Selie Suffolk

I was born in what was once a faerie-filled land –

home to giants, dragons, druids and witches,

where Romans marched and Angles worshipped Thor –

the land of Suffolk contains ancient doors

to the Otherworld, the land of myth and powers divine

and those doors will once more open, at the appointed time.

As new houses are built on Suffolk’s pastures

ancestral remains are disturbed,

millennia old settlements and funeral sites

release their spirits amongst us.

The people here once followed the ways of the Sun and the Moon

they venerated rivers and trees, their ancestors and the Earth,

as they mined for flint then tin then copper and iron

they learnt mastery of earth and fire

but humanity still has to learn mastery of the air

– the element of mind –

in order to reach a higher

state of evolution.

A higher state is really a return

back to Source connection, to the Otherworld,

with an understanding

that we’ve been lost in a dream,

and with a vision

of where we can go from here.

10000 years this land has been loved

by people benefiting from its bounty

which is why in the Middle Ages

Suffolk was known as the Holy County.

Selie Suffolk suffered the pain of

Protestants closing monastic communities,

Catholics burning Protestants

and Protestants burning Witches.

Suffolk became an industrialised farmland

feeding the growing hungry capital.


The land fell asleep, as did the people

Selie became Silly

old ways discarded

the sacred rejected

the magical ways forgotten –

but only for a time,

nothing is lost forever –

the holy spirit of Suffolk

and the land everywhere

waits for humanity to get it together

to become more kind and more aware.

Then the faeries will return

the dragons, druids and witches

they never really went far away

they just got buried within us.

i am shokti, lovestar of the eurofaeries, aka marco queer magician of london town. i explore the links between our sexual-physical nature and our spirits, running gatherings, rituals and Queer Spirit Festival. i woke up to my part in the accelerating awakening of light love and awareness on planet earth during a shamanic death-and-rebirth process lasting from January 1995 to the year 2000, and offer here my insights and observations on the ongoing transformation of human consciousness, how to navigate the waves of change, and especially focusing on the role of queer people at this time.
