We have travelled many miles from North Yorkshire to Dorset, England, and are now, searching, within a mixed leaf wood, attempting to find a familiar yet hidden place, and a deeper connection with our ancestors.
We know that we are being guided to a particular location as we can feel we are getting closer. We stop and tune in to the energy of the earth and trees, and know there is something here waiting for us. We sense our friends nearby, and rest on a fallen branch. We realize we are sat in the middle of a circle of trees, and then suddenly are visited by one of our guides, a female elder of the tribe.
She proceeds to direct us to an ancient coin buried deep beneath the leaves and moss. She tells us the story of the coin and where it originated from in the year 282 AD. The owner of the coin we are being told about is St Catherine of Alexandria, who had visited this area. (We were told the coin was brought to us here to help us to remember our connection with this ancestor.)
During our research prior to travelling to Dorset, we learnt about the legend of a St Catherine who visited the area, but weren’t sure if this was the same St Catherine, or how we had any connection with her or the area. We were also aware of ley-lines running beneath the land, and that a priory once stood here.
We were informed by our guide that the site we were sat on had once been used as a portal for travel between other times and places via the ley-lines.
We felt the energy course through us here and were able to tune into sensations and memories of how we were connected to St Catherine. This gave us more clarity and understanding about our journey to this part of the country, and also why the previous day we had visited Glastonbury, with a similar connection having transpired there.
We were able to piece together the purpose of the other quests we had been sent on by our guides recently, which have all enabled us to understand more about our roles in this lifetime and beyond.
