Inspiration & articles related to consciousness, dowsing and earth energy

Life is a magical journey and all the answers already exist somewhere out there. Sometimes we stumble across them in the form of articles we read, news we hear or symbolic messages we find on our daily path. These are some that inspired me or at least make me think deeper about what's beyond the obvious!

A marriage of heaven & earth in Glastonbury Abbey

Adventures in Avalon

Drove up to Glastonbury to spend time near /on the meeting of the Mary & Michael earth energy lines in Glastonbury Abbey. After a smooth and blessed non-stop 3 hours drive, upon entering the town, two very low flying crows choose my car to pass over in a ‘welcome’ flight. At the Abbey parking there was 1 parking place left, obviously arranged by my Parking Angel, so I thanked it and manoeuvred my car into the tight spot, got out, tucked the mirrors in and stretched my legs. Ah, it’s been a while since I was here. More than a year ago. I realised I didn’t have enough change for the parking meter and needed a way to change some money. Luckily, my favourite mushroom pasty baker, Burns The Bread, had opened a little shop on the parking’s corner. I walked into the store and scored my lunch plus got small change back for the meter. Yay, two objectives settled with one action. Armed with a bag filled with winter warmers, I walked into the Abbey Grounds and greeted the Holy Thorn descendant.

Wassail Traditions: Awakening Nature

Good health!


During January, communities in Britain gather in orchards to bring a blessing to the trees. It’s called ‘Wassail’ and originates from ‘waes hael’ which could be translated into ‘be healthy’ or ‘be whole’. Wassailing is the echo of rituals from the past when people would toast to the last harvest in late autumn and share the drink with the earth in order to bless its health for the coming Spring and to repel any bad influences. The deeper motivation being to safeguard a good yield in the next harvesting season.  

In modern times, this is still the motivation but the time of blessing has been moved to January. The Wassail was preferably held on the last day of the 12 days of Yule with the traditional preferred date being January 17th because this is the ‘old twelfth night' (according to the pre-Gregorian calendar). On the Gregorian calendar it is held on January 5th or 6th. Which coincides with the Christian “Ephiphany' or ‘Three Kings’ celebration.

Does the earth communicate in sound and geometry?

One of the things that I find really interesting is the link between sound/vibration, its geometric shapes and the language of earth energies. Long time ago, Hamish Miller and friends, found that where two earth energy lines cross, a node point was dowsable. Very often this node point would have a geometrical shape (see Hamish' s books In Search of the Southern Serpent and It's Not Too Late from Penwith Press). Now, this geometrical shape was seen to morph over time. When I put this information next to my dowsing results of Kynance Gate, where earlier people seem to have been aware of sounds coming from the earth at particular spots, then it doesn't surprise me that this sound has a dowseable geometrical shape and that it morphs over time.

Think of the influence of the seasons, the moon, eclipses, focused intent etc. This would all affect the geometrical shape. But when it does, does this then mean that the earth's sound/vibration has changed. And if yes, is sound/vibration the language of earth? I've attended a special gathering of likeminded souls way back in June 2008 when sounds coming from the earth were made audible by using a human, a stone and focused group intention (under the guidance of Tareth, Glastonbury) as a channel to manifest the sound coming from the earth. It was amazing to hear the sounds! John Reid later researched the sounds using his CymaScope and came back for an evening of presenting the results. He showed us the geometrical shapes that were made by this sound from the earth that had been recorded on that occassion. One of those shapes was a very distinct five pointed star, but there were many other shapes as well. I wonder whether the earth uses these as a language?

Spirit of Hawthorn on video?

Now, today I’ve got a lovely story to share. I’m still excited by it! Here it is: I was standing guard next to Skye. She’s an elderly dog who really can’t be left unsupervised when she goes out to do her business. Sometimes she falls over and needs a hand to get back up again. I’m happy to be those loving hands. In most cases when she goes out, she just stands there. Soaking up the environment and sniffing the latest news carried to her by a Summer breeze. While keeping an eye on the dog, my attention wandered to the hawthorn tree, just a few meters away. And for the first time I noticed a funny kind of green hanging beard in one of the branches facing me. It seemed to be the only place with a ‘moss beard’ that was made from lichen (Lichen is a composite organism). Curious it should only be present in that one spot of the entire tree.

Step Beyond Radio Interview

Listen to an interview with Shamanic Dowsing on Step Beyond radio by Deby Gould.

There are no boundaries

Kala ~There are no boundariesGiving things a name, or label, makes it easier for humans to establish a mental connection to 'something'. It would be a challenge to address something that is too diffuse to make sense of. Hence we create sets of boundaries that can be labeled. In essence everything is made out of the same source. In the way I conduct shamanic dowsing, when I would like to establish a friendly 'mindmelt' with, let's say, the Spirit of Stone, in order to have a conversation about its unique perspective and particular knowledge, I do so from a perspective of knowing that this 'Spirit of Stone' I'm addressing is just a focal point within Source (or God or the Universe, pick your label).

When I connect to Spirit of Stone, I'm am reverting to working with manageable portions that narrow down the frequency level and intent of communication. Imagine if you will, that you are in a library filled to the brim with shelves and books. You want to connect with Spirit of Stone which is a chapter in a book somewhere. To find the chapter containing the information from the Spirit of Stone, you focus on what you think it is (to you!) thus applying boundaries and a label, and then let yourself be guided by means of dowsing to the right information/chapter.

It is only by narrowing down (and thus applying imaginary boundaries), that you have a clearer idea of the connection you want to establish. You still know that the chapter is part of the whole library but you want that specific information and tuning into the right 'address' helps. It is an aid. The chopping up in a set of boundaries serves a purpose. Once the chapter has been read, the best thing to do is to respectfully close the book, put it back on the shelf and find yourself returning to the awareness of the totality of this library. Where, by the way, you too are currently a chapter in a book, on the shelf of Life on Earth, in the greater library of One. We are all stories in the end, just make it a good one, yes?
