THE TEA CEREMONY BEGINS:
An Original Ritual Crafted by Kayla Baboolal
Before commencing with the ritual, please read the “intro” post:
Fingers above light – to eyes:
To illuminate my eyes that I may see the path
Fingers above light – move from third eye, over your head.
To illuminate my mind that I may understand the directions
Fingers above light – cross hands over heart or solar plexus depending on intent.
To manifest my will from within
(In time you will be able to shorten this to:)
(-That I may see – That I may know – That I may manifest-)
THE VESSEL – THE WOMB:
Poor Water into vessel, or place palms over filled vessel and request entrance to the Earth’s Womb:
Mother Earth hear my plea
Open up your womb to me
Within your temple a seed I plant
To manifest and grow with my intent
THE FLOWERING TEA OF THE EARTH:
(hold flowering tea ‘bud’ in selected mudra)
In death, but not dead, In life, but not alive
In limbo it waits – it’s potential to find.
(speak your intent, empower the flower and
place within the ‘Kalash’ or Earth Vessel)
THE MANTRA – THE OFFERING:
Prepare to recite mantras – (in the beginning you can state the purpose, for example: My energies I offer within this rite to plant the seed of:…. – In time the energies surrounding ritual itself will ‘know’ and grow for the mala’s store the energy for your use each time you recite your mantras. Once completed reverently place the Meru Bead into the tea to transfer the energy and blessings you raised within it:
From your womb the gift of life
To empower my intent
with Devine light.
Drink your tea and if comfortable with it, wear your mala on your left wrist, or around your neck as the style dictates, or place under your pillow. Repeat from Full Moon to First night of Full Moon only as this is a ritual of creation.
