The Rainbow Serpent.

After a trip to Avebury during the summer, I finally understood the Rainbow Serpent. I had been asking for a long time about what it really represented and I finally got my answer. I had an idea of what it ‘might’ be but never fully understood it. 

We hadn’t been to Avebury for a few years, spending so much time travelling and doing earth-work in Egypt, so it was nice to return to the circle to see how the energies were working now. Oddly, as we walked around the circle, we felt nothing, until we came to the large portal stones, which had a blue-energetic wall connecting the two. We walked through them. We had come into the circle from the Barn-side and had not entered through the ‘portal’, which could be why we had not been picking anything up. After we went through it, our ‘energy-field’ was more sensitive to the energies present at the site and we were able to communicate with the energies there.

After passing through the portal, which felt like a link to Mexico and the Maya, (this could be the result of  the many group visits to Avebury by a woman named Aluna Joy, who does many workshops in the UK now. She works with the Maya energies.) we decided to walk up the Avenue. As we walked I tuned into the energy being held by the stones lining the avenue. I could see lines of different colours and widths moving towards the main circle from the Sanctuary and from the Sanctuary to the main circle, like stripes.

There were three colours, green, red and blue. Each of these colours fulfils a different function: red is the Earth energy that fills the land with vitality; green is the colour of vegetation, it brings fertility to the soil, and blue is the colour of the water energy. Water has always played an important role in these Circle groups.

On previous work at the Sanctuary, which is at the end of the avenue, I had seen a serpent’s head emerge where the avenue opened up into the Sanctuary, so I was already aware of the serpent connection, but now I understood what it meant!

Each colour is a wave-band, feeding the land and the atmosphere with a particular frequency of vitality. Everything is balanced and held by the stones, which act like acupuncture needles, holding and keeping the energies in balance. The stones at Avebury and the avenue alternate male and female. The lozenge-shaped ones are female, and the tall pointed ones are male. On the avenue too, they face each other on opposite sides of the avenue.

Everything about Avebury is Balance, balancing the forces of nature in all of its aspects, in that part of England. Avebury is not isolated either. It too fulfils a function in the larger grid of energies. Everything is connected.

We didn’t walk in the other direction this time, to the Adam and Eve stones,  but we will do it the next time.

So the Rainbow serpent is not made up of all colours of the rainbow necessarily, but each ‘serpent’ has its own colour bands, depending on where it is located in the world and what is required at each place on the network.

The Stones at Avebury keep the serpent contained but the Rainbow Serpent can move above and below land. In ‘containing’ it the stones are making sure that the colour bands are being guided to where they have the best effect in the landscape, much like an electronic circuit.

I will have to re-visit some of the other stone avenues to see if this applies to them too.  Merrivale springs to mind…

Workshop in Tintagel, England.

This was a workshop which Cheryl Brennan and I did a few years ago, in Tintagel. It was the first one we did together and was wonderful.

We had a terrific weekend, with glorious weather, and although we had a structure for the entire weekend, we ended up adding things that we had not expected to do.Our intention was to initiate people into becoming Guardians, Keepers of the Grail.  As a result of the initiations they would then ‘become One’ with the Earth.  They each worked on a part of the site with which they resonated. The needed energy-work, at a particular place, exactly matched an issue which needed healing in the person doing the work. In healing the site they were healing themselves and in so doing, healing that facet of human consciousness.

clip_image002We discovered, that our overall work was to anchor the female Goddess energies at certain points, points which had become predominantly masculine and therefore missing its balance. Some places were easy, once we figured out what needed to be done, and other points felt incredibly difficult. The energy needed to anchor a female consciousness, in places which have been, and continue to be, used as male strongholds, was a challenge. Some of these sites brought up a lot of anger for some, as it was apparent what the power imbalance had created. But now we were in a position to, at least, plant the seeds of balance for the future.

Its not difficult to see how this works. All you have to do is look at how long it has taken women to gain some semblance of power in a patriarchal world. Men believe they have to behave in a certain way and, as a result, women are forced to behave in another way. Anchoring the female energies will bring a slow awareness of the nurturing and powerful aspects of Woman into the lives of both men and women, with the eventual hope of peace. The wounded female needs healing as does the wounded male.

