Podcast episode about destiny, fate and fairies in Basque culture (40 min)
In this episode I discuss the differences between destiny and fate, explaining their intersections and their relationship with the force of Adur.
In the second part, I introduce the figure of the Weaver of Destiny as one of Mari’s aspects, speaking about the importance of the feminine ancestral lineage in our magical practices.
Then, I dedicate a section to the Lamiak or Laminak and the stories of fairy brides/followers, underlining the importance of the Double in our spiritual development. After that, I clarify the functions of the Jeinu, Patuek and Famerijaleak as relevant entities in our path.
Finally, I mention other types of fairy spirits which whom we can pact to protect our household, gain prosperity or hex someone.
