What is there to be said about Stone formations?
For men of consequence a mound should be raised to their memory, and for all other warriors who had been distinguished for manhood a standing stone, a custom that remained long after Odin’s time.—The Ynglinga saga I was asked to write something about stones as a topic and immediately the formation of Stonehenge appeared for my eyes.
So, I started searching and since my Nation of Birth is The Netherlands, I wanted to share with you these hunebedden we have in our country. They are found in the more northern part and are related to the stone graves found in Denmark and Sweden.
This brought another memory back in my mind. An experience that was intense to say at the least and quite unexpected as well. Whenever I go to a different countryside on holiday I tune in with the spirit of the region and offer my assistance and energy for the time of my stay to be of service any way I can. Just my way of connecting with Gaia, and the needs or gifts she has for me and anyone else for that matter.
Since we spend all our holidays in France for the last 27 years in the same region, we have seen many sights and visited many places during our stays. This trip we made was different in its outcome and unexpected. We have heard about the oldest burial side, a dolmen near a small town, up on a hilltop, surrounded by grain fields.
So 2 years ago, we were on holidays in France, in the region Ardennes, one of the areas with a lot of energy caused by the first and second World Wars. In every town or village, we could see the memorials and lists of civilians or soldiers from different nationalities that lost their lives.
We went for a tour and ended up at the foot of a hillside, on top where the oldest burial side was to be found. While getting out of the car a beautiful red/brown/orange colored butterfly appeared in front of us and guided the both of us up to the hill where we found the big megalithic dolmen.
Viewing the surroundings, we could see in all four directions, clear sight and saw the hills surrounding this one, the little village we just passed and the woods on one side as well as the large grain fields. It was a clear day, so we could see for miles and miles around. While standing there, this huge wave of sorrow welled up within me and I started to cry.
Feeling all the sorrow and grievance that was such a major part of this area, with all the fights, personal losses, the anger and the pains, all buried deep within the earth and I was asked to be part of this healing process by the spirit of the hill and the valleys surrounding us.
With an open heart and filled with compassion the crying went on till there came a point where the energy changed. All the while this happened, I rested in the arms of my husband, who understood and didn’t intervened, allowing me to be part of this cleansing and healing energy.
I could feel how the love and compassion for all sides who were part of these events and experiences came to some sort of ease in the energy around us. So, after a while I came back to my own time and space, at least it felt like that. Walking down the hill the big colored butterfly appeared again and with it a little white butterfly, coming in closer and closer and almost sitting on the shoulder of my husband, they both accompanied us down the track and back to where we had parked the car. It was a magical trip with lots of significance for the both of us.
So connecting with the ancient energy of the dolmen immediately after I asked the Spirit of the Region in what way I might serve and be present I received this intense experience to participate in a healing and cleansing way, so grateful and humbled I have been feeling this within my bones for a long time.
I really and truly believe whenever we come near any kind of burial side, we can bring in love and compassion for all that have lived and loved, through past, present and future. Because we can heal ancient and maybe fewer ancient wounds caused by extreme events if we tune in with the spirit of the region wherever you are, in any country all over the world.
This was triggered for me by the old dolmen we found on top of the hill. The dolmen and megaliths are part of our history as well as all the burials sides that have been created since humanity started to bury the dead into the ground. Yet that is a totally different topic to discuss. This wasn’t an impressive side as maybe Stonehenge or any other well-known Stone formation. Yet to me it spoke volumes.
