More evidence of sacred shamanic sexual rites in Anglo Saxon Britain

I know many who read my book The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar were convinced, by the sheer volume of evidence presented, that sacred sex rites attended the coronation rituals of kings all over the world thousands of years ago. But some may have had their doubts about whether the same practice was going on…

How St Thomas Aquinas could guide us through the information war into the Aquarian Age

It seems to me that we have a Lost Generation that is wandering around and latching on to any seemingly “just cause” as a sleepwalker would blindly grab the bannisters along the landing. This is not their fault. Man lives on stories, and if he is not given the right story upon which to map…

The Ecstasy of the Heart

This is probably one of most powerfully metamorphic shamanic healing techniques that you will ever practise – and you don’t even have to be a shaman to do it. Anyone can do the Ecstasy of the Heart and benefit enormously from it – anyone who has a heart. And it will not only change how…

The only way to world peace is through religious mysticism

If you’ve been wondering about my recent attempts to unravel Christian mysticism – and yes, I expect you have many better things to think about – but well, there are several very good reasons for decoding the Bible and one of those, not least, is because understanding the metaphorical meanings of the ancient Judaic myths…

An Epiphany about Epiphany

The celebration of Epiphany on January 6th marks the arrival of the three kings from the Orient who followed the star to the stable of the baby Jesus, and they were bearing him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. However, it would probably pass by practically unnoticed were it not also the day when we…

Grailkeepers and Time Bandits

I recently gave a talk about how, should we cast our eyes back into the deepest known history, it looks as though the intellectual and spiritual evolution of humanity has been ever under the two-edged sword of the blessings of the Grailkeepers and the curse of the Time Bandits. The Grailkeepers preserve the secret, esoteric,…

The seed of our spiritual transformation that is hidden in plain sight

I used to think that if everyone was a shaman, and journeyed into the Other Worlds to get guidance from the entities we call “spirits”, it would solve all the problems of the world. However, over time, I came to realise that 1) it was an extremely naïve and idealistic viewpoint which would lead to…

What is Great Art? And what does it have to do with spiritual progress?

The term “the Great Art” comes from medieval times and it refers to the art of alchemy, which has, at the heart of its raison d’etre, the many-stepped alchemical process that culminates in the Philosopher’s Stone. The science of alchemy found a way to use various forms of art – by which I mean stories,…

How to reincarnate into your own life

There are two realities. I live in the one in which the whole planet is impregnated with spirits, and I see their faces and forms everywhere; in the clouds, in the mountains, in the seas. Scientists call this way of seeing pareidolia. It is, apparently, a sub-category of apophenia which they say is a tendency…

Christmas in Avalon – time for real starfire magic!

If you’re feeling a bit jaded about Christmas, you don’t have to dig too far underneath all the artificial bling and glitz to discover that it’s actually a very potent time of year for real starfire magic, as the flaming arrow of the Sagittarius Archer flies towards the Taurus bull of fertility, and the Horned One of Capricorn emerges with the newly-born Radiant Child on his back.

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…

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…
