Witches' Flying Ointment Ritual
☽ Sit down with your favorite ritual tools around you. Candles, crystals, incense, etc. will all help to create the mood and add energy to your intentions. Amethyst is particularly helpful here.
☽ Set a clear intention. This is the time to define your purpose for your travels. It may help to write it down and read over it several times to create a strong focus.
☽ When you are done setting your intention, retreat to your sacred resting space. If you have a smudge stick, or spray, clear the space of any negativity. Lie down. Massage the Flying Ointment at your pulse points and between your eyebrows, at your third eye.
☽ Close your eyes and clear your mind. Breathe in with deep, cleansing breaths. Contract and then relax every muscle in your body, one by one, starting with your head and ending at your toes. Take a final deep breath and relax your body fully. Feel it melt into the mattress as you lose tactile awareness.
☽ Visualize yourself walking towards a gate. Beyond the gate there is only a thick blanket of fog which you cannot see past. If you are summoning a spirit guide, crone, or would like the company of a spirit animal, this is where you will meet them. They will be waiting for you at the gate. Greet them, honoring their presence and opening yourself to their guidance.
☽ Visualize the gate opening. If you have a spirit guide, crone, or animal, they will walk through first. Follow them. As you walk through, the fog will begin to clear. Slowly, as the landscape comes into focus, your intention will manifest before you. Catch a ride with your spirit guide or crone the first couple of times until you are ready to fly on your own. Here, it helps if your spirit animal is a winged creature..
This ritual is best performed during a full moon.