We had intended to begin the weekend at King Arthur’s Halls but, as we had a day to ‘potter’ we went to the Rocky Valley to check out the labyrinth. We spent some time beside the river and then did some unexpected ‘anchoring’ beside the labyrinth, carved into the walls! Just beyond both Labyrinths was a small room, which once formed part of a building, possibly the small house of the miller. Just standing there was energising. We discovered, by following the clues, that there was no Maiden/Spring energy here, just Mother/Summer and Crone/Winter. As we were all women on a healing path this was significant for our personal healing. The maiden represents that part of ourselves that yearns to live spontaneously. She is full of potential, full of life-force, moving towards the birthing. Bringing in this energy here meant uniting with this part of ourselves so that we could become more who

We anchored a white flame here, which is a Brigid Flame. Eartha held the ability to channel the female solar energy so she anchored it here. She was amazing! She so represented that energy, completely uninhibited and spontaneous. It was a powerful moment and we felt very energised by it. We manifested the physical flame by lighting a candle and leaving it there. The creative, feminine solar energy was now blended with the white flame of Brigit. An unexpected piece of work but amazing.clip_image003

The following morning we began the day by visiting Arthur’s Halls. The Merlin (male) line flows through this building and it contains a golden serpent energy. We did a meditation and anchored  three  different flames of the Divine Feminine consciousness, which are, Magenta, Yellow and Blue. It was very difficult to anchor the energies here because, as Anne, one of the participants, pointed out, it is used mainly by men. It is used regularly by the local Freemasons who own the building. The whole point of anchoring these energies at a male site and on a male energy line is so that the change in consciousness around the feminine can be sown within the masculine consciousness. It softens the masculine energy and brings it back into balance.

Later in the afternoon we went to St. Materiana’s church to do Magdalene Flame attunements, given to me originally by Jhadten Jewall, and to re-anchor the energy there. We didn’t know it, but they were preparing for a wedding there that day and we were just in time. They had decorated the church with white and gold, the colours we had previously worked with in the Rocky Valley! Cheryl and I carried out the attunements and we all then went down for the initiations in Tintagel Castle. The female energy line, runs beneath St. Materiana’s church, so we were ensuring that it was maintained energetically.

clip_image004On our way down to the castle Eartha suddenly pointed out the dragon’s head, right where we were going to do the initiations. His head faces out to sea. All the times we had come here and we had never noticed! We wondered where the tail ended up? I discovered a couple of weeks later that according to Paul Broadhurst the tail is at St. Nectan’s waterfall, which was where we were finishing the work the following  day!

We carried out the initiations at the Solar Portal, which is a point on the highest part of the castle and looks out on the setting sun, and each person received their ‘mantle’. The mantle is a layer of colour vibration placed in the energy-field of the person. We also created a new essence there. As we were leaving the hall we had a nice piece of confirmation. The tour guide was explaining the uses for each room when the castle was in power, and where we did the initiations was where they kept their cloaks!

When we had finished we pottered off to explore. Anne and I ended up in Merlin’s cave and I did a personal activation with her. The vortex lay just inside the entrance and, after we had gone through to the other side of the cave, we came back and Anne ‘freed up’ the trapped creative energy here. She and the vortex were one which meant that in healing the energies there, she was equally healing her own matching issues. A couple of years later, Chris Bishop also had an initiation here and met the Dragon of Tintagel.

The following day we began at Bossiney Mound, which lies on a cross-over of the male and female energy lines. There is a local story that on Midsummer’s eve a golden, round table rises up from beneath the mound and then goes underground again. clip_image005Cheryl led the meditation and we anchored layers of energy here, all designed to help heal the world and change the consciousness of those receptive to the energies of Divine Balance. When we were finished we went to St. Nectan’s waterfall. Jaynie needed to do work here so we spent some time doing that. This was her initiation, on the inner levels, into working with Divine Balance and the unification of the forces of Nature with Humanity. Doing this meant that she could work more closely with site guardians and the Elder Race. As part of this she then was to lead the next meditation, which was terrific and very powerful. Eartha, once again, picked up the discordant energies of the site, which Jaynie was able to ‘upgrade’. We also placed the intention for the site keepers to maintain the cleanliness of the place, which they weren’t doing! Jaynie’s work also involved creating a ‘holding’ structure for the energies to flow through, as they were not being ‘contained’.

To finish the day we all created a strong heart connection and commitment, to the healing of ourselves and the earth, through the site.

DSCN0266I’ve been back in Winchester for a week and I still feel overwhelmed! As I drove to the woods, the only place that I feel secure in, I was aware of myself being in a glass bubble. I could see outside the glass, but I could not feel anything. I felt completely disconnected from everything.

I drove to the first place where I ever connected to earth energies, and which seems to be my entrance-point to the English energy-grid. Every-time I spend time away, it seems to be this tree wisdomplace I start off with again.

