Review – Council of Light: How to Develop Your Psychic Abilities Online Workshop

July, 2018

https://lifeshare.thinkific.com/courses/increase-your-psychic-ability

I was intrigued by the title of this course. What, exactly, did it mean by developing psychic abilities? We all think of different things when people say ‘psychic’. Some of us might think of ‘readers’; those who do tarot and other divination methods to help read a person’s needs and desires and so help them sort out what they need to do in their lives. Others may think of telepathy and mind reading. The term ‘Psychic’ is even conflated with mediums and those who connect with our beloved dead. I wondered which, if any, of these definitions this course would focus on, so decided to dive right in and find out!

The introductory video outlines 10 simple ways to increase psychic awareness. These include meditation, finding what our psychic strengths are and exercising them, just as we would physical muscles that we want to keep strong. I’m intrigued to know that there are many different types of psychic awareness, so already I am learning something! The instructor then introduces herself, and the difficult journey she has been on which has been aided by developing her mind and reinforcing positive beliefs. This intro is really invigorating and motivating.

Climb mountains of emotions and claw through fields of memories so you can find what is stopping you and blocking you in your life right now.

There follows a short video about meditation, which I am particularly fond of because it tells us that there’s no one, single prescribed way to meditate. It’s all about relaxing the mind, body and spirit. To further assist those who may not have experience of meditation, there’s a document with seven steps to help ease you in to good meditation practice. So far, I’m finding this course very accessible, and even though I’m experienced at meditating, I can see that these sections would be really easy to understand even for a complete novice. For me, I find them reassuring, helpful and a great reminder of the positive benefits of meditation. The physical exercises for neck and head it suggests are also really useful.

The optional prayers given in this section do veer towards the Christian, however, the course makes it clear that meditation is not religion specific, so you could easily replace these with your own Pagan prayers or affirmations. There are some notes on diet which I would take with a pinch of salt (pun intended!) because of course, we all have our own individual nutritional requirements and it may not be good for you to change your diet at this time. I do agree with the overall ethos though: plenty of fresh fruit and veg and water! However, it also suggests all fried foods are bad which I find a bit of an oversimplification.

There follows a guided meditation to help you discover and develop your psychic gifts. Her voice is incredibly relaxing, and I feel the ‘liquid relaxation’ flowing gently through my body, rejuvenating and refreshing me. Indeed, as I relax my shoulders and arms, I let go of tension I didn’t even know I was holding.

The next unit is all about the different ‘clairs’; clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience and claircognizance. The audio lesson gives a fantastic description of not just what these all mean, but how each gift may manifest itself in your life. Each of them held some familiarity for me, but I most resonated with the claircognizant; the person who just knows things without knowing how they know.

After this section we explored chakras, something I have only just begun to explore in any detail, so this was of particular interest to me.

The layout of the course is simple and easy to follow. The combination of videos and written texts works well, and though there’s no guidance to do this, I found that making notes as I went along and referring back to them was the best way for the knowledge to sink in, as well as taking time to do the practical tasks such as the guided meditations.

I know some Pagans came to their path after being disappointed by Christianity, and as such they may be dismayed with the references to the bible and to ‘God’, however I didn’t find this distracting at all, as I took ‘God’ to mean divinity or the universe, and the biblical references were relevant and useful, rather than being ‘preachy’ in any way. The introductory video clearly states that there is no religion specifically connected to psychic development, so as long as you bear that in mind, you should gain a great deal from the content in this course. Recommended.

The Holy Grail

May, 2018

What is the Grail to you?!

The Grail stands as a beacon of hope and wholeness in the midst of the Wasteland created by modern Western materialism.  The potency of this symbol beckoning us back to living in harmony with both ourselves and the land around us is a myth very much of our time.  It speaks directly to wholeness and connection and reminds us that to bring the Wasteland back to fertility and lush abundance we must return to the Source that nourishes it.

Our modern Society and education systems gives us few really useful tools to take with us on the great journey of Life.  We need knowledge and understandings that we can directly apply to the challenges and traumas we face, that enable us to emerge empowered and strong, not weak and victimised. The Lost Wisdom of the Grail telesummit brings together a wide variety of Wisdom Keepers who are working to help humanity overcome the challenges it currently faces and envision a future where all are valued and flourish.

– Saira Salmon, https://www.sairasalmon.com/

Recently I received an invitation to be one of the speakers on a Telesummit in May 2018, titled The Lost Wisdom of the Grail, (https://www.sairasalmon.com/grail/) hosted by Saira Salmon. She has organised this summit from a strong personal connection to the Grail teachings and Grail mythology.

Saira’s question to me was: “How and where does the concept of the Grail appear in your shamanic work and classes?” This was a very exciting question to engage with!  My immediate response was to request a dream on this subject from my spirit team.


The dream that came was about “the wounded masculine” – linking it to the hurian tale of The Fisher King. In the dream I had to make my way to this wounded male figure (first I could not even see if it was a toddler or grown man). When I got there I realized that he was my father/son/husband/male friends all in one. The dream was asking me to reflect on where I need to heal my inner masculine (born a woman) to arrive at a healthier relationship of masculine and feminine in our world. (The external world is always an expression of our internal world!)

