In the Coils of the Goddess

This is a typical kundalini dream experience. I’m standing in a garden, as a giant anaconda crosses the lawn at great speed. I can see the beautiful skin patterns clearly and sense tremendous power. It heads towards the house and enters through a window. I run into the house and find I’m in a corridor. […]

Owl Spirit

It’s night-time.  I’m standing in the bedroom of a medieval house. I hear a hissing noise, it gets louder and louder, I realise it’s the sound of baby barn owls, they hiss like snakes.

Dreaming of UFOs

    I dreamed I was in the house where my kundalini awakened. The experience was totally lucid and I even asked myself within the dream, am I dreaming?  A house usually represents various aspects of the dreamer and this house had been called Anma, which means soul in Occitan language.  The walls inside this soul-house […]

Charming the Bees

This summer the bees came to us.  A wild swarm settled in our chimney and then descended into the stove in our living room.  The whole stove was buzzing and the house was full of the song of countless bees.  Of course this did cause a bit of a dilemma, as we obviously didn’t want […]

CELTIC KUNDALINI ON THE MUSICAL TREE

  This is an extract from my book, A Shamanic Kundalini Awakening, exploring the ‘hidden’ kundalini symbolism encoded in the Brian Boru Harp, the national symbol of Ireland. CELTIC KUNDALINI ON THE MUSICAL TREE ‘He was a harp; all life that he had known and that was his consciousness was the strings; and the flood of […]

Spontaneously Arising Shamanism

  In Nepal, they have a term to describe aspects of shamanism that do not involve human teachers, they call this self generated or spontaneously arising shamanism. I have observed this certainly to be the case on my own journey and in the way my shamanic tools came to me. One day, whilst reading a […]
