Nokan Inti Kani ~ I Am the Sun: Our Sacred Journey to Peru Through My Eyes – PART 2
This is the second and concluding part to our sacred journey to Peru. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for joining the experience with us. If you’re just tuning in, you may want to check out Part 1 first to put this all into context. You can find it here:
Day 6 – 3/16/15: Today we headed back for our second encounter with Machu Picchu, leaving in the morning and getting back before 1 pm. We started the day with a vigorous uphill hike on part of the Inca Trail from the city to Inti Punto (the Sun Gate or Sun Door). We started at 8500 elevation and worked our way up another 1500+ feet to just over 10,000 elevation. The Sun Gate connects with the Sun Temple in the city below creating a direct path the Sun’s rays align with during certain time periods in the year. The day started with some rain, but once we started the trail it stopped, supporting our climb. But this day was a mystical contrast to yesterday’s clear skies, with a lot of mist rolling in and out and covering much of the city at times – quite magickal! It was nice to get away from the people into an immersion of nature silence, and once again our timing was perfect having just a few people ascending with us, but of which two were connected to us. It was more jungle along the trail and we saw so many different things like large spiders, tons of butterfly varieties, birds, centipede, multitude of flowers (especially different orchids) and dense little jungle niches off the side. On the way, Aymey got a butterfly on her nose and at the top Christopher got one on his foot! All three of us were being greeted by our ancestors. The two that traveled up with us were an older Argentinian couple that didn’t really speak English, but were spiritually conscious. Along the way my camera stopped working and would continue to be as such on and off when it chose to for the rest of the journey. It felt connected with my energy amplifying and shifting. As we were getting close to the top suddenly these giant stunning butterflies appeared. They were iridescent white with iridescent blue underneath their wings…never seen anything so magickal. They would float by close, but never stopped for us to capture on film. They felt to be greeting us. And when we were able to see our destination – the Sun Gate Temple itself – a hummingbird appeared on a branch below it, sitting there peacefully as a symbol for us and in greeting – messenger of the Gods indeed and of the Cosmic and Etheric Essence. We first individually connected with the temple on our own. I was guided to stand center of the inner temple area facing out toward the valley below. I had so many visions, one after another come at me here, endlessly it seemed. First, a large being stood straddling both sides of the stone walls before me…very strong..huge…holding a staff and wearing a headdress. Seemed to be a guardian. Then, many beings – Gods/Goddesses, Priests/Priestesses appeared. One wore what seemed like metal armor all over including its headdress of silver and gold that made a bird, but it was alive. This live, metal bird being/God was so clear and I realized that it was not wearing armor at all, but in fact it WAS the metal bird. The Sun Star appeared at center so bright and brilliant coming into me and I remember the stones around me came alive into stone statues that moved…one as a Condor and another as a Puma/Jaguar. I was peering through me, but I was me from another time surrounded by these guardians and then the Condor was screeching and looked back at me and then I got on its back and we flew over the valley. Then I was back again to the Sun Star portal and ancient ones/beings were coming toward me from the portal that felt like a gateway. Then a large face appeared in it with outstretched hands that reached out to cradle my face in them, feeling welcoming and inviting, as well as honoring. Then I went into the Star Light and I open my eyes feeling no more visions to come. There is much more than I write in my visions, but these are what remain with me. I do remember getting the message “Shine”. After this I moved to the front ledge of the temple site to the left of Amaru. Aymey was to his right and Christopher joined in between them. The two Argentinians stood behind us. The woman behind me and the man behind Christopher. They joined us in our spiritual ceremony led by Amaru, chanting, sounding, flute…and as we did the mist that covered the city below us, parted and opened and then closed again when we were done. This happened also when I first got to the ledge and was singing with Amaru. We did a healing meditation for self, those dear to us, and the collective, and as we finished a large group of people were just arriving up on the top. Until then we had created a peaceful serenity. So, we knew the work was done, it was time to descend, and