Let me come to you
through the mists
through the fire
through the plants
through the deep flowing wells
with ideas
music beyond the tips of your ears.
let me move you
enliven you
stimulate you
till your perspective shifts
and your mind/body/spirit explodes
and you are left standing
in the wake of something that has been revealed. . .
and life feels very sweet.

BRIGID comes to ignite you with INSPIRATION. Are you feeling a lack of direction? motivation? energy? Has your path gone out of focus, your life become unclear? Are you yearning for something but can't quite put your finger on? It is time to nurture wholeness by taking in the sparkle and crackle of INSPIRATION. BRIGID says that a life without the fire of inspiration is a dull life indeed. She further counsels that by allowing INSPIRATION to nurture your life you become sharper, clearer and more energetic.


      Find a time and place when you will not be disturbed. Sit or lie comfortably with your back straight. When you feel ready, take a deep breath and release it with a sigh, letting go of all you need to let go of. Take another deep breathe and let it go with a hiss. Take a third deep breath and, as you release it, picture or sense a cave, a cave that you have visited before or one that exists only in your mind. When you are ready with your cave, take another deep breath and, as you release it, stand before the cave. Run your fingers against the wall of the cave. Smell the cave. The more you can bring your senses into this journey, the deeper your experience will be.
     The mouth of the cave is large and wide and you enter. Inside, the cave it is well lit and warm, and you find yourself going down down down, deeper and deeper and deeper. It is a pleasant and comfortable feeling to go down down down, deeper and deeper and deeper. There is a light at the end of the cave. You are at the threshold, the place where the cave ends and the Otherworld begins. Step out now into the Otherworld. Notice the dazzling sunlight, the freshness in the air, the vividness of all the colors.
     BRIGID is waiting for you beside the ancient stone well. You walk over to Her across the soft, spongy emerald grass. She tells you that She is happy to see you and glad that you have arrived. She asks you why you have come. You tell her you seek INSPIRATION. BRIGID asks you for a gift and you give it to her gladly. Then She rings you in a circle of fire and lights a fire in your crown chakra (top of your head). You feel a tingling and stimulating of that point and you feel an opening and an expansion in your energy.
     Your power to visualize clears and grows stronger. You feel inspired!
     It is time for you to say goodbye. You thank BRIGID. She tells you all you need to do to activate INSPIRATION is to visualize that flame at the top of your head. You turn and enter the cave. Now you are coming up up up, through the warm comfort of the cave, feeling relaxed, feeling energized, feeling refreshed. Up, up, up till you reach the entrance of the cave. Move outside the cave, take a deep breath, and as you slowly exhale you are now back in your body. Take another deep breath and when you exhale, if ready, you may open your eyes. Welcome back!

BRIGID, which means "bright" is a Celtic triple Goddess of fire: the fire of inspiration, smithcraft, poetry, healing and divination. Her inspiration was vital to the Bards (poets) who called upon her freely. Legend says that Brigid was born with a flame reaching out from the top of Her head, connecting Her with the universe. The new (Christian) and the old (pagan) BRIGID were merged into St. Brigid in A.D. 450. St. Brigid, daughter of a druid, was a goldsmith and healer. Nineteen priestesses/nuns guard her sacred fire in Kildare, Ireland. On the twentieth of each month it is said she appears and tends it Herself.
