The spiritual and unseen fascinates me. To this skeptic it kind of goes like this: Imagine the possibilities. Believe in the possibilities enough to seek answers. Discover through experiential learning how many unbelievable possibilities are in fact real. Accept the new reality. Reset. Repeat.
This journey is just beginning and I'm excited about researching, writing, learning, evolving and connecting.
Sound fun to you too? PERFECT. Let's Go!
“My heart’s in the highlands.” -Robert Burns
Do you love Scotland, fairies and the idea of thin places? Does intuition and the second sight interest you? Have you heard the whispers of your ancestors? If yes, great! Grab yourself a cup of tea and let’s explore!
We, the Scottish Diaspora, are worldwide and most of us know a deep longing for Scotland. We celebrate our heritage with highland games, bagpipes, Gaelic language, Burns Suppers and more. We wear kilts and clan badges. We know our clan names, tartan and history. We proudly proclaim our Scottish heritage, and for us, a part of our heart will always be at *home* in Scotland. Many people who are born in Scotland do not understand the gravitational pull, but we do. We feel it deep in our hearts and we know we are home. Wherever you’re from, I’d love for you to join in the journey. Let’s Imagine. Believe. Discover!
Everything to do with Scotland: books, language, music, culture, history, castles, battles, food, holidays, traditions, beliefs, artists, bagpiping, the clan system in ancient and modern times, the role of Gaelic in ancient and modern times, YouTube channels, podcasts, television shows, poetry etc.
