The Atlantic Ocean welcomed me into one of her most wonderful corners where her waters circulate, inhale and exhale, a precious little corner where the eye sees an unspoilt tidal beach sentried by thousands of enormous tide-rounded boulders which have rolled with the tide for millions of years. Here’s where I was asked to come, to the ocean of emotion, where mankind’s detritus has been belched year on year in an ever growing cycle of carelessness and greed.
I swim in her, have done for many years, it is where I am most ‘at home’ back in her salty womb, more and more she cries for healing, for us to relent, for she is the womb from whence we came not the toilet we carelessly flush.
The sacred spot chosen for me was Minard Beach, Annascaul, West Kerry, Ireland. Or to be specific the Atlantic Ocean 100 metres off this beach. Where the river runs into her arms by the ruins of a castle – destroyed by Cromwell – but now home to crows, bats and a very elusive owl. A sacred artesian well springs up alongside with a early Christian cross, it’s horseshoe shape tells of it’s pagan roots depicting the arc of the rise and fall of the Sun as he bathes Mother Earth in light. From this well the water for the healing came.
The morning came and a man peeled bare on the beach and inventively stashed a quarter of the water activated by David’s doings into the minimum of speedos with a splash of humour and swam out to the chosen spot. Circling the intended spot and saying prayers and feeling no small amount of trepidation I called on the Emerald Heart light, my Christ light and the Beloved Blue Ray and the support of my direct blood ancestors of this land and of the land itself. Circling and diving down and chatting to herself the Ocean 100 metres from where the river poured it’s cold mountainous waters in I was drawn to fact that I was not Alone! I felt the support of so many others who had harnessed their hearts to the Earth healing project, this was not an individual’s solitary effort but part of a greater oneness. Thank You All, though I know not your names or faces but recognise the kindred desire in your hearts.
I opened the container and poured out the activated water and swam away quickly not wanting to be anywhere nearby. Back on the beach I would love to say a rainbow came out and 3 swans flew past, no, I saw nothing but had a direct feeling that this was all above and beyond my mind and senses, past my sensory understanding and the needs of my inquiring brain. My heart felt good, even if my stomach was uneasy.
I said thanks and went home for food. The next day when I visited a local farmer with his two young children had left ewes and their newly born lambs bleating and gambolling nicely at the foot of the castle beside the healing vortex. I have never seen lambs there before and it would do your heart good to watch them. I have been back several times and swim on the other side of the bay accepting that it’s doing what it’s doing and I’m content not knowing how it’s doing it.
I poured the remainder of the water out onto the land days ago and much to my surprise it was cloudy with algae and things one would not chose to drink…
I am delighted to be part of this lifelong project of Earth Healing, and yes one cannot give without receiving, more of that anon…
