Dolmen, fairies, and fertility in Brittany
While driving in Brittany, France last December, I decided to research places that were aligned to the Winter Solstice. As luck would have it, we were minutes away from La Roche aux Fées, a dolmen aligned with the winter solstice just outside of Rennes. It is one of the most famous and largest Neolithic passage tombs in Brittany, dating back to around 3000 to 2500 BC.
La Roche aux Fées is easily the biggest dolmen I have ever seen. There are around 40 huge stones that make up the corridor and the heaviest one weighs around 45 tons. As you can see in the photo, I am pretty small compared to the size of these stones.
The name La Roche aux Fées means the Fairies Rock.
Legend has it that the stones were placed by fairies, and really, think about it, how else could those huge stones have gotten there!? Maybe the fairies knew something we don’t know.
But how the stones got there is a question for another day, what I am really interested in is what kind of energy will I find exploring this stone structure. What motivated the Neolithic people to build this immense dolmen?
To discover what energies are present at a sacred site, I use my body as dowsing instrument. Our bodies are incredibly sensitive to subtle energies and once trained can quickly distinguish water veins, faults and other earth energies present at sacred sites.
Usually, sacred sites are built over powerful earth energy points.
These points can be subterranean water veins or faults, or a combination of both. Then there are earth vortexes that are present that usually relate to our chakra systems. My job is to identify which energies are present at each sacred site.
I love this part of my sacred geometry world.
The adventure of going to a new site and discovering the energies that make up the place is so much fun. What color is the aura of the place? Where are the most powerful places to stand and feel? Which chakras do they balance and align? And then there is the wonderful opportunity to tune up my own energy system, by standing in the healing points that are found.
La Roche aux Fées it turns out is a powerful fertility site. I helped find many water veins there and most were connected with fertility. Water in the form of springs, wells and water veins all have different qualities to them. Some waters are healing, some make you sick, and some are connected to fertility.
For example, there are hundreds of holy wells in Ireland and Brittany. They date back to pre-Christian times and many are famous for the ability to heal diseases. I’ve seen sacred wells for eyesight improvement, headaches, backaches, wounds, sprains, fertility issues and the list goes on. The point is that water can be a very powerful healing modality and there are many different types of water.
La Roche aux Fées is a very special fertility site because of the water veins it was constructed over.
I helped identified 3 different types of fertility waters! This was a first for me. Some water veins have a general feeling of fertility to their energy. Others have a distinctly feminine quality to their energy and these are the most common. Lastly, there are waters for men’s fertility, which are more rare to find. It is extremely special to find all three types in one place.
La Roche aux Fées is powerful in other ways too. The water vein configuration is very strong. There are 2 water veins running the length of the passageway. One water vein is huge and the outer sides of the stones of the passageway mark the edges of this water. The other water vein is at a different subterranean level and is smaller. Then there are five water veins running perpendicular to the corridor. This is where we found the fertility water vein for men and fertility water vein for women.
Inside there are some nice places to enjoy an energy tune-up in this magnificent dolmen.
Starting at the back of the passage tomb roughly in the center is a big earth chakra vortex that is a fertility point. This means you will feel the energy in your second chakra. It feels warm, soft, and juicy and has a sexy vibe. The energy of this particular point also rises up to the 4th chakra and opens the heart. Many megalithic fertility sites have this sexy 2nd chakra energy combined with the heart opening energy of the 4th chakra. It is one of my favorite fertility energy combinations to experience.
To best feel powerful points at sacred sites, it is good to spend a few minutes standing on the point to allow the energy to rise up your central channel.
Try to clear your mind and be in a neutral mental state. Then stay open to what kind of energy shows up for you. Sometimes the energy is very subtle and other times it can be very strong. Pay attention to any sensations in your body, these are your clues.
There are 2 more places to enjoy a nice energy tune-up inside the passage tomb. As you walk forward to the entrance from the back, there are 2 rooms on the right-hand side. Try standing in the center of each to feel more second chakra and fertility energy.
Overall La Roche aux Fées is a fantastic place to open, balance, and align the second chakra.
Its aura is orange corresponding to the fertility energy present everywhere. It is a perfect place to learn how the 2nd chakra energy feels in your body. The massive size of the dolmen combined with all the water veins, specifically the fertility waters make it a great place to learn how to feel in your body the sexy energy of this Neolithic or shall we say fairy built sacred site. Who knew the fairies were so interested in fertility and sex?
To learn more about how to body dowse at sacred sites like I do in my Sacred Geometry World, check out Boulder Centre for Master Builder’s Secrets of Sacred Geometry Certification starting in the USA September 2018. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to study with Sacred Geometry and earth energy expert Dominique Susani. A big part of the training is learning how to feel all the energies I described in this blog in your body.
I’d love to hear your experiences at dolmen and any encounters with the Fae folk, so leave me a comment.
