Yesterday I went to Paranormaal Alternatief in Rijswijk, the biggest indoors spiritual fair in The Netherlands. I had talked about it with friends, but had completely forgotten all about it! They called me when I was just out of bed to ask if I would come too. I called Joke and asked if she wanted to go with me. She did, so I picked her up and we drove to Rijswijk.
We were at the entrance about 1pm, the fair would close at 5pm. There was a lot to see and do. Around 400 stands with all kinds of paranormal and spiritual participants: shops, massage, consultations (tarot, palmreading, iridology, etc. etc.), workshops, lectures... I didn't buy anything, though there was enough I wanted! Just nothing special, nothing you can't buy in an esoteric shop.
We looked for someone to do a reading. We chose a man with the sign 'voluntary contribution'; not to rip him off, but because that's the way to make it possible for everyone. First he did a reading for Joke with fairytale cards. When he was done, I decided to have a go too, but with other cards (Oracle of the Indian medicine men, or something like that). He told me to focus more on reason and less on feeling. That was a surprise; people often say I'm too rational. The man said that is because I'm good at putting things into words. I sound well-thought-out, but that doesn't mean I did think it over by reason. Hmmm.... I'll have to think some more about that.... Interesting....
At 4pm we attended a dreamtime concert by Nada Naga. We lay down, closed our eyes and the music started: singing and all kinds of instruments like didgeridoo, singing bowls, drums. The soundhealing lasted for 45 minutes and I really enjoyed it, very relaxing. I haven't made pics, but this is from another concert to get the idea.
