Ritual To Aid Spiritual Communication

Gather Your Supplies:


  1. Choose a quiet and sacred space where you can focus without interruptions.
  2. Place your supplies on a clean altar or table. Light the charcoal and prepare the incense.
  3. Begin by lighting the white candle. Set your intention for clear and effective communication with the spiritual realm.
  4. Take a moment to ground yourself and connect with your spiritual guides or ancestors. Call upon them respectfully to assist you in this ritual.
  5. Mix the Rompe Saraguey with the other herbs, Frankincense or Myrrh resin, and Mugwort in the small bowl or dish. Hold the bowl in your hands and envision the blend as a powerful conduit for spiritual energy and clarity.
  6. Speak your intention aloud or silently. For example, say, “With this herb blend, I seek to open the channels of spiritual communication and receive divine guidance.”
  7. Dress the white candle with Psychic Vision Oil by gently rubbing the oil from the centre to the top and bottom of the candle. This step enhances your connection to the spiritual realm.
  8. Place your offering near the candle as a gesture of respect and gratitude to the spirits.
  9. Invoke the spirits you wish to communicate with, calling upon ancestors, spirit guides, or deities associated with communication (such as Mercury or Eleggua in hoodoo).
  10. Take a pinch of the herb blend and sprinkle it over the charcoal. As the herbs burn, visualize any barriers to spiritual communication dissipating.
  11. Write down your questions, intentions, or messages on paper. Hold the paper close to the candle flame to activate your words.
  12. Sit quietly in meditation, focusing on your breath and staying open to receiving insights or messages from the spiritual realm.
  13. Pay attention to any sensations, images, or thoughts that come to you during this time.
  14. Thank the spirits, ancestors, or deities for their presence and guidance.
  15. Allow the candle to burn down safely or snuff it out with a snuffer; never blow it out.
  16. Dispose of any remaining herb blend respectfully, returning it to the earth as an offering.

This ritual can be adapted and personalised based on your spiritual beliefs and practices. Approach this work with reverence, humility, and an open heart to receive the wisdom and guidance of the unseen realms.
