This rite is good for anyone, even those who assume they have had perfect childhoods. You don’t always realize the past is dragging you down until it’s too late and you would be amazed by what you can find out about yourself.
You will need:
Kamea of sol
A box of any shape or size
A solar incense
And music of a childlike nature to enhance the atmosphere
The box should have a lid. Paint the inside glossy black, or line it with an irregular reflective surface such as aluminum foil. The outside should be decorated with any drawing, pictures or whatever one may want to help evoke a childlike state of mind and help trigger childhood memories.
Start with an opening of any sort you feel comfortable with. Light candles and incense as desired.
State the intent “It is my will to greet my past and accept it for what it is”.
Recite the invocation:
I call the past to meet the present,
That the future may be bright.
I bring myself forth from the dark,
And hold me to the light.
Let not the past control my present,
Let not my future be dark as night.
I meet and greet my with open arms,
And move back into the light.
At this point, one person sits in the center of the group with their box, keeping it closed. She focuses on the box while the rest of the participants circle around, teasing, insulting, degrading her. At this point, the teasing should not be too personal. When she reaches gnosis, she opens the box and gazes inside, seeing whatever she sees. Now the taunting should reach a more personal and vicious attitude. This continues until they close their box again.
The box then is dealt with in whatever manner she sees fit. It can be destroyed, left open in a spot of sunlight, or kept for future uses as it may be a good idea to do this more then once.
When the first person is finished, another takes her place until the entire group has a turn.
Banish with laughter and embraces
