a question for hippies..and spiritual travelers.. this title sounds so lame but i dunno what to write here lol
Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures
Greetings from the US!(:
My personal advice, is that the "hippy wanderer lifestyle" by definitions is you following your own path. I, personally, awoke to the realization that my duty in life is to be a shamanic healer, herbalist, and energy worker, and to live in balance with this earth we live on and as far from the "system" as possible.
By following my heart, talking to those around me, and trusting the world would put what was needed in front of me, I am now going to college to become a chiropractor and learning the rest through other routes, something i never thought would happen. i typically dislike institutions, but since i am working towards a way of solidifying my "weird hippy" lifestyle in something western, i will be able to pay off whatever is needed to please the system while living outside of it. I plan to build a tiny house community out where i live, start growing whatever i need to survive, and working towards "Off grid" living that allows me to be free of most financial responsibilities so i can heal for the sake of healing, not for profit.
My point is, my journey wont work for everyone. heck, it wont work for most people, and it rightly shouldn't! its my path to walk, and your path to walk is yours, just walk it with an open heart and approach everything with an open mind, and you will be surprised where you end up (: i have friends who have stranded themselves in other countries for years at a time, and by simply trusting "it is what it is" and realizing that home is a place in your heart, they made their way back in one piece.sometimes you have to work for the things you need, sometimes it comes from the generosity of others, and sometimes it comes from mother earth, but the whole point of the "wandering" is trusting the journey because you know its your journey, and you only get to take it once.
I hope this helped, blessings to you on all your future endeavors! may every sunrise bring you hope, and may every sunset bring you peace (:
