The gaulish cult.

 

The gaulish cult. Druidism, naturals spirits. Gallic Druidism. Druidism, naturals spirits. Gallic Druidism. Ancient Druidism has indeed come down to us, we note the presence of very official druids until at least the 12th century in England and existing communities in France until at least 1650, in the Arré mountains. for example. In addition, many ceremonies such as Locronan's great tromenia have never been extinguished over the centuries. The theory of a unique resurgence whose starting point is due to the work of iolo Morgan only does not hold, even if we must respect all the work he has provided. Three religious and philosophical foundations Are at the base of all the dogmatics of the Gallic druidic cult. "Honor the gods", that is to say "honor the world around you". "Be brave", "have no fears" "Never do evil", which amounts to saying "respect universality". HONOR, BE WHOLE, RESPECT Cantalon All the meetings were held in musical rhythms to maintain harmony between the guests. This post was there to separate what was divine on the sky and what was earthly on the ground. The Gauls believed in the persistence of spirit and soul after death and in the resurrection. To prevent the souls of the deceased from coming back to haunt them, the druid was asked to erect a cantalon, where Madera. It is a stone or wood pillar, circular or quadrangular, engraved with an epitaph dedicated to the goddess, gods or the deceased. (The mimicry with the menhirs is disturbing, they have a flat on their ridge which was probably used to place an offering as well). On this occasion the druids sang the Docni, poems, and Nature, incantations, to appease the spirits of all. It is almost certain that the cantalons were erected in places reserved for this, the Médiolanon, sacred ground, and that they were also used to reconcile the good grace of the gods, to improve the lives of people. It seems that a basket of fruit or others was placed on the pillar. The height of this column is sufficient for its ridge to emerge with the heavens, the kingdom above. Each Cantalon has a church and this is where the ceremonies take place. The presence of natural water nearby is a condition of the place chosen, in a clearing maybe. Detail of the cantalon, it is a basket in offering to the stars, later the invaders replaced it with idols. Detail of the cantalon, it is a basket in offering to the stars, later the invaders replaced it with idols. These ritual pillars are offered to the philosophical deities of the upper world while in the cellars they are replaced by a table, always of one foot, which is surrounded by statuettes of deities. I concluded that religious worship took place in the world below while philosophical worship related to the stars. By digging my tongue a little, I found a Gallic word which vorresponds enough to these standing stones, in connection with the virility of the chiefs: "Bussu". The dolmens certainly belonging to the matrix aspect of the feminine. Crypts. Some elevations were dug to build a crypt dedicated to a divinity or a high personality of the cult. Several have been found buried under old Christian churches from the Gallic period. Certainly dedicated to the gods below like Maponos. The cult of the waters of light. Megalithism. Megalithism. It was in front of the reflection of the stars in the water that the prophecies were, written or rather enacted the next day. Druid is a word that comes from the root "ruis", it means: the flow, the rush and the way (the sap, the knowledge of the tree, of the oak in this case.) Good practice is to swim at night on a clear, warm day. So you will find yourself swimming among the stars, you will understand them better by mixing with them. The multi-millennial basins ("souxtu") found in yellow stones for example, were used to reflect the depth of the starry sky in the reflection of water, a vital element par excellence. Light and water, don't forget. Druidism. Druidism. A face on a vase that contains his soul, the water and the light of life. We find the same engraved on a stone in Spain. There are 4 faces around the rim of the vase normally, birth, youth, maturity and death. I also found a water spiral with 4 footsteps, or 4 stages of advancement on a -5000 year old vase. It's dated, see the "Aesus" sheet. Druid Druid Fish. The grain of the wood contains everything, you just have to make it appear. Poplar root fish. The grain of the wood contains everything, you just have to make it appear. Poplar root fish. In the spiritual oceans, the skies, move many mythol creaturesogic, including the fish (among others), sirhialon dedicated to the powers of Esus. You will find the page in the druidotheque. Sacrifices. Idolatry in human form is a horror for the Druids, the idols were destroyed because they considered that if the divine light inhabits all living individuals, in the world below, they themselves are only the receptacles. of this world, will