Scottish Witch Trials: When Witches Communed with Fairies

17 thoughts on “Scottish Witch Trials: When Witches Communed with Fairies”

  1. My great grandmother is from Scotland. And I’ve met Brigid, Danu, and been to a Sidhe in a dream. I asked before I fell asleep to see the Fae, who are my ancestors. Brigid invited me to become a powerful witch after seven years of training in the Sidhe. I declined for love. I was a Bride. The weird thing is I didn’t know anything about them until I researched to find out what I experienced in my dream. It was remarkable!

    1. Wow! I feel drawn to spiritual community also but have never had such dreams. I saw a swamp fairy which ignited my research and writing ability. I always hear that one you have such an experience you believe. I consider myself a Pagan Buddhist. I try to be as open minded as possible not bogged down by any particular dogma, instead embracing all. I believe that is the path to learn more. Your dreams are unusual and would make a fabulous book or novel! <3

    1. Thank you, Granny Moon for sharing this fabulous article. I am always shocked at how “man” has distorted the truth from history. Just think what a better world we could have had by following the pagan ways. <3

      1. Yes, and then future generations grow up with the “new” version and don’t necessarily even know that it wasn’t always that way. Thank goodness for writers and reading. 🙂

  3. It’s unsettling how history can connote changes, to such a degree, at times, that what once existed becomes unrecognizable. Makes me wonder what people will have come to believe about the present a hundred years (or more) from now. Will our Commander ‘n Thief be thought a hero? The commercialization of the witch image has helped contort paganism into something heinous. But the energy is coming full circle, and truth will demand its day …

    Sending you lots of healing energy during this sad time for you, Sister ❤❤❤

    1. Thank you, Sister. Yesterday was tough. I agree with your assessment. I took some great classes in college about religion. Many of the world’s leading religions have been distorted from their original teachings. I find it comforting that more people are turning to nature and finding their roots by reverting back to the original teachings. It is clear in our political arena in America today, religion has been distorted again. Yet, people are finding new ways to embrace a spiritual path that resembles that of the old ways. That feels like positive change. What goes around, comes around. <3
