Set an empty cauldron or goblet on your altar between two lit white candles. Burn a good protection or blessing incense. Sit or stand before the altar. Breathe slowly and evenly until you are calm and centered. Take the cauldron or goblet in both hands; hold high over the altar in salute to the gods. Lower to chest level and slowly breathe into the cauldron, silently naming each habit, person or experience you wish removed from your life.
When finished, turn the cauldron or goblet upside down on the altar, saying:
“The contents of this vessel I give to thee, Great Ones. Exchange these experiences for better.”
Place an offering of herbs and milk outside. Or burn herbs in your censer. This is best done during the Waning Moon.
