The Serpent is my favorite symbol of the ancient world. I have been asked why I haven’t made a Serpent post yet. The simple answer is because I mention the Serpent in several posts. The Serpent has to do with wisdom and because of that people associate the Serpent with the Divine Feminine. As you will see, wisdom is feminine, but the Serpent is the both masculine and feminine working together.

Establishing Sacred Land, or, A Home-Coming

The Druid's Garden

There has been a lot of talk in the American druid scene in the last few years about establishing sacred spaces, creating sacred groves, and really staring to re-enchant our land here. I think druids and other earth-centered spiritual traditions around the world, particularly those living in places shaped by colonization, face these same challenges: how do we create our own sacred spaces? What does that look like?  I wrote earlier this year, for example, about Stones Rising at Four Quarters farm, and the raising of standing stones. A few years ago, I’ve also written a series on sacred sites in the US and how to build some sacred sites. This post continues those conversations.

In my Stones Rising post, I talked about how establishing sacred spaces, as a community, was certainly an “American” challenge because of the history of colonialism and the…

Here is a very interesting stone for you.

The “Abundance Stone” crystal is a beautiful multi-faceted star, creating a 4-fold symmetry, according to principles of sacred geometry, appearing within it. One can see other stars refracted within the star as well.

The equilateral cross symbolizes the Tetrahedron. The Tetrahedron, ( four-sided pyramid ) is the geometrical principle underlying many types of both organic and inorganic molecules, providing the microscopic structure of diamonds and of the amino acids that are the building blocks of all life-forms on planet Earth.

The numerous facets create a dynamic pattern establishing many energy channels that connect the owner to Source, to Earth, to each of the four directions and to help harmonize your energy field with the cosmic flow of energy pouring from the Mother Goddess present throughout all creation.

Crystals become a teaching aid for centering ourselves in our most beneficial position…

The 5 Platonic solids (Tetrahedron, Hexahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, and Icosahedron) are ideal, primal models of crystal patterns that occur throughout the world of minerals in countless variations. There are only five regular polyhedra, that is, the only five solids made from the same equilateral equiangular polygons.

To the Greeks, these solids symbolized fire, earth, air, spirit (or ether) and water respectively. The cube and octahedron are duals, meaning that one can be created by connecting the midpoints of the faces of the other. The Icosahedron and Dodecahedron are also duals of each other, and three mutually perpendicular, mutually bisecting golden rectangles can be drawn connecting their vertices and midpoints, respectively. The tetrahedron is dual to itself.

Sacred Geometry is found in nature, in the art, and in ancient civilizations. It can be seen in crop circles, classic art, prayer wheels, mandalas, and DNA. It is found in the grand design…
