Why were they were built and what they were used for?
One misty morning as I travelled on the train from London to Devon, I closed my eyes and “tuned-in.” The beautiful landscape of rich green hedgerows and trees unravelled before me into velvet dusk. I felt myself slipping into another realm.
View from the slopes of Glastonbury Tor, England.
In the soft darkness I hear a great bell sounding deep within the Earth. I feel the resonance rippling to the surface, creating ridges and hollows in the landscape of Avalon. It chimes every blade of grass, veined petal and tree into existence and I hear the summons of an ancient voice echo in my mind.
Far ahead, rising from the land like silent sentinels, the Standing Stones appear.
Their moss covered fingers point to the sky and I am transfixed to see they are giant magnets. They weave strands of shimmering light into a mandala that disappears beneath their granite feet as they transform energy from the stars into the earth . The invisible gateways through which we may pass unseen have been here since the beginning of time. Our ancestors understood their purpose and how to activate the keys that lie within each circle and stone. Slowly we reclaim our memory and connection with the cosmos. The stones are granite acupuncture needles in earth’s surface of soil and turf, watching the landscape change over thousands of years and holding the delicate balance of life. The stones are cyphers of celestial light, channelling cosmic energy through their crystal chambers.
Stand close enough and you will feel it too, like a shiver on a cold night.
Energy radiates from each stone wrapping tendrils of light around my body, drawing me to the centre of the circle. A full moon is rising in line with the tip of the heel-stone, her diamond light spiralling into a halo of moonbeams as if from a distant mirror ball. A gentle humming begins and like tuning forks resonating to the same frequency, each stone vibrates to a particular note, spinning a web of sonic sound into a night sky twinkling with stars.
The hypnotic lullaby of harmony and light draws me back home like a moth to a flame.
I see a vision of the Goddess living in the landscape and mirrored in the sky. Patchwork fields spread like a cloak of green velvet across Her shoulders, rising and falling with the breath of Spirit as She lies resplendent with stars in her hair. She is a galactic goddess hidden under our feet and if we go barefoot on her skin, we ground ourselves into her body lush and green. She sighs like the wind and flows in the streams. I hear Her soft voice calling to me above the rasping steel tracks.
I know I am home and held in the arms of the Great Mother and the real journey has just begun.
