Pendulum what is it

Pendulum what is it

Pendulum what is it you may ask. The pendulum is basically an amplifier.

It is a tool that helps you to access the collective unconscious and your Higher Self.

Pendulum what is itYou can get answers to anything you can come up with.

Everyone is basically capable of working with the pendulum. Learning to work with it is like learning to play an instrument.
It requires constant practice and experimentation Making mistakes is part of the learning process.
The results you get will reflect your stage of spiritual/mental development.

You should not use the pendulum for egoistic reasons. Use it only for the wellbeing of others or yourself.

REMEMBER: Swinging the pendulum requires that you be undivided and totally present in the moment.

TYPES OF PENDULUMS

Pendulum what is itDepending what are they used for, they can be for: healing specific illnesses, for adjusting chakras, teleradiesthesia (distance healing, map dowsing).

They can also be: Simple: tear drop, ball-shaped, conical, spiral, made from brass, copper, crystal, wood, ceramic.

     Or with their own radiation: Universal Pendulum, Osiris, Isis, Karnak, Mer-Isis, Atlantis…

SELECTING OR MAKING A PENDULUM

Pendulum what is itYou can make a pendulum yourself if you take a thread and hang a weigh on it which can be any object you like.
The thread can be 15 to 20 cm long. Tie a knot in the thread at the length where the swing of the pendulum feels the best.
When selecting a pendulum follow your intuition and choose one that you like.

Witch Zak Off Beat

Witch Zak Off Beat

It’s a bit of an offbeat rambling today for those who follow the high rise witch aKa witch Zak.

I’m coming to you this day from the bench on the local park… no I am Witch Zak Off Beatnot homeless lol. I’m using my tablet and keeping an eye open for any muggers that may be lurking nearby.

Sad world we live in at times when we have to be on our guard against crack heads who would gladly turn you over for their next fix.
Anyway, it’s such a beautiful sunny day that I needed to temporarily distance myself from the High Rise block to maintain some sort of sanity. George the guy below me in the tower decided to hold a séance yesterday afternoon and ever since he believes he is possessed by evil spirits. Around eight o clock last evening he came and asked me to perform an exorcism on him and rid his flat of evil spirits. I ushered him into my kitchen sprinkled him with tap water placed a little in a small bottle I had handy to use around his flat and told him to piss off. He seemed quite pleased with that and I have not heard from him this morning. He’s probably tied to his bed with the local vicar in attendance.

And now a part from the heart: Tiss the beauty I see within your eyes that makes my heart beat so, your presence be with me ever more else emptiness I will knowSorted.

Later, today my pagan friend is coming around to have a chat. He has been a good friend over the years and struggled so much bless him. I do strongly believe that wicca has helped him greatly through his dark times as it has done so for many others following the path. We get on quite well as we both agree that no matter what sex, religion, colour or creed one maybe we are all still human and have only the one life to live. I frown upon people with closed minds for they miss out on so much in life I feel. I am not going to dwell on prejudice for I have no time or need of it in my life.
Well the clouds have just drifted across the sun once more as I sit here tapping the keys of the tablet, I wonder what they will bring out next in the world of technology? One thing is for sure that there will always be advancement in our world as long as there is a buck in it for the inventor. Like the man who invented cats eye for our roads. It came about when his vehicle light caught a cat crossing the road the reflection in the eyes of the cat gave him the brilliant idea and hence cats eyes down the centre of our roads was born. If the cat had been going the other way, he would have probably invented the pencil sharpener.

Talking about cats in case you did not know members of the craft class our feline friends as familiars with great spiritual value, alas I cannot own a cat in the high rise block but I have fond memories of days gone by.

Back to the tablet before the battery is drained on this demon machine which brings a thought to mind: Come the day when the internet cloud goes tits up and we are all doomed as in the film, such is life. I will sign off for now as the pigeons are gathering around me sort of like the film Alfred Hitchcock and the birds, there’s some weird shit going off here.

I look forward to negative comments as it shows that you have a lower intelligence than me. Now piss off

Landmarks Of The Craft

Landmarks Of The Craft

Landmarks Of The Craft for your book of shadows. A landmark is a prominent feature used to mark the boundaries of real estate.

Therefore, these landmarks of the Craft are prominent features of the American Rite, or Druidic Craft of the Wise. 

