New Age Ritual: How to Prepare

New Age Ritual: How to Prepare

How to Prepare Yourself for Magick Rituals

Colors, Altars, Ancient Ritual Magick, Ritual Bath, Calling in the Directions, Spirits and Elementals

These are steps on how to Call in the Directions- Use Healing Magick, Crystals, Gemstones and Color to prepare yourself for Ancient Rituals, your own modern magick and the Power of your Journey-Quest.

The most powerful Magick is your Heart and your most important Magickal Tool is the Honor of your Intention.

A Ritual is any set of steps we use to alert the inner self that a change is about to take place.

Use Healing Magick and Color for Ancient Rituals.

Firstly, you must have a need. Decide what it is you need... What do you desire to change?

1. Determine Your Color and do the Chapter work- see Healing with Color and the Color Meaning Chapters

2. Gather the Materials you will Need:

  • Robe or Fabrics in Your Color
  • Your Spell Kit or Tools
  • Music to Enhance your visualization
  • Bath Salts- Oils/Mysts- Sample Bath follows below
  • Crystals/Jewelry
  • Soft Lights (please be careful with candles!)
  • Anything else you would personally like to add
  • Your Journey-wise Workbook and a Journal

Preparing thoughtfully prevents disruption later during your Ritual.
(Note-Know the Direction Points N-S-E-W of your space Prepare Your Space).

Although not a daily requirement, Ritual will help you make more potent changes; SPELL-WORK.

3. Assemble your tools and calm yourself.
Recall your color and what it means and also what it is specifically that you are about to try to accomplish then, light your lamp, (flash light, candle, lamp).

4. Call in all kind and Helpful Energies to assist you and align with you.

Stand facing the West.- The West holds the Cauldron of Life, the Ancestors and the Grail

Lift the lantern and call out...

I am on my Journey Quest, oh, Wondrous Waters of the West-I call to the Ancestors to help me find my path.

Lower lantern to path

I acknowledge you My Ancestral Family..."

"…and the connections which link me to you. May you bring to me understanding of myself and my powers on this part of my Journey."

"Energies Sweet, Energies Strong
Justice and Truth sing your Song
Power of the Waters, Power of the Waves
I honor the West and what Life's Mystery Gave.

Holding up your lantern, move slowly to face the North...

I am Journeying Forth oh Nurturing North, I call to the Nature Energies to help me find my path.

Lower lantern

" I acknowledge the clockwork of the Universe and this Natural World and that I am a part of the structure and flow…may you bring to me self-worth and proper alignment on this part of my Journey."

"Energies Sweet, Energies Strong
Comfort and Joy Sing your Song
Power of Earth Plant Crystal and Stone
I honor the North and Journey not Alone.

Holding up the lantern, move slowly to the East...

I am willing to feast oh Enlightening Winds of the East, I call to the Powers of Light and Air to help me find my path."

Lower lantern

"I acknowledge the need for releasing what I know in order that I may grasp the new things. May you bring to me change on this part of my Journey."

"Energies Sweet, Energies Strong
Change and Expansion Sings your Song
Power of Air, Power of Light
I honor the East for my wings of Flight.

Holding up the lantern, move slowly to face the South...

I will keep on, I vow, oh Splendid Fire of the South. I call on the Transforming powers of Fire to help me find my path. "

Lower the lantern

"I acknowledge the creative Life-Force and that I may use it to create harmony or hindrance. May you bring to me fiery pure motives on this part of my Journey."

"Energies Sweet, Energies Strong
Challenge and Honor Sing your Song
Power of Hammer, Wand and Flame
I honor the South with a Fire the same.

Holding up the lantern complete the circle facing West, go to the center and call out...

"Spiritual Realms I call for Protection from anything which may hinder or harm-I now Enter into the (color) Ritual of (purpose) of the Realm of ________."

Place your lantern in a safe place and myst or anoint yourself and your space with appropriate color blend oil and visualize yourself surrounded with the energies, or if you're doing a Ritual bath now is the time to draw it and with intent slowly scrub with the salts and then luxuriate in the waters for as long as you'd like.

When done, towel off then apply the appropriate oil and imagine and visualize your space filling with the Energies you have called in to help you.

Place the tools near you and the crystals on the altar or on your body where needed.

5. Now it is time for the Releasing Meditation or continue on with Your Ritual Spell.

Try to read and visualize the meditation or use the Calya Magickal Meditation CD. After a few times, you'll feel more relaxed and familiar with it. Remember these Rituals and Visualizations will facilitate physiological release by employing mental stimulus-go with the flow of your emotions the flutter of image. Your first thoughts are the most telling, so don't try to figure anything out, just watch the "film." And if your mind takes you in another direction go with that, too. After all, you're seeking deep knowledge-if you access something be proud of yourself, it could be an important piece to the puzzle of your Journey-Quest.

