Cuchullain, Amergin, the Horned One and the Celtic shamans of the Blessed Isles

There must have been shamans leading the tribes of Britain before the Roman invasion in the first century CE because they were all over the world, although not necessarily called shamans, which is a Siberian word. According to their oldest stories, the Celts had their Dreamers, or awenyddions, and you can enjoy readng about them…

The end of the Strong God and the sacrificial lamb

I find myself increasingly living in a world in which it’s difficult to reply to questions, because the common currency of communication is made up of ‘coins’ in which I no longer trade. For instance, I was asked the other day, at a meeting of Greens, whether, given ‘the problem of global warming’, we should…

Sovereignty: the rite of passage we are undergoing can only be passed by relying on ancestral wisdom

It seems to me that the situation we’re in regarding the threat to the survival of our race has all the hallmarks of an initiatory test as part of a rite of passage. What do I mean by rite of passage? The rite of passage was a practice – and often still is among those…

How Grace You Fair The Summerlands

How grace You fair the Summerlands, When the Wheel revolves to Your command. With tumbling tendrils of Your blooming hair, Your perfumed breath woven into June’s air, And soft, downy roses of Your cheeks pink, Under apples honeying for ambered drink, The moss-sweet meadows bubbling with springs, Young cranes soar overhead with Your wings.

The Power of the Bard

I’ve recently decided to concentrate more on writing poetry than long essays, but not because I want to hide in some irrelevant and anachronostic past-time …..far from it. It’s because I‘ve been coming to realise that what’s known as the ‘power of the bard’ is one of the true swords of the shaman or those…

Blood Moon: A Matter of Life and Death

There are times when I feel sorry for the dear Christians who, having been persuaded that their literature is literal history or prophecy, when it contains stories intended for metaphorical teachings about astronomical cycles, are continually in a paradoxical state of fearing for/hoping for the End of Days and the Second Coming. This bouncing around…

How the shaman is Breaking Bad into better

You may have heard of the series Breaking Bad – the main plotline of which follows the trajectory to hell in a handcart that gets unleashed when a college chemistry teacher decides to get rich by making crystal meth. Fans of the series may object to me reducing it down thus, and they would be…

Brigit-Ana’s Medicine Wheel of the Year

As we’re just about to cross the threshold of the portal into the New Year, I want to give everyone a gift and what better, at this time, than a Wheel of the Year or, as some call it, a Medicine Wheel? Through this Wheel of Year, we can be more easily in tune with…

Shamanic Power: How to get it, how to keep it clean

I remember when my shaman training group first sat down to a three day session on how to generate and manage shamanic power: Simon, our shaman teacher, announced that we were going to learn all about how to get power and keep power, and some of us were quite shocked, including yours truly. So I…

Where are the Perpetual Choirs that Enchant the Land?

We’re all quite familiar now with the healing power of herbs, flowers and plants in various different therapies. But what we’re only now just beginning to learn about is the healing power of the song of the flower. There is a growing body of evidence that our earliest ancestors, who had a stronger connection to…

The Masons’ role in hiding the Holy Grael

The huge 2012 industry came to a head a couple of years ago with countless books and films about the meaning of the Winter Solstice that year ~ December 21 2012 was the end of an important astronomical cycle to the Mayans. But all this media has been produced by non-Mayans (usually Americans and Brits)…

How does a Tarot reading predict the future?

There are many different forms of divination, to identify landmarks and cycles on the spiritual path in order to see what’s coming next and to identify changes in behaviour and actions which can help with the transition. I find that Tarot works very well for a number of reasons, although I can also understand why…

The Slaughter of the Innocents: the CIA mind programming of a whole generation

Lately, I have been thinking deeply about the mind programming which created the mystique around the Californian Mount Shasta during the psychedelic era of the Sixties which had the aim of creating the New Age movement (as it was named by the Scottish Rite of Freemasons).

The White Swan II: “Energy is Eternal Delight”

I’m delighted to be publishing part II of wódr ̥’s The White Swan, which heralds the bursting of the rigid watercourses, levees, dykes and dams erected over thousands of years to constrain our actual, original cognitive gifts, and the recognition of the return of the shamanic river of perpetual return to ex-stasis consciousness.

The White Swan: Beyond Occam’s Razor

“What we call here a Black Swan is an event with the following three attributes. First, it is an outlier, as it lies outside the realm of regular expectations, because nothing in the past can convincingly point to its possibility. Second, it carries an extreme impact. Third, in spite of its outlier status, human nature…

The Imminent Invasion of the Ancient Sumerian Gods

We keep hearing on the internet about the possibility of invasions by extraterrestrials like the Anunnaki, so I thought I should give some clarification about who these Sumerian gods actually were. Then when the Psy Ops swings fully into gear, we’ll be better prepared, psychologically, to meet it.

How to Get a Camel Through the Eye of a Needle – Opening the Third Eye

Part of the toolkit of the shaman healer is something called ‘shamanic counselling’. But it’s not to be confused with ordinary counselling in which the client tells their problems to a human counsellor. With shamanic counselling, the client tells their problems to their own spirit guides, and those guides answer them, personally.

The Journey of Coming Forth Into Day – shamanic guidance for the death journey

The only certainties in life are death and taxes, according to Benjamin Franklin. So you’d think that, given the 100 per cent inevitability of our demise, we’d make pretty damn sure that we knew a heck of a lot about it. But no. We have every kind of instruction, information, advice and guidance on how…

Climbing the Stairway to Heaven – Upgrading your DNA

For many decades we’ve been labouring under the misapprehension that our genetic fate is predetermined and set in concrete. However, I started working shamanically to transform my DNA as soon as I came to understand that DNA was mutable, by environment and other factors.

The Serpent, the Egg and the Garden of Earthly Delights

About eighteen months ago, I asked Spirit to show me the true nature of the Universe. What then unfolded, in vivid and fluid panorama, made sense, to me, of all the motifs concerning the serpent and the egg across the civilised world during Neolithic times. It also showed me from where Karl Fabergé and Hieronymous…

How Palaeolithic man sailed the oceans by the currents and the stars

Kevin Costner’s Waterworld was set in a post-Apocalyptic world. The whole floating, sea-borne community only existed as a reaction to a worldwide disaster. But what about a Waterworld scenario that is not a reaction to anything — one in which man regarded the sea as much his natural habitat as he did the land?

The Stained Glass Windows of Ice Age Cathedrals: Cave art and shamanism

The oldest rock art ever found in the British Isles was discovered last summer in a deep underground cave in Wales, somewhere on the Gower Peninsula. It shows the faint scratching of a reindeer with a spear in its neck, and it’s dated to around 14,000 years ago, during the last Ice Age. (It’s not…

What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted? The Realms of the Lost Souls

Jimmy Ruffin has a point. For thousands of years, shamanism has been pushed underground and, with it, a very important role which the shaman used to perform: retrieving lost souls. This is why we live in a world today of half-zombies, the dispossessed and the preta or ‘hungry ghosts’.

Fire In The Head – The Shaman’s Halo

There’s a lot of nonsense talked about whether someone in the West can call themselves a shaman because, it is said, “shaman is a Siberian word and we’re not Siberians.” The truth is, we are shamans. By ‘we’, I mean the people who journey into the Otherworlds, who talk with the spirits, who bring back…
