Sewing our shadows back on

In my article for Beltane, I explained the star story that underpins the play about Peter Pan. In it, I show the connection between Tinkerbell and Jupiter, who governs the metal tin, and the sign of Sagittarius. (This is all explained much more fully in Stories in the Summerlands). But in brief, J. M Barrie’s…

Beltane, May Day and the story written in the stars that fall on the Summerlands

This year, we will miss the colour and gaiety and music that, in normal times, fills the streets of Glastonbury at Beltane on May Day. Now the streets are silent. But in better times, folk come pouring into the Summerlands from far and wide to join the throngs following the red and white dragons as…

The Cosmic Serpent and the Coronavirus

The world crisis caused by the coronavirus has been forcing me to focus on the challenge of talking about politics while also practising shamanism, because I have to keep remembering to “zoom out” before “zooming in” again.   I’ve been receiving visions recently which are no longer allowing me to address the problems of our…

Mary Poppins – the way out of the dark tunnels

I spent a good part of the summer of 2012 unravelling the symbols and metaphors of the magical ritual of the opening ceremony of the London Olympics, but I didn’t give much attention to one particular bit because I didn’t understand it then. I think I do now …. or at least, it is the…

Mary Poppins and the Mysteries of Time and Space

I’ve been experiencing for a while that the key to spiritual evolution is found in the original Mary Poppins song “Step in Time”. Mary Poppins is not just a children’s story; it was written by a student of Gurdjieff and of Yeats, and who spent years living with native American tribes in order to learn…

How to get into the eye of the storm

The storm is now raging all around us. Yet at its centre, in its single eye, all is completely still, peaceful and serene. I’ve published a lot on Annie’s Apothecary about what nutritional steps you can take to strengthen your immune system from viral attack. But as we know, we are much more than just…

Homeward bound

Everyone is going home. Hundreds of thousands of people across the world are returning to their homelands, like great migrating flocks of homing pigeons. But what is the rationale behind this great Exodus? There doesn’t appear to be one. It’s not as if their homelands will be virus-free, and the lack of work will be…

What to read during the lockdown – The Grail Mysteries

I was going to say that if you’re looking for some great escapism, then the final book to tell you about in this series would be ideal. But then I realised that The Grail Mysteries is no escape all at all. It is a bridge into the Other Worlds that are just as real as…

What to read during the lockdown – The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar

I was one of the first people to write about Sovereignty as a ‘thing’. In fact, I think I was THE first. It was shown to me as a vision, amd then the historical evidence for it quickly manifested across my desk, to help me give it weight and ground it into this world. I…

What to read during the lockdown – Stories in the Summerlands

Right now, the psychological warfare machine is ramped up massively, with both sides trading blows by twisting and retwisting old myths into false, mind programming narratives. How can you see through the fog of this information war? Well, you can make a good start by letting me teach you how to unweave and repurpose the…

What to read during the lockdown – Stories in the Stars

We may be feeling stuck in our isolation, in our separation from each other, with each Groundhog Day seeming exactly the same. We’ve mowed the lawn, pruned back the buddleia, tidied up the clematis …so now, what next? What we’re experiencing may seem like stasis. However, it’s more like a fission reaction blur of possibilities,…