never really be gods, idols are only dead things, the light of divine consciousness has never inhabited them. They can become magicians according to their uses, in Gallic times the magi were considered demigods. It is because of this way of seeing the divine world that the Druids systematically made enemies in the world of ancient obscurantist European beliefs. And these religious enemies took good revenge by denigrating Druidic practices in a sacrificial light that these same ancient authors worshiped. These are two conceptions of the divinity which could not agree and it is this which caused so many lies. The fable which describes a wicker mannequin containing hundreds of people is further proof that some of these historians were above all sworn enemies of the Druids. Making this kind of mannequin is physically impossible. On the other hand, I am willing to accept the fact that this story undoubtedly came from the tales of Gallic mythology, perhaps that of an ancient Gargantua, that the druids would have invented to scare other powerful nations at the time, powerful but with a completely obscurantist way of thinking. This mannequin, you will still find it today in the fields, much more humble by its size, in the form of a scarecrow. Of course, today no human sacrifice is made. This use has a systematic link with the acquisition of political and military power in Europe. All over Europe people were sacrificing their former fallen potentates. Thus eliminating their rivals. The Gauls, like all ancient peoples used it, but obviously on a very small scale because the mass graves mostly contain animal bones, not like the Romans or the Christians. The cult of Esus is reflected from certain writings by the sacrifice of a man, tied in a tree, in the position of the constellation of the eagle, mortuary animal, the Gallic cult had not sacrificed him thus at the beginning. . The Druids balked at human sacrifice, the engine of philosophy is humanism, but it was permissible for someone to offer their life in exchange for benefits for their tribes, it is not certain, we have no proof direct from that. In fact the ancient authors who describe sacrifices among the Gauls, are themselves known to appreciate this kind of practice or indeed for politically involved deceitful beings. All of that is over now. There has probably never been any generalized sacrificial rites emanating directly from the wishes of the religious and even less of the Druids. All the images painted lately describing Druidic sacrifices come from the fantasies of disturbed people who wanted to live a little more intensely than usual. The best idea of human sacrifice is the one we carry today, to sacrifice our life in the service of a cause, while remaining alive and why not, happy. The obedience capacity of our Gauls was clearly and in any case very high. NB: the stone crucibles that were discovered were absolutely not used for sacrifices, that is Catholic gossip, in truth they were used to collect the water in which we could see the depth of the stars (which is impossible in the blood). Soothsayers. The ancient writings relate the fact that the druids threw a series of wooden sticks on the moving water and interpreted the astrological signs which formed at random, when the sticks joined together ... the appearance of such or such form of sirhialons gave the indication of a precise idea. "Who can interpret the signs" These are of course symbols in relation to the stars because the epochs and animalistic genera correspond to the Gallic periods. More precisely to the heights of the spiritual tree and to the celestial oceans. Many Sirhialons bearing Greek names correspond to their Gallic alter-egos. Another form of divinatory practice is embodied in the so-called "hare" ceremony. The druid-diviner released a hare in order to know if the omens were good or bad. He deduced this according to the direction that the animal was taking in relation to the position of the sun and the 4 land capes. We found a carved bas-relief showing a druid with a torc holding the sacred hare. In addition, Bodicea the British Druidess also used the hare for her prophecies.Kernos (where Cernos, from Kern). The kernos are special places made up of a dolmen covered with stones arranged in a circle. To use them, you have to take a nap inside the circle and drink from the nearby spring. This is where premonitory dreams appear. This place designated as pagan should not inspire rejection or fears caused by obscurantism, it is in fact a place of peace. Magic. Druids are also nicknamed: "those of the magic below" (from the world below). This world is that of the interior of the mountain, the world of thought. "The Gallic world is a world totally dedicated to magic". The great magic cathedral of the saplings is everyone Gallic, the forest of the gods which surrounded the towns and villages too, magic was everywhere. The Chamalières tablet. The Equites are Gallic