Starting at the North side of the room, point your finger or wand and say the following as you imagine white light energy streaming forth from your finger and forming a circle around you while reciting the following;

"I cast this circle to create a sacred space,

No unwanted energies can enter this space,

Statement of Purpose

This is simply to tell the Divine why you have called him/her to the circle; what you ate trying to accomplish.

Magickal Working
