Happy Imbolc, friends.
We are midway through Winter and Spring is around the corner (much closer here in Texas). Now is the best time to cuddle close to family and to connect with the things that make you feel at home. Now is the time to learn patience (for those of us without it) and take your energy to heal and be healthy (as much as one can). The Wheel of Life continues to turn regardless of our wants and wishes so take a moment to visualize the goals ahead of you and plant each step firmly into the ground moving forward (metaphorically and literally for those able). Stay warm and keep light in your heart as the sun shines longer in the sky each day.
“May Brighid the Shining One bless this day.
May the Light of the Gatherer of Hope,
the Bringer of Springtime,
the Brightener of Seasons
be upon you as you set forth today.
Laughter of the running hours be yours,
and with the leave of lightness, may you come home in joy.”
If you’re looking for an answer to something, maybe you’ll find it in the flames of a fire tonight. Tonight is Brighid’s night, Keeper of the Flames and Goddess of the Hearth. She’s guide to home and heart. She may have what you’re looking for. Think of her as the night fades and the sun rises to warm the world around you.
