Dear Disciples of the Light,
The Spiritual Journey, which took place from Friday the 9th March
to Monday 12th March, was a great success.
On Friday we journeyed to the Augrabies Lodge (2km from the falls),
where we were given very comfortable, well-appointed, air-conditioned
rooms. The Lodge has a lovely ambience and has a good selection
of meals to choose from to suit all appetites.
The next morning we met at the National Park and found the ideal
spot on a platform right above the main waterfall. We were blessed
with a moderate temperature and a light breeze during our meditation
and activation (usually you can fry an egg on the rocks by 9am).
We started the process at 10am to align with the date of the 10th.
Afterwards, we dispersed and spent a few pleasant hours walking
around the falls and exploring the reserve, then back to the Lodge
for a refreshing shower and rest before dinner.
Sunday morning we set off to Kakamas and visited the Pienk Paleis
(now called Die Pienk Stal) where we bought some lovely rose quartz
to take home with us. I bought 18 medium pieces for a total of R20
and 2 big pieces for R10 – really good value! From there we
went to Witsand and checked into the chalets. Each chalet is set
apart in its own space so you feel as though you are deep in the
Kalahari bush. Round the chalet were lots of squirrels, meercats
and a few monkeys. Our chalet had a waterhole at which the buck
drink in the early mornings.
After settling into the chalet, we went to the sand dunes on the
back of a bakkie belonging to Cheryl Jacobs & her family, who
are well acquainted with the area. Cheryl’s son and daughter
moved the sand with their arms and the sand made an unmistakable
growling sound of a lion. They call it a roar but as the sand was
wet from the day before, we weren’t able to get it really
loud. However, we were all amazed at what we heard. I expected a
sort of sea sound but not at all! It was a low growl!
We formed a circle at the foot of the dunes and shared a visualization
and then spent a good hour climbing the dunes and playing in the
sand. It was wonderful! One of our group is in his mid seventies
and he climbed the highest dunes twice without a problem! And they
were steep! The next day none of us had any stiffness or discomfort
from the exercise.
After the dune experience, we returned to the chalets and had a
refreshing swim in the pool and then spent a lovely evening under
the stars munching on delicious food lovingly supplied by Cheryl,
Sharon and their families.
Monday morning we said goodbye to two of our group and joined Cheryl
in Postmansburg for a wholesome breakfast at a local restaurant.
Due to a few problems with our car, we then went to Kimberley and
while we waited for the car repairs to be done, we went to the Big
Hole and spent a few enjoyable hours looking around at the displays,
film and went into the vault to see the diamonds. The Big Hole is
very similar to Gold Reef City, only not as developed yet.
It was an honour and a privilege to work with such a special group
of people and we are most blessed to be part of such a sacred and
special process as the Instruments of the Light.
I give thanks to Great Spirit, the Kingdoms of Light, the Masters,
Lord Horus and Jacqueline Freemantle, Head of the Alstar Quest,
for all the support, assistance, information, love and blessings.
Love & Light,
