TREE OF LIFE | SOVEREIGNTY | BODY OF STONE

THE PATH OF SOVEREIGNTY

For this cycle we culminate our journey through embracing the mysteries of Earth – known as the path of sovereignty. Sovereignty means simply that you are the authority over your own mind, hear, body and spirit, with free will to determine your own course in life. To be sovereign is to calibrate your own moral compass according to your own values and then navigate your own path by that compass with conviction. Affirming personal sovereignty claims ones independence.

ROOT CHAKRA: ESTABLISHING INDEPENDENCE

The elemental essence of Earth is regulated through the root chakra at the base of the torso. Just like a taproot on a tree, we also tap into the elemental earth through our root chakra. From the root up, we slowly establish our independence.

We can look to the 3 of Pentacles Tarot card which depicts mastery of a skill in trade or work; achieving perfection; artistic ability; and dignity through renown rank or power.

For this final class in the realm of Earth, we solidify our connection with the root, complete the dance structuring with a focus on refinement, and close the Earth Gate within our temple.

FOR THIS CLASS:

Please come prepared with your Amulet, Candle, Rosemary, Oil of Cypress, yoga mat, blocks, strap, something to tie around your waist, and hydration.

MUSIC: 

Slow Track: Ritual Spirit by Massive Attack

Full Speed: Glitnir by Danheim

HOMEWORK:

Follow along with me to the practice video at least once per day. 3 Times if possible.

 5 minutes a day is better than 1 or 2 hours per week.

Enjoy!

CLOSING THE NORTHERN GATE:

Face the North and stand in the posture of Earth

Powers of the North!

Essence of Earth!

Guardians of Stone, Bone & Crone

Sisters and brethren of the Great World Tree

Gnomes and sovereign Ghob of the realm of Earth!

I am grateful for your sturdy presence and aid in these rites.

Continue to strengthen my body and Great Work along the path of sovereignty. 

For now I release you to your fair and earthly realms. 

Hail and farewell!

See the green light and energy receding back through the gateway of your circle.

Draw the banishing earth pentagram with your natural athame, like a key in a lock.

Encircle the pentagram widdershins (counter clockwise) and see the portal closing.

Kiss the tips of your athame fingers and thrust any remaining energy at the closed gate.

Bow with your hand over your heart and say:

“Hail and farewell!”
