I have just returned from Uluru , the heart and song of this timeless land.
Kata Tjuta National Park includes both Uluru and another unique rock feature, Kata Tjuta, which used to be known as the Olgas. Kata Tjuta are about 50km away from Uluru, and are part of the same original mountain range.
Both Uluru and Kata Tjuta are sacred for the Aboriginal people of the area. Ancient Aboriginal paintings can be seen in caves in Uluru. These paintings tell the story of Dreamtime, the Aboriginal story of how the world was formed. Uluru is now listed as a World Heritage site, recognising its importance and uniqueness.
Uluru is often called a monolith, but is in fact an inselberg, which is a hard rock remainder of a mountain after the softer part has eroded away. An inselberg is an isolated hill or small mountain that stands out from a surrounding flat plain. The word means 'island mountain'.
Uluru is on a dry desert plain in the Northern Territory. It is 2.4km (1.5 miles) long and 1.6km (1 mile) wide and rises up about 348 metres above the surrounding land. It covers 3.33 square km (1.29 square miles) of land. It extends deep below the ground surface, exactly how far is not known. About 500 million years ago it was part of the ocean floor.
One story I found amazing was that of the Woma Python: Kuniya the shapeshifter ~ Creation story below, as told by a Anangu grandmother/elder.
I will never forget the time I spent there..The stories, the people and the ancient land. The pics will never do justice to such a amazing place. The Stars..well don't even get me started on that!
I saw Sirius , Pleiades , Jupiter and her 4 moons..she has many more..but four were across the face in perfect alignment..When I was gazing at Orions belt though a you beaut supa dupa telescope , I saw a shooting star :) Yep Magical
I sat at Kata Tjuta and breathed in and out ~ felt the ancient energy of long ago. I found out later, this land is a major Chakra of the earth
"Chakra Three: Uluru and Kata Tjuta These twin sites in the Northern Territory, Australia, comprise the world “solar plexus” chakra. Uluru, formerly known as Ayers Rock, is the more famous of the two. This large red monolith is, along with the Sydney Opera House, an icon of the smallest continent. Katatjuta, also called The Olgas, is equally impressive. Rather than one monolith, this site consists of a large number of massive red stones.
The global function of this chakra is to maintain the vitality of the Earth, and all living species. In the future, if there is a world art of immortal health, then the wisdom of this art will be gained from Chakra Three in central Australia. This wisdom is delivered to the rest of the world via the ley artery, the Rainbow Snake.
The Rainbow Serpent travels the path of life. It arises from deep beneath the surface of the Earth, and first emerges at Uluru. The Uluru magick is then transmitted to Katatjuta via a special song line which exits Uluru on its western side from the cave of the hare wallaby, Mala Puta. Once in the natural cathedral of Katatjuta, the universal vitality force is shaped into the various designs suited to the many different species of life on Earth. After the “packaging” of solar plexus energies, in the Valley of the Winds, the Rainbow Serpent leaves this area from the large heart-shaped stone, Ngunngarra (scarlet Fuchsia),and travels on to Bali.
Chakra Two energies from Lake Titicaca are directly sent to Chakra Three – Uluru and Katatjuta – via the world ley artery, the Rainbow Serpent, which crosses the South Pacific Ocean, sweeps underneath New Zealand, and enters the Australian mainland at Wilson’s Promontory.
In the ancient creation legends of “Dreamtime”, there is a story about a great ritual which has yet to be completed at Uluru. This ritual was meant to complete the great plan of the earth spirit. When the ritual is complete, then perfection will spread throughout the world, and death will disappear from all species. This event is symbolized by a great pole, or cosmic umbilical cord, which is destined to unite the Sun with the Earth – heaven with earth. It is predicted that this cord begins to function in 2020 AD, at the time of the rare Saturn-Pluto conjunction."
Mystical and magical..and if you can ever get there..just do it ♥
This morning I woke up with a Muay Thai fighter image in my head. Yes ,Very weird even for me!
I started reflecting back on my time in Thailand last year and how much I enjoyed it.
I was also reminded of when I got my tattoo. Now I didn't get it the traditional way by a Monk with bamboo.
I looked around until I found a Nice Tattoo shop with a lovely Vibe. I had no idea what Tattoo I was getting..I was just getting one!
I had never seen the SaK Yant Traditional Tattoos before either,( apart from Angelina Jolie ).
The Thai people also call them, Temple tattoos. I found this out much later.
But When I did Whoa! The Imagery was amazing! The Lines, The spirals , Everything!
I was looking through the book and this one Jumped up and smacked me in the head..I knew 150 % this was the one for me. Fast forward to a day before I'm leaving..Tattoo Time!! Yay!
I layed on the bed to get Tattooed, Thoughts running through my head ..I hope he doesnt stuff it up, being the most prevalent. Tong was the tattooist and was one of the most chilled and relaxed dudes I have ever met, His energy was amazing. Very Humble with a inner knowing. He was a practising Buddhist . What happened next can only be described as a mystical experience . The minute he started Tattooing.. I was off, tripping the light fantastic..Colours washed over me , I can't even tell where I went. It was that intense.
