In the 2002 movie, Shackleton, Kenneth Branagh plays the wilful and persistent explorer. We see him canvassing for finance from visible supporters in the scientific […]

I’ve covered the three ‘Divine Laws’, so now I’m dealing with the first ‘Daily Law’ — the Law of Regulation. We all bump against this law when we seek to manifest our Soul’s Purpose, as agreed in our Divine Contract. There are many kinds of limitations for we humans, and negotiating them in order to […]

What – and where – is ‘the crystal sea’? And is it worth visiting?

Many ancient mystical texts describe visits to heavenly halls, where the floors or pavements are shining like crystal. The Victorian hymn which inspired the title of my novel, Across the Crystal Sea, tells us the songs of the ‘sinless’ will sweep across an ocean made of crystal. What can this ‘crystal’ experience be describing? The […]

The pineal gland – gateway to heaven

This is a very ancient image of an angel… not the oldest I’ve come across, but pretty old. It’s a carved relief from the palace of an Assyrian King, Sargon. Assyria is now Iraq. The reliefs were probably carved around 700 BCE, so nearly three thousand years ago, then discovered by Victorian archeologists, who collected […]

  • Bringing it all back home to the kingdom of Earth Wednesday 11 April, 2018
    The Earth element is the most dense, seemingly solid element. We tend to feel the three-dimensional world is fixed and settled but, like the other elements, Earth is living, growing and malleable. Everything is energy, some things vibrate more slowly than others and seem immoveable, but an advanced yogi can walk through a wall and […]

  • Comforting and sharing in the kingdom of Water Monday 9 April, 2018
    The kingdom of Water can soothe and nurture us, but it can also take our breath away and dampen our Fire. The human body is mostly made of water, which is an essential life-giving element, alongside the air we require for breathing. We are nourished by water and, when we step into a healing pool, […]
