Gimme Shelter

Brigid, the Mother of Wisdom, had a maternal function and was closely identified with the land.

The Celts formulated female triads to overcome the bicameral mind.

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, 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 the triple nature Brigid is FIRE:

the flame of life and healing;

the fire of the hearth and smithy;

the flame of divine inspiration.

The hearth is the focus of the
home and integral to everyday functions.

"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 Eisenstein

campfire of the hearth

Norwegian Wood

"No earthly water can quench the

flame of divine wisdom."


In many ancient traditions the hearth is connected to the sun, the source of warmth and light.

As the patroness of filidhact (bardic lore) Brigid guides the flame of inspiration, poetry and divination.

Heroes on spiritual tasks request protection and guidance from Brigid.

A symbol of Brigid is water, in all its forms venerated.

Sacred springs, associated with Brigid, were a focus of 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 the link between fire and water.

All springs and wells remain powerful sources of inspiration, healing, and a means of both physical and spiritual purification.

One legend connecting 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Historical references to Saint Brigid begin in the seventh century.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 a site of an ancient temple with a perpetual flame, an ashless fire.

To Gaelic speaking Scots she is Saint Brigit of the Isles.

To this day she is remembered as patron saint of the family hearth, originally a peat fire kept burning in her honor.

The first 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.

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, clad in white, to go from house to house singing and dancing.

Householders would give the girls a gift for Brigid, either eggs or milk.

A teenage girl 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.

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.

The goddess Brigid is a great eternal being who, like the flame of life itself, keeps alight and rekindles hope and inspiration.

Brigid can act as a catalyst awakening creativity, compassion and talent.

Sophia is spiritual intelligence.

The Maiden : Beginnings

The Maiden signifies youth, the excitement of the chase, and the newness of life and magick. In human age she would be between puberty and her twenties. She does not have a mate. Her colors are soft & light, such as white, soft pink, or light yellow.

The Mother : Fruition

The Mother stands for nurturing, caring, fertility; she is a woman in the prime of her life and at the peak of her power. She protects her own and will ensure that justice is done and done well. This woman is usually mated. In human age, she would be seen as a woman in her thirties to mid-forties. Her colors are warmer than that of the maiden, such as green, copper, red, light purple or royal blue.

The Crone : Endings

The Crone is a being of age-old wisdom. She is shrew and counsels well. She cares for the Maiden and the Mother as well as the offspring thereof. She is logical and can be terrible in her vengeance. She stands at the door to the dimension of death. In human years, she is approximately 45 or older. The Crone is the most difficult of the three to place in human age. The Crone's traditional colors are black, gray, purple, brown or midnight blue.

"I came from the Lumière Infinie, that I might reveal everything. I have awakened the divine spark of Sophia, that it might bear fruit." - Sophia of Jesus

"Sophia is no rarefied divine being who dwells on high.

Sophia goes out into the world and gets her hands dirty.

Wisdom sets a table inviting those who appreciate her to partake.

The inclusive meals of Jesus, where he located his most intense teachings, deliberately transgressed the purity codes by including those considered unclean - terrorists, madmen, outcasts, heretics, and blasphemers.

An alliance of expediency between the religious and the political authorities murdered Jesus, Sophia's prophet and messenger." - Joanna Manning

Sophia in Greek, Asherah in Sumerian, Hohkma in Hebrew, Sapientia in Latin, Sheela-na-gigs in Celtic - all mean wisdom.

Sophia is revered as the Wise Bride of Solomon.

The Song of Songs - known as Song of Solomon or Canticle of Canticles - speaks of Solomon's marriage to Sophia, a descended or fallen goddess.

There are many references to Sophia in the Book of Proverbs and in the apocryphal books of Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon.

Sophia is the deity of wisdom called ḦṍḸẙ ṦṕḯṝḭṰ in Christianity.

The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race.

This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion 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 pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence.

Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards of a gun.

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 p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c☢rp☢rate media psych☢l☢gical ☢perati☢ns. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world.
