Seals basking on the rocks, Rathlin Island. . Seals (rónta in Irish) are very common in Irish folklore among seacoast communities. . According to Linda May Ballard in her article ''Seal Stories and Beliefs on Rathlin Island'' seals are generally a good omen (as long as you don't kill them). . . Here are some of those popular beliefs: Seeing seals basking on rocks is the sign of a good and calm weather (it was true at least for me this day !): They have the same origin as fairies in Irish folklore (not the type of fairies you would be expecting if you are thinking about Tinkerbell). . Thus, they are associated with the fairy world and the world of the dead. . Fishermen often believed that the soul of their ancestors could be back into life in the body of a seal and even if, at one time, they were hunted and killed in Ireland for their meat, skin and oil, some families couldn't have killed, ate nor do anything harmful to them because they were supposed to be descendants from seals or from the union between a seal-woman (also known as selkie in Scotland) and a human. . . Among those families closely related to seals you could find family names such as Coneelys or Lees in Ireland and MacCodrums for Scotland. . . . #rathlinisland #reachlainn #eire #ireland #irlande #iwerzhon #animals #animal #nature #béaloideas #folklore #irishfolklore #celticheritage #rón #rónta #seal #seaside #shore #sea #mer #mor #farraige #phoque #seaweed #algues #feamainn #rock #sunnyday #northernireland

A goddess is a woman who has achieved the impossible. She has tamed the wild beasts that have lived inside of her- keeping her demons close by her side. She will never forget the difficult journey she has been on. She wears her battle scars like a trophy. Weaving each one onto her spiderweb shawl. So as she swirls it around her, she remembers she is a divine paradox. Her darkness is full of light. Her light embraces the darkness. She is an alchemist, who knows what she needs to do. As she dances in the moonlight, she knows her destiny awaits.🕷🕸🥀 #goddessbless #moonchild #themagickiswithinyou #wildwomansisterhood #goddessrising #grandmotherspider #earthwitch #welshwitch #witchesofinstagram #solitary #eclectic #herbalmagick #celticheritage #indigochildren #starchild #lightworker #universalconsciousness

My wonderful mother and stepfather are helping me move. My mother is always excellent at recommending where to put signs and pictures. I realized she had hung up already the first official wall decoration- the beautiful #eringobragh sign I bought on #etsy from @gormancrafts . She put it right by the front door. I couldn’t think of a more fitting sign to go up first in my new home. Thank you Mom and please check out #gormancrafts ’ shop here and on Etsy. #ireland #irish #irishuntileternity #irishuntiltheend #eringobragh #gaeilge #gaelic #celtic #celt #celticheritage #irishheritage #ulsterheritage #irishamerican #homedecor #woodwork #celticgirl #supportlocalartisans #irelandforever

My beautiful tattoo by Brian @mechanicalconceptttattoo He took a rough idea and turned it into art. I just had my last session this past Thursday to be sure it would be healed enough for my @spartanrace in Big Bear on the 19th. The tattoo is an homage to my Celtic and Norse heritage which I am proud of, especially as both cultures have a strong history of warrior women. #tattoo #tattooedbeauty #ravens #huginandmunin #scandanavianheritage #celticheritage #addictedtotattoos

Real talk time! Summer is coming! And with it come more outside time and hot, hot days! As moms we are super quick to make sure the kids have sunscreen but let’s take care of ourselves too! Remember your sun hat, double polarized sunglasses and sunscreen for you too!! Also remember, your skin is your LARGEST organ! It matters what you put on it! Make sure the ingredients in your sunscreen are safe!! There are already lots of articles floating around about the dangers of the chemicals in many sunscreens! This stuff matters! Do your research and get a brand that you trust! And if you are unsure what to get, Young Living has a fabulous one that this fair skinned, Celtic heritage girl loves! Happy summer, y’all!

I’ve been quiet on here lately, but we are just immersed in our Celtic unit study, which because part of our family heritage is Celtic it’s even more interesting & magical.

