An Experience in Greece

After an amazing and magical (and intense!) winter in the Greek Islands it was time for Romana and I to head home to Slovenia, and along the way we spent a couple days with our dear friend Maria Grigoraki in Athens. One evening she invited a few friends to join us for dinner and a channel, and the result is the message below.

In the first part Romana brings a special message from Gaia about releasing the responsibilities of the past and bringing all those energies back into our bodies. And guys, even though she addresses this message mostly to the ladies, it is equally important, if not more so, for us!

Then I brought in Johannes (my soul) with a special message about transformation, and about entering into the void that is beyond all the questions. And of course we took a few questions at the end, and one of the participants shared a beautiful experience of being in the void earlier that day.

We give special thanks to Maria for hosting us, Μary Polychroni for the Greek translation, and to the other participants for bringing their energies and consciousness into this experience.

An Experience in Greece – by John McCurdy and Romana Ercegović
Channeled on April 7, 2021


Dear ladies, my dear friends,

I would like to say how deep an honor it is for me to speak in such a circle of wise women—including the inner feminine of John.

I feel that all of us that are gathered here tonight, today, have a very deep connection with this land of Greece and have been holding a lot of wisdom, ancient wisdom in our bodies, for a long, long time. When John suggested this channel to happen today, and he asked me to be part of it, I felt that there are some things I would like to say to you.

So, first of all, I would like to invite all of us to feel very comfortable, to take a deep breath in the body, deep in your belly, a deep sacred breath of life.

Take in this love that is inside of us and let’s feel the energies that are here.

Take a deep, deep breath, and feel how this breath fills the body, expands the body, opens the body, opens us so we can feel deeper and more open.

Just enjoy feeling yourself for a little bit, feeling your sacred presence, your sacred body. Your sacred heart. Your sacred womb.

This last seven months when we were traveling in many beautiful and sacred places in Greece, starting in Delphi, visiting many other places in the Peloponnese, beautiful temples and then visiting the islands, first Island Tinos, Island Mykonos, Island Syros and then Paros, before we came back here to Athens, Athena. All this time I was feeling Gaia very close to me, her energies that are very ancient, and in the same time the crystalline energies that want to speak to us today. And I would like to share this message that I was receiving in this time, and I feel it is important for more people to hear it.

I was feeling this sacredness in the land that was covered by many layers over the history. And many of us were having this job in many past lives to harmonize these energies, to be connected with energies, to remember the sacredness and these high vibrations of crystalline sacredness of Earth, and Gaia. And now she asks us to bring all this sacredness that we were taking care of back to our body and to realize that the most important temple is us. That all this sacredness that we were keeping and taking care of in the land, we were preparing for our realization in this lifetime.

So, also, we were helping to balance the grid, the magnetic grid of Gaia. But also, and most importantly, we were keeping these energies for us, so we would come back one day, inside of us, and integrate this sacredness.

So now, I would invite all of us to allow these energies to come back, to allow this, to fully embody this love that we were holding in these places outside, in temples that we were thinking were outside. And now, in this time, it’s time that we allow it to come back in our body.

This sacred energy, the sacred feminine energies as many of us call them, the wisdom, the deep wisdom. It’s not about understanding anything right now. Don’t try to understand. Maybe later or maybe you will, but this is not important right now. What is important is to allow this lightness, these crystalline energies, to flow in our body. To just come back, in a new way, in a more magnificent way than we ever knew.

So please, just take a deep breath if you choose. Make yourself very comfortable, and just breathe.

Allow these energies, this love of Gaia, the love of your soul that is coming back. Allow this love to love you.

Just breathe it in.

Breathe it out.

Just feel.

Just open your heart and honor yourself for all this work that you have done, that you don’t even maybe remember.

But there is lots of wisdom in the nature, lots of beautiful, magical energies that are there waiting for human to open, to open sensuality, to open senses. Many beautiful colors, many beautiful fragrances, many beautiful crystalline energies from the crystalline caves deep in the earth.

There are so many treasures that are revealing to us as we open to receive, and Gaia is inviting us to receive, to receive all this beauty, to receive all these treasures and these beautiful, playful energies.

