The Holy Grail

What is the Holy Grail?

Many ask this question- and there are many interesting answers.

Basically, we don't know what The Grail is, as it has never been found, to our knowledge. However, it is described in many ways, and always as something of great healing and transformation!

Getting to Know the Goddess Course 1:1

Goddess-Pages online course is practical as well as educational, and has made me think about so many aspects of my life and society in general, as well as put me in touch with antiquity, with womanhood throughout the ages, and about many of the women in my life that have influenced me. I had never thought of ‘Goddess’ as a diminutive word, such as waitress, but She is the original, the first, She was the one and only, and therefore maybe I will attach a prefix such as this when describing Her. 
I have a connection with the Goddess and relate to many of Her archetypes. She is very healing, and when focussing, and meditating on ‘the Lady’ especially in Springtime, as Flora, my meditations are wonderful, and full of images and beauty of all kinds. I love the early archaeological discoveries of the sculptures of the ‘Venus’ types. I am quite tubby, and so I am reflected in these images. I am very concerned about the incredible temples in the Middle East war zones, unexplored, with the ground full of wonders, many, I am sure, would reveal much more about Her. I feel very aggrieved about the archaeological atrocities, despite many being in protected World Heritage sites. (Not to say anything about the animals, and rare species especially,that are badly affected by war, the ecological damage – as well as human suffering beyond our ability to imagine). I am against war, war on people, animals, and the delicate ecology of the planet.

London Spiritist Group

I was invited to attend a Brazilian Spiritist group and I arrived at the venue at 7pm when coffee and refreshments were served. It was explained to me that this course in spirituality is very popular in Brazil and has been brought to the UK along with books that are used as their source material. These are five books codified by Allan Kardec. At 7.30pm, we entered a very pleasant room and gathered to enjoy some calm background music. Each member in turn read from a book of spiritual wisdom and was able to make comments and ask questions on the text. These books, written in question and answer format, provide spiritual knowledge. After this, there was a lecture by a Brazilian speaker on a matter relating to spiritual life. The lecture was delivered in Portugese and there was a translator standing by. This section of the meeting offers a different subject each week though all are based ethical living and how to live a moral life by contributing to our world by paying attention to relationships, communal considerations, green issues, etc. Then we were invited to receive spiritual healing by way of a prayer and small glass of water.

Who was King Arthur?

The mystical story of King Arthur has intrigued me for a life time!

In 410 AD, after 400 years of management, the Romans left Britain leaderless and a vacuum was created where Angles, Saxons and Jutes invaded from the East to gain power. This was the Dark Ages. They pushed the indigenous Celts to the edges of the Western countryside. 

Legend tells us that Arthur was a Celtic Christian war lord, who, with his extraordinary sword Caliburn/Escalibur, fought victoriously in 12 battles against the invaders, killing 470 men single handed, but died tragically at the Battle of Camlan. 

Tintagel in Cornwall was an island of power in the Dark Ages. As the name suggests, it was the centre of the highly valuable tin trade, a commodity required across the Mediterranean to create the hardened metal of bronze. There is a legend that the Duke of Cornwall, Gorlois, and his wife, Igraine, lived on the island of Tintagel, and the ruthless Uther Pendragon, (the head of the dragon) under the power of the magic of Merlin the Wizard, slept with Igraine, and she bore him a son, whom she named Arthur, a name that means Bear.

The red dragon on the Welsh flag is said to be Arthur's standard and dates from the 9th century. There is a connection here! 

I love to visit Glastonbury Abbey. It was our most important religious establishment (after Westminster Abbey) and was said to have been founded by Joseph of Arimathea around the date of 62 AD when he arrived here following the brutal crucifixion of his nephew, Jesus, the Nazarene. This Abbey is where Arthur and his Queen are traditionally said to have been laid upon their deaths and in 1278, a sign was placed where the burial place was said to be. It was Henry VIII's Reformation in 1539 that destroyed this magnificent Abbey. However, the Church in early 1900s was curious about the truth of this legend and employed Bligh Bond to look for it. He used code and maths and mapped out the foundations of the building adding an area where Arthur was thought to have been buried in a burial ground now under the Lady Chapel. In 1918 Bligh Bond wrote 'Gate of Remembrance' which described his seance with an ancient monk and the Church banned him from the site. However, a burial place was found in a later dig which could be Arthur's last resting place.

Spiritual Power

The dawning of the Age of Aquarius filled many people with great enthusiasm and hope. The old patriarchal religions were seen as outmoded and having no answers to the problems of the modern world. During the latter part of the twentieth century, we heard from specialists in Eastern philosophies, Native American ways of knowledge, how to ‘be here now’, revelations from mystery and secret societies, sadly, all to no avail for true spiritual seekers! We have heard about and read ‘the Secret’, sought abundance, thought positive, fluffed up our self- confidence, felt the fear and done it anyway, we spent money we didn’t have due to the Law of Attraction, and where has all this lead us? I have spoken to many people who were convinced of New Age promises, but now they have lost their mortgages, their jobs are in danger, their pensions diminished, they are left peeved and disillusioned that they were misled.

Caring for Canines

RSPCA: 0300 123 4555 PDSA: 0800 731 2502 Blue Cross: 01993 8222651 

Dogs are excellent companions for all except young children. Walking a dog is an ideal way to keep fit and people often stop to enjoy a short conversation with someone with a dog. Dogs have been bred for 10,000 years to be a helper, guardian and “man’s best friend”. They come in a variety of sizes and there is a dog to suit everyone’s requirements. However, dogs have many needs. They can live for up to 15 years, they have daily needs for attention and are a considerable expense.

Channelling - An Ancient Art

Channelling is an immensely ancient ability that was used by prophets, sibyls, shamans and wisdom keepers of many of our earliest civilisations.

The process involves not only speaking to Spirit but also listening for a reply. However, there are many types from different realms, including negative and destructive ones, so it is important to contact a spirit that has something constructive to impart either personally or for our society or world. In the past, due to the need to identify and avoid low level spirits, the personality of the deity and the value system of the deity became defined, such as whether they were kind, peaceful and generous - or whimsical, mean and punishing. On a visit to Mount Sinai/Horeb, Moses channelled the 10 Commandments similarly other Old Testament prophets communed with the deity to gain wisdom also.
