Grounding Chant


Hold a stone (such as hematite, smoky quartz, black tourmaline, or a river rock) in your hand and say this chant to help ground yourself prior to meditation or if you’re feeling nervous/uneasy/spacey.

To the ground, I am bound
see my roots reaching down,
feel the weight of the stone,
one with Earth, flesh and bone.

Wrath’s Juniper-Rosemary Cleansing Spell


This must be performed outside: it cleanses ritual space, releases healing energy into the surrounding area, and will provide personal cleansing for anyone exposed to the smoke.

  1. Burning juniper branches are the foundation for this formula.
  2. Pine branches may also be added as an optional ingredient for additional power.
  3. Lay fresh rosemary and lavender stalks on the burning branches.
  4. Fragrant resins such as frankincense, myrrh and/ or mastic may be added to the resulting bonfire.
