Spiritual experiences during the Bornholm-Stonehenge-Italy triangulation Spiral, June 21st, 2011
by Yoga and Tantra Teacher Adina Stoian, Natha Yoga Centre (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Having become a tradition of the Natha Yoga School, the yoga camp in Bornholm includes the spiritual manifestations performed during the summer solstice, when our spiritual guide Grieg supports two special meditations: one is done exactly at sunrise and the other at the precise moment marking the beginning of the astronomic summer.
About the Summer Solstice – Legends and Subtle Resonances
This special astral moment marks the manifestation at maximum instensity of the solar, yang, masculine energies – which are in resonance with the ability to objectify and bring into awareness, the power of self-control, lucidity, solarity, will power and the perception of the self-conscious and transcendent aspect of each being.
Linguistically, solstice literally means the moment when the sun stops. For common people, the solstice is that day of the year when, at noon, the sun is at the highest point on the sky (culmination). After this day, the sun begins to descend in its apparent journey on the sky (so that at noon, when it reaches the highest point in that day, it will be yet less high than in the moment of the solstice. Therefore, we can say that its apparent position is diminishing). The more we go towards the geographic North Pole, the lower is the apparent movement of the sun in the sky, and therefore, also the height it rises to at noon. In this way, we can say that the summer solstice is also the day when the Sun is present for us the most, as it is the longest day (and implicitly, the shortest night) in the northern hemisphere.
The subtle resonances of the moment of solstice are mainly connected with the manifestation of a subtle field of maximum solarity, deeply vitalizing and regenerating, in which the individual aspirations, self-determination and will power reach a peak point, being strongly supported by the solar energies. But, according to the law of polarity (where there is a „plus pole”, there is also a corresponding „minus pole”), during the summer solstice, from the astrological point of view, begins the zodiac sign of Cancer, governed by the Moon. This combination – Sun at culmination, but in the water sign dominated by the Moon, brings the manifestation of the cosmic game between fire and water. These two elements together, strongly empowering each other, lead to the forceful manifestation of dynamic vitality, overflowing fertility, exceptional creativity, fiery and accomplishing imagination, soul depth and power.
Midsummer (connected with the Solstice) was always celebrated during fertility festivals and celebrations of the merging complementary, masculine and feminine forces. This is proved through the presence of both elements: big fires lit for celebrating the longest day of the year, as well as the sanctifying of waters and faith in their magic power, which then became obvious, and with which people could interact during the solstice. Though it was a celebration consecrated to the Sun in its complete power, the summer solstice was also an occasion for the magic water to come back among people. Swimming in lakes or rivers had a healing effect, representing also a rebirth ritual. In some places, bathing in the dew collected on solstice eve was a beautifying magical practice. In other places, bathing in the water in which, during the solstice night, healing herbs were macerated, representing a cure for regaining health and strength. In ancient traditions, the solstice night was specific to festivals of fire and the magic of love, to oracles of love and to divination (motivated by people’s desire to know their destiny). It was believed that the fields crops will grow to the height lovers reached when they jumped over the fire in their games during that night. Through the magic powers of fire, girls could foretell about their future husbands. In the same way, demons and evil spirits were cast away. Another symbolic function of the fires lit that night was to stimulate the sun’s energy (the supreme fire element), so that it stayed strong for the rest of summer, ensuring rich crops, ripened through its charmed energy.
People also bathed in rivers and springs with the belief that the water which became alive during solstice would purify them from all dirt, would make them imune to illnesses, would separate them from the past and would prepare them for the future.
Therefore, the summer solstice was and is a time for purifying through the sacred water and subtle fire, a time when magic practices and beneficial rituals become potent and the spirits of the earth and sky walk among people and show themselves to those with merits.
In ancient beliefs it is said that rich golden treasures (another element resonating with fire) can be found, because at midsummer’s eve, magic flames appear above the place where they are buried. Fairies and women with supernatural powers, obtained due to their special communion with the forces of nature, manifest at summer solstice stronger than at any other time of the year.
In the older days, in our villages, fires lit in peoples yards cast away evil spirits that could contaminate the waters of the fountains. Torches were carried over the fields, with the purpose of removing illnesses from the crops; cattle were forced to walk through fire in order to cast away from them vampire like creatures that could harm them and which were believed to nest between their horns. Firey wheels, representing the sun, were spun down the hills in order to sustain and impel the power of the sun. Big fires were lit at crossroads or on the shores of lakes and ponds in order to purify and cast away any negative entities which were believed to be unable to resist the purifying power of fire during the day of the solstice.
