Blood Rituals

This is not something to be taken lightly, rituals involving ones essence, ones blood are not to be performed on a whim, and never performed without a clear mind.

The words, mean little more than what you need to set your mind in motion, so they are not mentioned here.

The actions taken, the meticulous nature in which one prepares.

A drip is all one needs from themselves
A heating element to blend and bubble
A hint of Rose Water
A hint of Rosemary

Let it blend, and breathe once boiling. DO NOT DRINK!

This is something I've used for clarity in the past and only use this when I feel I'm being clouded, either in my senses or in my judgment.

When I'm severely lacking and I do not feel like myself, I feel disconnected from the world to a point where I'm spiritually DEAF, I will do the following;

A drip
A ceremonial glass
A pinch of sea salt
A drip (up to a shot glass worth) of rum, preferably a dark rum, in this case I use a rum that has ties to my family and has the hard work of my past bearing in its make. Though I will assume another liquid would be valid, something meaningful to you.

Father, clear my mind and body.
Brothers, aid my soul.
Mother, hold me softly.
Sister, open my eyes.

I have performed both of these in the last month, I felt lost, damaged, lacking in contact with the universe in full. Afterward over the next week, my mind was back to what it once was and I'm seeing what I used to see with utmost clarity. I hear what I used to hear and I feel what I've always felt.

-

I by no means advocate blood magic or ritual as a general everyday practice and do advise that if one uses any essence aside from their own - please, be clean, dear gods be clean - and realize that if ones will is clear the results are generally clear, but if one is clouded and vengeful, you will not like what will come to you in the end.


There are many more out there, but my place here is to HELP.. I will not speak of the others unless I feel the need.
