At the spring equinox some years ago I had a dream...
I saw a large turtle made of quartz crystal. When I got home it was there but it had turned into a crocodile. The entire length of its back was comprised of thousands of clustered quartz points. I knew that it had come to perform a cleansing ceremony on me and I instinctively laid down, face up, on its back with my spine aligned with the croc's.
No sooner had I done this than a woman appeared. She had long flowing hair and a purple gown and she seemed to be floating in the air above my legs. Without a word being exchanged she extended her arm and pointed a finger at my heart chakra. Multi-coloured flames shot out from her finger like a firework and they ignited a fire in my heart. I was being cleansed of fear as I'd asked for in a meditation.
In my waking life some months later I visited Nanjizal Bay at the very tip of Cornwall, England. This is the place where the powerful Michael and Mary earth energy currents first start their remarkable journey across the breadth of England. They continue for some 350 miles to the east coast passing through many sacred sites on the way, including Glastonbury and Avebury. (For a complete description of these energy currents and the sacred sites they empower see The Sun & The Serpent by Hamish Miller and Paul Broadhurst).
I had been there before and found an amazing crystal ram's head on the beach (that's a story for another time) but I was there this day to simply enjoy the beauty of the place, or so I thought. As I sat on a rock gazing out to sea I lazily brushed my foot from side to side in the sand. After a few strokes my foot was stopped by something hard. I brushed the sand aside and saw it was a quartz crystal point.
Eager to see more of it I crouched down and used my hands to clear away the sand. It was a cluster of quartz points that seemed to go on and on. Diligently I continued brushing the sand aside until the entire cluster was exposed - it was the shape of a full-sized crocodile hidden under the sand! My dream immediately came to mind and I knew I was being offered the gift of healing. You know the rest of the story!
