Dowsing Meteors

Dowsing Meteors

In 2011 I visited the Natural History Museum in London. During that visit I was attracted to the meteorites in one of the less-visited sections of the building. It was an intuitive response to something whose energies I felt I needed to experience. The full tale of my meeting with the meteors at the British museum cab be found in the post ‘Meetings with Meteorites‘). So when one of my meditation friends, a young girl just finding her feet spiritually, brought me a gift of some Moldavite, then I was both surprised and intrigued. Would it be as interesting as the specimens int he museum, I wondered? I had to dowse to find out! The properties of proper Moldavite My friend explained that this was a genuine (certified) piece of meteor. It was merely a...

Cailleach and The Mesa Luna Amulet

Cailleach and The Mesa Luna Amulet

Not all my visions come about as a result of a visit to a megalithic site. I do some work with a group of lovely people who attend my outdoor meditation sessions during the Summer months. When the group isn’t meeting during the Winter then some of these friends come around to work with me in a more social context, and this affords us the chance to try different meditation methods. By a beautiful coincidence the evening that we meditated was also a full moon. The omens were auspicious, and the energy of the evening matched it perfectly. The group were lovely (as usual) and when I suggested a meditation we all got stuck in – incense was lit, and a candle was placed in the centre of the group as a focal point for anyone who wanted it. I did. I got...

Oak staff formed in flame

Oak staff formed in flame

I was doing some work with a meditation group. We had met regularly throughout the year and had become good friends. I had gathered them this evening to keep the connections alive whilst the outdoor meditations were in hibernation. I had set a theme for the informal gathering, as I wanted it to still be about meditation, and so the theme was “Using fire“. I lit a candle in my meditation space at the end of the garden – a summerhouse with just enough room to house all eight of us. It was tight squeeze, but it kept us warm and cosy. The candle light became a central focus, and I quickly led the experienced group into the meditation space, and then I followed them, using the light and flicker of the flame to move me into an altered state of...

Imbolc 2016 P3 Criss-Crossing Lines

Imbolc 2016 P3 Criss-Crossing Lines

There was more to my visit to Gawton’s Well at Imbolc. Not only had I been fortunate enough to be given my new quest for the Imbolc to Spring period, but I was also about to learn something important about the way that land spirits are formed and how their influence is distributed. Having felt that I could no longer maintain the energies required to keep a strong subtle energy connection to the Brigid spirit, I turned my attentions to an altogether different task – I went back to good old dowsing! Gathering my trusty rods (only recently re-discovered hiding in a drawer all Winter) I sought a starting point for some investigatory work. I knew that Imbolc signaled the return of the male earth energy lines, so that seemed like a good concept to begin...

Tarot for the Year 2016

Tarot for the Year 2016

As has become a regular ritual I have done a tarot reading to give me some guidance as to some of the possible parameters for my spiritual questing for the coming year. I used the Camelot Oracle tarot cards again,. I felt that this would give me a a link to the past – a semblance of stability, similarity, and continuity. I am still in recovery from Kal’s demise, so in addition to the deck’s familiarity it gives a firm link with place by having a fixed layout for the cards to be placed upon. I felt l needed that fixed quality, that link with Albion, and the Earth. Here were the eight cards drawn for each of the Celtic points of the year, and the one to represent the characteristic of the year too. I was going to offer a provisional full...

Interpreting the Tarot for the Year 2015

Interpreting the Tarot for the Year 2015

At this quiet time of the year posts relating to outings are few and far between. So, in lieu of new work here’s the final part of my summary of the year. In this post I will make an attempt to interpret the tarot reading that I did at the start of 2015, and see how that relates to what actually happened during the year. Interpreting the Tarot for the Year 2015 The tarot for the year covered the eight significant yearly dates of Festivals, Equinoxes and Solstices. The draw was:- Imbolc – Bors at The Wells Bors is a signifier of the adventuring spirit which returns back home having achieved his aims, and being satisfied with that. Very much the epitome of Kal this year. Did some work with death-eating skills, got a dread feeling, and then visited...
