I completed the clearing today.
After opening my circle and welcoming the Elements from all four points, I set my tools on the East Stone and placed the wand in the center while I grounded. Once I felt the Earth flowing up through me I began.
First thanking the Melaleuca Tree for its giving, and feeding the tree a nice compost.
Censor to the East, and placing fresh Sage and Lavender upon the coal, with smoke rising..........
While passing the wand through the cleansing smoke 3 times,
"With the Element of Air, I blow away any negative energies from this wand, so only positive remain."
White candle burning to the South,
While passing the wand through the flame 3 times.
"With the Element of Fire, I burn away any negative energies from this wand, so only positive remain."
Chalice to the West, filled with blessed water.
While placing the tip of the wand in the water.
"With the Element of Water, I wash away any negative energies from this wand, so only positive remain."
White celler with himalayan sea salt to the North.
While sprinkling the salt over the wand.
"With the Element of Earth, I bury any negative energies from this wand, so only positive remain.
Now cleansed and while still deeply grounded, I let the energy spiral upward and outward through me, and spiral clockwise through the wand, pausing briefly at the tip while facing the rising sun.
Holding the wand up to the Lord and Lady, Sun and Moon,
"Oh Lord and Lady, may you charge and protect this wand from any negativity."
"May your blessing be upon it as I dedicate the work of this wand for positive purpose only."
"And it harm none, may this wand well work my will."
"As I will, so make it be."
Placed in the center of my circle, to charge in the sunlight, and tonight in the moonlight.
I am well pleased with this working. Should I be so inclined and invited, I may make more with different woods. Or perhaps a walking staff as Wilde is planning would be as enjoyable.......
