Holy Water

Items needed:

  • Fresh Water
  • Salt

“Help is in the Lord and Lady. Who made heaven and earth.”

Salt:

“Creature of salt, I cast out any negative energy from you by the Grand + Architect + of the + Universe. May you be a purified salt, a means of health for those who believe, a medicine for body and soul for all who make use of you. May all negativity of a foul fiend, malice and cunning, be driven afar from where you are sprinkled. So mote it be!

Lord and Lady, I humbly appeal to your mercy and goodness to graciously bless + this creature, salt. May any who use it find in it a remedy for body and mind. May everything it touches or sprinkles be freed from uncleanness and any influence of negative energy. As I will so mote it be!”

Water:

“Creature of water, I cast out any negativity from you in the name of the Grand + Architect + of the + Universe. May you be a purified water, empowered to drive afar negative energy, to root out and banish any malevolence. I ask this through the poser of the Lord and Lady. So mote it be!

Lord and Lady, pour forth your blessing + on this element now being prepared with various purifying rites. May this creature of yours, when used in your mysteries and endowed with your grace, serve to cast out negativity and to banish disease. May everything that this water sprinkles in the homes and gatherings of the faithful be delivered from all that is unclean and hurtful; let no breath of contagion hover there, no taint of corruption; let all the wiles of malevolence come to nothing. By the sprinkling of this water, may everything opposed to safety , and of the occupants of these be banished, so that in calling on your holy names they may know the well-being they desire, and be protected from every peril; as I will, so mote it be!”

Pour the salt into the water in the form of a cross.

“May this salt and water be mixed together; in the name of the Grand + Architect + of the + Universe. So mote it be!

Lord and Lady be with me. 

Grand Architect of the Universe, source of irresistible might and ruler of the pleroma, the ever-glorious conqueror; who restrains the force of adversaries; silencing the uproar of their rage, and valiantly subduing their wickedness, in awe and humility I beg you, to regard with favor this creature of salt and water, to let the light of your kindness shine upon it, and to hallow it with the dew of your mercy; so that wherever it is sprinkled and your holy name is invoked, every assault of an unclean spirit may be baffled, and all dread be cast out. To us who entreat your mercy, grant that your holiness be with me wherever I may be. As I beseech, so mote it be!”

New Moon Musings

Last week we discussed the moon in general, but this week we are focusing on the new moon. What is it, what energies does it bestow on us, how do we relate to it, and how can we use these energies in our practice. I also want to discuss the dark moon in tandem with the new moon. The reason that I want to discuss these together is that they are sometimes seen as the same time but they can really be seen as different times that you might find need to be honored separately in your own practice.

Northern Earth Grounds Us All

We come to the last of the four primary elemental energies, Earth. Earth is an element of receptivity. Like Water we go into it and it accepts what is brought within it. As all elements change us and our ideas in their own way, Earth makes the most noticeable change for me. Earth is about solidifying, connecting, grounding, strength, birth, and death. Earth is where we come from and where we return to. Earth is the element to which we ground ourselves and in doing so connects us to everything else.  Continue reading Northern Earth Grounds Us All
