Helsinki, Spiritual Journey

Helsinki is one of the most wonderful and magical cities you as a spiritual travel should never avoid to visit. While its architecture offers you gates to access information on past, current and future spiritual events, the natural forces expressing itself within the city, bring you to ancient records of prime and proto spirituality, that as one, whole skandinavian mother culture of the path of the gods and goddesses, would share as a gift to the world, in the past, present and future.

The holofractal quantum reality we live in, gives to Helsinki a great importance as connecting location to key information for your spiritual Journey

If your bloodline is merged with the one of this sacred land, or is about to be, the better and easier for you to enter the DNA codes of this trip and feel the information shared by the gods and goddesses in sacred union in the timeline of the prime heart, divine action.

When you ask yourself on the importance of a location for your Spiritual Journey, consider that your past and the future and present of your self and that one of this location are interconnected, beyond your age, but in a spiritual time line, with events that have and follow divine math (order). Open your eyes and your heart. future=present=past, within your holofractal quantum self. Unfold the true reality of your inner being, now!

Join me along my sightseeing in Helsinki!

Travel Report Russia – Helsinki 2014

Travel Report

Russia, Summer 2014

Helsinki, Fall 2014
After 3 years of planning, i finally felt grateful for every single traveler that will guide me to Russia. I have had three main goals:
1.) Spiritual archeology, visit to sites, Dolmens, around black sea, of great importance for local actual spiritual culture, but as well for Russian and proto-vedic culture. I would continue my research on traces left by my Skandinavian ancestors in Russia. Beside the important fact that i will had conscious dream experiences that will lead me to the dolmens in Black sea.
2.) I got almost a burned out experience in 2011, while offering consultancy services to corporate, which influenced my decision, first to travel and have some enjoyable experiences while reaching new customers abroad in Europe, and to bring my services into an online platform. in 2013 i felt it was time for the next stage: Land, build a house and centre with my own hands, with the collaboration of my students and family, and focus on my books, and spiritual teaching, as daily life activity. To enjoy nature and give less atention to the business world.
3.) Peace, the feeling of war in Europe was on the skin and i was just about to be ready with my book written between 2013 and 2013, and a series of practices for non violent communication and solution making, that would bring new inspiration to peace activists, artists, and social managers. I took my trip also as an opportunity to share my view on war and work for peace.
Life, most of the time bring, to us challenges that,  if faced with wonder and gratefulness, will show to us that the universe always bring to us, through strange paths, love, harmony and life, plus a simple request: to become spiritually self responsible. I must remember this fact as the events i am about to share with you might not feel comfortable for the reader, and wont inspire the young traveler, but their meaning need to be read in between the lines.
After some weeks dedicated to teaching and finding the right land for the Odin Theta Academy in Russia, one night, after midnight, was attacked by a man that claimed to be associated to one of my dear friends who assisted me in some projects last year. It is strange, but herself would the same day write me a message informing me that she will dedicate more time to her family in following years.  But how both events were interconnected. A power based, violent communication, was that night an experience i was not expecting. But as well an opportunity to apply my own practices and knowledge in the art of peace successfully. The aggressor left and in following days we will organize a mediation and communication meeting with support of the local community, helping this violent individual to realize the nature of his actions, and agree to take responsibility by not incurring in that kind of behavior again. I must add the following information:  along my first weeks in Russia i did discover that this individual attacked also my friend some months ago. His request was me to leave Russia and that he protects my friend and assistant by requesting from her to discontinue her spiritual interests. I must share here that she has been for several years involved into spirituality so far i know, there for i  found interesting the collaboration process with her.  The question stay: had he a conflict of interest with me, how his relationship with my friend and assistant would influence his decision to attack me, was his request coming out of a private interest or would he work for another organization.
In general my attitude after the positive process of solving those events would be to stay at location, but then one of our seminars was cancelled (I know this individual was calling people in the community interested and supportive of my work) and other events i will describe now, will suggest me it was the time to travel again.  But before i continue with my travel, i would like to share my great concern, as my friend and assistant never communicated again with me or any of her friends at this off the grid community.
Most of my students and even local teachers i will find long my travel in Russia, will recognize my work and teaching as similar to that one of ancient proto-vedic culture, and some will even suggest i had to be an incarnation of one of their teachers or have a soul connection with Russia, which i obviously will agree with.
