It never occurred to me why I was thinking about my first trip to Sydney while landing. Even the following morning a walk, I was still thinking about my family history base trip in January 2000. 

It was here where the 16 year hostage began.

The story goes like this…

Once I returned from Sydney in late January 2000 my world fell apart because that April I walked out of my marriage...

~~

By 2005 not long after my arrival to Melbourne, my spine was causing me severe pain that had to I crawled on my hands and knees out to the lounge room each morning, as though a rod was being shoved up and down my spine with no relief…

~~

Then on the second day of the workshop I mentioned my story not realising why! 

I just told the story…

It wasn’t until later in the day that I discovered that I had a snake in my body,  and had been pretending to be my Kundalini and was morphing from the snake to a lizard like creature at the same time. Interestingly and unbeknownst to me what ever symptoms I had experienced, so did the others in the group too. I had actually been carrying this snake for 16 years.

Once Raghida removed the snake we did what ever she said to shake the remaining residue from our energy system, including dancing in the sunlight on the balcony. 

Finally.

The 16 year hostage was now … gone!!

I knew.

I just somehow knew.

My life will never be the same.

From that moment onwards.