knights. I translated the tablet of Chamalières and surprise, it relates an enchantment which allowed the Equites to win. It was written by a druid. "Our wish is to reach the forest where the gods reside (the forest is the thought of the gods), The son of the bear (forest tribe) has a good future, We ourselves are the magic of the world below, The wolf (Tanaris) keeps our border forever, To avenge the suffering inflicted by foreigners, the horsemen overcame with ease, We have inflicted great losses fully, This moment still shines with the force of the oath (prayer), A unique destiny unfolded briskly, Our first quality righted the inflicted disloyalty, We have seen widening the ultimate limit ordered according to the ritual ("onson" means "by what we have done) It will be (the opposing oath) consumed, completely consumed, Completely consumed and consumed. The druids were therefore magicians coming from the magic of the world below but also that of the middle world and of course that of the world above. If the druids abhor aggression, on the other hand, they do not hesitate to act in the defense of their tribe. I note a parallel with the mastery of the energies which when they are badly mastered can be consumed, the druid then loses his oath force and the one who "wins" consumes the energies, making them his own. Lug is the god possessing this magic, however it should be understood that he has 3 lands, the one below where the magic consumes and obscures, the one of the mediums where it is normally balanced, non-acting, and the world above, where the magic is consumed, there it is luminous. Something very important also shines through in this text, the gods inhabit a forest, and I bet you that they appear there in the form of trees, multi-centenary trees or even more, multi-millennia, I say that because if the gods were represented by animals in this forest, this would undoubtedly have been clarified. Moreover Lucain speaks of a forest where the gods are represented carved in trees, (like the korigénatos), a forest where the people did not have the right to go. He mentions sacrifices on these trees but the author has never been in this forest and therefore could not directly testify because it was forbidden by the druids, like everyone else. Any art critic will find that the artist takes a surrealist pose in this text, he does not describe reality. In fact, he writes that only the priest went to this forest and it is well known that the Druids did not deal directly with matters of religion. He largely abused his talents to denigrate the Gallic religion on this occasion, he was politically Roman, so it is a testimony for the prosecution which rests on a fund of truth to pass a huge lie at the time when the Gallic religion came to 'be prohibited. I can say that these trees were located on a rock and that a source where a stream was close to this place. Gavrinis and Labeaume are perhaps places where they once grew. My experience as an artist also allows me to affirm that one can sculpt a living tree, while keeping it alive, and that the result evokes the primary virtues of Druidism and its deities maintained in a relative eternity with respect to human lifespan. The result is bright with human expressiveness. This part of the cycle belongs to the druids doctors and magicians. This same tree, once dead, transforms itself in the corruption of the wood into a work with an evil stench, which then belongs to black priesthoods that I suspect are pre-Masonic. The Romans deliberately confused the two parts, vital and mortuary, insisting on the horror of these dead trees, in order to denigrate Druidism. An example of these mortuary trees is found in the nave of Catholic churches. Fish. Fish. Lucain was a writer, an artist who committed suicide at the age of 25, born a Roman, he traveled to the conquered Gallic lands. It was Nero who ordered him to commit suicide because he had sown discord (once again) by getting involved in politics. (As soon as Gaul was conquered, the Roman Empire went into disrepair, no doubt due to bad luck, or a political imbalance of the powers of ancient Europe.) Burials. The excavations bear witness to a true mortuary cult. Often, graves contain humans mixed with animal remains. We can rightly assume that during the passage of death, the human soul integrates an animal body. This means that the sacred animals were considered as the receptacle of the soul of the ancestors before a new birth, to be reincarnated in the bodies of men or women. The soul would not die, it was transported in animal bodies, this explains the Gallic beliefs well (it is true that animals have human characters and vice versa). This makes it possible to understand the construction of the Gallic names which designate a character or an animality. The Dusios, are lost souls who have not found their receptacle animal, from then on, they come back to haunt the living. "Aîdusios" means "the one who does not