Beautiful Fae energy

a_shikhs

A month back, while planning a holiday for myself, I kept getting this intuition to go to Ireland (no idea why). I really wanted to go to Budapest and was on the verge of booking the tickets but something kept stopping me and I finally and haphazardly booked tickets to Dublin instead. So I did a bit of research before my trip and decided to spend a couple of nights in Dublin and two nights in this small hilly village of Glendalough, which is a small remote village in the Wicklow mountains of Ireland. (now that I think of it, I really have no idea why I chose this small village and it just happened)

After spending three nights in Dublin, quite a few people told me not to go to Glendalough, especially if I will be relying on public transport and won't have a car as there is nothing much to do there and a day trip to the village would be just fine. But something in my head kept nagging me to go and stay in the village and after a lot of thought, I decided to go ahead with the plan and leave it to the Universe. :D

So, my two nights in Glendalough village were simply magical. There was such strong faery energy there. I could just feel it all around me. I was staying in a beautiful bed & breakfast which was in the mountains and I had to cross a tiny river to go to the village. On one of my walks in the village, I came across this huge bark of a tree which was cut in between and you could see through to the other end. And I had this super strong intuition that this was one of the gateways to the faery world. I did try looking through the end end but didn't see anything, but I just knew that this was a strong portal.

I spent my evenings meditating in the mountains and on the last day of my trip, I felt this strong positive energy as if something within me had been transformed and changed. I feel so fresh and different somehow, can't explain the feeling. :p I then asked the faeries for a sign that I wasn't imagining all of this and if it were true.

On my way back home, I was reading this faery book on my kindle and there it was mentioned that Glendalough was one of the faery sites that is surrounded by strong faery energy. What an absolute and amazing coincidence. One of the most beautiful and magical trips I've ever had and what a perfect sign of faery presence. :D :love:

That sounds amazing! What beautiful photos too. It's really inspiring how following your intuition led to this profound experience. Do you think you'll ever return there for another visit?

I LOVED Glendalough - also the monastic settlement and the rest....

I think I need to go again now.

oh a_shikhs how lovely! Its also nice that you payed attention to your intuition and not what others advised! good for you, and see the rewards you gained! The pictures are lovely, the 2nd one just looks so heavenly. One day I'd love to go to Ireland, as my grandfather immigrated from there and the great majority of my other ancestors are from Ireland as well. I feel the calling and hope to do the trip within the next few years. I'll have to keep Glendalough in my mind and then go to the 'home lands' of Cork afterwards. thanks for sharing!

How beautiful! I love Ireland, but have never been to that village. (The nearest was Carlow, I think? I'm more familiar with Kerry & Cork.)
May I ask if you went alone? I used to spend summers in Ireland with family, now passed on, & haven't been for years. But since reading two or three books of faery folklore, & now your lovely post, I'm inspired to go back, on my own. Did you spend most of your time alone, to feel & experience that faery energy, I wonder?

Thank you all. :)

Thank you Est. :heart: I would love to go back and really want to take my parents there. Hopefully next year with the family. :)

Gregory, I loved the monastic ruins. So powerful and ancient. While meditating there, I had an interesting vision. I saw an old monk in one of the ruined stoned prayer rooms praying and chanting. And I felt him telling me that the monks were very attuned to the fae energy around them. It's a very powerful site. We should have an AT meet up there sometime. :laugh:

It was a beautiful place and so peaceful, untouched and natural beauty all around. I hardly saw any people there. :D Wow, you have Irish ancestors. :D I found the Irish very friendly and welcoming. Yes, you should plan a trip to the village when you visit Ireland. It's only an hour's bus drive from Dublin and very easy to get to. :)

I've heard that Kerry is beautiful but didn't get a chance to visit it this time. Hopefully next time. :) Yes, I went there alone. It's a bit funny as once there was a time when I would never even think of travelling alone and now since this year has started, I've already made three trips all by myself and have learned so much. I'm addicted to travelling alone now. :D In Glendalough, I spent a lot of time meditating, thinking, walking and connecting to the wild energy around me, as it's a small village and there's nothing much to do there but enjoy the scenic beauty around. It's simply amazing how you start to enjoy your own company once you get the hang of it. 2012 has definitely been a very spiritual and an awakening year for me. :)
