I sometimes find myself doing some very strange things without knowing why. This night was one of those strange evenings, and yet the strangeness would continue beyond this night and lead to an even stranger conclusion by the time I had finished unravelling all of the clues.
I had decided that at some point in the week I would need to go somewhere. The weather was good, so I got out my dowsing rods and began to enquire about a suitable place for me to learn something that would progress me on my spiritual path – the usual request – general and open. The responses I got seemed to indicate that I could find such a place in the county of Shropshire, and that the place existed on the Megalithic Portal, so it was only a matter of bringing up a list of sites in Shropshire and working through a process of elimination to find the site that I was expected to go to. Soon I found it – The Berth – an ancient hillfort and associated pool near the village of Marton a short distance from the main A5 road. I did some reading on the Megalithic Portal about access to the site – not good. Permission from the local farmer is suggested. Well then, a covert visit may be in order given that I would be arriving late at night.
The Berth [Portal]
I put on my dancing trousers (well, the fleece-lined ones – it might be cold) and began to journey southwards from Cheshire. Soon I was past the eastern edges of Wales and skirting the western fringes of England. Within an hour I had arrived at Marton in the dark of the late evening and was searching around on a small-scale OS map for the perfect place to park and navigate through the fields to the hillfort. Luckily, without too much fuss, I found such a place down a road marked “Unsuitable for motor vehicles.” No kidding! Good job I was in a four-wheel drive machine.
I parked at the only place down the narrow country lane that would fit a car. Using my print-out of a low-level OS map I headed off further down the lane. Five minutes later I realised I must have gone past the entry point I was looking for and doubled back. The entry point turned out to be where I had parked the car! When will I learn to trust my intuition? Such a hard thing to do!
Several times I had to stop myself from asking the obvious question, “What the hell are you doing in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night?“. Luckily, I didn’t allow myself to even try to formulate an answer, but instead began to walk across the fields towards what I hoped was the right place, breathing in the still-warm evening air and wishing I hadn’t muffled myself up because I was beginning to overheat! This is October, right? Supposed to be cold and damp? Instead we are in the tail end of a heatwave and it was still 15 degrees late into the evening. Bizarre weather!
Fortune seemed to be on my side, guiding me towards something whose very impulse and importance I could sense like a scent on the night air.
Kal had just flown back from New York where he had been taking a well-earned break from his work in Devon. I, too, had just got back from my holidays in Northumberland and was eager to get out and about to fulfill the third and final part of my Spring Equinox quest. You may remember that I had been given the promise of some form of change that would take place in me, possibly to promote my ability to grow plants, and that tis had involved me identifying three stars in three constellations that had the right energies for me to use int he process of this transformation. Having done the previous two site visits in one day (Lud’s Church and then Arthur’s Cave) I now had a final destination that was even further afeidl that I wanted to get to – Beddarthur – a sort of stone circle in the far reaches of Pembrokeshire.
Sunday 29th May began with spots of rain and dark cloud making the whole sky grey and uninviting. I had just decided to make the journey to the Preseli Mountains in Pembrokeshire when I looked at my phone to check for messages. There was one from Kal, which was a surprise because he had been unusually silent for the last week or so since I got back from Paris. I was about to send out a search party when I noticed the text message and read it. “What are you doing today? Wanna meet up? Usual place?” Aha! So, he was alive, and was around too. I texted him back – “I’m going out – wanna join me on a quest?” How could he resist? He didn’t. We agreed to meet an hour later which gave me time to get everything prepared.
When it came to leave I drove off with Kal eager to tell me his tales of New York. We hadn’t got far when I realised I had forgotten two very vital ingredients – my staff and my wallet! About turn! Kal revealed that such things were a major part of his two weeks in New York too. He had done plenty of going back over his trail in his adventures, but I’ll let him tell you all about that in his own time. For now, let’s continue with the story of the stone circle in Pembrokeshire. The journey was tediously slow. I have noticed this about this particular task. It seems that there is a particular timing to be achieved and the universal forces at work are ensuring that my timing is correct by placing barriers in my way such that I arrive at the correct time. On my other day out to the other connected sites in Derbyshire and Monmounthshire I encountered the same thing – really slow traffic getting in front of me at every turn, impeding my progress. So much so that on the first day out I could only do two of the sites in stead of all three in one day, which was my original intention. I felt that this was all designed for a reason yet still it was very difficult to live with.Driving for four hours at 40mph becomes quite a cross to bear when you are eager to get things done. Nevertheless, it seems that this slowing down of progress was necessary – you will see why timing becomes important when I mention the energy of the constellation Perseus.
