The Old World Witchcraft Oracle Ritual Blend attracts helpful spirits, particularly ancestral spirits. This ritual is designed to facilitate contact specifically with ancestral spirits, allowing you to communicate and, if appropriate, ask for favors. Ideal for the Dark Moon or Samhain night.
You Will Need:
Step 1: Warm up an Old World Ritual Candle between the palm of your hands. The wax needs to be warm enough to easily adhere about 1/2 teaspoon of the Oracle Ritual Blend. It is crucial that the ritual blend adheres and burns throughout the ritual! Light the candle as you audibly welcome the ancestor into your space. Welcome them as if they are about to enter your home. Say their name, say you have missed them and that you wish to communication with them.
Step 2: Create a small pool of wax in the center of the photograph (3-4 drops of wax will do). Stick the candle directly into the pool of wax and hold it for about 5 seconds, until the center hardens just a bit and the candle is standing upright without any assistance.
Step 3: Position yourself so that you can gaze into the ancestors eyes (or alternative ancestral tool) while looking at the outer edge of the flame. Your gaze should soften and become out of focus.
Your own senses of sight and sound will drown out for just a few seconds.
You may suddenly get the chills and feel as though a cold breeze just passed you.
This is perfectly normal. By this point you will feel the room drop a few degrees.
Step 4: Light the Mugwort Smudge Bundle from the flame of the candle. Quietly ask the ancestor(s) to come join you and begin asking them questions, as you would in the physical form.
Scents will begin coming through a this point. Your aunts perfume? Your grandfathers cigars?
Step 5: Start writing down any mental impressions, sounds, scents or ideas that come through your mind. Don't overthink them in the moment, simply start writing. It will all make sense in time!
Step 6: The candle burns for approximately 20-30 minutes, depending on the temperature in the room, possible drafts and the amount of Oracle Ritual Blend used. If choosing to extend the ritual, warm up another candle between the palms of your hands dust another candle with the Oracle Ritual Blend. It is crucial that the ritual blend adheres and burns throughout the ritual! Light it from the original candle and place on top of or alongside the original candle.
Step 7: As the candle comes close to extinguishing itself, thank your ancestor and graciously tell them that it is now time for them to return to the spirit world.
Step 8: Walk outside and leave the food/drink offering to sit out overnight. In the morning, pour or bury the offering into the Earth.
