Self Purification

Self Purification Cover
Many Wiccans think that the only time they should purify themselves is on the New Moon. And the New Moon is certainly a good time for purification, but it is certainly not the only time that such a thing can or should be done. Purification of the body allows us to rid ourselves of the black psycho-crap that clutters our psyches and thus hinders us from making contact with the Goddess, and can even make us physically ill. For those of you that are especially "sensitive", if your psyche gets covered in smut it can really do you
some damage. So here is a simple Purification ritual that you can do weekly to help attune yourself better.

Start with a ritual bath. This need not be a full bath with soap and scrubbing but you should sit in hot water with only candle light. Perhaps add some soothing oil to the water. I prefer sandalwood. Also add some salt to the water. While your sitting in the water, let yourself relax. Don't think about what you are about to do, don't think about all the bills you have to pay. Just relax. After your bath, you can start your ritual.

Cast the circle. Arrange your altar. Invoke the God and the Goddess.

Lie down on your back. If you cannot do this because your circle is too small, then sit with your legs out before you. Try not to have anything crossed if you can avoid it.

Now feel all of your energy draining out of you, into the floor or into the Earth. Feel yourself losing control of your body, letting it go numb. Let your body become a distant object. Release yourself from it. Don't let your body be a part of you. Sink out of your body as best you can. After a few moments, feel the energy from the Earth, all its vibrations entering your body. Feel your body tingling, burning, itching, tickling. Feel it becoming alive again, knowing that it is being charged with good energy from the Earth.

Once you feel that you have been recharged, sit up and light a silver candle. If you don't have one, you can use a white one. Say, "I light this candle as an object of my purified soul, as a dedication to my Goddess. Let this candle burn and charge me with energy."

Pass the incense over your body. Feel the smoke all over you as it washes you clean. You may wish to thank the Element of Air as you do this. Then, sprinkle on your head some water from the cauldron, thinking of the Element of Water. Sprinkle salt on your body next, thinking of Earth, and lastly pass a candle over your body. You can just press the candle over your body if running your hand through the flame frightens you.

Once this is done, thank the Goddess and the God, and release your circle.

Your rite is done.

What Is Worship

What Is Worship Cover What does it mean to worship? Many people are quick to start the answer to that, only to trail off at the end of their first sentence as they realize that it's not easily defined.

Is worship getting down on your knees in a church pew, locking your fingers Together and saying a few short words? Is it sitting cross-legged in the middle of a Circle, surrounded by candles, and saying those same with words, with different names? Is it lighting a candle on Candlemas, scattering flowers on Beltaine, singing songs underneath a silver full moon?

I believe that worship is anything done with love in mind. Every breath that you take in peace, every athame you raise to cast Circles with spirit, every cent you donate to a charity, every paintbrush taken to a blank canvas, every note that comes from a guitar, every hug and every shoulder to cry on.

To worship means to adore, venerate, honor. What could be better worship then living our lives as companions and friends to the world, altruistic and heartfelt with our care?

To worship means to devote time and attention to Something we love. Worship is not just the conventional ways we have grown to accept. It's not as mundane and Tangible as that, although it can be. We serve whatever Deity might exist just as much by writing a poem wreathed with our emotions and feelings then we do whispering a prayer into the silence.

If there is a God or a Goddess, a Supreme Being and Higher Power, then we are their creations, their children, and so their divinity runs through us as much as our biological parent's genes run through us. We are little pieces of God. We have the inherent power, wisdom and beauty of this Deity flowing through our veins, and so whenever we are kind to one another, we are helping and honoring the Deity. Whenever we dream, think, grow, smile, adventure, laugh, we are adding something to the lifepool of divinity. Whenever we create something beautiful, be it a picture, an ice-cream sundae, or a warm feeling, we are showing our celestial. We are contributing to the well-being and furtherment of the Earth...and so we are worshipping.

To worship is to live, truly live.

