Purification Ritual for Scrying Tools
When you first make or purchase your tool, a ritual purification should be done:
(This is for most scrying tools, except the candle.)
Make a tea by simmering some Mugwort in water. Strain and cool.
Set up an altar and draw a circle of protection.
Carefully wash the scrying instrument in the mugwort water, saying:
“I wash you clean of all influences of your former life. Be now an instrument of the sight. Help me to see what is needed that I may aid myself as well as others. So mote it be.”
Dry the tool. Pass it through the candle flame and the incense, saying: “Charge this tool with energy and inspiration, that it may be a source of knowledge.”
Place the tool on the center of a black cloth which will be used for a covering. Place your hands over the tool and say: “Bless and consecrate this tool for the purposes of higher Magick. May it always be used for good and never for evil. May it serve me well, as long as my heart is pure and my aims are righteous. In the names of ___God_____ and ____Goddess____ I do consecrate you.”
Wrap the tool in the black cloth. Keep it covered until it is to be used.
Relax. When the time is right, take up the circle.
The tool is now a ritual tool and should be treated as such. Take care of it and do not let it open to the profane. Usually the tool is wrapped in the cloth or covered to keep the light and other influences out.
The proceeding ritual may be reinforced when you feel it is necessary. It may also be used when there has been a disturbing reading to clean up any residue that may remain.
