Imbolc is the day that falls between the winter soulstice and the spring equinox. The winter solstice marks the depths of darkness and the deepest connection with your inner soul. It is only through that connection to and wisdom of the inner soul that magnificent inspirations and visions can arise giving way to the rebirth of the spring equinox. Today marks the beginning of that transition, we are once again entering into the light. Thought it is not quite yet time to plant the seeds of inspiration, it is time to prepare them. Over these last few weeks of darkness, stillness and silence, what voices have spoken to you? What fires have you lit to stay warm? What homes have you fortified to stay safe? This is all wisdom, and this wisdom isn't spoken from ego, but from Soul.
It is likely that this wisdom didn't come to you in one grand gesture, but in the form of many thoughts, or seeds. It is time to take these seeds and prepare them for planting. It is time to plan. Now that you know, what will you do? Will you fortify your earth and allow your seeds to germinate? Spring is the time to take action so that in the summer you will bear fruit. To make this year a success you must know the fruit that it is you desire and plan the action necessary to create it.
In the spirit of Imbolc and the goddess Brigid, take time tonight to light candles, be still, cleanse your soul in a deep bath and gather your thoughts. Celebrate with gratitude the darker days that have past, preparing you for the brighter days of your future. Gather the seeds of wisdom and inspiration you have obtained over these last few weeks, as you line them up their power will pull together like a puzzle. Like a true gardener you will plan and space your seeds, readying them for planting and growth so that someday soon you may harvest your dreams.

When I was a kid my mom would occasionally refer to me as a Reverend, because I had the need to speak so passionately about just about everything. Little did she know that some day I would build a business upon sharing the wisdom that I am so passionate about. So here you go, here are some bits and bobs of thoughts strung together for your enjoyment.
