Glastonbury – The Heart Chakra of the World
“Glastonbury is a gateway to the Unseen. It has been a holy place and pilgrim-way from time immemorial, and to this day it sends its ancient call into the heart of the race it guards, and still we answer to the inner voice.”
—Dion Fortune, Avalon of the Heart
It is said that the Labyrinth of the Tor is natural and only accentuated by the human hand over the millennia to assist in marking certain astronomical events. This natural spiral phenomena instinctively feels right here when meditating on the fact that that once the whole area was covered by the sea and a mass of Ammonites lived here, who, over the millennia, left thousands of fossilised remains deep in the ground – all releasing the spiral of life energy vortex they naturally contained.
Judy Hall’s Vision
“At one time, Glastonbury stood tall above encircling marshes, in a shining sea. The Tor, healing well, sacred tree, and Abbey ruins are today enfolded. Within a landscape zodiac that may have been trodden by Christ himself. Tradition says he came here three times as a child.
In the pagan view of the world, Avalon was where the dead went to the Otherworld. Glastonbury is an interconnection of sacred sites from different traditions that creates one numinous whole. The spiral of an Ammonite mirrors the labyrinth that winds its way up the Tor.”
This unseen spiral energy of life can be sensed when you enter into the realms of Avalon. To walk the Labyrinth to the top of the Tor is to take a pilgrimage in homage to this circulating, life giving force.
Just like the spiralling energy within our hearts.
Glastonbury truly is the Heart Chakra of the Mother Earth.