the opening had been created and supported once again for the work. On the way down Aymey and Christopher felt presences with us following us down. They channeled that it was a woman and her husband and child from long ago. She had been trapped energetically here and with our work and presence, had been released to be with her family. She was thanking us. She also shared with Aymey that they had all been waiting for the Three that arrive, led by a Shaman. I got major chills when I heard this, knowing the significance on a soul level. The large iridescent white and blue butterflies showed up on our descent down and once more right before we got on the bus to return. We all noted how no one else seemed to notice these butterflies or make mention of them at all, which was odd to us since they were so beautiful, and yet not surprising. Hearts and triangles/pyramids continued showing up for us. We saw many heart stones and on the way down from the temple I found an amazing OM symbol naturally created from some soft twig like material on a rock in front of me. You can see it clearly here. Signs were all around for those with eyes and hearts to see. The rain also gently started up once again as we were descending. Perfect for that cleansing freshness. We then made our way to the city to explore a few key areas Amaru had intended for us. We explored the Sun Temple with Royal rooms, Condor Temple, and cave temple areas that were very deep with energy. We also saw sacred baths used for purifying before ceremonies. It is then that I saw the triangle portal entrance that I mentioned seeing in my vision the other day, here in physical form. Apparently it invites into another dimension and has a hidden labyrinth underground where 2 men were lost in years back that were exploring it. The others with them came out running and they never found the men and felt it better to shut up the hole so no one else would be lost to what was beneath there. The Sun Temple had windows directly linked to the sun beam from the Sun Gate we’d come from and inside was an inner Sun Dial that represented the inner Sun/Illumination within us rather than the outer Sun Dial/Light we’d seen the day before. I found our visiting all of the Sun Temples this time for me, at Machu Picchu, to be like a full circle integration since the last time I was there we had journeyed down to the Moon Temple. We then returned to town and had lunch, did a little market exploring and got on our train back to Cusco. Both ways we enjoyed the Inca Tea of eucalyptus, coca, and mint – and as you can see, our cups to hold them in gave sentiment to our journey “A Mystic Experience.” One side note: I saw a lot of little poops all over Machu Picchu and had joked to Christopher they were from magickal rabbits. Well, in fact I was right, as Amaru said that they were in fact from Andean wild rabbits. 🙂 My bunny loves were making their mark and leaving trails in my journeys once again. They had even shown up in the form of juice names on a menu we came across near the beginning of our journey.
Day 7 – 3/17/15: Today we woke and after breakfast were off on our bus ride from Cusco to Puno and the Sacred Lake Region of the Incas, stopping along the way at sites of interest. We visited two museums, a Church like Sistine Chapel inside that was very ornate and to me, almost gaudy. But at the first museum with Ancient Lithic culture we saw an extraterrestrial skull that had been found. It was displayed next to a human skull. We also saw the elongated human skulls, as the ancient people used to try to mimic extraterrestrials they encountered and engaged with, seeing them as Gods and that this was the ideal form to emulate. You know the difference between human and extraterrestrial skulls because the human skulls have seven parts and extraterrestrial one has three parts. We also saw some very cool spiral symbols carved in rock and one that was exactly like the Tibetan Fire Serpent in Reiki. We explored Rajchi – Temple of Huiracocha – where we came upon more lovely flowers, a frog friend that had made a comfy home on a traveler we came across, and a large bumble bee on a yellow flower that foreshadowed a vision I would see later in symbolism from a ceremonial meditation. Then enjoyed a beautiful buffet we loaded up on overlooking amazing grounds with Alpaca in the foreground and waterfalls in the background. Then we ascended to the highest point of our journey at the plateau of 14,222 feet in elevation. This area is between the basin of Lake Titicaca and the Amazon. Lake Titicaca is at 12,500 feet – our next destination. We had to divert around Juliaca because of a demonstration going on that was closing off the roads and for precautions of safety was necessary to avoid. So this added an hour and a half to our full day drive, but beautiful landscapes and scenic views were abound. The demonstration was about people refusing to pay taxes to use roads the government decided to build that they didn’t want. They were also unhappy with polution of the river by mining companies, which they had so far been able to have one shut down with their efforts. Goes to show you the power of the people when they stand together in the truth of their sovereignty. Together we used our energy again when we hit a block at a different route the bus driver took and our path was open. We managed to cross a flooded area of the road safely too with our energetic focus. Adventures! We arrived in time to see the lights glistening on Lake Titicaca and settled in before a lovely dinner. Our hotel was The Royal Inn. 😉
