Fire has the power to cleanse from our luminous field what no longer serves us. Fire feeds the seeds of intention of what we seek to call forth. Fire accelerates the release of heavy energies transforming it into light. We will use a simple fire ritual during our cord cutting ceremony for healing and transformation.

What you will need:

  • Tea Light Candle
  • Toothpick

In a traditional Peruvian fire ceremony we bring to the fire what we are ready to release by blowing the intention into a stick. (Read How A Shaman Prays for more). If you have a fireplace or other means of creating a fire, by all means use a stick to offer your intentions to the fire. If not, we will use a candle and a toothpick with the same intention working in the sacred space of ceremony.

With your exhale, blow the intention of releasing the roots of any toxic cords that deplete your system of its life force energy. Blow in the intention to clear the energetic impressions that diminish the brilliance of your Light. Blow in the intention of releasing the energetic impressions that have laid a foundation of lack and limitation. Personalize your intention in any way that feels authentic to you. Your breath is the energetic conduit on which your intention travels. As your intention is held in the stick, the dense energy of your intention transforms in the fire into light.

Once your intention is held in the toothpick, place it in the fire holding it as long as you can before setting it in the flame so it burns completely. Once your toothpick has been placed in the fire leave it until the flame has died out. Anything that may be left from your fire ritual; wax, burnt offerings, wick, may be buried in the Earth.

The other part of the fire ritual will clear the three energetic centers at your belly, heart and forehead and release any cords to the fire. Starting just below your navel, move your hand in a counterclockwise direction with the intention of releasing any dense or blocked energy from this center and direct it into the fire. Continue until this feels complete. Repeat this unwinding at the heart and forehead.

Once these 3 centers have been unwound, place your hands in front of you, palms facing up and ask Spirit for a ceremonial sword with which to cut any toxic cords. Trust you will receive what you need. If you have a ceremonial sword use it here. With deliberate intent, clear the space around your physical body with your sword. As you cut, direct what is being released into the fire. Trust your intuitive wisdom. Spend as much time as you need. Continue until this feels complete. Offer the sword back to Spirit with gratitude.

Once your luminous body has been cleared with the sword, draw the light of the flame into your field to heal, re-inform and psychically cauterize any cords. This often feels like I am bathing myself with fire. Let the fire feed any intentions of what you would like to call into your life at this time.

Bring this ritual to a close by drawing the flame into each of the three energy centers (belly, heart, forehead) and seal them in a clockwise direction.

This will be part of our cord cutting ceremony with further instruction once ceremony opens but it is also a practice you can use at any time for clearing, healing and transformation.

AHO my friends! AHO!
