Off working doing Past Life Regressions in Anglesey, North Wales, this weekend, also known as Mona, my first visit, and I am so excited about it.
Anglesey is famous for being where the Druids took their final stand against the Romans almost two thousand years ago. The Roman historian Tacitus wrote this about it. This was his report on the first invasion in 60AD:
“Britain was in the hands of Suetonius Paulinus who prepared to attack the island of Mona which had a powerful population and was a refuge for fugitives. He built flat-bottomed vessels to cope with the shallows, and uncertain depths of the sea. Thus the infantry crossed, while the cavalry followed by fording, or, where the water was deep, swam by the side of their horses.
On the shore stood the opposing army with its dense array of armed warriors, while between the ranks dashed women, in black funereal attire like the Furies, with hair dishevelled, waving burning sticks. All around, the Druids, lifting up their hands to heaven, and pouring forth dreadful imprecations, scared our soldiers by the unfamiliar sight, so that, as if their limbs were paralysed, they stood motionless, and exposed to wounds.
Then urged by their general’s appeals and mutual encouragements not to quail before a troop of frenzied women, they bore the standards onwards, smote down all resistance, and wrapped the foe in the flames of his own burning sticks. A force was next set over the conquered, and their groves, devoted to inhuman superstitions, were destroyed. They deemed it indeed a duty to cover their altars with the blood of captives and to consult their deities through human entrails.”
The island is steeped in history, sacrifice, blood and beauty – fertile material for a Past Life Regression. I also firmly believe in Animism, that landscapes and buildings hold memories and emotions, so cannot wait to soak it all in.