Just as departing from the landmarks in real estate signifies that one has departed from that piece of land, so does departure from the landmarks of our Craft signify such a person or organization has departed from the correct defines of the Craft. Other branches of the Craft sometimes call this their “Law”.

The Landmarks

The landmarks were given to man by The Great God, Pan.

In the dim, dark ages of the past
For the rule and regulation of the wise,
To advise and help them in their troubles
And relations, one with the other,
That all might work and love together.

They are the Bill of Rights of each member,
And the code of operation of the Coven.
And are to be honoured by all
Or else they become meaningless and of little use,
And departure therefrom by any person or Coven
Shall be a departure from the rest of the Covens
Which constitute the American Rite.

And they shall be shunned, they from the rest of us,
And no further communication shall be established
Concerning things of the Craft
With either He or They until
They shall return to the fold of the Craft
In love and cooperation.

For the Gods love the Wise, the Brethren of the Way,
And so should we return that love.
But this can only be done and made manifest by love expressed
In deeds for the Brethren of the Craft,
Not in pride, but in cooperation and sincerity.

The Fellows Of The Craft

Any person, be male or female, who is of good mind
And free to decide for himself in good faith,
Who shall learn of the Craft and its Tenets,
And shall desire to follow the Way,
Shall be permitted to do so,
And none may say him “Nay”.

And the Gods will love him and look after him,
And they shall bless him on all things,
And his needs shall always be satisfied,
As he shall show forth love and affection
For all the brethren and sisters of the Craft,
And he shall obey the Admonishments
Of the Craft as to secrecy and correct living.

And when he shall desire to join the Craft,
And to follow the Way to Perfection,
He shall make his desires known to any member
Of the Priesthood.
And they shall observe his readiness and sincerity,
And shall then administer the rites of
Secrecy, which is sacredness and brotherhood.

But a Priest shall accept the Sister,
And a Priestess the Brother,
As an eternal reminder of
The duality of the Universe.
And a new name and secret mark
Shall be given each new fellow.

By this name, and under this mark,
Shall they be known among the members
Of the Craft, in love and harmony,
And their old name and identity shall not be known
Even among the members of their own Coven,
And none shall inquire for his name or his house
And he shall inquire these of none.

But the Gods have decreed that in joining the Rite,
Free Will and independence shall not be in jeopardy.
And he shall have the right to follow the Way.
Walking alone if he wills it that way,
Or with a Coven of living brethren
If he so shall choose;

And he shall have the right
To withdraw from any coven at any time
Without the need to say why,
If he shall so choose.

And this either for the purpose of joining another
Or to become solitary for his own reasons,
And there will be none to censure;

And he shall have the right to remain
In a certain Coven, and none shall say him “Nay”,
Or to attempt to force him to leave and depart;
Except that should he lose harmony with them
Then they may so decide
And he shall depart;

But no man shall have the right
To speak for the Craft,
And leaving one Coven does not mean
Leaving the Craft, or
Leaving the Way
And each is free, then, or at any time later,
To remain solitary
Or to seek admission to another Coven.

But let him and each other fellow of the Craft
Keep a book, and this shall be of the colours of the Craft,
That it may be readily recognized,
And here he shall keep all the Laws and Landmarks,
And the tenets of the Craft,
That he might not forget,
And if he do forget, that his mind might be
Renewed.

And in this book, all things shall be the mark
Of his own hand, and in ink,
That it shall be long lived.

Let each of the brothers and sisters
Copy what they will from the book,
Providing that they are of sufficient worthiness,
To receive it, and are of sufficient rank,
Or that the writings are of sufficient nature
As pertain to their own rank.

Never suffer this book out of hand or possession,
And never borrow the writings of another
To keep, but merely to copy.
And each shall guard and keep these writings,
As his most sacred possession
And destroy them when danger threatens.

However, should one be of sufficient power,
To remember his past as a wise man,
This book and other Craft artifacts,
May be buried in a stone box
Prepared for them from time to time,
And this in view of immediate death,
And the desire to save them for a future life.

Otherwise, on notice of impending death,
This book should be destroyed by fire,
As well as other things of the Craft,
Which one may possess.

But the wise man will have nothing around
Which has only a Craft use or meaning,
But only things which can be used in daily affairs.

If there is no reason to own a sword,
Then do not own one;
The white wand is just as powerful,
And less distinctive in the minds of the infidels.

If a white wand is too distinctive,
Then any old wand will do for the purpose
Of the ceremonies.

