In Sligo, Ireland May 2018 I found myself literally climbing into my dream. In 1986 I dreamed that I climbed a lush, green mountain with rabbits jumping and butterflies fluttering all over the scenery. It was a female mountain. Jumping around in the blueberry bushes and heather, I realised that I should leave the man I was living with at the time who loved the ice-cold, hard Alpes and had no place for the feminine energies. And so I did.
Now I found myself standing in the middle of my dreamscape from 1986. Rabbits jumping, butterflies and bumble bees fluttering around and the ground covered in heather and blueberry bushes. This time together with my partner Zeto, a warm, loving and spiritual musician who I met at Tara Hill in Ireland. He impersonates much of that which I missed in my previous relationships. The feminine qualities are also strong in him, as the masculine.
We started to jump around in the bushes and we found more amazing signs through the scenery during our walk to the cairn at the top. He had painted a painting one year before with the exact scenery that we met when walking up the last part to the cairn, with him and me sitting in a stone circle overlooking the sea and mountains behind Maeve’s Mountain. He sent it to me same night we met at Tara. He shouted: ”I see the stone circle!” and ran off in the heather. Sitting there together, we made a beautiful ceremony, recognising each other from many lives.
Queen Maeve who gave name to the mountain at Knocknarea in Sligo, was a strong celtic queen from old. I feel the kinship to her strongly. Integrated feminine and masculine energy.
