This month I went to Glastonbury with Bill (my hubby) for our annual trip. No, not the music festival, although we would love the live music, we don’t do muddy fields, wellies and camping. We usually go in the spring or autumn when it’s quiet and we always have amazing weather. This year was no exception.
We visited Chalice Well to collect more water for my ‘Aura Mist’ sprays and then spent time just sat in the garden chatting, listening to the birds and watching people walk up the Tor. Everyone we met greeted us with a smile and a kind word. This sacred place brings out the best in people. Why can’t people be like this in Tesco’s or on the M25?
After some tree hugging, we spent the rest of our time looking in the many New Age shops. Everything from books, crystals, singing bowls, meditation tools, angels, faeries, vegetarian cafes, it’s all there from the magical to the very weird and wonderful.
Bill bought me a chunk of sedimentary rock with cubes of pyrite crystals embedded in it. Who said diamonds are a girl’s best friend? Pyrite is commonly known as fool’s gold but to crystal therapists it is known as healer’s gold as it helps dissipate physical exhaustion. Something I would need after this weekend.
Seeing Steve Knightley in concert one evening was a much needed break for Bill who is a very down to earth grounded blokey bloke. He keeps my feet firmly on the ground but he also shares my love of all things alternative.
Our hotel was haunted and freezing cold but we had an amazing few days spending quality time together.
We returned to Leamington with our new books, crystals and Buddha statue for the garden feeling………. knackered!
Now where’s that pyrite cube crystal?
Love & light to you all
