Cleansing Ritual Space

Hold athame. Move to the center of the ritual space. Caste an earth banishing pentacle to the center of the space.

“I exorcise this place, that nothing malignant be found herein. Let it be free of all evil and be cleansed and purified. In the names of Freyr and Freyja I cast forth all spirits both seen and unseen from this place.”

Put down athame in altar. Take up the broom.

“As I sweep ‘cross this ground
let no evil here be found.
As I walk the spiral path,
let all evil flee my wrath.
As this broom sweeps round this place,
let it now be sacred space.”

Use the broom to ritually sweep the energies clear of the ritual space. Once all the space is swept clear:

“Freyr and Freyja hear my plea,
that this place from all evil shall be free.
Make of it thy sacred home,
blessed in every leaf and stone.
In all thy names I call to thee,
As I will, so mote it be!”

Now set up the ritual space for the ritual. Be sure to make sure all needed items are preset. Be sure to get ready in any ways needed. Make sure any needed candles are there. Be sure any needed incense is there. Put the cauldron in the center of the circle space if that is needed for the ritual.

Do the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Hammer, without the rune-ring.

Stand before the altar. Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and center your thoughts on the upcoming ritual and the reason behind it. Ring the bell once and say:

“This ritual has begun.”

Lighting Of The Candles

Light the Presence Candle (a white taper candle).

“I light this Candle (lights Presence Lamp)
in the name of that ancient presence,
which is, was, and ever shall be
male, female, all-knowing, all-powerful
and present everywhere.

And in the names of the four Mighty Ones,
the rulers of the elements,
may power and blessing descend
in this hour upon this place
and those gathered here.”

Light the Goddess and God candles, the altar red fire candle, the incense charcoal (if being used), and the four quarter candles from the Presence Lamp.

Light all other candles, minus any spell candles.

Light all deity tea-lights or deity candles.

Blessing of the Water

Place water bowl on pentacle.

“I exorcise thee, O Creature of Water, that thou cast out from thee all the impurity and uncleanliness of the world of phantasm. In the names of Freyr and Freyja.”

Pick up water bowl with both hand and hold it in front of you while visualizing your energy extending to purify the water.

Blessing of the Salt

Place salt bowl on pentacle.

“Blessings be upon thee, O Creature of Salt; let all malignity and hindrance be cast forth from thee, and let all good enter within. Wherefore do I bless and consecrate thee, that thou mayest aid me. In the names of Freyr and Freyja.”

Pick up salt bowl with both hand and hold it in front of you while visualizing your energy extending to purify the salt.

Put water bowl on pentacle. Pour all salt into the water.

Put the water bowl to the side.

Casting the Circle

Hold athame and move to northern part of circle.

“I conjure thee, O Circle of Power, that thou beest a boundary between the world of men and the realms of the Mighty Ones; a meeting place of love and joy and truth; a shield against all wickedness and evil; a rampart and protection that shall preserve and contain the power that I raise within thee. Wherefore do I bless thee, and consecrate thee, in the names of Freyr and Freyja.”

From northern edge of the ritual area, holding your dagger in your power hand. Visualize a blue-white flame issuing from the tip of the dagger. Point it at the floor in the East. Walk clockwise or deosil around the circle three times, drawing the circle mark in the air as you go. Be sure to overlap the ends in the North as you finish.

Take hold of the water bowl. Move to the north of the circle.

“Salt and water, by casting thee,
let no spell, or unknown purpose be,
except in true court with me,
and as I will, so mote it be.”

Using the fingers of your power hand, lightly sprinkle the water around the edge of the circle, beginning and ending in the North.

Splash self with the water.

Replace the water bowl on the altar.

Light the incense using the Presence candle. Hold the incense. Move to the north of the circle.

“As this oily essence bear,
lends it’s great strength unto the air.
Attracting spirits of the light,
guardians, both day and night.
This charge is true in prophecy,
and as I will, so mote it be.”

Carry the burning incense around the circle, beginning and ending in the North. Return the incense to the altar.

Smudge self with the incense.

Hold the fire candle. Move to the north of the circle.

