General Cleansing Ritual for Magickal Objects

Pentagram

 

The following should be used to cleanse any object for Magickal use. Be it a ritual tool, amulet for protection or other need, any object to be charmed/enchanted for a specific reason. It can also be used on any jewelry or other gift your receive.

The purpose for this is to rid the object of anyone else energy who may have handled at some point in time. This way it will only have your personal and Universal energies attached to it, making the object totally yours.

This should also be done if anyone besides you picks up and/or touches the object after it has been cleansed and empowered or blessed. If you have charmed something to absorb negative energy before it can reach you; you should also cleanse the object weekly to ensure it is always at its peak of power to collect the negativity before it gets overloaded and leaks on to and/or into you and/or on to someone close to you.

WARNING: Some gems and semi-precious gems should not be left sitting in any type of water. For those things sparingly sprinkle them with the salt water (Earth/Water Element)and then immediately dry it with a soft clean cloth. The color of the cloth is in someway unimportant but many say it should be a white cloth. The reason for the white is it can bring positive energy on to the object you just cleansed.

What you need:

12 inch by 12 inch Clean White Cloth

Shallow bowl or cup of plain Water

About 1 teaspoon of Regular (not iodized or sea) Salt Or Dirt from your yard or a special place in the woods you go to.

White Candle

Hand Fan or Feather

Pentacle

Object to be cleansed.

How to cleanse any object:

Repeat each incantation three times before moving on to the next Element.

Add the salt or dirt to the water. place the object in the salt/dirt water with your power hand (the hand you write with). Then say” Earth and Water I ask you to remove all energy but my own from this object”. Take it out of the salt water with your power hand. WARNING: Some gems and semi-precious gems should not be left sitting in any type of water. For those things sparingly sprinkle them with the salt water (Earth/Water Element) on all sides. Also see warning above for complete directions for cleansing delicate things.

Place the object on the white cloth. With your power hand pick up the feather or hand fan. Wave it over the stone saying “Air I ask you to remove all energy but my own from this object”. Turn the object over and repeat until all outside surface has been done.

Light the white candle then pick the object up in your power hand. Move the object over the top of the flame (being careful not to burn yourself) saying “Fire i ask you to remove all outside energies from this stone”. Turn the object over and repeat until all outside surface has been done.. Place the object back on white cloth and blow out the candle.

Pick up the object and place the Pentacle on the white cloth. Lay the object on the white cloth and say, “Spirit I ask you to remove all energy from this object except mine.” There is no need to turn the object over on the Pentacle as it is all encompassing when in use.

After the cleansing is done close the ritual be saying one time :So Mote It Be

Now your object is ready to be Magickaly empowered and/or blessed for whatever it use to you is.
