Today I’m sharing a poem from the new book ‘The Green Temple’ and as you read you see that it’s about travelling shamanically and also about the spirit animals who may guide us as we do so, be it upper world, lower world or middle world. In it I speak of meeting the Elders of the Green Temple too. Arianrhod weaves it all, the Lady of the Silver Wheel who spins and weaves the threads that are the web of life. After the poem, I share a painting I did of Arianrhod. (If you’d like the book then hop over, contact me and I’ll send it to you. It is a free book and is there for any who feel the calling).
I am Arianrhod, the Lady of the Wheel.
It is not hard to sense me, just feel
The ether that is space, the stars all around
It is here Caer Sidi can be found.
Many ways to travel by tree, sea or star.
Know you’ll be guided, near and far.
Raven, Owl, Bear and Wolf are your friends
To travel with you as guides to the ends
Of the Earth and way beyond.
Do not fear them, they know you, of you they are fond.
Travel easy, travel fast in silver car,
It can take you oh so far.
Travel with the flowers and the spirits of the trees.
Travel on the winds, soar with the breeze.
I am here, I shall guide, for you it is time
To travel the Other World even in rhyme.
For words can transport you as music can.
Travel forth now and meet your clan.
The clan that are the Elders of the Temple of Green.
Upper World is where they may be seen.
Don the cloak of the green of the trees
And be transported on the next breeze.
Let the leaves be your carriage, green and fair.
They’ll lift you and soon you’ll be there.
Owl will guide with wisdom and watch your back.
No shenanigens, none of that tack.
It is safe, travel, meet with me.
For with me it is safe to be.
Wisdom and guidance are yours for the taking.
Do you see the point I am making?
Hold back no longer, surrender, just be.
Go with the flow, like the tide of the sea.
You are an ancient one who stepped up to the mark.
Go now, my pretty, soar like a lark.
