Across the Creek – Land energy experiences in the home paddock, explores the relationship with the subtle energies of place through the canvas of Helens home property in Central West New South Wales.

Helen shares a world that many of us have either forgotten or are too busy to focus on. What she shares shows our impact on the land in a way that we have perhaps understood intuitively, but ignored consciously. Helen generously shares experiences of the subtle structures that uphold physical forms, of trees, creeks and landscapes. She describes her experience of energy wells, earth meridians, traumatic imprints and how sourcing can release blockages and free up the spirit of a place and the people who have a relationship with it. The message that comes through is the interconnected nature of our relationship with the Earth and the subtle life forms that are all around us.

Each experience is beautifully illustrated with water-colours painted onto faded images of the actual location where each experience occurred. Helen’s experiences shed some light on the inner landscape of consciousness and the subtle forms that bring life and joy to the places we love.

Across the Creek is a work of spirit. Totally enchanting and inspiring. Helen has managed an extraordinary communication between the worlds – past and present, and through her exquisite art and words communicates with the reader transporting them to a place of contemplation and reverence”.

A read that captures and combines culture, vision, humanity and family whilst highlighting the importance of one’s mind”.

A serious meditator, Helen began noticing the presence of a group of Aboriginal Women from her home property while she was meditating overseas. In time, these Women became more noticeable. When Helen returned to Australia in 2012, she began to actively explore this relationship. This book provides transcripts of some of those experiences. Helen uses water colour painting to share what she sees through her inner awareness on top of the physical scenes where each experience occurred.

The journey uncovers different types of subtle energies that Helen experienced, including energy wells, thresholds, imprints from traumatic events, earth meridians, dreaming tracks and sacred or subtle weaves. There are also powerful releases of modern day blocks through the sourcing of the original energetic imprint.

Helen’s experience suggests that subtle energies are everywhere, we only need to look and she gives signposts to assist in this process.

6 thoughts on “Across the Creek

  1. Dr. Helen Russ has written an important addition to the bibliography on the subject of the subtle realm of land energies. Her artwork depicts her actual experiences on the faded out photographic representation of the physical realm. The spaces are tangible and the reader is brought on an intimate journey into the depths of the Australian land and given a glimpse of Aboriginal spirituality and relationship to the land.

  2. Thanks Geraldine McGloin.

    For those of you who don’t know, growing up in Ireland, Geraldine has a deep knowledge of Irish land energies. She is steeped within the land energies of her home place in such a way that she can feel subtle changes, subtle weaves and sacred places including a sense of how to interact with them. A deep literary knowledge from Irish writers of old has added to this inherent knowledge. Geraldine has helped me map the spaces of consciousness that are depicted in Across the Creek and I am deeply grateful for her insights, her support and the purity of her intent.

  3. If you want the real deal, Helen Russ’s new book ‘Across the Creek’ invites you to open your perception to the unseen of the world.

    Beautifully implemented and presented, beginners can engage for themselves, to have direct experience and understanding of land energies, consciousness, and yourself. It is also a step towards understanding the mystical consciousness of our indigenous peoples and an invitation to step towards their world view and experience, that we may all find healing and the commonality of our spiritual roots.

    Helen’s book is a window and training in applied consciousness. It is a powerful adjunct to meditation. Like a smorgasbord, you take what you want. The feast is a set of tools for life that if you choose to exercise, will change your view of the world forever.

  4. Something I feel sadly missing in our modern world is the understanding of subtle realms and our ability to sense energies consciously. You often see people out in nature rushing around and not taking notice of the very reason they need to be there.

    The reflective nature of Across The Creek is a powerful way to go inside and contemplate our inner and outer environment so we can get back to what we all possess – the ability to feel and see, the ability to sense things beyond our over-active minds.

    The stresses we encounter in the 21st century are overreaching in many ways. In a world moving so fast, we need to understand what we are losing in terms of human experience and take it back before we have no hope of regaining it.

    Thank you Helen for your creative expression. Refreshing.

  5. From Michele Goeldi – November 28 2020 10.31am

    As soon as I held your book, the sensual black cover of Across The Creek immersed me in the numinous experiences that you reveal through your story. At first the black cover and then the Aboriginal Women in conversation, emerge. It’s beautiful, subtle and yet direct. Like the content of the book.

    At Booroola, while you were writing on the spirit of organisations you lived the reality of the spirit, the driving forces, the light, within the land itself and listened to the knowing of all those who are present in it.

    I love the way you take the reader through an awareness of the multiple layers of reality .
    You not only take us across the creek, you take us on a journey through streams of consciousness that lift the veils of space and time. You peal away the layers that distract you from yourself.

    You see and map different dimensions and deeper realms of wisdom that are shared with you… And you have found a way in your beautiful artwork to show them to us.
    You have such a down to earth way of leading us through the portals to land energies and the wisdom of the knowledge keepers.
    We get to see how you ask profound questions and then show us the raw experiences on the way towards understanding.
    The things that shaped you, shaped us.
    You reveal the impact of a disconnect that underpinned the early settler’s misunderstanding of the land.
    At the same time you reveal the far greater light within the land and within the people who KNOW they are part of it (and have been custodians of it for aeons).

    The keys you have given to subtle energy mapping will help others listen, to be receptive to what is.
    I feel your book is a book of healing.
    A way for others to turn towards the inner realms of the Self and so, to know the world.
    Perhaps with the help of the Wise Women, maybe heal it.

    All the best creative woman for a very profound and joyful book launch

    May the WOMEN be with you

  6. We are lucky to have storyteller, Helen Russ, in our lives, for the depth of Life that she leads me and others towards. Have courage and read, fall deeply into the world that Helen brings us in, Across the Creek, if you dare. Anything that helps us fall more in Love with our planet and our souls is worthwhile.
