    The Most Important Druid Lesson of All – The Power of the Heart     I recently went to a Sunday service where folks believe that keeping one’s mind controlled and focused on positives like peace and abundance and health can manifest such things into a living reality. Manifestation into form is the magic everyone wants to access and use for their own purposes. And while I do agree that thoughts hold some creative power, what I’ve been taught on my thirty-year druid path isn’t nearly so simple. The closest thing to manifesting anything into physical reality I’ve ever observed was during energy school in 1996, when staff healers did…

    The Sacredness of Silence, the Goddess in Everything I watch so many of my friends, relatives, and neighbors race through the holiday season; creating elaborate rituals, shopping, wrapping, cooking, one detail after another to be attended to. And I recall doing the same myself when my children were young, before I began my druid path. And so, this month, I decided to write an article about the spirit nourishment that slowness and silence have brought to my life, especially during the winter season. As a druid, time in nature is food and drink to my soul. I couldn’t live without it. The first thing I notice whenever I take a…

    The Sacred Geometry of Nemetons In order to explain the sacred geometry of nemetons, I need to briefly explain the levels of light in the inner planes. My understandings about this topic came through my 30-year druid path, druidry and light healing both. The simple, meditative, healing process I use twice a day moved me gradually through many planes of light, which came into the ethers around me for a week or so and then moved out below, so I was always moving up, an ascension process basically. Altogether, there were 363 planes, separated into seven different inner worlds, or heavens. Each heaven was inhabited by different beings who came…

    The Light and Dark Halves of the Goddess As a light worker, I do self-healing meditations every morning and evening, a simple energetic process to turn ancient fears from my fall from heaven-to-earth into love. And for about 20 years now, I’ve been healing an old, old archetype that creates cancer, diseases of all kinds, starvation, death, and mainly control. My druid guides call her Isle (ishla, meaning mean-ness in Gaelic). But she lives on the dragon star, an Egyptian culture, and most people know her as Isis, the dark half of the goddess. I’ve had all manner of memories of past Egyptian lifetimes, similar Atlantean ones, too, in which…

    The Druid Garden, Edible Forest Magic Because I worry about the overuse of chemicals across the earth, monoculture on huge farms that leave the soil depleted, the clear cutting of trees for building, so soil that has taken 500 years to build up is washed away in the next big storm or two, I am hooked on edible forest gardens! They are meant to be as simple as can be, ending up as a hunter-gatherer’s dream come true. And EASY! All those Monsanto chemicals kill the network of tiny micronutrients in the soil, too, organisms that break down organic matter into forms the plants and trees can absorb. Without micronutrients,…

    House Cleansing, Connecting with the Spirits of a Place I recently moved into a new home, so the issues of cleansing and connecting with the land are particularly important to me right now. People can get quite fanatical sometimes about walking sunwise several times around a home before they barely set foot inside. But anyone moving in is standing on the shoulders of the person who recently vacated. So, I think it’s good to take a short space of time to feel what that person left behind, for it’s imprinted in the walls and soil, along with all the owners and the native peoples before them in layers below the…

    Inner Creates Outer ‘Inner creates outer’ is the only phrase my inner druid guides have repeated in my visions over many years. Usually they say nothing at all but simply stand waiting for me when I enter the spirit world, then silently lead me to a stone circle or nature sanctuary and let the transformative vision prepared for me unfold on its own. But this one phrase has been repeated at significant moments of budding awareness through all 38 years of my druid journey. Clearly, druids who remain silent 99% of the time want me to know this particular truth to my very core, inner creates outer. And whenever it’s…

    Druidry as a Path of Enlightenment I’ve seen a number of articles debating this topic, and I very much want to say that my own solitary druid path has been nothing but a path to enlightenment! An email from an acquaintance recently said how she was interested in druidry but didn’t know how to integrate it into her life. Well, my own path is the easiest thing in the world to integrate into anyone’s life because it’s so simple. I went to a school to learn energy healing 23 years ago and since then, I’ve done two half-hour meditations a day. The first one, in the morning, is when I…

    Contemplative Druidry During these dark winter days, when the pull inward is strongest, I want to bring up the topic of a contemplative branch of druidry. On my own path, I’ve been led into a silent lifestyle with two half-hour meditations a day, one focused on healing the planet and the other on whatever has arisen in my life that day. This practice has led me through a steady spirit ascension process, planes of light moving down into my aura for 2-3 weeks, then moving out as another color took its place from above. There have been 363 of these planes over 23 years of this continuing spirit practice, always…

    Midwinter and Christmas Spirit Magic   (Image from http://visitstonehenge.com/) As nearly everyone knows, light seeds of what will manifest during the coming year, are sent by the spirit world down Arthur’s sword of light to the base of everyone’s spine on Midwinter dawn. I can usually feel a sizzling at the base of my spine that day, when I first step out of my little cottage into the daylight. But there’s much more that follows after, which no one at all seems to recognize. As a light healer, reading energies, it’s easy for me to see these. And so, this month, I want to write about what I’ve observed over…
