Sun Wheel – The Green Candle of Wisdom

Samhain 23/Nov. 22

Stelladi or Star Day. (Wednesday).

Day of Madria Sage.

Dear Friends and devotees of Dea,

Here, so that we may all be prepared to participate in our custom, is the prayerful act of lighting the Green Candle of Wisdom. The candle is lit (electric tea light or table lamp switched on) before dinner or early evening, followed by a brief scripture reading and prayers on Sunnadi or Sun Day 27th Samhain / 26th November. Or this ritual can be more appropriately incorporated (if you have the time) into the Feast Day of Jana Madria Thema on Rosadi or Rose Day, (Tuesday), 1st Astrea / 28th November.

My own adapted prayer: [7]

O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom,

we thank You, we bless You and we adore You.
For through Your everlasting life,
we are protected by the Veiled Stillness at the Centre of All.
The Heavenly Mother and the Divine Soul Daughter
find Their Completion in You.
O, Great Mother, Dark beyond the light and Light beyond the darkness.
O, Great Mother, You are the Wise Apple of our source, Life.
O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom, be with us.

O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom,

we thank You, we bless You and we adore You.
For through Your resplendent light,
we are warmed by the certainty of Your Unconditional Love.
Divine Soul Daughter was sent by You, so all creation would be saved.
O, Heavenly Mother, illuminating Holy Light, splendid Essence of Purity.
O, Heavenly Mother, You are the Wise Apple of our life lived in Spirit.
O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom, be with us.

O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom,

we thank You, we bless You and we adore You.
For through Your perfect mediation of Spirit and Soul to form,
we are elevated by the Holy Love of Your Pure Divinity in all the worlds.
O, Divine Soul Daughter whose Gentle Light guides and sustains all.
O, Divine Soul Daughter, You are High Priestess and Divine Gate to Spirit.
O, Divine Soul Daughter, You are the Wise Apple of our soul seeking Spirit.
O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom, be with us.

Blessing:

(Adapted from The Johnny Appleseed Blessing. He is a local hero of my area. ArchMadria Candra Sophia).

Oh,Our Lady is good to me,
And so I thank Our Lady,
For giving me the things I need
The sun, and the rain, and the apple seed.
Our Lady is good to me.

Meditate.

Holy Apple Orchard in a Field [8]

1. Begin by imagining yourself as a ‘tree’ in the Holy Apple Orchard in a Field. Imagine the Holy Daughter’s presence surrounding you and then spreading out to cover the whole of the field.
2. Visualise the other trees in the field, feel them vibrating with the Holy Daughter’s presence. Visualise the celestial birds and other creatures that inhabit this spiritual domain. Hear their different sounds and calls as they fill the air of the field. Feel the sunlight and the warmth, the rich, nurturing soil and the cool, soothing breeze.
3. Now turn your mind up to the sky towards heaven. Sense the overshadowing presence of the Holy Celestial Mother, blessed be, Her. Feel the power and majestic glory of Her Presence.
4. Now visualise the givine dew as it falls down from heaven upon the field. Feel the gentle caress of its drops. Feel the rejuvenating effects of this life-giving energy as it is absorbed inside you.
Now let the gentle descent of dew turn into a great downpour of supernal rain. Watch as the heavenly waters pierce the ground all around you and soak deep into the soil. Feel it penetrate into the whole of your being and fill you with the Divine Spirit.
Now rest in the overshadowing presence of the transcendent Divine Mother and the imminent presence of the Divine Daughter.
7. Feel the peace and tranquility that permeate this higher world. Feel the joy and the freedom. Sense its strength and its solidity, all from the Great Mother: stand tall and still and firm.
8. Now let go of all images and rest in the silence; then slowly open up your eyes.

Finish with:

The Eternal Trinity Prayer:

Eternal is the Life of the Great Mother.
Glorious is the Eternity of Dea.
