Charging A Magickal Item

Charging A Magickal Item

Charging A Magickal Item

Charging A Magickal Item. There are several perfectly effective and appropriate ways to consecrate tools and jewellery.

You can touch the item to symbols of the four elements, saying:

“I consecrate and bless this _______, by air (pass item through incense smoke or brush with a feather), by fire (pass item around the candle flame), by water (dip item in or sprinkle item with water and dry off), by earth (touch item to a stone, crystal, soil in a potted plant).”

You could anoint the item with oil.

Generally the item has three Gifu runes traced upon it with olive oil. The oil is then rubbed into the item, if it is wooden. If the item is metal, it is wiped clean with a soft, white, cotton cloth.

An item could be washed in lunar water–especially if you wanted to fill it with a lunar charge.

You could raise an energy sphere between your palms and put the energy into the item.

However, it is very common to charge, bless, or consecrate an item by sprinkling it with salt water and then passing it through the incense smoke.

Pick up the item and say:

“I bless and consecrate this __________that it may be filled with power and excellence.”

Then sprinkle the item with salt water. Wipe it clean with dry, white, cotton cloth. Add a pinch more of incense to the lit charcoal. (White sandalwood is especially good for consecrating items during a full moon, but certainly other incenses can be used too.) While passing the item through the incense smoke, say:

Aradia and Cernunnos, bless this ______ prepared in your circle. May it serve for good use only?

Be sure to bind the charge, just as you would bind a spell.

Yoga Moon ritual

Yoga Moon ritual

Yoga Moon ritual

The yoga Moon Ritual can be performed in several ways

To prepare for this ritual you need to get a small piece of amethyst and a strip of natural cloth or a delicate chain arrangement out of which you can make a head-band.

Yoga Moon ritual

Place the amethyst so that it will rest over the third-eye, the chakra or psychic centre in the middle of the forehead. 

You will need one of these for each member who is participating in the circle.  You will also need sandalwood oil and sandalwood incense, as well as a wand or a long-stem rose with the thorns removed. 

You will also need a chalice filled with spring water and a bowl of water as well as a bowl of salt.  You will need 6 white candles 2 for the altar and one for each of the 4 directions. 

You will also, need holders for them as well as matches and a snuffer or a silver teaspoon to snuff the candles. You will also need a burner for the incense or, if you are using joss-stick type incense, a small cup with salt or sand in it to stand the incense in. 

Everything but should be set up in advance and consecrated in some way.  Your altar should face the east, but be in the centre of the circle if at all possible.

YOU WILL ALSO NEED A BRASS OR SILVER, CLEAR-TONED BELL.

Priestess – rings bell.
All – chanted – OM
Priestess – “In the beginning was the word, the sacred sound, and from it arose SHAKTI, she who dances, the eternally changing one.”
All – chanted – “OM”.
Priestess – “We celebrate with Shakti tonight, in her changes, and allow her to dance through our lives, transforming us.”
All – chanted – “OM”.
The priestess takes the wand or the rose (hopefully if you have used the rose you had the sense to remove the thorns) and blesses the salt, saying
Priestess – This salt symbolizes the pure seed of Shiva, that eternal bliss that enters our awareness in meditation“.
Likewise she blesses the water saying
Priestess – “This water is the water of Shakti’s womb, which is within each of us, and which brings the pure awareness to birth in our conscious minds”.
She combines the two and blesses it with the wand saying
Priestess – “it is done”.
She then sprinkles the outer perimeter of the circle with this mixture moving counter-clockwise, as all chant together all- chanting – “KALI Durge Namo Nama”.

(This chant asks the female energy in the crone form to remove all the obstacles and impurities from us that we may become enlightened)

The priestess then lights the sandalwood incense and censes the outer
perimeter of the circle with it, moving clockwise.
All – chanting – “OM NAMAHA SHIVAIA”

(This Mantra honours the LORD – the Divine self within us).

