The Anamchara Ritual is Celtic in origin.
Three identical candles
One glass of wine
Each person at a time takes a sip of the glass of wine and says:
I am your friend
I am your teacher
I am your student
I am your dependent
I am your solace
I am your shield
I am your child, sister and mother
Then they light their candle.
Once everybody has done this, they say together in >unison:
By this ritual I am bound to you as your friend of
the soul - your Anamchara, your soul sister/soul
friend. See our flames shine brightly, burning
hotter and stronger together than they can
All my wisdom and all my secrets I share with you
for as long as this life endures. Until we meet in
the next life, SO MOTE IT BE!
