Stopping briefly at the Giza check-
point, a military policeman swinging a
rifle clambered aboard, confronting a sea
of blank faces as silent as the shadows. I
think we confirmed his belief that all
Westerners were crazy. We continued
over the desert sands until, reaching
our destination, we were welcomed by a
temple guide swathed in robes of ochre
and a turban of Arabian red. The sleeping
city of Cairo lay behind us in the distance
as we gazed at the towering Pyramid of
Cheops, black and majestic against the
indigo sky. Rattling his keys like old bones,
the temple guide unlocked a wooden
door at the base of the almighty monolith.
It was warm inside. The vertical climb to

Thoughts have the power to change
things. They have the power to create.
An example of the power of projected
thought and prayer was demonstrated
to a group of us in Egypt in February
1999. We had arranged to do a planetary
healing from the King's Chamber inside
the Great Pyramid in the middle of the
night. As scheduled, we were woken at
1am to meet in the gold-ceilinged lobby
of the Mena House hotel. From there, we
were to be transported to the pyramids.
We had earlier agreed to remain silent
from the time of the wake-up call in order
to approach the King's Chamber and
our two hour meditation and projected
planetary healing with still minds. Lost in
individual reflection, we set off on a bumpy
ride through the cowled night in our mini
bus. Yasser, our Egyptologist guide, sat up
front with Mohammed the driver, both
men politely observing the vow of silence
the King's Chamber up an endless ladder
encased in a rocky shaft was challenging
for some. Inside the chamber, the energy
was tangible -- pulsating -- like the heart-
beat of a lion.
Sitting in a circle, we lit beeswax
candles and placed them in the centre.
Within minutes, the dim lights were
switched off at ground level by the guard
and we were plunged into a pitch black
void. It was 2am. We had two hours
alone and undisturbed to project healing
energy to Mother Earth.
After toning the sound of OM for
a while, we listened to our echoes
reverberating through centuries of stone
before beginning our projection, each
individual creating their own process of
extended healing. For a while, I felt as if
my personal energy vibration was spinning
out of control and momentarily lost touch
with the group, the place and the moment.
Then, like a shell tossed about in an
ocean of time, it was as if I'd been hurled
into outer space and found myself floating
along the Milky Way, past the three stars
in Orion's Belt, the third star slightly off
centre like its earthly counterpart, the
Oblivious to how long I remained
suspended in time and space, I eventually
felt the magnetic pull of planet Earth
drawing me back, like a fisherman
hauling in his catch. Returning to what
appeared to be a lifeless circle of bodies
on the bedrock of the King's Chamber,
I gently guided the group back to the
consciousness of the present moment.
Then as a group, we mentally harnessed
the intense force inside the chamber
and projected it with healing intention
through the pyramid's apex to the
war zones of the world, the ravaged
rainforests, polluted waterways, our
diminishing wildlife and to the minds of all
politicians. Everyone concentrated intently,
supported by the extraordinary energy
inside the pyramid itself.
When the lights were eventually
switched back on, it seemed impossible
that two hours had passed. Wordlessly,
we began our steep descent, finally
crawling out into the Egyptian night,
greeted by excited chatter from Yasser,
Mohammed and the temple guide. (The
military policeman remained in the bus,
clutching his gun).
Yasser hurried over to us. "Look! Look
at the moon! Look what you did!"
Surrounding the moon was a huge
circle, taking up most of the sky, iridescent
and clearly defined.
"It started as a tiny ring that formed
when you began chanting," he said. "We
watched it grow. It's been expanding and
getting brighter and brighter ever since."
Mohammed ambled over, rolling his
eyes. "What you do up there?"
Rooted to the spot, we gazed at the
enormous ring around the moon. As we
stood there, all eyes riveted towards the
phenomenon in the night sky, we watched
it slowly dissolve and disappear. Our
temple guide gesticulated excitedly and
Yasser translated. "He said never, ever has
he witnessed such a thing!"
We then collapsed in laughter and
shrieked with delight. Once the hype died
down, we tried to understand what had
occurred. Proponents of quantum physics
claim a butterfly fluttering its wings on
one side of the world creates a distinct
effect on the other. How much greater
an effect could 13 humans create assisted
by the immense magnification of energy
from the Great Pyramid? Did we really
cause the ring around the moon with our
projections for peace and healing? Was
it some incredible lesson for us in the
power of thought?
Now, more than ever, we need to
realise that the future is not set in stone.
That in fact, we are creating it as we go,
with our choices, thoughts and intentions.
Inside the Dhammapada, a collection
of the Buddha's teachings, there is an
Every moment of our life is a new life
and an old death: we die in a past that is
gone and we live in a future to come and
thus our life on this earth is a perpetual
transmigration. What we are today
comes from our thoughts of yesterday,
and our present thoughts build our life of
tomorrow: our life is the creation of our
This could well apply to the
phenomenon we call 2012.
'We need to replace fear with an intention to change the future
by being responsible for our choices.'
