Glastonbury Tor at sunset
With the town nestled around its base, the Tor is at the heart of the mystical Somerset landscape and sits on a major Earth energy line. This energy infuses the local landscape with a tangible feeling of gentleness, and a real heart-opening connection.
Clouds were sweeping in for the evening and at the top the wind was whipping past, a cool finish to a hot spring day.
The tower is all that remains of the 14th century St Michael’s Church, mostly demolished during the English Reformation in 1539. The hill itself is circled by a series of terraces, whose origin and purpose is, according to English Heritage, unknown. There are 7 rings, and it has been suggested that these formed a spiral walkway, a pilgrimage route up the hill. The hill has been a place of pilgrimage for many thousands of years.
I experienced the energy lines as a tingling, pulsing, electric warmth through the feet. At such places, we feel directly the aliveness of the Earth, and how alive we are, by direct connection.
“Every energy line is made up of from a marginally different set of frequencies giving each a ‘signature’ which can, with practice, be identified by a dowser as easily as a favourite label on a shelf. They are the earth’s equivalent of our nervous and meridian systems and throb to the rhythms of the universe.”
