I thought I’d begin to talk and write about my next adventure. I have been invited to France later this year and ever since, I have been thinking and reading about the Camino Trail. I first heard about it from a potter friend of mine, Pam who lived on Tamborine until recently and moved to Cairns. She made heart-shaped clay pieces which she gave to people she met, and asked them to take them home and hang them on a tree, or and take them to where ever they were going and hang them there. The message on these medallions is Peace. I have passed them to many visitors to the mountain. I’m sure they have been around the world many times. She had done a Camino walk and had changed her surname to one of the places en route.
Such a simple idea and an effective way of promoting peace, I thought. I have no idea how far she walked or any other details but it had obviously profoundly affected her life. So after being invited to the south of France this year I wanted to find out more and whether it was possible for me, so I have been busy researching and thinking how I might do part of it. Since my physical condition is not good, but I have been following my guidance since my own pilgrimage around Australia in 1996, described in my Uluru by Arunda book (available on line through my Facebook site), I thought I would allow myself to be guided to where I needed to go.
Claude Tranchant in her `Boots to Bliss’ book describes meeting two old women sitting on an outdoor bench. They had difficulty believing someone at the other end of the earth, Australia, could have heard of St James Way and that is what the Camino had been known as for thousands of years. Later she placed a heart shaped stone at the foot of a cross for the people she had known in her life and each time she found a cross, she deposited a heart-shaped stone for someone at its base. I’m sure I’ll be quoting from Claude’s book again as its the best book on the Camino I’ve found to date.
At Easter I was invited by a medium friend to meet someone I should meet. It turned out to be a most momentous meeting with another earth healer who has worked on the Camino, Sharon Bela-Verdy. We had lots to share and we set up a light point where she is living and I believe I’ll be working with her when I go to France. She is launching a Foundation – Green Beautiful Foundation to bring in the new energies for healing Gaia the Earth Mother. As a result of the weekend, a new level of energy has come in for me and relates to Te Aho the Maori leader who I tuned into previously and wrote about. I am now resting and integrating the new energies.
When I got home there was a pile of photocopied books left for me, including one on Atlantis by Shirley Andrews: Atlantis Insights from a Lost Civilization. In it she describes the Atlantean colonies which settled on the coast of Spain after Atlantis sank.
Hardy inhabitants of the community of Tarshish on Spain’s Atlantic coast returned when the water retreated around 10,000 BC, and by 7,000 BC Tarshish was again a thriving community renowned for its poetry laws and books. In 533 BC the Carthaginians sacked and burned the beautiful city but there are remains off the Spanish coast on the continental shelf which are visible to divers. Edgar Cayce also describes Atlanteans settling inland from the Bay of Biscay and settling in the Pyrenees where they lived in relative isolation, their descendants are the Basques. Their blood type has a much higher percentage of RH negative blood which is a characteristic of Atlantean descendants everywhere. The Basque language Eushera, reflects the prehistoric language and has common origin with Central American Guatemalan language. They are believed to be another Atlantean group, as are the Tuartha in Ireland. This book has a wealth of information on the Pleiadian contact and working with the leylines.
