to purify one's self, as adapted from Buckland:
set up altar with the following: 2 altar candles, 1 censer for incense, 1 pink candle, 1 white candle, 1 candle to represent you (the petitioner)
1. light the altar candles giving respect and love to the deities
2. light the incense
3. light the petitioner candle: say this: "Here stands __ whose spirit burns as truly as does this flame. She is upstanding, steadfast and true. Purity is her name."
4. light the pink candle thinking of your great love and honor then say: "Here is her honor and her righteousness"
5. light the white candle thinking of your purity and grace, all the good things you are and say: "And here also is her purity and sincerity"
6. Focus on all these good qualities you have and concentrate your mind and spirit that you want them to stay with you. You are pure. Then say:
"The high priestess attended by her handmaids/came out from the east and arrived/at last on the banks of a stream./There did she pause and her eyesreflecting the glimmering of the waters,/ she smiled and lifted her arms to the skies./ Her handmaids approached her;/with musical laughter/they began to remove the ladies garments./The delicate raiments of silk they laid beside the stream,/ and upon them were laid the high priestess' ritual gems/ As the youngest of them brushed her mistress hair,/the others clasped their hands together and/with cries of delight,/run down the bank and into the silvery stream./ There did they splash and run and jump and cry;/water nymphs, sprites all of them./ The dust of their journey fell from their bodies./And also fell from them the dross of their cares./Cleansed they were as they played in that sparkling ribbon of water, wending twixt its grass-and tree - clad banks./Cleansed they were, and pure again."
7. contemplate the scene and meditate on your own cleansing. Repeat the ritual every three days as long as you want.