Over the centuries many scholars and mystics have arrived at different definitions of what the Holy Grail is or was. For me personally the crucial question is: what is the Holy Grail to you?!


For me, first and last, the Grail is a CRUCIBLE – a sacred container of transformation and transmutation – the big question is: are we willing to make ourselves a crucible (sacred chalice or Holy Grail)?!

For much of 2016 and 2017 I was working intensely with a mysterious figure who called herself The Poison Mother.  She came to me in Sweden and became one of my key allies over time. I made an art video about our work together by the same name:

The Poison Mother


As our work unfolded she told me that was familiar with her under a different name:  Norse goddess Sigyn (wife of the trickster god Loki). Her big question to me (to all of us!) is: am I willing to make myself a crucible for transmutation in the world? This means rather than avoiding “toxic situations” actually choosing to be there and using myself as a chalice (or Holy Grail) to be an agent of change in service to our collective consciousness evolving.


In ancient Sumeria this sacred marriage (or Hieros Gamos) was the central idea at the heart of their religion.  I just finished an art video exploring this mystery today:

The Sacred Marriage in The Great Below


Another Grail in Norse cosmology is the cup that the Valkyrie holds out to the warrior in the moment of death. She is also known as the “The Maiden with the Mead” and she is a supernatural being (a goddess!) and Mistress of Initiation. (I invite you to check out the work of author Maria Kvilhaug (http://freya.theladyofthelabyrinth.com/?page_id=35) who wrote a PhD dissertation on this subject!) This cup is said to hold the mead and her offering accompanies a sacred marriage between the Maiden and the “Hero” of the tale. He faces fierce trials and a descent into the Realm of the Dead to earn this privilege.

It is my belief that profound mystery rites of initiation involving women and feminine power are found at the very heart of Norse cosmology (more commonly perceived as quite a male-god dominated tradition!) The same thing is true for many other cosmologies that map an Other World. The details might be culture-specific but the concept and mystery teachings are very similar.

My personal intention is to call together groups of powerful talented people and harness the group power to retrieve those ancient mysteries and initiations! – If that works speaks to you – please check out my 2-year Seiðmaðr & Seiðkona 2-year program in Sweden (starting Summer 2019):

http://www.shaman-healer-painter.co.uk/info2.cfm?info_id=224450


For the Celtic peoples this ritual was about the sacred marriage of the king to the goddess of the land (Sovereignty). Without this marriage the land becomes a barren waste land (and look at what we are doing to the Earth and her creatures – we need to revive this mystery teaching!
This is the core of the shamanic teaching I am doing – putting ancient mystery teachings back into practice in the modern world with modern groups of people working in spirit-led ways, using the process of direct revelation).

When we lose these wisdom traditions our inner world becomes barren. Our external world becomes a wasteland, dominated by conflict, pollution and a lack of respect for all sentient beings. This way of being in the world brings dis-ease and disharmony with the great Web of Life (or Web of Wyrd in Norse cosmology).

Another question Saira put to me was: what is the Grail in terms of spiritual work with young people? In this context for me The Holy Grail is the safe sacred space – container – for young people to develop their own spiritual toolkit in partnership with their spirit allies. In our culture we make sure that children are looked after in the physical/social/emotional realm but often we leave them rudderless when it comes to the spiritual dimension. I obviously wrote a whole book about this (Natural Born Shamans: A Spiritual Toolkit for Life) but to sum it up in just a few words… our children and young people need:

  • A viable spiritual toolkit to help them navigate the challenges life throws at them

  • Safe sacred space with kindred spirits – if their innate psychic /healing/shamanic abilities are to be nurtured

  • Rites of Passage offered by the Elders of our Communities – safe experiences of initiation and stepping through developmental portals in order to become fully-fledged adults who do not fear death.

Therefore The Grail is directly linked to a rich inner life, to sacred space held by elders and wisdom keepers, to a sacred marriage within ourselves but also between the archetypal figures of King and Sovereignty (Goddess of the Land)!


Are you willing to be a crucible for change and transmutation in our world?!

SpellCrafting: Spells & Rituals

August, 2016

A Ritual In Song

music is the strongest form of magic.” –Marilyn Manson

Merry meet.

In my practice, I accept that everything has a vibration, be it an object such as a besom, or a sound such as a bell. Our own voices put out vibrations that are like no other. Your voice is your unique signature.

As was explained on the Wicca Spirituality website, When you sing magical chants and songs, you bind your intention to the vibrations of your voice, vibrations which you send out into the ever-vibrating world.

Its reflected in the word enchantment, as your magical intention is wrapped into a chant or a song and released to the Universe.

I like to chant and sing during ritual, and have been toying with the idea of doing a ritual completely with songs. It helps that I dont mind using electronics in sacred space, because an iPod is perfect for this.

Below, I share with you a playlist that takes you from grounding and centering to opening the circle all using songs. A link is provided for each. Please forgive any ads that appear. Alternatives are noted and lyrics are given after the playlist in the same order songs appear.

