these goddesses had a maternal
function and were closely identified with the
Brigid is a prime example
of this type of deity which is
associated with the sacred number three, the triple aspect of the divine.
Brigid had two sisters, patrons of healing and smithcraft. She was
venerated not only as Brigid, but also as Bride, Briginda, Brigidu, and in
North Britain as Briganda, which can be translated as 'High One or Exalted One'. Other
titles include; 'Ashless Flame', 'Flame of Two Eternities', and 'Mother of All
One of the most potent
symbols of Brigid is fire. Her triple nature relates to the
fire of the hearth and smithy, the
flame of life and
healing, and the flame of

traditions the hearth is connected to

circle of the campfire divided the world into two parts: the safe, domestic
part, and the Wild. Here was the hearth, the center of the circle of
domesticity. Here was warmth, keeping the cold world at a distance. Here was
safety, keeping predators at bay. Here was light, defining a human realm but
making the night beyond all the deeper, all the more alien. Outside the circle
of firelight was the other, the wild, the unknown."- Charles
As the patroness of filidhact, bardic
lore, Brigid guides the flame of
poetry and divination.
Heroes who set off on
spiritual tasks would also request protection
and guidance from Brigid.
Another important symbol of Brigid is water, which in all its forms was venerated in
the Celtic times.
Sacred springs, many associated with Brigid, were a
focus for Celtic rituals. Spring
water symbolically unites the underworld and the upper world
by rising out of the darkness of the Earth
and reflecting the light of the heavens. Hot springs
provide a link between fire and
water, Brigid's key symbols. All springs
and wells remain powerful sources of
inspiration, healing, and a
means of both physical and spiritual
One legend which
connects Brigid with water, tells how a crystal drop from the
mantle of Brigid touched the Earth and
became a deep and clear lake. This was said to
be a lake from Tir-Na-Moe 'Land of the Living
Heart' and there was healing in it for all
weariness and battle wounds.
Historical references to Saint Brigid
begin in the seventh century. Saint Brigid was venerated in an Irish convent at
Kildare or Cill Dara, which means the church of the Oak Tree. Originally the site of an ancient temple
with a perpetual flame, a magical ashless

the goddess was remembered as another saint, St.

as patron saint of the family hearth, originally a

day of February, dedicated to Brigid, is
known as Imbolg, meaning 'of/in the womb'. Another
name connected with this celebration is Oimelc, a Germanic word meaning 'ewes-milk' or 'lactation', which is a direct
reference to the birth of young animals in the
According to Celtic tradition Imbolg was the first
day of spring and stock who had been penned in for
the winter were allowed out.
On Brigid's Eve in parts of Ireland it was
customary for groups of young girls, who were either disguised or clad in
white, to go from house to house singing and dancing. The
householders would give the girls a
gift for Brigid, usually either eggs or money. The leader usually was a girl
who would carry an image of Brigid, a 'brideog', into
the fields. The brideog was fashioned from
rushes or oats and decorated with colored shells, spring
flowers, greenery and ornaments.
The best and brightest of ornaments were attached over the
heart and called reul-iuil Bride, The 'Guiding
Star of Brigid'.
Older women prepared a Brigid's Bed which was made of
an oval basket filled with rushes. A straw image was
placed in the basket which was put on the hearth. Then the main door was opened
and the men said a prayer invoking and asking Brigid to come in for her bed was
Brigid was believed to travel with her white milk-cow on her
festival and bring blessings to each household. In some areas of Scotland and
Ireland offerings of grass were left on doorsteps for her cow.

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which
requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church
buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a
personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the
knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has
enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a
This web site in no way condones violence. To the
contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring
due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race.
The international corporate cartel already controls the world central banking
system, mass media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment
complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of
self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over
the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more
power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general
through mass media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed
into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The
results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social
structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of
a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
