So a call for some healing prayers went out.
I am getting over a very busy week-end at work, and the tail end of a nasty cold/flu that has the Fabulous Jonathan in its clutches… so I knew I wasn’t up to some big production… but I am also appreciating that sometimes it is the simplest act of magick that can be the most powerful.
So I dusted off a blue 7 day pillar candle with my own intricate/inarticulate designs scrawled in silver ink on it’s glass. I had prepared it a while back, and used it a few times but was holding in it reserve for no reason I could identify… I find myself doing that more and more with candles and various home made oils and carved emergency candles and other bits and pieces around the house.
I drank some of the blessed water I keep on hand in the fridge, refilling and re-blessing it daily, or sometimes many times a day; Refilling it and blessing it in my way before turning to the work at hand. I lit the candle, and began to pray…
“Healing of Body, Healing of Spirit, Healing of Mind…”
I started with myself and my beloved and let my prayers/mantra work its way out from there… I breathed in and out, letting the light of the candle flame dance before my closed eyes, names were named, where I had them, and for a brief while I lost time and awareness of everything except the sense of connection and love flow around, over, into, and through me as the mantra and the magick worked themselves through me.
“For all those in need, For all those whose lives I touch, Healing of Body, Healing of Spirit, Healing of Mind.”
Over and again the words, and names, played themselves until they were played out…
The act of blessing, is in itself a blessing. The casting of a healing, is healing. Try it and see.
