Here I will be sharing my journeys in Nature with the Bituatîs and other nature based things such as

Gortiatîs – spirits of the garden
Moniiatîs – spirits of the mountains
Abonatîs – spirits of rivers
Nantuatîs – spirits of the valley.

Bituatîs means Earthspirits in Gaulish. I will not be getting into all that at the moment as you all know what Earthspirits are so no need for repeating info like that.

We Galatis are very animistic we believe that all within the Cosmos is alive with spirit, these are divine entities that we build a relationship with. As such these are sacred spirits that deserve our devotion .”
