 The 13th Rite - Rite of The Womb

The Womb Is Not A Place to Store Fear & Pain
The Womb Is to Create & Give Birth To Life!

If the ceremony will happen indoors then you need to build an altar. It does not need to be big or complicated, but it needs to provoke sacredness and beauty. On a flat surface, like a table or bench, set a nice cloth and put a bowl of water in the middle. This water will absorb the prayers and at the end of the ceremony you will offer it to Mother Earth for the healing of her waters. You can add thirteen candles around the water to honor the thirteen moons of the year and also to activate the altar with the flames. Also, you can enhance the space and the ceremony by having flowers or petals in the altar. (After this guidelines use your own intuition and check directly with the lineage about adding anything else. Ask a question and tune in for an answer remembering that you are also the lineage.)
If you have access to a place in nature that feels good and inviting then you may perform the ceremony there. It is especially ideal to be by a lake as it resembles the womb of Mother Earth and we want to share this healing with Her. Nonetheless, it can be under a tree, in a forest, by a big rock, by a river, a mountain, or any place that helps you feel the sacredness of life. Either way, indoors or outdoors, it is important to share the healing with Mother Earth. Every woman that receives the rite can offer a healing prayer for Her. Indoors the women can use the flower petals to blow prayers into and then put the petals in the bowl of water. At the end, you can gently pour that water in a river, a lake, or on a little hollow on the Earth.Outdoors you can also blow your prayers on flower petals or something more appropriate (go with your intuition) and offer them directly to Mother Nature.
