Malta Video: When Mystery Calls, Answer the Door

Posted By Tamika on Mar 21, 2017

Mom and I were out on the town when a tall blonde woman with feathered hair—not quite Farrah Fawcett, but darn close—stopped me on the street and asked if I was from Malta.

“Um, no…” my 8-year old voice cracked before I bolted outta there.

Mom was up the street leafing through the Schaefer’s clothing rack looking for deals. She didn’t know anything about Malta, which freaked me out even more than being approached by a Charlie’s Angel look-alike.

While mom rummaged through underwear bins, I wondered why that woman thought I was from somewhere else. I also wondered if I’d be able to feather my hair like that someday...

By the time I calmed down enough to point her out, the woman was gone.

At age thirteen it happened again. That memory is fuzzier, sometimes making me wonder if it was a dream. This time an older kid visiting our school asked if I was from Malta.

None of this would mean much if I looked Maltese—I do not—or if I had Maltese neighbours growing up, or had an obsession with Malta. If we were studying Malta in school or if people talked about Malta the way they do Florida or other parts of Europe, this wouldn’t be worth mentioning—but that’s not what happened.

Malta came into my life out of nowhere.

Thirty years later I’m studying ancient religions and civilizations, and this little group of Mediterranean islands in between Africa and Sicily—Malta—pops up over and over again.

It was like Farrah’s twin was a postcard sent from my future self!

You can’t make this stuff up.

Steeped in religious, paranormal and cult history, Malta’s Megalithic temples are some of the oldest free-standing stone structures in the world, older than Stonehenge and the pyramids of Egypt—places I’d also been led to visit.

But Malta was even more mysterious. It’s covered in limestone, a rock filled with the bones of ancient marine life and used for ritual, healing, and amplifying energy. Malta is loaded with ancient limestone caves—many closed off to the public, still being “researched.”

Malta knows how to keep a secret.

This year, almost forty years after my brush with faux-Farrah, I finally set foot on my homeland-from-another-mother.

On our last day in Malta, Brenda, Carolyn, and I huddled together on a side-street in the ancient city of Mdina to share today’s Joycast.

The energies we share in the video are exactly what Malta teaches—and you don’t have to leave your home to experience them.

If you’re like me, your heart often sends you in mysterious directions. If it feels right in your bones—knocking on the door over and over again—trust it.

Trust it even if you don’t understand. Trust it when it feels hard. Trust it if they call you a fool.

We don’t have to understand these callings—we just need to keep our appointments with destiny.

After you watch the video, in the comments below, let us know which element called out to you—Limestone, Bone, or Glass.

Then go answer the door. There’s a mystery with your name on it.

So much love,

Wow--I am sitting here teary and blown away --I knew right away that my messages was in the bones and it was so perfect. Ancestral healing, learning more about my heritage, and deepening my connection with my true self have all been on my radar lately, so it totally makes sense! All 3 messages were so beautiful --thank-you???? I can't wait to get deeper into my bones in Whispered Wisdom this fall!!
Tamika on March 22, 2017
I love it, Bija—the unlocked codes deep down in the bones! Your words ring so true and deep, just like you. Thank you for sharing your experience and lighting the circle of light! Whispered Wisdom with K-Bhava—the best place to dance with your ancestors—I'm thrilled for you! Love you,

Wholly molly !! This is what I opened up to this morning ---- so amazing ! I love all of the messages from each of you ! BONES is what I connected to immediately. I used to be so afraid of connecting beyond the surface, and underneath the muscles that sometimes ache - but there is more -- and I want to explore ! .. Thank you so much for the limestone, the bones and the glass, and for YOU xoxo love you - Varana

Go deep or go home!? Not really, right...sometimes we just aren't ready to go deep—it's just too much. I see you as one of the deepest, most honest and vulnerably powerful souls I know, Varana. You're so brave on this path. Love you back XOXO

Bone. Instant and without hesitation. On first resonance, what I felt from the word was "ancient" "wisdom" "stability" "strength" "bone-deep" "in my bones"....but what fully surprised me was the reference to Kali-Ma! Her presence in my life has shook me to my core, the transitions and transformation presented to me these past couple of years were not for the feint of heart. Over and over again she presented Herself and still with Divine Love guided me, not gently, to remove and release what no longer served. So, wasn't expecting that initially. It not surprised at all She presented once again. Thank you for this beautiful collaboration of hearts and minds and wisdom and from the ancient streets of Malta. ????

Truthbumps. Thank you Allison for sharing your experience of that deep-down knowing in your bones, and your travels with Kali-Ma herself—she is so loving and so darn fierce! Wishing you the cornucopia of blessings she delivers in her wake. XOXO

Thank you ladies, that was beautiful. If I don't listen to the knock, eventually it because a big bang on my door and have no choice to answer the call. Limestone was my choice and interesting that is exactly how I have been feeling the last few days. Thanks for sharing my mentors. xo noush
Tamika on March 24, 2017
Ooooh the limestone is such a powerful choice, Noush. And you are so good at answering that knock on the door from destiny! Love, T xx

Loved this!!! I loved the story behind it, loved the joycast and loved seeing your smiling faces. When I read this part... If you’re like me, your heart often sends you in mysterious directions. If it feels right in your bones—knocking on the door over and over again—trust it. For some reason it gave me goosebumps. And then of course when I read that bone was one of the options I knew that one was for me. Still sitting with the message, but something inside is stirring. Thank-you.

"Still sitting with the message, but something inside is stirring"...Cindy, this kind of curious, confident patience is one of the things I love most about you. Thank you for being on this journey with the DevaTree fam, and all that you share! XO

I get to savour the joycast in another time. My now time, your passed time but really projected to the future. So really feeling the connections of divine time. To you, Tamika. Wow --limestone, bone and glass. I felt so connected to each of those words when you said them. I felt that limestone had some "bone" in it --skeleton of sea creatures. Glass, I understood that its composition was sand and had to look it up. Guess What! it is composed of sand, pot ash and Limestone. Today, I felt I was limestone-bone-glass. Thank you for the beautiful joycast.

Ok so when I heard bone I immediately pushed it away - the word brought up unsettling, fearlike feelings... so I went with limestone. Interesting that I picked a grounding energy when I felt fear.... But when I heard the message that bone brought - I knew it was for me. I was just thinking on my drive home from work how I have been skimming the surface of my days - just "getting by" and trying to figure out ways out of it - I need to give my bones some love - no matter how unsettling it may be (good thing I live on the Niagara Escarpment and I am surrounded by limestone)!! Thanks for the insight and the smiles.
Tamika on May 03, 2017
So interesting and thank you for your honesty and clarity, Amanda. I love it that the Escarpment is enveloping you in limestone too—so much love from Gaia...and me. XOXO
