CLEARING AND RELEASING
and releasing of excess energy is extremely important. Its important to do this before a magical working so that your energy
will flow freely. Its important to do after a magical working so that the excess energy that may be left in your body doesnt
cause you difficulties.
There are many signs of excess energy. Dizziness, lack of balance, feeling giddy or disoriented.
Excess energy may also be marked by hyperactivity, inability to rest or sleep after a magical working.
There are many
ways that are used to clear and release excess energy.
The following is a good method of clearing energy, and the one
we recommend you start with.
Use this technique before a magical or psychic working to release any tension or anxiety
that you may be holding from the events of the day, so that your energy will flow freely. Use it after the working to release
Put yourself into a comfortable position -it doesnt matter if its sitting, kneeling, or laying down,
but it should not be standing, as you may tend to loose your balance until you become proficient in the technique.
-that is to say imagine very strongly- a bright white light pouring down from above the top of your head and passing through
your whole body, exiting through the soles of your feet. Release all tensions, anxieties, and stresses in your being, imagine
them flowing out of you along with the white light. Let it all pour out of you. Imagine the excess energy as little bits of
darkness being carried away with the light as it flows through you. When the last little bits of darkness are gone, let the
light stop coming down, and let the last of it flow out of you.
Another version of this uses the image of water, rather
than light. Some people find it easier, because the image is more familiar. So if you have difficulty using light, try this;
Again, find a comfortable position. Imagine yourself lying in a river, with the water flowing through you, entering
through the top of your head, and exiting through the soles of your feet. Imagine the excess energy as leaves and twigs and
other detritus as might fall into a river. See the water carry these things away from you. Again, when the last is gone, you
There are many other ways to do this as well. Some people imagine themselves standing before a beautiful
lake. They imagine themselves being very dirty. They walk into the lake, until the water completely covers their head. Then
they see themselves walking back out of the water, completely clean. Other techniques visualize wind blowing through the person,
to blow away the excess energy, or fire burning it away.
Still another technique is to imagine a long root, like the
root of a tree, growing down from your root Chakra (your pelvic region, loosely speaking. Visualize this root going down into
the Earth. If you are in doors, see the root going down through the floor and through any lower levels of the building, then
entering into the Earth. Let the root going down deep into the Earth. Now imagine your excess energy running down through
this root to Mother Earth. When you are done, draw the root back up into yourself.
One can also use physical objects
to help release energy.
One of the simplest ways to do this is to put a bit of salt on the tip of your tongue, or run
the tips your fingers through some salt. This will have a natural grounding effect, eliminating the excess energy.
technique is to hold a piece of HAEMATITE or an item made out of LEAD. These substances too, have a natural grounding quality,
and will have some effect by themselves. But to get the best effect, hold the object and imagine the excess energy draining
into them from all parts of your body. When you are finished, hold the object under a stream of cold water (such as a bathroom
faucet) and imagine white light pouring through the stone as the water washes it. This cleanses the stone.
case the excess energy returns to the Mother Goddess when you release it. She will recycle it, putting it to good use elsewhere.
Some people like to say an affirmation when they release such as I clear and release all excess energy. or I release this
energy to the Goddess, to be used elsewhere. This sets a clear intent, and can sometimes help to focus the process. It is
not necessary to say the affirmation out loud.
All of these techniques are good, but we feel the white light, or else
the water, are preferable because they tie into things you will learn in successive lessons, and as well as releasing excess
energy. They also exercise important psychic muscles that you will need later. But as in all things, the most important aspect
is that it works well for you.
From our earliest
beginnings as a species, we have recognized the healing and purifying qualities of water.
Immersion in water has always
been a sacred act, as cleansing to the soul as to the body. In ancient times wells, lakes, and rivers were considered sacred,
and people would immerse themselves to release negative energy, help heal spiritual blockages or imbalances, and prepare for
ceremonies. Even today Hindus immerse themselves in the sacred Ganges river as an act of both spiritual and physical cleansing.
spell is in the form of a ritual bath. A ritual bath is not for physical washing, but for meditation and to effect changes
using the energy of the water and whatever may be added to it. This particular bath is for cleansing and blessing.
this spell you will need:
*a bath tub
*a handful of salt
*a handful of dried Rosemary
*a handful of dried
*white candles, as many as you wish
*a mirror -your bathroom mirror is fine
Sea salt is preferred,
but any kind of salt may be used. The herbs may be added loose to the water, or you may tie them up in a square of cheese
cloth for easier clean-up afterward.
It is not necessary to use candles, but are beneficial and will help to create
a conducive atmosphere.
If you have access to it, a fragrant essential oil is preferred. Essential oils may be purchased
at metaphysical stores, but also at bath shops or stores that carry aromatherapy products. A good oil to use would be Sandalwood.
If you do not have access to essential oil, any oil can be used, especially Olive oil which has a long history of use in sacred
Pick a time when you will not be disturbed. Have all of your materials together.
Run a tub full of
warm water. The water should be comfortable, so adjust it to taste.
While the water is running, add the salt, Rosemary,
If you are using candles, light them and turn off the electric lights.
