Day 6 Ritual to the Light: Embracing Infinity



Ritual of Contemplation and Lighting: Embracing Infinity


Purpose:

This ritual is designed to embrace the mystery and power of darkness before welcoming the guidance and illumination of light, symbolized by lighting a candle. It's a practice of preparation and trust for the journey ahead.


Preparation:

  • Choose a candle - This could be a Hanukkah or Advent candle, or any candle you have at home.

  • Find a quiet, comfortable space where you can perform this ritual undisturbed.

  • Set aside time for contemplation and focus.

Steps of the Ritual:

  1. Embracing the Darkness:

  • Sit in a comfortable position in a darkened room before your unlit candle.

  • Close your eyes and take a few deep, calming breaths to center yourself.

  • Contemplate the darkness around you. Feel its infinity, its depth, and its mystery.

  • Acknowledge the comfort in not knowing, in being present with the unknown that surrounds you. Embrace the power and potential that lies within this darkness.

  1. Lighting the Candle:

  • Slowly open your eyes and light your candle. Watch as the flame breaks the darkness, bringing a soft, warm light into the space.

  • Gaze into the flame. Observe its dance and the shadows it casts.

  1. Seeking Guidance from the Sacred Flame:

  • As you watch the flame, ask for its guidance. Request that this sacred fire illuminate your path with truth, resilience, and courage.

  • Trust in the journey that lies ahead, believing that each step will be guided and lit by this newfound light.

  1. Ritual of Preparation:

  • Reflect on the significance of these eight days of ritual. Understand that this time spent with the light is a preparation for what your soul will experience and deliver in the upcoming year.

  • With each day of lighting the candle, feel yourself infused with more light and faith. Let this light fortify your spirit.

  1. Affirmation of Faith:

  • Conclude the ritual by affirming your faith. Say or think "HAIMANUTA," the Aramaic word for faith, as a reminder of your trust in Alaha (Mother - Father God) and in yourself.

  1. Closing the Ritual:

  • Sit quietly for a few moments, absorbing the light and warmth of the candle.

  • When ready, gently extinguish the flame, carrying the light and guidance you've received in your heart.

Post-Ritual Reflection:

Consider journaling about your experience or simply spend some time in quiet contemplation, reflecting on the insights and feelings brought forth by this ritual. Remember that the light you've welcomed is a symbol of the guidance and clarity that will accompany you throughout the year.


Message for Today:

“They carried the ark of God on a new cart,...David and all the house of Israel were dancing before the Lord with all their might, with songs ...and tambourines....”

— 2 Samuel 6: 3-5

“Then Jephthah came to his home...and there was his daughter coming out to meet him with timbrels and dancing.”

— Judges 11: 34


Biblical drumming was used in the Desert Rose Traditions for going into Yesodic States of Consciousness and for specific Ceremonies. All Essene and Christ Lineage Ceremonies included Drumming, Chanting, Ecstatic Dancing, Sacred Light Language and Myrraphore Oil Activations.


We can all practice Biblical Drumming just as the Desert Rose Teachers did. Although there is a Mystery School tradition of specific drumming patterns to call on the different Angels and Light Beings, we can simply pick up our Drum with Holy Reverence and play a pattern we know well over and over, slowly and gently. Our worries and concerns start to fade. The pattern quietly leads us to Holy Lady Wisdom who is within us, and to the Light of the Creator.


Sometimes, we pick up our drum and let it play us, knowing we are in sacred Divine Union with Alaha. No words, just the Pulse of Light Creation.


Below is a video of a chant to embody the Divine Feminine Presence. You can sing along with me, a great time would be after your ritual.