“Creature of Fire, this charge I give,
no evil in our presence lives.
No spooks, or phantoms may stay,
Not around this place, not night, not day,
This charge is true in prophecy,
and as I will, so mote it be.”

Carry the red altar fire candle around the circle, beginning and ending in the North. Return the candle to the altar.

Take hold of the water bowl. Sprinkle the salt water over the altar.

“Elementals, Spirits, Gods of Old,
this altar fresh you now behold.
You all agree that it’s bound to me.
In peace and true serenity,
this place is perfect harmony,
and as I will, so mote it be.”

Calling the Watchtowers

Ring bell.

With athame trace three circles and the make an air invoking pentagram.

“Lords of the Watchtowers of the East, Lords of the Air, I summon and call you to witness my rites and to guard this sacred Circle.”

Poke center of pentacle to activate the Watchtower gate. See in mind’s eye the pentacle light up.

With athame trace three circles and the make a fire invoking pentagram.

“Lords of the Watchtowers of the South, Lords of Fire, I summon and call you up to witness my rites and to guard this sacred Circle.”

Poke center of pentacle to activate the Watchtower gate. See in mind’s eye the pentacle light up.

With athame trace three circles and the make a water invoking pentagram.

“Lords of the Watchtowers of the West, Lords of Water, Lords of Death and Initiation, I summon and call you up to witness my rites and to guard this sacred Circle.”

Poke center of pentacle to activate the Watchtower gate. See in mind’s eye the pentacle light up.

With athame trace three circles and the make an Earth invoking pentagram.

“Lords of the Watchtowers of the North, Lords of the Earth, guardian of the Northern Portals, powerful God and gentle Goddess, I summon and call you to witness my rites and to guard this sacred Circle.”

Poke center of pentacle to activate the Watchtower gate. See in mind’s eye the pentacle light up.

Invoking the Ancient Ones

Face north. Make the Goddess position.

“Lovely Freyja, I call you into my Circle
to aid me in my rites tonight and
so I may caste magick to work my will.
Hail and welcome lovely Freyja!”

“Hail Freyja! Daughter of Njord. Sister of Freyr. Descendant of the Vanir. Possessor of Brisingamen. Od’s wife. Vanir-bride. Teacher of seidh. Love goddess. Gold-thirsty one. Queen of witches!

Hail Freyja!”

See Freyja standing before me naked, save only a short cloak of magickal hawk feathers and a jeweled necklace that radiates power. Her hair long and wild and golden red. Her pale blue eyes that are like the oceans. Her body most pleasing feminine shape. Her pale skin glows with life. She breath with longing. Her body moves with the grace of a cat. See her full round breasts and dark pink erect nipples. Gauze your eyes upon her sensuous curves. Her legs long and strong. See her feet, her toes curling into the soft earth. Enjoy the view of her perfectly round and toned bottom. Look between her thighs and see the dew glistening from her sex and feel the intense fires which burn there. Look upon her. Feast your eyes upon her beauty. Feel the excitement she invoke in me. Hear her sultry voice whisper to you to discover her innermost mysteries.

Take some deep breaths now and close your eyes and spend some time meditating on her form and energy.

“Freyja,

you charge that I seek pleasure and beauty bright,
Please lend your energies to my rite,
and take root as a guiding presence in my days and nights,
so I may learn your ways and be filled with your light.
Hail Freyja, lovely Goddess greatly desired within my sight!”

Face north. Make the God position.

“Mighty Freyr, I call you into my Circle
to aid me in my rites tonight and
so I may caste magick to work my will.
Hail and welcome mighty Freyr!”

“Hail Freyr! Son of Njord. Brother of Freyja. Husband of Gerd. Trusted friend of Skirnir. Descendant of the Vanir. Harvest god and wealth-giver. King of Alfheim. Blot-god of the Swedes. Possessor of Skidbladnir, and the boar known as Gullinbursti. Beli’s slayer. Enemy of Surtr. Wielder of the stag-horn. Fruitful one. Sure giver. Father of the Yngling line. Lord of the Volsi!

Hail Freyr!”

