Lady

She gently brushes my graying face
With her sweet and airy breath
Her musky fragrance pervades
The hallowed space around me
I have plumbed her depths
And I have drank her deeply
Yet, still she is a mystery to me

anima

She gave me life and sustenance
She washed away my pain with her tears
Her embrace is like eternity
She is beneath me and above me
She is always all around me
I breathe in her fragrance deeply
I am hers utterly, completely

Within me and without me
The divine waters ebb and flow
She is my soul. She is my Goddess
She is Life and she will be my death
She is the Grail that I have sought
She is the beginning and the end
She is this life that I have wrought

sheela

She gave me will to use or abuse
A gift from the Lady in the Lake
She waited patiently as I grew away
Wizened, she peeled away the years
And upon my return, I found an unspoiled maiden
Who took me back and lead me on
We danced together back to the one…
And eternity

The Mystical Hexagram – Countdown Deal

For the first week of December, we have set up an Amazon countdown deal for the kindle version of The Mystical Hexagram. It will start at 50% off on the 1st December.

The book explores a symbol. Not from some scholarly or deeply complex perspective, but seeing it as a representation relating to life and living. The forces and pressures that are associated with the hexagram are, after all the forces of life at both practical and Universal levels. By exploring and beginning to understand the symbol, we are able to learn and discover more about ourselves.

The meditations throughout the book take you on an inner journey of exploration, discovering the parallels between the self and the greater reality within which we live our lives. They illustrate the connection between the inner and outer world of the self and the cosmic forces of Creation. Having traced that connecting path, the meditations offer a practical way of applying that understanding.
In addition to the exercises the book includes two very special meditations, The Garden of Remembrance and the Circle of Healing. These two, we feel, you will want to revisit many times, taking away from the experience a sense of peace and beauty.
“Part intellectual journey, part esoteric exploration, at all times eminently readable, this short book takes us on a voyage of discovery through the deep seas of The Tree of Life, symbolism, Tarot, planets/metals, numerology, astrology, psychology, and alchemy.”
“Amazing book, a work of passion and dedication. This book isn’t simply another in a long line of books, but a true work of Art. A pure love for the subject,”
“Although I will, no doubt, be unraveling its many mysteries for some time, this book has helped shed light on a symbol that has, over the last few years, been a key player in leading me to mysteries of the Universe and my own Truth. For all seekers of truth, put this on your reading list!”
The kindle version can purchased here.

In the Domain of Asteroth

Several months ago I moved this blog to the WordPress.com set up from my own private hosting arrangement. It does seem to get better traffic and more readers and so I have moved my other blog too. My other blog, Asteroth’s Domain, is my original blog that in some form or other has been online since 2006. As you might imagine, its been through several reiterations but the posts there include material back to 2006. A word of warning! Asteroth’s Domain is explicitly about the occult, magic, alchemy, and reality as I see it. I don’t post there often. Perhaps once a month at most (and I will admit to adding an odd promotional item for my books there too) but if you are NOT into that kind of stuff, give it a miss. If you are, please go take a look and I hope you find something there to make you think.

The name Asteroth’s Domain wasn’t selected at random either. Asteroth is the name of a contact I established while working on the Servants of the Light first degree course in Houston, TX. Over 5-years of daily meditation and following the monthly lessons sent by mail from the Channel Isles had a huge impact on me. So much that I wrote a book about the whole thing – my first effort called Inner Journeys: Explorations of the Soul (Thoth 2005). Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki, the current Director of Studies, very much supported the idea and kindly wrote a foreword for the book as well.

Why Domain? Well, Asteroth introduced me to a couple of locations in hyperspace or on the Astral Plane if you want. One was a place to go to meditate and contemplate and this is where I would be joined by Asteroth in what She terms the Garden of Remembrance – hence I called it Asteroth’s Domain.

Anyway, this is my invitation to you all to come over and visit with me and Asteroth in our domain….. Hope to see ya’ll there!
