On May 17, 2017, International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, we made public something that we have been working on for a long time and that could, from spirituality, end an intolerance in the world.
If we look at the news and in our own environment we can see that loving in all its forms and possibilities still seems a crime. The Orlando tragedy, as well as those that occurred at the same time in Latin America, in the concentration camps in Chechnya, or in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Sudan. Coupled with the fact that being not heterosexual is punishable by death, or that in India women can be raped by their husbands, they are just some of the most mediatic examples of this serious situation. Currently only nine countries (Sweden, Malta, Montegro, Portugal, Israel, Mexico, Ecuador, South Africa and the Fiji Islands) contemplate non-discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in their constitutions. Still today, many people think that being homosexual, bisexual, transgender, or even being a woman is a disease. Only love has the cure for the true disease: hate and fear.
From the Sanctuary of Eros we want to join the Correllian Nativist Tradition Peace Net focusing our energy on a change of mentality on these issues. Starting to instill acceptance in this field, fostering a freer and safer love, will also end other types of discrimination and disputes. Let us begin this chain of prayer so that love and peace reach all the hearts of the world. Because if we love many of our problems, they will no longer be such, they will cease to exist forever.
Our sigil for peace is born from the mixture of the correllian peace symbol with the sigil of our sanctuary. Both can be used together but ours is focused in a more concrete way. This sigil is focused on establishing in hearts love (own and for others), acceptance, freedom, respect and peace and thereby replace jealousy, envy, hatred, anger, rancor, revenge, hostility and fury. The energy is focused on the hearts, so that they are capable of feeling differently and that something within the whole world clicks and leads us to peace in all areas.
The spiral is a vortex of energy of peace and love. It grows from the center drawing in deosil to complete seven laps including the one with the shape of a heart. Number seven has always been a power number in a multitude of magical-religious traditions and systems. In our case we use it so that the energy that we emit with our prayer, travels and manifests through the seven planes of existence to create a profound change.
The arrows in the original Correllian symbol represent the four directions in which the energies of our prayer are going to spread. Here the arrows are also the arrows of Eros, which will point to the heart of each person to leave in it the energy that we are commanded. They also take the colors of the rainbow flag to add even more meaning.
The rainbow flag, or flag of freedom, was used by the hippie movement and was later adopted by the LGBTQ collective. The original is said to have been designed by Gilbert Baker, who waved it at the 1978 San Francisco Pride Parade. These colors together have become a symbol of the struggle for acceptance, freedom and love, so by including them in our particular sigil for peace, it endows it with the power of chromotherapy. Each color represents a basic idea, and it is in each of those fields, where we want love, understanding, acceptance, freedom and peace to settle.
Pink is for sexuality.
Red is for life.
Orange is for healing.
Yellow is for light and joy (sunlight).
Green is for nature.
Cyan is for magic and art.
Blue is for serenity.
Indigo is for the spirit.
How to join our prayer chain?
Fridays have always been associated with love and that is why we want to take advantage of those energies to unite them with that of our prayer. Every Friday at 20:00 (in your local time) start praying. Simply light a white candle, engrave the symbol on it, make the light of the flame pass through the sigil by painting it on a glass candle holder or in some other way. Put the candle on top of it or just in front of it. Take a deep breath, relax and feel peace and love gently flood you with each inspiration. Recite the prayer and visualize how the energy spreads everywhere, all over the world, all over the world. Let peace and love flood you. The change starts with you.
