Sexuality & Pleasure are Tools of Enlightenment

Sexuality encompasses more than just sex. It is a positive expression of prana energy that connects us to our personal power, desires, drive, and creativity. Sexual energy is interlinked with the conceiving power of the universe  it brings forth life in all forms. All human life has incarnated through a sexual exchange. The power that birthed us also flows through us, so that we can create and cultivate our goals and manifestations in the world.  

 

For these last few centuries, sex has become a taboo topic, viewed by many as a shameful, sinful, dirty, and embarrassing act. These misconstructions have led us to detach from our sexuality and disconnect from our inner sacredness and divinity. 

 

We need to reconnect with our sexual energy opening, freely, and non-judgmentally. When we explore the depths of our bodies and release the trauma, emotional wounding, and cultural conditionings that reside internally, we will re-establish the free flow of life force energy within us. 

 

Sexual Transmutation

 

The vital sexual essence contains high concentrations of life force energy and when harnessed and transmuted, it produces immense healing for our physical health, mental capacity, and spiritual development.

 

Our sexual energy is always oscillating, but since most of us are detached from it, we inadvertently direct this force into negative outcomes. We must learn how to wield this potent energy consciously so that we can experience more zest and joy in all aspects of our life. 

 

Sexual energy is akin to creative energy  it fuels passion, imagination, and inspiration within us, and when cultivated and properly channeled, this motivating force can become our superpower. When we attune to this vital life force, we can direct the energy upwards throughout our energy centers and outwards into the universe through our creative purists, passion projects, and healthy sexual relationships. 

 

Establishing Boundaries 

 

Sex is a sacred energy exchange that connects us to the highest creative and healing power in the universe. When you master sexual energy with your partner through the compassionate, unconditional exchange of love, together you will unleash one of the most powerful forces out into the world. 

 

We must pay attention with whom we share this intimate and potent energy with. During sex, the aural energy between two people is entwined. Your partners thoughts, feelings, pleasures, and desires will leave an impression on your aura unless you establish proper energetic boundaries before and after this exchange. 

 

Setting up a boundary around your body and within your intimate relationships will protect you from absorbing the energy of your partner and everyone else your partner has had sex with prior to you. To establish an energetic boundary, visualize a white light shield surrounding your auric body, protecting you from all eternal energy. Reapply this white layer each time you are intimate with someone (especially with new or casual partners) to ensure continuous protection, strength, and purification. After sex, you must practice auric and spiritual cleansing techniques to avoid energetic debris from lingering in your personal field and space.

Black Her-Story: The Sybils

The Sibyls were lastly received as the oracles in Ancient Greece/Rome, however, their story predates these empires as they were all over the planet; from the Amazon, Asia Minor, Northern and Eastern Africa, and India were the Matriachals Mamas. These women were representatives of the Mama Universe and they were revered as Prophetess, Goddess, Priestess and the Daughters of Mami Wata (The Divine Cosmic Mother). These Daughters, sometimes referred as The Lulus were the mothers that seeded humanity and civilized them into tribes. The Patriarchal order have done well in attempting to erase or hide the truth, but the truth is hidden inside of the 0 blood type and it is out now.

According to Mama Zogbe, author of The Sybils: The First Prophetess’ of Mami Wata, the name “Sybil” is of mixed origin derived from the Ethiopian/Cushites as a title of sacred initiatory and term of endearment for Mami known as “Cybele”, (Cybella, Cybylle,Kybrle) loosely meaning Queen of Heaven; Mother of Gods.

In short, the Sybils, often referred by the Greeks as The Muses, were literally the “light of divine wisdom” and offered the world their gifts that specified in music, art, science, philosophy, law, astronomy, architecture, husbandry, and literature/language. The are even notated as the mother that seeded the diversity of humanity.