Grimoirum Verum Or The True Grimoire The Most Approved Keys Of Solomon

Grimoirum Verum Or The True Grimoire The Most Approved Keys Of Solomon Cover

Book: Grimoirum Verum Or The True Grimoire The Most Approved Keys Of Solomon by Solomonic Grimoires

The 'Grimorium Verum' (Latin for True Grimoire or The Grimoire of Truth), is a book on magic, or grimoire, allegedly written by "Alibeck the Egyptian" in Memphis in 1517. Scholars agree that such claim is untrue, as Memphis had long been in ruin by 1517, and that book really stems from 18th century, with the first editions appearing in French and Italian. Large portions of this short book were translated by Arthur Waite and published in The Book of Ceremonial Magic in 1911, where Waite wrote:

"The date specified in the title of the Grimorium Verum is undeniably fraudulent; the work belongs to the middle of the eighteenth century, and Memphis is Rome."

One version of the Grimoire was included as "The Clavicles of King Solomon: Book 3" in one of the French manuscripts S. L. MacGregor Mathers incorporated in his version of The Key of Solomon, but it was omitted from the 'Key' with the following explanation:

"At the end there are some short extracts from the Grimorium Verum with the Seals of evil spirits, which, as they do not belong to the Key of Solomon proper, I have not given. For the evident classification of the 'Key' is in two books and no more."

Grimorium Verum is based to some extent upon the "Key of Solomon the King" and is quite honest in its statement that it proposes to invoke devils. It refers to the four elements, so these would appear to be elementary spirits. A part of the account it gives regarding the hierarchy of spirits is taken from the Lemegeton, or Lesser Key of Solomon.

The work is divided into three portions. The first describes the characters and seals of the demons, with the forms of their evocation and dismissal; the second gives a description of the Supernatural secrets that can be learned by the power of the demons; and the third is the key of the work and its proper application. But these divisions only outline what the Grimorium Verum purports to place before the reader, since the whole work is a mass of confusion. The plates that supply the characters do not apply to the text. The book really consists of two parts—the Grimorium Verum itself, and a second portion consisting of magic secrets. The first supplies directions for the preparation of the magician based on those of the Clavicle of Solomon. Instructions are given for the manufacture of magic instruments and for the composition of a parchment on which the characters and seals are to be inscribed, as well as the processes of evocation and dismissal.

The second part contains the "admirable secrets" of the pretended Albertus Magnus, the "Petit Albert," and so forth. The work is only partially diabolical in character, and some of its processes might be classified as white magic.

Consecration Of Tools

Consecration Of Tools Cover
Light the candles. Set the incense smoking. Cast the Circle of Stones. Place the tool on the pentacle, or a plate of salt. Touch it with the point of your athame (or your projective hand) and say:

I consecrate you, O Athame of steel(or wand of wood, etc.) to cleanse and purify you to serve me within the Circle of Stones. In the names of the Mother Goddess and Father God, you are consecrated.

Send projective energy into the tool, cleansing it of all negativity and past associations. Now pick it up and sprinkle with salt, pass it through the incense smoke, through the candle flame and sprinkle with water, calling upon the Spirits of the Stones to consecrate it.

Then hold the tool to the sky, saying:

I charge you by the Old Ones: By the omnipotent Goddess and God: By the virtues of the Sun, Moon and Stars: By the powers of the Earth, Air, Fire and Water, that I shall obtain all that I desire through you. Charge this by your power, Old Ones!

The tool should immediately be put to use to strengthen and bind the consecration. For example, the athame can be used to consecrate another tool; a wand to invoke the Goddess; the pentacle to act as a resting place for a tool during its consecration.

Consecrating Tools Method 1

Consecrating Tools Method 1 Cover
You may wish to concentrate you tools, although it is not necessary, as the Kitchen Witch knows.

Supplies in addition to circle casting supplies:

Any tool you wish to consecrate
White candle for consecration flame

Cast your circle:

To consecrate the tools, the elementals may be used.

