Simple Reflection Ceremony

What you will need
  • A white candle
  • Journal, paper, pen, pencil or recording device
  • An altar if you’d like, in which case the white candle should be placed upon it as the main source of light
  • Any shamanic music or appropriate journey tracks
  • A mirror of some kind

Find yourself a white candle and go into the bathroom where you will not be disturbed for some time. Alternatively you could do this in a bedroom or outside (so long as it was dark) with a mirror. Light the candle and turn off the lights, call to your helping spirits and call to Wolf. Ask for their presence and ask them to help you see what must be seen. Now, look into the eyes of your reflection and begin to speak. Let your eyes not divert, simply look yourself in the eyes and speak. Do not censor yourself. Allow yourself to speak truthfully and meaningfully. You should either have a journal or recording device so you can play it back or read back what you’ve written. Once you’ve gone over the things that need to change in your life and things to improve ask the helping spirits to highlight your strong points and your gifts. Like before do not allow yourself to be censored. Speak freely, no matter how ridiculous it may sound to you or others afterward. Be honest and simply let the words flow! This is a powerful reflecting exercise, though simple, can be quite moving.
