Advanced Tantrika & Teacher
"Queen Love leads us in engaging with the immediate urgency of being alive. Her Tigress gait leads us thru the jungles of sacred abundance, by a masterful prowess to hunt for love in all of its glitter and fur, to jump and bite thru into the tender fire source of juice and joy. Again & again, leading thru the ancient gateways of the eternal lesson: to hunt and ravish our hearts desire until we have finally found our greatest belonging - ourselves, lying naked and delicately alive on the fertile ground of truth."

MY STORY: The Queen of the Forest and the Wish-fulfilling Jewel Flower
"Rei Jagube e Mamae Rainha - From the Forest across to the Sea.
I am the Flower of the Waters and all wishes fulfilled through me."
I have never been to Brazil or Peru, yet I first did Ayahuasca 23 years ago. Back then, people only whispered about it and it was not commonly known about as it is today. Generally then it was said that once you had heard about it three times, she was calling you. I hadn’t been “called” to do it the first few times I had heard of it. It wasn’t until I had a serious ‘health opportunity’ that I said yes and took the dive.
In this first medicine journey, I was taken up to higher vibrational realms, up to the Fountains of Bliss & the Flood of Ineffable Light. I found the Source Creation Light that I had been in Soul Communion with several years before in my NDE. Except this time, instead of being fully immersed into the full body orgasmic(x1000 voltage) heavenly light from crown to toe, blinded and bathing in pure light, this time I could open my eyes into the light and see into the most wondrous visions that I had ever hoped to behold.
I gasped. I shook. I wept tears of great joy as I communed with the Light once again. I was shown indescribable beauty and color. I longed to stay in this place and never leave. I would then be suddenly brought back to the place where I began, the human perception plane that I had come to know, and it seemed a shadow realm by comparison.
I would plead to be brought back “up”, and I was told that I must imitate the ecstatic energies, the breath and sound that had ripped through me to bring me up before. I was told I must vibrate “like a Hummingbird”.
So I did. I gasped, energetically convulsed by body in wave-like motions, heaving my chest upwards, breathing a very particular way and imitating the strange soul language that had come thru me before…and I ascended back to that plane. This happened again and again and again.
So I continued down the path of Ayahuasca, hand-in-hand with the Queen of the Forest the medicine’s Queen Teacher, for many years and over a hundred journeys. She was in me. She is in me. She is a part of my deepest Soul. She is encoded in my cellular DNA. She is the true “Mother/Mama” in me.
As I have many Soul parts, it was she who I had needed back in place in my field, that I may truly live and feel alive and in joy. Truly now, “I am at play in the fields of the Lord.”
She taught me Yoga, pranayama, mudras, Soul Language, healing modalities, deep prayer and patience. She offered me visions and transmissions as she brought me to the Holy Love Source again and again.
When embarking upon my first Yoga Teacher Training in 2003, I realized, “Oh, you call this that I am doing ‘pranayama’ or ‘this is what you call mudras’ and ‘this is what you call kundalini yoga’ and so on. The outside world already had names for that which she had imparted upon me.
Of-course I learned that makes perfect sense because at the base of the Tree of Yoga, where all schools of yoga and their modern day branches emerged from is Stone-age Shamanism.
That means, once upon a time, people just like us, ate & drank the plant medicines and their eyes were opened, their souls revealed. They also had their deep Tantric and Yogic transmissions showing them the timeless ascension ways to reach the stars and heavenly realms. These Stone-Age Shaman & Shamana transmissions would be passed on orally and then written down into Sutras and so on. All fruit of the Tree is for our timely understanding.
“Shall Time’s best jewel in Time’s chest lie hid – or who its’ beauty shall forbid?”
"Namaste, I want to once again express my deepest gratitude for your guidance to a beautiful far away space of such spiritual enlightenment. You have indeed drawn upon the vast pallet of metaphysical consciousness from the ancient world to compose a beautiful new world ritual that magically unifies all elements of its diverse origins. Through your enlightened presence and creative improvisations at each sacred enactment, this beautiful ritual appears to evolve and lyrically transition through so many memorable experiential phases. You certainly have opened the door to a magical world beyond. I would be so deeply honored to be invited to explore further...." :RA
