The Eagles and the Crystals

“Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you’ve changed, by believing. Once you’ve changed, other things start to follow. Isn’t that the way it works?”
~ Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard

 

In January, we pulled down our massive Ancestors and Songlines crystal healing grid at our farm. Ben and my friend Satisha helped me to locate all of the stones that were beginning to be buried by the long summer grass that had grown up wildly all around them. We literally crawled around the grid on our hands and knees, feeling every inch of ground to pull out the stones which had lain there through sun and rain, moon and stars for nearly 8 weeks.

When the stones were removed I sorted through them and chose a selection to be tasked for my retreat students this year, plus a few extra that I may sell or give away at some stage. Ben then drove me and my stones to the very back of our property where the eagles live.

In the boughs of a mighty old gum tree is a huge platform made from sticks and branches. It is home to a nesting pair of wedge-tail eagles. The tree itself sits within a tangled thicket of scrub, privet and camphor. It’s private, secluded and the place holds an energy of wilderness and deep peace. The views from the top of the tree must be incredible. The birds would see our entire valley and river system, and then over the saddle of the hill behind them and into the next valley too. We often see the eagles and their fledglings soaring on the thermals around our farm. They are massive birds. Majestic. Fearless.

At the foot of this ancient tree, beneath the eagles’ nest I laid out a new crystal grid. I sang magic into it the way my old Aboriginal Aunties taught me. I added my own magic too, and the magic of my ancestral line. I wanted these crystals to soak up all of that energy, and the energy of the land, of the tree and of the eagles. Of course other creatures will add their own energies. There is so much native wildlife here. And there is the energy of country. It’s a tangible energy, and it makes the crystals sing.

On Tuesday afternoon we went back and retrieved these stones. They have been through wild storms, eclipses, full moons, dark moons, pink moons, bright clear skies and gentle sunsets. After so long in the dirt they were encrusted with earth and bits of leaf and grass. They smelled like sweet loamy soil and sunshine. And goodness, how they felt in my hand!

This weekend I’ll scrub them clean and lay them out in the sun to dry, and then I’ll choose one for each of my Beginners Channelling students, for them to learn how to use when our retreat starts just ten days from now.

Maybe one of these stones will find its way to you one day. I truly believe that they always find the person who needs them most.

They are simply wonderful. I know you’ll love them as much as I do!

“Think about our bodies. We’re a chain of veins and organs and they’re all interconnected. If something isn’t going right in one area, the whole system can get out of whack. That’s the way I see the world. We’re all connected. I don’t see myself as this separate entity. I see things in a much larger scale. Everything I do directly affects another person, all the way down the chain. Every person I help can help another; we’re all connected. Change happens one person at a time. And I want to commit my life to seeing that through.”
~ Katie Kacvinsky

 

Am I insane?

Maybe.

But I can’t help myself.

 

I conceived this simple project. To create a crystal grid on my property, to help to provide energetic support for us as we shift from the old energy into the new. For support from our ancestors and guides as we shift old family patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us. As we pattern-break for ourselves and our loved ones. I wanted to help support us as we leave 2016, and this age-old cycle of patriarchal energy.

I created this grid to help our feet find our souls’ own songlines as we walk into the new energy. So that we can become part of this great shift of consciousness by being who we came here to be, and doing what we came here to do as we move into 2017 and this dawning new energetic era.

Each stone takes me three minutes to dedicate.

I choose one that feels right for you. I hold it in my hands, I close my eyes, and I offer up my prayer and dedication – that your family line know healing, that you release old patterns, beliefs and relationships that no longer serve you. That you gently and easily let go of anger, guilt, shame, disconnection, old hurts. I pray and intend that your family line returns to a place of love, flow and abundance. That you move into your heart-space, and reconnect with your own Soul Wisdom. I offer up my prayer that your feet find their way in 2017. That your path becomes clear. That you can more easily be yourself. That you know and express yourself truly. That you live life to your highest potential. That you are loved for who you are. That you come to know how much you are loved.

I arrange the stones I have blessed and take a photo, so I can tag the picture on social media. I want you to feel involved and connected. I want you to know that you are not alone – that you matter, and that you are supported.

Then we carry the stones down to the grid, and I place them, one by one.

After which I go back to the computer, and gather more names, and write new lists and the process begins again.

 

There are over 900 stones in the grid now. 900 people, radiating love and positive shift to so many more.

I will be adding more stones to this grid until 12pm on Tuesday 27th December, 2016. (That’s Sydney, Australia time) If you’d like to add your name, please let me know in the comments below.

If you’ve already asked there is no need to ask again. I have you.

There’s another way you can help. You can make your own grid. For details go to the Free Stuff section in my shop, and select the Ancestral Healing Grid Instructions. (And be aware that it may take an hour or so for the information to be emailed after selection of this option.) It’s easy to do, even if you’ve never done something like this before.

Know that I’m thinking of you. Know that I’m holding you in my thoughts and prayers. That I’m holding space for you and your family right now.

I might be crazy, but I think this matters.

I love you, and I wish you well,

Nicole <3 xoxo

 

*Below are just a few pictures of how this grid has grown. Please be patient if you haven’t seen your name tagged yet on my Instagram and Facebook posts. It all takes time, and there are so many names to tag! You can follow me at both places by searching for Cauldrons and Cupcakes <3

And another thought. If other middle-aged women are crazy cat ladies, I must be the crazy rock lady. I easily have 1000 stones in my grid now, and I still have plenty left to choose from…