These ancient oracles were the priestesses and mystics that served their community by entering trance states as multidimensional mediums. They held many divine prophecies that would entail the cyclic fate of birth, maturation, death, and regeneration of societies and civilizations. These women guided the societal, economic, and political order of matriarchal societies. Because of their understanding of cycles, science, metaphysics and more, they were able to predict and outline the rise and fall of a patriarchal order. They understood the necessity for cycles of human destruction and rebuilding. They foretold of a sun/thunder god to eclipse the lunar goddesses (patriarchy usurping the matriarchy) where darkness will cover the face of the earth (rise of negative accumulation of karma) and the slaughter of the first Divine Calf and the rise of a new sun/thunder god from the depths to be acclaimed as “the holy one” to restore and liberate as a sacrifice .

This story or prophesy very well may have been about the changing of ages from Taurus to Pisces age, as it foretold of Annuki a fish deity would be sent to liberate and redirect the rebellion of the rising patriarchal order into its fall. And restore the reign of virtue and justice on earth. Some scholars claim that these Sybil prophecies were referring to either Buddha, Krishna, or Yeshua/Jesus Christ of myth and history.

Whatever the stories of these oracles, the Sybils were highly revered prior to their self foretold overthrowing. These women reignedfor centuries and ages in peace and harmony with nature and cosmic cycles. They spread their wisdom on all corners of the earth, from modern day Africa (ancient Kemet/Cush/Mizarim), India (Peloponnesus/Mesopotamia), Asia (Turkey/Ionia/Minoa), Europe (Mycenea/Delphi) and the Americas (Olmecs/Amazon). They were known all over the world as Queen Mothers, or titled as Queen Mother of Heaven. This time was known as The Golden Age.

Temples, altars, and shrines were erected in their honor all over the world. Many of these scared sites are of the “Seven Wonders of the World”. These sacred sites were maintained by the Sybils and a contingent of vestal “virgin” (not owned by a man) priestesses and eunuchs.

Persian Sibyl – was said to be a prophetic priestess presiding over the Apollonian Oracle, she is said to have foretold the exploits of Alexander the Great.

Libyan Sibyl – was prophetic priestess presiding over the ancient Zeus Amon oracle at the Siwa Oasis in the Western Desert of Egypt. The oracle here was consulted by Alexander after his conquest of Egypt.

Delphic Sibyl – was a legendary figure who gave prophecies in the sacred precinct of Apolloo at Delphi. The Delphic Sibyl was not the same as the Pythia, the priestess of Apollo who was also known as the Oracle of Delphi.

Cimmerian Sibyl – The Cimmerian Sibyl, by name Carmentis, was the prophetic priestess presiding over the Apollonian Oracle at Cimmerium in Italy, near Lake Avernus (i.e. Cumae).

Erythraean Sibyl – was sited at Erythrae, a town in Ionia. She is said to have predicted the Trojan War and prophesised to the Greeks who were moving against Ilium both that Troy would be destroyed and that Homer would write falsehoods.

Samian Sibyl – The Samian Sibyl was the priestess presiding over the Apollonian oracle near Hera’s temple on the Isle of Samos, a Greek colony.

Cumaean Sibyl – this was the sibyl that most concerned the Romans, located near the Greek city of Naples, whom Virgil’s Aeneas consults before this descent to the lower world. It was she who supposedly sold to Tarquinius Superbus, the last king of Rome, the original Sibylline books.

Hellespontine Sibyl – or the Trojan sibyl presided over the Apollonian oracle at Dardania. The sibylline collection at Gergis was attributed to the Hellespontine Sibyl and was preserved in the temple of Apollo at Gergis. Thence it passed to Erythrae, where it became famous.

Phrygian Sibyl – The Phrygian Sibyl appears to be a doublet of the Hellespontine Sibyl.

