The Orkney Wisdom path is a specific pathway of development within the Gaia Method and needs an entire book written about it. This is the story of how this came about and what is yet to come. We will organise workshops to Orkney yearly, as of 2021, to train those who resonate with this pathway.
A year and a half ago, I went to Orkney with Eartha Luck, and what an incredible place.
From the minute we set foot on the island, I felt myself being connected to it. As we drove around, exploring, we decided that Orkney should be named the Island of Rainbows, as there were so many of them.
Our first port of call, on a freezing wet November day, was the Stones of Stenness. The energy was palpable as we walked through the huge stones and into the centre of the circle. Having done some energy-work there, anchoring the rainbow rays to each of the stones, including the ones that were no longer there, we proceeded to the Ring of Brodgar, but the small road that bridged the two stone circles was an energetic gateway, which we first had to open.
The gateway itself was in the water, a few meters out, and once it was open we could continue to the larger circle. In opening the gateway we had also opened the connection beneath the work we had been doing in Southern England to this more northerly site. As the Guardian of the Gateway said: The Orkney Isles are now blessed with the Light of the South.’
We wandered around the large circle and were told to connect to Neptune’s Lair. So, a few days later we found ourselves at Birsay, fighting against the wind and the rain. It was a stormy week, but storms and giant waves are irresistible, and while we were there, trying to stay upright, Neptune appeared. I was told to ‘write the words that I was given’. But it was 18 months later before I understood what he meant.
We did a lot of work in Orkney, at both circles, and at Maes Howe; a beautiful, women’s wisdom sacred place. We were given many gifts and much information, including a very large, leather-bound book by the guardian energies of Brodgar.
This book of information began to come through in May last year and It is called: ‘The Shamanic Wisdom of the Orkney Isles.’
This is what they had to say about it:
Liken it to a rose, opening to accept the rays of the sun. Little by little the petals unfold, revealing the beauty within. That is Orkney, the Rose Soul of Britain.
The Shamanic wisdom of the Orkney Isles is a documentary-style book, containing elements of prose, fiction and exercises for people to absorb these energies, no matter where they are in the world.
The Orkney energies are part of the Gaia Method system but can be taught separately after the first Gaia method Attunement. The Gaia Method System is like a be-jewelled spider, sitting in the centre of the web. Lines of silk extend out from the centre, each one connected to the others, but all going in a different direction. All are connected but are separate paths of development. There are multiple paths available, depending on which path the student chooses.
That cleared up the confusion about how the Gaia Method had so many potential paths!
The first chapter then followed:
“Take a trip with us, back to the past; a past of life and of gaiety, of joy and travail, of death and of rebirth. Join us, around the circle of Time so that when you read these words you are transported back, back and back – to where our world began. Take the first step now, as we guide you along long-forgotten roads, through swamp and desert, dune and sand. Trip with us on the wild shores where people of the past still live, unseen by you, the forgotten people of Skara Brae.
Watch us, as we sit beside our fires, roasting our pigs, skinning our sheep and tanning their hides. Join us, as we celebrate the fire festivals, the marriages, the ceremonies of Light and Life. Sit with us while we watch the dawns rise through our circles of stones, as we watch our children grow and our animals thrive. Watch us as we watch you, floundering through lack of connection.
The fires burn brightly in our lives, and in our lands and so we come to you now, to offer our wisdom and our knowledge, so you can connect to our hearths and to our lives. Sit quietly as we gather our spirits together and blend them with yours.
Soften your eyes and move inwards, into your inner consciousness, your inner world. You are sitting beside a large central fire in a building made of stone and clods of soil. The only light is the warm light of the flames as they dance on the walls and ceiling of the sacred hut. The Elders are there too, seated around the fire. They are the Elder Women of the tribes, the Mothers. Today you join with them in celebration of life. See their faces, the fire-light glowing on their faces, their hands and their ivory and shell jewellery.
A low hum begins as the women begin to ‘sound’ the sacred notes of harmony and peace. You hear them as they blend and weave, growing softer, then louder, then softer again, until your own energy joins with the sounds. Like a sea current, it flows, moving ever onwards and through.
Outside, you can see, through the open doorway, the sun rising. You feel filled with the love that the Father has for the mother. Her heart-song fills you as you sway gently from side-to-side, your entire body filled with light and the joy of sacred union. The Father caresses the body of the Mother with his body of light until she is filled with his vitality and essence.
The humming stops and all is still, peaceful. The light has arisen. Feel the energies of this Union as it fills you with light. Feel yourself inspired, connected, enlivened. Stay with these feelings until you are ready to open your eyes.
You have begun the sacred journey of Divine Union and the Path of Rainbow light. We are all children in this world, the children of Mother Earth and Father Sun, and so we spend each morning absorbing their gifts so we may go out amongst the people and share it with them.
With gratitude in our hearts, that you have gifted us with your permission to become a participant in this sacred journey of re-connection, we bid you farewell.”
