Here is Brigit the Sun Goddess who sits the Divine Forge and Sacred Hearth . She is capable of transforming , with her own magical, alchemical, divine transmutation, one thing to another. Because of this she is the keeper of the secret Fire, a substance containing Heaven and Earth, which is the 5th element after fire, air, earth and water. This is the fire used in alchemy and also the fire which Prometheus stole from Heaven. It is serpentine in nature symbolising life force. It is the energy of Kundalini, Chi, Prana.
Brigit reaches down into the dark Earth to connect with the ‘divine spark’ , she offers us divine inspiration . She is also Goddess of poetry and resides over purification and the waters of the sacred wells. Her energy is celebrated at Imbolc, a time of the stirring of growth within the dark earth. Three rivers are named after her …Brigit in Ireland, Braint in Wales and Brent in England .
“Seek that which is not possible” ….These are the words Carl Jung carved above his Hearth within his beloved Tower house.
An Old Gaelic hymns for Imbolc reflect the nature of her celebration and her kundalini aspect;
‘Early on Brides morn, shall the serpent come from the hole.
I will not harm the serpent, nor will the serpent harm me.’
