Havant & it's Magical Legacy With The Divine Feminine
Even though I’m not originally from Havant, I sensed an enchanting aura and a strong connection to the divine feminine that surrounds this place.
The name Hamafunta, derived from Hama’s spring, was documented back in AD935 as the present-day Havant. This name possibly refers to the Homewell spring, located towards the southwest of St Faith’s churchyard.
For a thousand years the market town of Havant was the centre for parchment making. The parchment for both the Magna Carta and The Treaty of Versailles was produced here.
THE SPRINGS OF HAVANT
There are over twenty springs that rise within the old parish of Havant. The source of the water is very deep-seated. It emerges crystal clear and at a constant temperature of 51º F. In the bygone era, these springs and holy wells were believed to possess miraculous healing qualities.
The divine feminine is beautifully reflected in the element of water. By diving deeper into our connection with water, we establish a profound bond with our yin energy and embrace our feminine essence. Water gracefully governs various aspects of our being, such as intuition, compassion, spirituality, receptivity, psychic ability, creativity, depth, and mystery.
SACRED MASCULINE & FEMININE
In the vicinity of Langstone harbour, the remnants of the once-thriving Oyster beds are enchantingly present. This area, now a cherished nature reserve, allows us to uncover countless oyster shells.
Symbolically, oysters embody both the strength of the Sacred Masculine and the tenderness of the Feminine. Celtic culture views them as potent representations of fertility, abundance, new beginnings, and opportunities. Furthermore, they share an intimate association with the moon, just as they harmonize with the element of water. Living in harmony with ever-changing tides and currents, oysters impart invaluable wisdom on maintaining balance in our own lives.
ROMAN HERITAGE & NEPTUNE
Havant, is located along the ancient Roman road connecting Clousentum to Regnum (Chichester to Southampton). It holds no surprise that it served as an ideal spot for the Romans to establish their villas. Over time, some of these remarkable villas have become lost to the depths of history, like the one believed to lie beneath South Downs College. As the years have passed, numerous remnants from the Roman era have been discovered in Havant, bringing glimpses of the past to light. Among these findings, a Roman well containing coins and a bronze ring engraved with Neptune, the god of rivers, springs, and waters, was unearthed from a garden in Havant. However, arguably the most intriguing discovery was the presence of eight dog skeletons found deep within the well. These dogs, revered in ancient religions, may have been offerings to the gods in this sacred well.
MAGIC OF LAY LINES
In addition to its Roman heritage, Havant possesses another captivating aspect – it rests upon a ley line that stretches from Hayling Island and extends beyond, passing through Clanfield. These mystical ley lines are believed to be spiritual pathways, interweaving through ancient sites and monuments. Considered to hold positive energy and serve as a source of spiritual power, these ley lines add an extra layer of enchantment to Havant’s intriguing history.
