Envision this room (or area) being surrounded by a bright, white light as the circle
is being marked. ( The priestess circles the room clockwise three times with Frankincinse, incense or sage)
INVOKING OF THE ELEMENTS
Blessed be the spirit of air
Illumination through Creative Communication
the Mind is Awareness
Perception in all Philosophy
Focus for Peace in Chaos
Blessed be the spirit of fire
In innocence I am born
In faith do I grow
In strength am I purified
In Protection I walk.
Blessed be the spirit of water
Feelings are but Tiny Trickles
and emotions gentle brooks leading to the great rivers
of Inner Knowing and Dreams.
All are pulled to the Deep Ocean Mother
by the Lady of the Healing Lights.
Blessed be the spirit of earth
With Patience do I seek sacred knowledge and wisdom.
With Practicality do I prosper.
With Ceremony do I learn earth wisdom.
With ritual do I support my soul's growth.
With Symbols of Earth do I teach.
You who are the Queen of the Gods,
the lamp of night,
the creator of all that is wild and free;
Mother of woman and man;...
Descend, I pray,
with Your Lunar ray of power upon our circle here.
The time of the full moon is when we should examine our lives and try to improve
them. Write a wish (or wishes) that you want accomplished in your life this year and seal the envelope. Open this envelope
on the next Samhain to see how your wishes have come true.
CANDLE POWER CHANT
Candle of Power, Candle of Might
Create my desires here on this night...
(repeat chant for several moments as participants stare into the flames of the
candles and imagine their wishes being fulfilled.)
Wondrous Lady of the Moon
You who greets the dusk with silvered kisses;
Mistress of the night and of all magics,
who rides the clouds in blackened skies and spills light upon the cold Earth;
O Lunar Goddess, Crescented-One, Shadow maker and shadow breaker;
Revealer of mysteries past and present; Puller of seas and ruler of women;
All-wise Lunar Mother, I greet Your celestial jewel at the waxing of it's powers
With a rite in Your honor.
I pray by the Moon.
RELEASING OF THE ELEMENTS:
Depart in peace, spirit of earth
thank you for your wisdom.
Depart in peace, spirit of water
thank you for your healing
Depart in peace, spirit of fire
thank you for your protection.
Depart in peace, spirit of air
thank you for your inspiration.
The Circle is open but unbroken.
So Mote it be!
