“Shekinah refers to a dwelling or settling of Divine Presence,to the effect that, while in proximity to the Shekinah, the connection to Source is more readily perceivable”.
After traveling thru Central America and Asia to mend a broken heart I returned home once again to the Sacred Mayan land that has been my chosen nest and refugee, Tulum.
Synchronicity led me to Shekinah to mend my broken heart, a very special stretch of land facing Tulum’s unspoiled pristine beach tended by a sweet archangel-like man who welcomed me to this Garden of Eden where he built a high rise Temple over looking the sea as a space to honor the Divine.
“Your heart is the heart of the universe” was the sweet man’s welcome message the night I settled into the bamboo thatched roof cabanita he built in absolute harmony with the land. An architectural work of art created using surrounding nature as muse. Yes, be careful what you wish for. This sanctuary was beyond what I’d envisioned as a place to heal.
I immediately felt sustained by the land, by the Divine Mother herself manifest in every lush green plant, in every blooming flower, in every passion fruit harvested on site and made into an offering by the sweet man to help me feel supported on my healing journey, and in every beaming ray of light caught sun gazing at dusk up high on the Temple.
My days consisted of meditating and chanting in the Temple, creating nutritious heart warming meals in the sand floor open air kitchen, walking on the beach, bathing in the warm turquoise ocean, tending the zen garden and, everyday at sunset, punctually showing up to my appointment to greet Divine Creator up high in the Temple, where I basked in the light of a glowing red sphere as it descended time and again sun kissing evergreen mangroves. I remember missing a few appointments as I got caught up in the illusion of life, while Divine Creator didn’t fail to show up once, manifesting his greatness thru breath taking sunsets, blissed out pelicans soaring to their heart’s content above coconut filled palm trees, and star filled skies.
Without noticing it one day I awoke and my heartache had vanished, as if the tides and ocean breeze had taken it far, far away.It was then that I realized how truly healing and powerful Shekinah is, and my heart, now as open and radiant as the Universe’s heart, was filled with deep gratitude, love and appreciation for it.
Half a decade later I continue to visit Shekinah and the family of light that now sustains the space as it continues to provide healing and connection, a piece of heaven on earth where Divine Presence dwells beyond illusion.
“I am burning up in fire
all that does not serve the truth in my life
I am burning up in fire
all that does not serve divine flow in my life
Simplifying my desires,
I’m on my way home…”
