As Hindus celebrate the Festival of Lights today, I reminisce about the days my Hindu friend first introduced me to the sacred world of the Light.
The Light fights darkness; the Light guides you; the Light protects you. The Light is where Divine knowledge thrives. And with complete trust and faith, the Light illuminates.
I shall begin my story on the Light about my trip to Nepal ten years ago. It was a trip of a lifetime.
I met my Hindu friend in the school I was posted to. I was randomly given a seat and she turned out to be the colleague sitting directly opposite me. We were from the same department and I assisted her in the same core curricular activity. We spent much time together. There were so much time in the world then for soul connection. The Universe put me in the right school and at the right seat. She began to teach me about the Light generously and I would listen. But, most of the time, the information would be like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle strewn all over the place; it was not easy to piece them together. I enjoyed her sharing but some things just cannot be taught easily. Our friendship grew and we decided to go on a trip to Nepal, much to everyone's surprise. Nepal was in a state of political instability and there was a curfew in place back then. We went ahead nonetheless.
The trip was like a romantic one. It was just the two of us. She continued to spend time connecting with me and pointing out all the magic in Nepal.
I had my very first meditation using a candle flame in Kathmandu. I was supposed to focus on the flame for twenty minutes with minimal blinking of my eyes. It was to tame the mind and focus on the light. Slowly, in my focus, I saw another flame emerged beside the original flame. That was the message I received from my first meditation. What was the significance? My friend told me that someone was thinking of me. True enough, my then-boyfriend proposed to me in less than a month after trip. Several years later, I found out it could have meant 'twin flame'.
When I brought the meditation to a closure, I covered my eyes. At that moment, I saw, in my third eye, a spacious place that enjoyed lots of sunshine and brightness. I did not know what it meant and let it pass. I eventually found out the significance half a year later. After the marriage proposal, we looked for a house. Like all couples, we sought to buy a flat from the government. We had to scout around. It was a rather challenging and frustrating time then as we had the intention to get married at the soonest possible. The chance of getting a flat quick was slim. Just as we were running out of luck and at the point of giving up, the house presented itself on our lap. My father met our neighbour-cum-housing agent in the lift. She was about to advertise another neighbour's house in the papers the next day. Bingo! In less than half a day, we decided to buy the apartment. It was so spacious at 2100 square feet. It was bright and sun-filled too! It was the same as what I saw from the meditation! We got married exactly 3 months later!
Meditations on subsequent days in the Himalayan mountain range illuminated Divine knowledge, angelic presence and blessings from the Ascended Masters. The Light is the passage of truth and knowledge; it brings us to our highest consciousness.
Unknowingly, my friend had initiated me into the world of spirituality. The pieces of a jigsaw were finally being pieced together slowly. Despite the political chaos, the trip was truly illuminated and protected. We continued to share other magical moments in Nepal that sealed our trip in eternity.
In violet love and joy,
