blossoming with the energies
This year on The Hill of Tara we will be celebrating Bealtaine as never before. We have picked 4 places over the hill and will be processing to each part with people joined by candle bearers trailing garlands of coloured ribbon and flowers. One candle barer will have a representation of the Silver apple of the Moon, the other candle bearer will have a representation of the Golden apple of the Sun.
At each stop along our pilgrimage we will be gifting seeds and water from the Hill of Uisneach to show our thanks and blessings to the land that nurtures and sustains us.
Visiting the Mound of the Dwarf we will knock on the mound with black thorn and white thorn sticks to encourage the nature spirits to wake up and come once again into the land of the living. We will be using a form of flower petal divination as a means of communication with the fairey realm.
At the fairey tree we will be honouring the fairey realm with beauty and with chanting the sound of creation, including the tree as a participant of our circle.
And at Rath Gráinne we will be holding the space to birth the “Leanbh na Griann”, child of the sun or golden child. We intend to leave the ceremony open to pour its magic enliving energy continuously into the country which badly needs it at the moment. We will all send a blessing inwardly as well as outwardly to all beings for the highest good. The leanbh na Griann is a healthy product of the combining of the balanced forces of the female Brigit and Male Patrick at Imbolc and was regarded as a special child. Anyone who has combined their yin yang natures can also celebrate in this birth within themselves.
As it will be around mid day by the time we get to Rath Gráinne it will be time for a picnic lunch, so please bring food to enjoy and share. (Just so you know Nora and Martin do not appreciate fish :-)
