What if Nothing is Real?

Anyone that knows me will know I am not content with mainstream explanations. I will go away and read the science – the papers written by scientists and usually peer reviewed to boot. They will also know I am interested in reality and what it is probably down to two things that happened to me as a child. The first was having this vision that I wasn’t really here but attached to what you would now term a virtual reality machine. The second was the little green man that jumped out of my wardrobe mirror, shot me and then jumped through the window. I can hear one of two of you murmur I may not be quite sane. OK but do bear with me. If you get into physics –

The Magical World of G. Michael Vasey – Episode 2: Talking Magic and The Initiate with Sue Vincent

  In this episode, I continue investigating the idea of ‘connecting with the land’ talking with Sue Vincent, who together with Stuart France, has been doing exactly that in the UK for the last several years and written a series of 8 books detailing their investigations. We discuss some of the locations that got them started that are documented in their book ‘The Initiate’ and consider the nature of Earth energies and indeed magic itself. About Sue Vincent I am a Yorkshire born painter and writer, living in the south of England. I paint the strange things that come as images in dreams and fantasies and write about life as it happens. I was raised in a spiritually eclectic family in a landscape where myths and legends were woven into

Taking on Perun

Encouraged by my current reading of Alan Richardson’s latest book – Dark Magery – I have been exploring the God form. It’s not something I have ever attempted much in the past but for the last few days, I have been knocking on Perun’s door. Perun is the slavic God of thunder and one of the most important in the pantheon. I must say, at first, I got nothing much at all and was rather disappointed but then last night, I had some very strange dreams….. and today in short session where I took on the form of Perun in my imagination, some very strange thoughts. What I sensed was that Perun and the slavic culture of that time was really quite alien compered to now. For them, I got

Mapping The Špilbirk Serpents

Tonight, I was able to get out and continue mapping the energy lines at Brno Castle – Špilberk. I managed to sort out a few things – one of which was to confirm that there are three lines not two – three dragons! The interesting and confusing thing had been that two are parallel and run pretty close together and this had me confused as I was initially seeing it as one line when in fact, it was two. What intrigues me is that these two lines actually seem to go around the castle while the third which crosses goes through it. The northern of the two NW-SE lines also literally goes straight through the front door of an Orthodox church built in the early 1900s called St. Wenceslas and

Seeking the Magic and Eternal Youth….of a Sort.

Tonight, I have had one of those evenings where I think back accompanied by music of the time. I miss Texas or I miss the life I had there. But then I had a thought. My memories of that time or indeed any time in my life are vague with very few clear memories. Knowing memory, even those clearer images may not be real at all but deeply tinted with a certain wishfulness or nostalgia. I have photos, the recollections of others – my sons for example as well however, the truth may be that my past is as vague and as unreal as my future because my memories are selective and easily reprogrammed by constant use. Life back then was as life now most likely and I look back

An Amazon #1

It has been a while since I felt that little thrill you get when Amazon places that small but oh so important icon next to your book image – Best Seller!!! But, it has happened again! Chasing the Shaman, my latest book, is (as of writing) #1 in new releases in Gaia Religions category! I’m very pleased and hope that it gets some attention now via the Amazon engine.     For me, this is yet another bit of magic that proves the magic that I wrote about in the book….. And, if you have read my recent blog posts, you will know that the ‘magic’ continues… I’m now hoping to see a review or two (and hoping they are positive). Meanwhile, to buy the book in Kindle or paperback

Hunting Fire Dragons in Moravia

I’d read a rumor about a fire breathing dragon that flew around the Castle of Drahotuš near Olomouc. I’m sorry but I can’t resist investigating such rumors. So today, I and a friend set off to the Hell valley looking for the ruins of an old Castle and to see if we could find the dragon.     We drove the 1 hour 20 minute trip from Brno in beautiful weather eventually arriving at Podhoři around noon. Then began the search for the Castle as it didn’t appear to be signposted at all. In the end, we asked a villager who gave us a circular route to get there and back. Hrad Drahotuš isn’t very well know to tell you the truth. It hasn’t been well preserved unlike its nearby

The Trigger for Chasing the Shaman

The idea fr my new book – Chasing the Shaman – a sort of follow on to my very first book – Inner Journeys – came from a startling and accidental meet up with a real live shaman here in Brno. Unfortunately, that first time when he scared me in an out of the way seating area beneath the Castle here, I didn’t have the guts to ask him what he was doing and why? And perhaps, more importantly, would he please teach me! I know some people will simply think I have a strong imagination – I do! – but I have been watching for signs of this guy for two Moons now – yes, Moons. He is constantly working with is stones and other objects in plain sight
