Description of Candlelight Ceremony:
The Candlelight Ceremony begins with chanting the Navkar Mantra. As we chant we go to the altar and each light a taper and pass it through the flames of each of the large candles, each candle symbolizing the qualities of the Divine God Consciousness which we choose to magnify and manifest in ourselves: Love, Light, Divine Order, Healing, Abundance, Peace, Strength, Clarity, Power, Miracles and Humor.
At each large candle we silently say “I embrace the power of love” (or Light, or Divine Order, the name of each candle we pass our tapers (soul flame) through the flames of the Divine. We are blessed, re-energized and renewed. As we complete the ceremony, we place our individual taper in a candle holder on a tray at the end of the row of large candles, and move on to the stand of votive candles where we light a candle or as many as we like for people or animals who have transcended (died).
Then we take our seats and continue chanting the following: Chattari Manglam (one time, for special blessings on the ceremony), Khamiya, the Forgiveness Mantra (seven times, once at each energy center or chakra beginning in Sanskrit and then alternating in English), Shivam astu, a Healing mantra (seven times, once at each energy center or chakra alternating in Sanscrit then English). or other chants follow. We then pray The Lord’s Prayer together.
We then invite all of the Enlightened Beings in to the sanctuary and in to our circle to be with us during the empowerment and meditation. We then empower the light visualizing a pinpoint of light in the center of the sanctuary and, using the mantra Namo Sitarnum, expand the light to everyone in the sanctuary, all those who have joined upon the astral plane, out of the center in all four directions to Infinity. This is done for several minutes, then the the mantra is released and meditation continues each person using her or his mantra for 20 minutes.
At the end of the meditation, there is a channeled message and affirmations. We then have a healing circle where we first put ourselves into the center of the circle for healing on all levels. Each person may then put people, animals, situations or anything they like into the center of the circle for healing. We do this individually. Requests can be put into the circle silently or out loud. . We then stand and join in a circle around the tapers. We give and receive special blessings, (from you I receive and to you I give…) Then, we blow out the tapers together and share many healing hugs.
