Before a meditation session, or other meditative practice such as divination, it is important to attune the mind and body. This focuses the awareness into a meditative state while also asking for guidance and protection.
Light the meditation candle.
Orb and Sky, my kith and kin,
I ask for your guidance during this meditative working.
Light the meditation incense.
Keepers of the elemental quarters,
I ask for your protection during this meditative working.
Assume a meditative posture.
With the dominant hand, sign a constructive pentagram.
I seek what I am to know,
for the highest good and harming none.
As I will it, so mote it be.
Focus on the breath; deep inhale and slow exhale.
Relax the body, from the feet up through the head.
Calm the mind, heart, and soul.
