As red lists continue and delays to freedom arrive, we’re losing hope for a summer holiday abroad.
But don’t despair. You have options beyond yet another weekend camping in the rain.
Britain is, if nothing else, one of the most ancient magical places in the world, and this opens the doors to the spiritual pastime of psychic questing.
Never heard of it? Read on, because it might be about to become your new favourite way to spend the weekend.
Psychic questing is basically exploring the history of a particular site using both historical records and evidence as well as messages or information you might tune in to receive from a spirit guide who resides there.
It sounds a little out there, we know, but don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it, right?
It was a thing in the 1980s when many psychics, adventurers and hardcore archaeologists were all on the hunt for the Holy Grail and the Spear Of Destiny (holy artefacts linked to Christ’s crucifixion).
Many felt that the quest for the Grail was as much a spiritual, inner journey as an actual treasure hunt and, along that pathway, the worlds of psychic information and archaeological evidence collided, creating psychic questing, which used psychically received thoughts and information (be it via a dream, meditation, vision or spiritual encounter) to explore the history, seek an artefact or become personally enlightened.
In Tibetan Buddhism, psychic questing is known as the Terma (‘hidden treasure’) tradition, and those monks who become involved in Terma hunting are known as Tertons (‘treasure finders’).
However, similar methods of discovery have been used for thousands of years by enlightened individuals all over the world and across cultures.
Psychic questing can begin with a strange dream, a vision, a strong urge to visit somewhere or seek something, or a message from a meditation. The next stage is usually material and real world exploration, such as researching a place’s history, visiting it, confirming facts or digging into the possibility of what you felt or saw.
After some research has been done, a visit to the site itself can involve a meditation to find and connect with the so-called genius loci, ‘spirit of the place’, or site guardian, who may provide information in order that the quest might continue.
It very much depends what your psychic quest actually is, dictated by your original dream or vision or feeling. You might be looking for something that is lost or buried (and therefore maps, plans and maybe a metal detector are required). It might be about seeking the history of a person who lived there (and therefore family history, census information etc may be required).
Sometimes, however, psychic questing does not have to involve external or real-world exploration. It can simply revolve around psychic experiments and meditations, which all help the quester glean the insight and knowledge they are seeking.
No one is expecting any of this to re-write history. This is fun, this is play, this is a wonderful blend of archaeology, history and psychic exploration.
A related modern phenomenon is the realm of time slips – a paranormal occurrence where it’s suddenly possible to see the same spot you’re currently in but from many years or even centuries ago.
This has happened to hundreds of people in hundreds of different places (oddly, Liverpool’s Bold Street is a real hotspot for it).
No one knows for sure if this is a mystical experience, a brain glitch where we might ‘fill in the blanks’ to complete the scene in front of us, or an actual physical experience.
Einstein’s general theory of relativity suggests that if you travel faster than the speed of light, you will travel back in time, but this would require an infinite amount of energy, which is therefore physically impossible.
Some of Britain’s most spiritually charged places (and therefore a good place to focus your psychic questing efforts) include:
- Stones of Stenness, Orkney
- Boa Island, Northern Ireland
- Blickling Hall, Norfolk
- Croft Castle, West Midlands
- Buckland Abbey, Devon
- Ham House, Surrey
- Newstead Abbey, Nottingham
- Dunster Castle, Somerset
You can either head to these places as a staycation, or just focus your psychic efforts on the locations from home.
Have fun, see how you find it, and enjoy.
If it doesn’t click for you, don’t panic – you can still go on that camping trip.
