(from my Uncles website, he is an artist, it states about our Norse and Highland heritage)

I sometimes wondered where I got my “gifts” from and why I am now drawn to Paganism and Wicca

the answers lie in my heritage

I knew that I had Irish and Scottish blood but it was not until my Uncle did the family tree that I found out I also have

Norwegian blood, some of the first Pagans were “Norse”

Dictionary entry overview: What does Norse mean?

• NORSE (noun)
The noun NORSE has 3 senses:

1. an inhabitant of Scandinavia
2. a native or inhabitant of Norway
3. the northern family of Germanic languages that are spoken in Scandinavia and Iceland

the Norse spread to the Highlands of Scotland, which is where my Grandad was from ” The Isle of Lewis” , you cannot get much more “Highland” than that and people from that area are known as Celtic

so Paganism in UK started in the Highlands and then spread to the rest of the country,

I felt drawn to Runes not knowing I had Norse blood : runes are a Norse method of divination using stones or bits of wood with the Ogham alphabet on them,

I am drawn to certain other divination methods that are Celtic, I love Celtic art work.

I do Celtic moon astrology

I am drawn to nature and trees, Paganism is mainly using respect for nature and Mother Earth, trees are very important

Paganism leads to Wicca, which is Witchcraft and something that I now also follow

so it seems that all this is in my blood.

My son who is also interested in Paganism and is a fantastic psychic and paranormal investigator has Irish Traveller (Gypsy) blood so he got that from his Fathers heritage

talking of Norse , we have a Norweigan forest cat, we did not know he was that breed until he was about 6 years old

I said to my husband that if I ever get my black cat that I want I shall call her Morrigan

well you could knock me over with a feather when I did a quiz in a magazine and my results were that I was most like the Goddess Morrigan who was Celtic, this is what the quiz said :

(so much of this describes me to a T )

A strong and vibrant goddess with an almost magical air about her

naturally intuitive and incredibly psychic she controlled her own destiny

because you match with Morrigan you are fully aware of what you want and possess a magical bewitching air about you

it fascinates those around you, you are extremely protective of the people in your life.(as my son can tell you ! )

highly sensitive and very intuitive, you are very imaginative and deeply fascinated by the moon, much like your sorceress alter ego (yes I am)

the magazine recommended that I try these things :

maintain connection with nature and in particular the moon ( I do, I run my life round the moon phases and often go on nature

walks to the woods when I am well enough)

Carry a moonstone in your pocket or handbag ( spooky..I have been doing that for the past year )
