We cannot attest to the efficacy of this procedure nor has it been repeated since it was used during the course of the Ra contact. We have simply synthesized a set of instructions combining Ra’s words and Jim McCarty’s testimony. Each is free to test this in the laboratory of their own life experience.
If disharmony, negativity, or darker energies have transpired in a particular environment, garlic can be used—in conjunction with salt, and/or the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram, or by itself—to help cleanse the environment of residual negative astral entities and energies in order to return the area to a “neutral vibration.”
According to Ra, “no service-to-self astral form will accept coexistence with the cut garlic.”
- A knife to cut said garlic
- Whatever materials you need to hang the garlic, from either the ceiling, the wall, a shelf, your nose, etc.
Cut each clove of the garlic in half.
Hang the cut garlic in the area where the negative energy resides.
Ra says in #95.8 that, “the windows and the doorways are most appropriate,” but it can be hung anywhere negativity has been sensed.
Carla said that Jim hung the garlic like a kabob. Jim reports: “The garlic has a natural leaf on it like onions do. I just braided them together.”
3. Ritual words to bid farewell
Use the “appropriate words to bid farewell to those of the lower astral.”
Ra says: “The hanging of the cut garlic may be accompanied by the words: ‘We praise the One Creator for the gift of garlic and bless its ability to offer to those friends to whom we wish to bid farewell the arrow which points their way of egress.’”
4. Length of time
It seems this may vary depending on the location and the relative infection with negative entities and energies.
a) Ra suggests keeping the cut garlic hanging for 36 hours, according to #95.4.
b) They give a different length of time for a different dwelling discussed in #105.6, saying the cleansing was needed for “only three nights and two days. This dwelling is benign.”
c) And then in #105.6 they give a different length of time and periodicity for a specific are of their new house: “We suggest weekly cleansings of [the boathouse] with garlic, the cut onion, and the walking of a light-filled perimeter. The garlic and onion, renewed weekly, should remain permanently hung, suspended from string or wire between workings.”
5. Ritual words of blessing for the house
When completed, Ra suggests that you then “request of this living entity [the house] that it now be welcoming and absorbent for the vibrations of harmony, love, and thanksgiving which this group shall then, as the incarnational experience proceeds, offer to the domicile.”
Burn the garlic to ashes outdoors if at all possible. Safely, of course.
7. Ritual words of blessing at the burning
Ra: “As the garlic is burned you may say ‘We give thanks to the One Creator for the gift of spiritual cleanliness in our dwelling place and seal the departure of all those who have left by this exit by the consuming of this substance’.”
1. The funnel
Ra: “We suggest that the garlic be hung in the funnel so that the energies are drawn into the south small end of the funnel and traduced northward and away from the dwelling.”
In #95.15, Don describes the funnel as being oriented with the, “small end toward the house and the open end away from it, strung between two poles”. Ra confirms this arrangement.
2. Hanging the garlic
How to hang the garlic outdoors? Ra says: “The procedure of the hanging will be one for testing your ingenuity but there are several ways to suspend the substance and it is well to do so.”
And, “as to the hanging of the garlic, it must be able to be blown by the wind. […] We might suggest the stringing between two placed posts on either side of the funnel of the strung cloves.”
In #95.15, Don gives one workable way of creating this funnel through which the wind blows.
3. Ritual words of farewell
May accompany the hanging of the garlic outdoors. See Step 3 above.
4. Length of time
Ra does not indicate
5. Ritual words and burning
Repeats Steps 5–7 above. Adjusting the blessing for the natural environment instead of the house.
6. Improved efficacy
In #95.15, Ra notes that the efficacy of the cleansing may be improved by, “walking of the perimeter with the opened clove in hand, swinging the clove. No words need be said unless each wishes to silently or verbally speak those words given for garlic previously.”
After completing this ritual, we strongly encourage washing your hands before touching other objects, especially loved ones.
