Ive been sailing with 3 friends for a week when everything lined up to journey. We found a small deserted beach on a beautiful little island. As we were all relatively experienced travellers we decided to all have a journey together at the same time. We set our intentions, gave thanks and took some deep breaths.
I could feel my friends tumbling in this extraordinary reality as we entered a realm that few have entered together. Unresolved issues from past relationships, male and female presented themselves for the purpose of healing. Emails to write, things to share all came forward from my subconscious. I felt the sun calling me back to the place I left. I laid flat on my back in the sand facing the sun and opening my eyes to it, even though it was the middle of the day. The sun was my friend, feeding me as I squinted to allow just the right amount of the suns light into my eyes. It felt alive and conscious, beaming with information for me to absorb, decode and use. I felt my friends in their journey. One came over and played a crystal chalice over my body that seemed to be vibrating and tuning every molecule and cleansing my being of blockages.
I staggered to the oceans edge and laid in its shallow turquoise waters, feeling its cool supportive energy. In that moment I felt connected to all the oceans of the world.
We regrouped, connected and shared our unique journey within the group experience, feeling extremely blessed to be able to experience the depth of connection we felt with all and each other.
The next day myself and another decided to journey deeper with a stronger individual session. We sailed to another nearby isolated beach on the same island and set up an alter under the shade of a tree on the edge of the beach. This time my intention was to dive into the subject of my documentary, “The Toad the Whale and the Sun”. I put some prerecorded whale song on the mega boom 3 speaker.
I started facing the sun with my arms in the air looking into the sun and took some deep breaths. The sun pixilated and I landed slowly on my elbows in the sand. Whales song guided me in this strange dimension. The whale songs felt timeless and like they were sung for this ceremony. I could hear the crows visit a nearby tree squawking their song. They seemed to be aware that I was journeying deep in connection with all nature and their world, unlike any other human has ever done before. The whales and the crows where my temporary guides, holding and guiding me.
I eventually felt to stand and face and connect with the sun. I got naked with my arms out stretched, head back, mouth open, tongue out, looking into the midday sun with my eyes squinting. Hundreds of blue butterflies fluttered around me holding space. I turned and acknowledge the crows who I now felt telepathically connected to in this union of all life. I faced the direction of the whale songs and while centring myself, dissolved into the depth of their great mystery. I could feel the group consciousness of the whale nation supporting me and humanity to release fear and come back into love.
I did my little grounding dance and connected deeply again with the sun. I could feel the suns rays as an offering and I and humanity just needed to tune our receivers, to receive the finer vibrations of the sun, that serve us in these times. With outstretched hands I slowly made my way down to the water. I felt deeply connected to all life as I slowly walked, with the sound of whale song, the 150 meters to the water. I laid down in 6 inches of water and allowed it to caress and enliven my body, while facing the sun and merging with everything.
I relaxed in the shade for the rest of the day integrating and going over the experience. I had the sense that this experience was not just for me and that I was releasing stored tension and fear from the group consciousness of humanity and creating a pathway to allow love and connection to flow into its place.
While waiting for the tide to come back in, a grandfather pine tree offered me some of its sap to use in ceremony. It was a big day.
