I got the idea for this ritual from Gregg Braden on his show “Missing Links,, Season 1 Episode 7.” He tells a story of a Native American asking him to go with him to “pray for rain”, they live in northern New Mexico where there has not been any rain in quite some time. When they reach his friend’s Medicine Wheel his friend steps inside of it for a few minutes and then comes out asking if Mr. Braden is ready to go to lunch. Mt. Braden is a little confused and asks his friend “David”, “I thought we were coming here to pray for rain.” To which “David” replies, “I was taught to see things are they would be when the rain fell. I could feel the mud squish between my toes coming out of my pleubo, to smell the cleaner air, to see things turning green and the crops in the fields growing. If we pray for something that is happening right now we get nothing but if we can see and ask for what it will be like after it rains than the rains will come.”
We are living in very uncertain times for all parts of our lives except the spiritual one. This is a time when we need to step up and use our spirituality and magickal abilities to help ourselves and others. The intention for the ritual in this Esbat gathering is to ask for healing mind, body, and spirit for everyone including yourselves anywhere upon Mother Earth and for Mother Earth Herself. Please try to keep your mind focused not on what is happening now but how we see things at the end of this COVID-19 virus. Yes, some things are hard to picture on a grand scale so keep it simple and see how you, your loved, and friends came through this virus strong and healthy. See you and/or your loved ones, and/or friends back to work. See all of you gathered together having a party of some kind to celebrate – remember in this age of being able to connect with people anywhere in the whole you could even do a Skype conference call party (Skype allows 50 people to be connected to each other at the same time).
So, for a little while at least set your worries and stress aside and join us in this Esbat celebration of how each of our personal lives will be at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. The song I picked May The Circle Be Open is to remind us we may not be in a circle together all the time but there are ties that still bind us together so we are never truly all alone. We are going to do a healing drumming circle than at the end we will meditate for 2 minutes. Then anyone that wants to will have a chance to share their fears or stresses or where they see themselves and family at the end of the pandemic. There will possibly be a time limit set for each person sharing time depending on how many people join us in this gathering.
What You Need:
1 large white candle (that you can burn for 1 hour every day for 1 week. If you feel you want to keep lighting the candle after the first week then that is what you should do just make sure your candle is large enough for the duration you want to keep lighting it.)
Correct size holder for your candle
Your favorite Essential Oil for dressing the candle after engraving it
A device you can listen to the song (watch the video if you want to)
Something sharp to engrave you candle (a knife, your Atheme, a toothpick or a pin of some kind)

I call to Archangel Raphael to reside in the Watchtower of the East to help protect those in this circle and when we leave it from any type of negativity.
I call to Archangel Michael to reside in the Watchtower of the South to help protect those in this circle and when we leave it from any type of negativity.
I call to Archangel Gabriel to reside in the Watchtower of the West to help protect those in this circle and when we leave it from any type of negativity.
I call to Archangel Uriel to reside in the Watchtower of the North to help protect those in this circle and when we leave it from any type of negativity.
I invoke Goddess Sirona (1 of the healing Goddess of the Celts) and God the Dagda (Celtic God of fertility, agriculture, life, and death.) to walk this circle with me three times three. To take us to a place that is not a place and an out of time as we know it. I bid you reside in our circle to help give strength and power to our work here.
Please click on this link to start the song setting your intention(s) of where you and those you care about will be feeling and doing after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed while listening to the song.
Now take approximately 5 minutes to write your intention(s) down on the piece of paper – How and Where you see yourself and those you care about feeling and doing once the danger of the virus is gone.
Next, inscribe the names or initials of the people on the paper you are doing this ritual for. When you are done with that take a small drop as needed of your favorite essential oil start at the bottom of the candle in one motion smear the oil to the top of the candle. Turn the candle clockwise and again apply the essential oil, repeat these steps until you come to where you put your first line of essential oil overlap the first and last applications.
Now light your candle. Burn the paper with the candle while visualizing how everyone included on the candle lives will be at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic in whatever country or state you all live in. Repeat this spell/prayer three times while the paper is burning: (If you feel a word or some words need to be changed to fit how you would say this spell or prayer you can do that as this is your plea and thanksgiving to your deity)
Sirona we ask for the health for those we have written here is strong and unaffected by COVID_19. Sirona we thank you that none we asked you to watch over became sick
the Dagda we ask that you keep us working from home or where we are employed or go to school. the Dagda we thank you for taking us through this time with being employed and/or in school that none of us lost anything we needed for home and hearth.
I see those on my candle as still being healthy, employed, and now able to go on with our daily lives. As we mourn with those far and wide who lost someone to this pandemic.
So Mote It Be (OR However you end your spell or prayer
Written by Lady Beltane
Kwan Yin, Sirona, Ancient powers of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth,
Come to (person’s name) at their hearth.
Help heal whatever is keeping them down
That they might feel more like getting up and moving around.
Repeat spell three times and end it with So mote it be or however you seal your spellcasting.
I wrote this that you can use this spell for yourself or others. I also use it to empower a large green jar candle so if I need some healing help I just light it while saying, “Candle burning bright, release your powe with all its might.” Repet this three times.
Gather around Brother and Sisters for us to combine our positive energy to help Lady Abyss regain her health.
