Spells, rituals and the basics.

There are several aspects that must be looked at in order to effectively use the Round Table.  They consist of small ceremonies or spells to in order to cleanse and bless, plus protect, activate or shut down and to ground the work being done.

Basic personal banishing, cleansing, blessing and protecting work.

A Celtic Cross and An Arthurian Banishing Ritual of the Star.
These are adapted from a classic of ceremonial magick and can be used for cleansing, blessing and protecting;  they build up the energies of the Arthurians in your auric field.  By a slight shift of procedure, the Star can be used to cleanse, bless and protect a building, or it can be done twice daily, along with the middle pillar for personal growth and evolution.   The Celtic cross is adapted from R. J. Stewart.   (I highly recommend checking him out on his websites and getting his books, he is excellent).
A Celtic Cross.   To seal your aura for protection; it is the reverse of the Catholic form.  Before you do anything you need to imagine that you are growing larger and taller, you grow taller than the skyscrapers, then you grow past the moon, finally you see yourself growing clear to the center of the milky way and see a glowing white light above you.  This helps you leave your little ego behind.
Your hands at heart, the right hand moves to point above your head.
In the name of the Holy Mistletoe,
Your hand drops to point at your feet, and say
the Sacred Grove,
It moves back up to your heart, and over to your right shoulder
the Winter Holly,
It moves over to your left shoulder and say
And The Summer Oak  …
Move it downward, then back up and over , completing a clockwise circle saying
One balanced Being bound to Cosmos.   So mote it be.
An Arthurian Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram.  (Do the Celtic Cross before and after ALWAYS!)
Draw a five pointed star at arms length from you – in front, to your right, behind, to your left and return facing front (EAST).  The stars are electric blue and are connected with a white light ring/sphere.   You chant the sounds of Celtic tree runes for cleansing (hawthorn), transition to better energies (silver pine) and protection (oak and/or birch) in the center of each one.   You can use your fingers, a ritual blade or lit incense wand.   How you draw the star is like this … you salute and face East.  Point the height of your left thigh and draw a line up to the level of your third eye, then drop the line down to the right thigh; move up to the left shoulder level, move directly across to the right shoulder and drop back down to join with the starting point.  Then thrust both hands in and chant  OO-AH-THE …..  AY-EYE-LIME   ….   Doo-Eye-aRe  or BEE-EYETH.    You step back and turn 90 degrees to your right and draw the next pentagram  and chant again.  When you’ve returned to your starting point, stretch your arms out and lift your heart and spirit unto the Divine.  Ask for cleansing and blessing through this ritual.  Then create/invoke/energize the Arthurian Guardians in front, behind, to your right & left, plus above, below & all around you. … chant the following chant.
Before me  Taliesin, Securing the Staff of LIFE,
Behind me, The Lady of the Lake, Stirring the Cauldron of LOVE,
On my right hand,  King Arthur, Wielding the Sword of LIGHT,
On my left hand, Dame Ragnall,  Revealing of the Round Table of LAW,
Above me, Sir Galahad, Wearing the Crown of Enlightenment,
Below me, Sir Bors,
Initiate, shod in the shoes of Sangraal Service to all sentient beings
And Surrounding me, Dame Dindraine, Weaving the Girdle of Space/Truth.
For about me flame the Pentagrams,
and within my heart shines the six-rayed star.
If you are doing this twice daily as a personal practice, then do the Celtic Tree Middle Pillar here and close with the  Celtic cross.   The Middle Pillar can be used to bring good energies into a room also.
Repeat Celtic cross.
To prepare to cleanse, bless, empower and consecrate your  tools.
Once you have obtained the appropriate tool or tools, cleanse using each of the four elements, (unless something will stain or dissolve).  Thus your blade can be run through incense smoke, while saying a simple chant,  like the ones following; waved through a candle flame or small fire (don’t get burned), sprinkled with water and then earth. Add Reiki, place them in an empowered crystal grid, expose to full moon light, and use the set of special Fewsets shown elsewhere.  If you received your tools from an unknown source, please cleanse daily from the first sliver of the moon to the full moon (ideally you should cleanse from a full moon to a dark moon, then just let the item soak up good vibes during the waxing moon until you empower it) to make sure that there are no surprises and that they are completely attuned to you.
Remember that you can use these same and the following techniques to work on your round table of law.  You do not draw any fewsets in the corners of the table of law.
Elemental chants for tool preparation.
Powers of air, cleanse and bless this tool, to be fair.
Power of fire, cleanse and bless this tool, with your energies inspire.
Powers of sea, cleanse and bless this tool, to work for me.
Powers of earth, cleanse and bless this tool of worth.
Powers of three-fold Spirit, cleanse and bless this tool, of negativity, clear it.
Dedicate, empower and consecrate on a Full Moon with the ritual in the Ritual chapter.
Activating the Round Table before using.
After you have done a basic cleansing and blessing  over it as a general tool, then do a special empowerment.  If you haven’t already, create a runic few using your Gaian name and draw it in silver in the upper left hand corner.   Using your Round Table Oil, anoint in each corner, starting in the lower right-hand corner and ending in the upper right-hand corner and return to the lower again.  Using your hand or a wand, draw the activation few over the whole table and empower with your hands while intoning Ohhh-Bbbb-Ohhh.    Pick up your wand and say
“Merlin, Merlin, Terras‘ prophet wild, come charge this Table mild. …”  draw his runic few over it.
“Dame Brisen, Enchantress of Old, come empower this table bold. …”  draw her runic few over it.
“Dame Ragnall, Transformer Bright, charge this Table with highest light. …”  draw her runic few.
Now call the Arthurians, using your wand to touch each Chair at the table and trace each symbol found in their chair.  Their names will glow when they are present.
“Hail Sir ____, Knight so Bright, strengthen the work I do in Light.”
“Hail Dame ____,  Lady so Bright, strengthen the work I do in Light.” .
When done using it, draw the deactivation few over it and thank them all for their presence.
Grounding Spells.   These help bring the various energies down into the manifest plane.   Simple colored votive candles or votive cups with white candles are very useful to use.  You could use a Sangraal Circle with tapers if you like.  Draw the appropriate spirit elemental few on the matching color votive candle (or paint it on a colored glass votive and use white votive candles).  You light each votive as you say the spell, at the end of your work.

