Marigold , people for what ever reason seem to think the Celtic people are from the United Kingdoms ( United , very funny ) and don't look beyond that area. Get a good book on the origins of the Celts . You will find that they came from far away , yes one could say the their final place to colonize was their most important to the world .

Off subject , love red heads  :-p

Sorry for writing a book!

What Canis has said is much like what happened to me. I was always the outsider in the Christianity faith. Nothing about this faith made me feel like I belonged. I remember one Sunday at a church meeting. We were supposed to bare our testimony, (this was in front of a bunch of women of the LDS faith). I stood up and told them I had received a visit from Jesus. I told them what He looked like. Then I told them what He had said, "All may speak with ME at anytime. If they but have faith." They only needed to believe strong enough and He would be with them. I then told the women He was in the room with us and where He was.

They all looked at me like I was crazy. As soon as the meeting was over, they left the room like their pants were on fire. They would not speak to me after that. As I left the room, one woman said to me, "You are speaking to the devil! You needed the have the evil spirits cast out of you." She said. "only the men of the priesthood could talk to God. You are preaching blasphemy." I asked her why it was that only the men in this religion could speak to God? She said, "I needed to read my Book of Mormon and repent. There, I would learn that only the priesthood has the power to speak to God." I stopped believing in this faith right then.

It seems like not more then two months later, I was talking to a lady, not of the LDS faith. Telling her what her father wanted her to know, (Father had passed over.) She asked me if I was psychic? I told her I had been able to talk to people who had crossed over all my life, to a certain extent. That is when I realized I wanted to know how develop them my abilities more. The books just started to appear around me. I began reading, not just about mediums and psychic's, but also about wicca and the craft. It intrigued me to say the least. So, I read even more, mainly SC and RB books. Yes, I have read a lot but not really practiced what I had read. Then about 10 years ago, I decided I would never know if I didn't try this and see if it worked for me. I began using wicca off and on throughout those years. About two years ago, I found this forum and things have become much more clear to me. I'm sure I have the same feeling as most of the people on here who decided to live the Craft. To me, it just felt right. I still have a long way to go, but I am happy for the first time in many many years. I AM HOME!

Blessed Be! MW

Because I was open enough in my mind to believe in something more than what others told me was the truth and my Mother told me too always follow what I think was true to myself .

Was it a straight path here, after you decided to pursue the Craft?  Sometimes I think the gods put up roadblocks to test our commitment and our mettle.

I was troubled, in pain, and cried out...and silence was my answer. Tired of being ignored by a god who supposedly cares that much about his followers, that supposedly seeks only to be with his followers, i decided to cry out until someone answered...and i received multiple answers.

Speaking for myself, I don't feel I was brought here in the sense that I was chosen by the gods. I do feel that I was lead here...not in the way that I'm special or that the gods chose me for a special purpose. But more in the sense that the gods knew of my dissatisfaction with Christianity and sent signs informing me of a path that may be more suited to me.

Do you feel you were brought to the Craft by the gods?  If so, why do you think they chose you? Not necessarily an ego trip btw, if you think you were chosen. The gods have their own agenda.

But some people do find the notion of "specialness," or of anyone being singled out by the gods, elitist and downright offensive. If that's your POV, feel free to elaborate.

What are your thoughts?

Do you think "Summerland" could be a description of a state of being?

As opposed to a physical place or plain? Interesting concept.

Since our souls are not tangible (as we understand it) entities, perhaps then the "Summerland" paradigm could simply be perceived individually because it is the easiest way for us to get our heads around it.

Is this what you mean FS?

Not exactly... from my own perspective, as a Christian, I see Heaven as the state of being one with G-d; I see Hell as the state of being completely isolated from G-d(which I feel is literally impossible).  Could Summerland be described the same way?
