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

St Cronan’s well/Tobar Chronain.

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 landscape of the Burren has been shaped by geological forces for hundreds of millions of years. The rocks that make up the Burren were all formed during the Carboniferous period between 359 and 299  million years ago.

The well is a simple spring. A large penitential cairn of unknown date is found beside the well within the enclosure.

The well is located at the base of a rock outcrop and defined by a dry-stone circular wall.

This essence brings a sense of softness and calms one, collected on the 18th of December 2018.

The overall feeling from this essence is ‘I am enough’, everything I need is already within me. This essence includes usnea lichen and water collected from the flow form in the vortex of the well. 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.

There is a huge connection to the elemental realm through this essence most likely through the symbiosis of the usnea collected, Usnea is a unique species because it is created through a symbiotic relationship between lichens and algae. Symbiosis refers to the living together of two different organisms.

This essence is helpful for those with an inability to speak which can come from depression, it is a calming gentle essence which allows your light to shine through.

It is a spinal essence for ascending energy and brings structural support to the body as well as the soil.

This water was collected while traveling with the Land Arts of the American West Program, as part of the University of NewMexico’s Art & Ecology Program. At that time the artists of Land Arts were staying with the Dine people and had the great fortune of getting to work with and learn from indigenous elders and educators.

While there, we learned of an environmental catastrophe that occurred in August 2015, when workers from the US Environmental Protection Agency mistakenly punctured a holding tank of mine tailings at the Gold King Mine in Silverton, Colorado, releasing over 3 million gallons of toxic waste into the Animas River, a tributary of the San Juan River that runs through Navajo Nation and nourishes all aspects of life. The spill greatly damaged the environment, as the released waste contained thousands of pounds of dangerous and highly toxic heavy metals.

The impact was felt deeply by the local indigenous Diné people, who not only rely on the San Juan River for drinkingand crop irrigation but also view water as a living being integral to their community and way of life. As farms went fallow and losses accrued on the Navajo Nation, their very spiritual belief system and world view were compromised because they were not able to use water from the river.

Glenade Equinoxes Water Orb – Ireland.
Glenade Equinoxes Water Orb – Ireland.

Equinoxes occur when the sun crosses the celestial equator in its seasonal migration. This occurs twice a year. The Vernal equinox is in late March and the Autumnal one is in late September. This essence has been made from waters of both equinoxes. A balance of dark and light. This essence is deeply linked to the Dobharchu story and the darkness we can feel around death and depression. There is a transformation within this remedy however almost like a shapeshifter. One must be wary of the darkness that balances our light but we cannot be light without the dark. This essence helps with the inner transformation and shift of the darkness into light. It can help to lift the grief for lost places of your past, a place that you cannot return to, a place that perhaps never was.

It brings new meaning to a place that would have become stagnated in inertia. These remembered local landscapes, the waters, are the messengers of the excluded and perhaps the forgotten. This essence brings a hope for a better tomorrow, transferred through this process of serial dilution to release aspects of space and time.

Collection point: Glenade lake, Leitrim, Ireland

Latitude : 54 22′ 02”  Longitude : -8 16′ 18”

What are the consequences of not speaking out? What are the consequences of guilt, shame, and doubt? This essence is for those who feel they are not seen or heard; a deep heartache that comes from not speaking ones truth. Your silences will not protect you. This remedy helps to give a voice to that silence. The speaking will get easier and easier and you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. This essence is a helpful relief in these challenging circumstances. What is most important is that your truth must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood. The issue of “stay small, sweet, quiet, and modest” sounds like an outdated problem, but the truth is that we still run into those demands whenever we find and use our voices. There is a sense of an upward lift that comes with taking this essence: it opens the crown chakra. This is a very helpful essence when self-confidence is needed, and helps one to move forward with projects and goals. It provides a liberating feeling as we move out of old patterns of defensiveness into universal connectedness through the waters and into a pattern of endless flow.

Solar Eclipse Water Orb – Ireland.
Solar Eclipse Water Orb – Ireland.

Collection point: Glenade lake, Leitrim, Ireland

Latitude : 54 22′ 02”  Longitude : -8 16′ 18”

 

Water as mediators between Earth and Cosmos. On the morning of March 20, 2015, a near-total solar eclipse was visible from Ireland. Over 90% of the Sun was be obscured as the Moon passes between it and the Earth. The eclipse started at 8:24am, reached maximum eclipse at 9:28am, and finished at 10:36am. Waters were collected from Glenade Lough through the reflection of the eclipse. This essence helps one to become more aware of their spiritual path. It helps to release pain that we are holding; there can be a fear in releasing known pain and a fear of the lightness of our being. Eclipses can give
 us the benefits a reevaluation of our life and awareness to see what we might need to let go. We may experience fear, worry, tendency to complain and whine, sensitivity and hyper reaction to “injustice”. We should be aware of our own emotions and those of the others and realize that the behaviour of others might not be what they really mean. The situations we encounter around the eclipse time tempt us to react negatively, create a conflict, or argue. The best position is to be a witness. An eclipse can be considered to be a door that breaks our bond with the past. We currently use our senses to interpret nature, and not in the way I feel nature had first evolved: to act as receivers, permitting us to stand back within the presence, the potentiality for the vibrational expression of matter and to feel and receive and relish the sounds, smells, sights, tastes and touch of all that is. Anticipating the presence of an observer to engage in a co-creative dance within a transitional sea of potentiality, a potentiality that forms the core of the Earth. Although we are tiny, we feel the Universe.