Simple #1:    Air inspires you,      Fire energizes you,       Water forms you      Earth manifests you
And Spirit is Source for you, being bound by Truth to Cosmos.

Simple #2:     AIR: Thou art Inspired by Life;        Fire: Energized by Light;
Water: Formed in Love;                 Earth: Manifested by Law;
Space: And Bound by Truth to Cosmos.

Elaborate.     This is …     Inspired by Life so I may Live,       Energized by Light so I may serve,
Formed in Love so I may share,            Manifested by Law so I may use
And Bound by Truth to Cosmos to bless all beings.

General Elemental Cleansing & Blessing.

1.   Preparation of Materials
Water.     Add three pinches of salt and three drops of cleansing blend with holy water.  Mix.   Draw/chant HUATHE and AILIM, thrice over the water.  Say while charging:  I cleanse and bless this water, child of earth and water, in the name of the Light.  Let this water find, transform  and remove all evil & negativity.  Only Light remains.  For the benefit of all.    Draw/chant:  BEITHE, UCHEDWYDD, KOAD and WUA and seal with the special sealing Ogham few rune.

Lit Incense or smudge stick.
Draw/chant HUATHE and AILIM.  Say while charging:   I cleanse and bless this burning incense, child of fire and air, in the name of the Light. Let this incense smoke find, transform  and remove all evil & negativity.  Only Light remains.  For the benefit of all.  Draw/chant:  BEITHE, UCHEDWYDD, KOAD & WUA and seal with the special sealing Ogham few rune.

2.   Actual Elemental Cleansing and Blessing:
Cleansing:
sprinkle the water, incense and bell, counterclockwise with the intention of cleansing.
Water.        By the power of Land & Sea, I cleanse this space and place elementally.
Incense.     By the power of Wind & Fire, I cleanse this space & place of evil & ire.
Bell.            By the power of the Bells’ clear sound, negativity is no longer found.
Blessing.
Sprinkle the water and incense, clockwise to bless;  the same for the bell.
Water.        By the power of Land & Sea, I bless this space & place elementally.
Incense.     By the power of Fire & Air, I bless this space & place to make it fair.
Bell.            By the power of the bells’ clear sound, The Highest and Best, now is found.

