We are going back!
Back to this beautiful sacred mountain which has changed my life in so many ways.
The first time I visited was back in 2003, just feeling the Call like so many others. As I arrived I saw the majestic mountain from the town – a sight that cannot be explained or reproduced from any photo. There is an energy, an aura that exudes from Shasta that is undeniable.
She is a Grand Ancient Consciousness and as we see her, we know – this is a sacred encounter. There is a deep feeling of Home. A memory of being here from ancient, ancient times. Possibly the Lemurian link I have been reading about.
For the next few days I experience an incredible transformation that lifts and releases so much of my denser energies (pain, suffering, limitations, belief systems) and I become free-er and free-er. I had read about Shasta before arriving yet I was not expecting the level of transformation that occurred.
Over the next week I underwent a complete spiritual and personal transformation – experiencing a peace I had never encountered before. It was real. It was inside of me. What I have found from my many journeys to Mt Shasta is that the mountain teaches us many things – one for me has been Magic.
That the magic we so seek in life is of course within. And this happens through a total release of energy, emotions, patterns which no longer serve us and a surrender, a total surrender to Spirit. She rekindles our Faith and strengthens our Connection – in the unseen, in magic, in the other realms which are all around us, assisting. For whatever reason when we are in Shasta we experience a reality that is so real, it makes the other reality we come from seem unreal. We realise what life is truly about – and that all this talk of unconditional love, divinity, the eternal nature of our true reality – is Real. We feel it. We become it. We embody it.
The Heaven that I felt following the transformation in this first week fundamentally changed something inside of me. I realised that these power spots on the planet are incredibly miraculous opportunities for us to experience the most profound transformations. I returned to London and began my spiritual work – which then involved writing articles. Shasta has this tendency to clear us to a level where we begin to find clarity in our path, which is why she is also known as the Path Weaver. She is known by many names.
For me she is also a Sacred Mother – a mountain that has guided me throughout my life, helped me set up the London College of Spirituality, assist me in emerging from depression, in finding my faith, in allowing me to tap into Heart Centered living. She teaches me about polarity, unity consciousness, working with group energy, higher consciousness wisdoms, and helped me tap into my channelling abilities which I use to this day.
The Call is subtle. The energy when you first arrive is subtle. And that is the power of real change, it begins subtly and then is felt over the next day and day after. As I began to bring groups to Shasta I began to notice a very different form of transformation. One that was so vast that it propelled me into incredible surges on my path. The group energy is immense and allows us to collectively work through lifetimes cycles of self worth, self-power, self-love in days. Days. And opens us up to a heart centered energy that completely radically transforms us. Our way of working at retreats is unique – we embody Spiritual Transformation and fully believe in the inner work; together with Heart Centered Love, radiating this out to all participants; and a surrender to the Divine which is guiding us all.
Every time we visit Shasta and take a group I know we have been called – not simply for our own transformation yet for much higher reasons that affect the entire planet. This is the power of the work that is being done in Shasta and will call those who are working at this level. She is a majestic channel onto the planet, pouring new consciousness for the rest of the consciousness to absorb and integrate. As we visit, we become conduits and channels for her energy, taking this into our lives and carrying out the work of the Divine, through us. And this year is especially significant with the amount of change we are experiencing, personally and collectively. This is a visit all of us on the team are looking forward to on so many levels.
It would be an honour to be your guide with other beautiful facilitators and team members on this sacred journey we take together.
