who only pushed from without?”

Oil of Catechumens, Sacred Chrism, Oil of Anointing of the Sick

Chrism Mass &
Sacred Healing Circle
Holy Thursday April 18, 2019

The Sacred Oils used in the Sacraments (Anointing, Baptism, etc.) are Blessed and Consecrated in the most Holy days leading to Easter.

Be enfolded in the healing energy and the physical Presence of the Christ in Holy Communion.
The Ritual of the Metaphysical Mass includes the Invocation of Archangels, Attunements, and the Energetic assistance of Saints and Ascended Masters who choose to be present to gift us with their charisms. Mass includes a Meditation with Channeled information all under the direction of Christ. The silences allow those attending to be present to the energies and Grace from Elohim. The Sacrament of Anointing will be offered after Communion. The Celebration of Mass facilitates and deepens a meditative state in those attending.

To participate fully, we ask that children are over the age of 11 (unless they are receiving a Sacrament of Initiation).

New for 2019 – Spiritual Mentoring

In the monastic Celtic tradition the “anam cara” – (“soul – healer”) helped guide a person on their Spiritual Path and within to their Divinity.

Sacraments

In being present to God, one consciously opens a pathway to Grace.
Sacraments flow this energy of Grace into us physically as well as Spiritually
through the physical and tangible signs and elements –
water, oil, bread, wine, fire of incense and candle flame, touch.
Beyond symbols, these are actual channels to transform and sanctify.
In this way we achieve union with God and our God-Self.

“Sacraments leave their indelible imprints in the inner and higher worlds,
visible to angels and the spiritually awakened”.
“Divine Light and Fire”, pg 72, Peter Roche De Coppens


Baptism
jesus-baptism

The Rite includes the Invocation of the Archangels as well as one’s own Guardian Angel of Protection, energetically seal and protect, Activates and awakens the first Sephira of Malkuth on the Tree of Life, Consecrates one to the Light, embeds a cross of Light into the Auric field, anointing with Consecrated Oil to seal in the Divine Light and Love that has flowed into the Initiate.

Baptism is not membership into “the church” but into the Mystical Body of Christ.
Babies and children receive Spiritual protection as an Initiate.

Reconciliation (Absolution)glory-cloud1

In this journey one climbs from Yesod to Hod to overcome negative thinking, with the awareness of how our actions or lack of affect the other planes and dimensions, understand the responsibility and identify where one can do better in life, and then travels across Hod to Netzach.

Confirmationholy-spirit-fire

Otherwise known as the Sacrament of the Seal.

Jesus received a three-fold anointing as Priest, King, and Prophet. Through Confirmation we become sharers in Jesus’ Priesthood, prophetic ministry, and kingly dignity.

On the Tree of Life, one climbs from Malkuth to Yesod from the inner and higher worlds of imagination and the mind, gaining conscious self-control over one’s thoughts, and is now guided by the Christ within.

Confirmation is the second of the three Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism the first and Holy Communion the third). Confirmation is regarded as the perfection of Baptism because the Baptized are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.

The laying on of hands, which signifies the descent of the Holy Spirit, is the central act in the Sacrament of Confirmation.The essential element, however, is the anointing of the confirmand (the person being confirmed) with chrism accompanied by the words “Be sealed with the Gift of the Holy Spirit”.

This seal is a consecration, representing the safeguarding by the Holy Spirit of the graces conferred at Baptism. Confirmation increases and deepens all of the graces granted at Baptism.

The 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit are:

Wisdom
Understanding
Counsel = Intuition
Fortitude
Knowledge
Piety
Reverence (used to be referred to as “Fear of the Lord”)

holding-hands-1Officiating at Weddings and Commitment Ceremonies

There are many forms of ceremonies to use, so a couple needs to decide what “flavor” they would like this to be and the service will be crafted specifically for you. As a Sacrament, you each confer it on each other, as officiant +SummerHawk is there to Bless and witness.

The ceremony can be as formal or informal as you choose. You can choose traditional Catholic/ Christian or include Native American (such as the invocation of the 4 directions (or Archangels) ), Celtic with handfasting and jumping over the broom, Metaphysical elements, etc., can be incorporated.
You can write your vows (if you’d like).

A Ceremony can be used as the public celebration and gathering with family and friends after a civil ceremony.

State and local regulations need to be checked to verify the legality in place of a civil ceremony.

To schedule please call 610.954.0885 E.S.T. or email info@summerhawkwolf.com

candleOfficiating at Funerals

The funeral or Celebration of Life is Sacred Space and gives an opportunity for family and friends to gather, to acknowledge their sorrow, to remember, and to bring healing to their hearts.

We celebrate the Loved One as a Spiritual Being who was on a journey to learn and to grow while incarnate on the planet.

We begin the journey of the Loved One into another aspect of their Spiritual development, and the journey of family and friends without them being present physically. Society sees this as a farewell but it is the beginning of the re-evaluation of one’s life without that person. If the relationship was complicated then therefore so is the process of grieving and mourning.

The service can be traditional, or a blending and incorporating of one or more spiritual traditions. It includes inclusive language – names of GD – Beloved – Great Spirit – Source – Elohim – Father/Mother God – and is tailored to the faith and beliefs of the family.
