Ok, I have my witchy necklaces, a book about designing rituals, and the will to do it. I am going to design my own unique shabbat rituals.
I'm going to pick and choose, using elements from traditional mystical Judaism, jewitchery and shamanism.
This is going to be fun. First, I need to outline a general plan which I can develop as I go.
To honor sacred time within the sacred space of my domain, to put behind the past, to create a new beginning which respects my Divine Image and the sacred feminine, and to recreate the path of my life as a solitary traveler in devekut with the Divine.
Crafted & Consecrated Tools:
ritual wash cup & basin
consecrated flame source
incense & censer
fish, foods & challah
challah tray & cover
book of shadows, grimoires, dream diary
sigils and symbols
bachall (witch's wand)
boline (use as a challah knife)
pentacle & hexagram intertwined
kosher rock salt & container
handmade marzipan bowl
consecrated ritual water container
stones with ogham & hebrew letter inscriptions
green living plant
Basic Ritual Elements:
statement of intent
water & salt sprinkling
casting a ritual circle & banishing
establishing the gates of the elements
contemplation & meditation
shabbat morning kiddush, etc.
study & meditation
statement of release
opening the circle
completion, integration & grounding
Now, I have a the beginnings of a plan. Many of the items I already have, but some I still need to purchase and/or craft myself. I think I'm going to handcraft some the items I already have too. It may take me awhile, given my longstanding and deplorable economic situation, but all will indeed be truly sacred when I've accomplished it.
