There is an advantage when a Wiccan Ceremony has an opening and closing routine. The very essence of any Magic ritual is repeating the same routine. It helps you to slip into Wiccan ritual consciousness more quickly, as though it were second nature.
To be capable of creating the energy you need for the successful spell, you must be in good physical condition. Watch your diet and try to stick to natural foods. Cleanliness, before working Magic, is necessary. It is a good practice to cleanse the inner body by eating and drinking only water, honey, whole wheat bread and avoid drinking alcohol or smoking for twenty-four hours before the ritual. You’ll feel great if you are in good shape.
Before the ceremony, as a part of your ritual, take a bath with added salts, oils, or herbs to reach a level of harmony. Use fresh, clean water and if you can, use bath salts or herbs designated for your particular ritual’s outcome. For herb baths, gather a small bunch of the herb(s), tie them in a little muslin and put it into the tub itself. While in the water, focus your thoughts on the objective of the ritual ahead.
Oils can be used to dress the candles, in the ritual bath, and directly on the skin. You can buy them offline or online, the variety of available oils is exceptional. You could blend two or more and develop your oils.
One word of caution: buy from the same source to avoid possible incompatibility. Use a specially made glass container if you decide to combine oils and pour them slowly and gently, swirling clockwise. Oils are very complex and need careful handling, do not shake or stir. Measure them with a separate eyedropper for each to avoid pollution. Store them in dry and dark place, away from heat and light.
You have a good choice of ready-made bath salts, but making your own is fast and easy. The main ingredients are equal parts table or sea salt, Epsom salts, and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). Mix thoroughly and concentrate on the purpose of the salts and the ritual.
The manner you dress would affect the way you feel and your success in most human activities. Some people do candle burning in their everyday clothes and enjoy a reasonable degree of success. I’m confident that they would have greater success if they were more concerned with what they wore. The reason is simple: when you put on distinctive clothing, used exclusively for Magic rites, your mind is much more open to the Magic itself. Many Wiccans strip naked while performing Magic rituals. To go through the process of removing all clothes can be as emotionally energizing as putting on distinctive garments.
