Beltane Blessings to you! And welcome to the blossoming time of the year!
At this time of blooming and blossoming and the strengthening sun and longer days, nature offers us a feast for the senses.
And this is how this Priestess-in-Training has been honouring Beltane so far today: I’ve been sitting in my garden, sipping my cup of ginger tea, letting my senses roam and take it all in.
The intoxicating scent of the lilac and honeysuckle; the feeling of the warmth of the sun on my face; the sound of birds singing; gazing at the fresh greens of the grass and foliage and the beautiful blooms of Choisya, Honeysuckle, Lilac, Violas, Clematis and Euphorbia flowering… (Here are some pics I took this morning in my garden.)
The Goddess at Beltane
At Beltane we are invited to connect to the Goddess Brighid as she appears in the Wheel of the Year at Beltane: in her Lover Bride aspect (in the Avalonian Brighde-Brigantia Wheel of the Year I work with).
Wild and free, a woman unto herself.
Passionate and fiery and courageous.
A peaceful warrior fighting for love and compassion.
Sensual. Creative. Embodied.
She is within me and she is within YOU – can you feel Her energy?
Connecting to Beltane energy
Beltane is all about passion and life.
Connect to Beltane by connecting to your senses.
Get outside today if you can – and feel the earth beneath your feet; the breeze in your hair; the scents around you; the sounds around you.
Freedom and sensuality and creativity and fire and fearlessness are within YOU too dear one.
Close your eyes and let the Beltane fire burn brightly within your belly, your heart and your head.
Embrace a blossoming, burgeoning lust for life!
Beltane blessings to you!
