Water is as mysterious and powerful as it is plentiful. In magic spells and rituals water is purifying, feminine, healing and life-giving. In a very real sense water brings magic into our everyday lives. The powers of the element of water are far more than simply symbolic, water is indeed used to cleanse, support new life in the womb and to heal those with a fever, to name just a very few of its myriad uses!

A Prayer to Brighid

thewanderingcelt:

Oh Great Brighid,
I am your ingot of iron,
and you are my smith.
What will you forge me into?
Will I be a spear, so that I may pierce darkness?
Will I be a hammer, so that I will build for the community?
Or shall I be a cauldron, so that I may care for your people?
I am iron and you will forge me into hard steel.
Polish me, so that I may shine in darkness
And be beautiful in your hands.
Bathe me in your fire,
and I will be strong!