Day 8 – 3/18/15: Got a good 8 hour sleep – first really so far – and after breakfast we journeyed to the local Puno market to purchase food for our picnic offering lunch and ceremony. Then we were off to the Dimensional Door & Forest – Amaru Muru. Aymey’s shoes had mirrored mine from my first trip to Machu Picchu, having the sole detach. And I too experienced this again on this trip. We purchased some glue to fix it when on the island. Last time I had it fixed on Machu Picchu and this time on Lake Titicaca. 🙂 We picked up bread, fruit, avocado, coconut water, coca leaves, matches, salt, tomatoes, oregano, ginger, lemons, flowers, water. The market was amazing in all its array of colors and variety of fruits and vegetables and everyone was so sweet. Then we were off to our sacred destination. The van seat in front of me had the image of a Dragon and Faery on it, which I thought was synchronous. When we arrived at the site it had been raining, but we waited in the van a few minutes and sent energy to it together and the sky opened and the rain stopped for the entire time we were there. We went to the Door/Dimensional Gateway and set up for our ceremony with crystal and sacred offering altar. On this journey I had been guided to only take my new giant Herkimer Diamond, which was part of every ceremony and acted as the central generator of the grids. It is a Record Keeper with many Rainbows and has some mirroring qualities to an Elestial, but is a powerful Herkimer. This was a very potent ceremony for me – one of my very favorite sites in Peru. On the first day I had shown Amaru this crystal and he asked its name. I said I hadn’t gotten it yet, but very shortly after that, her name came to me – Soriah. At Amaru Muru I told Amaru its name and he said the meaning of this was Mother of the Inner Light. When I looked it up I found that it is a celestial name having an Arabic origin that means “Bright Starlight – the Pleiades”. I also found this interesting meaning by Seven Reflections: Soriah. Amaru chanted and drummed as we meditated. First thing I saw was giant beings come to life from the stones. Some were Stone Beings and others Crystal Beings. They reminded me of the Stone Being in the NeverEnding Story. The Crystal Being had a head like a Crystal Shard like the Shard in the Dark Crystal. They were like Guardians to the portal but also welcoming us/me. Then a four pointed star creating a diamond effect appeared that was a portal in silver with pale yellow at the center in an oval shape. At first seemed like a crystal or stone, but upon further glance it was actually not dense but gaseous and swirling. Then a large Tibetan Magician emerged. This portal is very connected to Tibet, as is the energy of the site, even having a rock that is clearly a Buddha. All the rocks are naturally formed into beings and symbols – similar to Sedona in this way. But the Tibetan Magician I saw was ancient and came in very clear with very long white hair, beard, mustache, and brows, wearing an icy blue robe and taller hat with silvery adornments. He kept coming toward me and lingering in gaze. Seemed other beings came too, but can’t remember. Then saw myself in a robe and headdress – ancient – with hands up to the Light coming upon me. An elephant appeared with golden trunk, saw a starlight bright coming closer and hit me in the 3rd eye gently lodging. This day I was wearing my rabbit sweatshirt that said “Never underestimate the power of a woman with a rabbit” and has a white rabbit, and at the end of my visions a white rabbit in fact appeared. And then the Gateway showed up as a triangle of light with inner dimensions. After our meditation ceremony we each one by one went up to the three openings in the Doorway and invoked and received energies. We faced in and out, and did what ever came to us naturally to do. Interestingly, we all felt to do sound at the center main portal. This was huge for me and something deep, strong and with force came through me that felt ancient as I faced the Doorway. After, Amaru hugged us individually and I remember him being teared up when I approached him. Something activated strongly when I did this and we both felt it. So much so, when I returned to my seat supporting Christopher with his