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 Wisdom'.
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 divine

"The 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

lore, Brigid guides the flame of
poetry and divination.

symbol of Brigid is water, which in all its forms was venerated in
the Celtic times.
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 purification.
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Historical references to Saint Brigid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 fire.
Scotland the goddess was remembered as
another saint, St. Brigit of the Isles. To this day
she is remembered as patron saint of the family hearth, originally a peat fire
that was kept burning in her honor.
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 spring.
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 ready.
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.
The goddess Brigid is a great
eternal being who, like the
flame of life itself, keeps alight and rekindles hope and
sacred power of Brigid can act as a catalyst

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 "hate

behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on

social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as
the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power

the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do
not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of
