The Celtic Cosmology of Rev. Loush O’Raven part 3;
The Celtic Cosmology of Rev. Loush O’Raven
The classifications and definitions of the
spiritual hierarchy that exists within the realms of Spirit.
are terms one needs to know if one wishes to understand how I see the universe.
There is a spiritual hierarchy at work. Though I do not pray to or worship any
being but God, I work with many different spiritual beings after I have tested
them according to biblical tradition.
These are the terms;
and Foremost there is God, Creator and Lord of the Universe. Everything is
ultimately under his command and control.
Gaelic, God is said in the following ways depending on how you are using the
Dia(Dee ah or Jee ah) =
God A Dhia (Ah Yee ah) = God when you are talking directly to him/her Dé (Day or Jay) = of God
Céile Dé (Modern Gaelic) literally means Spouse(’s) of God
Implied meanings: children
of God, servants of God, Companions of God, Friends of God, Vassals of God,
Warriors of God, Minister of God, Vessels of God, Followers of God.
This is an old druidic Celtic term. In ancient times in the
Celtic lands this referred to a group of druids who sat as judges to here
different political and legal issues and gave rulings. However in my belief
system, like so many Gaelic Celtic terms or words, this word came from one of
the many fairie languages. I was told by my elemental teachers that this term
was originally used by the fairies to describe all beings who are not incarnate
humans, and who serve God by helping humanity. The Bre’hon are all of the
spiritual aids that God sends us. This group includes the angels, the angelic
beings, the saints the crowned saints, the ascended masters, spirit teachers,
spirit guides, Reiki guides, the martyrs, the ancestors, the elementals, and
the totems. So in my tradition this is the word we use for our spiritual
helpers. Judges is a fitting way to look at our spiritual helpers. Even the
bible says, “…and He shall give his angels charge over thee”. The bible also
talks about “the cloud of witnesses” constantly around us.
a race of beings who live in heaven with God, and work for him throughout the
entirety of the universe. Humans do not become angels when they die. Angels are
a different phylum. However despite what popular new age teachers like Sylvia
brown say, angels do have names; as everything in the universe has a name even
if we humans do not know those names. With the exception of the incident found
in geneses angels have never been human and never will be. They do often take
human form to walk and work amongst us. Most of the angels we deal with we
never even know we dealt with them. That is why scripture tells us to be
careful, because we never know when we are entertaining angels. God sends them
to help us constantly. We do not want to offend them with our bad behavior.
There just might be very negative consequences to our bad actions, and
misdeeds. Angels are here to help us and to serve God like we do. They are not
to be worshiped though they are higher then us in certain ways. They are to be
respected. Humans and angels learn from each-other scripture tells us. The angels
are also called the celestials, and the heavenly hosts.
these beings and creatures often called The Terrestrial
Hosts have a similar energetic frequency of angels and usually dwell amongst
the angels but they are different then angels. They are a class of or race of
beings between angels and elementals. They do not have the exact same degree of
authority that angels do. They are under the command of the angels.
these are people, saints, spiritual teachers, and beings that
have attained an extremely high level of spiritual wisdom, knowledge, power,
and a small degree of spiritual authority. They reside with God in heaven and
he sends them to teach the people who are mentally and spiritually evolved in
the slightest. They are like advanced spirit teachers if you will.
saints of high authority in heaven, like the apostles.
Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, St. John,
and St. Luke are amongst these people.
people of God who have died for the final time and entered heaven for all
eternity. Unlike what is popular mythology from various traditions like the
catholic traditions it does not take debate, earthly sanction or three miracles
to become a saint. It only takes being a believer in God and living a life of
faith. Some just may call this group “good spirits”.
people who were slaughtered for their beliefs, and became crowned saints. When
someone is made a martyr their spirit is given an enormous amount of
authoritative and spiritual power. Their shed blood is a witness to the Glory
of God, and to the quality and character of their own soul.
a race of beings akin to angels but tied to one or more of
the four basic elements of nature; water, air, earth, and fire. They are
spiritual beings who can but seldom do, take even more physical form then the
angels. They are the angels of nature so to speak.
power aids given to us by God that help us on the energetic, mental, emotional,
spiritual, and imaginative levels. These include stones, animals, spiritual
animals, “mythological creatures”, and plants (plants, spiritual plants, herbs,
flowers, and trees). These aids are like personal angels in their functions.
Some people call carvings of their spirit animal totems, but they are also
called fetishes traditionally. Hair charms and similar charms are also called
fetishes, as are rabbits feet and other like objects. Then there are totem
poles which tell tribal history and stories in the form of carvings and sculpture.
these are spirits that God gave us to help guide us like
personal angels. We have childhood spiritual guides, and then usually around
puberty we are given the spirit guides that typically stay with us for the rest
of our lives.
these are spirits and beings that God sends us throughout
our lives and in our dreams, that teach us the things we need to know. Most
people are unaware of all of their spiritual aids.
these are beings who are in between the spirit teachers and
the ascended masters in the wisdom, power, and authority. They help guide us in
the use of God’s healing energies and power. They wield the Reiki with great
force, and precision. They help people learning healing traditions learn.
these are literally our physical or our spiritual
ancestors. Physical ancestors is a term that is self explanatory. They are also
called the ancients. These are the people we descend from or have been adopted
by in some cases. Then there are our spiritual ancestors. If we belong to a
certain spiritual or religious tradition then these are the people who came and
went before us in those traditions. Two terms that coincide with these two
types of ancestors are bloodline or (Family-Line in case of adoptions), and
spirit-line. Artistic Hero’s could also be counted as spiritual ancestors if
they are dead, and whether they are living or dead they could be considered
part of ones Spirit-Line.
In later volumes I will post about My Celtic Cosmology I
will write about what spiritual meanings certain words and phrases have for me
as opposed to what they mean literally or historically; as well as adding some
more important words and phrases and what they mean in my tradition.
