For my UK friends, colleagues and anyone interested, spread the word
Looking for a new perspective, for a way to move forward, for a way out…
Things can fall into place in many different ways:
- through being patient
- through energies aligning fully with your vibration of need and desire
- through creating an opening for something new to come it
- through observing synchronicities daily
- through staying peaceful within yourself and trusting that all is the way it should be
- through clearing old clutter and releasing what no longer needed
- through the dark night of the soul, which, once passed creates a new environment
- through prayer and meditation with pure heart and intent on moving forward
- through insights whether they come in dreams or another healing space, like therapy
- through healing old patterns and addressing suppressed emotions and wounds
- through being honest with your emotions
- through facing shadow side head on with acceptance and compassion
- through embracing and comforting your inner-child
- through speaking the truth of the heart
- Walking in nature. Simple, yes I know, oh so powerful and often all that is needed

I am a bit late with this post, but couldn’t not share it, so here it is.
This year was the first time I visited the sacred site of Stonehenge. First I visited with my boys and it had a profound effect on me to the extent I couldn’t stay for too long due to becoming very emotional and deeply touched.
I felt like I was coming home. It was so deeply touching I held my breath and was transported into the core of nature, Earth, the sacred place of ancestors and knowing within me it was overwhelming, but this reaction precisely confirmed that my heart and soul belongs here, in this land of pure beauty and natural deliciousness.
My second visit was with my beloved during Summer Solstice, mid-summer day of Litha. I was overjoyed to come back and my experience was very different from the first time in terms of my emotions expanded into a mixture of joy, connectedness to spirits and people around me, to the light and darkness also.
The stones vibrate and the energy is very clear and constant. I felt almost electricity like currents running through me. It is not uncomfortable, but it is quite ‘shaking’, as if you are being recharged to the very core. When I touched or stood against a stone I felt as one with it, it swallows you up into its magnetic field and the energy is transmitted throughout the body in a very felt sense. You feel it strongly. It feels pure and vibrant. It is also very beautiful in a way it feels nourishing, soothing as if they say ‘don’t fear yourself, you are cherished’. What I saw a lot around the stones was a colour purple. It was everywhere and the energy when touching stones has that colour, it had for me. utterly beautiful.
Inside the circle the energy is pure beauty and the air is very different that to the outside. I felt like coming into a vault through an invisible door whichever way you come into a circle and there the air just hits you, the energy of purity spreads all around you. One can’t help but smile and the feeling of happiness instantly injected into you. You just feel like you want to dance and sing and hug the Earth like never before. It feels like love and it is everywhere in people’s faces, in friendly nods and touches and everything sort of flows in this bubble of magic and beauty.
Beating of the drums within the drum circle is very soothing, and pleasing to the ear and the body. This repetitive sound improvising and flowing up in the summer air joining all in mutual delight could not escape anyone. My husband was very engrossed in that experience and touched by what effect it had on him. He sat still listening to drumming for a long time. We both now considering getting drums. Delicious food for your spirit aligning all with the basic instinctual primal energy of a drum beat. Just wonderful.
The sunrise experience was delightful and the Sun appeared very slowly teasing and smiling at us all from behind the tress. It was taking its time and anticipation spread across the land. It was one of the most welcoming and fresh experiences, again rejuvenating to the soul. Another moment of pure beauty and joy in the heart.
Being surrounded by souls aligned with your own is such a deeply touching experience. It is unique and special as not often you are within a circle of energies perfectly understanding and accepting of your own vibration and purpose. There is something deeply trusting and comforting in that.
So, you are knowing of your own power and belonging to the Earth, come here. If you love time-travelling with other Shamans of the world and would like feel the deep connection with the pagan community, come to this sacred, immortal site. You will not be disappointed.
What is Magic?
It is a state of being when one is in alignment with the universal energies and able to focus their intention on bringing the energies together to manifest what is needed and desired. It is manipulation of energies and the ability to direct its flow in a direction and form that will bring a need or a desire to fruition.
Today we are celebrating Lammas 2015, the very first harvest festival of the year when Celtic God Lugh is present in its power of creativity, skill and talent. Today we are reflecting upon our results and looking back at the seeds that we had sown back in spring. Today we see the harvest of our labour, as it is in nature, so it is within us. We went through a cycle of birth and death and transformation again and again to get to this point when our labour is rewarded with fruits of imagination, intent and devotion to the path, craft, job, vocation, family, etc. It is gathering together in the moment of truth, here it is, we are here in this moment to witness what IS in front of us and make a decision on the direction forward.
Our allotment has been giving us gifts for the last couple of month and today, as I walk along the vegetable beds I smell maturity, nourishing scent of soil and a call to dig dipper into the Earth to bring up yet more gifts laying beneath. I dig up some carrots and what a satisfaction, as I pull them out one by one with anticipation and joy no knowing the exact shape, size or colour. In parallel with our own inner intentions when we set them we aim to achieve what we desired yet there is a state of unknowing that we have to be with, always, and it is beautiful, that feeling of anticipation of not knowing what is to come, what is going to manifest exactly. That is magic.
Moon cycles are important aspect in magic and each cycle corresponds to a particular phase in our reality and what we wish to manifest.
With the New/Dark Moon we plant seeds within our reality, our psyche wishing to see results manifesting all the way up to the Full Moon.
When the Moon is waxing we look to bring things IN, to bring IN more of what we desire.
At Full Moon, many spells will work great looking to maximise whatever you desire or to confirm something. Abundance, Success, Peace and Love spells will power up during magic working at Full Moon.
When the Moon is waning we release, let go of anything that no longer is serving us on our path towards wholeness.
I have a new e-guide coming up soon, which focuses on working with candles and oils in accordance with Moon cycles. It is a simple and beautiful way to work magic, which anyone will find easy enough to understand, digest and work with.
Lammas Blue Full Moon ritual and spell (31/1 August 2015)
I love performing Fire spells during Full Moon. Fire is such an active, dynamic, passionate and alive element, in which one can feel the energies of propelling things forward, burning away anything that stands in the way with an aim to clear the path for more beautiful things to come into our reality.
I did a Sigil spell this Full Moon. The energy was very concentrated and potent during this calm, mild and clear summer night. I sat outside with my Sigil rolled up ready for the burning ceremony in front of my cauldron. I felt great, energised and gazing into the silvery disc of the Lady Moon, I inhaled her deeply and exhaled any residue, which had no part in my being anymore.
I lit a red candle and placed my sigil in the flames focusing on the desire, wish, need, which was within the sigil and playing with the Fire through my eyes and hands I went deeply into the magic of working the energy. It danced and changed, increased and decreased in its intensity, faces came up in the wax and the flames, as well as ashes of the paper burnt. Mesmerising and deeply knowing feeling enveloped my senses as I sat on the grass watching the Fire burn. Beautiful!
I hope you all enjoyed the magical time of Lammas and the Blue Full Moon this year and manifested an open-heart to all the wonderful things that are yet to come, as the Earth turns its wheel taking us on many more discoveries, beautiful manifestations and joyous experiences.
Much love & Many Blessings!
