This month, just before the private ceremony and gonging in Stonehenge, Gary and I went to Glastonbury for our usual recharge, and stocking up on healing water, crystals, and the magical uplifting atmosphere of this unique place…
As per usual, once we came to Glastonbury we went to Red and White Springs near Chalice Well to get some water. Water there is believed to have healing powers. The red one has more irony taste and has an uplifting, energising effect – similar to drinking a cup of strong coffee, but without the usual disadvantages, like ups and downs of energy, associated with drinking coffee. The white spring is more gentle – the water there has milky taste, it is very gentle, soothing, and uplifting. If you ever go to Glastonbury, I highly recommend taking a few empty bottles with you to fill them up with healing water – we then use it therapeutically in small amounts.
After visiting the springs, we went to Glastonbury Abbey. The entrance is not free there, but definitely worth a visit!
There are a few buildings on the abbey grounds apart from the abbey itself. We often like to explore the acoustics in the small church just by the entrance – we find acoustics there quiet fascinating!
In the abbey itself there is a potential burial place of King the Arthur, and both Gary and me can sense quiet strong energies at the altar.
However, besides the buildings, there is also a magnificent garden with a pond to explore. There are apple trees in the garden, and we were lucky to come in the harvest season when they were covered with apples! You can also find carp fish in the pond – they are quiet curious and friendly, and tend to come to the surface! There is even a smaller pond on the grounds, but it is considerably smaller than the main pond.
What I absolutely love about this place is that it also has a woody, or wild part in it – with lots of wild plants and alleys to explore. We tend to spend lots of time there!
Our usual walk always finishes with the grounding meditation in the abbey to sink in with the atmosphere and the energy of the place.
Full of gratitude and energy form recharging, we carry on with our trip, and our next stop is the crystal shops!
We tend to spend lots of time in Glastonbury shops – if not buying, than learning lots about crystals, or unusual musical instruments. There is also a shop with a very good selection of books that are often on sale. So if you ever go to Glastonbury we recommend putting aside lots of time for the shops, as it can effectively take you a day to cover everything!
Even though this time we didn’t go to Glastonbury Tor as we were running out of time, we definitely recommend it to anyone who goes there – the atmosphere there is absolutely breath-taking, and the view… beautiful! It is best to climb it in good whether at sunrise or sunset – that’s when the atmosphere is most magical! And you should always take caution in rainy weather as the climb is quiet steep and it can be very slippery!
Have you ever been to Glastonbury? If so, what are your impressions?
