Banish by your preferred method.
Step 2:State your intention out loud.
Verbalize the following, or adjust to your needs. "It is my Will to clear out the negativevibrations that most resonate with the current malaise from myself." (As stated before, this isa malaise/dread not so much at the individual level, per se, but more at a global level. Thereisn't a great way to describe this- but many of you may recognize a ring of truth from the backof your mind- that you've been feeling that 'something isn't quite right with the world'- thatwould be largely what we are addressing here.
Step 3: Call upon the Divine Force you areworking with.
In each of the first steps you are evoking
of the following powers. We encourage you toinvoke the spiritual force that you feel closest to. Build an appropriate altar. Place the tea onthe altar.Some that I can recommend include:Erzulie Freya (Vodou), Quan Yin (Buddhism), Haniel (Western Ceremonial Magic), Babalon(Western Ceremonial Magic, Thelemic directions), Venus (Greek Goddesses), Freya (NorseGoddesses), St. Mary (Catholic Saint).The key for this part of the ritual is calling on a goddess that supports love and healing indifferent fashions. Other goddesses that promote healing and removing of negativity can beused as a substitute for the first part of this ritual. Perform this part of the ritual until you feeltheir presence. Included in the appendix to this longer ritual are methods to evoke the aboveexample powers into the space. You need only to evoke and should only call on
of theDivine forces above and then should continue to the next part of the ritual. Some othersuggestions include Isis, Aphrodite, Certain aspects of the Christos Spirit, Oshun, morepowerful shamanic or magician ancesters may also work if they have tremendous healingpowers. Ultimately, we leave the choice of entity to you in your own work to maximize theusefulness of the ritual. This part of the ritual should take at least 30 minutes, and you shouldallow yourself to be swept into that state of love, mercy or similar linked concept while havingan active altar created for connecting to the above powers. The Appendix will give somesample rituals to give you ideas.
Step 4: Drink the Tea (now charged fromhaving been on the altar)Step 5: Activate the Seal
Once the presence of the goddess is fully and completely felt. The participants should chantin a slow methodical fashion:
"Ya Me O Ta U"
while staring at the following seal.
