A radical life changing story of how a woman walks away from her 'norm' seeking ancient knowledge first from the Aboriginal Australians and then finding her path being steered towards Tibetan Buddhism.
Waterfalls are breathtaking sites and Wallaman Falls is certainly one of them. Travelling with my new friend Selwyn we made a morning trip of seeing the highest peaked waterfalls in Queensland. After winding narrow roads along the mountainside we come to the top of the mountain to see spectacular views!
Someone told me that, due to the dry weather at the moment, the waterfalls might not be running… yet someone else told me that it’s running all year ’round. So, I was glad to see water! 🙂 Here’s a pic of the top of Wallaman Falls.
We walked 30 minutes down the steep ledge to the bottom of the waterfalls.
And it was worth it. Signs at the top of the waterfalls warned not to get too close to the water due to slippery rocks, but I thought “hey, I’d love to at least put my feet in the water” and so we started walking closer to the falls… but then we were stopped in our tracks.
Both of us, highly attuned to the energies of sacred sites, we felt a sense of fear. This fear was warning us that this land was sacred and, if we continued, would suffer the consequences. We turned around and sat on the rocks. Interestingly, we observed two different groups of people – one person sat at the exact spot where we stopped – and another went a couple of metres further – BOTH turned around and didn’t venture further. As tempting as going to the water is, the land is protected and guarded here.
There are SACRED SITES across Australia, so if you’re not sure ask local Traditional Indigenous Owners.