She is inviting us, together with our soul, to allow ourselves to be like children. And in this playfulness, to feel how the rocks feel. How the water feels. How it feels to have wind in our hair, the sun on our skin. To enjoy the sensual life. To enjoy our bodies. To enjoy sexuality. To play with life. To allow ourselves to a little bit release this serious identity, this responsibility that we were holding for many, many, many lifetimes, and allow ourselves to play, to feel, to love.

There’s no need to understand everything, to understand what this means and what it doesn’t mean, what my soul is trying to tell me. Sometimes it’s just enough to just be, and to assume that life is serving me. That all these beautiful energies around me that Gaia is opening to us and our soul is opening to us, that we can allow—you can allow—the joyfulness and the smile in the heart.

Just allow yourself to feel these energies coming back to you.

Beautiful, soft, colorful energies caressing your heart, caressing your body.

Just breathe.

Breathe it in.

And this will bring also creativity in your life, and new ways of creative expressions.

Thank you very much for your presence, for your sacredness.

And I will now ask John to continue.


Thank you, Romana.

Okay, so let’s take a moment and breathe that in. Such a beautiful experience!

Hmm… (breathing)

Ahh, I am that I am!

I am Johannes, of magical service! Also known as John’s soul.


Indeed, thank you Romana. Such a beautiful experience. Such a beautiful message. There is indeed no more sacred temple than the temple of you, the temple of your body.


Indeed, you helped to create Earth. Or your soul did, and then you came to Earth. You embodied a part of yourself into this little body, and you went into your creation. But you forgot that creation is something that must be set free, and so you spent lifetimes and lifetimes trying to protect what you had created.


And so much beautiful, amazing experience came from that! The human of you doesn’t think it was all so beautiful, but your soul, oh, it takes in the wisdom from every bit of those experiences, and it distills it into the most amazing nectar.


And here you are, at the end of your journey. Oh, the end and the beginning!


I invite you, at this point, to give permission to your own soul to be part of this message, to speak to you directly through this message. It doesn’t matter where you are. It doesn’t matter if you are listening or reading, or what day or time it is, you can still be part of this message. Simply give permission.



Feel the energies here.

Feel the presence of your own soul, your own divinity.


(sound of doves cooing in the background)

Indeed, the cooing of the dove in the background. You can assume that it is the sound of your own soul.


So here you are, coming to the completion of your journey, and this precious temple of your body is changing. You know the metaphor of the caterpillar, and how the caterpillar lives its life eating its way from leaf to leaf, doing its best to find enough food, doing its best to keep from being eaten by the birds or stepped on by the humans.


One day an inner wisdom comes along, and the caterpillar begins to spin a cocoon around itself. Inside this cocoon it wonders what it is doing. It doesn’t make any sense! And then it starts to feel strange sensations in its body, and pretty soon it realizes that its body is melting and dissolving into a puddle of goo.


How do you think the caterpillar feels at this point? Not too good!

And so here you are, dear human, in your cocoon, dissolving into goo. Except, you don’t get to go hide in the cocoon like the caterpillar. You get to do this while maintaining a certain human form, or trying to.

Participant: That’s the fun part!


Johannes: The fun part, indeed! And for so many of you it’s not fun at all. It hurts.

The communications network within your body that connects all of your cells is gone. Your cells are going a little bit crazy. They don’t know what to do.

And then there’s the mind, the beautiful human mind. You’ve gone through so many lifetimes with your mind. It has tried so hard to protect you, and now it feels your body falling apart and it wants to protect you. But it looks into the past, because that’s all the mind can see, and it pulls up all these remedies and says, I need to do this and I need to do that. I need to go exercise. And it finds out that it doesn’t work.


That is because your body isn’t the same anymore. Nothing from your past has any relevance anymore.


So the mind panics. It tries all these different things, and that just makes it hurt worse. Some of you experience intense pain, and you wonder why. You wonder if it’s worth going through this process of embodying your divinity.


So, what I am here to tell you, along with your own soul, is that this is our job. It is not yours anymore. It is not up to you, anymore, to take care of your body. That is our job. Your soul knows what you need, and when. It knows how to arrange it.