turn, I couldn’t stop shaking until he had also returned to join us. I shook uncontrollably and was breathing out with release. The only other time I can remember similar was in Egypt. Although this wasn’t as intense or long in duration, it was definitely a Kundalini activation just the same. Powerful! I was so ready to step into this. After our ceremony we climbed to a level place with a natural stone table and chairs where we would have our lunch offering. On the way here we stopped by a few local women selling offerings they had found. I purchased two stones that were Quartz with Calcite. We had an amazingly yummy lunch that was to be as a collective offering eating mindfully of those without and sharing the abundance with all. We then made large closed and open-faced sandwiches of fresh bread with tomato, avocado, ginger, salt, oregano, and lemon juice. YUMM! We finished off with grenadine as dessert and coconut water. Two hawks screeched overhead as we ate in reverence. We then went to another location at this site for our next closing ceremony working with all of the elements at a natural altar rock that had 10 small pools of water on it. One larger and the others smaller. The only thing I remember seeing was a large Cobra head and after we opened our eyes there were two heart clouds in the sky. One large one with a pyramid hole in the middle and the other smaller one with a spiral. At the end we offered the flowers we had picked up in the market and then we were each told to follow our guidance to take our 3 coca leaves we were holding to offer them at a sacred place any where that called to us. I was called to climb higher and so I did. I made my way up a steeper area and stood on a rock doing my own offering and intentions to the collective that I would in turn give to receive and the wind blew strong as I stood there. At the end I was moved to say “I’m ready to go”. Directly after I stepped off the rock I immediately noticed 2 Hawk feathers on the ground before me that I knew were offerings to me. And then two Hawks flew overhead. It was amazing. Another beautiful day with butterflies all around and two bright caterpillars. I held one butterfly with an injured wing to give it extra energy and life. After this powerful experience we enjoyed a lighter experience of laughter and joy at the Temple of Fertility where there are many mushroom stone sculptures (appearing like Phalluses) and one large Phallus sculpture at the center also encapsulating the female energy as well. We laughed so hard as we took funny photos. No one leaves this little temple without being tickled giddy. As we left we took a look at the items offered by the locals and I was surprised to meet a 17 year old girl here that shared my exact name in pronunciation and spelling, which is not a common name in Peru. So we took a photo together, and then we made our way back to town to explore the city streets/shops and enjoyed dinner before bed.
Day 9 – 3/19/15: This morning we traveled by Tuk Tuk – three-wheeled little mobiles that one guy powers by pedaling like a bike. We loaded our bags and ourselves and off we went to the harbor to catch our boat to Amantani Island, where we were serenaded by music Amaru joined in on to kick off our lake journey. Lake Titicaca means Puma of the Stones or Gray Puma. We first stopped at the Floating Islands (or Reed Islands) of the Uros people. We spent a lot of time immersing with them on one of the islands – Santa Maria – which was really fantastic. The people are passive and peaceful, fleeing from confrontations long ago to live a life of harmony. They basically work around the clock cultivating their life and their little islands, fixing them constantly from wear and tear of sun and the elements. Every two weeks they have to redo their homes. They relay reeds on their island anew as well. The islands float on roots of reeds bound together that act like corks. There are 87 islands total, each with up to 10 families per island. They have one president for the entire community and one president per island. The main president is elected and has a term of 3-4 years. The individual presidents have 1 year terms. So everyone gets a chance to run things. Everything is shared on the islands in responsibility and in abundance. Money is distributed equally, as well as food. Children are raised by all families. There are separate islands for schools and banks. They have some small boats with motors to get to Puno for trade, but otherwise they do everything on their islands. They also now have solar energy, which was gifted to them by an Asian businessman. They eat fish, fried bread, potatoes, and even the white part of the reeds. They boil water from the lake because it is clean enough and fresh with only a very tiny portion of salt in it. When we arrived, one woman took us each into their homes to share their lives. The woman who took Christopher and I in was