Ritual for the Healing of the Gulf of Mexico

I got this ritual from my friends, Raven & Lidia. It's a very powerful ritual, designed for healing in the Gulf of Mexico.

ALTAR DÉCOR

Quan Yin, settling the dragons with healing elixir, and Buddha A candle for each deity A candle for reading Two small brass goblets (One filled with fresh water, and one with sea water (water and salt, since I didn’t have any water from the ocean.) One Wooden Goblet One Libations bowl Several Shells

RITUAL
CAST CIRCLE
(Cast the circle, beginning in the North by circling the space deosil, in clockwise direction, three times round or until the wall is sensed)
Three times three I walk the round To join my heart With sacred ground To raise a temple out of light A place to hold my healing right

CALL TO QUARTERS

(Begin in the east, working around the quarters deosil until finishing in the North)
Guardians of the East, Powers of Air I call upon your love and care As water is carried upon your breeze May all the pollution around the Gulf cease! Hail, and be welcome in my presence! Guardians of the South, Powers of Fire I call upon you to see our desire As water steams and boils upon your burning May all pollution around the Gulf set to purging! Hail, and be welcome in my presence! Guardians of the West, Powers of Water I call upon you, Oh Womb of the Mother As waters you are, pure and dear May all pollution around the Gulf be made clear! Hail and be welcome in my presence Guardians of the North, Powers of Earth I call upon you, Ancient ones of our birth As waters you cradle, blessed and pure May all pollution around the Gulf be sent the cure! Hail and be welcome in my presence!

CALL TO THE GOD AND GODDESS

Great Father

BLESSING OF THE WATERS

(Lifting the goblet of fresh water)
Blessed be, oh Creature of Fresh Water You that refreshes and cleanses us You that makes all life possible upon this Earth May you be an aid and protection to us In this most solemn rite! (Lifting the goblet of sea water) Blessed be, oh Creature of Salt Water You that was kissed by the Sun You that was rocked by the Moon May you be an aid and protection to us In this most solemn rite! (Pouring both goblets into the third and chant) You are the flow You are the ebb You are the weaver You are the web (Until you can feel the water come to life and connect with the waters in the Gulf of mexico, then speak the charge) Mixed as one Tears of the Mother Waters of Her Womb Life-giving essence Return now to heal The polluted waters of the Gulf of Mexico With this you are charged! (then while emptying goblet into libation bowl declare) So mote it be.

FAREWELL TO GODDESS AND GOD
