yoga at sunrise at Leliyn, at the base of the deep pool. There was a dark
heaviness in the water, but it threw the lightness of the clean air into
relief. The sun was going to appear in the deep of the ridge of the two sides
of the gorge. The air was a pure line of energy to the approaching sun.
I was directed
to practise mountain pose and extended mountain pose. My crown chakra was
energised and the length of my spine. Usually I practice Qigong later in the
day, often at evening, but this time, I felt the urge to do a wide variety of
Qigong breathing exercises, especially emphasising the balance of opposites.
Up above the
deep pool of Leliyn, on the walk to the upper waterfalls, the land is decorated
with pretty coloured rocks and a soft light, even in the heat of the day. A
gentle breeze accompanies our walk.
I hear some
women laughing as we get closer to the pools. They tell me it’s a woman’s area,
and for small children. But they are not offended that Albert is along. They
I see signs on
the way. They tell me to follow a
different path. I listen a few times, but Albert and Jett are on the designated
path and I don’t want to lose them. They want me to go slower, but we are in
the heat of the day, and Jett is tired. I compromise. I take a few detours and
pause over some rocks and bent trees.
It’s a softly
enchanting place, and full of good things. It leads to the ‘safe’ rock pools. I
hear them saying that some places I can’t swim, but I’m not sure. I only swim
where I feel for sure, they say, its ok for me.
(I also know,
that if other people swim there, nothing ‘bad’ will happen to them. But if I
don’t listen to my ‘inner voice’, then I go against the red light, and put
myself in danger.
The land tells
me where to walk. Albert asked me to explain what I mean. Its like the land
becomes highlighted. It seems ‘obvious’ that this is the way to walk. The other
options are in shadow, in comparison.
The land says
its not about the looks of the place. Forget the looks. Its about the feel of
the place. A feeling you get when you are in between the rocks. The energy that

are means to experience ‘oneness’. When you practice with each pose, there will
be one that ‘works’ for you. It will act like a bridge to the other world. This

I was sitting
at the front, relaxing, in meditation, and I heard ‘Jesus▪ is everywhere. He is
here if you call, but you don’t have to come to church to find him.’ Then I was
specifically told not to let another person bless me in any way, unless
practicing a type of ‘guru yoga’, where one invokes an image of a great teacher
to help contact the universal consciousness. When I thought of different teachers
that I am aware of, I felt most comfortable with Jesus.

quarters combined. I paused before entering. A bookstore is a big time stealer

sensed a warm overwhelming peaceful presence. What else to say? It permeated
the entire area. I walked very slowly and as my ‘ordinary’ sense came back to
me (like sight and sound), I saw indications of Buddhist influences in the
décor. There were Tibetan prayer flags, Buddhist figures and a cleansing lemon
scented oil being burnt. I could also
hear the sound of an espresso machine.
I’m in the
beginning of a transformative way of dealing with the world. As I develop a
stronger confidence in myself as me, and as I release my feelings of inadequacy
to live up to the social models, I open up choices of my reality. I have been
asking for help and direction, and I was lead over to a book shelf. The book

pulsation of energy. Enough to charge the top of my head (crown).
