Reconfigurations and Repurcussions

Reconfigurations and Repurcussions

It was the first energetic thing that I could bring myself to do after Kal’s death. I knew what needed to be done, but I needed a week away to even begin to get enough space between the event and what I needed to find the strength to do. Energetically, shamanically, we had discussed the concept of clearing death energy many times. This was not the circumstance in which I ever intended to use such practices. Yet the fact remained. Kal’s energy needed to be released from the spot where he had died. Only I knew that. Only I knew how to do that. Only I cared that it was done. He would only have wanted me to be the one to do it. So I had to stiffen up the sinews and go back there. Back to the slopes of Dinas Bran in Llangollen. On the way it looked so...

Coat of Arms – Lammas 8

Coat of Arms – Lammas 8

In hindsight, this was my final eventful experience in Kilmartin and it was a reminder of something long forgotten. Like I needed reminding. We had just finished up at the Castle and headed to the church in Kilmartin. It’s a small place and to be quite honest I wasn’t expecting much in the way of work. I took a walk around the place and found it to be quite pleasant. Of course there were plenty of tourist taking pictures and so I joined them in this escapade. It only takes about a minute before I am bored of that and decide to investigate with the rods. A pastime that is more obtuse when surrounded by tourists, but what they hay! I asked the rods for something that would be of interest to me and was taken inside an ancient building or so the signs...

Magician Quest

Magician Quest

It began with an urge…to connect with my ancestors. Which was to begin in the home of my folks, Pakistan. Or so I thought. In fact I had even put it on my list of places to visit. Then a visit to Dinas Emrys and a commune with the spirit of Merlin changed all that. Merlin had told me that I wasn’t of Albion (obviously) but also that I wasn’t of Pakistan or the historical region it was in. This was a bit of shock, but not more than a huge spiral turning when he said that I was related to, if not the descendant of a magician from the middle-east. Starting points on spirals is a terrible gambit. As soon as you think that this is where it all began you are shown another step in the past which is also where it could have started. Was it with Dragons...

A Magician an Artifact and a Shade p4 Solstice 2015

Repeat Experience Please If it worked once, why not again? The last time I was at Knowth I had been taught how to use a pentagram of quartz crystals to open my third eye (exponentially). That had led to an amazing vision at Dowth and ultimate a journey to visit the Oracle of Delphi in Greece. Who was I to not attempt a similar experience? Here we were at Knowth and having persuaded the tour guide that we didn’t need the tour, both Chris and I were off doing our own thing…I found myself wandering through the mounds whilst my rods attempted to settle on a place of preparation. Perhaps it is because the whole of Knowth is a place of initiation? Nevertheless a short time of wandering later had me facing a grate to the innards of a mound. The gate had a...

Immortality and Mad Jacks Tomb

Immortality and Mad Jacks Tomb

I often feel that people put too much emphasis on ley lines. These invisible subtle energy pathways seem to hold an endless fascination with some people. For me, the more interesting energies are their constituent energies – the male and female earth and celestial energies that ley lines transport from point to point in the landscape. Nevertheless, on a sunny Spring evening, just as the sun was beginning to set, I found myself at one of Sussex’s most odd structures called Mad Jack Fuller’s Tomb – an over-sized pyramid tomb in the very small village of Brightling. I was therefore quite surprised to discover that the most interesting thing about this structure was its ley line connection, and how that connected with the idea of immortality....

Faerie, Spirit, Afterlife and Time

Faerie, Spirit, Afterlife and Time

Come on! Surely that title has got to intrigue you? If you recall from a previous post (Ireland Crows and Bees) I had been given the knowledge on how to access a faerie grove. Specifically, it required a combination of the four elements, three bees and three crows. At that time I thought that such a congruence was very unlikely so I forgot about it, until… I was visiting the grave of my mum (not that I believe in any kind of spiritual connection with the grave nor indeed a shade type connection either, I suspect it’s purely sentimental and there is nothing wrong with that). As I said, I was sat contemplating her absence when a bee buzzed past. It was the first bee that I had consciously recognised this year and I watched with interest as it buzzed...
