Altar Blessing and Empowerment

Needed:

  • Scented oil or perfume
  • Holy water
  • Scented oil
  • Incense
  • Miniature broom
  • Salt
  • 2 bowls
  • Red candle
  • Candle holder
  • Inspirational music

Pass the four elements (red candle, incense, salt, and water) over the altar three times in a clockwise direction. Imagine that you are stirring positive energies into action.

Once this is done, place the incense in the east, the fire in the south, water in the west, and the salt in the north. Dab the scented oil on each corner of the altar, and then in the middle saying:
“I bless and consecrate thee, O sacred altar, in the name of Spirit. May you repel negative energy and collect positive energy from this day forward until the end of time. So mote it be.”

Draw an equal-armed cross in the air over the altar surface to seal the positive energies to the material it’s made of. Tap the edge of the altar four times, once for each direct, then say:
“As above, so below. This altar is sealed. So mote it be!”
