Fire Meditation

Set an intention to utilise every opportunity that presents itself to sit round a fire.
If no opportunity presents, then create one!

Prior to setting your fire, take some time to identify something that you are currently doing which no longer fits for you. It could be a negative core belief about the Self, a negative pattern of thinking or a repetitive behaviour that no longer serves you.

Once you have identified what it is that you wish to transmute, create a ‘Power Object.’
This is best made from material from the natural world such as sticks, plants, or feathers. As you fashion it, keep in mind that it represents the thing that no longer fits for you.

Take a piece of wool, string or long grass stalk or leaf and begin to wind it around the ‘Power Object.’

As you wind around your ‘Power Object’ you are unwinding the core belief, negative pattern of thinking or repetitive behaviour from your own psyche. You are transferring it into the object.

See this happening.

Now set your Power Object aside.

For this exercise use a fire pit or cauldron and take all necessary precautionary measures to ensure your safety. (This might include choosing a safe, well ventilated space outside and having water of extinguishers to hand.)

Set your Fire and sit in quiet contemplation.

When you are ready, throw your ‘Power Object’ into the Fire and silently ask it to transmute that which no longer serves you.

Watch it burn.

Wait in the silence to see what comes to you.

You may receive insights and be blessed with better understanding.
You may be filled with compassion and a renewed sense self-worth.
Do not obstruct the process with too much thinking.

Sit in silence and watch the Fire.

Practise gratitude throughout.

When you are ready, put out the fire safely and return to the world with a new perspective.

Remember that nothing passes through the Fire and remains unchanged.
