I’ve been attracted to sacred sites all my life. There’s something about giant stones in symbolic circles, megalithic structures that no one knows the real purpose of and anything else veiled in mysterious history or powerful natural earth energies that have me drawn to them like a moth to a flame.

I have visited hundreds of sites around the world, some of the most famous sites like The Pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge, Delphi, the Sistine Chapel, Machu Picchu, Avebury, Uluru (Ayers Rock) Angor Wat to name a smattering and those not known to anyone at all. Some allowed me to access energetic experiences and different levels of my consciousness, and others (mostly the most famous and older ones!) were far less remarkable. All of them I was drawn to for a reason. A reason way beyond my human understanding, but a knowing of my true self, and the depths of my soul.

Sacred sites are often on energy vortexes where the ley lines of the earth meet. Similar to the meridian lines in our body’s energy system. This can provide a more powerful access point where we are able to interact with the energies of the earth and the cosmos, and even on a multidimensional level – access portals to other dimensions via different layers of our consciousness. 


The intelligence and wisdom encoded in these sites is profound. Accessing the full capability of a site requires some basic protocol to honour the sacred energies, and an open heart of pure intention. Sometimes the experience isn’t for us to ‘receive’ anything for ourselves at all, but for us to be used as a conduit, or for our energy and the codes we are carrying within our energetic structure to be exchanged and used to activate the site itself. In giving, we receive. 

As I mentioned in my transformational travel memoir The Inside Hustle: A Mystical Misfit’s Travel Adventure Into The Unknown, some of the strongest energies and experiences I was surprised to find right on my doorstep here in New Zealand. I now suspect this is due to the fact that the new consciousness energies are anchored here in this land of Aotearoa which will be even more important in the coming years. 

These are the energies we are all working with as we remember our true selves in our personal evolution, and that of the planet, as we regain reverence for the natural world of which we are a part, and realign with love, respect and unity consciousness for all beings.

I offer private tours, vision quests, group energy immersions, retreats and a host of other offerings to help you tap into the deeper layers of yourself and use these amazing sacred sites for your personal transformation.

I have been training my whole life for this without even realising it, and I cannot wait to share it with you, whether you live locally, or based in the rest of the world. Get in touch!