Have no names written and signs drawn
On anything permanently,
When necessary these can be written
In charcoal or chalk
And erased immediately without the telling of tales.

Let the knife have the shape of,
And be stored with the kitchen knives;
Let the cord be seen around the house,
And be used for a vulgar purpose,
In order to fool the infidels.

Never boast, never threaten, never brag
Of your powers; not even to the Craft,
Above all, never harbour ill thoughts toward another
For the power may make it happen for harm;
And never wish ill to anyone.
As it will occur.

If anyone speaks of the Craft, to down it,
Remember the Craft needs no defence,
For it has the Father and
All things will be as He wishes
In the end.

The Coven

And it shall be that any Fellow of the Craft,
Finding himself in a place where he knows of no Coven,
Or other Fellow of the Craft
Shall have the right, nay, even the duty,
To seek out such a Coven,
Or other Fellow of the Craft
Without censure.

Provided that he shall not reveal secrets to jeopardize
His former Coven or the members of it,
Or the Craft itself.

And two or three Fellows shall have the right
To meet and discuss subjects of Craft interest,
And to help each other along
On the Way to Perfection,
Except that Craft ceremonies
Must be done by the Priesthood.
Any five fellows who shall desire
To form a Coven may do so,
And they shall apply for a charter
To any High Priest or Priestess,
And they shall then select and choose
A man and a woman to lead them.

And their elected leaders shall be ordained by their High Priest,
And they shall choose two more,
A woman to be the deputy; to learn to be a priestess,
And a Scribe for their Coven.

But these shall not be ordained to the Priesthood,
Unless also qualified for another reason.

And this Coven shall belong to the High Priest,
And shall be answerable to him in all their doings,
Because they did owe their Priesthood to him,
And he shall act at all times in their interest
As their Spiritual Father in the Craft
So that he may lead them as they walk
The way to perfection.

But the newly appointed Priesthood,
Should it be lacking in the knowledge and wisdom needed,
For the positions to which they have been set apart
Then it shall be his responsibility as their High Priest,
To lead and instruct them,
Or cause it to be done by another.

But should the new Coven refuse to follow
The teachings and instructions of their Spiritual Father,
Then he may, at his discretion and Judgment,
Recall their charter, and their right to work as a Coven.
For that which one can give he may also retrieve,
And they shall not again meet,
Unless they can find another High Priest,
Who will assume responsibility over them.

It is the bound duty of the High Priest to preside, for all things must be presided over by the High Priesthood;

And should any Coven desire to change,
Their allegiance from one High Priest to another,
For any reason, even the loss of harmony,
Or if, in their considered opinion, their Spiritual Father
Is no longer spiritual, or serving the Father
Then they shall be re-ordained in the Priesthood
By the New High Priest, and this shall then
Have superseded the original ordinations,
And there shall be for them
A new Spiritual Father.

And if any Priest or Priestess, or other member of the Priesthood,
Find themselves in a place wherein there is no Coven for them to lead,
Then it is their bound duly to try to the extent of their Power
To find Fellows of the Craft
And organize them into a Coven.

And should they find that there are no other Fellows of the Craft,
In that place, but there are some of the same good bend of mind,
It is then their duty to teach them by word and deed,
Until there be sufficient to form a Coven,
And this shall be done under the supervision,
And with the knowledge of their High Priest,
Through which they received their ordination
And their Powers.

And they shall obligate, teach and initiate all the members of their Coven,
And they shall be theirs and they shall be to them
As elder brothers and sisters,
And shall care for them in all their affairs,
And not just at meetings,
For it is in this that the Craft differs
From all man-made institutions.

Should any member be absent, and love of the Priestess is such
That she shall continue to contact them in any manner
And by any method possible,
To tender them her loving care
At all times of sickness or stress.

And should any member move to a far city
The Priestess will continue to care for them
In love, by whatever method is available,
Until such time as they shall,
Of their own free will,
Obligate themselves to another Priestess.

And the Priestess shall at all times remember
That she is the direct representative of the Goddess to her Coven,
And the Priest is the direct representative of
The unknown God, the Father,
And both must act as such at all times.

Yet the Priestess shall have whomever she shall choose
As her Priest, be he of that rank, or qualified to be,
Or else another Fellow, who shall be called
her Magister.

