Travelling with Michael 8, Northern Puglia

IMG_4387The story is by far not finished yet. After our departure from Monte S. Angelo we pay a blitz visit to Northern Puglia. Our first stop is Siponte, where we visit a beautiful white Longobardan church that just had been repaired, supported by Unesco. The church is famous because it was the Bishop of Siponte who was in the 4th century involved in the recognition of the apparition of Michael and the building of he Sanctuary on the mountain.

Travelling with Michael 7, Monte Sant’Angelo.

IMG_4412After a journey of several hours in which we slowly descend into Puglia, we arrive in Monte Sant’Angelo, at the Gargano peninsula. It is extremely cold for this time of the year, and we are glad that we have been able to book two rooms in the beautiful Hotel Sant’Angelo, just across the entrance to Michaels Sanctuary. It’s an Italian holiday: the sanctuary is full of pilgrims, and Mass is being celebrated all day through. (meer…)

Travelling with Michael 6, Benevento: Michael and Sofia

IMG_4346Our next stop is Benevento, a town halfway Napoli and Puglia. I knew of this place that it was the capital of the Longobardan Empire in Southern Italy, and an important place on the Templars route to the Adriatic. But much to our surprise the town had more to offer. (meer…)

Travelling with Michael 5, Ceccano: the Madonna of the Woods.

79DDE573-6705-43C6-B636-32CB5CE2BF4EDuring the following day we get some big surprises. We expected to go a church in the forest, but it all comes out differently. When we stop the car we are in awe for what we see. It is not a church but a small stone circle with huge stones. Stones like you find in Avebury and Stonehenge. This report is written by Agnes, since she worked most intensively with the energies on this spot. For more of her work see: www.moederaarde.eu (meer…)

Travelling with Michael 4, Alatri: meeting Christ in the labyrinth

13061986_1474195382605988_1268840003460133740_nOur next stop is Alatri, a medieval town with ancient roots, far away in history. Our intention is to visit the St. Francis Monastery, with a fresco labyrinth with Christ in the centre. We will be guided by Giancarlo Pavat, a friend from the international labyrinth movement, who was involved in the restoration of the labyrinth, and in the research that led to its interpretation. And what a moving visit it was… The labyrinth is sitting on a wall, seconded by a fresco that shows a lifted veil with ancient symbols of oneness: flowers of life, circles, branches, birds, spirals and circles, all in complete harmony. To me it seems as if they represent the alchemy of the soul on its journey towards the Divine. (meer…)

Travelling with Michael 3, Palestrina

 

wpe87We start our journey in an ancient feminine place, the Temple of Fortuna Primogenia in Palestrina, an hour drive south-east of Rome. During antiquitity there was an enormous temple here, built in seven layers on the pyramid shaped mountain that overlooks the valley below. Pilgrims were only allowed to go there step by step, and the top layer was reserved for priestesses who guarded the eternally burning fire: approaching and getting initiated into the Divine is always a long road to go.

Travelling with Michael 2, from Torino to Rome.

After tThe sword in the rock!he start of my journey in Torino the Michaelsline has unfolded itself before my feet (or let’s say the wheels of my car) in an extraordinary way. The main focus was the part south of Rome. But before my arrival there I visited some other places, and remembered some of the place where I have been before. (meer…)

Matilda’s 99th Church

img_4109 In my book ‘Queen of the Vatican’ the legend of Matilda’s 99 churches is an important theme. The legend, which is quoted in many books about la Grancontessa, says that she wanted to say Mass, and asked permission for this to the Pope. He consented, but only after she would have built 99 churches. That’s why she built so many of them, the story continues. But unfortunately after the 99th church she passed away. In my book I use the legend as an argument that now, 900 years after her death, it becomes time this her wish is fulfilled, and that women can become ordained priests in the Catholic Church. I never felt tempted to explore where this church actually was situated. Until, in 2015, I discovered that there is also a 100th Church built by Matilda, the Pieve di Sasso, a beautiful church in a forest near Canossa. An extended local legend tells what happened there. It made me curious to find her 99th Church. So I found it, near Suvereto in Tuscany. Time for a new journey… (meer…)

Travelling with Michael 1

FullSizeRenderLong ago, in the period that my soul journey started, I had some deep encounters with archangel Michael, both in my dreams and in my energy body. It deeply changed the direction of my life path. Amongst others it was one of the forces that brought me to travel through Italy. In my book ‘The smile of the sirena’ I take my readers with the hand on my journey of discovery about the connection between Michael, the double tailed mermaid and the labyrinth. In the years after publishing the book my journey continued and gained in depth. I visited several sanctuaries of Michael and other saints along the Italian part of the Michaels line that is running through Europe, for example in Porto Venere, Pisa, Volterra, Assisi and Gargano. Now, living in 2016, it is time to resume this adventure. In the month of April I am be travelling from Torino to Puglia, to continue the connection (meer…)