Tiburtine Sibyl – To the classical sibyls of the Greeks, the Romans added a tenth, the Tiburtine Sibyl, whose seat was the ancient Etruscan town of Tibur. An apocalyptic pseudo-prophecy exists, attributed to the Tiburtine Sibyl, written c. 380 CE, but with revisions and interpolations added at later dates. It purports to prophesy the advent of a final Emperor named Constans, vanquishing the foes of Christianity, bringing about a period of great wealth and peace, ending paganism and converting the Jews. After vanquishing Gog and Magog, the Emperor is said to resign his crown to God. This would give way to the Antichrist. Ippolito d’Este rebuilt the Villa d’Este at Tibur, the modern Tivoli, from 1550 onward, and commissioned elaborate fresco murals in the Villa that celebrate the Tiburtine Sibyl, as prophesying the birth of Christ to the classical world.

As Christianity gained in strength, the purpose of the Sibyls shifted. Many of them were withered martyred or went into hiding. It is believed that the Dogon Tribe and Pygmie Tribes, the oldest tribes of matriarch order, still old the truths and wisdom, along with prophesies of The Sybils. These mystic women origins and stories are growing in resonance as more women Strengthen their spiritual gifts and foresight.

I Talked to my Vagina, and this happened… – Divinely Kissed

Just like many women, I had been conditioned to not know my feminine power. It was bottled up and served to me as the “perfect, obedient daughter, then as either the “we don’t love these thots/whores/sluts” or the “virginal ever-giving wife/mother” and then to matriculate as the “unacknowledged bitter old lady or ever-

Alchemy of Smudging with White Sage

White Sage smudging-the burning of sage- has become a staple in my spiritual practice. I was first introduced to the practice of smudging during a home and energy cleanse by my Yayi (traditional healer). I knew myself to be an empathetic or highly sensitive person, yet did not have the full understanding that I was attracting other people and my surrounding environment’s energy. Unbeknownst to me, I was holding on to other people’s negativity and toxicity and bringing them into my new home. There were times when I would feel sad, troubled, or down right negative and not know why until my Yayi suggested I start  energy cleanses. I am a Virgo South Node, so I am a natural skeptic of many things, however, I trusted my Yayi’s suggestion and decided to learn more about the practice and alleged benefits.

Despite being lauded and consistently practiced by indigenous cultures for thousands of years, smudging has been met by mixed reception within modern society. Native Americans, as well as diverse Asian cultures, believed (and continue to believe) that the smoke from sage and other herbs is capable of cleaning “negative energy,” whether it’s occupying a space or being carried by a person.

At first glance, this may sound like nothing more than a “woo-woo” concept, but it shouldn’t be dismissed too quickly. In this post I am sharing what I learned of smudging and how it has benefited me in my practice.

What are Ions

Ions are all around you right now and, whether you are aware of them or not, there is a good chance they are affecting the way you feel and quite possibly your health as well.

So what is an ion? An ion is a molecule that has lost or gained an electron through various atmospheric forces or environmental influences.

There are both positive and negative ions but, as we shall see, the definitions of ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ are misleading in terms of their health effects.

A simple definition of a positive ion is an electrically charged atom, or group of atoms, formed by the loss of one or more electrons. The number of protons does not change but the reduction in electrons gives the atom a positive charge.

Positive ions in the air are usually carbon dioxide molecules that have been stripped of an electron. Also known as positively charged ions or cations, they have been demonstrated to have a negative effect on your body when you are exposed to them in excess.

This is particularly the case with your lungs and respiratory tract but your immune system can also be affected. This is because positive ions are so small they are absorbed directly into your bloodstream from the air you breathe.

What Are Negative Ions?

The definition of a negative ion is an electrically charged atom, or cluster of atoms, formed by gaining one or more electrons. The number of protons in the atom does not change but the extra electrons gives it a negative charge.

Negatively charged ions, also known scientifically as anions, are the opposite of positive ions and they have directly the opposite effect on your health, mood and energy levels when you are exposed to them.

Negative ions in the air have a strong negative charge. Due to this nature, they are statically attracted to airborne particles like dust, mold spores, pet dander and other floating pollutants and potential allergens.

