Review: ‘Brigid: Meeting the Goddess of Poetry, Forge and Healing Well’ by Morgan Daimler

From Peneverdant

Brigid by Morgan DaimlerBrigid: Meeting the Goddess of Poetry, Forge and Healing Well is an introduction to the multi-faceted Celtic goddess, Brigid, by Irish Polytheist Morgan Daimler. In this book, Morgan traces the threads of the ‘enormous, brightly coloured tapestry’ that gives form to Brigid in the twenty-first century to their original sources.

Morgan centres on the well-known Irish depiction of Brigid as three sisters in the 14th C Sanas Cormac: ‘Brigid of the Poets, Brigid of the Forge, Brigid the Healer’. She introduces Brigid’s earliest representations as the daughter of the Dagda and member of the Tuatha dé Danann in The Caith Maige Tuired and Lebor Gabala Erenn. Lesser know Brigids from the Ulster Cycle: Brigid the Hospitaller, Brigid of the Judgements and Brigid the Cowless are also introduced.

A chapter focuses on Brigid by other names: the Gaulish Brigandu, British Brigantia, Scottish Bride, Welsh Ffraid and Saint Brigid…

  1. Salutations kid’s, I’ve come to share one my many near death experiences, for it’s the one I’m still in awe and confusion. Yes, I’m aware of stating my many N.D.E ,’s above yet, NDE would be inaccurate for the doctors’ declared me clinically dead, let’s see total 10 times, so maybe you kids can help me out or maybe you do the same, yay. My first death was upon my birth, May 1rst 1970, do to insufficient low quality of oxygen, clinically dead 3 minutes yet upon receiving pure high levels, I soon joined my twin brother amongst the other’s. Then again November 1rst 1977 this time by fire from gas explosion, clinically dead 4 minutes, then again in May 1984, by silly dare fire water, then again end of October 1991, via seeing phantom on left side, again in ending of October 1998, then again May, 2005 strep throat, ext November,2012 pnumonia, ext
    bringing us to May 5th, and 6th clinically declared dead 3 times of 2013 diagnosed with 13 deadly diagnosis, yup every 7 years oddly ok let’s speed story up and get to what I wished to share, ok so in 2013, I hung out with a giant legless spider ,whom I shared telepathic conversation of language unknown to me but hey we understood each other, now I’d pass in and out of body but orange and violet bursts, into my hospital room trying to convey to all hey I’m here, get this life support shit out of me, then back to spider back and forth crazy, knowing doctor’s weren’t listening, fuck it, I’ll kick it with the spider until awareness of others occurre, until then I was literally face to face communicating with this giant spider, big eyes, big fangs,no legs, tripping out how close the proximity truly was, anyhow time went on as we chatted, then a big white moth appeared and laid down willingly, beneath the spider’s fangs. I watched as the fangs filled with blood, then the spider began to spin it’s thread, then welp I woke up in my body, a doctor looked confused at me then rushed to take out life support, so I’m hoping the 13 deadly diagnosis broke my successions of every 7 years cause lol 2019 comes being my 11th succession of 7 years on planet Earth, PS yes each time I’ve been declared dead, I’ve gone to totally different places not one was ever the same experience.
