In honor of Friendship, Love and Loyalty

There’s a little town in Ireland called Claddagh. It sits right on the meeting point where the Galway River and the Corrib River cross paths. Previously a fishing village, Claddagh is now more famous for a piece of jewelry that was named after it. The piece of jewelry in question is called a Claddagh Ring and was created in the seventeenth century. Formed as part of a group of finger rings known as ‘fede’ rings, the Claddagh ring represents three parts of the faith system. The ring is a pair of clasping hands—which represent friendship—and they are wrapping around a heart, which represents love. Atop of the heart is a crown which represents loyalty. The ‘fede’ rings come from the Italian ‘Mani in fede’ which means ‘hands in faith’ and is symbolic in pledging vows and other promises. That same motif was used in eighteenth century England, also, but the whole Claddagh theme became part of Irish culture into the late twentieth century and the whole Claddagh motif adorned pub signs, stores and other places of interest.

The Truth behind Prophecy Readings

Prophecy is a very intriguing concept. It comes in many forms, and it has been around for thousands of years. In the Greek age, the Greeks consulted the Oracle of Delphi. This was done by inhaling numerous vapors to try and connect themselves with the higher being. Others choose to use tarot cards, study tea leaves and palm read to try and foresee future events.
