Has anybody experience with, knowledge about or otherwise sane comments on the use of Finn's window. I understand it can be used as a divination help and as a meditative aid, But the comments are contradictory and vague. So much obliged if someone has better sources.

Thanks
Bart

There seems to be very little info on it, although I did find this...http://www.danuforest.co.uk/ogham_14.html

Thank you Heddwen.

There are some more elaborate describtion out there. It appears you can use the layers as a mean of meditation to go into the deeper layers of reality. The last ogham rune would than be reincarnation. But I am trying to figure out if there is more substance to it, other than personal describtions (can be very usefull, but in this case they differ.)

Other use is to use the different colloms as compas directions, each group can than be used in divination. North-earth would than have 5 layers going from the mundain to the spiritual.

Ah well better keep searching.

It is doubtful that the speculative ideas of the 'Lebor Ogaim' have any provable link to druidism. They are (at best) a medieval foray into bardic lore mixed with contemporary ideas of magick - a typical subject of indulgence for the educated elites of the 14thC, and not necessarily 'old wisdom'.

You are probably right, but many of the tales we hold for ancient, are actually "modern". Since there is no written materials on real Druidism, we will have to do with less. Recronstructing is impossible, despite some beliefs. So we study the indulgences of the "old", as well as the magic of new.

Searles O'Dubhain (a key Druid in the Henge of Keltria - a more reconstructionist Order) covers it within his Ogham book / courses
