As a shaman, I work alongside the spirits that govern the land of our ancestors; they are the spirits of Sovereignty that, on the energetic level, is a huge force that gushes forth from the Rivers of Blood or the DNA of the ancestors that are buried in the land. It reaches the emotional intelligence of the people through the portals of these spiritual conduits, an Elder race whose role it is to guide the spiritual evolution of human beings. They are known in the British Isles as the Fae, the Gentry, the Sidhe or the Faeries. Other cultures have their own names for these spirits that appear to inhabit the betwixt and between – like the aesir of the Norse and the devas of the Vedics.

It seems that we’re about to enter some extremely interesting times because the world powers are rearranging themselves. We’re being told that Elon Musk’s launch of the Falcon Heavy, the most powerful rocket to be shot into space since the Moon shuttles, signalled the beginning of the Age of the Human. It carried a red Tesla car with a human mannequin “driving it” and a David Bowie track, Life on Mars, playing on a loop. Highly symbolic.
The Falcon, who hunts by day, was sending a message to the night-hunting Moloch Owls of Bohemian Grove, in other words, those in recent decades who’ve created enormous black holes in the Pentagon budget in order to bring in a world ruled by a super-intelligent computer. Their aim was to develop technology that would make man more bionic, like a cyborg or a robot. It was known as the Transhuman Agenda.
This wonderful poem by Amara Bronwyn MacEachern Hollow Bones sums up, in a nutshell, everything about the specialised shamanic path that I write and teach about.
We locked up our wisdom into our bones
And swallowed the keys
They sank in our rivers of blood
And we forgot the maps
Because we had to forget the mysteries
To keep them safe.
We wove our hair into brooms
And swept over our paths
And then burned the earth with our rage
We didn’t teach our children
It was the only way to protect them,
But in them we planted seeds, seeds and keys
And told them stories and riddles and songs
With no roots, just tangled threads
That would take years to unwind
Just enough time
For the rains to fall again
and put out the fires
For the dams to break
For the rivers to flood
For the paths
to be walked again
For the soil to breathe
And as the old bones crumble
Deep beneath the rubble
We find we’ve always had the keys
Our stories and our maps
Our paths are revealed to some
And the seeds grow again
The threads are unspun
And woven again.

I thoroughly recommend the television series England’s Forgotten Queen: The Life and Death of Lady Jane Grey as an object lesson in what happens when the spirit of Sovereignty rises up from the land and enters the hearts and minds of the people. The story about the two rival queens, Mary and Jane, shows that there is really is an unstoppable force which even uses the elements and the weather to achieve its aims, just as it did on the night of June 23rd 2016 when key Remainer seats in south-west London were flooded, preventing people from getting to the polls.
This royal event from our history is usually presented as a battle between Mary, the Catholic queen and Jane, the Protestant queen. However, the religious schism is just window-dressing for a power struggle of greater forces, and I am certain that what really happened in the year 1553 is taught secretly to students of statecraft as they are prepared for rulership because it’s a classic textbook example of what can go wrong when a government gets out of touch with the spirit of Sovereignty and the people over which they rule.

As a shaman, I’m guided by various spirits in the other dimensions including what we call ‘power animals’ that are usually half-human and half-beast. And so with my predictions for 2018, it’s been a great help to have the etheric equivalent of Dorothy’s Toto pulling back the green curtain of the Wizard of Oz! Continue Reading

When I talk of the magic of magnesium, I don’t mean the sleight-of-hand tricks of the stage conjurer. I’m talking about real magic, the kind that the goddess of the sea performs every single second of every single day and night in her submarine laboratory.
As a shaman, I have journeyed into the heart of this great mother of life, and from that I’ve learnt that she brings the power of alchemical fire in the salt water that floods through our every cell, giving us the energy and strength to magnetise good health and fortune towards us and through that empowerment, the magnaminity of will to help others.
The key to this great magical power is buried in our language:
In the last article, Lesson 3, Forging our own faery sword of truth, we discussed the metaphorical meaning of the Three of Swords, and I used an example from the Fey Tarot in which a male faery is rising from the sea with the dawn breaking just behind him.
Dawn is a major character in my books where she plays the same role as she does in the Tarot, which is to denote the promise or covenant of rebirth after ‘death’ – whether it’s just the end of a cycle in our lives or the final initiation in which we leave this dimension forever. For this reason, the character of Death in most good decks has a red, pink or apricot sunrise behind him.

Sometimes people use old myths about faeries, dwarves and wizards to build a cosy, walled cognitive space – in the same way that as children we used to construct camps from blankets and bedspreads in which to hide from the realities of the adult world.
However, the ancient myths were not meant for that purpose and neither are my books, because these deeply rich allegorical tales contain wisdom keys that provide us with ways of meeting the seemingly impossibly difficult challenges of the human condition. These challenges don’t change from generation to generation. The problems that we’re faced with today were also faced by our ancestors thousands of years ago. From the minute we give out that first scream at birth, we’re in a life-and-death struggle between good and evil, whether we realise it or not – and often our adversaries prefer us not to realise it, as they soften us up for the killing blow.
That’s why I chose the archetypal symbol of the sword to begin this series of lessons that make up these mystery teachings, which are based on the stories in my own books and particularly The Grail Mysteries. The last article, Lesson 2, was about the faery woman who raises the sword from beneath the frozen Hart Lake under the stars of Capricorn, and I’ve shown various ways of getting in touch with the faery gold buried within our own frozen emotional pain and forging it into our own Fragarach, the Sword of Truth.
If you have followed my guidance in Lesson 1, you will hopefully have begun the process of diving down deep into the frozen lake of your emotions and using the heat of concentration – through visualisation or shamanic journeying – in the alchemic crucible of your own inner space to release them and bring them to the surface in the form of a faery sword.
In this article, Lesson 2, I will be referencing the image in my book The Grail Mysteries where the woman’s arm wielding the sword appears from beneath the white, frozen Hart Lake, under the stars of Capricorn, to signal the birth of the royal Radiant Child on the winter solstice.
