Editor’s note: This is a candle meditation and centering practice. If you can, light a candle and place it in front of you. Sit with the candle and its flame for a few minutes becoming aware of your breath and the flame and your connection to it. Then, read these lines slowly outloud to yourself. If you cannot light a candle, close your eyes and light an imaginary one.
I will My Soul,
I concentrate upon the Whole.
The candle’s glow,
Desire to Know,
The flicker/focus ebb and flow.
Flicker, Quicker, magic spell
Harm me not,
Health fill my well.
Blending, Bending, mend my skin,
Cool the fever that
I hunger for The One to take me higher,
Pulse magic into mind-transforming feat,
Divinity delineates The Power,
Creator and creation journey-meet.
I hunger for the God and Goddess blessing,
Almighty Father lead me to The Day,
Great Mother bathe me in Your vision’s healing,
Unite my tri-part soul in Heaven’s Way.
I hunger for the knowledge locked inside me,
Forgotten in the troubles of the night,
The bounty of the harvest is upon me,
I revel in the nourishment of light.
