As with the Sword again we are dealing with Arthurian myth, and also ancient symbols. As is usual with these energies they have many functions but the prime energetic function of the chalice is as a vessel! It is not an attunement energy but something that you ‘become’ as you continue to clear out your own personal issues and devote yourself to service of the Planet and its healing. You literally become the vessel of Divine energies. This means that you are an open channel and have agreed with your guides and Elders to be the receptacle of energies which then can be placed or used in the environment in order to bring balance and healing.
Sometimes, when I am passing an attunement I am holding a chalice and giving a communion wafer to someone. This is usually because I am going to be giving a specific energy to someone. The communion wafer is the energy of the Mother. It is her ‘bread’, the bread of life which sustains us and is given as a gift from her chalice, her vessel. The ‘communion bread’ is her substance but it has also been charged with the Divine Masculine Solar energies and so it brings more abundance with it.
Yesterday, while I was writing and listening to music I felt the need to raise my arms up. This is usually when I am about to receive energies from ‘upstairs’. One of the energies I brought down was a large communion wafer, like the one the Catholic priest eats in a mass. This means that I am about to pass on a larger amount of energy than usual and as my friend Chris (without whom the Gaia Method would probably never have happened) is coming to Luxor for a month, and will go through his sixth gateway initiation, I imagine it will be for him! So. again, the energies which you will need will often be given in advance. All you have to do is be open to receive!
When you are about to do some energywork your guides place the necessary energies into your centre. You literally feel like you are an open cup which is being filled and this feeling can be very physical. It can feel like you have something heavy in your belly. These energies are very real and, like the water energies of the ‘umbilical’, you will carry them until you have placed them where they need to be.
Once you have become the energies of the Grail you are also then able to anchor that energy in the earth. While I was working in Winchester with Chris and Eartha we had to join energy lines together, over a period of time; having received our ‘instructions and downloads’ at the Chalice Well in Glastonbury. Together these lines joined into an archetypal energyfield of fish, Chalice and crib, joined together to create the energies of male and female fertility. In the image the chalice is the two yellow lines which cross. Each point, and end of a line, joins to a sacred site. The fish encompasses the whole image; it represents the fertility of water.i.e. the river Itchen. (I will deal with the fish energy in another post). We didn’t know that that was going to be the outcome, we just followed our directions, anchoring and walking a line until it became apparent that what we were doing was creating an archetypal energyfield in the landscape.
The entire energy is the Fish in the Chalice which leads to a divine Birthing (Crib) of energies in Winchester. I am aware that much of this work appears in Christian symbols but these symbols are ageless and were incorporated into Christian religion because they are potent symbols of power and contain universal meaning. But these energies are connected to nature. The fertility of the water, the masculine principle joining with the feminine energies in the landscape combine to create the birth of new thinking, new ways of living which are more in tune with the land, and new life, a wondrous creation.
I remember the first time I became aware of how my guides fill my ‘chalice’ with energies in preparation for a working. Chris and I were due to go to Farley Mount the following day. It was January 2009. We were sitting in the caravan when one of my Elder guides came in:
“Yesterday I had one of the Elders, Antaris, come in and he planted a white flame with blue, pink and yellow flames as though it were one four-fold flame, in my centre. It felt like it was for the work at Beacon Hill. Then four lines went out from the flame and created an X at the tip of each was a white lotus with the three colours on the petals. They felt like four places where the flowers would be ‘set’.”
I could feel the energy moving in through the top of my head and through my body until it ‘sat’ behind my navel. It was a very strange experience as though I was an open pot. At that point I was not aware of how the energies worked or of what was the significance of the Chalice. But, the following day I planted the energies and then I understood, so that when it happened the next time I was more prepared.
Now it seems to be a common occurrence that before I am due to do any work, whether it be to pass an attunement or to work ‘in the field’, the energies are placed in my chalice. If I am given energies to hold and I am not passing an attunement then I know that within a short time I will have to do some work somewhere.
The more you progress the larger your energy-field becomes and so the more energies you can ‘contain’. Doing any other form of healing or energyfield training helps to expand the amount of energy you can hold and channel. Two of the most useful trainings I have done in this regard were Flower of Life and Merkaba training, plus Magnified Healing. The more healing modalities you can add to your ‘toolbox’, the better you become at channelling what is required, and the more able you become at ‘holding energies in your ‘Chalice’.
