IMBOLC is an ancient festival, one of the 4 great festivals of our ancestors celebrating the cycle of Life and Death: Imbolc, Pregnancy 1Feb, Bealtaine, New Life 1May, Lúnasa, Harvest 1Aug and Samhain, Death 1Nov. Imbolc is an Irish word meaning ‘in belly’, which for me honours pregnancy, pregnancy in all sentient beings, as we are always pregnant with something just as there is always something dieing within us in the ever changing constant flow of life, the sun rises and falls on us all.
Change can be challenging and it manifests as a block for many of us, an obstacle, a problem, a fear.
Change, the constant fluid flow of life finds a happy home in nature. Nature reminds us of our fluid essence, reminds us that we are always provided for whilst in flow. Nature in our world today must contend with the blocks we constantly build in order to store up for our future rainy days, in order to calm our unease, create security, our insurance for the fear we constantly seek to sooth.
And yet even now in our world today we are witnessing the change within solid stores of our insurance, for no matter how secure we may feel they are, more and more people are waking up each day to the truth that there is nothing to be afraid of and everything to be thankful for. For we, without exception, without condition or prejudice, are co creative beings pregnant with life, nurturing life, celebrating a life changing, passing to other dimensions constantly in flow and never ending. We are cosmic beings experiencing all that life on earth has to offer
This is why I like to celebrate the 4 great seasons of my ancestors for they remind me that I Am Life I Am Love I Am and so are you and so is all and so it is. Amen Alleluia ♥️
