Making Holy Water

Items needed

To make holy water, it’s best to use a natural, flowing water, if readily available.
Sources for such water are rivers, lakes, brooks and underground springs. I keep extra on hand in a large mason jar. I melt snow in the Winter.

I live in a capital city and use bottled still spring water.

How to Perform the Blessing

1. Pour some salt in your left hand.

2. Use the Trinity blessing gesture (Byzantine) of the right hand.


With your right hand, fold the pinky and ring fingers down while crossing the thumb over them. Your fore and middle fingers remain upright (this is the Blessing Hand).

3. Trace the Fora over the salt

and say:
May this salt be cleansed and blessed,
in the Name of the Mother, (trace Fora a second time),
and of the Daughter, (trace Fora a third time)
and of the Great Mother.

Iot ‘E Voh.
(The Sacred Name of Power, IHV by saying the E with the out breath, it is breathed rather than pronounced. It may also be pronounced Yot ‘E Voh.) [1]

4. Then, with your right hand, take three pinches of salt out of your left hand and pour them into the bowl of water. Pour any remaining salt along the inside of your door threshold as a blessing and protection of the home.

5. With object blessed wand or right forefinger, stir the water three times sunwise – clockwise.

6. Form the Blessing Hand and trace the Fora over the water while saying:

May this water be blessed in the Name of the Mother, (trace Fora a second time), and of the Daughter, (trace Fora a third time)

and of the Great Mother.

Iot ‘E Voh.

Notes
[1] In The Coming Age Issue 1, Winter & Moura 1976: The Symbolism of The Sacred Names Article: “Iot ̓ E Vo (IVH) is the primordial name of Deity. The symbolism of the letters represents in order the three Persons of the Trinity – Iot is always the first principle or primal urge, thus in its most sublime sense, it is the unknowable Dark Mother – Absolute Deity, before time and before space, from Whom all manifestation proceeds. ‘E the aspirate or ‘breathing’ of the Ancient Greeks represents the breath or Spirit of Deity (in both Greek and Hebrew the word for breath and spirit is the same: Pneuma in Greek, Ruach in Hebrew); the [Celestial] Mother and Creator of the universe. Vo is the letter of [sacrifice] and as such it represents the Daughter.”
