Ffraed’s beautiful Song for the Land is serenading the landscape of southwest Wales from the holy waters of St. Bride’s Bay to Strata Florida Abbey through Talley Abbey, St Dogmael’s Abbey, Whitland Abbey, St. David’s Cathedral & well over 100 more precious sacred locales to St. Bride’s Bay again.
This is an article reproduced from the private blog. Some of the links & mentions refer to other private articles, so will not click through. A few of these may be posted in this public blog at a later date.
A documentary and a book are in the wind that will provide a great deal more information.
Thank you Olwyn, for another great article. – Ellis
Ellis asked me if I could investigate the Ffraed’s Day sunrise alignment, as seen from Her Holy Well at Llanllawer. Here’s what I found..
Despite the glacial crawl of academia and consent-science to wake up to common sense and observable and easily tested discoveries, there were in epochs of ever-retreating immense timescales, amongst humankind (not necessarily ‘humans’ , or a humankind as insisted) some with knowledge and abilities that compare and better that of humans today. Like never before (as far as we know) modern technology provides clearing windows through the mists into the genius of our ancestors…or that of their teachers. Either way, these skills have survived to this day, subdued, blunted, and reduced they might be but they are there, and so is the knowledge. It has always been secreted, amongst a very tiny select that hold within their energetic field an undetectable specialised component of consciousness that lays dormant till it is activated by a unique frequential (psychic) key.
This is how vastly imperative awareness and expertise has survived. Those that have carried it, are and have been fiercely tested, relentlessly, and censored beyond any telling by the legions and hosts of the Darkness Invisible. The Light Side has survived. It always will.
I’m intrigued by historians, Alan Wilson’s and Baram Blackett’s contention that Empress Helen brought ‘the true cross’ to Dyfed and concealed it in a cave here. Y Ddraig Ffraed flows through this cave.
As well, Alan Wilson relates whispered stories he heard from the locals, when he was a kid living for a time with his uncle on a farm near Dinas Cross. In hushed and reverent close company they told how the old folk knew, and passed down through the generations, an even greater secret…that Jesus was buried nearby. This site is not on the dragon.
The following are some of the posts I’ve made to do with these matters and more, on Britain’s Hidden History FB page:
Gaer is a ‘Fort’ on the side of the road at Bayvil, near Nevern, Pembrokeshire… [Gaer] is locally famous among archaeologists as a prehistoric monument re-used by early Christians as a burial place. It was excavated in 1979 and found to be packed with stone cists aligned east-west, within a stone faced bank.
Today I am delighted to post what I hope will be the first of many articles by the wonderfully accomplished archaeoastronomer, Olwyn Pritchard.
