Sacred Glass House Mountains

Blessings to you all at the start of this year, 2018. The energies of this year already feel very different to 2017, so it will be exciting to see what's in store for us all this year.

At the start of each year, my partner, Lily, and I like to take a sacred journey out into nature and attune to the energies we'll be working with in the upcoming year. To support this process, we perform Animal Magic Totem Readings for each other utilizing the Animal Magic Deck from Transference Healing. These readings are a great way to support your spiritual awakening, empowerment and healing process by tapping into the shamanic aspects of the Animals, Elemental and Mythical Beings.

Our day trip started with a 2 hour drive from our local Gold Coast location, up to the Glass House Mountains located on the Sunshine Coast. These mountains hold deep spiritual significance for the Traditional Owners, and if you attune to their energy, you can feel the powerful, ancient memories of this place.

Our day started with a visit to Mt Beerburrum, a section of the park we hadn't visited before. Out of respect for Aboriginal culture, we never climb any of the mountains as their wishes are that the peaks should not be climbed by the general public. We instead are happy just to admire them from the ground and through the various walking tracks at their base.

Next, we discovered an unsealed road that takes you through forest between Mt Beerburrum and Mt Tibrogargan. We discovered a walking track just off the road which looked inviting, but our timing was unfortunate, with it being midday. The summer sun and heat was making walking unbearable, so we retreated to the Glass House Mountains Cafe for a quick bite and amazing views. Once we had finished lunch, the temperature was much more bearable for some mid afternoon hiking.

Coming back to the dirt track we parked the car. Our timing was in sync as I looked at the car clock - 2:22.
