A Labyrinth in Egypt!

walking the labyrinth

Being present in the walk.

From the moment hearing about the Women Gathering for Global Change Conference in Alexandria, Egypt, intuitively, I knew I needed to be there. The whys were not clear at first. They gradually unfolded and completed the understanding after returning home to Mount Shasta.

The conference was sponsored by The Human Foundation of Cairo founded by Dr. Aliaa Rafea and the International Association of Sufism also in Cairo. It was held at the beautiful Bibleoteca Alexandria (The Library of Alexandria)

The whole trip was profound and revealing in so many ways, far beyond visiting the pyramids. Not wanting to make any part less significant than another, telling the stories in a type of context is important to me.

This first step and story began 15 years ago, on September 18, 2001, a week after the world changed forever! During the following week a prophesy within the Mayan Calendar revealed that September 17 – 18, 2001 would be called “The Days of Truth.” Over those 2 days people gathered in every part of the world for prayer and

ceremony for healing and understanding of the events a week earlier.

A collective activation of heart compassion took rise, something that had not been experienced since Princess Diana tragically died in August, 1997. Heart compassion knows no boundaries, race, religion or agenda. We, the collective, united as one heartbeat of compassion and empathy can change everything!

The Unfolding Story    Location: Rocky Mountains, Colorado

After parking my car I headed up the mountains to about 11,000 feet to find the right spot. A glade opened up with a natural circle of stone and trees – the perfect place. Drum in hand I began to beat the sounds, songs and prayers. Simultaneously, outside of Kansas City, my friend Toby Evans, Keeper of the Prairie Labyrinth, was also holding ceremony within the beautiful labyrinth on her land.

Walking, pacing, sitting, standing – the sounds of the drum continued. Sometimes the sounds were off key, other times like a cry – the drum was speaking.  The circle called! Standing in the middle of the circle, slowly turning, the beat continued.

Around and around, turning slowly, images came and went.  Bubbles of spirit energy would rise up and in a fraction of a time burst. The drum beat rejoiced at what was happening. More images of lands in pain, of loss and death. Native lands, Ireland, Bosnia, Germany, Japan, Middle East, Vietnam, South Africa and more all came into view as I turned and turned with the drum beat.

The images changed. Labyrinths began appearing as transparencies above these lands and places. With each turn the labyrinths expanded to eventually be over continents. A labyrinth transparency above each continent – Europe, Asia/Middle East, Africa, North America, South America, Australia and Antarctica.

The turning was getting faster. The drum beats and sounds changed over each land mass as I turned. Dissonance, pain, flat, dead. I kept playing, singing and crying – turning all the time getting faster and faster. Every now and then a change, a shift happened. The sounds evening out. Faster turns, sounds clearing, songs rising.

Suddenly the visions and sounds were clearer, the beat becoming one! Within the labyrinth above each continent a dark energy stream pulling up and out from the lands towards the center OM symbol, moving through the holographic paths to the white bubble above. Light increased until the turns, the beat, the sounds and vision were all ONE – it was the most amazing feeling and sight to witness from within. Then in a moment in time the white bubbles filled with darkness burst and released to the heavens.

The turns automatically slowed, the drum beat softened, my tears flowed so freely and a lightness surrounded the glade.

What I believe I witnessed within the vision and the sound was the honoring and releasing of old earthbound spirit energies, locked in lands and people though time, possibly eons of time. The labyrinth created a portal of safety for release and healing on levels beyond our knowing.

Taking the The Walking for World Peace Labyrinth and the drum to Egypt was the manifestation of a personal vision and desire I have held for many years. To physically take a labyrinth to a place or region experiencing conflict and adversity. To lay it out and allow local people to quietly walk the meditative paths. To have their own experience whether subtle or profound yet most all have fun with the unusual colorful spiral of geometries. I was gifted profoundly with meeting beautiful people and learning much more of that ancient land and culture and the strength of the Egyptian people.

The labyrinth and the drum I used in the original ceremony in 2001 were left with The Human Foundation in Cairo to be used for others to enjoy and discover!

It is from the experience and visions on the September day in 2001 that my diverse knowledge, work, art and sharing of the simple, colorful, innocent labyrinths have evolved and continue to be expressed today.

If you enlarge these….look for the dolphin emerging from the cloud wing, then morphing into possibly an eagle head and then the last one shows the smaller wing attached to a double eagle/bird image. Also notice the image of cloud and mountain has an “unreal dimension shift look!       see Tuesday below.

