My first trip to Egypt came about due to a coincidence. Before I traveled there, I used to wonder why people were so excited talking about a pile of rocks put together by slaves. As a geologist rocks were routine to me and although I appreciated their beauty, I would not label them as a miracle. I am speaking, of course, about the Pyramids. Obviously, I now realize, I was very ignorant about all of this.
While in Egypt, I met an Irish woman who lived there named Mara. She told me about the tunnel under the great pyramid and Drunvalo's story (in his book The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, volume 2). Of course, I immediately wanted to go there. In spite of the fact that I was skeptical, the scientist in me was curious, but also, my heart wanted to believe. I see now, that I was looking for an experience.
The night before the trip to the tunnel, Mara told me about the scary stories surrounding others' experiences in the tunnel. At the time, I was still a scientist and was evaluating everything with my scientific mind, so I did not believe any of the stories. Mara arranged for our trip into the well chamber under The Great Pyramid and I crawled into the tunnel alone. This one experience changed my life forever. I understood that life is not what I had been taught by society, or in school, or by my family. Life is a mystery and a miracle.
As a result of this experience, I returned to Egypt later that year with a metaphysical group. I also began reading Drunvalo's books. On January 12, 2007 I attended my first workshop with Drunvalo in Maryland. Winter in Maryland, especially in January, is usually bitter cold. However, while we were there, the weather changed to warm and pleasant and stayed that way until the workshop ended. It was miraculous. I felt as if I was home with my family, and it all felt complete and true. I cried because I did not want to return to so-called "normal life".
Since 2007, I took a few detours, went to workshops from different teachers and appreciated them as well. I became certified by Tom Kenyon as a sound healer. I attained all the levels and certified of The Reconnective Healing with Eric Pearl, who was featured in the movie The Living Matrix. I studied with Elizabeth Severino who is an animal communicator and author. Since I have always had a strong spiritual connection with animals and have had animal guides who assisted me throughout my life, I was drawn to Elizabeth's teachings. I am also a Reiki Master certified by Diane Stein. I traveled to the mountains of Belgium to experience Christine Day's workshop. I have studied with Jim Self and with Steve Rother from Lightworkers. I have studied Akashi Record reading with Ernesto Ortiz. I met 17th Karmapa twice and was initiated by him into the Mantra of Medicine Buddha. In the second meeting, he gave us the Mantra of the Original Buddha.
Through my travels I have become immersed in major spiritual places around the globe, including South Africa, India, China, Japan, Egypt, Israel, England, Hawaii, Peru, Bolivia, and Mexico. I attended a metaphysical tour in Peru and Bolivia, during which I went through a number of initiations including the Island of the Moon and Island of the Sun on Lake Titicaca.
Throughout all my travels and experiences with other teachers, I always kept coming back to Drunvalo. On various occasions and in different cities I have taken his workshops entitled Earth Sky Heart. Subsequently, I began to attend the next iteration of workshops called Awakening the Illuminated Heart (ATIH). I travelled with Drunvalo's group to Uxmal in Mexico for a Meditation Workshop.
Finally, it occurred ... Waking up is not easy to do but it can be done - and it is now happening to me. I can teach this workshop, not because I have memorized theories or read books, but because I have experienced the changes in me and now I have different knowledge inside me. I can only hold a safe place for your awakening, but only you can do the job. No one can do it for you. For example, no one can take a shower for you or eat for you, these are things you must do for yourself. A single experience is worth a thousand theories. It is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
This is School Of Remembering, it is not about learning.
Remember, you must not be afraid of your own power but use it correctly for the benefit of all life. Remember your true self, not the character imposed upon you by society. Remember you and you will change the world.
The Institute of HeartMath in Boulder Creek, CA has studied and proved that the energy field of our heart is 5,000 times larger than the energy field of the brain. So give your brain some rest, and act through your heart. If you like scientific proof, it has been proved that the so-called "tiny space" of the heart physically exists. When you tap into this tiny space, you are tapping into the highest energy of God and through this way, you can influence not only your own life but the universe as well.
I am honored and in deep gratitude to have the privilege to be the teacher in the School Of Remembering. It took two years to evaluate my "Inner Guidance" and to gain the confidence needed before I could proceed with the ATIH teacher's training.
It is important to prepare for the workshop by reading a series of texts by Drunvalo:
He recommends the following: "The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life" Vols. 1 & 2. Available in most libraries the ISBN 1-891824-17-1; 1-891824-21-X. and "Living in the Heart" ISBN 1-891824-43-0.
So come to the Workshop and have your own life-changing experience. I will do the best from my heart to assist you in your journey to your awakening.
