Dear Clovis,

I need something to do whilst waiting for dead people to get better! I have tried kicking, throwing rocks and being rude but this did not help much. And when they woke up they were really cross!

What should I do.

Love Bob

Hello Bob,

Well, I would advise against your current methods, just because I think they are quite dis-respectful. However, I would advise the following.

I'd carry six candles with you in case of such things.

While performing the resurrection, set the six candles up around the dead. Either in addition to the four you need, or including, up to you.

Then, give praise to each of the six virtues, Hope, Faith, Peace, Courage, Mercy and Love

Also, being the faith of Unity, I would get the friends of the fallen involved in the rite too. Maybe ask them to say some words, maybe ask them to light the candle, and as they each light a candle speak the words "It is better to Light a candle, than to curse the darkness"

Then, say some words appropriate to why you want the person bought back, and praise to the Spirits of Light who will be guiding their spirit back to the Land of the Living.

I hope that helps somewhat.

Clovis

Bob - I would also suggest a seventh candle, outside the protection, to lure away evil spirits.

A red or black one seems to work well too.

Bob,

I think Clovis's ideas are rather lovely, but do take care not to lose your individuality. I know little of ritual but one thing that I am certain of is that our faith is very much particular to each of us, and it would be wrong to ignore your personality entirely.

Perhaps you could ask everyone to place a rock in the circle of protection, to help ground the fallen one's soul back to this plane. A little something like that - not throwing them, mind - would be quite fitting.

Light bless you,

Ellareen
