Well, dear Ones, it’s time for the next installment in the creation of a crystal grid to hold the energy for our sacred journey next week. (Scroll down for part 1.)
Last week inspiration came and the work was started. The crystal grid spent the weekend gathering energy in the Crystal Barn while we went off, with the crystal stall, to the Healing Light Festival.
I’ll tell you a little about waiting for inspiration for crystal grids. Even when we have been holding an intention for months, sometimes it doesn’t come until the last minute. This can be quite testing, but I have learned to trust. In the past, there have been times when Marcus has kept reminding me that time is getting short. I often get inspiration in the shower and once it was the very morning of the event. The thing is, until I know what’s needed, I don’t know! I once said that we had two choices - wait until I know or make something up. He doesn’t ask any more. This time it has been very slow and easy, with the whole energy building for months. You can read about the coming of the Horse Drum and beater in earlier blogs.
A short recap - the Crystal Grid has a large Chrysoprase flame in the centre. It is surrounded by Citrine skulls and Golden Labradorite for the Sun; Fluorite octahedra for Mercury; Rose Quartz hearts and Emerald for Venus; Jade hearts for Earth and Preseli Bluestone for our land/bit of Earth; Garnets for Mars.
Moon energy needed to be woven in with Earth, and yesterday I chose Moonstones in white, peach and silver grey. You can see them between the Jade hearts and Preseli Bluestone tumblestones.
After a few hours it was time to add the Asteroids - Ceres, Vesta, Pallas Athene and Juno. For these, the following stepped forward: Peridot for Ceres, Pink Petalite for Vesta, Herkimer Diamonds for Pallas Athene and Iolite for Juno.
It was then time for a rest to allow the energies to settle before adding Jupiter and Saturn.
For Jupiter I added Amethyst crystals and Sodalite tumblestones. The crystals, with points facing outwards, help to create the expansive energy of Jupiter. As they were placed, the grid certainly felt huge!
And finally, for this crystal grid and this Sacred Journey, Mookite was added for Saturn.
The grid will remain in the Crystal Barn until Friday morning, with the Horse Drum and beater. I had planned to make a beautiful bag for the drum, but he doesn’t want anything elaborate or at all ’frilly’ so I’ve ordered a very basic black drum bag.
On Friday, all will be carefully wrapped and taken to Pewsey where we will be based for a week. When there is time, we’ll post some information on our Heaven & Earth Community Facebook page so you can follow us, and join us in spirit if you are called to do so.
