Travel along Spine of Europe: Clearing European Continental Chakras of Constantine's and Other Warrior Energies
Visit to Serbia: Sirmium & Zemun (Belgrade) Ceremonies
From an Epic Shamanic Pilgrimage for Love and Peace
BELGRADE, Serbia, Oct 7 - What happened during our short visit in Serbia is a great example of why one should never confuse quantity with quality. We spent less than 24 hours in my native country. Yet we came away with three movies, countless stories and a lifetime of memories.
"Of the 11 countries that we visited, the most memorable one that I think of every day, and it's very moving, was our visit to Belgrade (Serbia)," Elizabeth said in an Oct 30 interview about the highlights of our European pilgrimage (see Epic European Pilgrimage 2011 - Video Highlights).
"Why," I asked her.
"It was very moving because it touched my heart. I was thrown back in time," she said. "The energy or the feeling I had in Belgrade was unbelievable. It was just very moving. It is something I will never forget."

Above are some shots from the visit to our parents' gravesite. That's where I also bought the pink flowers which I was to use later on at the shamanic clearing ceremony at the Sirmium Imperial Palace. I am wearing yellow because Sirmium represents the Solar Plexus chakra of the European continent. That's where I also cleared the warrior energies from the second ray souls. Here's a short film about that ceremony...
Zemun and Belgrade Visits
In late afternoon, my nephew Stasa, the son of my late brother-cousin Bora, who I believe was the incarnation of Crispus in this lifetime, came to Sremska Mitrovica (Sirmium) to pick us up and drive us a short distance to Belgrade (see the maps). We had reservations at the Belgrade Intercontinental hotel which used to be my "headquarters" during my years as a war correspondent (1990-2000 - see the left map and the photo below). The hotel manager had the same suite reserved for me throughout that decade.
During the NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999, I was virtually the hotel's only guest. CNN and other western war correspondents used to stay at the nearby Hyatt.
So on my first post-war visit to Belgrade, the hotel staff greeted me warmly as ever. And then a worrisome frown came over the face of the receptionist who was checking me in.
"Mr. Djurdjevic, it's been a few years since we saw you last," he said. "Is there going to be another war?"
Evidently, my (rare) visits to my hometown had become synonymous with war. That was the only period during which I was a "regular" at the hotel. I smiled and replied, "no, don't worry. Sometimes I can just come for a visit-visit, can't I?"
The clerk smiled back. He seemed relieved.
Our first stop, however, was the Zemun cemetery where Bora's grave is (see the left map). That's where I did my second Crispus ceremony, this time in the presence of my grandson from my Constantine lifetime - Stasa. Take a look...

BACKGROUND & CONTEXT
HAIKU, Maui, Sep 27, 2011 - To understand the full context of this extraordinary journey, a new reader needs to check out and contemplate the following revelations that came to be about Constantine, the first Roman Emperor to embrace Christianity and help codify it (see Nicene Creed) into a religion that we still know it today, 1700 years later. The first revelation occurred in late June of this year, at the time of the 40th anniversary of my first wife's death (Betty, who I later intuited was also my first wife Minervina in the Constantine lifetime).
Through a combination of my own intuitions, and that of my Masters-Teachers and other important figures in Constantine's lifetime who are incarnated today, I pieced together this fascinating mosaic of stories (published at my arts and spirituality web site - www.altzar.org ):
