A fire ceremony is a Native American practice that is usually performed every full moon.You do not have to wait for a full moon in order to do a fire ceremony, however. Fire Ceremonies are also wonderful during New Moons as well. This Native American ritual is easy, simple and inspiring.
To do a fire ceremony, each of us bring something to burn that we would like to rid the emotions associated with our past (on the Full Moon) or a prayer request of something new (during the New Moon), that will burn, turn to smoke and release into the ethers. This allows the past energy to move along to its highest spiritual progression path and the new prayer request to move along to its highest spiritual progression path. We may bring pictures, drawings, or intentions written on a piece of paper for the past or the newness. For the past, after we have burned and released the emotions associated with it, then we have something prepared that is written down on a clean sheet of paper. This would be something new that we would like to call forth from Great Spirit. For the newness, the prayer request is then burned and released into the ethers thereby replacing the past emotions with new ones.
