September 20 to September 25, 2018

North Viet Nam

Day 1 – Thursday, September 20, 2018 – The Journey started from 09:00 the bus ride from Heerhugowaard to Alkmaar than the train to Schiphol Airport. First stop was to the bank to exchange 500 Euro’s to Viet Nam Dong – 11,000,000. Strange to have such an amount of money in my wallet – the illusion of being a millionaire.


The flight with Cathay Pacific Airways, Amsterdam 13:10 to Hanoi 06:20 local time, seat 60 C, was very comfortable and well taken care of everyone that was seated in the airplane. Good vegetarian meals (2) but somehow, I had some pain in my stomach which later gave release via the bowels. Good to get rid of tensions which had gathered in the subconsciousness towards the consciousness.

Personal note: The spiral movement via the Tzolkin Calendar of Tone 4 (self-existing to define the form via measurement of action) resonates in the center with Chicchan, Red Serpent (follow your instincts and body wisdom which vibrates on the personal galactic pathway of the North – Higher Self with Divine Guidance) plus the Imix, Red Dragon which resonates on the Personal Galactic Pathway in the center, Tone 13 of Coming Home to giving birth to start a new beginning of Ancient Trust within Ancient Waters. Also, this had in the South – Cib, Yellow Warrior of Divine Intelligence and Inner Guidance which is the Personal Year vibration for Carla. All within all a listening to intuition why the decision and step was made to go to Viet Nam on this group journey for 21 days.


Day 2 – Friday, September 21, 2018 – Arrived the next day at Hong Kong. A large airport with good transportation from platforms via a metro train system. It was clear how to follow the instructions. Here is were I first met two young people (around 23 years of age) that were also in the group of 30. It was there first group journey and we had a relaxing conversation together.   Felt very good to greet them.

From Hong Kong (08:40 hours) to Hanoi (09:55 hours) with Dragon Air (Cathay Airways), a smaller airplane, Seat 36 G. We were met by Elly (Fox guide) and Thamh (guide from Buffalo Travel) to drive with two Vietnamese bus drivers to the Hotel in Hanoi. A very nice temperature of 35 degrees Celsius with some Humidity welcomed us all. Elly explained a few things along the way about finances and to drink lots of water during the journey plus 1 can of Cola everyday. Enjoyed the open space to shower and meditate in Room 226 of Hoa Binh Hotel before the welcome diner in a Restaurant.


The positive flow of traveling with a Tourist Agency is that there is no stress involved for looking for transportation to the Hotel and the check-in. It all is arranged beforehand.


A good flow was at the diner with the 30 people of various ages that traveled together. We first paid for the entrance fees that we were going too plus the tips everywhere plus for the two bus drivers and Thamh. The bus drivers had arranged that we could buy soft drinks, water and beer in the Bus. Along with this we were offered to take part in sharing meals (mostly lunch and dinner) for the journey of 19 days of the amount of Euro 160,00. Seems like a very small charge compared to what we would pay here in The Netherlands. Excellent vegetarian meals for myself and for others, meals with fish, pork and beef etc. The breakfast at every Hotel was enormous offering all kinds of variety for all countries and there eating habits.


Personal note: This was in the flow of Cimi, White World bridger to release what no longer served and along with an opportunity to go into the flow of Wholeness within One. For me this was a lesson and development in allowing and surrendering to a group flow. Great to meet group members during dinner and exchange conversations to get to know each other. Beautiful heart connections were shared.


Day 3 – Saturday, September 22, 2018 – Equinox – Tone 6 resonating the organization of balance within equality.

Thamh, the Vietnamese guide, explained the tradition of the Equinox in his country which is mainly a feast for children shared with their parents. A special cake was made for this and this feast lasts for 9 days.

After breakfast, we traveled through the city by “cyclo” a bicycle taxi – noticing the old quarters and street life in Hanoi also going through the Market as well. My first feeling here was of decadency – sitting here looking around the city. Later I realized it gave someone an opportunity to work and share his city with a wonderful smile to go along with it.

By bus we went to visit the Mausoleum of Ho Chi Minh Complex. This was very well organized and structured. I could feel the protective bubble field before we entered the Mausoleum were many guards where present. A deep silence emerged. Elly had explained before hand that this was not the wish of Ho Chi Minh he would have rather be cremated but the community decided otherwise in honor and respect of his achievement for the people and the country. After this we had some open space to explore the premises. I was lead to a pathway of various trees where I could feel the silence of a meditative state with every step that I took. Than from here I visited the home where Ho Chi Minh stayed in. Very simple and a great reflection of the inner soul of this man. From here most of the group went to the temple or pagoda that was also on the grounds. Whilst walking on the steps towards this I also experienced a deep connection with this sacred place.


Once again in the bus we went to the Prison were many where mistreated which I did not enter as the vibes here guided me to stay away. I sat in silence with Elly and Thamh as the previous vibrations called to be integrated in self remembrance.


We than all had a gorgeous lunch at a restaurant where once more I was surprised by the talent of cooking vegetarian food in Viet Nam.


We than went to a Water Puppet Theater show. Especially the precious classical music was very meditative and supportive in this step by step accomplishment of Manik, Blue Hand and healing qualities. The Ancient History Story was very impressive but went so quickly that I could not catch what was being related.  On the other hand, later in meditative state in the Hotel Room able to understand the core of it. The Ancient Waters that were guided by the human hands that bridge, mend, support and lend is one of the main aspects of the heart that flows so well in this country amongst all the people who live here along with the tourists that visit here. It touches All very deeply in this sharing of feelings and mind state.