Winter Solstice Water Orb – Glenade, Ireland.
Winter Solstice Water Orb – Glenade, Ireland.

There is a stillness to winter solstice, a deep exhale that allows one to contemplate the silence. 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.

Nowy Port Water Orb – Gdansk, Poland.
Nowy Port Water Orb – Gdansk, Poland.

This the vibrational essence of Nowy Port, Gdansk.

This essence is a gently comforting, lasting embrace. It creates a calm and a quiet joy.

Nowy port water essence holds the most encompassing joy. As an essence it holds you like a hug, and allows your own innate healing powers to take place, for wherever it is that you need.

Nowy Port water essence brings a lightness to your being, it is an instant pink light. It brings awareness for a need to control others. It brings an awareness that the divine feminine is coming out of us all, it is not something to strive for or be attained.

It helps to release hard heavy unforgiving thoughts and feelings. It is like being wrapped in a pink shawl made of light. It works to release militant and unloving thought forms, it shines a light on mind programs and repeated thinking of heavy thoughts, it helps your heart to become centered in a state of love. The ultraviolet wavelength works to sooth unresolved behavioral difficulties while helping the body to ease pent-up, unexpressed emotions.

This essence can help support the stressful process of moving or re-homing, and can also assist the homeless, or those who choose a lifestyle of roaming and drifting, to feel more supported, stable and connected.

Nowy Port is ideal for those who are drifting from place to place, who have no place to call home, and who feel pow­er­less to direct their lives. It heightens aware­ness of inner strength, pro­motes a sense of ­con­tent­ment with the present moment, and encour­ages peace of mind, even during times of tran­si­tion and change. The Nowy Port essence helps us create a sense of being at home any­where on the planet by helping us master the qual­i­ties of flex­i­bility and adap­ta­tion. It is through an aware­ness and accep­tance of the per­fec­tion of each present moment that we are able to access the sup­port and energy we need, wher­ever we are, and trans­late this into strength and sta­bility in our daily lives.

It is also for those who live their lives in iso­la­tion from others, and who often feel sep­a­rate and detached from their sur­round­ings and even from the planet. This alien­ation can be the result of a dif­fi­cult birth or a weak connection with the birth mother which led to a lack of nur­turing during early child­hood. It can help people who have lost their homes for financial reasons, or due to cat­a­strophic events, reclaim their inner sense of belonging and their con­nec­tion with the planet. This will make it easier for them to find a new place to live or re-inhabit their existing home after the damage has been repaired.

Water Senses Publication
Water Senses Publication

Water Senses is a boxed publication by artist Ruth Le Gear which contains a unique water remedy, booklet, series of postcards and a map. First edition print of 100.

My practice involves an engagement and meditation with the landscape, through the creation of water remedies. This work has emerged from the outcomes of research, collaboration and fieldwork based around water and its memories held within Glenade Lough; listening to the mystical, mythical and metaphysical forces that act upon and interact with water on Earth.
My intention was to convey a narrative from the waters perspective. I distilled this ephemeral environment through the creation of water remedies made from the Lough. The Lough has many stories that are layered upon it and are held within the valley that is known as the Jealous Valley. Myth is power of the place speaking. I made a series of water remedies from the Lough, which holds the energy of all the people that the water has encountered, the last brown bears of Ireland, the story of the dobhar-chú and so much more.

My process involves serial dilutions with water, which form tiny poetic time machines where each individual water sample is explored to see what is held within. These explorations are translated into moving image, photography and the remedies for the water as well as for the land and then people. This is my process, and over the last number of years I have been working with the waters of Glenade and creating water remedies from the Lough.

Water seems ordinary. It is everywhere, in our bodies, in the lakes, rivers and the sea, and falling from the sky, which happens quite a lot in North Leitrim. It can slip through our fingers yet hold up a boat. It is a profoundly underrated substance.

I wish to take you on a journey to become part of the water, to listen to the whispers of stories yet untold from this place. My first journey was a physical one on an expedition to the Arctic where the power and importance of water is vastly apparent in the sublime landscape, and which I had to continually remind myself was real. It was manifested in the great glaciers, icebergs and seas of the Arctic. These unmapped spaces simulate spiritual sublimities. My second journey is one within the waters of Glenade Lough in North Leitrim, one of Ireland’s oldest glacial lakes.
