Let these words by Hazrat Inayat Khan rest in the breath. [3 times]

Inhale              My body, heart and soul

Exhale             radiate the healing spirit of God


5. Offering four focuses for peace and healing.

After naming each focus, repeat silently Shafee (or O Divine Healer) on the in-breath, and Kafee (or O Divine Remedy) on the out-breath 5 times

After the five breaths, repeat out loud:

Ya Rahman, Ya Rahim (or O Compassionate and Merciful One) [3 times]


a)    We embrace and pray for all aspects of our being which are harming the planet through exploitation, pollution, and insufficient care

b)    We embrace and pray for all in the world who are harming the planet through exploitation, pollution, and insufficient care

c)    We embrace and pray for all in the world who are suffering from climate change and deforestation

9. Saint (Mother) Teresa of Kolkata said:

‘Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.’

Take a moment in silence to reflect upon a small thing we can do with great love, now in our lives, to better safeguard the planet.


10. To close, say the Gaelic Blessing, as if to each other and the whole world:

Deep peace of the running wave to you

Deep peace of the flowing air to you

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you

Deep peace of the shining stars to you

Deep peace of the Spirit of Peace to you                                                      [END OF RITUAL]

Dearest Friends

As you will probably know, the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) will take place in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.

This is a golden opportunity for us to hold all of the world’s political and business leaders and decision makers in our loving prayers of healing, that they may be inspired to create and implement ecological policies which are of vital importance to the health of the planet’s ecology.

It is also an opportunity to offer prayers of healing to all those who are suffering through climate change. Perhaps most important of all, it gives us a chance to reflect upon how we as individuals share responsibility for the well-being of the planet.

Therefore, we have created a short 10-minute ritual which may help us to focus and articulate our prayers.

This ritual is just a suggestion; please feel free to change and adapt it in any way feels right. We suggest making the ritual last for about ten minutes; that way people may find it easier to practise on a regular basis. However, some may feel inspired to spend longer on it, or extend the number of healing focuses: that would be great too!

We suggest holding the ritual as regularly as we can during the 12-day conference period. We can practise it on our own or with others. We also believe it is very important to continue with the ritual during the weeks and months following the conference.

With much love from the Conductors of Inayatiyya Healing UK.