We arrived and began to walk up the hill. After a few minutes I stopped – I had forgotten something! The small hand-worn stone that I had collected from Le Jardin Des Tuileries in Paris during a psychic moment had been left in the car, even though I had got it out and shown it to Kal, and then left it in a prominent position, ready to be taken out once we parked up. How could I have forgotten it? I had to go back down the hill and retrieve it from the car. Yet again I had to retrace my steps. I blamed the episode on Kal. Clearly, his strange energies were creating this phenomenon, I joked.
We arrived at the summit of Carn Sian and caught sight of our destination marker – a gathering of angled bluestone rocks called Carn Bica that were the place where several paths came together on the way to Carn Menyn. Carn Menyn is the mountain from which the bluestones that were transported to Stonehenge came from. That particular summit was not our destination today – today I only had eyes from finding the small stone circles known as Beddarthur. As we sat on the angular rock outcrop overlooking Carn Menyn I spotted the stone circle just below us in the saddle between the two mountain peaks of Carn Sian and Carn Menyn. We descended the short distance and prowled around the outside of the circle warily, looking for an energetic entrance and assessing the circle. The first thing to notice was that it was not a circle! It was much more of a lozenge shape, an oval flattened at either end and with almost straight sides that only curved slightly at the ends. The stones at each end were embedded rather than prominent, giving the feeling of entrance points, and each of the standing stones that made the circle was angled inwards. The whole structure looked like a human rib cage rather than any stone circle we had seen before.
I entered by feeling for a space in the energy field. I asked permission to enter from the guardian spirit and felt like I was able, nay pulled, to enter. Straight away Kal took my dowsing rods and began to look for the best place for him to be. I already knew where my perfect spot was, my power centre, and I walked towards it and bumped into Kal as the rods in his hands circled on exactly the same spot. We laughed. Looks like we would be fighting for the best place! Someone had also found it to be an energetic centre because they had left a hand-sized chunk of quartz that was striated with layers of the local bluestone too. Interesting. For now I left if there. There was no time for playing about here – I had work to do and it would be a difficult and involved task, I felt, so I had better get on with it. This was the culmination of three sites and their energies, and I had not a clue how to proceed to make this whole energetic transformation work. The pressure was building.
A few weeks ago I was back at Woodhenge as part of my travels from Arbor Low to Christchurch. I was busy tracing the line through a barrow which I later found out was called “Ratfyn Barrow” locally, and which was positioned on a hill just south of Durrington and west of Bulford. Woodhenge’s location was a pleasant place to stop off and look around with the dowsing rods again, and also to look at why I had never gone to look at Durrington Walls which is right next to Woodhenge!
I stopped off at Woodhenge in order to have some lunch, like most of the other people who were there it seems, but unlike them I actually went into circles of concrete posts (they mark the original positions of the timber structure). There were several cars parked at the car park next to the site when I arrived but no-one seemed to be visiting the place. Later, when one couple of girls appeared at the site they lasted, oh…twenty seconds? Long enough to walk from one end to the other, read a sign, and then leave. OK, maybe a minute, but no more! As Kal and I have said many times, what are you expecting to find unless you are prepared to spend time tuning into the place? I expect many people imagine some information board is going to reveal all the site’s secrets instantly, and perhaps they are disappointed by most sacred ancient sites when they don’t actually reveal much to the casual visitor? I often feel like shouting out, “Buy some dowsing rods!!” but it’s a pointless rant.
I had the place to myself to dowse and I began by asking a question that Kal had sent me by text message (ah, techno-pagan that I am!).
- Were there any of the shades there that he had brought with him from Barnstaple recently? There were – only three though, and I knew that he had brought many more than that, so where were the others?