This was the only place I didn’t feel ‘bubble-wrapped’ in, so that was really good. I stood on the round barrow, where the Dryad  that gave me the tree wisdom symbol grows, and tuned in, but felt nothing but a slight soft energy in my legs. I wandered down a path I have never seen before and ended up in a wide open space, a lovely grassy plain. It felt wonderful; like ‘home’. I wandered down the path a bit and then felt the need to stop. As I stood still I felt like I was facing the wrong direction, so I shifted, and then all of the energy I had brought from Egypt began to flow into the earth. What a relief that was. I stood until my belly felt completely empty and then I walked back up the hill, enjoying being under the green, leafy branches once again.DSCN0269

As I came closer to the round barrow again, I felt my heart energy move out of my body. It looked, and felt, like my heart was a metre out in front of me. I could feel the stretch of it. I didn’t initially know why it was doing that, but I followed it as it pulled me forward, and then I found myself standing just in front of a young Beech tree that was growing at the base of the Barrow. My heart energy disappeared into the tree, even while it was still connected to me by a cord of energy. I stood waiting to see what would happen next. After a few minutes I felt my umbilical cord activate and it too moved into the tree, at the same level, then it changed direction and moved up the trunk to connect to my heart! Once it had connected, I could release it. It seemed strange to anchor myself in a tree, but it was obviously what I needed. I’ll have to wait and see why it was necessary.

I continued on up to stand on the barrow, but, again I was facing the wrong direction, so I turned a faced the same direction as earlier. That was where I needed to go next. I wondered if it was the Roman Site I used to spend a lot of time in. The mosaic from the site is in Winchester Museum.

DSCN0272The following day I went back up to Farleigh Mount and took the scenic route up to the villa site. It was very pretty! I had really missed all of the trees while I had been in Luxor, and am going to make the best of them while I am here! When I got to the site I sat and breathed, but did not feel the need to do anything. But then I heard what sounded like bird cries. I thought it was an owl, or a buzzard and it sounded like it was in distress. It turned out to be a faun, which had wandered away from its mother and was calling for her. It had gotten a little lost in the lost in the undergrowth. But I knew that it mother was around calling for it, so I sat back down and waited. She came and took her baby and all was well.

This little lesson, from Mother Nature, is one I have been learning in Egypt. “Mother knows best, so stop rescuing”! Seems I needed to be reminded of that here.

Read more Earthwork Journals.

DSCN1122These two posts are just a sample of the earthwork I have been doing over the years. If you would like to read more then click here.

Reading the journals might help you to identify the work you are doing and make you feel a little less crazy! Hopefully, you can learn a few things too. And do feel free to share your own earth-working experiences too. I love to hear how others are doing their healing work with the planet.

Enjoy.

 

Energywork April 2015. Luxor/Naqada

 

upper_egypt_cult_centersWell, it has been an energetic couple of weeks. Omar (Husband) had to go to Naqada last week to sort out his father’s pension. Naqada is a town, a half an hour’s drive away from us here on the West Bank. I don’t normally go but this time I felt an overwhelming urge, nay excitement, at the thought of accompanying them! I recognised the feeling. It is what I used to get when I lived in the UK and Ireland, when energy-work needed to be done. Omar’s brother had hired our neighbour’s service taxi, so we bundled an elderly father into the back seat and off we went, Omar, Amer, (brother) dad and myself, and the crazy driver!

It was so nice to get out into the green again. As we drove along I felt the energy of the fields and the Nile and I opened myself up to them. I felt open and energised and connected. I heard myself ‘calling’ elementals to come and join me in my work as we drove. It felt wonderful. I watched the small farms as we passed, mudbrick houses, buffalo and cows tethered beside the canals, women sitting outside their homes. Then, of course, the huge electricity pylons, stretching out through the fields, their long deadly tendrils filling the skies above us. The old life and the new. 

