Wishing you all blessings on this beautiful day of Imbolc! Today marks our return from winter to spring and in Ireland is a day we dedicate to the mother goddess Brigid (Saint Brigid to those of the Catholic faith).*
Brigid, among other things, represents the light half of the year- she is the radiant light that brings us from the darkness of autumn and winter into the light of spring and summer. The light that is vital to our survival here on earth.
Today is a day to acknowledge and give gratitude to that essential spark within and around us all.
I have been finding the energy of the past few days in the run up to the Super Blood Blue Moon and Lunar Eclipse yesterday, and now Imbolc, intense! The best way I can think to put it is: I have been feeling firey!
This is perfectly in flow with the arrival of Imbolc and this inner fire is a powerful tool we all have. Acknowledging and honouring that fire can ignite us to huge and rapid change. If we do not spend time tending to our emotional world however, it can also get hugely out of control. Self-responsibility, self-kindness and compassion are key!
If you are feeling the need to ‘push’, when now is a time for rest, take the time to ask yourself why.
There is no force, push or coercion in natural growth. Everything has its timing.
The light of spring is arriving but we are still moving through the dream state of winter. Remember to respect what it is you truly need and try not to push yourself to make rash decisions, or impose needless deadlines, or to convince yourself that any push you are doing is justified. Instead, be in flow. The light of spring will naturally take you from the restful state into that of action.
If you are looking to honour the energy of the day, make some time for self. Tune into the mothering aspect of Brigid and mother yourself. Hold yourself in and with love.
These are a few suggestions for practices that you could do:
However you choose to engage with the energy today, I hope you have a beautiful one.
With love and light,
