Irish shaman’s sacred objects ‘a miracle’
A shamans sacred objects, like a bowl or a wooden chair, were not a rare sight in Ireland’s indigenous communities.
But now, they are being given new life as they were once worshipped by thousands of Irish people.
The Irish Times is reporting that, thanks to the work of a couple who have been living in the UK for over 50 years, they have a piece of Irish mythology that was once worshipped in a place called the Holy Land.
They are a group of shamans called the Irish Priests who worshipped a number of objects from Celtic mythology.
“The items are sacred to the people who worshipped them,” said one of the Irish priests, who asked not to be named.
The item that the couple has unearthed was a Celtic spear that was carved into the rock of a cliff in the Dorset Mountains of England.
They also say that it is a very old object and that it was part of the ritual of the Druids.
“This was probably a very early time in Celtic mythology and was associated with the Druid gods and the Druadon,” they said.
In Ireland, there are a number other pieces of Irish legend that have been found.
“A few centuries ago, we found a large, beautifully carved wooden spear from the Celtic region in the area now known as the Highlands,” said Dr Mary Daly from the Department of Archaeology at the University of Dundee.
“That was part the Celtic ritual of cutting up and putting into the ground what they would later call the spear of the Sun.”
And this was part, I think, of a larger ritual involving the Druads.
“They cut up the spear and put it into the earth.
And this is one of those things that is still with us today.”
The spear is part of a Celtic ritual that involves cutting up a spear and putting it into a field of grass.
“It is part the ritual which is associated with cutting up the spears and the other objects which are associated with that ritual,” Dr Daly said.
The discovery is part one of a three-part series by the couple, who are from the UK.
“We have a number sacred objects which we are working on and they are a blessing to the world,” the priest said.
“I think the fact that we have the items is a miracle.”
