I’ve been having a most interesting and enlightening time, lately, since my discovery of certain natural laws and how they resonate throughout the mind-body-spirit continuum. So I’d like to share some of that information with you here because, for me, it’s been something of a game changer in my spiritual practice, and you might like to try it in your own meditations.
Some of you will be familiar with my shamanic work around reclaiming sovereignty. But you may not know that during the Second World War, the magician Dion Fortune was also working to maintain Britain’s sovereignty by using spiritual measures to help protect the nation from Nazi invasion. Her methodology is laid out in a series of letters that she sent out to her group of fellow meditators, which have been collated and published in a book titled The Magical Battle of Britain.
It was in that book that I came across an extremely powerful meditation symbol which, if it’s not actually God or Goddess, certainly reveals the extraordinary mind of the creator. And by understanding and meditating on this symbol, one is put in touch and in alignment, in body, mind and spirit, with the mind of the God. This is my experience anyway.
So let me start at the beginning …
During the years of World War Two, Dion’s students would do a group meditation, wherever they were in the world, at around midday, every Sunday. And they would visualise a multi-coloured Rose at the centre of a golden Celtic cross which would be hanging in a chamber within Glastonbury Tor. This is known to some as the Rosy Cross.
When I first visualised it, almost by accident because I had been just trying to memorise the orders of the colours, it began to appear quickly and for me, it was quite painful. It gave me a horrible headache. I have experienced powerful symbols before and so I’m not unfamiliar with the vibrational impact they can have on the physical body, but usually they are more comfortable than this one. It really did hurt. So I realised that I had to get my own frequencies more in tune with it – after all, the mountain was not going to come to Mohammed! – and painting it seemed to be a good way to do this because the colours are frequencies in themselves.
Here’s my (very amateur) painting of Dion Fortune’s Rosy Cross, placed at the centre of the golden Celtic Cross.
I make sure that I have my usual psychic protection in place now before visualising it and I find that a good way is to tune into the heart first. I use the Ecstasy of the Heart meditation for this, which you can find at the beginning of Part II of my book, The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar. I would also recommend not journeying into Glastonbury Tor unless you are accompanied by your spirit guides. You can do this meditation without leaving your sofa, so long as you have set up your sacred space.
So what’s it like?
The first time I managed to stand in front of the Rosy Cross comfortably, in a shamanic trance-like state, I felt this head-spinning sort of confusion about what to ask it, what to do with it? In the end, a question managed to spurt itself out, almost in a Tourettes-kind of spasm: “Who does the Rosy Cross serve?”. In the back of my mind was the concern that I didn’t want to be messing around with one of “their” unholy devices! In answer, the Rose almost flashed at me and went translucent – as if it was activating – and the answer that came into my head was an image of a mountain stream, and the realisation that the water in the stream is there for whoever wants to drink it. Of course, if people aren’t told about the stream, and are kept away from it , then they die of thirst.
So what is this knowledge that has been hidden from us?
Now, there are lots of theories about what the Rose at the centre of the Celtic cross means – but they all fall into the dust once you understand that the whole of creation is based on vibrational beats – sometimes known as Om or the primordial vibration. How those beats are arranged, and in what order, determine the nature of the material form of creation. So once you understand those beats, those numbers, and you know that they are creating the crystalline structure of your mind-body-spirit, then you understand the creator and you can dance, like the Nataraja, the Lord of the Dance, to the creator’s tune.
The Rosy Cross is a device that not only carries the numbers of the universe, but it also carries the properties of those numbers in its very being – by which I mean, it is alive.
Of course, Dion Fortune didn’t invent it – I think it may have been known to alchemists and magicians for thousands of years, going back to the ancient Egyptians at least. It could also be the Rose and Cross of the 17th century secret society known as the Rosicrucians, and in the 19th and 20th century it was promoted by the esoteric group, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, of which Dion Fortune had been a member.
But I learned about the importance and divine meaning of the Celtic Cross from two places.
Firstly, in a book by Peter Plichta called God’s Secret Formula: Deciphering the Riddle of the Universe and the Prime Number Code.
And secondly, from Mark Cocking, who is well known for his online talks about numbers and their importance in the grand scheme of things – both exoteric and esoteric. In this video, he’s managed to distil the information contained in Plichta’s book, and much more besides, into a very good and easy-to-understand two-hour presentation.
So from those sources, I managed to glean that the Celtic Cross represents the only way you can get prime numbers into any kind of meaningful pattern, and that is to place them in order around successive 24-hour clocks. If you do this, you end up with eight rays, or four sets of two rays, which form themselves into a Celtic cross.
The ancient Egyptians knew this, but unfortunately not our own mathematicians of these Dark Ages, who are literally left in the dark about the repeatability of prime numbers because they can’t find a pattern by insisting on laying them out in linear fashion – when nothing in Nature runs in a straight line and pretty well everything runs in circles and cycles. But secondly, and perhaps most importantly, they remain in ignorance because they don’t understand that 1 is a prime number.
As for the multi-coloured Rose, here’s a more professionally produced picture of it.
The three petals – red, yellow, blue – of the inner layer represent the Trinity. Every religion has this tripartite godhead, for example in the form of the triple-faced Goddess of the Celts, or the Father, Son and Holy Ghost of the Christians, or Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva of the Hindus.
The next layers of seven petals represents the seven planets, and the outer layer of 12 petals represents the astrological signs. So the sum of 3 and 7 and 12 = 22, which represents the three octaves of the creation. The three octaves: 8 x 3 = 24 but are actually 22, because the top and bottom notes of the middle octave are the same.
I’ve continued to meditate on the Rosy Cross at least once a day, and I’m much more at ease with it now. I usually feel it enter into my field, almost like you would feel a person coming into the room, and there is a vibrational impact in the same way that there is with a Vedic mantra – which is just another way of dancing with God! Then there follows a transmission of information that cannot be put into words, but that feels immensely satisfying and fulfilling; that’s the only way I can describe it. Sometimes there are voices, and snatched rhymes, and bits of sentences and moving pictures … but mostly, it’s just a feeling of completion and One-ness that I enjoy immensely!
Hello, I’m Annie Dieu-Le-Veut, and I write books on shamanism, Earth magic, the Grail Mysteries, Christian mysticism and sacred sexuality, which are all available on Amazon.
I also decode ancient myths to show how they are actually the vessels or arks of our ancestors sailing the seas of Time and containing, deep in their submarinal holds, precious messages about our innate holographic relationship to eternal astrological and alchemical cycles which drive each of us along our life’s path.
Once we understand the substance of the messages our ancestors left for us thousands of years ago, we can realise the value and meaning of our own human life and finally know what to do with it.
