 Post subject: A Day for Celebration
PostPosted: Sun Mar 22, 2015 6:40 pm 
Our first day of spring started with a super moon, total eclipse, and March equinox. What better way to celebrate it than visiting Glastonbury (a spiritual site) in the South West of England, a short distance from where I live.

For centuries, Glastonbury Tor has been one of the most spiritual places in the world. For many Christians, the Tor is a very important place for pilgrimage.
Glastonbury can also claim to have been one of the places Christ visited, with his uncle Joseph of Arimathea, credited with bringing sacred relics from the Holy Land to Britain in the first century CE.

There is also a Holy Thorn tree said to be descended from Joseph’s staff, which he planted, flowering twice each year to recall the birth and death of Christ and the bringing of Christianity to our islands. This was a sign for him to build the first church in England, which is now known as Glastonbury Abbey.

Our aim though, was to visit Chalice Well gardens (World Peace gardens) in Glastonbury. Walking along we could sense its peacefulness, and observing the beautiful carpets of daffodils, made our way to the Chalice Well for a midday meditation, with many other spiritual seekers, uniting at this unique place of worship. We could feel the stillness and oneness of everybody’s energies as all blended in medative prayer, invoking calm and inner reflection.

The Chalice Well is among the best known and most loved holy wells in Britain. It has been known as the ‘Red Spring’ or Blood Spring because of the red iron deposit the water leaves on everything it touches. Many legends are attributed to its waters not least among them is that they represent the blood of Christ, miraculously springing forth from the ground when Joseph of Arimathea buried or washed the cup used at the last supper.

Later, talking about this special occasion the speaker reminded us of what it felt like to be in the Garden of Eden, to experience heaven and earth as one. She continued to reiterate the importance of this triple event, explaining the eclipse was bringing the yin and yang energies to equilibrium to unify and create a new cycle of ‘being’.

All that we receive from the Source of divine grace and blessing comes from the Tree of Life. All that can be understood of how God operates within time, space, and matter also comes from the Tree of Life. For this 'Tree' is the bridge between the upper and lower worlds of Creation and between the higher and lower realms of light. Its roots are in Heaven, and its branches reach down to the lowliest places of the earth. Julie

The day was filled with light minded happy people and everywhere exuded an air of calmness, peace and tranquillity, even the dulcet tones of a harp being played in the distance added to the atmosphere. I realised on this day of celebration we were actually experiencing a little bit of heaven here on earth.
