Part 2: The Center of the Garden

At the very center of the Perelandra garden is a Genesa® crystal. It consists of four circles made of copper tubing. Each intersects the others at specific angles, forming a ball and creating an energy antenna. The Genesa® crystal shape was discovered within the DNA by a South American biologist. It draws to it the life-force energy contained within all form, cleanses and balances that energy and releases it back to the form. The Genesa® crystal in this garden is three feet in diameter and draws to it the life-force energy within about a three-mile radius.

The slab of clear quartz crystals sitting inside the Genesa crystal adds the vibratory value of the quartz crystal to the life-force energy as it moves through the Genesa process.

The natural slate, upon which all this sits, stabilizes the overall movement of energy into and from the garden's center.

Underneath the slate is a poster that acts as another antenna, drawing to it tensor energy (also known as "pyramid" energy) from the atmosphere. This is the same energy that is drawn to the pyramids in Egypt. Among its various properties, tensor energy intensifies and strengthens that which it impacts.

Machaelle considers the center to be the garden's massive "energy engine." The various components were placed there over a period of four years. In short, this energy vortex, which began in 1980 as a simple natural quartz rock placed in the center, was established carefully and gradually as the balance of the garden itself strengthened. What was to be placed in the center and when, was information given to Machaelle by nature. As with the rest of the garden, she never made that decision on her own.

Bordering the center area is a ring of natural quartz rocks. Placed on top of this circle are other minerals and shells that have been included by nature for energy reasons.

The mulch we use for the herb ring around the center is cocoa shell mulch. When it first gets spread it smells like chocolate. This mulch maintains an alkaline balance in the soil rather than shifting the soil to acid, and herbs prefer a more alkaline balance.
