In our practice of the cunning path, there comes upon occasion the need to heal in one form or another. As a practitioner of Traditional Crafte, I have encountered many forms of healing from energy to herbal. This, in conjuction with modern medical techniques lend a cunning man or woman the ability to assist their prospective tribe in all aspects of their lives. Below, find a simple ritual that I have found effective. In fact, it saved my life -
Basic Healing Ritual -
Herbs appropriate to the healing being done
Kettle of boiling water
Pine or Oak bough
Bowl of water
Light candles, incense and smudge. Smudge the room. Utilize the Sphere Working to clear and prepare the room and patient for healing. Take up the Athame and describe an upright pentagram over the herbs saying:
“Oh creature of (name of element), remove the affliction of (name of affliction) from (name of patient), child of the Dark Mother and the Witch Father. Allow the body to heal with thy powers. As it is, so shall it be.”
Place the herbs into the teapot. Pour the boiling water over them saying:
“Release thy healing powers into the water of life and give comfort and health to whomsoever drinks of your bounty. In the name of the Mother and the Father, as it is, so shall it be.”
Let the herbs steep for about 10-20 min. Pour into a cup. Take up the Athame or Wand and describe the pentagram of Spirit over it saying:
“Unto the body you are healing. Go straight and pure to heal this child of the Mother and the Father. Let (name of ailment) be banished away and never to return. As it is, so shall it be.”
Give the brew to the patient and have them drink it til it is gone. Say :
“Dark Mother, thank you for giving me life and breath of the magic way. I praise everyday that I am your child and you are my Mother of All. Thank you and bless all that has been done here. As it is, so shall it be.”
“Witch Father, thank you for giving me the courage of life and knowledge of the natural way. I praise everyday that I am your child and you are my Witch Father of the sky and sun. Thank you and bless all that has been done here. As it is, so shall it be.”
Make offerings of incense to the Dark Mother and Witch Father.
You may need to repeat this again if the ailment doesn't disperse within a day or two. Also, you should give the patient more of the healing herb blessed by you to take throughout the day at regular intervals depending on the affliction and herb being taken.
Until next time.....
