Have you been going through a lot of drama or emotional turmoil lately? And have you subsequently been experiencing a lack of energy, moodiness and overall inner imbalance? This priestess helps you to remove a certain repressed emotion or inner blockage, which may have been caused by harmful events, thoughts or words uttered by others or yourself. No matter what caused the emotional pain, the issues need to be understood and cleansed.

The Priestess of Emotional Healing helps you reach the core of your problems in order to heal them. During this time of your life, you may benefit greatly from deep meditations, spirit quests or sweat-lodge treatments, but most of all from calm, relaxing exercise such as swimming or hiking. These activities help you cleanse your mind and body, and therefore establish a harmony with your world.

It could also be beneficial for you to work with the following symbols: the spirals, the six-pointed star, the hexagram and the hexagon, runes Laguz and Uruz, and colours such as green, pink and orange. The deities who may be helpful to you in this regard are archangels Zadkiel, Michael, Raziel and Raphael, goddesses Persephone and Brigid, Hades (especially for cleansing deep, subconscious issues), Buddha, Celtic god Diat Cécht, and many others including your spirit guides.


Ideally, perform this ritual during the full or waning moon phase. You’ll need a peaceful, quiet place, a candle (ideally white, pink, orange or green), a pen and two pieces of paper.
On one of them, note down all your troubles, regrets, secrets or emotions, anything you wish to cleanse from your system. On the other one, draw the following symbols ( the Seed of Life, rune Uruz, and rune Laguz):

While holding the two pieces of paper, close your eyes and imagine the Seed of Life or its simpler version, the six-pointed star, expanding out from your heart chakra. Imagine it growing and growing until it reaches far beyond your physical body, and encloses you in the middle. With the image in your mind, utter either in your mind or aloud:

“I, (your name), wish to heal my spirit, soul, mind and body, and all the levels of my conscious and subconscious self. I now cleanse my whole being of all negative emotions from the past, present and future. I forgive myself for anything I may have done in the past and, though it may be hard, I forgive all those who were involved in hurting me. I may not agree with what they have said or done, but I free myself of their influences by releasing all held-back feelings of injustice, anger or hatred. May forgiveness heal the situation(s) now and forever. I hereby lift all the negative experiences from my past in exchange for inner peace and serenity. Please, (the name of the deity or deities you want to work with), give me a vision, a sign or a message which could help me reach the core of my problem now.”

Close your eyes, concentrate on your breathing and relax. You should now receive guidance in the form of a vision, memory or sudden insight.

The first thing that comes to your mind is usually the right message.
If nothing comes, imagine the magic symbols that you have drawn on the piece of paper, one by one. They should help you reach your subconscious better. If you find that it is still not working, ask the deity or deities you work with for guidance in your dreams the following night. Complete the meditation/ritual by pronouncing:

“Thank you, (the name of the deity or deities you are working with), for your help and assistance in this emotional cleansing.
Please surround me with a trinity of cleansing auras – the bright orange aura for cleaning my emotions and feelings, the emerald green aura for cleaning my physical, ethereal and spiritual bodies, and the pure white aura for cleaning my spirit and soul. May I be purified and healed on all conscious and subconscious levels of my existence. May I remain sealed in the protective auras of orange, emerald green and white, and may I remain protected from all negative entities, situations and emotions now and forever.
Please, (the name of the deity or deities you are working with), may my heart remain open and my mind focused on your future guidance, so that I may always easily reach and understand the core of all my blockages or problems.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

Keep the paper with the power symbols with you for as long as you like. You may place it under your pillow before you go to sleep for further visions or prophetic dreams.