The feeling and Imagery is something I shall never forget. I had no pain, didn't even feel it..true story. 3 hours on the table, felt like 15 mins. I went so deep into another world, That my brain was trying to compute what was happening. Then I just released and went with the Flow. Time had no meaning,I thought I was sleeping at one stage..
It took me half and hour to come back to "normal" after the Tattoo had finished. I couldn't speak properly, I couldn't see properly ..I had to just sit and let it all integrate into my being.
I have many Tattoos and have never experienced anything like that, Ever!
I tried to explain to Tong what had happened, he just smiled and said..Ahhh Very, Very good! He then wrote something down for me.. "Look when you get home" he was so happy, as I was.
I did look up the words he had given me , when I got back to Melbourne:
this is what it means:
"One phenomenon that is apparently unexplainable about Yant tattoo is ‘Khong Khuen’, a kind of possession, where the tattooee receives the tattoo of the Himapant animal and upon receiving the ‘Kataa’ (Mantra) blown into his tattoo from the Monk, he then becomes taken over by the spirit of the Himapant animal he received as a tattoo.
I have seen this phenomenon many times, and find it to be unexplainable.Some people may fake it i am sure, but some of the cases i have seen are undoubtedly authentic. The subject is completely innocent to what happened when he was in trance.
Thais believe that the Himapant animals can rise to protect you in times of danger..but i also believe that they can rise up if you behave wrongly and do not respect the rules of wearing a Yant tattoo.
Anyone wishing to see this phenomenon should visit the Temple on ‘Master Day’ where thousands of disciples throng to pay respects to the deceased Master, Hlwong Por Phern."
Yeah man , couldnt have faked it if I tried! I had no Idea about this prior.
But sure does explain what happened on that Table. Trance: Definitely, Unexplainable: Hell yes. Mystical : Bloody Oath .
I Just recently saw a Psychic medium. It was a Fabulous Reading too. Unbeknownst to her I had been Journeying the previous night in sacred space with a trusted friend. And saw a gaping hole in my solar plexus. Attached at the other end by a toxic relationship. The cords looked like a tree trunk. I was gobsmacked.
1 .That I had let it happen. 2 I gave my power away
I had been able to see this for other people, but never really for myself. What I saw was a big wake up call. The Fact that the Psychic saw it too, was more confirmation for me. In all her years , she had never seen anything like it, she exclaimed! In all my years I’d never seen anything like it either! Epic is a word that comes to mind. Imagine The Imagery of what basically looked like tree trunk going through my stomach..yeah Epic!
I did some healing around it and forgave the person and myself.
But I had done it. I gave my power away to a person that obviously feeds off it. I had let them feed off me. WTF was I thinking? It took 2 years for the realisation of this to come to a head. I am not blaming it all on this person. I have to take responsibility for my own actions as well. Tinged with anger and a sadness..this goes back eons..can anyone say past life?
Fear and control issues make people do silly things. Either consciously or unconsciously . I got a universal slap in the head..Pay attention!
I had been hearing the words in my head”take your power back” hmmm I’m a bit slow. Since I have, my creative force has returned 3 fold. My doubts have vanished, and I feel clear and present. Its quite obvious that the solar is the powerhouse of confidence, shine and creative force. Never let anyone take it. Lesson learned
“Dare to Be
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you've done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –
At all times, Dare to be!”

Giddy UP !!
How is everyone faring post Chinese New Year?
I went to a water blessing ,shamanic healing ceremony last night ~Held by the fabulous Julia & Tony from Scared Familiar Such strong Medicine! All that were present were blissed & blessed with their amazing Gift. I am fortunate to count Julia & Tony as my friends. Their innate wisdom and medicine gift they have to share is truly magical. Its a honour to be part of their Clan.
If you have never experienced Sacred Familiar's work. I encourage you to pop on over and have a look at the website. (Click on Link to go to website)
The last 2 years featured quite strongly in the journey for me :deep water energy ,combined with the farewell of the water snake who graciously made a appearance and farewelled us gently and beautifully. The lessons and gifts she brought were amazing and her wisdom was one of release, rebirthing and honoring the process. Manifestations of the past dissipated as the wise woman
An Cailleach helped with the final stage's of the journey.
We welcomed in the new with Love and grace in our hearts, and sent it back out to complete the circle.
How much I released is anyones guess. I also had insight to how much power we inadvertently give away to people and situations. It was a bit of wake up call for me to realise that I had also been feeding into "power" games in certain areas. No judgment , it is was it was..past tense. I am full of gratitude for seeing this clearly and in perspective .
As we release the last of the Water Snake lessons, don't be too hard on yourself..It may not be pretty or even nice. But definitely worth going into the bottomless well and finding the peace that resides within, once you integrate your truth, honesty and integrity :PRICELESS.
Breaking free :)
Hail & Welcome The Year of the Horse !
Shining & Rocking On