I was working as consultant, wishing this contract to be the last one for following years, for a swiss company, along spring 2014, balancing my budget and making enough savings for my future 2014-2015 travel and projects. For a reason unknown, being the owner of this company also associated to my assistant and friend, they stopped paying my company while i was un Russia. Forced to wait for my lawyer to solve the issue in Zurich, i decided to give more atention to another of my projects which was spiritual archeology. So i did head to south black sea coast.
Gladly i took this decision as i will meet wonderful people around the archeological sites and welcome new friends and students from all Russia. They inspired me to continue and motivated me. Suggesting me new alternatives for land and new interesting ideas for projects in Russia.
From this point on in my trip all events will be joyful, filled with much wisdom, love and friendship. While as well i will be continuesly invited to identify the divine purpose of each single event of the day, the travel did show its magic as a wonderful spiritual journey.
Motivated by those experiences and the black sea coast, i did start two new publications on Travel Black Sea, and Spiritual Journey for Travelers, which will keep me bussy, and dedicate more time to Odin’s Diary site www.odinsdiary.luisdanielmaldonadofonken.info
I got so much fun along my trip that i decided to do not leave Russia the 8th of august as planned but stay until the end of my tourist visa of 90 days.
According to my calculations the 88 day i will arrive to southern russian border, ready to head south and continue my trip into Turkey and later come back to Russia by ferry from Istanbul.
Here starts again a new event that will change dramatically my travel experience. Russian immigration officers asked me to stay in Russia for a couple more of days, after explaining me that according to their calculations i have been in Russia for 90 days and 13 hours. That i would have to visit the Immigration office in Adler city and ask for a visa extend. in 18 years of travel experience i never ever missed the calculation, why just now in Russia?
I was respectfully welcome by the immigration office team, who asked me come back next day. after few hours of documentation and register, i thought i would receive a 2 days visa extend, but i did not. I was brought to Adler court were the judge will ask me pay a fee of 2000 Rubles, which is very normal in those cases, but will tell me i will be forbidden enter Russia for 5 years. This information as you can imagine shocked me tremendously. But they told me i could appeal in the court and would have only ten days to do that. So i prepared my self to do so. I had only 9 days. On top of the fact that i had no lawyer prepared nor a special budget planned for it, i had to organize all from the blue,  an immigration officer suggested me strongly to get inmediatly a flight ticket, as if any immigration control takes place while me still in Russia along the process of registering an appeal process, i could get arrested. For me this request made non sense as i was legally in Russia. but he did mean i must buy a flight ticket, so i did.
I left Russia by plain, at the time requested by the Russian court, and had no single difficulties nor experience any uncomfortable situation in the airport while pass control. On the contrary, i noticed that the immigration officers are quite kind.
My dear friends gave me a hand on this, and asked me to choose a good last minute flight to Helsinki or Istambul, I had few minutes to choose, and without any trip planned i did choose finally Helsinki. I will be back to northern european countries.
An information i received by lawyers that collaborated with me was that still Abkhazian is in conflict with Georgia, and that for Abkhazian (russian south border) would be illegal to intent to cross to Georgia, and that for Georgia would be illegal to intent to cross to Georgia from Russia or Abkhazia. In other words, the Russian immigration officers stopped me getting into more difficult troubles. As to be arrested in Abkhazia or Georgia, would not be fun at all. I remember i did ask a tourist information office some weeks before my travel south Russia on the issue and they told me there is actually now no problem. I don not know if my lawyer was right, but the cases he had to manage or hear about are facts. From my side, i never left russian territory, but from Moscow, with an air-plain. Maybe one day i will travel to Turkey and continue my Travel book on the Black Sea.
My arrival to Helsinki was a great question mark. My purpose, mission, to find out why and what i should be in Helsinki, what Helsinki needs from me or would like to co-create with my presence. SO i contacted the travel network in Helsinki and her we are, meeting again wonderful people and letting life show me the travel path of the day.
My lawyer in Switzerland is still solving the challenge i mentioned before and i am again looking for new locations where to ground a second and third hub for Odin Theta School in Europe, as Russian project and my russian students must wait for a while.
As a continues act of peace i travel, meditate and share my knowledge every where i go, that is my travel path and my spiritual journey. Without the nature of the collaboration of my students, travel network, friends and family my travel adventure and projects would not be as they are now.
In gratefulness, gratitude and joyful love, to them, as for these experiences of change (self transforming life) hold the most wonderful meaning and gift for my spiritual journey
Smiles & Hearts on the road.

