Welcome to Melody Tours
Welcome to Melody Tours, an account of my journey on this planet through my experiences with many different groups and the way I am learning to understand the “truth” of who I am. This site will not be here for very long as I will launch a new one with a different name in the new year but for now if anyone’s looking it will tell the story of all that I have learned about my many different aspects on this planet which I have done in a very scary and public way. Anyone who knows me has watched me get skinnier and frailer over the years and now as I recover from my latest tour of duty as a “wounded warrior” I need to make sense of it, so if it helps anyone else then I am happy to share my stories here on the actions page.
In my human world I am a travel professional with 30 years experience in the business, and have worked for many travel companies as an employee but nowadays I am simply “hands on” freelance. And I love it! I love the challenge of the unusual events and arrangements and I love the company that I enjoy when I travel with the groups.
But I am not just human, (none of us are) my spiritual self is a polarity integrator, a being that balances dark and light through our metaphysical field and grounds it through my physical body, and it’s hurts like hell. But energy is always moving, it can’t be stopped just like the journey we all have undertaken since 2012 so while I ready myself to move on again into a very new 2018 I will attempt to put what I have felt into a language that I understand, attempt I said!
In the meantime to quote the words of Hans Christian Andersen, “to travel is to live” and I couldn’t agree more!
My travel adventure really began in Israel in 1996 when, I accompanied a group of theological students to Israel, feeling thoroughly inadequate and completely overwhelmed, following a trip down the Mount of Olives, in a short but frustrated prayer I said thanks to God for taking me into the Garden of Gethsemane, adding that I didn’t understand why I was there at all and instantly turned to face a plaque that said “you may not understand me but you know you can trust me”. I was suddenly bolted to the floor by something powerful and deep within me and after years of working outside of travel I was back in the game all over again.
All night I had been up praying to a radio mast that I mistook for the cross, this sounds completely crazy now but I was so desperate to find the spark of god that I knew was in me that I stupidly thought I was looking at it. So when I began to see the sights I had learned about in church and I couldn’t relate to them the next morning I was so delighted to find that the garden of Gethsemane looked like I had imagined it that I opened my heart and said thanks!
The next time that happened was at the Musee des Arts Forains in 1997 when I took out my first MOOS tour and when I felt the “group” heart open with the beautiful music and fabulous gondolas that turned in the museum I simply knew I was being called again to do a job with this movement.
Then I found myself in deep snow in Southern Germany with a group of Model Engineers and realised that I was beginning a journey that was guiding me deep into myself somehow so I began to read the signs and synchronicities that came up through the work and realised that the earth was guiding me at a soul level to do some work with her.
Two years later, sipping a coffee in warm sunshine and listening to mechanical organs in the lovely setting of Waldkirch in the Black Forest I was completely hooked and knew that I had to get creative around these groups and become their “housekeeper”.
I have been doing this work ever since at many different levels…….
