Oil Rituals A to Z

There are countless rituals involving occult oils.


Experiment and modify the spells to suit your particular purpose.


For it is your mental energy and the power of your subconscious mind which is the true magic.


In Anna Riva's words:

In this A to Z list you will find one or more which is formulated to help you solve the problem, do the job or assist you with the situation you are facing.

No attempt has been made to give exact instructions, for the user should choose his own methods of use.

In many spells, suggestions of "apply to the body," "anoint the candle," or "add to incense" is given because this has been proved successful for the author. But, unless specific warning of how NOT to use the oil, the reader can and should experiment with the spell to find the most convenient way to achieve the desired results.

A

ABRA MELIN

Cast a spell upon the person you wish to obey your wishes by writing your request on the reverse of a Seal of Aziabelis from the sixth and seventh Books of Moses.

If the desire is for a beneficial purpose, use Dove's Blood ink, but if your aim is to harm, then the Dragon's Blood ink would be more appropriate.

Anoint each corner of the talisman with oil as you chant with each drop:

Do my bidding, I demand,

Follow quickly what I say.

This is my firm command,

Obey at once, or rue the day.

One, two, three, four,

Five spaces in a row.
