As I dive in, yummily eating up Part 3 of The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina on Netflix…. I am also hit over the head by the perfect deity for a lovely, dark Imbolc…..Lilith.
“Your Majestic Malevolence”
Lilith’s themes are freedom, courage, playfulness, passion, pleasure and sexuality, equality and innner strength.
Perhaps the most obvious of Lilith’s themes is instinct.
Lilith’s wisdom is in large part stored as info in our root chakra that we feel but can’t explain.
She is our challenging, testing, primal subconscious, survival instinct.
Imbolc themes include…..
~wake up the land
~passion and energy to inspire
~clarity of purpose
~increase self trust
~allow your true light to shine
To be honest, Brigid never did it for me. I know, I’m Irish, Celtic, but my gut never went “yessssssss”, til Lilith!
Masses of white candles….. naw, black candles, all your candles, the fire is the thing here.
I love what Michael W. Ford speaks …..
“Black Magick is the process of self-transformation through an antinomian initiatory structure, Black meaning the hidden wisdom, power of darkness, dreams and staging the reality you wish and Magick being the process to ascend, become immortal in spirit“
and another awesome quote….
“At an early age, it seems to be a part of the human condition to rebel against some type of authority as our perceptions of the world change with experience.“
Invoke Lilith for all freeing, liberating, of mind, body, shadow, astral projection , devouring energy, yes, even nature itself can be self devouring.
She is a Witch Queen.
What is the connection between Lilith and Brigid? Sex and Fire, to name two…Lilith is the incarnation of the sexual power of the Feminine, and Brigid was definitely connected with sex, it is where we get the word “Breed”, as in “breeding” animals, and Her rites were celebrated orgiastically.
The Cross of Brigid is a fiery Wheel, and Lilith is connected with “the Flame of the Revolving Sword” that guards the Garden of Eden, and is said to be flaming fire.
Reclaiming, running free ….healing, creativity, nourishment…
The celebration of St. Brigid’s Day on February 1 was put in place by the church to replace Imbolc.
Imbolc is a time of true magick to
awaken the creative spark in our souls,
The Imbolc fire festival, which dates back thousands of years, celebrates the end of the dark winter days and the return of light.
I encourage all to utilize Lilith as we find our true fire.
