⊕Goddess Brigid ~ The Promise of Spring⊕

Inspiration:

Diving into the Goddesses and becoming more acquainted with them is a passion of mine. This blog post is a celebration of Celtic Goddess Brigid through some background knowledge, a poetry devotional, and art imagery.

The images were originally a model photo session that I turned into art images  honoring Goddess Brigid. She presides over many areas and is associated with the spring season, fertility, healing, poetry, and blacksmithing.

Imbolc celebrated February 1st ~ is a Celtic tradition and festival celebrating the onset of spring and is associated with Goddess Brigid. This ties into her role as a fertility Goddess as well.

“On Imbolc Eve, Brigid was said to visit virtuous households and bless the inhabitants.”

IMBOLC

Season of Spring ~ Celebrated as Imbolc on February 1st

(sometimes celebrated February 2nd depending on the midway point from the winter solstice & spring equnox)

Blessed Imbolc ~ “in the belly of the Goddess”

Magical energy from the feminine attributes of the Goddess

*Imbolc ~ we begin to awaken from our winter slumber ~ the belly of Mother Earth begins to wiggle & shake off the winter ~ as the animals ~ plants ~  and trees begin to rise again from a winter dormancy ~ as we to begin again 🙂

One of the ways Imbolc is celebrated is by making Brigid’s Cross. Here is a video demonstrating step by step process.

*Through connecting with Imbolc we can recharge ourselves with the newness & freshness of the coming of Spring ~ we begin to see signs everywhere ~ within ourselves ~ new growth emerging upon the Earth ~ birds singing this in song ~ life springs forth once again ~ magic in our hearts & in the air. A rekindling and a new awakening ~ §The Magic of Brigid§

When to invoke Goddess Brigid

Invoke Goddess Brigid into your life when transformation is needed in any area of your life ~  where a new manifestation is desired. Peering into the symbolism of her many aspects we gain significant knowledge. For example Brigid presides over midwifery ~ this is also representative of a rebirth of the new within us ~ when the “old” is no longer integral to our evolution. Through her Sacred Flame our metamorphosis is birthed ~ her fiery flame burns & extinguishes that which needs to be disbanded from our core essence into sacred transfiguration. This fire aspect is also regarded as “Fire of Inspiration” as patroness of poetry. This divine spark of illumination  can also aid in creativity, innovation, originality ~ as Brigid will show you clever inventive approaches/ideas/methodologies to serve you in your endeavors.

Brigid is a Great Healer ~ call upon her for healing on any level (mental/emotional/spiritual/physical) ~ especially when looking for naturalistic herb plant based healing knowledge & direct impact for health. If you serve in the healing arts you may want to summon Brigid’s  healing energy magic as it transfers into patients, clients, etc…. Invoke Goddess Brigid as the Great Mother Goddess that she is ~ converse with her & share your thoughts & feelings with her & receive lightning wisdom & decoding.

You can focus in on developing & or further developing your magical gifts, abilities, & insights. Ask Brigid to assist you in getting to know yourself as your magical self.

With Brigid’s association with fertility & childbirth ~ you may connect in with Her for yourself or another in the physical domain of pregnancy ~ getting pregnant ~ healthy pregnancy ~ & childbirth blessings.

Brigid is also associated with the Earth & the element of water. Through out Ireland there are many sacred wells devoted to her. Water being a integral & vital element to both our bodies & the Earth. Some symbolic water references can be inclusive of concepts & ideas related to living water, sacred springs, flow of the divine, water as both nourishing & purifying ~ water can also represent the subconscious & heightened divine powers.
