The Spirit of Understanding

Vezot Haberachah

וִיהוֹשֻׁעַ בִּן-נוּן, מָלֵא רוּחַ חָכְמָה
And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom ... Devarim 34:9


וְהַנָּחָשׁ, הָיָה עָרוּם, מִכֹּל חַיַּת הַשָּׂדֶה
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field ... Bereshit 3:1


וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, הֵן עַם אֶחָד וְשָׂפָה אַחַת לְכֻלָּם, וְזֶה, הַחִלָּם לַעֲשׂוֹת; וְעַתָּה לֹא-יִבָּצֵר מֵהֶם, כֹּל אֲשֶׁר יָזְמוּ לַעֲשׂוֹת.

הָבָה, נֵרְדָה, וְנָבְלָה שָׁם, שְׂפָתָם--אֲשֶׁר לֹא יִשְׁמְעוּ, אִישׁ שְׂפַת רֵעֵהוּ.

וַיָּפֶץ יְהוָה אֹתָם מִשָּׁם, עַל-פְּנֵי כָל-הָאָרֶץ

And the LORD said: 'Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language ...

Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they MAY NOT UNDERSTAND/HEAR one another's speech.'

So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth ...
Bereshit 11:6-8

The LADY foils the LORD again. Understand that a multitude of languages cannot destroy true Oonagh, Achdut, Unity.

"From the shadows emerges the chosen One ... Three Stones, three young girls. One will discover the Gift ... Of three Stones only One fate will remain." [The Prophecy of the Stones, written by 13-year old author Flavia Bujor and translated from French into English and then into 30 other languages.]

"I have to discuss how important the element of Understanding is. It is fine to begin the ascent into internal transformation, but without Understanding, none of this [the foundational techniques of trance work] is useful. All of the trance techniques in the world, and all of the capabilities in the world will mean nothing without Understanding ... You have to Understand that reality is One, whole, and undivided. Human minds chop it into a billion pieces, abstract parts of it away from the wholeness of Nature, and label those various 'parts' as different 'things' - but it is still One." [Robin Artisson, The Witching Way of the Hollow Hill]

"Shema (hear)... the Divine is One." [Deutereonomy 6:4]

OONAGH Celtic Spirit Witch's Altar Ladder / Silk Sari UNITY Handfasting Cord:

OONAGH is a feminine name and expression used in Gaelic and Irish Gaelic meaning "One." An equivalent expression in English is "Unity" and in Hebrew is "Achdut." OONAGH, Unity and Achdut all pertain to the idea of mystical harmony, peace and the magical communion shared among members of a collective Folk Soul (or Folk Spirit) which permeates time and eternity. It is time-bound with Reality, yet timeless and unbound by time in timeless Being. It is the collective Divine Ancestor of which all Kindred partake whether Ancient of Days, of the Present or of the Future. Past, present and future are One in OONAGH.

Handcrafted under the crescent Moon of Might, OONAGH is made with 4 strands - handmade Blue Fire silk sari ribbon, dark multicolored Mystery boucle yarn handspun on a Kromski Sonata spinning wheel, pale blue sparkle ribbon, black satiny ribbon, 9 handmade jet black glass round beads, 25 knots, a sterling silver OONAGH symbol Celtic Knot leaf charm, a pewter and black scrying mirror connector bead and a pewter pentacle key charm. Each end of the cord is adorned with a removable pale blue ribbon bow.

The 4 strands correspond to the past, the present, the future and to Understanding (and in parallel, there is one strand for each of the 4 Greater Sabbats of Witchcraft - for in them is the mystical secret of the fusion of the stones).

The key to the quest for Understanding is Clarity (Witch Sight); where the quest is protected by the pentacle of Goddess.

Nine is the diameter of the witch's sacred circle.

Twenty-five is the number of Ogham letters in the magical Celtic alphabet.

This amazing cord measures 61 inches, where 61 is the gematria-numerology of the magical Hebrew words: אני (I Am), אין (unified No-Thing state of Divine Being), בטן (womb), and הבדים (the staves - as are the Ogham letters inscribed on staves).

Comes beautifully packaged with a small surprise gift included.

This mystically magical cord of Unity may be purchased at WITCHCRAFTS by Liorah Lleucu.
