Closing Rituals are meant to close the space, the circle, which you held open during your dreamwork. Closure is important, because it delineates, designates and defines, the sacred space and time you are in for the journey. You are always connected to and interwoven with the energy and beings we identify as separate from self. Yet, the focus, direction and specific dynamics of those connections does change when we close our space.

Closing rituals, in this specific case of dreamwork, should be done when you wake up in the morning.

If you write in your journal, I recommend you close after that. Whatever the case, recording your dreams should always be done immediately. Reflections or receiving information in your waking state can be done before or after you close.

Otherwise, first thing when you wake up (after you drink some water, of course) is a good time.

If you plan on taking an Oil Infusion Bath in the morning, to refresh and reflect, I strongly recommend you Close, then prepare your bath and then Open again for the bath itself!

One Way

As I close this time, I thank all energies for their support.

I thank Mother Earth and her crystalline core. I thank her sacred trees, plants, animals, and beings. May She flow through me always. 

Mother Earth, I release you and your spirits from this circle of dreamwork, while I maintain my grounding connection to you in my everyday life.

I thank the Source of All. I release the focused energy of this circle, through my connection. My thread with Source remains, clearer than before. I thank you, Source, for your power of Spirit.

I am a column of light, uniting you two through my existence. It is through me, and my alchemy of such two beloved entities, that I honor you in this closing circle and in the moments of my life. I remember I am always connected to you. I merely need to be aware of it. I thank you for your energy and for this unbreakable connection…

Another Way

Face the North in a posture of dignified gratitude:

I thank and release the sacred guides and powers of the North. Land of beingness, of the dreaming, of the dead, and the infinite black womb canvas that beholds existence, enlightens and fills all creation. Animals, plants, stones and beings of my Northern face, I thank and release you from this dreamwork circle, while my kinship with you remains.

Face the West:

I thank and release the sacred guides and powers of the West. Land of feeling, dynamics, flow, movement, wishes, heart and sacred cycles. Animals, plants, stones and beings of my Western face, I thank and release you from this dreamwork circle, while my kinship with you remains.

Face the South:

I thank and release the sacred guides and powers of the South. Land of inuition, will, transformation, creation, protection and prophecy. Animals, plants, stones and beings of my Southern face, I thank and release you from this dreamwork circle, while my kinship with you remains.

Face the East:

I thank and release the sacred guides and powers of the East. Land of light, of thinking, flight, healing and magic. Animals, plants, stones and beings of my Eastern face, I thank and release you from this dreamwork circle, while my kinship with you remains.

Face the direction you felt called to for this final segment last night:

I thank my highest self. My true self, my whole self. Who is never released from the circle of my being. I thank and love you for your eternal contribution.

I am grateful for my Medicine, my guides, my friends and allies, for being with me on this journey. May your energy return to you threefold, a hundred fold, enlivened and cleared, wherever you are in the cosmos.

A Third Way

Breathe in, deeply, feeling for every drop of air, flowing through your nose.

Breathe out, slowly, slowly, slowly. Release every ounce of held energy.

And repeat as you read….

I thank the infinite and mysterious source of all energy. From the smallest particle to the largest star, I am grateful for my interconnectedness in existence. As I repeatedly expand my consciousness, this truth of the Web of Life remains the same.

I release the energy of anything and anyone but my self.

I thank the energy, form and imprints of all lives and things, as I release you from my space. It is in our shared existence in this immense canvas of space and time that I am always a part of, to which I am always connected. 

…continue to breathe and sit in the sounds of only yourself for a few moments, resonating with your own energy before you begin your day…
