Brighid - Fiery Goddess, Saint and Druidess

Often associated with Spring and in particular the early Spring festival of Imbolc, there is also a fiery side to this seemingly passive Goddess.  Brighid is the patroness of metal workers and crafters of all kinds.  She is often pictured at her sacred forge where she rules over the art of smithcrafting, or she can be found around the hearth fire through which she brings the blessings of warmth and light into the home.
Brighid is also the Goddess of Creative Expression and as such, is the patroness of poets, writers and bards, lending grace and inspiration to all manner of creative writing.

Hidden Gems in the Experiences that we don't Understand

The following is from Madisyn Taylor of Daily Om.
All of the events in our lives lead to other events, they are all connected.
Sometimes we have an experience that we do not understand, but if we look deeply, or wait long enough, a reason for that experience will usually reveal itself. All the events in our lives lead to other events, and all that we have manifested in this present moment is the result of past events and experiences. We cannot easily tease apart the many threads that have been woven together to create our current reality.

Living In The Present Moment

The following is a wonderful post from Daily Om on how to stop being a victim and becoming a creator of your own life.  We have all heard it, but how often do we actually do it?  Present moment awareness is fundamental if we wish to evolve as human beings, for the present is the only place where we can truly connect with ourselves, with the inner experience of peace and fulfilment that I call “Love-Consciousness”.

A New Year with Exciting Events on Offer

This year, 2014, is the 432nd year of the Gregorian calendar has arrived and with it, the promise of fresh starts and exciting events, all under the influence of a new moon in the astrological sign of Capricorn that draws our attention back to assuring that we focus on our foundational work. As Bekah Finch Turner reminds us, any resolutions we make for this coming year, should reflect our "true" goals as opposed to the resolutions we make that subconsciousnessly we never mean to keep.

Great Goddess Isis

Great Goddess Isis

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
