Listening to my intuition
April 29, 2018
Saturn’s return at the end of last year smashed me pretty hard. If we are not on the right path, Saturn is like a thorn in our body: an outside authority which comes to re-organize ourselves when we lack the authority within.
It kicked my ass.
It kicked my ass and humbled me, so I could embrace my power and start working on my life’s mission. From then on, I have constantly asked the universe for guidance. What is it, what is my soul’s purpose? Why am I embodied here? With full trust, I followed my intuition, and it drove me towards the ancestral wisdom and precious teachings of nature.
Over the following months I followed my intuition on a long journey through Latin and Central America.
In October along with Bosque Medicinal I organized an expedition to Ecuador for the supporters of Bosque Medicinal and Forest.ink’s conservation efforts. In December it took me to a Vipassana meditation retreat in Costa Rica, and into the beautiful food-forest community of Fuente Verde. In January I was drawn to travel to the Andes. From there I went to visit a curandera in Peru and received the teachings of Mama Coca. In February I traveled by boat on the Amazon river to a Shipibo family near Pucallpa, Peru. There I dieted with the master plants, Aya and Bobisana. In March I returned to Ecuador to work with the medicine on a deeper level. In April I travelled to a Rainbow gathering in Colombia. From there I traveled on to the eco-community Atlantida to partake in a Sufi dance event for universal peace.
Slowly the pieces began to connect and make sense. A vision of my mission was coming into focus. Travelling, learning, and absorbing ideas, all while following with my intuition has let me collect the pieces of the mosaic. Often I received the message to focus on my force, but how? Listen and wait. One powerful night in a teepee in Ecuador I was blessed by a vision from Aya Mama Ya. The vision was of the kundalini and tantric Golden Chain. The Golden Chain is a way of describing the energetic link that exists between a teacher, their teacher, their teacher’s teacher, and so on back into history. When a Kundalini yoga teacher teaches, the first thing they do is connect with the Golden Chain and invite the wisdom within to teach through them.
The kundalini yoga classes I was taking at the time helped me tap into deep inner peace through breath, voice, and movement. This connection with the Infinite allowed me to further identify my passion…. Synchronicity brought me to Guatemala, to the most beautiful lake on Earth, and a source of Mayan tradition. In the small city of San Marcos lives a precious community of light beings, a star family which I immediately fell in love with. I began with 3 days of Cacao fasting, while watching volcano eruptions on the balcony and eating popcorn with my new special friends. It was here, isolated by the mountains, and surrounded by volcanoes that I did my intense kundalini yoga teacher training. Here I could more deeply feel the power of the creative force, kundalini energy. Here I could better understand the most powerful manifestation of energy in the universe, lying within us, waiting to be unfolded. Kundalini yoga is a science that allows us to direct that energy, and to truly control with this life force. When we unfold this extra capacity, we intuitively know not only how to live the life, but how to also fulfill the dream. We learn how to really master life and live in gratitude, as our passion, our access to the infinite, has always been there, waiting for us.
