Two More Circles in Wiltshire

Over the last two days there have been two more crop circles, both in flowering canola again.

On April 24th there was one just outside the stone circle at Avebury looking like a symbol for a bright star or our sun. It isnt symmetrical but then nor are the emissions from the sun.

The April 25th formation is at Morgan's Hill, close to Devizes. Morgan's Hill is a feminine energy sacred site and a popular venue for crop circles each year. We shall have to wait for an aerial photo of this one. The farmer has denied access to this formation. This is understandable in immature crops as the stems will rise up again if not trampled under foot and he will then not lose that area of crop. We believe that a donation box in the field for visitors a crop circles to make a contribution to the farmer is a win/win situation with 'croppies' gaining access to formations and the farmers being compensated for loss of yield.

Hectic Start to the Crop Circle Season

The crop circle season usually starts slowly with lengthy periods of time between the first few formations. This year there have now been two confirmed circles and four other unconfirmed reports. The second circle of the year is close to the ancient sacred site of West Kennet Longbarrow, a five thousand year-old underground chamber used for initiations and funerary rites. This circle is also in oilseed rape (canola) For photographs visit http://www.cropcircleconnector.com/2009/westkennettlongbarrow/westkennettlongbarrow2009.html Also click on field reports. I have to say that I'm not very impressed by it, the geometry is very sloppy and the early formations arent usually as intricate as this - things always change of course. But it also just doesnt feel right to Cameron or myself. Jay Gouldner also doesnt like it. Of course its impossible to really say unless you go into it which is why I'm excited to be going to England in ten days. There are also four 'rumours' or reported sightings but which havent been photographed or entered as yet. If it carries on like this there'll be a record number of crop circles this year, lets hope we dont get too many hoaxes.

Aerial photos of first formation

Here are aerial photos taken by Lucy Pringle of the first crop circle reported in England this year. See the post from yesterday below for more information. For full details go to http://www.cropcircleconnector.com/2009/ridgeway/ridgeway2009.html

you can see from the photo at the top (by Rob Speight) how difficult it is to see the pattern from the ground once the crop starts to grow up again.

First crop circle report in England

It appears that the first crop circle may have arrived in England! This photo is from a long way away but the circle is the dark shadow just in front of the trees. Its no surprise that its close to Avebury where the majority of formations occur. The report states that it is difficult to see from the road and may have occurred 4-5 days ago. In this early crop the stems quickly get drawn back up by phototropism and then the pattern is difficult to identify except from the air. There are no aerial pictures yet. The report does remark on some scrapping along some of the stems, a tell tale sign of a hoax formation having been laid down by using a board that scrapes the stems it comes into contact with. We'll have to wait for further information on this one.

This seems to us to be one of the truths of being human and its implications are profound indeed.

"Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth…that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way."
From " The Scottish Himalayan Expedition" by WH Murray.

Other popular ways of saying this are 'follow your passion', 'act as if magic exists and it does' and the 'law of attraction'. If these are true then it puts us squarely in control of the events that arise in our lives. If we live our lives without passion or commitment then we suffer events we say we dont want but create by default, whereas if we are wholehearted about our chosen course of action and really are committed to it at a soul level then we attract everything necessary to bring our dreams into reality.

Most of us walk with old voices that tell us this is too scary a step to take and that we should remain safe in our known way of being, after all it isnt that bad is it, we've gotten used to it like this, and it could be worse! A line from a Melissa Etheridge song says "Keeping me safe in these chains, precious pain." And Marianne Williamson wrote "We serve no-one by playing small." Its our choice, but if it feels scary to open up to the possibility of creating bliss in our lives, we're not alone. Our soul nature or higher power is just waiting to help guide us, all we have to do is quieten our chattering mind, say hello to ourself and ask for assistance. The rest will follow...

Stonehenge is arguably the most famous sacred site in the world. One and a half million people a year visit this pile of stones in the English countryside, why? Reasons are many and varied, but behind them seems to be a desire deep within the human experience to reconnect with source/spirit. People have needs beyond the physical and emotional and many people know intuitively where to go to satisfy those needs.
Stonehenge is normally out of bounds except for certain hours and yet each year the demand from people to gain access to this temple at sunrise on the summer solstice is so great that the great stones are opened up freely to all comers. Thousands of people enter the normally off-limits inner sanctum to watch the sun rise and bless the earth once again. This is an experience most people will never forget.
Stonehenge was part of a much larger Neolithic complex of structures spread out across the landscape of Wessex. It was built in several stages over a period from 2800-1500 BC. We still know so little about the people who constructed it, how they did it and the all-important question of why they erected it in the form they did.
Archeologists provide some evidence that can help us with 'when' it was built and where the stones came from. 'Why' is really the question most people want answered. The relatively new field of archeo-astronomy is shedding light on the alignments of many sacred sites including Stonehenge to celestial events and the traditional Celtic festival dates.
