I’m in a small town. The mad cat lady comes up to me, clutches my arm and says intently, you know, there are people here, only pretending, to be humans. Continuing on, I come to a hole, broken into the wall of a run-down house. Looking in, I see a cave system, it’s full of […]

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.

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 […]
