This spell enables us to practice in the security of our sacred space, before venturing out to the everyday world. It’s not so much a healing technique as an energising one. The closer we come to an understanding of the forces that we use, the less we need protection and the more we can become a source of energy for others
Casting Instructions for ‘A-Light Spell’
Anoint the candles from middle to bottom-then from middle to top. This is so you attain a balance of spiritual and physical energy. Place the candles in the holders on the floor in a circle about six feet in diameter.
Position in the circle, light the candles in a clockwise direction. Stand in the middle of the circle and draw the energy of the light towards you. Feel the energy as it seeps throughout the whole of your body, from your feet to your -mind. Allow the power to spill over in the crown of your head to fill the space around you.
Now, visualize this cocoon of light around -you gently radiating outwards to the edge of your circle of candles. When you feel ready, sit on the ground and allow the power of this light to settle back -within you. Ground yourself by crossing your body -with your hands in the form of the above figure, but do not lose the feeling of increased energy. Snuff out the candles in a clockwise direction, and use them only to replicate this technique until they are used up.
Gradually, as you become used to the feeling of increased energy, you need to discover that you are more able to deal with difficulties and also to become more dynamic in the everyday world. It will get easier to take the light in you not just within the circle of candles, and you may find that you perceive more ways in which you can help the world go round.
