The centring or grounding
Light the incense, using wand, blade or hand bless and say: “I do consecrate and bless thee Oh elements of air and fire, to drive out all impurities and make thee fit for use in this our rite.”
Once the ritual had ended we again enjoyed our refreshments, some rest time and conversation. I was appreciative of the compliments made, as it was evident that the group enjoyed and were equally impressed by, both the ritual and my ‘performance’ as the Robin.
