Collect rainwater, ideally within a stone vessel.
Prepare yourself prior to preparing the water; bathe in Fiery Wall of Protection, Dragon’s Blood, or lots and lots of salt, while reciting psalms and/or sacred verses.
Prepare the water sky-clad (nude) or in clean ritual clothing. Where ritual clothing is not used, fresh, clean clothing, preferably white and made from natural fabrics is favored.
Ladle the collected rainwater into a glass or crystal bowl. Place the bowl of water between two white candles. Light incense first (frankincense, copal, benzoin, and/or white sage) and then the candles.
Pass the bowl of water through the incense smoke. Visualize why you’re preparing this water. Visualize the results this water will bring.
Return the bowl to its place between the candles and leave everything in place until the candles burn out. Bottle the water.
- Sea Salt
- Water (not bottled – tap water is fine)
- Cross or Crucifix
- Latin Prayers (see below )
Add your salt to the water – 2 parts water to 1 part salt. Place your cross beside your water. Now pray over your water using these prayers. Say them in Latin, the translation is provided so that you will know what you are actually saying..
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen
In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
OUR FATHER, Who art in heaven hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen.
AVE MARIA, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Domini nostri, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
HAIL, MARY, full of grace; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of our Lord, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