I knew when we were closer to Naqada because I could feel the energy shifting. We drove through dusty main streets, no tarmac here, until we came to the Government building. We parked opposite, trying to leave room for other vehicles, donkey carts and toctocs, (3-wheelers). I stayed in the taxi while Omar went to do the business and while I sat there, I felt my energy move up into the sky. I could see a massive dark vortex, swirling blacks, and greys and whites, above the city. It was the collective beliefs of Naqada. It didn’t look so good! I ‘saw’ my hands pulling down a large golden cord, which I attached to the centre of my being, the Mother centre in my belly. WLA_brooklynmuseum_Terracotta_female_figure

I felt a feminine energy descend into me as I sat still in the car, and when she was fully anchored in my energy-field, her dress, a grey-blue satin-like material, spread out wide.  I saw large pins anchor the hem of the dress to the ground in a large circle. She moved up so that the fabric became taut and then it began to flow out around her. It began to move, like water, into the streets, filling up every nook and cranny of the city. Then she looked up at the great swirling cloud above her and she raised her arms up high and gathered the vortex in her hands, rolling all of those energies into a ball. I waited to see what she was going to do with the ball, until I saw her ingest it. As she swallowed it, it moved into her mother centre, in her belly. After a few moments, she raised her arms again and this time she brought with them the beautiful energies of growth, beauty and greenness; of life and the love of life. It felt wonderful, loving and clean. The complete opposite to how it is today, a dirty, dusty, rubbish-strewn environment. Naqada is a predominantly Christian city and quite poor. Out in the desert they found evidence of a people who had migrated from the deserts, during the Neolithic period, when the temperatures changed and their once fertile oases became barren sand dunes. These people spread out, even to where we live here, on the West Bank in Luxor. Right outside our home, and underneath parts of it, lie the 6,000 year old cemeteries of the Naqada peoples. They were a ‘Goddess-centered’ people and were the beginning of all the history here in this part of Egypt. naqadah

Driving back from Naqada we took the desert road, as the driver wanted to speed up a little. Not a reassuring thought as he is an abysmal driver! About 5 km outside of Qurna, Luxor, I brought down the energy of a huge white disc. It spread itself over the city of Luxor, east and west. In the centre of this disc a large column/tube was connected, like the hose on a fire hydrant, which stretched up into the sky. It was as if it was just being set up for energies to flood in at some point.

 A couple of days later I was listening to music. I had done a few Gaia Method attunements with some lovely women from Ireland and in the UK, and my energies were nicely connected. Music always acts as the trigger for energy-work, and the work I do while listening to music is more like a dance, dancing the energy of nature. This dance was quite different to any I have ever experienced before. I found myself raising fire, which was huge and cleansing. Then I felt like the destructive Goddess, her energy moving fiercely around me, wild and free, like a massive thunderstorm. This went on for a few minutes, the energy whipping up the waters of the Nile so that they no longer knew in which direction they flowed, north or south. Then suddenly I felt the Goddess energy stop and she made everything quiet and soft again, like an orchestra playing a soft, soothing melody after a long crescendo.

It seemed to be such a huge energy, that I was a little afraid of what it might mean. It felt chaotic and wild yet I experienced the dancing of it as something necessary and life-changing. It didn’t matter to her, how much it effected anyone, so long as everything was re-balanced once again. That’s just nature’s way. But it is going to be very interesting around here when this does happen. I sure hope we’re prepared.  I have been receiving a lot of guidance about stocking up for the winter, and the weather patterns changing, so things are going to get interesting. Thank god we planted a lot of wheat this year!!

Stanton Drew.

This morning, as I was waking up, my guides told me to post the journal entry for a trip I made with Kathryn Jackson to Stanton Drew stone circles. We were studying an Archaeology degree in Winchester together at the time and I was still learning about Earth work. Kathryn too had been attuned to Reiki, by me, and so we were colleagues learning together. Much later, when I was ‘given’ the Gaia Method I attuned her to the first level. She had already been attuned to Reiki Master level by then and was well on her way in her healing journey. In a way we learned a lot about how to combine our healing with the knowledge of how our ancestors worked energetically within the landscape. We travelled quite a lot to different sites back then. This is the record of that day.

clip_image002 January 2005. Today Kat and I went to Stanton Drew stone circles (Grid. Ref. ST603 630)

It was wet and windy, not Kats favourite weather! The Great circle was smaller than I expected and I didn’t detect any energy activity. I did, however, pick up the fear and superstitions that the people of the Middle Ages felt about the site. They really were scared of them and saw them as places of the devil where horrible things happened to people. They imagined that the builders sacrificed animals and people and stuck their heads on poles to rot. They built up so many negative beliefs about the place that the energy remains there. Interestingly we did find a rabbit’s head which had been deliberately placed on one of the stones!! Bit weird!! Then I remembered the Lemurian’s instructions to place a protective light frequency around me so that I would only pick up the energies that I needed to work with. When I did that I no longer picked up those energies. I’ll remember that next time!

