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…

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…

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…

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 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…

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…

The Occult Cause of the Madonna/Whore Complex

The Roman Catholic Church has spent a lot of time arguing over whether Mary Magdalene really was a prostitute. I can tell them that she was, but that her mythic character was developed from the honoured tradition of the sacred whore whose role is vital in producing the avatar of the age. Unfortunately, though, because…

The Grail Mysteries: the real, symbolic meaning of the Holy Grail

I was keen to use this picture of a real, beautifully-gilded chalice for the cover of The Grail Mysteries because just this one image captures the totality of the symbolic meaning of the Holy Grail.

The trashing of the symbols of love

The painting below is of St Andrew being crucified on an X-shaped cross. The Scots will recognise the X-shape as the St Andrew’s Cross as it appears on their blue-and-white flag. But to those who understand the hidden language of alchemical love and sex magic, it is known as the saltire cross. This is why…

The Deluge and the Deep State

  In putting together my chapter on the symbolic meaning of numbers in ancient myths for the new book, I was going to include this in the section on the number 17, but then changed my mind as I want Stories in the Stars to have a sort of timeless quality and not be pinned…

The Grail Mysteries, Lesson 4: Enchanted Healing at the Gates of Dawn

In the last article, Lesson 3, Forging our own faery sword of truth, we discussed the metaphorical meaning of the Three of Swords, and I used an example from the Fey Tarot in which a male faery is rising from the sea with the dawn breaking just behind him. Dawn is a major character in…

The Grail Mysteries: Lesson 1 – Healing the Wounded Queens with Fragarach, the Sword of Truth

This article forms the beginning of a shamanic quest for my readers to help them understand and work with the imagery contained within my books that are based on Celtic magic. So if you’ve just stumbled into this Mystery Teachings class, you may want to go to the Introduction first, and then follow the links…

The vital importance of the Vesica Piscis to the Grail mysteries, sacred sex rites and Sovereignty

My book, The Grail Mysteries, features the Vesica Piscis in a faery tale for adults about shamanic sex rites and Sovereignty achieved through the Marriage of the Sun and the Moon. So I thought it might be useful to delve down deeper into this symbol to show its metaphorical meaning. The universe communicates with itself…

“When the going gets weird, the Wyrd turns pro” … with apologies to Hunter S

In the Northern Tradition, the Wyrd is the product of the three Norns who weave this web of fate or destiny which is under the control of Orlog, the omnipotent, omnipresent and eternal law of the universe to which we all are bound. However, I’ve found that shamanically, one can work with the three Norns…

The Way of the Initiate – it’s not what you think …

If you want to eradicate evil from the face of the Earth, then you are like the person who wants to ban fire because forest fires kill wildlife. What you are calling “evil” – because it is never absolute and always relative – is an integral part of the Creation and necessary for the Earth…

Reclaiming Sovereignty: Dancing with the mind of God

I’ve been having a most interesting and enlightening time, lately, since my discovery of certain natural laws and how they resonate throughout the mind-body-spirit continuum. So I’d like to share some of that information with you here because, for me, it’s been something of a game changer in my spiritual practice, and you might like…

Sovereignty – The Marriage of the Sun and the Moon

This is a picture of the famed Lady and the Unicorn tapestry, which was woven from silk and wool in Flanders around the 16th century and is now housed in the Cluny Museum in Paris. As you can see, it has been reconstructed in parts, because it was destroyed during the French Revolution. What it…

Put some real Christmas spirits into your Yuletide!

If you dig deep enough, underneath all the plastic hype, bling and glitz, Yuletide is actually a real and very potent time of year for Earth magic, as the fiery arrow of Sagittarius flies towards the Bull of fertility, and the Horned One of Capricorn springs into action at the Birth of the Radiant Child…

A message to the light beings

I keep seeing these internet messages from light beings or ETs about how we should think and act … but disturbingly, this message doesn’t seem to vary from the one we’ve been given for thousands of years by the major world religions. You know the ones, the ‘love one another’, ‘turn the other cheek’ meme,…

The Dark Moon Goddess and the Enchantment of Bilderberg

This time last year, I wrote about Chris Street’s work in exposing the huge animal giant earthworks that surround London, the Lion and the Unicorn. I concentrated on the solar Lion because the land which he stands guardian over was where the Olympics were about to take place, and the river named after him runs…

The Real High History of the Holy Grael

In the days of old, far back into the mists of time, roaming storytellers would turn up at villages with rolled up mats which they would unfurl and spread under a huge and rambling tree, as if to announce their arrival. Long before cinema, television and even writing, let alone the printing press, news that…

The War on the Astral Planes

Yesterday, I journeyed in the shamanic way up through the astral planes and into the higher dimensions. As I reached the lower, dark astral, they were waiting for me, as they often are these days, demanding my co-operation in a certain task. I just snorted a bit and told them to go forth and multiply,…

Re-membering the Last Abbot Alchemist of Glastonbury

On a cold November’s day in 1539, Henry VIII’s soldiers dragged the last abbot of Glastonbury, Richard Whiting, up through the High Street on a horse-drawn hurdle and then up to the summit of the Tor, where he was hung on a gibbet with two monks hanging either side of him, like two thieves, in…
