The Quest for the Holy Grail


This is a really beautiful post by Cnawan Fahey. I had missed it on my feed, as this has been quite a busy week, but it popped up from my dear Laura Bruno, who celebrates a birthday today – Happy Birthday Faery Sister! – as a reblog.

And I’m so glad it did. What I love most is not just the beautiful and powerfully symbolic dream that Cnawan shares about the Holy Grail, but the wonderful interpretation that he shares of it, as related to each Soul that I feel can help one to understand the strength, resiliency, and magick that is latent in the very essence of who you are.

Cnawan also shares a really insightful article by Joseph Campbell , again with interpretative take-aways that are supportive in understanding and leading an authentic life.

I hope you enjoy it.

When approaching a discussion of one’s thoughts about the Holy Grail, it’s difficult not to be a bit circumspect. What comes to mind is the experience of King Arthur and his knights in the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail; when seeking aid from a French castle in their quest for the Grail, the French taunt Arthur’s entourage, saying, “We’ve already got one!”

Assuredly, everyone has their own vision of what the Holy Grail is and what it represents.  Nevertheless, I’m going to present my concept of it, even though you’ve already got one.

Actually, my experience of the Grail comes from a dream I had several years ago. I had picked up a copy of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon and, so enthralled was I by her retelling of the legend, that I put aside all else and read the voluminous epic cover to cover in…

Moldavite ~ Sacred Gem of the Galactic Heart


Crystals and stones are each magical and unique in their own right; possessing certain properties and energies that not only resonate with each of us personally, but also resonate during certain periods of our lives when we are in need of the supportive energy they provide. Moldavite is one such extraordinary stone and one of the most powerful, which just so happens to share the same hue and vibrancy associated with the Heart Chakra and new energies of the times.

Let’s look further into some of the uniqueness of this precious stone. Moldavite is a tektite-a mysterious group of glassy objects, that is the product of a meteor collision with Earth nearly 15 million years ago (14.8 to be exact). It is believed to have fallen from the sky only once, over what is now called the Moldau River Valley in Czechoslovakia. Found only in the Czech Republic, these green gems are among the rarest minerals on Earth-perhaps rarer than diamonds, rubies, and emeralds (hence being a bit pricey). Prized by humans for thousands of years, they are still given as gifts from royalty to royalty. Stories of legend associate Moldavite with the legendary Stone of the Holy Grail, an “emerald” said to have fallen from the sky, and a talisman for the healing of the Earth and having the power to accelerate one’s inner growth and spiritual evolution. Even those not usually sensitive to the energies of stones, often feel the energy of Moldavite because it’s undeniably powerful.

Wearing, or simply holding, a piece of Moldavite can produce many interesting and instantaneous reactions and experiences including that of heat flashes and emanating heat in general, that can not only be felt by the wearer, but those around, energy jolts, and vibrations throughout the day. It’s not a power to play with though, as since it’s vibration is so high, one not used to such exposure can find themselves feeling quite drained, as your vibrational energy quickens to catch up to match it.

Moldavite is a definite and powerful Chakra opener and activator, particularly resonating with the Heart, 3rd Eye, and Crown Chakras. Although its energy tends to first move to wherever it is most needed in the physical and etheric bodies, it will settle and center in the heart.

Moldavite is a great stone to work with on a personal and collective level in your healing work, practices, and meditations. Its transformative qualities, begins a process of energetic resonance throughout one’s entire being, thus raising the vibration. There are many benefits of this stone, and exposure to it, including, activating the dream state when worn while sleeping, helping one to acclimate to the Earth plane environment if feeling not part of this world (especially in the case of Star Children), helps foster a deeper level of compassion and understanding for the human realities of the physical plane, aids in expansion of consciousness and rapid transformation in one’s life-aiding the release of those things that do not serve one’s highest path, visionary experiences, increased clarity, vibrational raising of both yourself and the Earth, energy cleansing, strengthens, aids in self discovery and enlightenment, cosmic and crystal consciousness, expansion, and even contact with interdimensional energies, and the list goes on…

It is considered the only known gemstone of “extraterrestrial” origin (not of this Earth) and is associated with the Star card of the Tarot. But most importantly, it is a direct link to the Heart Chakra. While wearing Moldavite one actively engages with the heart and it helps to return that beautiful pink glow to your aura that is associated with unconditional love. Definitely a stone that helps us to get in touch with that lovely pink (or green) resonance of the heart. Wow! What a little powerhouse of multiplicity. No wonder it can at first sometimes intimidate those not aware of its energy. It’s fully packed with releasing and relinquishing energy that one surely needs to be ready for. Although, by inviting one such lovely piece into your life, is already mirroring that on some level you’ve chosen to be ready. It is definitely a celestial “stone of transformation.” Yet, not all stones are for everyone.

You will know if Moldavite is for you either in resonating with what you are reading here, or on instant contact with one. Isn’t it wonderful that like with all things, there’s a multitude of choices out there for everyone to find what truly resonates with them? But if you find yourself ready for one of these beauties, enjoy! You will find a lasting friend you’ll want to take along for the journey.

SOME HINTS:

It might be helpful to mentally prepare, when deciding to wear your Moldavite and you can also help to ground yourself as well by pairing it with other stones such as black tourmaline, smoky quartz, hematite, tiger eye, or whatever stone resonates grounding effects for you. Moldavite harmonizes well with such stones as quartz, amethyst, rose quartz, citrine, tanzanite, larimar, sugililte, and dozens more. It tends to supercharge the energies of whatever stones you pair it with. Or you can go cold turkey, wearing it alone as you say, “Bring it on!”

The stone can be purchased both in its natural beauty as a raw, amorphous stone, or as a cut and polished stone. Faceted Moldavites, some say, can have an intensified energy that is created by the cutting process. And if cut into geometric shapes it can also act as a type of laser. But again, it all depends on you and your intentions and the way the energy of the stone blends with your own. Whatever shape and type resonates with you, is the perfect choice always and will produce exactly the results you are looking for and needing. Like with anything, follow your intuition and heart. Higher prices don’t denote personal fulfillment.
