For a very long time, pagans lived in Russia, many of their rituals and traditions have come down to our time and are revered not only by neo-pagans, but also by Christians. What is worth only the holiday of Ivan Kupala (Spirits Day): millions of people gather for its celebration, the official church does not prohibit it. Meanwhile, he came to us from the Gentiles. One of the natural mysteries of pagan times is the Blue Stone.
This miracle is located on the shore of Lake Pleshcheyevo, not far from Pereslavl-Zalessky. At first glance, this is the most common 3-meter gray boulder, only if you look closely, you can see a blue tint. But after the rain, it acquires a rich blue color. Although the times of the pagans have long passed, but even today you can see offerings near the stone: coins, ribbons on the bushes, food.
People from all over Russia come to the Blue Stone to recharge their batteries, recover from various diseases, so it can already be called a peculiar placePilgrimage Lake Pleshcheyevo. The blue stone makes a person cheerful and cheerful, cures female infertility, gives male strength, relieves such ailments as bronchial asthma, psoriasis, dermatosis. Also near him, pressure normalizes, heart and headaches disappear.
The blue stone has a very interesting history. Two millennia ago, Finns, who were pagans, settled near Pleshcheevo Lake. On the mountain, now called Alexandrova, they spotted an unusual cobblestone. They decided that a spirit lives in it, so they made a stone an altar, made sacrifices to it, performed various rituals. Over time, Russian pagans settled in this place, and the stone passed to them.
After the adoption of Christianity, the Blue Stone experienced a wave of persecution. At first, the priests ordered him to be thrown off the mountain, but this did little to help. People still came to the stone, begging for help. What the church just did not invent in order to deprive the boulder of its flock and lure the entire Pereslavl-Zalessky to itself. They even decided to bury the blue stone, digging out a huge hole, but after 15 years it miraculously reappeared.
At the end of the 18th century, the church again made an attempt to get rid of the "competitor". Then it was decided to wall it up under the foundation of the church under construction. For this, huge sledges were built to carry the boulder across the lake. But it so happened that the ice cracked, and the stone fell to the bottom. It would seem that he could no longer rise from a depth of one and a half meters, but it was not there. Movement of the Blue Stonefishermen were the first to notice. After 50 years, he got ashore. There are many versions of how this happened, but be that as it may, believers worshiping the stone have noticeably increased.
At first, the Blue Stone towered 1.5 m above the ground, but now it rises only 30 cm. The fact is that year after year the giant goes underground, so those who want to see this miracle need to hurry. Some believe that the stone goes underground because of the swampy shores, while others think that it hides before the onset of bad times and appears before the good news. Be that as it may, the Blue Stone cannot be an ordinary boulder, because during his long life he listened to many human stories and wishes. Perhaps this is a place where you can ask the higher powers for he alth and well-being. The main thing is to believe, and the stone will definitely help.
