Jessica and her husband Peter are my hosts while staying in Peru.

So far along the journey... my thoughts continuously swarm and swirl as I philosophize and attempt to make sense out of everything, and find the meaning in everything.

This is at the same time, a curse and a blessing.

I have a gift in seeing through the veil and beyond the veil and seeing what is at the heart and the truth of matters. I sense it as a feeling that most often comes with images or visions. I sense the energy of the time and experience or a statement e.g. "occurrence", future, past, present, and am able to interpret these things in a way that brings clarity for a person that begins to unravel the ties that bind them to the negativity of these experiences.

This works great when a person engages me! It's like, some flicks the switch and I get "turned on" so to speak, and these visions and sensations flow through me.

I, on the other hand.... in my own world, left to my own thoughts and feelings, don't always have immediate concise clarity and insight on "what I'm here for?" and "what does it all mean?"

"Who am I?"

My three most favorite questions.

And now, I know to trust that all of the answers reveal themselves in good time...

Ah, the beauty of life's ironies, all at once a channel for clarity and insight, and a complete and utter confused human being. I guess this is what makes me so grounded and able to be helpful and compassionate for others. I get it. Life is confusing, scary, difficult. 

It's also beautiful, it's magical, and the challenges are purposeful.

So here I am in Peru, through a series of synchronistic events all "making so much sense" and bringing me back to this place where I received so much wisdom and answers to my three favorite questions. "Who am I? What am I doing here? and What does it all mean?"

"A New Way of Knowing" program was revealed to Jessica and I in a truly on purpose and inspired way, and of course I would come to Peru to transmit the energy and co-create with the Divine and my soul-sister Jessica.

On top of the Mountain, the Temple of the Moon is a cave within this mountain.

I came to Peru to deliver a message to women all over who find themselves asking these three important questions. However, in being here, it has occurred to me that this spiritual journey, on a personal level, has much more in store for me than I imagined.

Perhaps what's in store for me on this trip is something I couldn't have imagined or planned, because I wouldn't have thought it's what I wanted or needed, because I've been so focused on other things.

And this is how life goes, isn't it? Our purpose, the meaning of it all, is revealed to us one step along the journey at a time. If we're confused, or feel stuck, or are frustrated because we don't know what to do next, the thing for us to do is to take the next step, without knowing.

Follow your own foot steps
Learn from the rivers
The trees and the rocks.
Honor the Christ
The Buddha.
Your brothers and sisters.
Honor your Earth Mother
and the Great Spirit.
Honor yourself and
all of creation.
Look with the eyes
of your Soul and
engage the essential.
— The Inca Q'ero

I have much more to share on my experience so far, in less than a week I have participated in two sacred ceremonies, invoking the Spirits of the Mountains, and have begun Shamanic initiation in the Pampamesayok lineage.

More on the blogs to come.... for now I invite you to follow me on Instagram, where I'm sharing a lot of my pictures and videos along the journey.

In love and service,
