This weekend, let’s do a symbolic group ritual to try and bring hope and healing to our current global situation.
Wherever you are, all you need is:
- 1 white candle
- Carving tools / toothpick
- Candle holder
Begin on Saturday: Carve a white candle with the word “HOPE”.
Let the candle rest by a windowsill (or outdoors) all night, where it will be blessed by the New Moon as a symbol of change and as an offering to the Goddess (Yin energy).
On Sunday morning, place the candleholder and white candle on your altar. Light it and let it burn as you meditate. This will be our offering to the God (Yang energy).
Think of the essential workers, the sick, the fearful, the anxious, the children, the healthcare professionals, and the currently unemployed.
Then visualize a light, a compass or guide that points towards the exit: Peace, Joy, Healing, Hope.
Let the candle burn completely throughout Sunday (practice Candle Safety) sending healing and hope to the world.
For those who meditate with music, here’s a beautiful 4-hour meditation session by Woke Nation, as recommended by @kasie.