Thank you. The new room that we choose will of course be carefully cleaned and marred surfaces made well. We shall also use the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram prior to a working. Is there anything else that Ra could suggest? And I would also know if there is anything in particular that Ra might suggest with respect to the particular place that has been chosen for the new location.
I am Ra. We scan the recent memory configurations of the questioner. Firstly, there has been some less than harmonious interaction within this dwelling. The dynamics of this interaction were potent enough to attract a lesser thought-form. Therefore, we suggest the salting and ritual cleansing by blessed water of all windows and doorways which offer adit into the domicile or any out-buildings thereof.
Further, we suggest the hanging of the cut garlic clove in the portion of the room which has accommodated those whose enjoyment has turned into a darker emotion centering upon the area we find you call the wet bar, also the room intended for the sleeping which is found near the kitchen area. The appropriate words used to bid farewell to those of the lower astral shall be used in connection with the hanging of the garlic cloves for the period of approximately 36 of your hours. We believe that this is equivalent to two of your night periods and one of your lit periods. This should cleanse the house as you find it to the extent that it is neutral in its vibrations. We suggest that you then request of this living entity that it now be welcoming and absorbent for the vibrations of harmony, love, and thanksgiving which this group shall then, as the incarnational experience proceeds, offer to the domicile.
I assume you mean that we should put the salt on the outer doors only and not the inner doors of the house. Is that correct?
I am Ra. This is correct. We cannot express the nature of salt and water and garlic with clarity enough to inform you as to the efficacy with which salt absorbs vibrations which have been requested to move into salt when salt has been given water. We cannot express the full magical nature of your water, nor can we express the likeness and attractiveness of the garlic cut to lower astral forms. The attractiveness is negative and no service-to-self astral form will accept coexistence with the cut garlic.
Therefore, we offer these suggestions. We also request, carefully, that the broom be clean and that the garlic be burned. The virginity of the broom is most efficacious.
Let me see if I have the scenario correctly. I’ll repeat my version of it. We would hang garlic, fresh-cut garlic in the area of the wet bar and the area of the bedroom that is adjacent to the kitchen area. We would salt all window sills and all outer wall door sills and then sprinkle blessed water from our fingers on all of the salted areas. We would then say appropriate words to bid farewell to lower astrals. Those words I am not sure of. Would Ra comment on the scenario that I’ve just stated?
I am Ra. Your grasp of our suggestions is good. We note that the salt be poured in the straight line with no gaps. There are various ritual words of blessing and farewell to entities such as you are removing. We might suggest the following.
When the salt is laid you may repeat “We praise the One Creator which gave to salt the ability to enable those friends, to which we wish to bid farewell, to find a new home.”
As the water is sprinkled you may say “We give thanks to the One Creator for the gift of water. Over it the Creator moves Its hand and stirs Its will to be done.”
The hanging of the cut garlic may be accompanied by the words “We praise the One Creator for the gift of garlic and bless its ability to offer to those friends to whom we wish to bid farewell the arrow which points their way of egress.”
When the sweeping is done you may say “We praise the One Creator and give thanksgiving for the spiritual cleanliness of this dwelling place.”
As the garlic is burned you may say “We give thanks to the One Creator for the gift of spiritual cleanliness in our dwelling place and seal the departure of all those who have left by this exit by the consuming of this substance.”
Is any place more appropriate than another to hang the garlic in the rooms; for instance, over the windows or anything like that? I know it is supposed to be hung in the area of the bar but I meant in the bedroom. Is there any more appropriate place than another?
I am Ra. The windows and the doorways are most appropriate and, in addition, we suggest the salting and sprinkling of any door which may lead elsewhere than out of the dwelling in order to afford to the entities the understanding that they are not desired elsewhere within the dwelling.
Okay, I understand that the garlic is to be used at the bar area and in the bedroom that is close to the kitchen and has an exit onto the carport. If I am correct then, those are the only two places to use the garlic: the bar and that room with the exit to the carport. That’s correct, isn’t it?
