Exercise: Fire Meditation

You can find Earth, Water, and Air as well. The tool meditations: Sword/Athame, Wand, Pentacle, and Cup.

Face South. Ground and center. Be conscious of the electric shock with in each nerve as pulses jump from synapse to synapse. Be aware of the combustion within each cell, as food burns to release energy. Let your own fire become with the candle flame, bonfire, hearth fire, lightning, starlight, and sunlight, one with the bright spirit of the Goddess. Say, “Hail, Tana, Goddess of Fire!”

Exercise: Athame or Sword Meditation

You can find Earth, Water, Air, and Fire as well. The tool meditations: Wand, Pentacle, and Cup.

Ground and center. Hold your athame or sword in your strongest hand. Breathe deeply and take in the power of Air, the power of the mind. The power of this tool is that of discrimination, of drawing lines, setting limits, making choices, and carrying them out. Remember choices you have made and carried through in spite of difficulties. Feel the power of your mind to influence others and the strength of your responsibility not to misuse that power. You have the force to act ethically, in accord with what you believe is right. Let the power of your intelligence, your knowledge, your moral courage, flow into your tool.

Exercise: Air Meditation

You can find Earth, Water, and Fire as well. The tool meditations: Sword/Athame, Wand, Pentacle, and Cup.

Face east. Ground and center. Breathe deep, and be conscious of the air as it flows in and out of your lungs. Feel it as the breath of Goddess, and take in the life force, the inspiration, of the universe. Let your own breath merge with the winds, the clouds, the great currents that sweep over land and ocean with the turning of the earth. Say, “Hail, Arida, Bright Lady of the Air!”