By attaching to these pollutants and allergens they give them a negative charge and, rather than drifting in the air, they are grounded and fall to the floor or nearest surface.

Even bacteria and viruses circling in the air of your home can be cleared by negatively charged ions attaching to them and removing them from the air your breathe.

Medical and scientific researchers do not use terms like “negative energy”, however, they are confirming the cleansing properties of smudging. A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology demonstrated that the smoke from burning sage -what the authors of the study call “medicinal smoke”- is able “to completely eliminate diverse plant and human pathogenic bacteria of the air within confined space.[1]

From a scientific perspective, medicinal smoke is believed to release negative ions which bind to positively ionized particles like bacteria, viruses, mold spores, pet dander and other allergens, dust, and other hazardous particulates.  I would like to add here that indigenous cultures attempt to explain this negative ion phenomena through non-physical explanations that appeals to spiritual mythologies. I love myths and story-telling that can be tied or expounded upon by the facts of science.

The Scientific and Alchemical Benefit of Smudging

Kills Bacteria and Germs. The same study quoted above discusses the remarkable ability of sage as a tool for clearing bacteria and other pathogens from the respiratory tract and skin as a pulmonary and dermatological antimicrobial agent. For this reason, I smudge as a way to clear pathogens from the air in my home and surroundings.

Natural antidepressant. The negative ions present in medicinal smoke has another fascinating benefit: it balances mood and dispels depression (as well or better than pharmaceutical antidepressants, according to some data).[2]

A research engineer named Dr. Clarence Hansell first stumbled upon the benefits of negative ions in the 1930s. The negative-ion-charged air that some of his equipment produced led to such a dramatic mood boost in his coworkers that he decided to investigate further. A study in 1976 demonstrated that negative ions can balance levels of serotonin, which we now know has at least an indirect effect on the maintenance of mood and energy levels. The study cited above followed in the 1990s, and now negative ion therapy is finally gaining traction as a treatment modality for depression.

Improved sleep and performance. Due to its ability to modulate serotonin, the negative air ions (NAI) in smudging smoke provide a range of other benefits, as well. In 2013, a team of Italian researchers sought to delve deeper into the positive effects of NAI. Their analysis confirmed that NAI treatment works on par with antidepressants for mood disorders, and also observed that negative ions balance sleep patterns, promote restfulness, and improve physical performance.[3]

How do you cleanse your house with white sage?

Smudging-with-Sage

I prefer to cleanse my home weekly on Sundays, which is also the day associated to Archangel Michael. I begin the day by cleaning the interior of my home. Upon completing the physical cleaning and organization of my home, I welcome Archangel Micheal and his healing and protective energy into my home, as well as a sense of gratitude for all that I have and soon to gain. I then proceed to burn the sage leaves, giving thanks to the leaves for her healing properties, to me, this act of gratitude is received by the spirit of the white sage as she discharges its energy of clearing and protection in the air around me and onto the items I intend to clear or cleanse. 

As the smoke transfers through the area or over an item, the smoke joins itself to any thick, negative energy that is inside the object, space or being. When the smoke is cleared, the spirit of this plant transports the negative energy back to the spiritual light, and leaves my space or the items cleared.

Immediately after clearing, I welcome the energy or frequency of Love, Discernment, Abundance, Joy, and whatever high vibration energy  to fill the spaces that were cleared. For me, this is the alchemical process of transferring a negative into neutral to a positive.

P.S. White sage is wonderful, but it’s not the only option when it Spiritual Cleansing Sessionscomes to smudging and energetically clearing your home! Cedar, wild sage, palo santo-another staple of mine-, juniper, sandalwood, and others are wonderful choices to cleanse, purify and raise the vibration of your home, objects, or even yourself!

Or if you don’t enjoy the smoke from sage smudging… Essential Oils are a wonderful way to cleanse and uplift the energy of your home as well!