named Marie – like me again. She also offered to dress us up in their local clothing, which we were excited to receive. In exchange for all the hospitality we purchased some of their handmade items and also gifted them the toys we had brought. I gave all of mine to the people on this island to distribute. The slinkies from Aymey were a hit and they loved my stuffed animals – one little girl got the purple dragon 🙂 We were there witnessing their normal daily routines…cooking, making their reed boats, etc. Their two sources of income are fish and tourism. The little girls were sweet – one pulling on my shirt to get my attention…another was playing with Aymey in her lap placing stickers on her skin. Amaru was overwhelmed with love and tears on the island, as he has such a reverence for these people and his roots and it was easy to understand, as we were all sad to leave. These people remind us of our ancient ways, who we really are at heart, and the simplicity and beauty of natural harmony at work, shared with Terra and each other. We left, sharing lots of hugs and kisses with everyone and then continued our boat ride to Amantani – the Island of Love. We had a long climb up to our home for the next two nights, but arrived at our beautiful accommodations greeted by the family that would care for us. We received an amazing spread of fresh veggies (corn, giant fava beans, broccoli, carrots, potatoes, and rice), guacamole, quinoa and veggie soup, bread and teas. Wow! It was a lot, but so good! We finished off with some papaya and then all went to our rooms to rest for a couple of hours before sunset. I was loving the high altitudes so felt invigorated. I was so grateful Amaru gifted me his usual room he gets when staying here, which was a large room overlooking the Lake with nearly 360 degree views. The room had a large front area perfect for ceremonies, which we would use the next day. I was so grateful. After our rest, Amaru, Christopher and I walked up the hill for the sunset. Aymey remained to rest, as the altitude was creating the need for adjustment for her. We watched the stars and sunset, focusing on the aura of the trees and Earth. Then returned for dinner of veggie soup and garlic bread with tea and conversation. Our days were full with communing and sharing. Amaru was grateful to have like-minded souls to be able to talk about everything with. The evening was filled with clear stars abound. I provided a short Reiki session to both Aymey and Christopher this evening to help them adjust with things they were experiencing either with altitude or a food eaten, and to help balance things more. Then nighty night time.
Day 10 – 3/20/15 Our Day of Assimilation and Comprehensive Preparation in the Path of the Light for the Equinox: I was happy to hear that both Aymey and Christopher were feeling better. The night was a wild one in terms of a major thunder, lightning and rain storm coming down. It was also the first night I remembered my dream clearly while here. Interesting that in Iceland and Peru, while I was dreaming a lot and sometimes vaguely remembered something, I wasn’t remembering clearly and extensively like I normally do until this night. I had an important and symbolic dream that the four of us were doing an initiation/activation ceremony, as we’ve been doing, but it was on a much larger scale – interestingly synchronous since this day we’d be engaging in our Equinox ceremony. We had a fifth person with us, however. We each had done our part, provided our key codes, and it was then time for this fifth person to do theirs. But they were hesitant and reluctant to do so. Finally he said, “OK,” and added his “key code” to the mix. He stated out loud a sequence of 6 numbers that activated the finalization. The very instant this took place, in conscious life a very loud thunder hit and the storm started that night, fully bringing all my awareness into awake state, although the experience was all seamless. As I talked to Amaru about this the next morning we realized that this fifth person represented humanity, or the collective. In my dream he appeared Asian (or a mixture of ethnicities), but he was like the fifth element needed to put into place things. Interestingly, I’ve been on other trips, including the 12/21/12 Bimini one, where humanity/the collective was not ready for some of what we were activating/opening. So we needed to wait for more alignment that would take more time. However, in my dream, humanity/the collective WAS ready. Although somewhat hesitant, did come through and met with us in partnership. This was huge in my opinion! And the storm activating directly after was potent indeed. Big stuff! In the morning I noticed one of my windows slightly opened, after I’d been awake a while. I’d closed all of them in the night and this one wasn’t open when I first woke up. So I went over to it and on the sill inside I find a folded up piece of