NEW BEGINNING SPELL
Just before sunrise, go outside with some heather and a feather. Face East, light incense, and hold feather in hand while concentrating on the new day ahead as a new beginning.
"Flight of feather, Scent of Heather Give me cleansing With this beginning!"
Blow feather from hand and let the wind carry it away. Watch the sunrise and feel its rays cleansing you for the new day ahead. It is done.
BATH SPELL FOR NEGATIVITY
Place 1/2 cup vinegar, a bunch of fresh rue and 1 tablespoon of salt in your bath. Light a white and a blue candle. Imagine yourself surrounded by blue light, giving you positive energy. Visualize all of the negative energy leaving your body through every pore.
SELF PURIFICATION RITUAL
Useful for alleviating sorrow.
A bowl of bottled spring water or New Moon Water
Cast a circle, and then invoke the elements and the Lord and Lady. Sit quietly and think about what you want to clear out of your aura. When you are ready, add three good-sized pinches of salt to the water and stir widdershins (counter clockwise).
Breathe deep into the bowl and as you do, let your fears and doubts pour into the water. Breathe them into the salt water where they will dissolve away.
Do this until you feel that the negative energy has passed out of your body.
Next, hold the bowl into the air and visualize a gold or white light flowing into the water, transforming the negative vibrations and cleansing them.
Carry the bowl to the sink and flush the water down the sink with cold, running water. Smudge yourself with either jasmine or lavender incense (or another scent that promotes peace) and open the circle.
WINTER DAWNS CLEANSING RITUAL
(Anoint head with salt water)
"I cleanse my thoughts that they might be pure and honest."
"I cleanse my voice, that all I say might be good."
"I cleanse my heart, that it might be open, giving and full of light. Grant that I may give freely of my love to others."
"I cleanse my hands, that I may use them only for good."
"I cleanse my feet, that they may take me far in life. That my journeys may be filled with love light and peace."
BATH FOR PROTECTION AND PURIFICATION
Steep one teaspoon of dried basil in a cup of boiling water. Leave for five minutes, and then strain. Add the liquid to your bath water to bring a protective and cleansing influence. This herbal bath is particularly useful to rid oneself of the negative feelings left by contact with those who are controlling.
SACRED SPACE PURIFICATION SPELL
To purify a sacred space, during the sixth hour after sunrise or the first or eighth hour
after sunset consecrate an aromatherapy bowl or small cooking pot by passing it through the smoke of frankincense and sprinkling it with blessed water, saying:
" I consecrate this container to aid in my Craft, that the spell I now weave will take hold and last."
Heat spring water in the bowl over a tea light or in the pot on a burner. When the water is hot, add the following herbs, speaking after each
"Let all negativity be deflected from this place";
One bay leaf:
"as the sent of this leaf moves through this place may purification enter into space";
One teaspoon sage:
"Though sage I now make this spell manifest, that with peace and protection this space will be blessed. For as I will, so mote it be!"
BANISHING AND CLEANSING RITUAL
Point your Athame at the sky, and then at the earth. Then pointing Athame horizontally either spin 360 or walk around the perimeter with the Athame held out in a threatening manner.
"Spirits of evil, unfriendly beings, unwanted guests, Be gone! Leave us leave this place; leave this Circle, that the Goddess and the God may enter.
Go, or be cast into the outer darkness!
Go, or be drowned in the watery abyss!
Go, or be burned in the flames!
Go, of be torn by the whirlwind!
By the power of the Mother and the Horned One We banish you! We banish you! We banish you!"
Sprinkle the perimeter with salt and water.
ROOM CANDLE CLEANSE
White candle and holder Salt
Place the candle in the middle of the room. Sprinkle the salt in a circle deosil around the candle.
Light and say:
"Creature of wax Creature of fire, listen to me! Hear my desire! Cleanse this room and blast away all negativity with harm to none. So shall it be."
Leave to burn for at least 1 hour.
ROOM BLESSING/CLEANSING/PROTECTION SPELL
This is a bare-bones, generic spell. Use when the energies in your home or in a particular room start feeling "off" or negative. This spell can be tweaked to suit your particular method of working or use as is.
You will need:
Small cauldron or other fire-proof bowl for burning herbs - one that you are able to carry
Your favorite protection oil
Clearing herbs such as sage, cedar, rosemary, etc
Charcoal tablet (a half tablet would suffice)
Trace the pentagram starting from the top point - in this spell you are invoking Spirit.