A Tree Sealing Ritual (inspired by Donald Michael Kraig).

You need red and white candles, your wand and woody scented incense.  When you are ready to seal your area, you need to first bless the candles saying:  Behold, arising out of the Illiaster are the twins of force (white)   and form (red).   From these arise the Spirit Ogham fews.  Let us seal our sacred (or living) spaces, asking the Spirit Fews to aid us.  Return to their places.

Hold up the lit incense stick, saying,   I light this in honor of the LIGHT, the One;  whom we serve with all our heart, soul and body in order to benefit all sentient beings.  Return to its place.

Holding the wand, draw the Holy Mistletoe, above you and say (then chant the few thrice).      I seal the heights with  the Holy Mistletoe, Uchelwyth …

Holding the wand, draw the Sacred Grove, below you and say (chant the few thrice).      I seal the abyss with the Sacred Grove, Koad. …

Holding the wand, draw the Knowledgeable Beech, in the East, saying (the few thrice).      I seal the East, with the Knowledgeable Phagos, the Beech.…

Holding the wand, draw the Loving Ocean, in the West saying (the few thrice).
I seal the West, with the Loving MOR, the Ocean.…

Holding the wand, draw the Powerful OIR,  in the South, saying (the few thrice).
I seal the South, with the Powerful OIR, the St. Johns Wort …
Holding the wand, draw the Binding/Protective Uilleand, in the North, saying (the few thrice).      I seal the North, with the Binding and Protective Uilleand, the Honeysuckle …

Return to facing the east, hold arms up in blessing and say over the candles:
In this way, does the microcosm reflect the macrocosm and all is blest..
Fiat Lux! Fiat Artos! Fiat Draco!       This rite is ended.       So mote it be.
You can do the Celtic cross and Arthurian Star as a form of protection.  Just draw the pentagrams in the opposite way.  (See diagrams)

Quarterly Solar Warding:  “The Cosmosphere” .    The “Cosmosphere” is a term I coined back in the early nineties.  It refers to creating a three layer force shield around an establishment, being, object or site.   I have found it can even be used as a spirit trap/gate to another dimension if you intend it right.  I pieced it together from various sources.   In essence it is first a ring that encompasses and encloses a set sphere of time – sort of like a picture in that time is frozen within.  The next ring, found right inside the first one, is the ring that defines a set amount of contained space.  The final ring is snuggled between both the first and second rings.  This one integrates the other two along with bringing in activity and consciousness.    The best time to cast/create this is on the Solar Holy Days: Equinoxes and Solstices.   You renew it every Solar Holy Day.  The imagery is like a spherical three layer Star Trekian force shield, composed of interlacing white, midnight blue and red spheres of Light.   You need to know the cardinal points in the area or place you’re going to create it.  According to what I’ve been taught, each cardinal point has a spiritual force and element.  I am using the standard wesoteric associations here, but there are others that can be used.

You first cast “The Flowing Ring of Time”  Facing East, you point your wand, sword, crystal, fingers, whatever you are using,and turn clockwise, stopping at each point, drawing the few and affirming the spiritual force found there.  Everything will be white.  While you’re moving, you will be slowly saying the following:  “LIFE (the Beech) flows into LIGHT (the St. Johns Wort), which flows into LOVE (the Ocean), then flows into LAW (the Honeysuckle)  and returns to LIFE (the Beech).  May the Flowing Ring of Time protect this space & place and all within, from all forms of negativity, intrusion & evil, AND from unwanted &/or uninvited beings living in the various realms of Time.   May the protection run from this (date) to (the next holy day)” .

Next cast “The Stable Ring of Space”  Facing South, pointing above you, draw a midnight blue or indigo circle.  Start overhead while facing south, to underneath you at the north and back above you, while you draw each few, in indigo, and affirming the spiritual force found there.  Meanwhile say:   TRANSCENDENCE (the mistletoe) flows down into LIGHT (the St. Johns Wort), which flows into IMMANENT MANIFESTATION (the Sacred Grove) which reaches back up to LAW (the Honeysuckle)  then returns to TRANSCENDENCE (the mistletoe).  May the Stable Ring of Space protect this space and place and all within from all forms of negativity, intrusion & evil and from unwanted &/or uninvited beings living in the realms of space.  May the protection run from this (date) to (the next holy day)”

Finally you cast “Cosmic Ring of Consciousness”  It is similar to Space, but you face East, again starting overhead, drawing each few, and see a red sphere, while you say:  TRANSCENDENCE (the mistletoe) flows into LIFE (the Beech)  which manifests as IMMANENT MATTER (the Sacred Grove) , which in turn reaches back up to LOVE (the Ocean),  and returns to TRANSCENDENCE (the mistletoe) . May the Cosmic Ring of Consciousness/Matter protect this space & place and all within, energetically & materially,  from all forms of negativity, intrusion & evil AND from all uninvited &/or unwanted beings living in the cosmic & material realms.  May the protection run from this (date) to (the next holy day)”

Imagine each of them integrating while still being able to act independently.  End with:
May the Three work as One, yet independently, from today  (time on this Holy day)  to  (the next Holy Day.)   FIAT LUX!   FIAT ARTOS!  FIAT DRACO!

Simple Tree Ritual Structure
When.    At the chosen day and hour.
Cast a protective, focusing circle.   Draw the circle using a blade (the wand calls the elements).    I cast this circle to be a sacred space where the Light as Power may manifest  so we may work together to benefit sentient beings.    Here is the boundary of the circle.   This circle is cast and consecrated to The Light  and in its service.  See the circle become a star trekian force shield which is impenetrable by outside, chaotic or disruptive forces.   Return to the altar and put the tool down.    Anoint yourself.    I am consecrated by the Light within this circle.     If you want to get elaborate, cast a Cosmosphere (see the chapter on cleansing, blessing and protecting).  Next, starting at the east (move clockwise), at each direction bring in positive energies.  Draw the Ogham few first, then say the following invocation.

PHAGOS ….Be here, Powers of  LIFE, the Beech, Patterning & Air.
OIR … Be here Powers of LIGHT, St Johns Wort, Energizing & Fire.
MOR … Be here Powers of LOVE, the Oceans, Forming & Water.
UILLEAND …. Be here Powers of LAW, the Honeysuckle, Manifest Action & Earth.
C.   WUA … Be here Powers of TRUTH, The Morning Glory,  Space & Binding.

Stand in the center and let the energies stabilize.   If you have your own guides, call them now.   Declare  I stand outside of time and space yet at the center of all realities.  Hail to the Elements at the Quarters.   Master Merlin and The Holy Lady of Sovereignty of this my beloved land, Spiritual Forces of Light, Tree Spirits, and the elements; I call Thee all to guide, guard, protect and bless this working.  Aid me  to be the most effective so as to serve all sentient beings.   Oh Beings Most High, bless this, my working of  (name your work).

Offer a libation.
Do your work.
Do a  yes/no divination to determine the status & release energies.
CLOSING DOWN.
Hold the knife in salute,  Love is the Law and Love is the bond.  I am a fluid part of something greater and seek to bring benefit to all sentient beings.  The circle is cleared

Thank Divinity.   I give thanks to Master Merlin and The Holy Lady of Sovereignty, the Spiritual Forces of Light and Elements for guiding, guarding, directing  and blessing this work.  May this work Benefit all sentient beings and may I serve the LIGHT always.  So mote it be.

Thanking the “Quarters”.  Hail and Farewell Mighty (..name..), Thank you for your presence and participation.   Be blest as you return to your   (.. elemental.. ) realm.  May there  be  peace between us, now and forever.    So must it be.

Release the actual circle using the same tool you drew it with.  Go counterclockwise.  The circle is open but not broken, merry meet and merry part and merry meet again.  This ceremony is ended, the circle is cleared and released.  Our work has been released to bless all beings.   I dedicate any merit raised here, to the benefit of all sentient beings. So mote it be.

Record the experience.