paper with writing on it. The paper said “This way to open” with an arrow pointing to the right and then a heart with the word “thanks”. I asked around to everyone, but no one had left it on my window. Where it came from I can only imagine, but it felt connected to my dream somehow and was a message of some sort. I saved it in my journal. Was it pointing up the hill, as that’s where it was placed – pointing to our location of our last ceremony on the island to come? Or was it something beyond this trip in general? Hmmmm….The rain continued hard that morning, but we felt it was perfect and fine, as we had already made plans to have our Equinox/New SuperMoon/Total Solar Eclipse ceremony in my room overlooking Lake Titicaca. So after breakfast of yummy pancakes and fruit with Amaru’s special green tea mixture, we set up our very powerful altar grid and we each took our places at the four corners. This ceremony lasted until lunch and as you can imagine…once it was done, the skies opened to blue sunny light! Our ceremony was nothing short of amazing again and very powerful. I mostly just felt peace and expansiveness as Amaru lead the ceremony chanting, meditations, and then we all together created music and sound – Aymey and I had purchased rattles on the Floating Island – Christopher and I had also purchased flutes in Cusco. The only visions I remember were that of what to me was Pachamama symbolized in a large, voluptuous, Inca-looking ancient woman with animals around her, and then light and Cosmic beings. One of them held a diamond of light in its hand and placed it in my 3rd eye. Then at the end of the ceremony I remember seeing a giant gold ring with a giant gold bumblebee on it that was being presented to me. Amaru then presented the platform for me to share concluding and supportive words to everyone for our journey thus far and what to take away from all of it. At the end Amaru gifted us the ceremonial head pieces (that were his) he’d placed upon us for the ceremony – very special. And after, I presented Amaru with the Herkimer Diamond and Aqua Aura Quartz pendant that was mine, as a gift to him to wear in his special ceremonies. After we cleared out of the room, Christopher offered to do an energetic clearing for my cough with me. So we did that and then enjoyed lunch before we would head off to our sacred site on pilgrimage with sunny blue skies! The rain stopped, as our ceremony ended. Our pilgrimage took us around half the island to find a very special altar place no one knows of that isn’t local to the island. We walked through the terraced hills on the stone path and off-path when the water had covered the path. We also walked the pebbled beach, finding many symbolic stones. We were so absorbed we passed the altar, but knew it was perfect, as we found special things along the way. So we made our way back for a very powerful ceremony at the altar overlooking the Lake and a big initiation. I first initiated Christopher and Aymey with Reiki. Christopher received his Reiki 1. Amaru and I felt this to be important to link us all in the energy, since the rest of us were Reiki attuned, but also to raise vibrations to receive his initiation from Amaru after. I gave both Amaru and Aymey Reiki 3 initiation attunements, however, I was guided to initiate them with a special Cosmic activation that channeled through, which was very powerful, and something I haven’t done or gifted anyone before. I did Aymey first then Amaru later. Amaru placed a colored square cloth of 7×7 squares = 49 around my shoulders for this, like a little cape. After this, Amaru then initiated us with the Solar Path and taught us 3 symbols we were to memorize for now only, and receive energetically. They are imprinted within us, as the Reiki symbols are and I easily memorized them to this day. He will provide more thorough explanations to us in the days to come, but for now the activation was necessary and we have learned to use them already by what he briefly shared. The essence was most important, as always. This was all very powerful and connected us, as well as ignited something on a very large scale beyond us. As I was giving Amaru his initiation, Christopher buried a crystal grid in the ground that he had been guided to do that would link with another grid he buried in Arkansas to be part of the Earth grid. The next day I received that what we’d done and the grid he placed had all activated the Crystal that resides beneath Lake Titicaca. After our initiations, we walked back to our home, but it was sunset, so most of our walk was in the dark and starlight. It was definitely part of the initiation to use our inner light now and inner Sun to light the way and actually, the path was easier going back than coming, as a new path was created for us that we didn’t take before! We had a great dinner, and off to bed early, as we had a very early rising for our concluding island ceremony.
