A Prayer to Brigid to End Human Trafficking

An estimated 40 million victims around the globe are enslaved through human trafficking.  Although the number is staggering, we are not powerless.  The greatest threat to any establishment is when we come together as one voice and say: “Enough!”  Please join me in calling upon the Great Goddess Brigid, a protector and healer of women and children, to assist us in bringing this nightmare to an end.

I encourage you to dedicate a white candle on your altar to this endeavor.  Light it and recite this prayer as often as you feel inspired to do so.  From the bottom of my heart, I truly thank you! – M.

Brigid of Sacred Wells,
Lady of the Fiery Arrow,
Protector of Women and Children –
Please teach us, with your power over
The Element of Water,
To be more connected to one another,
As the currents of your streams and tributaries
Connect all Life on the Planet.

Grant us the patience of the Tides.
Help us to see each other with compassion –
To set aside our differences,
And to heal one another’s suffering
By knowing when to be silent
And when to rise.

Bestow us with wisdom
As deep as the Oceans.
Allow what has been kept in darkness
To be brought to the Surface
In your divine and perfect timing.

Inspire us to act justly when action is needed,
And calm us to stillness when listening is required.
Set our course on these troubled Waters
With compass and stone –
With our Intuition as our guide,
And our Senses to ground us.

May you watch over those in trouble.
Give us Sight that they may be found,
And show them the way to safety.
Bathe their wounds in your Holy Wells.
Touch them where they need Healing,
And bring Peace to us all.

We thank you, Great Goddess.
We thank you.

Forgiveness Ritual

One thing that will definitely stand in the way of manifesting what we want on the physical plane is holding a grudge.  I get it: You’ve been wronged.  It was unjust.  It hurt.  You want the other person to acknowledge their mistake and say they are sorry – or pay with a little pain of their own…  But it is a rare moment, indeed, that people will take ownership of someone else’s (your) feelings and lamenting over the upset only acts as an energetic block in that area of your life.

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” – Buddha

You know this.  You know that forgiveness is not consent for the mistreatment and that forgiveness has to do with freeing yourself from the pain.  But sometimes it feels as if we just can’t let go.  We replay the abuse over and over again in our minds and struggle with shutting off our negative thoughts and feelings.  In such situations, ritualized forgiveness may help finally release you from the agony.

For this ritual you will need:
* Writing utensil and paper
* Purple chime candle or tea light
* Tranquility or Be Still essential oil (or similar blend)
* Matches
* Fireproof container

Schedule a quiet time when you will not be interrupted.  Write out a letter to the person who hurt you.  (It is preferable to do this by hand.)  Allow yourself to go ahead and let out whatever you feel you need to.  Be angry.  Cry.  Anything goes.

When finished with the letter, fold it nine times, making the folds away from yourself each time.

Prepare the candle by dressing with the essential oil.  Ignite the candle and hold the paper over the flame, saying:

I forgive [person’s name].
I give my pain to the purple flame;
I release it and feel it no longer.
[Or whatever similar wording resonates with you.]

Ignite the paper and allow it to burn in a fireproof container.

Sit and meditate in front of the candle, imagining that as the wax melts, so does your anger and pain.  This spell should be seen through to total completion, allowing the candle to melt all the way down until it extinguishes itself, so it is encouraged to select a smaller-sized candle.  Once the spell is complete, scatter the ashes at a crossroads or in a cemetery.

It is my sincere hope that all who read this find peace. ❤