The Priestess then goes to the East and raising her wand says –
Priestess – “Hail to the East” all- “Hail to the East”
Priestess – “We invite the Devas of the air to swirl and dance around us tonight bringing us new ideas from the dawn and renewed inspirations like a breath of fresh air.”
All – “so be it”
She goes to the south and raises her wand
Priestess – “Hail to the south”
All – “Hail to the south”
Priestess – “We invite the Devas of the south, of the noon-time, to dance around us tonight, giving us the gift of passionate love and warm friendship from the powers of fire”.”
All – “So be it”
She goes to the west and raises her wand
Priestess – “Hail to the West”
All – “Hail to the west”
Priestess – ” We invite the Devas of the West, of water and of the sun-set land to dance around us tonight giving us the gift of happiness that comes with love and friendship”
all- “So Be it”
She goes to the North and raises her wand again
says
Priestess – “Hail to the North”
all- “Hail to the North”
Priestess – “we invite the Devas of the North, of the earth, to come from the land of midnight and dance around us, giving stability and security to our lives and our magick this night”
All- “SO be it”
She returns to the East once more and salutes it again with her wand and
says,
Priestess “Hail to the East”
all- “Hail to the East, from whence wisdom arises”
She returns to face the altar in the centre of the circle and raises her wand high she says
Priestess – ” Come forth Shiva, through the Dance of Shakti, Come forth and reveal to us the Divine Self”
All – “So be it”

She chants the SACRED OM and anoints her 3d eye with Sandalwood oil then says,

Priestess – “So do we prepare the throne of Shiva”
She then passes the oil to her priest who does likewise, then he anoints each one in the circle as they individually chant the sacred OM, like the Priestess did to herself and to him, he says each time
Priest – after each anointing – “So do we prepare the throne of SHiva”
The Priestess then takes up the wand or the rose again, or an athame if this is preferred, and casts the circle 3 times from the East and moving clockwise while saying
Priestess – first casting – “I cast the light of the Pure awareness, of Shiva, to protect us and bless us”
All – “So Be it”
Priestess – second casting – “I cast the pure force, which is SHakti, to enfold us in a shield of love and bliss
All- “SO Be it”
Priestess – third casting – “I cast the power of Wisdom from the Gurus and Sages of all times and their wisdom gives us safety this night”
All- “So be it”
She then seats herself on the floor and invites everyone to done their headbands, placing them on the third-eye and she says
Priestess – :” This is the night when the moon is full and when the forces personified as Shiva and Shakti are balanced and harmonious.  Let us greet the Shakti and allow her energy to rise in us that it may be joined to her consort, Lord Shakti, that the pure awareness may break forth within us”
At this point some New-Age Music should be played and people should meditate for 15 – 20 minutes focusing on energizing their 3d eye and opening their Psychic awareness.
Feel the energies rising from the base of your spine up to the centre of your forehead.  Rejoice and know that Shiva and SHakti are being united within you.

After this has been done the Priestess says
Priestess – “Now picture the light emerging through the top of your head and connecting to the rainbow light that is now coming from everyone in the room to form a ball of multi-hued light above the centre of the circle see the light growing stronger and stronger  take a deep breath and on the count of three release your breath and know that the light is going out to enlighten the world and everyone in it”.
All – “So be it”

She waits a moment or two then arises, goes to the altar takes up her chalice.  The Priest takes up the wand or the rose and blesses the Chalice of Spring water saying
Priest –
” When Shiva and Shakti are one the pure fruit of enlightenment is born in us”
All”So Be it Om Namaha Shivaia”
Priest “Om Namaha Shivaia”

He then gives the Priestess the Chalice to sip and says to her
“Remember that THOU ART GODDESS”
She returns it to him to sip and says
“Remember that THOU ART GOD

The Priest then brings the chalice to each individual moving clockwise about the circle saying
“Remember that Thou art GOD” to the males and “Remember that thou art Goddess” to the females.

