I looked at the landscape, earth upturned. The hill was lush green, despite it being a barren season. Between me and the hill were standing in the freshly ploughed soil, three immense diamond shaped figures. They were made of thick slabs of forged iron. They gave me a sense of strength, of solid femininity, of everything is as it is supposed to be and they oozed ancient Mother energy, loving, whole and caring.

Upon waking up I sketched my dream image. Since then the image of the diamond shapes turns up occasionly when I work with women. The Three Diamonds point to their ‘inner Mother’, their femininity, care and love for themselves, just as they are, strengthening their positive self-image. A week ago or so, I visited a facebook page and saw this:

http://www.sustrust.co.ukAlthough this is not a forged iron shape, a stone must have been chisselled into this one, or at least its natural shape was enhanced. I saw this image as a Day Sign for me, to take stock where I am in my life. Where is the Mother in me, where and how do I express and live my femininity, how do I care for others and myself. How can a woman be other than this strong form, planted in the earth?

I loved the element of fire in my dream. Some big fires must have burned to make these massive shapes. Maybe men, smithies, helped the first liquid, and then solidified iron mass to take this diamond shape, this super-feminine form.

And now a man is planting a stone of similar shape in the earth. Helping the energy to ground, by restoring this ancient burial mound in Cornwall (see information below). Male energy and female energy working together, working for the bigger picture. To shape the world as we all see it individually.

This is a quote from The Sustainable Trust website: “from the Giant’s Quoit, Carwynnen near Camborne, Cornwall. This late neolithic burial chamber which collapsed in the the 1960s is now being re-built. The standing of the first upright/orthostat has just taken place – all 2 tonnes of it, assisted by Cornish cider which helped to bless and anoint it.” More information about the project is at www.sustrust.co.uk