I hope this inspires you to share your suggestions and experiences.

Merry part.

And merry meet again.

This New Day

by Kellianna

From the darkness day is dawning

In my darkest hour I seek the light

All my pain and all my sorrow

May it ease with this new day

May my tears remain uncounted

And I bid the Goddess be my guide

For where you lead you know I’ll follow

At the dawning of this new day

At this crossroad the way seems clouded

And I bid the Goddess be my guide

Grant me grace and grant me vision

At the dawning of this new day

May my strength and may my power

lift me up and light my way

I seek faith and I seek wisdom

At the dawning of this new day

Spirit of Fire / The Fire Chant

Circle Casting Song

by Susan Falkenrath Wolf

Eastern morning, first breath of the soul
World view forming, sacred and whole
Wind of knowledge, simple and wise
Bringer of the lightning, that strikes in our minds
Come to us be here now.

Southern fire, white rays of the sun
Source of will, that always is done
Heat of passion, longing and need
You who pushed the Green One out of the seed
Come to us be here now.

Western river, devotee of the moon,
Gentle sculptor, of babes in the womb,
Spring of jubilation, courage and tears
Giver of the sweet love, that soothes all our fears
Come to us be here now.

Northern mountain, body of the earth,
Finite treasure, of infinite worth,
Cave of transformation, childbirth and death,
Suckler of the wild ones, who curl upon your breast
Come to us be here now.

I Hear You Calling

by Chalice & Blade

Once in a month, when the moon is full some secret place shall ye gather. Adore the spirit of me who is Queen of all of the wise.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

Sing and dance; feast and make love all in my name

For mine is the spirit in ecstasy; Mine is joy on Earth

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

Mine is the secret that opens the door unto the land of youth.

Mine is the cup of wine, of life, Cauldron of Cerridwen.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

I give freedom and I give peace, reunion with those gone before.

I am the mother of all that lives. My love is poured on the Earth.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

I am the beauty of the green Earth, white moon among the stars.

I am the mystery of the waters. Desire in the hearts of man.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

I call to Soul, Arise, come to me. For I am the heart of nature.

And I give life to the universe. For I am She.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

From me all things do proceed. To me they must return.

May your divine, innermost infinite soul enrapture be embraced.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

Let my worship be in your heart and rejoice. All acts of love are mine.

Let there be beauty, strength and pleasure all are my rites.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

And you who think to seek for me, know that it avails ye not.

Unless you know the mystery, look deep within.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling.

For the hunt, I have been with thee since the beginning of time.

And I am that which ye shall attain, the end of desire.

And I hear you calling. And I hear you calling. (repeat 2x)

Charge of the Star Goddess

I who am the beauty of the green Earth,

and the white moon among the stars,

and the mystery of the waters,

I call upon your soul to arise and come unto Me.

For I am the soul of nature, which gives life to the universe.

From Me all things proceed, and unto Me they must return.

Let My worship be in the heart that rejoices,

For behold, all acts of love and pleasure

all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals.

Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion,

Honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.

And you who seek to know Me,

Know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not,

Unless you know the Mystery

A mystery, a mystery

Were that what you seek you find not within yourself,

You will never find it without.

For behold, I have been with you from the beginning,

I have been with you from the beginning,

And I am that which is attained at the end of desire,

attained at the end of desire,

attained at the end of desire.

I Walk With The Goddess

Lyrics by Kellianna and Leanda Walker

I walk with the Goddess

The Goddess she walks with me

She is the clouds up in the clear blue sky

She is the ground beneath my feet

She is the oceans and the falling rain

She is the spark that lights my way

Magic of the Goddess

Lyrics by Kathi Wahls and Brian Morse

I go walking through my life

with my heart wide open

and the Goddess shines Her love through me.

Chorus:

Through you, through me

the magic of the Goddess is rising

It goes through you, through me

The magic of the Goddess is rising

I go walking through my life

with my eyes wide open

and the Goddess works Her magic through me.

I go walking through my life

with my mind wide open

and the Goddess shows my destiny to me

(Chorus)

Stonehenge

Mother help me

Mother heal me

Please release me

From all things worldly

That do not serve me

Mother love me

Within these stones

I feel the power

I am reborn

As I break these chains that bind

And now I’m floating

light as a feather

As I break these chains that bind

I’m gonna break these chains that bind

I’m gonna break these chains that bind

I’m gonna break these chains that bind

Yes I will break these chains that bind

Oh Blessed Mother

you empower me

yes You have shown me

just how to set myself free

And now I’m soaring

up in the clear blue sky

As I break these chains that bind

Yes I have broken these chains that bind

Yes I have broken these chains that bind

Yes I have broken these chains that bind

Yes I did break these chains that bind

Cakes and Ale (Winter)

With cakes and ale we end our spell

May the gifts of the Goddess nourish thee well

Merry meet marry part as we go our way

Merry meet, marry part though the circle remains

Til me meet again in the Ladys name

May the Circle Be Open

May the circle be open, but unbroken

May the love of the Goddess be ever in your heart
