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. I open the window, outside I can hear the banshee-like cries of adult barn owls. I see something peaking in from […]

Trying to be a Phoenix

On the morning of the first of November, as Halloween merged into All Souls Day, our house burned down. I awoke to hear a strange sound, it wasn’t loud, it was actually quite subtle.  I thought perhaps it was my dog, or one of the cats messing around.  I started to drift back into a […]

You Are Light

  Rainbow – a display of the colours of the spectrum produced by dispersion of light. Currently, I am studying to qualify as a cognitive-behavioral hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy can trace it’s roots all the way back to shamanism, through to yoga and the sleep-temples of ancient Greece. Recently, I decided to hypnotically regress myself as far […]

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 […]

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 […]

Following the Reindeer

This week has been quite intense spiritually. First, someone asked to see me for some shamanism. Before sleeping, I asked to be given some guidance on this and dreamed I was collecting jay feathers. The next morning on my walk, I found a beautiful jay feather and also a large crow feather under the oak […]

The God in the Grasshopper

Those who see all creatures in themselves and themselves in all creatures know no fear. Those who see all creatures in themselves and themselves in all creatures know no grief. How can the multiplicity of life, delude the one who sees its unity. The Isha Upanishad Although the presence of such spectacular spirit animals as anacondas […]

Kundalini Crop Formation

I’m having great fun looking back at all the crop circles/formations that have appeared over the years. This one is particularly stunning from a kundalini perspective. This beautiful serpent appeared at West Woodhay Down, near Inkpen, Wiltshire. The body of the serpent has 29 circles. 29 reduces to 11, which is also found twice in its […]
