From Celtic folklore; the Leanan Sidhe. A type of human sized fairy, she is a muse. Creatively inclined men fall for her, want to paint her, sculpt her, or write tunes about her... And as they do, she drains them of their life, sucking out their "passion" leaving them dead. Cool. #celticfolklore #illustration #skull #drawing #art

Celtic folklore states "A Black Fox-brings bad luck". Oh, great....just what I need.

Look at this gorgeous book of Celtic Tales from Ireland, Scotland, Brittany and Wales πŸƒ

I saw this book in Waterstones recently, I like to browse the Scottish section all the time, and I couldn't resist! πŸ™Š I'm going to be reading this book next!

This Highland Mist candle from @bubbleandgeek! It smells amazing (but not much like mist haha!) 🌿 I need to thank my wonder friend @beccaketcher for sending it my way for Christmas!

She wasn't like anyone I had ever met.

She was made of all complicated things, but always had a simplicity in the way she moved.

And that is all she ever wanted, for someone to understand her
while she was out making sense of her soul and the handful of flowers blooming from her skull.

🀘🏽🀘🏽DEATH🀘🏽🀘🏽Elder Flowers on a Death tarot card? Well, all our elderberries are in bloom out at Black Diamond and we came across this card in a deck of Herbal Tarot cards and wondered what the connection was between death and elderberries because elderberries are like a medicine chest and normally associated with healing. Apparently Elderflowers have all sorts of connections to the underworld and spirit world. According to archaeological findings Elder wood was used in funerary sites in the U.K. by Celtic people and was associated with the White Goddess (also of the Celtic people) who was the guardian of the underworld. So much more on the death/life connection of elderberry that further adds to the awesomeness of this plant. We have 3 different varieties planted: Medicine Wheel, Food Forest, and Black Lace. Plant one!! #deathandrebirth #elderberry#elderflower#celticfolklore#plantmedicine #blackdiamondbackyard #urbanelderberry#blacktourmaline #greentourmaline#feedthebees #beeplants

"It was humbling to see our small village spread out before us, a couple of dozen cottages and the market place, all surrounded by countless fields. Just beyond our village we could see the road, which led off into the distance towards the town. Beyond that I could make out the start of the Fairy Hills and the Fairy Forest to the west." - Morven, The Changeling's Journey 🌿

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee #ireland #chillaf #outdoorsΒ  #rivers #forestmeditation #folklore #celticfolklore #celtic #watermeditation #glendalough #wicklowmountains #traveling