Sometimes you may have trouble "seeing" ; don't worry, just keep going and feel the perception of the words you are reading.

(*Note-There are times when our puzzle is just too traumatic to try to put it back together on our own. Please; many highly trained, beautifully compassionate doctors and therapists are available Journey-wise is not meant as a substitute for Professional assistance-never try to live alone. If you are overly distraught, sad, suicidal, afraid or lonely-tell someone.)

After you close down the meditation give yourself time to Return, Rest and Reflect, before making your Journal Entry.
Then close down the entire circle of energy you have created. Safe Passage.

Sample Ritual Bath

Make Entries in your Journey Book like this:

Date: Jan. 27, 03

Color: Yellow -Courtheon- Ritual of Expansion of the Realm of Matching.

My Issue: I feel a slight discontent like something new is coming.

I gather to me:

  • YELLOW- Bath Salts, CHANGES Oil
  • a Golden Towel and Yellow Robe and Scarf
  • Citrine Crystals
  • a Gold Necklace and Armband with Sunbursts
  • a Carved Yellow Box w/ Sun faces
  • Soft Flute Music CD
  • a Sunburst Votive Lantern w/ Lemon Candle
  • a Pen and Yellow Paper

Start music to continuous play and light the lantern and call in the Directions ending with<

"I call on Spirit Realms to protect me from anything which may hinder or harm. I now enter into the Yellow Ritual of Expansion of the Realm of Matching."

Set the lantern in a safe place and draw a hot bath.

Soak then with purpose, acknowledging the discontent and the changes you feel coming.

Gently scrub with your Courtheon Oil and Salts and rinse.

Relax, review your issue, do some deep relaxation breathing in which you feel and visualize Yellow Energies Flowing in, out, around and through your entire being. Spend as long as you'd like on that step!

Then... Decide to Journey.

Towel off and apply a little oil, especially to the Yellow Realm- Solar Plexus (never to mucus membranes or irritated or sensitive skin) and adorn yourself, put on jewelry.

Next, Put on your robe and scarf (or go sky clad naked). Lay on the floor or bed within your circle, feet to center, head to East and place the Crystals on the solar plexus and near head/eyes, and perform the Yellow Color Healing Meditation with the CD or your book.

Go behind the waterfall, down the tunnel and out into the brightest light where you find your Golden Horse all dressed in yellow/gold. Ride to the village of Hammeril to the East and proceed to the Government buildings of the Courtheon. Complete the Meditation from the Courtheon Meditation pages.

When you have closed down the scene and are back in your space, write down on the paper those things you feel are to changing and put them in your Box.

Ceremoniously lift it high above your head and speak your phrase-

"I put down my box and Open!"

Now, put it slowly down. With this Ritual step you are telling the One and All of the Spirit Realms that you truly desire to change these things.

Give yourself some quiet time to simply enjoy your space.

To truly be open means to try not to plan what you think should happen. Believe that there could be more possibilities than you can comprehend right now. Feel yourself absorbing all the Golden Yellow Light you can from this wonderful Energy Transducer you have created. Breathe it in and out.

When you are done-lift the lantern to the Directions in turn in reverse-to the South, East, North, West, and Center.

"I thank and bless for your help given anew. May I in turn share my Life Fire, Enlightenment, Nurturing Power and Protection with you."

Then as you lift the lantern high, send any remaining Yellow energy of your Ritual out into the Astral Plane to be added to the abundance.

(At the end of any day, meditation, or session, point your Wand (or arms) to the sky and release your color energies into the Astral Realms. Send it out and offer it up to be used where it is most needed with Comfort and Joy!)

"Merry meet Merry Part and Merry we'll meet again."

Visualize the vanishing of your circle and all those who came to help you. Mentally close the door and end the Ritual.
You do not want any "leaking " of energies to happen. This is very important. Much damage and confusion can occur if you are not Responsible enough for your actions to Keep the Worlds Separate. It is your Honorable Duty.

Clean up when ready. Put your tools, in this case your BOX, in a visible place of honor.

Being "in" a color or Realm means that your Unique Journey Path has led you to this place at this time and given You the Enlightened Energies and power abilities to Balance these particular aspects in your life. When in a color you need to do the works of that color and only that color.
To put another Realms work into your life at this time is pure Folly! You have enough to accomplish with your stay in your Color-Coded Realm Message for the day or until it changes.

Each time you enter into a particular Realm you will be working on different pieces of your life's Puzzle Map so that you will have slightly different answers and specifics available to you to gain insight into the "why's" of your core beliefs and the "How to's" of breaking down patterns and beliefs which no longer serve your health, happiness wholeness or honor and the "What's next's" of building the life Realm You would truly like to live.

Safe Passage, O, Seeker.  Journey-Wise!
