Ivy – A Guided Journey

As we ready ourselves to meet the Great Goddess Cerridwen, prepare a vessel of water, our herbs for the month and anything else you feel drawn to include. Any vessel will work, a black bowl. Cauldron, or even climbing into the bath.

Take a few moments to connect with the cauldron energy. Within it are the powers of life, death, rebirth, and prophecy. For some of you, it may be a new path to explore.

Once you have made that connection, we will begin. The audio journey is below. If prophecy is your desire, a divination or Mugwort tea is perfect for the work ahead.

More on Cerridwen

If you haven’t set up an altar for her yet, you can find my article here. Our January work with her can all be found at this link.

We are forever grateful to you for walking this journey with us. So much more is coming in 2022 so stay tuned!

Darkest Blessings,
Ivy

Pssst…speaking of connecting, we are trying so hard to contain ourselves about our community that will be launching this year!

We believe that it is important to empower each other by connecting in a way that provokes and encourages knowledge of self, of sovereignty, and that which builds intuition.

All the Pieces

This month, we have created many things to bring this journey to fruition. In this meditation, we put them all together. With them all working in conjunction, this is a powerful ritual in and of itself. Leaving some extra time AFTER the journey is imperative to return yourself fully into your waking consciousness. A snack of some sort can aid that transition back.

Why the Full Moon?

The full moon is the perfect time for a journey such as this one. We’re releasing the outdated ways of thinking and removing the things that do not serve our greater good. Thus it is the perfect time to descend to her hall and drink in the wisdom she has to share. It allows for us to leave behind the self we were, to emerge in that beautiful state of metamorphosis that is who we are becoming.

Hel’s Hall Journey Oil

I created an oil to annoint ourselves and our candles with to help further deepen our connection to her. As well as make that descent to her hall even easier. Both the oil and incense were used daily to deepen the work with her.

The Sigil

Some of the most powerful magic comes from sigilcraft. You can inscribe candles, draw them on yourself, draw on paper over and over as a form of meditation, or carry them with you as powerful protection. I have divined one for you, Witches, to use however you’d like. To aid you in your work with Hel.

The Meditation

The meditation was a joint effort, between Kaycee and I. While I wrote it, she recorded it for you all. You will find it below. My eternal gratitude to Hel, as she guided our hands every step of the way. To help us create a meaningful ritual journey for you.
