This sort of Christmas reading could completely change your life!

This festive holiday season might be a good time to get started on the Mysteries. By ‘Mysteries’, I don’t mean a detective story that just spins you round and round in your thinking for no good reason. I mean the Mysteries with a capital “M”. Until recent decades, these Mystery Teachings were jealously guarded and…

The path to spiritual enlightenment through the Mystery teachings and sacred sex magic

Imagine my unabated joy when I discovered that there was a real, live shaman woman in Glastonbury who’d written the words my heart so yearned to hear! In giving me the permission that I needed to start thinking of my spirituality in a very different way, she quite literally changed my life.

Shine on, you crazy diamond – unravelling the metaphors of Time

I’ve been realising recently that the design of the chequerboard floor of the Freemasonic lodge does not consist of black and white squares but black and white diamonds. You just have to skew it slightly to see this. It was confirmed to me yesterday when a dowser friend sent me a photo of the design…

The Desecration of the Divine Feminine

If only the desecration of the Divine Feminine had happened just last week … or even a mere few generations ago; it would have been much more recoverable then. However, it’s going to be a long, slow process towards its reconstitution because its ruination is rooted in the ignorance of Dark Ages thinking about the…

Why knowing how to spell Pinocchio is vital to understanding the Mystery teachings

Our prime minister’s father, Stanley Johnson, caused some media outrage the other day when he said in a television interview that most of the British public wouldn’t know how to spell Pinocchio. I don’t think, however, it was a form of arrogant, out-of-touch elitism, as was claimed, because I also didn’t know how to spell…

Thanksgiving and the Magic of the Dragon Clans

The convenient myth is that the American Founding Fathers were Deists and that the New World pilgrims first learned about the ceremony of Thanksgiving from Native Americans. The inconvenient truth is that the Founding Fathers were the offspring of the mystically-inclined Dragon Clans who, in the 17th century, were hounded out of Britain in a…

The Magical and Divine Sacrament of Marriage

The title of this article may seem anachronistic in an age in which we can just pop down to the registry office to tie the knot, or go to the other extreme and use it as an excuse to put on a lavishly extragavant event on some far flung sun-kissed beach that most of our…

The Original Mystic Messiah

I am prompted to write this after reading in today’s papers, with some alarm, that a new report from the Church of England is blaming Christians for the anti-semitism that led to the Holocaust. This is how the madness can take hold, once a false trajectory is set and woven into the consensual fabric of…

We CAN be heroes – and for more than one day

Our loss of the wisdom possessed by our earliest ancestors is the reason why we can be ensnared so easily in misunderstandings about our past. When we believe, as we have been schooled to, that man today is the crowning achievement of a creation that has slowly evolved from knuckle-dragging cavemen, it is then a…

A Shaman’s Guide to the Esoteric Mysteries of Avalon

I came to Avalon almost 50 years ago, along the secret Green Road of the Soul, the “Mystic Way that leads through the Hidden Door into a land known only to the eye of vision”, as the 20th century mystic, Dion Fortune, described it. I entered that portal through the first ever Glastonbury Festival of…

The Destination of the Mythological Hero and the Perpetual Choirs

The sole and soul purpose of the journey of the mythological hero is for him to ultimately join the perpetual choirs that are continually and joyously singing the praises of this magnificent creation, the resonance from the song lines of which fertilises and sustains its overarching, magnitudinal majesty. At night, the Moon and the stars…

Ancient Myths are Not Records of History – they are much more valuable than that

I am currently coming up against a widespread misunderstanding that the purpose of myths was to record the ancient history of man. So I thought it would be a good idea to explain my views about the real meaning and thus value of myths, which are not about political history – although they are often…

Sacred Sex Magic and the Sovereignty of Anglo-Saxon Kings

In my last article, I wrote about the protection of the Sovereignty of the Honey Isles, as the British Isles were once known by its bee shamans who understood the alchemico-magical, fertility metaphor of their bees suckling on nectarous apple blossoms. This was a reference to sacred sex magic, an ancient shamanic technique that would…

Wisdom from the Dark Elves and the Light Elves

ROSEMARY TAYLOR is a shamanic practitioner who specialises in the Northern Tradition of the Eddas and Runes. Here she writes about her experiences with the spirits who were known as the Elves in the Old Norse myths. In the Old Norse Eddas, we are told about “Other Places in Heaven”: “There are many magnificent places…

For the Protection of the Honey Isles

It is little remembered because its meaning has been buried under the sands of time, but the British Isles was at one time referred to, by those who spoke the hidden language, as the Isles of Honey. In those slower-paced days, it was a green and pleasant land which was renown for its tangled orchards…

The Mystery Teachings – first steps for beginners

If I was asked to describe exactly what the Mystery Teachings were about in just eight words, I would say: “The Marriage of the Sun and the Moon”. You might wonder why that is such a crucial topic to be understood on the road to wisdom and enlightenment. Well, it’s because the Marriage of the…

The Mystery of the Glastonbury Zodiac

I have been gestating, over the last nine years, a story and a message that the Glastonbury Zodiac has been showing me. The vision was eventually birthed through a combination of studying Katharine Maltwood’s books on the zodiac – a 30-mile round of colossal earthwork giants on the Somerset Levels – and then going on…

Arthur Pendragon’s Real Knights of the Round Table

We are all familiar with the tale of how a wounded King Arthur Pendragon was carried in a boat by Morgan Le Fae to the Land of the Dead in Avalon. But we may not realise that this is just a tiny fragment of a much longer and more ancient wisdom story about how our…

An Esoteric Guide to the Four Holy Hills of Avalon

You will need to understand a little basic magic or alchemy to appreciate the elemental energies that govern a diamond-shaped area of Britain of more than 100 square miles known as Avalon. But don’t worry because it is easy. It’s just about how the four energetic elements – fire, water, earth and air – interact…

Environmentalism is the New Original Sin

Of course it’s a good idea to help protect our environment and Nature, and most of us do our bit. But Man is part of Nature too. And so shouldn’t he or she also be protected from a “green” narrative that is being used to attack humanity in a retread of the original Original Sin,…

Lludd and Llevelys and the Three Plagues of Britain

These days, the knowledge about the power of leylines to direct the Sovereignty and wellbeing of a nation is kept from the general population. But it still remains true that whoever holds the “reins” of the land, reigns over the land. We find information about the lore that has been occulted from us in the…

The Language of the Birds

I found that one of the first innate gifts I developed during my shamanic training was that of pattern recognition. When you’re continually zooming out to go into other worlds, and then zooming back in again, you are able to see the patterning of this world at a glance, and so you can easily follow…

Stories in the Summerlands: A pilgrimage into esoteric Avalon

It is said that when Britain is in the direst peril and needs him the most, King Arthur will arise from his grave and return. We know this because we used to hear rhymes about it while still in the cradle – bardic poems that hail from of an age that Time forgot, when our…
