October 2 to October 10, 2018
(hopefully will receive some photographs from group
members later so they can be added here as well)
Central South Viet Nam
Tuesday, October 2, 2018 – Tone 3 – the bond of service. Today we traveled from Hoi An to Qui Nhon a bus ride of 7 hours along with various stops.
We stopped at a fisher village called “Sa Huynh” with its Palm Tree beaches and salt pans. Here many fisherman boots could be seen. It was nice to stretch the legs and enjoy the quietness here. We had a tasty lunch here.
Along the way we visited the village of “My Lai” in Quang Ngai where the local people showed sympathy for the Vietcong. On the March 16, an American group of infantries went to a small village to revenge the death of there several soldiers. The whole village was slaughtered and homes were burned down, 500 Viet Nam people, from which the half were woman and children. Whilst walking there the hairs on my arms went up and the Heart felt burdened that this could not have been in a state of normal sanity of mankind. There where a few tombs here where I placed some drops of the Essential Oil “Oneness”.
We passed a landscape of many hills and beaches along the way to arrive at Qui Nhon “Saigon Nhon Hotel”. The diner was one in silence as this day vibrated a tragic state that mankind could be faced with. Later that evening I went into meditation to send healing blessings to All that where involved in tragedies.
Wednesday, October 3, 2018 – defining the form of measurement via insight of Cosmic Order
This day we traveled from Qui Nhon to Nha Trang a bus ride of 5 hours. We went on a boot ride in Lang Chai where we could literally experience the life of a fisherman. Somehow being on the water always relaxes me, the movement of the boat and the tranquil water.
We had lunch at a restaurant along the way to visit in the afternoon the Cham temple and Pagoda in Nha Trang. Here the Islam, Buddhist and Hindu many ling-ams are placed in the temples. From the 8 Towers only 4 remained. We were requested to wear a garment which was offered to be in a state of complete cleanliness for the Thap Chinh tower of the North. Outside on the grounds once again drums were played with classical dancing showing a part of history and honor. Personally, I felt uplifted to be here amongst so many tourists yet it did not have any affect on me which it normally does in areas of hustle and buzzle.
We arrived at the Hotel “Asia Paradise Hotel” for one night. I had a nice swim on the rooftop of the building. A good sleep and quiet dreams.
Thursday, October 4 – Tone 5 Galactic Activation Portal of empowerment and radiance to gather inner and outer resources within this transformational eye of the storm and Friday, October 5, 2018 – Tone 6 of balance and rhythm within the Universal Consciousness of Unconditional Love.
We traveled by bus from Nha Trang to Phan Thiet a bus ride of 5 hours. Along the way we stopped at the Mui Ne sand dunes. A totally different area from which have been through before. It reminded me of the area where I live close too named “Schoorl”. Enjoyed the rest stop here to breath in this environment.
We also stopped at a Pagoda made of sea shells. A true piece of Art. The Buddha and other sculptures here seemed to me very artificial but certainly done with artistic hands.
Just outside of Phan Thiet we arrived at a wondrous location for two nights at the “Victoria Phan Thiet Beach Resort”. Such a luxurious Resort that is beyond what you ever dreamed of. I stayed in House 5 here for 2 nights of deep meditations, walks along the shore and swimming. My sleep was deep with the waves on the background. The first night there was a slight storm with rainfall but I did not wake up for this.
The next day I walked along the seashore and went swimming in the pool afterwards. I was also called to go into meditation here in the afternoon and evening.
One of the personal dreams were Lotus Flowers on each chakra that opened to its core. A feeling that started in the Heart and traveled to the Mind. A remembrance of forgiveness and compassion flowed like waves through all the levels.
One night I also had a dream of the surgeon that did the 3 transplantations of cornea on the right eye how we supported and influenced each other along with the tour guide Elly and her quality to stimulate and uplift the group during the journey. Deepest gratitude.
Saturday, October 6, 2018 – Tone 7 to be inspired and align the messages that are channeled via the Ancient Trust of the Birthing nurturing nourishment.
From Phan Thiet we traveled to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) a bus ride of 5 hours. Quite a shock from the location of the resort to a gigantic city with all its traffic. On the way, we stopped for lunch
We had a city tour and visited the war museum which I did not enter as inner guidance told me to stay outside of these vibrations. We also visited the famous Post Office and saw the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Once again, we had the open space to be on our own to explore the city and stayed at the “Sunrise Central Hotel” Room 209.
Personally, I had to get used to this changeover and went into meditation first seeing that I go into a state of rigidity and be stagnate. In the late afternoon, I went to the local market which was down the street of our Hotel. I had a great fruit smoothie here and walked through the gigantic inner market. In this matter, I started to ground and anchor myself in the city. Later in the evening I watched the traffic and people pass by before I went to sleep.
Sunday, October 7, 2018 – Tone 8 to model harmony and integrity via the communication with Spirit.
After breakfast, we went on a bus ride of 4 hours to visit Cu Chia and Cao Dai to later arrive at Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) again. This time the traffic was less because it was Sunday.