Beyond ancient beliefs, from the subtle point of view, at midsummer the healing energies that impregnate healing herbs manifest fully, making them efficient for the entire year that will follow. And so does the energy of abundance which later on will manifest as prosperous crops. The energy of the summer solstice is considered to be an energy of passion, vitality, creativity and prosperity. In the ancient times there was the belief that the magic practices during the summer solstice had the power to materialize apparently impossible desires and aspirations.
The inspiration to make the solstice meditations in a special way
Celebrating the solstice is an ancient spiritual tradition, present in all religions and cultures under different forms and it had represented a peak event in the celtic tradition. Therefore, even nowadays, more than 40,000 people gather together at Stonehenge in order to re-evoke the ancient ceremonies, aspiring to re-live the magic of those sacred rituals. To benefit from this synchronization of many human beings with the special moment of sunrise in the day of the solstice, the yogi collegues from Tara Yoga Centre in England were the first ones who had the intuition to organise a spiral meditation for resonating with the energies specific to the sunrise in the day of the solstice at the Stonehenge site (which is open to public and one can enter the circle of force only on this day of the year!).
In 2007, our school (Natha) organised an initiatic journey to Iceland, together with a group of yogis, with the wish to amplify the resonance with the spirits of nature (gnomes and fairies) which manifest in a very special way in that place. By synchronicity, the journey took place exactly during midsummer! Then we got the idea to synchronize with the meditations from Stonehenge and we were inspired to organize these triangulation meditations. Therefore, we searched for the third point of the equilateral triangle formed between Iceland, England and, as an exceptional integration, this was in Finland. As a high peak of the entire integration, our collegues from Finland also had a summer camp at the same time and they aimed to find the exact point that formed the equilateral triangle, which was in a forest, on the sea shore, and they could organise their camp there!
In this way, the three groups of yogis, forming yang spirals, made a perfectly equilateral triangle (the precision of the measurements, helped by complicated geospatial programs, was amazing, giving an error of less then 5 m on a distance of 2500km)! Thus, the occult initiation in the mysteries of triangulation meditation could be integrated!
This is how this tradition with exceptional results for the participants started and it continues to this day.
This is the fifth year when we celebrate the Solstice in this way, making the two meditations indicated by Grieg in spirals formed by yogis, placed in triangulation on the globe, at very big distances.
After 2007, there were more triangulations between Stonehenge and corresponding points in France and Germany, and in the last 3 years the triangulations were performed between Stonehenge, Bornholm and the corresponding point of the equilateral triangle which was measured to be somewhere closed to Bologna, in Italy.
Bornholm is a famous island, called „magic”, belonging to Denmark, a kind of a danish Avalon, where the belief in the spirits of nature is still alive, where traces of the same culture of megaliths placed on specific points of intensity of the terestrial telluric field are still found. These are formations similar to the circle of power from Stonehenge and the famous round churches belonging to early Merovingien’s esoteric christian tradition.
The triangulation between the 3 yogi spirals (from England, Denmark and Italy) implies two active points which project the energies circulated by the meditation towards the third point, which is passive, receives them and then it impregnates them in the entire subtle network of the planet. The side of this equilateral triangle has 1950 km and the precision of the measurement is smaller then 5m!
In this way, the yogis from Bornholm and Italy projected the energy towards the Stonehenge spiral, which is a focus of power unanimously recognized as one of the active planetary axis.
Meditating in this way in triangulation, the subtle effects of the energies attracted by resonance and supported by the spiritual guide amplify very much, due to some phenomena that imply the occult law of three and the manifestation of the so-called secret force (the fifth), which unifies, transcends and generates the four fundamental forces of the universe (gravitational force, electro-magnetical force, the force of weak interaction and that of strong interaction).
The two spiral and triangulation meditations supported by our spiritual guide, evoking the profoundly beneficial subtle energies of the moment of solstice are done in unison with the ancient beliefs in the accomplishing power of this special astral moment, by channeling the energies in order to manifest strongly the force idea: „the total anihilation of all malefic energies and the triumph of love and spirituality on planet Earth”.
