Vikings – Ursula T
I am born a Booth (this is my maiden name), and what a strong name that is. So here is the story behind it…
I have always been fascinated by Vikings and dragons and magic and dragonflies – for as far back as I can remember. I know in my heart I am a warrior, because there is no way that I have survived all I have been through in this life time without having some kind of warrior blood in me right?
About four years ago, I went to a healer, Hettie, who did a past life regression for me, and it was said that I have been a Viking warrior who led many men on the battle field and won many battles too. I was also told that out of envy, probably another woman, murdered me in my sleep (nice hey?).
Apparently I have also been an incredibly powerful white witch, a healer, that was so misunderstood by the people in my village and so I was burned at the stake more than once (again – nice hey?).
And so my soul has done many trips of such stories and that is why in this life, I had my strokes, which is probably around the same ages as all the times before. So almost like my soul is reliving past traumas.
This completely fascinates me.
So I looked into the meaning of my maiden name, and asked my father (who I have in recent years re-connected with – which is beyond fantastic, he is amazing actually) who am I, where do I come from, what am I?
I asked if our heritage is that of Vikings and his response made me laugh so loud. He said Vikings were freer and could drink as much as they wanted. And told me I am a Booth
And so I did some research into where the name Booth comes from…..
And you guessed it, again as a result of following our gateway ancestor Catherine de Montfort the Booths are descendants of the Swedish Royal line of Vikings and further along Ukranian Royalty.
The Vikings (from Old Norse víkingr) were seafaring north Germanic people who raided, traded, explored, and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia, and the North Atlantic islands from the late 8th to the mid-11th centuries. The Vikings employed wooden longships with wide, shallow-draft hulls, allowing navigation in rough seas or in shallow river waters. The ships could be landed on beaches, and their light weight enabled them to be hauled over portages. These versatile ships allowed the Vikings to travel as far east as Constantinople and the Volga River in Russia, as far west as Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland, and as far south as Nekor. This period of Viking expansion, known as the Viking Age, constitutes an important element of the medieval history of Scandinavia, Great Britain, Ireland, Russia, and the rest of Europe.
And there we have it. I always knew I got my strength from somewhere right? Besides, you should see my mom, she is the strongest woman I have met in this life.
So in true spirit, of celebrating where I come from, in this life and ones before, and overcoming my lock-down thatch roof (hair gone wild), I decided to do Viking braids. I absolutely love it!!!
I feel amazing and now I don’t need to worry about hair (at least for a while now) I am free to be me 😉
