In this post I will be explaining how I was shown that the next stage in my quest to regain the energy of my ancestors is in Ireland, and that a new form of energy at the other end of the spectrum from death energy was discovered, which I will call “conception energy”.
After visiting Dinas Bran we made a quick stop off at Vale Crucis Abbey, Llangollen’s imposing ruins that block the very light of the day. With its original furbishing it must have been resplendent. In the weak rays of a Winter morning the sun was trying to refurbish the walls with light and in parts it succeeded at re-introducing warmth. Out of the sunlight the shadows were seasonably chilly.
For me Vale Crucis Abbey was the location where I had been set upon a quest to recover ancestor energies when I encountered the shade of a holy man called St Duignan. St Duignan, I discovered through dowsing and research, had come over to Vale Crucis from Ireland. The Duignans were intimately linked to my ancestors and the region I had always known my family to have originated from. I could find no record of “Saint” Duignan in Ireland, so I presume that his canonisation may have resulted from his services whilst in Wales. I have more detective work to do concerning this.
Ancestor energy is a term I have used to describe the subtle energy imprints left at a particular place of power (a power centre, perhaps) by our ancestors – those family connections from whom we are descended and have a genetic link to.
As Kal flitted around finding a meditation spot to work in I began to ask whether there was anything I could do here that would progress my spiritual path. Surely, in a place with such particular links for me, I would find some information source or task that I could learn from. The rods came out and I began to objectively quiz them. They gave a rapid response. NO. No? NO. Nothing to do here! Obviously, the next question is “Why?”, but as we know, “Why”-type questions are notoriously difficult to get answers to through dowsing, which requires something of a binary technique (questions with distinct YES or NO answers give the most trustworthy responses).
I began to narrow the scope down by investigating the circumstances of what I had been asking about. I had wanted to interact with the shade of St Duignan – the answer had been NO. I began to question along this line.
- Was the shade of St Duignan present here at this site? NO.
- Did the shade still exist in the form I had encountered it? YES. Then it must simply be elsewhere.
- Was the shade in this country? NO.
- Was it in Ireland? YES. Aha! But why….? Always the ‘why’!
- Had the shade returned to the place from which it originated? YES.
- Does that mean that it had returned to the place that it was born when physically human? YES.
I knew where this would be. I had done my research and have a trip planned there for late Spring this year. Now that I had located the shade, the remaining spirit energy of someone possibly linked to my own ancestors, I was curious to know why it was important that the shade returned to its place of origin. This seemed like the most important thing I could possibly need to know. An overwhelming feeling of importance flooded through me. I was riveted to the spot. This was something vital for me to know about my quest this year – something that would guide me way. The hunt began with the dowsing rods and I kept my intuitive senses alert for any other feelings or information that might filter into my tiny blank brain.
The benefit of energy
How do we know what energy benefits us and at which times? I only know through using dowsing rods to determine this, and I leave the difficult calculations up to the higher intelligence that guides my responses. One day I hope to know enough to have a go at being able to work it our for myself, but there are so many factors at play that it’s a seemingly impossible task. At this moment I decided to ask about beneficial energies. Maybe that would be helpful? There were no beneficial energies available at Vale Crucis, according to the dowsing rods! None at all!
This led me to conclude a few things. Firstly, the shade of St Duignan had moved back to Ireland, taking the link to my ancestors with it. I would have to follow it in order to re-establish connection. I would have to travel to Ireland, find the shade, and then interact with this energy form in order to follow the next part of my ancestor energy quest. It had “hopped” to the next point on the path, and I needed to go find it again – much like Kal’s ‘energy double’. It was like the ancestor energies were a trail that had to be followed, and I had done the first stage. I would have to go to the next location in order to reclaim the energy from that place. The energies here at Vale Crucis had already been reclaimed.
Now I knew that my trip to Ireland this year was going to be really important, and that there was a certain inevitability about it now. It would form the second stage in the chain link of ancestor energies, and I would be going “home” to find and collect the very essence of my ancestors’ energies wherever they now remained. It was an exciting prospect.
One of the delightful finds within the abbey’s bleak high stone walls was a shot of colour provided by a bunch of snowdrops. The pristine white flowers were dangling from their verdant stems in the exact same spot as the year before, but this time they were two months earlier than last year! Two months! They were making an appearance in the middle of Winter – something has gone awry with the timing of the seasons this year, that’s for sure. Lately I have seen roses blooming and it’s still January! Mad.
The Concept of Conception
Despite the seeming lack of beneficial energies at the site for me this year, there was one energy that I found interesting. I asked the rods whether there was any “interesting” energy for me to find and they led me to a spot quite close to the snowdrops and near to my power centre. When I went through the usual categories of energy that I used to determine the type of subtle energy form I was dealing with I couldn’t find a match! Was this something new, then? It was certainly something that I had never dowsed before. I can’t remember how we managed to identify it, but Kal came up with the suggestion that it might be conception energy. I think we had gone through all other types and were trying to identify a point in the human lifecycle when the energy might be present, and he came up with birth or conception as the point when the energy was created.
Some further dowsing questions along this line of enquiry revealed that it was indeed an energetic imprint of a moment of conception that had taken place at that spot. It was a sort of “memory” imprint – an imprint created by the emotional outburst that goes with orgasm and the magical moment of conception itself. I know that the actual moment of conception may have been some time later than copulation, but it seems as though something, possibly some spirit form, had engaged with the process at that moment, at that place, and this was marked as a special place by having that emotional energetic imprint remain locked in the earth and stone of the abbey.
There is much more to learn about this energy, I’m sure, but to find a new energy after years of dowsing was rather heart-warming, and in an English Winter I take whatever warmth I can from such episodes.
