Banishing ritual

This Banishing Ritual is very intense and powerful like many of my other Rituals such as the Full and Dark Moon Rituals. This ritual should be done as close to the Dark Moon as possible. This ritual is for someone(s) who has done you harm by gossip, lies, deceit, etc. Because you are calling on the Goddess Hecate and Her powers to aid you, please make sure that you are completely innocent of the situation.

This ritual is for someone(s) who has done you harm by gossip, lies, deceit, etc. Because you are calling on the Goddess Hecate and Her powers to aid you, please make sure that you are completely innocent of the situation.

If you do not know who the person is, or are not positively sure, do not mention any names. Leave that to the Dark Goddess, as She knows.

This ritual deals with the use of parchment paper (or regular paper, if you do not have it). Gather all your material that you need for this ceremony. If using a lit charcoal in the cauldron of Hecate, make sure that the charcoal is hot enough to burn your parchment paper. If you are going to light the parchment paper from the Goddess candle to put in the cauldron, then there is no need to worry about any charcoal after you cleanse the temple room. You will need piece of parchment paper, patchouli oil or clove oil to sprinkle on the parchment paper. (If you do not have any of these oils, that is fine. But I would suggest perhaps ordering some of these oils from a Witchcraft supply store for future use. ) You will also need Dragon?s Blood ink or your magickal pen. Before ritual, on a small piece of parchment paper, write down what has been done to you either with Dragon?s Blood ink and a feather or your magickal pen which you have only used for magickal workings. Then put a few dabs of Patchouli or Clove oil on the parchment paper. Fold the parchment paper in half and put a banishing pentagram on top and bottom of the folded paper.

RITUAL

After meditating and getting yourself focused and centered, cast and cleanse your circle in the manner you are accustomed to, or you can use the Circle Casting chant either from the Full or Dark Moon Ritual which I prepared. In casting a Circle and calling in the Watchtowers, I go deosil no matter the time of the Moon. When I take the ritual down, I go widdershins in dismissing the Watchtowers and calling back the Circle. To me, when when “closing” a bottle, you go deosil. So, in casting a circle you are closing and making it air tight; when opening a bottle, you go widdershins. So in opening the circle, you are once again letting anything back in. Also, since this is a Dark Moon ritual, and you are working with the Crone and Her energies, there is no need to call in any God. Moon rituals are sacred and for the Goddess only. You call in the Goddess and God at Sabbats, as the Sabbats are the interaction between the Goddess and her Consort…between Earth and Sun. And the Moon……is for the Goddess only!

Calling in the Dragon Watchtowers. (Dragons are great protectors and are also the ones who pulls Hecate?s Chariot.)

Move to the East – raise your wand and say

Hail, Great Dragon of the East

Whose yellow eyes see all in the Element of Air

I do summon, stir, and call thee up to attend this rite

and call upon your forces to protect and defend me this night!

(Light the candle and draw an evoking pentagram into the air)

Move to the South – raise your wand and say

Hail Great Dragon of the South

Whose red eyes see all in the Element of Fire!

I do summon, stir, and call thee up to attend this rite

and call upon your forces to protect and defend me this night.

(Light the candle and draw an evoking pentagram into the air)

Move to the West – raise your arm and say

Hail, Great Dragon of the West,

Whose blue eyes see all in the Element of Water

I do summon, stir and call thee up to attend this rite

and call upon your forces to protect and defend me this night

(Light the candle and draw an evoking pentagram into the air)

Move to the North – raise your arm and say

Hail, Great Dragon of the North

Whose green eyes see all in the Element of Earth

I do summon, stir, and call thee up to attend this rite

and call upon your forces to protect and defend me this night.

(Light the candle and draw an evoking pentagram into the air)

Go back to the East and make an envoking pentagram and say:

The Circle is sealed and I am

completely cut off from the outside world

in order to perform my magickal workings in

sending back all the evil that has been sent against me

Lighting of the Triple Goddess Candles – (optional)

Three Candles do I light

In Honor of Thee, O Goddess this Dark Moon Night

White for the Maiden pure as snow

Red for the Mother full within

Black for the Crone, old and wise.

(Light each candle as you address each Gddess)

Evoke the Goddess – raise your hands up high

Oh Great Goddess of Darkness, the Sorceress

who will not be ruled, the Weaver of time,

The teacher of Mysteries.

O Hecate, you who slit the throats of the cruel and drink

the blood of the heartless, yet are the shining sword

that protects us from harm.

You are the healer of wounds;

the Warrior who rights all wrongs.

