Imbolc

Imbolc

Happy Imbolc! For those unfamiliar with this Pagan Holiday here is the overview:

Imbolc marks the middle of winter with the promise of spring. The Goddess manifests as Brigid and The Maiden.

Here is what you can do during Imbolc: Thoroughly clean your altar and/or temple room. Do a self purification rite with Elemental tools — cleanse your body with salt (Earth), your thoughts with incense (Air), your will with a candle flame (Fire), your emotions with water (Water), and your spiritual body with a healing crystal (Spirit). Bless candles that you will be using for rituals throughout the year. Invoke Brigid for creative inspiration. Take a Nature walk and look for the first signs of Spring. Reflect upon/reaffirm spiritual vows and commitments you have made.(source: https://www.circlesanctuary.org/index.php/celebrating-the-seasons/imbolc-lore-rituals)

Now that I am more in tune with my thoughts and feelings and how they align with the universe I find comfort knowing that although I am in the winter of my life, Spring is always around the corner. This isn’t Narnia…this is life and life is beautiful. I plan to spend a good portion of my evening resonating in the light of Imbolc.
