Heid Prophecy Rite
Casting Instructions for 'Heid Prophecy Rite'
- An offering
Begin by purifying the space you are going to work in, and invoke group protection. How you do this is up to you. Call upon Heid, asking that she guide you and take an active part in the rite. Explain what your intent is, what the goal is, and what you would like from Heid. Be clear. State the boundaries and limits you have.
The Channel, or the person who is going to have Heid invoked into them, now will have a cloak put over their head. They are given a staff to hold.The Channel will being to pound the ground with the staff, to "wake" the Volva from her sleep. While this is occuring, the audience/choir will being to sing galdr to entice Heid to be involved in the ritual. The guide will be singing to main lead of the choir, invoking Heid in the same style. The group, as a whole, should visualize Heid coming up from the Earth and into the channel.
The Master of Ceremonies, or whoever happens to be running the entire rite, should now welcome Heid. This would be the appropriate time for an offering. It is given directly to Heid through the channel. (AKA if you are offering food, give the food to the channel). Once the Channel has been touched by Heid, the audience then asks questions to be answered by Heid through the Channel. When the questions have been answered, the singing continues again, to draw Heid back into the ground and out of the Channel. The Channel then grounds, and thanks Heid for the experience.
