I envy Gwas, he seems to be able to get his quests completed in short order whereas I seem to be collecting them. Maybe he envies me for having such a fine collection? In any case, it was time to take stock. Here are the quests or beginnings points that I have on my map…
- Phoenix and the Philosophers Stone (Seeking the philosophers stone)
- Blue Book of the Emerald Dragons 9 separations (gained on a recent visit to the Emerald Isle)
- Wand Making (Remember this one from about 3 years ago?)
- Energy Double and Greece (needing to follow my energy double to Greece and Delphi)
- Being a native of America(don’t know what I am supposed to do with this one)
- My message (Getting my message out there)
Wow! That is a lot of quests right? It’s not as bad as it sounds. #6 is going well with some radio interviews and getting my message out there. The others though seem to be stagnating, or are they? Surely intuition should decide, right?
Armed with this list of quests I headed towards the only site that came to mind. Alderley Edge. The wizards wood, where I had been named Magician who creates his own world oh so many (well, okay 4) years ago. I arrived there late in the morning and immediately got my dowsing rods out. Was this the place to ask questions and get answers? Yes (hmmm surely I should have asked that before driving the hour to here?). I walked through the wood following my rods and finally arrived at the fake stone circle. What? Here? Yes. Weird! Time for some questions.
Missing the spiral
Was there some kind of order to how I should follow these quests? Yes. Now then, my feelings had been that I had been stuck because I had needed to go to Delphi in Greece to kick start them. Having said that I asked which quest was first on the list?
- The answer I got was1. Seeking out the Philosophers stone.
I was surprised, what about Greece, Delphi. Surely that was the first? The starting place, the place of genesis? I asked several questions around this topic and came to a sad conclusion. I had missed the boat! Delphi had been the first place to go, but the time for it had passed, I had delayed too long and now I had to await that spiral to come again before it would be worth my while to go. Could I discover how many weeks, months, years that would be? No.
Returning to the Philosophers Stone I asked whether there was anything to learn as to how to go about this quest? After a while and many questions I came to the answer that I was already on this quest. Side note: Over the last couple of months I have been perusing everything on energy that I can find. From New Age (er…) to Sufism, to Native American beliefs, Eastern Shaminism (the proper books). Not to mention Religions (there is a lot of useful stuff here if you can get around the righteousness)
This deep research has been to bolster my understanding of personal energy and to inform my theory and practical energy framework. apparently this has also been following the path of the philosopher’s stone. Okay, I don’t mind killing two birds with one stone. But there is more.
Further dowsing revealed that the philosophers stone was related to my message too. So my message was/is a close second. It sounds quite reasonable now that I look at it like this. Of course I need to know before I can teach. Doh! Anyway it was nice to see that my thoughts of being stale wasn’t the case.
So could I garner any more about these quests? Yes. The third quest to consider was the Becoming a Native of America. This was a surprise as I don’t even know what to do for this quest. Surely I was just to be one? Apparently not! Great (sic) now I have something more to worry about.
I asked a lot more questions about this but wasn’t given any useful information. A whole lot of no, no, no! Fair enough. It seems that there is a temporal component about such dowsing. The more into the future that you go the more un-dowseable it is. Makes sense.
So where am I standing? Well, my focus should be on the alchemical secrets of the Philosophers Stone at least for the coming months. This I feel will be feeding into my message. Which will have something to do with being a Native American. How? I have no idea.
On the way back from the wizards wood I was feeling happy. I reflected on the feeling and the answer came from my own research.
The Root energy centre is one that is concerned with the question Where Am I? When it is energised and balanced the person has a deep understanding of where they are in life. It seems that I had found that place. As an aside the Root is also one that is associated with foundations and it is curious that over the last two months I have embarked on a personal quest to bring my estranged sister, brother and sister and their sub-families together. A monumental quest in its own right.
