Closing the Ritual
Whatever your purpose for ritual—be it a Sabbat or a quick, simple spell—it’s important to intentionally close the work and the sacred space before returning to “business as usual” in ordinary reality. (Neglecting to do so can result in feeling somewhat chaotic or “out of sorts,” and possibly troubled sleep.)
Once your spiritual work is done, “release” the Elements by thanking them individually, perhaps moving in a counter-clockwise direction as you do so. If you have cast a circle, close it by walking counter-clockwise three times, visualizing any remaining magical energy returning to the ground. Stand quietly for a moment, clearing your mind of the ritual and/or spellwork, knowing that you’ve sent your power out into the Universe and that your intentions will be manifested in the way and at the time which is best for all.
