ELEMENTS OF MAGIC
CLASS 6 - SPIRIT
CREATING SACRED SPACE
Between classes and homework we have been guided through creating sacred space 10+ times. Now that we are approaching the later part of the course, attempt to do your Grounding, Purification and Casting from memory, instead of relying on reference.
If you find yourself needing a hint, however, just click the " + " drop down.
TRANCE: Rainbow Induction
Imagine that you're floating in a red sea, which is the perfect temperature.
Flood yourself with red, sinking gently. Notice that you can breathe easily here, creature of water.
Breathe deeply and sink into orange. Smelling and tasting orange.
Sink into a yellow sea. Held by yellow, filled with the sensation of yellow.
Continue into a green sea, deeper now, drifting. Washing over you inside and out.
Down into blue. Resting. Held by blue waters and full of blue sensation.
Breath then into an indigo sea, the darkest blue of the sky between the midwinter stars. he colour darkness would be if darkness could shine. Become this colour, lit up by the dark light of the Otherworld.
Down into an ultraviolet sea, lit by the inner light not mortal eye can see.
Touch bottom now, standing in the center of your place of power.
When you have finished with your trancework, always remember to return by following the same pathway out which you had used to enter.
Arrange for some undisturbed time, go outside and, if you haven't already, create sacred space.
-- (if unable/unsafe to do so outside, case a moving circle indoors before you go out)
-- (if in a public place, please take precautions for your safety)
-- (consider doing the following sitting with your back against the trunk of a tree)
Relax. Breath deeply. Feel gravity pulling you down, cradling you, and open all of your senses to the earth beneath you.
Simply rest in the fact of being utterly supported. She's not going anywheres without you.
Notice whatever images and emotions arise, and allow them to release on an easy breath.
Say "By the earth which is her body."
Create Sacred Space
Read a poem to your deity of choice (or read the Charge of the Goddess aloud again if not right for you at this time)
Make offering to your deity
Return through reverse of Rainbow Induction).
Journal about your experiences
(optional) Play with energy (reference exercises taught in class)
(optional) Witch’s Walk
Open the circle.
Next class, students will be leading a ritual for the class. Make sure to review some of the past weeks' material if you need to brush up!
