Yesterday i was very honoured to share some time with an Aboriginal elder called Wiruungga. What a character!
He came up to visit with a friend of mine. We all went straight up to the waterfall as the sun was shining! I spent the next hour sitting under a rainbow with rainbow sparkly drops of water falling on me and chatting with Wiruungga about his life, rainbow missions and building bridges of healing and love between cultures.
Wiruungga travels around Australia in a rainbow painted coaster bus. He loves to travel and visit the rainforests, where he collects seeds and things to make jewellery. He visits different Aboriginal communities teaching them about permaculture and bush medicine. Bridging the gaps between the old ways and the western world. Teaching the communities about gardening and growing foods. He also collects clothing to take into the communities and likened himself to an indigenous Santa Clause. And he really could be too!
It was even more amazing to meet him and hear about his life because my dream is quite similar. My plan is to get a coaster bus and fill it with fairy dress-ups, hula hoops and wing making supplies and spend time in the Aboriginal communities with the kids. I have always pictured the bus to be painted rainbow with sparkles and fairies. Wiruungga said that when I am all ready to get in touch and we could go in rainbow convoy! He can be sharing his wonderful gardening skills and I can be sharing magic, creativity and believing!!! So exciting!
We then came back down to the house and had some wonderful lunch. Wiruungga walked about the land looking for bush medicine. It was really amazing to see what he came back with! Lots of them are considered weeds! One little yellow flower that he showed me is good for the liver and he says he eats them whenever he see’s them. Then there is the blue top, which is prolific here. The flowers of that cooked up in a tea are amazing to prevent ticks getting on you when there is lots of ticks around! It was endless and I loved every minute of it!
I feel like we are kindred spirits he and I. He even has a hula hoop, a really big one and I would love to see him use it!
More evidence that believing works. There i was making wings on a sunny morning and like magic an inspirational fella turned up to get me feeling that my dreams are all coming true and that everything is so possible……..Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xxxxx