- Were these shades nearby? No.
- Had they departed of their own accord? Yes.
- Had they followed a ley line? No. I stopped for a moment to think about other possible methods of egress….
- Had they attached themselves to visitors, perhaps? YES. All of them? No, some had dissipated due to the energies of the site, and the work Kal had done by burying one of this crystals. This had seen 25% of them shades being grounded and released, but the rest had attached themselves to visitors!
- Were they doing any harm to these people? No.
- Were they having a beneficial effect upon their hosts? YES.
I asked if I could release the three remaining shades and got a positive response. With the help of the dowsing rods I visited the site of each of the shades in turn and then, once I had felt its presence, I called upon some spirit guides that I use for this purpose and they helped me to remove the shades safely and for their benefit. None were too reluctant to go, it seemed, which was comforting (I don’t know why, but I guess it makes me feel like it was the right thing to do if they wanted to go anyway).
On the way out I dowsed a ritual path that would retain all of the energies that I had collected, or rather, would prevent me from losing energy. Blooper alert - watch me heading in a sun-aligned direction at first and then correcting it for moon-aligned folk (such as myself). If I wasn’t filming it I would have giggled. Here is the result:
On our Llangollen day out the furthest point away from home was close to one of our favourite circles, Moel-Ty-Uchaf, but this day we were not going to climb up the incredibly steep track to that circle. This day we were parking mere feet away from the entrance to the circle called Tyfos.
The Legend and Symbolism of Typhon/Tyfos
The stone circle is named after one of the many names for the god Typhon- the great snake of Greek mythology that Hercules is destined to wrestle into submission. We see here the replaying of the battle between the God of the Sun (Hercules – the ultimate solar hero) and the God of the Moon (Typhon – the ultimate lunar god).
On the subject of Typhon being associated with the lunar aspects – the professor of astronomy Gerald Hawkins recognised that the 56 holes that Aubrey had identified around Stonehenge represented a method of plotting the lunar cycles over long periods of time:
“Hawkins argued that the Aubrey Holes were used to keep track of this long time period and could accurately predict the recurrence of a lunar eclipse on the same azimuth, that which aligned with the Heel Stone, every 56 years.
On astronomical symbolism several analysts from Gerald Hawkins to Anthony Johnson (ref. 3 ; pages 259-260) have noted that Plutarch ( in the Moralia, V) reported that Typhon / Seth in Egyptian and Greek myth was identified as the shadow of the Earth which covers the Moon during lunar eclipses. Plutarch further records that the Pythagoreans symbolically associated Typhon with a polygon of 56 sides. The connection of 56 to lunar eclipses is explicit.” (source: Wikipedia and Stonehenge Decoded)
What could Tyfos be a symbol of? The snake image seemed to hint at the earth energies, always described as serpents, later to become demonised by western cultures such as the Romans or Greeks and then on through the advent of Christianity. Also, we find that Typhos is a giant too. Again, the connection between the supposed construction of some of these megalithic sites by giants, or by people of ‘great stature’, if we can put it that way.
How can we therefore reconcile this mythological information with the information that we gained when we were there? One of the first things I did when I got on site was to check the astrological alignment of the circle. It was not aligned to any star except our own – The Sun. The site was solar-aligned and filled with solar energy. The only power centres that we found were three joined male centres – sun-aligned energy forms. If Tyfos was a lunar god, why was the site now solar aligned? One theory could be that the site was transformed. or re-aligned, maybe even rebuilt to reflect the “new” god of the Sun – to wrestle the power from the older Moon god. Pure speculation – I don’t have any evidence for this. Only archaeology or archaeological dowsing would find good evidence for such an idea.
Kal seemingly picked the site at random because it sounded nice, but now he feels there is more to it than that. I will leave him to explain that aspect, but for me the Tyfos visit was a purely practical encounter with the energies. Once we had obtained permission to visit the site (easily done – the guy was very nice) we set about tracing the energies. I found one problem line which permeated the circle and when I dowsed for the source I was led back towards the house. Not wanting to appear rude I didn’t go all the way up to the house, but my intuition was that this was the source of this unhelpful and unhappy energy leaking into or being attracted into the stone circle.
