Adventures for the Soul
An Inca Prophecy

|A series of profound coincidences began eight years ago when I was living in my native Brazil. Many events took place in my life and I consciously understood the message that I should be in Machu Picchu, Peru, where my life would completely change. I journeyed to Peru with a spiritual group conducted by my Brazilian friend, psychologist, psychic, and channel, Luiz A. Gasparetto, at whose family's spiritual center I had studied metaphysics for fourteen years. (Shirley McClaine wrote about her experience with Luiz Gasparetto in her book 'Going Within' and, in fact, devoted an entire chapter to him). |
There, I was introduced to a light being, through Gasparetto, named Chuma, on my first visit to Machu Picchu. This experience completely transformed my life. Chuma was a High Priestess of Machu Picchu in a past life. She gave our group of fifty people many material proofs of her presence and the presence of other spiritual entities who live in Machu Picchu. Chuma said to us that the truth about Machu Picchu is that it was a "university" at which special young students cultivated, improved, and refined their knowledge of a spiritual science. She also said that when humanity is prepared, a record book will be found which will reveal all of the secrets of the past, present, and future.
After my first encounter with Chuma, I received a message to organize spiritual groups to offer the opportunity to others who dream of visiting Peru, to help them realize this dream, and enjoy their own experience. It was so strong and my heart was so open that I accepted the challenge and began offering spiritual journeys to my native Brazilians to the sacred land of Peru.
In 1990 I met Joshua Shapiro in Brazil who is an American who was visiting my country. We were married one year later and I moved with him to the United States. A whole new world opened up to me and something really interesting happened after my first arrival in the US. Chuma came to me and asked me to unify Brazilians and Americans in my journeys to the Andes.
It was while I was visiting Santa Fe, New Mexico that a book, 'Profiles in Wisdom' by Steve McFadden, came to me and there I learned about a Peruvian spiritual messenger named Willaru Huayta, who had visited North America a few months prior to my being there. Reading Willaru's interview help me to completely understand Chuma's guidance asking me to unity North and South Americans in my journeys. An excerpt from his interview states as follows:
We have been waiting five hundred years. The Inca prophecies say that now, in this age, when the eagle of the North and the condor of the South fly together, the Earth will awaken. The eagles of the North cannot be free without the condors of the South. Now it's happening. Now is the time.
Today I know that the people of South represent the condor, and that all the people of North carry the eagle inside. I feel honored to be just one to open my heart and break the wall between North and South, East and West, between lands and cultures, between frontiers.
When we journey together in this sacred lands and live through such a profound experience, we will carry in our hearts forever the best of our cultures which we shared, and this to me is how we can help to awaken Mother Earth and with our new awareness, become a brotherhood and planetary citizens.