I am Ra. This is correct.
Is there any other comment in closing this questioning area upon the new location that Ra could make other than the comments already made on the new location or any part of it?
I am Ra. We are gratified that this query was offered to us for there has been a concentration of negative thought patterns at a distance north to 10° of north, approximately 45 of what you call yards extending therefrom to all four directions in a rectangular but irregular shape.
We ask that the garlic be strung approximately 60-70 feet beyond the far verge of this area which is approximately 57 yards from the dwelling on a bearing north to 10° off north. We suggest that the garlic be hung in the funnel so that the energies are drawn into the south small end of the funnel and traduced northward and away from the dwelling. The procedure of the hanging will be one for testing your ingenuity but there are several ways to suspend the substance and it is well to do so.
I envision a cardboard funnel approximately three feet in length and then a smaller cardboard funnel of the same configuration inside that funnel, garlic placed between the two cardboard surfaces so the garlic is actually a funnel of garlic itself and then held in place by the two cardboard cones, the smaller end of the cone being toward the house, the open or larger end being away from the house.
I also would like to be sure that I accurately know the position that we’re talking about by taking a specific point on the house such as the front door, the door with the little roof extending over it at the front of the house, and taking a direction from that. I suspect the direction is up toward the road that leads out of the property, and an exact measurement from the front doorknob to the center of the area of negativity of which we speak [would be helpful]. Would Ra comment on what I have just said?
I am Ra. We were working from the other side of the dwelling. However, the exact distance is not important due to the generalized nature of the astral leavings. The heading would be approximately 10° east of north to 5° east of north. This is not a heading in which absolute fastidiousness needs be paramount. The yardage is approximately as given. As to the hanging of the garlic, it must be able to be blown by the wind. Therefore, the structure which was envisioned is less than optimal. We might suggest the stringing between two placed posts on either side of the funnel of the strung cloves.
In order to make this funnel of garlic cloves, would a wire framework such as chicken wire which has a small inch-square mesh or something like that shaped into a cone with the garlic attached to it all around it, and with the small end toward the house and the open end away from it, strung between two poles. Would that be appropriate or must the wind blow it more than that?
I am Ra. That is appropriate. You see in this case the center of the negativity is as described, but there will be a general cleansing of the dwelling and its acreage by this means. One action you might take in order to improve the efficacy of the cleansing of the environment is the walking of the perimeter with the opened clove in hand, swinging the clove. No words need be said unless each wishes to silently or verbally speak those words given for garlic previously.
The sequence of events that I am considering, which may be easily changed, is first the painting, then the cleaning, then the moving in of the furniture, then the salting and use of garlic. Is this sequence as good as any other sequence or would a different sequence be better for those events?
I am Ra. Any sequence which results in the cleansings is acceptable. It is to be noted that the thresholds are not to be crossed during the cleansing. Since such stricture upon use of the limen may affect your considerations we make note of this.
We planned to cleanse the property at [the] Lake Lanier location using the techniques prescribed by Ra in earlier sessions having to do with salt 36 hours, etc. I would like to know if this is sufficient or if there is any salient problem with respect to moving to that house that Ra could advise upon at this time, please.
I am Ra. The cleansing of the dwelling of which you speak need be only three nights and two days. This dwelling is benign. The techniques are acceptable. We find three areas in which the use of garlic as previously described would be beneficial. Firstly, the bunk bed room, below the top sleeping pallet. Secondly, the exterior of the dwelling facing the road and centering about the small rocks approximately two-thirds of the length of the dwelling from the driveway side.
Thirdly, there is the matter of the boathouse. We suggest weekly cleansings of that area with garlic, the cut onion, and the walking of a light-filled perimeter. The garlic and onion, renewed weekly, should remain permanently hung, suspended from string or wire between workings.
