Power in the darkness – Magic to prepare for spring…
Today we are celebrating Imbolc, keeping the faith in the anticipation of the coming spring, which marks the emergence from darkness into the light of the sun.
Imbolc falls into the winter season and sometimes we forget or become lost in it. The green mantle will soon return, but for now: it’s ok to sleep more, to say no, to go slowly and strangely, to go into a deep incubative mode, to contemplate the steam motes billowing off your mug, making outlines of spirits we commune with who tell us secrets, to trace lines of fern frost in your window, dive deeply into the dream space, sometimes it requires that we retreat, to recover the light inside us.
We celebrate Imbolc as a earth element. It reminds us of rest and regeneration and the incubation of ideas. Our focus rests on grounding, assessment, resting and recalibration, acceptance, finding out who we really are, rebirth, peace and total self acceptance.
Additional focus is brought to our sacral chakra.
