This is a ritual that just like the phase can be done whenever the blue moon shows itself since it is built upon that energy. With the full/blue moon falling on Samhain with the Day of the Dead following right behind it it's the perfect time with the veil being so thin.
I wrote this back in 2004 originally for a group and while I have written this ritual using the traditionl three colors so for those of you that own a rainbow colored statue this will work with that robe aspect perfectly as well. If you just have a picture of La Santisima Muerte no worries it will work for it as well.
Also within this ritual we will also be working with one of the seven sacred seals of La Santisima Muerte which in turn the candle and the petition will coinside within the context of each other EX: if you are wanting to improve you marriage or love relationship then you will prepare the fourth candle for love or marrage work using the Santa Muerte Love seal and the petition will entail what in the relarionship needs improvement or needs to change.
Another thing you will notice is that I have added the phrase 'So Mote It Be' followed by "Amen" in parentheses. I am leaving the optioin of using either phrase you feel comfortable using.
And one final note about this ritual is that while it has been re-written for a single individual if you have several family members and or friends who are also devotees then this is a great opportunity to make it a group gathering and raise a cone of power. All you need to do is change I to we and depending on how many individuals participate just add more candles, bread and tequila shots.
So for this ritual you are going to need the following items:
- Copal Incense
- charcol disc
- 1 white candle
- 1 red candle
- 1 black candle
- 1 candle for a specific purpose
- Santa Muerte Seal of a specific purpose
- Two piece of bread
- Two shots of tequila
- fireproof container
The candles are to be positioned in the following order: Black, White, Red and fourth candle of specific color choice and if you have Santa Muerte Oil or you want to dress the candles for a specific purposes you can add a bit to the candles but it's not mandatory and it won't lessen the effectiveness of the ritual in any way.
You will begin by lighting the disc and allowing it to burn for a few minutes then adding the copal incense, if you have one of those burners you can grab ahold of then take a few minutes to cleanse the area around the altar and any participants then place it back on the altar.
Next you will light the white candle and recite the following:
Mi Blanca Santisima Muerte, Breath of Transformation, Spark of Creation that banishes the darkness, Rain of Inspiration, Soil of Foundation, COME! I ask that you stand firm to guard and protect, activate and fulfill. Support the magick created here by hearing my request. So Mote it be (Amen)
You will now light the red candle and recite the following:
Mi Roja Santisima Muerte, Breath of Transformation, Spark of Creation that banishes the darkness, Rain of Inspiration, Soil of Foundation, COME! I ask that you stand firm to guard and protect, activate and fulfill. Support the magick created here by hearing my request. So Mote it be (Amen)
You will now light the black candle and recite the following:
Mi Negra Santisima Muerte, Breath of Transformation, Spark of Creation that banishes the darkness, Rain of Inspiration, Soil of Foundation, COME! I ask that you stand firm to guard and protect, activate and fulfill. Support the magick created here by hearing my request. So Mote it be (Amen)
Now depending on what you want to manifest within this ritual you will then lay out one of the Seven Sacred Seals of La Sastisima Muerte that is found within her sacred Bible and place the fourth candle that has been prepared that coinsides with the seal. Then on the piece of paper you will write out what you want to manifest. Then you will fold the paper once then once again. REMEMBER if you are trying to attract something you fold it towards you if you are getting rid of something then you fold it away from you.
Now this part is best performed outside but you will take the fireproof container and light the paper while you recite the following:
Write a Wish, Then to Flame
Santa Muerte's blessing yours to claim.
Hear my wish sent into flight
To journey on in Blue Moon's Light
So Mote It Be (Amen)
Now you will take the bread slices and bless them by saying:
Santisima Muerte, I give thanks for all that you have provided for me in this physical plane. Bless my body as I consume your sweet bread of strength So Mote It Be (Amen)
Place the bread upon the plate and now take the two shots of tequila in your hands and bless them by saying the following:
Santisima Muerte, I give thanks for all that you have provided for me in this spiritual plane. Bless my body as I consume your sweet milk of knowledge So Mote It Be (Amen)
Now taking one slice of bread and say: May I never hunger So Mote It Be (Amen)
Now take the tequila shot and say: May I never thirst So Mote It Be (Amen)
Now place your bread and tequila to the side and now take Santisima Muerte's Bread and Tequila and recite the following:
Santisima Muerte, I thank you for blessing this space. I know that a part of you is always me, as a still small voice that guides and nurtures. Help me to listen to that voice, to trust it and trust in my magick
Santisima Muerte I thank you for your pressence and protection. Keep me rooted in your rich soil so my spirit grows steadily, keep me flowing ever towards wholeness in body, mind and spirit, keep your fires ever burning within my soul to light up any darkness and drive it away, keep your winds blowing fresh with ideas and hopefulness until I return to your protection again So Mote It Be (Amen)
NOW at this point you consume you slice of bread and then down your shot of tequila as a form of grounding yourself because as we all know her energy is very strong and if you should ever find yourself with a Blue Moon on October 31 magickal things will happen!
