Summer 2015 – P7 – The Light of Brighid

Summer 2015 – P7 – The Light of Brighid

In the last of my Summer Solstice posts (can you believe we’ve generated so much from one weekend?) we are taken on an escorted tour of a sacred site. We have left David at Fourknocks, but Regina has stayed with us to show us one more site: The Shrine of Brigid at Faughart. We arrived at the shrine site and parked alongside a bus and another car. Throughout the period we visited the car park would get busier, and the site more populous. Regina mentioned that most of the visitors were from the traveller community. The site was quite unusual – a mixture of ancient stones with healing properties and a clutter of modern …. stuff… that seemed to be aimed at… er, informing the visitor and guiding them on their sacred journey in praise of...

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...

Time is an illusion – Spring Equinox 2014 – 4 of 5

It’s complicated. Whenever I think about relativity my brain starts to cook. I don’t mind being mentally inept when it comes to understanding temporal mechanics, after all it stumps the best scientists too. Gwas and I had arrived at a sacred site called Long Meg, but this wasn’t the place of interest. Instead we had learned that there were some caves along the side of a river. So off we trekked through mud and wood. At some point we got turned about and ended up on a much longer trek than we had anticipated. It didn’t dampen our quest however. As is often dictated, the toil of the journey is equal to the reward received at its conclusion. In a previous post I mentioned that my Energetic Self had dropped (aligned) in and announced that it...

Summary of the Year 2013 – P3 – Loose Threads

Like a greased eel this post nearly slipped out of my grasp. It’s March 2014 and before the Spring Equinox launches me off into an orbit of seemingly never-ending work I thought it would be a good point to mention the “almost rans” of the last year – those aspects of my work which seemed random, inexplicable, and without any obvious annual resolution. Of course, in this game, some spirals are larger than it’s possible to perceive and things come around on a very long trajectory, like a kind of Planet X. I’m sure you will find these loose threads fascinating, but they also act as markers for events and information that might become important in the following years too. I document them here as a reminder of what might be built...

Lammas Part 2 Secret Gardens

The thing about a sacred life is that many of the experiences are emotionally touching. Often however they give rise to intellectual challenges too. The experience below is one that did both. It began with Gwas’s map. We had arrived at some beach (can’t tell you were, it’s a secret). I followed Gwas along the shore and then up above to the (not very high) cliffs. At one point he stopped to consider something on his phone. It was at this point that I was informed that we were following some directions he had been given. So it was that we followed a trail along paths, across bridges and up hills until we arrived at our destination. Signs are important, whether they are of the esoteric or the mundane kind. So we took due notice of the one that was...
