‘Beannacht’ ~ a New Year Blessing by EILEEN HENEGHAN

Beannacht is the Irish word for blessing. As 2020 ends, and we prepare to begin 2021, we extend a heartfelt and beautiful Beannacht from Tipperary-based healer and writer, Eileen Heneghan. Here at Trasna, we wish everyone health and happiness in the new year.


Sliabh na mBan, Co. Tipperary



Wishing you deep peace as we stand on the shoreline of a new year and new beginning

May the times ahead be lived from an open and loving heart

May the lessons of the past year that broke us open, bring now the gift of compassion, and kindle the courage to continue on

May we gently let go our loved ones who have passed, knowing they live forever in our hearts, shaped us into who we have become

May we find inspiration to start again

May we value the gift of family and friendship

May we recognise the beauty and grace within and around us

May we come to know real peace arises from within

May we strive to bring all our gifts to form

May our dormant dreams and potential find a way to manifest for the good of all

May we weave our living in accordance with the seasons and cycles of the moon sun and stars

May the ancestors bless us and may we remember them and bow to their journey

May the Angelic bless us , and The Fairy People.

May The Divine Plan unfold through every breath and step.
