Beltane 2017 – Seeking Elen

Beltane 2017 – Seeking Elen

It’s well past the Summer Solstice and I’m only just posting about Beltane. Boy, have I got some catching up to do! Let’s begin. A long time ago I drew my first ley line along a map of North Wales. One of its key points in Snowdonia was the peak of Yr Elen. Something had been drawing me to the place ever since that moment, but I had never had the strength of will to meet the challenge. Now, I needed to prove to myself that I had such determination in the face of all that was contrary such as common sense, time, distance, effort, capability, weather.

Merlin and the Spirit of Albion

It’s not often that I bring the information from my meditation group into this space. In fact, this may only be the second time. However, when we are working with the larger energies and several people get exactly the same information, then I think that is more than just personal information – it’s information for all to learn from. The energy I asked the group to consider was The Spirit of Albion – the spirit of these lands. Most of the participants found this easy to imagine. I asked them to rise above the islands and consider the land as a whole, and then invited the spirit of the land to come to meet them. Next I asked that the Spirit of Albion show them a place in the land that was special to them, and then for them to be connected to...
