Are they friendly spirits?

Communicating with and within other dimensions and realms of reality is something I take very seriously. When I open the gates for connecting, perhaps in a sweat lodge or during a ceremony at one of Ireland’s megalithic sacred sites, I’m aware that it can be challenging to navigate the language of Spirit. It’s a fluency that can take some time and experience. It can be a challenge to know whether the messages are real. Or just a story.
In our longing for spiritual communion it’s so tempting to create those stories. We see a feather in our path, an eagle flying overhead, a unique cloud formation. Is it a message? Or is it just a feather, just a cloud? Hard to know. Well, there are ways to know, but as I mentioned it comes through the experience of spiritual connections.
We were standing at a holy well within the monastic ruins of Aghagower, paying tribute to the Sheela-Na-Gig mounted in the wall. I had wandered around the other side of the wall when I saw this lichen formation. I had to chuckle. Had we been in ceremony it might have been tempting for someone to create a story from it. There are times when Spirit is speaking. This wasn’t one of them.
