MIDNIGHT CHANT FOR INCREASED POWER
Items: just some patience and to be outside at midnight
can be done before spells cast at midnight. This is a peaceful time,
and is conducive to magickal workings. Midnight is not, however, a time
for negative or evil rituals. It's best to perform this ritual outside,
even if the spell that will follow it will be done indoors. You can do
this before an opened window, if necessary. Go outside into the inky
void of night a few minutes before midnight. Stand with you legs
slightly apart. Raise your hands. Feel the soothing yet potent energies
of the night filtering into your consciousness, brushing against your
body, tugging at your hair. Take three deep breaths. Listen. Wait. Gaze
up at the darkened sky. If the moon or clouds are present, watch them.
Otherwise, stare at the stars. Calm yourself. Prepare yourself. Open
you consciousness to the living reality of the night. Let it enfold
you. Feel the embrace of its timeless energies; sense them transforming
you. Then say the following or similar words in a hushed, whispered
voice to bring the elemental powers of the night into you:
O stars whirling through the inky round;
O power hiding from the light;
O black curling on the darkened ground;
O secrets biding in the night;
O ebon treasures and the owl's sweet cry;
O haunting forces of the deep;
O misty measures of the circling sky;
O daunting courses that you keep:
Come to me with your magick power! Enfold me with your arcane might! Be here at this mystic hour!
your arms fall to your sides. Do not be afraid. The cool energies of
the Earth cannot and will not harm you. Willingly accept them. Drink in
the power that the night, the sky and the Earth have given you. Feel
that remarkable changes that have occured within you. Show your
appreciation to the elements by facing North and raising your hands in
honor of the Earth. Turn East to honor Air; South to honor Fire; and
West to honor Water. Next, lift your hands far above your head,
reaching into the night itself, then touch them lightly to the ground
before your feet. The time has come. The power of midnight vibrates
within you. Positive spells of all types may now be done
be performed at night & within the Moons view. Light a Large White
candle. Burn Sandalwood, Basalm & Pine. Sprinkle some Salt into a
Bowl of Water. Put the bowl before you & touch the bowl to each
part of your body, - Put bowl to the eyes & say - " Bless my eyes
that I might have clarity of vision. " To the mouth & say - " Bless
my mouth that I may speak the truth. " To the ears & say - " Bless
my ears that I may hear all that is spoken and not. " To the heart
& say - " Bless my heart that I may be filled with love. " To the
uterus & say - " Bless my womb that I may be in touch with my
creative energy that stems from the universe. " To the feet & say -
" Bless my feet that I may find and walk my own true path. " Fill
yourself with love & Extinguish candle when done. This Blessing
gives the body more connection with the Spirit & also helps prepare
you for channeling!
