Tonight I performed the ritual for the vow breaking woman. The ritual went smoothly and as planned. I didn’t leave out any parts of it and I feel that it was a truly powerful ritual. When I called up on the gods, the wind picked up and the energy of the grove changed palpably. Later when they were thanked, you could feel the energy change again to what it was before. The woman shed silent tears as I bound her hands in the hand fasting cord that had been used in the hand-fasting to her husband, that was then cut. I held the cut cord up and asked her if she wanted me to place it in the fire or do it herself. I was pleased when she wanted to do it herself and she did. Having not only been at the hand-fasting, but hosting it in my home, it was a poignant moment for me as well. Another poignant moment was the taken of the Oman. I used my Ogham and asked the big question, “are these sacrifices accepted?”. This was gut wrenching moment for me, as the woman has made some pretty big sacrifices already and I did not want to have the holy kindred reject them. Gladly they did not. The omen was very positive. Once all was done, I guided the woman on a journey to speak with the kindred. She shared a little bit of that with me, but that is not my story to tell. I never told her or any one other then the readers of this blog about what I saw two weeks ago in regards to the spirit that was around her. However, when the ritual was done and she was getting ready to leave she stopped and said “ya know, I already feel better now than when I came.” I am taking this as a strong affirmation that my magical working has banished the spirit from her. My hope is now her luck will change, and she can move forward with her life, learning what she needs to learn to find her power, and gaining in wisdom. Time will tell, for all answers are told in time.