advance" or "the one who returns". The deceased were buried in priestly positions, facing east, towards the light of a new dawn where, in the case of cremations, tallow lamps systematically accompanied the ashes of the deceased to light his way on a new road, new life, the resurrection. (I deduced that the prayers were performed by turning to the east) It took place in three phases belonging to the great mother goddess Morigana. The first was death and the past consummated (Mori). The second was the memory of the dead (Riga), through a rite. The third was that of the weaver who was preparing the braid of new life and resurrection (Ana). I think it happened according to a precise diagram, the body is buried or burnt, it dissolves and brings its material to a tree planted above (the spirit is reincarnated in the tree), this tree brings food to a other animal or human life is the final reincarnation). Nb: did the Gauls think that trees were their own ancestors? Nb2: the druids were cremated with their lyre. Nb3: there is mention of cremations directly at the place of worship, not like today. The wedding. It seems that the divinities of marriage were Sucellus and Nantosuelta on the carnal plane, Teutates on the spiritual plane. See the dedicated page. The date of the wedding is determined by the druid as all the moments needing a good omen. In the event of bad omen, it can be postponed for several hours or several days. "If your day starts badly, get married in the evening" The brides wear the symbols of the couple on them. The clothes are loose. The woman carries a carafe or a jug which represent maternal waters, as well as a purse containing coins or seeds representing the dowry and the role of financial manager of the household. The man wears a small pot representing blood filiation, the sem, as well as a hammer-type tool, a mass or other representing the work of male strength. Of course today it's folklore but it can't hurt. The Warriors. I am already talking about equities on other sheets of this site. I will add here that the tombs with the tanks which have been found represent the cult of combat and advancement even after physical death. It is the chariot of time that led by the sacred horses takes the ancient chieftains and sometimes their warriors through the world of the dead in an endless fight towards the light. If certain religions speak of paradise or of harems conceded to the heroes, among the Gallic warriors the continuous combat, the horsemen in particular appear this continuity on the old coins. Always the sacred horse is present and these ghosts continue their terrible course. We can count on the fact that these infinity fighters came back to "annoy" their former enemies even after their physical death. The stone mountain. The sea urchin of the druids. The stone tables, the dolmens, were all covered with a stony tumulus. (So they were not used for sacrifices), we found very few remains in these dolmens so we cannot say either that they were sacred burials. What I think is quite simple, all the openings of these temples are turned towards a hollow where the waters flow, it is a facet of the worship of the waters. The priests entered this mountain to find divine inspiration, to commune with the other world, to bring back new reflections. These circular burial mounds have things in common with the time cycles. And most of them contain remains of small sea shells en necklaces where also marine fossils. All that is in relation with the celestial oceans which contain the memory of what was and which preserve it. I deduce that the famous fossil sea urchin of the Druids comes from these places where they were taught the five fundamental values of Druidism, the five-pointed star drawn naturally on the fossil. The five foundations of Druidism could be: -pure -enlightened -subtle -solid -proportionate Where more philosophical: -desire -happiness -freedom -justice -respect Normally, these five words in Gallic had five letters in relation, five letters which form the name of something deified. (That too I shouldn't have said). Let me guess .... the sons of the bear had for great divinity ... ARTOS, that is to say the great mythical king of the Gauls, Teutates on earth, kernunos in the heavens? Let's see: Atîr: Father Rex: King Touta: tribal Orbit: Heir Sîlo: posterity ARTOS, the king, father of the tribe whose posterity we inherit. It works and it cannot be due to chance. Try to translate your own name and you will have a surprise. It should also be noted that the shell of this sea urchin, when it is not fossilized, shows a constellation of small stars on its dome, there between the places where the protective peaks were placed. The resemblance of the animal to certain crowned, thorny heads from Europe is not fortuitous, it is the crown of the night sky, the dome of time. NB: the drawing of this sea urchin, you will find it shown in the arrangement of the stonehenge stones (five points