Spring Dowsing 2016 – The Energetic Henge

Spring Dowsing 2016 – The Energetic Henge

Recently I attended the British Society of Dowsers‘ Spring Symposium in Worcester. It was an all-weekend affair, but having seen the line-up I decided that I would go down for the Sunday only. I decided not to book onto any of the courses in advance, but to wait to see what happened when I got there. That’s just the way I do things sometimes. I checked into the wonderful Pitmaston House on the Saturday evening, and spent the night walking around Worcester, getting a feel for the place. It was mainly very nice, but it definitely had a darker side to it if you looked closely. Which British town doesn’t? I was soon crowded out by the noisy Saturday night drinking/bawling crowd and made my way back to the hotel for a good night’s sleep in the...

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...

Further the Re-Wilding

Further the Re-Wilding

I recently took part in some extra-curricular meditating. It’s the best kind. During one of my Nature meditation groups one of the participants had once though she saw a door outlined in a rock face as she was meditating. The ace meditation teacher John David Kirby [Facebook page] had been really taken by this idea, and had suggested that anyone interested in doing a meditation on “The Portal” should hang around after out meditation session and we could explore this potential way into The Otherworld. So we arranged to do that. Out of the group, there were four of us who stayed for the meditation, and coincidentally it was on the evening of a full moon. What’s through…The Arched Window? We lit a small controlled fire to take the chill...

Energy in the Tombs – Egypt 12

Energy in the Tombs – Egypt 12

In true Indian Jones style here is a lost post from my visit to Egypt at the end of 2014. As you can see it is enumerated as 12 thus you can go to this link to see all of my other escapades from that adventure. The Valley of the Kings has an awesome title but as far as the external view goes…it’s a valley. Behind the walls of the valley however are numerous tombs to the afore-mentioned kings. Having visited the place, for me at least, it was nothing to write home about. The tombs are pretty much the same (of course I have a rather coarse view, I’m sure an Egyptologist would shoot me down). The authorities have wonderful rules over there, like no photographs, no note taking, no phones even. And since yours truly visited, no dowsing (see above...

Time Space Place Presence Intention

Time Space Place Presence Intention

A simple question often leads to a complex answer. So it was in this instance. A couple of friends and I had the opportunity to watch a film called Oui-Ja. It wasn’t my idea, quite the opposite. However I bowed to the majority and so found myself suffering through another Hollywood attempt at depicting the para-normal. Now, apart from all this hedge druid nonsense (or should I say Edge Wizardry?) I had and have a propensity for delving rather deeply into the nooks and crannies of the world of the Paranormal. In fact it is an interest that has plagued me for most of my life. So it wasn’t a surprise when the conversation turned to the validity and usage of Oui-Ja boards. Herein I have discoursed on the matter before (hedge druids and ouija) However...

New Moon, Wizards and Goddesses

New Moon, Wizards and Goddesses

Lunacy is a word that I agree with in that a full moon drives it crazy. So a new moon has quite the opposite effect on me. Yesterday was one such evening and I was in a mind to travel to the Wizards wood, namely Alderley Edge. I arrived whilst it was still light and headed into the forest. Minutes later I was at the huge Beech tree. Sitting within its eaves I opened myself up to commune. Or rather I wondered about the ability to commune with a goddess I’m in good stead with. A thought entered my mind. Could I summon one Caileach? I know, a terrible thought and a very dangerous one. Asking the dowsing rods got me a very surprising Yes. What? I could summon Caileach? Shock! Could, yes, but should? Probably not. Fortunately that decision was taking out of my...