You make the weak strong and the arrogant humble,

and you are Justice tempered with Mercy.

I call upon you Dark Goddess Hecate to attend this rite

and to send back all the evil that has been sent against me.

(Light the Dark Goddess candle)

Prayer to the Dark Goddess Hecate of your plight

Dark Mother, Queen of the Night, there are

those who stand against me.

Let their efforts fail. Let them go down into darkness

Let them stand in your Courts

May their efforts always be lost in the darkness

with no light to guide them.

I am your child Dark Mother, protect me!

Dark Mother, help me to reach my goals, live my life to the fullest,

and walk the path of the Goddess.

Sweep away all barriers built by those who want me to fail.

(Now…..your intent – holding your parchment paper over your cauldron say with total conviction and emotion from deep within your heart. Poor the anger into your words for the injustice done to you. Do not just say the words, but feel the words)

Crush the evil sent against me!

Sweep its evil remains back int the bodies and brains of those who sent it!

The evil is dead…the attackers taste their just rewards!

The mouths are full of ashes, their thoughts of nightmares

their lives of unfulfillment!

Hecate, Dark One, hear my plea,

Bring justice now, I ask of Thee!

Right the wrongs that have been done,

Avenge me now, oh Mighty One

Light your parchment paper by the Goddess candle and then put it in the Cauldron of Hecate and release you requests to Her and watch it burn. As you are watching it burn, envision the darkness/negativity being lifted from you and returning to the sender. If you know how it is, fine. If you do not, then just see the shadow of the person receiving what they had sent out. After the parchment paper is done burning say:

It is finished! (In saying this, you are now allowing the Dark Goddess Hecate to handle the situation. It is in Her hands now!)

Then say:

Oh Great Goddess, wrap me in your dark cloak and

protect me from Dark Moon to Dark Moon.

May your Dragons guard me from Dark Moon to Dark Moon.

If you have prepared for Cakes and Wine/Juice (which is in your chalice), bless them both by saying:

I bless thee of Creature of Wine and Cakes

knowing that as I drink and eat of thee

I partake in the power of the mysteries of You,

Great Goddess Hecate, the three and the one.

Libation: (Take the chalice of wine/juice in both hands and hold it up and say:)

In Honor of Thee O Great Goddess Hecate,

Do I pour this Libation and drinketh this Toast.

All life is your Own

All fruits of the Earth, your power, your wisdom

your liberation

I thank you for your blessings, strength and protection.

(Remember eating of the cakes and wine help to ground you. So it is important to eat and drink.)

If you wish to do any sort of divination and/or meditation, now is the time.

Thanking the Triple Goddess –

Wise Crone, who face is hidden from the starlit night,

Thank you for attending and witnessing my rite

on this most my sacred night.

(Put out the Crone Candle)

Go back to the East and once again draw an banishing pentagram to break the seal.

Calling back the Circle – (I go widdershins to open circle, since I went deosil to create my sacred circle)

Power cast and then forgotten is power wasted

Wherefore do I call ye back O circle of Power

into my holy staff (or whatever you use)

By the holy flame, this circle disappears and becomes no more

Everything is as it was since the beginning of time.

Circle is now opened once again.

Third Eye Ritual

Begin by brewing a strong magickal tea made from yarrow or mugwort (herbs that stimulate the psychic senses) and then light thirteen purple coloured votive candles to help attract psychic influences. Drink the tea and then gaze fixedly into a magick mirror, black bowl full of water, crystal ball, or crystal pyramid as you chant thrice the following incantation:

“I invoke thee, oh Asarial,

Archangel of Neptune

And ruler of clairvoyant powers.

I ask thee now to open my third eye

And show me the hidden light.

Let me see the future.

Let me see the past.

Let me perceive the divine

Kingdoms of the unknown.

Let me understand the wisdom

Of the mighty universe.

So mote it be!”

After chanting, relax, breathe slowly and concentrate on opening your Third Eye. Do not permit any negative thought to contaminate your mind. The Third Eye, an invisible chakra located in the middle of the forehead above the space between the eyebrows, is the human body?s highest source of power, supernormal sight and clairvoyant vision.

Empowerment Ritual

This ritual will increase your magical powers and energy. I altered this ritual almost entirely, choosing to use personal symbols as opposed to runes. (That is, symbols personal to the person practicing the ritual.) I consider this one of the most important rituals to perform, as it will truly increase your powers tenfold.

“The purpose of this ritual is to tap into your own personal lifeforce and amplify it into a personal statement of self confidence and strength. Afterwards, when you feel yourself dragging in one area or another, concentrate on the appropriate symbol in the appropriate color for a bit, and you will find yourself tapping back into the energies you established in the ritual.”

