SACRED SPACE - DISCUSSION

As we being to work together I want us to examine the basic tools of ritual so that we can find and utilize common language in how create and work as a group.

 1.           What does sacred space mean to you?

2.            What elements need to be present for sacred space to be created?

3.            How do you typically create and close sacred space?

4.            What is the purpose of sacred space?

 5.           Coming together on how we will create sacred space.

DISCUSSION: MEDITATION

What is meditation and why do we do it?

SUNSET MEDITATION

1.            Close Your Eyes

2.            Take a deep breath and exhale.

3.            Take a slower breath and exhale a little more slowly.

4.            Take a very deep breath and exhale very slowly.

5.            Relax your muscles sequentially from head to feet. This helps to break the connection between stressful thoughts and a tense body. Starting with your forehead, become aware of tension as you breathe in. Let go of any obvious tension as you breathe out. Go through the rest of your body in this way, proceeding down through your eyes, jaws, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, chest, upper back, middle back and midriff, lower back, belly, pelvis, buttocks, thighs, calves, and feet.

6.            Breathe slowly and naturally bringing to mind the sunset as you exhale.

7.            The sun is setting slowly above you and will gradually begin to melt into the top of your head filling you with warm, bright light.

8.            Feel the light sinking into your body, filling your muscles, your, mind, heart, soul, every nook and cranny of your being with brightness.

9.            Now that the light is within you focus on that inner light and relax, when other thoughts come to mind, simply say, "oh well" and cast them aside returning your focus to that light which is all encompassing, that light which is love and divinity.

10.          Now hear this phrase and repeat it softly within: I am the light, I am the love, I am the spirit, I am within and without, I am a part of all living things, I am the universe.'

11.          Now draw a very long and deep breath, exhaling very slowly.

12.          Again, draw a long breath and exhale slowly.

13.          One more time draw a breath and exhale.

14.          Open Your Eyes

SPELL CONSTRUCTION: DISCUSSION

Words have power. All words, whether written or spoken, are alive with the energy we give them. Words are a pure act of creation that is born within us. 

 A spell that you construct yourself is powerful, because it allows you to focus on your wish and create a resonant energy.

 1.           The first step in creating a spell is to decide upon your goal.

2.            Once one is clear and you have focused on your goal, you will be ready to construct your spell.

3.            As your spell begins to take physical form on paper, it also starts to manifest itself in the unseen realm of spirit. When you write a spell you are in effect writing a letter to the divine spirit.

4.            At this moment true magic begins.

5.            Once you have completed your spell you are ready to speak it.

6.            Once finished either dispose of the spell in sacred space or store it with your magical tools.