an opening_five doors an opening). Now we know why the fossil was so sacred to the Druids, it connected them directly to the spiritual center. As additional proof, I would make the link between the eternity of the fossil sea urchin and the 30 years of the Gallic calendar of Coligny which can be found in the stone circle. The dolmens? Given the plurality of these "mountains" I think that each officiant of pre-Gallic antiquity had an official one, just like the druidic lyres, they were used only for one person. Another thing, it seems that the sea urchin was deposited in the center of grounds like the spiritual center on the occasion of incanting ceremonies, it seems ... The average age of the dolmens is -3000 years, later an evolution of the cult transformed these tumuli into royal tombs, but the interior frame was mostly built in wood at this point, more in large slabs of stones. In northern Spain, these dolmens are linked together by ancient roads, like a processional path. The final goal of these paths is found in large Neolithic places of worship, by the ocean. Even today, Payenne ceremonies, called the serpent of light (the Milky Way) still take place there, 4000 years of processions. We are now sure that they were not used for human sacrifices, but were related to star worship and the notion of spiritual journey. (See map, philosopher's stone) As on the Labeaume plateau, medicinal plants grow precisely and in profusion on these places, and the presence of healers has been attested since Gallic antiquity. Women doctors who were hunted down by the Christian inquisition and burned by the hundreds. The dolmens belonged to a so-called matrix, healing feminine cult, embodying the divergence of the path, their names were undoubtedly: "Gabalos", the feminine forks of healing. Another direct relationship with the sulévias, goddesses of the roads. Nb: dolmens were indeed used until very late in the Druidic cult. The name of the deity adored on the ancient path of the dolmens has been preserved in Iberian memory, it is "Mori", Mary. It is not far to think that these tables of stones were dedicated to the first cult of resurrection and miraculous healing. That of a mother goddess. Mori, the sea, to the south Ana, water, in the Irish and English islands Where nemetunia, the celestial ocean, further east. Still the same trace of Atlantis. Another clue that links the dolmens to a maritime feminine cult is the style and finesse of the small shell necklaces found in the places. In Gallic times, the druids officiated in underground passages which are places representing the world below, like the ancient dolmens. It is the interior of the mountain, the world below and the night of the druids. The spiritual center. Here again, we have proof that modern druids did keep much of the ancient rituals. They still use something quite similar, made of petals, mosses and other colorful natural elements. The spiritual center is a design composed of various colors in the center of which isleft the sea urchin during the ceremonies. From what I could find on the archaeological elements, it is composed as follows: three circles arranged one inside the other of three different colors. The whole is placed in the middle of a square and on each outer edge of this square are arranged three black triangles, which makes twelve in all. Prayers. There were at least two kinds of prayers, the Docni, poems which set forth the teachings of dogma, and the Litana which are litanies, repetitive songs to the glory or to the downfall of a divinity (the Larzac tablet). I would certainly one day give you elements and effects of texts specific to ancient Druidism. They were performed by turning to the east, standing towards a new dawn. This Gallic cult is very modeled on temporality, it is even its primordial axis, so I think that the places of worship were visited constantly (day and night), in a perpetual movement. Given the arrangement of the sanctuaries found, I can say that the Assembly was arranged in a circle around a sacred center. This is still the case for modern Druidism which has clearly kept traces of its ancient past. Singing is the preferred means of expression of our spirituality. With the study of Sucellus and Nantosuelta, I learned that the couple played a particular music, made of sensuality, there are many probabilities that each of the 12 main deities were represented by a particular music. And I think I know how to find the rhythm, think of the rhythms of the water through the seasons and the months .... Dating of the oldest monuments: around 6000 years. First petroglyph depicting Kernunos with a horn and a serpent: -10,000 years old, in a territory corresponding to the old Ligurian tribes. (That's 12,000 today). So given the relationship with the cult of the waters and some found remains, I tend to say: ........... 