Meditate before you begin - make sure you're in the right state of mind to proceed.
An Alpha state is the best.
Light charcoal in bowl/cauldron and when burning, drop a pinch or two of your clearing herbs into the cauldron. Take a minute to take in the energy of the herbs. Carry the vessel around the room - paying special attention to corners, closets, and places negative energy seems to linger.
Project a clear, clean, white light with your mind and say:
"By my will I banish all darkness and let in the light." (Repeat around the room)
When you've thoroughly cleansed the room, return to the center and put down your cauldron.
Take up the oil and go to the North. Trace a pentagram on the wall (window sill, door frame, etc.)
"From the North I call to Thee. Blessings of the Spirit Be upon this place."
Go to the East and say:
"From the East I call to Thee. Blessings of the Spirit Be upon this place."
Continue to the South and West, changing the blessing accordingly.
When complete, return to the center of the room and place more herbs on the charcoal. Stand still a bit and feel the energy of the room/space. Again, project white light outward, mentally filling all the nooks and crannies.
When the energy feels right to you say:
"This room is sealed Protected from harm. Light replaces darkness As I will, so mote it be."
Note: This spell can obviously be expanded for an entire house. Just begin in the center of the house instead of the center of the room. If you are uncomfortable calling on "Spirit" for protection, you can substitute the name of your Deity.
WHITE CANDLE SPELL FOR BLESSING
Get a white candle -- either a plain one (offertory, pillar, or taper) or a figural one in the gender of the person you want to bless. Carve the person's full name on the candle, and then dress it with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil. For more power, you may place a name-paper of the person, or a photo, or some personal item of theirs (such as a bit of hair or a snippet of clothing) either under the candle or next to it. One easy way to do this is to place the paper or personal concerns under an overturned saucer and put the candle on top of the saucer. Burn a portion of the candle every day for seven days, pinching it out between burnings.
As you light it each day, say this:
"[Name], may you be blessed
May all good things come to you
May nothing whatsoever harm you
May your heart be light
May your travels be safe
May your health be good
May your mind be sound
May your friendships sustain you
May you be blessed in every way"
* If you have a special request for this person (such as that they find a lover, get a good job, come home safely from a war, or whatever), just add it to the list. Some people use a large pillar-type candle and keep it going for longer than seven days. They may make a habit of burning such a candle every day -- or once a week, on Sundays for as long as their friend or relative needs help, even doing so for months at a time. If the candle is large and it is to be burned in this way, it should be re-dressed with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil once a week: after the initial dressing, you can drop a tiny bit of oil into the "well" or hole in such a large candle just before lighting it each time.
This ritual is a self cleansing ritual. It was designed to cleans the body, mind & spirit of residual negativity after being involved in magical battles (specifically, exorcism). Components & Tools:
A tub to draw a bath
A white candle
Essential Oil of Myrrh
Essential Oil of Frankincense
Sea Salt (fine, bath salts)
Place the white candle so that it's light can shine upon you when you are in the tub.
Mix 9 drops Myrrh and 3 drops Frankincense into 1/8 cup sea salt. Be certain that you will not be disturbed for at least 20 minutes, preferably an hour. Shut off the phone ringers, etc.
Invoke your sacred space. (Using what means is appropriate for your practice) Light the candle.
Recite the following:
"Spirits of Fire do I call upon thee. Send thy divine fire and burn through the darkness. Shed thy light upon me and clear the shadows of my soul."
Draw a bath of hot water. (The warmest you can comfortably get into)
Recite the following:
"Oh spirits of water do I call upon thee. Enter this sacred space and lend me thy cleansing powers. From the waters welcome and to water we return."
As the tub fills (about half way), sprinkle the salt into the waters.
Recite the following:
"Oh spirits of earth do I call upon thee. Ground and disperse all that is not of light. Mix with me and cleans me of the weight of darkness."
Once fill, settle into the tub. Relax and feel the light and warmth.
Breath in the vapors of the oils and recite the following:
"Oh spirits of ear do I call upon thee. Thou art my breath and my life. Let me breath in thy light and release the smoke of darkness."
Breath and feel the energy about and within you. Feel the light of fire burning away that which clings to you. Let the water's warmth wash through you, and lift away the darkness. Feel the salt cling to the darkness and ground it for you. Feel your lungs fill with light and carry out the fog of darkness as you exhale. Remain in the bath till you feel that all the darkness that will release has left you. Stand, or kneel, and pull the plug from the tub.
