Summary 2013 – Lessons Learned Pt1

In the second of my year-end summary posts I am listing the most important things I have learned this year. I’ve arranged them in chronological order by month as this seems to show the development of the learning in the best way. There’s too much to read in one go, so I’ve split this into two posts. Part 1 is January to June/July. Part 2 will be the back half of the year. One of my favourite phrases is “Every day is a school day.” It certainly feels like that walking this path of druidry and divination! January Spooky! Learned that some pet energies can be grounded through respectful burial involving knowledge of their energetic links to humans (e.g. an owner) Also found a spirit that is classically called an Incubus preying upon the...

Summer Solstice 2013 p10 Glastonbury – Closing the spiral at the Chalice Wells

With learning that we didn’t have to go 50 miles out of our to get ‘the crystal’ we decided to head for Glastonbury to visit the fabulous Chalice Wells. The night had been unkind to Gwas (see his post) and the mood was a good deal sombre that normal. In the car I noted that Gwas was pilfering every bit of available energy, so protection was definitely required. As the saying goes, “when you got to go, you got to go” and so it was with Gwas’s energy. It wasn’t that he was intentionally pinching it. It was the natural gravity of energy seeking to balance its environment. Missing tree There were no stop-offs this time. We were eager to get to Glastonbury and then home. Both of us felt that our tasks for the pilgrimage had...

Solstice 2013 – Boscawen Un – A Switch of Staves

We started our Cornwall adventure on a sunny Summer Solstice morning by visiting the last stone circle of these Albion islands – Boscawen Un. Having just come from Glastonbury where I had been given the task of engineering a meeting with a faery I was eager to find out whether the next few sites would reveal any more information about this new quest. Bodmin Moor had then supplemented this concept – I found out that I could use water as a means of moving between this reality and The Otherworld. That was very promising too. As we walked down the long secluded path towards Boscawen Un stone circle the air was humid and pungent with the aroma of foliage and flora bursting into full bloom and throbbing with chlorophyllic life. At this time of year the path...

Solstice 2013 – Glastonbury’s Faery Portal

I had just discovered a fascinating energy formation that was created by the four energy polarities which were symbolised by four Arthurian characters. The walk from Glastonbury Abbey to the base of The Tor was full of anticipation about what might happen next. This was only supposed to be a prelude to a weekend in Cornwall, but already it was shaping up to reveal some fascinating insights into work done this year. There was more to come in that respect, but for the moment let’s return to The Tor. There are tales associated with The Tor – Ynys Witrin – The Glass Isle. It is said to be a portal into the world of Faery – that unseen yet co-present dimension of sentient energies which inhabit the same space as our physical world, but which we...

Solstice 2013 – Glastonbury Abbey and the Arthurian Energies

For the Summer Solstice this year Kal and I went out for a long weekend to Cornwall. On the way there and back we managed to visit Glastonbury. I used to think of Glastonbury as the ideal place for spending the solstice, but in recent years the attraction had worn off. However, on Kal’s suggestion we added the town to our list, and I booked us a stay in a hotel in nearby Taunton to give us the maximum amount of time in Glastonbury given that our true destination was still hundreds of miles further down to the south and west of the country. From ‘Arthurian’ to ‘Zoe’ As is usual Kal and I split up to do our separate searches of the site. My goal was to see whether there were any remnant energies in the abbey grounds that I could...
