The Water Cleansing
(or, “Kala Rite”)
A Faery Ritual of Purification
{Black Rose Class Excerpt}
By Storm Faerywolf

The Water Cleansing, or “Kala rite” is arguably one of the most important pieces of Faery tradition practice. From the Hawaiian word meaning “to loosen, untie, or absolve” this simple ritual provides us with an opportunity to transform negative energies and blockages within ourselves, as well as to reclaim the power that these blocks have “tied up” within our energy bodies.

Simple Version

Items needed: A glass of clear, fresh water

Ground and Center. Perform a Three Souls Alignment. Recall something that you wish to be free of… a bad habit, negative trait, a fear, a bad relationship, etc. Allow yourself to really feel the presence of this thing, along with any emotions that may be attached to it. As you continue your meditative breathing allow these sensations to build within you.

When you feel that these feelings are at their peak, breathe three deep breaths of power, and will this negative energy out of your energy-body and into the glass of water, which now appears to your mind’s eye as thick, black, heavy, and toxic.

Begin to charge yourself up by breathing the Holy Fire. When you have a good charge built up place both hands palms downward over the surface of the water and will some of the charge into it. Sense how the negativity in the water is now being transformed… what was toxic and dark, is now beneficial and light. See the water shining with a crystalline luminescence, humming and singing with sheer and pure power.

When you feel that the transformation is complete, drink the entire glass of water feeling how the light is now merging with your body’s fluids and spreading out to every part of you. Feel how this power your power now transformed and purified is breaking down all blocks within you… spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental… and is making you strong, whole, and healthy.

Items needed: A glass of pure, fresh water

Your Star Goddess candle

Ground and Center. Perform a Three Souls Alignment. Light the Star Goddess candle with the traditional prayer.

Hold the glass of water in front of your lower belly; the anchor point for the fetch. As above, recall something that you wish to be free of. Allow yourself to really feel the presence of this thing, along with any emotions that may be attached to it. Allow these sensations to build within you.

When you feel that these feelings are at their peak, breathe three deep breaths of power, and will this negative energy out of your energy-body and into the glass of water, seeing it turn thick, black, heavy, and toxic. Feel that this negative presence in the water becomes like a dark star, whose gravitational pull is drawing out even more negativity from within your energy body… issues and blocks that you hadn’t even considered are now being drawn out of you and into the water. Continue your meditative breathing while allowing the negativity to be drawn out of you.

Now, raise the glass up to heart level so that you can see the light of the Star Goddess candle reflected through it. While opening up to your own daemon, call out to the Star Goddess to come and assist your transformation:

“I invoke Diana, God Herself, the Ancient Providence,
Which was from the beginning and is for all time,
One, androgynous, the source of all things.
All knowing, all pervading, all powerful,
Ceaseless, eternal, forever unending.”

See Her emerge from everywhere and then step behind you to place Her arms around you… Her hands resting upon your own. Feel Her presence move through your GodSelf and into every part of you. Say:

“Mother… your’s is the cup of the wine of life;
The cauldron of transformation and rebirth.”

Now hear Her say back to you:

“Behold! I am the Mother of all living. And my love is poured upon the earth.”

Now, as you breathe silently intone the phrase “Holy Spirit” on your inhale. On your exhale blow out upon the surface of the water, feeling the Goddess’ presence moving though your souls, through your breath and into the water. See the water shining with a crystalline luminescence, humming and singing with sheer and pure power.

When you feel that the transformation is complete, drink the entire glass of water feeling how the light is now merging with your body’s fluids and spreading out to every part of you. Feel how this power your power now transformed and purified is breaking down all blocks within you… spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental… and is making you strong, whole, and healthy.

Place your hands over your lower belly and send your fetch love and support. Say three nice things about yourself, and send the feelings of these things down into your fetch. Give thanks to the Goddess for assisting you. Extinguish the candle and breathe in silence for the span of three breaths. It is done.
