Finding new ways in which we can spontaneously create using the power of our imaginations with visualisations for our own self development and balance is simpler than we often allow ourselves to believe. Like any practice it requires a willingness to learn and develop through trial and error – going beyond inner fears and doubts into the strength and gentle flowing certainty.
This sound healing/ guided meditation piece is an attempt to give an example of how we can do this. You don’t need training or special skills to be playful and explore what you can envisage. Comparisons are unnecessary and lack appeal when we feel the beauty of your own methodology. Make and design your own inner worlds, and visions and access and unlock the potential of your own ability to forge new pathways to your essence. To those that feel they cant do this or do not know how we do it constantly. Our thoughts and feelings are often accompanied by visions and scenes, and again may often include many additional senses like smell, taste and audio too. So change the imagery of our thoughts, changes the talk, the sounds the music of our being and realities. Alter one alter all. Adjusting the view changes the sound and vice versa.
This is an experimental sound healing piece, centered around the use of the orbital frequencies of 10 planetary bodies of our solar system in unison – in one sound. Across two main octaves, the piece employs a variety of Pythagorean intervals that weave throughout.
The sacred ten. Ten sounds in unity from our galaxy. So the idea for this piece is to assist and manifest healing potential, self-transformation and balance. To promote healthy alignment of the infinite universe that is us. The symbol of the cauldron in this instance – to be viewed perhaps as a receptacle of the beautiful ingredients we can stir into the mix. To fuse and create new harmony. The cauldron of transformation and joy. The playful way we can choose the nutrients we stir into the food of creation and existence. Ten joys from the heart outwards and inwards with no sense of separation.
So you can perhaps visualise yourself seated at the bench of becoming – and using the sound and being with the sound, and the inseparable way that you sound with that – imagine that you stir into the cauldron of intention those harmonious and beneficial ingredients using your intuition, and love. Know through the open heart and its loving kindness as you stir, that these beautiful intentions are already manifesting and taking place. Visualise how that feels, its wondrous shape and taste – an inner smile of abundance and clarity. A gentle nod to the view from the veranda of your soul.
Visualise yourself in unity with no sense of separation. Fully able and articulate to manifest and bring about the changes in your physical life, without grasping and trying to grab and fostering expectations, then wearing a sense of failure if they fail to originate. Let go of that into the totality of your being, and allow through the myriad of appreciation and acceptance that all moves in the beautiful dance. Relax into that unity and harvest its potential and bliss into the very present- the right now.
Enjoy the blessings of unity that you can create for yourself.
Improvised polyphonic recitation of the Druid chant of the Awen from the forest stream of Dearbhanu in Devon UK. A simple raw honest field recording of the chant from beside a local forest stream in a cave. A way through using sacred syllables laden with intention but also freed from the constraints of grasping and striving – searching and finding. Allowing the self-arising clarity and inspirations to flow unhindered by the mind and heart. A relinquishing of attachment to retrieving the lost and perhaps more a remembering an active participation to that which is already there and abundant.
While inspiration is perhaps never continuous and more prone to a tidal coming and going like the breath of life – there is a wellspring from which we can always drink and discover new beautiful ways to learn from it. Any word can be used as a catalyst with sound and an intention set, but words which have been used and uttered by others many times with truth in their heart have a flavour that endures and continues the spiral in all directions.

There often seems to be a lack of energetic practises aimed at men online so here for the men (and women too) are two mudra beneficial for men’s sexual health, empowerment and general wellbeing. These two Linga mudra can help alleviate sexual issues and also just to promote general sexual health for men. Also very good for strengthening the immune system and fighting coughs and colds. You shouldn’t do it too often as it works with fire element and too much of any one element is not balanced. Breathe in the energy through the secret chakra up the spine to the crown and down again towards the sacred area. Hands should be at the abdomen. Visualise the strength and solidity and purification. If you want to make sound with it too – wonderful activate the intentions and be free with yourself let go of any stagnant or restrictive energy and feelings. The second mudra combines the feminine with the masculine- the shiva linga mudra.
Shiva linga mudra is a Sanskrit term for a hand gesture that is a representation of the form of Shiva lingam worshiped in Hindu temples. Shiva is the Hindu god of destruction. Linga is derived from li, meaning “to dissolve,” and gam, meaning “to move on”; and mudra means “sign,” “energetic seal” or “gesture.”
This mudra increases heat in the body so this mudra is to be performed only for 15 minutes or less. But when there is congestion and cold you can continue this mudra for 30 minutes twice a day . Drink plenty of water and discontinue once any symptoms have been alleviated- and of course always talk to your doctor for any genuine health concerns- this practise is to complement not subvert professional medical advice. When in doubt contact your doctor first always.
Linga mudra is formed by interlocking the palms but keeping the left thumb erect pointing upward.
This is the Druid chant of the Awen set to a background of the sacred 528 Hz frequency. This music is intended as healing and shamanic medicine and less for entertainment. This music uses a five octave pentagon- five octaves for five elements within and without. This music uses Pythagorean intervals and the centaur microtonal tuning to help create healing and harmony. It has been recorded in the forest, in caves and by springs. Another essence of this music is like the wellspring of transformation. So this track is about finding the Awen (flowing inspiration) like a spring, then using it to transform your body, your speech and your mind.
This track is not just for the Pagan community, but for the transformation and harmony of all. The opening of the heart, the expansion and nourishing, the completion and birthing. So it is ideal for meditation, contemplation and finding inspiration and shamanic journeying.In this music you will hear the rush of wind, the flowing of springs, the call of birds and the sacred grove.
This music has been composed, recorded and created during meditation and journeying to help facilitate transformation for the listener.
Our latest release The Canticle of the Serene Heart on Jamendo is an improvised vocal sound healing meditation to assist and promote harmony and a peaceful heart.
Recorded in the forest with a iPhone, this track is composed of multiple vocal improvisations around eachother, layered at times randomly. Intentionality plays a key role if not the most critical when it comes to sacred sound- so the sounds have come together for the purpose of assisting/ fascilitating the listeners journey into a deepening flowering of the heart. The clean clear nature of the mind.
I like recording this way, out in nature no equipment and expensive plugins and hardware, just a phone and cheap mic and the imagination. So in the track you will hear rain, wind and streams and oceans and leaves blowing in the winds- I did not try to edit them out. This track is inspired by my Druidic work with the forest and nature and the elements in general. I was lucky enough to have animals guest on the track too – many birds and other beauties 🙂
I’d like to share this simple but tasty and effective remedy for colds, coughs and general respiratory complaints and issues. I found it best to use fresh ingredients, preferably hand picked but bought and/or dried will work well also.
• one handful of fresh Elderflowers
• a sprig of Rosemary
• a sprig of Thyme
• two or three tablespoons of lemon juice
• one tablespoon of honey
How to Make :
You simply add the elderflowers with as little stalk as possible to your cup. Crush and break up the Rosemary & Thyme and add that in. Add the Lemon juice and Honey to taste and pour over boiled water that’s cooled for maybe five minutes. I find it best to not add water that’s just boiled as the intense heat will affect the medicines within. Stir well to dissolve the honey and mix the ingredients and enjoy.
