A FEW WORDS AND MYTHS ABOUT AURORA BOREALIS AND LAPLAND!

A few words about Aurora Borealis or else the "Tricky Lady" as the locals call it and the mythical Lapland!


An aurora is a natural light display in the sky,especially in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions.

Aurora Borealis is named after Aurora,the goddess of dawn according to Roman mythology, who was renewing herself every morning to fly across the sky, announcing the arrival of the sun and the Greek name for the north wind, Boreas.

For more info please visit:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora


In Finnish folklore, an element of mystery is associated with Lapland, the country’s northernmost province. Many a myth stems from the ancient animistic beliefs of the Sami, the Arctic tribe and Europe’s only indigenous people.

In Sami mythology, everything has a soul. Thus, every living and non-living being has a story of their own. Rocks and trees, foxes and reindeer, the Northern Lights in the sky and the knife in the reindeer herder’s hand all carry knowledge and wisdom within. Spirits are present in everything, wherever one wanders.


LAND OF THE SHAMANS

In the old days, Sami medicine men foretold one’s fate through visions. Healing, both spiritual and physical, was practised through shamanism and making contact with the spirit world.


Life in Lapland follows the cycle of Mother Nature, and the stark contrasts between the four seasons dictate the pace.


THE ONENESS OF NATURE AND MAN

Being able to wander in the wildernesses with nothing but your thoughts is a key part of Lapland’s attraction. A feeling of being one with nature is still among one of the most empowering feelings humans can experience.

Like all spiritual experiences, Lapland needs to be seen and felt; describing states of mind never quite gets up there with the actual experience. Words fail to capture the feeling of actually standing on top of a fell gazing at the vast wilderness all around you… now that can send a tingle down the spine.
