Imbolc

Imbolc Blessings!

Happy Imbolc! I cannot tell you how glad I am to see January in my rear view mirror. My Imbolc celebrations have been simple but satisfying. I put out a bowl to collect snow for my bottle of holy water, sadly it did not snow enough for me to really collect anything. I spent time tending to my plants and baking bread. I reorganized my kitchen and got rid of stuff I no longer need. I cleaned up my home and today I plan to do a house blessing. Thanks to Bridget I have experienced a big surge of creative energy! It feels good to have that flame reignited within me. This month is going to be very busy and stressful so I need all the help I can get.

How did you spend your Imbolc?

Imbolc Inspiration

I experienced a lovely Imbolc. It was a quiet snowy day here in Madison. The perfect day to stay in and focus on spirituality. I spent time writing in my book of shadows and refreshing my memory about Bridget. I was able to dedicate my hearth and spend some time communing with the goddess. Tonight I have lit a candle on my hearth and I plan to do that every night this month.

Imbolc

Today I am celebrating Imbolc. Over time, Imbolc has become one of my favorite turns of the wheel. I have really grown to appreciate Bridget because of her healing and inspiration qualities. Her connection to my primary deity makes it easy to integrate her into my work. Tonight I plan to do some hearth magick. I have not used our new fireplace for this purpose yet, and I was thinking tonight would be the perfect time. My plan is to use the entire month of February to focus on inspiration and healing.

This time of year is always hard for me. Although I have kept the SAD at bay, for the most part, I am still feeling rather dull. I need something to bring my shine back! Bridget is wonderful for igniting “the fire in the head.” As the “firey arrow” she cuts through the crud and straight into the heart of the issue. I’m hoping she will also help me heal up some wounds that have stuck around for too long.

Later I will post some photos of my work! I would enjoy hearing from you all about if you celebrate Imbolc and how.