When this is done he returns the chalice to the Priestess who replaces it on the altar, she takes up the bell and rings it

ALL – chanted – “OM”
Priestess – “It is done”
They ground the energy returning it to the Earth She then raises her wand and says
Priestess – “Thanks be to Shiva and Shakti for these moments to share in their blissful union
May our awareness grow, becoming constant and bringing enlightenment”
All – “So be it”
The priest snuffs out the altar candles for her.
She goes to the North raising her wand and says
Priestess – “We thank the devas for dancing with us and sharing the bliss of this night”
All- “So be it”
She repeats this in the west then the south and finally the East, moving counter-clockwise.  Then she says
Priestess – “We bid farewell to all the Devas of the North and the west and the south and the east”
All- “SO BE IT”
Then from the east she takes her wand, rose, or athame and opens the circle moving counter-clockwise and says
Priestess – “We open the circle and bring our BLISS of Awareness into our daily lives, as a blessing to all”
All- “So Be it”.

The Priest rings the Bell and says
Priest – “the circle is now closed”.

A Ritual To Find Your Spirit Guides

A Ritual To Find Your Spirit Guides

A Ritual To Find Your Spirit Guides

Items Needed For The Spirit Guides Ritual

Altar Candle
Day Candle (Monday-white, Tuesday-red, Wednesday-purple, Thursday-blue, Friday-green, Saturday-black, Sunday-yellow)
Offertory Candles – 3 Violet Candles
3 White Candles

Tools
Athame to inscribe candles
Crystal ball or clear glass of water

Incense
anise, cardamom, and coriander.

Oil
jasmine, lemon, rose and sandalwood


Timing

Best done during the Mercury hour of the day, although any hour should work. Any moon phase is appropriate.

Preparation

Breathe deeply and build a ball of protective light around you. While soaking in your ritual bath, meditate on the whole ritual: the steps you will take and what you wish to say to your spirit guide when you make contact.

Ritual To Find Your Spirit Guides

Enter the circle in the Hour of Mercury. Light the incense. With the oil, dress the Altar Candle and the Day candle while concentrating on the purpose of the ritual. Light your Altar Candle and Day Candle and state your intent:

I am here to make contact with my Spirit Guides, and to acknowledge him or her.

With your Athame, inscribe Violet Candle 1 with the word “Spirit.” Dress it with oil. Light the Violet Candle 1, direct your energies into it and
say:

Here do I light the first Lamp of Spirit.
May its light reach out across the barriers from this world to the next. May it make contact with that World of Spirit into which we will eventually enter.

Take your censer or incense wand and swing it around, sensing the whole area around the altar while rhythmically repeating the word “Merge” and building up energy to focus. Replace the censer and pick up Violet Candle 2.

Inscribe it with the word “Spirit” and dress it with oil. Put it back on the altar, light it and say:

Here do I light the second Lamp of Spirit.
May its light also reach out across the barriers from this world to the next? May it make contact with that World of Spirit and help spread the light, illuminating the passageway between our worlds.

Again take the censer or incense wand and sense the entire area around while chanting the word “Merge.” Build up your energy to focus.

Take Violet Candle 3, inscribe it with the word “Spirit,” dress it with oil, charge with your energy, light it and
say:

Here do I light the third Lamp of Spirit.
May the light from these three lamps blend and grow, dispelling all darkness and lighting the way that my Spirit Guide may come to me and speak with me here today.

Inscribe the three white candles with the word “Truth” and anoint each candle with oil. Light the three candles in the order of 1, 2, 3, and say:

Here do I build Truth.

As these candles burn throughout this ritual, their power generating nothing but truth in all that transpires between this world and the next. Through these candles there is truth in all communications that come to me. Again cense the altar area while chanting “Merge.” Replace the censer and continue chanting. Sit comfortably while chanting, and gaze into the crystal ball, or the clear glass of water. Continue chanting until you feel it is right to let the chant taper off. Continue to quietly look into the crystal ball or glass not trying to picture anything. Keep your mind blank, so whatever comes will appear and will come in its own free will. Gaze into the centre of the crystal, there is no need to try not to blink. Look into the crystal and blink naturally. Try not to notice anything in your peripheral vision, just the centre of the crystal. Eventually a face or figure will appear. This may take a long time, or it may appear almost immediately. If it doesn’t come at all within approximately 20 minutes, abandon this attempt, extinguish the candles in the order in which they were lit, leave the altar set up, and try this ritual again in three days.

