A dual purpose mission to help create peace and harmony in Europe
Performing Healing Ceremony, "Amazing Grace" Leads to Llama Magic at End
HAIKU, Maui, Mar 10 - If you have read the first two stories about it, you will have seen that Saturday, Mar 3, was a magical day from dawn to dusk. The film you're about to see now is about the Alpine healing ceremony. I have just edited it into 14 out of over 30 minutes of video that I had shot on location.
The background music comes from my own compositions titled "4 Elements" (Earth, Air, Water, Fire). I created and recorded it in April 2011. As you will see, the music seems to fit perfectly with our mission and the purpose of the Spirit realm which guided me to this magnificent location. What may not be obvious to you, however, is that while I was editing the film, I did not even have to think about synchronizing the music with the scenes. It just happened, as if by magic.
So when I got to the end of the ceremony - the burning of the Despacho - the "Fire" segments from the "4 Elements" was playing in the background. I did not have to "manage" anything. The Spirit did it for me as they have done with everything that happened on that magical day.
For those of you who are not Inca-trained shamans, perhaps I should explain some of the terminology you will used in the film. "Pachamama" is Mother Earth in Quechua. "Pacarina" (or "Pakarina") is a place of origin, a birthplace. According to Inca legend, all life originated at Lake Titicaca, the world's highest lake (at 12,000 ft - see left and right photos and Tour of Puno, Lake Titicaca, Jan 2010). The Sun shed a tear, and when it dropped on the Earth, it created this lake and the Sun Island on it. There are other mythological versions of this story, but the basic premise of a "pacarina" is the same - place of origin, a birthplace.
Which is what Lake Vernago now is for us, the Stewards of the Earth. Lake Vernago, on whose shores this ceremony takes place, is "only" at about 6,000 ft elevation. But cosmologically it is an Alpine Pacarina, just as Lake Titicaca is an Andean one.
And now with this preamble, I invite you to watch this 14-min film:
Alpine Healing Ceremony on Lake Vernago, Under Mt Similaun (Mar 3) - by Bob Altzar Djurdjevic
By the way, one of our new Stewards of the Earth - Kia (Chiara) from Rome, Italy - sent me a recording of the Prayer I offered to Gaia-Pachamama (Mother Earth) during the ceremony both through words and through fire. Here it is as am MP3 file:
Kia's Reading of the Prayer (Mar 3)
Here are also some other gifts I received from the lake and the mountain on that Saturday, Mar 3, a "triple three's" day...
I have also received several kullas which I shared with my fellow-Stewards of the Earth - Eve in Ireland, Lincoln in England, Walter in the Netherlands and Annmarie in Denmark (see Alpine Ceremony Story).
HAIKU, Maui, Mar 11 - Here's my final video from the European trip - about the start and the finish of my "big day" in the Alps. Something interesting happened this morning during my meditation as I was calling the Apu Similaun and the Alpine spirits and Santa Tierras (Pacarinas). When I called on the Santa Tierra of the lake where our Apucheta now sits, the words "Lago di Vernago" spontaneously flowed from my lips. It was only afterward that I realized it was the Italian version of Lake Vernago or Vernagt in German.
This is clearly another proof that I must have visited this area in some of my past lifetimes. Nor is it the first time something like this has happened. Whenever I am in Italy, the Italian language seems to come to me from out of nowhere. I never studied it in school and have only spent a very limited amount of time in Italy in this lifetime. Yet...
If you're interested in seeing some summertime pictures of the emerald green Lago di Vernago, click here. You can also compare the wintertime shot I took (left) with a similar scene in the summer (right). I marked on the latter photo the approximate locations of our Apucheta-Despacho and of the place where I sighted the herd of llamas.
Anyway, back to the Innsbruck film, I thought that the sound of the Innsbruck church bells at dusk was a perfect ending to a perfect day:
