I see a beautiful apple tree full
In the centre of the trunk is a large
I enter inside and my body curves
into the space.
I am pushing and pushing until I
become one with the tree and my body becomes part of it.
The hole closes, enveloping me
inside, my arms are raised upwards towards the branches of the tree.
I feel an exquisite sensation as
energy shoots up my spine and through the tree and out of the branches.
I know I have made the right
I am sparkling with life-force.

There is a beautiful Dance around
the Tree of Life.
Maidens move with the breeze, which
gently blows their garments and their hair.
They are serene and in harmony with
the flow of Life.
As they give their energy to the
tree, it grows higher and higher reaching to the Heavens.
Around sit all the ancestors who
watch the Dance.
The Dance of Life.
They are content and know that all
It is time to celebrate.

The earth is beating, the sound of
a drum echoing from inside the surface.
It is the cry of the keepers of
Their cries from throughout the
centuries, their hopes, their fears,
their warnings, their silence, all
The beat is getting louder, the earth
is throbbing, pulsating.
Not everybody can hear. Not everybody
Many shut their ears but others hear
and begin to dance,
to move with fluidity, to flow with
the energy of the wind,
to take the vibration through their
They become the grasses, they
become the flowers, the trees.
The rocks are beating and somewhere
there is a howling,
an anger of energy as all around is
swept away and thrown aside,
tossed through the air and the
screaming becomes singing
and the singing becomes humming,
and the humming becomes whispering,
and the world sleeps.

I see a black circle before me,
hovering above the ground.
I step inside and it starts to spin
clockwise as I am stretched out across it.
It moves faster and faster into the
distance, which is where it has already been (in the past).
Then I am viewing it from the other
end so that it is coming towards me, rather than away.
I see that it is moving in a spiral.
I am still moving with it faster than light.
It is pushing through light and
extreme brightness, pointing towards a cave of ice.
I am propelled into the huge cave,
which is like a frozen castle.
A very, very strong smell of ice,
from ages old and earthy water. So, so ancient.
As I enter inside I see bears' heads
along the sides, all are sleeping.
I get further and further in and the
smell is of ancient times and deep, deep earth.
I am entering the Past, the Pathway
of times gone by.
Further and further...Beautiful
carvings of ice...spirals and strange markings carved in the ice...
Then directly in front of me is a
huge black bear. His eyes are closed.
He sleeps for eternity holding the
past within him.
The ancient wisdom in every breath.
I step inside him and become my past.
I am part of him, and belong to his breath - the heartbeat of the world.
And then it is reversed and we are
looking at it from the future.
It is time to sleep until the moment

There is a great storm.
The crocodile's mouth is open wide,
his jaws waiting.
The elephant stamps his giant feet,
crushing all before him.
Now is the time.
The oceans swirl and the crocodile
swallows the world.
The weight flips him over so we can
only see his underbelly; inside it is black, there is no light.
Holes are made in the crocodile's
belly so light can come through like stars.
It is a time of waiting, a time of
There is bird song, light creeps in,
the crocodile gives birth to the world as a round egg.
It is transparent and we are waiting
for it to hatch.

Note: This is the highest
degree of declination North, incorporating the Summer Solstice.
There is a gateway full of strange
a black giant bird guarding it,
although it too is part of the gateway.
Saying the mantra, the gateway opens
for me to enter and join a thronging mass,
a procession moving forward, all
I join them, yet my physical body
is left behind.
A priest ahead carries an emblem the
same as the door.
We chant, the sound becoming one note
of exquisite beauty,
lifting all upwards, a vibration
joining all of us as one.
The procession from afar looks like a
black empty space.
Ahead is an arched doorway, yet it is
made of nothing, just hovering light.
We are allowed through into this most
sacred of sacred places.
Here is a maze working beneath the
There is the sound of dripping water;
the scent of earth is in my nostrils,
I can taste it in my mouth.
A deep rich mineral taste, a taste of
My body and face become numbed, my
tongue unable to move and chant,
yet the humming goes on, echoing
beneath and above us.
The maze is the pattern on the
doorway and we follow it deeper and deeper.
At the end a doorway vanishes and we
are inside facing blazing light.
We throw ourselves on the floor
covering our eyes.
The light is searing through us.
You can hear its sound as it cleanses
We are in the presence of the Sun
I realise that the Sun is below
the earth, beneath our consciousness;
this is a place where the elements
meet and become one.
All air is drawn into one vessel,
which spirals around.
The dripping water becomes one
the earth begins to crumble as the
fire sears through all.
It is a holy, joyful moment.
The body releases all in offering to
The bodies become dry and chalk-like,
crumbling, releasing, finding a
freedom as they become one with the Source.
