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...

Meadowsweet, Larks and Loughcrew – Summer 2015 – P1

Meadowsweet, Larks and Loughcrew – Summer 2015 – P1

In the first of my seven Summer Solstice stories I will tell you about how I encountered an ancestral spirit who would work with my Spirit Self to bring about a culmination of my ancestral work on this weekend’s journeying. This was only realised through the two days work, so the stories piece into each other like fragments of a mirror revealing a full picture towards the end. In order to pull all the stories together I have used the tag Ireland solstice 2015. Sunset to Sunrise I was asleep at sunset and then awake again at sunrise. Seems like a long time, but actually it was only a few hours. On arrival, tired by excited, we zoomed off in the hire car heading for the first destination. It was a place I had heard of by reputation, but we hadn’t...

Protection – The Sword and The Stone

Protection – The Sword and The Stone

It’s not every day that you get trained in exorcism. Not that I felt I needed that much training. I have recounted some (but by no means all) of the stories of encounters that I have had with both the more troublesome and ill-intentioned spirits that inhabit the subtle and invisible realms. Regular readers and clients will testify to that. Nevertheless, I was “accompanying a minor”. My wife, M, is learning about energy healing and as a off-shoot, an adjunct and a bolt-on to the course two experienced practitioners, Dan Khan and Mimi McNally, were offering a day’s tuition on Entities, Exorcism and Energetic Protection. It would take place under the banner of The Lightning Path at the Regent’s Park University in London too – a...

Faerie, Spirit, Afterlife and Time

Faerie, Spirit, Afterlife and Time

Come on! Surely that title has got to intrigue you? If you recall from a previous post (Ireland Crows and Bees) I had been given the knowledge on how to access a faerie grove. Specifically, it required a combination of the four elements, three bees and three crows. At that time I thought that such a congruence was very unlikely so I forgot about it, until… I was visiting the grave of my mum (not that I believe in any kind of spiritual connection with the grave nor indeed a shade type connection either, I suspect it’s purely sentimental and there is nothing wrong with that). As I said, I was sat contemplating her absence when a bee buzzed past. It was the first bee that I had consciously recognised this year and I watched with interest as it buzzed...

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...

A Bedroom, Faery and Goddess – p5 Solstice 2014

Okay, this post just shows the dedication with which we report our experiences. Read it quickly because this post will self-destruct in five seconds… Gwas and I had just visited four sacred places on our first afternoon/evening in Ireland. It was the eve of the Summer Solstice (2014) and already we had had enough brilliant experiences to make the trip worth while. I was looking forward to what tomorrow had to bring. From a message today, I knew that it involved my Energy Double which always brings exciting adventures. I was tired, really tired. It had been a long day and I was ready for one of those deep dreamless sleeps. Alas it was not going to be. Just to let you know, I am feeling a bit uncomfortable and have a tinge of a blush as I write this. Type...