And she must remember at all times that the man provides the power,
For the woman to direct, and so it is,
That the Priest resigns all his power over to her,
Yet it is not his power, nor hers to keep,
It is the power of God to use in the performance
Of the Work.
The Power of God is only lent to be used,
Wisely and Justly.

Both the members of the Priesthood shall remember their Spiritual Father,
At all times with gratitude, love, veneration and cooperation,
keeping constantly in contact, and acting with him in utmost harmony,
For they must always remember that the power
And wisdom which they use,
Comes to them through him.

In the days of old, ere the coming of Christendom,
The Craft was free and open in its ceremonies,
And entire states and nations worshiped the Gods
Freely and without restraint;

But in these unhappy days, we must remain secret,
And hold our rites and ceremonies in secret,
And there are those who will talk, even without torture,
Which loosens any tongue.

Then let it be ordained, heeded and supported by all
That no Coven shall know wherein
The next Coven shall abide, or who its members be,
Except only the Priestess, Magister and Deputy,
And even they shall not remember
Except for good and sufficient reason.

But, and if only, it should be safe, may the covens meet
In some safe place for festivals, and while there,
None may say whence they came, nor give their true names,
Or tell of where or when their meetings are, and
No secret things shall be spoken of
At these festivals for fear of Cowans and Eavesdroppers.

Let each Priestess govern her own Coven in justice and love,
Ever heeding the advice and instructions of her High Priest.
She will ever heed the complaints of the brethren
And strive to settle all differences between them with love.

But there are those who, in pride, will ever strive
To force their will upon others
But these are not necessarily evil
And will think that they do rightly.
Oft they have good ideas and such ideas
Should be discussed in council with their brethren.

But if they will not agree with their brethren,
Or if they say “I will not work under this Priestess”,
Then they shall have the right to withdraw from that Coven,
And work Solitary.
Or if five or more of them shall withdraw,
They shall have the right
To form another Coven under another Priestess.

Even as it shall be the right of any five or more persons of a Coven
To withdraw, and form a new Coven, for any reason whatever,
But they shall then utterly avoid the old Coven
In all things, as it shall then have ceased to exist for them.

The Book Of Shadows

Let every Coven of whatever rank
Keep a record in a book of black and silver,
And it shall contain, first, the Landmarks and Tenets,
Then a collection of Wisdom of the Craft,
The Rites and Ceremonies of the Coven
As well as the History of the Coven,
And its charter empowering it to work.

And a record of every meeting shall be written therein,
Together with a record of the doings of any member thereof
With the other side, or the Father, or
Any other thing which is for the teaching of all,
Even unto the listing of herbs and medicines
Spells and incantations and Rites
Which contain power for the use of man.

This book shall be kept by the Scribe,
And it shall be kept and approved by the Priesthood
And also the High Priesthood, when it shall come,
But no names or Craft secrets shall be written therein
That he Craft should not be betrayed
Should the book be taken by force,
Or slyness, by the infidels.

And when the coven shall disband,
It shall be the duty of the High Priesthood
To secure this book and make suitable disposition
That it might not endanger the Craft
Or any brother within it
As if the Coven were a person or Fellow
And the book were his book,
So let it be burned.

The Priesthood

The Mother, The seven Elder Children, and all the worlds,
Draw their power from the Father.

But the children of the Father are like the sands of the sea,
And He has ordained and set apart certain of his older children,
To help and assist Him in caring for the younger children,
And has given them the Power and the Wisdom to do so,
And these children constitute the Priesthood.

The Father will bestow this power upon whom he will, and none may say him”Nay”
Yet also may the Priesthood choose workers and helpers
And shall share their power with them,
And this is called ordination.

The Power of the Priesthood is that of the Father
And it is love unfeigned and sincere,
Compassion and gentleness and meekness,
Persuasion and long-suffering and kindness,
And there is no authority over the free will of men
Inherent in the Priesthood,
Nor to be assumed by the members of it.

And the Power of the Priesthood is the Power of God,
And the Power of God can never be wielded by an ungodly man,
Nor an evil man; nor the love of God by an unloving man;
And when the man becomes evil, the Power of God is withdrawn from him.

Nor can a member of the Priesthood be inactive,
For inactivity without cause is lack of love for the Father,
And this man’s priesthood shall depart from him
At the end of a year and a day,
For it is truth eternal,
That the thing which is unused will be taken away.

