I have just got back from a trip to Scotland’s first city Edinburgh. Of course, that will massively incense the Glaswegians, but in my own personal terms I have come to really like Edinburgh, if only because it has given me some opportunities to do some interesting dowsing. In a subsequent post I will be talking about the so-called “Rose Line” (or ‘Rosy Line’) – a long ley line that can be drawn from Edinburgh down to Cardiff.In this post, I will be revealing some of the secrets The Stone of Destiny – now proudly displayed alongside Scotland’s “Honours” – the equivalent to the English “Crown Jewels” in Edinburgh Castle.
There are many stories concerning the origin of the stone including that it was Jacob’s Pillow, or that it came from an Egyptian source such as a pyramid. It certainly seems like an unusual form of sandstone, and not one that seems very familiar to me. Scottish geology tends to be more igneous and metamorphic than sandstone rock. It was used by St.Patrick to crown kings, and it may have come from Ireland at some point. We simply don’t know. What we do know is that it has had almost 800 years of being used to crown Scottish royalty, and as such an artefact it seemed to me like a prime candidate for some dowsing. Here was the reaction when the stone was returned to Scotland in 1996:
“The Stone returns home…
On St Andrews Day, 30 November 1996, the Stone of Destiny returned north of the border and amid much pomp and ceremony, was installed in Edinburgh Castle, taking its place alongside those other symbols of national identity, the Honours of Scotland. About 10,000 people lined the Royal Mile to watch the procession of dignitaries and troops escort the stone from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to the castle. In a service at St Giles cathedral, the Church of Scotland Moderator, the Right Reverend John MacIndoe, formally accepted the Stone’s return, saying it would ‘strengthen the proud distinctiveness of the people of Scotland’.” (source: Visit Scotland)
So, what’s all the fuss about? Here are some facts and figures concerning the Stone of Destiny that you are unlikely to read in any tourist guidebook:-
- The stone registers as a 6/10 strength energy through the very thick glass that currently protects it. Inside the glass case it registers an 8/10 strength.
- The energy of the stone is now gradually depleting and diminishing in strength. I felt this was due to the fact that no Scottish royalty was being crowned over the stone, and therefore it was not being invested with the intentions and attentions that it used to get. This was just my opinion, however.
- The stone on display registers as being the original stone, even though it looks oddly smooth for a native sandstone, and parts of it look like alabaster rather than sandstone. Only the occasional fine sparkle gives away its true heritage.
- The Stone of |Destiny originates from a Middle-Eastern country, not from the British Isles.
- Its power has been imbued by those who have invested it with energy by intention and glorification. It has no inherent energy of its own.
- No character mentioned in The Bible has ever touched or handled that stone.
The National War Memorial, with its hanging statue of the Archangel Michael is the source of the power and energy that radiates from Edinburgh Castle. When I dowsed to find the source of the energy I was taken into the memorial building and to The Shrine where The Casket is the focal point for all visitors and their memories.
There is little else of energetic value in the whole of Edinburgh castle except one sword on display in the military museum, and some form of artefact kept in the headquarters next to the museum, which the public are not allowed into.
In a future post I want to talk about Arthur’s Seat – a stunning backdrop to Edinburgh which is a meeting point for a pair of very special ley lines.
