Banishing and Cleansing Ritual


  • Athame
  • Salt
  • Water

Point your athame at the sky, and then at the earth. Then pointing athame horizontally either spin 360 degrees or walk around the perimeter with the athame held out in a threatening manner.
“Spirits of evil, Unfriendly beings
Unwanted guests, Be gone!
Leave me leave this place, leave this Circle,
that the Goddess and the God may enter.
Go, or be cast into the outer darkness!
Go, or be drowned in the watery abyss!
Go, or be burned in the flames!
Go, of be torn by the whirlwind!
By the power of the Mother and the Horned One
I banish you! I banish you! I banish you!”

Sprinkle the perimeter with salt and water.
