~ ULURU ~
Recently we ventured out to the middle of the Australian desert to experience the famous ancient Uluru and Kata Tjuta.
Uluru is the worlds largest monolith in the heart of the Northern Territory’s Red Centre desert, 450km from the nearest large town, Alice Springs. It’s sacred to indigenous Australians and believed to be about 700 million years old. It’s within Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, which also encompasses the 36 red-rock domes of the Kata Tjuta formation.
Seeing these natural formations with the naked eye was so incredible. They really make you feel like you are on another planet and the ancient energy coming off them is sensational. Sometimes we found ourselves walking around them for hours at a time exploring... and other times just sitting and taking in everything they have to offer.
~ SACRED SITES ~
Uluru & Kata Tjuta are one of the seven chakras of the Earth, being the Solar Plexus. The global function of this chakra is to maintain the vitality of the Earth, and all living species. This wisdom is delivered to the rest of the world via the ley artery, the Rainbow Snake.
The Rainbow Serpent travels the path of life. It arises from deep beneath the surface of the Earth, and first emerges at Uluru. The Uluru magick is then transmitted to Katatjuta via a special song line which exits Uluru on its western side from the cave of the hare wallaby, Mala Puta. We walked around the whole of Uluru taking a total of about 4 hours. While walking around they have boards with stories about the different caves and areas of the rock. When passing by certain very sacred areas such as the Mala Puta, there are no photos or videos allowed.
~ ANCIENT CULTURE ~
Australian Aboriginal culture is considered to be the oldest continuous living culture on the planet.
Their culture revolves around 'oneness with nature'. Rocks such as Uluru, canyons, rivers, waterfalls, islands, beaches and other natural features - as well as sun, moon, visible stars and animals - have their own stories of creation and inter-connectedness. To the traditional Aborigine they are all sacred: environment is the essence of Australian Aboriginal godliness.
Out of this deep reverence for nature Aborigines learned to live in remarkable harmony with the land and its animals.
It seems there's a lot our modern world can learn from these intelligent people.
