Preseli Blue stone (sometimes called Stonehenge Bluestone) has only recently come to the market as a healing stone. This stone, which is a spotted dolerite mineral composed of Feldspar with Augite amongst other things, comes from the same region as that from which the massive inner circle of monoliths of Stonehenge were removed. It is said that only true Bluestone (also known as Starstone) that is taken from a specific site within the Preselis has the same energies as the mineral used to create the Stonehenge monoliths: this material should have within it many tiny white/creamy-white "starbursts" or spots of material, which are what give it its special resonance with the Cosmos. We have however visited the area and "sat" with many of the dolerite rocks both within the ground and lying above ground, both "with" and "without" starbursts, and feel that enough of the special resonance that marks this out as a "sacred" place exists within much of the material from all around the vicinity of the quarrying site.
Interestingly, although this stone has the reputation of being a Dreamstone, or of being an access point to the Cosmos we have found that it carries a deep and resonantly Earthy energy. When sitting with them individually we have found them to be very useful at accessing the Earth's energy matrix and connecting to her "heartbeat", perhaps through toning and sound, as they each seem to carry a recognisable "tone" that is quite unique. We have found that people that pick them up either love them or feel nothing much from them. However all agree that they feel very grounding yet some also report getting a simultaneous sense of "opening" in the upper energy centres, creating a rather weird sense of being energetically "stretched". What we then discovered is that when they are used in layouts or arrays a quite different thing seems to occur: Encouraged by Guides, I sat in the centre of a circle of 6 of these tumbled Bluestones, whilst holding one other. For me this created a very stable "void" space, where time, space and dimension appeared to become suspended whilst I was in a very still place that seemed to resonate with timeless and profound potentials. Another time I sat in Unified State within a circle of 7 of these tumbled stones, whilst holding a tumbled white (snow) quartz at my centre. This created a great sense of opening through 360 degrees, as if my hearing and senses were becoming super-sensitive, feeling rather as if I was becoming a transmitter/receiver of impulses and information to/from the Cosmos. This would seem to support the theory that the Stonehenge Bluestones were not merely astrological measures, but one of Earth's ancient means of communicating with the Galaxy and the Universe that exists around us. I certainly feel these seemingly rather unprepossessing stones have much to offer those whose world extends beyond that of Earth and the here and now.
