… and then you will understand everything better.”
Following my mis-adventure climbing Sri Pada (vomited, overdosed on an Ayurvedic tonic, vomited more, was accidentally electrocuted, and then sick for 12 hours)… I came to an agreement to take it easy for a while.
I decided to stay put and instead follow the energy emitted from pure natural minerals crystalized within the Earth… I allowed my mind to wander …
The lands of Egypt and Guatemala have natural gold deposits; Peru is rich in gold and copper; Mexico has gold, silver, and copper; Tibet has gold, silver, copper, and iron; India is rich in gold and diamonds; Sri Lanka is rich in gems and crystals and South Africa diamonds…These are all beautiful “sacred” spiritual hot-spots… These are also places shrouded in legends and ancient histories of Star People and “Gods” who came down from the “heavens”… These are also places currently under attack from foreign “alien” domination and exploitation…
There seems to be a connection between sacred places and Star People, and a clear link between precious mineral deposits of a country and the spiritual manifestation of the self… Is there a link between these precious deposits and those who have come from the sky?
Is it possible that long ago, there really was a battle of “good” vs. “evil”? With creatures of myths, where “good” was defeated, and as a result our civilizations have been shaped by outer “alien” forces, against the well-being of Gaia?
It doesn’t require a genius to point out that something has gone terribly wrong with how our life on Earth has developed … What if the problems we are currently facing, stems further back into antiquity than we ever imagined…
So now, more importantly … Is there a link between those who seek to dominate and control these precious deposits and those who have come from the sky?
(I’m not going to be climbing mountains anytime soon to find out)
My lingering questions brought me to a gem shop, the House of Siris. Offering free aura and chakra readings, the shop provided kind and generous assistance with whatever one’s purpose was for being there. Working with the staff for over an hour to identify the stones I was given as a present, I could tell that his was a place that genuinely wanted to help those attain their spiritual goals.
After learning more about the properties of other stones, feeling their energy, and after much thought and self-reflection, I treated myself to: Rhodonite, the best wound-healing stone, fertility, vitality, and grounding; White Howlite, for calming against bad temper, divine connection and protection; and Larimar, stone of Atlantis for divine guidance, protection, peace and love, universal healing, and meditation (and helps to find a soul-mate).
Initially thinking if I meditated and slept with Larimar, I would dream of my soul-mate ( I couldn’t have been more wrong), I was instead reminded of the wise words of Buddha to not dwell in the past, to not dream of the future, but to concentrate the mind on the present moment. Through dreams it became clear that I had been sucked into an emotionally disorganized timeline, and now, more than ever, I needed to step back and look at the entire picture. I need grounding, structure, and self-control, and there are people here to help make these things reality, in due time…
I am so grateful and fortunate to have seen and experienced the things that I have, leaving Sri Lanka, I have never been sadder. However, knowing that my journey was far from over, and I was returning to being broke and unemployed, I couldn’t help but see this as an opportunity to practice self-control and ground. Life had spun open another similar, yet very different circle. This time round, my eyes and heart are open, my soul has awakened, and I now have a collection of stones to aid my spiritual evolution.
2012 is going to be quite the year 🙂
You are far from the end of your journey.
The way is not in the sky.
The way is in the heart.
See how you love.
