I am a spirit-guided ritualist by vocation and by inheritance. Currently I spend my days leaning into the stories and the wisdom of my ancestors who lived in Europe and the British, Irish and Scottish Isles. I am also a descendant of settler/colonial/immigrant ancestry to North America.
I help folks who are searching for belonging with their people to develop relationships with spirit kin who are residing in the ancestral realms. It is a ceremony to invoke healing and restoration, a pathway to embodying blessing and ancestral gifts, to understanding on a visceral level who we come from and the lands to which their hearts were promised.
Every session I help to facilitate begins with a prayer to invoke the land spirits, the wise ancestral elders and the other benevolent powers of presence that guide and hold the vessel for the ceremony. I found a way to further honor my ancestors by humbly invoking them in Gàidhlig.
The healing and wisdom I have encountered with my people has helped to corroborate my ways of knowing and instincts about the ways of being and beliefs that were held in reverence by my ancestors:
- Honoring the forebears in story and song
- Invoking lineage
- Bardic traditions of praising the landscapes
- The deeper knowing of one’s self and community through belonging to place
- Lived experience of and honoring of beings in the Otherworld
- All while practicing the folk medicine and magic
I also hold these as values in our current modern times.
