An Introduction to Ogham

The Ogham Stone - An Introduction to Ogham

The marks on the edges of this pillar stone (left) are characters from an alphabet that was used in fifth-century Ireland.
Known as ogham, the 25-letter alphabet was supposedly inspired by Ogma, god of eloquence.

  • Ogham was carved and read from BOTTOM to TOP.
    (Also carved, occasionally, right to left).
  • Also written as ogam or ogum, it is pronounced “AHG-m” or “OH-ehm.”
  • Ogham served as an alphabet for one of the ancient Celtic languages. Its origin is uncertain: it may have been adapted from a sign language.
    Current understanding is that the names of the main twenty letters are also the names of 20 trees sacred to the druids.
    Some authors have suggested the existance of a 13 month calendar which shared some of these names.
  • A 15th century treatise on Ogham, The Book of Ballymote, confirms that ogham was a secret, ritualistic language.
    However, there is no direct evidence that the Ogham alphabet was used [in antiquity] for divination or any other magical purposes. ( see notes )

Do second-hand clothes contain psychic energy?

I have a beautiful crocheted shawl that my mom used in church every Sunday. I’m the last almost four years since she has crossed into the Summerlands to be with my dad, seven younger siblings, my son that crossed over and our ancestors I feel myself drawn to wrapping the shawl around my shoulders during very stressful times, illnesses, and when I am in a downward spiral of depression. I can feel her warmth, love, and comfort every time I wear it. I keep it on the back of a year that was her grandmother’s in my den/altar room when not using it and have not felt the need to wash it because it is as bright of white as the day I inherited, the day of her funeral service my youngest daughter gave it to me.

As I am not feeling so good after having three teeth pulled Wednesday afternoon. I was instant messaging with one of my mom’s cousins, whom I found out follows a spirituality similar to mine. She made a statement she wished she lived closer so she could give me some surrogate mother’s TLC. Which made me think of my shawl and immediately wrapped in around me and felt slightly better. So it got me wondering if we leave a residual energy on clothing and if others besides empath could pick up on it. The following is an article I found on this topic

 

People wear used clothing for many reasons. One might purchase a dress in a thrift shop, receive an old pocketbook from a friend who no longer uses it or simply exchange used clothes with others as a way to save money.  But can those second-hand items contain the psychic energy of their former owners? Many spiritual healers say yes.

We are always emitting energy, and our energy is infused in our clothing and the many objects around us. If you’ve ever walked into a room and felt your mood shift, you may have experienced the impact of one’s energy on his or her surroundings.
