Help me to find the Goddess that resides within. Sacred Hecate, My Mother, My Goddess, I invoke you. Lend me your light, your power, your healing, your strength, your wisdom and knowledge , your guidance,your protection and your love- come into me. So Mote it Be.
Charge of the Goddess:
“I am the Mother of all life,the Soul of nature, the vessel from which All Things spring forth, and to which all returns. I am the white moon among the stars, wind in the sky, the spark of the fire, the seedling in the earth, the water in the river and your blood. I am the source of life, your heart’s desire, the call unto your soul.
Upon earth, I give the knowledge of the spirit eternal; and beyond death, I give peace, and freedom, and reunion with those who have gone before. For mine is the secret door which opens upon the Land of Youth; and mine is the Cup of Life, the Cauldron of Creation, the Holy Grail of Immortality. I do not demand sacrifice, for I am the Mother of All Living, and my love is poured out upon the earth. Before me now,your divine self shall be unfolded in the rapture of my infinite joy.
Honor Me from within your heart! Worship me with your every joy and in all of your celebrations. Dance, sing, feast, make music and love, all in my praise. All acts of love and pleasure are My rituals, for there is beauty in all things.For mine is the ecstasy of the spirit and my Law is Love unto all Beings. Therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honour and humility, mirth and reverence within you. Keep pure your highest ideal; strive always toward it; let nothing stop you or turn you aside. Be true to Me by honoring that which I have created, With harm to none, so it shall be.
I am always within you. I have been with you from the beginning, I shall remain with you always - for I am that which is attained at the end of desire. If you need Me, call upon Me and I shall come to you, for I am everywhere, always. I am the Maiden, the Mother and the Crone, and I live within you."
