Colette O'Neill, creative force at Bealtaine Cottage… Ireland's Sustainable Living, Permaculture Lifestyle Practitioner, celebrating 12 yrs growing a sustainable sanctuary for Mother Earth, with magical gardens powered by Goddess-inspired Permaculture. Mother Earth can live without us. We cannot live apart from Her. It's time to nurture and care for our only home.
Brigid was also a Celtic Goddess, who was venerated for protection of the home from fire.
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.
There is a Brigid in all who nurture compassion, hope, love and life.
These are aspects of the Divine Feminine and this is the Age of the Awakening of the Divine Feminine in all of humanity.
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.
I 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.
This is the beginning of the expansion of the Collective Consciousness.
Where once there was solitary repulsion towards what was wrong, there is now a growing movement of outrage.
This 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.
Often I think we are slowly emerging from the Dark Ages of Greed, Ignorance and Arrogance.
We are all sacred beings on a journey towards the Divine.