The Wells of Wisdom Ritual.
General notes: This is a ritual of inspiration.   This is best when you incorporate the following “The Basic Arthurian visualization” and “Guided Visualization to The Valley of the Sacred Wells of Wisdom” as part of the ceremony.  All should, in a slight trance, participate in the ritual.   A hypnotherapist or hypnotist, doing the guided visualization adds greatly to this ritual.  The Basic Arthurian visualization, in chapter five, starts the process, the actual visualization is separate.  This ritual can be adapted to make this a large ritual with many people participating.  Once you have balanced these wisdoms inside you, you can undergo this ritual to receive just one or two special draughts of wisdom for special purposes.

If you are doing this for the first time and you are the leader or facilitator, you may want to buy enough glass goblets that each person is allowed to keep their chalice to be used for this only and other sacred work as a gift to them in their spiritual work.

The needs here are simple.   The altar is draped in a midnight blue, a deep brown or a night sky star pattern cloth.  You need to have a copy of Holst’s THE PLANETS music available as you will play each piece during each wells’ presentation.   Celtic harp music can fill in the gaps.   Simple white robes are nice to wear and you may need to have pillows for the guided visualization part first.    The altar needs eight containers of special fluids and both a red and a white jar candle.   A solitary person needs eight clear goblets of the waters; a group needs eight clear containers of the same fluids and each person would need to have their chalice or cauldron available to receive the waters to drink from.  The containers are laid out, from left to right, following the planets in our solar system, as shown in the picture.   I’m not yet able to find organic food colors, but you can use organic flavorings or make your own herbal extracts.   Here is the “waters”  information.   The last container should have clear, pure spring water with Bach rescue remedy flower essence to allow everything to integrate and be grounded.
The Sun, guarded by Sir Galahad, is a yellow color and tastes of saffron.
Mercury, watched by Taliesin, is an orange color and tastes of nutmeg.
Venus, watched by Queen Guinevere, is a green color and tastes of rose.
The Moon, watched by Nimue, the Lady of the Lake, is purple and tastes of almond.
Mars, guarded by Sir Lancelot, is red and tastes of ginger.
Jupiter, guarded by King Arthur, is blue and tastes of clove.
Saturn, watched by Dame Ragnall, is indigo and tastes of myrrh.

You may want the full altar set up beforehand in order to create a sacred space, then set up the ritual altar on a separate table.   Perform the Tree Ritual until you declare your intentions.  LIFE, LIGHT, LOVE, LAW, TRANSCENDENCE, IMMANENCE AND TRUTH in perfect balance.  All are bound to COSMOS.   I stand in a place and space that is outside of time and space yet is the center of all realities.  I come to serve the One, my Masters  and to grow in my beloved Art.  Masters, Spiritual Forces, Arthurians,  elemental Dragons, and the elements;  but  especially Master Merlin & The Holy Lady of Sovereignty of this, my beloved land, I call Thee all to guide, guard, protect and bless this working.  Aid me  to be the most effective so as to serve all sentient beings.   Oh Beings Most High, bless this,  our Journey to the Realm of the Sacred Land of the Wells of Wisdom as we seek healing, knowledge, wisdom, challenge and blessing.  Thank you.

Now do the visualization until you have all reached the Sacred Land of the Wells of Wisdom, then you can bring them out of trance, to a point and perform the following ritual.   The Lady of Sovereignty  is the guide for this ritual.

“Hail and welmeet.  I am The Lady of Sovereignty of this beloved land, Do you come to partake of the waters from our Sacred Wells?  Know you that if you do, you must accept the challenges before the draughts are given.  If you agree, then come land taste from the Wells of Wisdom.”

“First we come to Sir Galahads well – he who forsook all to achieve the Holy Grail, which is our Source of Life and all blessing.   Are you willing to forsake all that distracts you from your goals so that you may excel and be responsible for your own Light in the world? … (a small pause )… If you so choose, then come drink of the waters of Galahads’ well and receive his Light.”  Each partakes of the waters and is silent.

“Next we come to Taliesin Radiant Brow’s well.  He is our keeper of our histories, legends and stories of knowledge and power. If you approach him with deception of any kind in your heart, he will deceive you.  But if you approach him with sincerity, compassion and a desire to learn, he will instruct you according to your desires.. … (a small pause )…  so, if you see and acknowledge all your hidden purposes while aspiring higher, come drink from his well and receive his blessing. ”   Each partakes and is silent.

