Dedicating An Animal Spirit

Hello and Welcome!

I’ve recently discovered a ritual that is both beautiful and magickal. If you are one that finds your pet to be special and powerful, then this is the spell for you. If you are also one who finds great purpose in worshiping deities, then this is the ritual for you.

This ritual is dedicating an animal to a specific Spirit. This will create a profound triangular relationship between human, spirit and animal. This ritual derives from indigenous Siberia, but with a twist.

THE SPELL

  1. Choose a specific animal to be dedicated to a specific deity. ( I will include a list of animals and the deities that are associated with them.)
  2. Purify the animal with juniper incense.
  3. Sprinkle it with wine.
  4. Decorate the animal with ribbons in colors associated with the specific Spirit.
  5. Offer the animal an infusion of 1 teaspoon of honey to 1-2 cups of water.
  6. The animal is returned home or to its flock. It is now never ridden, eaten, or worked. It is treated special and allowed to enjoy its life as a gesture of sacrificial devotion. This treatment may extend over the animal’s entire natural life or for a specific period of time. This must be specified during the initiation.

Imbolc Recipes

Get ready for Imbolc!

Traditionally, Imbolc can be celebrated either on the 1st of February, or on the 2nd. Some celebrate during both days; from sunset to sunset. Imbolc is one of the fire festivals, and is typically celebrated with candlelight. Lots and lots of candlelight! Ceremonies are created outside, in the cold winter chill, to usher in the Sun’s warmth into the soil of Earth. Homes are prepared for the coming of Spring. By means of spring cleaning, and cleansing.  Seeds are blessed. Either for the garden, or for growth spells. Purification rites, and cleansing baths are drawn. Kitchen magick is ablaze to enchant the heart and thaw the mind. By whatever which way to awaken the spirit, is perfect to do during these days!

If a festival shall ever arise, be sure to have proper refreshments! Such as this delicious spiced wine recipe!


Spiced Wine for Imbolc

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups pineapple juice; organic if possible
  • 1 cup orange juice; freshly squeezed is best
  • 1/4 cup (or to taste) raw, local honey
  • 9 whole cloves
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • Pinch of pure sea salt

Add all ingredients to a crock pot and heat on high for 2 hours, stirring once or twice.
Turn crock pot to low, remove lid, and wait for juice mixture to come to below 180 degrees.

Add a bottle of red wine, and allow to warm up.

Either drink warm, chilled, or room temp; all are good. Although, I happened to like it chilled.
If one plans to do a ceremony to honor the holiday, here is an incense and oil recipe.


Imbolc Incense

Measure by how much you want.

Crush ingredients in a mortar and pestle. And burn over charcoal.


Imbolc Oil


Now, if there are baking lovers out there, and wish to push the love of pie making into your craft and holiday, here is a deliciously simple blackberry pie recipe! And if you wish, can even dedicate it to the Goddess Brighid, who is a popular Goddess for this holiday.

Brighid’s Blackberry Pie

  • 1 (15 ounce) package pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
  • 4 cups of fresh blackberries
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/5 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a 9 inch deep dish pie pan with one of the crusts. If you wish to dedicate this pie to the holiday, carve a symbol on the bottom of the pie crust with a tooth pick.

In a bowl, mix the sugar, flour, and salt together. Sprinkle over blackberries in a larger bowl, and toss to coat. Pour into the pie crust. Dot with butter. Place the other pie crust over and secure the ridges. Slice a design over the top of the pie crust to vent steam.

Place in the oven for 1 hour, or until crust begin to brown. Let cool to room temperature before serving to allow the filing to set.

Blessed Be, and have a beautiful Imbolc days.