At 6:00 PM CT on Friday, June 8, 2018, I would like everyone to light a green or white candle, the size of it does not matter.
After your candle is lit stare at the base of its flame while concentrating on sending positive energy and healing to Lady Abyss. Do this meditation for a minimum of 10 minutes. Then put the candle out. Relight it every day at the same time and meditate with it as above until the candle has completely burned down. Take the leftover wax and bury it in Mother Earth asking her to also send her positive energy and grounding to Lady Abyss.
Also, remember the great daily fundraisers WOTC are doing for Lady Abyss medicine that costs $768.00 per bottle. They are offering some beautiful and useful items ar a large discount.

Violet Healing Spell
White yarn or string
Fresh Violets (whole with stems in holder or vase)
This is best done when the moon is full, but you can do it whenever you feel it necessary.
Light the candle and fill the small vase with water.
Place the freshly cut violets in the vase and say a chant, focusing on the well-being of the person and the healing of their ailment.
Cut a heart out of the purple paper and write the name of the person on one side, and a short but heartfelt “Get Well” message on the other side.
Poke a small hole in the top right side of the heart and thread the white string through it, tie it, and attach it to the vase.
Give the little vase of violets to the target person and await their recovery.
A White Candle
2-4 Inch String
6 Inch Square of Green Fabric
Iris or Orris Root
Dried Chamomile Or Daisy
A White Ribbon
Write your name on the candle while saying:
“Fresh and clean, with flame so pure,
My old life is now obscure”
Visualise in vivid detail what you expect from your new life and see new opportunities unfolding.
Cut the string in half, letting the pieces fall to the ground. Place them on the cloth while saying:
“Remove your boundaries, Terminus.
Liberate me, Libertus”
Place the key on the cloth while saying:
“Carna, come unlock your doors,
A new beginning, I implore”
Place the Iris or Orris in the cloth and say:
“Iris (or Orris), help me cross the bridge.
Janus, give me what I wish”
Place the daisy or chamomile in the cloth and say:
“Freya, make all fresh and new.
Do now what I ask of you”
Gather the edges of the cloth together and tie them with the ribbon to form a pouch.
As you knot the ribbon say:
“A brand new life, I start today.
I seal my old life out – away.
I now embrace what come to me.
In growth and opportunity”
Let the candle burn down, then carry the pouch on your person or in your purse of pocket for as long as you feel you need it.
After dark, write down on the piece of paper what ailment you want to heal. Draw a circle of light, and call in the elements. Light tht two candles an dedicate them to the Goddess and God:
Knot Healing Spell
This involves tying and untying the string.
Tie seven knots in a string
Visualize the illness and suffering as you tied the initial knots (you are not wishing the illness – in fact the opposite. You are transferring the illness into the knot)
Make it into a bracelet for the patient
Untie one knot each day – visualizing the relief as the knots are untied, as the illnesses negative energy is allowed to dissipate into the atmosphere.
On the last day, unravel the thread and throw everything into running live water, flowing away from the patient’s location.
SIMPLE CRYSTAL HEALING SPELL
–3 candles- 2 light blue & 1 white
–Allspice & Rosemary (equal parts each) or a Healing type incense
–photo or paper with name of recipient a small quartz crystal
Place the candles on your altar or workspace in a semi-circle with the white candle between the two blue ones. Place your incense burner above the white candle. Place the person’s name in the center of the layout, with the quartz crystal on top. Light the incense then the candles. Center yourself and inhale the incense as you think of all ill health dispelling from the person and instead being replaced by healing energy, much as the air is filled with the smoke of the incense.
Gather your healing energy and when you feel ready, release the energy, directing it through the crystal and to the recipient who’s name or photo is beneath it. Give the recipient the crystal to carry as a charm for continued good health.
MAGIC HEALING STONE
What you will need: any stone, a green candle and a white one
To make the healing stone: take an average stone from your yard or anywhere else (if you have no yard or they all really suck) or you can purchase one like a tiger’s eye.
Once you’ve got one cast your circle, call your quarters. Do an altar devotion then cleanse consecrate, and empower it. Instill the flame of a green candle and a white one to empower it with healing magic and purify it.
While doing this hold your pentacle over it and say as many healing spells as you know. Then pour holy water on it and you’re done.
MAGIC HEALING WATER-HOLED STONES
Take a holed stone (naturally holed stones often found in or beside running water or the ocean) and put it in a vessel of clear water. Remove it and the water is possessed of healing vibrations which can be used in healing baths, to anoint a healing charm, and so on. Perform this on the New, waxing, or full moon with the focus on healing and getting better. Place the bowl of water with stone out under the moon to collect Her energies and blessings. Say something along to lines of:
Lady Luna, Bless this water with your healing energies.
Then leave it outside under the light of the moon for nine minutes, nine being a healing number. You might also sit before the water and meditate over it, collecting and projecting healing energies into it. Then bring it indoors, store it in a glass container such as a mason jar and use.
You could also drop a bit of blue food coloring into it and keep it in a vial to carry as a talisman. Use some of it in bathing waters along with a healing herb or oil. You could also anoint your forehead with it or afflicted are and then go deep into a meditative state concentrating on healing the disease/illness/problem.
