re trying to do it? Because sometimes it’s impossible to
have both, so it’s better to give up on that next location. You wouldn’t enjoy it Tip number four: Find a way to express your feelings/travel emotions This one is very important and it is crucial if you’re a solo traveler Travel experiences might be so overwhelming if you don’t have a way to express your feelings or share them with someone I looked up to my journal and I can clearly see that I
didn’t have time to express my emotions write about it during that time and
that’s because most of the time I spend with other people. From some Goa to Gokarna to the Indian wedding I didn’t have a space for ‘me time’, for ‘alone time’
when when I could write and express my emotions though I felt like I really
needed it You need to have your way to express your feelings, store your memories, to digest your experiences For me it was writing and I recommend it. For
you it might be something else Maybe talking to another travelers, calling
your loved ones, writing a poem, creating music making videos, posting on social
media. Whatever works for you Tip number five Surrender Make space for receiving your answer All I said so far relates to
this one. It kind of prepares for this Make space for the answer or the relief to come. Accept what is and be open to whatever is going to come Apart from all the obvious and rational reasons why I felt so bad I knew there was something
more that I couldn’t recognize If you feel this way, if you can’t see a good
reason why you feel so bad then ask yourself this question: what is it really
about? And I mean it, ask this question say out loud, write it down, think it, but
ask it. Once you have a question you’ ll most probably get the answer. If you don’t
have a question the answer will not come and I’m serious. So when I was passing by
those ancient temples all the tears Wtf? I begged. I was begging the Universe for help,
for answer, for some kind of a sign I begged for solution and I let it go and
letting go is also important So the next day I went on a motorbike ride with
another traveler. I made the previous video about it. And I wasn’t dwelling on
my moo, on my questions and answer I was just, I kept myself still and that
was when the Universe responded so make space for the answer to come This brings me to the story that I promised to tell you At the place where I was staying
it was very easy to socialize with other travelers We were hanging out at the restaurant,
sitting on the pillows and talking And there was this guy who seemed
very spiritual, he was meditating a lot he was holding his crystal balls
in his hands or something, but it wasn’t weird at all because in India there are
many people on their spiritual journeys I didn’t realize yet that was one of
them. Well he had those tarot cards which I randomly asked him about
and he asked me if I wanted to try I sure did. I don’t remember if I had to
have a question before I picked the cards but if I… yeah if I had a question
then you might guess what it was about So I picked the first three cards and
then two more which he helped me to… like interpret, he helped me… he explained
what they might mean I couldn’t make any sense of those cards but once he did it was mind blowing,
it was… it just blew my mind It was incredible
So I was trying to memorize the cards that I picked but he told me not to do
that, like he knew I was trying to do that He told me not to do that because
all of that was already in my subconsciousness or in my higher consciousness I would say To give you like a little bit more information where
I really was at at that time I had this idea of this time in India, of this
journey, that it had to be life changing Before India I wasn’t in a very good place, I was confused, I didn’t know what to do with my life I didn’t know what is my purpose, what is the meaning, which way I should go My biggest fear about this journey was for it to be just an awesome adventure after which I would just go
back to the same confused life with no exciting goals and plans for the future So I wanted to make sure that it wouldn’t happen that was when I came up
with an idea of creating a YouTube channel this was my idea of how I can
make the journey more by taking deliberate and conscious
action, like taking the control of it But life doesn’t really work this way and
sometimes if you have an idea of something that is best for you, you might
miss something that life gives you that is really best for you So I was, I wanted
to make those videos while traveling and when I started to realize that it’s
impossible, that I could just film but it was impossible to put it together and
literally do it all while traveling but I still couldn’t let it go, it made so
much pressure on me So that’s on top of that overwhelming experiences of the
previous month brought me to the point of total helplessness and the breakdown and the crisis As ridiculous as it might seem that tarot cards made me out of
this crisis, of this situation I truly believe, I actually know that it
was the message from the Universe that the Universe responded to my question
Yeah it’s just I know it was it Only I know, only I knew what it really meant
for me, it was just exactly what I needed and I felt… I immediately felt connected.
I sat there in cross-legged position with my eyes closed, I was crying, my spine
straightened up and it kept on straightening up and up and up. There
were people, around I was like crying I didn’t care, they didn’t care and I felt
so connected. I felt connected to the Spirit, to the Universe, today I would say
to my Higher Consciousness and I felt so relieved. It was almost
like I was intoxicated in the feeling of relief and I felt like I comprehended everything.
I understood everything and I mean everything. Like I can’t explain
what I mean by everything and I wouldn’t back then and even today but everything
made so much sense and I knew that everything will be okay, good and better
after this. It was such a relief, it was… it was it was a real spiritual
experience and it really changed everything The next two days were my
best days in Hampi I rented a motorbike which I wanted to do for
a few days but I didn’t have enough confidence Yeah I can’t wait to tell you about the next two days in Hampi in the upcoming videos So I don’t know if any
of you would find those tips useful but I hope you at least enjoyed the story I’m all about trusting and surrendering to the Universe this story was one of my
first realizations and first steps on my spiritual journey that continues until
