It is my belief that many of the islands off the coast of Iceland are parts of the Atlantean continent that have drifted there, having been swept underneath the sea. These include the island of Surtsey, in the Westman Islands, that rose from the sea during the 1960’s. Certain areas of land still carry the original Atlantean vibration, and are likely to play an important role in the eventual resurrection of this energy. One of the original Atlantean crystal skulls is thought to be buried thousands of feet beneath the ice cap, Vatnajokull.
Geologically speaking, Iceland is one of the most active nations on Earth. There are minor tremors of some kind almost every day. This small island accounts for nearly a third of the total amount of volcanic lava found on Earth, as well as having 780 hot springs and 250 separate geothermal areas. Some 10% of the country is covered in lava, and a further 10% in ice. It is often referred to as The Land of Fire and Ice, and it is easy to see why.
Modern Icelanders utilise geothermal energy as a source of hot water and electricity. In Atlantis, energy was also sourced in a similar way, from thermal currents and sacred fire systems, that were presided over by the Royal Family of Fire. I believe that there are strong connections with Iceland and this family, although the Icelandic skull is thought to be connected to the Royal Family of Water. The consciousness has probably chosen to vacate the skull and is currently residing elsewhere.
Ancient people believed that quartz was frozen water that had been poured down by the Gods from the Heavens. The word crystal comes from the Greek word for ice, crystallos. The energy of quartz can therefore be said to symbolise frozen water, and carries a similar energy to that found in Iceland, indeed it is the embodiment of the name Iceland.
I believe it is likely that the Icelandic skull will re-surface at some point before 2020, possibly within the next 10 years, and will be put on display at the National Museum of Iceland in Reykjavik. It still has the original Atlantean body, that has not changed shape or form, so is likely to be similar to the Mitchell Hedges Skull. When it is put on display, many people from around the world will flock to see it, and because of certain things that happen around the Skull, this will leave people in no doubt as to what the skulls are for, and their role with humanity.
The Vatnajokull Glacier is the largest icecap in Europe, and has two main volcanic regions – Grimsvotn and Bardarbunga, the most active of which, Grimsvotn has erupted twice in recent years – 1996 and 1998. An earthquake that measured 5 on the Richter scale preceded the 1996 eruption. The following day a caldera was spotted on the site of the 1938 eruption. During the course of the day, three more calderas formed. The following morning a cloud of ash up to 3000 metres in height was seen, and the volcano erupted. The resulting melt water was washed out to sea.
The 1998 eruption was quiet in comparison, lasting just a few days. On average the volcano erupts every ten years, so it does seem to have been rather more active than usual in recent years. It can only be a matter of time before the skull emerges, flushed downstream in the floodwaters.
I myself have a very close connection with Iceland, having visited a number of times. I seem to have always been drawn to the country, without knowing why, and visited for the first time in 1984, having been back four times since. During a kinesiology treatment, it transpired that Coran and I were married there over 1000 years ago, having been amongst the group of Norwegian settlers who first colonised the island. This came as no surprise to me, as from the first visit I felt instantly at home on the island. I am also frequently mistaken for an Icelander when I visit.
At the end of January 2001 Coran and I attended a weekend workshop with Edwin Courtenay entitled ‘2001: An Earth Odyssey’. The workshop was held at a converted barn, and on the second day the group opened a sleeping energetic vortex beneath the house. At the time this took place I was in the process of putting together my fifth visit to Iceland.
During the meditation that preceded the opening of the vortex, I kept seeing images of the Great Geysir in Iceland, leading me to wonder whether this too was a vortex of some kind. I mentioned this to Edwin some time later, who confirmed that this was the case, and that this was one of the reasons why I was drawn to visit Iceland at this time. He said that when I arrived I would probably meet a group of other similarly minded people, who would help me with this task.
I was due to depart the UK on 12th July 2001, and as the time approached I began to grow concerned that no more information had been forthcoming. I was aware that I had been dreaming a lot, but was unable to recall anything when I awoke, which I found immensely frustrating.
At the end of June we attended another of Edwin’s workshops, where he gave us some symbols and chants for Earth healing. During one of the meditations I was told that I was to draw three of these symbols around the Geysir with a clear quartz wand in my custodianship, and then invoke one of the chants. I cannot say that I was looking forward to this, as the Geysir area is one of the most visited of all the sites in Iceland, and in July is literally crawling with tour buses. The thought of standing there, waving wands around and chanting did not exactly appeal, but if that was what was needed, I was willing to give it a go.
