Over last few months I have found myself focused on so many projects (check them out at the end of the meditation), I hardly know the direction I am headed. Luckily, I have a lot of support to help me through this and despite everything I am doing, I still manage to keep my spiritual connections strong. I may not be doing as much magickal work as I feel I should be, but Hekate has always been the one to assure me that I am on the right path. She has understood that my everyday devotionals some times gets puts aside for something else. From the beginning, she has shown me that as long as I acknowledge her in my everyday tasks, I am good with her. I found this to be very different from what I was used too. Basically, what she has told me was “I have put you on this path, and it is your turn to do the work to continue, the time will come when you can attend to me.” Don’t get me wrong, It is not that I have not done anything spiritually or magickally over the last few months, I have just slowed down from where I was before. One way that I attempted to stay on a routine is by holding ritual with my group. Unfortunately, the last few times we have had to cancel thanks to the crazy weather here in Pennsylvania.
This guided meditation was from the last full moon ritual that I wrote for the group. I had wanted to share it early but I wanted to wait until I had done it with my group, well that never happened so here it is…
Items needed before you begin: A silver bowl filled with water, Pen and Paper, Candle dedicated to the Goddess Hekate and your favorite incense for meditation.
Before you begin light incense and the candle dedicated to the Goddess Hekate.
Think about the direction you would like your path to take you, whisper this into the bowl of water, take notice of how your breath ripples the water.
Close your eyes, make yourself comfortable and relax. Breath in deeply through your nose, filling your belly, hold for a count of three and exhale through your mouth. Repeat 3x.
Feel the room around you, acknowledge the glow of Hekate’s candles and scent of incense.
As you breath in, begin to visualize the smoke of the incense circling you, surrounding you. It begins to create a bubble around you. This bubble will protect your body on your journey.
The smoke begins fill the room, like a white mist rolling in, becoming more and more dense. Reflecting on the mist is cool white light.
Slowly the light grows brighter and with it the mist starts to disperse, fading away and leaving you standing on rocky terrain, in front of a cave mouth. It is night but everything is cast in a cool blue light. In search of its source you look up and see the moon in full glory. Returning back to your surroundings, to the right of the cave opening is a white statue of Hekate, she is bearing two torches and looking up at the moon. At the statues feet is a large silver bowl of liquid that holds a complete reflection of the full moon.
Wanting to take a closer look at the bowl, you approach the statue. Within, seconds a young girl wearing a white and gold tunic appears out of no where. She points to the bowl and tells you that this is where your journey will begin and where it will end. The bowl is your universe and you need to tell it what you want and that Hekate is only here to shed light on the path you are to take. She continues by telling you to whisper into the bowl, your one true goal or destination.
You thank the girl and she again pointing, this time toward the cave, and tells you that is where your path will start. You begin to walk past her into the cave, inside it is lit by torches hung on both sides of the cave, and you see that the cave narrows to a tunnel. As You walk deeper into the cave you notice that it begins to slope downwards. Soon the tunnel opens out into a cavern. Its ceiling is so high you cannot see it. The walls and floors are spotted with crystals embedded in the rock, in the center of the cavern stands an altar bearing another silver bowl with a blue flame burning in it. The light from the flame is reflected by all the crystals throughout the cavern, making it seem as though you are floating in space.
You approach the altar, but as you come close to it, the altar disappears and before you is the figure of Hekate standing in its place. She wears a simple white tunic and a silver rayed crown. Despite the disappearance of the flame, the cavern is still filled with the light reflected by the crystals.
Hekate smiles at you and points to the far wall behind her. Among the crystals you can see another silver bowl sitting in an alcove of the rock wall. Without a word you know what you are being called to do. As you approach the bowl, Hekate’s voice follows you, and she says “This is vision bowl of the Oracles. You may look into it and it will show you a path for you to follow.” At first glance in to the bowl you can see the full moon. This image fades and begins to show you, your path as it will be as of this night. Watch and remember.
After a while Hekate speaks again, and tells you it is time to go and hands you a piece of paper. She explains that you are to place it into the silver bowl at the mouth of the cave. You thank Hekate and walk towards the entrance you came in through and start to walk up the sloping tunnel towards the surface. Standing once more in the cave opening out in the moonlight with your paper in hand. Turning around you look again at the statue, and see that Hekate is no longer holding torches, but is holding the silver bowl with the blue flame from the altar that was inside the cave. You walk over and place the paper that Hekate gave you into the bowl. As the paper burns it turns into brilliant red light.
As you stare at the beauty of her statue, and consider how lifelike it is, you notice a white mist rolling in, becoming more and more dense, surrounding you and obscuring your surroundings, so you can no longer see the statue or the cave. All around you is the mist. And now the mist starts to disperse, and as it does so you see once more the walls around you, the ceiling above and the floor below. You become aware of yourself in the room with Hekate.s candles once more.
Open your eyes when you ready.
After you have collected yourself, using the pen and paper write down the end goal you now have been shown by Hekate. Light on fire off the Hekate candle and drop it into the bowl of water. Extinguish candle when done.
