Cleansing The Circle Area

Once all the materials and tools have been blessed and purified (if you haven’t already done this you should do so before cleansing the area) it is time to use them to cleanse the ritual area. Start at the east with the incense and walk around what will be the circle boundary (clockwise) while visualizing yellow smoke rising from the ground. As you do so, say:

By Her fragrant breath, the Air
By winds blown cold and breezes fair,
Be cleansed of all negativity.
As I will, so mote it be.

Now leave the incense to burn in place at the eastern Quarter and proceed to the South. Light the candle that is alreay there and hold it in your hand. Beginning at the South walk around the boundary again, and this time visualize red smoke rising from the ground. Say:

By Her burning will’s desire
Dancing flame and burning Fire,
Be cleansed of all negativity.
As I will, so mote it be.

Now put the candle back in its quarter and go to the altar. Pick up the bowl of water and starting with the western quarter, walk the boundary whilst sprinkling the water. This time visualize blue smoke and say:

By the Water that flows through Her veins
Forceful storms and gentle rains,
Be cleansed of all negativity.
As I will, so mote it be.

Leave the dish or bowl at the western quarter and return to the altar. Pick up the container of salt and starting in the northern quarter, again walk the boundary. Visualize green smoke and say:

By Earth that is Her body round
By mountain, valley, hill, and mound,
Be cleansed of all negativity.
As I will, so mote it be.

Leave the container or dish of salt in the northern quarter. Now go to the center of the circle area and stand there, holding your hands out, palm upwards. Visualize a white or purple smoke and say:

By Elements of sky and ground
I purify this Circle round
By Air and Fire, by water and Earth
It’s cleansed in love and light and mirth.
You are now ready to cast your Circle.