As the water drains, recite the following:
"As welcome from the waters so shall we return. Oh earth and water, take from here the darkness. Disperse it and ground it. Let it weigh upon me no more."
Dry off. Put out the candle. Thank the divine and the spirits & open your sacred space.
RITUAL OF SELF-BLESSING
You will need:
A small votive candle and holder (white is always good, but use color if you feel called to do that)
An incense stick, cone, or herbs (such as sage or thyme) to burn a small container of water
A small container of salt
I find that a sugar and creamer set works very well for this. These can be purchased quite reasonably and set aside just for this use. This is a ritual which connects you to the deepest levels of healing. It also connects you to the four elements and their energies. In this way it is most helpful for dealing with the shamanic elemental energies of Nature.
The candle represents the element of Fire
The incense or herbs represent Air
The container of water is Water
The container of salt is Earth.
Beyond that, these elements reflect your own needs. The element of Fire reflects your relationships, protection, ideas and achievements. The element of Air reflects your creativity, spirituality, inspiration and philosophies. The element of Water reflects your emotions, intuition, dream states, psychic gifts, and healing balance. The element of Earth reflects your practicality, knowledge, sacred wisdom, and growth.
Find a quiet time and place where you will not be disturbed. You may make this as ceremonial or as informal as you choose. Light the incense and take a few moments to consider the element of Air. Consider the gifts that Air reflects in you.
Light the candle and take a few moments to consider the element of Fire. Consider the gifts that Fire reflects in you.
Take a few moments to consider the element of water and how it reflects in you.
Take a few moments to consider the element of Earth and how it reflects in you.
Very gently, pour the water into the container of salt. If you are using herbs as incense, you may sprinkle a few in the water and salt mixture. Stir the salt and water with your fingers. Consider the blending of elements that creates life itself. Consider the balance of elements and their attributes in your life. Take a few moments to do this. Facing the candle, dip your fingers in the water mixture and touch your forehead (3rd eye area).
"Bless me Mother, for I am your child." (The original was written for the Goddess as Mother. Another deity name can be substituted here, or simply say "Spirit."" src="http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/wink.gif">
Now dip your fingers in the water mixture and touch the area around your eyes carefully.
"Bless my eyes that I may see you."
Dip again and touch your nose.
"Bless my nose that I may breathe your essence."
Dip again and touch your ears.
"Bless my ears that I may hear your wisdom."
Dip again and touch your mouth.
"Bless my mouth that I may speak your name."
Dip again and touch your heart.
"Bless my heart that I may feel your love."
Dip again and touch your lower abdomen.
"Bless my cauldron center that I may create harmony."
Dip again and touch your feet.
"Bless my feet that I may walk in balance."
Dip again and rub your hands together.
"Bless my hands that I may share your healing in my work."
Take all the time you need to concentrate on the elements before you. Focus your attention on the candle and visualize healing light flowing into you. Feel strength emerging from deep inside yourself. Breathe deeply and capture that moment. Connect with the source of strength and healing. When you feel you are finished, blow out the candle. It is good to leave the incense burning if you can. Air is a communicating element, and smoke is transformation. The incense carries the messages of healing and strength to Spirit.
If you have used herbs, it is good to return the ashes to Nature. In this way, you are grounding the energy, bringing the message and the transformation to earth. Make sure the ashes are cold; then place them at the roots of a tree or bush if possible. If not, place them in soil or sand. The salt and water mixture can be used very effectively in several ways. You may wash your gemstones or other stones in this. Crystals love this, since their energy is so personally connected to yours. You may save the mixture and dab a little on your third-eye area every day for a few days, as a reminder. You may pour the mixture into your bath for a gentle energizer. When the bathwater drains, visualize a connection between yourself and the energies of Mother Ocean. You may return the mixture to earth by pouring it on soil or sand. Remember, plants don't thrive in salt; so keep the mixture clear of plants. You may sprinkle the mixture throughout your house to seal in positive energies and protection.
"May the fruit of our lives be bound and sealed to Thee,
O Mother, O Woman Eternal
who holdest the inmost life of each of Thy daughters
between the hands upon Her Heart"
We swear by Peace and Love to stand,
Heart to Heart and Hand to Hand.
Mark, O Spirit, and hear us now,
confirming this, our Sacred Vow.
~Druidic Prayer of Unity~