We were talking with someone this morning. He’s had so many strange sensations, and difficult sensations, to deal with, and as we were talking he said how, during the conversation, he could feel how all the questions go away and he could feel the peace inside. But it’s scary for the mind, because the mind wants to know how to protect its human. So what we said to this dear friend is, This place that you are feeling right now, this still place, this is the key.

Humans call it the void. It’s this empty place. The mind is terrified of it, because when you are in this void you can’t see anything. You can’t see the future. You don’t know what is going to happen next. In this void there are no answers to the questions. In this void even the questions fade away.


And then something magical happens.

In this void where there are no more questions and no more answers, the wisdom comes in. It comes to you as a gentle, soft, knowing. It comes to you as a soft feeling in your heart, a feeling that says, “Look over here!” at just the right moment. A feeling that often says simply, “All as well!”


That is your soul communicating with you, sharing your divine wisdom, this beautiful nectar.

Within this void—if you can allow it, if you can allow all of the questions to fade away—within this void magic happens.

Within this void you find a new relationship with the pain and with your body.

Within this void beyond the questions, beyond the understanding, here transformation happens naturally.


So, we invite you to consider this void, to allow yourself to be in this void.

The easiest way to do that is to let the questions go. All the questions: Am I doing this wrong? Is there something I should be doing? Why did that happen?

Let them all go, because any answers that you can find for those questions are just the mind, and your mind has no wisdom for your body and for you at this point. It has a beautiful human wisdom, but it is all from the past and it no longer applies.

But your soul, your divinity, is here. It is you, and this nectar, this beautiful wisdom of your soul, is all yours. But it comes in the moment. It comes without questions. It’s just the soft, gentle knowing, in the moment that you need it.


So, we understand that there are a few questions here.

Participant: “They have not faded away yet!”


Johannes: Ha ha! And that’s okay, because questions are very human. Questions are not bad things. It’s just that we are learning to go beyond them. So let’s take some questions, and see how we maybe can go beyond them.

Participant: Maybe the translator can go first?

Johannes: We have limited time, so let’s keep them concise. And indeed, Translator…

Translator: I have no questions at this moment!

Johannes: Okay. Who has a question?

Participant 1: Okay, I had a question, but now I have the answer.

Johannes: Ah.

Participant 1: But you told that we felt so much pain in the body and we don’t know what to do. And I had so much pain in my head, very strong pains, something like drilling, from the day I met you in Porto Heli, from that day in August until two weeks ago. And I had panic about what was happening, and I went to the doctor and I make some exercise and some tests, and they tell me, “You are okay. Your blood, your pressure, everything is okay.” So I told to myself, “I leave it for now, I’m not thinking anymore.” So after one or three days the pain stopped.

Johannes: Indeed.

Participant 1: This was the incident, and this is how we integrate our divinity, our soul?

Johannes: You see, the human doesn’t like to hear this, but all pain is a product of the mind.

Participant 1: Especially in the heart.

Johannes:  The pain is simply a signal, an electrical and chemical signal. Your body sends a signal to the brain that says, “Hey, pay attention to me! Something is happening here!”

Then the mind looks into its past. It associates with something from the past and it says, “Oh, there’s something bad happening and I have to hurt!” And so it creates this sensation of hurting.


It’s not so easy to get beyond that by thinking. You can’t get beyond it by thinking. But you can come into this void and allow yourself to be in that place of unknown, that place where you simply don’t know what the pain is or why it is or what to do about it. It doesn’t mean it’ll go away immediately, but the more you can be in that place beyond the questions, beyond the need to do something about it or fix it, you’ll find a new relationship with it.

Participant 1: Yes.

Johannes: Indeed. What else?

Participant 2: I’d like to ask my soul something.

Johannes: Okay.

Participant 2: I woke up this morning, and what I heard and what I felt was, “Spiritual death.” I couldn’t move. I wasn’t in pain. I couldn’t move. I didn’t want to move or to get out of the bed. And it was something so, so deep. I truly didn’t know anything. I was totally in the void. Totally. I’ve been there many times, but this time was different, because I wanted to be here, and yet I couldn’t move.

So, I didn’t know what to do, and to tell you the truth I didn’t want to do anything anymore. I just wanted for everything to stop. There was no pain, there was no fear, there was nothing. The only thing that existed was the essence of me that was present, and I was feeling all of it. I knew that I was there, and a voice from my mind was saying, “But you have to get out of bed because you want to go to the meeting with John and Romana and the rest.”

