but backwards to the beginning.... where I use to sit on the end of my bed during the night.. my bed was under a window and sometimes at night I would wake up when everyone was asleep and kneel on the end of my bed, looking far out into the night..up at the twinkling stars and most probably the Moon... the night sky was like a deep bottomless pit. Full of magick and so wise. I still remember wondering to my small self, why I was here. I have never stopped wondering. as you know.
I am truly beginning to believe that through out our lives we are placed where we are for different reasons .. circumstances over the years have lead me to where I am now. All those workshops I have done, my Cornish ancestry, my love of the garden, my concern about the world...all pointing to Earth keeping. even having Dutch husband.. who supports me on my journey and is always, always willing to build whatever it is that I may need in my garden... this even supports my mission, my purpose.
I believe that I was sent here to Woodford, at this time of my life, to help heal Mother Earth... to heal my little area that I call Inglewood which in turn will send ripples of healing out to the world... my home sits atop a ridge that is part of the Blue Mountains. From the front I can see north... an open space stretching far into the bush... and from the back I can see south.. two valleys come towards my land, rush up the sides of this ridge and join together here at Inglewood... it is like my home is sitting in an energy channel. Don't get me wrong.. I do have neighbours across the road and next door but when I look directly out of either the front or back of my home.. there is an open channel far as the eye can see and beyond.
Under the pine tree, grow toadstools and many many times I have taken photos of orbs. Plants thrive, most times growing larger than the expected size. I remember when I planted a rose which was only supposed to grow about a metre high... 3 metres later it was like a triffid.. and bloomed every single day of the year. Tamarillos produce prolifically, oranges, passionfruit. My apple tree still survives despite being infested with borer. I often wonder if there are either leylines or a vortex in my yard. I often wonder if the leylines could be connected to those that run through the UK...when I put my hands into the earth, planting garlic or apple trees, I am in turn healed.. an energy exchange.
when I meditate visions of stone circles come into my mind... I see crystals hanging from trees & crystals being used to grid around my yard. I know that in my near future I will be doing something like this to help bring the energy grid of Mother Earth back into balance... and I am not the only one. There are many of us all over the world, doing the same. Not exactly the same as I am.. oh no.. some are investigating better ways to grow vegetables, using permaculture and dowsing. Others are living a simple life, not buying junk & crap, living a contented life, loving where they are.. others are planting trees.. the list goes on and on..Something is afoot. I can feel it. This is why I must play-act at being a hedgewitch.. it is something that I cannot ignore.. it gets stronger with each day.. sometimes in meditation I see nature devas helping me. Sometimes I see myself touching plants in my garden - an energy exchange, helping them to grow. Touching the Earth with my hands, healing & nurturing... I really do believe many of us, maybe healers in previous lives, have come back to heal again. this time to heal Mother Earth..
I was told once, by a shamanic healer, that my future would involve geomancy.. I had no idea what that meant.. until the other day I googled 'dowsing'.. and realized that they are connected.. so it seems to me, that I am in exactly the right place at exactly the right time.. I am now in the process of embarking on a correspondence course on Dowsing... by an Australia woman! at last! Alanna Moore
of course the dreaded voice of doubt is there, telling me that I am insane, deluded.. why would a simple person like me be an Earth Healer.. but you know, I think it is the simple people like us who make up the majority.. we don't need fame and fortune (even though fortune would be nice)... we know in our hearts that to heal the Earth is what it is all about.. so I am happy playing EarthHealer..it makes me happy.. it makes me tingle with delight.. it makes my soul sing.. anyone else out there as crazy & deluded as I am??
