I was going to take the whole shebang Deity concept for the Pagan Insight Project but I am not ready for that and I am still having some stuff I need to work out about Brigid.
I think I mentioned she showed up at Imbolc. Which wouldn’t have been so much of a surprise if she and I had met before. It is not that I have not known about her or respect and honor her. Just she has mostly existed for me around my peripheral. She is one with my BFF, but she has never talked to me before and so I am still rather reeling from the experiences.
In regards to Deity concept I still feel strongly for me that the Deities are not metaphors. Now I say for me because maybe they appear this way to me because that is my belief system. It is rather a chicken or egg question and I do not know the answer, but for me they are not metaphors they are real and they are different. Why else would it affect me so much if She showed up one way or another.
The other thing I know for sure (for me) is that your lessons are always something that seems to hard to do. Of course Brigid didn’t just come and say keep doing what you’re doing. go you. No when a Goddess or God show up pretty much you can count on a them telling you to go on a journey that will be difficult and require a lot of growth and will be a deep lesson. Can I do it Yes. Will I do it? Of course I gave my word. Will it scare me. SO MUCH!
I can’t help but think that along with my BFF Brigid is also connected to my free and fiery spirit little girl. I am contemplative of what this will mean for her life and I have an inkling that she may be a healer. Why do I think this. Well I don’t really know but it is the feeling or message I am getting. As for Little who ever she becomes or whatever she chooses to do with her life (within the basic parameters of kindness, respect and basic human decency) will be fine with me. However you look at it Brigid is much more in our lives now.