Significant synchronicities and exceptional experiences that I had in Bornholm on June 21st 2011
The first spiral and triangulation meditation performed at sunrise
The morning was hectic, harsh and cloudy, with a sharp and intense wind, specific to the Danish island. I woke up before sunrise (4.00) and, already lacking sleep, I perceived abruptly the regret of leaving the soft and warm sheets and going out in the wind of the Bornholm island. But suddenly, my heart was animated by the very beautiful subtle feeling of brotherhood with all the yogi colleagues who were also awake and prepared to participate in this spiritual experience. I remembered immediately, without necessarily wanting it, how intense and transcendent was the state I felt at the spirals in Stonehenge, 2 years ago, during the English solstice camp. Shivers of anticipation were already opening my heart and the presence of our spiritual guide Grieg, who supported these activities, appeared clearly in my soul, like a subtle call towards the infinite.
I arrived at the forest where the spiral was going to take place... the atmosphere was very beautiful, the undisturbed silence of the morning, where I could clearly perceive the sleeping consciousness of the people on the island – I could almost touch the sweetness of the morning sleep they were enjoying. There were no cars passing by, there was no human movement, there was only a profound and regenerating peace, outlined by the blowing wind. The birds crossed the sky in their joyful flight and, oh, in the green foliage of the danish forest an entire concert – performed especially for us - on many tonalitites, of joyful and cheerful chirping welcomed us. The spiral was going to take place among the ageless menhirs stuck fast among the roots and rising erect towards the sky, like stone guardians. These menhirs have been in the forest from immemorial ages, marking a center of subtle force, of communion between the celestial and the teluric.
All the yogis from the camp were already there. I was deeply touched to see them full of aspiration, waiting with curiosity for what was going to happen. Some of them had started the yoga course only a few weeks earlier and they never participated in anything like this... but, above all, I could feel the vivid state of unity in spirit and brotherhood with all the other collegues from our school which were also meditating for one and a half hours, in the powerful solstice morning, in order to greet the midsummer sun with our aspiration towards God and with the desire to help the humankind!...
Meanwhile, ragged clouds were carried out at fast speed above the trees: a typical Danish phenomenon, that gives the impression that somebody is playing, quickly switching the light on and off, completely different to the temperate Romanian climate, where the clouds are rarely rushing in the sky.
So, in the shade, cold and wind, we started the initial stages of the meditation. The magnificent nuanced light of the sunrise was completely hidden by the thick layer of clouds.
First of all, we evoked the other groups of yogis from the spirals at Stonehenge and Italy. My heart was already jumping with the joy of being in unison. As soon as we started the evocation, the series of magic manifestations started. Nature became active, as if wanting to actually participate in our meditation. When we finished the first uttering, the wind suddenly intensified, blowing a strong gust upon the forest leafage, which quivered in response to the communion.
Then we evoked the Danish national soul, correlated also with this especially chosen place in the respective forest, where menhirs from the dawn of humanity have been silently guarding the magic access gates to other subtle parallel realities. As soon as we finished the respective uttering, a powerful sudden rain blast came upon the forest! It was so instant and unexpected that the participants started laughing – what else would better fit the Danish egregor then rain? The rain lasted for exactly 3 minutes, until we started the next invocation – the invocation of our spiritual guide Grieg, in order to tune in to his support. At that moment, a break in the heavy clouds let the sun shine brightly, rising in its magnificent splendour! Synchronistically, the sun beams found their way under the tree branches, bringing a wonderful light upon the entire spiral. The sun was shining intensely in my face, through my closed eyes the light entered my being and I felt a profound state of communion with the gigantic and mysterious nature that vibrated in unison with our master’s support! I suddenly perceived myself as being very tall, straight and thin – like a crystal pole, an antenna between the earth and the sky. Without intention, tears of joy were springing to my eyes at the perception of this manifestation of grace and I continued with consecrating the meditation and activating intensely the force idea of anihilating all the malefic forces and the triumph of spirituality and love on this planet.