I asked if I could do anything about blocking or healing this energy and found that I could. Well, that’s all well and good but SHOULD I re-balance these energies? Could it be done without having any detrimental effects anywhere else that this site was linked to? The answer was a strong YES. Then clearly I should do what I could. To re-balance the energies I would need to re-balance the energies. How does one re-balance a male-dominated site? By introducing some female energies of course! But where from? As I asked the question I looked up slightly to scan the surroundings and found that I was already starting at a tall evergreen yew tree that was growing healthy and proud in the corner of the house’s garden bordering the field containing the stone circle. This tree would be the source of the female energy.
I wasn’t happy just to begin linking up to it – firstly I had to approach the tree to ask for help. Kal and I wandered over to see if the tree would agree to this idea. Surprisingly almost immediately we both got a pleasant positive feel from the tree and agreed we had the go-ahead signs to continue our work.
I lit some sandlewood incense in the increasingly strong and cold wind, and placed three sticks at specific places where the dowsing rods indicated I should. Almost the moment they were placed and the tree was invited to let its energies flow into the circle Kal was dowsing a zig-zag flow of energy back into the stones that formed the low-lying circle. I followed his dowsing up by doing the same – dowsing back from the yew tree to the circle and I got the same Z-form path from incense stick to stick until the line ended at the very stone that Kal had placed his water bottle on top of. More than a coincidence, I felt. Female energy <- > water. This was the stone that Kal had intuited would be the best place to charge up his water bottle when he first arrived.
With the job done and the sun creeping lower and giving off less warmth than we would have liked we dowsed if our job was complete – it was. Time to retreat to the car and get ourselves warmed up ready for the next few sites of that day. As we left we discussed the coincidences that had arisen, and the way in which Kal had felt he was called, nay directed, to do particular tasks that had all turned out to contribute to this re-balancing work here at this stone circle. Sometimes it is difficult to gauge just how much our own free will is involved in these processes, but that’s a philosophical conundrum – for now we had done good work and were proud of our invisible mending.
This post is going to be an ongoing one as I am in the middle of the tale so to speak and would like to try and record it as it progresses rather at the end. Let’ see how it works…
My meditations at the Hurlers revealed to me that it was most definitely time (and indeed a necessity) for me to be merged, reunited (er whatever) with my energetic double.
In previous experiences I had gained the knowledge of how to call it and how to protect myself from some of the more dangerous effects of its energy.
15th December 2010 ~ Rose Quartz
I thought it was time I figured out if I needed anything on this quest. I wondered if my supplies of esotoria were sufficient…a curious thought in and of itself as I have never thought to ask such a question before.
As it happened there was something missing…I asked whether I had sufficient incense? Yes. How about crystals? No. O, What did I need? I went through some crystal names and came up with Rose Quartz, how many? Seven! Even as I determined the answer a thought came to me, I knew where I could get some crystals, here out in the middle of Devon.
A couple of weeks ago I did some map dowsing and was directed down some side streets to a little shop that sold arcana, including crystals, excellent!
I visited the shop during my lunch time and as I walked around it I realised that the guy was woefully short on Rose Quartz, seriously! He had 6 rose quartz crystals, six! I stuck my hands into my pocket in frustration and felt something in them…I had forgotten, I had one rose quartz crystal myself. Perfect!
16th December 2010 ~ Gathering of the watchers
I was wandering through the local town Barnstaple at lunch time when I felt the uncomfortable drag of energy from the mid-town church yard. I wasn’t falling for it of course and walked by the entrance. Then on my return up the street I felt it again and this time I got a intuitive nudge and quickly put some protection up and wandered into the energetic crowd.
It isn’t that bad a feeling I have to say, i’m just being a bit melodramatic perhaps. Anyway I wandered about the place wondering what “this” was all about. I didn’t need my dowsing rods to be led to a particular spot in the square.
I went over and sat down, awaiting any thoughts, feelings or communication. And I got it…”We want to come with you?”
