Listen to an audio journey from Olivia, leading you in meditation to
the constellation of Taurus:
"To realize the harmony of Justice and Compassion, we
need to make a magical journey to the Constellation of Taurus. Know that these
signs are given to us by the Adepti, the Magi of old, so that we may relate to
the reality of the stars - not through the sciences, but through our spirits:
this is spiritual rising. Come. Approach the window of Taurus. This window
depicts a red-haired Goddess seated on a white bull, which is emerging from the
sea. Descending from the stars of Taurus, are 14 maidens who bathe in the ocean.
Now suddenly a sharp wind blows, and it throws the window open, and we are faced
with the constellation of Taurus. Gaze upon the 7 stars of the Hyades, in
V-formation - 7 of the 14 Atlantides maidens. Within their aetheric sphere is
the mountain of Hursag, Paradise of Creation. For what appears as earthly,
flaming stars, planets and space, is but a symbol of a reality beyond. Hear of
this mountain of Hursag, this paradise. Ninurta, the God, created the mountain
to save his people from the flooding of the Tigris. Hear the ancient words
written on tablets, about this God-king: "Behold now, everything on earth
rejoiced afar at Ninurta. The Lord made mourning disappear from the land, he
made happy the spirits of the Gods. Because of his Mother's great joy at his
great and heroic deeds, Ninurta addressed her: ‘O Lady, O Ninmah, because for my
sake you would enter the matchless land, the hill which I have set up, let its
name be Hursag, and you be its queen’.” In this magical world ruled by Ninmah
and Ninurta, only those who do great deeds are admitted. Pass through the
window, if you dare. Imagine yourself now, entering this land if you would - if
you would do great deeds. Enter and visualize what you would like to do in the
future, and see it as if it happens!"
