The sparks of divinity that were place within me by the Goddess, which is that that binds me to Goddess, and God forever. Through the inner flame I draw upon the divine energy which is always accessable to me in endless quantities. I light this candle to remind me now and for all time of the eternal flame that burns within me. and that I shall never forget this again.

Behold I _____________ declaire myself a spiritual child of the Goddess, and God. I make this pledge of my own free will that I shall alway respect the wiccan path for which I bound, along with all other paths. That I will alway abide by the wiccan law and the law of three. I ask that the Goddess, and God be witness to this my oath, and to help me to make it as deep and full as possible. By my will, I will it so, so mote it be.

Blessed be my feet, so that I may walk always in the paths of spirit.
Blessed be my knees, which I will kneel at the altars of the ancient ones.
Blessed be my loins, which bring forth life, joy, and creativity.
Blessed be my heart, which is formed in beauty, that I may give love and receive it.
Blessed be my lips, which will speak the words of power in time to come.
Blessed be my eyes, That I may see all things clearly.
Blessed be my crown, that I may receive always the messages of the Goddess.
