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…

Mary of Fatima’s message to the world is coming true

Over a series of three days in 1917, Mary, mother of Jesus, reportedly appeared in the skies over Fatima in Portugal. There were apparently three children who saw her and who said that, over a period of several months, Mary revealed to them three secrets, only two of which have been released in full by…

Is Sacred Sex Magic Still Relevant in the 21st Century?

A friend asked me this question, in relation to me bringing out the second edition of my book, The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar. My feeling is that it has never been more relevant if we are to recover and unravel the mysteries of the true magical force that is innately available to every human…

Where Sovereignty really comes from

The kings of old would undergo Sovereignty rites similar to the horse sacrifice of the Celts on their coronation day. That evening, they would lie with a cuen, which is the Anglo Saxon source of our word “queen”. The cuen would be a shaman skilled in evoking and awakening the two energetic serpents which, during…

Nature spirits, bee shamans and ‘shrooms

You will be already familiar with nature spirits from illustrations of tiny fairies and pixies sitting on toadstools and mushrooms. You may not have realised, though, that there is a hidden message in these works of art. It is a metaphor for our true Elders, the Underlords and the Overlords of the green mantle of…

A Guide to the Faeries of Avalon

There are almost as many names for faeries in these parts as there are stories about them, courtesy of the exiled Irish and Welsh whose memories still remain like holographic movies hovering in the morphogenic fields of the land they left behind. To the Irish, the faeries are known as the Tuatha da Danaan, and…

Gwyn ap Nudd – guide of souls into the afterlife

I have been where the warriors of Britain were slain, From the east to the north: I am the escort of the grave. I have been where the warriors of Britain were slain, From the east to the south: I am the escort of the dead! * While the faery midwife Brigit the Bright One‘s…

Brigid the Bright One, the Sleeping Beauty and the Hollow Hills

In the old faery lore of Wessex, Brigid is the beautiful woman sleeping and dreaming under the green mantle of the Hollow Hills where she is protected by a briar rose thorn thicket, and she will only awaken when the Three Utterances — man, animal and faery — come together in Harmony and Love to…

The feeding of the 5,000 at the Sermon on the Mount – decoded

The subject of Christian mysticism is one that has always me fascinated me. Here is an extract from my latest book, Stories in the Summerlands, in which I decode the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand, and in which I find allegories for important astrological and alchemical processes.

The importance of unicorns to Sovereignty

I saw Alastair Campbell on Nigel Farage’s LBC show on Sunday, sporting a t-shirt emblazoned with the word “Reality” and haranguing Leave voters that they’re just fantasists who believe in unicorns. “Unicorn” seems to be their latest buzzword. Peter Mandelson used it again on Radio 4, this morning, as he explained that we didn’t know…

Why the Mother of All Parliaments is Sovereign

The People are Sovereign. They are intrinsically Sovereign through their connection, in their Rivers of Blood or DNA, to the Ancestors in the Otherworlds. The portals between these Worlds are opened and closed by the gatekeepers, the Fae, in cooperation with shamans that are entrusted with this sacred work on the Land. The People, in…

True Easter or Oestre – why Spring is “early” this year

Down here in Somerset, many of the birds are pairing and nesting, while the creamy curds of the May blossoms are already out on the boughs on the faery thorns. People are happily chirping away about the joys of an early Spring. However, that the season should be “early” is no random coincidence. If the…

The Near Death Experience and the Ecstasy of the Heart

We are all familiar now with the famous Tunnel that we’ve heard about from those who have returned from the Realms of the Dead and recounted to us their near death experiences. But another common factor in these accounts, and yet one that is little reported, is the overwhelmingly ecstatic feeling of love that surrounds…

St Cuthbert and the Spirit of Sovereignty

The magic of the Sovereignty of the Land has long been hidden from us by many means, screens and schemes, and one way of preventing us from dis-covering it has been to change the meaning of words. For instance, let us consider the word ‘history’. ‘History’ actually comes from the 12th century Norman ‘histoire’, which…

Quicksilver Messenger Service – the hidden messages in medieval and Renaissance art

Once we understand the codes in the great masterpieces preserved in the churches, abbeys and cathedrals, then it becomes clear that these symbols are a series of still-life tableaus forming a narrative about the alchemical process of the transformation of metals, with ourselves as the crude lead. Each metal is assigned a god or goddess…

Where do we go when all the stories fail?

Where do we go when all the stories fail? All the stories are failing. Fewer and fewer want to go and sit in big, draughty buildings with high ceilings – no matter how beautifully fan-vaulted – to hear them anymore. The picture below shows the purpose-made wooden pews of the 12th century church of St…

A Faery Christmas from the Vale of Avalon

To the Druids, long before Christianity, Christmas was about the Birth of the Faery Babe, or Radiant Child. This is the story that I see being played out what other people call the Glastonbury Zodiac on the Somerset Levels, a 10-mile wide circular landscape temple where the “stars have fallen to the Earth” to create…

A Winter Solstice Tale

Tonight, we enter the Winter Solstice in the sign of Capricorn. To me, this is such a beautiful time when there are unique energies at play from the “Christmas spirits” that can heal the emotional despair and suffering accrued during the previous thirteen moons, and send rejuvenation, fresh hope and inspiration for the coming turn…
