Bonding Rituals

(Blood, Bone, Mind, Soul, Spirit)

Bonding Ritual:

The bonding rituals are all the same, except for the Soul and Spirit rituals. Those are reserved for the Shai'Tal to bless others with. No non-clan member is allowed to speak those words without permission from a reigning member of the Clan.

  • For the blood bond ritual, the following items are required at set:
  • One lock of hair from each party.
  • One handwritten note, upon natural parchment. It can be anything.
  • One drop of blood, from the right hand's ring finger.

One candle must be lit upon a circular crystal plate. The drops of blood must be then dripped into the flame, and the locks of hair strewn and twisted slowly about the shaft of the candle as the wax burns down. The note must be burned in it's entirety, and the two sides must be present to watch the candle burn from beginning to end.

As this is happening, from the moment of the process, you would chant the following words to be bonded by blood:

"gi'andias dut'rer'vag adir himeen Naeere A'gol'barass".

Once the candle has been burned, and the plate has been covered by the mixture, you are to each take half of the mixed wax, and bury it beneath your homes.

You will then be bound by blood.

 

Marriage Rituals

Marriage is considered a sacred bond between two spirits and souls. It does not have to do with the blood, mind or the bone, because those do not transcend time and place, they hold back what is true and meant to be, at the expense of the heart and soul and spirit.

The Shai'Tal believe for each being there is one mate per lifetime or per soul and spirit. To that one being they are bonded for an eternity, whether they choose to love one another or not, they remain true to that one.

The Marriage Ritual for Commoners, is spoken in Common Tongue, and if performed by a Priestess of the Shai'Tal, it is blessed afterwards, with the blessing of the serpent.

The common ceremony is as follows:

Priestess/Priests:

"For an eternity, we are meant to walk these lands. Through the winds, the rains, the turn of the seasons, we all have what we are bound for. Often we gather together, for the wrong reasons. We bury the right ones and blur them so that our path can no longer be seen in truth and purity of love.

Today, we gather to celebrate that purity in it's true form.

Bringing together this love, we shall honour it with our silent praise and willingness to unify them in both darkness and light, for they shall walk through both.

(Female First, to Male.)

"(Name), turn to your love, your soul and spirit, look to his eyes and speak the following words:

I, (name) , give to you, my soul and spirit, my own. I profess my eternity to you, and allow you my heart, the most beautiful and precious gift which may be given to another. I give you the rain, my tears, the wind, my whispers, the storm, my kiss.

I accept what you are and shall be, and in turn, I accept and wish a thousand lifetimes with you. Bonded in love and soul, I am."

(Male, to Female)

"(Name), turn to your love, your soul and spirit, look to his eyes and speak the following words:

I, (name) , give to you, my soul and spirit, my own. I profess my eternity to you, and allow you my heart, the most beautiful and precious gift which may be given to another. I give you the rain, my tears, the wind, my whispers, the storm, my kiss.

I accept what you are and shall be, and in turn, I accept and wish a thousand lifetimes with you. Bonded in love and soul, I am."

Priestess/Priest:

Please turn fully towards me, and extend for me your offerings to each other. (Typically Rings).

I bless these as offerings, symbols to ourselves, that you have been united in love, soul and spirit. You are now husband and wife, soul and spirit, make you walk the endless path of existence arm in arm for all eternity.

You may now kiss, and give thanks to the gods and goddesses.

Cleanings Rituals

(Blood, Soul, Item)

 

Cleansing Rituals

The cleansings rituals are all the same, except for the cleansing of Items.

For the Blood And Soul Cleansing, you must have and do the following. There are no exceptions.

  • The shell (body) of the blood or soul being cleansed must be laid down upon a flat surface.
  • The body must then be stripped from the waist to just below the chest cavity so the stomach is bared.
  • Upon the stomach, once cleared, an incision must be made with a sharp shard of crystal.
  • Having already gathered Oakwart, Soapwart, Abfrom Leaf, Blackmint and Jilnt Mint, you must have mashed it into a paste so that it is oiled.
  • Spooning it into the incision, it must mix with the blood.
  • You must allow the blood to drain from the body for one turn of the wind. (One Hour) Until it has drained almost completely.
  • Ye must now close the wound, using only a natural salve. Afterwards, between both life and death, ye must wait one turn of the moon (One Day).
  • Once the turn of the moon has progressed, liquify the Black Mint in steaming spring water, the water must be pure. The contents are then given in the form of drink to the shell of the being being cleansed.
  • If you have progressed, and the spirit has deemed it so, the shell will be cleansed, the blood and soul shall be cleansed.

_________________________

  • Item Cleansing is rather simple.
  • You take two parts spring water, one part lavender and lilac oil. Dipping the item into the the scented water, you then steam it for two turns of the wind, and it is cleansed. You then drink the water and bless the gods for cleansing both you and your affected item.
