When one opens her heart to the Goddess Brid, a woman can expect to be flooded with inspiration. She was with me before I was born. As a child, I wrote poetry, danced freely to music, and was comforted with a wonder of nature. As a teen, I drew labyrinths and instinctively found protection in a spiritual ring of fire. Even though I was blind to her presence, she has patiently guided me through my life like the understanding Mother that she is.
Brid has many symbols that can be used for magickal or prayer purposes. Her animals include the swan, a white cow with red ears, the wolf, the snake, and the vulture. She is associated with the cauldron, springs, and wells. Milk and blackberries are her sacred foods. Brid can be seen in flames and the hearth of your home.
