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…

Ringing in the changes for the new year

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…

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…

How the practice of sacred sex leads to enlightenment

Imagine my unabated joy when I discovered that there was a real, live shaman woman in Glastonbury who’d written the words my heart so yearned to hear! In giving me the permission that I needed to start thinking of my spirituality in a very different way, she quite literally changed my life.

The true meaning and spiritual growth available to us at Thanksgiving

The convenient myth is that the American Founding Fathers were Deists and that the New World pilgrims first learned about the ceremony of Thanksgiving from Native Americans. The inconvenient truth is that the Founding Fathers were the offspring of the mystically-inclined Dragon Clans who, in the 17th century, were hounded out of Britain in a…

Opening the doors of our perception to a more fulfilling world

Who was it that said “Life is a bitch … and then you die.” Modern life can seem superficial, harsh and meaningless … that is until we dig beneath the surface to discover a deeper path to a more fulfilling and fruitful world. These words from the introduction to Hamlet’s Mill by Giorgio de Santillana…

The Mystery Teachings – first steps for beginners

If I was asked to describe exactly what the Mystery Teachings were about in just eight words, I would say: “The Marriage of the Sun and the Moon”. You might wonder why that is such a crucial topic to be understood on the road to wisdom and enlightenment. Well, it’s because the Marriage of the…

The real magic of Halloween

As we stock up on sweets to hand out to the tiny trick or treaters, we may not be aware of the real magical meaning of Halloween, and of how we can use that esoteric knowledge to add benefit to our lives today. To the ancient Celts, the festival of Halloween – or Samhain as…

The Mystery of the Glastonbury Zodiac

I have been gestating, over the last nine years, a story and a message that the Glastonbury Zodiac has been showing me. The vision was eventually birthed through a combination of studying Katharine Maltwood’s books on the zodiac – a 30-mile round of colossal earthwork giants on the Somerset Levels – and then going on…

Brigid the Bright One, the Sleeping Beauty and the Hollow Hills

In the old faery lore of Wessex, Brigid is the beautiful woman sleeping and dreaming under the green mantle of the Hollow Hills where she is protected by a briar rose thorn thicket, and she will only awaken when the Three Utterances — man, animal and faery — come together in Harmony and Love to…

The magical and alchemical secrets of Glastonbury Tor

Since its starring role in Danny Boyle’s Olympic opening ceremony, friends have been asking me about the magical significance of Glastonbury Tor. Well, I don’t profess to know everything about the Tor. I doubt there are many that do. But I do live here in Glastonbury and, as a shaman, when I walk these lands,…

Excavating the real grave of Arthur of Avalon

We’re all familiar with the tale of how a wounded King Arthur Pendragon was carried in a boat by Morgan Le Fae to the Land of the Dead in Avalon. But we may not realise that this is just a tiny fragment of a much longer and more ancient wisdom story about how our hero…

How the Druids used the power of leylines and dragons to underpin the Sovereignty of Britain

These days, the knowledge about the power of leylines to direct the Sovereignty and wellbeing of a nation is kept from the general population. But it still remains true that whoever holds the “reins” of the land, reigns over the land. We find information about the lore that has been occulted from us in the…

The Language of the Birds

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut I found that one of the first innate gifts I developed during my shamanic training was that of pattern recognition. When you’re continually zooming out to go into other worlds, and then zooming back in again, you are able to see the patterning of this world at a glance, and so you…

The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar: Shamanic sexual healing and sex magic

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut Here in my book, The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar, I lay out in detail how shamanic sex has been used, throughout history, to prepare pharaohs, kings, tsars and sultans for Sovereignty. This is because it is a shamanic technique that leads alchemically to a superior intelligence and self-empowerment which is a…

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut It is said that when Britain is in the direst peril and needs him the most, King Arthur will arise from his grave and return. We know this because we used to hear rhymes about it while still in the cradle – bardic poems that hail from of an age that Time…

The Occult Cause of the Madonna/Whore Complex

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut The Roman Catholic Church has spent a lot of time arguing over whether Mary Magdalene really was a prostitute. I can tell them that she was, but that her mythic character was developed from the honoured tradition of the sacred whore whose role is vital in producing the avatar of the age.…

Sacred Sex, Shamanism and Sovereignty

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut 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…
