Notes of the Song

The Song of Creation is an overwhelming, powerful thing. It is too great a thing for anyone’s mind to fully comprehend in its entirety. Those of us who have studied it very quickly realised that there are five different ways to look at the Song, and that most people fall into one of these five.

For those who are interested in learning more about the Song and how its power can influence your life for the better, here is a brief overview of these five groups and how they interact with the Song to best improve their own life.

Pro

The Pro are the most difficult group to define. They can take on aspects of each of the other groups, but what sets them apart is their ability to lead. They use the Song to help persuade those around them to follow where they go. This is a subtle thing, and few truly aware that they are doing it on a conscious level. They form the hearts of their communities quite naturally, although this causes issues for the untrained Pro, as they attempt to take on too much.

Rho

Rho use the Song to look at the patterns of history. They have greater memories of their past lives than most, and can draw on that knowledge to help them to know the best way forward into the future. Their knowledge of the repeated melodies of the Song on every level makes them skilled at precognition, although it takes a good deal of training for these warnings to be anything more than a momentary sinking feeling which comes far too late for anything to be changed.

Tal

Tal use the Song to help people. They are deeply empathic people, which makes them natural caregivers. Their use of the Song focuses on the people around them, and they use it to allow those closest to them to gain whatever they truly need. Unfortunately, an untrained Tal will either become worn out and exhausted from taking on the emotions of others, or else develop such a strong shield against them that they become skilled, uncaring manipulators.

Mai

Mai use the Song in physical ways. They are practical people, who focus on their personal physical skills more than on those around them or their environment. They are imposing people, and to those who do not know them, they can be intimidating presences. Mai usually use the Song to help focus their martial abilities. A good deal of martial arts training comes from the ideals of the Mai.

Kiyan

Kiyan use the Song to boost nature. They are happiest when surrounded by plants and animals, and make keen gardeners and animal trainers. They are good healers, and will focus their use of the song to keep everything and everyone around them as healthy as possible. The modern world is often difficult for Kiyan to deal with, as their empathy extends to the plants and animals around them – it is difficult for a Kiyan to walk past a recently felled tree without feeling overwhelming sorrow and pain.

The Great Stones

Britain is dotted with ancient standing stones, some single monuments and some arranged in circles. While Stonehenge is certainly the most famous of them all, there are many others worth the mention. The Dragon Project has studied the Rollright Stones in Oxfordshire has detected ultrasonic rays as well as radiation and magnetic energies coming from the stones.

The pattern of energy coming from the stones varies in a way which is linked to the natural cycles of the moon and the turning of the seasons. Photographs have shown various effects around the stones, from orbs of light to odd shimmers in the air.

Many people detect actual presences near these old stones. Standing stones are said to be doorways to other worlds and people have heard music and seen lights and strange people around them for centuries.

Creating Your Own Stone Circle

It is not always possible to work in close contact with the actual ancient stone circles. Many of them are now protected from casual visitors and the vandalism of centuries by English Heritage and the National Trust. Thankfully, for people who want to get in close contact with the Song of the Earth, it is entirely possible to create your own circle in your garden.

They do not need to be nearly as large as the ancient circles, either – which is a relief, as few of us have that sort of space.

Take time in the creation of your circle. Choose stones which you feel a connection to, and ones which feel ‘right’. Make sure that they are sturdy. They do not have to be taller than 30cm high for your vertical stones, with longer and thinner ones for the horizontals.

Choose the location for your circle, and light a candle each time you place a stone in position. First place the four main compass stones at the north, south, east and west points of your circle. Then the mid-point stones at the north-east, south-east, north-west and south-west of the circle. Spread these placements down over several days, placing one stone at a time. While the candle burns, meditate on the stone you have placed. Give it, and the position it is placed in, your full attention.

Consecrating Your Circle

Once every stone is placed, circle it nine times clockwise at dawn, beginning from the North Stone. As you pass each stone, touch it with a living branch from a nearby tree. Allow that to settle for the day, and then circle it nine times anti-clockwise at sunset, beginning at the South Stone. This time, touch each stone with a naturally fallen dead branch.

Light a golden candle in the centre and circle it with your favourite brown, yellow, red, or orange crystals. It can be fun to invite a few friends over to dance around your circle, if you have people who share your interest nearby.

The day after, sit quietly in your circle and allow the sounds of the Earth wash over you. Bury one of your favourite crystals in the heart of your circle, and feel free to place another standing stone over it if it feels right.

Try to spend a few moments each day with your circle, circling it at least once each way to help focus the energy of the Song of the Earth. Over time, your circle will grow in power and will offer you calming energy and mild healing, as the earth gives you back the attention you give to it multiplied several times over.
