Bring your relationship to a deeper level as a way to honoring each other as individuals and as a union. Based on the fact that we are different from each other, we make the decision to freely unite with our beloved to support us in our growth in this life’s journey.
I once heard that there are as many ways to unite as there are ways to love. If this resonates with you, I propose to elaborate a ceremony totally in accordance with your feeling. There are so many beautiful options and rituals!
Planting a tree; gather in a circle, including your participants in the ritual by passing of the ring with their blessings; share your vows and prayers out loud, or you may choose a ritual like a Handfasting to express your love.
One of my favorites is the Elements love ritual in combination with sound. The sacred union in the presence of the forces of nature is a powerful way to unite:
Earth (pouring of sand), Water (water blending), Fire (lighting of a unity candle) and Air (burning ceremonial copal resin). Each element brings a quality and intention, representing our inner world. The sound works as a vibrational tool to anchor the ritual. Hang drum, flute, guitar, lyric singer or Shamanic drums are some of the options.