10,000 years of history. The oldest religion in the world, the age of human civilization of the oldest cultivators. It makes you dizzy. One of the discoveries that allows me to say this is the presence of deer "antlers" buried in the ditch that surrounds Stonehenge, reminiscent of the cult of Adamos (Lug on earth) and two large skulls of Aurochs (Donn the bull) arranged at the beginning and at the end of the circle (giant cycle representing a "TORC"). This arrangement is found on the vase found in Denmark. The deer god represented on the vase is Lug (and the deer: Adamos), son of Kernunos who carries the horns of the spiritual tree. The bull is at the beginning and end of the story Lugus tells while holding the snake. All this always comes down to understanding the sacred calendar which is transcribed in the book of revelations. 10,000 years of history. Mortuary gestation. (Mori) Silimilar Christian with Mary imagery supporting the dead son. Mortuary gestation. (Mori) Silimilar Christian with Mary imagery supporting the dead son. Gallic zodiac. You will find on this site the description of the philosopher's stone from which all the zodiacs derive, in all cultures throughout the world (12 apostles, 12 zodiacal signs, 12 angels, 12 sacred animals of Shintoism ... etc ... even the ancient pyramidal cultures of America have these 12 divines inscribed in their 21 sacred symbols. The Gallic zodiac is no exception to the rule and is even more successful, proof that it is the one from which the others originate, but obviously, in addition to the 12 zodiacal months, 24 principles of antagonistic animalities are also represented (1 fortnight each) which all represent a bardic, artistic expression (silence or expressiveness, forgetfulness or memory ... etc) This is why many animals are represented in Gallic worship, 32 or 33. General schematic. According to the majority of Druids, kernunos is the male solar principle, the sun. Lugus is his son who represents the light of day. Donn is his second son, closer to Nemetona his mother, he represents the darkness of what is not physical, the world of thoughts. To this must be added the feminine principle, where Nemetunia is the great mother goddess of the night and the celestial oceans, Étunia the full moon is her daughter who represents the reflection of light in the night, the second daughter who is undoubtedly Morgana, represents the black moon, or total darkness. The turning cross. The cross that you all know is also present everywhere as a symbol of ancient Druidism. It defines the 4 seasons of the calendar at the same time as the 4 phases of the life of a Gallic. The Celts represent it surrounded by a circle and they do well because it shows a cycle that turns. It is a cross that turns incessantly, for eternity. On the Gallic coins, it is always foundleaning, to print a movement. The 4 branches of this Gallic cross are equal, no part is anchored in the ground. Normally it should be the two equinoxes and the two solstices which intersect in the wheel of the year. The Swastika is a very old symbol of Druidism, it shows this rotating cross like the four hooves of the horse which mark time in rhythm. * Nb: I think that the standing stones of Carnac are votive stones, they were planted there as a sign of passage on this land by those who came on pilgrimage, just before going to the sanctuary of the island of Gavrinis. Offerings To The Gods. The allegations concerning human sacrifices are most often unfounded. The soldiers themselves at that time had recourse to offerings of wine for the gods below, passionate. Animal bones have also been found, but in a limited number and this does not correspond to the dimensions of the places of worship concerned everywhere. On the other hand, enormous jars of wine were gutted in these places. The capacity of which corresponded to underground tanks, from the world below. Diviciacos would have practiced bull sacrifices but there again it was not representative of the thought of the Gallic druids. He was a culturally speaking outcast. He was in contact with sacrificial messianism. In some better specific ones we find pits filled with animal bones but were they not used as food for the liturgical feasts bringing together the clans? Regarding human sacrifices and in view of the lies told by the Messianists, there is hardly any evidence. Horses were killed to accompany their master in the afterlife, to lend him the strength to move forward. It was not a sacrifice but a mortuary rite. An enclosure was found with men killed and tied up on exterior stakes as a warning. They weren't sacrifices either. If anyone has pictures from that time, let him show them. People who adhere to savage sacrifices are just poorly educated morons and psychiatric cases. And have never been part of the Druidic milieu, religious or not, it's impossible. In our modern time the druids also make offerings, to heaven through their psalms, and to the world below through flowers buried in holes where hollow in the rock, it is rather good spirit.