When the bath is ready, take
a moment to ground and release, as you have learned how to do in the Exercises section of this lesson.
Now make a prayer,
both to ask the help of Goddess, and to help set your intent. You can use words like these:
O Mother Goddess, help
me to cleanse myself now of all that holds me back or blocks my growth and progress. Help me as I embrace my fullest potential
and I open my heart to growth.
Now get into the water.
Rinse yourself thoroughly, so that every part of
your body gets wet, including your face and hair.
Now lay back.
Let the warmth of the
water soak into you.
Take a few moments just to appreciate the sensation.
Now reflect upon your life.
about every part of your life that has ever held you back in any way. Every pain, sorrow, and anxiety. Every fear, hesitation,
or self-imposed limitation. Review every painful memory, every event that ever hurt you. Be as thorough as you can.
as you think of each thing, make an affirmation to yourself and to the Universe;
I release this. It leaves me now.
can say these words, or words to this effect, out loud, or concentrate on them silently.
Release each and every issue
that holds you back. When you cannot think of any others, augment your efforts with a prayer like this;
O Mother Goddess,
look within my soul and help me to release whatever remains that I have not seen.
Now clear your mind. When thoughts
come, do not respond to them, but let them drift right back out of your mind.
Meditate this way for a few minutes.
Let the Goddess look inside you. Remain this way as long as you are comfortable.
Now rise. Stand up. Think of all the
things which you have released. Affirm;
All that I have released, I leave behind me. May their energy return to the
Mother to be reused.
So saying, step out of the tub.
Do not dry off -let the air dry you, as you continue the
Look into the mirror. Examine the face that stares back at you. Remind yourself;
This is a good person.
it. Tell yourself;
I love this person. This is the child of the Goddess, whom She loves.
Now take up the oil.
Open it, and dab out a little onto your fingers.
Reach down and annoint the top of each foot with the oil. Affirm;
be my feet, that I may walk in sacred paths.
Now dab a little more oil onto your fingertips. Annoint both knees. Affirm;
be my knees, that I may kneel at the altar of the Ancient Ones.
Now get a bit more oil for your fingertips. Annoint
your pelvic region (just above your pubic area, or where you please). Affirm;
Blessed be my womb/penis, that I may
bring forth life, and art, and joy.
Place a bit more oil on your fingers. Annoint the center of your chest. Affirm;
be my heart, which is formed in beauty, that I may love and recieve love.
Now take a bit more oil. Annoint your lips,
Blessed be my lips, that I may speak the Words of Power in time to come.
Finally, take a little
more oil, and annoint the very center of your forehead. Affirm;
Blessed be my Minds Eye, that I may see the unseen,
and receive the messages of Spirit.
Now look into the mirror, and speak words to the effect of;
In the name
of the Goddess, I am blessed. Like a flower I shall open and grow. May all that I have released be replaced with the love
and blessings of the Mother. So mote it be.
You have now finished. Clear and release all excess energy, as you have
learned to do.
You may feel an immediate difference from this spell. You may not. It can sometimes take days for the
effects of the spell to become manifest. They deepen with time.
Not every aspect which you have released will necessarily
disappear completely. You may have to go back and do additional healing for some. This is normal. Sometimes releasing works
in layers, with each successive ritual releasing a little bit more.
And above all remember, practice makes perfect.
If at first you have trouble with some aspects of the spell, such as the meditation or the concentration, do not be discouraged
-practice! Skill is built through use.

OIL - Within the three days prior to the actual full moon, but not
after! Gather the ingredients required, along with
a pestle and mortar to
blend them in. If desired, you can use your cauldron, and some sort of
crushing or mixing tool.
1 ounce (about 30 grams) of the finest sandalwood powder you can find
5 grams (a marble sized
nugget) of amber resin. (NOT the stone! The soft,
sweet smelling resin that is often imported from India, available at
food stores, and of course herb and Witch shops.)
3 drops of vanilla essential oil. (NOT the perfume or fragrance
true vanilla from the orchid [Vanilla planifolia or Vanilla aromatica] If
this is cost prohibitive or unavailable,
use real vanilla extract available
at most any grocery store.)
Preferably outside, under the actual full moon, or
indoors near a window
where the moon is visible: Fill the mortar or cauldron with the sandalwood powder, and crush the
amber into it with the pestle or tool of your choice.
Use CLOCKWISE or DEOSIL blending motions. Focus on the energy of
the full moon, or if you are making the incense for a specific spell, focus on the goal of that spell alone. You can incorporate
your favorite words of power or chant while doing this.
When the powder is smooth and consistent, add the vanilla, one
drop at a
time while saying your chosen words of power, (which is best) or the
following (which will suffice in most
cases): "Drop of moon, grant my boon."
Blend in the drops in the same way you blended in the amber resin. Place the mixture
in a clear glass jar with an airtight lid. Keep it away from heat, sunlight, and moisture. Charge it under the light of the
full moon on the three days prior to it becoming actually full.The full moon light
penetration is the reason for not storing
this in an opaque jar. It is ready
for use immediately, but can be charged more if desired.
