I do not yet have a name.........
I find myself sitting cross-legged and naked except for a crescent-shaped collar of clear quartz crystal hanging from a gold 'rope' tied at the nape of my neck.
The collar covers the upper part of my chest to my throat, and is pleasantly cool against my skin.
I am alone.
The great hall in which I find myself is very long and rectangular, the decoration is utterly simple yet majestic and there are tall columns set into the wall like great pylons.
There is a soft blue light, not unlike moonlight, pervading the darkness, although the hall itself is windowless and unlit. However, almost all the floor is open to the sea below and the walls of the hall dance with the reflections from the gently rippling surface.
This is the source of the light.
I am filled with a deep sense of peace and at-one-ment with Mother Ocean. The moonlight She carries to me beneath the waves sings to me of Luna, and we three - woman, ocean and moon - are eternally entwined.
As I meditate upon this, a dark fin breaks the surface at the furthest end of the pool and cuts a lightning swathe towards me.
In seconds, a young dolphin beaches himself half out of the water, at my feet, nodding and beckoning. I take his glistening head between my hands and we commune together for a few moments.
I am aware of his great intelligence and absolute trust and understanding. Something very special passes between us. He turns and dives into the water again and I am at his side.
We swim quickly and effortlessly through the crystal clear waters, tiny silver air bubbles streaming behind us as we speed along. Although we do not touch, it is as though we are linked by an invisible film so that we move together in complete unison.
We break the surface briefly for air and then plunge through rainbow-hued shoals of fish towards the white sand of the ocean floor.
I am at home in his world: I feel as he feels, see as he sees.I rejoice in life and in the Creator. I am aware of the silky touch of the water against my skin, the almost imperceptible pull of the tides; the sudden changes in temperature where currents meet.
There is not a creature living in this inner universe that is my enemy. I hear the song of other dolphins; - the ancient sagas and gentle lullabies that they sing to their young.
I hear the booming resonance of faraway whales hailing us in brotherhood and greeting. The ocean is lit with phosphorescence which sparkles and darts around us in a million tiny points of light.
We swim thus for too short a time, it seems to me, until my brother turns again for home. We surface into the dim light of the hall, and before I walk from the water I embrace him with loving gratitude and give him a blessing as he leaves.
I stand and watch until he is gone from sight and then, walking along the water's edge, I make my way down the hall.
As I near the far wall, two huge double doors swing open before me, and I am caught in a blaze of light streaming forth from the chamber beyond.
As I walk forward I see that I am entering a room that is almost without dimension. Here, giant crystals stand, forest-like, pulsating with purest light.
I feel a surge of power coursing through me and for a second it takes my breath away. The collar about my neck is resonating with the crystals and I find myself drawn to a great crystal slab in a 'clearing' amongst this powerhouse.
I lie upon it and find that its surface has been carved in the very mould of my body. As I lie there, awestruck and suffused with love,wisdom and power; I see that within each giant crystal a being of light has appeared.
Their brilliance is such that I can barely distinguish their form. I am not afraid, I feel their reassurance and their encouragement reaching out to me.
But I am overcome with the doubt that I should be here at all....naked and ashamed in this holy place. I feel like a trespasser or an interloper.
One of the beings of light communicates with me: 'Do not doubt, seeker. Do not be afraid. It is almost time......'
Another asks me: 'What is it that you seek?'
I find myself answering: 'The Light beyond The Light'.
He nods slowly, and then asks: 'Why do you seek this?'
'So that I may bring it unto Earth to heal, to illumine and to nurture all life.'
Again he nods, and slowly motions for me to rise.
I see before me a huge crystal, the only one without a shining brother standing within.
The being of light waves me towards it and as I reach out my hands to touch its perfect surface, I am drawn inside; - into the very heart of it.
For the first time I begin to see the others clearly, and it seems to me that they are all familiar faces.
But my mind is becoming so suffused with crystalline energy and the enormous power generated that I cannot really be certain of anything anymore.
From a long way away. so it seems, I hear them say that from now on - although they shall be watching over me with love and tenderness - the journey to The Light beyond The Light is one that I must make alone!
