Welcome to my web site! This is a little collection of all of my “woo-woo” things.
By Christian definitions, I would not be considered one. But, I grew up and was raised that way, so I have a background in that religion and its practices. Over the years, I’ve done a lot of reading and discussing of a more general spirituality, and I feel that I would more accurately call myself an eclectic Pagan these days.
I feel a deep connection to the earth, and that greatly affects me when I finally make time to do things like hiking or even just sitting outside in the grass.
I love studying the moon and watching the phases it passes through. I’m one of those people who feels a lot of energy at the full moon and gets very contemplative at the new.
Over time, I’ve noticed that (for me) my physical health, my mental health, my spirituality, my overall well-being, and my feeling of having a place in this world are all intertwined. For instance, if I remember to drink enough water, not only am I doing something good for myself, but my mood drastically changes for the better. This is a really small and simple example, but I hope that helps give a short intro to what I’m talking about when I say everything is connected.
By definition, féileacán is Irish for “butterfly.” I’ve always thought that the idea of a caterpillar going through its metamorphosis to become a butterfly was a beautiful metaphor for our journey through life, to become our truest selves.
In 2007, I made my first trip to Ireland, and it profoundly changed my life. Ever since, I have felt a connection to my experiences there and have had a fascination with all things Irish. With that being said, féileacán was a beautiful word I found and wanted to use to name my web site.
About this Site
I’m only now finally getting my thoughts organized into something cohesive, and while that means I’m starting to organize my site, it also means it’s not where I want it to be, at least not yet. So, I hope you’ll come back often and see what’s new here. I also hope you’ll say ‘hi’ or send an email to let me know what you think or just to say how things are going.
Thanks so much for reading, and Blessed Be!
