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

Grail cover
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.

Who is God? And what does God have to do with shamanic sex magic?

When I do Tarot readings, I say to the person I’m reading for: “You have the opportunity now to ask a question of God or the Higher Power, whatever that means to you – man, woman or unspecified something,” and they usually reply, “Well, I believe in something, but I’m not sure what.”

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

My latest book, The Grail Mysteries, features the Vesica Piscis in a faery tale for adults about shamanic sex rites and Sovereignty, so I thought it might be useful to delve down deeper into this symbol to show its metaphorical meaning.

The universe communicates with itself through pictures – colourful symbols and metaphors. Perhaps that’s why we find, as shamans, that symbols  and metaphors are the main way in which the spirits talk to us, and we also use symbols and metaphors to talk to them. A picture speaks a thousand words, as they say, and it utters those words through the vibrational resonance of its sacred geometrical dimensions and colour and sound frequencies. Continue reading