See Freyr standing before you. He is completely naked, and has a raging hardon. He is very handsome, and seems Earthy, but regal. He is a young man that seems filled with life and vitality. He glows with the power of prosperity and well-being. He seems very friendly and welcoming. He carries a stag horn. In his other hand he has a tiny model Viking ship, but there is some strange magick coming from the model, it feels like it could somehow become the size of a massive life size ship. He has medium long sandy blond hair, and a beard.

He smiles to his sister Freyja and embraces her, and then gives her a very sensual kiss on the lips. You can sense a strong sexual charge between them both. They both smile at one another and then smile back at me. Freyja winks at me. Freyr pats me on the shoulder in a friendly way, and then gives me a warm friendly hug. Freyja then leans in and embraces me and her lips meet mine in a very sexual intense kiss. Both of them now stand in the circle, ready to help with my ritual.

Take some deep breaths now and close your eyes and spend some time meditating on his form and energy.

“Freyr,
you charge that I live life with joy and energy bright.
Please lend your energies to my rite,
and take root as a guiding presence in my days and nights,
so I may learn your ways and be filled with your light.
Hail Freyr, powerful God of vitality and might!”

Self-Blessing

Anoint yourself with ritual oil in the places indicated while saying the following:

“Blessed be my feet that walk in the ways of the Goddess.
Blessed be my sex, creative power of life.
Blessed be my breasts formed in strength.
Blessed be my heart that I feel compassion for all who are living.
Blessed be my mouth that speaks the sacred names.
Blessed be my eyes that behold the beauty of Nature.”

Finally anoint yourself in the center of your forehead:

Blessed be my inner sight that I may receive a message within my soul.

Bless me, my Lady Freyja, that I may see
You truly, so I may see all things

of the world of spirit
In love and trust, so mote it be.”

Charge of the Goddess

Best is to listen to a recording of the charge while meditating on the form of the Goddess that has been invoked in the ritual, and feel her energy.

“Listen to the words of the Great Mother who was of old also called among men, Freyja, Artemis, Astarte, Diana, Saga, Idunn, Aphrodite, Skadi, Laxmi, Frigga, Parvati, Gerd, Cerridwen, Lalita, Eir, Arianrod, Sif, Kali, Saraswati, Hel, and by many other names.

Whenever ye have need of anything, once in a month, and better it be when the Moon be full, then ye shall assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of me, who am Queen of all Witcheries.

There shall ye assemble, ye who are fain to learn all sorcery, yet have not yet won its deepest secrets: to these will I teach things that are yet unknown.

And ye shall be free from slavery; and as a sign that ye are really free, ye shall be naked in your rites; and ye shall dance, sing, feast, make music and love, all in my praise.

For mine is the ecstasy of the spirit and mine also is joy on earth; for my Law is Love unto all Beings.

Keep pure your highest ideal; strive ever toward it; let naught stop you or turn you aside.

For mine is the secret door which opens upon the Land of Youth; and mine is the Cup of the Wine of Life, and the Cauldron of Cerridwen, which is the Holy Grail of Immortality.

I am the Gracious Goddess, who gives the gift of joy unto the heart. Upon earth, I give the knowledge of the spirit eternal; and beyond death, I give peace, and freedom, and reunion with those who have gone before. Nor do I demand sacrifice, for behold I am the Mother of All Living, and my love is poured out upon the earth.

Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess, she in the dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven; whose body encircleth the Universe; I, who am the beauty of the green earth, and the white Moon among the stars, and the mystery of the waters, and the heart’s desire, call unto thy soul. Arise and come unto me.

For I am the Soul of Nature, who giveth life to the universe; from me all things proceed, and unto me must all things return; and before my face, beloved of gods and mortals, thine inmost divine self shall be unfolded in the rapture of infinite joy.

Let my worship be within the heart that rejoiceth, for behold: all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. And therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honour and humility, mirth and reverence within you.

And thou who thinkest to seek for me, know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not, unless thou know this mystery: that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.

For behold, I have been with thee from the beginning; and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.”

Charge of the God

Get into God position and meditate on the Sun, feeling the energy of the Sun descending into you. Feel the energy of the God fill you.