Les feux de Beltaine 2019 🔥 Je n’ai pas eu le cœur de fêter les fêtes du début d’année car l’hiver a apporté avec lui beaucoup de de malheurs, de maladies et surtout emporté des proches... 🌺. Mais j’ai eu le plaisir de participer aux célébrations de Beltaine où notre Reine de Mai à chasser le roi de l’hiver. En espérant que le reste de l’année soit meilleur grâce au retour de l’été et donc de la lumière ☀️ • • • #lesfeuxdebeltaine #feuxdebeltaine #feuxdebeltane #lesfeuxdebeltane #pagan #pagans #pagansofinstagram #belledemai #reinedemai #roidelhiver #kingofwinter #queenofmay #spring #flowers #beautyofmay #floweredtree #floweringtree #flowerydress #flowerscrown #redhair #gingerhair #celticheritage #patrimoine #greenwitch #magicalplaces #beltanecelebration #beltane #beltaine #fetedebeltaine
I’m actually LIKING my hair. I’m almost able to say I love it. Almost. ⭐️ No shade to my mama, I just had to get past the soundtrack in my head that sounds like her, circa 1984. ⭐️ And I had to get serious about listening to what MY hair needs and not what straight-haired cosmetologists THINK my hair needs. ⭐️ Thanks to everyone who chimed in about products and strategies. ⭐️ #naturalhair #naturalhairjourney #curls #waves #curlyandwavy #celticroots #celticheritage #floweroflife Earrings by @biomorphics
SOUND ON!!!! If you truly want to witness the magic of this talented @celticwomanofficial and their team. So since I was a teen I was in love with the Irish culture. I truly felt a connection to it. My mom took me to go see a river dance group when I was in high school and was in awe of them. When i was a junior I was so close to taking a missions trip there but it fell through. Ever since then it has been my number 1 place to visit. And who knew the man I married should be 47% Irish lol and is just as nuts as I am to visit. Hold on it gets weirder, a few years ago maybe like 7 or so my friend Diane (which p.s if your in new Mexico and looking for a massage she is the one @angellightshealingllc ) she held a reading at her house and the lady told me with no information from me what so ever that my husband and I both were married and lived in Ireland and were river dancers. WTF 🤯. So We will make that dream come true one day bc it’s meant to be. #celticwomen en #celticheritage #celticlove #ireland #love #adventure #dreamcometrue ❤️ #checkthisout #celticwomenconcert
Monastery and round tower (probably built around the 11th century AD) of Saint Caoimhín (Kevin) of Glendalough, Wicklow . . . . . . ''Celtic'' churches have the particularity to very often have their entrance orientated towards the east and the altar at the opposite direction, the west. . Therefore, they were built regarding how the sun was rising and setting. It is believed that this was done on purpose and might have something to do with pre-Christian beliefs (hence pagan roots) according to which, Celts believed in solar god(s)/goddess(es). . . #eire #ireland #irlande #iwerzhon #church #celticchurch #history #celticheritage #roundtower #patrimony #patrimoine #stones #cemetery #monastery #nature #glendalough #onmyown

¡Buen Beltane! 🔥🔥🔥 Beltane o Bealtaine (/ˈbɛl.teɪn/ en español: Buenfuego) es día festivo celebrado el 1 de mayo en el hemisferio norte y el 31 de octubre en el hemisferio sur. Históricamente esta festividad se celebraba en Irlanda, Escocia, Galicia y en la Isla de Man. Para los celtas, la noche de Beltane marcaba el comienzo de la temporada de veranopastoral, cuando las manadas de ganado se llevaban hacia los pastos verdes y a las tierras de pasto de las montañas. En Galicia, se celebraba con una recogida nocturna en los campos de cultivo con antorchas llamadas fachucos, cuyas cenizas se esparcían por la tierra; hoy en día en Galicia se le sigue rindiendo culto a la diosa gaélica Beltane y, a pesar de que en épocas pasadas esta festividad estaba siendo apartada, ahora tiene muchos más adeptos debido al romanticismo y reconstruccionismo que comparte con las otras regiones celtas como Irlanda o Bretaña.

