I am writing from my beautiful cousin’s apartment in Benidorm with its outlook over the east coast. I arrived last night by train from Zaragoza. The last time I was here, I was just 18 and only truly beginning my travel adventures. Little did I know then what an important, necessary part of my life travel would become….
These last 3 weeks in Spain have been transformational, revealing, healing, challenging, exhilarating. It is all that a pilgrimage is expected to be, and I have been triggered to evolve from one state of how I am with my life, to another…in the great, mystical tradition of all pilgrimages.
With just one month to go now before the “Holy Grail in Spain Tour ~ embodying the Sacred Fire” officially begins, the truth of what I wrote you in February, is all the more evident:
“…a pilgrimage is something that takes people out of their ordinary life and cares – removes the known scaffolding of their life – and that sends them on a walking meditation into the unknown with a singular purpose: deepening their connection to their spirit by arriving in many sacred places….(with)…the ability to suspend time, where the visitor leaves the profane world and enters the eternal through the portal to the sacred.”
Pilgrimage is a place of standing on the edge, holding paradoxes and stretching your perceived limits. It’s a space to transform what has been outgrown into gifts to share with yourself and with others.
Over this last weekend in Zaragoza (one of our stops on the Tour), I came to heal a devastating event that occurred in my Grandfather’s life (and thus in the life of my Mother and her sisters) during the Spanish Civil War, exactly 80 years to the day and in the actual city of Zaragoza as well. Timelines merged. I can honestly say I was moved to a deeper level of ‘connecting to my spirit’, and to a deeper knowing of the Universal Love that surrounds us all because of the choices we make to the best of our abilities at the time of making them.
Spain is showing me each day why it is an exquisite place for pilgrimage in its uniquely interwoven mix of cultures from Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Americas and Asia, and its multilayered history of paganism, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Baha’ism…and more.
She is revered, celebrated. She holds space, nurture, understanding, sustenance, inspiration and provides guidance.
I discovered this profoundly and viscerally in Zaragoza’s cathedral over the weekend as I sought to restore dignity, honour and peace to my family’s past (an interior chapel in the Cathedral-Basilica of our Lady of the Pillar pictured).
As I move throughout Spain on foot and by bus and train and its sacred, wildly exotic landscape of mountain ranges, sacred routes, mythologies, spiritual festivals, monasteries, mosques, cathedrals, plazas of the sun, and as Holy Week (Semana Santa) and Easter approach….I see more clearly than ever that is a place of redemption, power, magic and transformation to be catalyzed to passionately live again, renewed, in one’s own Sacred Fire.
Are you longing to hear the voice of your own Truest Self? Could it be through be through traveling through the alchemical doorway into a mystical pilgrimage as the “Holy Grail in Spain Tour ~ embodying the Sacred Fire” in 4 weeks’ time?
Is it YOUR TIME?
Has the relentlessness of life, of our Shift in Consciousness, caused you to become so burned out, depleted, uninspired? I, too, know these dead places. I, too, intimately know of that longing on the Soul-Level for that spark to activate, shake and inspire oneself into a much more flourishing, deeply connected and consciously aware life.
Will you come on this pilgrimage with me….to yourself….like thousands before you, to re-ignite the inner Sacred Fire and to nurture the conditions for transformation within….to release, release, release outdated ties, hurts and ways of being….and ring in healing, renewal, awakening and JOY?
Imagine how, as you move from one striking location to the next, you will nurture the conditions for transformation deep within yourself…releasing outdated, karmic ties to the past and to self-sabotage.
Imagine traveling through areas rich in myths of the Holy Grail and where it has been hidden throughout the centuries, Isis, the Black Madonna, gypsies, Basques, the Knights Templar, Troubadours, and places that may have served as inspiration for the tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
Imagine experiencing an extraordinary Immersion in the ‘immortal city’, Girona, that will combine Dance, Wisdom Teachings, Meditation, the Tarot, the Qabbala, Astrology, Mandalas and more so that you can fully Embody the Sacred Fire of Creation….and transform your Life.
