Carcassonne sits high on a hill just 120 km from the Mediterranean sea. It was the strong hold of the Cathars, and whilst the site goes back to the 6th century, it is predominantly 12th century.
The history of the city says that it has been attacked many times but was mostly thought to be impregnable. Standing in front of it one can see why. An outer wall high and complete with ramparts and a moat just staves off the 10 metres of no mans land before the inner wall.
Yet in 1209 it was attacked and the Cathars handed over the castle and city to the French King, only to be killed, raped, and burnt alive for their grace.
This is where my story starts. In 2004 I visited the stunning city of Carcassonne for the first time. It truly is a wonderful site and I enjoyed a wander around and lunch in the medieval restaurants. Fast forward to 2013 when I led a Templar Knight tour where the group stayed in the walls. In the city, the group fragmented, tempers got high, complaints abounded and I personally was as angry as I could be. So was my business partner. We were just pissed.
I took those that wanted into the square in front of the cathedral and used the pendulum.
Where some of our group killed here in a past life?
Did others of our group do the killing?
Where some of those killed women and children at the time?
I could see that coming back was a huge part of healing for those in our group. But what about me.
So this time Landi and I come and I warn her of the energies of Carcassonne. We stay in a stunning room with views of the ramparts from our bed. We wander but by the time we sit down for dinner I am angsty. About what I don’t know. After a bottle of wine we return to the room and now I am angry. We have a pact to not be in bed grumpy so we just go to sleep. The next morning as I am trying to shake of this weird haze, with Landi asking me what is going on, the room door opens about 1/3rd. There is no one there. We look at each other and look back at the door. It shuts. I feel instantly lighter.
Within half an hour we are outside and presented before me is a jewellery shop. I have been looking for a particular ring for about a year. There it is in the window. I thought the stone may be red or green but in fact its Amber. Amber stands for protection, old sacred wisdom, dissolves negative energy and helps with patience. Perfect for me
So I left Carcassonne feeling balanced, light and wise.
Question: Do you feel that you need to return to places of trauma in past lives to heal them and move on.
Truth: Sites carry energy of major events that occur there. Only after continued clearing and prayer can they be cleansed. You are a crystal being. You can be cleansed without returning to the site of the trauma…. but it can really help. If you notice yourself out of sorts and wonder why… you may just have to look back beyond this life for the answer
