hi, you could join a coven here and get guidance, or if you are looking for a mentor maybe i could help... first i would start with a self dedication ritual as follows...sincerely eosjos
Self Dedication for the Solitary Practitioner
Prepare yourself by drawing a bath of warm water. Add a tablespoon or
so of salt and a few drops of a scented oil such as Sandalwood. If
you have no bath, use a shower. Fill a washcloth with salt, add a few
drops of essential oil, and rub your body. If you're performing this
ritual at the sea or river, bathe there if you so desire. As you
bathe, prepare for the coming ritual. Open your consciousness to
higher levels of awareness. Deep breathe. Cleanse your mind as well
as your body.
After bathing, dry and dress for the journey. Go to a place in the
wild where you feel safe. It should be a comfortable spot where you
won't be disturbed by others, an area where the powers of the Earth
and the elements are evident. It may be a mountain top, a desert , a
cave, perhaps a dense forest, a rocky outcropping over the sea, a
quiet island in the center of a lake. Even a lonely part of a park or
garden can be used. Draw your imagination to find the place.
You need take nothing with you but a vial of richly scented oil ?
Sandalwood, Frankincense, Cinnamon or any other scent is fine and
your ritual. When you arrive at the place of dedication, remove your
shoes and sit quietly for a few moments. Calm your heart if you've
exerted yourself during your travel. Breathe deeply to return to
normal, and keep your mind free of cluttered thoughts. Open yourself
to the natural energies around you. When you're calm, rise and pivot
slowly on one foot, surveying the land around you. You're seeking the
ideal spot. Don't try to find it; open your awareness to the place.
When you've discovered it (you'll know when), sit, kneel or lie flat
on your back. Place the oil on the Earth beside you. Don't stand ?
contact the Earth.
Continue deep breathing. Feel the energies around you. Call the
Goddess and God in any words you like, or use the following
invocation. Memorize these words before the ritual so that they'll
spill effortlessly from you, or improvise:
O Mother Goddess,
O Father God,
Answers to all mysteries and yet mysteries unanswered;
In this place of power I open myself to Your Essence.
In this place and in this time I am changed;
From henceforth I walk the Wiccan path.
I dedicate myself to you, Mother Goddess and Father God.
(Rest for a moment, silent, still. Then continue.)
I breathe your energies into my body, co-mingling, blending,
Mixing them with mine,
That I may see the divine in nature,
Nature in the divine,
And divinity within myself and all else.
O Great Goddess,
O Great God,
Make me one with your essence
Make me one with your essence
Make me one with your essence.
You may feel bursting with power and energy, or calm and at peace.
Your mind might be in a whirl. The Earth beneath you may throb and
undulate with energy. Wild animals, attracted by the psychic
occurrence, might grace you with their presence.
Whatever occurs, know that you have opened yourself and that the
Goddess and God have heard you. You should feel different inside, at
peace or simply powerful.
After the invocation, wet a finger with the oil and mark the
pentagram symbol somewhere on your body. It doesn't matter where; you
can do this on your chest, forehead, arms, legs, anywhere. As you
anoint, visualise this symbol sinking into millions of tiny points of
