- Your Choice of Smudge Bundle:

In addition to this Ritual Kit you will need the following:
- A glass of mead, beer, or red wine in a fire-resistant glass (not plastic)
- 8"x8" square of plain paper
- Pen or pencil
- Matches or lighter
- Fireproof ritual surface, large enough to safely accommodate the paper.
- Very small cotton or velvet pouch
The Fearless Determination ritual needs to be performed near a window (or skylight) facing the Full Moon. Alternatively, this ritual may be performed in the privacy of your backyard under the Full Moon.
Step 1: Draw the Old Norse Courage Sigils (below) on your sheet of paper. The left sigil should be on one side, the right sigil on the other. It is crucial that you draw these by hand. They do not need to be perfect, but they do need to be yours! Do not print.
Step 2: Lay two ritual candles on top of the backside sigil. Rolling them slowly back and forth over the sigil, allowing the energy to penetrate to the beeswax (beeswax absorbs and expands energy). In your mind's eye, visualize the situation in which you are specifically desiring more courage. See yourself being brave, determined, and unstoppable.
Step 3: Lay two ritual candles on top of the front sigil. Rolling them slowly back and forth over the sigil, allowing the energy to penetrate to the beeswax. In your mind's eye, visualize the situation in which you are specifically desiring more courage. See yourself being brave, determined, and unstoppable.
Step 4: While the candles lay on the front-facing sigil, dust them with about 1/2 teaspoon of the Viking Ritual Blend. Slowly roll them back and forth, allowing the ritual blend to firmly bind to the wax. In your mind's eye, visualize the situation in which you are specifically desiring more courage. See yourself being brave, determined, and unstoppable.
Step 5: Light one ritual candle, hold it at a 45-degree angle directly at the top end of the sigil (see illustration) to create a small pool of wax (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.
Note: It may take you a couple of times to get the hang of this, but once you do, it will become a permanent part of your spellwork repertoire.
Step 6: Repeat Step 5 with the bottom candle.
Step 7: Place the (filled) beverage glass in the center of the sigil, as illustrated.
Step 8: Look at the ale inside the glass. Allow your gaze to soften. The contents will be illuminated by the flame of the candles. It is now absorbing the energies of the sigil and the essence of the burning herbs, roots, and resins. The elixir of courage is brewing.
Step 9: Light your chosen smudge bundle from the flame of a candle. Gently and carefully move the smudge bundle around your body. Pay extra attention to your lower back, tailbone, and both shoulder blades. Next, smudge the space 10 inches or so above your head and the auric field 10 inches or so below your feet. To smudge the space below your feet, you will need to sit with your legs up or bend toward your feet while laying.
Step 10: Allow the candles to burn all the way down.
If the candles set the sigil on fire, take that as a good sign, for it signifies the energies have been fully absorbed into the elixir. Do not remove the glass from the sigil until the fire has completely put itself out.
If the candles extinguish themselves in their own pool of wax, do not worry. Simply light two opposing ends of the sigil (with the glass still being on top) and watch the sigil burn. Consider repeating the ritual the following Full Moon.
Note: Do not try to force or manipulate the candles to burn one way or another. Allow nature to take its force and serve as a divination tool.
Step 11: Once the glass is cool enough to handle, gaze up at the Full Moon, and drink the beverage.
Remnant Disposal: Place the remnants of the ritual inside the small pouch. Carry it with you for 29 days. At the end of the 29th day, bury the remnants (without the pouch) at the base of a mature tree, preferably a spruce or any evergreen.