So if any Fellow of the Craft shall desire the Priesthood,
First let him learn to be a leader of men,
For a Priest with no following is no Priest,
And his Priesthood is in vain.

So therefore let the Fellow who would be a Priest
First learn the knowledge and wisdom he will need in the new appointment,
Then let him learn to lead men, and
When he shall either have been selected
As leader for his Coven,
Or when he shall have gathered up a Coven of his own,
Then let him apply for ordination.

And he shall apply to a High Priest, for it is written
That only the higher can ordain the lesser,
That there shall be an unbroken line
Of power and authority extending
Back through the line of ordination,
To the Father Himself.

And no man can ordain his peers,
For the Lord’s House is not a house of confusion,
So let not the line be broken
For it is the cable tow by which
Men are drawn from the lower
Up to the greater;-
An impossibility without it.

And each must work within their line of ordination
In perfect love and perfect trust,
With perfect harmony in all things,
But should they find that they fall out of harmony
With their line of ordination,
Then let him seek another, to be ordained of him
To be their new spiritual Father.

Let the Priesthood be a leadership of fact; not of fancy,
For those who have no following to lead,
Why are they in the Priesthood?

And so it is that they who lose or give away their following,
Or they who through inactivity have lost their power,
Or they who are not in harmony and love with their Spiritual Father;
Shall be retired from a rank to which entitled
Other than by leadership of men.

But this can only be done by he who ordained them,
For only those who give can take away,
Yet each High Priest is responsible that this is done.

Should any Fellow fain the Priesthood, and use it wisely and well,
The Gods have decreed that those who serve them
Shall prosper and grow in this life,
And shall gain eternal perfection
To be freed from the Wheel of Life,
And to become like unto the angels
In that they should be perfect.

For perfection is to be gained by love,
And there is no greater love than to
Lay down one’s life for his brethren
In their service and for their sake,
And the Father will reward them for
Their labour of love, because
He is not unjust.

BELTANE MAY DAY

THE BELLS STORY

Thank you for visiting our website, may your God or Goddess be with you.

Aura

Aura

An aura is said to be the visible magnetic energy (life force) that surrounds the body of all living things

It appears to mediums and many with clairvoyant vision as colours radiating from the body.

It is claimed that the colour of ones aura is an indication of ones wellbeing, the colour of Aurayour aura changes depending on you mental and physical state, we are said to have many colours that move along with us through our daily life. We have all from some time or other in our lives felt the static electrical energy leave our body to another person or object so why not believe in auras. Of course there will be sceptics that say all this aura business is a load of rubbish but that is just an opinion view all with an open mind I ask for when we close our minds to a certain subject it is an end of.

Below are a few colours that radiate from the body and the meanings if you are lacking this colour

GREEN:  Peace and harmony:   Indicating you to seek a closeness to nature walks, gardening, inner peace and correction of balance.

INDIGO:  Contemplation, Psychic abilities:  Indicating you to look within yourself
spiritually write down your thoughts, goals and where you are mentally at this time.

RED: Suggests a low ebb:  Your energy levels need lifting exercise, or it could be because you are feeling angry or uptight slow down, a tricky colour this one.

ORANGE: Stimulation of the social kind: Go out for a meal, live a little mix and enjoy life.

BROWN: This is the colour of the earth, psychological: Think more on how to solve every day issues.

BLACK:  This is a blank canvas: You are not allowing your true self to be portrayed: Relax more, listen to music allow the colourful world around you in.

WHITE: Spiritual energy: You may feel the world is on your shoulders: Seek out your inner beliefs.

VIOLET: A look at your diet: Check out your diet if you are leaving vital ingredients out this can reflect in your aura colour.

BLUE: Body harmony needs the right balance: We all need to recharge from time to time slow down a little.
YELLOW: Digestive processes: Try to think more positively in life.
Merry Part.

A Ritual for Interfaith Yuletide Sharing

yuletide sharing

A Ritual for Interfaith Yuletide Sharing interesting indeed

Many or most of us who practice in Wiccan and/or other Neo-pagan traditions have family members and friends of other faiths.

