The Collective Consciousness of Hope

9 Jan

Brigid Cross  Bealtaine Cottage Shop on EtsyFebruary the 1st is the feast of Saint Brigid.

Brigid was also a Celtic Goddess, who was venerated for protection of the home from fire.

morning sun at Bealtaine Permaculture Cottage Ireland is full of spring wells named after the Goddess Brigid, who held sway over them.

The Spring Wells are often seen as a portal to the Otherworld and a source of wisdom and healing.

Governments are the trustees we elect…

They will only do what we allow them to… for we are many and they are few.

Empowerment rests within us.

This Awakening is speeding up through the medium of Social Media.

Rhubarb beds at Bealtaine Cottage Permaculture GardensI have observed the transformation of people, from being passive receivers of air-brushed, sanitized information through television, to actively engaging in exchanging information, comment and knowledge through shared social media on the internet.

Where once there was solitary repulsion towards what was wrong, there is now a growing movement of outrage.

Bealtaine CottageThis Imbolc I shall recall the legacy of Brigid.

There was a Christian Monastery built upon the sacred shrine of Brigid.

It went on to become known as a great European centre of learning and culture, that became instrumental in preserving the ancient learning and literature during the Dark Ages.

We are all sacred beings on a journey towards the Divine.

Change is happening.

Hope abounds.

    I teach ‘Believe Makes and Doubt Breaks’ something my grand taught me though I have coined the phrase. I believe in what you have written and doubt greed can win. All thanks to our ancestors who passed good forward when they could.

    There is a workshop I posted on this, somewhere in the archives. I shall have a look back in January to see if I can locate it and flag it up for you.
    Bless you

    Postscript
    Okay…I could not find the workshop on here, so searched Google and this is a simple set of instructions for you to follow. It is a fiddly job, but keep at it and it will come right!
    Good luck!
