You then stop as you feel this is the right place to and as soon as you stop you hear a voice. ‘Welcome child, I am Venus of Willendorf, the Mother of all. You are inside my womb, where everything is created. This is a place you can feel safe and secure. I will comfort you when you need it and help you through your self work.’ You do feel very comforted in this dark cave and you know you are safe.
