What to read during the lockdown – The Grail Mysteries

I was going to say that if you’re looking for some great escapism, then the final book to tell you about in this series would be ideal. But then I realised that The Grail Mysteries is no escape all at all. It is a bridge into the Other Worlds that are just as real as…

What to read during the lockdown – The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar

I was one of the first people to write about Sovereignty as a ‘thing’. In fact, I think I was THE first. It was shown to me as a vision, amd then the historical evidence for it quickly manifested across my desk, to help me give it weight and ground it into this world. I…

What to read during the lockdown – Stories in the Stars

We may be feeling stuck in our isolation, in our separation from each other, with each Groundhog Day seeming exactly the same. We’ve mowed the lawn, pruned back the buddleia, tidied up the clematis …so now, what next? What we’re experiencing may seem like stasis. However, it’s more like a fission reaction blur of possibilities,…

True facts about a possible cure for the coronavirus

Controversy is currently raging about the safety and efficacy of hydroxy chloroquine as a cure for the coronavirus. It almost as if some people would prefer that a cure should never be found rather than it be announced from the lips of President Trump. It’s pity that they can’t seem to come up with a…

Does megadosing with Vitamin C stop coronavirus in its tracks?

I’ve been a little dismissive of those trying to persuade us that Vitamin C helps to prevent the worst effects of the coronavirus. This is because I know that while we are not confronting the real, foundational dietary problems caused by the Standard Western Diet, which is impacting negatively on the correct functioning of our…

What to eat to beat the coronavirus

There is one very simple action you can take – that everyone can take – to beat the coronavirus. But it won’t come from our GPs and doctors who have had little to no training in nutrition – apart from sales literature from the food propaganda lobby that is focussed on SAD pyramids with cereal…

How to make self-isolation work to your advantage

If you’re self-isolating, I can think of no better time to begin training in the Mysteries because you will have far fewer worldly distractions. In the days of yore, our ancestors would lock themselves away in monasteries and ashrams in order to receive this kind of enlightenment. Now you don’t have to. And you can…

Sex, death and Eros on Valentine’s night

Shamans see sex and death as closely related in that both bring about a kind of birth. In other words, death is just a birth into another world. A shaman often knows which foods are designed to send us into the next world – and thus are passion killers in this one – just by…

How to eat right in spring for your ancestral body type

The birds always know when it’s spring. As I write this, it is not yet mid-February, but I can see them already flocking together in the skies above Glastonbury Tor, getting ready for the migration north. Those who are remaining put – like my house sparrows – are busily swishing past me with bits of…

The Revenge of the Veggies

Most vegans I know are tired and ill a lot of the time, but particularly during the winter months when they seem to catch every bug that’s doing the rounds because of weakened immune systems. On top of that, they are often depressed under the seemingly endless days of low grey clouds, suffering with Seasonal…

Five ways to survive viral epidemics and pandemics

Viruses are only a real problem for the weaker members of the community. Those with debilitated constitutions, who have low immunity or whose inner core has been made more fragile with age-related diseases and too much stress are more vulnerable to the ill-effects of biological pathogens. You could almost say that viruses are Nature’s way…

The role of the shaman at death

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 be making 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 to…

The importance of race in shamanic healing

I carry the memories and stories of my ancestors in the blood of my race – in my DNA. These are unique to the Celts and Anglo-Saxons, who are white Caucasians, and they form the basis of my spiritual consciousness and my cosmological understanding. I love my race and wish to help preserve it against…

The Ecstasy of the Heart

This is probably one of most powerfully metamorphic shamanic healing techniques that you will ever practise – and you don’t even have to be a shaman to do it. Anyone can do the Ecstasy of the Heart and benefit enormously from it – anyone who has a heart. And it will not only change how…

Ringing in the changes for the new year

You probably know that an apothecary is a sort of repository or storehouse? Well, this is just to let you know that The Holistic Works is now hosting my amazing repository, Annie’s Apothecary.

How to eat right in winter for your ancestral body type

Many of us suffer unnecessarily in winter largely because we have not been taught about eating right for our ancestral body type, and how we are not just the product of what we eat, but what we eat at different seasons of the year. I’ve explained the importance of following in the footsteps of our…

How to eat right for your ancestral body type

Despite the misinformation of modern Western medicine, which is born out of ignorance about the role of nutrition in helping us feel and look good for longer, most of us do now understand that we are what we eat. However, we may not realise the relevance of the land that we are born and raised…

The ancient elixir of life: simple steps to looking and feeling good for longer

Have you ever wondered why Chinese people seem to remain younger-looking and healthier than many of us in the West? It is actually a matter of perception. It is not so much that they stay young and fitter for longer, but that we get older and sicker sooner than we would have done had we…

How great art aids spiritual progress

The term the “Great Art” comes from medieval times and it refers to the art of alchemy, which has, at the heart of its raison d’etre, the many-stepped alchemical process that culminates in the Philosopher’s Stone which turns all it touches into gold. The science of alchemy found a way to use various forms of…

How to reincarnate into your own life

There are two realities. I live in the one in which the whole planet is impregnated with spirits, and I see their faces and forms everywhere; in the clouds, in the mountains, in the seas. Scientists call this way of seeing pareidolia. It is, apparently, a sub-category of apophenia which they say is a tendency…

This sort of Christmas reading could completely change your life!

This festive holiday season might be a good time to get started on the Mysteries. By ‘Mysteries’, I don’t mean a detective story that just spins you round and round in your thinking for no good reason. I mean the Mysteries with a capital “M”. Until recent decades, these Mystery Teachings were jealously guarded and…
