Ancients carved this triple spiral on the stone barrow wall deep within New Grange in Ireland’s County Meath. Winter solstice light strikes it at sunrise through a shaft boring deep into this “wonder hill.” Visitors crouch and move through this “birthing canal” and stop, in awe, at this three-fold figure. Spirals capture “female essence,” intuitive, turning, pulsing, birthing, forever cycling. Groups that truly honor the “feminine” in all present, and allow the birth process to proceed, uninhibited, can midwife each other into a new creations. This image reminds us that fertile and powerful creative energy is coiled and ready to produce fruitful and necessary actions. Orange: Opposite of blue, orange fills us with vitality, strength and purpose.
