Spheres Of Light

FULL MOON (27th November 2004)
FREEDOM
(Ritual written by Gwyneira Morgana)


INTENT

With our gathering taking place within the height of the full moon we are blessed with an opportunity to draw upon the fullness of its light, beauty and power. Reflecting to us a Sagittarian Sun through the lense of Gemini, we have the opportunity to experience, to learn from, a pure experience of freedom.
Being the circle closest to midsummer, we also have the opportunity to connect with the Oak King - the embodiment of summer, fullness and brightness. At this time then, we are able to harness the freedom offered by this special night, but to share it by sending blessings to individuals and groups that may be on our hearts and minds.
We bring together then freedom and blessing by setting our intent as:
To experience freedom
To learn from our experience
of freedom
And to share this experience
through blessings for the world

CIRCLE CASTING
After smudging, each person enters circle,
finding a space in which they are comfortable. All then join hands and sing:

We are a circle
A living circle
With no beginning,
And never ending

And then honour this land in song...

Gundrah A oo noo Nungeenah tya
Gundrah Lah
oo oo noo
Yahma koora,
yahma koora
Nungeena tya
Yahma koora

Invocation:

channeling then the collected
energy into the waters. All can take it in turns to come up and partake of the waters. Once the waters have been drunk, all can take a moment to feel the energy of the horse
Goddess flowing through them.
Feeling that energy flowing freely, all can move if they wish, singing as follows:

WE ARE ALIVE
We are alive, as the Earth is alive,
We have the power to create our freedom
We have the courage, we are the healers
Like the Sun we shall rise
We have the courage, we are the healers
Like the Moon we shall rise

Once all feel they have sufficient awareness of the energy that is flowing through them, all can take a moment to reflect, and consider  who they would like to share that energy with as a blessing. Then, writing the name of the individuals or groups on the pieces of card provided, these can be tied to our Oak King. which will be burned at Lughnasadh.
The following song can be sung while this is done:

CHILDREN OF THE DIVINE
We are children of the
divine,
We are children of love.
We are children of the
divine,
and we work on the earth plane now.
Blessings to our mother the earth,
Blessing to our father the sky,
Blessings to the babes of our womb,
As we work on the earth plane now.