“Listen to the words of the Great Father, who of old was called among men, Freyr, Osiris, Adonis, Zeus, Thor, Pan, Bragi, Cernunnos, Odin, Ganesh, Tyr, Shiva, Heimdall, Vishnu, Njord, Krishna, Baldr, Lugh, Mimir, Narayana, Ullr, Buddha, and by many other names.

I am the radiant King of the Heavens,
flooding the Earth with warmth and encouraging the hidden
seed of creation to burst forth into manifestation.

I lift my shining sword to light the lives of all beings
and daily pour forth my golden rays upon the Earth,
putting to flight the powers of darkness.

I am the spirit of all beasts wild and free.
I run with the stag and soar as a sacred falcon against
the shimmering sky.

The ancient woods and wild places emanate my powers,
the birds of the air sing of my sanctity.

I am the harvest, offering up grain and fruits beneath
the sickle of time so that all may be nourished.
For without planting there can be no harvest;
without winter there can be no spring.

I am the thousand named Son of creation.
Know that by all names I am the same.

The spirit of the horned stag in the wild, the endless harvest.
See in the yearly cycle of festivals my birth, death and
rebirth and know that such is the destiny of all creation..

I am the spark of life, the radiant Sun, the giver of peace and rest.
I send my rays of blessings to warm the hearts and strengthen the minds of all.”

Great Rite

If doing as symbolic: Set the chalice of wine on the pentacle. Take the athame and hold over the wine/juice, but without it touching the liquid inside.

If doing it as masturbation be touching self during this.

“Now I must reveal a great Mystery.

Assist me to erect the Ancient Altar, at which in days past all worshipped, the Great Altar of all things. For in the old times a woman was the Altar. Thus was the altar made and placed…

… and the sacred place was the point within the centre of the circle, as we of old times have been taught, that the point within the centre is the origin of all things. Therefore should we adore it.”

Kiss Priestess on her yoni, or picture kissing the Goddess there if doing the rite as a solitary.

“Therefore, whom we adore, we also invoke, by the power of the lifted lance. O circle of stars [kiss], whereof our Father is but the younger brother [kiss], Marvel beyond imagination, soul of infinite space, before whom time is ashamed, the mind bewildered and understanding dark, not unto thee may we attain unless thine image be of love. [Kiss]

Therefore, by seed and root, and stem and bud and leaf and flower and fruit do we invoke thee,

O, Queen of space, O dew of light, O continuous one of the Heavens [kiss]. Let it be ever thus, that men speak not of Thee as one, but as none, and let them not speak of thee at all, since thou art continuous, for thou art the point within the circle [kiss], which we adore [kiss], the fount of life without which we would not be” [kiss].

And in this way truly are erected the Holy Twin Pillars Boaz and Joachim [kisses breasts]. In beauty and strength were they erected, to the wonder and glory of all men.

O Secrets of secrets that art hidden in the being of all lives. Not thee do we adore, for that which adoreth is also thou. Thou art that and That am I” [kiss].

I am the flame that burns in every man, and in the core of every star [kiss].
I am Life and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the Knowledge of Death
[kiss].
I am alone, the Lord within ourselves whose name is Mystery of Mysteries
[kiss].

Altar of mysteries manifold,
The sacred Circle’s secret point
Thus do I sign thee as of old,
With kisses of my lips anoint
[kiss lips].

Open for me the secret way,
The pathway of intelligence,
Beyond the gates of night and day,
Beyond the bounds of time and sense.
Behold the mystery aright
The five true points of fellowship….”

If doing as symbolic: Lower athame into juice. If doing actual form, penetrate yoni of Priestess with lingham.

“Here where Lance and Grail unite,
And feet, and knees, and breast, and lip.

Encourage our hearts, Let thy Light crystallize itself in our blood, fulfilling us of Resurrection, for there is no part of us that is not of the Gods.”

The Making of Odhroerir

Hold up the bottle of mead:

“I now brew the holy mead of inspiration. Won by high Odin long ago!”

Chant into the bottle of mead:

“Odhroerir! Son! Bodhn!”

