Cleansing your Home Ritual

Cleansing your Home Ritual
To be performed during at the New Moon, but may be performed at any time in 
Items you will need                                                                         
New white Candle (any size with holder) 
small bowls for Water and Salt 
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 
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 centre 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 centre 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 
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.
