Some might accuse Gwas and I of embellishment when we write-up our post. In all honesty it is the reverse. Some experiences (or rather coincidences)we have are so bizarre that even we have difficulty believing them (and its us that they have happened to!) I digress. We had just left the wonderful Luds church and had arrived at a nearby well dedicated to St Helen.
Now if you recall, all the way back to last Imbolc. I was given my Knights Quest at a well dedicated to St Helen in Cumbria and here I was full spiral so to speak at another St Helens dedicated well. We had some difficulty in finding the well and when we did, it was disappointingly devoid of life and energy. Gwas and Mike wandered off to do their work and I was left to ponder this site.
As Mike had observed, the well didn’t even have any water in it. Curiously however I had grabbed a full bottle of water from the car (parked some distance away) as I got out and had brought it with me. Was this an opportunity to seed the well with water and energy? The dowsing rods said Yes and I was clambering over the side of the well wall in an instant.
I asked what I needed and the answer pointed to crystals, again I had for some reason brought along a pouchful of crystals (which I don’t normally bring). So I had two of the three ingredients, crystals and water. The third was incense, which I had unfortunately used up at Luds church. I pondered going to look for Gwas when a blast of wind blew my pack of the wall and the empty packet of incense slid out. I looked at as a sign to go and get some, when my eye caught that there were two sticks that had slid out of what I had thought to be an empty pack. Coincidence.
I then reached into my pocket for the lighter and realised that I had given it to Mike earlier on. Again I was about to get up when coincidently Mike popped his head over the wall. I laughed and shouted for the lighter.
I sat besides this little energetic setup and conjured up energy from the earth. As I did I let the water fall over and around the site. I had a feeling to do this is all. After intending energy to flow from the well again. I wanted to know if there was now any energy in flow? Yes. Excellent! I followed the flow and it went along the downhill path that the water from the well would have taken if it hadn’t been dry. Wow!
I asked whether my work would last and got a response of no. It was temporary. I asked for help in maintaining this flow and was led to a nearby hawthorn tree. I asked whether the tree would/could be encouraged to main the energy flow? Yes. Excellent. I stood under the tree and guided its energies towards the well.
I was still not done however because even with the tree, the energy flow would not be sustained. I looked around at the surrounding landscape and noted the rise and fall of the land. Now I know that energy loves to follow these dips and curves so I asked whether I could direct the energies from this land to the well. Yes. Brilliant. I walked about the land herding the energies to the sacred well and after some time I knew the job was complete.
It is a lovely feeling when you get the sense of a job well done. I returned to the well and the crystal layout. I sat by it and just tuned out. I wasn’t meditating or indeed visualising. Just peaceful and contented rest. It was at this time that the same St Helen appeared to me (Okay I know, sounds weird right?) but she did so what can I say. Just as before she showed me the path of blue keys and invited me to follow it. Once more unto the breech I thought and stepped up to the challenge.
The day was turning into a sparkling occasion and more fun was to be had at the Bridestones Sacred site.
