Discover And Learn How To Celebrate And Rekindle Your Celtic Heritage In The Simplest Ways EVERYDAY
As Irish and Celtic people, we come from a bloodline of generations that practice and showcase our roots and heritage through the experience and stories shared by our ancestors. These stories, symbolisms, and values that were passed on as we grew older are kept sacred and passed down to generations after us. It’s a never ending cycle that keeps us grounded and connected in which we are never afraid nor ashamed to take pride in.
With that being said, we are living in a society that is growing and changing at a rate that we have never expected. People are prone to adapting to what is thrown at them and at some point forgetting the roots that have molded and made them the individuals they are today.
The beauty of Celtic and Irish practices is that even if it has been passed on through generations, the teachings, values, and symbolisms have adapted to our current society as well. If you haven’t noticed, one of the main reasons why we are still connected to our Celtic and Irish heritage is through the symbolisms that are present in the jewelry, language, historical monuments, and in the individuals that are proud to proclaim their heritage.
Which brings us to our main concern, how can you celebrate, practice, convey, and showcase your Irish roots and heritage in everyday life? The answer is quite simple, and we can walk you through it.
Wear Celtic Jewelry or Clothing
It seems materialistic, but hear us out. We aren’t saying that you should dress up like your ancestors as you walk through everyday life, no, that’s taking it out of context. Again, with what we are experiencing in our current society, there are jewelry and forms of clothing that keep us connected and rooted to our heritage.
Quick examples are jewelry that are handcrafted and designed to showcase the symbols and values that were practiced generations ago. These symbols never grow old and over time have been molded to become pieces of jewelry that stand out within the current trend. There are statement shirts, top hats, jackets, that have designs with the same concept or are designed with historical monuments and ancient Celtic folklore.
Truth is, there have been so many pieces of clothing and jewelry that showcase your Irish roots and heritage waiting for you to wear them.
Master Your Language
One of the best ways to stay connected to your roots wherein you wouldn’t be spending a dime would be to master your language. There are novels and stories written in the Celtic language that would mean more and feel different if you understand the depth and beauty of these written pieces. It is evident that there are instances wherein the message of a certain story or piece loses it’s essence when translated.
Master your language and stay CONNECTED.
Learn About Your Roots
Another aspect of rekindling and further embracing your Celtic heritage would be learning about your family roots. This can go on for decades, but learning about the past life of your ancestors, the history of what they have gone through over the years and how it boils down to your current era is truly magical.
Travel To Your Place Of Origin
Going to your hometown, or the hometown of your great, great, great, great, great, we can go on, but your ancestral origin will surely make you realize so much and keep you connected to your roots. These places that they have lived in, or the places that have become monumental historical landscapes can take you back in time and further let you feel the presence of your ancestors and how they came to be.
Overall, staying connected to your roots daily is not a matter of faith or belief, it’s a choice. If you choose to showcase and stay connected to your roots, there will always be a way to do so. These practices and examples are only some of the ways that you can do so, but ultimately, the decision is all yours. Take pride in your Celtic and Irish heritage, stay connected, and further share your heritage with the people that you encounter everyday.