In the evening strolled along the streets. Photo taken by Bert Schaeffer

Day 4 – Sunday, September 23, 2018 – Tone 7 to be inspired as a channel to align with Source from Pure Heart Love in Harmony of Universal Consciousness and Unconditional Love.

We left Hanoi to travel by bus (4 hours) to Halong Bay to go on a Emeraude Cruise. Having a short stop along the way and visiting a Pearl Oyster Establishment. Amazing to watch how this is done.

The environment and nature of the countryside with its artistic rock formations are fascinating. We arrived in the afternoon to go on board. I could see various figures in the stones especially of Ancient Ones.

We had a great lunch on board whilst the ship was sailing along the waters. It certainly gave a spark of enjoying the peaceful waters of innocence and calmness.


In the late afternoon, some of the group members also took the opportunity of canoing as well to go to a pearl oyster farm in the middle of the sea.


We had a wonder diner and watched the sunset on deck to later sleep in the motion of the waves.

Personal note: The name of the cruise ship “Emeraude” reminded me of the gemstone “Emerald”. Called the “Stone of Successful Love,” Emerald opens and nurtures the heart and the Heart Chakra. Its soothing energy provides healing to all levels of the being, bringing freshness and vitality to the spirit. A stone of inspiration and infinite patience, it embodies unity, compassion and unconditional love. Emerald promotes friendship, balance between partners, and is particularly known for providing domestic bliss, contentment and loyalty. It was dedicated in the ancient world to the goddess Venus for its ability to insure security in love. [Melody, 257][Hall, 126][Ahsian, 148][Gienger, 36][Mella, 84]


Day 5 – Monday, September 24, 2018 – Tone 8 harmonizing in integrity.

On board, the “Emeraude” we woke up early (06:00 hours) to see the sunrise amongst the love of these natural surroundings. Some people of the group were also up as well to take some photographs. Personally, I am not one to take pictures but certainly enjoyed the professional enthusiasm of group members in this. Always love it when artistic talents come forward.

We enjoyed the tai chi lesson that was given to greet the sunrise of the day as well via a woman teacher. The grace and beauty of her movements were very inspiring.

After this coffee and muffins were served seeing we were going to have a brunch on board later in the morning. There was also an opportunity to go by a small boat to a beach where we could swim in the salty sea there. Some others of the group climbed one of the rocks to take a view from there. Really enjoyed the relaxation of swimming in these warm waters.

After a nurturing brunch, we went off board of the cruise ship to travel by bus (4,5 hours) to Ninh Binh. We drove along rice fields, tobacco plantations and small vegetable farms.


Along the way we stopped for a small boot ride through the country side. The Woman peddled the oars with there feet and we also went through a cave as well. An harmonizing feeling within was felt as we flowed over the river here with many lotus flowers around us plus some butterflies and seeing goats along the rock formations and buzzards to guide our way.

The only negative vibrations were that the woman we were in the boat with was doing her up most to sell her goods in every possible way. At the end before we returned to the starting point I was in a state of going into an aggressive action when she finally handed over her goods to another boot to a woman there to be able to sell the goods. On the way, back I just ignored her totally which was the only means of releasing the aggression inside myself towards her.


We than went onwards by bus to arrive at Ninh Binh “Hoang Son Peace Hotel” to have dinner together. It also had a lovely swimming pool on the third floor were many of us had a swim or relaxed in the waters to meet and greet each other. The swimming pool was build outdoors of the building so the climate was warm and comforting as well. We could hear children and others celebrating the feast of equinox.


In meditation in the evening in my room the intention was one of forgiveness and compassion to support this purification via the emotional universal waters. I could feel once more the balance being restored on all levels.


Day 6 – Tuesday, September 25, 2018 – Full Moon – Tone 9 to realize the pulsation of intention of loyalty of the Heart in all relationships.

We traveled from Ninh Binh via Tam Coc to Vinh (4 hours bus ride).

In the early morning, I went to swim in the Pool once more to welcome the Full Moon messages. After this I went to have breakfast seeing we did not leave here until 10:30. Some of the group members went by bicycle along the countryside together with Thamh, the Vietnamese Guide.

Together with Elly, the Fox guide and Bert, one of the group members, we went by bus to Vinh. Here once again the woman where up to sell their goods and massages. Elly and I made it clear we were not interested. Bert allowed one of the woman to massage him. She was very good in doing this. We than met the others who came back from the bicycle journey and their great stories.

From here we went to walk to the Vinh Buddhist Ancient Pagoda. I was attracted to go inside to attune and align with the singing bowl there. I asked permission of the bowl and played it. After this I went into the garden where the Buddhist lived and worked. It was a very peaceful surrounding to be taking steps through the gardens there. It reminded me of a previous life.


After this we had lunch with the group at a restaurant. We than went for another boat ride through landscapes of rice fields and steep rock walls.


We than went further by bus to arrive at the Hotel “Saigon Kim Lien Resort” in Vinh. We all had a lovely dinner afterwards a gratitude environment for a swim in the pool near the beach. Most of the group members where in the pool and we had some conversations.


Had a good meditation in the evening with deep healing on various levels and a great sleep.


Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude.
