Though we have conducted this ritual since its use in the Ra contact, we cannot attest to the efficacy of this procedure. 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, salt can be used—in conjunction with garlic, and/or the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram, or by itself—to help “cleanse” the environment of the residual negative energies and negative astral entities in order to return the area to a “neutral vibration.”
According to Ra: “salt absorbs vibrations which have been requested to move into salt when salt has been given water.” Further, those of negative vibration “within the dwelling might find coexistence with your group difficult.”
#95.8 …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.
- Salt. (Normal table salt is suitable.)
- Blessed holy water. (May be “blessed by intention” by yourself or by what our culture would call a holy person.)
- A virgin broom. (An adjective meaning new/unused of course. We’re not sure about those “like new” brooms advertised on Craigslist.)
Spread an unbroken line of salt on all entries and exits from the building, including windows. It doesn’t matter if it is the interior or exterior windowsill or doorsill. On both windowsills and doorsills ensure the salt creates a barrier from one side of the entrance to the other. As Ra says, “the salt be poured in the straight line with no gaps.” Leave one doorway un-salted for yourself to enter and exit.
As you spread the salt, repeat the words: “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.”
Note: If the salt is placed on an exterior windowsill, add Step 1.5 to this procedure: “Figure out how to explain this to the neighbors.”
Using your hands, sprinkle the holy water onto the salt and repeat these words: “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.” Ensure the salt is dampened by the holy water but not soaked.
Allow this to sit for 36–48 hours. Do not cross any salt barriers during this time. Enter/exit only through the un-salted doorway.
Using the virgin broom, sweep all salt from the windowsills and doorways into a paper bag that can be discarded, or a lined trash can if paper is unavailable. Repeat these words: “We praise the One Creator and give thanksgiving for the spiritual cleanliness of this dwelling place.”
Repeat steps 1–4 for the one doorway which was left uncleansed for entry and exit.
Note: If entry or exit is still needed through the remaining doorway being salted in Step 5, Ra says, “…the salt may be requested to act as seal and yet allow the passage of gentle spirits such as yourselves. We suggest that you speak to this substance and name each entity for which permission is needed in order to pass. Let no person pass without permission being asked of the salt.”
In other words, makes sure you ask the salt permission for each person that will cross its barrier. You can do this by stating something to the effect of:
“I am (state your name) and I come in the love and the light of the One Creator. I would like to ask of our cleansing salt that I and (names of others), be allowed to enter and exit through this doorway while the cleansing salt is working to clean our house of any negative or questionable energies. I thank you for your protection and your permission.”
¶Blessing the Water
If you will be blessing the water, we feel the most important component is a focused will, along with a faithful mind, an open heart, and a sincere intention to serve—the exact words being less important. Those words are yours to construct to best reflect your intention. Below are the words Gary drafted when blessing water which was used to cleanse his dwelling. He, his wife, and Jim sat on the floor in a circle with the water between them. While reciting the blessing below, they positioned their hands with palms facing the water, and, when finished, shared a brief meditation in silence together. The magical potency of this particular ritual is unknown. Please duplicate or modify as you see fit:
Tuning ourselves to the One Creator, we clear our energies and set our intentions upon this working.
We acknowledge the oneness of all creation. We open ourselves as channels so that the love and light of the one infinite Creator may move through us and into this water.
We ask the infinity present within this water to awaken so that the water may be charged and blessed for purification and service-to-others working.
We thank the water for serving as our friend for the purpose of spiritual cleansing. And we thank the One Creator for this water and this working.
I am assuming that we would prepare the blessed water the same as we prepare the water for the instrument to drink after a session and then would wipe the windows and doors with this water… probably have to be done in a bucket, and… I would like to know if this is correct, and what was meant by salting of the windows and doors?
I am Ra. Firstly, you may bless the water yourselves or may request so-called holy water from any blessed place; that is, blessed by intention. Secondly, the water shall be carefully shaken from the fingers along the sills of all windows and doors as they have been opened. Thirdly, prior to the sprinkling of this cleansing, blessing sacrament of water, the salt shall be trailed along these sills in a line and again allowed to exist in this configuration for 36 to 48 hours. Then the virgin broom may ritually sweep the salt out of each window and doorway, sweeping with each stroke the less fortunate of the vibrations within the dwelling which might find coexistence with your group difficult.
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.
Would Ra comment on the technique of blessing the water we will use to sprinkle on the salt? I assume we just sprinkle the water directly off of our finger tips onto the line of salt. And also how much, in general, should be sprinkled on the salt? How wet we should get it? This is trivial, but I’d like to get it right.
I am Ra. The blessing of the water may be that one we have previously given, or it may be that one which is written within the liturgy of this instrument’s distortion of the worship of the One Creator, or it may simply be obtained from what you call your Catholic Church in the form of holy water.
The intention of blessing is the notable feature of blessed water. The water may be sprinkled not so that all salt is soaked but so that a goodly portion has been dampened. This is not a physical working. The substances need to be seen in their ideal state so that water may be seen to be enabling the salt.
Would cleansing of the nature suggested for the other house just south of the airport in Atlanta be advisable for the 893 Oakdale Road address?
I am Ra. We note that any residence, whether previously benign, as is the one of which you speak, or previously of malignant character, needs the basic cleansing of the salt, water, and broom. The benign nature of the aforementioned domicile is such that the cleansing could be done in two portions; that is, no egress or entrance through any but one opening for one cleansing. Then egress and entrance from all other places while the remaining portal is properly sealed. The placing of salt may be done at the place which is not being sealed the first of the cleansings, and the salt may be requested to act as seal and yet allow the passage of gentle spirits such as yourselves. We suggest that you speak to this substance and name each entity for which permission is needed in order to pass. Let no person pass without permission being asked of the salt. This is the case in the residence of which you speak.
