Healing Chant

Deep in my Bone
the Goddess is alive
Deep in my cells and blood
the Life Force is strong
Deep in my heart and spirit
I believe I will heal
I feel the Goddess at my core
filling me with faith and health
Abundant Life Forces of the Universe
flow in me, and banish all disease
My blood, my bones, my cells and my body
are healing now, are healing now
The Goddess force is in me
and healing me now

A Healing Prayer

Oh Great Goddess

Mother of Mercy and Healing

Send the energy of Hygeia
to nourish from Her Sacred Bowl

Send the energy of Brigid
to heal with waters of Her Sacred Well

Send the energy of Demeter
to restore life to withering cells

Send the energy of Quan Yin
to bless the healing with peace

Send Your healing wisdom to the body
to restore its sacred balance
Thank You Great Goddess
Mother of All Life

Thank You For This Day

 Thank You for this day on Earth

Ancient Mother who gave me birth
Healing Mother who keeps me strong
Crone Mother who brings each new dawn

Thank You for the gift of being
For blessing me with the wonders of seeing
For the sounds and feeling of laughter
and the wisdom learned through pain

Spirit Mother bless me, tomorrow with a day again

Prayer of Becoming

May clarity grow within me

Open my eyes to life’s many wonders
May I feel the pulse of all creation within me
Open my spirit to Awareness
Fill my heart with deeper Understanding
May my life be of service to Earth and the Goddess

Open my ears to the needs of those around me
Make my hands strong, sure, & gentle in your service
May I remember always, the Goddess works through me

Self-Dedication Ritual

Preparation Bath:

TOOLS:

  1. (3 Tsp.)Salt (sea salt is best)
  2. Essential Oil (your choice)
  3. Music and player of some sort (optional)
  4. Candles (any color)
  5. Incense and burner (of your choice).

Take a bath in warm water for about 30 minutes to 1 hour or until you feel completely relaxed and refreshed. Add salt and about 1-2 teaspoons of essential oil to the bath water before bathing. This is a relaxing bath so, actually wash before you do this do not take this bath then wash everything off with soap (and the act of washing will riv you up again). Burn the incense while bathing in a heat proof burner away from the bath and flammable materials in the bathing area (bathroom).

Dress in appropriate ritual clothing after the bath or, remain sky-clad if you wish.

Cleanse the ritual area and then cast your Circle- you are ready to begin.

In The Room or Ritual Area:

TOOLS:

  1. Incense of your choice and a heat proof burner.
  2. (4) large candles for the Four Quarters- any color.
  3. (7) small candles your choice of colors.
  4. Matches or a lighter.
  5. Heat proof container for candles.
  6. Salt (sea salt is best)
  7. Ritual clothes ( your choice)
  8. Bell (small enough for you to hold with one hand)
  9. Music recording and player (optional)

Burn your favorite incense here again if you wish. Make sure the room (or area) is dimly lit.

Place the 4 large candles in heat proof containers and place them on the alter in the 4 directions (one per quarter). Place the 7 small candles in heat proof containers and place them on the alter-in no particular formation. Choose something you like.

You can play some music (softly) in the background to help set the mood.

Let thy life and the lives to come be in your service and of your love:

O Mother Goddess and Father God …So Mote It Be! ( Say 3 Times)
