Avebury and Energised Places

We have moved close to Menez Bré which holds a place in the local mythology as a mass exorcism site. There are other stories. There is a bard of Menez Bré. There is a lovely chapel up there and, depending upon the weather, it can be seen from many kilometres away. People build churches on “energised” sites. Christianity took the sites of ancient culture and built their cathedrals there. These sites can be called power spots. Table Mountain in South Africa is an immense power spot of much energy. Winchester Cathedral is pretty special energetically.

There are fairs and events on Menez Bré in the summer and autumn.

There is a monolith nearby in our commune and there are neolithic stone sites scattered across Brittany. The Carnac stones {Steudadoù Karnag} are particularly impressive. I am big fan of stone circles and things ancient. I used to go visit Avebury stone circle at least once a year. It has retained its mystique better than Stonehenge. If you get there before the crowds it is special and invigorating. People do all sorts of rituals there, you can find daisy chains, candles, and things tied in the trees. It is used as a place of invocation, of healing, of magic and for meditation. It is a lens.

There is much Celtic mythos underpinning the Celtic folk

“The Celtic languages (usually /ˈkɛltɪk/, but sometimes /ˈsɛltɪk/) are a group of related languages descended from Proto-Celtic. They form a branch of the Indo-European language family. The term “Celtic” was first used to describe this language group by Edward Lhuyd in 1707, following Paul-Yves Pezron, who made the explicit link between the Celts described by classical writers and the Welsh and Breton languages.

During the 1st millennium BC, Celtic languages were spoken across much of Europe and central Anatolia. Today, they are restricted to the northwestern fringe of Europe and a few diaspora communities. There are six living languages: the four continuously living languages Breton, Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Welsh, and the two revived languages Cornish and Manx. All are minority languages in their respective countries, though there are continuing efforts at revitalisation. Welsh is an official language in Wales and Irish is an official language of Ireland and of the European Union. Welsh is the only Celtic language not classified as endangered by UNESCO. The Cornish and Manx languages went extinct in modern times. They have been the object of revivals and now each has several hundred second-language speakers.

Irish, Manx and Scottish Gaelic form the Goidelic languages, while Welsh, Cornish and Breton are Brittonic. All of these are Insular Celtic languages, since Breton, the only living Celtic language spoken in continental Europe, is descended from the language of settlers from Britain. There are a number of extinct but attested continental Celtic languages, such as Celtiberian, Galatian and Gaulish. Beyond that there is no agreement on the subdivisions of the Celtic language family. They may be divided into P-Celtic and Q-Celtic.

The Celtic languages have a rich literary tradition. The earliest specimens of written Celtic are Lepontic inscriptions from the 6th century BC in the Alps. Early Continental inscriptions used Italic and Paleohispanic scripts. Between the 4th and 8th centuries, Irish and Pictish were occasionally written in an original script, Ogham, but Latin script came to be used for all Celtic languages. Welsh has had a continuous literary tradition from the 6th century AD.”

The founding saints of Brittany have Welshmen amongst them. In London the woman who lived in the flat below mine was Cornish and we had a rapport about the Piskies and many other things. There is an intuitional thing, unspoken and yet shared.

Just as the Celtic languages have been driven to the Western edges of Europe, so have the active planetary prana sites. Humans have lessened the efficacy of the others by their acquisitional materialist hedonism and sheer number density.

The old ways are at risk of extinction. Some bad will go, some good might be lost. The sense of Aslan and the deep magic is that of the ultimate triumph of light over manipulative and coercive darkness. People forget about the deep magic. Not me.

Anáil nathrach, ortha bhas betha, do cheol déanta.

The blood line of this physical vehicle reaches back to Beddgelert and Snowdonia. The vehicle is of an ancient Celtic stock.

I am happy doing the charm of making, from a film, in Tibetan deep voice chant. If you heard me, it might tickle your shackles and be a trouser changer. I will do it now.

This morning I had a dream that might scare the shit out of others.

So, brothers of the darkened face, are we game on?

I sound for you the charm of making…
