It’s funny how, when things are "right”, they fall into place. I was really undecided as to what to do for the Summer Solstice this year but once I heard that Judy Hall was free to play and she suggested we go to Knowlton together it immediately felt right. Mind you, she did add huge temptation by telling me that she had not one, but two new crystals to play with!! One of these, a form of golden Quartz which Judy has now named Celtic Golden Healer Quartz, had already made it clear to her that it wanted to play a role in world-wise healing. So the intention was to use it in whatever we were setting up for the Solstice.
This year the Solstice, in the UK was at 17:37. Amusingly, Judy has been having trouble with her computer program that prints her astrology charts and keeps telling me it refuses to recognise BST, so we had fun comparing charts and times and decided we would go to Knowlton around midday, pop back for some lunch, then do some work with the Ancestralite before going back in time for the Solstice. We planned to set out a large Celtic Golden Healer Quartz spiral to activate the world-wise healing the Quartz had requested.
Horace, Judy's Smoky Quartz Earth healer skull was at the head of proceedings. Described the day before by Judy as being grumpy, it was amazing to watch how his energy lightened and changed dramatically.
A combination of the land and leyline energies, the Sun and the crystals seemed to wake him up. Looking into the top of his head previously it was quite dark, in keeping with his Smoky Quartz. We could almost physically see him lightening and by the time we left he had the most stunningly beautiful golden light and rainbows sparkling inside the top of head, as well as around his left eye.
When it felt that things were complete, we went back for some lunch after which Judy had an investigatory and healing grid laid in a pentagram of Ancestralite. Powerful stuff!
When we returned to Knowlton later in the afternoon, heavily laden with crystals, there were quite a few people around, so we followed the outside of the circle to the left and found a quiet spot where I laid out my astrological cloth. The huge and quite heavy centre piece of Calcite (Judy thought it was too heavy to carry, a challenge I couldn’t resist!) was our starting place, and Judy then handed me the other pieces which I laid in a spiral coming out from the centre. The chart for the Solstice went towards the left corner with a piece of Ancestralite in the centre and one at each corner. Judy’s two skulls, Horace and Gawain and my own Clear Quartz skull (as yet unnamed), took their view points from the corners, together with another piece of Celtic Golden Healer Quartz.
Judy and I quietly worked and journeyed with the healing grid. Personally, I felt the spiral descending below the surface of the Earth, deep into the centre, connecting with crystals there and radiating the healing energy back up to the entire surface.
This is a pivotal moment in the Earth’s tilting cycle. A standstill for the sun before it slowly moves back to its midwinter rising point. It’s a moment of introspection. Time to look to the past. To leave there what needs to be moved on from. But bringing forward the gifts and learning.....
Several moments of introspection in fact, not just personal but for the planet and all living creatures on it. Later that day we both, individually, had things brought to our attention that were unhealed from the past and needed to be cleared for us to move forward. The description of “bringing forward the gifts and learning” echoes part of how Ancestralite works after clearing the Ancestral line and the Celtic Golden Healer Quartz definitely participated in healing for us both as well as the Earth.
I can’t wait to find out where these pieces of Celtic Golden Healer Quartz end up and wonder whether it will be possible to trace and record them on a map, to draw up a giant grid to see what, if any, pattern they form. Or if they go to areas that need particular healing. I am also very happy to be part of that as a very special piece has come back to Devon with me, one that I spotted that not only had the Golden quartz on the top but also a Preseli-type base. It reminds me of an iceberg, being much bigger at the bottom. Also, a small piece of the very large and heavy centre piece broke off into my hand when I gently lifted it out of the grid, a thank you maybe? So that is with me also. It will be interesting to see where it takes me when we journey together!
