So after my Imbolc experience with Brigid I of course wanted to find out more about this ancestor that she had shown me. Doing more trance work I found out the following information.
The figure she had shown me I assumed was male. Mostly because of the clothing. But upon my visit to that vision I discovered he was a she! Her name is Anna. She worked her family farm because he three brothers all had farms of their own. She had two other sisters both of whom were married off. She was the eldest of her family. And big boned. That’s the other reason I thought she was a he. From a distance she resembled any man working the earth.
She lived in the late 1400s. As far back as we can factually check my families is the late 1500s. So no real way to fact check. But as the sole worker of her family farm she knew nature well. She lived a very simple life. She was in tune with the cycles of the year. She measured time by the earth cycles. In many ways she lived as a Druid.
She was friendly but busy. She told me my interest in herbology was mostly due to her influences. I also got the sense that she was my direct ancestor linkage to Druidry. She was my main tug at my following this path.
I plan to do more trance sessions to get to know her. I have many questions to ask her. I’m sure she has much wisdom to share. Wisdom about living a life closer to the earth. Wisdom about the changes of seasons. I will find out what I can from her. A new valuable resource. May our relationship bloom like her farm.