Первомай, первомай - яблоня, зацветай! Ирландские кельты праздновали сегодня Белтайн, который предварял начало тёплого времени года и главный атрибут которого - огромные костры. Забавно, что небольшие костерки жгут сегодня не только потомки древних кельтов, но и любители шашлычка. #первомай #май #когдацвететяблоня #зацветает #яблоня #абрикос #праздник #выходные #нашашлыки #blossom #appletree #may #warm #beltain #celticheritage #tradition #bluesky

Welcoming the Horned God back to the Earth and for bringing spring along with him! I love to combine my Celtic and Norse heritage and past lives with my shamanism! Also, Cernunnos is one of my favorite forest spirits along with my totem, the Bear spirit! The blue butterfly is also a little thing I added to commemorate my beautiful girlfriend Courtney, who's spiritually represented as a blue butterfly! This is a clay mask sculpture I did, I'm not the best sculptor, but I've always been very proud of this one. Unfortunately, I didnt sculpt a body so he's just a face 😂. #cernunnos #thehornedgod #forestgod #celticshamanism #shamanism #spring #earth #spiritualism #celticheritage #norseheritage
Another historical masterpiece. Celtic crosses are so incredible! . . Just like in The Book of Kells, you have the representation of the four evangelists. . Each side of the cross has one evangelist. . If I am not mistaking, starting from the top and going clockwise we have: Matthew on top. On the right we have Luke portrayed as a cow or an oax. Then John at the bottom represented by an eagle Finally, Mark is symbolised by a lion. . #celticcross #celticheritage #history #histoire #eire #ireland #irlande #iwerzhon #wicklow #wicklowmountains #cimetery #stone #catholicism #past #passé #travel
🌜🌌🌻🐇🌛 May 1st - May Day is the Summer Solstice..as a young girl my Grandfather and I would hang His Hickory walking stick and string all sorts of shiney baubbles,satin ribbon,place a tiny piece of sweet cake in a wee cup for the faeries, teeny bells. Such sweet memories, Wednesday is May Day,many Blessings my Loves. ☘️🍀🇮🇪🐲🍀🌜🌌🐇🕊🌛 Beltaine is the anglicised name for the Gaelic May Day festival. Most commonly it is held on 1 May, or about halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. Historically, it was widely observed throughout Ireland, Beltane is mentioned in some of the earliest Irish literature, and it is associated with important events in Irish mythology. It marked the beginning of summer and was when cattle were driven out to the summer pastures. Rituals were performed to protect the cattle, crops and people, and to encourage growth. Special bonfires were kindled, and their flames, smoke and ashes were deemed to have protective powers. The people and their cattle would walk around or jump over the bonfire or pass between two bonfires, and sometimes leap over the flames or embers. All household fires would be doused and then re-lit from the Beltane bonfire. These gatherings would be accompanied by a feast, and some of the food and drink would be offered to the aos sí. Doors, windows, byres and the cattle themselves would be decorated with yellow May flowers, perhaps because they evoked fire. In parts of Ireland, people would make a May Bush: a thorn bush decorated with flowers, ribbons and bright shells. Holy wells were also visited, while Beltane dew was thought to bring beauty and maintain youthfulness. Many of these customs were part of May Day or Midsummer festivals in other parts of Great Britain and Europe. #beltaine #mayday #summersolstice #celticheritage #druid #druidry #celticdruid
Fun afternoon with Chicky at the Scottish festival! So much fun exploring and learning the culture. I found a beautiful Celtic ring with 2 holding hands around a heart. It reminded me of the picture of me holding my daddy's hand before he passed. A special day spent making some great memories. #ironthistle #celticheritage #livingforthemoment

In preparation for some changes come September (also because of a bit of burnout all around), I’ve turned our homeschool on it’s head by doing lessons as a group again. After using @layerslearning unit studies for Canadian history for the past month, I decided to switch over completely. We are jumping in on the end of Year 1 to finish off our focus on Ancients, and we will be starting Year 2 in July when our new school year starts. Anyone else ever do this, just completely switch things up? 🙃

My Viking + I are planning a big ancestral trip to England, Scotland, Ireland in the middle of the year. It will be the first time doing this kind of exploration for both of us + I'm so excited.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ He's going to visit York which was once a stronghold of Norse warriors + you bet I'm immersing myself in the wild feminine landscape of the Cailleach, visiting Brigid's well + so much more. ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ It will be a story fest here on IG. Get ready!⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Photo: @makiegan ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ #holiday #vacation #ancestors #ancestralhomeland #vikings #celts #celticheritage #england #scotland #ireland ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ ⁣⠀
Guess what! I found my missing Claddagh ring! Jonathan bought me this ring on our Honeymoon and it has been missing for years! I found it the other day but boy was it DIRTY!! So I cleaned it with the same single cleaner I use in the rest of my house! Thieves for the win! For reference: my wedding band was cleaned professionally a couple of weeks ago. I let my Claddagh soak and then dried it off and voila!