So close to home, no it was our home and town…..that’s when we pay attention!

And that is also when true compassionate community comes together to set examples for change.

Like many others standing on the fringe, I offer the community and people of Weed prayers, blessings and support as I am able and capable of in the days, weeks and months to come. What that will look like I leave to the Great Divine Guide to show me the needs in time, space and way, physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually.  The loss of everything can open the wells of Spirit to provide all new and the floods of tears break down the dams of resistance to cleanse the paths ahead.

This region has been covered with smoke for a good portion of the summer. Smoke coming from fires, big fires from Happy Camp, CA to Grant Pass, OR but they are not here and so not so personal unless you have a personal connection to the land and people there.

It has been four days since life changed for the residents of the Northern California towns of Weed and Mount Shasta. Both these communities with populations of about 3,000 year round have large spikes in the spring and summer months with visitors from all over the world.

The long hot and insanely dry summer and similar happenings last year have left the land, rivers, lakes and ponds dry to parched of water……a tinder box holding its breath.

The cause is still a big question – arson, accident, act of nature……..we may know or may never know only speculate yet the stories will be told.

The photos I share here tell a story of my observations and messages over 3 days. As an Alchemist, Meta-physician and  Healing Practitioner I look at most all situations from varying views and see possibilities and opportunities in the darkest places. As many are saying too….A renewal and rebirth for Weed is here. What it will look like is up to each one making different choices.

The first photos were taken as I walked to the Mount Shasta Farmer’s Market on Monday, totally unaware of the fire at that time. The title of each photo indicates the day and time taken. These first ones were taken in less than a minute…….look closely into the white mass of the wing image.

These photos were taken on Tuesday at Shastice Park. Earlier in the day I had the strong guidance to take my 12ft x 15ft Walking for World Peace Labyrinth up there and do Ceremony, thus I followed this message.

With my drum and Nia, my 10lbs Lemurian Record-keeper crystal I began. With prayers and song while walking the paths into the center to stand on OM. There the prayers expanded through me to include the dissolving, neutralizing and purifying of all the history held within the land and heritage of the people – of earth-bound spirits, abuse, slavery, government programs and manipulations of the 70s, greed, corruption, loss, both now and other times and on and on.

The drum beats became stronger, louder and faster as I turned and turned and turned with tears and sobs flowing more and more…….all coming to an abrupt stop as the top of the drum mallet flew off and landed feet away. Silence, stillness and rest as I melted to the ground in gratitude.

As I sat and rested these clouds formed over the mountain, as through they were coming out of the mountain. Because of the grey color and the release intuitively felt that indeed a massive release and cleansing had begun.

The last time I did a ceremony similar to this one was at 11,000ft in the Rockies outside of Denver on September 17, 2001 – six days after 9/11. I was doing it along with my dear soul sister Toby Evans who was holding ceremony on her land and labyrinth in Sibley, MO at exactly the same time.

Back in 2001 the days of Sept 16 and 17 were called, as per the Mayan prophesy ” The Days of Truth” and ceremonies were held all over the world.

And these photos were taken Wednesday afternoon and I really can’t describe them, just use your imagination and wonder of whether ET’s came home! View from Weed truck stop.

The Future – just pondering out loud!

Of course at the moment few can see or feel anything beyond the moment and that is as it should be for those so close.

For others on the edges and with talents, know-how, position and desire, new ideas and support can be life changing for this/these communities. It is not and cannot be “as we have always done it before” nor should it be. New visions for renewing the image of Weed and to bring new opportunities in. There is a wealth of talent and innovation already there….now to see a new place.

I heard there have been discussions about the ownership and access to the Springs of Weed which is under control of the Lumber Mill. Perhaps a new opening can come and be acceptable to all to free the  waters of life force in a beneficial way.

And to the two denominations losing their buildings…….what an amazing opportunity there is for Unity of Spirit rather than Separation of Doctrine. With experience “serving” congregations in the South and Mid-West for nine years I have seen the Church from the inside out. Without the confines of walls and vestments, while the weather permits,  worship in the breadth of air and land together, Catholic and Presbyterian. Bring together the separation started by King Henry 8th, annexing to become the Church of England and then Presbyterians of Scotland breaking from there.

One large rebuilding fund (instead of two) for Unity of Spirit and Cooperation through tragedy. We are all indeed One in and with Life and Soul and our Breath makes us Whole.

And there is so much more coming from amazing people everywhere…………….