Faith Is A Full Time Job

This week we are talking all about living out our life purpose and this has brought up the topic of Faith and it’s a full time Job! This is a very important subject that I have been working through as well. And what I am learning as a student of life and the Divine is that we, more so I, have to STOP over complicating things and learn how to overcome making life more difficult. Because the truth is success, life purpose, or whatever we are striving to achieve is quite simple and very seamless. 

I can remember when I was looking to reapply to a major university for the second time. I applied while in high school and was denied due to a lack of science credits that the university required. I was so determined to get in that I enrolled at my local technical college to take some extra credit sciences. I took so many science classes that year, I just knew I was going to get an acceptance letter. So I applied again, and this time I was accepted under conditions! What?!? I did exactly what they wanted, I gathered extra science credits to only realize that was the requirement for incoming freshmen not transfer students. It felt like I wasted so much time because I was too focused on doing the most to prove “I’m worthy” rather placing faith in what was needed and what I could do to get it. Looking back I realized that I was insecure in my ability to get accepted to a major university and tried to overcompensate my self esteem by doing more than what’s required or even necessary. 

That pattern didn’t just show up there, I also, in hindsight, recognized how I had the same mindset pattern as it pertained to my relationship with loved ones and friendship circles. My insecurities was my driving force, not my genuine desire for connection; although I did have a genuine desire, my actions were muddied with insecurity. That experience led me into a deeper dive as to why belief in self is the most important mindset to have. And that’s where I discovered that faith is a sport that we must train and build up. And in order for me to believe, I had to be clear with my own intentions and how I was going to engage with it.

For me, and many others, faith was a struggle because I like to focus on hard facts and evidence, emphasis on evidence based results and research. So much so, that if I did not see the tangibles, it was very difficult for me to trust in it or believe in myself to achieve it. In some ways that mindset served me well, however, it was also a stumbling block for living a more ease and stress reducing life. I constantly doubted myself and felt I needed to show up as the ideal rather than my authentic self expression. I was managing myself to be what my thought processes believed be and it was draining the life force out of me. 

So how did I train to develop stronger faith? It started with me taking audit of my daily thought patterns. I use to suffer from terrible anxiety attacks, and what I found was many of the thoughts that triggered anxiety were not necessarily my own authentic thoughts. These were from other people or programs I picked up over the years that I had internalized as my own. That took time to dissect before coming to that realization, but I got there! Everyday I would take notice of any thoughts that would trigger me emotionally and/or physically and was not in alignment with my desires outcome, it was given an eviction notice. 

That simple mindset change led me to focus more on the feeling of what I was striving to accomplish rather than the monkey mind chaos of fear, doubt, and worry. It was a commitment to have a different experience with life. They say to have something you never had, you must do something you never done. And taking audit and account of my thoughts was what I never done before and it has warranted me some of my greatest lessons and experiences! 

What is one step that you are going to take to build faith in your life? What areas of your life needs more awareness and compassion? I would love to hear from you in the comments section!

Mother Maya & The Crate Challenge

This Crate Challenge has taken the internet by storm! The interesting parallels of this challenge is that the videos that are the most viral are the ones of the people who “failed” the challenge. What is being messaged here? And where did all these crates come from?!? 😭😂

It’s not odd that as we are in Virgo season, time of purification and discernment, that this was brought to our news feeds. I want to share this photo to help us better discern what is being shown here and why is it that only the “fails” are going viral. On a surface level, we can argue that we humans find slapstick humor entertaining. However, If you’re a student of the occult, hidden knowledge, then you know nothing is what it seems to appear. I’ll ask you to examine these two photos and come to your own conclusion as to what is being said.

If failing/falling is viral during a virus pandemic, then who/what is failing and who/what is rising, if at all? 🤔
Please let me know what you think or are intuiting!

She a Fool’s Gold Digger

Raw Crystals and Gems 💎

It’s been almost a week since Self Realization of a Goddess Retreat and I’m still riding on my Goddess cloud high. It’s becoming a way of life at this point!

