A Ritual for Cutting Away the Fearsome Foe

In Tibet, on July 8th, the monks performed an ancient ritual dance

to eliminate negative forces and hindrances.

Dressing in yellow robes they used vocal and instrumental sounds

to invoke creative awareness.

Begin this ritual by allowing yourself to vocalize freely

whatever sounds come forth, melodious or dissonant.

Open your self to explore-

Play music that inspires you to trance dance as you cast a circle, sprinkling flower petals or a potpourri thrice around.

Have a basin of warm water scented with sandalwood oil

and wash your feet.

Dry them off well and rub them with a little olive oil.

Using a henna paste, paint them artfully

with spirals, circles and other symbols.

When you are ready begin your ritual dance,

improvising movement that you feel expresses releasing dark energy

as you move counter clockwise (widdershins) within your sacred circle. Then change direction and dance sunwise

 pulling in toward your solar plexus feelings of joy and positivity

as you chant a mantra of purification,

"0m mani padme hum"

and cut away the fearsome foe!