We arrived at the Cu Chi tunnels which this time I felt comfortable with it being in the forest area and the intelligence plus creativity of the Vietnamese during the war. Some of the group members literally went into the small tunnels to integrate this experience. I was very moved by the intuitive qualities of the Vietnamese and how they solved anything that was in there way for the safety of the family and support of the community. Everyone (woman and children) also participated in the building of the tunnels etc. Certainly, something I stored within to be in this state of support and development for the community and family. The strength of this Oneness certainly was an example for All.
From here we went to Trang Bang to follow a small ceremony in the Cao Dai Temple. This Sanctuary also honors all religions. I could understand the priests and priestesses in their mantra chant that they called upon “Brahma, Buddhist Masters etc.”. This temple was simple in its decor but none the less an energetic field.
We than took a small walk to visit the sister of Kim Phuc and the family home. Kim Phuc now lives in Toronto, Canada but still is very active in volunteer work. We first had noddle soup which is made of an old recipe of Kim’s mother. After this a video was shown of the story of the tragedy of the bombs that were placed here “Project Orange” which was presented by Kim Phuc. We than traveled in the afternoon back to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) which this moment I felt more comfortable with.
In the evening, I went with other group members to a famous Restaurant Pizza 4 Peace which Elly, the tour guide, had recommended to everyone. We had made reservations the day before otherwise we would not be able to be seated and enjoy our meal there. I had a tasty pizza with some Elder Flower Cider plus a sorbet of fruits at the end. All satisfied within and without. Had a good night sleep as well.
Monday, October 8, 2018 – Tone 9 to realise the pulsation of intention of the Silent Sanctuary of Abundance
After a good breakfast, we went from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) via the Mekong Delta to Can Tho a bus ride of 3 hours. This time the traffic was very hectic in the City.
Traveling to the Mekong Delta the environment around us was inspiring. Many rice fields and completely different simple home dwellings along the way. We arrive at Cai Be a water city where we went on board for a boot ride along the Mekong River. We stopped along the way to visit a family business where rice cookies and candies are made. Once more all is done by hand work not much machinery here. We also stopped at a family business where they made the round boot and old craftsmanship that luckily still exists.
Along the way fresh local fruits were offered to us whilst we glided along the floating market. We stopped along the way to have a special lunch. Here catfish was presented in a very ceremonial way plus other dishes of fish. I myself had a vegetarian lunch but certainly enjoyed how others were very happy with the dishes that were presented.
We also went along the Vinh Long with its canals and creeks. Some members stopped over to a smaller boot to go through the creeks. Apparently, it was a very hot float here as everyone was totally wet from sweating.
We than went by bus to Can Tho an interesting architectural city to stay 1 night at the “Muong Thanh Luxury Can Tho Hotel”. It had a lovely swimming outside and I enjoyed a short swim there before we all went to a restaurant in the city for the goodbye dinner. An donation envelop was handed out to the bus driver and Thamh with a speech from Elly. Later during the dinner Tamara one of the group members handed over a donation envelop to Elly for all her good deeds and expertise as a tour guide.
Had a good night sleep here and meditation.
Tuesday, October 9, 2018 – Tone 10 to produce the manifestation of seeding growth and development.
We left early in the morning to travel from Can Tho to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) Airport. First, we went on a boot ride to Cai Rang a floating market. This was a completely ride than the day before here you could see how the locals gathered their products for the day. Each ship had on its flag mast a symbol of the product they sold like Pineapple, Potatoes and Pumpkins. It was a gentle way to explore how these people trade.
We than went back to the Hotel to shower and change for the flight to Hong Kong and onwards to Amsterdam. This was arranged by Elly with the Hotel owners. We than traveled onwards once more this time we also went through a flooded village where the river had risen over the street, highway and sometimes in the homes. They did use sand sacks but unfortunately this had no result. It was raining quite heftily in this area and as we became closer to the City of Saigon the rained stopped. We were taken to the Airport for our flight at 19:05 to Hong Kong having seat 61 C now knowing who is seating next to me and around me. It was a good flight of approximately 3 and half hours. We arrived in Hong Kong at 22:40 hours. Once again, the instructions and the train ride was very clear how to get to the platforms for the next flight.
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 – Tone 11 to release that which no longer serves to liberate and integrate that which presents itself via instincts and body wisdom.
The flight from Hong Kong seat 61H – 00:15 hours to Amsterdam 06:40 hours local time of 12 hours went turbulent in the beginning to a smooth flight afterwards. Once more the service and comfort of Cathay Airlines was great. I slept a bit and walked through the aisles now and than.
Arriving at Schiphol Airport the luggage came very quickly so that I could continue to the Train that took me to Amsterdam Sloterdijk station. From there I went by Train to Alkmaar to go onwards by bus to Heerhugowaard. The temperature in Holland was mild about 19 degrees Celsius. Arriving at home enjoyed sending a message to daughter Jessica that I had arrived safely, then placed all the clothes in the washing machine, do some grocery shopping and looking through the mail as well. I went to bed around 9 p.m. Dutch time to adjust to the time zone here.
Deep Gratitude for a wonderful journey in Viet Nam with a group that made you feel at home and welcome.
