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...

The Crutch of Orthodoxy

You know a post is serious when there are no pictures! In this post I offer an explanation of how to construct your own theology no less! If you are interested in the foundations of paganism, then read on. We frequently get requests from people who know we write a blog. They say things like, “..but how did you know to do this, that or the other?“.  These people are looking for guidance, and we are more than happy to offer our experiences up for them to consider. Yet some people want to go further. They say things like: “How do you do this, that or the other?“. These are requests for orthodox teachings. Here are my opinions on the relative merits of oxthodoxy on a seeker’s path. Following The Rules Orthodoxy essentially means...

What I learned from crop circles – Part 2

In the previous companion post to this one (Part 1) I talked about the death of crop circles in 2013, and how the prediction of that phenomenon was one of the major markers on my wayfaring through the magickal world I now inhabit. In the follow up I will be talking about the ways in which crop circles added to my druid work. This year has been a testing year in many ways. One of the elements of travelling The Doubtful Path, that was indicated for me in a tarot draw at the start of the year, is that it is necessary to re-visit and recapitulate elements of wonder that have been encountered, and to consider what these things mean to you as you proceed. So it is with crop circles. I certainly don’t celebrate the death of the crop circle. Even though it was an...

Cloak of the Green Man

It was shortly after the visit to Dinas Bran in Llangollen that an opportunity arose to visit the old Llangernyw Yew tree near Conwy. Of course the weather reports said “rain” so we planned for sun. It was sunny. The shadows were lengthening at the end of the day, but the temperature was still warm. Always handy if you’re walking through a graveyard because it keep the chill of the shades off you! I was here to try to learn something more about my new yew staff which I had recently acquired in Glastonbury, and which had just been “initiated” (charged up) at Dinas Bran. Now I wanted to know about the energy that it now contained – was there a spirit form associated with it (as there had been for my previous staff – the ash...

The Arthurian Earth Energies

In early June Kal and I visited The Druid’s Circle at Penmaenmawr near Conwy. We arrived there in time for sunset, and the western skies filled out with ever-deepening shades of red until the whole sky turned inky-blue as the sun retreated beneath the sea. Before the light around us completely faded I had some work to do. I was here to try to find out more about my spirit guide who was relatively new to me. My previous guide Theodora had been unfathomable, but honestly I had stopped trying to know more at the first hurdle, not wanting to upset her. Now I had Ash, and he seemed more amenable, so I felt it was incumbent upon me to make the effort to forge a strong relationship that could be mutually beneficial. With that in mind I made my way towards the...
