The burning bowl ceremony is a fire ceremony that helps us to release old, unwanted conditions or events in our lives. Let go of the old that no longer serves to make way for the new. It clears the way for new beginnings. It is a wonderful way of letting go. This ceremony can be done at any time: Sometimes we need a powerful outlet to let the old go so you can make room for the new in your life. American Indians always used smoke as a symbol of their thoughts and prayers going up to the Great Spirit.
Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.
It is best to do a meditation or quiet your mind prior to writing out what you want to release. Write what you no longer want in your life and what you need to let go of on a piece of paper.
Grab a pot, use a fireplace or something safe to burn paper in and your written releases. As you watch the paper burn visualize the smoke going up into spirit and being released from you. You can do a simple prayer as you watch the smoke.
Once it has been burnt, blow, fling, or pour the ashes in a lake, stream or into the wind off and away from your property as you say be gone and let it go from your thoughts.
Burning Bowl unity ceremony – Can be performed prior to the marriage ceremony. Releasing the past allows the couple to begin clean with no old residue hanging over the marriage.
After the burning ceremony create a list of what you want to experience in your life and place the list in safe keeping for a year then take it out and read it to see what has manifested. You can then burn the old list and create a new one.
Don’t carry old hurts with you. It doesn’t matter what has happened, your life isn’t flawed and you can start fresh. Just make that decision.
I recommend doing a burning bowl ceremony on a periodical basis and make it a part of your life.
