* A Special Ritual
from the Romance Reverend *
(Our Romance Reverend will lead
Soulful Singles Members through a variation of this love
ceremony at our upcoming chat. Watch for announcements
and instructions in our upcoming newsletter.)
Evoke the energies of love, passion and a great
relationship on the holiday dedicated to merriment and
fertility by calling in divine match makers and
petitioning the Gods and Goddesses of Love to bring you
home to true love ... and bring your truest love home to
Try this simple prayer and ritual.
1) Set up a lovely May Day altar with pretty white
and/or pink flowers. Also place a white candle and a
pink candle on the altar. Buy some sweet fruits and
place them in a small bowl. Keep a piece of paper or
journal, and pen, handy.
2) Create a sacred space of peace and quiet by
playing a soft and uplifting piece of music.
3) Light the white candle to evoke the divine light
of God, Goddess, all there is… and to signify the
purity of your own heart, mind and body.
4) Light the pink candle to symbolize the love that
already exists in your heart, and the heart of your
beloved – wherever he or she may be.
5) Use the following prayer (you can tweak this, or
write your own) to call out to your divine matchmakers
and ask them to bring your perfect mate.
Dear Mother, Father, God, Divine Essence of all
Please fill this place with your sacred presence.
My heart is pure; my intentions clear.
I ask for your guidance and your help
In finding my soul mate, my most perfect partner.
I seek a partner who enhances me by his/her very being…
Who brings more love, joy, peace and prosperity to my
Who I can love fully and who can fully receive my love…
Who loves, honors and cherishes me completely, and
*Contemplate that partner and the relationship you
* If you feel moved, list the qualities of that partner
* If you choose, softly call out the qualities in the
mate you seek as if you are describing a real person who
exists in the world (however, never ask for a
specific person or make requests that may impinge on the
will of others.)
Close with this benediction:
I have spoken truly from my heart.
Please grant my desires for love -- of self and with my
I trust you will bring this too me lovingly and gently,
in a way that is completely right for my love and me.
I give thanks for your presence, your guidance and your
Amen. And so it is.
Revel in the energy of love your prayer has begun to
percolate. Continue with some wonderful music and sit
back and relax, enjoying the sight and smell of the
flowers and the flicker of candlelight.
Take a piece of fruit and enjoy its taste. Savor it
in your mouth. May true love be as sweet and tasty.
Blessings for a sacred and soulful Beltane.
If love has not yet found you … may love be on its
