Prepare yourself by filling the bathtub with warm water. Add a couple of tablespoons of salt and a few drops of fragrant oil, for example, sandalwood. While you bathe you prepare for the coming ritual. Open your mind to higher levels of consciousness, cleanse your mind at the same time as you cleanse your body.

After the bath, you dry off and prepare for the journey. Go to a place outdoors where you feel safe, where you won’t be disturbed and where the Earth’s and element’s powers are obvious. Bring a small bottle of strongly fragrant oil.

When you arrive, take off your shoes and sit in silence for a little while to calm yourself and free your mind from disturbing thoughts. Open yourself to the natural energies around you. When you’re calm, get up and turn around on one foot to look for the ideal spot. When you’ve found it, sit, kneel or lay down on your back, put the oil next to you. Feel the energies around you, address the Goddess and God with these words, or your own:

‘O Mother Goddess
O Father God
Answer to all mysteries and yet unanswered mysteries;
In this place of power, I open myself to your essence.
In this place and at this time I am changed;
From now on I walk the Wiccan path.
I now dedicate myself to you, Mother Goddess and Father God.’

(Rest a while, quiet and calm, before you continue.)

‘I breathe your energies into my body, blending,
Mixing them with mine,
so that I can see the divine in nature,
nature in the divine,
and divinity in myself and everything else.
O Great Goddess,
O Great God,
Make me one with your essence
Make me one with your essence
Make me one with your essence’

After the invocation, wet a finger in the oil and draw these two symbols somewhere on your body:

While you do this, visualize these symbols sinking into your flesh, glowing as they enter your body and then dispersing into millions of tiny points of light. Thank the Goddess and the God for their attention then sit and meditate before leaving the place of dedication.
