Daily Draw: The Shaman's Oracle, Ancestor of Guidance.
Echoes of ancient paths. Having Irish ancestry on both sides it is quite hard to trace old family history. Anyway earlier generations might not want me prying into their lives...
There are at least two generations of teachers before me and some members of the family have been pleased to offer this service without pay or position. In so doing they have enriched other lives.
Granny was a great dressmaker and I wouldn't be surprised to find a draper, tailor or milliner going further back. Love of fashion is in our bones. I refuse to accept it is trivial. Dressing well is self-respect and shows respect for others.
At least three grandparents grew up on the coast and travelled for employment. I am proud of the Irish work ethic.
According to the guidebook the Ancestor of Guidance says 'because I am of your family...I know well the deepest places of your heart and soul, and stand ready to assist you in discovering the path you need to follow'
These are the threads that loop through my life. Pursuit of knowledge, hard work, history, the coast, Irishness and always a good coat, bag and shoes.
The spiritual path which is the ancestor's main concern will unfold in and amongst that.
