I was hesitant to write of it but, in the spirit of showing what can happen, and how you can be led if you open yourself, I am going ahead.
I shared these words within a few hours after I received them with a very close friend, and wrote a wrong word in the first line – and it is significant – so I hope he reads this, (he usually does). This has to do with the mantra, which I last expounded upon here:
First, a few facts. One, when I received this mantra, it was after about a five-week drought of waiting, and the sounds that I formed came from a deep place. I wrote long ago that the mantra had a Polynesian feel to it, not Sanskrit, which was unusual given that I have been studying, practicing and teaching Sanskrit mantras for years.
Today, I reached 30,000 repetitions of the new mantra and, on a whim, (not really a whim, I am certain I was led to do it by a higher energy), I decided to see if these sounds had any translatable equivalent in Polynesian tongues. I do not know any Polynesian words, (except “aloha”), and haven’t been to any part of that world. So, I used a translation engine online, which I cross-referenced with other translations to ensure accuracy.
Now, you can go back and read everything that I “felt” that these sounds meant, and the effects that it has had so far. All of that was prior to discovering this – today. The sounds that form the words of the mantra do, in fact, have Polynesian translations, and you won’t believe it when you read what they mean. I took the three stanzas, plugged in the definitions, and fleshed out the lines with a few words to make them read as sentences, (nothing that changed or altered the meanings or the order was added). So here goes . . . one of the most amazing prayers I have ever read. In English:
I touch the breath that is life.
O, Grandmother Earth, the space between objects that blows as the wind, sounds as an echo, and shines as the Sun and Moon.
The Ancient Power, God, is present – to which power I surrender and send forth.
That’s it. I have been, by a strict definition, been “speaking in tongues,” as I was speaking a language that was unknown to me. Or, you can just file this under “Incredible.”
Many Blessings To All…