What? Who and what wants to come with me, and where for that matter? Then I got, it the Energetic Shrouds wanted to come with me when I merge with my double. Wow! Seriously! And how do I take you with me? In the crystals. Ok, Hop on in then.
Yes, it was that simple, no meditation, no ceremony, just “hop on in.”
18th December 2010 – Amazing
I awoke today and thought it was about 8am. It had snowed the night before but I had had an idea. Stonehenge! The place I could merge with my double…Stonehenge. I got up all excited and before anything else, I dowsed if this was the case, Yes!
Not! I checked out of the window and the snow had done a number on the world. It was blanketed. Feeling a bit disappointed I got dressed all the while my mind was going… You can go, ok it might take you longer, but you could get there. That’s when the second shoe dropped…instead of it being 8am as I had thought when I finally looked at a clock it was 9:45. O boy! I have to say I havent been that far out with my waking up time in a long while, perhaps it was the xmas party last night…hmmm…
So, I was in a dilemma, Time was passing and the world was covered in a few inches of snow, should I take the risk and go on a 150 mile journey, when the radio 4 weather people were hailing the roads as “treacherous” and “travel only if you need to”
Does Edge Wizardry and reclaiming your energetic double count as a “need”?
As you know, being a one for signs and omens, I kept a weary eye out for anything meaningful. As I got changed my Rose Quartz crystal dropped out onto the wooden floor with a clatter.
Some signs are subtle, some you have to make up.
It was all I needed, I was off, the car was laden with about 3 inches (metric??) of snow that was fairly easy to be rid off, navigating out of the back streets? That was an entirely different matter. Phew!
I was off, with faith in my heart and food purchased from a garage (trademark Druidic practice). The Sat Nav was telling me 2 hours and 50 minutes to Stonehenge, I laughed…in this weather!
Ice, snow and ultra careful drivers were out in force today, even when the road was wet – above freezing people. Anyway I had got to the M5 some 50 miles from where I live and had stopped to clear all the junk of the windscreen (the water squirters had frozen) when a thought came to me…
Side note: I just thought, where do these thoughts come from? When we say “a thought came to me”?
Anyway, a thought came to me, I needed to go someplace to prepare first? Seriously! In this weather…I pulled my rods out of the car and asked, did I? Yes, could I do without? No. Could I prep at Stonehenge? No. As we say in England “Buggah”.
It was freezing cold as I pondered where I could go to do this prep. Glastonbury was on the way-ish, would Glastonbury be suitable?No. Bugg…
The another thought occurred (?) what about Avebury, would there do? Yes, o yes. I got in the car and Miss SatNav told me it would be some 2 hours to Avebury. Whatever! Lets go! So it was off to Avebury first, in the snow, on (Radio4) treacherous roads.
Suprisingly the M5 (55 miles) was completely cleared of snow (thank the gritters) and even more suprisingly the M4 (30 miles) was completely clear thus I was doing excellent time.
Did I mention that Stonehenge closes at 4pm in the winter…Yes English Heritage come along and fold it up and put it away for the night!
So I was excited as I pulled of the M4 and the sat nav was reporting another 25 miles or so. Excellent! Not, the road off the M4 was as Radio4 would say, treacherous. There was only me on it for a fair few miles, but I was doing 20 to 45 depending on the ice and in some bits it was 10 miles too. Phew! Still after following a truly annoying tractor for a couple of miles. I had arrived, Avebury.
What is with the British and snow? The carpark for Avebury was closed? What! and all the streets had a “Don’t Park here or else” warning. So I just drove out a bit an slid (literally) into the side of a field, that is going to be fun to get out of.
Avebury had a few people wandering around the stones, not enough to cause a Edge Wizard problems. I walked amongst the stones for a while, acquainting myself with the Genius Loci. It is a lovely place, very welcoming. But I had business to attend to and as my Latin teach would say, Tempus Fugit!
So I dowsed to be taken to the best spot for me to prepare for my merging. It was along an odd path indeed, it was in and out of each stone, but doing a circle around each of them. People watched as I dowsed this dance amongst the stones and ending up at a missing stone marker, around which the rods just spiralled me in (quite dizzy infact).
