Summary 2013 – Lessons Learned Pt1

In the second of my year-end summary posts I am listing the most important things I have learned this year. I’ve arranged them in chronological order by month as this seems to show the development of the learning in the best way. There’s too much to read in one go, so I’ve split this into two posts. Part 1 is January to June/July. Part 2 will be the back half of the year. One of my favourite phrases is “Every day is a school day.” It certainly feels like that walking this path of druidry and divination! January Spooky! Learned that some pet energies can be grounded through respectful burial involving knowledge of their energetic links to humans (e.g. an owner) Also found a spirit that is classically called an Incubus preying upon the...

Sunset at the Druids Circle 1/3 What’s in a Name

It began with a dream. A couple of days ago I awoke from my slumber with a yearning for the Druids Circle. Gwas was unavailable so I thought I would call on my sister. Although sacred sites mean nothing to her she would enjoy the views and the walk. Having confirmed her availability I called upon her at the appointed hour only to be told that plans had changed! Argggghhh!!! Time and distance being what they were, my sojourn to the Druids Circle was left begging. Fortunately fate (or other forces?) conspired differently. A couple of days later, the weather being an astonishingly hot, Gwas called to say that, and I quote, “We have to go out! The Weather!” In his missive he had suggested a couple of sites. I countered with the Druids Circle and an...

The Arthurian Earth Energies

In early June Kal and I visited The Druid’s Circle at Penmaenmawr near Conwy. We arrived there in time for sunset, and the western skies filled out with ever-deepening shades of red until the whole sky turned inky-blue as the sun retreated beneath the sea. Before the light around us completely faded I had some work to do. I was here to try to find out more about my spirit guide who was relatively new to me. My previous guide Theodora had been unfathomable, but honestly I had stopped trying to know more at the first hurdle, not wanting to upset her. Now I had Ash, and he seemed more amenable, so I felt it was incumbent upon me to make the effort to forge a strong relationship that could be mutually beneficial. With that in mind I made my way towards the...

The synchronistic call to Delphi

Preamble: We have many words for the average, the mundane, the material, the non-sacred, the everyday kind of life. A term that I prefer these days is ‘the asleep’ which is stolen from one of my early mentors GI Gurdjieff. That description seems appropriate to this post because it presents us with a jumping off point. Those who are ‘asleep’ sleep-walk through life and miss the signs that are subtly present and if those signs are presented more in-your-face then they are relegated to the suburbs of ignominy known as coincidence. Which banner you put the following under I leave to your careful consideration. I, put it in the ‘meaningful life’ category, let’s see what you think? Dinas Bran and the missing crystal It was...

Samhain 2012 – The Hawk and The Dove

Finally I have got around to writing up my Samhain experiences. It’s only the back end of November, and this occurred at the beginning of October! One aspect of this year’s work has been the incredible amount of material we have had to deal with. Only a fraction of it appears on this blog. This year we will end up with 200 draft posts that didn’t get finished. But now – back to the tale at hand. Yew Know What To Do We start, as usual, at the Llangernyw Yew tree. 4000 years of dendrochronology pulsing through its dark boughs. On the way to the village of Llangernyw (yew) I was heading towards a rainbow which coincidentally seemed to land on the village as I approached. Coincidence, of course, because this light phenomenon is linked to...
