I’m not very good at celebrating this particular Sabbat even though it means a great deal to me. I was born on Imbolc, and since I’ve begun following the path I’ve chosen, I *know* it’s coming, I *know* it’s significance, I just can’t seem to figure out what I should do to honor this day. And I’ve found it’s also possible for this Sabbat to be easily swept aside because it’s not as exciting as Beltane, Samhain or Yule. I can always remember my birthday, why do I have such a difficult time honoring this Sabbat?
I still follow some of the Celtic teachings, and back in the early part of my new found spiritual journey, I made a point to at least light some candles in honor of Brighid. This morning while going through my Facebook Timeline and responding to the wishes for a Happy Birthday and Blessed Solar Return, I came across a simple candle ritual that jumped out and said, here…DO THIS! This will give you the foundation you need to honor Imbolc, while at the same time helping to achieve some of the things you’ve been looking for.
I follow Seasons In Avalon’s Facebook page and they always have some great information to share. I’m always excited when they post something, it’s always informative and I usually make use of their sharing. If you click on the link above you will be taken to their FB page and can find this simple but powerful Ritual…
Since Imbolc is a Fire Festival, candles are the centerpiece of the casting.