Save the Artic , save the earth! campaign!

MUST WATCH.. https://vimeo.com/50684634 Save the Artic , save the earth! campaign!

Greenpeace – Save the Arctic from You and I Films on Vimeo.

In the last 30 years, we’ve lost as much as three-quarters of the floating sea ice cover at the top of the world. The volume of that sea ice measured by satellites in the summer, when it reaches its smallest, has shrunk so fast that scientists say it’s now in a ‘death spiral’.

For over 800,000 years, ice has been a permanent feature of the Arctic ocean. It’s melting because of our use of dirty fossil fuel energy, and in the near future it could be ice free for the first time since humans walked the Earth. This would be not only devastating for the people, polar bears, narwhals, walruses and other species that live there – but for the rest of us too.

The ice at the top of the world reflects much of the sun’s heat back into space and keeps our whole planet cool, stabilizing the weather systems that we depend on to grow our food. Protecting the ice means protecting us all.

Dolomites – the adventure

ARCHIVE

I think one of the most excisting adventures i had on the wild nature have been that one of the Dolomites. here the story posted in another of my blogs in 2012.


 

Dolomites – the adventure 

Today i knew i will have to be very early at the bus stop, for the bus to briong me to the base of the three fampouse peaks of the dolomites, i really planned a easy way up with bus and to enjoy some hours and later walk down… but plans are not life and life have own surprises prepared for you…always

about 10 am, after having a delicious breakfast with my friends, a package delieverd to the hotel, for me, arrived, that early, so i had to care for it… finally my stuff was there… i felt a relief (this is another story)..but then when i was free and off again i realized where already 11 am.

the first bus will take me to the next town, from there i will need to take a second but up to the base of the three peaks… but as Tirol is also part of italy, some of the italian customes have to be observed here as well…stores and also busses stop at midday… they close or dont work, …. another traveler told me they do siesta like in spain, i cannot say so… my friends at the hotel were working hard preparing themselves for the performance tomorrow…

so, it was 11:30 and i was about 4 hours walk away from the base… my fisst decision was to enjoy the forest, and hike up for about 3 hours to a bus stop close to the valley that brings you up the three peaks…

so it was a long way, i had no real map and had just to find a pathway along the way…and move my self fast as didnt want to miss the almost last bus…

so i started to walk, crossed the whole town at the middle of the valley and walked up through the forest, passing through some rivers, and lake… really wonderful, you can see the pictures…

i did really enjoy that pathway up…warm..sunny…sweet and wet…

at 2:40 i was already at the bus stop,…i made it… and one hour before the bus! youhuuu! apparently after teaching and office work, i am still fit enough to play with the mountain…

i have been missing that…. i thought the rest of the day will be very easy…that all was then one more time coordinted…but it wasnt that way…a key unespected informtion will bring to me that adrenaline rush i was wishing for, later on…

the whole last three days these mountains have been calling me, leaving in my heart the feeling of an ancient civilization living some how still here…so more and more i felt moved to that stone gates, up there…

at 3:20 the bus came, picked me up and in about 30 minutes we were at a highest lake, and then to the hut for climbers… up there… cooling wind, the skzline in 360..and you and the sky…what can be better?

well, listen:

i asked the bus driver when was the last connection down… it was about 16:00 when i asked ..he said at 5 pm…

we landed in the back side of the peaks, and actually i wished to play didjee and do some yoga and sword katas on the front side, where the gates show their platforms… …so…which alternatives i would have… to walk around the peaks will take about 3 hours for many if walk to teh left.. if to the right maybe one hour……then i could go to the next hut and then take a pathway down to the next one to catch the last bus at 19:30 to my hotel…

ideal plan..again…

i know, for me also sounded like…”no way” why to do it…but i did…

my point of no return was at 16:30 where i found my self at the first hut, already at the other side of the three peaks… in the front side, where i wanted to go… i rested for a while, and asked for directions, took my “very simple” tourist office map..and started to look for a place for meditation, for at least 30 min, while heading down…

