The Tiger’s Nest
late Middle English (as an adjective in the sense ‘associated’): from Latin consociatus ‘joined in action’, from the verb consociare, from con ‘together’ + socius ‘sharing, allied’.
Consociates is the word I use for what are commonly called guides or spirits.
Tertön (Tibetan: གཏེར་སྟོན་, Wylie: gter ston) is a term within Tibetan Buddhism meaning a person who is a discoverer of ancient hidden texts or terma…
Terma, or Ter, (“hidden treasure”) refers to esoteric Tibetan Buddhist and Bön teachings allegedly hidden by various adepts (such as Guru Padmasambhava) for future discovery at appropriate times.
One night I was awake in the wee small hours feeling anxious about a few things when a voice suddenly asked me this: ‘if you could go anywhere on earth where would it be?’ (I am clairaudient and have been all my life.) The impression, or telepathic understanding, I received with the question was that I could only choose one place. Also it felt as if what, or whoever, was asking had the ability to make this manifest for me. I started thinking about all the places I could go and the next thing I knew it was morning. I had made no choice of destination before returning to sleep.
On my walk in the afternoon I was thinking about all the wisdom teachings I have been gifted, particularly in the last few years, and of my discovery of tertons and how this resonated so deeply with my life. I came to the decision that the one place I would choose to go would be the Tigers Nest in Bhutan…I am not a buddhist by the way. In particular I would want to visit the cave that is supposed to have a sword housed within stone. At first I thought I would stay at the Tigers Nest for seven days but immediately was informed I would require ten days to accomplish what was required.
When I arrived home and opened facebook to check something, a recent activity notification popped up for a page I very rarely visit. It is called The Sanctuary of the Silent Healing Power. A page that is mostly concerned with the life and teachings of Murdo MacDonald-Bayne, a little known spiritual master and healer from the first half of the twentieth century. Murdo, or Dr Mac as his students referred to him, had trained in the Himalayas. The page is also open to all teachings of wisdom and truth. Unfortunately there are only thirteen members of this Facebook group and the last activity was a post I made in November 2020. I shared a poem I had been gifted by one of my consociates, I shared it direct from my own page so hadn’t actually opened the Silent Healing page itself for many months. The poem I shared then was:
Grant me the presence of All in my day.
The Presence that knows I am but a ray,
of its fabulous, perfect
living light display.
I decided to check out the recent activity Facebook had notified me of. I opened the Silent Healing page and there was a stunning image of a Buddhist monastery in the mountains. On closer inspection it struck me that this was a photo of the Tigers Nest in Bhutan, the esoteric choice for my one and only place I would visit on earth. It could certainly be said that my subconscious was aware that the photo on the page was of the Tigers Nest but I would never have looked at the page if the notification for recent activity hadn’t drawn my attention. An amazing synchronicity in my opinion.
Something, or someone, had obviously heard my answer. Later in the evening of the same day I was quietly marvelling at this strange link in consciousness when I heard a voice say, ‘you chose well.’
Oh to be free to travel again, and to have the opportunity to visit such a stunning, magical place in the physical world. A place that resonates so deeply with my shaman soul. If the consciousness that asked the question of me can actually assist to make such a visit possible I have a true treat and miracle to look forward to.
