Magical Blessings in Hawaii


First Published Sibyl Magazine August 2018

Recently in Hawaii, a place filled with mana, the energy of the ancient, an essence felt like a gentle cloud lifting your spirit. We landed in Honolulu and then took a flight to Kauai the smallest island of the Hawaiian group, yet the oldest.

Several hours after we landed Pele the volcano on the Big Island erupted. After a discussion with the local natives, they expressed no surprise nor concern. They understood Pele and had a deeper more profound connection which gave me confidence that all would be well.

On my second morning, I was enjoying breakfast by the ocean with a couple of friends when a native in spirit came to me. We began a conversation, unbeknown to my friends sitting at the table, and he asked if I would do a ceremony on the beach, which I agreed. I have to say that I didn’t know what that would look like but trusted I would know at the time.

That afternoon we went off to peruse the island, and the next morning I went down to the ocean alone and began to walk along the beach. The sun shone with such warmth, the sea breeze gently kissed my skin, and the salt air made me feel alive and happy. The ocean was magical, and then I stumbled across a seal sunning itself looking delightfully peaceful. This was the place!

Feeling a sense of excitement, I took off my sandals and walked into the water up to my ankles, then raised my hands, and as I did the native spirits surrounded me. I unleashed my soul’s voice, a light language I have sung since a small child. Then I heard them as they sang in the same language, a first for me, and my heart burst open with joy. The energy was electrifying yet soothing as we harmonised together, and I soon lost myself in it. For how long I have no idea, but what I can say is I was abruptly woken out of my state by a rush of icy cold water between my legs. OMG. I looked down to see the water was lapping at the top of my thighs. Had I walked in further?

I moved back out of the water and onto the wet sand, feeling a little dazed. Then my feet sunk into the compacted sand covering my ankles. Then, thump, thump thump. A steady beat pounded hard under my feet, the sand around moved with the intensity, tears began to flow for I felt Mother Earth’s heartbeat. I gently closed my eyes feeling one with her, a sacred time, never to be forgotten.

Previously, I’ve been compelled to travel to far and distant places to heal the land, and the people, and be the key to open portals and vortexes. This time was very different for it was a gift and blessing for me. A past life known about yet confirmed in greater detail, which tears still flow in gratitude today.
