If you missed the first part of John’s article on the first ‘medium’, then click here.
As the White Race grew, their authority encompassed all of Northern Europe. They then became known as the Celts, this applied to all people, whose language was similar to the Gauls.
It was not long before they controlled this large land mass, set up colleges, if you will, to educate the women, for they now had supreme power over religion and government. Each of the colleges had a Head Mistress; they were responsible only to Voluspa. The Head Mistresses were called Druidesses and from the name of these Head Mistresses, Druidism received its name. These teachers became the professors of mysticism and occultism, and were most proficient in delivering the oracles.
As time went by, the natural course of events began to evolve, those with power wanted more and, except under rare conditions, this appears to be a human frailty. As the authority of the Druidesses increased they became power mongers and they then began to abuse the privileges of leadership. The abuse eventually led to their downfall.
They instituted a system of human sacrifices as part of a religious program. It appears that when the Druidesses failed to contact the higher intelligence, it began to create problems, instead of looking within for the root cause of their problems, which no doubt was an overly inflated ego, they decided that because of the lack of spirit contact, it would be necessary to send a messenger between the living and their ancestors. I suppose it did not occur to them, that if they were unable to contact their usual source, how could they contact a new intelligence they had sent over, by the way of sacrifice?
Human sacrifices began; the messengers were greatly honoured by the people. However, it was a short lived honour. Even the Kings were not excluded from this honour of being a messenger. In times of difficulties and tribulations a large wooden cage would be built, and several messengers would be put in with various animals. The religious significance of the animals being sacrificed, with the humans appears to have been lost in antiquity. As the sacrifices burned, the Druidesses and the people stood around intoning messages of their needs, to be carried by the sacrificed messengers to their ancestors, hoping to receive an answer. The rule of terror could not continue; the people became frightened, about who would be the next messenger. It was difficult to blame them, since it was a permanent position, the Druidesses began to lose their popularity and the men began, to assert their authority once again. They wondered who was next for the sacrificial altar. This was the factor which led to the demise of Druidess authority. They then became subordinate to men.
Druidism began to falter, but for many centuries it was especially strong in Ireland. To this day the Irish tell many tales of fairies, nature spirits and elves, mostly seen in the deep forests, where nature is undisturbed. The Druids worshipped the sun, moon and forests, their prophets foretold future events.
Many of our present religious and ordinary customs can be related to Druidism. One example is the winding of the maypole, and our May 1st is a modification of their planting ceremony. The raven still has managed to maintain its mystic mantel in occult practices today.
Fabre d’Olivet said in his summation, despite her errors, Voulspa brought a greater understanding to humanity than others before her time. She not only appears to be the first historical mother of religion, she also, because of a special quality of voice and rhythm which she inspired the other Druidesses to use, led to the first system of music rhythm, poetry and languages. Even though the teachings of Voulspa were filled with superstition, with the lack of knowledge of spiritual and psychic laws, her contact with the higher forces became an epitaph to her fame.
I had a reading with Teya today. I was blown away by her understanding of my current situation. She made some very positive predictions and advice. I look forward to the outcome. Teya has a lovely warm personality and it radiates in her voice. Towards the end of the reading at my request she brought through some family members who passed over. I found her descriptions and messages spot on! I would love to connect with her again. Many thanks.
