~Welcome to the New Moon Despacho Ceremony for February~
We stand humbly before you
as your sons and daughters
to plant the seeds of self love
under the dark of Mama Killa,
Teach us the ways of the heart.
Guide our Sacred Masculine and Sacred Feminine
to balance and unity from within.
May the clarity of an awakened mind
merge with the intelligence of our emotional waters
to inform our actions from our deepest knowings.
May we be of fearless service with a tender heart
in this time of walking upon Pachamama.

You may wish to create a ceremony for yourself
by offering your intentions into seeds or qintus, see below
~Close Ceremony with a Prayer of Thanks~
Elements of Despacho: The two circles symbolize union as their shapes intertwine with each other. The masculine is represented on the right where it energetically resides in our bodies. White flowers indicate the heavens, celestial spirits and Apus or Mountains as we hold the spiritual masculine as residing above. To the left the feminine is held in red flowers symbolic of the blood of Pachamama, Mother Earth, as we are spiritually held from the feminine below. Within each circle is a seed of the other as shown by the red flowers of the feminine in the white flowers of the masculine and vice versa. A feather sits in the masculine representing Air and Spirit while a shell representing water and Earth resides in the feminine. Red and white candles in each circle symbolize the Sacred Fires of Passion that burn within the heart of the masculine and feminine. All four elements are symbolized and brought to balance, Earth, Air, Water and Fire. At the heart of our despacho is a bed of tobacco and sugar to hold our intentions which sit in the shell in the center, our intention to plant seeds of self love and bring internal balance and harmony to our Sacred Masculine and Feminine, heart and mind. Two small figures of a man and a woman sit inside the shell. A wreath of rosemary surrounds the flowers.
Once all names and intentions have been placed in the despacho a variety of offerings will feed our prayers before being fold and tied like a gift. A forgotten prayer holder will be attached outside. Our ceremonial gift will then be burned in a fire. More will be posted after ceremony.
I offer deep appreciation and gratitude for bringing your prayers to this ceremony, for your prayers empower the prayers of us all.
AHO my friends! AHO!
