Nemnach – Hill of Tara – Ireland
The site of this water collection is from a well called Nemnach (same root as nemeton, a sacred space of ancient Celtic times) at south foot of the Hill Tara – a truly pagan spring in a clump of whitethorn. Reputed to be the site of a Sídh-mound and also the place where Cormaic Mac Airt, king of Tara, had the first water mill inbuilt for Ciarnait. From it flows a stream called Níth (possibly from Sanskrit, ‘washed, purified’) which feeds into the Gabhra river which in turn feeds the River Boyne.
This water as an essence is the embodiment of fertility, not only in the sense of conception but also it’s the ability to enhance inner vitality in it’s deep elemental connection to the land and waters. It is a water essence of creativity which allows one to enter into sacred inner flow while remaining solidly rooted in the body, on this earth. This remedy brings the deep acknowledgment of the ancestors who have lived and breathed upon the land and all the elements the land supports.
This essence activates a pathway into the unfathomable depth of water’s wisdom, as well as the spirits of the land, which can ignite and inspire an abundance of innovativeness, originality, and expressiveness.
The colour green is associated with this essence, an essence of the heart. The earth gives forth life, your body gives forth new beginnings, filled with the energy of a calm loving heart, allowing your body to be in complete harmony with the earth.
There is a connection to the faerie realm through these waters.

Cronan’s well/ Tobar Chronain – Burren, Ireland.

The small ruin of Temple Cronan Church, nestled in a hollow in this dramatic Burren landscape, is steeped in history. The site of a 12th-century monastic oratory, it is believed that there were much earlier buildings here, and there may have been a pagan temple in antiquity.

The waters in the well are extremely sensitive, a universal and harmonious concord of all possibilities.
Water is natures sense organ and as Theodor Schwenk states in Sensitive Chaos, ‘The formative boundary surfaces in flowing movement prove to be areas of sensitivity. They respond to the slightest changes in their surroundings by expanding and contracting or making rhythmical waves. Water creates an infinite variety of these surfaces and is therefore not merely an inert mass, as we usually think. It is interwoven countless sensitive membranes that are prepared to perceive everything taking place in the surroundings, Water is not enclosed within its inner surfaces but open to its surroundings and to all the stimuli and formative impulses from without.’
This essence is full of ancient knowledge and connection, it is for those with a strong resistance to change particularly when it comes to living from a place of awareness over effort, the heart over the head. It works with a perception of lack within one’s thoughts and allows one to flow more peacefully. It releases tensions held deep within the emotional body.

This essence is about listening, silence and everything that an exhale allows; a letting go, particularly of judgment and control. This essence is very helpful when holding space for other people or the landscape without trying to have any influence over the outcome. When we hold space for others, we can open our hearts, offer unconditional support, and let go of judgment and control. This essence is for those who prefer protected safe places that you can control wherever possible. This means that you generally don’t like people coming over uninvited, and that you have firm internal rules about what is a safe place, and what isn’t. Your idea of safety can be quite stringent compared to that of others, and is often anchored more to protected places, than to certain people. In addition, you will regularly seek out seclusion in order to find nourishment, wisdom or energy. Conditions are optimum when your safe place is also a space where you are guaranteed seclusion. The essence which is best worn around your neck when needed for long periods, allows for this feeling of safe space to be with you in the more trying times.
