It all matters. That someone turns out the lamp, picks up the windblown wrapper, says hello to the invalid, pays at the unattended lot, listens to the repeated tale, folds the abandoned laundry, plays the game fairly, tells the story honestly, acknowledges help, gives credit, says good night, resists temptation, wipes the counter, waits at the yellow, makes the bed, tips the maid, remembers the illness, congratulates the victor, accepts the consequences, takes a stand, steps up, offers a hand, goes first, goes last, chooses the small portion, teaches the child, tends to the dying, comforts the grieving, removes the splinter, wipes the tear, directs the lost, touches the lonely, is the whole thing. What is most beautiful is least acknowledged. What is worth dying for is barely noticed.
Invite a healing deity to join you, for a broken heart ask for a love goddess such as Isis and say “great Goddess Isis please join me as i purge my heart of pain. please release me from this hurt so that i can build a stronger relationship in the future.”
Light the black candle and focus on your pain and as the feelings consume you write it all out on the parchment paper. Light the parchment from the candle and drop it into the cauldron while saying “as this parchment burns, so burn my pain and sorrow. I release them to the universe and free myself from the suffering.”
Light the white candle, feel white light descend from the heavens or the moon and fill you with love and peace, say “Lady, i am healed. The pain is gone. the suffering is no more. I am ready to go forth into the world with peace and love.”
Release the goddess by saying “Great Goddess Isis, thank you for joining me and bringing me renewal. My heart is at peace. Farewell and blessed be.”
Release the quarters and open the circle. Let both candles burn all the way down.
