Happy Imbolc, Brigid’s Day It’s time to welcome the return of spring & celebrate rebirth of nature & life. Brigid is the Goddess of Light, fire, birth, healing, regeneration, inspiration, poetry, art, music, fertility & love.
In the USA we celebrate groundhog day to welcome the spring. In other parts of the world February 2nd is also known as Imbolc Brigid’s Day. This is one of the four Celtic Fire Festivals that celebrates the change of season from winter to spring. Some traditions of Imbolc, Brigid’s Day include:
Honoring & celebrating the rebirth of nature & life (human, animals & plants). The word “Imbolc” actually refers to sheep’s milk the ewes, or female sheep that start to lactate during this time. Fire festivals, bonfires & fire dancing are still common celebrations today.
Additional traditions of Imbolc, Brigid’s Day that most of us naturally do getting prepared for the warmer months & natures natural flow of rebirth is SPRING CLEANING. Many people clean out their homes, rooms, cars & bodies. (Even spring cleaning has roots in celtic Paganism lol). Do you need to do any “spring cleaning”? Do you need motivation & someone to keep you accountable? If so, I can help you! check out my MT3 Program. I created a 30 day online course that gives you the tools to rejuvenate, sculpt & maintain your best healthy body, mind & spirit.
Imbolc, Brigid’s Day is also a popular day to start practicing your love energy (especially for yourself) From my experience, every time I focus on my health, fitness & self care, I immediately attract a partner, boyfriend, an awesome job opportunity, whatever i want into my life. (when you let go of desperately wanting/ needing someone / something in your life, they or it shows up).
Below are a few photo’s from when I visited one of Brigid’s Holy Well in Ireland. A funny story; When I was walking towards the well, I actually tripped on a string of my pants. I fell completely flat, face to the ground. This happened to me a few times during my trip. I believe it was a reminder for me to acknowledge, ask to enter & give thanks to any/every sacred site I enter.
