Candle Ritual-Dedicated Spellworking
Event Details: It's that time of year again. Baltimore Reclaiming invites you to our annual candle dedication spellworking ritual.
As the light begins, slowly but perceptibly, to return, Imbolc is a traditional time for initiations and dedications. It's a wonderful time to get intentional about the year ahead. Over the time of the deep dark, we've been dissolving and dreaming, perhaps getting brief flashes or sweet foretastes of what's to come for us.
Now, as the light grows, we crystallize our vision into a short, pithy phrase and a set of images, and proudly declare and charge them together.
Our ritual intention will be to witness, support, and celebrate each other as we each dedicate to our work of the coming year.
To form your dedication, you might ask yourself questions such as: Where's your passion right now? Your growing edge? The thing you're finally going to do, or stop doing? What are you committed to learning, becoming, beginning, focusing on, or developing a deeper relationship with? For maximum clarity and effectiveness, you'll want to formulate your dedication into a short, pithy phrase (no more than six words, and ideally three or less) that can serve as power-packed seed.
The next step is to represent your dedication in imagery that speaks to all parts of your Self. Working with the growing light, and Brigid's flame, this is a candle-working spell. Bring to the ritual a candle decorated to represent your dedication. Generally we use 7 day candles -- the kind in glass jars -- with the glass painted, collaged, written on, glittered,
etc., but you may bring any kind of candle you like that represents your working. Personally, I usually do collage, but there have been some beautiful ones done in paint, glitter, fabric, and metallic markers.
In sacred space, we will each declare our dedication to be witnessed and affirmed and celebrated by the group, and light our candles. Then we'll raise some energy to empower all of the workings. At the end of the ritual, we'll blow out the candles, take them home, and relight them to finish the
spell. Some folks burn them all at once, over the next seven days (I find it actually usually takes about five and a half) to seal the spell. Others burn them throughout the year, as they work with their dedications.
