Before using any item in magical workings or sacred rituals, it's common practice to cleanse and consecrate the item. Cleansing, to replace any negative energy that your new item might've picked up on its way to you, and consecration to declare it sacred and holy, and set its purpose with your intent.
This is my very favorite cleansing and consecration ritual and possibly the best spell I've ever created. It's evocative and powerful.
I keep hearing from customers who were expecting their purchases to come with instructions for use. :) The truth is, there's no right way to do anything. There's only your way. But if you want to know some of my ways, I've decided to offer some pages straight from my own personal Book of Shadows that will include some basic, (traditional the way I learned it,) rituals and rites. I'm trying to address the things people most often ask about too, and then I'll add things I think you might enjoy.
In the Craft, an equal exchange of energy is said to be crucial to magic. These pages from my most treasured book of wisdom cannot be free. They are 99¢ per download. I recommend you print them on parchment, punch holes and add them to your own collection.
You are not to share these. The energy exchange, the coin for the spell, is an important part of the magic. To share breaks the pact, and the energy returns to its source.
Magic works because you treat it as sacred. It works because you believe in it. Treat these pages as sacred texts for which you traded fairly. Treat them as hallowed, and hallowed they'll be.
