This is the third exercise I am posting from my online book club. For reference of what book we are using please click here.
This exercise deals with The Conjure Woman. The Magic Woman. The Root Worker Woman. As a newly practicing witch, this exercise excites me. I’ve had a few encounters with magic recently, and I love rituals. The exercise calls to us to write down a recipe, or a “Witch’s Brew.”
I’ve actually taken the concept, and written a bit of a poem detailing my ritual, and how I’ve been practicing. I love magic. I love learning about it. I love feeling it. I love seeing it at work in the world. In this day and age, we could all use a bit more magic.
the sun is setting
preparations are underway:
Cleanse your body, wash your hair…
You are meeting Divinity tonight.
Set your altar.
Items to charge in the moonlight.
A pot for burning.
Clothe yourself all in white, in whatever makes you feel beautiful.
Adorn your head in rainbows.
Now, it is time.
Light the smudge stick: White sage, Cedar, Palo Santo.
Inhale the purifying smoke. Speak to the Divine within.
Prepare your spirit.
Call the quarters, with peace and love in your heart.
Send your petitions. Speak what you desire to manifest.
Burn what no longer serves you.
Release. Cry. Smile.
Bathe and bask in the New or Full Moonlight.
Sit a while in silence.
The Divine, she is Within you.
She is All around you.
She is YOU.
Powerful. Peaceful. Feminine. Magical.
Dismiss the quarters:
In Peace With Us Abide.
Have a drink.
