WATER I: PART III

Play Video

THE ELEMENT OF WATER AND THE PATH OF LOVE:

Within the Elemental Fusion Dance format, we nurture and sustain our practice with the rejuvenating qualities of water.

In this class, we integrate everything that we have practiced in the classes for part I and part II and build upon our motif. We will revisit our Indian Classical posturing as was practiced in the realm of earth and imbue it with a softer essence.

Water I Part III draws inspiration from the 3 of Cups Tarot card.

According to the Rider Waite Tarot: The meaning behind the Three of Cups represents a period of happiness and quality time.

The Thoth Tarot refers to it as the card of ABUNDANCE. It denotes fulfillment, joy, fertile exchange, gratitude, well-being, spiritual love and an overflowing heart.

PREP FOR THIS CLASS:

Please come prepared with your floral essential oil (Jasmine is ideal) and blue or white candle to be ready for our deepening into the realm of Water + smudge, yoga mat, blocks, something to tie around your waist and hydration of choice.

MUSIC: INANNA RAHKMA by Little Star

If you would like to deepen your practice and open the Elemental gate for Water, you can recite the invoking incantation before class:

WATER INCANTATION

(Stand in the posture of Water facing the West within your Temple Space  – Receptive hand at head height like a crescent moon, visualize blue and the fluidity of ocean waves. Projective hand with Natural Athame raised in salute. Shift your conscious connection to your roots dipping into the dimensional aspect of water.)

CALL:

Powers of the West!

Essence of Water!

I summon you to this sacred place. 

Guardians , elementals, undines, merfolk and niksa of the ocean depths!

Be with me now and lend your powers of intuition and emotion.

Open my heart!

Awaken your power of daring and acceptance within me.

Come crashing wave and foggy dusk.

Come glistening dew and river rapids to buoy and carve the way for this magick.

Draw the invoking pentagram of water beginning on the upper left corner and moving to the right, all the way through the star and back to where you started.

Encircle the pentagram deosil (clockwise) unlicking the gate.

Draw the power inward.

Kiss the athame fingers, drawing the essence of water into you.

The portal opens, the circle is flooded with elemental energy and the blue girder encircles your sphere.

Hand over hear, bowing say~

” Water I welcome you with Gratitude. Hail and Welcome.”

FOR CLOSING THE GATE AFTER CLASS:

Face West in the posture of water and say:

Guardians of the West!

“Essence of Water, Undine & Niksa!

I am grateful for your lessons of daring to Love and of Acceptance.

Continue to nurture my heart and Great Work along the Path of Love.

I release you now to your fair and fluid realms.”

See the blue girder recede through the gateway as you draw the banishing pentagram to close the gate begining at the right point, moving left and continue through the star until you reach the right point once again. Draw a circle around it counter clockwise (widdershins). Kiss the tips of your fingers forming your natural athame and thrust any remaining energy out through the gate. Bow and say “Hail & Farewell.”
