Information & Ritual Uses
This Blossom Into Love Ritual focuses on healing the heart chakra and opening (blooming) oneself to manifesting love in every area of life. Existing relationships will become kinder and more agreeable. New relationships will begin to present themselves at every turn. Self-love and self-esteem will bloom to new heights.
Life always mirrors back to us the feelings we have inside. As you develop your inner sense of love, the right person to share your growing sense of intimacy will be attracted to you like a magnet.
This ritual is also very powerful in existing relationships. It allows your partner to reflect to you the energies you put forth within yourself, resulting in a more satisfying romantic relationship and fidelity.
This Ritual Kit includes:
Follow the Bloom Into Love ritual outlined below to open your energetic pathways to love. Love will increase in your life in every manner that is possible. Existing relationships will become kinder and more agreeable. New relationships will begin to present themselves at every turn. Personal magnetism becomes undeniable.
If possible, perform this ritual at sunrise. The morning light and rising sun will propel your energy.
In addition to this Ritual Kit, you will need:
- A small mirror that can stand upright on its own or be propped up on your altar.
- Paper circle 4" in diameter
- Fireproof surface (recommended Slate Board on Amazon)
Find a quiet space and time where you will not be disturbed. Ideally, this particular ritual should be performed near a window (or outside) where you can see the rising sun or at the very least, the morning light. As with all rituals, your space should be fireproof. No curtains or other flammables nearby.
Set all materials within close reach in your ritual space. You should be able to reach everything while remaining in one place. Once the ritual has started, you should not leave the sacred space until you have finished the ritual.
Take a deep breath and allow your body and your mind to relax.
Breathe out stress, breathe in joy.
Breathe out worry, breathe in comfort.
Breathe out tension, breathe in serenity.
Step 1: In a spiral form, write within the paper circle the following statement:
"I am ready for love. I am able and willing to accept love. I deserve love. I am surrounded by love. I freely give and freely receive love. I AM LOVE."
This is now your ritual mantra.
Step 2: Pick up a single Old World Ritual Candle and start rolling it between the palms of your hands. Beeswax absorbs and expands energy, which is why we use pure beeswax candles for all rituals. Gaze at yourself in the mirror, look directly into your own eyes, and chant the mantra. Continue this step until the wax warms up and the Old World Ritual Candle becomes a bit sticky.
Step 3: Lay the Old World Ritual Candle on top of the paper and dust with 1/2 teaspoon of the Blossom Ritual Blend
Step 4: Roll the candle in the Ritual Blend right on top of the spiral paper. Continue chanting your mantra.
Step 5: With heartfelt authority, exclaim your mantra aloud. Light the candle and drip about 3-4 drops of wax directly into the center of the paper circle (center of the spiral), creating a small pool of wax in the center. Firmly stick the base of the candle directly into the pool of wax and hold it for about 5 seconds. The center quickly hardens and the candle will stand 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 ritual repertoire.
Step 6: Position yourself so that you can look through the exterior of the flame, directly into your own eyes in the mirror. Begin chanting your mantra with love, as you look at yourself. Some of you will get goosebumps, others will begin to cry. These are the energies and tears of your soul's recognition of love.
Step 7: Light the Lavender Smudge Bundle from the flame of the candle. Smudge your physical and energetic body. Starting with your feet, allow the smoke to envelop your legs, torso, arms, shoulders, and head. Sit or lay down and smudge the energetic space that is 3 feet "below" your feet and the 3 feet above your head.
Step 8: Sit quietly in meditation for a few minutes, continue gazing through the exterior of the flame or close your eyes. Feel the serenity and joy of knowing that the work is done and your pathways to love are now opening.
More often than not, the candles will extinguish themselves in their own puddle of wax. Pay close attention and do not let the candles accidentally catch the paper on fire. Stay put the remainder of the burn. If the flame begins to catch the paper on fire, quickly blow it out.
An average Old World Ritual Candle burns 20-45 minutes, all based on your environment (temperature, drafts, amount of herbs used, etc.).
After the candle burns down the following morning you will need to create another one to take its place -- resume the ritual from Step 2. The same paper spiral should be reused for all six days of the ritual. The new candle should be placed directly on top of the same paper circle and the remnants of wax/herbs from the previous days' ritual. You will need to repeat this ritual for 6 consecutive mornings, including the herb application on every new Old World Ritual Candle
Step 9: What you do with the remains of your ritual (wax, paper, ashes, etc.) is just as important as the ritual itself! The ritual does not end when the candles extinguish. The ritual is not complete until you return the remnants back to the Earth. The Earth and the universal energy carry and propel your magick and your spellwork to its full completion.
