The Sound of Music 50th Anniversary
Climb Every Mountain 

My recent flight from Houston to Buenos Aires was filled with joy, smiles and tears! After a couple of decades, I saw again The Sound of Music (1965) directed by Robert Wise and starring Julie Andrews (Maria) and Christopher Plummer (Captain von Trapp). Adapted from a true story, the movie won five Oscars and it celebrates this year its 50th anniversary. What a beautiful and inspiring musical film!

Maria was studying to become a nun in a convent in Salzburg, Austria in late 1930’s, but she was not very successful due to her enthusiastic free spirit and difficulty in following rules.

Mother Abbess sent Maria to Captain von Trapp, a retired naval officer, to be the governess of his seven children. After becoming widower, the captain raised his children with strict discipline in a house filled with orders and rules.

With an open heart, kindness and patience, Maria “broke the walls” by bringing love and laughter to the family again through music. I will not share more about the story itself in case you haven’t seen it.

This movie is perfect for the Red Moon Wavespell happening this time under the influence of the last Supermoon Full Moon of 2015. With the Sun in Scorpio and the Moon in Taurus, the invitation is to be present, embody and follow what we truly love, face our shadows and dive deep into what we feel as we release what is not in alignment with our core.

Each character in the movie went through difficult moments of confusing emotions where profound transformation occurred. The turning point for the captain was when, filled with emotion, he heard his children singing for the first time. Maria chose to go back to the convent when she was confused on what she felt for the captain. The children could no longer sing for their sadness when Maria left…

When we are not happy, it is difficult to let our hearts sing and creativity flow! So often we numb our feelings to avoid suffering. We repress our emotions and continue hiding from confronting what we truly feel for the fear of going deeper in our pain and loosing control. As soon as we relax and allow ourselves to be happy, things flow again and music is restored in our hearts.

While this film is filled with great lessons, I would like to share the moment when Mother Abbess asked Maria what was it that she couldn’t face. “Maria, these walls were not built to shut out problems. You have to face them. You have to live the life you were born to live”.

Climb every mountain
Search high and low
Follow every byway
Every path you know

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
Till you find your dream

A dream that will need
All the love you can give
Every day of your life
For as long as you live

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
Till you find your dream

When landing in Argentina, I was curious to see where the actors are today so I searched online and sharing with you what I found and liked.

At the Oscars this year’s 87th Academy Awards, Lady Gaga beautifully performed a composition of The Sound of Music’s songs during a Tribute with Julie Andrews. If you are in a hurry, go to 3:30 when she starts singing and 7:55 when Julie Andrews comes on stage. Early this month Julie turned 80!

This episode with Diane Sawyer and Julie Andrews going back to the places where the movie was filmed is also very special. You can watch Part 1 and Part 2.

And, finally, this one is during a re-union on Oprah’s show in 2010 where the actors where present and the real von Trapp great grandchildren sang “Edelweiss”.

Beginning of the Green Castle

The Wavespell of the Red Moon initiates the Green Castle of Transcendence, the fifth and last Castle of this 260-day cycle. From October 29 to December 19, 2015, we have 52 days to be in the flow, stay creative and receptive and enjoy the fruits of our efforts!

This weekend we start a beautiful journey together with a group for the next couple of weeks. I will be delayed in sending my next message out as we will be climbing mountains in Cordoba and happily singing in Buenos Aires : -)

Happy being!

In Lak’esh means “I am another yourself!”, a Mayan greeting that recognizes the Divine in each living Being. It’s a message of Unity that reminds us that, when we give, we are also receiving. In this way, the Mayan honored and respected each other, reinforcing the belief that we are all interconnected: what we do to others and to our environment will also affect ourselves in the end…

Munay means both ‘Love’ and ‘Beauty’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Munay, translated as ‘To love’, is one of the three principles of the Andean way.