Pick up the wand, saying:

"I have chosen this wand to assist me in my work."

Visualize the wand being cleared of any negativity, especially if it has had a previous owner. Continue till the wand feels clear to you. Now visualize positive energy flowing from you, down you arm and into the wand. Visualize a strong white light flowing through your body to the tool. Feel it absorb the positive energies. Touch it to the pentacle, saying:

" In the names of the Goddess and God (use any names you wish), I bless and make sacred this wand, tool of my craft. I charge this wand by the element of Earth."

Point the wand towards the North, saying:

"May the powers of the Earth cleanse and fill the wand I have chosen."

Pass the wand through the smoke of the incense, saying:

"In the names of the Goddess and God (use any names you wish), I bless and make sacred this wand, tool of my craft. I charge this wand by the element Air."

Point the wand to the East, saying:

"May the powers of the Air cleanse and fill the wand I have chosen."

Pass the wand through the candle flame, saying:

"In the names of the Goddess and God (using any names), I bless and make sacred this wand, tool of my craft. I charge this wand by the element Fire."

Point the wand to the South, saying:

"May the powers of Fire cleanse and fill the wand I have chosen."

Sprinkle the wand with water, saying:

"In the names of the Goddess and God (using any names), I bless and make sacred this wand, tool of my craft. I charge this wand by the element Water."

Point the wand to the West, saying:

"May the powers of water cleanse and fill the wand I have chosen."

"This tool is now ready, being consecrated and charged to assist me in my work. So mote it be."

Perform other workings if you wish, then close the circle.

To consecrate, cleanse and charge other tools, substitute the word "wand" with the name of the chosen tool.

The Witches Creed

The Witches Creed Cover Hear now the words of the witches,
The secrets we hid in the night,
When dark was our destiny’s pathway,
That now we bring forth into light.

Mysterious water and fire,
The earth and the wide-ranging air,
By hidden Quintessence we know them,
And will and keep silent and dare.

The birth and rebirth of all nature,
The passing of winter and spring,
We share with the life universal,
Rejoice in the magical ring.

Four times in the year the Great Sabbat
Returns, and witches are seen
At Lammas, and Candlemas dancing,
On May Eve and old Hallowe’en.

When day-time and night-time are equal,
When the sun is at greatest and least,
The four Lesser Sabbats are summoned,
Again witches gather in feast.

Thirteen silver moons in a year are,
Thirteen is the coven's array.
Thirteen times as Esbat make merry,
For each golden year and a day.

The power was passed down the ages,
Each time between woman and man,
Each century unto the other,
Ere time and the ages began.

When drawn is the magical circle,
By sword or athame or power,
Its compass between the two worlds lie,
In Land of the Shades for that hour.

This world has no right then to know it,
And world beyond will tell naught,
The oldest of Gods are invoked there,
The Great Work of magic is wrought.

For two are the mystical pillars,
That stand to at the gate of the shrine,
And two are the powers of nature,
The forms and the forces divine.

The dark and the light in succession,
The opposites each unto each,
Shown forth as a God and a Goddess,
Of this did our ancestors teach.

By night he’s the wild wind’s rider,
The Horn’d One, the Lord of the shades,
By day he’s the King of the Woodlands,
The dweller in green forest glades.

She is youthful or old as she pleases,

She sails the torn clouds in her barque,

The bright silver lady of midnight,

The crone who weaves spells in the dark.

The master and mistress of magic,
They dwell in the deeps of the mind,
Immortal and ever-renewing,
With power to free or to bind.

So drink the good wine to the Old Gods,
And dance and make love in their praise,
Til Elphame's fair land shall receive us,
In peace at the end of our days.

An Do What You Will be the challenge,
So be it in Love that harms none,
For this is the only commandment,
By Magick of old, be it done.

Eight words the Witches’ Creed fulfill:

If it harms none, do what you will.
