these purifications aren't intended to chase awaydemons or devils;they simply free us of some of this negativity While purifying yourself, remember to purify your thoughts as well. Prepare for the ritual. A Kahuna (an expert in the ancient Hawaiian system of magic, philosophy, religion, and applied technology") once told me that the moment you think about performing a ritual you are doing so. It is already taking place. Energies are moving, consciousness is shifting. During your ritual purification, know that you've already lit the candles, laid the circle, and invoked the Goddess and God. Don't think of the coming ritual, for it is already in progress. This may seem a bit confusing, but it is an excellent tool to train your awareness.

Purification of Space Outdoor ritual spaces rarely have to be purified. Indoor rituals, though, usually require it. Most living spaces accumulate "astral garbage," pockets of negativity and other energies that collect in human habitations. Since these energies can be disruptive, the area is ritually cleansed prior to actual workings. There are two specifics here: indoor and outdoor rituals. For in-home rites, if you're alone in the house, lock the door, take the phone off the hook, and close the curtains. You must be assured of absolute privacy and lack of interruptions during the ritual. If others are home, tell them you're not to be disturbed until further notice. If this presents a problem and a mate or your family won't give you any time to yourself, work your rituals late at night or early in the morning when others are asleep. Clean the floor physically. Sweep with a regular broom, vacuum, or mop. Once clean, it can be purified with the old Witch's tool, the magic broom.
