I recently journeyed, in shamanic trance, to The Cave of the Grandmothers, an otherworldly location that exists in the Isle of Avalon, or the inner Glastonbury… and there, I received a very special message.
The Grandmothers ~ such a jolly crew, by the way! ~ made a big fuss of me! It was like a homecoming. But then, they got serious, and they told me that I need to concentrate on talking about the importance of re-establishing our connection with the Land, and also help more people to achieve that connection through shamanic healing work.
It is also through our connection with the Land that we feel the continuity with our ancestors, which is a spiralling tendril running into the Earth and then further, into the Lower World or Underworld. This holds us firm in the holistic multi-dimensional reality.
‘Connection with the Land’ doesn’t just mean tending an organic garden, or growing herbs, or appreciating a sunset. It is about reinstituting the tangible connection with the spirits of the Land. I deliberately write Land with an upper case L because this means not just the landscape that you can see from your window, or when you go out walking, but it also includes those otherworldly, other dimensional Landscapes where the spirits, like the Grandmothers, reside.