i found it and i took many pictures and had so much fun meeting people up there…

it was clear, almost 5 pm, and i was the last guy walking down the mountain that late…the sun was almost ready to go and was my first time on that pathway…

yes…no one experienced in mountaineering will recomended me to try that idea out…but i did…

why..well, we take decisions and take chances…

will i meet ice on the path,will the path be to complex to walk down, stones or hard path, will all be wat…is the soil stable… how far is the next hut… does my handy work…do i have enough food and warm cloths if i get stuck along the way…in the night…will my knies survive the effort if i push to get it on time for the bus down there…

the people i asked calculated about 4.5 hours back to my hotel from up there…or 6 hours if i decide to take an alternative path to the other valley…

sure, to the other valley i will probabl reach a town early…but very far away home…

i considered i might not arrive on time for the bus.. i will probably have to walk the whole night to my hotel… so i will take the hard short path…. a 3.5 or 4 hours hike… it means i will walk at night… will a see where i go?

any way i will try that out…

some protein powder, spirualina, water, fruits and vegis… a smoothy on the way… a first aids kit…. and ready for some walking…

about 30 min later, almost in front of the three peaks i found a nice place for meditation sounding and sword kata… i took my time to enjoy, that was the reason i was up there…right? well there was another one…the walls of that peaks, that raw stone are gates to other times and places…you camn feel it with an energetical touch… if you like to travel you will know what i mean… a wonderful light city beyond the images the stones bring to you, for some might be memories of an ancient civilization, for others a gate in time, for others a path to another world…what ever it is, i knew i was at the right place doing the right thing…so i did some love breathing and took as many images internally of the place recognizing what i will need to do the next time i will be there again…yes..i am planning to try it one more time… as it was fun!

after meditation i went all the way down…stones pathway like stairs, not that friendly for the knies, i could see the valley but not a path not a hut…and it was along distance of stairs and stones and …. the sun was going down…

the last thing you want to do is to get stuck walking down in a path full of the most strange and dangerouse stones… in darkness… and in a vertical wall of about 75 degrees…

but i was lucky, i arrived to the base in about 1 hour..more than espected anz waz… i would be lucky if i find the bus stop on time… i left the stones area and entered some river plate and forest…

along that time i knew i had another challenge… the marks for the path were about 50 mts to 70 mts from each other…if the path continue that manner, i thought, i wont make it in darkness… was i ready to stand a night up there… i wasnt tired enough to dont run…but would i run the following 7 kms? any way…i kept walking

about 30 min later appered the hut and a path of asfalt… my first feeling as: made it…but it was too soon… there was more for me waitring along the road… literallz..

my time chart for the bus wasnt right…the bus was gone at 18:45 about…and i arrived there at 19:10 very much on time for my first planning and schedule i had…in other words…i made it on time…but not for the real bus…..

but it was a road, very easy to follow,i just had to make it before 8 pm to the main highway down there to get the last bus nr 445…. there..down there

so, i walked down…all got dark, the forest is wonderful taking to you in the dark… i really did enjoy the light changes and the sounds of the water and wind…all was cooling down, the sun was away then the water in the air started to create a cold moisture and all feels abit cold….

almost there..i saw some lights, it was the high way… found the bus stop, exactly on time for my record…20:20… the next bus was 20:22 i felt ok… but..i realzed it was a bus in the opposite direction…i crossed the street…the last bus to my place was gone at 19:30

and i was not yet at the valley of my hotel… and all was really dark…i had only one chance… to walk in the highway at night? that is for sure not ok…

i had a little light, and remembered how to walk in the highway ( i did that befor…and i have to tell this…i didint like it… it is a matterof luck if the right driver miss you or see you or not see you when you are there…) at night, litle by little… stop when the cars come to you,,… slowly, listen to the engines, see the lights…get away from their way…remember they dont see you…turn off your light when they are 50 mts close…they wont understand your light and you might create an acident…keep close to the forest as much you can… look for a hikers path..if you can see any…

it was cold, i was tired..and i knew i had still a long path before home…any way…all the time… and it was ok..not yet 9 pm…

after about 45 min…i noticed a hiking pathway…yes a pathway that goes to my hotel…i was happy…

to walk at night deep night in the forest is a wonderful experience, also if you have a river next to you… an endless forest…

