Awen

Awen In Druidry, divine inspiration. “Awen” is Welsh
for “gift of the gods” or “inspiration.” Awen is especially
associated with the poetic inspiration that comes to the
bard in trance or altered state of consciousness. In Celtic
lore, the goddess Cerridwen brews Awen in her cauldron.
Three drops fall upon the fingers of Gwion, a
youth who was her assistant, giving him great and magical
knowledge.
In Druidry, Awen is chanted in ceremonies to receive
divine inspiration and knowledge. It is part of making
magic, the ability to manifest dreams and goals.
