You have walked far through the jungle to reach this place. You have sensed a presence near you for some time, just out of sight, watching you. You have faced your fears and now you emerge from the dark jungle onto a mountain top plateau bathed in bright sunshine. Below you see the ruins of an ancient city, Machu Picchu. You walk down the trail to an ancient aqueduct. Water has flowed from these stones for centuries. You cup your hands and drink the cold, refreshing spring water. You find your strength renewed as your fatigue vanishes. In the distance, you notice a large stone monument. You are drawn to the stone and walk toward it. You find it rests on a rock base and you sit down with your back to the stone and close your eyes. You feel a movement coming from the stone. You lean into the stone, enjoying the vibration that moves up your spine and out the top of your head.
You sense a shadow pass over the warm sunlight and you open your eyes. A large black dot passes across the sun, gently wafting down in a slow spiral. You watch in wonder as the giant condor circles down ever closer toward the earth. As it touches the ground in front of you, it transforms into a Woman. She is tall with wild dark hair, a cloak of condor feathers about Her shoulders. Tufts of white llama wool at Her wrists and ankles and Her skirt is of finest woven alpaca wool. Her beautiful ample breasts are bare on Her dark skin. A Puma walks at Her side, watching you. The Woman smiles and a name comes to you, “Pachamama.”
“This is my Stone” She says, indicating the large monument behind you. “Are you prepared for an adventure?” You nod and She encourages you to turn and place your palms upon the Pachamama stone. You immediately sense the vibration emanating from the sacred stone and find your body humming along. “This is the song of the Spheres, the sound of the universe, OHM . . . You resonate with the sound, adding your voice to the sacred OHM. You chant until you feel your entire being vibrating with the stone. Pachamama asks you to place your forehead against the sun-warmed stone. As your third eye contacts the stone, you are surprised by the intense electric jolt that passes through you. You sense your visionary eye awakening.
You turn to face Pachamama and She opens Her arms to embrace you. As She enfolds Her mighty wings about you, you sense gravity pull away. Pachamama has taken flight with You in Her arms. You gaze in wonder at the ancient city of Machu Picchu, far below you now, as you soar higher above the Andean mountains. From up here the mountains look like the back of a spiny dragon. “This is Who I Am” She whispers. You continue to fly higher into the sky and as you look behind you, you see the Earth as a sparkling Blue-Green Jewel. “This is Who I Am” She laughs. You fly out past the planets and stars to the farthest corners of the Universe. “This is Who I Am” she shouts.
She takes you back to the beginning of time and space, you are a midwife to Pachamama as She births the universe into existence. “This is Who I Am” she screams. You follow the births and deaths of the stars and planets and catch glimpses of your own past lives being born and dying and being reborn. You turn to look at Pachamama and see Her eyes are your eyes, Her face is your face. “This is Who I Am” you whisper.
You find yourself back at the Pachamama stone. You find a gift for Pachamama in your hands. You leave it on the Stone platform. You find that She has left you a gift. You pick it up and hold it to your heart.
“This is Who I Am”
