In 2014 I went with the Kryon group to Rapa Nui, aka Easter Island. The Rapa Nui do not like to call it that, anymore than the Maori want their homeland called New Zealand - instead of Aotearoa. We Polynesians are a bit fussy when it comes to things like that. Most of you know our history and can sympathize.
Rapa Nui is the enchanted land of the famous Moai statues. There is no doubt how impressive those statues are! But for me it was being able to communicate with the ancients who embody them, that was powerful. It was being able to do ceremony with the Shaman named Pau at these temples, that changed me forever. It was meeting the Rapa Nui people, Polynesians that are my relatives, for the first time. It was having the great honor and privilege of being taken to a remote cave where several of these men did ancient ceremonial dances... dances I feel certain few will ever witness. If you would like to see this rare footage please check it out on my website:
When I arrived at the tiny airport it reminded me of when I was a kid and we flew to another island. The landing strip was so small. I loved it. There was a huge Rapa Nui man there with four other Rapa Nui men who were playing instruments and singing songs in their language. It was similar to Hawaiian but different enough that I didn’t understand it. I felt so emotional hearing them that I started to cry. Finally, I decided I had better get my luggage. While I was waiting there in another room, the musicians and the large man (who I later learned was Pau), came into that room and started playing music. Then suddenly our host, Jorge Bianchi, came to me and said, ‘They are here for you, Kalei.’ He had told them who I was and they were there to honor me. I was stunned.
Well, many of you who know me and have seen me at these events know I cry easily... When I was introduced to them and they hugged me, I was so overwhelmed with emotion. The magnitude of meeting my relatives who journeyed all the way from Lemuria (Hawai’i), to a tiny island thousands of miles away, would not leave my mind. They did this through using celestial navigation (we Polynesians are masters at it!), and communication with our Pleiadian ancestors. Can you feel the profoundness of it all?
At the beach on one other occasion, Pau introduced me to local people who were selling their handcrafted items. He gifted me a necklace with a piece of obsidian for protection, made by one of the women. The women were all filled with light in their eyes and their hearts were so pure and open to me. I melted to them all...
I knew in my heart that my ‘Aumakua’ Ancestral Spirits, brought me there for a reason, maybe more than one reason and I knew I would be changed forever by it. On the last day there our plane was delayed 6 hours. I saw the perfection in that as Pau came to my hotel in the morning and asked me if I would go with him to have my portrait done by a local artist who was well known. Wow, can you imagine what I felt like hearing that? In addition to the portrait, Pau was going to write a prayer in Rapa Nui for me on the second piece of tapa cloth he was showing me. Tapa cloth is made from Mulberry bark pounded thin and used in ancient times as fabric for clothing. He also said these pieces were made by a respected Elder especially for me. The piece that my portrait was done on had many holes and Pau told me not to fill them for they were the stars... where our ‘Aumakua’ come from. Since the entire experience took several hours I smiled at the handiwork of the Ancestors and the delayed plane.
On the last day of the Kryon Retreat, Pau and the four singers returned to our conference room and blessed us with more songs. I gifted each of them a sacred piece of lava rock, that were covered with many tiny olivine crystals. They were hand picked by me from a very far away location on the Big Island of Hawai’i, where there are thousands of petroglyphs. As I presented each piece to them, they were as visibly moved as I was. They lowered their eyes in my presence and I was reminded of how in ancient times, even the High Chief's would lower their eyes before a High Chiefess. This was because she was considered closer to the Creator for she could create children. Somehow I knew these men had all held that knowledge in their very DNA. Even now I weep at the memory...
Today I am thanking the Cosmos, the Ancients and the Rapa Nui for touching me with such love and light forever.
