A few years ago I went to Ireland. It was a pilgrimage of sorts, as I was the first person in my family to return to the home country on either side of my family. That part hit me as soon as the plane landed in Shannon…I was suddenly filled with overwhelming emotion, as if all of my Ancestors who had walked before me gave a sudden sigh of relief, like returning home after a long trip…For our soul remembers our blood and the land of our Ancestors. I was in Ireland for 17 days & spent most of my trip in County Claire where my mothers family hails from. My dad’s family was filled with travelers, peddlers and the like so the country itself would be home to them. I felt my Ancestors a lot on the trip, my father in particular as he was excited to be returning home & knew that I would be leaving a bit of him there on the west coast…
As much as I went to Ireland to connect with the land of my Ancestors, I had my most profound connection with a much more famous Spirit- Biddy Early. Biddy Early was known throughout Ireland as a Witch, who lived from 1798-1874. She was an Herbalist, Healer & Psychic known to speak with the Fae Folk and to possess a blue glass bottle gifted to her by said Fairies that was connected to her fame as a healer. It was also said that if you went looking for Biddy for healing, she would most likely find you before you found her…knowing that you were in need of her services. When I was planning my trip I decided that I really wanted to find Biddy Early’s cottage. Everything I read on it said that it was difficult to find; over grown with vegetation on a rural road on the outskirts of a tiny town named Feakle, County Clare, Ireland.
Being a Medium is so much more then talking to peoples loved ones who have passed into Spirit. It also allows me to experience historical and sacred sites on a deeper level, often accompanied by personal visits. Many people who visit sacred & historical sites have emotional reactions there, as well as catching glimpses of Spirit on pictures. We as a people are much more Psychically sensitive then we know. All of us have the ability to sense the Spirit world to some degree. It’s important to get out of our head-space, stop over analyzing and just be. Learning to open ones awareness takes time, patience and a whole lot of faith. It also helps to have a bit of guidance. Sometimes just having a skilled Medium in the area will help you see the things you have overlooked. The world is a magical place folks, go explore…explore your back yard, the inner workings of your mind and the world around you, you never know who or what you may find. I hope you enjoyed the read folks.
