The ancient Egyptians used this powerful meditation to infuse their bodies with light. Each body part was dedicated to a divinity who directed the flow of life energy. This meditation may be recited upon waking while standing in an eastern window facing the sun, or before sleeping while lying in repose. After deep relaxation, begin naming the parts of your body that you dedicate to the Divine:
My head is the head of Seshat,
filling with thoughts of the power of the Divine, remembering my soul’s purpose.
My face is the face of Nefertum,
the golden child arising above chaos in beauty.
My eyes are the eyes of Hathor
shining in the darkness. I see love and joy in all things.
My ears are the ears of Anubis,
hearing the messages of the Divine.
My nose and longs are the nose and lungs of Shu,
receiving fresh breezes that fill me with creative life energy.
My throat is the throat of Meret,
it’s words are gentle songs.
My lips are the lips of Mut.
What touches them receives my blessing and thankfulness.
My teeth are the teeth of Serket,
strong and nurturing.
My neck is the neck of the Renenutet,
which supports me and connects my intellectual, emotional, and physical bodies.
My right (or dominant) hand is the hand of Khnum,
endlessly creative, giving life to things of beauty.
My left (or nondominant) hand is the hand of Anket,
receiving abundance from the bounty of the world.
My forearms are the foreamrs of Neith,
who weaves the destiny of one humankind.
My shoulders are those of Wadjet,
powerful, healing, and strong.
My chest and rib cage are those of Tefnut,
containing and protecting the delicate inner parts of myself.
My heart is the heart of Ma’at,
living in truth and keeping my life in balance.
My backbone is the backbone of Seth,
the foundation of the world.
My womb is the womb of Isis.
My phallus is the phallus of Osiris.
My reins are the reins of Satis,
receiving abundantly what is needed and eliminating what is not.
My belly and back are the belly and back of Sekhmet,
source of my spiritual fire and power.
My hips and legs are those of Nut,
carrying me safely through the day and night.
Wherever I need to be, there I find myself
My feet are the feet of Ptah,
a firm foundation for all of myself.
My fingers are those of Orion and Sirius,
sparkling and brilliant, creating anew, rebuilding, tearing down, heralding new life.
My bones are the bones of all the living gods and goddesses,
the living Uraei that protects and energizes and life to its spiritual source.
There is no member of my body that is not the member of a divine being. My body knows what it needs to give and to receive. Thoth and Isis shield my body wholly, filling it with energy and radiating love. I am shining as Ra and Raet day by day. These are the words of power that live forever. As I rise and walk on earth, so do I rise and walk always in the realm of heaven, under the nurturing care and the divine power of the gods and goddesses.

The following is of archaic Celtic origin. On the surface it is a triple recital of the thirteen months of the lunar year. Each word, however, is the name of one of the sacred trees, which in turn each have deep philosophical and magickal implications. Additionally, the thirteen, taken in sequence, tell in rich detail the life of the Sacred King and the archaic Legend of the Goddess.
All Witches should know or be strongly encouraged to study and research the hidden meanings behind this, working from the material provided by the poet Robert Graves (The White Goddess) .
Very powerful when done as a group, this chant can be done by the solitary practitioner as well. Provided here are the instructions for a group ritual, which can then be adjusted to suit an individual practice.
Prior to commencing the chant, everyone gathers in the circle, with the implications of the chant being described by whoever is leading the ritual. Pause in silence for a period of thirteen heartbeats while everyone meditates on what has been said, then the leader of the ritual intones the words of the chant loudly and in a rich voice. The chant is recited with all in the circle responding, three or nine times, as deemed appropriate. The chant is closed with the final invocation. If available, incense may be thrown into an incense brazier at the close of the chant. Everyone should remain silent for a while afterwords.
Here is the chant, which is repeated by all in the circle, slowly, and sounding each letter long and resonantly:
Repeat three or nine times as desired. I personally like the idea of repeating each individual name three times, and then repeating the entire sequence three times (which adds up to nine).
The leader of the circle closes with the following calling:

In the privacy of your bathroom, or if possible, in a large “kiddie pool” in your backyard under a full moon, draw a purification bath. Burn a white candle, or if outside, make a circle of white candles around the bath. Burn incense such as lavender or myrrh.
“By the power of my ancestors,
By the power of my descendants,
I let go of old troubles,
I let go of old life.
I am purified from fear,
I am purified from sorrow,
I am purified from my own mistakes.
I am purified like snow.

Today is a full moon – a perfect night for some Angel magic.
This spell can be said anytime. Works well by accentuating with a bell or any instrument that makes a high ringing sound… such as a wind chime. Ring the bell one time after each phrase. This can also be done in a group, where one person says a line, and then the line is repeated by the group, followed by the words “So shall it be!”
State your intention, and follow it up with each of the Angels listed below, and a simple affirmation of power. For example (I love my life. Ariel begins it. So shall it be!) Repeat until each angelic power has been invoked. This is a very powerful chanting invocation, you will feel the energy build as you do the spell.
- Ariel begins it.
- Baradiel guides it.
- The Chalkydri sing it.
- Devas manifest it.
- Elohim wills it.
- The Fravashi better it.
- Bagriel brings it.
- The Hafaza watch it.
- The Ischim blalance it.
- Jael guards it.
- Kadmiel births it.
- Lahabiel aids it.
- Michael raises it.
- Nebo ministers it.
- Ofaniel sees it.
- Patron Angels devote it.
- The Queen of Angels speaks it.
- Raphael inspires it.
- Sandalphon prays it.
- Thrones sanctify it.
- Uriel strengthens it.
- Vrevoil reveals it.
- Watchers protect it.
- Xathanael patrons it.
- Yahriel places the glory of the moon on it.
- Zodiac Angels seal it.
- And Spirit brings it through time and space.
So be it.
And so shall it be!
Seal in the air with the sign of the equal-armed cross using your dominant hand.

Light a green candle and sprinkle some mint around the base of it. (This can be mint leaves, mint essential oil, or even a handful of peppermints.)
Sit quietly and comfortably. Close your eyes. Relax. See yourself as the energy of prosperity. Be the energy of prosperity. Imagine that you are in the center of a radiating circle of prosperity.
Chant out loud or repeat in your mind:
Circle, circle, round, round
Round, round, circle, round.
Do this for however long is comfortable. Open your eyes, remind yourself that you are the energy of prosperity. Put out the candle or allow it to burn down.
Note: This spell is best performed when the moon is full, however it can be used any time you feel a need.
