Twelve Holy Days Candle Ceremony
Rev. Dr. Betsie H. Poinsett

(Performed for 12 days FOLLOWING December 25th)
Adapted from Mystery of the Christos by Heline

This ritual is performed to help review and re-light the Christ within. During the period following the Christed One?s birth, the Earth is bathed in healing light. Angelic presence permeates the planet and the fragrance emanated is absorbed in the Earth. This celebration coincides with the Eastern Orthodox Holy Days Calendar leading to their Christmas celebration on January 7th. You will need:

12 White Candles
6 Pink Candles
6 Yellow Candles
5 Blue Candles
3 Purple Candles
2 Green Candles
2 Red Candles
Total Candles = 36

Set up your ritual for each day with the three candles in a triangle facing East. Perform the ritual at 7:00 p.m. each day. Allow the candles to burn down completely. Invoke Spirit and focus on the Spiritual Center. Perform your mantra and meditate to the seed thought of the day. Call in the disciple of the day. When you call each disciple, also call in Jesus as Osiris-King of Heaven and Mary Magdalene as Isis-Queen of Heaven.

Upon completion of over 600 hours of clinical residency, she was invited to join the staff of HMI and has been in private practice since 1990.

She became an Adept in Shamanism from the Institute of Shamanic Synthesis in Santa Fe, NM, studying under Shaman Amari Magdalena, who was a student of Don Miguel Ruiz author of the best selling book: The Four Agreements.

Her mission is to unite people of all spiritual viewpoints using earth-based wisdom to experience more peace, harmony and beauty in their lives.

In 1997, Betsie’s 21 year-old son died, thus giving her a deep understanding of the grief process and the blessings available from the other side. Soon after he died she published a book called The Dragonfly Collection in his memory. In October 2001, Lee Carroll “Kryon” released his newest book, An Indigo Celebration. Betsie was honored to have her story and her son’s poetry used as the closing chapter of this informative book about the Indigo children.