You should have results within a month at most.

When a figure does appear, ask if he/she is one of your Spirit Guides. You will hear an answer, you may not hear it out loud, or even see the figures lips move, but you will be aware of the answer. This is how most conversations will proceed. You will ask your questions mentally (or out loud) and the answer will be clear inside your mind. Ask if you have more than one Spirit Guide. If yes, ask them to appear also. You may ask anything you wish to know, but it is better to establish a connection first where your Spirit Guide may appear to you at any time, or at specific times, so that you can converse with any other spirits through him/her. When you have finished speaking with your guide, thank him/her and then sit for a moment with your eyes closed, meditating on all that you have learned. Extinguish the candles in reverse order to clear the circle.

Ritual Bath

Ritual Bath

Ritual Bath

You do not have to be preparing for a ritual to take a ritual bath.

You do not even have to be associated with any Earth based religion either, for a ritual bath is a great way of unwinding at the end of your busy day and can be enjoyed by any one from any walk of life.

I as a wiccan do take a ritual bath before my rituals, sabbats, and just when I feel like treating myself. If I have a tiresome day ahead I can plan my bath in my mind while carrying out my daily chores something to look forward to of my own making creating the atmosphere I desire when the time for my ritual bath arrives.

Many in the craft feel that the process of a ritual bath is to basically wash away all the negative energy that we have collected during our daily routine more of a spiritual event is seen in the bathing, but never should we pull the plug out of the used bath water until we are out and dried with our towel then and only then should we pull the plug out and let the water flow away with all the negative energy.

Myself and others I know have their very own ritual bath robes that only come out of the airing cupboard for the soul purpose of the ritual bath, I have seen special slippers, bath caps robes, towels, candles, incense, lotions, bubble bath, herbal shampoos, herbal bath salts all are tools or props to make our ritual bath a special occasion and why not we are worth it. You can allocate a special night just for yourself when your home is quiet, pick a time to take your ritual bath and also allocate just what time you will spend in your ritual bath. A good idea I use is to take my kitchen timer into the bathroom and sit it set to the bath time I require on the toilet cistern with toilet lid down lol, I forgot once and had to fish the timer out of the loo when it went off the vibration had made it move along the top of the cistern and drop in.

You can play music on your battery appliance NO MAINS VOLTAGE ALLOWED IN THE BATHROOM. The preparation of your ritual bath can be fun you can make it as elaborate or simple as you require for after all it is your bath your time and your energy.

Ok say I’m going to take my ritual bath just before one of my craft workings I will prepare the bath room in the following manner: my robe will be laid out in the bathroom with slippers and towel, candles are then placed each side of the bath taps and the bath water is slowly run after the plug is put in. I will then light my incense after which I will light one tea light candle and carefully move the candle deosil over the running water saying my own personal ritual words after which I will place the tea light candle down and move my hand in a deosil manner slowly through the smoke of the incense, now I place my kitchen timer in place and when the bath is to the leave I require the taps are turned off.

I now sprinkle a touch of salt of my choice into the water, this can be sea salt, or Epson salt. I sprinkle it into the bath in a deosil motion saying my magical words as I go. Depending on the type of ritual I will be performing I will pick my bath oil accordingly, I have a good stock of ready mixed oils, herbs, tinctures and salts to choose from many I have made myself which can be fun, but they can always be purchased from your local new age store, even choosing your bath treats can be fun. I would say that a ritual bath is a rite in its self and before getting into the bath I set my kitchen timer and give a few words of thanks to the elements that be then switching the light off continue with my ritual bath.

p.s. don’t forget to put the lid down on the loo lol.