“Now I hallow this drink with staves of light!”

Chant and trace these runes over the bottle:

“Othala”

Othala

“Dagaz”

Dagaz

“Raidho”

Raidho

“Ansuz”

Ansuz

“Raidho”

Raidho

“Isa”

Isa

“Elhaz!”

Elhaz

All say:

“Hail Odhroerir!”

“Hail Freyja! Daughter of Njord. Sister of Freyr. Descendant of the Vanir. Possessor of Brisingamen. Od’s wife. Vanir-bride. Teacher of seidh. Love goddess. Gold-thirsty one. Queen of witches!”

“Hail also the unnamed disir of the Vanir, goddesses ancient and powerful. Please be here at this ritual of spring-time transformation.”

“The Norse divide the seasons into two, winter and summer. Now is a shifting of energies, the unstable energies of change. It isn’t winter anymore now, but it isn’t yet summer. This is a border state time, a time between a time.”

“This time of year is traditionally associated with witches since witches, and wizards too, are people that live with a focus on those border states, as their focus is effecting change and transformation.”

“Seidh is a form of magick related to Norse witchcraft. Seidh and many forms of magick are done by going into a trance state. Trance means altered state of conscious. People are often in trance state when in any border state, time between sleep and waking, meditation, magick rituals, intense pain states, near death state, etc.”

“Battle trance is a state in which one struggles with life or death through physical combat. During battle is a powerful time to do spells due to this. Fight or flight is an altered state of consciousness. Spiritual rituals too are a border event. Also physical workouts too can be border states.”

“Sex is a border state. Sex is one possible tool to use to do seidh and other forms of magick. Being sexually aroused is a border state. Freyja is always sexually aroused, thus she is a goddess always in the border state.”

“Border state is fire. This is why Freyja is associated with fire. Fire is the energy of change. Conventional consciousness state for mortal humans is ice. Ice is the energy that keeps things as they are. Life force energy is fire though, because living beings can and do constantly change their environment.”

“Gods and goddesses have more life force than mortal humans, thus they have more magick. Deities can cause more, bigger amounts of change. By becoming attuned and one with the natural cycle of the seasons we increase our own life-force and fire and become more powerful. When we do devotional rituals to gods and goddesses we slowly move our own energies closer to the divine and become progressively more than just human. This is how we add divinity to our soul. By becoming more divine like this we increase our abilities to effect magick and create positive change for ourselves and others.”

“The more we become divine the higher our personal consciousness frequency is and the more we are able to access a greater amount of knowledge, wisdom, awareness, and the stronger access we have to life force. This also causes our spiritual luck to improve. Rising one’s consciousness frequency is the key to making spiritual progress. By rising our consciousness frequency then we can become closer to the gods and goddesses as we are then like one of them.”

“Negativity, limited thinking, negative energy, bad energies, unhealthy food, unhealthy habits such as smoking, being around negative people and lack of faith in the gods/goddesses, all serve to drag down our energies and pull us away from the spiritual. Drinking in a way in which we don’t have any self control over is very destructive and pulls down our energies. Drinking alcohol is not bad, it actually is a strong part of the Heathen path, what is bad is drinking to an extreme and not being a responsible drinker. These things suck the spiritual life force out of us and reduce our fire. It is very important on the spiritual path to learn how to shield your energies against negativity and limit any interactions with negative people.”

“The greatest tool for keeping energies consistently at a more positive spiritual level is regular daily spiritual practices. Enlightenment is not something that happens once and then you are cured for the rest of your life, it is an ongoing quest, even after achieving some measure of spiritual success all that has been gained can be lost if efforts are not kept up to keep things going. Magick is a tool to use to transform the self so that you can stay more often in a higher enlightened consciousness state that is closer to the level of the gods and goddesses. By maintaining a higher state of consciousness and a greater level of awareness and personal power we attract the interest of the gods and goddesses. By building a devotional practice towards a patron deity, matched by working on yourself using magick for self transformation directed towards a greater and greater spiritual self awareness, we move ourselves closer to achieving final rest from incarnation in the physical world, and moving on to reside in the hall of our patron deity at the time of our death. Working on the self to the point that we are ready to join our patron after we cross over from this world of the living to the next world is the main point for any more advanced level Heathen.”

