Pagan Rosaries

Sunday, May 18, 2008
One of the biggest things that we can teach our children about paganism is ritual. The simplest of those rituals can be the ritual of the Pagan Rosary. Even the act of stringing one can be a ritual and a meditative experience unto itself.
I have found that a rosary of seven beads is both long enough to be effective and short enough that children, especially the oldest ones, aren't lost in the middle of the prayers.
The instructions for use of a Pagan rosary is relatively simple. Hold each bead in turn, saying the appropriate prayer. When saying the prayer and after, before moving onto the next bead, hold the visualization that the prayer brings to mind.

Necessary Items:
  • Six beads
    • Goddess
    • God
    • Four Elements
  • A seventh bead or pendant that represents the owner of the rosary
  • String or yarn
Now as you can see I have left this list of items very vague. And this is for a very good reason. I want you all to use your imaginations and intuition. This rosary is for you and for your children so it must resonate with you.
When you pick beads know that you are picking them to represent something specific on that list. Let your spirit guide you

Instructions:

String the beads in this order: Goddess; God; Air; Fire; Water; Earth; Seventh bead or pendant.
Make sure that they are all knotted into place. Leaving a short distance between each bead.

Rosary Prayer

First for the Mother, from who we all come
Second for the Father, reflection made real
Wind Blowing
Fire Burning
Water Flowing
Earth Standing
Seventh is for me wrapped in love
So Mote It Be!