I had an impulse to place all my Lemurian crystals in the rain-water which had pooled on top of one of the flat, square stones in the North-East. I wasn’t quite sure why I was doing it but it became clearer later.

The stone was markedly different to the others in that it was not an upright. We thought initially that it had just fallen over but we realised that it was supposed to be flat. Interestingly I had no desire to walk to the centre of the circle, as I would normally, but felt the need to walk around the edge to the stone, immediately opposite the first stone we had come to on entering the field. When we had reached that stone I  felt an impulse to walk into the centre of the North-East circle. As I did I began to feel the familiar energy-rush feeling I usually get at an active site. It always leaves me feeling breathless! While Kat wandered around the stones I stood in the centre and tuned in. I wanted to lift my arms up to the sky so I ‘saw’ myself doing that. I was aware of the light moving around the stones in a clockwise fashion after having started at the square, flat stone that lay in the north east. As the ring of blue light energy travelled around the stone circle it stopped at the square one and created a ‘ring’ effect, like a ring with a gemstone we would put on our finger. It seemed as though the square stone somehow ‘held’ the charge of Solar energy which the Priestess in the centre had channelled into the circle.

clip_image002[11]

Stanton Drew Energy-lines now.

As I continued to channel the energy into the circle I ‘saw’ a sword of fire being plunged into the ground. I’d never seen this before. Usually, in order to clear a blocked energy line, I would drive a sword into the point of blockage but it never had fire around it. (The sword is just an image I see in my imagination that acts like an etheric acupuncture needle, unblocking the flow of energy through the earth’s meridians). I wasn’t quite sure what this meant but, again, it became clearer later on. When this process felt complete I wanted to walk down the avenue of stones so that’s what we did.

The next step was to visit the South-West circle. We had to cross another field which was thick with mud and cow pats! Sheep and their early lambs were playing on the stones of the smaller circle but they moved away as we entered the circle. I expected this circle to be ‘quiet’ as the previous one was active but to my surprise it too was active. I stood in the middle and tuned in. As I became more aware of the energy, I felt my own energy wanting to move deep into the Earth. Then I saw a wheel with me in the centre. Another one appeared under it and they began to rotate in opposite directions. I heard ‘step off the wheel’ but didn’t know what this meant! A few minutes passed and I wasn’t sure if I was finished or not. Then I saw myself as a priestess again but this time I held a large serpent in my hands. It was extremely long and moving in a winding movement. I placed it deep in the Earth with its head facing towards the North-East circle, but not entering it. It bypassed it.

Then another line, obviously still present, was activated. This line ran under St. Mary’s church, through the centre of the circle and out the other side. I waited for this to properly anchor. I saw the priestess holding a lantern and she began to ‘walk the light’ down the line of the serpent towards the North-East circle. I had the idea that this is what the original avenue of stones marked out yet she had created a new line. Both avenues now joined this new line. Had there been a line there before and it had become blocked at another location and needed to be recreated?

Then I ‘saw’ the peace symbol and was told to anchor this quality into the circle. I still felt as though I was deep in the Earth, so I felt the energy of peace lay itself over and into the circle like a disc of energy. This then moved deeply into the Earth. I waited until I could no longer feel the energy and I knew we were finished.

This had been an interesting site. Although it had three circles it wasn’t a Triple Goddess Site. It appeared as though one circle belonged to the fire element and one belonged to the Earth element. I had read some research by Gwen Broughton and the three stone circles that existed in Winchester during the Neolithic. This information had been channelled by an Australian woman and she said that there had been a large stone circle where the cathedral now stood. Two satellite circles, one a ‘water’ circle and the other a ‘fire’ circle lay under what is now the Brooks centre. Three Sarsen stones from the smaller circles now lie in the Abbey gardens. I am sceptical until I experience evidence of channelled information (even my own!) so I went and sat on the stones and tuned into them. I was ‘told’ that the stone I was sitting on was a ‘Venus’ stone and that it was used to tune into the qualities of Venus! I saw a stone circle and a Druid/priest instructing his/her students. Each student sat at a stone in order to experience and know the energies of a particular planet. Interesting, but again I needed proof. I found it. I read it on the internet but cannot find it now. It stated that druids would teach their students about planets by getting them to tune into stones that were infused with that particular energy!

Now I had also experienced ‘elemental circles’ so I knew the Australian woman was possibly correct. I will have to visit some more stone circles to see if this is a common occurrence.

I have subsequently, since writing that, done much more work with these etheric energies of Winchester’s stone circles and with the three stones which still remain. I will gradually post these when I have a hundred years worth of time!!!
