Manannán mac Lir is the Irish God of the Sea. He is a psychopomp with strong ties to the oceans and to hose who have died at sea. The Mists of Manannán (pronounced “mon-AHN-awn”) guard the gate to the Otherworld. In order to pass beyond and commune with the Ancestors, the Mists of Manannán must first be parted. This gate may also be seen as the divide between the conscious mind and the unconscious mind, which may only be parted through the dream world.
Aquatic plants are sacred to Manannán, as are sea animals, especially mammals like seals and whales.
Invoke Manannán in matters pertaining to the Otherworld and spirit contact. If Manannán comes to you, especially in dream time, a sacred Ancestor may have a message for you.