The meditation started; I felt a state of clarity and purity of the consciousness that are difficult to describe in words. On this background, new aspects appeared as an unshakable reality, even if many things were unexplainable in a rational and discursive way. Nonetheless, they were clear to the smallest detail – bright as daylight. My spiritual intuition told me they are „images” from the supramental, clarifying what I was feeling into a new, superior and synthetic knowledge. In this way, among other things, I remembered with amazement the state of subtle communion along the force lines of the triangle formed by the three groups which were meditating in unison at that moment, forming a kind of „tool” for transforming consciousnesses, without knowing how this will actually happen. I only had the intuition of a huge responsibility of that action (which was working intensely for accomplishing the purpose to which it was consecrated). Another aspect that was outlined then was the way the energies of the Danish group appeared like force vectors oriented towards Stonehenge, where they united with the ones coming from the Italian group. It was as if I could see these huge arrows of consciouness accumulating subtly in the sacred circle of the stones in England and from there, following thin lines of channeling the teluric energies, they divided into a regular network in the being of the entire planet, purifying its aura, energizing and uplifting it. Another aspect I perceived then was a special state of sacredness and fusion with the energies of nature, which were very subtle and refined in that Bornholm forest. I felt the tree spirits (some very tall and very old) waking up to life and orienting their attention towards us, surprised and enchanted by this bath of magic energy, into which the spiral was harmoniously ascending. Next to them I perceived certain very old entities – like some giants of condensed time, dust of the centuries and millenia alchemized into pure energy, the direct experience of becoming and transience. In a mysterious way, they were associated with the erect stone menhirs from the forest, which time had forgotten and had left them whole, just like ancestors of life itself. The clear intuition I had was that the raw stone of the menhirs represented only the shadow of the visible body, but the conscisousness in the subtle level was like a huge antenna through which the subtle energy circulated freely, an intense flow rising from them to the infinite blue sky, piercing the whirl of clouds that were rushing in ephemeral rags all the way beyond the moon, beyond the planets of the solar system, towards the vast and vivid universe... Simultaneously, I became aware of the importance of the chosen astronomic and astrological moment – the solstice, the maximum of light of the year. It seemed that this facilitated the energetic „reception” and „transmission” towards very far away areas of the Macrocosm, because the necessary subtle conditions were fulfilled, especially the temporal ones related to certain mysterious cycles.
I entered a kind of supramental communion with these entities – time giants – which seem to transfer knowledge and experience into my „inner” computer, but the transfer speed was super fast and the inscribing of the highly encoded data made it almost impossible for my mind to translate into an intelligible language what was going on! It seemed as if that transferred energy was destined to modify the planetary level of consciousness (and, implicitly, to the consecrated goal of these triangulation meditations). In this direction, I was a simple tool – willing, but not unique nor special, used for this purpose. The state of natural and profound mystery was so intense that my entire being was full of enchantment and amazement. I contemplated this fascinating and magic game of knowledge and energy during the 90 minutes of the meditation. At a certain point, the music stopped. I opened the eyes and I saw the technical guy rolling a cable and I was sure he was going to change the power generator in order to continue. So, I closed the eyes, continuing to savor the effects of the meditation. A few more minutes passed until somebody whispered in my ear that in fact the music stopped because the time for the meditation had finished. For me, it seemed like maximum 20 minutes had passed. My body did not feel the tiredness of standing still, my fingers were not numb – the intensity of the experiences made possible my transfer into a dimension in which human time flow did not touch me...
Being highly impressed by this yang spiral meditation, I decided to stay a bit longer, in order to become aware of the effects. I told my friends to go to the villa where we kept the activities and I sat down, supporting my back against one of the mehirs. In the wonderful minutes that followed, I felt very clearly two things: first of all, an overwhelming state of intense joy for having participated in that experience and having brought my humble share, as a relay for the circulated energy. And secondly, the fact that this manifestation (which had been telepathically supported by Grieg) ended because he ended the activity. I felt so clearly as if the „cosmic concert” ended because the conductor ended it and I felt the savor of having participated in it, as well the difference of states, between how it felt when the „celestial music” overflowed in waves supported by Grieg and how it was when this did not happen anymore. In this way, I understood once more the significance of this subtle support of an action by a being with a perfectly awakened consciosuness, as our beloved spiritual guide is.
The second spiral triangulation meditation done at the solstice astronomic moment (at 17 o’clock)
After such an overwhelming experience at the sunrise, I was looking forward for the afternoon, in order to savor once more the triangulation spiral. But, as it is often the case, the effects were not as clear as in the morning. 20% was clouded by my own inability to clearly connect to the subtle manifested energies. In this way, I perceived as disturbant the noise from the nearby street, the presence of some people passing by through the woods, even my own thoughts, that were having expectations... I needed more then half an hour to focus inside and to participate actively. I became aware about this by evoking Grieg’s subtle guidance. I identified with him, as if my being was enliven by his consciousness, which I invited to manifest freely through me. It was only then that remarkable effects of fusion with cosmic, gigantic energies, with forces of nature, and, towards the end, even with the giant but so sensitive entity – the Earth, started to appear. In this meditation I perceived the presence of the forest spirits – gnomes and elves, and the telluric and airy polarity of the energies in that grove.
After the end of this activity, I came back to the camp with my heart refreshed, deeply regenerated by the stream of extremely refined and super-human energies I had gone through, with great joy in my heart and with an exuberant enthusiasm for starting the spiritual summer that was awaiting us...