but in about another hour i arrived to another street with lights..and 10 minutes later i was in my hotel…

wonderful, my friends were eating already…just on time for dinner…

water, first aids kit, super food, warm clothing, prepared for emergency b-back (sleep i the forest or mountain without tent), a nice friend on hand: jaegermeister, a tiny light… and lots lots of presence and awareness with each decision and move you take even when you deeply tired..you need to decide every time what you need to do…with the inmediate results… for example in the highway at night…

the stars were wonderful, the river was singing… the high way didint botter me…

i felt tired but happy… and i noticed one of my friends was calling me on the phone but i could not answer..my handy didnt work… yes…i have been hiking alone in the mountain with no handy…

dont try it yourself without experience…even for me, it is fun, but also adrenaline…

all decisions were right…to choose another alternatives would bring me in worst or more difficult situation, for sure the alternative 1. to go back at 5 pm or to sleep in the mountain hut were not real options…

the most challenging thing was timing, to coordinate weather, time, temperatur, energy, spped. save energy, breath, keepo centered, listen to your heart and intuition….and geography of the path and potential risk i would find in a path i have never been in…

from the top to down…i needed another 4.5 hours…and i was all the time alone in the mountain… yes…tottaly aware and self responsible… noticing that a little instant you let go your presence would mean a high cost for you….if feeling tired could create a tiny instant of distraction and you could step in the wrong spot or take the wrong decision or follow the unnecessary emotion….. yes…fear practice is a must…but what to fear about? to coordinate yourself and do the necessary things in the right time is about self responsibility—not about fear… that is how the mountain is… there is no mercy if you sleep your self… as all that happend up there you create with your own decisions and actions and presence…

i felt loved all the time, cared and supported by nature and friendly spirtts…. i did sing and laugh also review all my life,and remembered all moments and places i have been in the mountain… yes i saw all my life..maybe because my instinct told me what i was doing was relatively dangerouse?…maybe..but if you are present and in love…there is no need to be concerned about fear or adnger…but about being there in that instant fully aware…then all will unfold perfectly

a wonderful day i have to say… full of micro adventures, along a new path…always something new unespected …. and my self…doing the best..making the best out of it…

have been a wonderful day…

Helsinki (after leaving Russia)

Helsinki welcome me with a 1 min synch. variation.

The main streets keep that feeling of easy going life and high quality energy
A good change after russian wild forest and immigration affairs.
I planned a city walk passing through the most empowering buildings you would ever see with records of spiritual architecture most travelers wont notice
The city is full of those sites and the traveler is welcome to read them freely if the codes given to them
The coast keep its romantic breeze and the cold water of fall, bring me memories of dance with wolves in the finnish forest
I scheduled activities for one month or three, open to the flow of my spiritual journey i will discover what Finnland has for me hidden
Its call was impacting me along a 9 minutes decision making, while in russia, must choose one location where to leave and have a flight ticket on hand to avoid strong difficulties with russian immigration control along my last day travel in russia between sochi and mosco.
Helsinki was the last two times kind, while now is becoming familiar.
There are two sites i must visit and wait with patience for the connecting flow of the location.
The information on why this land wants me to travel here and how its collective soul wishes to communicate with me, where is the collaboration field, will arise soon, until then i will keep my heart and eyes open, as usual.
My trip from Moscow to Helsinki was easy, with no stress nor difficulties, which was a nice way to say good bye to russia for some time
Along the last few days i developed great appreciation for russian immigration sensitivity to my situation and recovered my feeling of trust with them.
Russian law might be straight and strongly applied, but eventually, all events in life has divine sense and purpose.
I wonder when governments will realize this fact and act with self respect accordingly.
The impacts out of my presence, started up in russia along my black sea travel, will leave russian territory with new open possibilities for development and most of my students there, after my unplanned trip with no return ticket to russia, so far we know, they would wonder about their role and responsibilities for the time to come.
I must feel greatful and thank publically to all russian and international team of freinds, who spirtually and humanly collaborated with my travel adventure along joy, fun, and solution making, with some specially in sochi region, moscow, and krasnodar, i wont mention names now. as well as to the lawyers that kindly adviced me for the immigration law issues, and the immigration officers that were patient with my english and lifestyle.
Now in Helsinki, a new adventure starts, and new encounters are to be waited.
Smiles and hearts on the road
