4. Bali Permissions Ritual

The island of Bali is known as the island of Gods and Goddesses and Balinese Hinduism has been actively practiced for over 600 years. The island is one of the most powerful and ritually sanctified places on Earth, an unbroken prayer field of over 14,000 public temples and millions of people making prayer offerings daily. It is an extremely beautiful and humbling place. Those who live in Bali know that nothing works without the blessing of the Gods, and with the blessing of the Gods, everything works. Balinese culture is extremely honouring and reverent, and the basic approach to life includes asking permission for everything. Those who take the time to go into deep prayer and ask Bali’s permission to visit her (as well as permission for any other activities you seek to undertake, such as presenting or facilitating) will have a phenomenally different experience than those who do not take the time to enter into this prayerful conversation with her.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Time: Approx 40 min (or as long as a stick of incense burns) in a quiet and private space

Flowers: Yellow, Red and Mixed Colors

Altar Space: Either indoor alter or outdoor spaceSacred objects of personal importance: crystals, feathers, statues etc. fruits/offerings

Music - Mantra music or Bali Ceremony music is great.

1. Ask for Permission to Do the Ritual - Ask Bali for Permission to do the ceremony. 2. Smudge yourself with Palo Santo or Sage 3. Light your Incense.

Blessing 1:

Facing your altar, offering your hands above your head, coming humbly empty and available for the Divine - Ask God to make you an empty vessel. Offer your gratitude to Bali.

Blessing 2:

Holding the yellow flower(s) above your head - acknowledge the Divine Light and ask that it may shower upon your life and the lives of those in your life. Ask for your life to be illuminated. Afterwards - place the yellow flowers in your hair.

Blessing 3:

Raise your red flowers above your Head and give Gratitude to the Spirit of Bali, the Guardian spirits of Bali, Your Guides, Angels, Ancestors, and Gods & Goddesses you work with -- only offering Gratitude. Afterwards place the red flowers in your hair.

Blessing 4:

Raise your multi-coloured flowers above your head & put all of your prayers onto the altar and ask for your desires for permission, and to be blessed and supported. Put these flowers in your hair.

Blessing 5:

With your hands empty above your head - give gratitude to the Infinite and to all Beings who have assisted you.

After these five blessings, sit in meditation to receive any guidance or messages that come through. Let the light work on you!

Seal the space by smudging one more time, touching your forehead to the ground in reverence.

ADDITIONAL SUGGESTIONS

GAYATRI MANTRA

The most frequently chanted mantra in Bali is the Gayatri Mantra. If you feel so called, chanting it will help bring you into resonance with the prayer field. The mantra can also be chanted when making your offerings and raising your hands in prayer. Deva Premal has a great version here:

DIRECTIONAL TEMPLES

The island of Bali has 9 directional temples, known as

Kahyangan Jagat

, whose role is to protect the island from what does not serve. These temples are Bali’s energetic gatekeepers and they govern the comings and goings to and from Bali. You may wish to offer your respects to these 9 directional temples, and more specifically Bali’s largest and most important temple, Pura Besakih, when requesting permission to visit or conduct activities in Bali.

EXQUISITE MOVIE

Perhaps the best recent film to truly capture and transmit a hint of Bali’s fullness is

BALI: LIFE IS AN OFFERING.

This stunning film contains beautiful transmissions, will help you to understand Bali before coming to visit her, and can be easily watched online here for a dollar:
