Sacred space to me is a very important ritual to remember to do, in a perfect world once a month. I say this because life gets in the way of everything no matter what we do so just do the best ya can. It doesn’t make you a bad witch for forgetting to make sacred space, draw down the moon, or celebrate a sabbath. Make small witchy things part of your daily life to make everything empowered with your energy and will.
Sorry for the small rant but I hate it when people insist that you have to cast spells to be a Witch and so on…
Sacred space is the act of empowering a whole home, room, or area that you spend a lot of time in as a safe space free of negative energies that is protected by the elements. Personally I like to make sacred space in two rooms of my home the den where I chill a lot with my altar and our bedroom where I sleep mainly. The bedroom is so I’m better protected from psychic attacks.
So let’s start to make sacred space! What you will need: a representation of each element. Salt (earth), incense (air), a bowl with water (water), and a candle (fire) and yourself (spirit) chill music pleasant but optional.
We always start in the north corner of the room and hold the salt and say: (while sprinkling salt a bit around the room)
I cleanse, concentrate, and empower this sacred space with the element of ________. So mote it be!
Next east light incense for air, south light the candle for fire, and last west for water remember to sprinkle water around the edges of the room too. Saying the incantation for each element until you get to spirit. Go to the center of the sacred space raise your hands palms up and say,
In the name of the lord and lady our good father and great mother I cleanse, concentrate, and empower this space with the element of spirit!
So mote it be.
Here it would be proper also to invite your chosen pantheon God and Goddess or single divine if you only work with one into your sacred space to dwell and bless your work.
Envision light of a blue (protection) or a multitude of colors (many purposes) surrounding the barriers of your scared space and turn it into a shield around (as above, so below) it sealing the magick with an equal armed cross (magickal symbol to seal a spell). After you are done remember to dismiss and thank 8the elements and God and Goddess for working with you. This magick lasts about a month. I try to set this for a specific date each month or during the time of a New Moon 🌚 for change.
