Pagan at Heart

At peace with myself and the world… or at least headed that way

Archive for the tag “Imbolc”

My observation of Imbolc went differently than I expected it to – in a good way. I had a sudden realization that my goal for the year was to let go of the past, relax, and let loose. Imbolc is a time for announcing such things, so I hastily threw together a ritual and declared my intentions to the God and Goddess. It was my first ritual and it was sloppy; I fumbled through the whole thing. It was good, though. I feel better for having announced my goal.

Lisa Thiel’s Circle of the Seasons: Imbolc

I’m madly in love with this album. When money allows I want to purchase a cd so I always have access to it. As someone who grew up constantly listening to religious music (Christian), I miss the ability to listen to something that affirms my spirituality. Pagans haven’t been nearly as prolific as Christians in this area, but I’m slowly discovering some good music. I suppose one of the reasons there isn’t an abundance of Pagan music is because, to a Pagan, everything can enhance worship and affirm spirituality – doesn’t have to be a specific kind of music. Also, Pagans don’t seem nearly as obsessed with making sure that all areas of their lives are dominated by religious fervor.

Loved this. Also, as a Midwestern Pagan, his bit about appreciating the snow was very powerful for me. It has certainly changed my perspective on the piles of white stuff outside my window.
