Circle of Brigid Meditation
I recently read the book, The Witch in Every Woman by Laurie Cabot, and it was filled with lots of great information. There was info on different Celtic Goddesses, and little rituals and meditations to try. The part of the book about the Goddess Brigid had a great meditation to do to honor her and feel her sacred flame within yourself. It involved empowering a stone with her energy, and carrying this "Brigid" stone with you. I thought I would share it with you here so we can all have a Brigid stone!
For this meditation, you will need enough black, white and red candles to make a circle around you while you are seated on the floor. You will also need a red stone, in the book she suggests either garnet or ruby. I used red jasper because that was the only red stone I had on hand. The candle circle represents the Goddess Brigid and her stone, her psychic flame. Get comfortable seated in your circle. Light the candles and hold the red stone against your solar plexus. Envision the flame in the center of the stone transferring inside your body. Feel its heat. Say aloud:
This is my psychic flame within,
This will spur the fire of my psychic abilities,
I carry this stone as a symbol of your strength within me,
I am the keeper of the flame,
Every time I relight a candle, I rekindle my psychic ability,
I know my psychic sense guides me, protects me, heals me, and showers me with love and self esteem,
I always use my psychic ability for the good of all people,
As a witch, I never do harm or return harm,
I neutralize and bind all evil thoughts, actions and deeds,
And let the outcome be the force of the Great Goddess Brigid.
Carry the stone close to you, in your pocket or purse. Hold it and handle it to feel the strength of your psychic sense.
Enjoy your Brigid stone! For more rituals like this, check out The Witch in Every Woman by Laurie Cabot.