And I’m saying, “How am I going to do that? I cannot! I cannot move!” It was truly an anguish, and it lasted for three to four hours.

I went to take a shower and start preparing myself, and suddenly I heard this voice saying, “Let it go now. Let it go now.” And I saw in the center of my body a cocoon, as you said, falling from my heart, through all of my body, like birthing something. And it was birth and death. Birth and death. It was exactly the same essence. I let it go, totally. Again, no pain, no fear, and everything changed after five minutes.

I stand up, I went to the kitchen, and to take my bath, and something much better happened. I had a picture that a friend of mine in Canada had drawn for me, which shows two birds united like in sacred union, like (participant puts her hands together like two birds united), and I keep it in my living room. It’s two pieces interconnected like that (hand gesture). And I’m not looking at them every day, and that time my soul said, “Look at them.”

And I turned and looked at them, and they had moved, by themselves. Instead of being united, the one had separated and was looking at the other. Yes. Yes!

And at that moment I knew that something had shifted permanently for me. I don’t know what.

Johannes: Indeed, and that’s an important place to be. “I don’t know what it was” is saying, The mind doesn’t understand anymore. And that’s a beautiful thing.

Participant 2: Yeah. And I left it as it is so I could come, got in my car, and on the road, in the middle of the road I saw a worker saying, “You have to detour. You have to go from another road.” Yes! “You have to find a new way,” the worker said. A new road, not knowing where I’m going.

I stopped the car, sent a message to my friend in Canada and said, “Listen, I am at zero point now. I don’t know where I’m going, but I know I’m going to Maria! (laughter)

She was laughing and said to me, “Keep going! You are rewiring your head.”

Johannes: Hmm…

Participant 2: And I said, “Yes, I know!”

I came from this new road, which was faster, easier, and it brought me right here.

Johannes: Indeed.

Participant 2: After all this experience, I still have a question. That is why I wanted to come here and ask John, so I wouldn’t miss it. In this new experience we are living, I want, truly, to ask my soul to have a partner, and it’s the only reason why I stay here on Earth.

Johannes: Hmm…

Participant 2: And this is my question: Why isn’t he here yet?

(laughter, and someone says, “We all have this same question!)

Participant 2: And I want a certain answer to this question from my soul.

Johannes: Indeed. Indeed, and your soul has an answer for you.


First of all, I want to acknowledge this beautiful experience that you’ve shared. Your soul knew what we were going to talk about.

Participant 2: I know.

Johannes: And indeed, you are all coming to the point of emergence, and you have to understand that the butterfly, the life of the butterfly, is entirely different from the life of the caterpillar. The caterpillar cannot comprehend the life of the butterfly.


You see—we will allow your own soul to speak to you right now:

Participant’s soul: You see, my dear human, you have a partner. The most amazing partner that you have ever imagined, and that is me, your soul.

Let that in.

Let me in.

Focus on creating and building this relationship with me, your soul.


Once we’ve built this relationship together, and brought it to the point where it isn’t even a relationship anymore, where it is human and soul together as one—so in love, so full of Self that there’s no more need for another—ahh, then look out!

As John found out, suddenly, three years ago, the love of his life was there. Well, the human love of his life, we’ll say, because the real love of his life was his own soul. And once he had that relationship with Self, with his own soul, then it was possible for his soul to bring in the most amazing and perfect reflection of that love. Of Soul’s love.

So, it’s not exactly what the human wants to hear, but we think you can feel it.

Participant 2: I’ve heard this, these words, every day for the last year. And truly, I have let my soul enter. I have had this conversation.

Participant’s soul: Indeed.

Participant 2: And he is already talking and informing me exactly about it: “Let me guide you to where you want to be, where you truly want to be.”

Participant’s soul: Indeed.

Participant 2: That’s why I wanted to come here, because (doorbell sounds in background) I was saying to my soul, “Please Soul, I want a love like John and Romana have.”

Participant’s soul: You can indeed have that. But first, come into the void. Live in the void. Live in the void that is beyond all the questions, all the needs, all the understanding. Simply the void. Live there. Get comfortable there. And then, prepare to be amazed.

