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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

The Occult Meaning of St Martin’s Day and the Seven Sacred Isles of Avalon

Today is St Martin’s Day or Martin Mass. It would have been 1st November, before the Gregorian calendar replaced the Julian one in 1582. Yes, that’s right … it would have been on Samhain, the day of the bone-fires. Today is also Armistice Day – to commemorate the signing of the armistice agreement to mark…

Bringing the healing of stars down to the Earth

I’ve always planted by the phases of the moon – in other words, sowing seeds for flowers and herbs when the moon is waxing, and seeds for root vegetables when the moon is on the wane. There’s nothing New Age about that planting method … any gardener worth his salt knows that this is mighty…

The Deliberate Flooding of the Somerset Levels – Part 2: An attack on the heart of Avalon

I’ve been building up to writing this for days, but holding back too, because I’m not sure if people are ready for it. Just now, I journeyed in the way of shamanic trance to ask the spirits of the Land, to get confirmation, and was told “Yes, it’s true. You’ve been joining up the dots…
