Tree of Life
Here's the ritual I borrowed from Starhawk. She probably gives it
further credit as to where she got it from, but I didn't make note of
that (this is in the ten-year-old part of my Book of Shadows). Forgive
me if I paraphrased somewhere along the line. Sometimes I do that when
I'm copying things down. This is a free ritual available from New Moon Occult Shop. If you paid for it or bought it please let us know so we can stop it and make sure everyone gets these for free.
To be used for grounding and centering prior to visualization.
Sit or stand erect. Breath deeply and rhythmically.
As your spine straightens feel the energy raising.
Imagine your spine is the trunk of a tree and from its base roots extend
deeply into the Earth ... into the center of the Earth Herself.
And you can draw up power from the Earth, with each breath ... feel the
energy rising ... like sap through a tree trunk.
Feel the power rise up your spine ... feel yourself becoming more alive
with each breath.
From the crown of your head you have branches that sweep up and back
down to touch the Earth ... feel the power burst from your head ... feel
it sweep through the branches until it touches the Earth again ...
making a circle ... completing the circuit ... returning to its source.
