11.11 Retreating

I joined a beautiful group of people on Saturday to visit some amazing sacred sites right here in Cape Town.

I was not entirely sure why I had to go, like most things in my life these days I sort of just go with my gut.

It turned out to be such a magnificent day. I have been working for the last month with the intention of connecting with the energy of Mother Earth and trying to balance out the energies of the cosmos and the energy of earth. I am really more of as I call it a ‘space cadet’ – most of my healing work and channeling work focuses on working with cosmic energy. I then started getting the messages that I have to look at grounding and connecting with earth energy.

Obviously I had no idea where to start, but I have been picking up bits and pieces to try and complete the puzzle. As with most things on my spiritual journey – I am given little bits and pieces of ‘aha’ moments and then in the end it all makes sense.

And I believe the retreat was another puzzle piece.

We visited a beautiful sacred site in the mountain behind Cape Town in the shape of a pyramid. There is a belief that the peninsula here has it’s own chakra system and that certain points represents certain chakra’s energetically. So the pyramid represents the solar plexus of the area and as you might know the solar plexus is all about letting go of fear and stepping into your power and ultimately your purpose. So we did a lovely sound meditation right under this rock. As I was sitting there with my feet planted on the soil and my intention of connecting with Mother Earth I felt such calm and clarity. I once again realised how important that calm connection with nature is for us to get into that place of surrender, just allowing the message that you need to hear to come through. I was given the next piece to my puzzle as well.

We then climbed to the side of the pyramid. I have this hectic fear of heights and it is something I have consciously been working through for quite a few years now, it is a lot better but my knees still buckle in fear when I get close to an edge. And then as we are sat there chatting and chilling in the sun, our tour guide offers to take us to the top of the pyramid. As I sat there I actually saw myself lying flat on the pyramid hugging her and I thought to myself I should go up there. But the silly fear crept in again… Then I heard someone talking behind me about how fear is just something we create and I just got up and started climbing, I manged to get to the first section which was half way up, a huge achievement in it self, and right at that point there was a little ledge that allowed me to stretch myself across the side of the rock in a hugging movement. I just planted myself there and hugged the rock. I am not sure how long I stood there but eventually one of the guys offered to show me how to get up the last part, and again without thinking I just shuffled across and decided to do it. So I climbed right to the top and got to look through the eye of the pyramid. It was wonderful and I stayed up there for ages!!! It was so beautiful and I felt so happy.

The climb down was pretty easy and luckily my initial fears about how to do that just sort of disappeared too.

I realised again how by just being in the moment we can connect with that inner power and sense and just get things done…
It’s quite simple isn’t it, we just seem to forget sometimes 😉

Many blessings

Yolandi