Johannes: Hmm… It sounds like dinner is here.

Participant 3 (translator): Can I ask a question now?

Johannes: Yes indeed!

Participant 3: Okay, my question is, to my soul, are there more lessons for me to have? Or have I reached the point where I can somehow be ready, be considered ready, for what’s coming? Am I to expect more trials and, you know, adventures, painful adventures in store?

Participant’s soul: Let’s say it this way: The moment you are ready to release the lessons, the sooner your life will change for the better.

Participant 3: Right.

Participant’s soul: You don’t need lessons anymore.

Participant 3: That’s right. That’s what I feel.

Participant’s soul: You just need to come into this void.

Participant 3: So it’s the void. The answer is the void.

Participant’s soul: The answer is the void.

Participant 3: No more lessons. I don’t want any lessons.

Participant’s soul: No. And you’ll find things pop up in your life that feel like: Oh my god, what’s happening? Maybe this is some kind of lesson!

Come back to the void. Stop asking why. Stop trying to figure it out.

Participant 3: Right.

Participant’s soul: Come back to the void and watch how it resolves itself. Watch how the situation resolves itself. It might not always look the way you thought it should look.

John and Romana thought they were going to be on Mykonos today, and then they got stopped at the port, and it was a shock. It surprised them. They started asking all these questions: How could this have happened? How? Why? And gradually they came back to themselves and stopped trying to understand, because their souls know exactly what is happening and maybe even why, but it’s not in a way that the human can understand.


So, allow these experiences, but stop thinking of them as lessons. They are just experiences.

Come back to the void. Let all the questions go. Let all the lessons go. Simply be in the unknown with the experience.

Does that answer your question?

Participant 3: Yes! Yes.

Johannes: Okay. Is there anything else?

Participants: Thank you. Thank you, John. Thank you so much.

Johannes: Hmm…

It is our pleasure, and I speak on behalf of every soul present.


And this experience would not have happened if John and Romana had had what their humans thought they should have!


Come into the void.

Let the questions go, let the understanding go. There is a wisdom available to you now that is so far beyond anything that your mind can possibly comprehend.


And I, your soul, will meet you there.

And so it is.

* Note: Conscious channeling is an act of translating incoming feelings into human words the mind can understand. It is an imprecise process and sometimes the wrong words come out of my mouth. In the recording it is usually quite obvious what the intended meaning was, but it’s not so obvious in the transcript, so they must be corrected. Those words or phrases, if any, are marked with an asterisk (*) since they are different from the recording.

Also, since spoken word is very different from properly written word, along with my soul I have edited the text slightly. My (our) focus here is not on good grammar, but on clarity and readability without making it too confusing for those who choose to read along while listening to the audio recording. Changes that do not impact the meaning are not marked.

In transcribing these messages I have chosen to include many of the various ahhs, hmms, and other non-word sounds that come out of my mouth while channeling, because they indicate a moment to pause, take a breath, and reflect upon what has just been said. —John

* Nota: La canalización consciente es un acto de traducción de los sentimientos que llegan en palabras humanas para que la mente pueda entenderlos. Es un proceso impreciso y a veces salen de mi boca palabras equivocadas. En la grabación generalmente es bastante obvio cuál era el significado deseado, pero no es tan obvio en la transcripción, por lo que deben ser corregidas. Estas palabras o frases, si las hubiera, están marcadas con un asterisco (*), ya que son diferentes a las de la grabación.

Además, como la palabra hablada es muy diferente de la palabra correctamente escrita, junto con mi alma he editado ligeramente el texto. Mi (nuestra) atención no se centra en la buena gramática, sino en la claridad y la legibilidad sin que resulte demasiado confuso para aquellos que decidan leer mientras escuchan la grabación de audio. Los cambios que no afectan al significado no están marcados.

Al transcribir estos mensajes he decidido incluir muchos de los diversos ahhs, hmms y otros sonidos sin palabras que salen de mi boca mientras canalizo, porque indican un momento para hacer una pausa, tomar un respiro y reflexionar sobre lo que se acaba de decir. —John

  1. My key moment: The caterpillar does not understand the life of the butterfly. And feel love for both.
    Thank you