Day 11 – 3/21/15: We rose at 3:30 am this morning in the dark and starlight in order to ascend to our destination by sunrise for our ceremony of Solar Initiation. Throughout the night it rained even harder than the previous night, and when we woke we discovered hail piles all around, like mounds of ice pebbles everywhere. The weird thing is that the hail storm started right when I was dreaming something else this night that felt significant, yet this time I didn’t remember the dream like the previous night. We bundled up in our layers and were given heavy, thick ponchos to keep us warm for our hike up to the Temple of Pachatata. We climbed at least 1000 feet higher, taking us to 13,500+ feet elevation. Our intent was to connect with our inner Sun and give reverence to the Sun. We began our walk at 4:00 am after having tea to warm us. As we were reaching the temple, the Sun was rising and Amaru then set up for our ceremony with fire and inner visions. The light and Sun danced with us, creating amazing illuminations all around and within each of us (seen in the individual photos of us here) – at times engulfing us (as you can see in one photo where I appear like a Sunlit headless horseman). We each had sacred time with the fire, as Amaru blessed and activated along with our offerings. This was a very sacred and powerful experience, still giving me chills now to reflect and write about it, as the feelings flow through me. And we then concluded with music we played on our instruments, while we danced in celebration, which all brought out the Sun, as well as a Hawk that hovered intentfully right above and in front of us between us and the Sun as Amaru was concluding ceremony. A Puma paw glowed in the water ahead of us after our ceremony and the Sun glowed each time we invoked it. After, we descended for a delicious breakfast – everything looking so vibrant, freshly new, and beautiful, which this whole journey in fact had changed for us and how we see things. We packed up to get our boat back to Puno. We were all sad to leave our island home and sanctuary, and these gentle people. Our journey across the waters was mostly silent and inward, as we sat at the back of the boat receiving the Sun’s rays. We rested and integrated the journey thus far and I felt the Lake’s giant Crystal activated. We were feeling the sun inside and out. Upon arrival, we settled into our hotel, had lunch, shopped, and then packed before our dinner and a good night’s sleep.
Day 12 – 3/22/15: Our last day together began with breakfast and then off to our last sacred site to do a closing meditation, overlooking water at the Temple of Immortality – Sillustani. We did this individually and quietly within ourselves to give gratitude and honor, as well as celebration for the journey we shared, and the journey yet to come. I only felt peace within this time and no visions except a profile of a Hawk that turned into a Condor, but I communicated a lot from within my heart and out to all in reciprocation to all I’d received. After we completed our individual time, we joined together with Amaru and he initiated us in a diamond formation to channel the Cosmic Light. We were shown how to move the energy, again only needing to remember the basic essence of what we were experiencing and would receive further what we needed when the time unfolded divinely. I felt incredible heat through my core when doing this. Upon completion and a group hug, we always shared, we descended the temple grounds back to our van. Along the way I saw my first live rabbit – a wild Andean one that descends from ancient times. I was so moved by this symbolism and physical manifestation on our very last day, concluding our very last ceremony together, as rabbits are my magickal familiars. I knew Nestor was shining down upon me with her love and support, as well as that Joy and Cosmo had been with me all along…everything was in Divine order, was being supported, and was coming to full circle closure. All I had been guided to do was complete and honored. I was grateful both to all of my soul family that had supported this, but also to myself for embracing the call. This was very magickal and special to me and I captured photos of the rabbit that showed up. The path to and from this site was also lined with yellow flowers and represented to me the yellow brick road like in The Wizard of Oz, which Aymey also reiterated. It spoke to how we always search for the power or some outside source/wizard/magick, but all along we were the power/wizard/true magicians and could have and do all we needed and wanted at any time we recognize and embody that truth fully. That is the true magick. And that is one of the things I took away from this trip. Not needing anything external, but knowing I have all that I need within me. Interestingly, upon return home two of my crystal friends (the largest I have ever had) were also going away to their new home and mom – one of which was my giant Amethyst Rabbit. Again, everything is within us/me, and so the connections and magick are always there to experience when ever we want, regardless of what we think we have or don’t. We made our way to the airport and shared our “see you soons” rather than goodbye with Amaru, which still tugged at the heart, as we parted ways to take our flight back to Lima and he would take a bus to his home in Arequipa. We spent the rest of the day driven around in Lima to bide time until our late night flights back home, having lunch, exploring the beach and beach area, as well as the city center. It was Chistopher’s first Pacific ocean sunset and touching his feet in these powerful waters, so we had to capture that first moment indeed. Some card games and dinner saw us through our last hours and then it was I who left first this time (I had arrived last at onset) and I settled in on my flights for a good night’s rest until home. We know we will all be called again together for further work when the time aligns.
We had all been gifted protective, empowering bracelets with seeds from the Amazon Jungle from Oscar, our first driver who also greeted us upon arrival into Peru. These united our energy daily, as we wore them throughout our journey together and like with everything, but mostly our hearts, will deepen the continued connection.