An enjoyable ritual that enables all to share the joy of the seasonal can be the making and blessing of a fragrant Yuletide Potpourri. A Ritual for Interfaith Yuletide SharingOffer a party on or near Winter Solstice. Serve hot mulled cider and cookies, and ask everyone who comes to bring ingredients for the potpourri: sprigs of various varieties of fragrant evergreen trees — pine, yew, spruce, cedar and juniper. Fresh herbs such as rosemary, sage, basil, thyme are good, and also spices such as cinnamon sticks and whole cloves. Dried apples or other dried fruits, nuts, small pinecones and winterberry can also be added for colour and texture. Provide a very large container (cauldron, dishpan, washtub) that all can gather around while breaking the ingredients into small pieces, mixing them into the container.

Begin by setting the intent, perhaps: 

We gather at the time of Winter Solstice, when the longest night of the year gives way to the waxing light. The ancients celebrated this time as the rebirth of the Sun, and it was considered a time of hope, promise and new beginnings. Let’s make a Yuletide seasonal potpourri together, and while we work and share our favourite holiday memories and also our hopes and wishes for the year to come, we can blend those joyful energies into the potpourri and also charge our own will to make this next year all we hope it can be. When we are finished, we’ll bless the potpourri together and each take some home where its fragrance will remind us of the hopes and wishes we have shared and what we plan to do to bring them into reality.

After the potpourri is complete, join hands around it and say something like this: 

Feel the energy of our sharing pass from hand to hand. See it in the eyes of others all around our circle as we join together in peace and joy and love. May our thoughts and energies surround and fill us, infusing that which we have created so that the feelings we share tonight carry forth to anyone not here whom we may give a gift of our Yuletide potpourri. Though we go from here in our separate ways, hold in your hearts the unity of sharing that it may be extended to others. Let’s share a moment of silent thanks to Divine Spirit for our many blessings. (Pause) As light returns to Earth, let Light be rekindled in our hearts and minds, and may we know and share the blessings of peace and love.

Whether working alone or with a group, let’s call upon the Sun and Venus, so prominent in the chart of Winter Solstice, for their most hoped for potential, that peace will prevail on Earth. The optimum time for this working would encompass the actual time of Winter Solstice, although the ritual can, of course, be done at other times, too.

A Ritual for Interfaith Yuletide SharingYou will need to create (or purchase) a large enough wreath to step through. This can be most any circular form, decorated as you choose with either fresh or artificial greenery. If working alone have at least twelve candles one to represent each sign of the zodiac. If you are working with a group, have candles in multiples of 12, all the way up to 360 for each degree of a circle. Candle luminaries can be made by putting little tea candles (the kind that come in tins) within small paper cups. These burn safely, even outdoors in moderate wind, as the metal holds the wax until it burns away.

Begin with a centering meditation and then cast sacred space in your usual way. After calling the Guardians of the Watchtowers, invoke the God and Goddess as Sun and Venus:

O Sun of bright new year I (we) call
Child of life and light
Shine peace throughout this land of ours
Bring wisdom with your might!

O Venus, come in love and peace
Star of dawn for all to see
Your light of Truth I (we) call within
Peace shall begin with me!

Then, as you say this next short verse, step through the Yule wreath; make your personal transition from the old year to the new: 

This night of new Light’s birthing
I (we) step through Yule wreath free
Cast off the old year, greet the new
With Light of Peace, so mote it be!

Now light your candles one at a time and place them in a circle.

If you have the space, you can build the circle of Light around you or your entire group. If you are working alone or only have the space of a table, make the circle on it. A symbol of Earth could be placed within (a map, a globe, a photo of Earth from space). A Ritual for Interfaith Yuletide SharingAs you place the candles, sing an appropriate song. A good one, familiar to many and available in many songbooks begins Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with me 1. The second line of verse one of the song continues: Let there be peace on Earth, the peace that was meant to be. Then the next two lines are Christian in wording, but can easily be changed slightly so that the words are generic to all spiritual paths. Here is a suggested change: In Spirit together, we are one family, Let us walk with each other in perfect harmony. The second verse is appropriate to all paths just as it was originally written.

After the circle of Light has been formed, other favourite traditions could be followed, such as the burning of the Yule Log, the blessing of sharing of cakes and beverages and also thoughts and experiences of the ritual. Following the closing of this rite, you will be allowing your candles to burn all the way down naturally, so be sure that they are safely placed and can be monitored for safety.

In closing, offer thanks to the Guardians and to Sun and Venus for this sacred night as you visualize the Light of Peace spreading in all directions outward from your circle all across the Earth, joining with other circles of Light in other places.

Believe that on this Winter Solstice you have been and will continue to be a significant force for peace!
