Journey to Sacred BALI!
the Heart to World Service
by Sharon Maia Nichols)
to you all! We are so happy to share about our life-changing
journey to Bali - which involved most, if not all of you.
know that when you join us for the WorldWide Meditation - you have
a direct impact on the consciousness of the planet! Gabriel
has informed us that we increased the number of people that participated
in this thirteenth worldwide meditation by a million people!
October 8, you were part of an event that included well over 17 million
people! Together we have served the planet well.
those who might be new to this process, having just found out about
this series of planetary initiations and energy accelerations....
this is an unprecedented phonemenon that has been taking place since
series of healing events are literally raising the energy of our planet,
which in turn are awakening
our consciousness to new levels of our personal and planetary potential.
This is preparing us with the potential to merge with
the consciousness of our very souls for the first time in recorded
history. This is indeed an exciting time to be alive!
is much more information on the initiations elsewhere on the website.
I will not repeat much of that here....but will get on with sharing
the amazing journey that 24 of us took to the sacred island of Bali.
First a few words of putting this journey
The planet has now reached the mid-point
of the initiation process and we are just beginning to integrate the
energy of the soul in the
heart space for the first time ever.
this to happen, we must prepare the womb space of the soul in our
bodies. This womb space is indeed located in the lower torso and is
the area of the subconscious mind. What we have stored in that subconscious
for our entire known history is the accumulated memory of our primitive
we reach this mid-point of our process, we need to realize that we
have only integrated and experienced the more primitive parts of our
true potential. Only now are we being encouraged and supported energetically
to release that accumulated history and open to more of our potential.
We must, however, work with these rising energies and take responsibility
for all of the distorted energies we have stored inside.
is a time when all that we have held in the Shadow is coming up to
be healed. That involves our fear, shame, judgment and the unresolved
relationship with our emotional bodies. In short, we must nurture
and resolve our wounded emotional bodies. The emotional body is the
aspect of ourselves that will become the access point to the soul
- for we can only know the soul as a realm of EXPERIENCING life and
our divinity on a much deeper level.
we choose to remain in the wounded myths held in the emotional body,
we will remain locked in the prison of our own fear - separate from
our souls and our true divine nature.
that we do at Children of Light involves teaching people how to prepare
and work through these layers, moving into a sense of freedom and
empowerment that they have never known. We literally watch 100
per cent of our clients make remarkable expansions within this nurturing,
fifteen years of establishing our healing center in New York, we are
now committed to making more of our work available to all of you through
the internet. That is the reason we are expanding our web site. This
shift is a response to what we feel is a VITAL need. So we are creating
ways to get this unique information and approach out to more people
around the world.
did we return to BALI for this next initiation?
planet is a macrocosmic reflection of each one of us as individuals.
Just as we are preparing the womb space of our subconscious at this
time, so is the planet. And it just so happens that Bali holds the
energetic configurations of the planetary womb space.
Batur and Mt Agung (the two most sacred volcanoes of Bali)
were scheduled to leave on October 1, the very day that Bali experienced
a bombing at the southern most tip. It was all over the news the day
of our departure. And every one of our 24 travelers decided to continue
with the commitment to go on this journey of healing.
we may not realize is that these events play a part in the worldwide
initiation for all of us.
we look back to our past journeys and initiations, it is interesting
to note that a similar tragedy occured within days of FIVE of our
twelve journeys! For instance, there was a bombing in Egypt just days
before we left for last year's initiation. A few years before that,
a group of tourists was shot and killed just days prior. And in 1997,
there was a huge fire that burned up three moutains surrounding Machu
Picchu just days before we left to go to that site for an initiation.
have come to realize that when the vortexes of the initiatory energies
open in these various places, it creates a major shake-up. However,
it is also important to realize that within the terrible tragedies,
there is also perfection.
- These shake-ups bring the world's attention to the very places where
we need to focus for the initiations.
Second - We need to begin to understand that we are affected in similar
ways by these initiatory energies and that our bodies are experiencing
We can begin to understand this when we realize that the energies
in our bodies (and in our world) begin to accelerate from the download
of energy in these initiations. In our bodies, the energy is attempting
to break up our old, defensive structures and chaotic symptoms are
created when we resist.
is vital that we begin to look at all of the events that are taking
place in the world as clues and reflections that not only affect us,
but more importantly mirror what is taking place inside each one of
us. We hold all of the archetypes that are in the world
in our bodies and in our consciousness.
have heard a lot about terrorists in recent years. We have focused
on "those other people" who are angry and acting out. However,
we might consider that the "terrorists" reflect the part
of all of us that acts out and tries to control or destroy all that
we do not know how to love or accept - within ourselves and in the
world around us.
process goes something like this - what I cannot love, I will control.
