Recently, a beautiful crop circle was discovered in a field beside Stonehenge which contains remarkable yogic symbolism.
To me, this is really a form of Sri Yantra.
A Sri Yantra is a depiction of the sushumna, the principle spiritual channel that runs inside the spine, through which kundalini travels. We are looking up the tube of sushumna through all the chakras to the bindu point in the centre.
If we look at our crop circle with this in mind, we can view it as a tube with a star in the centre. The star has seven points for the culmination of the seven chakras at the crown. At a certain point in meditation a star can be seen in the third eye.
When the yogi concentrates long enough with half-open eyes at the point between the eyebrows, and when the gaze is without any restless motion, he will be able to see a steady light surrounded by other, but flickering, lights. He should not be diverted by this glimmering halo of the spiritual eye, but should steadfastly look at the center of the eye until he feels his mind completely absorbed within it. In time, he will see the perfect formation of the spiritual eye: a dark opal-blue globe within a quivering ring of flame. Gradually, by deep concentration, an extremely brilliant white star occasionally glimmers in the center of the blue. The star is the gateway through which the consciousness must pass to attain oneness with Spirit. Paramhansa Yogananda
The crescent moon behind the star represents the bindu chakra. This chakra is located behind and below the crown. It is like a round box with its lid slightly open emitting light in the shape of the crescent moon that we see in Shiva’s hair.
This is the point of emanation and retraction of the physical body, the source of amrita and a primal point of clear consciousness and unity, something we very much need in our current world conditions.
The outer circle has 82 divisions, the inner 73, both add up to 10, giving 1010, which reduces to 11. Eleven is again a symbol of oneness and also the twin strands of our DNA.
For me, this crop circle is about true unity and our journey home. I wonder what it’s trying to tell us about Stonehenge?
