Sacred Needle Ritual / Play Piercing
‘Play piercing (…) can focus your awareness down to the point of a needle or expand it to include the universe, the All. It’s a tool, an art, an undeniable source of immediate experience. When needles are involved, everything falls away. It’s you, your other(s), and the needle. The stage for alchemy is set.’ Deborah Addington
At times in my life when I felt I needed let go of something significant or call in and affirm a new energy, I have enlisted the help of needles: temporary piercings with hypodermic needles, which were set with a clear and powerful intention within a safe and sacred space.
Such needle rituals have been some of my deepest transformative experiences- hence, needles have become a medicine which I love to include in rituals for others.
These powerful tools bring us fully into the now, demand that we whole-heartedly commit to our intentions and offer the gift of release, energetic shifts and deep transformation.
‘The night I received snake medicine was a real initiation. During the needle ritual Eva embodied the snake priestess and thanks to her wisdom and guidance this ritual was one of the most powerful and deep experience I have had. The space was beautiful and safely held, allowing me to surrender totally to the magic and the ‘bite’. I felt a powerful elixir running through my heart and my whole body. What a healing journey…what a gift!’ Maeva Poornima, 36 sex therapist
What happens during a needle ritual?
We will start by talking about your intention for this ritual and I will ask you some general health questions, explain the practicalities of the piercing and answer any questions you might have. We will then create a safe and sacred space together.
During the ritual I use hypodermic needles to create temporary piercings – each needles is imbued with an intention and a blessing before it is set.
Sometimes to be pierced by a single needle can be the centre of the entire ritual, or you might want to be pierced in an elaborate pattern of needles that symbolises your intention.
To allow someone to pierce you, is an act of great trust- I hold you in a very safe space during the ritual and also afterwards when there will be time to chat and ground.
Please contact me if you would like to talk about whether a needle ritual could be for you.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
‘The needle ritual was extremely powerful. We looked at thought patterns I had about money, ancestral patterns and how I still held a vow of poverty in my work. I was beautiful how the space was set up and I felt extremely held during the ritual. I felt so much love pouring from Eva’s hands, eyes and heart as she put the needles in my body with clear intention. I cried at times as the needles were going in- I had such a release! I felt on that day that something really shifted, that some shackles came off and a strong sense that life is going to change, that I am actually bringing this into my life now.
And lots of magical things were falling into place shortly afterwards: I got offered work, I am doing more tantra sessions and so much has shifted since then. I don’t feel worries about money, but know that things are transforming all the time. A new story has been written. I deeply trust Eva as a facilitator and practitioner and I am so grateful to her for this ritual.’ Bayari Lou Beegan