What I cannot control, I will destroy. This is the path of the ego
defense in fear and survival. It will never work. And it will never
work as long as we think of it as something that is happening outside
of us, and that we are not truly connected or affected.
the world is going to heal, we must each learn to take responsibility
for healing these aspects of our own lives. We must learn that we
can affect the whole picture, the collective consciousness, when we
shift our own personal resonance. We are just beginning to understand
by the way, things could not have felt safer while we were in Bali.
If you have been thinking about visiting this most amazing place -
do not hesitate! The people are amazing...though confused about who
created this isolated incident or why.
pictures give you some idea of the innocent face of Bali...
deal with so many challenging events in the world today, people are
often confused about what they can do. So often we feel powerless
to change the bigger structures in the world, with all of the corruption
simple answer is that we ARE very powerful, but we will not know it
by trying to control or get rid of what we don't like by fighting
and resisting. We will only heal the world when we begin to shift
ourselves from the inside...and then begin to act from the deeper
truth that our inner healing reveals. In this way we will not be able
to be ruled by the fear and shame that has kept us a part of the old
healing process is what is encouraged in the opening of the subconscious
and in the womb space of Bali at this time. This particular vortex
of energy began to open with a download from the Sirian star, which
is the essence of the Goddess energy -

is the number of the spiritual, inner connection (the soul). This
opening was most powerful in the month of October, but remained open
until the closing gateway on November 11, 2005 (11:11:11 - if you
do the numerology of the whole year's date you come up with the final
11). And eleven is the number of higher spiritual connection.
on to the journey...
people gathered from many different places to go on our twenty-four
hour flight to Bali. Not only did we take off knowing that two bombs
had just gone off within minutes of the airport in Bali, but we heard
that a category four typhoon was just 12 hours ahead of our arrival
in the connecting city of Taipei on our way....
all of that, we were off on what would be a remarkable and healing
time in a magical place.
preparation for the journey, Gabriel asked us to create a rod
of intiation. This rod was to be the focus of transformation
that prepares for the resurrection of the soul. The specific configuration
of the rod mirrors the path of the soul's integration in our bodies
through what is known as the haric line.

side comment before we get too far. There may be a number of terms
that are not so familiar to you in this follow-up. We are happy that
we will be able to offer more direct guidance and education about
all of these terms and how they apply to you as we create our new
Educational Forum on the web site in January, 2006. We hope you will
prepare your questions for this more interactive web experience!]
after our arrival, we were met by our tour director, Linda County
and Balinese guide, Budi. His warmth and love of his country were
inspiring. It did not take long before we are all one family...
a day to adjust to our new time zones and the energy of Bali, we were
ready to begin our adventure. We based ourselves in Ubud for the first
five days, the city which most consider to be the artist center of
days were full and rich with experience. There is so much I could
tell. For instance, we immersed ourselves in the culture, music, mask
making, dance and spirituality of Bali. However, to honor time and
space, I will primarily share the spiritual throughline of the initiation
that we were in Bali to lead.
Our first group meeting was in a intimate, but open space that looked
out over beautiful rice patties...
focus of our journey was enhanced by the fact that we were there during
Bali's most sacred holiday, known as Galungan. This is the ten-day
period when the people pray, asking all higher energies to connect
and bless them. They also focus on connecting to their ancestors (very
directly connected to the history held in our subconscious).
day in Bali was spent going to various temples for our rituals. The
first day actually took us to the most sacred temple - Besakih.
group in front of Besakih, wearing traditional sarongs
first ritual was focused on bringing the lower self up and the higher
self down to meet in the heart - the sacred marriage of our humanity
and our divinity. In this ritual we began to identify our life lesson,
soul lesson and intention of life purpose. These are the three energies
through which we will manifest and experience the soul.
first ritual was to set our personal intentions into motion, bringing
all of our focus to the heart space.
second ritual took place at Gunung Kawi.
group going down the steps to Gunung Kawi,
greeted as always by Balinese children
focus of this second ritual was to purify the heart space in a ceremony
of forgiveness and compassion. Moving through a configuration of a
yin/yang circle, we prepared the heart for the neutral energy of the
soul, also balancing light and dark.
for the yin/yang ritual of forgiveness
was interesting that we got many signs and synchronicities from nature
that we were being supported in our intentions. In this case, as we
were balancing light and dark a hen walked right into the space of
our ritual with two solid black chicks and two solid white chicks
(which I have never seen). This is a picture of them, though their
coloring being similar to the environment makes it a little challenging
the way we took the time to stop at many of the beautiful places that
Bali has to offer, such as this gorgeous lake...
spent the next day with a visit to a wonderful, Balinese healer. Though
many of the people on our journey are trained healers, we were all
most anxious to experience the loving energies of someone trained
in the Balinese approach. This particular healer had many of his herbs
growing all around his home - and he even walked a few feet to gather
bark from a tree for one of our group.