“Now is the time during these changing energies to look for opportunities to bring positive changes in our lives, a powerful time to effect improvements in our lives. Now with the increase in physical activity in the rhythm of nature, is a excellent time to focus on getting into better physical shape by doing a regular fitness routine, if we don’t already do so. It is a good time to look at ways we can work on improving our health, both mentally and physically. This time of year is a good time to consider getting books about helpful methods of self improvement. It is a good time to brush up on any spiritual or occult knowledge areas we may already possess and perhaps looking too at ways we can expand such areas of knowledge. All these things which involve self improvement are connected with transformation and is oriented towards the type of energies of witches and wizards and of this general time of year. We are moving away from the inward focused energies of winter to the outward flowing energies of summer. The energies are shifting outward now towards vitality and renewal.”

“At this time of year the sexual energies of nature are at their strongest point. Now is the time to enjoy any opportunities that are presented to express those sexual currents with others. Sex is a good way of celebrating the current natural cycle. It is a way to make offerings of joy and pleasure to the spirits of nature. Sexual expression is a way to honor all goddesses associated with this time of year, both hidden and known.”

“The Vanir are the Norse deities associated with the border time energies of the seasons, both with the spring when nature’s vitality increases, and in the fall when that which has grown is harvested. Vanic deities are strongly connected with the sexual currents of nature. Spring is the season for the goddesses and fall the season to enjoy the blessings of the Vanic gods. Spring is female, and fall male. Spring and fall are not seasons proper for the Norse, but times of transition between winter and summer. Freyja as goddess of sexuality and witchcraft is a goddess of the spring whose energies reflect this time of year. There are also hidden goddesses of the Vanir who help to bring forth the energies of this time of year of the cycle and we must honor them too.”

If there is any magick spells you wish to do for the purpose to better yourself in some way, now is a powerful time to do them. You may either do them at this point in the ritual or in a later ritual.

Light red candle.

Fill drinking horn with mead and hold filled horn up.

“Freyja please present to me opportunities to take part in the increased sexual energies of this current time of year. Also please oh lovely goddess show me any ways that I may improve myself, and help me with opportunities to do so. Please oh pretty goddess help me to flow with the changing energies of this time of year. You who are a helpful seidh-witch, and lover to all, help me to bend the life currents to my advantage. Thank you radiant Freyja.”

Drink some of the mead and pour out rest to offering bowl for Freyja.

Light white candle.

Fill drinking horn with mead and hold it up.

“Hidden spring-time goddesses of the Vanir may your energies be strong so that this season may be a wonderful one filled with positive vitality for all lifeforms. I thank you oh lovely hidden goddesses for all you do for us who take part in the seasons. Hail all hidden life-force goddesses of the Vanir!”

Drink some of the mead and pour out the rest into offering bowl for the hidden spring-time goddesses of the Vanir.

Be sure the pillar candle in the glass holder is in the cauldron.

“I now light the bonfire of the lust-fires of the union of the hidden Vanic God of Spring, and the hidden Vanic Goddess of Spring. I light this fire within the cauldron of the Goddess’s vagina to send these energies to the Goddess so she may use them to revitalize the energies of nature.”

Light the candle in the cauldron.

“May the flames of passion and sexual union between the God and Goddess be strong and bright. May the energies of nature be revitalized! This fire burns away the last remaining vestiges of the winter half of the year. The summer half of the year is upon us now!”

Jump over the candle in the cauldron.

“By jumping over this lust-fire, I revitalize my own energies, and step into the summer half of the year!”

Be sure the May-pole is set up in the middle of the ritual space.

“Now is a time to celebrate the newly arrived energies of summer, and to get in touch with all the joy that is to come during this brighter, warmer, half of the year.”

Play some festive Pagan May-day music, and dance around the May-pole to the music. Take some time to really enjoy the music. Do this for as long as you want. This is a time to party and enjoy the vital sexual life-force that is strong at this time.
