Self Dedication Rite
Choose a secret magickal name, choose wisely and take some time before finally committing to it. Here are some things to ponder on –
Would you choose the name of a warrior ? – you may have many battles to fight!
Would you choose the name of someone who had a tragic life? – enough said
When I choose mine I believed that I had made it up then one day quite by chance I found it written – first I was dumfounded – then I was delighted – my name chose me. Once you have chosen yours you can decide where and when you will perform your rite.
Gather together all the things that you will need
Tall Candles & holders, small T lite candles, matches, salt, water, an athame or wand, small dishes anointing oil that you can make yourself. Cast your circle then sit or kneel comfortably in front of your table or altar. Close your eyes and as you breath in, picture positive white light energy filling your body. As you breath out, breath away all negative energy. After some minutes, you will feel all tension flowing away from your mind and body. Allow pure light energy to flow into and through your entire body filling your sacred space, filling your room. When you are completely relaxed stand up and move quietly to the east quarter of your room.
“Lady you have been know by many, I worship and adore you and invite you to join me in body and spirit. Be with me and guide me in the true ways”.
Draw a pentacle in the air above you and one below you and say
“You are here and I thank you for the gifts that you have given and I know that you only help those who help them selves.
“By candle light I make my vow, the Olde Ways fore ‘er from now.
I name myself ***** in the witches’ way, this I be know as from this day
It is my will for all to see, let it harm none. So mote it be”
“Before the God and Goddess, from this moment on I (your name), will be known as (your craft name), within the circle of the wise to symbolise my rebirth.
I promise to honour the God and the Goddess in all areas of my life.
I will work to understand their great mysteries
I will work to understand the mystery of myself.
I will share my knowledge with those who seek my help
I will protect and guard the Old Ways from those who would scorn them.
I will defend the God and Goddess
I will work in harmony with the Earth
I will honour Plant, Animal, Spirit, and Man.
I will embrace the elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth
I will honour and respect my brothers and sisters within or out with the Craft.
What I send forth will return thrice over so I send it forth with light and love.
So mote it be”.
Give thanks to the elements and close your circle
