Healing Ritual from The Welcoming Circle

1

Here is the ritual we used last night at The Welcoming Circle. The table was set with a clear bowl of water to which was added three pinches of salt. The candle set in the middle of the bowl and healing stones were placed in all four directions: Celestite to the East, Apatite to the South, Blue Kyanite to the West, and Black Kyanite to the North.

CASTING THE CIRCLE—David Taliesin

Guardians and Elemental Spirits of the East,
place of air, the breath of life,
that which we cannot see,
but which fills us with inspiration,
be with us now.
Hail and welcome!

Guardians and Elemental Spirits of the South,
place of fire, heat of heart’s blood,
that which courses through us,
filling us with passion
and infusing us with life-giving heat,
be with us now.
Hail and welcome!

Guardians and Elemental Spirits of the West,
place of water, shape-shifting,
that which constantly moves and transforms,
nurturing creativity,
and gifting us with fresh vision,
be with us now.
Hail and welcome!

Guardians and Elemental Spirits of the North,
place of grounding, place of birth,
fierce winter land of ice and cold,
endings and beginnings,
always calling us home,
be with us now.
Hail and Welcome!

Ancient Mother of Midwinter,
Watcher over life and death,
The one who rebirths the world,
Be with us on this night!
See us through the dark hours
And stand with us
As dawn births the promise of new life.
Hail and welcome!

HEALING RITUAL—David Taliesin

Close your eyes. Visualize pulling the energy from the earth up though the souls of your feet and into your body until the souls of your feet tingle. Go with whatever color comes to mind.

Then pull the energy of the moon and stars down from the sky and into your body and let these two energies intertwine. Again, go with whatever color comes to mind. Let them grow and expand until they fill your body with energetic light which you may picture as a sphere or a double helix or any other image that comes to mind.

Energize the sacred sphere so perfect love casts out all fear.

We are just vessels. Let your power flow through us.

When you’re ready, open your eyes and reach our your hands toward the water and candle. Let that healing energy flow into them and radiate outward to fill the sacred circle.

In order to help this energy flow more freely, join me in the Nn-ah tone chant. The Nn sound lets the energy resonate in your body. The “ah” sounds releases it into the circle.

Then, on the court of three, ask everyone to draw the healing energy we raised and take it into their bodies.

As we near the conclusion of this ritual, we will make a circle with this blue string. It reminds us that we are connected together, not only in this circle, but in the mundane world as well.

In a moment we will each take a piece of this string home with us. Tie it to your wrist, place it on your home altar or some other location that will serve as a visual reminder of your need for self care. May it remind you of what you’ve learned and experienced tonight. May it challenge to to make self care an important goal in your life.

DISMISSING THE CIRCLE—David Taliesin

Guardians and Elemental Spirits of the North, Powers of Earth, Stone and Oak, thank you for your presence and grounding energy in our circle tonight. Stay if you will. Go if you must. We bid you farewell!

Guardians and Elemental Spirits of the West, Powers of Water, Snow and Ice, thank you for your presence and healing energy in our circle tonight. Stay if you will. Go if you must. We bid you farewell!

Guardians and Elemental Spirits of the South, Powers of Fire, Lightning, and Sun thank you for your presence and courageous energy in our circle tonight. Stay if you will. Go if you must. We bid you farewell!

Guardians and Elemental Spirits of the East, powers of Air, Smoke, and Moon, thank you for your presence and inspirational energy in our circle tonight. Stay if you will. Go if you must. We bid you farewell!

Ancient Mother of Midwinter,
You bless us with your presence in our circle tonight.
Keep our intentions as strong as the ice.
May your winds of inspiration blow mightily through our lives,
And help our magic to blanket the world
Like snow upon the ground.
Stay if you will, go if you must. We bid you farewell!

And now the circle is open but never unbroken
Because it is a circle woven in love.
Whatever energy is left in this space
We return to the earth and to the animals around us
Who need its strength this winter.
Merry meet and merry part, and merry meet again.
