Sheelaigh comes from the islands off the west coast of Scotland. She is a protector of animals from the red deer of the mountain hillsides, the ravens and buzzards of the sky to the foxes and mice of the earth. She is also a midwife, a midwife of souls. When it is time for these souls to pass onto the otherworld she is there beside them gently singing their song and guiding them on their journey to the otherworld.
Sheelaigh, like all my other dolls are symbols of the divine feminine, of the great mother goddess.
She can sit on an altar or a special corner in your home and inspire you in magical workings, in your own connection to the great mother. She is particularly useful as a focus in prayers and intentions for those that are sick, or for those that have died and begun their journey to the otherworld.