“Next we travel to Guineveres’ well.  Her energies are of the Heart and Soul of Gaia.  But beware, unrestrained or improperly channeled passions or emotions cause more harm than good to all beings, including yourself. Yet without these energies, Life and the Mother suffer.  Are you willing to see, restrain and properly channel your passions and emotions to the benefit of all …(a small pause )…   If so, then come enjoy from her well. ”  Each partakes and is silent.

“Next we come to The Lady of the Lakes’ well, she, who is Mistress of Magic and The Mysteries.  But without compassion and grounding, her gifts could be misused, misunderstood or her wisdom flows away.  Are you willing to train in compassion, and the Gaian Arts in order to help Gaia and her children?  …( a small pause )…  Then come enjoy from her well and receive her gifts and blessings. ”

Each partakes and is silent.
“Many of you have a warriors spirit and enjoy the thrill of battle.  Some choose to fight for worthy causes without lifting a sword.  But some like to fight just for the fun of it.  Do you dare drink of Sir Lancelot’s well?  To temper the fighting spirit with discipline and to display appropriate actions for all circumstances.  ..( a small pause )…  If so, Sir Lancelot beckons, come join him and drink from his well.”  Each partakes and is silent.

“Some of us feel we have no control over our lives, yet others live like Kings.   Do you feel powerless or do you lord it over others?   Wisdom, compassion and power must all be balanced for your own and the benefit of others.  King Arthur calls to come drink of his benevolent wisdom. ..( a small pause )…  If you wish to not only be ruler of your own life but to be a benefit to others, then come and drink deeply.”  Each partakes and is silent.

“We all have karma that we must deal with, and darkness that we fear.  If you have the courage and want to move past fear, into the dark and on to the other side, then come drink of Dame Ragnall’s well.  Of all of us here, she is the most powerful, despite her foreboding appearance, yet her wisdom is the best of all.  ..( a small pause )…  If you are willing to work with her and transform your own shadow, then all of our wisdoms will be brighter for you.    Come then and drink.“   Each partakes and is silent.

“Now that you have tasted of the wells of wisdom, drink this pure spring water to aid in your integration and manifestation.”   Each partakes and is silent.

“Now it is time for you to return to your normal reality, but you will bring our wisdom and compassion with you.   Turn to The Merlin and let him guide you back to the gateway and then to Barinthus and the barge to go home.   If you treat us and yourself with respect, we will always be here when you need guidance.    Go and serve the Light and bless the Mother as she needs your help!”

Now return to the guided visualization while affirming that karma has been released and wisdom, compassion, skills and knowledge have increased.   Bring all out of the hypnotic state, return to the simple ritual structure to close down.  You can spend some time recording and discussing the trip but then move to something mundane so it can integrate.

The Round Table Ritual.    (Also The Self-Dedication ritual.)
General notes: This is a another ritual of inspiration that combines ritual with a guided visualization so you are in a slight trance the whole time.   Here you can undergo an initiation, request a Quest to go on or ask for advise from the Arthurians.   An adapted version of this is used for the self-dedication to the Gaian path.   If after a year and a day, you decide this is the way for you, adapt the Dedication ritual to become a Self-Initiation ceremony.

The needs are basic.   The altar is draped in a midnight blue, a deep brown or a night sky star pattern cloth.  The altar can be very simple, with just the red and white jar candles and the Round Table in the center with a white frosted votive cup on it.   You will want Celtic or Arthurian incense burning, your staff and anointing oil.   The music should be Celtic instrumental music.   Simple, hooded, white robes are nice but if other garb appeals, go with it.   You may want to tape the induction and visualization so that everyone can participate.

