Daily Angel Oracle Card: Brigid ~ Inspiration, from the Goddess Oracle Card deck, by Amy Sophia Marashinsky, Illustrated by Hrana Janto
Brigid ~ Inspiration:
“Let me come to you
through the mists
through the fire
through the plants
through the deep flowing wells
music beyond the tips of your ears
Let me move you
till your perspective shifts
and your mind ~ body~ spirit explodes
and you are left standing
in the wake of what has been revealed…
and life feels very sweet”
Mythology: “Brigid (pronounced bridge’id, (which means “bright,” is a Celtic triple Goddess of fire: the fire of inspiration, smithcraft, poetry, healing, and divination. Her inspiration was vital to the bards (poets) who called upon her freely. Legend says that Brigid was born with a flame reaching out from the top of her head, connecting her with the universe. The new (Christian) and the old (Pagan) Brigid were merged into St. Brigid in A.D. 450. St. Brigid, daughter of a Druid, was a goldsmith and a healer. Nineteen priestesses/nuns guard her sacred fire in Kildare, Ireland. On the twentieth of each month it is said that she appears and tends it herself.”
Meaning of the Card: “Brigid comes to ignite you with inspiration. Are you feeling a lack of direction? Motivation? Energy? Has your path gone out of focus, your life become unclear? It is time to nurture wholeness by taking in the sparkle and crackle of inspiration. Brigid says that a life without the fire of inspiration is dull indeed. She further counsels that by allowing inspiration to nurture your life you become sharper, clearer, and more energetic.”*

Now we have the element of Fire as our Ally through the Goddess Brigid. Fire is passion and movement and transmutation; it is action and adventure and motivation. Where is your life stagnant? What needs to be burned away in order to see the Truth and the Light available to you? Only you know the answer. Fire will give you the necessary motivation and inspiration to make the necessary changes to find your passions again and set your heart on fire (in a good way!)
Moving into the New Earth consciousness requires authenticity. We are asked to find our true selves and live from a heart centered place of gratitude and joy…. with a spicy edge of passion, sensuality and zest for life! This can only be done if we achieve balance between our light and shadow selves. Fire can assist us in shedding light on that which must be healed in order for us to find and live our Soul purpose in this incarnation. Finding our true passion and living it is key.
What gets your fire burning? What do you love to do? What gets your blood pumping through your veins while time stands still… what makes you feel alive beyond anything else?
Go do that. And ask Brigid to assist you in harnessing this energy in order to move forward towards the creation of your wildest dreams.
