Magick Elemental Purification Of Store Or Dwelling Purpose: This rite utilizes the powers of the four elements (Earth, Air, Fire and Water) to cleanse the store or dwelling. At a time when the business is closed, assemble the main Members of the group and on a table assemble the following items. You Will Need: 1 bowl of seal salt 1 incense burner or smudge stick 1 white candle 1 bowl of holy water 1 wand 1 black candle 1 crystal (cleansed prior to use) cedar branches (optional) Procedure: Light the incense and the candle. Stand before the table and open yourself to the dwelling. Feel its energies. Really tune into any impressions you receive. After a moment, hold your hands over the assembled tools and say something like the following (Feel Free To Improvise). Say: I Charge you, tools of the elements to sweep my dwelling clean of all ill and bane. This is my will, so mote it be. With the wand Say: We dedicate these tools to the goddess and god to help us in our work. Touch the wand to the sea salt, the holy water, the incense or smudge, the crystal, the lighted white candle. Say: We dedicate these tools to the god and goddess and the five elements. We dedicate them to helping us in our work of healing meditation, divination and inner growth. This next part of the ritual is to banish any negative energies around and in the store or dwelling. The group forms a procession walking counter clockwise through every room in the store or dwelling, carrying the smudge stick and the lit black candle. Say: We banish from this place all pain and negativity. We neutralize negative or mischievous entities from this place. We send you to the goddess and the god, to heal you and take you where you need to go. If you have cedar branches available, place one in each room before you leave it. Now, go outside the dwelling and with your procession again walking counter clockwise, repeat the verse again still smudging and burning the black candle, walk around the dwelling. If available place cedar branches in front of doorways. Now put out the black candle and smudge stick (incense). You are still outside the dwelling. Turn clockwise in the procession. Light a white candle and burn sweet smelling incense. Walk around the dwelling. Say: We invoke to this place protection, prosperity, peace, healing, wellness, and creativity. Place a flower or crystal at each corner of the dwelling. Now the procession re-enters the dwelling, and again walking clockwise in each room with the white candle and sweet incense repeats the above verse. If you have a flower or crystal to leave in each room as you exit, do so. The group forms a circle around the table where you first began. One person (the one in charge) leads the group. She takes the dish of salt, and moving clockwise, leads the group throughout each room. Say: By the powers of Earth, I cleanse this dwelling. The group is to follow her and repeat what she says. Make sure to do all the corners, windows, doorways of each room as you go. Imagine, seeing the salt burning away negativity as you sprinkle and toss it. Your purification will be as strong as your visualization. Next, set the salt down and pick up the censor or incense, carry it from room to room (The same route you used with the salt...walking following and repeating) Be sure to hold it before all windows and doors, and in the corners of each room. Visualize the smoke clearing away all negativity and evil. Say: By the powers of Air, I cleanse this place. Once you have walked through the whole dwelling, return the censor or incense to the table. Take the lit white candle on the same route. Again, visualize moving clockwise and holding the flame before windows and doors, seeing it shining forth with magical power, burning away negativity. Say: By the powers of Fire, I cleanse this place. Replace the candle on the tale and take up the bowl of holy water. Then sprinkle the holy water throughout the house, in every corner, and at exits and entrances. Toss some drops at and through windows. See and know that the holy water is washing away ills with a tidal wave of magical power. Say: By the powers of Water, I cleanse this place. Set the bowl of holy water on the table. Stand for a few moments and feel the difference in the dwelling. It should feel calmer, more peaceful, fresh and clean. If not, repeat the ritual Group again forms a circle around the table. You will need four candles to represent the four elements/directions... Yellow for East/Air, Red for the South/Fire, Blue for the West/Water, Green for the North/Earth. Also, if you wish you may use a white candle to represent the Holy Spirit. Each member is to say a prayer, asking for the blessings of the Goddess and God, asking for the qualities they want for the dwelling. The leader of the group will light each candle. Say: I call upon you, powers of the Air, to witness this rite and to guard this place. Light the yellow candle. Say: I call upon the Powers of Fire, to witness this rite and to guard this place. Light the red candle Say: I call upon the Powers of Water, to witness this rite and to guard this place. Light the blue candle. Say: I call upon the powers of Earth to witness this rite and guard this place. Light the green candle. Say: I call upon the Powers of the Holy Spirit to witness this rite and to guard this place. Light the white candle. Leader says: Today we dedicate this place to the God and Goddess, for our protection, safety, peace and creativity. In this ritual we have banished anything that could be negative and have invited instead all prosperity and love. We have invited Earth, who protects all women, children and the dwelling. We have invited Fire who protects the dwelling, home and hearth. We have invited water, who gives abundance. We have invited Spirit, who is of the deities and the Earth and who protects all peoples. You may want to add blessings, poems, or chants to be done by members of the group. Purification Of Self Spell The purification of self is a way to remove the accumulation of all negative things that happened during the day and to prepare for the work to come. Before ritual work, you have to change your frame of mind from the everyday mundane world. Here are a couple of ways to do this. Incense: You may use incense in the common stick form or in what is called a smudge stick. This is a small bundle of incense. The incense is lit and is passed around the body, but not too close to the hair (fire hazard). As you pass the incense around your body, concentrate on the smoke passing through you. Envision all the negativity and the excess baggage of the day leaving you as the smoke rises around you. When you feel cleansed, put out the incense. You will need a container to put out the smudge stick. A terra cotta saucer filled with sand is ideal. Ritual Baths: A ritual bath is a great way to shed the day and concentrate on the ritual to come. You Will Need: white candles salt herb(s) for purification 1 candle snuffer Procedure: Run a bath of very warm water. As the water is running light the white candles. Use as many as you wish. Three is an appropriate number as it represents the three aspects of the Goddess. As you light a candle think or recite aloud. Say: I light this candle in truth and peace. Repeat with each candle. While the water is running, add a small amount of salt into the water. Add the herb or herbs of your choice. Step into the water and slowly sink down into the tub. Relax and feel the water covering your body. Let the day and all negativity be drawn into the water. Concentrate on letting go and moving to the positive. Wash slowly. Turn the bath into its own ritual. Say aloud: All negativity is flowing out of me into the water. I am pure for the work to come. Take as long as you need. When you feel you are clear and relaxed step out of the tub and drain the water. Watch the water flow down the drain. Envision all the negativity and the day behind you flowing down the drain with the water. Dry yourself slowly, deliberately. As you snuff out the candles. Say aloud: I leave this bath in truth and peace. You are now ready for the ritual to come.
