What you will need:
- 1 orange candle
- Rose oil
- Dragon’s Blood Incense
- Ritual tools
- Sea salt
- Some of your favorite food and drink (for the Cakes and Wine Ceremony)
- Lavender flowers (for the ritual bath)
- Clean towel
- Clean robe
Take a ritual bath:
On a full or waxing moon, bathe to wash all the physical dirt from your body. Then draw a new bath and put three tablespoons of sea salt into the water. Soak in the water and think of all the negative energy being absorbed by the salt water. Breathe in and out deeply. Relax… Take your time.
Use a clean towel to dry off. Put on a clean robe.
Next, go to your room and clear a space and place your small simple table (this will be your altar) in the center. Place the candle in the middle of the altar. Additionally, set up your small water bowl, sea salt bowl, and food and drink on either the side of the candle.
Cast circle in your usual manner.
Place the tip of your athame in the bowl of water and say:
I cleanse and consecrate thee, Water, that you are pure and clean.
Put the tip of your athame into the bowl of salt and say:
I cleanse and consecrate thee, Salt, that you are pure and clean.
Put three pinches of the blessed sea salt into the bowl of water and stir clockwise (using your index finger).
Asperge the candle with the holy water and say:
I cleanse and consecrate thee, Candle, that you are pure and clean.
Waft the candle with the incense smoke and say:
I charge you with air and fire.
Time to dress your candle: This means that you take the rose oil and rub it onto the candle from wick to the base of the candle. Carve the word “happiness” on the candle and place in the candle holder.
Put the candle into the candle holder, light it, and then say:
I now open my arms out wide
Perking up my internal pride
The blues that surround me go away
So peace and happiness are here to stay!
Happiness, peace, and love within
Reside deeply and ever herein
As I so will, So Mote It Be!
Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.
