A fire ceremony brings people together to pray for powerful solutions they need in their life. Native Americans have used the fire like this for centuries.
Here at the Divine Lineage Center we put quite some work into setting up a fire ceremony which we do every full and new moon. We decorate the fire pit and create offerings for the fire. The energy of the fire is fed with ghee (purified butter), rice, flowers, and greens. Everybody receives a bowl with rice to offer to the fire throughout the ceremony. We cut fresh greens and stack wood by the fire pit. We broadcast the fire ceremony via USTREAM for the many people who watch and pray over the distance for their needs. We get a lot of feedback that those people really receive the powerful energy just watching it on their computer at home. Maybe you remember a moment when you sat at a fire and felt so much better doing it? Happier and lighter. This is really an ancient technique.
The fire is so powerful to take any negativity you are holding. Looking into the fire helps burn all heaviness or bad feelings. You will feel free, happy, open and full of energy again after attending or watching a fire ceremony. Just try it and experience it for yourself. Event sitting by yourself watching into a flame of a candle helps. Of course, it is even stronger sitting in a group in front of a big fire. It is very much fun to be in that unity, and you can pray for others too. Watch it and see the results of your prayers unfold.
The fire has huge capacity to burn anything. Whatever the obstacles are around you, you can send them into the fire. If you have a strong faith on the fire it will fulfill your desires and automatically sends the highest positive energy to people you care about. That is really powerful, isn’t it? I really recommend you try it and see for yourself. We also perform fires for world peace. Those fires generate positive energy for ourselves, our families, our communities and the whole world.
