Even two years ago I would not have believed that I would stand up and say I am a Druid. So why am I a Druid? I love nature, trees, the living world. I love walking especially in woodlands and forests. The core of Druid belief is the sacredness of all life on earth. I also have a Celtic ancestry. The Bardic Course I am studying is teaching me about the legends, lore and history of the Celts. It is also tapping into my creativity and encouraging me to write and create. The steps I have taken towards Druidry feel right. I have learnt that being a Druid did not exclude my Christian and Buddhist background, nor Reiki which is central to my life. The strands are weaving together to create a more open spiritual path. But how did the call towards Druidry start?
I heard its call long ago whilst I was being attuned as a Reiki teacher within the circle at Stonehenge by William Rand. During the attunement my soul travelled deep into the caverns under Stonehenge and I was lost at first then I began clambered up a steep treacherous path towards the light. I came out into a meadow, it was early morning. I could smell new mown hay, and a rain shower had left droplets on the grass which sparkled in the sunlight. I sat in the meadow and felt a deep sense of Peace. Then I was back in the circle at Stonehenge on a tranquil June evening. Years later as I took my initiation into Druidry my soul retraced my steps through the journey made at Stonehenge but this time I understood the symbolism and meaning of the experience. I knew I was coming home.
This blog is another beginning, I want to write about the natural world, . I want to write about stargazing, bird song......bugs and insects. I want to record the blessings and frustrations I experience. during my spiritual journey. To note the puzzles and questions that keep me wondering and wanting to know more. I love rambling.........
With Reiki blessings to you all.
