He started out in the morning in the mountains of Colorado, not knowing what this day would hold…
A long drive ahead of him, he started out the day with some Svaroopa Yoga – softer yin-like yoga that focuses on stretching the pelvis and spine.
Rush hour in Denver not too bad, but very glad to be clear of it, he continued on.
Stopping at a rest area in Eastern Colorado, he did some 8 Brocades Chi Kung. He was off the beaten path as it were, but some people going to the rest rooms (at the rest stop) gave him some curious glances. Better to plant a few seeds in their minds! Or they might just think he is a crazy person doing some odd movements in the sun behind the picnic area…
Not many cities to go through on the way through Kansas. Fortunately he found a health food store in Hays Kansas, a small town, where he purchased a couple of Kombuchas for the road – healthy caffeine was definitely needed for his drive.
He made another stop an hour later. This time stretching his upper body, doing some pull-ups in a little shelter and then finding some soft grass to do push-ups in. Then back on the road.
Flint Hills of Kansas – soft yet mesmerizing. He was listening to the audio book – the Red Tent as he drove hundreds of miles through the dry flat prairies. An amazing book about the female characters seemingly from the Old Testament – but written in a sensuous, female-empowering, intuitive, inspiring manner! It is almost from the perspective of a mid-wife, another reason he was enjoying the book.
He stopped at yet another rest area. This time he found a creek nearby. Peeking down over the foot bridge, he saw that the water was not that clean and also flowing very slowly or not at all – not a good place to do Water Chi Kung. Instead, he walked a little further and found a nice quiet spot to do Solar Chi Kung.
He first presented himself to the Ancient Solar Angel, having gratitude and a smile in his heart. Then he felt the Solar Chi wash over him. He kept the portals closed though, at first. Then he did the visualization with the hand movements to all the Solar Chi to pour through him. As he imagined the solar beam to flow down over and through his (light) body, he was gifted a vision of a deep canyon being filled with liquid light – first red, then orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and finally violet. It was beautiful!
He thanked the Ancient One for helping him to slowly remember who he was. Then he did some patting Chi Kung to wrap up his session.
For a moment there, he was light walking light. He was a being of light having a human experience. But only for a moment.
He was ready to drive again.
By the time he got into Kansas City though, he was very weary from his drive. A bath was in order!
