Self-Dedication Ritual

Cast the circle. Invoke the Goddess and God. Take a few moments to meditate on whatever you heart is feeling at the moment. Kneel before the altar and say:
“I, (mundane name), call upon the Lady and Lord, and the Guardians of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water to witness that I, of my own free will, have chosen to walk the path of the Wicca. I dedicate myself to the Goddess and God. I promise not to use the craft to bring harm or go against another's will. I will not use my knowledge to impress others, nor use my powers to scare them. I promise to follow the Wiccan Rede to the best of my ability. I promise to continue to learn all that I can about myself, my craft, and life itself. I promise to strive to accomplish all Thirteen Goals, even if only one at a time.”

If you have chosen a Wiccan name (whether it is public, magickal, or personal), now is the time to tell it:
“As a token of my promise, I shall now take on the (public/magickal/personal) name (Wiccan name). May the Lady and Lord recognize this as my (public/magickal/personal) name. May the Old Ones watch over me, as always, on my chosen path.”

Thank the Goddess and God. Release the circle.
