The Chapel of Roses:
In the year,
2000, I had the opportunity to travel with a spiritual group to tour the sacred
sites of Scotland. The elegant hillsides reached for endless miles, casting
shadows of remembrance and awe for the ancient peoples that walked this land. I
felt "home" to this distant country. The people embraced us openly with
love and generosity. Ever so often, I could hear the faint rippling vibration of
the bagpipes; their powerful breath touching the very core of my soul.
During the first stop of the tour, we visited
the Rosslyn Chapel. As we were unloading from the bus, a blessed being said to
me, " ELOIWA,
aren’t you going to bring your Harp into the Chapel?"
I was so surprised with my immediate response, as "oh, absolutely" fell from
my lips. Then my chattering mind began to resound: " ..I haven’t tuned
her. It’s so damp and cold. Will I be dishonoring the rules by bringing her
here?" Despite the clatter, we traveled together inside the beautiful
holiness of this ancient mystery.
As I was gently playing the harp on the carpet
of the main Chapel, a tour guide approached me with an invitation that would
change my life forever. "Would you like to play your harp inside the Crypt?"
My heart burst open with gratitude and disbelief. Next, I was carrying my small
Celtic harp to the soul of the Chapel. I laid down a blanket and knelt down with
my harp to play. Looking up, I marveled at the stained glass carving above the
altar of the Christ. I sensed that the vibration of this harp would awaken
something so deep in this place. The Heart of Rosslyn called to me. I felt the
love and light of the Angels gathering. In that welcome, I plucked one note. The
resonance of that sound echoed so richly, I thought, "surely .. surely .. this
vibration will break open the heart of this place". On this day, the songs that
moved forth from the harp were like a breath of heaven. As an intuitive channel,
this harp became a vessel of Divine love, pouring out to the ancients, to the
very roots of creation. I played with frozen fingers in the dampness of the
Crypt; and, she was perfectly "in tune". The magic of this experience opened
heart in infinite ways.
There was a moment, when my heart was bursting
with the waves of infinite gratitude. My harp was singing a song I had
never heard before, nor ever since. I felt like a sacred 'witness', simply
observing my fingers gliding over the strings. The vibration of pure awe
inspired me to sing out loud. Despite my awkwardness with singing, I
began to chant 'alleluia' with a heart rich with humility and praise.
Sitting now, in the stillness of the crypt, I breathed deeply in the sacred
wonder of this moment.
When I returned to the main Chapel, I was then
surrounded with my group. Tears were flowing from their eyes; and, I got to see
the softness and surrender in their presence. One after another, each divine
soul shared their experience of "hearing the celestial voices". They described
the voices as a "choir" that filled the Chapel and "all could hear". It
was in this moment of pure humility that I knew something very profound had
occurred at levels still untouched with my knowing. In this moment, I
surrendered at such a depth that I had never experienced before. There
was a divine purpose, I knew now, for my bringing me harp to Scotland.
The experience was birthed with a rare synchronicity of events - absolutely
COSMIC! I found myself in the 'heart of Rosslyn' on this day...to perhaps,
insert a vibrational key into a lock of timeless mystery.
We are the
divine heart and hands of God. We are the sacred instruments of peace.
We are the Key-holders, igniting the divine flames of pure remembrance:
that we are Love embodied.
The Ancient Ones:
Healing the Heart
Everything in nature
seems more vibrant in the tropics. The rich, cobalt blue waters of the
ocean, glistened with the sunrise. Greens were the deepest green and almost
surreal. Every wild flower on the island filled my senses with exciting color
and intoxicating aromas. Each morning on the Big Island of Hawaii, I awoke
to the song of the birds -calling me up for JOY. Their songs
activated me in such a mystical way -almost alluring me to a invitation of
I came to this island
for a healing retreat with a dear spirit sister, that guided us toward a sacred
journey that would be forever etched in
upon my heart! In this
journey, my heart was 'laid wide open' with the most profound vibration of awe..
of humility... of reverence .. of pure JOY and infinite love! How, my
heart soared beyond words to express, when I came upon my very first pod of wild
Suddenly .. in the
glistening radiance of the sun rays in the water, the dolphins emerged all at
once to greet our group. I floated calmly atop the water .. watching ..
just watching .. as these joyful beings frolicked all around us: diving deep, ..
spinning.. swimming in tandem... thrusting their bodies through the water like a
submarine and JUMPING high out of the water and SPINNING in sacred spirals.
I swam with my arms at
my side, fully embracing the invitation from these sacred beings to be seen.
I watched, as the Mermaids and Mermen dove deep, plummeting at great depths
right alongside the dolphins -playing, .. communing.. being. Oh, how
my heart LEAPT with joy!!!!!!!!!!!!! I listened, as the dolphins 'squeaks and
squalls'' and vibrations resonated in every cell of my being.
In my consciousness, I
was sending them a hologram of light: holding such love and deep appreciation
for their visitation. Just in that precise moment, a dolphin began to swim
toward me ... it was swimming up to my left side .. I noticed .. we were
swimming in unison. Just then, another dolphin came to my right side.
I looked over .. and they were looking directly into my eyes. I looked to
my right .. and our eyes locked ... I felt a vibration of love ..that goes
beyond words .. a sense of unity - that felt like being held in the
dimensions of Oneness. The vibrations began to emerge a pattern of a figure 8:
infinity patterns enfolding me.
We swam together ..
for such a long time. While, perhaps, only a moment in time
-expanded eternal. My heart, so filled with amazement and JOY -I
thought my heart would burst WIDE open!!!
The journey with the
Spinners lasted for many hours. Then, in a 'blink' - the entire pod had
I looked up out of the
water, and realized how far I had traveled from shore! I was definitely,
in another dimension of time and space.
I will Remember
their eyes piercing into my soul with pure love.. pure compassion. Our heart
connected in the One heart of all the cosmos.
It seemed that their
eyes were saying: " Remember that
you are pure love embodied".
"Remember that you are
pure JOY embodied".
"Remember, you are
here to love, beyond all things".
