General Ingredient Blessing
By Silver Ravenwolf

Put your hands over the ingredients of any dish. Envision pure, white light entering the ingredients. Circle your palms five times over the ingredients, and say:

“Form the east, the air brings wisdom.
From the south, the fire brings creation.
From the west, the water brings love
From the north, the earth brings stability.
From the center, Spirit brings blessings.”

Tap the kitchen counter three times, and say:

“The love is sealed.”

House Cleansing
By David Piper

To be performed during at the New Moon, but may be performed at any time in need.

You will need a new white Candle (any size with holder), small bowls for Water and Salt, and a large bowl of water as well, and the censer and an appropriate incense. (Choose one that brings to your mind qualities you wish to have in your home.)

Banishing Ritual Meditate for a few moments on the task ahead; then make a brief invocation to the Goddess and the God, asking for Their Aid and Power in the Work you will do.

Light the white candle in its holder, and charcoal in the censer (or an incense stick may be used instead).

Consecrate Water and Salt in the usual way.

Consecrate the water in the bowl in the same manner, but do not add Salt; place this bowl in the center of the room.

Take the consecrated Water, elevate it to North, and say,

"In the name of (Goddess) and (God)
I banish with Water and Earth."

Sprinkle the Water lightly widdershins around the perimeter of the room.

Bless the incense, then elevate the censer (or incense stick) to North, and say,

"In the name of (Goddess) and (God)
I banish with Fire and Air."

Cense the perimeter of the room widdershins.

Take the Candle and cast a Banishing Earth Pentagram at North. (Draw the Pentagram with the censer or incense stick, starting from the bottom left point up to the top point, and so forth.) As you cast the Pentagram say,

"With this Sign I banish ye, foul shades of the (Quarter)!
Let this home be freed of your baneful influences!"

Then go widdershins around the perimeter of the room, casting a Banishing Pentagram at each Quarter beginning at the West and ending back at North, repeating the above at each Quarter. (Do not repeat it again at North.)

Now turn and face the center of the room, where the bowl of water sits.

With your hands, draw any negative energy or vibrations remaining, and cast them into the water in the bowl by flicking or snapping your fingers at it. Repeat this action until you are satisfied the room is cleansed. Do not touch the water in the bowl, as it is being filled with the negative forces you are eliminating.

Move the consecrated Water, the Salt, the Incense, the Candle, and the bowl of water (being careful not to spill it) into each room in your home and repeat this ritual.

After banishing every room in the home (including bathroom, closets, pantry, etc.) you have finished. Empty the large bowl of water into running water (a sink or toilet will do). Wash the bowl thoroughly with cold water, scrubbing with some of the consecrated Salt.

Sealing Ritual Take all the Elemental substances used in the Banishing Ritual (Salt, consecrated Water, wax drippings from the Candle, and ashes from the Incense) and mix them into a paste.

Using your forefinger, use the mixture to draw an Invoking Fire Pentagram at each opening leading outside the home (the doors and the windows - and even the water pipes, if you should feel the need) while concentrating on the Intention of protecting your home from outside influences. (Draw the Pentagram from the top point to the bottom right, and so forth. Form the Star so that it is point up, or point out, as appropriate.) You may make two Stars at each opening if you wish - one on the sill or threshold, and the other on the door or window itself.

Remember that Intent is the key to success in this, as in all magickal operations; going through the motions without Will brings no results.

Irish Work Blessing

May the light of your soul guide you,
May the light of your soul bless the work you do with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light and renewal to those who work with you and to those who see and receive your work.
May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration, and excitement.
May you be presenting what you do,
May you never become lost in the bland absences.
May the day never burden.
May the dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities, and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.

New House Purification Spell

To purify your home, open the windows during a waning moon, or during the third or tenth hour after sunset. Light two red candles and set them on the kitchen counter. Light a charcoal block and place it in a cauldron, between the candles. Grind equal parts bay leaf, yarrow flowers, rosemary leaves, St. John’s Wort leaves, basil leaves, juniper berries, and mullien. Add the herbs to the glowing charcoal. Peel garlic cloves and place one in the center of each room. Carry the cauldron from room to room, censing widdershins, then return it to the countertop between the candles. Vacate the house for 13 minutes. Return and gather the garlic cloves without touching them, fasten a plastic bag, and put them in your outdoor trash bin. Close the windows, let the candels burn for one more hour, then snuff – don’t blow – them out. Scatter the cooled incense remains out of doors. This spell is best done before you begin moving your things in.

New Pot Blessing
By Raylynn

To bless a new pot and promote a healthy growth of plants therein, light your favorite incense. Draw a pentagram on the inside and outside bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon, saying: “Blessings of earth for abundance.” Pass the pot through the incense, saying: “Blessings of air for fragrance.” Turn the burner of your stove on low and place the pot on the flame, carefully, saying: “Blessings of fire for purity in preparation.” Stir in a little water, saying: “Blessings of water for love.” Prepare a favorite food and share it.

Crystal Cleansing
A Prayer to Artemis

Artemis, Guardian of creatures wild,
Hear this request from your loving child,
I ask you now to come and bless
This animal with much happiness.
She’s (He’s) more than just a pet to me –
A beloved member of my family.
Grant her (him) a long and healthy life,
Free from hunger, pain, and strife.
Fill her (his) days with love and light,
Gentle hugs and blessings bright,
May I treat her with respect and care,
And be thankful for the bond we share.
Protect her (him) danger and those who harm,
Keep her (him) comfortable, safe, and warm.
And grant that we might always be
Content with each other’s company.
Artemis, Maiden, both fierce and free,
Grant these things I ask of thee!
