Imbolc 2012 Part 3 Lud’s church

Luds Church Entrance

As told in part two, the Green Knight who seemed to be laying out the path I should follow had got me to Luds Church and then vanished (no, not in a puff of smoke). So I was left sitting in the near zero temperature outside the steps that led to Luds Church. How was I to prepare myself? For what kind of encounter? Protection? Cleansing? (No, that I had already done). What then? I pondered this as Gwas and Mike came up and began their work.

Some intuitive dowsing concluded that all I needed was to light a few sticks of incense, clear my mind of distractions and step into the green gorge. Last I was here was at sunset with a ground that was slippery and treacherous. This time was completely different, it was dry, sunny and fresh. All the ingredients of Imbolc.

With no hurry I mad my way through the gorge open to revelation and intuition. My footsteps seemed guided as I was led around and over some of the muddier patches (A good sign for me as I often end up with wet feet). At one point the rod twirled in my hand and I stopped. Was I supposed to meditate here? Yes. I leant against the wall of the gorge and closed my eyes.

My thoughts were on the knights quest. Was that quest over? Did I succeed or fail? Was I to continue on it. With simple flashes of insight I was shown that my quest was nearing completion but required a pilgrimage from south to north. I was also told that I had this one chance to complete this quest for knighthood. You may wonder how I was shown this, well an image and thought was brought to mind. That of a recent story in the paper about a knight being stripped of his knighthood. Warning heeded!

With these rather glad (and hopeful) tidings I continued on through the church. Near the other side of the gorge I was directed upwards and out into a snow-covered glade. It immediately reminded me of a scene from the old Kung Fu TV series where Cain, having received the burning Tiger and Dragon tattoos falls upon fresh cold snow.

 I felt the need to do another meditation and stood in silence by the exit with the snow in front of me. It was here that I got another profound image and message. The message was simply…

  • Bring wisdom from the dark and share it in the light”

With this message I also had a vision of the Tarot Hermit Card upside down. This seemed to conclude my experiences at Lud’s church for that day at least. So much so that I was not allowed to return in and look for Gwas and Mike.

Wise words

The goal in Druidry, and hence in meditation for Druids, is to enhance our engagement with our embodied life, not to distance or separate ourselves from it.
