Follow the Mountain
I met up with dear friend Susan Davison, a Reiki Master-teacher , Counsellor Extraordinaire, Earthwoman-mother, Goddess, and so much more, in the markets today. Susan and I went on an 'all day" road trip and sacred journey over the divine Mt Glorious mountain (Brisbane hinterland) yesterday.
Early before we set out - I meditated and asked that we would be guided to the perfect places and kept safe that day - I instantly saw us swimming in Sommerset Dam (about an hour 20 mins drive West - then North from Brisbane).
Susan and I had agreed she was in charge of the driving and navigation, and I would provide all the food for the day. When she asked me where I wanted to go (as we sat in her car) I handed the decision back to her, trusting she would 'hear' the signs - She immediately said - "Let's go West" - and I smiled! We drove through Samford Valley and headed west over Mt Glorious. Time and time again, Susan would say "Where to now do you think?", and I would smile and remind her she knew where to go. When we finally arrived at Sommerset Dam for a divine and welcomed swim, I told her about my meditation. We both laughed and marvelled at how we much we trust each other and Spirit.
We spent the rest of the day with Susan intuitively finding a place for us to stop for 'lunch' - she shared that she had hoped we would have dinner outdoors, and I had only packed our lunch. We had a mango and seeds at one of our early stops for a midday snack, and drank lots of water. It wasn't until we arrived at the top of a glorious hill at sunset, on a road neither of us had travelled before (and that was not even on the sat nav when we took a sneaky look for the first time), that we took out my esky and unloaded our fine banquet. Fresh green salad, vegetarian antipasta, asparagus, hummus, and a raw food berry pudding that I slaved over the night before! We took time to greet the ancestors and spirits of the land, Mother Earth, Father Sun, and Great Spirit, and to give thanks for our wonderful day. We played my wonderful new hand made gong from Nepal, a gift from a friend. Later, after we ate every speck of food, I drummed up a storm with my medicine drum while Susan took it all in. This was followed by a short piece on my rosewood flute. We were in heaven!
The view was perfect, and we both new we were exactly where we were meant to be, and where we were not meant to be, at all times. The road, that we had finally settled by, had started out as a narrow gravel road, and when we reached a fork in it at once stage - before Susan had a chance to ask"which way?" I began to sing a chant that I could hear being sang to me by Spirit -
"Follow the mountain, Don't be afraid, "It will show you the way".
All man made signs and common sense said - "go left" - but we both new to go right - and as I sang and sang, Susan followed the Spirit of the nearby mountain that eventually led to our picnic spot, a beautiful view, and a bitumen road that took us home across country in no time at all.
We reflected many times on our journey on how strong our intuition was becoming, and how all we really need to do is to stay still and go inwards to be shown the way. All we need will come our way, in Divine Time.
When Susan and I met at the markets this morning, we talked about how well we had both slept, and how peaceful we felt from having dedicated a full day to listen to spirit in nature. We have made a date to go on another adventure in a month's time and both can't wait.