Make sure your disposal method does not contradict your desired outcome by completing your spellwork following the disposal methods:
- For welcoming a new lover (unknown) lover into your life, bury the ritual remnants in your front yard near your door. If you live in an apartment or if burying in your front yard is not an option, acquire a healthy houseplant. Place the houseplant in the closest area near your front door where the plant still receives adequate sunlight. Place the ritual remnants in the dirt of the houseplant. Care for this plant the same way you would care for your own heart and emotional well-being.
- To improve an existing relationship and heal wounds affecting that relationship, bury in the backyard. If you live in an apartment or if burying in your backyard is not an option, acquire a healthy houseplant. Place the houseplant in your bedroom somewhere the plant can still receive adequate sunlight. Place the ritual remnants in the dirt of the houseplant. Care for this plant the same way you would care for your relationship.
- For healing the heart chakra, bury at the base of an old, well-established tree closest to your home. For best results, bury on your own property.
Old World Moon Phases
The Moon is of key importance for the Old World Witch. The Moon and its cycle (increase and decrease) impact the potency of rituals and their successes. The Moon amplifies rituals and works in harmony with the energies exerted by the Witch.
As Old World Witches, we utilize elemental forces for magick and mystical significance of the natural world and its fauna and flora: Esoteric knowledge. Lore of healing. Energetic resonance of herbs and roots. And, of course, the Moon.
The Old World Witch does not follow the exact terminology and specifications of modern astrologers and astronomers. We maintain the visual interpretation and energies of the Moon, as explained below.
When the Moon cannot be seen and is in the dark phase, it is referred to as the Dark Moon in Old World Witchcraft. Modern astronomers and astrologers call this darkness the New Moon because the cycle of the Moon is about to restart.
Old World Witches are not the only ones who follow this Dark Moon terminology. Several ancient cultures (such as Islam) define this period as the end of the month and the very first crescent of the Moon (Witch's New Moon) as the beginning of the month.
The Witch's Dark Moon is a night of stillness, contemplation, and banishment. The only types of rituals that should be done on the Dark Moon are banishment work or curses/hexes. The Dark Moon is also ideal for all kinds of divination and working with the departed.
The Moon is energetically at its lowest point and is more conducive to the mentioned rituals.
Witch's New Moon (first crescent)
The New Moon of the Old World Witch is called the Witch's New Moon. It is when the very first crescent or sliver of the Moon is visible. This is typically 2-3 nights after the Dark Moon.
With some variations, the Witch's New Moon rises in the daytime before noon and becomes visible in the day sky. It will be most visible at sunset and usually sets well before midnight. The Witch's New Moon is the same percentage all over the world - both in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. However, the tips of the Witch's New Moon point depend on the time, date, and location on Earth.
The Witch's New Moon is the ideal time to begin rituals that draw a life experience, physical possession, or situation to you. This can be for love, money, health, or personal development.
Rituals are best performed for 3-12 consecutive days. This is what leads to powerful, lasting, and most importantly, measurable results. Starting rituals three nights after the Dark Moon will give you exactly 12 days of rituals leading up to the Full Moon.
The Witch's New Moon is also the ideal time to begin a new venture, get married, apply for a job, or embark on a journey.
The same energetic attributes apply throughout the Waxing Moon, all the way up to the Full Moon.
The Full Moon is not only the most magickally potent and powerful time of the month, but it is also the most physically stimulating. As the Moon affects the ocean tides, so too does it affect our bodies. If you pay close attention to your body, you may have noticed that you may feel extra swollen or puffy on the mornings leading up to the full Moon and a couple of days thereafter. These are the days of maxi dresses, undereye concealer, and perhaps an inclination to wear fewer rings on your fingers.
Rituals are best performed for 3-12 consecutive days. This is what leads to powerful, lasting, and most importantly, measurable results. If you have been performing rituals leading up to the Full Moon, consider the night of the Full Moon the climax of your ritual.
The Full Moon signifies the cultivation of goals, the peak of a cycle, and emotional fulfillment. The Full Moon is best used to draw something into your life, such as love, financial prosperity, or self-development.
If, however, you are choosing not to perform any magick on the night of the Full Moon, simply sitting under the moon rays and energetically absorbing the magnetism will reawaken and revitalize your spirit.
Whether you're having a difficult time leaving an unsuitable relationship or are trying to eliminate negative self-talk, the Waning Moon is perfectly capable and willing to help phase out what is no longer needed or wanted.
In addition to removing negative influences from your life, this is also an appropriate time to cast revenge spells (curses).
The Waning Moon reminds us of things yet to be done and that time is slipping away. Anxiety is usually heightened during this time; therefore, self-care is critical.
