I am back from getting Stoned. Stone circles, that is, both in Stonehenge and a new site, Callanish in Scotland.
Link to aerial shot of Callanish is below – its the second largest stone circle in England, 400 feet long. Only the stone of Stoneheng are larger.
But a very different feeling, as it is arranged like a celtic cross – a circle at the center of the cross. But with two rows of stones to the north, like a woman with her legs spread, to capture the rebirthing planetary chi coming in from the north pole.
What is the purpose of the stone technology? I think a combination of “geomantic /earth acupuncture” and “alignment to sun-moon cycles of time”, the very theme of the Greater Kan & Li retreat that preceded my visit to Scotland. A very powerful retreat, prepared me to go deep inside Callanish.
What is inside a bunch of old stones, standing cold on a barren hill on a remote island in northern Scotland?
It focuses a beautiful heart energy. That was my experience – much more heart centered than Stonehenge, although our ceremony there this time was enveloped in a much softer energy than in previous year’s ceremonies.
But Callanish is holding some deep heart space, the meeting of the four sacred directions in the central fifth circle.
check out the aerial photo. I have lots of them taken on the ground, will get around to posting them eventually.
And I thnk it all relates to great discussion below between alexander and nnoonth. A remnant from a past civiliztion – 5000 years ago – staring us in the face, anf asking, where is your heart taking you, taking planet earth?
I will join that discussion later…but definitely feeling the expanded level of planetary cooking…..
love, chi, blessings,
ps. will read through rest of the forum discussions as I catch up. Unforrtunate lack of internet in most of the places I was hanging.October 3, 2006 at 12:44 pm #18321

Welcome back, maestro. Would you please expand on what you mean by this comment?

That discussion left me feeling deeply saddened. -A
