The Wye Connection 

The Wye Connection 

I cannot now tell you what prompted me to choose this destination. I think I was looking for a dolmen that I had not been to before, and which was within 2 hours drive of home. I think I narrowed the search down to the county of Powys in Wales, but as this is a huge county that wasn’t much of a narrowing! What resulted was this nice-looking dolmen structure about two hours away. That was as much thinking as went into the decision. I set myself a destination of the nearest town – Rhayader. I noticed, with interest, that the general area was close to the River Wye. That is a river that holds a particular fascination for me, and I have no idea why. I love the Wye Valley, Monmouthshire, that Powys region – the whole thing about it. I was about to...

Creating a meditation space

Creating a meditation space

I am now in the second round of my set of 21 free nature-themed outdoor meditations. I had taken a break in May in order to take stock of what we had accomplished already, and to see who wanted to go around the cycle again with me.  I was heartened by the feedback on the Spirit In Nature Meetup group and I decided to restart the meditations in June. I had one important change to make: the location. I needed a new space to work in. Towards the end of the previous sessions we had been interrupted by dogs, walkers, kids playing and climbers, not to mention having to clear up the detritus of people who used the space as a party venue. There was too much activity in the large open quarry, and something no longer felt “right” about the place as a space for...

Element of air

Air, the final element I am sure for the right person Florence is a beautiful place to visit. Galleries, museums, cafes, water-fronts and much more is at the tips of tourist fingers. However as a choice of places to visit, it wouldn’t be on my list, or at least not very high. As a side note, I would love to visit the place with someone who is an art fan (sic). Yet, here I was on the train to Florence. The answer to the question that is begging to be asked, namely, “Why?” The answer is always complicated isn’t it. In this instance because of a vision that I had some months back. Now, as readers will know, I am on a quest to obtain four elements. Each had to be obtained in a different country. Other posts detail the acquisition of Earth,...

Hermits, Bananas and a Dark Angel – Spring Equinox 4

Hermits, Bananas and a Dark Angel – Spring Equinox 4

Hermits The equinox was progressing nicely. We had left home around 6:30am and it was approaching 3 in the afternoon when we arrived at our last (or so we thought) stop of the day. The Hermits Cave is unsurprisingly in the Hermits Wood. It is about half a mile from the road and the walk is easy and pleasant. Upon arriving I asked whether there was anything for me to learn and/or do here. The answer to both questions was a yes. First things first. Food! I put my bag down and searched it for food. At the same time I brought out the smokey quartz crystal to show Chris. It had been the one that I had connected to the health monitor energy at the Hemlock Stone earlier that day. I placed the crystal in the window of the cave whilst I ate lunch. Also, whilst eating...

The Energy of Prayer 2 of 3

The Energy of Prayer 2 of 3

In my previous post here I gave an outline of the energy that I had found in Laila (and her husbands) home. What was puzzling to me was that in the guest bedroom there was a predominance of positive energies. In fact 3/5ths of the positive energy was in that room. More curious they were in a rather innocuous place on the floor next to the bed. You know, I don’t think I have ever been on a house dowse where I have not learned something new. Every home has a story to tell and each story varies in its layout, telling and (since that is what I am there for) in its changing or transformation. Having learned something of the layout I decided to bring this knowledge to the owner and query what it could mean. I want you to notice my modus operandi since it has been...

The Resonance of Caileach

The Resonance of Caileach

Honestly, our adventures surprise us on a daily basis. From one synchronicity and strange occurrence do we wander. Seemingly aimless and yet specifically guided. We had spent considerable time looking for the Church of St Michael prior to our time at Arthur’s Well without success and then literally a few minutes after leaving that place we drive right past the church. Of course! It is a coincidence. Alighting, we wandered into the grounds of the church. It was meant to be! As per usual, we separated out and followed our rods. I was led to a flat table like gravestone with the sun falling upon it. I looked out across the graves towards the sun and pondered being here. I was about to ask whether this place forded some knowledge from me or indeed whether I...
