Ah, today! It’s Sheela Na Gig Day! Yes, a day that celebrates the Celtic icon/goddess, Sheela, statues of which can be found all over the UK, but mostly in Ireland.
There are various legends and stories surrounding the Sheela and what she represents, but one thing that intrigues me is the one about pregnant women. It is said that if a woman in labor focuses on a picture of a Sheela Na Gig her labor pains ease! Talk about the mind-body Connection!
To celebrate, I shared a few posts from others on Facebook and created a Pinterest page of the various images shared there.
Here’s a link to one article I shared on Facebook.
How do you celebrate this iconic legend of the Sheela Na Gig?