So I questioned? Seriously? Here? When I have all these wonderful stones to play with? Yes. Who am I to argue? So I asked if crystals were required? No, Incense? Yes, 3 sticks…fortunately there was no wind at all and I was able to light them without even looking for cover.
Nothing seemed to be required for preparation other than to stand before this non-descript marker. I did so for some moments, but did not feel any different. I checked as to whether I had done the pre-requisits and the answer was yes.
As I stepped away a thought occured to me, was the walking in and around the stones part of my initiation? Yes…Ah…
I then went around the stones taking in there awesome size and feel as well as there beauty in the abundant snow. Then mindful of time I was off for Stonehenge.
I programmed the Miss Sat Nav for West Amesbury and was off. It started out fairly well and the roads had been gritted and then Lady Sat Nav took me down a country lane and I was slowed to around 20mph. A few miles later she had me going down even more untreated roads and I was down to a meager 10mph and then almost innevitably it happened…
I was going one way and two cars were coming the other, the road was barely passable and I tapped the break and went into a gentle, dare I say graceful slide. Which ended in me facing the fields perpendicular to the road. Lovely.
A few revs of the tires made me realise that that wasn’t going to work. Fortunately the other two car drivers assisted and I was off on way, if a little more cautious.
By the Sat Nav it should have taken me 40 minutes to Stonehenge, however it was looking more like 90 minutes. So I had time to ponder things. The slide for example…of course on any other day I wouldnt have given it another thought, but on pilgrimages, as we have noticed so many times, the smallest thing should be pondered…so I did, ponder I mean. But alas the meaning, if any, escaped me and finally I was on a clear road.
As I drove along I felt a tug off to my left and looked up just to flash by a brown sign…Woodhenge. Gwas and I had been there the last time we went to Stonehenge and felt its strong energies. This time though Tempus was well and truly fugiting and I needed to be places.
The A303 is a blessed road as it gives a wonderful view of Stonehenge. From a distance the circle looks like play toys stacked up and you have to get real close to appreciate there magnitude.
Alas, although there were about a dozen cars parked up on the road outside the heritage centre. Due to the weather the staff hadn’t turned up and…Stonehenge was closed!
Closed! I couldn’t believe it. I went over to one of the guards and she told me that they were indeed closed and thus “No Entry!”
I was gutted and paced along the road pondering this state of affairs. Other travellers were equally frustrated at this prohibition and were venting their displeasure.
Guerrilla dowsing were two words that sprang to mind and I eyed the fields surrounding the henge. It was about an hour to sunset, but the white snow would make me quite visible, unless I came from completely the other side and tried to keep the Henge between me and any garda, all the whilst watching for patrolling ones.
What would be the penalty of breaking into a heritage site? Hmmm I walked about 4 miles around the fields that surrounded the henge and considered the options…I reckoned that if I was lucky I could probably get close enough to find a suitable place to do my Energy Work. I had light blue clothing on and so that would provide some camouflage.
As I planned this entree, another “thought” occurred to me…what about Woodhenge? Would the sister site be suitable for my quest? I asked the rods, Yes. Are you sure? Yes, Would it be as good as Stonehenge?No, but suitable.
Taking a last rueful glance at the Henge I was off for Woodhenge. As I made my way back along the road I had just driven down I wondered if the mishap earlier and the “pull” of Woodhenge were connected, perhaps that was what I was being told?
Evidenced by the snow, the half-mile side road up to Woodhenge was almost virgin in its snow covering. I was the second car in the park and the other couple were already heading towards theirs.
So, it was me and Woodhenge, perfect.
And in the next post we will see what Magic occurred at this wonderful site
Kal Malik Edge Wizard
In an attempt to appear well-read and topical I have gathereed together a series of news articles that have garnered my interest this month. They are on a wide range of topics, some environmental, some energy-related and some beyond those. Here are some stories that roused my interest this month:-
1. Wi-Fi is killing trees
Comment: Nothing riles me more than stories about the abuse of trees. This was bound to “push my buttons”. I think that our headlong leap into new technologies has always happened without proper consideration of the consequences – that in itself is one of the consequences of our Aquarian quest for The New. However, once we have identified a potential issue like this, surely we should be considering the wider effects on us too? Some dowsers have been raising this issue for a while in the health forums, but of course no-one takes dowsers seriously.
