The Cleansing Meditation Over Herbs

Purification and Cleansing

God Of Earth and Giver of life

Strengthen me during my life-long strife.

Teach me Your ways of perfect love,

Peace, and wisdom true.

Spawn from my purest heart

May this petition  help me to better

Myself in word and deed,

To a higher plane I shall succeed.

Beautiful Light of Goodness of God

Psalms of David of old we both do share

I drink to You, My love for You,

by day and by night

In thought and in prayer

Will my soul learn

The meaning of this life again and after-life.  Saleh!

Pour out  a cup  for all present, including one for the

Gods, and enjoy.

Sit before the table and meditate on the blessings that

the Gods  have bestowed  upon your  life.   You may  use the

scrying candle  here to  focus upon for your meditation.  If

the Gods  so choose  They may  give you  a Message or Vision

through the blessings of the Sight.

Note:  Altered  To My Needs From Orginal Below

Rite of Tea                  |

Purpose: The purpose  of this working is to pay homage

to the Gods and to reflect on Their blessings

upon this your life.

Tools:

* Herb(s) for tea

* Container for herb(s)

* Cup(s) and Tea Pot

* Decanter of Pure Spring Water

* Brewing dish with candle

* Scrying Candle

Prepare By:    Placing a  small table  or  platform  in  the

center of  your working  space and  arranging

the Brewing  dish, herbs, cup(s), Tea Pot and

spoon on  the table.  Also place the cauldron

with scrying candle within for use during the

meditation. (Use  the diagram, which follows,

as a  guide  for  arranging  of  the  tools.)

Prior to casting the Circle, light candle and

fill the  Brewing dish with Spring Water from

a decanter.   Keep  the Brewing  Dish covered

during the  Casting, as  I  have  found  this

helps the water to heat faster and hotter.

|                 The Blessing of the Herbs                   |

+————————————————————-+

With the  tip of your Athame touching the Herbs, intone

this blessing:

Thou has grown by favor of the Sun,

The Moon, and of the dew.

I make this intercession, ye herb:

I beseech thee to be of benefit to me and my rite,

For thy virtues are unfailing.

Thou art the Dew of all the Gods,

The Eye of the Sun,

The Light of the Moon,

The Beauty and Glory of the Sky,

The Mystery of Terra.

I purify thee so that

Whatever is wrought by me with thee may,

In all its powers,

Have a good and speedy effect with good success.

Be purified by my prayer and be powerful!

So mote it be!

When water  is hot  enough, place  the herbs in the Tea

Pot and add water from the brewing dish, give it a couple of

stirs.

While the tea is steeping, intone this Prayer.

Earth Mother

Giver of life

Strengthen me during my life-long strife.

Teach me Your ways of perfect love,

Peace, and wisdom true.

Spawn from my purest heart

These words to You

May this prayer help me to better

Myself in word and deed,

To a higher plane I shall succeed.

Beautiful Light of Goodness Fair

Lore of old we both do share

A Witch’s brew, I drink to You

My love for You, by day, by night

In thought and in sight

Will my soul learn

The meaning of this life again.

Pour out  a cup  for all present, including one for the

Gods, and enjoy.

Sit before the table and meditate on the blessings that

the Gods  have bestowed  upon your  life.   You may  use the

scrying candle  here to  focus upon for your meditation.  If

the Gods  so choose  They may  give you  a Message or Vision

through the blessings of the Sight.

You may  relax now and finish off the pot.  (Note: this

rite is  not to  take the  place of  The Feast, but is to be

used as a time of blessing and communing with the Goddess)
