Dec 2014: A change is as good as a holiday!

As the curtains close on yet another year, I am filled with gratitude for all of the wonderful people in my life – including all of you!

Since its inception, Spiritual Quest Journeys has brought the most beautiful souls into my life. Many of you have become close friends and we have shared some remarkable journeys together. It therefore gives me great pleasure to announce some changes within Spiritual Quest Journeys.

As many of you know, for the past 2 years, I have taken my intuitive coaching and energy work deeper and have been studying with David Morelli (USA). Whilst I have been coaching and mentoring for many years, I took the decision this year to focus more on my coaching practice and have developed the Quest Leadership site dedicated to this, namely and will focus primarily on Executive coaching with my packages although am still available for ad hoc sessions as and when the need arises.

With this change, my monthly newsletters will take on a new format – the personal development section (previously included in the Spiritual Quest Journeys newsletter) will now only be sent out to subscribers of so if you have enjoyed them, please subscribe here In addition to Self Mastery articles and tips every two weeks, you will also receive exclusive subscriber special offers and a free gift on Mastering the change cycle. For those that would prefer to just receive the Spiritual Quest Journeys newsletter, you will still receive it monthly and it will focus primarily on the journeys and sacred sites.

You may have noticed that the Spiritual Quest Journeys site has not yet been updated with 2015 journeys. This is because we are in the process of completely revamping the website, which should be complete by the end of the year. In the meantime, here is a list of the journeys for the year and please feel free to contact me for further details:

PERU & BOLIVIA: Wisdom-Path of the Ancients 2 – 11 April 2015

With Journey Leaders: Linda Jordaan & Jorge Luis Delgado

Peru is steeped in ancient prophecies, wisdom and love that are vital for our planet during these transitional times. For thousands of years, Peru was home to some of the most advanced civilizations man has known.

From the wonder of magical Machu Picchu to the mystery of Tiwanaku in Bolivia, these ancient lands beckon one to explore….

Whilst walking the mystical Wisdom-Path of the Ancients, you will discover that The Andes is bursting with communities who are extremely loving and warm. These ‘Children of the Sun’ are true masters of life. They have deep wisdom, love and gratitude for all, on every level. This is clearly visible through their daily practices with people, animals, plants, the Cosmos and Mother Earth (Pachamama).

It is often said that a journey to Peru is like a journey into one’s own heart! Imagine yourself breathing in the mystical air of the Andes Mountains as you walk the wisdom-path of the Ancients, steered through time immemorial, as you visit many powerful places with your expert Journey Leaders, South African born Linda Jordaan, an Andean Tradition Initiate and Shaman and Jorge Luis Delgado, a Peruvian Shaman, Teacher and Author of ‘Andean Awakening – An ‘Inca Guide to Mystical Peru’.

This heartfelt journey is unlike any other! As you open yourself and walk alongside the Ancients through mystical Peru and Bolivia, you will attain higher dimensional awareness as new strands of your DNA activates within you that were previously dormant, bringing balance as the feminine and masculine unite within you. This mystical journey is one of further personal enlightenment from both outer and inner journey perspectives.  It is a journey of deep love, wisdom, understanding and knowing!

Journey Leader, Linda Jordaan, will perform the DNA-change activations using Keys of Divine Light, a sacred language brought into being for this purpose and timeline. Linda will also facilitate the group Earth activations within specific sites throughout the journey.

10 days / US$ 4 020 per person / 2 to 11 April 2015

Life in the Incan empire was measured by a thousand year cosmic cycle. This cycle was divided into halves, of which each was referred to as a ‘Pachacuti’. The Cosmo vision of the Andean world is the conception of duality that is in permanent opposition, yet complimentary and reflected in the principle of masculine/feminine, yin/yang, earth/sky, above/below, light/dark. The term ‘Pachacuti’ is also used to refer to the transitional time that divides each 500 year cycle, and is regarded as a time of great change!

During the 500 years of the 8th Pachacuti, the greatest spiritual leader of the Incas, Pachacuteq, ruled. This was a time of light, good fortune and expansion for the Inca Empire as it flourished. The 9th Pachacuti (the opposite side of duality) brought with it 500 years of darkness as the Spanish invaders conquered the Inca and the people lost their power…

According to legend, the time Lemuria was sinking one of the seven Great Masters of Lemuria, Lord Aramu Muru, was given the task to bring the sacred Golden Solar Disc from the Temple of Illumination to Lake Titicaca for safe keeping. During the Inca time, the Solar Disc was transferred to Cusco and placed in the Koricancha – the main temple of the Incas and remained there until the Spanish invasion, when it was returned to the eternal etheric city under Lake Titicaca. It is said that this sacred Solar Disc was used to receive light information directly from the Universal Mind Source, Viraqocha, at the centre of the galaxy. By entering the Temple of Illumination and opening themselves up, the Lemurians, and later the Incas, could access sacred wisdom…

We have now entered the 10th Pachacuti, which the locals refer to as the return of Pachacuteq and of Light, characterized by the manifestation of the feminine, a feminine in balance with the masculine, a time when the Condor rises and flies wing to wing with Eagle in the sky as they bring balance to the world.

Many of the world’s spiritual leaders, as well as indigenous teachers, acknowledge that the energy of the planet has shifted from the masculine energy of Tibet, to the feminine energy of the Andes and in particular Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. These are the recognized areas of new feminine energies entering the Earth and the sacred Solar Disc serves as a portal through which these new feminine, love energies radiate into the world. It is powerful Heart energy!

Now is deemed to be the time when we once again have the opportunity to connect with the etheric crystal city of Machu Picchu, the eternal etheric city under Lake Titicaca and the lost golden city of Paititi, and to tap into the Ancient wisdom that is ready for us to access!

“Where leaders go to get to the next level:

Finding a person that can be trusted to help you grow as a person and business leader is no easy task. Not all coaches are created equal.

 When my personal life took an unexpected turn, I knew I needed to seek outside help. Peta was the one I turned to because of her business experience, caring spirit, authenticity and ability to challenge hidden success barriers. She helped me identify areas of my life that were sabotaging my greatness as a person and business leader. She then provided tools to help me completely eliminate the blocks.

 Marshall Goldsmith, the World Famous Executive Coach, said it best in his book, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.“ To be able to go to the next level as a person or in your business you need a coach, mentor, or honest person to help you get there.”

If this is your need, look no further: Peta is the one that knows how to join you on your journey and move you to find the leader within.

Thanks Peta for being available to guide and challenge me. Keep making brighter stars in the world”.