You will need:

A set of crayons including red, orange, yellow, green, sky blue, dark blue, violet, black, grey, white, silver, and gold.

A medium to work on–cloth or paper on which all the colors will show up.

A red candle

Fiery scented incense, such as sage or cedar.

First, establish your working circle, after you’ve gathered all your materials together. Make sure you have a comfortable place to sit and draw. You’ll be here a while.

Face the east and say:

“Spirits of the East, powers of Air, I ask that you be present at this spell-working. Help me find inspiration and visualize the symbols clearly that I may partake of their essence.”

Face the south and say:

“Spirits of the South, powers of Fire, I ask that you be present at this spell-working. Help me find the spirit within to empower the symbols and tune into their color energy.”

Face the west and say:

“Spirits of the West, powers of Water, I ask that you be present at this spell-working. Help me to seek the mystery within, that the symbolsI draw here may work upon my emotions for my Highest Good.”

Face the north and say:

“Spirits of the North, powers of Earth, I ask that you be present at this spell-working. Help me to manifest the symbols in the third-dimensional world so that their energies may become a part of my physical existence.”

Face the sky and say:

“Father Sky, I ask that you watch over me in this spell-working. Lend me your wisdom so that I may bring safely link my inner vision with the outer Self.”

Place your hands on the earth and say:

“Mother Earth, I ask that you watch over me in this spell-working. Let me ground myself deeply in you and draw on your strength and energy to sustain me in my work.”

Face your altar in the center of the circle and say:

“Sacred center, Spirit of all that is, of whom we are all only aspects, unite this sphere into a protected space for the spell-working I plan to do here.”

Using the red crayon, visualize the color as life essence. Draw a human body, using a star-like shape.

Draw the first symbol that comes to your mind when you think of strength and power. (Draw it in red below the human body shape.)

Now take the orange crayon. This color represents vitality, potency, courage- draw the first symbol of these qualities that comes to mind slightly above and to the left of the last symbol.

With the yellow crayon in hand, concentrate on intellect, and your request for knowledge. Draw a symbol of this directly to the left of the human body shape.

Using the green crayon, visualize expansion, abundance, prosperity, growth, love. When you have felt its energy, draw a symbol of above and to the left of the human body.

Take up the sky blue crayon, and feel it’s energy of expression, communication, spiritual gain, joy, and self-achievement. Draw a symbol of those directly above the central symbol (body).

Using a dark blue crayon, draw a symbol to the lower-right of the last symbol. This one should represent synthesis and inner wisdom. It should align with the green shape.

In violet, which represents spirituality and guidance, draw a symbol of those traits directly to the right of the red central sign.

White is used to link the life-force. Draw a symbol that represents a cycle or strong bond below and to the right of the central symbol.

This main pattern is complete. It should resemble a circle of colors and symbols surrounding the body.

Now, trace from the central body, directly to the left. Here, you should come upon the yellow symbol. To the left of that symbol, you will draw another sign, in silver. Hold the silver crayon and feel it’s energy, imagine the journey you are embarking on, and draw a symbol of it.

Take the gray crayon and visualize flexibility, endurance, persistence and resolve needed to accomplish the changes you desire. When you feel it’s energy, draw a symbol of those strengths at the very top/center. (above the human body, and above the light blue sign.)

The gold crayon represents activity. Draw your symbol of activation to the far-right (lined up horizontally with the silver symbol).

Using black, feel and see the changes you want occuring, the power of this ritual going to work. Draw a symbol of this directly beneath the red symbol under the body. (The bottom of the page, centered.)

Give blessings to all invoked gods, goddesses, and spirits, using a chant to each quarter like this:

“Spirits of the east, powers of air, thank you for your presence and aid in this work. Depart in peace, my thanks and blessings.”

Open the circle, release the energy, and say:

“To all spirits visible and invisible that have been present in this ritual, depart in peace, my thanks and blessings.”

Hang the resulting picture up somewhere where you can see it often. When you need any of the specific traits energized in each symbol, simply think of that particular color and symbol as depicted in your masterpiece!

Air Fresheners

Natural air fresheners help to elevate our mood and can be used in place of incense in ritual. Use spring or distilled water as your liquid base. For all air fresheners, fill a four-ounce spray bottle, then add essential oils. Tighten cap. Shake well. The longer the mixture ages, the stronger the scent becomes. For ritual use, age your freshener for at least seven days before using, shaking bottle every day. Store in a dark place.