I departed from London’s Heathrow airport on the evening of Thursday 12th July, and two days later crossed the desert interior by four wheeled drive bus to Lake Myvatn in the north, where I was to spend the next six nights. One of the many things that I did
while visiting the Lake was to take a thirteen-hour trip to the dormant volcano Askja, that lies in Iceland’s uninhabited interior, north of the ice cap Vatnajokull. The landscape there is thought to be very similar to the Moon, and it is here that the American Astronauts were trained in preparation for the Moon Landings.
As the trip progressed I started to feel all sorts of strange energies moving through me, and at times felt that I was almost slipping in and out of parallel universes. This may in fact have been the case, as there are areas around Lake Myvatn, that geologically speaking is one of Iceland’s most active areas, where the land you walk on is only three kilometres from the Earth’s Crust.
One of the many pieces of information that I was given was that the Geysir was in fact an important feeding point for the higher sacral chakra of the world, the Snaefellsjokull
Glacier. This Glacier lies at the western most tip of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, in the west of Iceland, and is renowned as one of the major energetic power centres of the world. It was here that Jules Verne received the inspiration to write his book Journey to the Centre of the Earth.
Many of the American crystal skull researchers talk of an Inner Earth that is thought to be inhabited by various advanced races of beings, who are believed to be the same extra terrestrial tribes that may have first brought the crystal skulls to Earth. This Inner Earth is said to have it’s own Sun, and the northern lights, aurora borealis are a reflection of this Sun over the Earth’s North and South Poles. I wondered whether Snaefellsjokull was in fact the entrance to the Inner Earth.
It certainly makes sense to me that the higher sacral chakra should be situated in Iceland, as Icelanders are one of the most artistically creative people on Earth, writing and reading more books than any other nation. The Icelandic Sagas were written during the 12th and 13th Centuries, and relay stories about the early settlers, their struggles, romances and disputes. Many of these books are accepted as more fact than fiction. They were written in the Old Norse language, from which all Scandinavian languages are derived. Due to its isolation, the Icelandic language has changed little since this time, and it is still possible to read these books in their original form from the manuscripts that have been preserved.
The sacral centre is also associated with the water element, and the feminine energy. Iceland’s links to the Atlantean Royal Family of Water have already been established, and women here had equal rights from the time of settlement in 974 CE. They had the right to divorce their husbands whenever they chose. If a husband divorced his wife, then he was obliged to pay her compensation. If she left with the children, then she was entitled to claim half of his wealth. While the men were away, the running of the farms was left to the women. They took on all the duties normally performed by the men, including the defence of the property. They were also allowed to attend the Parliament and Law Making Assemblies.
In fact, Iceland has the oldest democratic Parliament in the world, founded in the year 930 AD, and known as the Althing. This took place for two weeks every summer at the assembly plains of Thingvellir; a natural rift valley situated an hour’s drive from Reykjavik. People would journey from all around the country in order to attend, as it was regarded as the social event of the year. It was here that Laws were drawn up, disputes settled, marriages and business contracts arranged, and executions carried out. It was also here in 1000 CE that Christianity was peacefully adopted. In 1928 Thingvellir was decreed a National Park. Most modern Icelanders now regard it as their National Shrine.
The Snaefellsnes Peninsula is one of my favourite places in the whole of Iceland, but one that I had not planned to visit this time around. However, the universe in its wisdom had other ideas, and conspired to bring me to this place so that I could also have access to these energies.
As the day approached for me to visit the Geysir and awaken the vortex, I had still not met any people who I felt would be helping me in this, and it was looking more and more likely that it was a task that I would be performing alone. In the end this turned out to be the case, although I also believe it is likely that many of the people visiting the site that day were utilised as passive conduits through which the energy was passed. I arrived at the Geysir at 12.30 pm and I had 1 1/2 hours at the site, in which to do the work.
The Great Geysir, after which all other Geysir’s are named, first began sprouting in the 14th Century, and as the years progressed, started to get more and more sluggish. By the early part of the 20th Century it had stopped erupting altogether, and the only way to make it sprout was by pouring tonnes of soap flakes into it. This had the effect of lowering the water level, trapping cooler water near the surface, and thereby forcing it to erupt. This practise was banned some years ago for environmental reasons, and until last year the Geysir remained dormant.
On 17th June 2000, Iceland’s National Day, when the people celebrate their independence from Denmark, there was an earthquake that measured 6.5 on the Richter scale. The epicentre was situated in a small town a few miles southwest of the capital city, Reykjavik, and in contrast to the Turkish earthquake, that also measured 6.5, remarkably little damage was done. This stirred the dormant Geysir into action, and it has been erupting about three times a day ever since.
