and circle is cast or area is purified. This ritual is to be done to aid in sending someone to the Summerland. Full moon is best, but any moon phase will work. This rite can be done as soon as someone crosses, or years later when you feel that you are ready to release that spirit. It can also be done if you have just found out that someone has crossed (no matter how long the time of the actual crossing has been compared to the time you find out), or if you simply were unable to make it to the funeral. This rite aids you in the healing of a loss, it is meant to help you say the things you never got to say and "know" that they will hear you and in many cases speak back to you.

You will need:

1 pack Matches

2--White Taper candles

1--Taper candle of their favorite color

Incense--I recommend Spirit or Sandalwood for stick incense, for granular try Friendship or Astral, But in all honesty anything pleasing to you will work

* Something of theirs if possible or something to symbolize them

* Something special to symbolize the Goddess

You will first set up a small altar, with two white candles in the back positioned one each corner side by side. In front of the candles you will place the incense burner. On the left side you will place your symbol of the Goddess. On the right side you will place the candle of their favorite color, then in front of it all place the persons personal item or the item that symbolizes them.

See below for set up:

White Candle..........................................White Candle

.................................Incense..................................

.....................................Burner...................................

Goddess,..................................................Candle for person,

Symbol ......................................................who crossed....

...........................Persons personal item.............................

....................... Or item to symbolize them..........................

Once this is set up do the following, light the two white candles saying;

"Lord and Lady of Light, I, your name, now humbly come into your presence."

Now light the incense, as it burns walk deosil (clock-wise) around the circle, saying:

"Mother of All, Creatress

Father of Life, Bringer of Death

Undines, Fire Elementals, Fairies and Sprites,

Heed the words of a Child of the Light.

I come before you to ask that you aid the way of one who has crossed over.

Make, person's name, transition to the next level safe, easy, and pain free."

Next light the candle of their favorite color, saying the following:

"The name of the one who has walked through the veil and journeyed on that ancient path is, their full name. They were and are my, (identify their role as many as you wish to honor, i.e friend, heart brother or sister and so on)"

Now take the time to tell the Lady and Lord about the person who has crossed over. Talk about your memories both good and bad; speak of how they influenced your life and the bonds that you made together. It's ok to become very emotional at this time, pour your heart out. Say all that fills your heart. Tell the Lord and Lady why you wish them to especially look out over this loved one. Once you have finished and your heart feels lighter, you are ready to move on.

Pick up the candle of their favorite color and place it on the left side of the altar, along side the Goddess symbol. Take a few minutes (about 13 heartbeats) and say the following;

"Goddess I pray that you place, their name, into the hands of the Father. That they may dwell with Him until they are reborn and renewed. That they may seek out Your wisdom and dwell in Your Unconditional Loving Light. I pray that the eternal cycle continue. That, their name, ascends to those planes, that may be needed to complete his/her souls development. Send them my eternal love and caring. May Your love aid us both in meeting again in the Summerland, whence comes my time to walk the long path.

I ask of the Mother to cleanse my heart of the pain of this loss, after I have mourned my loss of a physical connection and grieved, as I may need. I ask that She help me to remember that the Circle of Life, Death, and Rebirth continues. I ask the Father to aid me in learning the lessons of Love on all levels and of Life at this painful time. I implore Him to teach me strength, that I may meet my passing with dignity and acceptance and understanding.

Strength I beseech of thee both, at this time to aid me to continue to grow and face life in a loving and spirited way, even though their name is no longer physically here to share this with me.

Yet let me be content in the knowledge that on the higher spiritual plane their name grows and thrives. May I rest knowing that there is no final end to that part of us, that very best part of us, that holds our true essence of life!"

While their candle continues to burn, sit and visualize them stepping up to a beautiful portal and turning to speak with you. "See" their astral essence moving on to all the etheric levels, as we are all meant to do. If need be for yourself you can communicate with them at this time. Tell them all you need to say, and LISTEN to what they may tell you. Wish them Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Tell them that you release their spirit and will not hold them back, bound to this earthly plane by your need to keep them here with you. Then Kiss them or hug them, and allow them to enter the lighted gate that opens to the Summerland.

Upon completing your visualization, if their candle is still burning, allow it to burn a bit longer then put it out.

Say the following after the candle is out;

"All that has gone on here tonight for Your Full Name and Their Full Name, was done in love, trust, respect and honor. Thank you Goddess and God for your intercession and understanding. I release any ties I have that may bind this spirit to this physical world and look forward to our seeing each other again when I too am called home. As it has been done, So Mote It Be!"

***********************************

Banish your circle, if you cast a complete circle. If the candles are still burning snuff them out, put out your incense. Clean up and put away your items. You may wish to store your items in a special box for memories or you can get rid of them, what ever feels right to you. Your Soul Sending rite is done.

Blessings and healings to you all, Lady Wolfen Mists
