not light any candles yet.
STEP 2: Blend the essential
oils of anise, basil, frankincense,
lavender, myrrh, and sweet
almond oil. (If you can't find
all of these, it's OK to
blend just 3 of the 5.)
STEP 3: "Dress" (annoint) your
candles with the oil.
STEP 4: Light the candles.
STEP 5: Start some of your favorite
soothing music... it helps to
have something that generates
feelings of happiness, serenity,
creativity, and adventure in you...
(I like Enya.)
STEP 6: Sit calmly at your altar.
Place your palms on your altar.
STEP 7: Gaze at one of your candles,
let it's flame warm your spirit.
STEP 8: Imagine the spirits of
anyone you've lost that meant
something to you... being drawn
to you. (These could be the
same spirits you called on last
STEP 9: Say:
"Spirits of good, I draw you to
These flames call out to thee.
Come to my side, and we'll join
Through the days and weeks, it's
love my heart sends."
STEP 10: sit in calm and peace
for as long as you wish. You'll
know when you're done... open
the circle, the ritual is done.