A smaller Geysir, known as Strokkur, or Boy erupts about every ten to fifteen minutes, and keeps most of the tourists happy. The eruptions last only a matter of seconds, so the area is usually full of people poised with their fingers hovering over their camera shutter release.
Fortunately for me, this meant that the area around the Great Geysir was deserted, and so I was able to do my work away from the prying eyes of the tourists, wondering what I was up to. I started by reciting a short invocation to the Deva, or guardian of the land, acknowledging their presence, and asking permission to do the work. I also acknowledged the help and presence of my own guides. I then cleansed the wand and set to work drawing the symbols.
I visualised the sleeping vortex springing into life, and as I did so, I saw the energy spiralling upwards from the ground, beginning to spin, like a whirlwind. It then began to subside, and flowed like a river across the land, in all directions. I was later told that the Geysir is just one of several power points scattered throughout Iceland, all of which are linked, and that the Geysir is fundamental to all of these. Some of the others include the volcano Askja, the volcano Eldfell in the Westman Islands, that erupted in January 1973, forcing the evacuation of the islands, the Kverfjoll ice caves north of Vatnajokull, and of course Snaefellsjokull itself.
When I returned to Reykjavik the following day I found the room at the guesthouse where I was staying was not quite ready, so they asked me to wait for ten minutes. While I waited my eyes were drawn to a leaflet advertising day trips to see the blue whales from a small town called Olafsvik off the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. I had been whale watching twice before in Canada, as well as in north Iceland, and had seen several different species of whales, but had always dreamt of seeing a blue whale, one of the largest animals ever to have lived on Earth. As I had several days free in Reykjavik before I flew home, I decided to book the trip for that Friday. I chose Friday as this was named after the Norse Goddess Freyar, representing the feminine energy.
Unfortunately the trip was cancelled due to rough seas, although there was a possibility of going on Saturday, the day before my return to the UK. I spent Friday shopping in Reykjavik, and found myself strangely drawn to one of several shops selling woollen goods to the tourists, even though I find the wool irritates my sensitive skin. I saw on the counter a basket full of crystals, one of which I didn’t recognise. When I asked the shop staff what they were, I was told they were known as Deep Lagoon Pearls, and were stones that were flushed from beneath the glacier Snaefellsjokull when it melted in spring.
The seas were still too rough on Saturday, so I chose instead to do a bus tour around the peninsula, being very much aware that it was important that I spend at least some time in the vicinity of the volcano. During the tour we paid a surprise visit to the beach where these stones are washed up, and I managed to collect several more. The energy they carry is extremely powerful and transformative. I never did get to see a blue whale, but at least I have an excuse to go back.
I found the Icelanders themselves to be very open minded when it comes to matters relating to spirituality. The few people that I mentioned the Icelandic Skull, and the location of the vortexes to were not at all phased to be given this information. I believe this is due to their strong belief in what is referred to as the ‘hidden people’, i.e. elves and trolls.
Although the official religion of Iceland is Lutheranism, more than 80% of the population also believe in the ‘hidden people’. The story goes that one day Eve was washing her children when God, decided to pay her a surprise visit. She had so many children that she did not have time to wash them all, and so hid the dirty ones away, so that God wouldn’t see them. When He asked her where her other children were, she said that she did not have any more. God then said “what is hidden from me, shall also be hidden from human eyes”, upon which the dirty children became the hidden people. In Reykjavik there is even an organisation called the School of the Elves where you can go to learn how to communicate with these people.
The belief has caused some conflict between the Icelandic people and property developers, particularly in the town of Hafnarfjordur, a few miles southwest of Reykjavik. In the centre of the town is a strip of prime land that has been designated as a protected zone, as it is thought to be the dwelling place of the hidden people. In the north of the country, the landscape is dotted with strange shaped rocks that are also believed to be the houses of the hidden people. Some of them have even been fashioned with small wooden doors and windows, just like real miniature houses.
When I say that strange things will happen around the Icelandic Skull once it is discovered and put on display, I believe that due to the belief in the hidden people, there is an above average amount of people in Iceland with psychic abilities. When a large number of people report strange things occurring around the skull, i.e. the fact that it is talking to them etc, and bombarding them with energy, this will be investigated, and the results made public knowledge. The results will probably reveal no more than the British Museum tests revealed, but due to the open nature of the Icelandic people, this time will be revealed, not only to the Icelanders, but also to the world at large. The truth will then be revealed about the true nature of the skulls, and their role with humanity.
