Triple-formed Mistress of the three ways
I entreat thee, Key-bearing Mistress of the Nightwandering Souls

To bring down your starfire from the darkness between,

Goddess of the Shadow Realms! Light-bearing queen!
Whisper now your secrets!

will always find one another,

flame, the yellows and reds, the blues and whites, and the black. If you wish you may decide to spend

it and keep the candle let your true self radiate brightly its beautiful mysteries from this

Infused by the silence and warmth of our union
I feel your golden radiance within my heart
And the glory of knowledge on my brow,
I am a student of your mysteries.

your forefinger and middle finger of your dominant hand to your lips (three heartbeats)
and then to your brow (three heartbeats).
