Brigit





                                                  

          




                   The Sacred Flame of Brigid continues to burn brightly at Kildare, Ireland.

For thousands of years the Flame burned in honor of the Goddess Brigid,

tended by nineteen Priestesses dedicated to Brigid. Each Priestess tended

the Flame for a single day, and on the twentieth day, the flame was tended

by the Goddess Brigid herself.  The Flame is tended and still burns today.
  

With the coming of Christianity, the church suppressed the worship of the Goddess Brigid,
but in fine Irish fashion, people simply continued to worship Her as St. Brigid and Her Sacred
Flame continued to burn brightly in Her honor. Today, a Nun tends the sacred fires, at times,
a number of Nuns tend Brigid's Sacred Flame and on the twentieth day, Brigid Herself, still
watches over the Flame and continues to bless and protect Her people, the Irish and Celts .


Brigid protects all those who honor Her as the Goddess Brigid  and Saint Brigit.


February 1st is Imbolc, the Pagan Fire Festival dedicated to the Goddess Brigid.

The worship of the Goddess has been preserved to this day in Christian Ireland,

February 1st is also celebrated as the Catholic Feast day of St. Brigid.


Brigid's Cross is a woven wheel of the year that marks the cycles of Nature and is sacred
to the Goddess. A Brigid's Cross can easily be made from grasses or other plant materials.
This piece is a good example of how the Celts and other indigenous people found ways of
keeping Pagan beliefs of their ancestors alive, despite their forced conversion to Christianity.

Hail Dana

Brigid...Brigit...Bride...Brigantia...Brigindo
Great Goddess of Healers, Poets, Mystics, and Smiths

Your Sacred Fires burn brightly upon Sacred Altars
Deep in the Earth, Your springs of Inspiration flow

Forge hammers spark with craft, as Smiths work in Your Honor
Words and Song flow from the hearts of Poets and Musicians
Healers are again turning to Your Sacred Ways with Reverence

May Your Sacred Wells overflow with the Essence of Your Presence
May we always to use the Gifts You grant us . . . with Wisdom
Fill our hearts with the Courage & Kindness of Your Sacred Horses

Goddess of Smiths  

Smiths speak through metal, water, air and fire to honor the Goddess. They are alchemists of the elements. 
From earliest times they have crafted civilization in metal, jewelry, vessels, weapons, finery and tools.

This Amphora is a piece I created in bronze as a homage to Brigid. It is called the "Ciaran Amphora."
Ciaran is the original form of my family name and means "dark ones", a reference to coloring of the "Black Irish".

It is with great gratitude, that I use the gifts of skills and inspiration that have been bestowed on me by the Goddess Brigid. 
You have gifts from Brigit you haven't even dreamed of or begun to explored yet. Let yourself discover Brigit's magic within you.



Brigit awaits . . .

BR>

Brigit awaits, Her spirit is softly calling to us,
in the trees, in the grasses, in the hills and fields, 
alive in many realms, present in all Nature's places.


Brigit awaits, present in the world around us,
Her mighty gifts of vision, insight, healing and craft
grow stronger when we acknowledge their power

Brigit awaits, dancing in the candle flame and hearth fire
forging truth, justice, healing, and beauty on Her sacred anvil
our dreams flow and nourish us, like Her sacred waters

Brigit awaits each of us, in our own heart.
