Celebrations of the Green Isle

Blessings Of The GreenA Day To Be Proud Of The Green

It’s St. Paddy’s Day here in the U.S. which is much more of a celebration of the Irish and the Green Isle than it is a day to honor a Catholic Saint. And that’s probably a good thing for Celtic Pagans. It allows us to connect with our heritage, honor the old country, the mystical ways of the past through song and celebration. Raise a glass or two of Irish Whiskey or Green Beer and in general have a good time.

But Pagan’s have good reason for not celebrating “St. Patrick’s Day” itself. I wrote about that last year, so feel free to run on over there and check out Why Pagan’s Don’t Celebrate St. Paddy’s Day.

For me today is an Irish Pride Day. A time to bring a bit of the mysticism and folklore of the old days back into thoughts and imaginations of the here and now. Who doesn’t need a little distraction from the stress and grind of the modern world?

You might discover things aren’t as dire as you think and you still have some time to fix everything! But you must take action TODAY or it will be too late.

Additional Insight:

You can’t run from your problems or the issues in your life. You must face them head on with confidence and trust that the Divine in your life is pushing you to where you NEED to be. The more you run away or fight against the tide, the harder you will make it on yourself. So stop, just stop!

You made the choices that brought you to this point in your life. Either by thinking with rose-colored glasses, and ignoring the signs that were there. Or simply by taking the option to do nothing when issues came up in the first place. You created this moment in time, ok, what’s done is done. Stop dwelling over what you should have done, could have done or might have done. None of that self negative talk or focusing on the past is going to change things or cause a magikal wand to appear so you can wish it away! Continue reading
