Hip to the Healing

Can you believe it? A short post from me. I know – it must be some kind of miracle. in fact, the experience I’m going to tell you about felt like a miracle at the time. Here’s a story about energy healing. I used to do some martial arts training that I loosely would categorise as Kickboxing. A group of friends at work would gather at lunchtime and we would use pads and gloves to box and kick each other until we felt drained and de-stressed. One day, during a particularly active session, I leapt for a flying kick that completely missed the target and I fell straight onto a wooden floor on my hip. Man, I can’t tell you how much that hurt. Needless to say it was bruised for two weeks and I walked with a limp for even longer. Of course,...

Five healing rays get the Tarot treatment

I needed to know more about the five healing rays that I had identified I would need to learn about in order to learn energetic healing. I had read a book recently about the general principles of energy healing – the book was “The Healing Energy of Your Hands” by Michael Bradford. It had told me many things that I already knew, and I didn’t like his other material, the way he presents himself, or his style. Nevertheless, the book did reveal a few that I didn’t know or hadn’t tried in terms of healing energies, and if nothing else it re-vivified my curiosity to know more about the five healing colour rays or vibrations that I had identified previously through the tarot. Maybe the tarot could again be of assistance in revealing...

Remote dreaming at Lud’s Church

Often Kal and I time our visits to meet the requirements of whether the ‘sacred date’ (of the Celtic Year) comes closest to a Full Moon or a New Moon. One such visit coincided with a New Moon on July 30th. This coincided with the Lammas (or Lughnasagh) Festival. We decided that a visit to Lud’s Church in Staffordshire would be the best option because it combined Kal’s wish to see the place with the idea of going to a place “underground” to coincide with the new moon energies. Our hope was that this coincidence would be good for allowing visions and getting answers to questions. We did a hasty jaunt out to the Staffordshire and Derbyshire border, very close to the Macclesfield Forest. I went via a route that I didn’t...

Autumn Equinox 1 – Llyn Brenig

Thursday 23rd September – Llyn Brenig, North Wales. We had tried to get to see some of the megalithic sites around Llyn Brenig once before. At that time we didn’t have the same amount of clever GPS devices, or the same availability of mapping software (or paper maps). Or we didn’t prepare well enough. Either way, we spent a cold long trek through dismal pine forest tracks looking for non-existent sites last time. This time we got it right. We found our way (only one missed junction) to the start of the Architectural Trail from the northern car park. Within seconds of parking the car we were stood atop a tumulus. Within easy reach from there was a wall denoting the remains of a roundhouse, similar to the one we had seen up on Car Top near...

Dowth: Place of Integration

Sunday 29th May – Dowth, Boyne Valley, County Meath. Dowth (“The Place of Darkness”) is the lesser-visited site of the three famous megalithic structures in the Boyne Valley complex. It is less visited because there is no convenient bus taking tourists to the site, and instead intrepid visitors have to walk the mile or so from the bus terminus, or a mile and a half from the Knowth site, in order to reach it. Luckily for us this late May day was about as beautiful and sunny as May days get, and so we walked along the blooming hawthorn-lined lanes in utter delight. Some days it pays to be a (would-be) druid. When we arrived at Dowth we had the place to ourselves with the exception of a solitary photographer who busied himself with setting up some...
