Passion and Transformation: Priceless living of life.

Passion and Transformation

Written for "The Temple Magazine" August 2017

“Every individual has gifts and talents that can make a lasting impact. However, only a minority of people utilize those gifts and talents to live up to their full potential.” Karl Moore.

Merging a purpose and passion with your gifts and talents leads to transformation, personal and planetary.

We are passionate about remembering that we are spiritual beings in physical form; Walking and living gently on the Earth, giving back as much or more than we take. About ceremony and aligning ourselves with the Earth and the cosmos. Stones, symbols, the unseen realms have always been our guides. We have learnt to trust our intuition implicitly. We have an unerring belief in humanity and our ultimate destiny to evolve as enlightened beings, even if the world seems to be spiraling out of control. We walk our talk.

“Within chaos seek the stillness, within the stillness you will know yourself”…Phoebe Hoogendyk.

In 1986 our zest for life brought us together against seemingly unsurmountable odds. We both thought we knew which way the wind blew but Spirit had other ideas in mind. Ideas far more exciting, adventurous and challenging than we could have ever thought up.

From 1990 on Paul receive visions of elders from ancient tribes and lands calling him to find Pounamu, the sacred greenstone of Aotearoa/New Zealand. To carve it into twelve symbols. To take each to a destination somewhere in the world. Many years earlier he had received a download of information in Palenque, Mexico…the symbols and destinations!

With total trust we began a journey of the heart, fueled by our passion and understanding that somehow we were helping the Earth and its peoples. Paul carved a symbol that came to him during a vision. A destination followed. That led us, over eight years, to some of the most remote places on the planet and to 11 of the most ancient tribes. Those who still hold the true history of Earth.

From an ancient sacred site in Aotearoa, to Mt Kailash Tibet, to the Q’ero of Peru, The Big Island of Hawaii, The Inuit of Labrador, the Tsaatan of Mongolia, The wilds of Scotland, The Lacandon Maya of Mexico, The Dogon of Mali, The Temples of Cambodia and The Anangu of Central Australia, we faced many challenges. We overcame them all to transform them into joy and excitement.

Sometimes we catch ourselves wondering what would have happened had we not accepted the call! What would we have missed out on?

If you have something you are passionate about, realize that you have a window of opportunity to actually follow it. Grab it and fly. You will live the most amazing life and the self- transformation that goes with it, is priceless.

“Follow your hearts and live your dreams!”
