Purification for Ritual
Begin by emptying your mind of mundane concerns and worries, then have a ritual bath. Light blue or white candles. Try to clear your mind while soaking in the water. Burn incense containing rosemary, frankincense, or cinnimon or perhaps annoint the candles with frankincense, mryhh or sandlewood oils. If the rite is to be held near water this may take the form of a quick swim. While having the ritual bath, imagine the water washing away the negativity of everyday life. Use the time to centre and calm yourself.
Once you have dressed in ritual garb, use a purification incense to smudge yourself. This reinforces the initial cleansing as well as making it plain to yourself that this is a special occasion. Getting in the right frame of mind is the most important part of ritual preparation.
