This first book is a meditation handbook that presents a collection of some of the sacred sites and places I have experienced and sensed both in Britain and America.
The general format of the book gives a brief description of my experiences at each site with an image of the energies I see there, and a suggested meditation to offer a guide to sensing the energies I felt and saw at each site; maybe you the reader may encounter your own experiences! Alongside the description and meditation, I have inserted some of my poetry here and there where the topic of it is complementary to the sites presented.
Also included is a general history of each site, which complements the intuitive information and inspiration with that which is factual, and they complement each other, and in delving into the history and archaeology, it has deepened my understanding of these sites a great deal. I could also realise the mindset of the time, being more of a shamanistic nature.
I also wish to say that one hears differing reports on the ancients, being either very spiritual, and yet others talking of the sacrifices made, including the well-known Celtic wicker-men. I have focused on the spiritual as perhaps, like many societies at all times, there are spiritually minded people, and there are those who are materialistic and lacking in kindness, and their practices, being different would lead to the variation in standard practice at any given time in history.
Like at any time in the past, secret societies held sacred practice in high esteem and have guarded this even with their lives, but certainly, as we look to ley lines and all other ramifications, we are learning that the ancients had some valuable knowledge which we are beginning to regain, and it is worth our while investigating intuitively and every other way conducive to bringing light on any subject that will enlighten our understanding of ourselves, our environment and our universe.
My work is generally based on meditations and dreams, and it is my personal method of exploration into the nature of other realms through sensing and portraying the visual forms and qualities of energies in various places, and states of being. When I go to a site, I can see and feel the energy present like a shining energy coming through me, and I can also experience the energy of the site from a photograph. My paintings are created using watercolour as that medium suggests the ethereal realms most appropriately.
My interest and concern is that the paintings are of a healing and inspiring nature, for I have always been just as interested in healing as I have in art. I have considered taking up various forms of healing at various times. However, I know that my appropriate place is with creativity and seeing the focusing of harmony and healing through them as an offering to others to whom it is my greatest pleasure to be of service.