Here are some useful links on this topic:-
- Glastonbury’s reaction to being bombarded by wifi signals: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/3966373/Alternative-health-capital-turns-its-negative-energy-on-pioneering-wi-fi-system.html
- The GeoPathFinder site’s explanation of the elements involved in this discussion: http://www.geopathfinder.com/9801
2. We CAN predict the future, study shows
Comment: Some of us have known this for a long time. Those of us who have had experiences of time distortion already know that time is a mutable and flexible concept. This study is once again demonstrating that we have the everyday ability to warp time in order to sneak a peek at the near future. Those who communicate with entities who are outside of our normal scale of time will also know that time is an elastic concept which only becomes solified under common concensus. Here, at last, is some definitive scientific proof that will get swept far far underneath the carpet, and then trampled down for good measure. You heard it here, folks.
3. Giant Energy Structure at the centre of our Galaxy
Comment: Is this a recognition of the emerging energy that will shape our consciousness in the next few years? Is it the light that will signify a transition into a new Age of Aquarius as it reaches us? Keep your antennae twitching, sensitive folk, this could be interesting!
4. Ball-bearing theory of Stonehenge creation
Comment: Balls being the operative word here. The article is pure speculation, but it’s a step up from the rolling logs theory. However, it only take a few seconds thought to imagine that it would have been one hell of a job for them to contain the spherical objects they used to prevent them from rolling awa out of the sides as the rocks were moved up and down slopes.
5. Druids alive and kicking and promoting Tory values on Anglesey
Comment: If he was truly a druid he’s be independent, not allied to any party. Cheeky beggar! Using the Druids’ good name for his own personal benefit. Grrr!
The Hedge Druid blog has reached 300 posts! Thanks to those of you who are reading our posts regularly, everyone who has contributed to the comments section, and to casual visitors who may just happen on by. We hope you are enjoying the journey along The Path. Our experiences seem to resonate with many of you.
Since late 2008 we have delivered three hundred almost-believable, sometimes vaguely interesting pieces of information to you all. For Kal and I the blog began as a means of recording our experiences whilst out dowsing, and for me particularly it was a means to record the cross-over that I was experiencing with my newly-emerging interest in druidry. Since then we have developed spiritually and the metaphorical goal-posts have shifted somewhat.
It has been to my personal delight that you have followed our progress in increasing numbers. Good on you, but shouldn’t you be out in a field kissing a flower or something? Only kidding. It’s great to have you here, and we hope that our exploits inspire you to try some of the unusual things we get up to for yourself. You’ll notice we often leave the detail for you to work out for yourself? That’s deliberate.
Two years after we started blogging we have hit a major milestone. I feel like we readers of this blog are a small band of Spartans facing the hordes of rationalist unbelievers in their many guises and poking them sternly in the eye with experiential evidence. Of course, we’re all mad. We need to acknowledge that, If anyone asks, you don’t believe a word of this, right?
Over that time we have indeed covered many esoteric and “flaky” subjects: crop circles, crystals, healing with energy, earth energy lines, coincidences, elemental spirits, ghosts, power centres…and many more that I can’t bring to mind but which make me muse and ponder. We aim to test them all in time.
Over that few years we’ve been spending less time dowsing and more time on energy work/magick. Dowsing has currently (and unfairly) been relegated to an aide to our other work. In the near future we’re going to go back to re-investigating the dowsing principles because we think there’s more to learn from that. Expect some updates to the Sacred Sites page with its map of energies. Expect some new ideas to emerge from our findings.
Here is just a flavour of some of the topics we will be covering soons:-
- Lammas – what it means to me and what I will be doing
- Crop circles – our ideas about where they come from and who’s making them, and how they are made, and what their importance might be
- Stone circles – are they schools for passing on mystical information?
- The newly-discovered wood henge near Stonehenge – our first dowse of it
- The power of numbers : five, seven and eleven
Hope you’ll stay with us for the next three hundred. Charge!!!!!!
