WILLIAM THOMAS'S SOLSTICE AGNIHOTRA
My husband, Alan dropped me off at Inverness Airport really early in the morning. He was still recovering from his own travels to Ireland, where he was a speaker at a rewilding festival. With me preparing for a long journey away from home, and Alan arriving from a stressful Airport Trauma in Dublin, there was much tension in the air. But Alan delivered me very sweetly to the airport, as this is his way, accompanying me all the way to the final security checking point, beyond which he could not go. We kissed and parted ways. I knew he was with me on this journey, even though I was travelling alone.
Getting through security is an ordeal. I queued up in the long line of people to board the plane. I felt disturbed by the airport checks, and distressed by the prospects of my long journey ahead.
Standing in the long queue, I looked at the app on my phone, and saw that I am yet to listen to William's gift ~ his Solstice Agnihotra video. With the ear-buds in place, I pressed play. Instantly I was transported to the hill-top, in the early morning of Summer Solstice. As I listened to the song of the birds, the gentle vibrations of fire, the offering of ghee, the deep and calming chants of agnihotra, I felt the universe paused to listen with me.
I released my stress to the fire. Breathing in, and breathing out the rhythms of agnihotra calmed my pace. When I finally stepped into the aircraft, I felt light. Flying on wings of fire and a prayer in my heart, was the sounding note to start the flight towards my mother's country.
Thank you William for the purity of your Summer Solstice Fire. The note you sounded cleared the path of my heart to start a long journey of discovery to Japan. I am sharing your video here in the hope that it will reach those who read my blogs with their own long and challenging journeys, as an aid from beyond.
