Walpurgis Night - A Powerful Beltane Ritual

Awaken your life energy

April 30th is Walpurgis Night and on the night of May Day Beltane, the Celtic festival of the year, is also celebrated. Beltane heralds summer. It is said that the borders between the worlds are very permeable on this night. April 30th is therefore very well suited to get in touch with your power being and also to look into your future.

In addition, your sleeping sexual energy or life energy can be awakened very well on this day. The maypole originally symbolized exactly that: the fertility that comes back into nature and should also be awakened in us humans. It is not necessarily about having children, but fertility is a symbol for many areas of life.

Self-reflection & heart path: Use the powerful Beltane energy

Perhaps you have already done our other two rituals for the past annual festivals of Imbolc and Ostara.

We found our vision and sowed the seed here, which was allowed to grow into a small tree over time. We have recommitted to our goals and celebrated what has already come into our lives.

At Beltane it is time to take another close look at our path and to question it. Which of our goals are still in line with us? As we know, everything is changeable and that is also the case here. Sticking rigidly to a set goal is just as pointless as throwing in the towel too soon. Everything that is no longer consistent can go and everything else can continue to grow and thrive on fertile soil.

We would like to use the powerful energy of this day and get support from our power being in order to progress strengthened and full of clarity on our heart path.


Instructions for a powerful Beltane ritual

Ritual step 1 cleaning

An important element for Beltane is water.
On the evening of the 30th, take a cleansing salt bath and use it to wash away any old baggage. If that is too much work for you, you can also take a bowl of salt water and wash your hands in it.

Go inside yourself and ask yourself: Which of my goals are no longer in line with my heart? What am I holding onto that wants to be let go to make room for growth?

Ritual step 2 place of power

Prepare your Ritual Cacao with lots of love and awareness.* Then make yourself comfortable in your place of power. Set out candles and power items, and have a fireproof bowl ready.

Ritual step 3 Cacao moment

Ask the Cacao Spirit and all your power beings for support in today's ritual. Invite that you may again align yourself clearly for your heart path. Drink your cacao sip by sip and feel into your heart.

Ritual step 4 Beltane fire

If you have a garden or balcony, you can also start your Beltane fire outside.

Write down everything that happened to you during the salt bath and throw the papers into the fire. Take your time here and feel how your inner space expands with everything you put into the fire.

Ritual Step 5 Invite your power being(s).

Go back to your power place. Put on some music that suits you. Calm down and take a few deep breaths into your heart.

Place a hand on your heart and imagine yourself opening the portal to your inner garden. look around here What do you see? what do you smell How are you feeling here?

Say the sentence inwardly: I invite my power being(s) to be here with me and to show me how I can continue to follow my heart's path.

The nature of the being can be an indication of what qualities you are currently cultivating in yourself and what you may still need.

Stay here as long as feels good. Let your power being guide you and see how you feel when you imagine continuing to pursue your vision.

Ritual step 6 Get specific

Come back from your inner garden and close the door to your inner space. Now, intuitively, write down everything that came into your head and heart during your journey.

Reframe your vision and goals and write down 3 concrete steps you can take over the next few days to get closer to them.

Ritual Step 7 Complete the Beltane Ritual

Thank all the forces that supported you and close the ritual. You can do this by tapping your body once and shaking yourself.


I wish you a wonderful Beltane night and a nice May 1st and I would be happy to see you again on June 21st at the summer solstice for the Litha Cacao Ritual.
