This episode is about a recent vision quest I created for myself, or allowed myself to be carried into. A vision quest is a rite of passage, that in many cultures will involve separation from community, aloneness in nature, and perhaps a series of “ordeals” that evoke greater self-awareness. This quest ticked all those boxes… and then some! Chapter 1: Working with San Pedro & Connecting in with Nature I had a ticket for Burning Man in the US. But something didn’t feel right. So I followed a call to drop into nature and ceremony, working with a plant teacher/ medicine, on sacred land. I set the intention to heal some childhood stories that I could feel manifesting in present day relationships. I had a profound and joyful experience, but to get to the joy I had to do some deep inner work. I was able to access memories that were buried under a thick crust. This allowed me to approach the past from the present, and move trauma from my body through the light of awareness as well as copious amounts of laughing, whooping, shaking, moving, tree-climbing, crying, singing, swimming and BEING. By the final day, I felt so light and free. I felt Wild. There was an Eagle circling high above me. I instantly began “craughing”- my new word for laughing and crying at the same time. (It’s awesome). Such deep gratitude for the plant teacher and those who serve it with such integrity and wisdom. And for those who journeyed with me to these other realms to be part of each others healing. Key Lessons: * In the present I heal the past * The external world is a mirror of what lies within * Experiencing “Love & higher wisdom” simply arises when one removes the “static” of lower frequency emotions and thoughts. Its always there. Natures frequency. Chapter 2: My Birthday & the Toad I came back home to spend my birthday with my wife and friends. What a beautiful day/ evening of love and connection. We had a drums, didgeridoo, guitars… and loads of food.. and a fire of course. I received an “honouring”- each friend speaking about what they saw in me that gave them inspiration. I shared a few words from my heart about Tribe… and the very special feeling of being part of one.
