There is a tide in the affairs of men … and sometimes there is a flood!
The political parties of this country have not represented the people for a long time – possibly decades. They have just been different flavours of the EU ice cream – Brussels Lite, Brussels Vanilla and Brussels Tutti Frutti. So the effect of our vote to Leave the EU on 23rd June was the equivalent of chucking a bowling ball at a row of skittles – and they are all now falling over in a pandemonium of constitutional crises and votes of no confidence.
It can make you feel quite dizzy, especially if you’d assumed that all you had to do was to put a cross in a box, and we would be out of the EU.
It hasn’t been that way …
First we lost Nigel, then Boris, then Gove … and now Andrea has gone. But how much of a tragedy are their departures really for the Leave campaign, or for Brexit in general? Not much, I believe, because from where I’m sitting, Brexit was never so much about the people leading the Leave campaign as it was about reclaiming the basic principle of Sovereignty.
Because of my personal long-term interests in reclaiming Sovereignty, as a spiritual source of power, I’d started my own Leave campaign long before Boris took the helm, or Gove … and Leadsom was just a twinkle then in the firmament of the Remainstream media’s Balor gaze. In fact, I started my shamanic work on Sovereignty years ago, and I explain all about how that came about, and how it works, in my book Reclaiming Sovereignty.
And so this was why, when each of these Leave leaders was foisted upon us, at the beginning of this year, I took some interest, but not really enough to cause me to break stride. I was always fairly equivocal when anyone asked me which one I’d support for PM. I don’t mind Boris – I used to work with him, on the foreign desk of The Times – but I didn’t see him as a potential prime minister. Gove, I thought, was very clever – but he turned out to be just a bit too clever in the end.
I did like Leadsom, not least because of the one thing that felled her: I thought she had great potential to lead the Tories, and the country through Brexit, because she had the real world life experience that was possessed by none of the other candidates. In my opinion, if you can raise three children and hold down a high powered City job, that should surely count for something on your CV? But not so, it seems, to the grimly mechanistic, cultural marxist-influenced metro-elite of Europe today, where most female political leaders – Merkel, Sturgeon, May, Eagle, Davidson, Bennett – are either childless or gay, or both, and I got monstered on Twitter by the social justice warriors for even daring to mention it.
Anyway, it sadly turned out that Andrea didn’t have the strength to withstand the brutality of the full-on attack of the nasty Tory boys. They were intent on getting their ReMayn candidate installed and crowned before the Conservatives grassroots members had the chance to vote otherwise, which they would have done, by all accounts, in droves. But hey-ho, in the greater scheme of things, it doesn’t really matter that much to me, and here’s why.
The spirit of Sovereignty is bursting out from the land now, and not just here but right across the Continent as more and more people in European countries start thinking about leaving the European Union. Ireland is the most recent one to declare an interest in having a referendum. Holland, Hungary and Austria are not much further behind. In addition, the borders are going up all over Europe, meaning the end of the Schengen Zone of free movement of people.
So it seems to me that we are witnessing a real grass roots revolution in human consciousness which is so powerful that, no matter the twists and turns – and there will be many – this force will eventually prevail. Whoever finally gets to be the leader of the British Tory party and prime minister of Britain, she will be no more able to stop this potent force from unfolding than she could a volcano exploding. In fact, her challenge will be to run to stay up with it, or be subsumed by it.
As Shakespeare has Brutus say in his Julius Caesar:
There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.
The current is now beginning to turn. But at first, it will appear more like a meandering river.
In other words, there will be twists and turns because there has to be for progress to be made. Forward motion of this kind, in Nature, never runs in a straight line from A to B. Rather it snakes its way forward in a kind of zig-zag fashion, as it meanders across the landscape. This serpentine wriggling is what gives this force its strength, its endurance and its longevity, long after all the echoing shouts of those feverishly jockeying for leadership in Westminster have faded.
This is why it’s also not a good idea to try to micro-manage the progress of Brexit, or to white-knuckle grasp the steering wheel of world events, to try to push them in the way that we think they should go. If we’re trying to turn the snake right, when it’s already been going right and now wants to turn left, not only will this not help progress, but it will hinder it – and you may well end up getting a poisonous bite!
Instead, I believe – if you’re interested in following the shaman’s approach – we should turn our attention and meditations on to the Moon, for it is She, in her etheric form, that governs the tides of the seas and the tides of man; she also is the governor of fertility through the female menstrual tides.
This is her song…
I am the star that rises from the sea,
The twilight sea.
I bring men dreams that rule their destiny.
I bring the dream-tides to the souls of men;
The tides that ebb and flow and ebb again,
These are my secret, these belong to me.
Dion Fortune (1890-1946)
You can read a lot more about moon magic, and how to work shamanically with sovereignty in my book.
Shamanic Earth Magic
When the people of Britain voted to leave the European Union in June 2016, the word on everyone’s lips was Sovereignty.
But what is Sovereignty?
There were some who tried to convince the British people that Sovereignty didn’t really exist, or that if it did, it was over-rated. A few self-styled experts claimed that Sovereignty could be extended or pooled; others insisted that Sovereignty was merely “the ability to get things done.”
All of those pundits were wrong – although they were hardly to blame for their errors. Sovereignty actually starts off life as a spiritual transmission from the spirits of the land, but this is no longer taught to the general populace.
However, a few mystic types did know about Sovereignty, and so they weren’t at all surprised when its spirit rose up from the land on the Summer Solstice of 2016, and infused the hearts and minds of the ordinary people of Britain.
In this book, Reclaiming Sovereignty, you will learn all about the spiritual source of Sovereignty – and how to find it and reclaim it in your own life and on your own land.
