An Enchanting Prayer for Imbolc [5 Min Chant]

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

Imbolc is an amazing pagan holiday to focus on change things, especially at a spiritual level. But how can we honor and connect with this holiday in an easy practical way? You can pray! If you are new to prayers don’t worry!

What is a prayer for Imbolc?

A prayer for Imbolc is a way to state your commitment to the universe and to the spirits to show that you’re willing to celebrate this special time of the year.


Imbolc is a pagan festival celebrated on February 1st or 2nd, marking the halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.

An enchanting prayer for Imbolc is a powerful way to honor the Celtic goddess Brigid and welcome the return of the sun and the coming of spring.

To prepare for the prayer, you can clean and purify your home, decorate with candles, take a cleansing Imbolc bath, and create a Bridget’s cross for added symbolism.

Cleansing your mind through meditation and visualization is essential to connect with the spiritual energy of Imbolc.

The prayer itself should be heartfelt and spoken with intention, expressing gratitude for the changing seasons and invoking the blessings of Brigid.

How does it work?

A prayer for Imbolc can help you disconnect from the past and the darkness of the winter months opening yourself to the light and the new opportunities of the springtime!

Why should I honor Imbolc with a prayer?

In the wheel of the year, Imbolc is the gateway between winter, now in its decline, and the imminent spring.

This passage symbolically represents the transition from the “dark period”, characterized by cold, darkness, and death brought by winter, towards the renewal of the cosmos, expressed with the rebirth of Nature.

The light that was born on the Winter Solstice begins to manifest itself at the beginning of February: the days get longer little by little and even if the winter season continues to hold its cold grip, we realize that something is changing.

What is the best time to do it?

The Imbolc festival is celebrated on the night between the 1st and 2nd of February. If you can do your prayer on this night, that would be great! Otherwise, do it in the days right after Imbolc but make sure you don’t wait too much to let its energy stay around and very high enough to connect with it!

If you want to commit to this moment of prayer you can make it a part of your daily ritual!

Clean and purify the house

Those who have not had time to cleanse themselves and the house do not waste time! Take a few clockwise turns around the house or rooms with a candle and light an incense stick to cleanse the room of negativity.

Decorate and add candles

You can decorate the place with spring flowers, candles, which are a symbol of purification. It is best to use candles of white and green shades that personify the end of winter and the beginning of spring. You can also use juniper essential oil.


Take a cleansing Imbolc bath

Add a few drops of juniper in the bath. Why juniper? Because it has an incredible ability to purify the person’s aura. Soak in the bathtub.

Try to relax, clear your thoughts and think only of spring and the awakening of nature. The bubble bath can be even better with a green, spring-scented bath bomb! After your bath, pat dry with a clean white towel.

Honor the Bridget’s cross

Some peoples have made the “Bridget’s cross” symbolic in the time of Imbolc. It was called upon to attract the goddess’ powers and strengthen cleanliness. The cross was attached above the doors of the house. For a whole year, it had the role of a protective amulet, and just before the party, they burned it, along with the negative energy that has accumulated in it. A new cross hung in its place.

Cleanse your mind with meditation and visualization

Choose a quiet and peaceful place in the open air, where no one will bother you, so you can be alone with yourself. It could be a park, a garden, a favorite tree, etc.

Take some seeds of the plant you like best and plant them in the ground in this place. According to the zodiac sign, it is better to take those seeds suitable for you.

After that, light a small wax candle and wait for it to burn until the end. Look at the flame.

Eliminate your negative thoughts. Imagine that all your ideas are somehow connected with your future life and that you want to realize, and that seed should grow. Meditate on what you want to see grow, health, strength, success for yourself and your loved ones.

Prayer for Imbolc

“The darkness fades away…
I can see light…
I can feel rebirth..
I can sense nature coming back to life..
I choose to say goodbye to the past..
I open my heart… my mind… my body… my soul…
The blessings will come…
I am getting ready to receive them…
To embrace them…
To make them mine…
I choose to cleanse my soul and my space…
I am making room for the fresh energy made of light…
Blessed be”

What should you do after prayer?

After prayer, you can let the candle burn out completely. You can also reuse it, in case you decide to make this prayer like a part of a daily ritual. Keep Bridget’s cross with you or on display to honor her and don’t forget to celebrate light by keeping some candles lit all day long at least once a week!

And don’t forget to meditate, focus on your feelings, and get rid of your past!

If you want to attract something into your life and prayers are not your thing, don’t forget you can rely on my professional spell casting services!
