Happy Brigid’s Day and Happy Imbolc! I am so tickled to bring to you the story of the Goddess Brigid as told by Amantha Murphy, Irish Shaman. Amantha dialed in this week from Ireland to share the story of Brigid and the traditions that are still alive in celebrating Her presence in the lives and souls of the people.
Tonight is the Eve of Brigid’s Day and the celebrations begin this evening as women lay out their cloaks and shawls onto the land to gather in the morning full of the dew of Brigid. Fires will be tended through the night to represent the Fire of Brigid and how She enlivens us all. People will gather to make a Brigid’s Cross to bring the blessings of the Goddess into their homes.
Listening to Amantha tell the amazing journey of Brigid from ancient Goddess to Christian Saint and how She still lives in the folk practices, in the land and in the hearts of the people is mesmerizing. My words cannot communicate it properly so I invite you to listen to the podcast below and listen to the story of the Goddess Brigid.
We would love for you to share your experiences of the Goddess Brigid and We Wish You a Blessed Imbolc and Brigid’s Day!
