Dear readers, tonight with me is a young woman who grew up on the fringes of the empire of Atlantis.
She is here to tell us about her travels across oceans and ancient worlds (from Atlantis to Ancient Egypt), her inherent mental powers, and her mysterious visions.
Tell us a little about where you grew up. What was it like there?
I grew up on a small island called Chinza. It’s in the middle of the world’s biggest ocean and far away from any other place. I didn’t even know that there was anything beyond the big blue horizon until I was about 12 solar cycles in age and met Tozar, who was hiding in my cave and told me he came from a land far away. Up to that point, I lived outside the village with my mother who was always unhappy and picking on me for everything. It wasn’t really a nice a place, and everyone thought I was strange because my skin was paler than everyone else’s. People sort of avoided my mother and me, so I grew up playing by myself in the caves. Chinza is a volcanic island and has lots of caves, so I used to explore those and play in them. It was a dull and boring place until some strange people wearing white robes came to Chinza and began making huge stone statues that looked like people. I spied on them once and saw that they used strange and special powers to make the big stone statues.
What was the most important thing that happened in your life?
Tozar – the man I found hiding in a cave on Chinza – took me away from that depressing place and told me about the Atlan Empire and the beautiful City of Atlán, where he lived. The Atlan people have advanced knowledge and technology, as well as special abilities that enable them to transform elements such as sand to stone and metal to gold, just with the power of their minds! They can also summon visions of faraway places and people using the reflection of a still body of water. But the most exciting thing is that I found out that my father was an Atlan with such powers, and that I inherited those abilities from him! At first I couldn’t believe that a plain girl like me could learn to summon visions of distant places, transform sand into stone, make heavy stone blocks almost weightless and then build my own small pyramid to harness lunar and cosmic energies!
What do you do now?
When I became an adult, I went to the City of Atlán to be with Tozar, and that’s where I attended a school to learn about healing and herbs. Besides being a Healer, I also became part of the High Council of Atlán, alongside Tozar, helping to solve people’s problems, big and small. But the biggest challenge was when the Dark Master started subverting our way of life, causing death and suffering among poor and helpless people. That’s when we discovered that I had extra special powers of summoning visions, and this helped us stop the Dark Master…at least we thought so at first.