Linda County with the Balinese healer
also spent some time doing ceremony with the people of Bali. Because
of the bombings, there were hardly any toursists. Though this was
hard on them, we felt that we were able to see an untouched experience
of Bali in many ways.
third ritual took place on the edge of one of the two volcanoes -
Mt. Batur. The focus of this ritual was to bring in the energies of
the Goddess for the first time, preparing us to connect to a multi-dimensional
experience. This simply means we focused on bridging the third dimension
with the higher dimensions of the soul and Oversoul energy.
this ritual, we again used the aspects of the haric line called the
Upper Soul Seat (fifth dimensional awareness) and the Core Star (sixth
dimensional energy of our Oversoul) to bring in the energies. It was
a very powerful ritual for all of us.
these moving days in Ubud, we eventually moved to a remarkable hotel
deep in the rain forest of Bali.
hotel was amazing in that it did not interrupt nature. This was the
Olympic size pool that blended in so well with nature and simply overflowed
at the far end.
other facilities were built right into nature, such as our meeting
can see the jungle through the windows at the far side,
as it comes right up next to the building on every side.
secluded paradise provided a place halfway between the mountains and
the ocean for us to perform the worldwide meditation. This was important,
as we wanted to be in the center heart space (halfway between the
high self and the lower self).
awoke at 4:30am Bali time and were all in place to join with all of
you for sunrise...the rising of the soul/solar energy. Imagine knowing
that millions of people were gathering to join with us! It was powerful
this ritual we focused on joining all of the intentions of the soul
experience into the human experience for each and every individual
in the world. This gave a focus to the millions of other people gathering
around the planet with the same intention. We imagined and intended
a world of oneness and unity, knowing that it can only be created
as we work to manifest the oneness and unity within ourselves.
out to the world with our intention
that day we all forced ourselves to leave this remarkable place...only
to find more of the beauty of Bali waiting for us. The next three
days were spent at an oceanfront resort.
spent time resting, integrating all that we had set in motion so far,
snorkeling, going out to be with the dolphins and enjoying our time
in this paradise!
you read carefully, there was always humor to be found!
Balinese live very much in the integrated oneness of different perspectives.
They welcome world travelers with open arms. We created great friendships
with everyone - even our drivers.
fifth ritual was performed at Tirta Ganga, a water temple. This is
where we accessed the feminine energy of the Goddess and prepared
to enter the void or womb space - accessed in the center of the heart
through a spiral configuration, we set our intention of joining the
innermost heart with the outer world and vice versa.
were many depictions celebrating the feminine connection in Bali
the sixth ritual, we sat for a number of hours as Robert channeled
Merlin. For those who are not familiar, Merlin is a being that has
had many powerful incarnations. The most familiar to most is Merlin,
the magician. In that lifetime he was actually the head of a mystery
school in present day UK.
is now in charge of bringing intiates into the highest levels of initiation
on the planet. For this ritual, Merlin came through to give each of
us an individual initiation and message. It was a transforming experience,
as we were each touched and encouraged to take the next steps of our
was a ritual to set in motion some of the soul archetype that is ready
to awaken in each one of us, in the womb space that we had just prepared
in the last ritual.
then moved to Jimaran for our last day and a half - the very location
of the bombings days earlier. Here we held our final ritual - to bring
an intention in the powerful initiation energies of this vortex for
a soul-connected world!
this ritual we went to a gorgeous temple on a seaside cliff.

to give you an idea of the tremendous height
through a model of the rod of initiation to activate the entire haric
line, each person accounced with deep commitment their personal vision
and intention to the world. We also opened a space for the visions
of people around the world to be connected to these energies.
the end of this ritual, which ended well after dark, we gathered in
a final circle. We first acknowledged one another and the amazing
journey of rituals and intentions we were completing. We then looked
up into the overcast night to give thanks to the beings of light who
had been working with us.
was a moment of divine timing. As we looking into the cloudy sky,
one space opened up just large enough to reveal the moon. Believe
it or not, each person was able to see that the opening was remarkably
shaped like a heart!
we were complete, we spent our final night in celebration on the beach,
laughing, dancing, eating and celebrating one another.
is so much intimacy that takes place on these journeys. There is so
much time spent sharing and inspiring one another. There is no way
to take the time to relate much of that here. This page is already
very long, even with the bare bones of the journey.
I am including some pictures to do the best I can to share some of
this loving energy with all of you!
thank you for continuing to take these journeys with us. We thank
you for your participation in the world events of healing and transformation.
Please know that you are playing a vital role in creating a new world
of the soul connected human beings.
finally - feel free to let us know if there is anything we can do
for you as we continue forward on this journey together. We so look
forward to being able to share more fully with all of you in the new
version of the web site due out by January, 2006.
