Anglesey Megalithic Tour 2015 P2

Anglesey Megalithic Tour 2015 P2

In the second part of my Anglesey Megalithic Tour story we are heading out along the northern coast of the island in search of more wonderful sites. We’re now back on the agenda, and so the next destination is the Soar Stone. We chased the edges of the deep rain clouds which had been flirting with us all day long. For some reason we were being spared the rain that everyone else on the mainland was getting. The sun travelled with us. The Soar Stone – Standing stone – Llanfaethlu, LL65 4NL We parked at the recently renovated Black Lion Inn just outside of the village on the A5025. I have to say – they’ve done a fantastic job with the place! It looked modern, yet inviting. I think it may well be the stopping point for future tours of...

Summer 2015 – P7 – The Light of Brighid

Summer 2015 – P7 – The Light of Brighid

In the last of my Summer Solstice posts (can you believe we’ve generated so much from one weekend?) we are taken on an escorted tour of a sacred site. We have left David at Fourknocks, but Regina has stayed with us to show us one more site: The Shrine of Brigid at Faughart. We arrived at the shrine site and parked alongside a bus and another car. Throughout the period we visited the car park would get busier, and the site more populous. Regina mentioned that most of the visitors were from the traveller community. The site was quite unusual – a mixture of ancient stones with healing properties and a clutter of modern …. stuff… that seemed to be aimed at… er, informing the visitor and guiding them on their sacred journey in praise of...

Of Fay, Magician, Djinn and Dragons p3 Solstice 2015

Of Fay, Magician, Djinn and Dragons p3 Solstice 2015

After the impossible event that had just occurred I was excited to see what would happen next. I had placed the Coin (that had the ability to read the hearts of others) and a quartz crystal on top of the Seat of the King. The king walked into the mound. What I mean is that he was stood ephemerally in the stone of the mound. Then bending down he looked through the crystal that was atop the coin, directly at me. Aha…I thought to myself. I hadn’t used the coin like that! You are looking into your ancestors, the king said. It wasn’t a question. So I didn’t respond. The magician that bound the dragons was using them to gain a greater prize. He was trying to use them to tame our very distant cousins, the Djinn.  Really, the Djinn are your...

Magic of the Fay p2 Solstice 2015

After playing with three of the chambers of the Loughcrew the rods had brought me to the central mound and what looked like a seat. I was about to sit on it when I felt that it was already occupied. By what? I wondered. Taking up a position of to the side somewhat I tuned out this world and tuned in another. It was the world of the Fay. Now, usually (he says in a of hand way) my communes with the Fay have been pluristic. What I mean is that the commune seems to be with a collective, rather than an individual. In this instance however I communed with an individual. A being that had a king like stature, however, I had a feeling that he was a king rather than the king. The energy around the commune felt friendly and receptive and indeed such was the case as the...

Dinas Emrys part 2 Bees, Crows, Fay and the Wand Ingredients

Dinas Emrys part 2 Bees, Crows, Fay and the Wand Ingredients

Our climb up to Dinas Emrys had been an unexpected surprise and not a good one. That tale of test is told here. However as we reached the base of the hill that is Dinas Emrys, I heard and then saw a bee buzz by. If you read this post from last year. In fact last (2014) summer solstice, Chris and I were in Ireland. One of the sites we visited was Drombeg. A beautiful place and one that is home to a Fay portal. It was there that I was given the friendship and ability to connect with the Fay. The process, however, required three crows, three bees and the four elements.  As the bee faded into the distance I was reminded of the experience in Ireland. I shouted across to Chris, “two more bees”. He knew what I meant and we carried on our climb up Dinas...

Dinas Emrys part 1 The Test

Dinas Emrys part 1 The Test

We had just completed the arduous climb to Moel Ty Uchaf which had surprised me with two things. How easy the climb had been and that I had gained another ingredient to The Wand. The day before I had suggested another site to Chris, Dinas Emrys. My reasons for this suggestion were two-fold. Primarily Chris was seeking a site that he could connect with the underworld with and he had done that very thing here. Secondly, it was a relatively easy climb, which I felt would do us just nicely after Uchaf! We arrived in good time around 2.30 and the day was still a pleasant sun with a cooling breeze. Perfect. We set along our normal approach and after only a few minutes a local farmer guy told us that we were on private land and that we should take another route up to...