I am excited to share with you another realization that came for me during my trip. I have been aware for some time that I can be prone to anxiety. As I have learned more, and still learning, about the mind-body connection, I’ve been making a conscientious effort to keep my nerves anxiety free by creating a beautiful and peaceful living and work environment. So this retreat was a much needed break-away for a breakthrough.

The day after we went zip lining, we set our sights to crystal digging. Thinking that we will be submerged in dirt, I found my best worst clothes to get dirty in. When we arrived, we realized that we would not be going inside a cave, rather we would be given pails full of dirt where we would have to sift through it to find the crystals and gemstones. Slightly disappointed that I would not be knee deep in dirt, with a helmet, like the eighth dwarf of Snow White’s crew, I grabbed a pail and began sifting.

Surprisingly, the experience was quite soothing and relaxing as we scooped the dirt from the pail, and sieved for crystals in the running water. I found amethysts, rose quarts, emeralds, tourmaline, quartz, fools gold, and a rare geode. What realization that came to me in this experience was me digging myself out of a grave to rescue my hidden gems. Each gem spoke to me and told the story of how taking charge and owning my authority will free me.

These gems were in their raw and unfiltered form and reminded me that I am valuable even in my rawest form when I show up firmly rooted and grounded in myself. In my self reflection, I discovered that in honoring my sensitivity along with my inner authority, I didn’t have to sacrifice sensitivity with forcefulness to be authoritative. Each gem owned itself, it took up its space unapologetically, without competition.

This too was my experience with each Goddess that attended on the retreat. We all took up space, with out stepping on each other’s boundaries, or competing with each other. The entire experience was in the honoring of ourself and each other; and this made the journey receptive, fun, and harmonious.

I felt a purification with each gem that I gathered. I released judgment that I wasn’t polished or as refined as I believed I “needed” to be. I was fully and completely accepting of myself. I felt revived in the areas of my life that felt docile or dead in; I found an opportunity to restore life in those areas and revive those parts of me. The Messiah in Me called out the Lazarus in Me to Come Forth. This was where I once placed value on others’ perspectives and beliefs of me, particularly in people who didn’t care for me, could no longer abide in my re-emergence. The rules and restrictions that I once felt obligated to live out fell off of me in those moments by moments of realization while digging and sieving.

A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.”- Jim Morrison

Let me see you Walk…


In releasing judgement, I am more receptive to welcoming people in my life who will not “punish” me for being true to myself. The spiritual warrior within arose and I allow her to lead the way to help identify, dismantle and destroy all habits and beliefs that no longer serve a positive purpose in my life and world. I’m in compete and total trust that I have attracted a tribe, and enjoying every step of the unfolding.

In this unfolding I have learned when I stand in my authentic and truthful self, I carry my weigh in gold, rubies, and emeralds. The more I stand in my most truthful, assertive, compassionate, and unadulterated self, the more loving and healthy my experiences become.

How do you choose to show up and take up space? Where within are you needing to revive at what once seemed dead? Lastly, how did you learn to allow your truth and authentic self be asserted? I look forward to hearing from you!

Left a Queen and Returned a Goddess

Self Realization of a Goddess Retreat 2021

Last week I set my sights on escaping my current reality and retreating in the mountains of Georgia with a group of women that I have never met but was in a 13-week course by Rev. Kimesha of BlaqFire Nation, Self Realization of a Goddess.

I didn’t think I was going to make this retreat, because I was sick earlier in the week, my daughter was coming off the tail end of being sick, and like clockwork, a close family member attempted to pick a fight with me the day before I was set to leave- this seems to be a negative pattern that I experience with this person, but more on that later. There was so much energetic pushback, that I knew there was something that needed to be released; so I prevailed and went anyway.

I am so glad that I did! Although this was my first time meeting Kimesha, BlaqFire and the other women; I didn’t know what to expect, but I did remain open to what God/dess wanted for me to receive. The whole trip was the most relaxing, fun, and insightful experience that I had in a long time, with complete strangers! We came in as strangers and left as Sisters of a secret order LOL!

