Ritual Content (Visualisation and empowerment of the egg)
Sit quietly and meditate, whilst holding the egg between both hands ( or visualising the egg) to connect to its energies.
Say out loud " Brighid, hear my call! I call on you in your aspects of maiden & mother, asking for your energies of new beginnings, inspiration & nurture, to help keep me strong & focused!!"
Visualise the egg yolk inside the shell as Brighid's fire of inspiration - see the fire, burning strong, feel the flames flickering & hot aiding your inspiration and keeping your focus true!
When you are ready call on Brighid again -
" Brighid, I ask you to lend your energies to my egg, and mix them with my intent for spiritual growth, to aid me in my goal this Ostara!"
- Sit, holding the egg between your hands to charge it with your intent. - Hold the egg between both palms, imagining a white light coming up through the earth, it travels up your torso, down your arms and into the egg. - Filling it with your intent & Brighid’s energy. - Hold the image of the fire of inspiration as the yolk, until you feel the egg is full of energy and intent. - The egg can now be used on your altar or elsewhere as a tool for focus and inspiration, during your month of spiritual growth.
When you are ready to, release the energies of the egg, Goddess and quarters and close circle.
