A Personal Journey through the Sacred Sites of South West UK - an article by Julie Umpleby
Much has been written in numerous publications about the sacred sites in the UK. They are vast in number and can be found, precisely located on ancient ley lines, across the landscape of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Hundreds of stone circles, enigmatic solitary standing stones, engraved rocks and Neolithic barrows have intrigued historians, new age travellers, truth seekers and scientists alike over the years.
Individuals have discovered cosmological relationships both within and between sites, sacred geometric templates found in their construction and relationships with other sites, celestial maps, stones with special magnetic qualities, engravings, and of course the enduring mystery as to how and why these sites were built as well as utilised. Despite the thousands of pages of assumed, channelled and logically deduced information, our relationship with the sacred sites remains one of personal interaction and understanding. My own experience through 3 of the well-known sacred sites, enabled me to take my own work and spiritual journey to a completely new level. I also was able to understand deeply, our relationship with our ancestral heritage and the collective unconscious. These three special sites were Avebury, West Kennet Longbarrow and Stonehenge, all located in the South West of England in Somerset and Wiltshire.
What is particularly poignant for me and my experiences through these sites is that as a student, I had an inherent dislike of history. Not only could I not understand the need to simply remember and regurgitate dates and places, I also didn’t see the point in spending so much timein the past. Having a natural scientific mind I was far more fascinated with how life and things worked . It was only in 2010 that ancestral communication at the sacred sites revealed to me our timeless link with ancient ancestry through our very biology.
In the highly synchronistic ways in which Spirit communicates with us, I had been receiving prompts about Ancestral communication for a few months earlier in 2010. So, when a friend and myself were invited by author Peter Knight to join an ‘invitation only’ Ancestral drumming ceremony at West Kennet Longbarrow, we didn’t hesitate. This sacred place in southern England is often thought of as a burial chamber, but the distinct celestial and other sacred site alignments suggest that this was a special ancestral ceremonial place. The barrow is aligned with the enigmatic Silbury Hill (part of the Avebury complex) and Stonehenge, as well as numerous other ancient energy spots. At this special ceremony, we had direct communication with an Ancestor known as Albon who had been waiting for an opportunity to speak and guide those who are ready to listen. We also connected to the timeless grids of creation through a special ceremonial stone deep in the West chamber.
This first experience was enhanced by a trip to the inner circle of stones at Stonehenge the following month at full moon. To get up close and personal with these enormous Sarsens, now requires special permits and is limited to small groups – you can no longer enjoy the tactile connection with the stones as an ordinary tourist! We spent time connecting with the different energies of each of the stones, cleansed the site, and actually discovered the stone that communicates with West Kennet, as well as a monolith that had a distinct link with the star grids. This isn’t really surprising when we realise that within this amazing network of sacred sites can be found precise geometric correlations with Giza in Egypt – a known ‘stellar map’. This is particularly evident in the dimensions, earth grid placement and pyramidal (conical) shape of Silbury Hill.
If one takes the time within these sites to be still and listen, we are afforded a priceless gift of connecting through dimensions of time and space to the timeless wisdom of ancient ancestors, and to a subtle energy network that is facilitated by Gaia herself. It is almost as if you can hear the stones relaying signals from one site to the next. You can feel and see the ancient shaman ancestors receiving and sending their messages to and from other realms through the rocks. It should come as no surprise to know that the rocks used at most of the sacred sites have a highcrystalline content, so they actually act like giant crystal resonators – storing, sending and retrieving information. Perhaps this is the reason that many of the rocks were ‘shipped in’ from locations far removed from the actual site itself. The sacred sites themselves are all located at strategic points or vortexes on the planetary grids, and the charged stones enable information transfer through the grids. In my experience, this is indeed what takes place.
My personal journey through just 3 of these enigmatic sites has enriched me in so many ways, not least of which was the reconnection with our human heritage through some amazing ancestral connections. The healing alignment they supported me in developing subsequent to this is an entire story of its own……for another time!
Our Ancestors have been waiting for us to hear them so that they can also provide us with support through this major transition we are going through on our planet. Are you ready to hear the call?
There is also a beautiful free e-book called “Dumisani’s Gift” available on my website for download. Written in 2010 by Yasmine Rooney, it is a novel oriented around collective, crosscultural healing including and guided by The Ancestors. It is well worth reading and places a new level of understanding on the subject. You can download this free e-book here : http://www.diamondlightworld.net/articles-and-more.html ¨ Julie Umpleby is an international teacher and speaker, as well as being an energy and bodywork therapist. She developed the very special Diamond Light Grid Alignment process which has incredible significance for our spiritual evolution – it creates a powerful link between science and metaphysics, past and future, masculine and feminine energies. More than that it acts as a ‘shield’ to help your physical body cope with the increased solar and cosmic radiation currently hammering our atmosphere.