What came up for me was unveiling the root of this toxic pattern in my relationship with my family. I had developed an inability to trust myself and be free in my expression; not because I didn’t like myself, but because I learned to minimize myself so that I could “feel safe” to be around people who didn’t care for me or about me. That was such a freeing realization. And unbeknownst to me, I freed myself from that pattern when I stood my ground on a boundary that was important for my safety and emotional/mental well-being.

The following day we went to a zip lining course. I have never zip lined before and frankly I don’t care for heights. Our guides were Jacob and Gabe. Jacob means to circumvent, supplant, and assail. Gabe means God’s able bodied one or Hero of God. I was terrified and almost backed out of going on the zip line cord. Kimesha reminded us that we are here to choose faith over fear, and completing this ritual, zip lining, would represent that. Understanding symbolism, I took the leap and went forward. It was NOT fun at all, but I did accomplish conquering or supplanting Fear with Faith and became the Hero that God called me to be for me! I showed up! I was peer pressured after all 😂- just kidding…

Me regretting my life choices…lol

Prior to this trip, I did stand up for myself: I showed up for myself when I left my corporate job, I stood up for myself when I stood my ground against a sexual predator, and when I did not cave in to the emotional/mental abuse that a family member tried to place on me the day before my trip. All my experiences was ritualized in the simple act of completing a 7-course zip line. I proved to myself that I am worthy of devotion, commitment, and loyalty. I revealed to myself that I am an able body of God that deserved to be cared for and loved on, without pretense.

As my Goddess sister Marla’s coworker exclaimed before she came to the retreat, she will leave a Queen and return as a Goddess! That was what this retreat ritualized for me, an entering and enabling of my own Goddess-ship and the gaining of sisters. I supplanted fear with belief and faith and rose up abled to be my Own Hero. There is so much more I will be sharing about my trip… so far this was just Day One! Stay tuned for more realization!

Black Her Story Month: Goddess Brigid

February 1st is the Start of Black History and what a wonderful way to commemorate by Honoring The Goddess Brigid on her Feast Day of Imoblc. 

February 1st is the Irish tradition in both religious and mythological remembrance of Goddess Brigid by the pagans and St. Brigid by religious tradition. This Feast day is known as Imbolc which is in honor of Brigid, the Goddess of Muur Celts, who was later to be bestowed as a Saint by the Catholic Church. She is attributed as the elevated or exalted one. She in her ancient representation is that of a Black Woman or Moorish Celtic  

In mythological texts, Goddess Brigid is the keeper of the eternal flame, which represents the essence of an inner dawn. She is the halfway of light and darkness. This is why her feast day is half way between winter and spring solstices. 

It is said in ancient texts that at the moment between dusk and daybreak, Brigid arose into the sky with flames like rays of the sun blazing in her hair.

In Ireland, you can find a shrine near Kildare that is sacred to the druids for it is believed to have been the a place where Brigid’s priestesses tended to her eternal flame. The Priestesses were taught the healing properties of ancient practices that associate to Brigid. She is the keeper of all things sacred, elevated wisdom, and higher states of consciousness. 

In 480 CE, Saint Brigid, who is believed to be the human incarnate of the Goddess, built a monastery in honor of her and consecrated it as a center of women’s religious learning and spiritual instruction to elevated consciousness. Saint Brigid is credited with organizing communal religious rites for women and later revered for founding the development of religious learning into a cathedral city. 

Her message, whether as the Goddess or Saint, is to remind us to reconnect to our inner fire where our soul yearns to sprout forth. She reminds us to create sacred space within our home and bodies that allows full soul presence. 

Brigid reminds us that there are always bridges between darkness and light; and that we are never alone in our journey of soul maturation. With each dark time comes dawn, reminding us that our light never leaves us and with each new day is bound to be brighter and fuller because we traveled through.
