Welcome to Tursan Tuesdays, where I take you on a journey through the Celtic world.
“…the Otherworld is a beautiful and happy land of feasting, hunting, and lovemaking, similar to this world, but perfect…It is beautiful, but with a hint of danger, since its delights may lure mortals away from friends, family and responsibilities.”
~ Decoding The Celts
There are countless tales of the Celtic Otherworld, many of its legends have even been adapted in stories from other religions and traditions.
The Otherworld is the realm of the faeries, the gods and goddesses, and the place where the soul travels to rest its weary tuckus after yet another reckless and wild ride (hopefully!) on this side of the mist.
Some say you can find the Otherworld in one of the myriad Sídhe mounds located around the world. Some say the Otherworld is a realm that exists alongside our own and can only be reached by either dying (an extreme approach), or by kidnapping invitation by the fae. Still others believe the Otherworld can be found beneath the ocean.
To my mind, where ever it is, the Otherworld is a place of savage beauty, endless magic and timeless dreams.
So talk to me. What do you know of the Otherworld? Have you read stories of it? What would be the first thing you did once you got there? 🙂
