Walking

Loki
Honored one
I hear you call
I see your actions
Your message I know not.
The path is here
The foundation you  have built
The steps were mine
The steps are mine
The storms rage all around
I still see
I still walk
I may not be me when I’m done

Here is the Beltane ritual for 2018.

 

 

Hail North, the keeper of the dark, the land of the deep thicket, creeping vines, and the land of the Dwarves. Awaken this day to the wanderers of Twisting Yew,  We honor you and welcome your energy into our ritual.

Hail East, the keeper of whispers, the bearer of messages, the land of the mist, the talking leaves, the howling Night, and the land of the Fae. Awaken this day to the wanderers of Twisting Yew, and those of us who are Guardians of the Roots. We honor you and welcome your energy into our ritual.

Hail South, the keeper of flames, the land smoldering ash, burning truth, building creativity, land of the Salamanders. Awaken this day to the wanderers Twisting Yew, and to those of us who are Guardians of the Roots. We honor you and welcome your energy into our ritual.

Hail West, the keeper of the ponds, the land of the Underworld, land of emotions, land of the Nymphs. Awaken this day to the wanderers Twisting Yew. We honor you and welcome your energy into our ritual.

Hail Twisting Yew, the fuel for our internal fires, the revealer of knowledge, the guide to the Gods. We honor you and welcome your energy into our daily life.

 Welcome.  Have you felt the fire?  Have you felt the rain? Have you touched the mud? Have you smelled the incense? Can you see the change? Can you feel her presence walking in the woods? Look, there She stands.  The Forest Protector Artemis! Hail Artemis Protector of the forest and animals. We offer you ___ to protect our animals, our forests. We offer you __ in thanks and in honor for what you do.  Participants walk under the path of arrows shot from Artemis’s Bow. When all have been blessed return to circle center.

Have you felt the sun? Have you seen the buds? Have you smelled the earth? Have you touched the air? Can you see the change? Can you feel his presence among the fields, among the roots?  Look, There He stands. The Golden God, riding on his mighty boar, Gold-Bristled! We offer you __ to pass on fertility and prosperity to our fields and to us. We offer you ___ in thanks and honor of what you do. Participants walk past Freyr as he throws seeds/grains over them. When all have been blessed return to circle center.

Now is the time to put affirmative intent into the seeds that you have planted last we were together. Accept the energetic blessings of Artemis to protect your will. Accept the energetic blessings of Freyr to grow your will. Accept the energetic blessings of the essence of Fire, of Loki, to allow the necessary change within ourselves. When all have fortified their intentions begin the closing.

 Your intents have been reinforced, it is up to you now to make them manifest. Once more feel the energies, merge with the energies present. Honor them and thank them. Our time in this sacred space is coming to an end. The influence remains. Let us depart with what we needed. Sound the Horn.

To West

To South

To East

And

To North,

Thank you for sharing this time and space with us. Leave if you must but know that you are welcome always to stay.

Loki’s Prayer

Loki’s Prayer

Hail Loki,
Full of Fire,
I am with Thee;
Blessed art thou amongst the liminal,
and Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Sleipnir
Father of Hel, Be with us dedicants, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen
