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, they reveal to me some of their secrets. And so I can share with you what I know, and also the thoughts of those more expert than me.
In a nutshell, Glastonbury Tor is a huge vortex of spiritual and temporal power for these Isles of Wonder. When Alfred the Great was trying to recapture them back from the Vikings, in the 9th century, he was camped out near here. But before that, as a child of just six, he had been sent to Rome to learn the great arts and his curriculum would have included magical alchemy, as this was practised by the monks of that time.
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 battled the elements in the starry, stormy firmamental seas to win the hallowed Cauldron, otherwise known as the Holy Grail.
It was the Norman scribes in the 12th and 13th centuries who allowed that fragment to remain in the consensual consciousness, to encourage the belief in the minds of the “difficult” Celts – who were always threatening revolt – that their Arthur was dead. It was for the same reason that, around the same time, the Benedictine monks exhumed “Arthur’s skeleton” from the grounds in Glastonbury Abbey. It was all just part of a propaganda exercise to create a politically convenient pseudohistory by persuading the masses that a metaphorical figure was actually a historical personage who had now passed on from this realm.
In this way, the mythical Mists of Avalon became a useful cognitive curtain preventing further exploration. However, when we push through that mind fog, we can excavate the full original saga to find a thrilling, heroic, mythic tale that reinvigorates the spirit of Arthur which we all hold dear in our dreaming fields, and who is currently rising in our hearts again.
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 ancient myths of the Druidic Celts in the Mabinogion, and one in particular, about the brothers Lludd and Llevelys, and the battling Red and White Dragons.
Steve Baker MP, one of the Eurosceptic Tories in the British parliament, recently tweeted out about the problem of May covertly signing Britain’s military up to the EU’s defence force. At the same time, he sent out a link a new EU think tank paper, The Future of Warfare, and it makes for very interesting reading, particularly about how modern warfare will be mainly conducted psychologically online.
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.
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.
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.
This is an extract from a discussion paper that you can download from a March 2000 article on the United Nations own website that proposes various options for population replacement across Europe and America.
As you read through the paper, it soon becomes apparent that the need to move people around what the powers-that-be clearly view as a planetary chessboard comes from the greed of those who profited from the high GDP that was created by the Babyboomers after the Second World War.
This article forms the beginning of a shamanic quest for my readers to help them understand and work with the imagery contained within my books that are based on Celtic magic. So if you’ve just stumbled into this Mystery Teachings class, you may want to go to the Introduction first, and then follow the links from there.
Before we start the shamanic or magical work for healing the Wounded Queens with the Thirteen Treasures of Britain, we need to get in touch with what needs healing within us because our power will come from what originally disempowered us. Continue reading →
I hope you like the beautiful wrought gilded chalice gracing the cover of my new book The Grail Mysteries as much as I do. It was commissioned by Abbot Suger of St Denis, France, in the twelfth century, while its sardonyx cup was made in Alexandria in the second century BCE.
Abbot Suger’s chalice with kind permission of the National Gallery of Art in Washington.
Those who know about sacred sex magic will instantly recognise why Abbot Suger’s chalice makes a most appropriate cover for a mythic tale which explores that subject in depth. This chalice is symbolic of the Marriage of the Sun and the Moon, the alchemical operation that is at the heart of the ancient mysteries of the Grail which is about the shamanic form of sex that has always underpinned Sovereignty.
The terrible murder of the much-loved Labour MP, Jo Cox, on Thursday, has been distastefully and disgracefully hijacked by those desperately scrabbling for a link between her killer, Thomas Mair, and the Leave campaign in the EU referendum. Whether or not this shooting turns out to be a false flag, we don’t yet know. But it can certainly be filed under the heading of “never let a good opportunity go to waste” for the Remain campaign, which has enormous governmental and media resources at its disposals, but which, nevertheless, has been floundering badly in the polls.
