Music- preferably a song that makes you relax. some suggestions are anywhere is by Enya, Terra Frimma by delirium and my personal favorite for this ritual return to innocence by enigma
Athame or some form of cutting tool- you'll need this to cut through emotional ties. If you don't use an athame you can consecrate a pair of clippers or something.
your favorite incense- nothing too strong but something light Nag champa works well.
Gatorade- you can substitute wine for this if your underage like me but even so because this is a purifying ritual it might not be a good idea to pollute your body with alcohol for this ritual. the Gatorade can be any flavor you like the reason I used this was for the fact it had a light taste to it. if you can't stand Gatorade use a some sort of sport drink because the put electrolytes back into your body. if you can't stand any sport drink use what ever you like that has an airy taste to it.
a new small piece favorite crystal and a small velvet bag- this is use a a power storer that you'll keep on you for at least until the full moon.
Preparation~ Take a cleansing bath and set up the altar ( If your Obsessive Compulsive about correspondences put the altar in the west and use a light purple altar cloth)
Step 1-cast circle
step 2 light the incense and take the crystal, allow the crystal to be bathed in smoke and ask the crystal to bring energy to you until the full moon.
step 3- sit down and get into a meditative state, while there scan your body and find any and all emotional links (these are what you make when you tune into people, empaths especially are venerable to these but some forget to sever the links when they are no longer useful and in turn that makes them quite dangerous and draining. you've found them when you feel a slight tugging or heaviness.) take you athame (or cutting tool) and sever them asking that your energy come back to you. ( if you can't part with these links for some reason then skip this step unless you can Identify who or what each link goes to.
step 4- Imagine a bright pulsating light over you and draw it in feel your emotions and life returning to you. Feel, know and BELIEVE you are alive! this can be a very moving experience!
step 5- take you crystal and draw the remaining energy into it, them place it in the bag and let no one see or touch it carry it on you always until the full moon, look at it every day. on the night of the full moon ritually clean it and place it on your altar until you need it again.
step 6- drink the Gatorade and sate how you feel about this new beginning & pour a bit of it into the libation bowl for the gods
step 7- open the circle and it's done
