A dowsing trip to ANCIENT HILLTOP CARN BREA
Arriving on the top of Carn Brea, after a bumpy ride up the small track, we were presented with far reaching views all around and a lovely catching up with old friends of the dowsing kind, realising, after moving up a county last year, how much I miss the wonderful outings and talks that Trencrom Dowsers provides. As always, the organisers John & Jill had researched the area’s history and features and prepared hand outs which provided the happy dowsers with suggestions about locations to dowse for. Whilst the group dispersed into all directions of this magnificent ancient hilltop, I chose to take in the surroundings first, clambering down a set of huge boulders at the base of the medieval castle. Then turned around and marvelled at the view of the castle rising up, filling the skyline. Part of its foundation was built onto a rocky outcrop. Remembering something John said earlier (“I bet this was built way before building regulations!”), I smiled silently. Yes, it was most definitely an impressive piece of rogue castle building. Very photogenic though!
Re-setting the energy to the original soul blueprint
Oh my joyous heart! I need to share some excitement; last Friday, my newest crystal family member arrived! A Brandberg Amethyst. I had never before heard of it but came across the knowledge of its existence during the research this week into the metaphysical properties of the crystal grid that I made for the September Full Moon. There were a few lines on the Brandberg Amethyst in the more general amethyst description but even from those few lines, I immediately felt drawn to it and started a search on the internet to source one. Discovering the exorbitant prices for a flawless one (figures in the hundreds!), I decided to go with a smaller, less perfect, twin peak, Brandberg Amethyst crystal that I felt drawn to. It truly was an act of just knowing this one would be right and boy, it was!
The dowsing results can be found at the bottom of the introduction, before the elaborate description of the Brandburg Amethyst.
The effects on the Athena earth energy line
I felt compelled to have a small, quiet, solar eclipse ceremony with a new batch of pointed clear crystals that I had put on the earth during the past two nights preceding the eclipse, in order to let the summer rain cleanse them from old energies and to have them soak up the earth’s vibration just as they are at this point of our time on this planet. When collecting the crystals from the earth today, slowly, one by one, I noticed how shiny they were as opposed to the dull glow when they arrived in the post. Surely the cycle of nights and days on the bare earth had done them good. I smiled at the bunch of crystals in my left hand and took them to the garden table adjacent to the wooden chalet. A young girl had left a branch of crab apples on the garden path a couple of days ago when she was visiting, and I took stumbling across these crab apples as a sign to work with them too in the eclipse ceremony. Therefor, I made a circle of quartz crystals surrounding the crab apples with the intent for the crab apples, in its function as a remedy of the 38 Bach Flower Essences that I so love to work with, to empower the cleansing effect of the eclipse, with the underlying thougth that the crab apples' vibrational remedy could be ideal to support the ‘cleansing’ of the slate of history on earth so far and allow for a new, kinder, energy to emerge in the world. The crystals were given the suggestion to help spread the cleansed energy outwards; to bring the undiluted light of the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine into this world. During the darkest minutes of the eclipse, I held my hand over the fruits and the crystals and imbued them with that intent: cleansing and bringing pure light into the world. Afterwards, while walking back to the chalet, I thought it would be good to do some dowsing to see how the solar eclipse energies affect the Athena earth energy line that runs next to the bed! (which is not always easy as an energy sensitive but I manage well.)
