rituals without a candle or candles

2 Apr

sometimes you might find that you can’t use candles in your rituals because the people you live with might be allergic to them. this i had learned with roommates who had issues with them. the simple solution is this: don’t use any or wait for  them to  leave. well the latter might work well if you are the home owner. if you are like iam not the home owner.  you can do both. and when you do the latter. make sure the windows are open. and a fan is blowing. however i opt doing the former as a suggestion by my spirit companions who reminded me that in ancient times they never use candles. and not always a fire. but use the moon and stars themselves. one night under the full moon i had done a simple ritual of casting circles and evoke the deities namely goddesses of the moon. followed by elementals, and last my spirit companions. as i stood there in the middle of the circle honoring the goddesses of the moon. i never felt more of  connection  to them. plus i had seen glowing orbs around me as well as glowing mists.
when i closed the ritual.  open the circle.  and gave my thanks to the goddesses , my spirit companions, and the elementals. i felt the energy go. but i still felt peace.
the opening of the ritual was simple. i said this:
i have no candle. let the moon be my light of devotion. as it was for my ancestors (indoors i say let my soul be the flame of devotion).
i can’t burn incense. let the scent of the air serve as my incense.( indoors i say let my  burning heart of devotion  provide  the incense).
hear now i bless thee goddesses.  for your help. for your love.
and i give thanks to thee.
i also gave thanks to my spirit companions and their elders and rulers. and the elementals.
later at times i repeated this no candle ritual with positive results. but i must admit at times when i can. i do use a candle. or candles when i can.
