The Perfumed City Spring

The Perfumed City Spring

You never know when an exciting opportunity might arise. I was in Liverpool with M seeing a film at Picturehouse – a small cinema complex in the FACT building in the centre of the town. The film was “Mad To Be Normal” – a biopic of the radical psychiatrist R.D.Laing, played by David Tennant. The film was excellent, and we came out of the cinema on a real high, so to speak. Then we met our friend John Kirby who had also been at the screening. We had a chat about the film, and it was one of those occasions where you don’t want the experience to end. John mentioned that he had recently been to the sacred spring next to Liverpool Cathedral, and had we been. I had heard him mention it before, but had never been either to the spring or to...

Solving car trouble the energetic way

For the last five years I’ve driven a silver Honda Accord. I loved that car. It has taken me all over the country and never failed in its job of providing comfort, security, safety and transport. Alas a couple of weeks ago someone slammed into the door and caused enough damage for it to written off by the insurers. Prologue… I had just driven home from spending the night at a friends. we had talked late into the night and I was, as they say, dog tired. As I got to my rooms my thoughts were on a long resting sleep (it was Saturday) However a friends text caught my attention and I replied that I would meet him in 30 minutes for a catch-up and coffee. “Why did I do that?” I asked myself as I got changed and attempted to freshen up. I picked...

Energy restoration at Djoser pyramid – Egypt 5

Energy restoration at Djoser pyramid – Egypt 5

It was my third day in Cairo and I had decided to chill. Well, the order had come from on high, in the form of a text from Chris…”Chill out, have a beer”… He knows only too well that I don’t do chilling very well. Still, I decided that today would be a day of nil energy work. Maybe I would take in the Cairo museum? I finished a late breakfast and sat in the sun, looking out over the Nile, perfect. Twenty minutes later, I was bored. As I said, I don’t do “chill” well, even when it is like this. The resort I was staying in had a kind of menu of options sand taxi prices. It began with the pyramids and ended with souks. The staff at the resort had got used to my dowsing rods by now, so the concierge only gave an...

Who is Gwas? All is revealed!

Who is Gwas? All is revealed!

Ladies and Gentlemen – the time has come. If you have been following this blog for any amount of time then you will be familiar with a character called Gwas. Over the years you will have witnessed his journey from a fledgling dowser and druid. Where has Gwas ended up at this point, though? Gwas ended up being an experienced druid. His daily practices and regular outings to sacred sites became more than a serious hobby, and became his life. His experiences with Otherworldly intelligences took him from being a non-believer through to the opposite end of that spectrum – as someone who could not imagine how life could be fully experienced and enjoyed without the interactions with spirits. As part of Gwas’s spiritual guidance recently he was told...

Time is an illusion – Spring Equinox 2014 – 4 of 5

It’s complicated. Whenever I think about relativity my brain starts to cook. I don’t mind being mentally inept when it comes to understanding temporal mechanics, after all it stumps the best scientists too. Gwas and I had arrived at a sacred site called Long Meg, but this wasn’t the place of interest. Instead we had learned that there were some caves along the side of a river. So off we trekked through mud and wood. At some point we got turned about and ended up on a much longer trek than we had anticipated. It didn’t dampen our quest however. As is often dictated, the toil of the journey is equal to the reward received at its conclusion. In a previous post I mentioned that my Energetic Self had dropped (aligned) in and announced that it...

Lammas Part 2 Secret Gardens

The thing about a sacred life is that many of the experiences are emotionally touching. Often however they give rise to intellectual challenges too. The experience below is one that did both. It began with Gwas’s map. We had arrived at some beach (can’t tell you were, it’s a secret). I followed Gwas along the shore and then up above to the (not very high) cliffs. At one point he stopped to consider something on his phone. It was at this point that I was informed that we were following some directions he had been given. So it was that we followed a trail along paths, across bridges and up hills until we arrived at our destination. Signs are important, whether they are of the esoteric or the mundane kind. So we took due notice of the one that was...
