After a few pretty amazing experieices and a very grounding lunch, I had no idea the experiences were only getting amped up.
It appeared that my soul was on a mission that day to heal, and what happened next took me completley by suprise.
I was about to experience a past life healing followed by a rebirth then some insights into another past life.
The power of this energy at Crystal Castle was beyond words and allowed me to heal everything that was sitting just under the surface.
(Revisit PART 1 and PART 2 before sinking into part 3 below)
I love food. I've come to realise recently how deeply grounding it is for me. As someone who easily floats up into the ethers and can regularly find myself ungrounded, eating is one of my favorite ways to ground.
After enjoying the beautiful chai and some divine organic, vegan salads at the Crystal Castle cafe, we headed off to the 2 enormous and infamous amethyst crystal dolphin caves that sit just beyond the cafe.
Standing between these caves and placing my hands on them, I had no idea what was about to play out.
I closed my eyes and tuned into my breathing. After a morning of lots of doubts arising from my ego, I knew better then to even entertain those thoughts. So I simply tuned into my inner world and became present.
Almost as soon as I closed my eyes I began to see and feel these 'circles of expansion', is the best way I can describe them. They were coming out from the centre of my body and moving upwards from my solar plexus and simultaneously downwards to the earth. It felt like I was being stretched. Grounded to the earth and connected to the divine simultaneously in a clear energy channel. I was aware of my human body feeling extremely tall.
All of a sudden I felt this immense pressure in my solar plexus and a knowing that a past life had made itself present to be healed. It wasn't a pain or a discomfort, just a strong pressure. I also felt an energy pushing me backwards. With all of my weight shifting to my heals, I was conscious not to fall backwards and held onto the enormous crystals a little tighter. I was then shown flashes of a wooden steak being pulled out of my solar plexus chakra. All of a sudden, all I could see was star dust as the pressure dissapeared and I felt incredibly light.
As I stood there breathing and being very present with all of the sensations I had felt and all of the information I had received, I began to receive some more guidance. 'Stand true in your practices as a channel, healer, teacher and intuitive. It's time to own them like never before, and it's completely safe to do so in this life time.'
After Meg and I both took turns experiencing the power of these divine amethyst crystal caves we shared our experiences with each other and held space for one another as we explored our shifts and allowed them to begin to integrate. THIS is one of the things that I am infinitely grateful for in this life time. Having soul sisters like Meg in my life who walk the path I do, and understand these experiences that I would have once upon a time hidden from everyone through fears of not 'fitting in' or seeming different. It's the unconditional love and support of my beloved soul sisters that has me stepping more and more into my truth every single day. For them I am ETERNALLY grateful.
As I was still energetically and mentally digesting my previous experience we walked along the path lined with some gorgeous healing greenery to the rose quarts stones in front of the big Buddha statue. The large rose quartz crystals were arranged in a spiral like shape, circling in an anti-clockwise direction from the centre out. Meg and I instinctively went and sat on either side of the stone in the centre and held hands and closed our eyes.
Instantly the word 'rebirth' dropped into my mind and I felt a deep grounding to the earth from my base chakra. It felt as though I were anchored to the earth and being held in place until my energy had somewhat grounded itself. When I shared this experience with Meg she confirmed she had experienced the same awareness of a rebirth. We sat there for a few minutes with our hands on the rose quartz stone in between us and let the energy sink in and integrate. It felt like so much had been stirred up and shifted so far that day. Sitting encircled by the healing energy of huge rose quartz stones was a welcomed comfort. (Rose quartz is a stone of the heart chakra, offering love and harmonies emotions).
Next we wandered down the enormous bamboo lined stairs to the stunning sodalite stone. We placed our hands on and closed our eyes. Instantly I was taken to a past life where Meg and I were together. I was shown images of us with woven baskets in the fields picking herbs and flowers, we were alchemists! But we were also doing it in the cover of the enormous trees and hedges where the town's people couldn't see us. The message for us was that 'it is safe to honour all the ways in which we are healers in this current life time'. Those past life versions of us would have wanted us to share it with the world now that we are in, a time where it is safe to do so. A comforting sensation of relief set in as another piece of my soul was healed.
Absolutely in awe of the experiences of the day, we meandered at a very slow pace (quite unusual for me;)) to the final area of the gardens before making our way back to our car. The labyrinth was our final destination for the day. The path that winds around and around and back on itself (maybe one to skip if you get motion sickness!) was intense for my head. As I followed the path and began to wind around and around and around, it was very much a metaphor for what was going on in my mind.
All of a sudden I began to see flashes of faces of people who I had assumed judgement from, presenting themselves one by one. As well as the faces I was aware of the stories my ego had made up about the things they were 'judging me on' and how much it had held me back. Really, these stories of judgement were just simply my own fears placed upon others because, well let's face it, it's easier to take it that way, and I never had to take responsibility for it if it's being projected at me from someone externally. It was clearly time to let all of that go mentally and energetically.
As I weaved my way around and around the labyrinth more and more faces of the 'judge's' flashed before me and I could feel the stories of judgement whirling around in my head like a mini cyclone before leaving out my crown chakra.
The more I walked, the more cleansed and lighter I felt, as I let it all go and took responsibility for all of the judgement (that was really self inflicted) as it passed through me.
I couldn't believe how clear I felt once I reached the end.
Wowza! What a day... I was going to need a bit of integrating after all of the phenomenal experiences I'd had that day.
Meg and I slowly walked back to our car in the most blissfully high state. Overflowing with love and peace, the feeling was euphoric. We made our way back along the gorgeous winding roads through the mountains to Byron to be reunited with my beautiful family.
My hubby could see and feel how much I was buzzing and how much of an energetic blissful high I was on. It was difficult to put into words to share with him and I could barely keep my eyes awake as I walked into town for dinner with my beautiful family. All my body wanted to do was rest and integrate the deep healing and shifts that occurred that day.
Even as I write these words I am taken back to this day and the feelings that arose within me. These experiences are things that I used to be so curious about as a kid. I used to romanticise about having experiences of past worlds and being psychic/ intuitive. Now I know that we all have the ability to tune into this subtle realm that exists within all of us. We just need to believe enough, let go enough and remember how to tune in to allow it.
Big love and hugs,
P.s. If you're curious about some ways you can work with my to turn up the volume to the voice of your intuition, here are a couple below:
+ You can book an in person or skype session with my gorgeous receptionists on (03) 9797 2111, or email me at info(at)stephdemetrious.com. During our session I tune into your energy and support you where ever you are at in your intuitive journey.
+ I also teach Reiki, and Reiki 1 has a large component on practising how to heighten your intuition and you'll take away some practical tools to support you along your journey. I have 2 spaces remaining for my final Reiki 1 for 2018 before I head off on maternity leave later this year. You can find all the info over HERE.
+ You can head over and learn the basics from my free Soul Resources section HERE.
Some self contemplation...
- When was the last time you had 'rememberings' surface?
- Have you ever had glimpses of other worlds or experiences that don't seem of this life time?
- Have you ever just simply sat in space and allowed your feelings and thoughts to pass through you? How did you feel afterwards?
I hope you enjoyed this series and feel a deeper level of understanding of your own journey in some way.
I'd love to hear your experiences, feel free to comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Big love and hugs,
