A Chant to Purify a Sacred Space

Here is a little chant that I use to purify my sacred space. Using the appropriate correspondences for how you set up your own special sacred space, chant this phrase three times--

"Per sanctimonia of sal salis, quod per distraho vox of unda, EGO dispel quicumque est infitialis, quod occurro ut meus penitus".

What a great discovery this blog. I will read it always, being thirsty of your wisdom: as a man, I can’t have a direct touch with the Goddess, because we need a female medium to get closer to Her, and your blog is suitable for this aim.

I especially like your Latin hymns. Are you a scholar of Classics? “Ego precor per Luna” is a first hemistich of a iambic trimeter. Is it yours? I’ll search in Seneca’s Medea, among Medea’s prayers to Hecate and to the Moon, perhaps I find something similar.

I hope you had a happy Full Moon. For me is only a good night to worship Her more than usual: of course, She doesn’t give me all the energies that gives to women.

To Fira,
Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I am glad that you are enjoying it.

To Murcielago,
Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you are enjoying it.
No, I am not a scholar. My great-grandmother was originally from Athens, Greece, and she taught me just enough Latin to help me be able to write my spells and stuff in Latin. My grandmother and mother also did that. We felt that it added to the beauty and mystery of the religion and rituals.

'EGO precor per luna' was something my great-grandmother always used to honor the Full Moon. I really don't know where she got it from.

Have a great week.

Hi Ravenmoon, thank you for visiting my site - I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is interesting that you feel your invocations are stronger if they're in latin. I thought the same way when I first became Pagan, then I realised I didn't need to translate my invocations and that they were stronger in my own words and language.

You might find you don't need to use the occasional English word (I noticed you included the words "may" and "of") if you changed the case of the noun and the tense of the verb. If you use the genative of a word it will always mean "of something", dative is "to" or "for" and ablative is "by", "with" or "from".

We had to learn Latin at school, so I studied it for five years and loved translating Roman poets and some of Caesar's Gallic War Book 2. I don't use it very often now, but it's useful for understanding English grammar.

Blessings Sarah,

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Yeah, I know I don't have to use the Latin language for my spells, chants, invocations, etc: however, I mainly use it to add beauty and mystery to my Path.

It also helps to 'shield' my work from those who are predjudice against my Path. If they do not understand Latin, then they won't know what it says.

I know that our own words and language can have just as much power, it's just that the Latin language (like French or Romanian) is really beautiful to me.

I have all 8 seasons of Charmed on dvd, and I will only watch them in French. It is just so cool to hear that show in such a beautiful language. :)

Have a great week and thank you again for visiting my site.
