entering and grounding...

You step into a space lit by many candles. The air is misty with sacred incense. Haunting Celtic music plays softly. You take a deep breath, drawing in the sacred atmosphere.

You notice altars in the centres of the four walls and one in the middle of the room. There are lovely soft pillows along the walls, inviting people to sit.

You go first to the east wall. Nestled into the crook of the curving oak staircase is an altar draped in pale blue, bedecked with feathers, fragments of hatched robin eggs, an incense burner, and assorted bells and chimes. Blue, white, and yellow candles burn here. There is celestite geode sparkling in back. A potted Lavender grows here. You may wish to use the paper stacked here to write a prayer and leave it for the spirits of the Air...

On the south wall, beside the huge stone fireplace, is an altar draped in red. It holds many candles of different shapes and sizes. There is a snake skin on this altar and a dish of sand. A large desert rose stone sits on the altar. A potted aloe grows here. You may like to charge a candle and light it with a personal petition...

On the west wall, beneath the loving gaze of Quan Yin, the Reiki table has been draped with green cloth to become an altar. It holds a profusion of cherry blossoms. There are vials of sacred oils here...and chalices of different shapes and designs. A slice of rhodochrosite stalactite sits here, like a heart opening. Among the roses and peonies floating in a large crystal bowl, there is a Lotus, transplanted root and all. You may have a picture of an ancestor or loved one you wish to send love to....you are welcome to leave here.

On the north wall is an altar draped in brown. Candles of many earth shades burn here. It holds many rocks, some carved, some natural, and healing crystals. A potted Sage grows here. You may have a rock or crystal that you would like to have charged with a magical purpose; state your intent and leave it here.

The centre altar is draped in green for healing today. Silver and gold candles representing the Goddess and God sit beside a cauldron full of earth in the centre. To the east is a censor burning an incense of lavender and lemon; beside it is a pile of paper and pencils. A large white candle with swirls of gold burns in the south; beside it is a wand with a crystal tip and feathers of swan, raven, and owl hanging from it. There is a pile of hand-dipped candles of various colours beside it. In the west is a chalice of green glass with copper wire twined along the stem, branching out to hold the bowl like tree branches, and spreading over the base like roots. The water in it is scented with Hyssop. Sprays of different herbs are beside it to act as aspirgers. In the North is a dish of salt, and a single quartz point fifteen inches long. Other crystals and rocks cluster around it. Papers and pencils are available for writing.

You pay your respects and go to sit quietly to gather your thoughts and energies...take a moment to ground, to make your heart to heart connection with Mother Earth...and give into Her keeping any worries, irritations, anger or pain that you can lay aside for the next hour or two. Know that you can take them up again if you wish...but you could also ask Her to transform them into pure, clear life-energy if you are ready to relinquish them for good...

And we wait while the circle gathers...
