There are many different ways to give and receive healing. A laugh, a hug, even a pat on the back or soothing tone can provide healing to someone in need. In today’s environment of high medical bills, expensive prescriptions and invasive procedures, many people are looking to ‘alternative medicines’. But you might take note at just how many of these ‘new alternatives’ are actually ancient healing methods or simple ‘home remedies’ your grand mother used to provide. No matter what you chose to believe, nothing should take the place of a visit to your doctor when problems arise. Holistic healing methods are designed to assist in treating the ‘whole’ person and not just the physical ailment most medical treatments deal with.

Colors play an important role in our lives and even when we do creative work or meditate, we can lend distinctive vibrations and focus our intentions better through the burning of different colored candles. Indeed; candle “magick” is an important and much studied science and art (which many feel, wrongly, is associated with black magic or witchcraft).
In this guide, we will only refer to the use of candle colors and their meanings for linking to individual energies as based on different colored Chakras. We hope that the candle colors and their meanings given below will work positively on specific forces of the Universe in order to strengthen your affirmations. This, in turn, can help you direct the Universal energy towards particular (positive) conclusions.
This article on Color_means.com has a lot of information about how colors can work in magic and our daily lives. Please click on the following link to read this rest of this information: http://www.color-meanings.com/colors-of-candles-what-do-different-candle-colors-mean/
On Tuesday September 13th, some gathered in the Coven Life’s chat room to pray and send healing to Lady A.
Before signing online, I asked that the room be cleared of all negative entities. Then I invited all Four Elements to join in and help raise the healing energy that will be sent to Lady A. After that I invited The Goddesses and Gods to give healing power and then once online, I asked if anyone wanted to say a prayer or share anything from their heart, at which we all took turns sharing positive words of healing then all said that candles of healing were lit. After the prayers I asked that we focus on healing for her body and we went into a 5 minute meditation.
After the meditation I asked if anyone wanted to share what they saw or felt during the meditation. We all felt so much love and a sense of peace. I saw us all standing around Lady A’s hospital bed, holding hands. As we meditated an held hands, I saw a white light of energy hovering over her and her bones mending as she layed in her bed. Then a strong sense of love and peace filled the room.
Afterwards we compared notes and we experienced goose bumps and chills. But most importantly, the feeling of love and peace was there coursing through all of us taking part and as many of us were in tears.
What a beautiful moment and what wonderful people that took part in this healing. It didn’t matter if you were there on Coven Life or sending love and healing from wherever you happened to have been. I feel that Lady A benefited from the power of love and healing that was sent to her from all over the world.
A side note: While the group was together, I forgot to officially thank the Elements and Deities for their assistance, I was pretty overwhelmed, so right after our Healing Circle disassembled I thanked and then dismissed the Element of Water, the Element of Fire, then the Element of Air and finally the Element of the Earth Mother. The next step, I apologized to The Deities for being rude and thanked the Goddesses and Gods for their assistances and returned them back to where they came from. We are an appreciative group.
We as a group will also depending on Lady Beltane to keep us updated on Lady A’s condition.
Brightest Blessings Sisters and Brothers,
Gods and Goddesses of Healing
Instead of copying and pasting all eighteen of the deities and their information I’m just going to give you the link to the article by Patti Wigington on About.com. When I did a general search on Google for “healing gods” a lot of possibilities came up but as I really like the way Ms Wigington presents stuff I choose to go with her article.
If you know the names of other Gods and/or Goddesses know for their healing abilities please post them in the comment section below. One goddess I was surprised not to see on her list is Kwan Yin, an oriental goddess known to help with depression and comforting people who call upon her.
For those of us who want to do something privately for Lady A or even someone else that needs healing, I found this relatively easy healing ritual by Patti Wigington on About.com. Here is the link if you want to check out the article or others on various subjects on the About.com’s website: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/wiccanandpaganrituals/a/God-Goddess-Healing-Ritual.htm (This article has not been changed in any way by myself, so any typos were already there.)
This ritual is one which can be done on behalf of an ill friend or family member. They do not have to be present for you to do this ritual. In many traditions it is customary to at least ask permission before doing healing (or any other sort of) magic. However, it is often acceptable to assume you have implied permission – in other words, if you believe in good faith that the individual would want you to perform this rite on their behalf, then you may go ahead and do so without specifically asking for their approval in advance. Follow the guidelines of your own tradition’s belief system and ethical standards.
Keep in mind that someone who is terminally ill may not wish to live longer, and may instead be wishing for release from their pain. As a contrast, someone who is suffering from an acute illness rather than a long-term one may simply want to feel better immediately.
This ritual asks the goddess (or god) of your tradition to watch over the ailing individual and assist them with healing.
There are a number of different deities associated with healing, from a variety of different pantheons. If your particular flavor of Paganism doesn’t have a god or goddess of healing, consider using one of these:
You will need the following items:
- A small (votive or even tealight size) white candle to represent the individual for whom you are doing the ritual
- Healing incense (loose blend) of allspice, bay, yarrow, apple blossoms, lemon balm, cinnamon
- A candle in any color representing the god or goddess you wish to petition for assistance
Begin by casting a circle, if your tradition requires you to do so. Set up your altar as you normally would, placing the god/goddess candle behind the individual candle. In this sample ritual template, we will be using Brighid, but you should substitute the name of the deity upon whom you are calling when you perform this rite.
I call upon you, Brighid, in a time of need.
I ask your assistance and blessing, for one who is ailing.
[Name] is ill, and she needs your healing light.
I ask you to watch over her and give her strength,
Keep her safe from further illness, and protect her body and soul.
I ask you, great Brighid, to heal her in this time of sickness.
Place the loose incense blend on your brazier (or, if you don’t use a brazier for incense, use a charcoal disc in a bowl or plate) and light it. As the smoke begins to rise, envision your friend’s illness wafting away with the smoke.
Brighid, I ask you to take away [Name]’s illness,
Carry it out to the four winds, never to return.
To the north, take this illness away and replace it with health.
To the east, take this illness away, and replace it with strength.
To the south, take this illness away, and replace it with vitality.
To the west, take this illness away, and replace it with life.
Carry it away from [Name], Brighid, that it may scatter and be no more.
Light the candle representing the god or goddess.
Hail to you, powerful Brighid, I pay you tribute.
I honor you and ask this one small gift.
May your light and strength wash over [Name],
Supporting her in her this time of need.
Use the flame on the deity candle to light the smaller candle, representing your friend.
[Name], I light this candle in your honor tonight.
It is lit from the fires of Brighid, and she will watch over you.
She will guide you and heal you, and ease your suffering.
May Brighid continue to care for you and embrace you in her light.
Take a few moments to meditate on what you really wish for your friend. Once you have finished, allow the candles to burn out on their own if possible.