If you are doing the self-dedication, you need a special ring and necklace to be used only for Gaian work.  You need to write your Gaian name in fewscript on the back of the necklace.   You will need a grail with drinkable spring water in it.   You may want to include a sword which is okay. You need another white jar candle with the following runic fewsets, in gold or silver ink on it: your chosen Gaian name, consecration, the symbol of the Pendragon, The Merlin, Dame Brisen and Dame Ragnall.  If you have a special Arthurian that you resonate with, create a runic fewset and add it to the jar.  This should be on your regular altar after the dedication until it burns out.  If possible, you can clean it out and place a new white candle in it and re-dedicate yourself yearly on your Gaian birthday.   For the self-dedication you need to take a special ritual bath before the ritual.  See Chapter V on the details.

You may want the full altar set up beforehand in order to create a sacred space, then set up the ritual altar on a separate table.   You will do the Tree Ritual until you are declaring your intentions.

General Declarations: LIFE, LIGHT, LOVE, LAW, TRANSCENDENCE, IMMANENCE AND TRUTH in perfect balance.  All are bound to COSMOS.   I stand in a place and space that is outside of time and space yet is the center of all realities.  I come to serve the One, my Masters  and to grow in my beloved Art.  Masters, Spiritual Forces, Arthurians,  elemental Dragons, and the elements;  but  especially Master Merlin & The Holy Lady of Sovereignty of this, my beloved land, I call Thee all to guide, guard, protect and bless this working.  Aid me  to be the most effective so as to serve all sentient beings.   Oh Beings Most High, bless this,  our Journeying to the Realm of the Sacred Grove and the Round Table  as we seek knowledge, wisdom, challenge and blessing.  Thank you.
Offer a libation if you wish, otherwise share it at the end.

OR: Self-Dedication Declaration: LIFE, LIGHT, LOVE, LAW, TRANSCENDENCE, IMMANENCE and TRUTH in perfect balance.  All are bound to COSMOS.   I stand in a place and space that is outside of time and space yet is the center of all realities.  Tonight, I come to dedicate myself to the Gaian Path, at present as expressed by the Dragons Graal tradition. Masters, Spiritual Forces, Arthurians,  elemental Dragons, and the elements;  but  especially Master Merlin & The Holy Lady of Sovereignty of this, my beloved land, I call Thee all to guide, guard, protect and bless my self-dedication.
I seek to live in service to all sentient beings, and to live in accordance with the Gaian Code of Camelot.  I seek self-mastery and to manifest compassion and wisdom so that I know when to act and when not to.  I seek to be a blessing to all of Gaia and her children.  I seek to walk the middle way.  Master Merlin, Holy Lady of Sovereignty, Lords of Light, Dames of the Mothers Holy Darkness, Masters, Spiritual Forces and Dragons  of the Light, Arthurians, Trees, elemental Dragons, and the elements, please bless me.    Thank you.  You can offer a libation if you wish.

Either way, now do the visualization process until it is complete.   At the end of the Self-Dedication process you will need to put on your ring and necklace.  Then you will drink the fluid which has been blessed.    Finish the general ritual then.

Solstice Count Down.   Four weeks before Solstice, Set everything out.  Set up the shrine with the four tapers.  Hide the Red Solar candle in a Black cloth nearby but out of view.  Have a Black candle in the center at the start.
*First light the black candle saying     Behold the darkness, where is the Light?
Now light the circle black candle and repeat     Behold the darkness, where is the Light?
*The following week move to the next candle
First light both black candles saying     Behold the darkness, where is the Light?
Now light the red candle and say  As the cardinal sings, the Light is coming.
*The third week move to the green candle
Redo the first two weeks ..light the green candle  As the evergreen lasts, the Light is coming.
*The Final week, before Yule, light the white candle …Repeat the first three weeks   Now light the white candle and say  As the snow falls,  the Light is coming.
*Yule, set out the simple red taper  Repeat the last four weeks before Yule light the simple red taper saying  THE LIGHT IS REBORN TODAY!
Now light the Solar Candle and say
I welcome you Holy Child of Light,  To honor you, this candle burns,
There is a place in here tonight,  To humbly serve, my heart still yearns.
So come, reside, in this, my home,  O Brilliant Child of Light
As the Solstice brings the newborn SUN,  Come stay here with me tonight
And after the Solstice comes to pass,  within my heart be born,
As Sol lights the daytime sky,  enlighten me this morn
For the benefit of all sentient beings I ask this …  So mote it be.
