Kilmartin Glen: A Thin Place Tour With Mindie Burgoyne

Kilmartin GlenI’ve had an energy adventure today. A trip to Kilmartin Glen up near Lochgilphead in Scotland. A place of ancient energy sites dating back 4-5,000 years.

I had been invited to join a group tour run by my friend Mindie Burgoyne, the Travel Hag blogger, writer and tour organiser. She and her husband Dan had brought a group of people from the United States. I was delighted when Mindie invited me to join them at Kilmartin Glen to see Dunnad Fort and the remains of cairns, circles and cists. There are certainly plenty of them there. The fort is a testing climb but the view from the top is spectacular. The site has been occupied since the Iron Age.¬†It’s also the place where kings were crowned.

Using my pendulum I stoped in various places on the rocky hill fort to tune into the energy. I like to strip away the layers of energy impressions to see how far back I can track human occupation. I liked the protected feel I got from the energy flow. All down through the timeline. I also hit a deep band of ceremonial energy related to the creation of kings. It was strongly masculine, rather fierce and very proud. I could also see all across Kilmartin Glen. The hill fort would have been very noticeable from any approach towering above the surrounding flat land. There is a footprint in the rock and a bowl shape near it for water. I felt i had to share some energy with the place as a repayment for ‘reading’ it’s aura.

When we came down from the hill fort I went with the tour to other sites in the Kilmartin Glen. With the help of a local guide I was able to understand the layout and timeline of some of the remains.

There is certainly still energy in the standing stones and the circle we visited. I was delighted to find the Mother Stone of one circle at Temple Wood. She gave me a lovely burst of energy as she acknowledged my contact with her. That’s why I love Thin Places. The point where the energies of the past are close to the surface. And the places where I can step more easily between worlds. In fact, anyone can if they open up their intuitive abilities. So it was interesting to discuss with the other people what they were experiencing. Sharing information can often confirm a single experience because others have had it too.

That’s what I like about evidenced based work. I find it really useful to validate what I have sensed with the experiences of other people. And this very friendly group of people were happy to share their thoughts and feelings. In the end, that’s the best outcome for all of us. To go on an adventure, experience the energy and share our thoughts. I enjoy listening to different points of view. Or questions. Because it makes me think about my own experiences. And what they might mean or be interpreted as. Of course my Guides love to send me on these experiences. Because I learn so much. And get inspiration for further explorations I can carry out.

I’m sure I will be back at Kilmartin Glen and Dunnad Fort. There is a museum to explore, more monuments and plenty of walking routes to try. All to tune into the energy and find out more about this Thin Place. I cant’s wait!

Honouring My Energy

It’s been another day of honouring my energy. Whether having a catch up, sorting out bills or working on new events I have been noticing the ways in which my energy flows.

I’ve written a lot before about energy. Because when I look at the world using my intuitive senses I see things very differently. My brain processes the energy flows and pops the information alongside what I’m seeing and hearing with my physical senses. And there can be quite a mis-match. It’s my job to make sense of these details. Yesterday it was all chaos. Too much information. Today it’s become a lot clearer. That’s because I’m honouring the intuitive knowledge I’ve processed.

Living this intuitive life means I have to weigh everything by it’s energy. Am I putting myself in the flow of positive energy? Or stepping back into old or stuck energy? Also, am I balancing both my feminine and masculine energies? When I consider a new opportunity or refocus on things I’m already doing what energy am I giving and receiving? I know I’m asking myself lots of questions but how will I know what to do if I ignore my intuitive information. I might fall into the trap of following my Ego Mind. And that is dangerous. Because my Ego Mind has no intention of honouring my feelings. It wants to keep me safe by limiting me.

I know it can be difficult to accept the information from our psychic senses. I had a battle to get myself honouring the way I was receiving these details. And to even consider that they might be facts to pay attention to.

Even if I accept the facts are there do I use them or ignore them. How do I trust what I am sensing? I know that it has been a slow and steady process for me. Noticing the energy I am living in. Trying to do things differently so I change that energy. Getting it better. Finding out it’s worse. Lots of trial an error. Until I’ve reached a point where I completely accept the intuitive material and let it help me steer my life. Today has been about revisiting quite a few things I do. Checking if I am honouring my intention to give and receive positive energy flows. Making sure that I balance my natural preference to be in my masculine energy with enough of a feminine boost.

For I’m at the beginning of a whole new phase in my life. I can take my work in any direction I please. More of this and less of that. Starting new projects or sticking with the tried and tested. It’s like starting all over again. Yet exciting to be deciding things differently. I’m moving into choosing what I want from my life once more. It’s important for me to include much more feminine creativity in what I do. To be able to express passion in my work and play. And to generate a feeling of wellbeing within myself. I know that if I do that it will spill over onto the people I connect with. I can send them that positive energy boost to use in any way they like. That is a great goal to have. So I’m going for it full speed ahead.
